So there is this HB7 I've seen around my school that rides the bus I ride (I don't ride the bus often at all. Today was maybe my third or fourth time). SO I decided to chat her up, opened about her math homework (since it was out), and talked about a whole bunch of things. I saw her giving me IOIs such as looking at me, etc.
The thing is, she always puts herself down. "I'm weird", "sorry", and those types of phrases are constantly apparent in her vocabulary and diction. I feel like I have a much higher value than her, but I still like her and want to help her. With her, I feel like my goal isn't straight out making out, but it would be nice.
How do I approach this? Do I compliment her constantly? She is really insecure of herself, and I'm quite sure shes already attracted to me. I built some comfort on the bus, and shes interesting and has a lot of things to talk about, but has no self confidence.
