So, ask out? You mean they want you to meet up or something? Or like just start texting each other intimately because there is difference. I suggest saying yes but asking for their number, snapchat, anything and everything you can get. Don't be obvious though. OR you can say no. It's pretty weird that the first text you got was one being asked out? ALSO, how was it said?
I would say it is bad. That would indicate to me that it is either a scam, a girl or guy who is desperate and unstable, or possibly trying to use you to get back at someone else. The other possibility is that they just want to hook up. A girl or guy looking for a meaningful relationship on a dating site will want to talk with you for at least a few days at length before asking you on a date. I would say also for your own safety that you shouldn't agree to meet with them before being able to tell if they arr who they say they are. I usually advance to phone calls before agreeing to meet with someone. Be safe and good luck.
Well you haven't gotten the chance to get a feel for their personality so it could send the vibe that you are either desperate or that you are interested in them primarily for how they look in their profile pic.
in my experience - that would be nuts. Women assume like a 50% psycho serial killer factor upfront lol. So first you chat for a while, personally I let THEM ask for texting... then I might ask for a call after a few days-after one call - it's either a fit or not in my experience at which point you (if it's a fit) ask for a date and get it.
