A couple of weeks ago, I was leaving school to go to work. I had to use the washroom so I pulled into a plaza behind my school. Turns out I parked in a private property spot so when I came back, I seen a parking patrol officer putting a ticket on my dashboard. We had a short conversation about the ticket but he wasn't rude about it, he was talking to me in a friendly, casual manner. During the conversation I realized how good looking he was and he sort of checked me out. So yesterday I was hanging out at the plaza behind my school with a friend and we were talking about my psychology exam. I seen the same patrol officer sitting in his car. When I glanced over, I seen him staring at me. I want to get to know him but I don't know how to approach him without looking weird or desperate. I've had a bad experience several months ago when I gave a guy my number first without him asking (he only wanted to sleep with me). He seems like a cool guy but I don't know what he's like outside of his uniform and I don't want to make that same mistake again. Do you think I should try to have a conversation with him? If so, How do I approach him?
Is it a good idea to approach him?

All you need to do is get more tickets lol. Nah but I think you should approach him. Try to have at least a short conversation - you don't wanna overdo it since he's on duty. But if you have that small convo you'll at least get to know him a little, maybe find out about when he's working and when he's off, what he does in his spare time etc. From there it'd be a little easier to ask him out or have him do it.1

Honestly, probably not. From experience, I have no problem approaching men and showing interest first but I have NEVER found anything long term by doing that. As a glutten for punishment I will probably still continue to do that but I wouldn't advice any women follow in my footsteps.
I know a lot of men say they love it when a woman approaches them but it seems to me that men think you are a brazen harlet and they can treat you as such when you make the first move.
Maybe just make a point of waving and saying hello every time you see him and see if he will approach you :)1
