If you feel like the pressure is on, don’t worry, that is how you should feel. You want everything to go perfectly while you ask her out or else there’s a chance she might say no and you don’t want that to happen. Instead of being generic and simply asking her out, here are 25 cute ways to ask a girl to be your girlfriend. These are some really great ways to sweep her off her feet while you ask her to be your girlfriend.
1Make it a treasure hunt
A cute way you can ask a girl out is by leaving her clues to get to you. With every clue that you give her, make sure it’s something that has a significant meaning behind it whether it’s a location where you first met or where you had your first kiss. This will make her reminisce on the great memories with you. Of course, her last destination will be finding you and that’s when you can ask her to be your girlfriend.
2Ask her with her favorite drink
There are many places, especially coffee shops, that ask for your name. You can take her on a date there and get cozy with one another. Instead of putting her name on her cup, you can ask the barista to write out the question on the cup. You can either immediately show her or let time pass and show her your appreciation for her. Before she throws the cup away, make sure she reads it and you’ll get your answer right there.
3Play her a song
Serenading a girl can never go wrong on any occasion! In this case, it will be so romantic for you to write a song about her and the journey you both had along the way. Even if you aren’t the greatest singer, trust me, she will appreciate the effort you put in to create a personal song just for her. Since you’ll already have her on cloud nine, the perfect way to finish the song is to ask her to be your girlfriend.
If you’re not the type of guy to beat around the bush, then this is the ideal way to ask a girl out. You can get your shirt customized by someone and have her name and question written out, or if you want to make it unique, you can do it yourself. I’m sure she will love the effort you put into making the shirt much more! With the shirt, make sure you have something covering it, so she doesn’t see it immediately. When you have reached your destination and feel that the timing is right, all you have to do is unzip your jacket.
5Get help from other people
There’s nothing sweeter than selecting the people she most cares about to be a part of a special day for the both of you. She will notice that you pay attention to who is a huge part of her life and that will make her melt even more. You can combine the idea of the t-shirt proposal and have them each wear a shirt that has the question written out. Or you can have people at each station if you decide to do a treasure hunt. They could be there to deliver each clue to her. Either way, it’s a cute way to get people she cares about involved as well.
6Pop the question
Using balloons can never go wrong! It’s a fun and extravagant way to get her attention. There are a few ways you can use balloons while asking a girl out. You can either strap balloons to her car or house with the question written out right next to the balloons. You can also make her pop her way to the question. By that I mean, you can have the question written on a pasteboard and cover it with balloons. That way, she’ll have to pop all the balloons to read the message.
7Make it a thinking game
You will have to get creative with this. Instead of directly asking her to be your girlfriend, you have to create little messages where she will have to fill in the words. You can create a story of how you met, and she will have to figure out what you want to say. You can also make a questionnaire and at the end ask if she would want to be your girlfriend.
8Take it to the highway
If you want the whole world to know then, this is the best way to ask a girl out. It takes a lot of work but your girl will adore the effort you put in by making it public! You can either ask her through a billboard – basically, you have to figure out a way to have the question written out and put there. Or to keep it more simple and affordable, you can also write the question out and hang it on a bridge. While you’re both driving to your destination, drive where you hung the question. It’ll be spontaneous and unpredictable!
9Bring a pet along
Pets just make any situation better and much cuter than it needs to be. Use her favorite animal, or if she has a pet, you can use it as well, and strap the question around its neck. You can also customize a shirt for the pet. While she goes to pet it, she can see the question.
10Put it on a big screen
Whether you’re at the movies or a sporting event, if you are feeling bold, this is the best way to go. Before the movie starts, you can ask if you can have a personal message written out on the screen asking her the question. You can also do it after the movie is over. When everyone leaves, you both can stay and talk for a while then slowly have the question pop on the screen. For a sporting event, ask her during the intermission and make sure the camera is on her!
11Bake your way to her heart
Girls love sweets and especially if someone she cares about makes it themselves. Show her your skills while also asking her to be your girlfriend. You can make it a date where you cook for her and at the end, personalize the sweets with the question on top.

