There is this girl at my university I like. We are both in law. anyways, she has mutual friends with me (some not all). This friday we are going to this formal dress up party but before that my female friend is having a get together at her apartment for pre-drinks. The girl I like is sort of friends with my female friend and my female friend invited her too so she is coming over I think. anyways the girl I like i'm too scared to talk to her in class, i'm too nervous and we never really talk so I don't feel comfortable (lack the balls lol) to just go up and strike a conversation. about a week an half ago she saw me at the bar and she came up behind me and pug her arms around me and said hi. i was surprised bec we never talk in class or anything. i talked to her at the bar for some time and she was super nice. but since then in class we don't talk and i get nervous around girls I like and pretty much ignore them in class. so anyways she is probably coming over on friday evening for pre drinks at my friends house and I want to try and talk to her more but not sure what to say or do. any tips? i've heard conflicting things, like some people say try and be friends with a girl first and other say no don't try and be friends first bec you'll go into the "frindzone". also my female friend invited her lawyer friend over also and i bet he'll try and hit on her also. any tips guys? i really like this girl for some reason. oh and she is friends mostly with the kind of nerdy/ geeky crew in my school and I think she is shy, she talks a lot in class but I think she is shy, that's prob why she talked to me when she was drinking.
