Most Helpful Guy
You are at the very least acquaintances, so a simple hello would not be out of order, assuming that this person is unmarried and not in a really awkward situation. The person who enters another's space should speak first, keeping it simple, like a simple "Hello Biebs." If the person ignores you or otherwise displays discomfort, well of course that would mean an awkward moment for him, and you should bow out without ill feeling. More than likely, if you have dated he would be delighted to see you in a chance meeting and engage you in light conversation. A smile and a hello from a pretty girl lightens any guy's day, so why be shy?
That you ask this question, though, might suggest a little insecurity on your part regarding proper etiquette in the given situation. It is nearly always okay to say at least hi to those you know, and anyone who snubbed you in such a case should explain unasked his/her behavior to you later.
Have you watched those stars and presidents waving to folks in their audience before giving a speech? Even when making a speech, those people recognize and acknowledge their friends--which may be a behavioral trait enhancing their success.0
