What would you think if a guy you have never talked to before just came up and ask you for a cup of coffee?
Let me explain better... There is this girl in my philosophy class which I never really had the chance to talk too... (trust me, every time I try to set up something it fails. Like I tried to notice every time of the day I see her so I could figure out what her schedule is. But it seems either she's always with someone (I'm kinda shy so that's a nono) or she's not very predictable.(in a way that's good if I ever get to talk to her haha). Now the semester is coming to an end. I got one last class with her and that's it for at least 1 month and a half, after that I'm not even sure ill ever get to see her again. Maybe she's gonna go to another college or I don't know...
So last wednesday, while waiting outside the school to see if she would come out (as always... lol). I decided I would just go and ask her for a cup of coffee. The rain was pouring and it was fairly cold outside. She came out (YAY) with a friend (BOO) but she left her really quickly and went her own way. So I took my courage with both hands and decided to go and ask her. I followed her (she was already kinda far away). Walked quickly and saw that I would catch her at the street corner. The light turned red so she stopped. I thought it was the perfect occasion. But as I was making up the word I would say in my head I noticed my feet moving slower and slower to finally come to a complete stop. Then I thought : "Hell I have never even talked to her. She will probably think I'm creepy or whatever." So I sat there staring at her back about 30 feet away from her... My heart was still pounding, I was soaked, the light turned back to green and I watched her walking away with no idea of the drama that had happened behind her seconds ago. It felt horrible.
Now I have only one real last chance to ask her. Don't really have the time to talk to her before either since semester is gonna be over after that. I like to think that ill do it whatever you guys say but id like to evaluate my success rate :). Ill ask her something along those line: "Humm sorry, Alice, that's your name right? This might sound really odd to you but its been a long time I'm trying to talk to
you but I never really had the chance. You look like an interesting person id like to invite for a cup of coffee one of these days and get the chance to know you." then I depending on the answer or the way the situation evolve ill probably give her my cell number and then tell her to call me if she ever wants to hang out but that if she doesn't fell like it its alright and that I understand.
How would you feel if someone would ask you something like that? Would you think its creepy, cute, stupid? Answer sincerely tough. Its easy to think that its cute in your head but in real life its a different thing (well I think).
Sorry for my crappy English, I'm French.

Just go up to her and be like "hey, have you checked out this ____ reading/homework/something related to class. because I don't really understand it and professor ____ says that you seem to be grasping the concepts rather well."
if she says something on the contrary (like if she's actually failing the class or not doing well) it will be awkward you can say something like "Oh! Well, maybe we can figure it out together over coffee?" and give her either a :) or a :D smile.
if she says "yeah sure" (meaning she is doing well) then you can say something like "cool! do you want to talk about it over coffee?"2
