    Would you rather a guy be upfront when asking you out or play it cool?

    Eg.
    Upfront: "I really like talking to you and I've been wanting to do this for a while, let's go for a coffee this weekend my treat *answer* great, can I get your number to sort out a time and place?"

    And cool basically all of it without the first sentence. Any advice welcomed.

    Upfront definitely. I would be more likely to say yes if its upfront, its cute

    Personally, I'd prefer upfront. But a mix of being upfront and playing it cool is probably a safe bet.

    My partner tried to play it cool, or at least so he thought -

    "My dad thinks we are going out"
    "Tell him I'm going out with someone then"
    "No, 'cause I wouldn't mind going out with you. Want to?" :laugh:

    As a guy, I like to be upfront but subtle at first, if you're getting the vibe they're into you to just go for it, chances are the girl is wanting you to do it

    Upfront is the best I think because playing it cool just makes them seem like they don't care or somthing

    That was my thought. I wanna separate myself from any other guy cause I've got genuine feelings for her. Feel like I gotta make that clear.

    I would say that in this generation where dating is HUGE, everyone is out to do it, be upfront or you make risk the person whom you are wanting to ask out to loose interest or seem like you're only talking for one thing!

    Cute smiles, my heart and a thick cock.

    I'm otherwise broke but I'm hugely ambitious.

    Upfront, always. Just say, 'I'd like to get to know you more if you're interested in going out for a coffee/drink/date?'
