LPT: If you’re romantically interested in someone you don’t know well, don’t ask them out right away. Make sure you’ve talked to them long enough that they could’ve reasonably brought up their relationship status.

THANK YOU. A co-worker asked me out for coffee, which is sweet, but we’ve literally only talked about work stuff so far so I had to go OUT of my way to bring up my partner today which felt out of place and uncomfortable for me.


What if that someone is too socially awkward to even bring up any personal life details?


How quick do people ask for dates nowadays? If you meet someone and won’t have another opportunity to see them, you should probably take the shot. If it’s a coworker you should probably make sure you know their relationship status.


Or you could, you know, just ask if they’re single?
