a long shot

< Previous | Next >


Spanish - Spain
Watching a TV series I came across the following sentence: "I know it's a long shot, but would you like to have dinner with me tomorrow?"; this is a about a guy asking a woman out just a few minutes after meeting her. Does it mean that it might be too soon, or that maybe he's asking for too much? Thanks.
