Hey there, fabulous readers! It’s your romantic guru, Louisa Loveluck, and today we’re diving into the world of love and relationships with some seriously cute ways to ask a guy to be your boyfriend.

There are numerous ways to ask him out, such as writing him a handwritten letter, asking him out on your birthday, or having a friend do it.

Women usually look for dates, so asking a guy out isn’t really common. They enjoy pursuing a woman until she is his girlfriend when they see a woman they like.

Some men are not confident enough to go after the women they want, even though they take great pride in the chase.

If you’ve been dating for a while or have a male friend who you’re interested in but hasn’t made a move, it could be because he likes you but isn’t confident enough to ask you to be his girlfriend.

He might be your boyfriend, but sometimes it’s not clear if you’re just dating. If you ask him to be your boyfriend, you never know what might happen.

Possibly the “one.” For those of you who are ready to ask the guy you’ve been crushing on to be your boyfriend, here are twenty cute ways to do it.

How To Ask Someone To Be In A Relationship

So, you’ve been dating for a while. You think he’s boyfriend material, but he hasn’t popped the question yet.

You’re tired of waiting, and you’ve decided to ask him yourself. Here are five ways to do it:

1. Make Sure He Likes You First

We don’t need to talk about this because the guy likes you and hasn’t asked you to be his girlfriend yet if you’re dating him.

You should make sure he likes you before you go and act silly with a male friend.

His body language will tell you everything you need to know, but you can’t ask him. The following should be watched out for: He seems to be talking to you a lot. Does he lick his lips a lot?

I mean, he thinks you’re attractive. Is he standing with his feet shoulder-width apart and his hands on his hips when you’re around?

The Superman pose, as described by body language experts, means he wants you close to his behind. Another thing you can do is flirt with him to see if he does the same. You should ask him once you’re confident he likes you.

2. Don’t Ask During Sex

When having sex, men don’t think straight. The last thing these men want to do is talk because they are having a great time right now.

He might also be so turned on that he says yes to your request even though he doesn’t mean it.

He then feels bad about what he did and thinks about it. Make sure you talk to the guy you like about taking things to the next level while wearing clothes!

3 Don’t Confess Your Undying Love

Do not be shy, tell your guy you love him, and he will run a mile! Instead, find out how he feels and be open to telling them that you like them.

It could mean one of three things that you have to ask. He’s either trying to suppress his feelings or try to determine whether you feel the same way about him. His feelings for you might not be good.

Don’t get too worked up about things if he’s not into you like that because you don’t want to make a fool of yourself.He wants you to say I love you first unless he makes some clear signs.

4 Don’t Ask When You’ve Been Drinking

It might sound like a good idea to ask out your love interest when you’re tipsy, but it’s not. Alcohol makes people do and say things they wouldn’t normally do.

When asking a guy to be your boyfriend, you want both of you to be in your right mind. He might say yes, and then regret it in the morning.

Or he could say no and regret it in the morning. Either way, he’s said something he didn’t mean, leading to a very short-lived romance or no romance at all.

5 Be Casual About It

Men prefer things to happen naturally and don’t feel pressured to be in a relationship.

If he likes you, he’ll wait for the right time and let you know now. Because he doesn’t want to seem needy, even though he really likes you, he won’t usually get down on one knee and ask you to be his girl friend. Instead, he’ll try to play it cool.

Take the same approach he did and be carefree. Don’t worry him by saying, “I need to talk to you about something important.”

I’m sure he’ll say something like, “Oh, is that it?” when you finish talking. It was significant, I thought.

The start of a relationship is never a big deal to a guy, so it’s not that he’s not taking you seriously.

20 Cute Ways To Ask Someone To Be Your Boyfriend IRL

It can be intimidating and nerve-wracking to ask someone to be your boyfriend. If you’re just friends, you don’t know if he wants to take things further. If you’re dating, you’re not sure if the feelings are mutual. How should you tell a guy you like them?

Here are twenty different ways to ask someone to be your boyfriend:

It can be intimidating and nerve-wracking to ask someone to be your boyfriend. If you’re just friends, you don’t know if he wants to take things further. If you’re dating, you’re not sure if the feelings are mutual. How should you tell a guy you like them?

Here are twenty different ways to ask someone to be your boyfriend:

1 Send Him A Handwritten Letter

A handwritten letter is a meaningful way to show someone you care. In general, people don’t write handwritten letters anymore.

