How to ask someone on a date.

Got a crush on someone?

Do you day-dreamily scribble his name in your diary with hearts and shooting stars all around it?

Do you blush every time you walk into the local coffee shop, and — gulp! — there she is?

You should probably ask that person on a date. Like, today.

This script will help you … figure out what to say.


Hey [name],

I think you are wonderful and I’d like to take you out on a date.

If you’d like to go out with me, hooray! I will do a happy cartwheel inside my heart.

If you don’t want to go out with me, guess what? Not a problem. I won’t be offended, and I will continue to think that you are amazing.

If you’re on the fence about going out with me, allow me to tempt you with promises of [describe a fun activity] and excellent snacks, such as [describe something delicious] and [one more delicious thing].

Let me know.

[your name here]

My favorite thing about you, right this moment? The fact that you [describe something they do that makes you smile].

Oh, and also your [heart / mind / eyes / soul / whatever you adore about them, most].
