Talked to two girls today


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!

Congrats!

For that first girl in class how did you find out she had a bf? Because I find that sort of thing really hard. I'd get stuck in smalltalkville forever and never find out anything as personal as whether she has a bf.

I'd also be proud of myself if I did that!
I thought I was one of the only people who feels weird around couples (apart from family) even if they're just walking around or even if they start talking to me first. It's strange...
