I'm quite taken with her. I don't talk to many girls to be honest. You could describe me as shy, quiet boy who minds his studies. Anyway, none of this really matters. I'm quite a coward actually. As Gandhi once said "A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave." So yea. I've never approached her before; she's most likely unaware of my existence as a human being. Point is: how do I approach her? What do I say? I know I should say "hello," or something, but reality is I don't see her very often. I maybe pass her in the hall, or see her walking to her next class, but that's it. I don't have time to get to know her during the school day. Any help would be appreciated. I thank you in advance.
Ask her a question about something she is wearing.
ah the good ol' "nice shoes, wanna fuck?" approach.
...That never works. Ever...Ok, so it might sometimes, but that's beside the point.
it works, but be weary of the girls it works on =P
Pretty simple... Tell her you love her and want to be with her forever and ever and then threaten to kill yourself if she says no.
In all seriousness, though, I've been there too, plenty of times. What you have to do is don't just walk up to her one day and randomly ask her out on a "date" or at least don't call it a date. Ask her if she would like to have lunch with you on a Saturday or something. If she says yes, great. Then I'll help you with what to do and how to talk to her at the said event. If she says she is busy, wait a week or two and then ask again. If she says she is busy twice in a row, she probably doesn't want to do it. If you do end up doing something with her, try to set a date for another hangout before you go your separate ways. After a couple of those you should probably be able to tell whether or not she is interested.
Ah the advice in this thread, be it comical or serious, is awesome. And I thank everyone for helping me out here.
So did you make a move yet?
Nope. I sort of want to wait until prom's over before I try and make a move since I didn't sign up to go.
haha, generally that would be a good excuse... but, you would e surprised how little talking can get you into (and out of) a lot of things. I'm sure that if you loosely explained your situation to someone at the top (or near the top) of the food chain involving the prom issue, you could probably talk you and your date into a spot. Prom would be a great opportunity!
Well, if I were to be dating this girl, I wouldn't be too proud to beg for a spot in prom, if I do talk to her before prom, I'll see what I can do. But then I've gotta worry about renting a tuxedo. Any suggestions on that would be greatly appreciated. And good job catching me in my excuse haha. Even I thought it was a pretty lame excuse.
Pretty much whenever you come up with an excuse, tell yourself it's bullshit and just go for it. Nothing ever happens if you don't go for it. I've gotten a lot better at throwing out excuses, and it saves me a lot of headache wondering whether or not she's interested. Even if she's not interested, at least you know and you can stop worrying about it.
Nothing ever happens if you don't go for it.
Exactly. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. Go for it Ryan.
