Ask for their number. Good luck tiger, this one’s hard to pull off unless you’re naturally suave or have a lot of practice, which first involves a lot of failures. You may want to try out some of the below tips first to warm yourself up for success.
Give them your email. This is your chance to take the burden of the follow up off your shoulders and onto theirs. Your chance of scoring a date with this technique is greatly lowered due to the fact that you’re not taking matters into your own hands, but at least you planted a seed. Maybe it’s a weed, they don’t need a lot of water or attention to grow.
Get their full name to stalk them on, er, find them on, Facebook. Ah, Facebook, the modern man’s background check. Becareful with this one. Your prospect may “get to know you” through your immature status updates or those photos of you and the bros getting wasted on frat row. Increase your chances of success by making your tagged photos and status updates private.
Find out where they work/hang out at. If not done correctly this is borderline stalking, so be careful and if you have a penchant for creepy don’t try it. Make sure you let them know that you might stop by so they’re not taken off guard. If you’re planning on visiting them at their job, express interest beforehand on the product or service their company offers. If they tell you what gym they go to then feign surprise that you’re also a member of that gym (don’t worry if you’re not really, you can always sign up later). Tip: Mention the times that you go to the gym. Chances are they’ll respond by letting you know their workout schedule as well so you can increase your chances of “running into” them.
Give them your myspace username. MySpace is dead for the average social networker, but not for you artists and musicians who can still utilize the platform to showcase your talents which you can also use to impress the babes.
Set up a date on the spot. This tip isn’t for the faint of heart, you’ve got to have some balls to get this one to work. But we have faith in you and if you’ve been reading the tips over the past few days you have a strong chance of pulling this one off (like your high school principal always said, “be prepared!”) Tip: Setting up a lunch is good – going out during the daytime gives you both have the option to cut it short for work or other “unanticipated” obligations if the date blows and you need to bail.
Go back to the place you met them at and try to spot them again. This suggestion gives novice daters another opportunity to try out one of the above tips. Don’t worry, we were all scared our first time, but practice makes perfect and if they’re cool enough to go back for more surely they’re worth overcoming the fear to make the attempt to set up some one-on-one time to get some nukkie.
