Ha ha.

My thoughts exactly towards the event.

Thanks (how many times have I said that?) for helping me, the nerd.

Just be yourself. I know that's kind of hard when you like someone and want to make a good impression (I've been there), but being honest and being yourself is the best way to go. If she can't appreciate you at face value, then f**k her. …Or just do that anyway. ;)

Good luck! And if it doesn't work out, don't sweat it. There's lots of fish in the sea, and there's a person out there for everyone! :)

You need a fur coat, and some gold rings, and some chains, and a cane, some gold teeth, a hat with a feather in it, and a shit-kicking grin, then no woman could turn you down. Not even Brittany Murphy. Oh… Too soon?
Cease this, honkus!

What everyone else said. Especially that part about Hadouken.

Also remember that the easiest way to be calm and at your best at doing just about anything is to have experience at it. It's pretty natural to be nervous about something you don't do often. And the funny part is the only way to get experience at it is to give it a shot. There's no magic +5 sword, so the only thing to do is get out there and grind until you level…

Ahem.

I'll put my hat in with the group that says ask her to a specific event. It makes the entire thing much more concrete- easier to communicate, which'll make it easier for her to respond. And if things go well- they go well. If not? You just earned a couple EXP. Handle it with grace- rejection is usually awkward for both parties.

Good luck, knock 'em dead. And make sure to give her hot older sister my number.

Why is talking to a member of the gender you're sexually attracted to so HUGE! MONUMENTAL OHMIGAWD EEEEK!

Just talk to her; this is called reconnaisance.
Talk to others who know her; this is called intelligence gathering.
Assess the information, then just ask something simple and non-threatening. A cup of coffee, lunch, a drink according to your situation.

Or there's my favorite line; “Hey nice shoes, wanna fuck?”

On kyupol's note - I have never, ever, looked for a guy that acted like James Bond or Superman. :P
Yeah. The woman's preferred appearance of men apparently fluctuates depending on the time of month or year it is… As well as that's actually in style.

In my opinion, just get to know her first. You don't wanna regret asking her out later if she turns out to be a total bitch. Find out what you have in common by using a bit of eavesdropping or asking her questions about what she likes to do in a friendly manner rather than stalkerish. ask her occasional questions rather than ask her them all at once. Remember to ask other people as well so she doesn't get the hint yet. Using this method you could also figure out how she thinks of you based on her reactions before you even ask her out.

That is how you become a successful ninja… That was your question, right?

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!

Well if you want advice from a girl, I'd say that you should just be yourself, be friendly, listen to her, keep eye contact, and you know just treat her kindly and with respect. And as for asking her out, I'd say when you feel it's a good time just ask her. I've made the mistake of not asking someone out and then when I was ‘ready to ask them’ I found out he already had a girlfriend. So don't leave it too late!

the james bond part was a little too exag.

But the point is, act like the alpha male. You are calm, confident, and in control.


Unless of course… it winds up in the bedroom. There. You can be submissive to your mistress. lol!

NOW UPDATING!!!

Just ask her if she's free some time and invite her to go see a movie with you. You become awesome friends first, take her out on a few more “dates” with out calling them so, and everything else after should click.

Saying “Hey you have nice tits and I'd like to f**k you sometime… wanna go out with me?” then proceeding to shove your webcomics in her face is just gonna freak her out. Don't go there.

I'd say if you're going to ask her out definitely ask her out in person. Asking her online or through a medium which doesn't require face to face contact might be easier if you're shy but it comes off as being horrendously nervous and a little impersonal. If you ask her in person, its more confident. If you ask her at the end of a nice night out, it'll add a little romantic sparkle ;p *nudge nudge*

But do spend some time getting to know her first. I don't know how long you have known her mind, but if it's a recent thing it's better to know her as a friend first before anything else, because people tend to put a facade up until they know people better so they don't give the wrong impression.

Best of luck!

But if it works… you've struck gold. Sure, you'd have to ruin thousands of potential relationships to find that one, but doesn't our culture try to promote those odds anyway? Y'know, with the “There's someone out there for everyone” line? The above technique might be worth it after all… >:D

(Personally, I want better odds than 1 out of however many billion people are alive right now…)

If she's receptive, proceed to the next phase which is doing fluff talk about say… sports or the weather or fashion or something. Then carry the ball from there.

uhhhhhhh no. Never talk about the weather, only something interesting and relevant. *yawns*

Unless you're from Kansas. Here, weather is pretty much a universally acceptable conversation topic- but mostly because it likes to defy logic on a relatively frequent basis, making it both interesting and relevant :-p

Just be straight to the point. I found being forward always helps. Just say “Either you go out with me or ill rape your mother.”

Don't grab her tits to say hello. I've kicked many people for that.
