I have a spot that I usually sit at during church, week end and out the same spot. It provides me a good view of the congregation and allows me to peak out the door seeing anybody who is walking in the halls either late or leaving the ward before mine.
Yesterday I was walking into the chapel and the guy that has been the bane of my existence was sitting in my row, talking to a guy. I saw him, waved and then proceeded to sit two rows back from normal.
I thought that he would just talk to the guy and then leave to go sit up with his clique that he sits with every week now. He did go up to talk to his clique and then he returned to the spot that he was sitting.
I sat there and thought a few things.
Did he purposely sit there so that I would sit next to him?
It was just a happenstance and he just decided to sit there instead of his usual spot with his clique?
Did I send him a wrong message by sitting away from him on purpose, even though I have been wishing that he would acknowledge me in some way (since he joined this clique, I have fallen off his social radar, but he did ask me to say the closing prayer, so at least he did think of me ever so briefly.)
Did I just blow a huge chance?
But he could of easily said HI to me too, he did go and acknowledge his clique.
So what are your thoughts on the above situation?
