Why are both of us so scared of rejection? I see this pretty lady almost every day as I come plus go from our flat but have this fear of talking to her because I am afraid she will reject me. But if I say nothing then I think that it will haunt me plus make me into a more bitter lady because I think that our fears are stronger than me. So I have to get the nerve to say something without sounding like a nervous fool. What do you suggest? Just go up plus talk to her, right? The Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company where she works is located a couple doors from our flat plus I see her sitting outside on the curb with her friend each day. I did get the nerve to say hi to her the other day plus she responded with a cheerful hello plus a huge smile. Maybe I’ll go to the store plus buy a HEPA filter or something for our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system that I don’t entirely need. I think I just overthink things too much plus it leads to a type of paralysis in action. My Dad calls it analysis paralysis when you guess about something too much plus allow it to conquer you. I’ll go to that Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company this week plus talk to the pretty lady plus see what happens. I think I’ll just ask her if she wants to be friends plus not beat around the bush. It’s exactly what I would have done when I was a several year old boy, so why is it so hard to do now?
