It isn't weird to just go up and talk to him - it's normal and it is how you meet people! My parents met because my dad was happy to go up to my mum in a library and talk to her
Plus, what other ways can you think of that are less creepy - stalking him on social media?

And if that doesn’t work, try a head spin

You could think about what to say first? If you both finish studying at similar times, you could even say something like "hey, I'm going to pret now, do you want to come"?
Yes it's embarassing and it's scary but it's the only way you can get to know this guy, and biting the bullet could be a really great decison. Even if, worst case scenario, he blanks you, no one else has to know

Haha maybe he's thinking the same thing!
If they're good friends, they'll take the piss a bit maybe but they'll be sympathetic. If they're mean to you for getting rejected, you've found out early on that they're not that nice!

Perhaps one day you ask him what is he up to after uni. You won't regret it....

But surely its weird to go up to someone and just ask them that? I would find it weird

Is there any way for me to make him approach ME instead?

write your confession on a piece of paper, crunch it up, then chuck it at him. as soon as he looks in your direction violently flirt.

I would love that ****.

That is just sooooo easy, however depends where he is from it might takes 100 years. Unless you're the kind of person that likes to be worshipped, just go to him wherever you see him, greetings and random conversation is the only way humans used to communicate before Facebook.

I was in the same boat at one point. Didn't get the girl but my sense of humour helped me stand out. If your personaloty doesn't stand out too much, change your appearance.

Maybe don't straight up start a conversation, but try to make scenarios that would initiate or force some sort of convo. Be creative. Like, do you sit quite close or far apart? You could drop something somewhat near him and then ask him to give it to you or get it back yourself, then start a convo maybe asking about your mutual friend. Or since it is a study room, you could ask him to help you understand some concepts or be interested in what he's studying.

I don't think people find it easy, it's just easier to write stuff than actually doing it.

You’re definitely right, its easier said than done. Unfortunately we sit kinda far but im so stupid, i was with our mutual friend and he came to speak to her and i said nothing! It was the perfect opportunity
