Real Shy
I really like this guy and i've met him once before. I am very shy and have subsequently found out that he is also very shy and a bit of a loner. I have thought about asking him out for a drink but being shy really does not help, but I'm preapred to take the risk, i have nothing to lose right? A mutual friend must have told him by now and that makes me even more nervous. He is trying to set something up (a group thing) and that makes me even more nervous. What should I do, ask him for a drink or wait for the party?

Dear Kristina, as you and Jule both say --- what have you got to lose ? The chances are that everything will go smoothly and you'll have a pleasant time together. But even if it turned out to be boring or disappointing, it wouldn't be worse than not meeting him at all, and continuing to wonder what you may have missed. Why not ask him for a drink anyway, and you'll have a second cance at the party ; and if the drink goes well, you'll stat at the party with one more friend.
Gee, we're geting close to February 29th when women are supposed to be encouraged to propose marriage to men --- so asking him for a date should be a far lesser hurdle !
