I'm 19 and for as long as I could remember, I could never seem to fit in with the people of my generation. I've met some pretty great people my own age but for the most part, I feel like I connect very little with other 19 year-olds. A majority of the ones I'm exposed to either smoke, drink or party every week. Whereas I spend my Friday nights reading, playing music (guitar and bass), and meeting up with friends on occasion.
I'm at a point mentally get back out there and give dating a try after being single for nearly a year. I've been to social gatherings and as sad as it sounds, tried different dating apps. I met some great people, but I haven't had any luck meeting anyone I've been interested in romantically.
Nearly a month ago I found this girl my age on Instagram who posts these amazing and powerful works of art on her page. I was really impressed and moved by her work so decided to follow her. Not only is she a talented artist, but she's beautiful as well. I would love to send her a message and try to start a conversation, but her account says that she's a freelance artist and only accepts messages for business inquiries only. Another "issue" is that she lives in Tampa which is almost 3 hours from where I live, so that makes the possibility of meeting her in person very slim.
Since I can't message her I'm left having to only admire her art and the captions she writes. The more I do this and the more I learn about the kind of person she is through Instagram, the more drawn to her I get. I know that sounds stupid, but it's true. The only way I could think to try and talk to her is through Snapchat. Her username is in her bio but I don't use Snapchat.
If I could get some insight on this, I would appreciate it. Should I attempt to talk to her on SC? or let all this go without even trying.
