Alright, so on Friday I walked by this girl at my college that looked so familar I was blown away. Then, after my math class I stepped out and noticed she was sitting on the ground talking with friends, and again she looked too familar.

I'm in the belief that she's one of my good friends I grew up with when I was much younger, in 5-7th grade. I know its strange, and maybe you could argue I've dwelled over such things from the past, but oh well. At the moment I was kind of too shocked to say anything, but since then I've been determined to say something to her on Monday when I go back to school. I'm pretty sure she didn't see me at this time.

The thing is though, I'm assuming if I don't do this right it could just all come out pretty awkward. I'm just going to flat out go right up to her and say "Hey, are you so and so? Holy crap! Its me, yeah! etc" but after that I wouldn't be sure where to go with it.

So, hopefully this topic doesn't suck. I guess I just need some tips on how to re-introduce myself to someone I haven't seen in years, and make a good impression. I've realized you can't really get anything done without taking risks and trying when it comes to these types of things, so I'm pretty determined about this.

However, it may not be her. If it isn't, I'll probably be upset for that day or so but I'll get over it quickly. But I don't know, she looked SO familar.

Just be cordial about it. Excuse yourself into the conversation and say, "Excuse me, but are you ... ?" if she isn't, don't sweat it. If she is, that's great. You can just add in the typical conversation starting questions for people you don't talk to that often:

"Wow! How are you? How've you been? You still talk to ... ? So how'd high school treat you? Your parents OK?"

just find any common ground you can think of and milk it for all its worth. Even if it comes out awkward, it could make for a funny story later.

I just hope its her.

If not, bleh. Maybe I'll do this to random people, guys and girls. My Community College is just too quite and boring, last Semester I met nobody.

I hear that. Did you try the joining a club method? Sometimes there aren't any great clubs out there, but there are still people to meet. Heck, join a service club and do some volunteer work. You meet some sweet girls in those clubs.

Good luck with the girl. Seriously, the worst thing that could happen is that she isn't whom you think, and even that can be a godsend--new friend!

Ive had to do this on multiple occasions, however some of the people I know from 5th-7th grade I never talked to. When I reintroduced myself to some people, I normally say whats on my mind.

"I know this may seem completely random, but I feel like I know you from somewhere...Did you go to school at [insert your school here]?"

Its a small world dude. It will cook your noodle if you dont do anything about it. It wouldent hurt to ask

GO FOR IT!!!

That's the best advice that I can give. Rogue and Nagis already said most of it. You really don't have anything to lose, but something to gain, so go for it. Don't worry about being awkward. I've had to swallow my fears many times, and 9 out of 10 I was either right, or I met a really good person out of it.

I know what it's like to be shy. I am REALLY shy myself, until I get to know people, so...

And tomorrow is Monday, so...I WILL pester you tomorrow evening to make sure you did it.

Women like a sence of humor. You are a man who slays dragons for a living for cripe's sake. Walk up to her and say. "MAID, YOU LOOK ODDLY FIRMILLIAR, HAVE I SEEN YOU SOMEWHERE IN THE VILLAGE OF BIRTHAMAISUPOO?"

Thats when you sport your shining armor, make your steed stand on its hoofs, and scream a battlecry to really impress her. You are Epic Xeo, prove it, and conquer your fears.

*** The Above post was just a joke, trying to lighten him up a little bit*

Just relax, walk up, and ask her. Like katana said, you have nothing to loose, but something to gain...It sounds like something to be taken advantage of.

Well, its been ultimately confirmed. I guess.

If I don't do this by the end of this week, I'll do a nose dive into my desk.

**sigh** You haven't done it?

C'mon man! By the end of this week...it's only Tuesday! If you wait too long, like Bel said, it only gets harder and you might not end up doing it at all! **tackles** Do it!

I'm a nervous wreck about it.

But, tommorow! I will do it.

I don't know why I'm worried. What's strange, is I've thought about this girl recently within December / January. And I haven't even seen her in 6-7 years, then all of a sudden ... she's THERE. Thinking about it now, is like WHOA, weird.

I'm probably jumping the gun and stuff. I don't know! But, I'm in a crazy mood. So many ideas and stuff shooting through my mind.

Oh, then insomnia. Tonight will be war.

I'm taking this too extremely serious at the moment I guess. Hopefully I'll roll some good dice tommorow.

I'm pretty shy as well, but when I really get to know someone I can be quite energetic and yappy. Yay! However, I am not shy enough to not do something like this. Maybe I wouldn't if it didn't bug me. But if it's like messing me up, causing me to shoot Squirrels from a Pink Leather Coated Rocket Launcher...than yeah.

