It’s normal to feel shy around your crush because you care about what they think. You can start a conversation by finding something you have in common. Are you in the same math class, take the same bus, like the same sports team? You could start a conversation with “Hi, I noticed we’re in the same _____ class. I don’t think we’ve met yet. My name is __________.” Pause and see if she will introduce herself. If not, ask her what her name is then bring up something to keep the conversation going such as: “What do you think about _____________?” (Ex. the homework assignment or how your team is doing). You can’t go wrong if you are sincere, show interest in the other person, make eye contact, are a good listener, are in the moment and not distracted with your phone or something else. When it feels right, you might invite her to join in a group activity like hanging out with friends or going to a sports game.

- I met a girl that I really liked. We had great conversations, and I’m really attracted to her and I can tell she has the same feelings. I feel excited around her, but I don’t know how to talk to her, and now we live far apart. I can’t stop thinking about her and not being with her makes me sad. What should I do?
