When it comes to making the first move, girls have as much game as boys. These days, when gender stereotypes are considered archaic, taking initiative is anyone’s prerogative. So if you’re thinking of chatting up that guy at the bar or finally asking your crush out, go for it!
Here are three stories from girls who won their SOs over by being strong, confident women.
"I clicked the profile of a guy I was matched with on a dating app and read that his childhood dream was to become a rockstar. I thought he actually looked like one with his long, wavy hair so I messaged him and said, 'For what it’s worth, you look like a rockstar to me.' From there, we exchanged messages, went on a date, and became a couple." - Coni, 32
"My cousins and I were in line to get popcorn at the movies when I noticed that a really cute guy was standing behind us. I wanted him to notice me so I intentionally whispered to my cousin, 'Ang cute no’ng nasa likod!' It worked! We both pretended he didn’t hear what I said, but it sparked his interest and gave him the confidence to strike up a conversation. To this day, he still teases me about what he calls the lamest pickup line ever." - Meg, 21
"I had a crush on one of my guy friends and we were always flirty with one another. One day, he was showing me pictures from his Japan trip. There was one of him with Mt. Fuji in the background. I said, 'Gorgeous!' after which he started telling me about the scenery. I stopped him and said, 'I was talking about you.' My pickup line worked and we finally took things to the next level." - Diane, 29
