Stepping Into Love - Part 3 of 3

Dear Bro Jo,

Well that one didn't work out. So I moved on. Thanks for saying "if he's not smart enough to be interested." I think that gave me the self-esteem to let it go because I'm worth finding another guy.

Anyway, I have a thing for cowboys... ;)

And there's a guy who might be one in my science class. I told him I liked his shirt this morning after class and he kinda blushed and gave me a fist bump before he left.

My question is: I'm a very honest person, and since I'm curious to know if he's a legit cowboy, that's the question that I would ask him next, something like, "Where are you from?"

If he says "Wyoming", for example, I'd ask if he grew up on a ranch.

I have a history of asking straightforward questions and it seems to scare people away. Is there some question that would be more in-tune with feminine wiles that I should ask?

Sorry if this question seems obscure, let me know if I should clarify.

And I'm so grateful your good advice is only an email away.


Dear Cowgirl,

Nope; that question is perfect.

But, you know, I think limiting your dating to only "guys who grew up on a ranch" is a bit too narrow.

Have fun!

- Bro Jo
