So I finally got the b@lls to talk to this girl at school. I tapped her on the shoulder and was like.
Me: Hey you're on the volleyball team huh?
Me: Oh hey I'm _____ what's your name?
Me: Well I thought you were cute so I wanted to talk to you.
Me: Where are you going.
Me: Which way you going?
Her: just straight
Me: okay well I'll see you around.
I was so nervous I don't even remember the eye contact or body language. I just know I was talking like I was nervous... and it was a quick convo. She as with her friend also so I was more nervous...
What's next am I screwed or should I talk to her next week still... What do I talk about?!?!?!?! I'm so new to this and I'm a senior at high school...

The next day, tell her that you feel like a total idiot for the way you approached her. Ask her if you can both pretend that it never happened. She will say "yes." At which point, you need to think fast. This is the part that will determine if you date her, or if you go down in flames.
"Well listen, I am going to the beach to play volleyball with some friends this weekend... if you aren't doing anything, you should come along."
If she shoots you down without hesitating, then don't waste your time. But if she stalls for even a second say, "Common, I really need to make it up to you after that horrible fiasco I put you through the last time I tried to talk to you" at which point she might give you a shot.
If she politely says no, I wouldn't take that as rejection. It might be that she just feels awkward and is very, very, very interested in not feeling awkward anymore.2
