Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

geek from school

A guy from my HS has sent me an email.
He was in my school 15 years ago.
He was a strange nerd. I talked to him only a couple of times. I liked him but he was so unpopular that I couldn't go talk to him. On the other hand he didn't have the balls to make an advance.

What would you do in my shoes?

ps

I am asking you because I was told that this is a geek forum.

"What would you do in my shoes?"

What would you do about what?  Does he want to meet for something.  I dont know, this is just me.  But people I havent spoken to in 15 year are one step above complete strangers.  Who knows what this guy is after.  I would send an email or two, but would not overly excited or anything to meet.

So, are you single or what?

So many contradictions in that post.

"He was a strange nerd. I talked to him only a couple of times."

You call him strange, and then say you barely knew him.  Well, duh.  Why are you freaking out so much ahead of time.  Why do women in particular do this?  (Interestingly, some don't).  Just gets back to a typical scenario where the guy is having to do everything and then somehow getting blamed for that.

If you want to stay single forever, I would advise brushing him off.  How's that?

I agree with Bot. Send the guy an email, see what's he's been up to. Maybe he's changed for the better.

Not enough info.

Are you a girl? A girl he was interested in?

He sent you an email? What did it say? Does he want to meet? Is he checking if you know about the reunion because he is working on the committee?

Have you responded to the email?

Why is this a big deal for you anyway?

Recommendation, assuming he just sent an email saying hi:

"Hi Joe, what you up to? I've been fine. Living in Atlanta the last few years, as you can see from my MySpace. Nice to hear from you. Take Care. Susie"

Some awkward nerds in high school grow up to be cool people.  Give it one try.  Just pray he's not still a desperate nerd and will latch on to you.

This is what high school reunions are for.
