1. Be bold. Often girls will be shy and will want you (the man) to come talk to her. So, if you're confident enough, make the first move. You'll have to make it really clear from the outset that this is about friendship, not romantic love, but there is certainly nothing wrong with the love of friends. A good place to make friends is in the classroom where you can work together. Tell her you want to be her friend. 2. Splash around the praise. Girls love compliments, try saying "You look great today" or "Sweet shirt". Butter her up and she'll return the compliments for you. It's a way of respecting one another and caring about each other. Try to compliment other things than her appearance as she might take it the wrong way. 3. Lend her your gear and borrow hers. The iPod, the laptop, the books, the guitar. Both of you should feel it's okay to share treasured things with one another. Don't just suggest it out of nowhere or it might look like a technique, wait till she asks.
