Modern dating is far from what it used to be but there’s one tradition we can’t seem to shake- the expectation that men should be the ones to ask women out.
Blogger Oloni proposed a challenge to her female Twitter followers to ask their crushes out instead through a hashtag #datechallenge
Ladies ask that guy you fancy out on a date and tweet me a screen shot of his response. ????????

Her followers were up for the challenge
The not-so-surprising result of the dating challenge? Most of the women’s crushes were totally down to go on a date:

Either way, probably the moral of the story is that dating is confusing and whenever we can make it simpler, we should!
