I’m a long time lurker, but you guys have a lot of advice in here and you seem to like helping people out, so I’m hoping you guys can help me out as well. Well to start there is this girl in my drawing class that has caught my eye since the beginning of the semester. I’m pretty sure I caught her eye too because there have been times where I would look up from doing something at my table and catch her looking straight at me. I sit in the back, so she has to turn around to look at me since she sits a ways up towards the front of the room. So, pretty much half the semester it’s been like this; I catch her looking at me, and she catches me looking at her. I don’t know, it was probably nothing, but I finally just said screw it and went and talked to her. For the rest of class we just talked about a number of things, and I made her laugh a lot. I thought things went pretty well, and I guess she liked talking to me too because now she sits next to me in class all the time. So, the last few weeks have just been great you know. We’re talking all the time, making each other laugh, and I’m just really digging this girl. However, there have been times where I’ve been hesitant on asking for her number so I could maybe invite her out somewhere you know. My experience with the ladies is pretty much zero, so I’m trying not to mess anything up right now. So last week I didn’t want to keep waiting. We only have about 3 or 4 weeks left of this class, so I told myself I wasn’t going to wait any longer and I’ll just ask her after class and hope for the best. We start chatting and walking to the parking lot after class, and at this point I’m about to ask her. Right before I was going to ask I hear her say “My boyfriend….”, and then in my head I just remember saying “SHIT”. I don’t even remember what she was talking about, but she mentioned her boyfriend and I just felt like... well, shit. So now I don’t know what the hell I’m going to do. I get these vibes from her all the time like she really likes me, and maybe I should just keep pursuing her, but in the back of my head I just keep thinking maybe I should just forget about it and leave her alone. So I dunno, what do you guys think I should do? Should I just give it a shot, although she has a boyfriend, or should I just forget about her? You guys know a lot more than I do when it comes to these types of situations, so I figured I’d come in here and get some of your opinions. And if you guys want to know any other details let me know. I’m pretty sure I didn’t cover everything, was trying to not make this such a wall of text. Thanks.
