Invite her to go with you to some school event, like a baseball game or track meet; or to meet you after school for a snack. Do NOT use such classic wuss-boy phrases like "I was wondering if... " or "maybe if you're not busy...". Do NOT tell her you "like" her. That is also wuss-boy behavior; & insulting to her intelligence (if you're standing there, she knows you "like" her.) *** I like pizza. I like my car. I like my golf buddies. I'm romantically interested in my wife. Please, kids, quit using the word "LIKE" when discussing romance.
