Long gone are the days of us women waiting around for guys to ask us out. It’s the 21st century which means, girls, that we’re allowed to take control. Asking your crush out isn’t as scary as you may think either. No doubt you’re panicking and making a massive deal of it in your head but you shouldn’t be. Just relax. It’s easy – he won’t bite.
On that note, I think it’s time we get creative too. It’s time we think outside the box and ask him out in a cute, memorable and sometimes even cheesy way. You want your proposal to stand out to him, it needs to be unforgettable so that you will be too.
Here’s 10 cute ways to ask a guy out…
Send Him A Note
Simple but effective. When he leaves his desk/work area simply walk on by and leave a note asking him out. Be sure to give him a flirty smile as he passes you to go back to his desk too. Just make sure your note can’t be mistaken as trash!
Send Him An Email
We really are in the new age now. How about asking him out by email? There’s no risk of it getting lost and it saves you having to see him and get embarrassed. Perhaps suggest a date on it and send him your number.
Ask Him If He Has A Girlfriend
Once you’re in conversation with him, simply ask him if he has a girlfriend. Once he says no (hopefully!) you can steer the conversation your way and it should end with the pair of you arranging a date.
Give Him Your Number In Style
Giving him your number can be simple or it can be memorable. If he’s a sports fan, write your name and number on a baseball or basketball and give it to him. If he reads, slip it into whatever he’s reading currently. You get the idea!
Plan A Treasure Hunt
Why not draw him a map to follow and tell him he has to find the hidden treasure by a certain time. Ideally the hidden treasure will be you sitting in a restaurant or somewhere similar.
Send Him Love Hearts
Ah Love Hearts, those classic little sweets! Begin eating a pack in front of him and then purposely offer him one that says ‘Be Mine’. Perhaps follow it up with a complimenting one. He’ll soon get the idea.
Give Him A Present
Again, if he’s away from his desk or workspace sneak up and leave something on his desk. This time you could leave a small box and inside it could be your note and perhaps information on a restaurant reservation or tickets to the big game.
Shock Him With A Parking Ticket
If he’s got a sense of humor (and a car!) this one will be great. Write out your note in the style and shape of a parking ticket and leave it on his windshield. If things work out, both of you will be telling people about it for years to come.
Put A Message In A Bottle
How cute is this idea? You do require some props but not many and they’ll be easy to find. Get an empty bottle (preferably glass) and fill it with a bit of sand an slip your note inside before sticking a cork in the top to seal it. You can then leave your bottle anywhere for your crush to find. It doesn’t matter if it’s his desk, his car, his doorstep or anywhere else, just so long as he finds it.
Just Ask Him!
If all else fails, just ask him! This may not be the cutest idea or the most creative but it’s certainly been proven effective time and time again. Gather your courage, compose yourself and simply walk up to him. You can either start a regular conversation first or you can jump in at the deep end and ask him. It doesn’t matter, just so long as you ask. It’s best if you have a clear idea of where you’d like to go on a date first, this way you’re less likely to get flustered and mess up your words. He’ll love that you had the courage to ask him outright and he’ll probably find your blush when you do cute too.
So there you have it, ladies, 10 fun and cute ways to ask a guy out. They’re all memorable, creative and if all goes well they’ll get the job done. Just remember, the worst that can happen is he can say no so there’s nothing to worry about. You can do this, just be brave and be creative.
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these before or if you do, I’d love to hear from you!
