How to ask her out properly after crap first attempt? Watch

    So I tried to ask out a girl I like yesterday. I say attempted because essentially I had tried to not be too overt/direct but ended up being a little too indirect/off margin and not really making it clear I was asking her on a date. I made it sound more like a group hang out/night out with friends that I was inviting her to.

    she wasn't available for the night anyway because something she'd already planned (which she'd actually told me about a week ago but I'd forgotten.) I'm not a shy person so confidence is not an issue, I just regret not being more direct because I still dont know if there's any mutual interest there or not. I would prefer to ask her in person but our schedules at uni are very different and so I hardly see her unless we're at events together and even then we go out as part of a group so not a lot one-to-one time.Just wondering how I should try again? Is it best to wait a whole week until I see her again in person (we're both going to a uni theatre show next thursday with a few others) I feel like thats a bit long to wait with no gaurantee i'll have a chance to ask her in person.

    Just tell her you'd like to take her out on a date. Do it the next time you see her, just try to "bump" into her or something.
