sorry fella's, but I totally disagree with all of you. Lad, i know exactly what your going through, but...it happened to me last year, and i was a coward. never did ask her out, but in my case i was too embarassed cause she was never alone, and i couldent do it in front of her friends. Anyway, you got nothing to lose, the worst case scenario is she'd say no thanks, and you'd be a bit embarrassed, but hey! thats very unlikely, you seem like a nice guy!!
