Thinking of the perfect thing to say to that cute boy who sits next to you in math is tough, and if you’re one of those gals whose got the spring fling in mind rather than factorials than these tips to snag a date are for you!
Be perceptive but don’t overanalyze
You can’t just walk up to a boy and ask him out, you have to get to know him! Introduce yourself next time you’re in the same circle of friends and start chatting about school and interests. See what he likes. Once you get to know him a little better you’ll know if he’s the perfect date for the dance or the perfect buddy to watch an action flick with. But don’t go crazy, chica, he doesn’t need a stalker on his hands. Just ‘cause you want to get to know him doesn’t mean you have to obsess over his every move to see if he likes you.
Respond to his signals
If he catches your eye and smiles, meets you after class or walks with you in the halls and lingers before leaving your side, those are sure signs he’s into you. If you think he’s into you then you’re guaranteed to get a yes when you ask him out, but if you’re not quite sure try a few tests…
The friend test
If you don’t know how he feels but want to ask him out, ask your friends to watch you guys talking next time. Sometimes it takes an outsider’s perspective to pick up on the little things. If your friends say he looked into you, that’s a good sign, and you should go for it.
Test the waters
If you want a date for the weekend and the week is almost over, it’s time to throw out some not so subtle suggestions. Ask him what he’s doing, if he says nothing and smiles then say you’re free too and that you should hang out or catch the new movie that’s playing. If he says he’s busy and seems to dodge the question, than it’s not looking too good, but if he tells you exactly what his plans are, like basketball practice or a family birthday, then he’s interested and he really is busy. Ask when the next time he’s free will be, and if you’re lucky he’ll pick up on your thought and ask you out first!
