I would actually prefer talking then naturally asking her out, but let's be honest I know I'm texting to ask her out, sometimes she gets distracted, why not cut to the chase sometimes?
Most Helpful Girl
Generally I'm a cut to the chase type of person
With everything I do; flirting, arguments, I'm sorry's
I don't like beating around the bush and most people love me for that, some find it rather aggressive or off putting
Which is why it depends on your relationship with the person you want to ask out..
If it's kind of already in the open that you like her
Just go for it no need to make it
more awkward than it already is...
If it's someone that you met maybe not to long ago though it'll probably just be off putting
They won't know how to respond and thus avoid you "possibly forever"
