  • Hello, everyone, my name is George, and today, we're going to learn how to ask someone out on a date via text.

  • Last week, I was looking through a dating app when I found someone that I really fancied.

  • I asked her what her favourite colour was.

  • She said it was green.

  • My favourite colour is green.

  • She said she liked "The Beatles".

  • I like "The Beatles".

  • It was true. I was in love.

  • But I didn't know how to ask her out on a date, so I went back home, back to England, to ask my friends and family for some advice.

  • I asked my best friend, Charlie.

  • - Hi, Charlie. - Oh, God.

  • Oh, no. Who are you?

  • I'm your best friend.

  • No, you're not.

  • How can I ask someone out via text?

  • Ask them, "Are you busy this weekend?"

  • Are you busy this weekend?

  • I asked my brother Will.

  • Hi, Will.

  • Oh, it's you.

  • Why is this microphone in my face?

  • What are you doing?

  • Um, how can I ask a girl out via text?

  • I don't know.

  • "Are you free this weekend?"

  • Are you free this weekend?

  • This means, "Do you have time this weekend?"

  • And I asked a man on a bench.

  • Um, "Are you up for doing something this weekend?"

  • Are you up for doing something this weekend?

  • This means, "Are you interested in doing something this weekend?"

  • The best way to ask someone out on a date is to ask them if they're busy first, using some of these expressions.

  • This makes it easier for them to say "no" if they're not interested.

  • If they are interested, you can invite them to do something together, using these expressions.

  • Then say, "Do you fancy a coffee?"

  • Do you fancy a coffee?

  • Uh... "Do you want to go to (the) cinema?"

  • Do you want to go to the cinema?

  • Uh... "Are you up for watching a film?"

  • Are you up for watching a film?

  • If you know of any other ways to ask someone out on a date, please let me know in the comments section.
