    the one that got away

    quick backstory:
    so back when i used to go to church i used always see this cute girl and every time i see her we make eye contact, but we never spoke with each other (this has been going on for a while). i would assume that i was just imagining things and just having wishful thinking that she was looking at me, or even checking me out. a couple years later (im 19 now) i see her at a family friend’s party and we both make eye contact continuously through the night. i would catch her looking at me and she would catch me looking at her. at the bar she was behind me and we just both smiled at each other, but i bitched it and didn’t talk to her.

    now im filled with regret, so much that i found her fb and now contemplating on messaging her. i know it’s weird. i blew my chance, should i just let it go? i don’t really have experience in dating, hence why im here.

    I don’t really have a good answer for you what’s the right thing to do, but I wanted to say I feel you!

    I had similar situation with a chick when I was about 17, but I also didn’t do enough I lost her to some other dude.

    My solution was to cut all ties to her because I got so frustrated and talked down to myself everytime I saw her..
    I’m not saying this is what you should do, but just know you aint alone dude!

    (my situation was 10 years ago and I still regret bitching out when I had the chance..)

    You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. I’d rather be left on a “no,” then think “what if,” the rest of my life.

    Try to message her on facebook, who knows she’s just waiting for you to do the first move!

    “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. I’d rather be left on a “no,” then think “what if,” the rest of my life.”

    I would generally agree with this. Maybe Facebook is a little weird, but because you seem to run into her so often, you could try to approach her in person sometime.
