Ask Rina: Shy girl with a crush


Serina Jones, Staff Reporter

Dear Rina:

There is this cute guy in my public speaking class and he’s single. I really like him, but I am too frightened to approach him. I have been thinking about writing him a letter, but I feel that may be too shy of a move.  What do you think? What should I do?

Dear Shy Girl with a Crush:

Have you ever engaged in conversation with him? If not, just start by saying hello and asking him about his day and his classes. He may just indulge in conversation with you and find you just as interesting as you find him.

I would suggest holding off on the letter unless you absolutely cannot bring yourself to say two words to him. Be strong about it and have a little more confidence in yourself.
