Question
Hey, James,

First, I hope you're having a good day! =)

I'm really excited about asking this girl out. Because, well, I've never asked a girl out before. She sits in the same spot in the public study room on campus every Tuesday, and I've seen her there four times. Well, I like her. So I struck up a conversation with her. Her name is Amanda.=)

Next Tuesday when I see her again, I was going to ask her if she wanted to grab a coffee. I've heard good things about this coffee place up the road from campus (the philosophy club meets there).

I only get to see her before my class starts, and then she goes off to somewhere around the same time, which complicates things a bit.

Another question, how do you ask a girl out when she's a little out of your league? I'm asking her out because I've nothing to lose, and I really think she's cute; on the other hand, I'm not the best-looking guy in the world. Yeah, yeah, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, -- blah -- but given that fact, should I revise my approach?

Thanks, James. If it helps, I'm 21, single (obviously... well, maybe not haha), and male.

I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,
Matt

Answer
If you have nothing to lose than I suppose it doesn't  matter. lol. I personally have never dated anyone out of my league and get constant attention from women twice my weight class. I'm 33 and really envy you. lol. I say as cliche as it sounds just be yourself. Don't seem too eager but don't act. No reason to approach her different if she's the type that is bound to treat you as an equal anyway.

Expertise

First and foremost if you read ahead you'll find I have a word limit on questions I'll read. This site is for short simple questions and it should not be for writing essays. Please also note I am unfamilar with most cultures outside of United Stated, UK, and France. Please respect my rules. I don't like rejecting questions. I will be the first to admit that I don't know everything about dating, women/men, and interpersonal connections. However I have learned quite a bit vicariously from other people's experiences. Think of my advice as a second opinion. I would be happy to answer all questions related to relationships, dating, self-confidence, and self-image that I can. I have struggled with all of those things and probably know better than most how to deal with all of them.

I hope more than anything that my advice and opinions will help give people perspective in their lives, and hopefully make them feel better about themselves and their situations. I will attempt answering questions for anyone of any age group or nationality. However it would be particularly useful to know the age of all people involved. It does make a difference towards the advice I give. Also not terribly familar with arranged marriages and situations in which the family can dictate the details of the relationship.

My Rules:
1). I can't answer questions that ask if a girl or guy likes the other (very difficult to know remotely)
2). No questions that are More Than 250 Words. I understand that problems can be complex, but there is a real limit to how much I can read and fully understand. Particularly if English isn't the questioner's native language.
3). Only questions from Americans, Canadians, British, and cute French women.
4). No questions that ask the meaning behind if a person sets their FB status to single, coupled, or private or if they still have a dating profile undeleted somewhere. If you're cyber snooping you're likely the issue.

Experience

I don't really have any specific experience in this area other than learning from other people's mistakes and a few of my own, and whatever I've learned as a psychology major.
