It’s possible to do, though it’s probably not the best method. Messaging on Facebook is decent for getting to know basic details about someone, but it comes with a lot of problems. If Facebook doesn’t work out for you, try an online dating service.
Thus, we recommend that you use any other available method at your disposal to ask a girl out that you have interest in.
Take a look at her recent photos to see what she’s done lately.
Is there back-and-forth conversation or do you tend to get one-word answers like “Yeah” and “OK”?
Has she expressed any interest in you or does it seem like she’s simply putting up with you? If you’ve had a great time talking with this girl and feel like she’d be receptive to meeting up, give it a try.
Should you sense an interest, you can try asking her out via a phone call instead of Facebook, which should have better results.
Norah, I’ve really enjoyed chatting with you over these past few weeks and I’d love to hang out in person if you’d be up for it.
You don’t want to ask her to go up to your grandparents’ cabin in the woods with you for a weekend — that’s creepy.
