...except that I hardly talk to him and can't seem to work up the nerve to do so. We're both seniors in high school, and I'd like to have at least one boyfriend before I graduate. I know this sounds lame, but I really have no confidence whatever in this area of my life -_-' (and I'm known for being confident, even arrogant, in other areas) He's a nice guy, and he's certainly easy enough to look at (not model material, mind you, but pleasant enough in his own way), but I just can't seem to bring myself to talk to him. I only see him maybe once or twice a day between classes, so there's no time to have a real conversation. Oh, and we aren't in the same clubs and there's no way I could join the ones he's in; the ones I'm in meet the same days.
how 'bout trying to get more information about him? maybe from his friends that u know?
How about refocusing your goals? it sounds like you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself, your goal when talking to him shouldn't be to make him your boyfriend or to impress him but just to get to know him better. So maybe ease up a little? it might make talking to him a lot simpler.
Ask a girl who is good at this sort of thing and has no reason to try to sabotage you.
Thanks guys, sorry it took me so long to reply. (my ID may have changed, FYI)
As to what >>3 said, I'd say that that pretty much has always been my problem. I could hardly talk to the last guy I liked, but after I decided to chill out on the romantic aspect, I had no problems talking to him. Of course, the fact that he had a steady girlfriend certainly hurried me along my way...
I would go for the first option, finding any plausible excuse to avoid facing him. The solution? Just go for it. One thig is certain, if you don't do anything, it won't happen.
For instance: which clubs is he in? I bet it wuld be easy to start a conversation based on that. Let us know, and we'll start from there,...
He's really only in band, but they're taking a break for awhile, as their last major competition for this semester was last week. I don't think he's in anything else.
When passing him in the halls, try and make eye contact and smile. This shows that you're interested in him. Unless you don't really want him to know yet. But I say go for it OP!! XD
Well, I'm not sure whether I want him to know just yet... I'd rather get to know him better first. I will try though, thanks ^^
