How To Ask Someone Out

Aug 27, 2008
If you are interested in dating someone you may know it, but you may not know how to ask them. Asking someone on a date does not need to be a big deal, in fact the more relaxed you are about it the better.

You need to consider when asking someone out that the worst thing they could say is no, and if they say no you are no worse off than you are right now. When you look at it this way you take a lot of the pressure off of yourself and the situation and asking someone out on a date becomes a lot easier.

When you like someone you should simply let them know it. You do not have to make it a big deal and you do not need to go too far out of your way. All you need to do when you are interested in taking someone out is ask them, "Would you like to have dinner sometime?" Or, you could even ask, "Would you like to go for coffee, just you and I, sometime?" When you do this you are making it very casual so the person knows you are interested but you are asking an open ended question so that they can get out of it if they want to. If they say yes, follow the question up by another such as, "How does Friday night sound?", or something to that effect.

If you aren't comfortable asking face to face, no need to worry. Luckily, with the technological work that we live in today there are many options. You could send a text message or even an email asking the person if they would like to go out sometime. If you want to be more pointed you can ask, "Would you like to go out for dinner on Friday night?" When you ask a more pointed question you may see more hesitation, but don't take this personally. When you ask a question such as this the hesitation may be the person simply reviewing their mental calendar.

Asking someone out doesn't need to be difficult. In fact, most of the time we worry about it far more than we need to. When you just get up the nerve and do it, you'll feel better to have said the words and also because you will know for certain if the person feels the same way about you as you do them.

Just find the right opportunity, take a relaxed approach to the situation, and ask the person out. You may find that the person that you are interested in was just waiting for you to ask them out so they could get to know you better! What are you waiting for?
