I was wondering if you ladies prefer text or face-to-face interaction when being asked out because the latter seems preferable for the sake of authenticity while the former relieves pressure from other parties? In addition, what phrasing do you ladies prefer me to use? Not sure if this is the right mindset but if I were somehow able to choose a first date, I would choose a picnic or a park because it builds communication with each other. If my thinking is wrong, you are free to correct me. I have been in relationships before but I never initiated before other than Tinder, which I no longer use at this point.
