A while back, I asked several woman what their partner (boyfriend, fiance, husband) did well in asking them out. Today is part 2 of their responses. See part 1 here. (Reminder: These aren’t my thought – gathered from different women!)
- He was very clear when he asked to pursue me that his goal was marriage – that he was not a casual dater. This told me that he’d been studying me for a while and knows I’m a possible match for him.
- He asked me if it was okay to give me a hug at the end of our first date. He didn’t pout when I said no, but asked if he should ask again later or if I wanted to tell him when I was ready.
- The men who have asked me out well, established some sort of communication first besides 5 minutes in passing. We had some sort of conversation where we had gotten to know each other before they had asked me for a date. The key with these conversations is approaching them as friendly and casual as possible, allowing her to get to know your interests. You may have been observing her for a while, she may have been observing you, or she may not have. If her eyes are focused on Christ, then it is possible that she hasn’t recognized that you were observing her. Each man asked for my phone number and called me earlier in the week to secure a date for the weekend. Don’t call me on Thursday to ask for a date for Friday or Saturday.
