Guys what would you think if a random girl asked to sit next to you in a medium sized lecture class? I ask because I think a guy in there is cute and I catch him staring at me so I figure if I sit next to him I could introduce myself. Thoughts please!
Do it. I think the best way to ask would be,"Is this seat taken?" After that, you can comment on something about him or the professor, touch his arm while doing it. It should send a strong signal that you are interested.
