The fact that you "get it" - the parts about things which used to be considered romantic now being considered creepy/awkward, etc., is a solid
indicator that, first off, you're not creepy lol.
As far as how it would be taken, I think most women would love a poem written for them - it would be unexpected and flattering.
You probably first need to have at least some degree of "buy-in" the new-old-fashioned way. In other words, it's not a "first move." She needs to at
least be leaning towards, if not fully "interested" or it's going to taken as awkward, possibly creepy. It seems strange to say, but I feel like it's
accurate in today's world - without interest and openness (some degree of having already gotten to know each other), it may seem presumtive and even
invasive (i.e. "You don't know
me...") If you haven't gotten to know her on a personal level, it will seem as though you're interested in who
you think she is, not necessarily who she actually
So that said, I think if you have that initial "buy-in" - you've been talking, etc., and maybe the next step would typically be to ask for a date,
this would be the time to give her the poem. At this point, she's interested in you (at least to some degree), and the poem will show her that you're
thinking of her, "from the heart."
