    There is a girl in my some if my classes that I would like to be friends with, we are similar types of girls, both academic but play a bit of sports etc...

    However we are both quite quiet in lessons so don't really speak to anyone other than who is next to us. Also, we have a seating plan so it's harder to chat than if we were next to each other within the lesson. I have spoken to her every now and then, however sometimes she just blankly looks/glances at me or when she walks past, doesn't look at all.

    I have spoken to a family member who knows her through school also, he said she is very nice but quiet. I don't know if she dislikes me, i thought we were starting to become friends as she appeoached me three times around 2-3 weeks ago but we haven't really spoken since. Is this happening because she is too shy to approach me? Or will it just take time to ease into an actual friendship? I know i could and should just say hi if I walk past her but it might seem out of the blue and some of the time she doesn't even look. Has anyone had this happen before?

    Does she have a lot of close friends she talks to? If not, she will probably be glad of a friend. Maybe try asking her if she wants to come for lunch with you or something similar?

    maybe you could get her whats app or skupe then you culd messahe each other? Alternatively you seem to be doing fine, your friendly and not overpowering. maybe one day you cna suggest doing soemthing together, film , sport, event dunno. fact you have spoken to a family member was smart.


    take with a pinch of salt its just ideas.

    I'm probably a girl like yourselves. Can you not add her on Facebook or anything? Or join clubs/societies that you know she's a part of that you also like?

    Step 1 - Say Hi, quiet people are people too.
    Step 2 - Make them comfortable.
    Step 3 - Laugh at the time you remembered them as quiet.

    I've got her on Instagram, although my approach has been to just smile or say hi so she knows i'm friendly but as I said, she sometimes avoids looking at me and it is so confusing. Just trying not to take it to heart and instead take each encounter as it comes, occasionally she does smile/acknowledge me. Bearing in mind the first proper conversation we had was just over two weeks ago so it's early days still.
