I really like this one guy.
We are both really shy and we keep having awkward moments where we make eye contact then we both look away. I don't really know much about him though. How could I get to know him better when we only see one another in school?
Please help Bro Jo,
- Awkwardly Shy
Being able to go up to people you don't know well and start a conversation is a skill that gets better with practice, and talking to someone is the best way to get to know them better.
Smiling helps to break down barriers so that people feel more comfortable talking to us. So next time, don't be so quick to look away; give a little smile. And then, perhaps the time or two after
that, give a wave.
In the interim, work on your shyness by making new friends, guys and girls, too.
Simply pick out someone who seems like they could use someone to talk to and go up and introduce yourself.
