Why are teenage girls so shy?
All we do is talk about how adorable a guy is,
but then we're too chicken to say anything.
Maybe it's a fear of rejection, a hatred of hearing the word "no."

Is it really that hard to just ask a guy out?
Just talk to him,
tell him that his hair looks really great today.
We're teenagers,
we've known how to flirt since we were in 7th grade,
and we have had years to master it.
Guys, don't think that you're off the hook.
You're just as shy as the ladies.

FYI: staring at someone with your mouth wide open,
making goo-goo eyes does NOT count as making a move.
Open your mouth for the right reason...
to say something.
Your friends are sick and tired of playing the "he-said-she-said" game.
Take a chance, make your move,
we're teens.
There's no time like the present to take a chance.

Who knows?
You might just be glad you took that little leap.
