5 reasons why you shouldn't shoot your shot at a guy you're crushing on

It's OK for babes to shoot shots, but not when the timing is wrong.

Woman with a big crush

We’re here for women confident enough to shoot their shots and go after men they have the hots for! So, if you are a woman who shoots her shot, we support you. And if you are one who is yet to begin, you really should think about joining quickly, because, hey, you only live once.

However, whether or not you have begun to flex your shot-taking muscles, there are times you should lay low. Below we list five times you should not shoot your shot with a guy:

1. Your girl is interested

You cannot do your girl dirty like that. If she has already told you that she has hots for a guy, it is only fair that you back off and let her have him.

Actually you can have him because she's not technically dating him just yet, but hey, she’s your friend. What would it cost to let her have that one?

2. He has someone

Do not be the reason why another person loses their loved one. Learn to respect other people and what they have.

3. You already have a boyfriend

If you already have a partner, you might also want to stay away from the game. It is called respect for one’s partner, and faithfulness to them.

4. When you just got out of a relationship

A bad breakup will have you not thinking straight. And most rebound relationships are reflections of that.

When people get out of bad relationships and feel the need to prove to their ex-partner that they can do just great without them, they get into other relationships too quickly. Such decisions often prove ill-advised in the long run.

If you are just getting out of a bad relationship that has you messed up mentally, it is better to stay off the shot-shooting game till when you are sure your decision to date is not fueled by a need to prove anything to anyone.

5. When you’re horny

Well, simply people make bad decisions when they are down bad [ and then blame it on the hormones/wine later. LMAO].

But hey, if bad decisions are exactly what you're gunning for, then take that shot boo.
