    How to approach??

    I’m in a situation I’ve never been in before. Usually when I meet a guy I’m interested in, it comes about naturally, like we work together, or hang out at friend’s house, attend a wedding, something. Currently, I’ve had my eye on a guy (who is a friend of a friend, but they’re not super close),but have not had an opportunity to talk to him. I don’t want to stalk him, but I don’t won’t to rely on the off chance our mutual friend will happen to invite him over or something.
    Question: my friend’s advice is they could text the guy and just say “hey, she saw you and thought you were attractive, if you’d like her number here it is” or something along those lines.
    Is that weird of me? I really want to talk to this guy, not sure how to make it happen!

    it wouldn’t be weird of YOU b/c if they do it the way they just said, it’s coing from YOUR FRIENDS. so you’re in the clear.
    If it comes from the friends, it’s cool. It’s actually flattering. Not only do “you like him” but your friends are even encouraging him to contact you and ask you out. That’s a LOT of confidence boosting to make him go for it.

    So I like the plan your friends have proposed. I think that’s a win win.

    Short of that if you cross paths with him again.. say ‘hi’. smile. talk to him. The more you make it clear he’s not going to get rejected with you, the more confident and likely he will be in coming forward.

    good luck!

    Thank you Richiro. I went through with the friend texting idea and it went well!
