How do I Ask Her Out?

Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
Hi, I'm an average guy in his freshman year. There's a girl I worked on a project with in my A Level English class. She's really nice and smart, and I really am starting to like her. I talk to her a little but I don't think I really know her well enough to ask her out. Also, I've never really asked someone out without it at least being partially set up, and I think I want to.

I'm kind of shy but have read most of your tips. I don't think I should ask her out before the dance because I already promised one of my friends I'd go with them as friends. We have a lot of the same interests, because we're both good with computers. Anyway, I think she is kind of shy too, but when I had nobody to peer edit my paper with she agreed to do it without being asked. This is taking on a lot of extra work, since she already had done one.

Anyway, she seems kind of shy too, but I really am thinking of asking her out once I get to know her just a little bit better. Please give me some advice!! Thank you!! Advice
I have a whole how-to on building up a relationship to the point of dating -

you need to work on the friendship and develop it. The best relationships are between people who are great friends and who trust and respect each other. So build up that connection with her and the rest will develop naturally. There's no need to rush!
