Asking Someone Out Online–From An Upscale Matchmaker

In this day and age, we interact more with people over the computer then we actually do in real life, more and more, people are turning to online dating, professional matchmakers ( such as me), facebook and even twitter and linked in to meet the loves of their lives. Many people will meet people through facebook, especially if that person shares mutual friends.

Here is a short article from CNN on the etiquette of asking someone outline:

Imagine, if you will, a crowded dance floor: Men and women are talking, laughing awkwardly and trying to gyrate their rhythmically challenged hips to that Phoenix song that goes “do let, do let, blah blah.”

One lone man ceases undulating to put his lips to the ear of the chick he’s grinding up on. “Hey,” he purrs, “Can I get your Twitter handle?”

We’ve reached that point, folks: the zenith of awkwardness whereby the cables of communication are so plentiful that we are wound in a web of our own making. In a sense, we have returned to the tangled days of Emily Post-esque courting etiquette — circa 1922 — whereby men left women calling cards and letters of introduction, not actually seeing the women themselves upon delivery, unless it was between 4 and 6 o’clock (yes, these were the actual rules).

Though we no longer carry engraved cards (2¾ to 3½ inches wide by 2 to 2¾ inches high), we do tout around the modern equivalent: a slew of digital identities that potential suitors must circumvent to get to the actual you.

While we admit that fixing the above issue wholesale would require a total brain-scrub of the world’s populace, we are prepared to offer a few date-making tips for all you hopeless (emphasis on the hopeless) romantics.

Facebook

Although the social-networking site has gained quite the bad rep in the romantic realm, being blamed for fueling jealousy and even divorces, it’s still a pretty good venue by which to hook up. (Yeah, it would be better for all of humanity if we refrained from Facebook-stalking those we’re into — but that cause is about as lost as our generation’s innocence).

So here are the ground rules. It’s totally OK to ask a person out via Facebook if you don’t have his/her number: e.g., you met a girl at a party, have a few mutual friends, but lost her in the crowd after that dude jumped in the rooftop kiddie pool naked and shook himself about, causing the crowd to scatter in discomfort.

Just shoot the object of your affection a message suggesting a hangout. A recent study by Oxygen Media and Lightspeed Research showed that one-third of women 18 to 34 check Facebook the moment they wake up (we’re guessing dudes are equally obsessive), so there’s an excellent chance your soon-to-be love will see your charming missive about that sick croquet tourney before s/he’s even brushed those pearly whites.
