Five ways to ask an NGU girl out

Carlee Colvard, Assistant Editor

It's THAT time of the year - the time of mushy love notes, chocolate that is way too expensive and sitting alone in your dorm room because you didn't have the guts to ask that certain someone out. 

Don't be that guy. 

It's time to get out of your dorm room, ask a girl out, feed her food, call her pretty and grant her that "Mrs. Degree". 

Are you the guy that gets chicken when it comes to asking a girl out? Are you intimidated by the thought of actually having to talk to a girl to see if she wants to get a bite to eat? If so, you've come to the right place. 

Here are some tips to help you ask an NGU girl out and score that date for Valentine's Day. Have fun, be creative, and remember, if it doesn't work out, you tried and it's not our fault.

1. Ask her out in person.

Girls appreciate you taking the extra effort to actually talk to them in person. It shows you’re willing to take initiative and it’s more personable because you’re not hiding behind a screen.

4. Take no for an answer, but don't give up.

When a girl doesn’t want to go out on a date, take it as a no and not a challenge. It’s okay to be rejected. If she’s not the one, then God has someone better in mind for you. Don’t give up.

5. Just don't ask anyone out. It's okay to embrace your singleness. It's okay to keep all the chocolate for yourself.

That’s it - just don’t.
