it could work but why dont you just ask her like a normal person if you want to be romantic think of the perfect place to take her not how you are going to ask her plus if she doesnt say yes that would just be very awkward
Personally, I am a girl who loves cheesy things, (especially poems like this). I've been asked out via poem before, so I know for a fact that it works!
Just understand that this girl may not like cheesy things at all, and a poem could simply creep her out or turn her off. If you know her well, you'll probably know what she likes and what she doesn't like, and if you write her a poem she will at least be flattered if anything.
If you do decide to give her the poem I would do two things:
1) I know this has been said before, but maybe replace the word "love" with "like"? Love can come off too strong to some. 2) If you give her the poem, stay with her and watch her read the poem. Don't just hand it to her and run off like some coward. Maybe she'll have some positive reactions that you'll want to see!
As this line of comments suggests, every girl is different: [link] I think your best strategy, if you want to give her something that shows you care, is to tailor the gift specifically to her personality and interests.
If she likes poems, give her the poem (although I would agree on leaving "love" out, you don't want her to feel pressured or rushed before you're even dating, she might be intimidated by that), if she likes flowers, give her flowers, if she likes chocolate, give her chocolate, if she likes something else, give her whatever is relevant to that.
And if you don't know her well enough yet to know specifically what she would be excited to receive, then you don't know her well enough to write that poem yet. If that's the case, I'd start with something simple and more noncommittal so she doesn't back off right away or feel uncomfortable that you're rushing things. Just ask her if she'd like to go get a cup of coffee or see a movie or grab some lunch/dinner sometime.
I'm going to start by apologizing for all the rude and unhelpful comments you've been getting about this. Sometimes I think people skim through these forums looking for people to harass >.< Anyway, I think the poem is very cute, and it's a great way to ask someone out! Don't listen to the people who are saying you're too old for it, or it's cheesy, because that's not true. (Most of them are boys anyway, and what do they know!) But if I might, I'm unsure of how comfortable this girl will be with you using the word 'love'. I mean, I don't know either of you personally, so I can't say for sure how she'll respond to that, but some girls might find that a little too ... rushed, you know? Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to tell her that later in your relationship, so just take it slow! Maybe try replacing the word love with something like "I care for you more than you may know". It still gets the point across that she has a special place in your heart. Well, good luck, I hope things go great for you and her!
This would interest me maybe if I was ten, and even then I'd probably think it was cheesy. If you want to make her swoon, do it with some flowers or a box of chocolates. A poem can be pretty cringe-worthy and awkward for the girl.
Well yeah. I would laugh in this guy's face if he gave me a crappy poem like that. But I wouldn't be any happier with flowers/chocolate, because I would feel like my affection was being bought. It doesn't make me happy with people buy things for me. But I know a lot of girls enjoy getting those sorts of things.
5 months is plenty of time. Knew my wife a week before we went out. 1 week after that we were 6 nights together 1 night off. 2 weeks after that I gave notice at my place. 1month later we lived together. 1 year later we were married.
Fuck it. go for it.
Although to be honest 10 years later we're getting divorced. but fuck we had a good time. lol
I had a good run and a good time. Whats life without mistakes? Yeah rushing is a risky prospect, but he's known the girl for 5 months, thats hardly rushing. In fact I'd recommend moving quicker lest he get Friend Zoned.
Five months is a fuck load of rushing for "love". I would be alright to date and fuck someone after five months, but that's about it. Marriage? Pfft. Whoever I marry I will date for years beforehand, because divorce shouldn't be as common of a quick-fix solution as it is today, and I don't want legal bullshit with some shmuck I barely know.
Don't do it, Just ask her out in person. Even tho it is a cool poem use it as like a later thing, So like be. Hey i was going to use this to ask you out, But i did it in person instead, you will feel better if you ask her in person than giving her a note asking her out. Man grow some and ask her out!
Five months isn't a rush. If the poem was more extreme, I'd say tone it down, but it's not overbearing or anything (Like I'd die for you--I love you..ects.)
If she thinks you are being a stalker, then she doesn't like you. Honest truth: a guy could bump into a girl, and if she hates him--she will think he is a stalker. If she likes him, she'll call it fate.
