First of all, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this thread. It was rather hard to pick one. I thought, since my issue is kind of a "potentially romantic problem" of some kind, I'd post it here. That being said, let me elaborate my situation: I'm a student at university. Since I'm a complete noob when it comes to girls and dating, I have trouble meeting girls and talking to them. I sometimes make eye contact with girls, but I can't make myself approach them. I just freak out and stay passive, whenever I try. However, there were two occasions, which were somewhat different and special. Two specific girls are part of this situation. I will explain what's going on for each girl seperately. So, girl #1 is a really cute blonde. She is literally once of the most beautiful girls, I ever saw. In the past, we often had eye contact and she often smiled at me (no clue if out of interest in me or out of general friendliness). Since no other girl ever smiles directly at me really, I felt special somehow. I had several chances to initiate a conversation, but I blew them all because I chickened out. I could punch myself in the face for it. Nowadays, I don't see her around much. Maybe once every couple of months. Just two weeks ago, I met her at the hallway. She looked at me with a smile, but I fucked up again. I just couldn't say a word. Afterwards, I interpretated her facial expressions as if she wanted to say "Talk to me finally, you dickhead!", which made me almost go crazy (I might overanalyze things here). Since I don't know here name or anything about her, I can't really try to get to know her. But I kinda made friends with the girl, she used to hang out with whenever I saw her. I'm sure this girl does know her name and maybe a number or at least what the blonde girl is doing currently. So basically, I could find out more about the blonde girl through the other girl. The second girl is somewhat similiar. She sat down next to me in a lecture one day and we kinda started some small talk. The next few weeks, she always sat down next to me, but never really said much. Again, I fucked up big time and blew the chances to start conversations. I'm such an idiot sometimes, it's not even funny. Like girl one, girl two isn't around anymore. At least I don't see her any longer at the lectures. But during the time, in which she used to sit next to me, she went to have coffee with another female friend of mine. I could potentially ask this friend, if she knows more about that girl. The thing is, the people I referred to as "friends of mine" are not really friends, but more like the people I chat with a university. But it's not real friendship yet. So, I don't know if it would be too risky or akward to ask them about other girls, which I don't even know. What would you advice me to do? Ask them about the girls or just forget about them and try not to fuck myself over the next time chances like these occur? Is there any chance of ever meeting one of the two girls anymore? Or did I destroy any potential chances by wasting plenty of opportunities in the past? Advice is very much appreciated. I'm a complete disaster when it comes to stuff like this.
