I have only tried to ask out a girl one time and the result was a disaster. I didn't even get to asking her. Instead I got so nervous that I forgot to breath and fainted. This has been terribly embaresing for me since the only other times which I have ever fainted have been the results of dehydration, blood loss, and severe exhaustion (I didn't sleep for 2 weeks). This happened about 4 years ago when I was a junior in highschool. Does anybody have any advice to help not becocme so nervous when asking somebody out? Something else that has confused me. Some girls have told me "You're so cute!" and "You're adorable." Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I've heard women use the word cute in many different ways while men seem to only use it to describe things like babies and other things like that. I'm sort of confused about that, but I'm really concerned about how nervous I get when I'm around girls that I like. So if anybody has any advice for how to make yourself less nervous when asking somebody out, I could really use it.
