Forget em, a good memory for misfortune only leads to grey hair and ulcers.

I'll forget at some point, as I did with F.

Speaking of which, I was browsing YouTube and I saw a comment on some video posted by F's twin sister. Very strange coincidence.

F has a twin sister? Surely this world can not get any weirder. I can only wonder why there would be two of those things.

They're non-identical though, and while F is good at maths, the other seems not to do as well academically...

But she might be saner in general.

She does look and sound saner...

You know her?

Last year I've seen her a couple of times around my school, hanging around with a guy from my physics class, but no I don't know her -- I don't think she knows my name, even.

Okay, she is probably not a good prospect for you because of her sister.

I need to get some sleep, see you later.

She goes to another sixth form now so I wouldn't have been able to see her anyway...

Okay, see you later.

You could walk up to her and break the ice with this line, "Hi, I know your sister. She is really goofy but you already know that. Let's go out."

The problem is 'walk up to her'. She does not go to my school, she may even go to a school in Cambridge because her sister went there.

You have seen her, therefore she was close enough. That is all it takes.

She does not even know my name, and I'm not particularly interested in dating her... and just imagine how awkward it would be seeing F.

Those are other considerations. Just talking about a possible encounter.

That encounter is impossible, though...

Maybe for the other reasons but not physically impossible.

Winning the lottery is also not impossible.

That is impossible but girls are approachable. The fact that you mentioned this sister might mean you have something for her.

Approachable? Oh yes, I am surely going to bump into a girl who is 50 miles away and potentially even in Scotland. I think I'll go see her now, England is such a small place I'm sure I'll find her easily.

But she was not 50 miles away. You noticed her, you even noticed who she hangs with. Sometimes, we do not know whom we are interested in until it happens.

Going to eat, see you in a bit.

I'm not interested in her, she just reminded me of F... I also only saw her because she used to go to my school, just like F. However, it looks like she is retaking a year at some school that is very far away.

Okay, see you later.

That is good, since she probably has the same kooky genes her sister does.

Who knows, maybe F found H and they are now in a deeper relationship.

For a couple of them you have talked about I can only say that running into this guy would be fitting,
