I have wanted to approach the guy i liked for the longest time, but its so hard. I've liked him for so many months now and have gotten almost nowhere. weve talked a few times and he's even told me that i can always talk to him but i always dart past because i get so socially anxious, shut down, and never know what to say. he's stopped trying to come up to me because my anxiety gets so bad that i seem unapproachable. i need to come up with some sort of plan but i have no ideas. he's always surrounded by friends.

Just text him if you're superb shy. If he knows what he's doing. He will ask you out if he genuinely likes you1

I had this problem in high school too. Start small with just a smile and "hey" every time you pass him. Making eye contact helps.
When you start to feel a little more comfortable, plan a few possible things to chat about (casual things) in advance. Then just try to remember he's a (nice) guy who has invited you to talk to him. You're not doing anything wrong or embarrassing; you're just being nice back and being yourself.
He might even approach you first if he's sees you're approachable again from the smiles.
You can do it! :)1
