Walking up to a girl and saying " You're pretty, we should go out" seems kinda shallow to me. I've tried it but it never works. When I get to know a girl, we usually get along really well and I make a healthy amount of female friends but whenever I ask a girl out I just get wide array of excuses, I've actually gotten the washing the hair excuse, or straight refusals. I don't usually ask my good female friends out(I can only think of one that I asked) but I do occasionally ask the ones that I'm just getting to know. When I was younger I always had a habit of just running into girls who were in a relationship. We would remain friends so it never caused any issues. Lately, though they just aren't interested. I'd ask my female friends but I think I'd get a more honest answer from a neutral party. Any help would be appreciated.
I know there are a bunch of topics about this issue but I've been getting chewed out for bringing up old topics lately and this thread still seems to be fresh. The dating-age seems a bit too focused on "scoring" and I don't like weeding through a bunch of "clever" responses.
Okay, this is the last "guys ask girls for advice about girls" thing I will answer.
YOU CANNOT AVOID IT. IT JUST HAPPENS.
Maybe you are just not date material to most girls. Maybe they see you just as too friendly instead of sexy and mysterious. Maybe all the girls you want to date are the girls that don't want to date you. :l Really can't say unless I knew more about you, but I think my answers are the most plausible. Sounds like you just put yourself into a tough situation. Maybe you should just ask your female friends to set up dates for you or introduce you to their single friends.
AND NOW MY BOYCOTT ON GIVING ADVICE BEGINS!!!

Oh, I played with PLENTY of boys' toys! Maybe because they were bought for my brother, but whatever. We shared them. They were practically mine since I was older. Haha!
I had a bunch of Hot Wheels and army truck stuff. Those were the best for when dolls went to war with each other! And some transformers stuff and other things like megablocks and lego and jenga in order to build fortresses.
I too HATED baby dolls and bottles and stuff. They ended being the evil whiny enemy masterminds! I never found any of them cute. They all looked so CREEPY with their rolling eyes and pouty faces and needed to be destroyed. >__> (but I love babies. I just hate baby dolls. lol)
