Thinking about asking out your crush? You may want to brush up on your strategy. Just use these cute ways to ask a girl out to have her head over heels.
Asking a girl out is one of the most daunting challenges to a guy’s dating life. First, the burden of making the first move will always be in a man’s purview. Second is the competition. While girls might be able to pick and choose more easily from a horde of fawning admirers, men typically have to deal with the task of finding cute ways to ask a girl out and get her to say yes.
While not all men can be as smooth and dashing as Will Smith in Hitch, one thing they do have in common is the fact that they want their crush to say “yes” when invited on a date. There are many moves and styles that you can use, but most of these have become old and tired. The thing is, if guys really want their crush to go out with them, the only way is to up the ante and come up with cute ways to ask a girl out.
Some quick advice
#1 Keep it simple, yet creative. Coming up with something overly elaborate and expensive doesn’t always mean success. If you overdo it, chances are that your crush might get weirded out. Come up with something you yourself created and don’t rely too much on spending money to ask her out. [Read: Hilariously unique ways to ask someone on a date]
#2 Know your crush. Research will always pay off. A quick peek at her social media will give you tons of ideas about what she likes, where she hangs out, what activities she likes doing. Subtly fishing information from common friends and acquaintances helps, too. Just don’t be a stalker.
#3 Know what you can do. Are you the creative type? Musically talented? The tech-savvy geek? Or are you the witty comedian? This is the part where you put your cards on the table. Use your best talent to come up with something to make her giddy and say yes. [Read: 10 awesome songs to dedicate to someone special]
#4 Pay attention to timing. Timing is everything. Even if your crush secretly likes you back and is aching for you to ask her out, it could spell rejection if your timing is off. Always get a feel for her disposition, and choose an appropriate time to ask her out. Make sure you ask her out when you see that she’s in a good mood or if you feel that her schedule is free.
#5 Finally, it’s just a date! You’re not asking for her hand in marriage. Sometimes, attraction to your crush makes you overanalyze things and leaves you having second thoughts and missing a good moment. Keep in mind that you’re inviting her out to spend some time to get to know her better and have a good time, so hold off on those other moves for later *if things go well*.
