So what should I say?
Tell the truth!
Say, "Hi Julie, I was wondering if you'd be interested in going out this Saturday? I know a great sushi place."
Just like that? Don't you think I'll scare her?
Both you and Julie are what, you are both adults, and that's the way adults communicate with each other.
If you're worried about being too direct, you could make it a group event and invite her along.
The whole process just seems so scary.
You know what's really scary?
The idea that two people might be perfect for each other, but they're too afraid to talk to each other...
Now that's a frightening thought. What a waste!
That's a good point.
What's the worst thing that could happen?
She rejects me.
And is that so bad?
No, I guess not. How do you meet your wife anyway?
I walked up to her on a subway car and said, "Hi, I'm King. What's your name?"
Three years later we were married.
Wow! All right... I'm going to do it. I'm going to ask her out.
Well, here's your chance. She's started walking this way. Go for it!
Hi Dan. How are you doing?
I'm good, thanks!
Say, a couple of us are thinking about having dinner and maybe going to a Karaoke bar this Saturday night.
Are you free to join us?
Sure! I'd love to. What time should I meet you?
How about 7:30?
Great! I'll see you then. Have a nice day, Dan! Bye!
You too! See you on Saturday!
See? That wasn't so hard, was it?
That was amazing! I'm totally on cloud nine right now! Thanks, dude!
No problem, and I hope it works out for the two of you.
It's really true: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!"
You got it!
