I like this guy that is older than me by 2-3 years and I see him at school a lot. But I am not sure how to talk to him and he is always around his friends. Also, I have no friends in common with him and I barely know him.

Do this (it is a classic technique): Loiter around he or his friends for whatever reason. You can pretend you are reading your smartphone or tablet or a book or whatever. However, listen. Just listen to what they are talking about. You might want to do this for a few days or so to try and understand the kind of person he is and/or what he likes or what his classes are, etc. One day, a topic will come up, and you can say something like "Pardon me, but I couldn't help but overhearing you that (some subject)." You've now injected yourself into the group. As a girl, you will be welcome in a group of boys. Start talking and feel free to ask questions. Listen in particular for his answer. Then - and this is critical - ask follow up questions to whatever he says to you. Get him to talk (and he will talk about himself). You now have met him and are at liberty to talk to him at any future point in time.0
