So you see someone at the gym who you like the look of, you may even share a smile, a hello or whatever, but you have no freaking clue how to ask them out. Hey I am with you it can be really tough asking someone out on a date no matter if they are a guy or a girl. But hopefully if you take a look at our tips below you will have a better idea of how to ask that special someone out!
Do It In The Right Place
Do not confront the person you want to ask out. Instead make sure you are walking with them or you have walked into them in a casual setting. Like say walking to the parking lot for example. You do not want to do this is a crowded place or right after they have finished work and they may be stressed out.
Have A Place In Mind
The worst thing you can do is build up the courage to ask a person out and for them to say yes and then say so where do you wanna go?. Imagine the horrible silence, the strained look on your face as you desperately try to come up with a place you two could go! Do not let this happen, it makes the situation awkward as heck. Instead before you pounce have a few ides of where you could ask them to go. Hey there is a new movie out on Friday that looks cool, have you eating at that new place down town? Are just a couple of low key and low stress places you can suggest to go. If you know a little about the person like what kind of music or movies they like try and suggest something that you know they will like.
Have An Escape Route!
Now the best way to go into asking someone out is by feeling confident and sure that they will say yes. but there of course is still a chance that they will say no. They might have a significant other or maybe they are just not interested, but there is a chance they can say no. What do you do then? Create a distraction by starting a fire? Jump out the nearest window? Nope there is no need to end your life or commit a felony. Try to play it as cool as possible and make an excuse to get the heck out of there in a cool and calm manner. Makes: Ok no worries, well I have to go meet a friend, maybe next time? Smile and walk away. It makes the whole thing sound casual and while you may be dying inside, they will have no clue! Make sure you have an escape story planned. Now do not make it over the top involving terrorists or saving a baby or anything like that!
What If They Say Yes?
It can be actually quite terrifying when they actually say yes. What do you do then? Start skipping down the street? Start shouting woo-hoo? No this will only freak them out! Just smile and say that sounds great, make the plans and walk away, but be sure you let them know you are really excited and looking forward to the date.
