Maybe they're intimidated. Or maybe it's today's culture, courting and dating have gone out the window! Drop some hints if you're interested, good luck!
let's go out.
I find most women give cryptic answers... very confusing
That question is really two questions: "are you seeing anyone" and "would you like me to ask you out." On one level they're asking to find out the answer, on another they're asking to see how you react to them asking,
If you were to say "Yes, I have a husband, so you'd better watch yourself" in a sultry voice while grabbing their crotch, they're probably not going to take that as a rejection. On the other hand, if you say "Nahh" in a bored way while looking at your watch, they're not going to take it as an invitation.
Maybe they are a little shy. Turn the tables on them if u interested.
