There's this girl who covers the shift after me at work who I am crushing hard on. Thing is, I only know her name and nothing else about her. We've talked a bit and I sense that she is interested in me too. Would it be incredibly autistic of me to just straight up give her my number under the pretense that I may need her to cover my shift at some point? And would it be even more autistic of me to use that as an excuse to start a text conversation with her? I only see her once a week so I don't think it would be that awkward if she turned me down.
Sometimes you need to put your autism into maximum overdrive and ask her out to lunch.
You won't do this I am sure but literally just ask her to hang out or something. You know she wants you so suck it up and fucking do it
Stop. I will not let you plant seeds of doubt in my mind. I need this badly. But my confidence is growing. And if I remain confident, if I believe in myself, then good things will happen. She will say yes. I will get her number. She will be happy to give it to me. She won't have a boyfriend. She is shy, like me. But shy girls like confident guys.
My plan is flawless. You will see.
Don't do the "Work contact, cover moi shift, etc. etc." thing she'll know it's bullshit and get hella turned off.
Just say you want to hang out sometime and ask for her number so you can send her details or something. -->THEN LEAVE<-- Don't do this halfway through the day, because I know you'll be sneaking peeks at her throughout the day like a fucking child. Just do this before she or you leave work.
(be calm with the texting, text her once, a healthy time later, with "Is this _______?", wait for her to respond with the positive, then respond with details, etc. Don't be clingy, never say sorry for anything.)
Ok, that's reasonable. We don't work at the same time though so there's no chance of me looking at her like a creep. She comes in, we chat for 5 minutes or so, I ask if she wants to get lunch sometime, then I leave and go to my next class. That's the plan. Sound good?
I do have aspergers but I'm pretty good at hiding my power level. Plus I'm really good looking, so most girls don't care.
