We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their most unique stories about asking someone out (or being asked out). Here are some of the most aww-inspiring stories:
1. This jaw-dropping snapshot:
2. This WIFI connection:
"This guy friend of mine had been kind enough to lend his internet router to me and my two roommates since we didn't have one in our apartment. I thought the gesture was nice, and I also thought he was pretty cute (but he was never going to know that).
One day he came by and asked for the router back, but he also had a brand new one for us! After he left, my roommate and I couldn't find the network that matched (there were about 20 networks listed since it was a large apartment complex). As I'm scrolling through the list of networks my eyes come across one that says 'Rachel, go on a date with me? - Jo' (I'm Rachel, he's Jo). My heart suddenly went through the roof with excitement! I of course told him yes!
His creative method must've worked. We've been married for two and a half years."
3. And this never-ending playlist:
4. 👬 This tactful use of emojis:
"It started of with my bf sending an emoji of a straight couple. Then I was like 'babe, that's the wrong emoji.' So I sent a gay couple emoji and was like '...need a more fitting emoji, like this one." Then, my bf sent a emoji of two guys having a wedding and was like 'How's this?' I nearly flopped off my bed after that. I said yeah, obviously. And that's the story of how we got engaged."

6. This rhyming Romeo:
7. This perfectly planned airport pick-up:
"This past Fall, I was away for a long weekend visiting a friend, and the girl I had been seeing was scheduled to pick me up at the airport when I got home. I texted her that I had landed, and she said she was outside waiting for me.
When I walked out, she was standing by her car, fresh picked wildflowers in her hand, and one of those airport pick-up signs that said 'Girlfriend?' I'm glad to say we are still going strong!"
8. This poetic gesture:
9. This musical number:
10. And the start to this rock solid relationship:
"My boyfriend and I started off very flirty and shy, our time between friendship and relationship was short. I noticed a couple of days before he asked, he was carrying was seemed to be a small rock, and I thought it was just something to occupy him with his ADHD. A couple days later he handed me the rock, which was actually a purple geode he carved into the shape of a heart. I still have it."
11. This sugary sweet treat:

18. And this potentially hot potato:
"I haven't done it yet, I plan to tomorrow, but I plan to put a potato in her locker with 'You're one Hot Potato' written on it and kinda see where it goes and if it works from there. If I don't do that, I'm just going to give her some roses at the end of our school production (her name is Rose) and ask her out then. I think the potato move might work better though, IDK. Thoughts?"
(DO THE POTATO!)
