Question: How do I ask a girl out?
Hello, friends! Elf Ed Zachary here, at your service. I'm not as warm and fuzzy as Elf Ernest, but I'll try my best to answer your questions.
Here's a question submitted yesterday by Ashton H, age 11. He wants to know:
How do you ask a girl out?
Ashton, you're 11. Why do you want to ask a girl out?
That's like asking "how do you drive a car?". It is a good question and someday you're going to need to know it. But now is not the time.
So here's my advice, from a happily married elf who didn't muster up the courage to ask a girl out until I was 93.
If there is a girl you really like just be yourself. Be involved in group activities with her. Offer to help where you can. Be a good friend.
Pretty simple, eh?
And don't be in a hurry to grow up. That's something we elves have mastered.
