Asking people out

I usually respond well to I'd like to go do X with you sometime. Are you free next Wednesday?

Where X is replaced by specific activity of asker's choice. I generally prefer to be asked with an activity and time in mind. I know they aren't particular important, but it shows that someone isn't completely wishy-washy. If I don't like doing the activity or am not free at that time, I'll suggest alternatives. I dislike being asked out where I am then supposed to come up with something to do:

  • Girl: Hey wanna get together to do something sometime?
  • Phil: Sure, what did you have in mind?
  • Girl: I don't know. What do you want to do?

ARG! It's a sign of someone who either has no spine, or can't be bothered to put much thought into things, or both.

This is a cross-post from a crack bored discussion.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
