Te gustaria ser mi novia?


Explanation:
It is the same thing, you just check which context is in, like Latin Spanish or European, or other, and make a little variation in style.
My answer is a little more formal, the other choice given "Quieres ser mi novia?" is more forward.

agree  Ltemes: i like your first option. your last one would be for the shy, funny guy who speaks ENGLISH but that would probably lead him nowhere if he needs to say it in Spanish...cheers!

¿Quieres salir conmigo?


Explanation:
If the situation is informal and for a spanish girl, this is the question to ask!!
Informal as in: Let's go out together for a while and we'll see what happens...

agree  Mapi: In Spain this is quite a common way to ask, 'novia' sounds too formal and maybe even a bit scary for most people.

¿Qué haces después de clase?


Explanation:
And many other ways, like "¿Quieres venir conmigo al cine?", "¿Estás libre el domingo?", etc. but never, never, never, at least in Spain, the stuffy and smothering "¿Quieres ser mi novia?".
