    It's SMS, how could he possibly frame it one way or another?

    "How about dinner at 9 on friday?"

    Exact phrasing:

    "Well get better soon. Did you want to take another shot at dinner this friday night (if you're feeling better of course)?"

    Might be a little too casual, might be a little too presumptuous, might be a lot of things. Unclear it was not. Also left her plenty of "legitimate" excuses to get out of it as well if she's looking to save face.

    Haven't heard back still.

    Rule 1: Don't ask out over a text.
    Rule 2: If you do ask out over text, don't then get anxious about reply time.
    Rule 3: Call and use spoken words, gets an immediate answer one way or t'other and if it is a polite no, you can get on with your life and stop stressing about receiving a reply. Plus the girl will respect you more for showing some sort of balls to ring her...the text message thing is just too easy to ignore and frankly makes you look **** scared.

    Haha, schooled.

    For future reference, though, in full agreement with Ripper. To-the-point friendliness over the phone >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the greatest txt you ever sent. Plus, as he said, you save yourself worrying about whether 23 minutes is long enough for a reply to have occurred or whether you should wait for 23:02 minutes.

    The trick on the phone is to have a back-up plan of what to say for "Hmmm, I dunno...." other than hanging up the phone and standing in front of a mirror listening to Panic! At The Disco with razor in hand. A text vs call tips the 'ignore him or give him a go?' continuum more in your favour if she's not 100% sure too.

    One trick if it's looking a bit iffy is to ask her out on the phone and if there's the slightest hint of "I dunno..." to then say "Look, I'm busy, you're busy, we're all busy. Give me a call or txt if you're free on Friday and we'll see where I'm at. Okay? See ya, buh bye." before she has a chance to say anything. Maybe she'll call, maybe she won't, a lot of the time she will. There's a nice (in my experience) twist if you want to stoke the fires, though; if she calls/txt's saying she's free, be busy. "Ah **** sorry, catching up with my mates that night, literally just off the phone to them!" Then arrange another date from there with "Let me make it up to you, how about Monday night?". Because you were busy when she decided she wanted to see you, it turns the situation around. I mean, well, you sorta owe her a date now don't you?

    Shocking how often it worked.

    NB: Doesn't work with txt
    NB2: Never, ever call your mates 'my boys'. Mates = dudes you hang with. Boyz = dudes you prey on under-age girls with.

    Yeah I agree in principle with what you have said, but she's already been persuing me and it will have been a week since I previously saw her by Friday night. If you play too hard to get you won't be gotten .

    I also disagree that a text is inappropriate to ask someone out with. Any form of communication is ok, provided that she is comfortable with it. The way you know if she's comfortable with it is if she initiates with it. I hands down prefer face to face contact though, even if I am absolutely terrible at reading the signs (got burned very badly the last two times I asked girls out like that). Only when that really isn't possible do I go with other media.

    I may or may not have actually done this last year. There were extenuating circumstances! And those circumstances extenuate it!

    But yes, it's ill-advised.

    And the answer was no, for those of you playing at home.
