How to Ask Someone on a Date
« on: May 16, 2009, 12:33:27 AM »

Whether the other person is interested or not, you'll never know unless you ask. So gather up all your courage and follow these steps.

Step 1. Introduce yourself to that person you've been admiring from afar.

Step 2. Get the person's telephone number, or tell a common friend you would like the number.

Step 3. Call. Choose a time that is not intrusive. Call when you are comfortable doing so, regardless of what your friends might say about the right time to call.

Step 4. Reintroduce yourself once you're on the phone by saying something like, "Hey, it's Shirley. We met at the drag strip."

Step 5. Using as little pretense as possible (ideally none), ask the person if he or she would like to get together for a cup of coffee or do something similarly casual. If you are politely refused, take the hint and get off the phone.

Step 6. Meet casually for a brief time - half an hour or so. If that goes well, suggest a more formal date, such as lunch.

Step 7. Go on the more formal date.
