Asking Someone on a Date

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!

    • I can't believe I just found this awesome website .... love everything I see on it!
    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
