"Hey. I was just thinking the other night and I realized something. They say you shouldn't let things like this slip through your fingers, so here goes. It's kind of random, I guess, but it hit me all the sudden how amazing of a person you are. I mean, I know we don't know each other well, and even worse, I know you're kind of crushing on someone else. But... I just thought that come next year, next semester, whatever, we may not see each other much, if at all, and I knew I had better just give this a try and hope for the best. I think that's always been my problem, I never just go for it, I always just sit in the background and... hope, I guess. I'm getting off topic. Look, I'd really like to get to know you better. I wish I had something to offer to make me a 'catch' but at the moment all I can say is that I really like you and I think it'd be great to take you out for a cup of coffee so we could just talk for a while."
