So, I went on a couple dates with this guy over the summer but it kind of fizzled. We've just started to begin to flirt on facebook and facebook chat but we have a class together and NEVER talk. We say hi to each other in the halls, but never talk. Also, he's kind of into the partying scene and part of a different group than me (i'm more serious about school and "goody goody-ish" I guess) which makes it hard to talk to him during lunch when he's with his friends.
I want to start up a conversation with him in class but its hard because I don't know how to start up a conversation with it sounding completely organic and not forced (which would make it awkward). Also, he sits in a different part of class than me which would mean its obvious if I go out of my way to talk to him so it has to be something with a purpose I feel like rather than just "how are you?" or something...

Things are so awkward because your main form of communication has been facebook and facebook chat. If you were to eliminate those two and just talk face to face. You'd see that communicating via computer isn't a replacement for proper communication, it only makes the two of you more distant from each other.
Texting via cell and using facebook take the human element out of communication. If you are truly going to date someone, you have to connect with them physically, emotionally and through body language.
The computer eliminates those elements because your just reading off a computer screen.
Good Luck! Happy Halloween!
