A lot of people feel shy when it comes to talking with people they might be interested in, and even shyer when it comes to asking them out. Here are some tips to help you prepare:
Think about ways to calm your nerves. Maybe you need to take a few deep breaths. Maybe you need to psyche yourself up with a little pep talk. Try reminding yourself about your positive qualities.
Then, think about some things you have in common with the person you’re interested in. Do you go to the same school? Are you in any of the same classes? Do you know if she likes a certain kind of music you like? Do you have any mutual friends?
Once you’ve identified something you think you have in common or want to talk to her about, try to find a time when you can be alone or have some privacy. You may even want to give her a call or send her an e-mail or text.
Once you’ve gotten comfortable talking, you might want to consider asking her to do something with you that could be fun or interesting, like going to a movie, the park, or a concert. This way, you can have some time to get to know each other.
