this works for me all the time it may seem random but it's so off topic of dating and sex and everything that it puts the girl at ease like she's not being sized up.
i've been texting a girl for a while that i want to get with and it's always on some serious shit so switched it up randomly (girls think thats handsome). I just asked how she felt about whales. thats all. it would work for any animal that you could go view at a zoo. so ask about whales then propose a whale watching excursion adventure then bing bang boom you got an easy date where you go from there is up to you.
girls typically love animals at least in my experience
