All too often, as women, we wait for a man to show interest in us instead of grabbing hold the reigns of relationships and shooting the shot ourselves. If you haven’t ran across the trending hashtag #ShootYourShot2017, we’re going to talk all about it. The concept behind the hashtag is empowering people to feel more confident approaching people that they like via social media. Naturally, for most, the initial steps of shooting your shot will go down in the DM’s (direct messages). With that being said, there are not many women who feel empowered enough to go after the men that they are interested in. Men are stupid. They need our direction. If you know what you want, you don’t need to wait on him to ask you directions in order to lead him where you want him to be. When you shoot your shot, the ball is in your court. That is the best part.
Now, I know what you may be thinking… “are you crazy?!” “I’m not about to slide into any man’s inbox.” “What kind of woman would he think I was if I did that?” You know what kind of woman you would be to shoot your shot? The woman who is claiming her destiny. The woman who is in charge of her life. The woman who is confident. The woman who doesn’t let fear hold her back.
There are still men out there who are completely flattered by a woman who is confident enough to approach him and openly show interest in him. It’s sexy and refreshing. Besides, it’s 2017 ladies and in the times we are in, there is no time to waste. You could miss out on your soulmate because you weren’t empowered enough to approach him. We have no idea how much more time we’ve got left. Make every day and every decision count. No ‘what if’s?’ allowed. So here’s to shooting our shot from here on out, ladies. Let’s get into it!
