There is this formal for my sorority coming up. There is a boy that I would very much like to ask, I just don't know if he likes me like that. I have never asked anyone out before and I am terrified. I hate the way I am, I feel so inadequate, especially compared to him. I feel ugly, fat, and like a nothing. I've had past boyfriends and other events that have more than drilled this into my head and after a while the bad stuff is easier to believe. What do I do?
Normally my advice for you would be to suck it up and ask him out, but this is a different situation. I would like to say that you need to find some worth within yourself, because after all it is called SELF-esteem. I think, from the way you write, that your issues may be more than just a bout of low self-worth. I wonder if you have gone to see someone about the issues you are facing. Those issues I can not handle for you over the internet. However if you want to know how to ask the guy out, that I can help with.
Like I said before my advice for you is to just say,"Hey (insert name), my sorority has a formal coming up. Would you like to (be my date/go with me?)" It's simple and always works to get you an answer. Since you have your other issues, it may be easier for you to ask via text, im, or Facebook. All you have to do is click a few keys and boom it's done. The wait may be excruciating, but it will be easier to initiate.
Hope this helps.
