Many people find the prospect of asking someone out daunting. Actually, asking someone out can be extremely natural and comfortable.
And could of course be the start of something special.
All you have to do is type and hit "Send." The hard part is waiting for her response.
Bearing this in mind, not over thinking it is key when arranging a date.
Keep it simple, for example ‘do you fancy going to this gallery opening on Sunday evening – it starts at 7?
Equally, waiting too long to ask for her number could come across as disinterest.
She may conclude that you just want to be online friends and turn her attention to another online dater.
If you do it straight away, she may think you ask the same of lots of girls on the site.