Just go and ask. If she knows you, then be like "Fuck yes!"

If not, and she goes "Like, ewwww.", or makes you feel dumb, then just leave...she's a bitch.

If it's just no, without any bad stuff attached then just whatever, man. At least you know.

You know what would be perfect? Say shes studying right? Theres no empty benches around where she is, so you sit down near her and just say "Hey."

After awhile you hsould look up and say: "Oh hey, do I know you from somewhere"?

Its worth a shot.

Days of our Lives Part 3.

Vile rage, anger, chaos, destruction, annihilation, armagedden ... nothing can describe what happened today.

WHAT THE F*CK!



I was prepared for everything, even shaved, made sure my mop head looked good, etc for today. Here's what happens, I don't see her in the halls this time. So, I'm sitting there in my Math class for an hour thinking "Oh I'm gonna do it, this will be great! Can't wait" ... then, it turns out we get out a little later than normal. I step out of the class, casually walking with my friend and frantically looking around the benches and stuff looking for her, but I didn't see her. Finally I turn around and she's going into the classroom I just left, but there's such a large group around her, and I just thought it'd be awkward to go back in that room to talk to her. Damnit all to hell. My chance was PERFECT on Monday.



I just couldn't drive myself to drill through a group of people and to go back in that room, it just seemed weird.

WHAT THE FUCKDESCTRUCTION

Uhhh.

I'll give you some pointers.

Chill out.

Think of how gratifying it will be to speak to her.

And if you wuss out this time, I'll find you and beat you with a frozen tuna.

And that, is a Promise.

**huggles** It's cool. I hope you see her tomorrow and try again.

Quite ironic though...I was approached by a very old friend I used to play ice hockey with. He goes to my school and said that he had seen me around a lot, just never had the guts to talk to me. I can't see why, we were uber good friends. He moved to another state, and is now back apparently, but still...:p

The way he described how he felt, trying to talk to me, but then not going through with it... Coming from the opposite perspective...please talk to her. You have no idea how happy I am that he had spoke to me, because to be honest, I didn't see him...so we may have missed each other.

That was me.

I went to school a little earlier today, thinking I could maybe catch her in the halls like I sometimes do, but it turned out I didn't see her at that time.

However, I knew thy time would come. She goes in the same Math room I leave, so it was inevitable. Math gets out, I step outside of the room ... look across the hall and see her there sitting on the bench alone. I oddly went up to her and just said "Is your name ...?" ... "Yeah! What was your name again?" ... "Steven" ... "OH YEAH!"

It was somewhat saddening she didn't recall my name.

But, its been 6-7 years so, I can't blame her. But her eyes like exploded, and I could definitely tell she recongnized me, and had probably even saw me before at school but didn't say anything herself. And her "Oh yeah!" was like something you'd hear the Koolaid guy.

So, I kind of lost my cool. Kind of choked up a bit here and there ... which was embarassing, egads. I threw out a lot of "Heh, yeah" but she seemed extremely nice, cheerful, and brought up a few subjects. We just talked about being tired, our classes, how her back hurt, how she's ahead of me and Math and what she though of Intermediate Algebra and stuff ...

But, here's what sucked. "Well I better go" we just had like, a few minutes to talk. And it'll probably be like that until something comes up ...

I'm thinking maybe on Monday, or Wednesday, I'll just ask if she has a break sometime during the day. And maybe we can get together then, or something? Good idea? Lunch? (at the school, taking her out so soon would probably be weird).

I don't want to scare her or anything, but hopefully I can make this more than a casual "Hello" in the halls relationship ...

By now, I'm sure most of you can probably say I'm obsessive. Oh well. That's how I am. >______________>

**UBER tackles** You did it!!!

Nah, nothing obsessive about it. Hell, when Luigi(yes, that's his name) came up to me, by the end of the conversation, we exchanged numbers, screen names, and I told him that he was coming with me sometime this weekend to see a movie, since I was going anyway with a few people that Luigi and I grew up with... He said that I haven't changed. XD I guess it was a little easier though. He and I bonded through the broken bones and fist fights we'd get into after the games. Not with each other. :p We would stick up for each other when someone picked on one of us.

I'm still kinda in awe how ironic this is. :p You're posting about this and then I go to school and some guy comes up and says hi to me. XD

I'm sooo glad you did it though. Definitely ask her if she has any of the same breaks as you and catch up! I'm rooting for ya! Teehee.