These days, everything is done on a computer, whether it’s through email or typed out on a Word document. A handwritten letter shows you’ve tried telling him how you feel. 

#2 Ask Him Out On Your Birthday

Depending on your closeness, he will take you out for your birthday or call and wish you a happy birthday.

Either way, during your conversation, you can say something like, “Do you know what the best birthday present would be?”

When he asks what, say, “to have a boyfriend just like you.” He’s either going to respond with, “I can be your boyfriend,” or if he’s not looking to take your friendship to the next level, he’ll come up with an excuse and say something like, “Oh no, you wouldn’t, I make a terrible boyfriend.” 

#3 Ask Him Out During A Game Of Truth Or Dare

Make sure you’re alone for this one so he can’t get away with saying something like, “Can we talk about this later, please?”

The truth question will be, “will you be my boyfriend?” If he chooses to dare, it means he doesn’t want to answer the question and probably doesn’t want to be your boyfriend. But if he says yes, you’re good to go! 

#4 Get a Friend To Do It

If you can’t stomach doing it yourself, ask a mutual friend to help you.

Get her to call or meet up with him and explain that you really like him and would like to ask him out, but you’re too shy. 

#5 Just Do It

Don’t waste time with any extras; tell him straight. You can either arrange to meet with him or wait until your next date.

Wait for the right moment, and tell him how it is. He’s either going to say yes or no.

#6 Write Him A Poem

Writing a poem is a really cute way to tell your guy friend you want him to be your boyfriend if you’ve got some poetry skills.

You can write about why you like him, from his looks to his personality. He’ll be so chuffed by the end of it; he won’t have any choice but to say yes!

#7 Send Him A Text Message  

Text messages are a great way to ask someone out because it removes the awkwardness out of the situation. It also gives you a get-out clause if he says no.

You can basically say, “Oh, I thought I was talking to someone else.”

Start a conversation, and then casually drop the question in and see what he says. 

#8 Play A Song Over The Phone

Find a song about a girl asking a guy to be her boyfriend or about women asking men out on dates.

When the song is over, call him and tell him to listen to it. He’ll most likely ask you why you told him to.

Then you can say something like, “I thought I’d get (name of the person who sings the song) to sing you instead because I was too shy to ask you myself.”

#9 Ask Him To Help You With Something

Men love helping women; it makes them feel manly. Ask him to help you do something strenuous around the house, like lawn mowing.

He’ll be all hot and sweaty; you can make him a cold drink and tell him how much you appreciate him helping you out, especially because you love seeing him dripping with sweat.

Pay attention to the energy; ask him to be your boyfriend if it’s right. 

#10 Get Him To Ask You Out

This one will only work if he gets the hint. Keep dropping hints that you would like him to ask you out during a conversation.

Say things like, “It would be cool if someone asked me out.” Or, “I would love to be a certain person’s girlfriend.”

But be over-the-top flirtatious with it, so he knows you are talking about him. 

#11 Set Up A Treasure Hunt Game

During Easter or Halloween, set up a treasure hunt game. Wrap up the gifts; one of them will be a note asking him to be your boyfriend. 

#12 Offer Him a Piece of Gum

Purchase some gum with wrappers, carefully open them, and remove the gum stick.

Inside each wrapper, write “Will you be my boyfriend?” and give him a piece of gum. He will see the question when he opens it.

#13 Present Him With A Journal

You might have to wait a while to do this one, but it’s sweet so it will be worth the wait. Every time you go on a date together, take pictures, print them out, and stick them in a journal.

Write about the date, how awesome it was, and how he made you feel. After the tenth date, write “will you be my boyfriend?” on the page.

#14 Put The Pressure On

You should only do this if you are sure he likes you. If not, you’ll look bad in front of a lot of people. Wait until there is an event, like a friend’s birthday here.

Request that the DJ give you the mic in the middle of the party and ask him to be your boyfriend.

#15 Change Your Name In His Phone

Ask to borrow his phone to text your mom because your battery has died. Actually send a text to your mom, by the way.

And at the same time, change your name on his phone to, ‘my girlfriend.’ Go to the bathroom and call him; when he answers the phone and asks, “Who’s this?” respond, “It’s me, (whatever your name is).

When he asks why your name comes up as, ‘my girlfriend’ replies, “I don’t know, do you want me to be?” By now, he would have guessed that you changed your name when you were sending the text. 

#16 Make Him A Video

Make a cute video of you asking him out if you’re too nervous to ask him out face to face.

