Valentine’s Day is around the corner, which means it’s time to start solidifying your plans unless you want to spend the night alone. Women are usually taught to wait for the man to make the first move, but fuck it — it’s 2018, ladies. It’s time to shoot your shot.

Blogger Oloni knows what’s up. She tweeted at her female followers to ask their crushes out on a date on February 14th and to post the receipts.

And guess what? For a lot of ladies, it actually worked out pretty well.

Honestly some of the responses were so cute I just wanted to melt.

Others, well… at least you tried?

Still, if you never ask, you’ll never know. Shoot your shot, ladies — you never know what might come from it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
