This doodle applies to hanging out.
I always feel like I need to ask other people to hang out, because they'll never ask me to hang out. I'd rather just do it then to wait for them to come around and build up their nerves. This also applies to conversations. I usually start them. I start just about everything except for intimate affairs. THAT I cannot seem to start. That may be changing, however.
And sure, I may be scared that they're going to shoot me down....
But at least I can say that I tried.
