Hi , shy girl

I know how you feel how many times I have had a crush on a guy and I always told myslef today is the day I will say hi but every time I went to say hi I would come up with a million excuses in my head of why I shouldn't. I guess that's the problem with girls we tend to overthink things and by the time we get the courage it's to late. As I have gotten a bit older I have realised the best method to deal with this is to look at him as any other guy and just say hi.

PS: you don't know if you don't try

Kind regards

First you need to accept that it’s going to feel weird and awkward. IT does for boys and girls. Introductions don’t get less awkward as you get older, but that awkwardness becomes much easier to deal with. I agree with the other answers: don’t plan this too much. Just say hello and see how responsive he is. If this is a new school, you could always say that you wanted to say hi as you hadn’t met before as you’re new. There’s your conversation starter right there if you’re stuck. Good luck.

I wish you all the very best.

holeymoley agony aunttry not over think things. Just keep it simple, by that I mean "Hi" is perfect. Say that and see where it takes you. When you get a hi back, then you can tell him your name- don't panic if conversation takes a while or at all. Remember boys get just as chicken as girls. Good luck, be brave :)

Start with eye contact, a smile and a nod. There is nothing wrong with smiling/nodding at someone you see every day. Once he starts acknowledging your contact, try just saying "good morning" or something light like "here we are again".
