Is it better to ask someone outdate, together,etc.)
On the internet by typing??
Granted, I'm not exactly the facebook generation, so while the interwebs could very well be a perfectly acceptable way to ask someone out, I'm going to go with in person.
It's easy to type to someone that you want to go out on a date with them. But doing it in person requires confidence. And bitches dig confidence.
In person ofcourse. But, if you're one of the nervous types that doesn't really want to, just do it online.
Written word (typing) hides all the stuttering and the sputtering and the hesitation and the blushing and the fiddling and twiddling and the feeling that you're naked and everyone's looking at you. So I'd say internet.
In person unless you're already really good friends acquaintances with them.
Of course, what I said was assuming you already know that person.
Then again, the other person will know this as well. It cheapens your words. Especially with women, who are quite big on body language.
Only if the other person is already negatively biased towards you.
Picking people up is like selling a product: yourself. The sales guy who has a face-to-face conversation with you is much more likely to close the deal than the guy who "texts" you.
People have more confidence typing it, though it's more polite to ask in person.
I understand that they have more confidence typing, but what is their long-term plan? To never be in the same room with the person they are dating?
Eventually they need to be physically present and carry on a conversation. Get your practice in now.
Definitely in person. Just be natural about it.
Asking on the phone can be a good balance between in person, and online.
My ex asked me out online.
It wasn't that awkward when we saw each other the next day but we was already 'dating' before that so...
I would say online is better than having the experience Veho described :3
Talking to someone in person is much easier once the huge obstacle of asking them out has been overcome. I wasn't talking about building a whole relationship online, only about asking someone out on a (real) date. The date itself would be physical. That's the whole point. That's what OP was talking about.
But that's the adorable stuff...
Adorable... or laughable? It's pretty tough to strike a cool pose while you're being shy, stuttering, blushing, etc.
If some chick asked me out and she was being like that, I'd melt.
Never happened to me, that's for sure.
In person since it sends a message if you do it online.
Unless you dont know that person in person in which that is the only case I would find that acceptable.
