Meeting people over facebook - August 12th 2012, 06:40 PM

What would be your thoughts on meeting new people on facebook? I've always wanted to pop up to that one girl who i've met a few times but I don't know how to do it without looking weird and making it cringey? whats a good way to start a conversation with someone?

I've moved this over to Friends&Family since your question is regarding friendships rather than relationships.

Whenever she's online just say hello and start talking causally. It won't be too weird as long as you just work towards being friends with her first. Ask her things about herself and just focus on getting to know each other. Then I'd invite her to a group thing and then later on so that it won't be awkward.
I've met a few of my friends over Facebook and it wasn't weird at all.


And here you are living, despite it all.

It shouldn't be too awkward if you've met her before. Facebook is casual, and I don't think she'd mind if you sent her a request. Just chat her up! Ask about school, life, friends, etc. if it doesn't work out the way you want it to, count it as her loss and move on! There's lots of friendly people willing to talk to you

Hey there, I would say that you should try and send her a fb message or talk to her on Facebook chat. I would say that you should start the convo in a casual way then after a few days of talking and building the friendship, you can possibly ask her to hang out

Even though you might want it to turn into a relationship one day, try starting off as friends. When you see that she's online, send her a quick IM saying hi and asking about her day. Start off with casual conversations and work your way up from there. If you really get to know her and allow her to get to know you, it'll make the progression from a friendship to a relationship a little bit easier.


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

You should definitely work on becoming friends with her first. You don't want to just jump into a relationship with someone you don't really know. Get to know her, strike up casual conversations. See if the friendship is strong enough and you two like each other well enough to become a couple. You just think she's hot, but she could be a total bitch. Or a total sweetheart.

Then it's done with. She's clearly not interested in becoming friends with you. I'd suggest finding people who actually have things in common with you, that way you can form a solid ground for a friendship. The best places for that are message boards or something similar. You don't want to say "I want to date her because she's hot." because you don't really know them. That's the worst thing you could do.
