If you know where she works, send her a letter, explain yourself and ask if she'd like to meet for coffee. If you get no response back then you know you never had a chance, if you do and it's positive, you'll look brave and resourceful in many people's eyes. Private detective sounds like something you won't be able to tell many people. Which is a bummer when it comes to relationships.

Rich, you seem to have a creative mind. Think up a reason to be in her office, and go from there.

Richard, find out who she is and write her a nice but non creepy note.

A note?

If I got some random note from some random guy expressing his infatuation with me, I'd probably laugh and then tell all of my friends and be terrified of running into him, since it would be relatively anonymous unless he approached me in person.

Creeps.

Would you prefer he hired a private detective to track you down? I think this is probably the lesser of two evils.

Interesting. I've tracked down a couple of girls and emailed them as I described above. All worked out okay. OP hasn't explained if this is a total stranger who he would like to track down or someone he seen around regularly but doesn't know well enough to just call. If the guy carries himself well and the girl is single anything is possible and my suggestion is worth a shot.

Actually, this is a girl I've known for a long time. Her BFF used to have a crush on me when we were in high school. We're friends on facebook, and I could always write her a note asking her out... but that's kind of lame.

Background: About 2 years ago I saw her one night from a distance, and then sent her an email asking her out for coffee, and she said sure and gave me her phone number.

We talked on the phone one night. Next day she sent a txt and said she was with some friends at a bar/rest near where I live, and told me to come. When I got there, she had saved a chair next to her, but there was this guy sitting on her other side and I noticed something fishy about the whole thing.

We talked for about 30 minutes (I knew the guy from before, so we also talked), she asked me about a lot of things, and when the time came to pay the bill, the guy sitting next to her paid for both of them. They left together.

I wasn’t 100% sure if they were a couple, so I called her a couple of days later, asked her what she was going to do that night. She said she was going to X place with some friends. “Wanna come?” I was going there with my friends anyway, so I told her I’d meet her there.

When we got there, I saw her hanging with her friends, and this guy was among them. So they definitely were starting to go steady. Not sure if she wanted to make him jealous with me, but I don’t like to play those games so I never called her again.

I think they dated for a while, but I’m 90% sure they’re not together anymore.

So now I have a couple of choices. I could send a PM on facebook and ask out again (even though I’m not 100% sure if she’s single), but I already did that and feel it’s kind of lame.

I could also wait until I randomly meet her somewhere, strike up a conversation and ask her out. But who knows when that will happen.

Or, I could make that random meeting happen sooner rather than later by paying a couple of bucks to a PI. Then at lunch I would say hi, and if I don’t get a chance to ask her out then and there, the facebook PM wouldn’t seem so creepy (something like “Hey, really nice to c u! Is your number still the same? You still owe me a cup of coffee” or something like that).

If you know her already a PI is ridiculous. It'd make for fascinating fodder for this thread though (as long as you were forthcoming and prompt with updates).

If you don't want to send her a facebook PM, just invite her to an event you recieve on fb mentioning you thought she'd find it cool and you haven't been in touch in a while or something.

ugh. small-timers are small-time. Go get a job at the company for whom she toils and then you're sure to bump into her.

$675.

/end thread.

Feel free to PM me for details.

Hey, I would like to ask: $675 for eternal happiness? I think it a small price to pay. Certainly cheaper than those Russian mail order brides.

Bonus: you could get the PI to slip her a note that says something to the effect of :Hi, this is Richard Pryor, back from when we were in high school. Do you liek me?

I think I also wrote that based on the fact that I can kind of tell the OP isn't the kind of guy I would want doing that to me. If it was a great/attractive guy, I'd probably change my story.

Are you also going to get the PI to bang her for you? If so, $675 sounds like a fair price

This threak has potential. If you know her and have called her before just do it again.

I did almost exactly the same thing once. (More than once, truth be told.) Except the lady who caught my eye was a prostitute. And instead of paying a PI to track her down, I just approached her on the street. (Many prostitutes do not even work out of an office, but rather stand on the street to solicit business.) The money that I would have spent on the PI, I just paid directly to the prostitute. And I paid her less than I would have paid the PI. The lesson is this: if you can get good at being really attracted to prostitutes, then you can have sex with the ladies of your dreams any time you want, without having to hire private investigators to track them down.
