The very idea of asking your crush out on a date for Valentine's Day is enough to make some people run for the hills.
But, one dating blogger encouraged women to bite the bullet and ask out the person they've had their eye on lately. And, the responses were encouraging. Well, mostly.
Oloni, a UK dating blogger, tweeted a request out to her female followers, instructing them to ask out their crush and send her screenshots of the results.
Ladies, ask the guy you have a crush on to be your Valentine this year & tell him you’d like to go on a date with him. Tweet me a screenshot of his response 😏

One individual used the simple-yet-effective line: "Be my valentine this year, let's go on a date."
Her crush responded saying: "I'm so glad you asked!!" Aww.

Another woman got straight to the point with: "Hey, okay I have a crush on you," she wrote. "Would you like to go on a date with me."
Her crush could scarcely hide their excitement and enthusiasm.
Another woman got more than she bargained for when she sent a casual "do you ming spending the whole of Valentine's dat with me?" text.
"I dnt mind spending d rest of my life with u sweets," replied her crush.

Another crush replied saying he'd been thinking "of many ways to ask" her out.
"Since you did the asking, I'll orchestrate the date," he said.

Not all the responses were encouraging, alas.
One crush replied asking if the date would be "as friends." Uuum, rude.

Another replied saying they "don't do valentines."
Awks. Aw, well. You win some and lose some.
