Hello Pit.

I´m starting the swedish equivalent of high school(Your 16 when you start) tomorrow and i´m pretty nervous. I only know one other person who´s going there but i dont know if we´ll be in the same class.

It´s a music and arts school so the people who´s going there people are 80% girls and i am not the best at talking to girls, at least not for the first time.

Anyone got any tips for me?

But you'll be fine.

It's normal to be nervous. Just stay calm, and try to talk to people even if you don't want to. Be social and everything will be fine.

I hang out with alot of girls and even had a girlfriend til recently. The thing is i´m not good at breaking the ice. But since it´ll be a music school everyone shares a similiar interest and can always talk about that.

Dude, you're going to have the best time of your life! An arts school filled with loads of girls (who like the arts)!

Everyone here is very jealous of you. Talking to girls will be easy for you as you're going to be in their classes and everything.

Seriously, the best thing to do is just try and make friends, just have simple conversations with people and try not to do anything really embarrassing or stupid, you don't want to get a nickname on your first day. Just simple generic conversations about music/previous school/how you're finding your new school kind of stuff will do...

Går du estet eller?

You'll be fine. Just remember to start the day by bribing the principal.

Dude, sucking at French and being with French girls is great. You can be ridiculously flirtacious and not actually feel self concious about it and they love it! I was doing white water rafting in Zambia and there were two french sisters onboard and i've never felt so confident in my life. granted, I started failing miserably after complimenting them on having 'beautiful eyes' for the eighth time but the first few times they liked it! (I think)

School of arts. School of arts with mostly girls. School of arts with girls who like arts.
But I know you said you weren't great with girls but you know, you'll get better once you hang out with them more as Ghast said.
And you're probably worried about having to get a whole new group of friends. But just think of the friends you have in your other school. You befriended them so you won't have any trouble making more

Man, I've never been to the same school two years in row. My dads in the military so we move every couple years too. So...

Just go. You've end up talking to people who know other people there. You'll meet more and more people into you know a lot. Some of them will like you. Some of the people who you will think are cool will have friends who think you suck. Just make good first impressions and be a nice person in general.

If you seem like a cool guy, people will want to be around you. If you seem like a loser, then things are just gonna be a little harder when starting out.

Hakuna Matata... Life is good. Don't stress, and I KNOW everything with end up fine.

I'm about to start a new school in this tiiiiny town in TX after being in Japan for four years. I stressed about it a bunch, and all it did was put me in a bad mood. I realized that there was really nothing I could do to help myself out before i got there.
Theres not a lot you can do beforehand, just be confident.
Im on a bunch of pain pills right now, because i just had surgery, but everything i said here is true, i just didnt right it out all that well..


Good luck.

Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above.

Girls who like the arts are generally a lot nicer than girls who don't (pretty random stereotype pulled out of my arse). I'm not being totally ridiculous, i've always found girls who like real music to be a lot kinder and more down to earth than those into scenes. You'll do fine, just tell them you're a Feb 08'er and you'll do great. You're like a veteran man.

Isn't 80% girls good?

20 boys, 80 girls
4 girls a boy? Minus the ugly ones = 2-3 girls a boy = win

It will be good later, right now it just seems like to many girls to try and impress. And as a side note i can tell you that i play better guitar than most of the people in year 3 in the school.

My plan is to watch all the courage wolfs i can find before going in the morning. That will boost my confidence a bit.

You'll be fine. Just be yourself, act friendly, and you'll have new friends in no time.

You'll be fine, don't worry. I feel intimidated about going to a new University next month as well but there's gonna be tons of friendly people and it'll just take a few days to get used to the new school.

Not really. Don't come off as over-eager or annoying. Just be nice to people and act friendly and open and all will be well.

The don'ts are mostly common sense like..

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GET NAKED.

Lucky... your in sweden, and the school your going to is 80% girls... swedish girls!!

lucky bastard, probably tons of lesbians.
#37
Just try for the love of God to act normal, at least on the first day. If you can, try to make some friends, but if its not working don't bother, you'll make casual relationships in class etc. Anyway, if your looking at getting a girl, which I'm assuming a large part of the post is about, if you act like a freak that will impact how every girl looks at you for quite some time. But if you act normal girls will get a 'crush' (as much as I hate the term) and youknow, send you messages in class n ****.
