I bumped into a girl recently that I haven’t seen for a few years. It was great, not awkward at all and we chatted like we’d seen each other yesterday. She’s pretty, intelligent, articulate, all you would want from a partner.
When we originally met, we’d share jokes, funny stories and general life observations about what was going on with us. We were friends, it was cool.
I didn’t think too much of it, other than I enjoyed catching up with her.
Our most recent meeting finished with her confessing to me that she’d always liked me but had never had the courage to say anything about it.
I was surprised to say the least. Whilst an immensely cool and honest thing to say, it could have been said years ago, right?
It immediately struck me though that too much of us are like that, definitely me included. This may sound very grandiose but surely life is too short to worry about the thought of someone saying no to you?
She definitely should have asked the question, I might have said yes and things in both of our lives could have been very different?
That said, I’ve seen a chance potentially pass us by, is it too late for anything?. Maybe not, who knows what the future holds? Don’t be too scared to ask the question, or indeed, answer yes to the question.
Ask me again?
