    okay fasten your metaphorical seatbelts because it's story time ok so today I went to the gym way later than I normally do (I normally get there at 6AM, today I went at 11AM) and I saw someone who is in one of my small classes (of about 6 people). I didn't actually look at them because I never look at people in the gym and secondly because I look like a mess because I don't shower before going to the gym (who the frick does that?) so my hair is kinda bed-hairy, which makes me look like a hobo.
    Basically, I kinda just spent my rest and recovery on my phone looking at mushrooms while he and his friend worked out. I felt too awkward to say hi because I looked like ****, he was with his friend and don't talk much in lessons. I feel kinda bad if I think about it because he might have taken it badly (that I blanked him and that I hate him for no reason). Should I message him on snapchat asking if he went to the gym or is that too weird or should I just forget about it and assume that they didn't recognise me, hence why they didn't say hi or anything, or should I accidentally bump into him again at the gym and act all surprised like "oh i didn't expect you to be here, did you happen to be here last tuesday? oh I wasn't 100% sure it was you hahahah"
    Thanks for the advice on this very crucial matter thx

    If it is bothering you, you could just message him like "was that you at X gym today" and if he says yes just say "oh, wasn't sure and didn't wanna risk talking to a random person"

    It's not overthinking, it's intense analysing.

    Tbh I do the same thing when I see someone I know anywhere I'm not expecting them. I do it not because I don't like them, just because I don't want to experience that cringey small talk

    "oh look it's you fancy seeing you here"
    "oh yeah just out doing a bit of shopping, lovely weather today"
    "yeah it is lovely isn't it"
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    "well best be off now"

    exactly, we barely ever talk so the only thing we'd say would be cringey stuff like "oh how are the kids" or something like that and then it would be awkward

    You didn't talk to him, he didn't talk to you. It's no big deal.
