Well, you already blew your first shot by not taking advantage of the last interaction. How regularly do you expect to see her?For those in the audience
What you should try to do 'next time' (as in, the next time some random chick recognizes you and walks up to talk to you) is as follows. It doesn't matter if you remember her or not, in fact its kind of good if you don't.
As soon as you determine that you find her attractive (it literally takes seconds to process in a dude's brain), ask to meet up with her sometime and someplace casual. Since the context was you hadn't seen her in a long time, "catching up" would make for a perfect excuse. Don't do it immediately, ask progressive questions like "What brings you here?" (it doesn't matter if the answer to the question is obvious) and other shit to maintain a solid (but casual) conversation. Then be like (even if its a lie) "I have some errands I'm in the middle of, but let's meet up for lunch in a few days."
Note the phrasing. Its technically a request, but its phrased like a statement.Important note
Stay calm and talk slowly. Its much better to stutter a few words cuz nerves than it is to spill your spaghetti.
