Asking for a date over text

opinion

Asking her out via SMS can be tricky — ask too soon and you risk scaring her off. Take too long, she might lose interest and disappear. Chances are she wants to meet you, so a good rule of thumb is to ask her out after each of you have messaged the other 3 or 4 times.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is move the text conversation in the right direction before suggesting meeting up. You may want to comment on something she wrote before going right for it, but here are some examples of what you could send in one of your next text messages:.

If you want to go straight for it without feeling her schedule out first, texts along these lines work well too:. Keep the scheduling messages short and to the point. This is important if you set the date a few days prior.

Send a short reminder about hours before the meeting time. Something like this works great: All is not lost.
