Let Howcast be your dating coach with this video series on how to ask out someone.
You Will Need
- A little courage
- Some self-assurance
- Your best set of clothes
Decide beforehand where you want to take her, if you’re lucky enough to get the date. To a fancy restaurant? A movie? Something more original? If possible, choose something that appeals to her interests.
Look your best
Look your best. You don’t have to be Brad Pitt to get a date, but it will help if you’re well groomed.
Pick your moment
Pick your moment. Asking a girl for a date when she’s rushed or with other people may torpedo your chances. Wait until it’s just you two and you’re not likely to be interrupted.
Be yourself. A sincere geek comes across far better than a guy doing a poor imitation of James Bond.
When it’s time to make your move, begin by paying her a compliment. She’ll feel good about herself and look kindly on you. But be sincere—no one likes to be patronized.
Ask her out
Take the plunge and ask her out. Nervous? Remind yourself that she can only say 'yes' or 'no.'
If she says no
If she says no, don’t take it personally. You’re not attracted to everyone either, right? Plus, her rejection may have nothing to do with you.
If she says yes
If she says yes, set a date and time immediately. Now go home and get ready for your date. And whatever you do, don’t be late!
