You've been warned he's a playboy, so I hope you won't be expecting heaps of sympathy from your friends if he breaks your heart. I find it hard to understand why any girl would want to chase a playboy.
Perhaps you like a challenge and like to think he'll be different with you. But you know he probably won't be different, don't you? He's likely to dump you and move onto someone else. Or maybe just move onto someone else while he's still dating you. But if you're determined to ask the playboy on a date, that shouldn't be too difficult.
- Tell him you're interested in seeing a particular movie, and invite him to join you.
- Challenge him to a game of tennis or squash, billiards or pool.
- Suggest a meal or getting a coffee together.
If he's the playboy your friends say he is, he's likely to accept any of those options.