Whether it’s hiking, painting, or taking a stroll around the city, joining her while make her realize she has a person who wants to join her in her hobbies. While you are out and the timing is right, nothing should stop you from asking her to be your girlfriend.
13Unscramble the words
You can play another game with her – get words put on magnets and put them on a refrigerator. While both of you are cozy in your space, test her and put random words out and see if she can figure out the sentence you are trying to say. After a few rounds, put words that ask her the question.
14Write it out
If it’s winter when you plan on asking a girl out, there’s no cuter way than asking her when it’s snowing. Plan a date to go sledding and play in the snow together. When you’re both laying there, get up and write it in the snow. After, ask her to get up and read the message. If it’s the summer season, go back to your childhood and use some chalk. Get creative on the streets and create a colorful image with the question in the middle.
Before making her your girlfriend, make her a spy. Leave a message telling you she has to meet you somewhere. Once she gets to her destination, someone will hand her a recording of your voice asking her if she’s willing to accept her mission. Of course, her mission will be to be your girlfriend. She then has to signal if she will accept or decline. This will give her a preview of how adventurous you are!
16Light up a room
If you want to be romantic then this is the way to go. You have to buy a bunch of tea light candles and light up a pathway for her to walk through. As she walks through them, the pathway will lead to you. You can stand there with a rose or a small gift in your hands and ask her to be your girlfriend. She will definitely swoon into your arms.
17Make her a video
If you like to document your life then pay full attention! As you spend time with her and can see her being your girlfriend, you can start this video early. While you go on dates or hanging out together, record special moments. When you go to put the video together, you will have memories of you two from the very beginning. You can conclude the video with the question. This is a great memory for her to keep of you two.
18Have it written in the air
There are many planes that have messages attached to them as they fly, just take a look at them next time you’re at the beach. As both of you walk down the shore, you can embrace the calmness of the environment and even have a little date there too. As the sun begins to set, have a plane fly over both of you with the question. There’s no way she can say no!
19Get some flowers
You can always deliver a girl some flowers but there’s nothing like selecting each flower and delivering them yourself. Go to a flower shop and customize a bouquet of her favorite flowers. When you go to see her, hand them to her and leave a special note in them. The note will obviously have the question written inside of it. This will be a jaw-dropping moment for her.
20Use a crossword puzzle
If your girl likes to play games then you should create a crossword puzzle for her. It may take some time but the fact that you thought about her hobbies, will be a bonus. Create a crossword puzzle that eventually spells out “will you be my girlfriend?” By the time she’s done, she’ll be pleasantly surprised!
21Let the teddy bear speak
To the timid guys, this can be a good idea for you. Instead of directly asking a girl out, you can let a teddy bear do it for you! You will have to go out and buy a teddy bear for her. With that, you can have a recording of your voice asking her if she wants to be your girlfriend and put it inside the teddy bear. So when you’re ready to ask her, you can give her the teddy bear and let her give it a good swear. Right when she does it, the recording will go off.
22Have a candlelit dinner
There’s nothing more romantic than looking into the eyes of your future girlfriend over a candlelit dinner. The mood is automatically set because of the dark and romantic setting and with food, there’s nothing that can make a girl happier. The only thing missing is for you to ask her to be your girlfriend! This way can never go wrong.
23Give her a gift
The best gift would be something small, like a piece of jewelry, for this idea. Make sure it’s something that symbolizes who she is because that will reassure her that you know who she is. Wrap up the gift in a small box and when she opens it, the bottom of the lid will have the question. Not only will she be getting a gift but also a boyfriend!
24Use a sneak attack
Take her to a place that has a photo booth, most likely the movie theater. When both of you are taking pictures, kiss her in the last one. While you kiss her, hold up a sign that has “will you be my girlfriend?”. That way, she’ll be surprised when the picture print out and it’ll be a cute photo of the both of you.
25Kick it old school and ask her on the phone
The one way that can never go wrong is to go back in time. When you’re talking to her on the phone and the conversation flows, remind her how grateful you are to know her. Once that peaceful silence comes along, ask her. It would be the perfect way to fill in the silence.
