I hope OP took advantage of that time to at least become better friends and sus out why she said no to him. Constructive criticism is always a good thing.

Yeah. That's why you don't ask people out in small spaces that you'll have to be in for a longer amount of time. It would have been awkward even if the lift wasn't stuck.

The worst though is if your roommate is of the opposite sex and you ask them out. Very rarely does it work.

My friend actually tried for a girl that he really likes who is also his roommate. He basically spilled his heart out to her, only to have her shoot him down and profess that she's actually a lot more interested in this guy that he absolutely hates (because the guy is a douchebag). Now he has to deal with the awkwardness of being around her, seeing the guy he hates, and hearing them break the bed at 2am....

I bet the rest of the trip was awkward, hard to have fun when the other person doesn't feel the same. If you're friends with her, you'll probably have another go. Take it slower and it may just fall in place


I would think the girl should feel more awkward. She just broke his heart so now deal with it. Don't worry OP she just got an hour to see how cool you are and see its her loss.

Haha I would be asking the same question.

While I feel bad for the OP (and anyone else stuck on that lift), maybe the best time to ask isn't in the first 75% of the lift. Maybe ask right before you're getting off or better yet after you get off. That way, even if the lift doesn't stop, your not stuck in close proximity for the whole ride up.

There was this girl in high school who I asked out and spilled my heart out. She said no. And for a while i tried impressing her, to make her change her mind. She ended up yelling at me for trying to make her like me and never spoke to me again.

I like the plot twist. The sooner guys realize that girls don't simply exist as romantic interests and start accepting that no almost always means no, the easier all our lives and interactions will be.


Today, I went skiing with a group of friends. While going up on the ski life with one of my guy friends, he asked me out on a date. As I was about to say no, the ski lift broke. We were only halfway up. Lets just say the next hour was strangely awkward. FML
