You should drink and see what happens. It's more interesting that way.
This guy has a point. Alcohol can help you do and say things you'd normally be too scared to say. A few years ago I decided to get a bit tipsy in school and I ended up holding this girl's hand that I really liked. Luckily, she didn't do what I had been paranoid about - flinch, throw my hand off and make a bit of an awkward scene. Instead, she held my hand back and smiled subtly, and that was how the relationship started. Romantic or what?
Anyway, unless it's painfully clear that she will never be into you then I think you should see her as much as you can if you don't know her that well already (e.g. say hello to her once every day or something, and make sure you smile when you happen to be around her). If she knows you're crazy about her then perhaps she just needs to spend more time with you and get to know you. One of the best ways to make a girl become attracted to you is to tell them that you are interested in them. Works provided you're not ass-ugly, you have a normal personality, and you see them atleast three times times a week. By the way, I don't mean follow her around every day and act like a complete creep, but quite the opposite.
However, if she already knows you really well and you've already seen her a lot (i.e. she's a fairly close friend in your 'group' & well acquainted) then there probably isn't much point in trying and you should go for someone else. I'm not saying there would be no chance in this scenario, but it's difficult for a girl to see someone as more than a friend when they've stopped judging them as a potential romantic partner. In other words, it is difficult to form a healthy relationship when you're in the 'friend zone' (I hate that term but it's true). And just to clarify - both genders have a 'friend zone'; she might be in yours and you haven't even realised it.
