    There's this cute guy who works on the reception at the hairdressers I go to, but I've haven't asked him out before now as I couldn't be certain if he was gay or even single.

    Last week I was looking at guys on Plenty of Fish (I don't actually have an account), and I saw his profile. And I was in luck! The cute guy at my hairdressers is my age, gay, and currently looking for a boyfriend.

    So I would like your advice on the best way to ask him out on a date. I think I have more chance of success if I do something in person rather than creating a Plenty of Fish account and messaging him, but it would feel too awkward to actually ask him out whilst he's working.

    So I was thinking of writing my number on a piece of paper, and giving it to him when I pay. If I fold it up really small, by the time he has unfolded it and read it I would have left the salon = no awkwardness! If someone did this for me where I work I think I would be flattered and just smile even if I had no desire to message them...or does it seem too stange a thing to do?!

    Thanks

    Ohh yeah, I have a hair cut booked at his salon tomorrow!

    Just because he's looking for a boyfriend, doesn't mean he'll like you. You could be ugly to him, don't be so forward.

    I know he may not like me, but at least now I know there is a chance

    lol, needlessly harsh. OP, the folded up paper ideas is a winner, muchmuch less awkward and also pretty cute/different. Do it! you needn't even see him again if he doesn't call, so there's much more to gain than there is to lose.
