Anonymous asked: There's this really talented cellist who is into music, like me. Sometimes he comes to early morning Music Lab. I go there every day. We've talked a little about music and stuff like his mistake when he chose art studio over music studio for his elective there. Unfortunately he's graduating this year and I am staying at the school because I am younger. We don't really talk when school starts because we're in different grades. How do I get to know him better?
It is perfect that you are both into music! Is there anything that he could help you with musically? Or anything music-related that you could discuss with him? Any concerts happening that you could ask if he’s going to?
Think of any reason to hang out with him or talk with him more! Then nonchalantly give him your number as if you are just friends who are just going to keep in touch or meet up every now and then. Next, don’t text him. Wait for him to text you. Unless you planned together that you would contact him to meet up later, wait for him to initiate conversation. If a few days go by, and he doesn’t respond, then ask him a music-related question.
Once you are texting him regularly, if he doesn’t initiate a hang out, then you do it. Ask if he wants to go to a concert cause none of your other friends are interested/available.
After your hangout, you have a friendly connection that you can use as a reason to get to know him better and keep in touch even after graduation. Hopefully you continue to have hang outs and text which will hopefully turn into dates…
