How do you ask a woman out on a date in German? I.e. "would you like to go out sometime?"

    welcome to German.SE. Please include your own research and where you struggle with it. Jan 20, 2020 at 7:02

    This question is neither about proofreading nor spellchecking or translation of individual texts. How to ask someone out is of upmost general interest and might be the best way to learn German. Where would one research and why shouldn't this be asked before the struggle begins? Closing questions for being off-topic seems to be the new sport. This question makes much more sense than the close votes.

    I voted to reopen. While the question can be interpreted as a translation request, it could equally well be seen as a request for some idiomatic phrases. Compare: german.stackexchange.com/questions/36426/… german.stackexchange.com/questions/2406/… german.stackexchange.com/questions/12031/…

    @DavidVogt: Yes. No. No - absolute no - own attempt or anything by the OP. Not even context to written "e.g." part - so it is even impossible to get the situation / the people to be asked. At least for me there are differences regarding age, sex, wealth/ social milieu. Jan 22, 2020 at 7:56

    @ShegitBrahm My recent impression is that the "no research" card is selectively played against questions by non-native speakers. For instance, no down votes, close votes or negative comments here: german.stackexchange.com/questions/56107/…

Your example literally translated it is "Willst du irgendwann mal mit mir ausgehen?" You could also say: "Wollen wir einmal etwas trinken gehen?", which is "Shall we have a drink one-time?". Or, if you don't have a drink in mind, but something else: "Wollen wir mal etwas miteinander unternehmen?", which is "Would you be up for doing something together sometime?". Good luck!
