    So I get to the gym today at about 10 and I start benching and doing upperbody for about an hour an a half and at this point me and my upperbody are just cashed. So I am getting ready to leave and this gorgeous guy who i have been seeing a lot at the gym lately shows up so I decide to stick around for a littl longer. It turns out too that I know this guy and I went to gradeschool with him but we never talked and then we went to different highschools so I haven't seen him in a while, so to just go up to him and ask him if he remembers me seemed a little awkward to me. Anyway so my dumbass decides to start benching again close to where he is and what eventually happens? I can't get the weight up anymore so I'm laying there trying to get his attention and eventually he sees me and helps me and I say "thanks man" and I was going to ask him if he went to my gradeschool because he looked familiar but he kind of just walked away. He had his headphones on so I think he just didn't hear me. I'm sure i'll see him tomorrow at the gym and I don't know if I should thank him again and try to talk to him or just drop it and act like it never happened..suggestions?

    It never hurts to make conversation, regardless of where it leads. If it turns out he's in no way interested in polite chit-chat at the gym, at least you made the attempt.

    I would go up to him and say thanks again. Then ask him about the grade school thing. See if you can start any conversation out of just that

    Absolutely, I agree with the others. You have a great way to start the conversation since he did you a favor.
    You can even tell him you had been working out for some time and were tired and really appreciated his help. When he finds out you went to the same grade school, theres a lot to talk about........

    You got your answer right there, hes not particularly interested.

    leave it be, if the chance happens naturally so be it, otherwise forget about it.
