Original Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
this question has been asked a couple of times before, but my situation is a little different. i'm 18 and in college, and i'm extremely shy (with everyone, but especially girls) and completely inexperienced with the opposite sex. i feel like the only 18 year old left on the planet that has never been on a date or done anything with a girl. i don't talk to girls, and girls don't talk to me, so there is no one to ask out even if i wanted to...with one exception... my best friend is a girl
she is the only girl that has ever talked to me in my entire life. and we've been friends for 3 years now, and as we've gotten closer over the years, i've started to really like her. she doesn't know that i do, and she doesn't have a boyfriend.
the problem is that because of my inexperience, i don't know what to do. i want to ask her out, but i don't know how, or even if it is a good idea in the first place, because i don't want to ruin our friendship, she is the only female contact i've ever had. the other option is that i could ask her to set me up with one of her friends, which she probably would do consdering she knows all about my previous girl troubles, but i don't know how to do that. i'm just an inexperienced guy looking for some advice on what to do?

wait for right moment
If you want to ask someone out just wait til you are ready you will do just fine unless you are the kind of person who isn't liked very much. I was like that but i'm waiting for the right moment since this girl just broke up with me for no reason!
