Ok, this time it's slightly different, just because I think this girl likes me and I don't know what I should do...
Well, there's this girl who looks quite good in school, jet-black hair, black eyes, around 5'1", looks sweet. And this girl has been literally staring at me when I walk past. It started one day when I was going to check the room allocation, well this girl was sitting near the board and talking to another girl. She stared at me a lot and continued a smiling chat with her friend. It continued several times, and this week I was talking to my friend in the canteen, showing him my mobile and several tables away, there she was, again staring and chatting and smiling.
Now the thing has started to scare me, so every time we walk against each other in the corridor, I make it a point to stare at her, too. I must admit I'm starting to like her physically, but this thing just can't go on this way.
I figured out she might:
i) like me
ii) be laughing at me
While I hope it's i), I can't be sure. I don't know who she is, I've never talked to her in my life and just doin't know what to do.
What should I do?

"Old enough to bleed...old enough to breed" ..Lortab 7.5mg ..... thats some sick s**t
My advice to turbolet..... go upto her very very casually one day and start a conversation by asking or saying anything light.....i mean i would sometimes just ask someone if they have a lighter or a matches or anything...you know something to that effect....just breaks the ice yet doesnt make it seem that youre approaching her too directly. Do keep one golden rule in mind my friend for the rest of your life......never let these oppurtunities go by when the girl is good or even just do-able ....you will regret every single one of them as you grow older.
By next week we should surely hear some progress on this issue......good luck

Get all googly in the knees, red in the face and scared s**tless and introduce yourself. The alternative is that that she does like you and will, after a time, decide you are not interested in her. Walk up with all your fear and speak the truth. Women are not offended by shyness.
Damn, I wish I could follow my advice as well as I can give it.
DO IT ! DAMN IT!
A quote from Frank Sinatra : "regrets, I've had a few, but then again too few to mention". Please don't add another regret to your life. You'll accrue enough over time. You cannot begin to imagine the women I've been afraid to ask out. A No, in retrospect, would be better than the what if.
I always thought I would work until I died. I find that I am ready to not work anymore.

Hehe... ok, thanks for the advice and humour. Probably the most widely shared opinion is to start a leisurely convo, so I might as well go for it. Next time I'm at school is Mon, I'll see how things work out.
As for her age, I'm sure she's 16-20; most people in my class are 16 or 17, I skipped a year. So there, she's legal.
