Host Thoughts on the Art of Asking Someone Out

There is a lot to consider when asking someone out on a dating app. How long have you been chatting back and forth? What does your schedule look like? Are you being too pushy with your approach?

Overall, my advice is to wait until you’ve had a fun/meaningful conversation on the app. Once you feel like the vibe is good, then ask the other person what their week looks like or a specific date they might be free. Don’t be pushy and don’t be update if they say no. Shoot your shot and give it a chance though! 

It’s important not to jump into going out when you match online – make sure your personalities match and someone’s going to be worth your time before you waste everyone’s time. At the same time, don’t take too long, or you run the risk of fading into the single person ether.  In person, make sure you talk to someone and establish a connection before you ask for a number – doing anything otherwise demonstrates a shallowness that’s going to be unbecoming to everyone.
