If you like a girl, have a crush, or whatever you like to call it, what do you do ? I have, and have friends who have faced the said situation. Here is a small list of steps that can be followed.
Step 1. Ask around, talk to your best friends. Is she committed ? Like, seriously committed ? <With her around, act cool, manage all those butterflies>
Step 2. Available. Great. Now :
a.) if you know each other, find out more reasons to bump into her. Random places. <Now, drop the act cool part, start a bit of complementing, the stuff>
b.) You don't know her directly. Look for a common friend. One of her friends maybe. Or one of her friend's friend is your friend's friend. Or whatever. Renew contacts. Networking is important.
Carry this on long enough to draw attention to the fact that this ain't natural. The worst feeling anyone ever gets is when the other party doesn't realize (or care a damn) that you are alive. Out of sight, out of mind is okay. But do not be a stalker, or over do it. Now that can freak out anybody. Chances gone.
Step 3. VERY Imp. Plan something together, all her friends included. Pay special attention. <Make sure all other guys are clear on your territory. Solve all those issues beforehand. > Make sure that she has a subtle realization of the special treatment. Girls LOVE the cute stuff. Try to do some. And hope it works.
Step 4. Develop trust. The chances of your success/failure will be pretty evident at this stage. Girls are not douche bags (generally no). They understand your intentions. < PS Make sure your intentions are good. Or you're just a perv. :X >
Stage 5. If you think (without the usual delusions ) that you stand a chance, ask her out. If you have been true ( not to say lucky), you might be rewarded for your efforts. Might be.
These steps are not exactly applicable to all of us. And I write from a lot of experience and input gathered from friends. Inputs are welcome, as always.
Ah, yes. Before the post is criticized for being manipulative, realize that this is probably the safest way to approach the said situation. Also, never lose your self respect.
What do you say ?
PS : Very important.
