    Partly it is tradition — even today, some girls are raised to believe that guys ask girls out.
    Partly it is personality – a shy girl, a sensitive girl is less likely to ask a guy out. It takes much to conquer shyness, and more to conquer rejection.
    Maybe it’s confusion sometimes – the girl isn’t quite sure about you or your affections.
    And it could just be bad timing for you — if you are expecting certain girls to ask you out, perhaps in the recent past they asked other guys and were rejected. That’s enough to make someone stop for a while, not take a chance. Hopefully you never are stubborn enough to say, “I think she should do the asking, and if she doesn’t, then no date,” because you really could end up losing. If you really like someone, go for it.

    I guess for me it’s definitely that fear factor of getting rejected and it’s pretty easy to cop out and tell yourself “well if he really likes me, he’ll ask me out” Also, sometimes I tell myself that I’m reading too much into the guys actions and that although he’s doing things that seem like flirting he’s not actually interested and that I’m just projecting my wishful thinking onto him and I don’t want to ask him out then turn what friendship or whatever we do have awkward. so I guess two big reasons for me are 1. Fear of rejection 2. Doubt that he actually likes me
