Being a woman, it’s particularly hard to ask someone out for a date (women don’t have a lot of practice at this).  But I do believe it’s important to do that occasionally.  

In our local paper they ran a survey asking for singles to vote on who the area’s most eligible bachelor was.  I didn’t send a vote to the paper, instead I waited until the winner had been announced then clipped the article and sent it out inside a card to a man that that I knew and wanted to ask out.  

I wrote that I thought “he” was the town’s most eligible bachelor and asked if he would be interested in having lunch with me someday – my treat.  I enclosed my phone number.  A few days later I got a phone call and we arranged to get together.
