    10 Cute Ways To Ask A Guy Out

    By on January 8, 2014

    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!

        There is no reason for people to judge this relationship. The two of you are the same age. Speak with your friend about her thoughts and feelings. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Ev!

        You may want to rethink liking him. Friends and family are often better judges of character than the people involved, so you should really ask your friends why they don’t like them and listen to them. It might be nothing, but you should really listen to what they say. If they think that something is off or wrong about him, then you may want to just take their advice.

      Hi um well I kinda like this guy his name is kaleb Baldwin and I’ve caught staring at me but I’m really unsure if he likes me or not. What are some obvious signs I should know before I find the courage to ask him?

        If he smiles at you or looks at you often, then he may be interested in speaking with you. You may want to try to start with basic conversation to try to better understand his feelings. If you think that he wants to speak with you more often, then try to spend more time with him. Speak directly and honestly with him about your feelings when you feel more comfortable with him. Best of luck, Aubrey!

        You should take this time to look inward and determine what you want. If you want to chase someone who does not like you, then do so. If you want to save yourself the emotional stress, then allow him to fade. There are many people in this world with many positive qualities. That said, it is certain possible to change his mind about you with the proper application of actions. Best of luck, Sequoia!

        If the two of you have been on a date already, then it is almost certain that he has feelings for you. Spend some more time with him and share your thoughts. It is proximity and conversation that may help him develop stronger feelings for you. Remain positive and try to go out with him somewhere exciting. Enjoy!

        If you want to develop a relationship with this person but you are uncertain as to his feelings toward you, then speak with him directly and honestly about your feelings. If you are not comfortable doing that, then perhaps speak with a friend who can speak to him for you. Otherwise, allow your professional career to remain that way and find love outside of work. However, he may be shy and waiting for you to make the first move. Look inward and determine your course of action, Ruhi!

        If you want to continue your relationship with him, then there is no reason for you to not do so. Dating someone over the internet has its risks, but as long as you are mindful and smart you will be safe. It would be wise of you to speak with your family about this relationship that you are seeking. If you find that you want to develop a relationship with someone who you physically see, then it may be mindful to follow that path. Enjoy life and experience what you can, Megan!

        If he hangs out with you, then it is likely that he views you in a positive way. Spend time with him in gym class and compete with him if you have the opportunity. Speak with him directly and honestly about your feelings and you are likely to receive a positive response. If nothing else, spend more time with him during lunch and you will see your relationship naturally grow. Thank you for your comment, Jocelyn!

      Hey, so I been talking to this guys for over a month now. We really like each other but I guess he is too shy to ask me out. So I want to ask him out I want it to be special but I can’t really think of anything

        For someone who is shy, your best option is to be direct with them. If you want something exciting and special, then bring him to a park and ask him out in the midst of nature. Romance and seclusion are bound to bring about a healthy relationship.

      There is this guy in my algebra 1b class, he is super outgoing and he talks to me occasionally. He acts like he likes me, but he hasn’t asked me out. I want to ask him out, but I don’t know how.

        Just do it! If he seems like he likes you, he probably does. He may just be nervous about asking you out, so you may have to just make the first move. Even if he turns you down, at least you will be able to know for sure that nothing is possible instead of remaining in this state of uncertainty. And, if he does like you, you could end up with your dream guy before long! Good luck, Sadie!

        Just ask him out! You could try writing him a note or sending him a text message to ask him out if asking him in person is too scary. You already know that he likes you, so there really isn’t any risk. Since you guys are both shy, you may want to arrange a date to a place like a movie where you will not have to carry on a conversation too much, and you will be able to talk about the movie afterward. Good luck!

      I like this guy at my school. He’s new (he came right before winter break). I catch him staring at me in class, like ALL the time, and we talk sometimes about tv shows and stuff, but the thing is that he’s really shy.

      I don’t know what to do! Please help!

        Considering he is shy, his behavior certainly makes it seem like he likes you. He is probably too shy to do anything beyond making eye contact and checking you out all the time. If you like him, you may have to make the first move. It sounds like he does like you though, so there is an excellent chance that he will end up saying yes if you ask him to hag out. Good luck! 🙂

      I found it a bit disappointing really though. And they have this new guy work at the crush’s place. He’s really really handsome and sometimes (I mean all of the times) I caught him staring atat me! His reaction is so funny everyone I caught him looking at me ?. I don’t really like this 2nd guy as much as I like the 1st guy. And for god sake I want to makemake changes, and I really want to try to get the 2nd guy phone number. Well, I want to be friends, please give me some opinions!!!

        Whoever it is that you like, talk to them and ask for their number. There is no reason the lady can’t make the first move, and it would end your weeks of uncertainty about how he/they feel. Choose who you like the most, add them online, talk to them in person and get their number. You will be able to tell as you get to know the person better if he likes you back or not. Best of luck!

      God.. Thanks a lot lot lot! Okay so lemme summarize this a bit. I have a crush on this guy about two months ago. And apparently he doesn’t have me any signs at all! I’ve been trying to think positively. But lately he kinda… Talked and laughing with his guy friend and smiling when he walk off my office room. I have a confusing thoughts! I don’t know if he’s smiling to me or feeling funny with their conversation so

        It is possible that he likes you, but he is not showing enough signs yet. Perhaps, you could try to talk to him more often when he is nearby. It will give you a chance to get to know him better, and you will be able to gauge his reactions to see if he is showing any signs of being interested. In addition, you may want to check out the Her Interest article called “How to Tell If a Guy Likes You”. It runs through the many signs that a guy is interested and how to tell, so it could help you out. Good luck, Belle!
