What is the protocol here?!?

So my competitive sports team started a new season a few weeks ago...and with that came 3 new male players.
One of them I INSTANTLY recognized as a guy from Match.

I think it is probably better not to bring it up. He has given you no indication that he remembers emailing you on Match. That does not mean that he doesn't, but even if he does remember, he is being cool about it. It is good that the communication stopped between you two and there was not any kind of animosity or bruised feelings. It just died away for whatever reason. I can see why the league would prefer that members do not get involved so as to not lose people and/or cause awkward games and practices. Maybe when the season ends and you still hold him in high regard you could try and test the waters again with him?

I also wouldn't mention that you had emailed on match--it could be very awkward if then he feels you are mad at him or he has to come up w/ some explanation.

Actually I was most intrigued by your value system.

It must be the hopeless romantic in me...I love these kind of meetings.
