Girl at School
 
There's a girl at my school that I like. She's a Sophomore, which would make her a year older than me. I only met her this year and we only have one class together, so I don't really know her, but I used to talk to her in that class everyday. Now we don't really talk because she is in a different "group" (group meaning people you sit with and help each other with your homework; my geometry teacher has issues just to let you know). How do I become a better friend and get to know her more. Do I just start saying "hi" in the hallway and take it from there. I don't want to sound like an idiot and act like I'm obsessing over her. But I like her and I want to be her friend so I can take it from there.

try talking to her again and ask her out. that's the only way :phone:

I can't just ask her out. I barely know her. The chances of her liking me as of now, are remote. I have to get her to like me, but I'm not real good at that. I don't know what would make her like me. She's very smart and take my word for it, she is really hot. She is really sweet and has never said anything nasty to me. She seems comfortable talking to me, but that could be because she doesn't feel the way I do. Anyway, thanks. I wish it were that simple to just ask her out.

you have a class with her...run up to her after you do something in class one day (test, quiz, or anything out of the ordinary) and ask her something about it that's light and general-conversation oriented. then you can mix in personal details..reintroduce yourself or whatever....open the lines of communication.

Ryan's pro. I would take this advice. It's usually what I would do in this situation.

I'm not too sure about the random "hello"s in the hallway. My friend tried this last year with teh girls he liked and it didn't go over so well. Sometimes you can come off as weird. I'd say hello to her if you were the only ones in the hallway, but when it's in between periods, it can seem desperate.

Something that has worked for me in the past and I still use is: *smiles and winks*.
Smile at her, every time you pass her, not a huge smile just a subtle one, we don’t want her to think that you are making fun of her!
Smile at her every time you get eye contact and even wink at her if you get the chance. I don’t mean the "big guy who thinks he can get everyone" wink!
Just a subtle "hello there" wink in combination with a nice smile.
Say "hi" to her if she is alone, most girls like guys who take the initiative!
I mean it shouldn’t really be a problem, because you already chatted with her.
Try to be as natural as possible, try to feel secure, it will make you look secure.
The whole idea behind this technique is to give the girl a warm secure feeling.
That's of course if you are after a girl who wants a nice boyfriend because not all girls want a nice one!
Strange but true :icon_err:

Anyway good luck, and keep us informed :D

Have Confidence!
 
That is the best piece of advice that I can give you, have confidence in yourself and when you see her strike up a conversation,it's best if you talk to her when she is on her own that way you don't have to be nervous about talking to her in front of her friends, start chatting and take it from there!
Good Luck

You can always try and get to know her friends.

yes, you dont force the first hello unless you first lock eyes or something.
only do it if there's something to first talk about and break the ice, like something big going on in that class or whatever other little high school gossip that might be floating around.

I don't have the best of luck with women so im not going to pretend to give you awesome advice. But what has worked for me once or twice is in class creat a situation to be near her and be like o hey "her name" then go i haven't talked to you since what ever class and then try to continue from there. Good luck dude. And don't just don't do it other wise you will hate yourself believe me i have don't that so many times before. :icon_err:

Ryan seems to be giving great advice. As Jacoby said, "Ryan's a pro". I'd definitely follow his advice.

Dyce_Blue 30-12-2004 08:46 PM

hmm...
 
Just don't let her take you down a destructive path of paralyzing self-doubt and schizophrenic paranoia. I have known girls to do that...

otherwise, good luck. ;)

Lmao. Yep. Ryan's a pro with the ladies, all right. :icon_err:

No, in all actuality, Ryan's advice was good. Just find something general and school related to chat to her about and move on up from there.

i'll openly admit it's much easier to give someone good advice than follow someone's good advice. as the cliche goes, easier said than done.

Ask her for some advice about improving something about you. Most girls I know love to give advice. Then in a month give her flowers and candy for valentines day.

SimplyKnightley 03-01-2005 01:00 AM

any update? u talk to her yet?

breathein 03-01-2005 04:04 AM

Just be calm
 
Just be calm, conversation, and read her body language to tell if she is uncomfortable or not talk, and be confident :)
