Neither one. "Should I date him?" is correct.

[q1]> The first one, but the pronoun "I" is always written with a capital letter, a sentence[/q1]
[q1]> (including a question) always starts with a capital letter and a question always ends with a[/q1]
[q1]> question mark (?).[/q1]

[q1]> Regards, Einde O'Callaghan[/q1]

Thank u and of course i know that 'I' is capital and question should end with '?'! The caps were
for emphasis.

Partners date each other. But couples double-date *with* other couples, or go dating *with* other
couples in a group?

I think. I've never really got the hang of this dating idea <grin>
