Pheh, walk into the group, excuse yourself for the intrusion, then say you noticed her over the past couple of 'times' and was wondering if you could buy her something to drink or something

You're gonna look odd anyway, but at least odd with balls

I'm trying to figure out a way to look more causal. Is there any other options? What if she is with one friend? She is definately a science person with big glasses, but I know it is just only a little part of her personality.

Uh, just sit next to her/the group and try to start a conversation? It's normal to greet each other or ask if the seat is open when sitting down at least. First line spoken! It depends on the mood but casual conversations often come out of that.

At least it's not that unusual here.

Around my area it is strange for random people to say "hi". Then again now that I think about people don't usually look at each other when walking. People usually ignore the outside by listening to their ipod, text, or talk to there friends if they have time.

I guess I'll do what Zebra said about the sitting down part if there is a seat avaliable. Table and seating arrangements can be tricky sometimes.

Huh, really? Interesting. Where I'm from (and where I currently am) it's not all that odd to say hi to someone you don't know, or to smile and wave at them if you look at each other. It's a nice little way of acknowledging each other, even if we don't know each other very well.

bump into her, with books flying all over the place. apologize. ask out to date. cliches rule IRL.

That's not funny in IRL. Getting shoved on purpose is not romantic.

When you live in a big city, that sort of behavior is looked upon as odd. The only people who will smile and wave at me are old folks (65+) who still have some notion of manners and politeness.

Everyone else, unless I know them, will ignore me, even if we accidentally make eye contact.

Interesting replies guys, I believe I was in love, once. Though I've never been in a proper relationship. I never had an interest in her, just another person. But we did become friends at some point, and it kind of grew from there. I suppose it was mostly her personality and our similar interests, Quite outgoing and makes people feel good. Also likes attention to an extent and quite intelligent. She likes physical contact with friends (Which I am not used to) so perhaps that led me on/made a stronger relationship. So yeah...

I don't think I've ever really had any 'crushes', maybe just sexual attraction or mild infatuation.

I can remember an incident where I accidently bumped into a girl on a party. As I was trying to appologize she was taking my hand and we went to the dance floor (I think alcohol was the other reason).

Try with an old classic. Make some arrangements with your friends and fallow her around. When she is alone in the alley, give a sign for your friends to attack. Then few second later you jump in and scare them away. Everything else will come by itself, trust me, it works... in my dreams.

Ok, please don't be offended by my joke, I'm just that kind of a guy. I know this is serious matter and I really feel for you. But I'll tell you one thing in serious manner. No matter how you start the conversation, if she doesn't show any interest in the beginning don't go kicking yourself in the head and thinking how you could have handled that differently, because the end result would have been the same. Then again, they say first impression is the important one so... bah, what do I know. Good luck, ether way.

Ok here's my take: down a beer, wait till she's leaving, go up to her and say something like "I feel like I've met you before..."

Note: downing a couple of beers will probably help with this plan cause going sober you'll probably chicken out after she refutes the claim.

Exactly. Not just the big cities, but the central valley too If two guys accidently stare a fight might break out depending in the situation. Example--- Highschool football games where some loser guy tries to impress a girl. It works sometimes too.

I'm going to follow the all knowing zebra about the book flying case. Good cliche though Almost forgot some of the rules.

Lol. That only works if you have strong muscular guys for friends. It would be funny if my friends tried that stunt then they end up running to the other direction. Maybe I should try that Coca-Cola commerical trick.

First impression matter to an extent, but I think your right in the part if she doesn't seem interested in the beggining then she probably wouldn't be interested later. Unless I pester her too much

This, my friend, is why pickup lines were invented. You have to hit her from the get go with the unexpected and keep her off balance for a bit. Don't overstay your welcome, though!

Swing in and sit down, glance around a bit, then lower your head and whisper, "Just act casual, like this is supposed to be normal. The ninjas are watching."

While they blink, raise your voice and ask, "So, how are your classes going? Get another A on your latest assignment again?"

Viola, you've just made yourself stick out in her mind, and segued the conversation into a way that she can start talking about the thing you have in common: your class together. Try not to hang out too long, maybe 5 minutes, then quickly ask in a low whisper, "I think they are getting onto me. Quick, give me your phone number so it looks natural that we're friends. I'll call later when I need help!"

Don't phrase it as a question. Just ask for it as if it were natural she'd give it to you. 9 times out of 10, they will. Or ask for an e-mail address, or whatever else you think might work best. A few days later, make use of it to either arrange a study-together session, or just plain ask her out: "Hey, remember me? Ninja guy? I think they're closing in again, so I need your help. Accompany me to (local theme park), and I'm sure that will throw them off my trail once more!"

Good luck!

If I were you, I would go and introduce myself to her while her friends are with her. This way she wont feel uncomfortable. Plus you already have something in common(in the same class) so it wouldn't be that odd at all. Just be more confident.

You know this only happens in anime and not IRL.

Then she tells you off for not paying attention to where you were going and storms past you, completely blowing off your question and muttering about what a jerk you are under her breath.

Interestingly enough, that doesn't matter. Once you get put into friend territory, you're sunk, and by being a bit crazy, you keep her intrigued. Will it work with everyone? Obviously not. But you'd be surprised at how many it does with.
