Hi everyone. I'm 20, really shy. There's a girl I see at least once everyday on my way to or coming from class, she's really cute, she looks like she'd be really easy to talk to ( I know it's weird to hear a guy say cute ). I really want to talk to her, but I get nervous and lock-up . Not sure how to really talk to her because she's more and likely going and coming from class too.
I don't have a problem meeting new people to practice in class because everyone has something incommon and once the conversation get going I can make it flow. But time is limited when your passing by someone. I don't want it to be creepy and time is limited like I said. So I want to try to make a quick but real good impression without her thinking im a creep or does he do this to every girl.

Start simple. Make eye contact. Smile. Then say hello. You might do this a few days in a row so she start to notice you. it'll also warm you up to actually talking to her. Tkaing baby steps. It's okay.
Then when you work up the courage, say something other than hello. Compliment her sweater or something. Then introduce yourself. Go from there.
i think people tend to lock up when they get overwhelmed by the possibilities, when they process it all in their heads at once, and then freak out. Don't fixate on that. You don't have to ask her hand in marriage tonight. Just take it piece by piece. Smile. Hello. Nice sweater. My name is...
