How do I tell him this?

Here is my story. I'll try to make it as short as I can!


I recently joined eH. I opened this guy's profile and realize that I knew him. We met briefly once and he hasn't mentionned anything so I don't think he remembers. He works with my best friend and she only had good things to tell about him. He initiated contact, I was reluctant to do so for a couple of not so good reasons! I really want to get to know him better.


We just started Open Communication and I am wondering if and when I should tell him about this mutual friend and how to do so without sounding like a weirdo :). I want him to know because we all go to the same university and I don't want to end up in a situation where I meet him while I am with my friend (who doesn't know that I am on eH) because then, what am I suppose to do (wheter he recognized me or not)? OK, that was a long sentence! I'm just trying to get my thoughts organized since I don't want to ruin this.


So here it is, should I tell him straight away in my first email or wait till the 2nd or 3rd one? And if I wait, what do I do if we happen to cross paths (my best friend and I are pretty much together all the time as we are in all of the same classes).


Thank you so much for your imput!

Hmmm...I dont see the big deal. Tell him. Say "OMGoodness, what a coincidence! We've met before!" and explain it and thats that.
