Getting to the age when it's childish to ask "do you want to be my girlfriend" Watch

    Myself and a friend were talking about this the other day. She is 'seeing' a boy and we were talking about whether it's going to turn into a relationship. Then it got me thinking, are we too old to use the "do you want to be my girlfriend" line... i don't know, it just seems really playground when you say it. It makes me think of the times in primary school when you get a 'girlfriend'.


    How do you/would you ask a girl or guy out?

    Ask them to the cinema or something which involves the two of you. That's how it starts and that helps the spark and sometimes it takes a few dates before the kissing begins.

    Can't imagine anyone saying 'do you want to be my girl/boyfriend'. I didn't bother with all that nonsense at school.

    It typically seems to go along the lines of, "Fancy a shag?" these days which somehow manifests into a relationship.

    You have to get them out of earshot of their five children first though.

    I don't ask her. I tell her.

    Haha. I just ended up pretty much in a proper relationship from the get go, but we never really discussed it (I had already known him for quite a while), and after about 3-4 weeks had the awkward 'sooo...what are we?!' chat. Luckily we were both on the same page though and agreed that we were each others' boyfriend/girlfriend. (As much as I kind of cringe at those labels, in part because he's a heck of a lot more than just a boyfriend.)
