Ask Maddie and Monica: Love Struck

Dear Maddie and Monica,

I am having a problem. I like this kid in Science. His name is Noah but I cant seem to know what to say and how to approach him. Any tips or advice??

Dear Anonymous,

There are multiple ways on how to approach a person we have never talked to before, especially a guy when it comes to girls. We are often intimidated by how outgoing they are while we tend to be quieter around them. But there are so many ways to befriend a guy. Starting off with a “Hi, I’m (insert name here) I don’t believe I know you,” may seem a little old school but that’s how a relationship starts. Try and find a time where you won’t be rushed. Maybe during break or lunch and say, “Hey there, I’m _______. Do you mind if I sit next to you?” than start a light conversation. Be pleasant, smile, and keep eyecontact. Eye contact is uncomfortable at first but you get used to it. Joke around, and be fun. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine. Just be yourself. Hopefully this helps and goodluck!
