It was some years ago now, six or seven to say the least.. art class for whatever reason was shared between the minor niners and us tenth graders, she was a year younger than me. She was beautiful. She had a way about her, she was rather delicate, her mannerisms were very gental. She would wear this comb in her hair sometimes, not the kind that you'd see brandished in the afros of some black men but it was the kind that looked like it should be made of jade and it was very ornate. I always looked forward to seeing her everyday. I don't exactly remember what kind of chit-chat we would have, I guess it was mostly about classroom shinanigans. Whenever I needed a pencil of sorts, out of everyone in the whole class, I would get up from my work table and walk to the other side of the room just to borrow one from her, to which she would respond shyly of course, but she would give up a perfect pencil everytime just as soon as I had asked. I liked her, I didn't know it at the time, I was busy being too cool to express even to myself how I had felt for her. I probably could've had her if only I had asked. Her name was Chantelle, I think about her a lot, I think about what could've been had I only been able to understand what was going on in my own heart.

Wouldn't call it Unrequited if you never asked her, especially if she was a bit "shy" when you talked to her, probably dug you and would have tolerated a date or three, probably more if you were a right proper gent.

All a matter of getting the guts up to ask. You'll probably never know if it was a one-sided thing though.

That's the thing, I'll never know because I never asked. She was shy yeah, but I believe that that was just her way as opposed to anything else. It was one-sided as far as I know.

That's what stalking is for. If someone rejects you, stalk them until they come around. Haven't any of you watched Gintama?

At the time yes, but I've never been the type to play games so I guess that I just kinda "liked" her and I left it at that.

I dropped out of high school at the end of grade 10 to work as a tradesman (no regrets) so I don't know what became of her after that semester. However, out all of the women that I liked, loved and dated since then, she's the only one that still seems to linger in my mind, the only one that I really long for.

I'm not on the facebooks or anything, I never did pickup that social media thing.. *no one has to worry about me stalking anyone* lol

I'd never dare to go bother Mr. Carboni about her, something about that doesn't sit right with me, it would be out of character.
I do hope to run into her someday, then I could tell her about how I felt and how I feel.

...and about your guy, just go for it, trust me.

The only reason she sticks out so much to you is because you have the "I wonder how things could have been?" question stuck in your head.

The girls I remember from my school days the most are the ones where I also never asked or where things were about to happen but something got in the way. In my opinion it is simply because of the fact that we don't know what could have happened that we dwell on it so much. We end up just starting to ask more questions about it like "was she the one and I missed my chance?" or "would my life be different if I had just asked her?". It's better to just say "who cares?" and go to sleep. But that's just me.

I get what you're saying but there was other girls who I liked before and after I met her, only thing is I never think "what if" about them... she's the exception

What the hell are you looking for? Advice, an explanation ?

Here, this lady sounds like she is describing you:
http://www.ted.com/talks/helen_fisher_tells_us_why_we_love_cheat.html

Warning note:
Mid way she begins talking about females and their rise in the job industry. She gets back on topic later on.

It's just a thread for everyone to share similar stories and comment, reflect or inspire as we like.
I'll have to take a look at that vid when I have some time

sounds a bit like you're idealizing/romanticizing someone you barely knew.

it's true that I barely knew her but I did not exagerate any of my words when describing how I remember her or how I felt about her.

When you live life by keeping most people at arms length, "barely knowing someone" is usually all you've got to go by..

Well who knows.. Maybe she has thought about you these seven years as well? haha, that's one thing to think about, that might be very optimistic, but if you really would go out of your way to try one more time.. I say try to find her, go to where ever she might be and try once more, if she declines or accepts, then you at least know the answer to your question, it's worth a shot and probably better than just dwelling on the "what if" or "would this work/not work" questions.
But I really do understand your position, if I were in your shoes and saw this post which I'm writing right now, I would probably not go for it, even though it is the logical one -.-
