So there is this girl who works at my bank that I’ve always found cute. I’ve never asked anyone out who works in customer service, but I’m thinking I would like to make an exception with her.
Long story short, I am a pilot who’s training in Florida to become an instructor. On my way to school one day, I stopped by the bank in my uniform, and she noticed, and every time I’ve gone in since, she takes an interest and tells me how cool it is and “I’m excited for you.” I only go in maybe once a month. Next time I see her, if she asks about my flight school, I would like to invite her up flying with me, since I go alone anyway to build time. It might not technically be “asking her out,” but at least it would give me the opportunity to get to know her better, and ask her out later away from her place of work. Any opinions?
BTW, we found out we went to high school together in Georgia, but never knew each other then. She is two years younger. I’m 24, she’s 22.

Just ask her out! Life is too short to waste opportunities if it looks as if someone likes you. You never know, she might be the love of your life.

ask her out but don’t give her all your details. she may be a great girl or she may be a gold digger who will be what she thinks you want until she has control of your assets and then suddenly she will reveal the real her.
no, i would be careful here. ask her out for coffee or a meal and treat her well. but don’t try to impress her too much and really focus on getting to know her values – before you reveal your own. some people are very good manipulators. if they think you have money, they will lie and be anyone to hook you.
that said, she could be perfect for you. just be careful.
DCMParticipantDecember 12, 2014 at 10:02 pm #69131
I think that’s a great idea ksuapilot. But as JChristie mentioned, don’t do that to impress her or anything. Only invite her that first time just to have a chat alone with her and see if anything develops. If you feel a relationship is developing, ask her to a date (IMHO, something that’s not too fancy!).
And always be yourself around her. Hope this helps!

Great idea ksuapilot but that might come across as bragging.. I would first go coffee or happy hour it theres anything there I would invite her..
ksuapilotParticipantDecember 14, 2014 at 12:29 am #69148
What if I invited her like I said before, but “sorry, had a cancellation.” (about two thirds of my flights don’t happen anyway due to weather or maintenance.) I would probably just call and ask to meet for coffee instead.
The thing is, I have a problem asking people out at their work, and my original idea doesn’t really seem like “asking her out.” This wouldn’t be a bragging thing, maybe just a quick hop over the coast and back. Everything past that would be kept simple, just getting to know each other. I would certainly see what she could bring to the table. I’m actually a pretty humble person, it just doesn’t come across that way in a forum haha

Ask her out bro, tellers give the best head, no bs.
JohnbobParticipantDecember 14, 2014 at 7:55 pm #69158
If I can give my opinion, I think your first idea is actually really good, and relatively safe if you play it right. If she’s startled and obviously doesn’t want it, you should be able to tell by her reaction and play it off as if it was just a flirty, joking one-liner and just laugh it off. But if she accepts, then that’s one hell of a romantic first date. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
pearl01ParticipantDecember 15, 2014 at 8:42 am #69161
@ ksuapilot would you be able to talk one on one and really get to know this person? be 100% in the moment with her.
notjustanybody70ParticipantDecember 15, 2014 at 2:38 pm #69197
Inviting her to go flying is a really good idea. It is always best to know someone even just a little bit before you ask them out.
Nismo350ParticipantDecember 15, 2014 at 8:48 pm #69248
How many people will get the opportunity to get to go flying like that? It’s a great way to get to know someone. You should do it.
ThemedicParticipantDecember 16, 2014 at 2:51 am #69252
I would ask nicely as a friend to see how she responds but the key is not to make a big deal out of it for 2 reasons. 1) if you come off as a crazy person if you show negativity to rejection and 2) You work with her so it could get weird if things flesh out and they turn ugly in the office.
Angel123456789ParticipantDecember 16, 2014 at 10:17 pm #69322
Yes…. do it!! Life is too short to waste time….
RestlessHeartSyndromeParticipantDecember 17, 2014 at 5:34 am #69327
Don’t hesitate, make a move. Regret from not doing anything is way worse than any rejection you might receive. She sounds interested, and taking he up with you would be a good date. If she says something like “afraid of heights” counter with a dinner/movie date.
