An example would be something like "I like you and am interested in taking you out to x place does x day and time work?" Would that be too formal or blunt? I'm just not very informed with exactly how to ask a girl out I am in my early 20s. Also, do girls think its weird if a stranger just comes up to them and tries to make converstation and how can you tell if they are open to being asked out?
Hi there, I think it depends on the type of girl you want to ask out. Because everyone is different. Personally, for me, I like blunt, straightforward men and so your approach would go well with me. If you want go with it.
I don't think its a problem approaching a stranger... Just be soft. Start with pleasantries and work your way up.
Tell-tale signs that she wants you to come up to her. Well she will glance at you then glance away and back again at you. She will smile. She will do all these things and more!
Don't worry your gonna do fine once you find yourself in that situation. AND don't worry if you get rejected at first. I'm sure its going to be their loss.
If you said that right off the bat it may scare them off. With a stranger I wouldn't ask her out right away, maybe offer her your number and tell her she should text you sometime, you'd like to get to know her better. Every girl's different. I have friends who would totally freak out if someone asked them out right away and I have some who would go with it and agree, it just depends on the girl's personality. I think it's okay to start a conversation with a stranger, but if she's giving you short answers or avoiding eye contact she's probably not interested or extremely nervous.
One thing about women is they don't want you to ask them. I want you to tell them and leave them. They want you to be blunt forward and lead the interaction and be a man. They get tired of guys playing games. And when you're not forward it seems like you're playing games.
