    well, I'm in LA, but my friend from New York will be in San Francisco in November, and she's going to be there alone, so I'm looking for a friend who could maybe take our her and show her the city.

    Can this be said? How's the punctuation?

    Capitalise or delete the first word.

    The punctuation is correct, but it should be 'take her out' — not 'take our her'.

    Re: well, I'm in LA, but my friend from New York will be in San Francisco in November

    It's grammatically correct but a little wordy. It could be shortened.

    A friend of mine will be in San Francisco in November. I'll be/I am in LA so I'm looking for someone who could perhaps take her out and show her the city.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm pretty sure that not only altruistic males who truly care about strange women in their city would answer an ad like that. But it depends on what you going to do with this sentence. Unfortunately, I can't imagine a context in which it could safely be used.

    It's not an ad. I'm asking a friend to help out.

    What's up, dude?

    My friend Mona will be coming to Frisco in November.

    Is there any chance you could show her the sights and watch over her?

    She's a really nice person, so I want to make sure she has a pleasant and a safe visit.

    Let me know as soon as possible, OK?



    Your L.A. buddy,
