It doesn’t matter how young or old you may be – asking someone out on a date can be an almost terrifying experience if you don’t actually know how to do it. And yet, this is not new to anyone – and we’ve all been there at least once in our lives.
How do you actually ask someone out on a date in a way that maximizes the possibility of a positive response? Here are some of the essential tips to keep in mind:
Keep in mind that this does not define who you are as a person. Regardless of the response, you are not less worthy in any way. Be self-confident and emanate this – there’s no way you will ever be refused!
Furthermore, we advise you to be as specific as possible. In general, people are more willing to say “yes” if the details are specific. So, instead of simply asking someone out for a “general dinner”, why not ask them out to a specific restaurant, at a specific time in the day?
Don’t feel pressured. There’s nothing to lose and this is not a sales call where you have to close the deal at the end. Be you, smile, be relaxed and laid-back. Yes, it can be difficult to “hide” all the nervousness – but trust us when we say the effort will be more than worth it.
Last, but definitely not least, be flexible too. We all have extremely busy schedules, so be prepared with a plan “B”, in case the other person cannot make it to “plan A”.
