I am a 15-year-old schoolboy. This year a new girl took admission in my class. More than often, in the beginning, I saw her staring at me. Sometimes even I gave a look to her. This happened for many days.
Amidst this, I realised that I started liking that girl! I have kinda a crush on her.
Once I heard her talk about Harry Potter with her bench partner. May be she is a potterhead? Cause I am a potterhead! So this can be a starting point for the conversation. We have never talked to each other ever before, so this would be first time I will be interacting with her.
How do I mix up with her properly by starting a conversation?
Location: Maharashtra (state), India. In India, specially where I come from, at least in my school, it's not so common for boys to talk with girls in open, due to many pre assumed notions.
EDIT 1: I got her number from her school friend. Now my question is similar to this: How to contact a girl whose number I got from somebody else?
I am not referring to the answers here because the context is different. It's more on dating - girlfriend side, and we are just school students.
How do I message her without being seen as creepy? I have her WhatsApp number. I don't wanna tell her that I like her at very first, but rather become friendly with her.
EDIT 2: I have confirmed that she's a big fan of Harry Potter. So, I have an idea. What if I message her something like this:
After all this time?
This is one of the most popular lines in the Harry Potter series. I expect that she might reply:
Then I would introduce myself. Is it a good idea? I hope someone finds this worth answerable.
