How do invite someone over for a bbq without it being weird?

I’ve met this friend online and we caught a couple of times for coffee. Now she is back at work so it is hard to catch up during the week. I wanted to invite her and her hubby/kids for a Saturday bbq at my place, but I am scared it will sound weird?


Got an Answer?

You: "We should catch up again soon!"
Her: "Yeah we really should"
You: "How about a BBQ at mine with the fam?"
Her: "Ew, no. Omg you are such a creep, what a wild and terrible thing to ask"
Lol she will be like sure.. stop stressing.

 Yes I think worst case scenario is "nah we're busy sorry"

 Make it sound really casual! Like "it's BBQ weather again? Thinking of having one on Sat if you guys wanna come? "

Not weird babe, just ask her

 Thanks. I am extremely shy and always scared to look “weird” to people.

My neighbor invited me to one this weekend. We were both out the front and talking and she said "we're having a bbq this weekend if you wanted to come over". I think they're a fantastic way to get together personally, and not weird at all 😊

 Thanks! I am extremely shy so it is always hard for me... I’ll keep it a casual, just like you suggested. Thanks you so much!
