    OK so I've just seen a beautiful girl whom I got two mutual friends with, who is also invited to the same party I'm going to soon.

    Chances are, she may not even come so would it be a good idea for me to add her? Like say stuff like 'i saw you in the group' and see where it goes? We are in the same university.

    Is this acceptable and or do girls find it creepy? I know I'm probably doomed to fail, but it's worth a shot?

    Not probably, you ARE doomed to fail.

    Just add her anyway. You can decide if you like her in that way or not at a later point. You could also add a few other friends that you are about the same closeness to to try and hide it a bit if you're that way inclined. There's no harm in requesting! I do it all the time to people I've actually met but hardly know.

    Why not wait till the party. If she happens to be there, then great, strike up a conversation in person. Nothing beats the real thing. If she doesn't turn up, then message her on fb saying something like, "Hey, I'm a friend of X, saw you around at uni the other day, and was hoping to catch you at the party, but seeing as you couldn't make it .... I thought I'd message you on here ..." You get the idea. Probably a better approach in my view!

    Doing this BEFORE the party is very likely to lead into failure.

    Do it after, even if you never meet her at said event.

    I think it is a bit creepy to add someone you don't know. Plus if she is pretty it will happen a lot and she is likely to be unimpressed. Even a little bit of normal social interaction though could make it more appropriate.

    Oh, just do it! If she accepts you then that's great, if you get no reply then leave it. Once you have actually met, she might take you up on it!

    You could just say that she looked nice/looked like she was having a great time/seemed interesting, doesn't have to be creepy at all!

    Depends on her whether she adds folk she doesn't know or not.

    My boyfriend now, is a guy who added me on fb.I'd seen him around once before but that was it-mutual friends. We've been together for 2 years.

    Would you have accepted if he didn't look nice?

    I think my opinion differs from everybody elses, but if you go to the same university then I would I know if somebody who went to my college who I didn't speak to added me as a friend and spoke to me i'd be happy to make a new friend ^_^
