Catch your man!.From the official web site of Al Capp productions:."Sadie Hawkins Day, an American folk event, made its debut in Al Capp's Li'l Abner strip November 15, 1937. Sadie Hawkins was 'the homeliest gal in the hills' who grew tired of waiting for the fellows to come a courtin'. Her father, Hekzebiah Hawkins, a prominent resident of Dogpatch, was even more worried about Sadie living at home for the rest of his life, so he decreed the first annual Sadie Hawkins Day, a foot race in which the unmarried gals pursued the town's bachelors, with matrimony the consequence.
By the late 1930's the event had swept the nation and had a life of its own. Life magazine reported over 200 colleges holding Sadie Hawkins Day events in 1939, only two years after its inception. It became a woman empowering rite at high schools and college campuses, long before the modern feminist movement gained prominence. The basis of Sadie Hawkins Day is that women and girls take the initiative in inviting the man or boy of their choice out on a date, typically to a dance attended by other bachelors and their aggressive dates.
When Al Capp created the event, it was not his intention to have the event occur annually on a specific date because it inhibited his freewheeling plotting. However, due to its enormous popularity and the numerous fan letters Capp received, the event became an annual event in the strip during the month of November, lasting four decades.".Now here are my 5 Tips For Women Doing the Asking.
1. Walk by faith not by sight. - Confidence is attractive.
Don't underestimate what who you can attract and persuade when you exude confidence. You get what you expect. Don't be over awed by anyone's appearance.
2. Be sincere, stay centered and remain detached. - Ask your guy out with sincerity showing him you are interested, but don't be so enamored with him that your world collapses if he says no.
Remember there are 3 billion men on the planet and many will say yes when others say no. Keep fishing and move on when necessary! Yet don't sabotage your success of possibly getting a yes by having an inner tendency to expect rejection. Be sincere. Stay centered and strong within, remaining detached from the object of your delight.3. Break the mold and be different.
- Have a game plan to differentiate yourself from the rest of the ladies. Dress, walk, talk and carry yourself differently. Have a plan as to where you'd like to go, what you'd like to do wherewith you can interest him beyond you. Generate a multiplicity of interests to prompt curiosity and mutual desire.4.
Position yourself conveniently for interaction. - Find out what he likes, where he goes and with whom he associates. Conveniently show up at the right place at the right time when endeavoring to ask him out.
The more you show yourself seemingly to be engaged in his interests, involved in his friendships and in his social circle the easier it shall be to persuade him favorably to say yes.5. If butterflies have got the best of you, write him a note expressing your desire and inviting him out. - Not only is a letter easier for you to transfer your feelings by, it minimizes any pain should a less than favorable reply come back.
When we seemingly are unable to communicate when nervous, taking time to put your thoughts on paper can be both therapeutic and present yourself in the best possible way.Happy hunting on Sadie Hawkins Day ladies!..
