Breaking the ice with a girl that I don't get many chances to talk to
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
Yeah, this is one of those questions that you probably get a lot of, but here goes. Well, I am an 18 year old senior in high school, and I have a bit of a crush on a junior. She is in my chemistry class, and my gym class. In Chem, I don't get much of a chance of even saying hi to her. In Gym, it is almost the same thing, except that once and a while she will actually comment on me. I mean, say I caught the ball, and made an out playing whiffle ball or something of that sort, she will say something like "Good job," or if I don't do so well, I get a "nice try." That probably doesn't mean much though, because a couple of other people say the same things to me, but it is a start, I guess. Once and a while I will pass her in the hallway, and sometimes we make eye contact, but not much else happens. I haven't even said "hi" yet. I am not sure what to do, and I have just about, no experience with girls. I really would like to know how I can "break the ice," I guess you can say. The only advice I have gotten so far, is to just comment on her during gym. I could start voicing a hi when we make eye contact in the halls, but I don't know if that will help me get closer to her, to have a conversation with her... Any advice you can give me will be a great help.
You are on the right track.
First off, start saying things to her during gym. Like she does for you. Say, nice play or nice try when she has a play on the ball. Stand near her if you can. She probably likes you at least a little based on what you said.
The next thing you can do is to start greeting her in the hall. Look her in both eyes, say in a clear voice "hi" plus her name, and then give her a big smile. She will be delighted. Everyone likes to be recognized like that.
Simple things like this will make a great difference in a relationship.
Good luck! George
