Asking a woman out isn’t easy—especially online. It’s a moment where you have to be vulnerable, knowing the answer could be “no,” and so many men (understandably) fear rejection. Even digitally, the chance of being turned down exists.
As a digital dating coach, I find that many men either skip the chit chat with a match and ask her out right away to get it over with, or continue the conversation for too long because they’re not sure how to find the moment online. Either way, you risk losing her interest.
Here’s the deal: Asking her out online isn’t just about knowing what question to ask or when to ask it. It's about developing a digital dynamic so she says “yes” when you ask her out. Follow these steps to connect with her in a way that makes asking her out simple and her answer (yes!) a no-brainer.
