6. Ask Friends to Introduce You
If you are simply afraid to approach a man in any capacity, you may need some help. If you’re out at a party or a group setting, and the guy who tickles your fancy is alone, or appears to be single, ask your mutual friend(s) to hook you up! Get the 411 on him first (do they still say 411?), do your homework to find out his relationship status and a little more about him before you decide if he’s someone you’re still interested in. If he checks out, ask your friend to make a casual introduction or put in a good word for you. This way, it’s not so serious or nerve-racking, or your friends can gauge if his interest is mutual and save you trouble if he isn’t. Either way, you’re out to have fun; and there’s nothing wrong with having fun meeting new people. Keep it light and see where it can go from there. Baby steps.
