MattW Posted July 17, 2008 Share Posted July 17, 2008 Some of you may or may not be familiar with my story, but for those of you that aren't, I'll give a little background in a moment. Now, I'm kind of getting ahead of myself with this topic, because it's pretty much about a rhetorical situation. But, to be honest, I'm just bored right now, and thought I'd make this topic for the hell of it. Background: Here's the thing; I recently got back in touch with an old classmate via MySpace. I don't want to get into the technicalities of my feelings, so to put it simply, I've been, like, hopelessly in love with this girl since I met her ('course, as a kid, I was too shy to let on; she eventually got a tiny hint, but didn't seem to mind me liking her). Problems, though? Well, for one, even though she lives in a city that's only about 15-20 minutes away, during the school year, she goes to a school that's about 1.5-2 hours away. Also, for about 7-8 months, she was in a relationship with a guy that she seemed to like a lot. A few weeks (maybe a month) ago, they apparently split up. Now, I'd REALLY like to try for a relationship with this girl. This really feels almost like a "second chance" for me, since I was so shy back when we were kids. But there seems to be a LOT in the way, here... For one, she returns to school in about 5-6 weeks... Additionally, I'm concerned about either being a "rebound", or getting the dreaded "I'm not ready for a new relationship just yet". What's worse is, I have almost zero dating/ relationship experience, so I have NO idea how to try and make this work. So, I make this post asking for tips or advice about how to properly maximize my chances of making this work right. I know this is all really complicated, but it's really important to me, and I'm almost clueless as to what to do, here... Oh, I should add, I've recently sent her a message casually talking about her and I getting together in person, so I'm waiting to see how she responds. It usually takes her a while to respond via MySpace, since I don't think she gets on it all that much. Link to comment
