In summary, this girl works at my university's food court as a cashier. I always make small talk with her but I haven't really gotten the chance to really know her since I always have a line of people behind me. She is pretty nice, but being nice is a must since she's a cashier after all. I would like to ask her out for coffee or something like that, but I don't know how.

I'm an engineer major and since, yes, the stereotype is true, engineers are not very good at asking girls out; I don't know how to do it without looking and sounding so awkward.

Show her your outgoing side. Stare at her shoes when you talk to her. BaZING! :biggrin:

Just ask her to a coffee after her shift.

There's no special way that will give you more success than simply asking.
There's also no special way that will make it easier if she says no.

It's like jumping into a pool. No matter how long you wait, or what contortions you do getting in, the water won't get any warmer. So just jump. And have fun.

I lived near NASA growing up and we had more engineers per capita than anywhere I can think of. They were not shy, they were not afraid of asking a girl out (and they had a a huge amount of competition).

I agree with Dave, ask her out, if she says no, no big deal move on.

So tell him how they asked you!

Then that will solve the biggest of his 3 problems.

The first is breaking the ice, but he has already done that. The third is those people behind him in the line. Maybe the place has a slack time?

And as it will with your help be done in friendly way, he goes past the same cashier regularly and can go at a crowded time and smile friendly and say hello but also glance back at the next people :oldwink: but ask again after a week or two. She will have thought about it then.

Don't worry about being awkward, it shows that you don't do that everyday and not for everybody. It can pay !

Just do it! I did it last night. I had noticed this cashier at the local grocery store. I've seen her 4-5 times and made small talks 2 times. Last night I walked up straight to her and asked if she wanted to go out for a coffee with me. She said she would if she didn't already have a boyfriend. I accepted it. Thanked her for being direct and moved on. I didn't get her but I certainly got back my confidence.
Asking out a cashier in a busy store takes guts and I did it so that mean I have guts! Dude, just do it. It will make you feel much better no matter what the answer will be. You will be proud of yourself for doing that. Get it out of your system. Otherwise it will just rot and make you miserable.
Best of luck!

You should probably slip her a note. It can be embarrassing to get a question like that when you're working and have customers waiting on you. Then she can either politely reject you, or accept without feeling pressure of being at work and around other people.

Related to How can I ask the cashier girl at my university's food court out for coffee?

1. Can I ask a cashier girl out while she's working?

It is generally not recommended to ask someone out while they are working, as they may feel uncomfortable or pressured to say yes. It is best to wait until they are off duty to ask them out.

2. How do I know if the cashier girl is interested in me?

Pay attention to her body language and interactions with you. If she seems friendly, smiles and maintains eye contact, those can be signs of interest. However, it is always best to directly communicate and ask her if she would like to go out with you.

3. Is it appropriate to leave my number for the cashier girl?

It is generally better to ask for her number instead of leaving yours. Leaving your number can put pressure on her to make the first move, while asking for hers allows her to make the decision on whether or not she would like to pursue something with you.

4. Should I ask the cashier girl out in front of other customers?

It is considerate to ask her out in a private setting, such as when there are no other customers around. This can make her feel more comfortable and avoid any potential awkwardness.

5. What if the cashier girl says no?

If she says no, it is important to respect her decision and not pressure her further. It is also important to continue being polite and respectful when interacting with her at her place of work. Remember that rejection is a normal part of dating and it is best to move on and find someone else who may be interested in you.
