Hey, it’s me. I know. You probably don’t remember, but we’ve met before. We had coffee one time and you told me about your work and that was nice. Anyway, I’m writing to see if you want to go on a date with me? Yes or no? Maybe? I mean, the answer is yes, but if you want to think about it first then that’s fine too.
How do you ask someone out?
You should ask the person out in person. This is the best way to do it because it’s less likely you’ll be rejected. If you are rejected, then at least they have heard your voice and know that you exist.
If you must ask them out over text or email, then make sure that you’ve known each other for a long time (at least two weeks) before doing so. It shows more commitment than asking someone on a whim, which can be awkward if they don’t know who you are by then.
You could also try asking them via social media first—this makes it easier for both parties involved because there isn’t any direct eye contact involved in the conversation (and therefore less pressure). However, this method won’t work if one of the parties doesn’t have access to social media accounts like Facebook or Twitter; therefore only consider doing this if both parties have these accounts available!
How do you ask someone out on a date?
There are many ways to ask someone out on a date, but here is the most popular one:
- Ask them if they want to go out for coffee or a drink.
- Make sure you know their name! You don’t want to ask the wrong person out.
- If they say yes, then you’re ready for your first official date! You can even go on a movie date if you want (just make sure it’s not an action movie).
How do I ask someone out over text?
Asking someone out over text can be tricky. It’s easy to get caught up in all the different feelings and responses that texts can evoke, so it’s useful to know how to ask someone out over text without getting too flirty or formal. While there are no hard-and-fast rules for making this happen, here are some general guidelines:
- Be specific about when and where you want to meet (this is one of those rare times when “somewhere” isn’t going to cut it). If they say yes and then flake, they’ll feel bad because they’ve already committed themselves.
- Don’t ask too many questions—unless you’re dating a journalist or something else where asking questions is part of your job description. Otherwise, people will think you’re weird and/or desperate; even if they do like talking with you via phone/Skype/FaceTime/etc., they might not want the hassle of having their time wasted by having multiple conversations with somebody who’s just going through the motions in order for them not only answer “yes” but also act on said answer immediately upon receiving confirmation from me later today…”
What do you say to ask someone out?
When you’re ready to ask someone out, focus on being clear about what you want and why. You should be clear about what activity you would like to do with the person, when and where (or if), how long it will take, and if there are any costs involved. In your invitation text, consider including a way for them to say no or “no thanks” in case they aren’t interested.
Here’s an example: “Want to go hiking with me on Saturday? We could meet at the trailhead at 8am.”
