School is stuffed with tons of opportunities for fresh romance and new bestie crews. But breaking the ice with your fellow students can be tricky. No need to stress! We’ve got the best, awkward-free ways to ace your classroom convos.
The simple smile
Whether you’re looking to snag a new BFF or your crush’s
attention, this li’l move goes a long way. So flash a friendly grin to show
you’re a super nice gal who’s ready to talk.
The classic note-pass
Try out this trick before class starts: scribble a cute joke or a quick hello onto a scrap of notebook paper. Pass it on to share a laugh, and ask a response from your new classroom pen pal. Just make sure free of mean vibes. And don’t do it past the first day, unless you wanna get a detention. Yikes!
The quick question
Next time your teacher’s lesson has you a little lost, ask
your desk neighbor for some help. Instead of struggling solo, you’ll be back on
track—and ready to break the ice with someone new.
The helpful offer
If you’ve got today’s session straight, look for someone who
doesn’t. Find a confused face and let them know you’re here to help. Whether
they accept or not, your offer will seem totally sweet, and they might come
back to ask for help in the future.
The study sesh invite
Ask the shy new girl or the cutest guy in class to join you
for some pre-quiz cramming at your place. Take some time to focus on the
studying, and then grab a snack for some chill bonding time.
