    Hey people...

    Never posted before so don't have a go at me please, would appreciate some advice.

    I've known of this girl for a while, but never met her before. Just so happens that I'm relatively decent friends with her best friend.

    Yesterday, I got home to a message on fb from the best friend saying she saw me out and then I realised that the girl i like was with her and most likely would have seen me too...

    So i started texting and got the girl's number from her best friend/my friend last night. Normally, I'd have no trouble texting someone, but I can't get my head around this one. What do you text a girl you like that you've never met?

    I wouldn't

    Can you not ask the one you have met to meet up with you and bring her along...then texting the girl you like might not be so weird

    Yeah, just got met your friend somewhere and she'll probably be there.

    I've text a girl I didn't know before, it's ridiculously awkward. Probably becasue you don't know what her personality is like, and it's hard to tell a personality from texting.

    My advice, met her before you text her...

    Have you actually spoken to her online or anything?

    I text people that I chat to online sometimes, and I don't find that weird *shrugs*.

    Or is she literally somebody that you've never had any verbal or textual contact with at all, ever?

    play it cool and see how it goes.

    but if you meet up remember to bring along a responsible adult, otherwise you could get raped.

    OP one word: your a pu**y! c'mon dude dont text a random girl like that...tell your friend when is he/she meeting her again and when she's out with her go and hang out and speak to her. If you text a girl whom you havn't met that won't make her interested in you. Seriously dude! I mean seriouslyyyyy!

    See, the difference between my post and your post is that, mine was actually true. If the OP confused you, then it really doesn't take much and you are in fact, an idiot. Whereas, your post, well, let's face it, you didn't have sex with my dad last night.

    Start off with something like the following. I'm assuming she's called Amanda.

    "Hello Amanda, you don't know me, but I know you..."

    just add her on facebook? it's much easier to talk to people you wouldn't normally on there! and it's less creepy.

    The difficulty you have is that you didnt obtain her number from her directly, so make sure you come across as a non threatening, normal human being otherwise she is going to wonder why her mate is giving her phone number to random weirdos.

    Just play it cool, say you've heard the stories about her and probably saw her the other night and thought she seemed like a cool person and that you look forward to your mate introducing you.
    Whats the worst that can happen?

    did the same thing, with a boy
    except it was kinda different cos it started off as a joke, so i didnt really care what he thought of me, then eventually grew into a friendship
    was just like wuu2, talked about mutual friends, holidays, etc, just getting to know each other.. dont be scared and just be chatty
    hope it all goes well!!
    it did for me and we text all the time now, and it wasnt awkward at all

    Neither do I.

    If you've never ever exchanged words at all it may be a lil weird. I'm sure her friend can fill her in though?
