Asking A Stranger Out

After that, you can text them a little more before asking if they want to go on a date with you. Do you want to exchange numbers? Then, suggest a specific day and activity for you two to do. In that case, say something like, "I was thinking of checking out that new coffee shop downtown this weekend.

Would you like to join me? Wanna show me the ropes next week? You can ask them what restaurants they like or where they like to get a coffee.
