Unique Ways to Ask Someone Out on a Date
Dating Expert Shares Some Fun Ways to Make a Move

Asking someone to go out on a date is easier said than done. When nervous symptoms such as sweaty palms, a knot in the throat, and butterflies in the stomach accompany an awkward “Will you go out with me?” stutter, things can get ugly. While it’s never a comfortable situation, XXXXXX, Director of XXXXXXX, a dating service for busy business professionals has some ideas for fun ways to make taking the first step a little easier.

Puzzle him/her with Your Charm: Want to really make someone swoon? Even if you’re too shy to ask someone out in person, you can still get crafty and turn the question into a game. Write your sweet proposition on paper, and then cut up the sentence into different pieces and place all the letters into an envelope. On the outside of the envelope, tell him or her to “Piece this together for a surprise” and let your crush do the work.

The Modern Message in a Bottle: A phone call may be the easiest way to contact someone for a date, but is certainly not the most creative. Be original when making that initial contact like in the movie Hitch, messenger her a walkie-talkie and have you waiting on the other end. Or if you or a friend is a lawyer, write up a fake subpoena to invite your crush on a date. Name the “case” something like Amber & Chris vs. the Thought of Foregoing a Great Time Together and indicated the day of the date as the court number. Acting as though she must appear on the date or be in contempt of court adds a playful start to the date.

Rush Hour Rendezvous: Driving in traffic can have its frustrations but instead of blowing your horn in road rage, scope out the road as a dating opportunity. If a fellow driver catches your eye and engages in some bumper to bumper flirting, you can casually hand over your business card. This proactive move will show you are interested and you might just get the green light for follow-up.

Roses Never Go Out of Style: It’s traditional. It’s cliché. And there’s a reason it has been around for decades, it works! Sending roses to a girl is a chivalrous gesture she is sure to appreciate. Accompany the bouquet with a simple note requesting a date or, for a modern twist, write a funny but silly poem. It is a sure-fire way she will get the hint that you would like to spend some time together.

Please contact me to schedule a segment or interview with XXXXX to share these and other unique ways to ask someone out on a date.

Thanks,
XXXXX

  2. Uh, no.

    Cutting up your invitation into puzzle pieces is puerile. The modern “message in a bottle” suggestions sound like dating versions of “how to spice up your marital love life.” If you need “spice” asking someone out on a first date, you’ve got a problem. If someone messengered me a walky talky, I’d…. never mind. The “hand that hot thing in the next car your business card from the car window” is a little too close to somebody’s Penthouse fantasy for comfort. And finally, flowers (especially roses!) too early are pushy, and bound to make her (or me, anyway) uncomfortable. You’re trying too hard!

    Maybe I’m just old and cranky. But do they REALLY think these are good ideas?

  3. They are creative ideas but more for someone who is dating seriously or married. that would be cute. this would be a little creepy. and hitch was a movie. not real so I don’t think his tactics would work.

  4. So, BG, you didn’t comment …because you were speechless? ;) All I can think of to say is W O W.

    Comment by Stephanie — October 28, 2010 @ 1:47 pm

  5. @Stephanie: SPEECHLESS. It doesn’t happen a lot.

    Comment by BG — October 28, 2010 @ 2:01 pm

  6. This is the stupidest thing I have read this week. Surely even the authors of this articles knew these ideas are stupid, even the roses (to ASK for the date?!? Desperate.)

  7. It’s hard to find knowledgeable people in this particular topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks

  8. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  9. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you ought to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo
    subject but generally people don’t speak about such subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  14. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate
    it.
