    so ive seen this guy walking around the college campus i go to for the past year and half and some times we have looked at each other. anyway getting to the point, i find him very attractive, we went to the same juniors and secondary school but never really spoke. im really shy but am trying to combat this, i would like to speak to him but would i come off as creepy if i said "hey, i know you from some where...your names (his name) right? we used to go to juniors etc together" but what happens if; 1. hes not interested in me and finds me repulsive. 2- if he doesn't know who the heck i am and 3.if he has a girlfriend already. is it a ridiculous idea? should i just try and forget about him? but he will leave the college in june after hes finished his second course of A levels so their would only be a short time for me to do this. please give me advice, thank you

    Don't tell anyone else but this is what I use "Hey". Very secret meaning much shh shh. You could try dropping some of your **** next to him, and he'll hopefully help pick it up and then it's all an adventure from then on..

    He's going to know who you are if he went to your school. Don't say "I know you from somewhere" because you obviously know where you know him from if you know is name so it sounds weird.

    I think when you went to school with someone and you want to use that as a conversation starter, you have got to do it straight away. If you have been walking past him for a year and a half, it is not like you have only just realised so it doesn't sound natural. I think you need to come up with a better conversation starter. Once you have got talking, then you can bring in the school chat.

    As for for the what ifs, that is a chance you take. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
