Sure, sometimes us ladies make the first move and ask people out. But other times, we just want someone else to do it. It’s just flattering to have someone make the first move. Sorry if that sounds traditional, but IDGAF imma do me.

And so in those moments where we want someone to do the asking out, or we’re just too shy to come right out and say it, we drop subtle (and not so subtle) hints. We drop handkerchiefs and bend and snap all over the damn place. Or we’re just like “I REALLY LIKE BEER TOO.”

So if you’re wondering if someone is dropping you some hints, read the following post. These people admit some of the methods they use to tell people they are DTF or want to actually date them. Some of them are harder to detect, but some methods are pretty solid and obvious.

But let’s be clear, JUST BECAUSE A GIRL IS NICE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN SHE WANTS TO DATE YOU. Seriously, that is rule #1. All you ladies out there know what I’m talking about. Being nice isn’t a sign that someone wants you. Sometimes people are just nice. So don’t get butt hurt if you think you read the signs wrong and she’s not into it. It happens all the time, so just move on.

These are the hints people drop when they want to be asked out:


Usually just drop my handkerchief for him to pick up.


I laugh at every joke he says. I can’t help it, it’s not being fake, I just get a nervous giggle that won’t seem to go away.


I mention being single as casually as I can.


Tell all his friends I want to bang him. Good wingmen always pass it on!
