Avoiding Awkward

“Hi, I was wondering if you’d like to go out sometime?”

How hard is it to say that to someone?
And if the wrong person says it to you, how awkward is it to say “um, not really?”

Yes, it is sweaty, messy, scary stuff even if you know it shouldn’t be.

Then again, how often have you sat at home stewing? “I should have said something. I wish I’d had the nerve to say I was interested.”

Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. The world isn’t going to be handed to you on a silver platter. What have you really got to lose?

Huh? Oh, sorry. Slipped into a little vortex of “things my parents used to say to me.” But they sort of ring true, don’t they?

So here’s the deal.

Greenlight Cards can make it easier. With a Greenlight Card, you don’t have to find the right words or put someone on the spot. The card does the talking for you.

You do have to take the card out of its cool little tin, walk over and hand it to that certain someone who’s making it hard for you to put words together. But you can do that. I know you can.

And anyone who isn’t interested in you has something wrong with him. He’s the loser, not you.

Oops. Slipping back into that vortex again.

So what are you waiting for? Go get ‘em. Let someone know you’re interested. Dating on your terms—it’ll make you proud of yourself. And it should.
