_Scarlett_ Posted October 16, 2011 Share Posted October 16, 2011 Hey, I need some advice. Two years ago when I started college I met a guy. Sort of. He was in two of my classes, we noticed each other, there was some flirting... We didn't talk much though, maybe a couple of times, he was crazily shy. When I did talk to him, he'd blush and stutter, conversation just.. didn't happen. But I loved the flirting, he was so adorable, so adorable... Eventually though, I got a boyfriend in that same college. When that happened, soon the guy I was crushing on saw us together and from then on started acting as though I no longer existed to him... Even when I was standing directly in front of him, he would deliberately avoid looking at me... Ridiculous, really. It didn't matter what I did, he would do everything in his power to not see me. But I never stopped having that crush on him, I just figured... Well, if he wasn't going to approach me and talk to me, why stay single? I honestly regret it now... I can be so stupid. But at the time I thought he just wasn't that into me. Maybe I was right, I still don't know. Fast-forward to now... I'm not at that college anymore, so we don't see each other. I was messing around on Facebook and saw his name among my friend recommendations... Cue a mini freak out. What to do!? My profile isn't that fantastic, I don't have many friends, there's not much going on there. Unlike me, he's quite popular in general. His shyness only seemed to extend to... well, me. Loud and outgoing with his friends, barely able to get a word out when I asked him a question. Anyway, I feel kinda lame in comparison to him and my bleh profile - for some reason - only made that worse, so instead of simply friending him, I sent a private message to him. I said, along the lines of: Hey, I saw you in my friend rec's just now, was going to add you but figured I'd message you in case you don't remember me I was in [our shared classes] with you about a year ago, but we never did really get the chance to talk. Add me if you don't mind talking sometime Three days later... nothing. Did I piss him off that much? Not likely, but I didn't say I wanted to go out with him, I didn't even say I liked him, I just said we should talk sometime - why simply ignore me? I don't know whether to just give up and move on (again), or send a friend request anyway. Leave him alone? Give it a try? Idk... Advice? Link to comment
