Most Popular Way to Ask Someone on a Date

How Were You Asked Out on Your Last Date?

OnSugar blogger Confessions of an Online Dating Queen can't remember the last time she was asked out the old-fashioned way, like over the phone. Instead, prospects come a calling with texts and emails and Facebook messages.

Drew Barrymore complained about the irritating technology-and-dating relationship last week, saying the Internet has taken all the mystery out of meeting someone. Maybe we're due for a revival of old-school dating? How were you asked out on your last date?

My bf and I just had date night tonight :) He asked me in person. Although if we're talking about FIRST dates then I don't remember. Either text or in person. We both worked odd hours, so it was easy to talk to each other through texting. But we did hang out a few times before we actually went on a date, so he might have asked me on one of those times.

In person on the date we went on before that.

I'm not really sure how to answer this poll, LOL. I'm kind of seeing a guy right now, and when we were hanging out a couple of weeks ago he said he wanted to take me out on a date--so, in person. But then when we actually made plans it was via AIM and text... LOL. Plus we've spoken on the phone to finalize plans, so... all of the above? :P

In person and via text. I was making casual conversation with everyone with my family whilst on holidays. I just happened to mention that there's a movie I'd like to see. This guy comes up behind me and tells me he wants to see it, too. I guess he was implying we see it together. Anyway, he sends me text messages, asking me on a date. I didn't reply so the next time we see each other, he asks me out (in front of some of my relatives).

The last time I was asked out on a date it was in person. It didn't lead to anything though, so I can't really say, "See, it's proof! Asking in person leads to marriage!" I will, however, say that I would turn down a guy who asked me out via text or Facebook message. I'm sorry, but that's just not OK. And I love it when guys say, "But it's awkward to ask a girl in person!" or "I'm not good at talking on the phone." Um, if you lack that much confidence, why would I possibly want to date you? "hey do u wanna go on a date w/ me?" is not an acceptable way of asking a girl out past middle school.

My now-fiance and I started dating two years ago and we made a deal to never, ever text. We only spoke on the phone - we didn't even exchange email addresses until we were exclusive. This is kind of old-fashioned, but we were only 24 at the time and I am so, so glad we did it that way!

Actually, I was the one that sent him a text asking if he wanted to have lunch. He oh-so-smoothly replied that he wasn't available for lunch but would love to have dinner with me. four years later we are married :)

I met him, he mentioned we should get together the next week (in person), then texted to ask me formally and pick a day, and then called me the night before. so I chose text but it wasn't as informal as it sounds.

Facebook IM... almost 10 months later and we're still together. I don't think the method matters, I don't get out much anyway with work.
