    I dated a girl last week.
    First date was awesome and she was amazing.
    We immediately clicked and everything happened so fast and unexpected.
    After she asked me if we want to meet again i told her yes but i never made up a next date.
    I have probably missed the love of my life. And that is after wanting a relationship for years.
    Had i made up the next date right away who knows what would’ve happened.

    I loved a girl a lot on my office, I was really witty & made her laugh every time. But I was really not having courage to walk upto her & ask for a date. But things changed drastically & my best friend become her bestie since I was out everytime. Now I went up to her asked her out, but she didn’t got angry. But later on things turned worse due to my own stupidity, I had to apologise to her. But I think I lost the love of my life. How should I recover, please help.
