Asking Someone on a Date


Recommended Posts

There’s someone in my social circle that I would like to get to know better. Whenever I see her, we are always with a crowd of people, so I was racking my brain to come up with how to ask and get her attention.   Among other things she is an ASL teacher... if I started signing to her I think she would be absolutely floored (and hopefully say yes!) I would like to sign to her:

”I would like to call you tomorrow, if that is okay.”

I’ll cover some more general words between now and then, but that’s how I’d like to ‘surprise’ her as it were. Thanks in advance!

Sorry for all the posts. I did some brief reading on sentence structure, I am reminded of my Russian studies where sentences can be very simple and order can determine emphasis. Obviously I will take anyone’s advice, but something like:

- Here too many people

- future you me dinner?

- tomorrow i call, okay?

Hi! Looks like you have some of ASL's structure already down 👏 

You could sign: many people here wow.. you want leave? You, me dinner, us finish? (For a yes/no question: eyebrows raised, leaning forward slightly). This loosely translates to: There's too many people here, you wanna go and get dinner? Just the two of us? 

Best of luck asking her out!

    • Hi my name is Mamie and I'm 39 year old returning college student at NVCC. I am on my third semster of ASL but need a lot of practice and actually joined this forum hoping to meet people and get some practice in. I needed a language for my degree but chose asl as I have a family member who though I don't get to see often would love to be able to communicate with better. It's nice to meet everyone and if anyone would like to get together and practice or just chat please let me know. :)
    • Hello:  ASL Community I am interesting in learning ASL and hope this website will be rewarding experience.  Was introduced to signing about twenty five years ago while working at the Post Office in Atlanta, however I left that job in 1998 and haven't signed since.  Being retired, I would like to be re-introduced to ASL and am taking the "Start ASL" Online Course.  Started two weeks ago.  Hopefully will be able to put into practice the lessons I will be learning on this forum.  If anyone is in the beginning stage of ASL and would like to practice, please contact me.  Thanks.
