When we want to say we don't care about something which may happen in the future. Should we use the simple present tense?
Let's say I am going to ask a girl out for the first time (I never asked her out before). In this situation, is the sentence "I don't care if she says no. I am going to ask her out" correct, or should I say something like "I don't care if she is going to say no" instead of "I don't care if she says no"?
Another example: Let's say I am going to a dangerous place, or I am generally not scared of death. In these contexts, can I say "I don't care if I die", or should I say like "I don't care if I am going to die"?
I think I should use the version with simple present. What do you think?
