Hey guys, this is my first post here. I am posting here because I found this forum through google and well there's pretty much been this girl I've been really interested in for whatsoever reason, which I am not quite so sure about myself but this is probably been my first approach on a girl I like since my ex asked me out. I'm at my last year of high school and well the school year is almost over for me and I'm just not sure how to have a proper conversation with her and I'm not sure if she is interested in me.
Well basically this girl is in one of my classes and well I never took attention to me but recently I have been noticing her more often and I don't want to say I like her or I have a crush due to the fact that I barely know her but for the past two months I have walked up to her in my study periods and sat next to her about 5 times and initiated a conversation with her for about 3 minutes each time and 50 minutes of silence. I am not quite sure about the IOI's and such because I am only just starting out reading these details on google and well some possible IOI's I may have noticed includes: she is always smiling hen I'm talking to her and when I see her in the hallway at times, I have overheard one of her friends talking about me with her about my english oral which I did in class(this is one of her friends outside my english class well I'm not sure if this is because she was interested in me because I did a pretty damn good oral in class and well her friend was talking about this when I was pretty near them), there are also times here she is holds eye contact with me when I see her in the hallway, she points her leg at me when she crosses her leg(only when I sit next to her) and play with her hair a lot hen I sit next to her, caught her staring at me when I walked in the class once and she looked away the moment I noticed, she looks at me a lot when I'm talking to other people(when I'm sitting next to her and the conversation has nothing to do with her whatsoever) and lastly she only initiates conversations with me when she over hears me talking about english with one of my friends who is also her friend.
Well, I'm not sure if these are all actually IOI's but I'm not quite confident(I always think about what to say before and I get a lot in my mind before I approach her and kind of freak out in my conversations and I end up saying one of 10 things I want to say) as I've only started reading these things up and well I just understood what my friend meant when he called me an AFC.
So my question might be stupid but...
Does she like me? I'm not sure if these are really IOI's or maybe she's directing them at someone else or she just has a habbit of touching her hair a lot(as there was a time when I had a test and I sat on the opposite side of the room facing her and I'm not sure if she noticed me or not but she kept touching her hair)
What should I do to keep my confidence to be able to keep our conversations flowing?
