    Dating – Making the Move

    Hello. I’m new to this forum. Hopefully will get some good advice. Here’s the situation.

    I met a girl (around 27 yo) about 8-9 months ago at a business gathering. We were all having coffee and talked about business and exchanged phone numbers. At that time, I wanted to ask her out but I was having some personal issues which I wanted to sort out first. Now, all things are sorted out and I feel that I am ready. I believe that she is still single and I want to ask her out. Note that I haven’t been in touch with her since back then. I’m 32 and I haven’t been on the dating scene for over 2 years now.
    How do I make contact with her again without sounding desperate? Should I text her and ask her if she would like to join me for coffee sometime; and then ask her out in person? Should I ring her instead? Given that I’ve already met her once, should I ask her out directly on the phone ? What’s the best approach?
    Thanks in advance for any advice.
    John

    just make contact and say ‘hi’ and ask how she’s been, what she’s been up to… you’d love to catch up. how about (insert date idea blank) without actually saying “want to go out on a date”

    so.. “let’s catch up over coffee..” or “dinner” or .. “i heard about this neat festival and wanted to go check it out this saturday.. want to join me?” etc.

    good luck!

    You should go for it. I’d rather regret what I’ve done than what I’ve never done.
