Re: What are key steps to ask her to a date?
Liking the advise given by dalton. My opinion on this is that you never, ever make asking a girl out a big deal whether you're new or a veteran. One reason for this is because women are very intuitive when it comes to nerves and when you portray that asking a girl out is a big deal it will lead to you showing nerves and in her eyes WEAKNESS. Just make it casual like your asking one of your buddies out for a game of pool or watch some sports, get yourself in that mindset.
It is your reality and no one should be bigger than your own centre of gravity, that is how you lose your power. Just remember there are plenty more women out there and you are playing a mere game, the trick to remember is that everytime you get rejected you can just respawn and try again. I have been here for 4 months and I'm 19, only a year younger than you but before I started reading and practising the artistry of pick up I was so nervous when it came to asking for a number or a date but now it's almost bread and butter to me.
Best thing to do when you do ask her out is to have a light conversation about just stuff, don't dwell, keep things flowing and just mention it in a sentence like "Listen, we have been talking for a bit but there's something about you that I just can't put my finger on. I think we should go for a drink/coffee/(anything cool that's casual) on (day you are not busy)" She should comply unless she's busy on that day then say calmly (in a Christian Grey way) "Ok, then what day is good for you". It should work.
Alternatively what you could do is to find a really nice place around town like a slightly eccentric cafe and drop it in the conversation with "Have you ever been to place X?" she will most likely say no, you tease with "Oh my god, where is your life?! it is incredible, they have these really awesome cakes and the best tea ever! Tell you what, I will take you there if you promise not to embarrass me, deal?" Now what I have just done there is teased her twice just for a date, all must be said with enthusiasm and with a smile.
I have used both of these things (with tweaks and naturalisations to them) and they have both got me dates multiple times within the last 4 months. These are just things I would do if I where in your shoes. Good luck and happy gaming pal!
