Is it a bad idea to pursue a girl you barely know? I'm in high school and have really liked this girl for over a year now (which means I should probably do something about it, right?). We are both Christian, so I feel like I need an alternative approach than most guys use. Last year, around February, we sat by each other in a class for almost a month. We talked a ton, and yeah. I thought she may have liked me, but at the time I was to stupid to really pursue her I guess. After we got new seats and didn't sit together, we never talked. Just sort of gave awkward glances to each other. The rest of the year I was contemplating whether or not I should talk to her (ok, I was scared. lame me), but I never did. So this year we have no classes together. I decided to try and forget her, but I was not able to. Recently, I finally just broke down and found a time to talk to her. That was a month ago. Since then, we have continued to talk a few times, but I always start the conversation. Now does it seem creepy/stalker-ish/needy/weird/dumb/totally-random of me to really try and talk to her and eventually ask her out? I have never asked a girl out before, and I feel like an idiot about the whole thing. I also have this sense that she is trying to be some "pure-person" and not date anyone. Is this wrong of me to even attempt? I feel extremely guilty for some reason, but I really like her for who she is and it is driving me nuts! Also, we don't have any mutual friends really.
