So this is my first 'attempt' at this sort of thing. Up until a few months ago, I was in a relationship. I was in it since I was like, 14. I never went to High School; I home schooled through it. That being said, I haven't really the faintest idea of how to date, or ask girls out. There is someone I like...but we've never really hung out. She is mutual friends with my cousin on Facebook. I've 'met' her before, you could say. We went to Elementary and Middle school together. In 5th grade, she had a crush on me. I liked her back,but being super-shy then I never really talked to her. In middle school (7th grade) I still liked her, but had kind of given up on it slightly, because my severe lack of self-esteem back then. My 'friends' in Middle school thought it would be funny to date her even though they knew I liked her. So Jon went out with her for a week or something. It might be possible she was aware I liked her then, too. But anyway, that's...almost eight years ago? She seems like a great person, and I've always thought she was cute. I don't have any real-life mutual friends that I can connect to her with. I've been told where she works (a phone support center) and there's not really any way for me to just 'bump' into her. I think the ONLY way I have to contact her is through Facebook. I'm not sure how to go about it without being weird. How can I start talking to her, and ask her out?
