Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
I fancy this guy but hes in yr 10 and im in yr 8. he used to be best friends with my brother and i asked my brother wat he wud do if i went out with one of his mates n he said hed beat them up. but also the guy i fancy hangs around with sum1 in my class so he'll tease me if he finds out. I really like the guy but im afraid he wont like me. Ive already been humiliated a few times by asking sum1 out n i dont want it to happen again. my friends dont know yet n ive read that to ask them out u shud become friends with them 1st but i dont know how to come about being friends with him cos i just say hi to him wen i c him n thats about it. wat should i do?
You are doing the right thing by saying hi to him. Continue to do that, say "Hi, [name]" and give him a big smile. Once you have him saying hi to you and smiling back then find something very simple to say that will only take about five seconds. Like say "Hi, [name], how are you doing" and when he says "Fine" then say "Great" and keep on walking.
As time goes by, increase the conversation and he might get the idea to call you or ask you out. You've been embarrassed before by asking a guy out, but you could also do that when you are ready.
