There's a girl who I constantly keep thinking of. Just a friend, kinda. We met through a volunteer thing about 8 years ago and we volunteer there every year (it's a week long camp thing).
I've had a 'crush' (I know it's not the most appropriate term for a guy in his 20s to use but eh) since I first met her. At first, I was able to talk to her with no problem. But as the years went by and I saw her, I grew more and more shy and rarely talked to her.
We've talked briefly every once in a while but on social media, which sadly is when I'm confident enough to talk to her.
However, even though I haven't talked to her in several months, I still think about her. I originally invited her about 4 months ago to have lunch but because of our conflicting schedules, it never happened.
I've been wanting to say something but I feel like I'd just be a 'creep' if I tried to reignite things (for lack of a better word) with her after so long. She is single, I know this. But still busy.
Is it a bad thing that I still think about her after all this time? I'm not obsessed with her as I don't think about her 24/7 and I don't turn down other women because of her. Every time I see her name pop up on social media or I see her name (it's kinda a rare first name), she immediately comes to mind.
I would love to ask her out (and get the courage to do so lol) but like I said, I invited her to lunch a few months ago and she did agree but because she was busy, it never happened and I kinda just lost touch with her shortly after. I know for a fact she's still busy with nursing school and I'm busy with a full time job and school now so I'm sure you can imagine how much of a conflict it'll be to find a time to meet, if the opportunity ever presented itself. TBC..
I'm just putting myself in her shoes. But I'm not a girl so I don't know everything lol.
So yeah, I hope you understand where I'm coming from. I REALLY do hope to make something happen, I just don't want to go the wrong way about it, if that makes any sense.

Go ahead and ask her out, give her two options put yourself out there woman do like to be pursued in the right way. If she doesn't give you a direct response move on because you tried. You don't have anything to lose. And besides this will help clarify where you stand with her so you can move forward. Don't stay stuck.1
