    So, there's this new girl at my school that I think I like, but I'm too shy to talk to her. Through a tiny bit of introduction, I found out her name is Mindy (which will be easy for me to remember, Nanu Nanu), and she wen't to the rival school to my middle school. Basically, I am way too nervous to talk to her. What are some ways I could approach this?

    Let me guess, "Nanu Nanu" would not be a good pickup line? :rolleyes:

    Well, for starters, do NOT mention anything about computers or electronics or technology of any sort.

    You could open up by talking about your addiction to Anime, how you have worked out Pi to the 700th digit without a computer, and how you don't think you'll ever leave your parents house.

    No? Not a good idea? Oh, ok.

    Find out some things she likes doing - any activities in school perhaps? See if you can end up doing the same activities..

    Are you guys in the same class? Ask her about homework or pretend you don't understand something about what the teacher said, after class, in the library or during lunch.

    Be friendly, be yourself. It works for me.

    Ease into a relationship with her. Don't just ask her off the bat if you haven't talked to her in 3000 years or ever. At the same time don't become good friends and then ask because thats creepy and backfires a lot.

    one thing you could do is introduce yourself. tell her your name; let her know you exist.

    That works too, its better though if SHE needs the help and you can help her. I like this approach.

    If you have had a short introduction, just smile every time you see her and try to get her eye. You may be in a queue with her behind you or front, and say, hi, mindy is it? ... Hi I'm ghall, etc etc

    Hop into a conversation she is having with someone with a witty, yet cute remark.

    Smile gently, and wait for her to say something cute back.
    Dont let it be awkward in any way. Just play around until you get somewhere.
    Ask her if she wants to get coffee with you after school. If not, dont feel regected. There could be a number of reasons. If so, just be cute, be yourself, and dont forget to be happy. Never point out negative things, never tell her what you "hate" or "dont like" that can trigger an akward moment. Always listen to what she has to say. You never cut a girl off in conversation

    Just be sweet. :)

    don't rush it. I know from experience that rushing it overwhelms girls, and they end up avoiding you like the plague.

    I think the best thing you can do is tell yourself you and her are just mates, and treat it like that for a little while. If you become close mates, she might want to spend time around you, so you will have it easy.

    Once you get up to senior school (years 11 and 12 here), you will find relationships do get in the way, and are best kept for the school breaks.

    But this is just my experience; in the end, you have to live your own life. Do what you think is right, and learn from the outcome, whether it be positive or negative. you only have around 80 years on this planet. enjoi it :)

    If you can find something that you two have in common that's a natural conversation starter. Better yet if you two share a class or after-school activity - that way you have a reason to be talking to her on a regular basis.

    It also helps if you have lots and lots of money. It's a scientific fact that women are way more attracted to you if you have a big phat wallet. :apple:

    No, it wouldn't be. Instead, go with "Hey babe, they call me Mork" :cool:

    Go up to her and say hi. Pretend you are like on a date. Say good commenting stuff like: I like your hair, you are hot.

    yes, frighten her away. that'll work. :rolleyes:

    i agree with the others who have said just be you...say hello when you're around, smile, make chit-chat about things so you can find out more about her, and she about you. don't rush, don't go all weird....just be you. :)

    as a female (who was in high school almost a decade ago but not too old to remember the HS dating scene!) being yourself and being cool and calm is the way to impress 75% of the time.

    unless the girl likes jerks...then you're out of luck. :p

    Whew.. that was a time killer...

    "Yo baby, you be my Dairy Queen, I'll be your Burger King, you treat me right, and I'll do it your way."

    Or being yourself works too. Oh and finding a topic of similar interest is a great way to initiate a conversation.
