There is a girl on the bus that I see occasionally that gives me a sense of excitement. A real spark that few people give me. I hate knowing I only see her on the bus and nowhere else. So that limits my opportunities, and she is never sitting close by. I’ve decided I’m going to get off the bus when she does and approach her. I’m nervous about this and don’t want to come off as a creepy weirdo, but I have to do it. I missed a chance to do this two days ago, and afterwards felt really angry with myself. I truly felt like screaming and punching a wall. That told me the feeling of NOT approaching her is worse than the nerves of doing so. Not approaching means you live not knowing what could’ve happened. If you’re rejected, so be it. At least you tried. I got a haircut today, shave regularly and have good skin. I’m in the best condition I could be now to look appealing. So if I see her again (she’s not always on my bus) I am going to do this. I think I’m just going to be direct. Say something like “excuse me, hey, I’ve seen you on the bus and have been wanting to say hello, my name is....” If I need a backup line I will say I like her coat (she always wears it). I’ll be able to see how she reacts to me if I at least engage her. I’m nervous the most about this part - saying if she works in the city like me and if so how about we catch up for lunch, and I give her my number. I’d like to hear what other users think about this. I feel like I have to do it, otherwise I’ll be dying inside.
