In other words, don't feel your sentence needs to end with a question mark.Imagine it like this:'Would you like to go out this weekend?
Do you have any advice for asking someone out without looking like a rabbit in the headlights or a complete lunatic (or, worse, both)?
A: The key to asking someone out is to not really ask.
Asking someone what their favorite things are, will give you a lot of information in a short amount of time, and it usually won't feel like you're prying (especially if you are both answering the questions). Before you launch into questions that could potentially have embarrassing answers, gauge how the other person is feeling.
Are they the type of person who's likely to be an open book with their answers and willing to laugh them off with you, or are they more guarded and probably worried about sharing too much?
The other (the first one) puts them in a spot where they really have to think about whether they're interested.
Q: I have a bit of a 'problem' with forcing issues when it comes to dating.
Questions like these - as well as a couple of serious ones - are good to have in mind on dates because they keep the conversation lighthearted, keep it moving, and most importantly, they keep it fun.
Phoebe gives Monica and Chandler a Ms Pac-Man machine, then hogs it.
If you're relaxed together, feel free to ask these questions and share a few good laughs.
You should be willing to answer questions too, just to keep things fair.
A: It sounds like it's easier for you to just confirm someone likes you than to let things progress naturally.
