How To Ask A Woman On A Date

Our relationship expert Hillier Marshall advises VideoJug users on the ideal way to ask a woman out on date. Follow this helpful advise to ask a woman on a date anytime, anywhere!

Step 1: The key

The key to successfully asking a woman out on a date is to make yourself interesting and fun to be with. Take the pressure off and forget about the 'dating' aspect, asking a woman out isn't committing to marriage. It's just a way of spending time together and having fun. Think positively. Be open and let your natural charm and personality show through.

Step 2: Prepare

Erase the sentence 'Do you want to go out with me?' from your vocabulary. It's too much of a make or break line. Instead practice saying something far more relaxed such as, "Maybe we could meet for a drink sometime?". It's more grown up, it's casual, and you're not begging her to do you a favour. She gets to express her interest in you without pressure

Step 3: Find the right time

Ideally select a time when you are face to face. This way the conversation will flow naturally and you will be able to read her signals. This will give you clues about how the conversation is going and whether she is into you.

If casually meeting with the object of your affections face to face to difficult to orchestrate, then make a phone call. This is a good option but does mean you can't communicate as freely as you can in person.

Avoid asking someone out by email or text. Not only does it scream chicken but is also impersonal, she won't be able to see what a great guy you are.

Step 4: Get the conversation going

Approach your amore with a smile and a cheerful greeting. If you have only met once or twice before remind her of your name and mention where you met. Make it clear that you are pleased to see her. Start the conversation by talking about that last meeting and use this as a launch pad to move onto other topics. Remember that nothing is so flattering as someone wanting to know all about you, so ask lots of questions and remember to listen to the answers. Be amusing, woman always go for men that make them laugh

Step 5: Body language

A lot of advice on body language is too complex for practical application. All you need to do is remember this- look into her eyes! If she returns your gaze it's going well. If she avoids eye contact she's not that into you.

Other positive signs are: fiddling with her hair, exposing her neck or making physical contact with you.

Step 6: Drop in the line

Once the conversation is flowing hit her with the line. "Maybe we could go for a drink sometime?".

Step 7: If she says Yes

Result. Be ready to back up your line with a suggestion, be it drinks, lunch, or doing an activity together. Keep it casual. If this initial date goes well you can move onto a dinner date or evening out. Seal the deal by confirming a time and exchanging numbers

Step 8: If she say No

No harm done, carry on the conversation. Don't take it personally or bear a grudge, it just wasn't meant to be. You never know, your confidence and attitude may make her regret her decision.

Step 9: If she is non committal

This is an initial rejection but she doesn't want to hurt your feelings. Carry on the conversation and give her your number. If she changes her mind she will know how to reach you.

Step 10: Move on

Whatever the result be proud of yourself. If she said no don't take it too hard, you are probably just not her type. Its always better to give it a shot and be rejected than spend your life thinking 'what if...?'

If she said Yes, excellent. Have a look at VideoJug's http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-prepare-for-a-date to ensure that the next stage goes just as well.
