Online dating when to ask her out

Asking someone for a date is much like making any type of assertive request.It involves taking the initiative to let someone know what you are thinking and feeling, asking for what will make you happy, and at the same time taking the feelings of the other person into consideration.

She's waited hopefully that maybe he will ask her, but also thinks that me might be too shy to make the first move.

The best approach for Sarah is to frame the request in a casual manner as part of conversation.

She will feel less anxious that way (there is less risk of "outright" rejection) and the other person can say no without having to feel bad.

Sarah: If the other person is not receptive to your conversation or does not accept your invitation, do not take it personally.

There is nothing to be gained by dwelling on rejection.
