Don’t make it complicated, or over-think it. Don’t use any lines. Just walk up to this girl you’ve been thinking about a lot and introduce yourself. Say, “Hey, I know this might seem kind of random, but I’ve just always noticed you. You seem really sweet, and I like you a lot. Would you like to hang out sometime?”
