The way how to express the dating invitation has been a kind of essential expression in a couple relationship, in this case, in different gender. It is because the dating invitation expression itself may be the initial step to build a further relationship between males and females.Unfortunately, my friends and I sometimes have difficulties in expressing dating invitation in order to show that we attract to someone in different gender.Thus, I am interested in studying more about what the elements that underlie the dating invitation made by males and females and the difference between them. In this study, I analyze the language functions, the types of sentences, and the topic as the theories which are often used by males and females based on their gender differences. After that, I analyze the similar and different ways of making dating invitation between males and females. The data are collected from males? and females? utterances based on the observation. Then, to back up the findings, I also interview several respondents. In conducting this research, I use the qualitative approach to study the dating invitation. In analyzing the data, I present the data into tables and compare them in order to find the similarities and/or differences of the invitation made by males and females.I find out that, in general, males tend to be direct in inviting females for a date by using interrogative. They use social language function.Therefore, their sentences are simple. Meanwhile, females tend to use complex sentence. It is affected by the their conventional style of language, that is more polite and indirect.They use descriptive language function which gives fact that relates to their invitation. In inviting, most of them talk about free time and entertainment.
