Right, any of you that know me well will know that my last girlfriend cloned my credit card and stole £1000 from me. Combined with the bullshit I get almost every day at work for the way I look, its put me off dating for about 2 years. Recently I've met this girl at work. I really like her, she's sweet, funny and gorgeous. And I want to ask her out. I know she doesnt have a boyfriend, and she actually speaks to me instead of being repulsed by me, which is cool. I've no problem with the confidence issue at all, because I've been alone for so long and been rejected by so many women I find that rejection doesnt bother me anymore. So my question is this, how do I ask her out? What, exactly do I say? I realise this sounds like a stupid question, but bare with me. I asked 2 girls out last year, both said yes, but both gave me the big Lets Just Be Friends before we went out. So I want to avoid the whole "Date" word, but I want to communicate that I'm after more than friendship, if that makes sence? So any ideas, suggestions or help would be awesome.
