How do i approach a girl at her workplace??

Saw this girl while i was at an appointment at the vets.
I have to go back next week.
I'm not afraid of approaching girls or anything but just wondering how you could approach someone in such a closed space area???
can't exactly just walk up to her and ask for her number without looking like a terrorist

Honestly I’d just walk up to her and ask her out. Worst case she says no- but imagine if she says yes! It doesn’t matter that she’s at work- if anything her colleagues will be jealous! Go for it!
Never ever approach a girl at her workplace.
It will only make you look desperate or like a creepy wannabe pua.
You don't. In today's world that's creepy and unacceptable. You will 100% get rejected and it's not worth the risk. You don't approach anyone at their workplace let alone ask for numbers. Let this one go and forget about it.

yeah i was thinking the same. i can't find a way where it isn't a bit creepy.
Though i disagree with the generalisation of all workplaces. I think its quite acceptable in like a store. I've been approached many times when working in a shoe store and didn't find it at all creepy. I've also seen relationships form when people have approached others in a open area style workplace.
Just depends on the environment.
i guess the best i can do is smile at her and show interest and hope to see her outside her job
Leave her alone.
You go up to her, stammer when you say you think she's fit, then beg her not to file a restraining order.

Just be careful not to show any stalky behaviour, even if you get to see her outside her job, you can try cold approaching and asking her out but if she says no then she says no.

Going to someone's workplace is number one red flag for stalky behaviour, so definitely try to avoid that.
can't lie some of you are weird.
asking a girl for her socials or number is pretty normal thing to do.
im not stalking her or acting really weird.
Its just the setting isn't ideal to approach her and make conversation.

It is normal, but it depends on the circumstances and the number one thing here is that she doesn't know you. When she doesn't know you, she is unlikely to respond to you positively. Cold approaching never works because it makes you seem like you're desperate and creepy. That's just how it is. It just scares people. Fair enough if you already had a conversation with this girl or if you are acquaintances but from your first post I get the idea that the girl does not know you and well my dude sorry to say but cold approaching does not work and also the girl is there to do her job so she probably does not want to be approached anyway.

agreed. cold approach rarely ever works. And would be very difficult to strike a conversation and build rapport with her before asking her any contact information. thought someone would have a good idea but looks bleak.
for anyone who is afraid dw i will leave her alone
sad times

9- get asked to leave cause this is a veterinary centre, not a bar.

It’s bad form to ask someone out at their work if you’ve no idea if they are remotely interested. The best you can do is try to flirt a bit and see if there’s any reciprocation.

no its not dumb, if you like her you should try atleast. shes not gonna come to you anyway
Like i dont get why people are against this how else do people even meet if talking to people is considered weird or creepy, do they not know how real life works when your out of school its alot different.

I thought you two were in a office together so id say just keep the convo rlly short and ask in the first few steps the next time you see her for an appointment
