Willst du mit mir gehen?
Explanation: It really depends on the context - my suggestion is widely used in verbal communications, and could therefore also be appropriate in less formal ways of communicating, such as e-mails. On a personal note, asking the question as straightforward as this might not exactly be the most original of ways...
Own experience (albeit many years ago...*g*)

either of the above
Explanation: Kim's translation is a direct translation:
do you want to be my girlfriend = willst du meine Freundin sein
do you want to go out with me =
willst du mit mir gehen
Both sentences serve the same purpose.
Good luck ! :-)
