It’s okay to be worried, it means that you truly care and that asking her out is the right thing to do for you at this point! Doing the same old, “Do you want to go out with me?” Is so boring! Step up your game and try out one of these cool, creative and cute ways to ask a girl to be your girlfriend. She’ll be saying yes in no time!
First off we’ll go over the tips you need to turn this into something really special. You’ll want to follow these small guidelines before you go through with any of these awesome ways to ask someone out!
Don’t Try Too Hard: Although you will want to put in your best effort, you don’t want to be over the top. While sometimes those types of things can go smoothly, they also sometimes make your potential girlfriend uncomfortable. Being cheesy might be cute in your head, but when you act it out it’s only going to be a disaster. She may not want to remember something like that for the rest of your relationship.
Take Your Time: Rushing into anything is never a good idea. It allows room for sloppiness and ultimately mistakes that could ruin what you’re trying to do. So take it easy. Try not to blow it by taking things too fast.
Think Of Her: Yes, you probably have some great ideas in your head, but the important thing to ask is: What does she like? This is all about her! You’re trying to make her your girlfriend and you want to appeal to her when you do so. Think about some of her favorite things and combine them with something you enjoy, but don’t let the things you like overpower hers. It will be much more romantic if she feels like you really know her and what she wants.
