I need to work on my approach. This is how it usually goes:

I'll be sitting out at the quad and I'll see someone cute and I'll approach her like this:

'scuse me...I left my watch this morning. what time do you have?'

*she checks*

'oh, say, nice watch, where did you get it?'

*she says*

'oh, they always have classy stuff there.'

*she looks at me like I'm an idiot* *'sure, but why you still here?'*

'I'm sorry I'm an idiot. Well, have a good one.'

*I run off and hide with my shame*


So, how should I fix my approach?

If there is a way please tell me.


I don't want to have to wait 'til next semester to meet someone.

It's better than my approach. I usually go up and say hello. I have no plan on what to talk about and improvise on the moment.

Within the first like four lines you say, it has to be funny. Other than that, 95% of the time it's dead in the water.
No dead baby jokes.
No mudkipz.
No barrel rolls.
No IcyHot.
A REAL joke thats ACTUALLY funny.

Tell her something you like about her. Be 100% confident. You cant think about it. At all. Youll psyche yourself out.

If I could improvise in the real world the way I do in Jazz Class, I'd be set!

Unfortunately I can't.

What would be something funny?

Also, keeping in mind this is the first time I've ever even SEEN them.

I don't want to sound too creepy

Not just a joke either. Make something up about some nearby event or something. Say your at the park and you see a girl watching this guy try to ask out another girl, but he fails at life, and she doesnt like it. You could say, "Hey maybe she should try asshole repelant." Or make a funny comment on a current event that is nearby. Dont use jokes like, "Why did the dead baby cross the road? It was stapled to the chickens back!!1!!11 LULZZZ!!" And DO NOT ask for the time. Ever.

Being funny isn't the most important thing. As long as you walk up to them with confidence and say hello and start talking about whatever you'll be fine. Funniness comes from talking. It's pretty weird if you just walk up to them and tell them a random joke. Wait for a good moment when the joke wouldn't seem completely irrelevant to the conversation.

So, just strike up a conversation about any innocent, completely, legitimate, thing or event or whatever, throw in a joke or two, a comment, and then ask for her number?

Even though she's never seen me before?

And she shouldn't call security for stalking or anything? *AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!*

yeah, that last line is me just being paranoid.


Hello? Anyone?

Most guys (and girls for that matter) can "sense" if she's interested. Go with your instinct. If she seems bored and untalkitive, dont bother.

Exactly. Just make sure what you talk about IS innocent and legitimate. It shouldn't be like politics or religion but it also shouldn't be something like what you would say to a guy. It also depends how old you are. Also, never do this:

you: Do you like music?
her: Yes
you: I play guitar.

If you're gonna use the "I need the time" approach, only do it once, and use it as an icebreaker that you can bring out at a later time. Just ask for the time, say thank you and smile, then walk away. Then maybe you'll see her at a party or in class some time and you'll have enough grounds for a conversation. "Hey, the girl with the watch! How are you?"

Also, make up random events, after you do your approach thing. like if you talk about the place where she bought her watch, say something nonchalantly, like "i went their last week. their were these two midget chicks fist-fighting over some 7 foot basietball player". anything to get them interested.

say "i have a splintor in my pen3r!" for humanittys sake she will help get it out and when she sees the size it will make or break the relationship. and by that she will either giggle or stuff it in her mouth

the main thing you're doing wrong is starting the conversation about yourself not her.

try something different like, *girl drops books* "oh, hey, you ok? it's such a mission carrying tonnes of books *help them pick her up* haha, yeah, i always drop mine too. what classes are you doing? oh, wow that's awesome! i'd love to try that, but i don't think i'd be any good/i do that too!/i know someone who does that, his/her name is x, do you know them?"

and so on.

No, make fun of her, then help her. Make fun of the situtation instead building up tension.

Yeah I kind of agree. Although a straight out insult is kin of out of order.

I'd help her pick them up and say 'If I hurt my back I'm going to sue.'

Hmm. Happy with that one.

Clearly I don't mean pointing at her and yelling "everyone look at the stoopid!!". I mean make fun of her in a light way, then keeping the lightness up with the line you suggested.

well yeah, making a joke rather than making fun of her. if someone makes a joke at my expense i instantly hate them and vow to kill them, so don't make her feel bad.