To make the video look super cute, you can use a lot of apps. Feel free to send it to him and see what he says.

#17 Let It Slip

Ask him to be your boyfriend during the conversation and see what he does. Say something like, “The other day I talked to my friend, and she asked who I went to the movies with. I told her I went with my boyfriend.”

He’ll know you were talking about him now because he’s the guy you went to the movies with.

#18 Compliment Him First

Everyone loves praise, and complimenting your guy friend before asking him to be your boyfriend will make him feel good about himself.

Don’t compliment his looks because he’s probably heard it a thousand times before; instead, say something about his personality.

Since men are naturally protective over the women they’re attracted to, saying something like, “I feel safe around you,” will boost his ego and hopefully make him want to be your boyfriend so he can protect you even more. 

#19 Invite Him To A Wedding

Inviting someone to a wedding is a big deal because it’s typically a couples event.

When you ask someone to accompany you to a wedding, you’re saying, “I can see myself being in a relationship with you.”

If he agrees, you’re halfway there, and if the vibes are right at the wedding, ask him to be your boyfriend. 

#20 Buy Him A Gift

Don’t buy him a gift out of the blue, wait for an event like his birthday, or he has something to celebrate like passing his exams.

Make sure you wrap the gift up in a box and place a note saying, “Will you be my boyfriend?”

When he opens the present, he’ll first see the note. Please pay close attention to his facial expression when he reads it; it will tell you everything you need to know.

At that moment, he’ll either say, ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or ‘I’ll think about it.’

If he says ‘no,’ you can worm your way out of the embarrassment by saying, “Oh my goodness, that note wasn’t meant for you.

I put it in the wrong box; how embarrassing.” Then continue on as normal. 

How To Ask Someone To Be Your Boyfriend Over Text

Because you can’t see his reaction, asking someone to be your boyfriend via text is risky.

Here are three ways to ask your guy friend to be your boyfriend over text, though it can still be done: Wait for a congratulatory moment, use humor, and use proper language.

1 Test The Waters

When speaking to the guy you like over text, ask him questions about relationships. Don’t make it seem like you’re interrogating him.

Instead, every so often, drop a comment about how you feel about relationships and see how he responds.

If he responds positively to one of the comments, take it a step further. For example, ask him, “If you were going to take a girlfriend to see a film, which film would he take her to see and why.”

A question like this will open the door to discussing how he treats his girlfriends. When you feel the time is right, ask him out. 

2 Use Humor

Only use humor if you know he finds you funny, or it could backfire on you. Humor is always good when it comes to serious topics.

Let’s face it, your reputation is on the line if he says no. You need to be able to look him in the eye again if he rejects you.

Making a joke out of it is a good way to keep things light, and if you don’t get the response you were hoping for, you can brush it off as a joke.

You could say something like, “Are you hungry? I’ve just ordered take-out for my boyfriend and me.

Would you like to come over and help me eat it?” Or, “I’ve been meaning to ask you to be my boyfriend for a while, but I’ve been super busy reorganizing my kitchen cabinets.”  

3 Use Proper Language

People no longer have normal conversations in the digital era we’re currently living in. Text messages are spoken in code, and if you’re not down with the lingo, you won’t understand what the person on the other end of the line is about.

Even if you talk that way with your guy friend, you want to ensure that your words aren’t taken out of context. Therefore, use proper language to ensure you’re both on the same page. 

4 Wait For A Congratulatory Moment

Because it’s normal to praise someone when they’ve accomplished something noteworthy, compliments are a great way to ask someone out over text.

There’s no longer any need to be scared, so you can keep it casual by saying something like. I’m so super proud of you. You already have a lot of accomplishments, would you like to add being my boyfriend?”

Final Thoughts

Okay, now that you know twenty cute ways to ask a guy to be your boyfriend, it’s time to use some of them.

When you do it, make sure you look super hot so he can’t help but say yes.

The desperate look isn’t cute, so remember to play it cool. To think he’s the luckiest guy in the world to have someone like you by his side is what you need.

Do not be cocky, but show him that you are sure of yourself in a way that lets him know you could have any guy you want.

This time, though, you pick him! You should also be ready for being turned down because he might say no.

Sometimes it’s not that he doesn’t like you, but that he’s not ready for a relationship.

It’s okay to not take that personally if it happens. Just move on with your life. Finally, I wish you the best of luck when you ask a guy to be your boyfriend.
