Try: Hey, you’re cute
(Think: Wait no, that makes me sound like I’m 12 with a puppy crush.)
Try: Hey, you’re pretty attractive.
(Think: Pretty attractive? Come on brain, why can’t you commit to a compliment?)
Say: Hey, do you want to grab coffee sometime?
(Think: Okay, not bad, but what if they say no, oh my goodness, I can’t handle this pressure.)
Reply: Sure, sounds great!
Say: Awesome, what day works for you?
(Think: Awesome? AWESOME? What is wrong with me? Could I BE any more lame? And when am I even free? What?)
Say: Perfect, works for me!
(Think: I mean, you’re perfect. Wait no. Oh my goodness, what am I going to talk about tomorrow? Did I fail at social norms already? HOW DO I FLIRT?)
