Don't tell her you like her, or whatever. If the girl doesn't have that kind of feeling, you'll likely be turned down.
However, just because she doesn't feel that way now, doesn't mean she can't feel that way later.
Whatever works for you. I was younger, inexperienced, and wouldn't have taken your advice back then - and if I were in the same situation right now, I still wouldn't. Just not my style.
