Asking a girl out on a date and being successful may depend more upon you than the girl. First decide what type of girl you are interested in. It is good to ask people that you know, that have shown some interest in you and who have similar interests as you. Once you choose to ask a girl out, it is a good idea to know a little about her. Get some background information about her from friends. Asking can be done by using a creative approach (flowers, a poem, a small note or phone call), but once you have chosen a method, just do it. In some situations you might be rejected, but keep trying. Consider that 85 percent of all people who ask girls out on a date already know enough about the girl that they feel comfortable that the girl will go out with them.
