Talked to a guy that I like


So a guy ("Mark") that I like invites me regularly to events on Facebook. (He invites a lot of people). Usually I don't go-either because it's inconvenient or because I am scared that I won't know what to say to him and it will be awkward.
So tonight I finally decided to go to a lecture that Mark had invited me to. I saw him, and at first I felt really shy and wasn't sure if I would be able to talk to him. I wasn't sure if he was avoiding me (he didn't come up to say hello). Finally after a lot of standing around and trying to make sure I didn't say hello in an awkward way, we somehow walked near each other at the right moment and said hello (I guess I probably walked near him first). In any case, we spoke for a few minutes and he said I should come more often to the events that he runs. That was really nice.
Then, after I got home, I saw that Mark sent me a FB message thanking me for coming. It was really nice. I don't know if anything will ever happen romantically, but I decided that I would like to be friends even if he is not interested in me romantically.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes and encouragement! These kinds of things are really difficult for me and I definitely could use the emotional support.
