Both have boyfriends, but I thought this was a triumph!
I had been putting off talking to this girl in class that I think is cute (but sadly has a boyfriend), but I managed to have a short conversation with her before class. She's really nice, and even though we're not friends, I can see myself becoming friends with her.
The second girl is the girl that lives above me. The last (and only time, before now) that I talked to her was months ago, after she just moved in. She came out just as I was getting the mail today, and we had a nice conversation. Then I remembered something 20 mins later that I needed to tell her (she's having trouble with the landlord, and I remembered some advice), and caught her, this time with her boyfriend (who I had never met before.) This time I had a small panic attack, but managed to get through the conversation, and calmed down by the end of it.
I feel this is a triumph, because I generally avoid people unless I have to talk to them. I'm going to be a little more extroverted by Christmas, if my life depends on it!
