Dear Straight Talk: I’m a junior and small for my age. I would like to ask this girl to prom, but she is quiet and I can’t tell if she likes me or not. I’ve never asked a girl out and don’t understand how guys get up the nerve. My friends are hopeless geeks and no help. Is it OK to ask her on Facebook? I don’t have her phone number. How have other less-popular guys handled asking a girl out? — Shy guy in Lodi
Taylor, 17, Santa Rosa: If she’s shy, don’t make it a big production. Do something quiet but meaningful. Bring flowers, or send a note to her class asking to excuse her. If you aren’t sure she likes you, you can still ask and go as friends. It’s an opportunity to get to know each other. Good luck!
