Of course, none of them have taken me up on it yet...but I'll keep asking. LOL I had one lady say "I don't think your wife would appreciate that!". I told her "You might be surprised. She's actually fine with it." So she said "Well, I don't do wives.". I smiled and said "I can respect that.". And I left it at that. Now, since this conversation, this woman has been a LOT more talkative with me. Not overly so, but more talkative for sure.
So just be more open.
Its cool you are at least to the point of asking someone out though! I don't think I could do that yet for a while. LOL. I'm a total nerd. I just get rambling on about Battle Star Galactica or something. Its ridiculous.
