How can I ask someone out through e-mail?

Question - (30 April 2015) 2 Answers - (Newest, 1 May 2015)
A female United States age 26-29, anonymous writes:

Okay, I know face-to-face is best. It is, I agree with you. But in my current situation I don't have that opportunity anymore.

I met this guy, let's call him Tom, during a study opportunity. Basically students had a chance to apply to specific set of masterclasses and those with the best applications were picked. I was one of the lucky ones. Anyway, none of us knew each other when we met up during the first masterclass. Over the course of the last month, this changed of course.

I hit it off with Tom and after a while I started thinking about asking him out. I don't know if he feels the same way about me, but I figured I'd try. Unfortunately it was virtually impossible to get him alone. My natural shyness doesn't help and I simply didn't have the guts to ask him out in front of everyone else. Anyway, today was the last masterclass and I had a great time with him, but I clammed up when the opportunity arose and then he had to go, so I lost my chance again.

I don't have his phone number, but we exchanged email addresses and of course there's facebook. So what would be the best way to ask him out?

Honeypie agony auntSince you have his e-mail I'd send him a mail. Did you guys talk about a place or movie or something - maybe ask him to see the new Age of Ultron movie (example) if you talked about that - or a new exhibit or show, comedy club or whatnot...

Always a good excuse to ask if someone wants to "join" you in an outing :)

Are you prepared for rejection, as in, you don't hear from him? Because that may happen. There are many guys on here who cannot deal with rejection at all and so never ask out on a date the woman they would like to date.
