When this moment arrives, you just gotta take the initiative and start a conversation, no matter how painful and embarassing it may seem. It's going to be a lot more painful in the long run if you let it pass by.

After this first step it will be easier to build a "friendship" and then eventually ask her out. Be careful not to be too nice so she ends up seeing you as a friend only.
Well I tried to 'stalk' her today but I couldn't even find her in the first place.

How can I not be too nice though? I mean what do I have to do to not seem too nice?

I only have 2 other chances to see her again now before my exams. If I don't see her then the next time I would see her would be mid June and even then I'm questioning whether I want to go back after my exams, so maybe never even see her again. We do study in the same library but I'm only in that library for around 20 minutes on Monday and about 2 hours on Wednesday while she's there.

I don't see her as a monster but more of a princess, so it's hard as I don't feel I'm worthy enough to even talk to her. That's a nice way of putting the situation, just the last girl I told I liked at Uni didn't like me back and people took the piss and now she doesn't even talk to me, don't want the same happening here.

You joker. But I guess I'll follow your ways.

Don't go to the same parties she goes to, and none of my/our friends seem to either.

You might never know her thoughts, but you can work on understanding yours.
Question your own feelings/thoughts first. When you're clear about what you want with yourself, things have a tendency of falling into place and being much easier.

Also, since you have exams coming up, why don't you ask her to study together? There are few things that bring people closer together than a shared stressful experience, and exams definitely fit into that category.
Maybe ask her opinion about a problem that you genuinely don't understand from your studying material. If she gets it, ask her to explain it to you, if she doesn't, laugh about it together. Either way, you can ask her if she wants to study together some time.
Well I guess from getting to know things about her I just somehow realise she's just my perfect girl, she's beautiful, has the same background and what not but maybe it's more of just wanting to get to know her if anything, I don't even know because I've never felt so connected to someone before without knowing them.

Well the next time I'll probably see her is next week and then I would only have a few days more to study, so I guess it might be kind of weird to her leaving it so late. But yeah will definitely try asking her a problem or something and see if she can help me.

Thanks so much guys.

Hmmm... so you're not as 'badass' in real life as you like to depict yourself on the 'netz.

Jase, as said so many times before - you're not even close to being 'pathetic'.

as for attracting the right ladies, well where do I start?
1) Depends on what you want.
A one-nighter? Do whatever you please.
A serious relationship? Well.. what are her interests, what are her hobbies, what kind of type of person is she? Sort that out before making any further move.

2) In contrary to popular belief, sensible ladies are NOT impressed by 'big talk', you rolling your muscles about, bragging about your fantastic job, fantastic investments or anything the like.
It's all about your personality, and whether it matches with hers - or no. Be honest, be friendly, be courtagious and understanding - without hiding your personal opinions on matters.
Oh. DO NOT EVER STALK anyone! It pisses off the ladies faster than anyone would even be possible to imagine.

Well uhm - that's how it worked with the two guys I've allowed into my personal life for something like ... 20 years.

Good luck, Jase!

i think that your next step should be purchasing a couple of prostitutes for a bit of the old in-and-out...

i don't know if it will help you with your current problem, i just feel it is something you should do...

i would also hasten to add that voting with your wallet in this fashion is a vote for your local economy...

hope this helps

i'm studying for the human anatomy exam and i struggling to find the g spot. how about we study together to find it. a live human specimen would be appropriate for an accurate study, do you volunteer under scientific conditions?

Default Re: Need Help With This Girl...

The good news is you got a lot in your favour. Shes single. You have a repor with her friends. Thats about as good as its going to get.

I was in a similar situation in high school, I did end up asking the girl out, even though I knew she probably had a bf. Just so I could get into her life, crazy huh. Was mad crazy looking for chances though. Getting them alone in a school setting is almost impossible. And doing it infront of their friends just isnt going to work.

So maybe stalk to get that opportunity. Just dont get caught Your unlikely to get her alone in the limited chances you have left unfortunately if you dont.

The best advice I could give is 2 things.

1, it really wont seem as hard as you thought once youve done it. Youll wonder what all the fuss was about. And a huge weight will be off your shoulders. Just keep reminding yourself of that.

2. Its impossible to follow the advice of bring her down to the level where shes just a girl, we both know that. But you have to bring her down somewhat. Dont put her on a pedostool. Truth is, we both know, even if she did go out with you, relationships where the guy worships the ground the princess walks on, never work out. They dont want an asshole but they want a man - remember that.

So bring her down a little. Shes always going to be your princess - but shes a human. Remember that. Despite the sun shining out of her butt, she could also be the worlds biggest bitch deep down too, and then youd be releived you found out and didnt waste any more time.

Oh, maybe write to her if you cant talk? Seems a bit corny but if you wrote a poem or something it might capture her heart. Also the facebook factor, you could always add her and talk on there..just make it out like your not doing it just cause your too chicken to talk to her. Or you could do the FB thing after a short convo in person, its easier to get all this out online, though it would be better coming from you face to face.

Hope this helps.

All the chips are in your favour. Just make it work. Your running out of time. Youll probably chicken out a few times too, so factor that in! If you only got a couple chances left, dont piss around!

Default Re: Need Help With This Girl...

Don't take too close to your heart this advice about 'bringing a girl down a little'. Many guys think that way, but if it's forced and not a genuine, natural behavior, it can turn out to be a real disaster. Sometimes (most of times) this bringing down thing is being perceived as rudeness or mischievousness. It often makes the girl think that the guy who acts like that doesn't really care (or simply that he's a sh*thead). Good luck.
