It takes confidence and an open mind to ask a person out on a date. Once a person has found someone to spend time with, there is always the question of whether or not that person feels the same. Using a trite pick-up line is not always the best way to go. A person must also bear in mind they need an idea of where they will go and what they will do on the date before the question is even posed. This presents multiple issues as the person must also be prepared to be turned down. The best way to succeed is to be prepared for just about anything, including a positive answer.
