to your first question... I wouldn't leave GAG as my last resort for answers. I may use it as a resource but I also know taht I can turn to my friends, family, girlfriend etc for advice
as for your specific situation... Stop just saying hi. Strike up a conversation. Apologize for blowing him off, explain why you did it and that it was a mistake. But honestly you did completely blow him off so if I were him I'd probably not be very responsive to you saying hi.0
