there's this guy I like, but we don't we know each other(that's another LONG backstory). I want to talk to him, but I don't know how. I need help. I at least wanna become friends than even date him, if I can just say "Hey, how are you?". I need help though, cause I just can't muster those words. All I can do is look and than QUICKLY look away from him before he notices. *sigh*
I feel ya. I'm shy too, so I won't just say "you need to just talk to him" when I know how hard that is....
..... Best of luck :)
im a guy......and all i can say is that we get shy also :) i feel ya
Im a girl and i honestly feel the same
i'm a guy, and i'll tell you that when a girl that is normally shy comes up to you and starts talking to you, it is one of the best feelings we get:)(at least for me) we like it when girls come up and talk to us. but i will say that i am shy and i couldn't do it for a long time until one day i decided what the heck i have nothing to lose. so i just said how's your day going. and now we're really good friends.
Hope that helps:) blessings!
Start off smile and just walk past him giving him a big and confident smile, you don't even have to say anything. Once this becomes second nature after a week or so tell him goodmorning along with the smile you've been practicing at, do that for about a week or so until you are comfortable speaking in front of him, when you have accomplished both of these things other he will be interested in talking to you or you will finally get to say "Hey, how are you" and from there you two will be talking. I hoped I helped in any possible, but believe when I say a smile is one of the best qualities that nearly every girl possess
A wave, a nod, a smile everymorning as you walk pass him, for 2 weeks maybe more if your school year permits. Overtime with luck and persistance he may take notice of this and talk to you. If not then hopefully by whatever time you set yourself for a simple wave, nod etc. you can muster the courage to smile and say "Good Morning" as you walk by. Eventually these habbits will become habbitual.
Now for the rest of my fellow suffers of social shyness, as I use to be one. I have good news: College, will cure you of a good portion of your social shyness. SO YAY! lol
Do any of your friends know him? (I'm shy too.) If so, maybe get one of them to introduce you two. Does he have any classes with you? Ask casually about homework, crack a joke or so, etc. I've had a lot of occasions in the past where I liked people I didn't really know... but I do suggest you should get to know him before doing so.
Thanks...I need all the luck I can get! :)
Yeah I have friends that know him, and she's "introduced me to him". The guy knows I exsist...thats some good news, but I'm shy. Yeah..I do want to get to know him more. I'd be much more happier if we were friends even if we never got to the "I like you" part. whenever I try to talk to him, the words get "stuck" in my throat. Whenever he's for 5'th period(the class we arent in:including 6'th.) I end up(not tryin to) whispering his name and saying good-bye. Man, I'm so ppittiful. Any last advice maybe?
Just say hi lol im shy to but you can do it i did and me and the guy are now great friends good luck
Try getting his number. Most thing are a lot easier to say over text then in person and youll be able to get to know him and become more comfertable with him without clamming up
i'm super dooper shy, but it helps to do nice things for the person. like there was one crush who had just come back to school after a bout with the flu and i asked how he was and he said he was hungry and i snuck into the cafeteria and asked the cooks for some apples. it was a really thrilling experience because I was putting myself out there for once, but he was really grateful and said i was the nicest person ever. We spent the whole day talking-he later asked me to be his prom date :) TRUE STORY
