OP here...thanks for the support guys, really. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very social guy and I'm good at talking to girls but I've never been in a relationship before so this exactly going to be a cakewalk for me.
Any ideas how I should spark conversation with her? If she was in one of my classes that would be no problem, I would just ask her about a homework assignment or something to start, but this is not the case. Should I just sit down in front of her and nonchalantly introduce myself?
She already knows I'm interested from the card I gave her, so what do you think a shy girl like her would want to hear me say?
I'm on February break this week so I've got a lot of time to think this out, any ideas you guys have would be greatly appreciated.
