School is almost over and I still haven’t worked up the
courage to ask out my crush! I’m determined to do it before the last day, but I
don’t know how. Help!
Wanna know a secret? Setting a deadline for something huge
will force you to actually do what you’re dreading. In this case, your mission
is ask out that cutie you’ve been eyes for ages…before school ends.
Strike up a convo
To avoid your guy labeling you as “that girl I’ve never
talked to before,” get to know the dude first. A flirty smile in the halls with
a friendly, “Hey! How ya doin’?” will get him thinking about who you are…and
where the heck have you been all year! Convince your scaredy-cat brain that
he’s just another friend, and say hi. Deep breath, now go do it!
Nobody is going to listen to you if you’re blushing so
furiously you can’t get a word out, or you’re talking so quickly no one can
understand you. Collect yourself—stare down your reflection if necessary, offer
up a pep talk, pull your shoulders back and plaster on a smile. You’re
fabulous. Why would he say no?
Go for it
Once you’re exchanging pleasantries and he’s flashing you
that gorgeous grin in the halls, it’s time to take things to the next level.
Ask him if he’d like to grab a slice of pizza with you after school to talk
more about your fave b-ball team, or if he could use a study buddy for finals.
Not brave enough to fly solo? Invite him to tagalong on a movie outing with you
and your buds, or secure him an invite to the next co-ed party you guys are
