    Talking to Someone After Knowing Them for a Year and a Half.

    So I like this girl. She’s very shy, and my friends are all in her friend group (well, like, 5/8 of them). I’ve known her for a year and a half and have talked to her twice. I just find it hard to approach her right now.
    What makes things harder is that everyone in her friend group, her included, knows about this whole crush thing. I guess I’ve been too obvious.
    And I don’t want to immediately start going on dates with her. I want to be her friend first, for at least a while, before I get into things. I don’t want to rush me or her, and defnitely don’t want to make her feel uncomfortable. I’m almost certain she fancies me back, but I don’t want things to be so incredibly awkward between us.

    I’ve thought of maybe just hanging around her and finding a way to slip myself into the conversation. My friends could definitely help me in the whole endeavor, so I just need a way to casually approach her.

    Once I can start a conversation, I can keep it up for as long as I need.

    Oh and yes, I’m a school student. High-school, midway through year 8. Couldn’t fit that in because of word limit restraints.

    If you have a lot of mutual friends why not just all get together for something like bowling or a beach day, you should be able to find some time in a situation like that to have some one on one conversation with her, and if it seems good maybe suggest grabbing ice cream just the two of you sometime or something.

    Thank you @kaze and @lilyvalley. I’ll try that whole, mutual gathering thing. 😀
