I'll follow you until you love me.

Sometimes the lines between reality and dreams can become blurred in one's mind, and they don't even realise it happening.
Hair washed, legs shaved, nails painted, eyebrows plucked and makeup done, this time she was ready. Last time she'd seen him she hadn't been expecting it, she hadn't made a special effort, but this time she was prepared. She knew where he worked, she knew where he'd been last night and the night before, she'd found him on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, and had followed his every move. This wasn't like falling for a singer or someone on the telly, they didn't even know she existed, but he did.
They'd bumped into each other on the street last month, literally in fact, as he was talking on his phone and she was wandering in a dream, as usual. He'd apologised profusely, ending his phone call straight away. He helped her pick up the things that had been knocked onto the ground, and looked right into her eyes and smiled. He was all she had thought about ever since. Sometimes she thought she was going mad, the things she imagined them doing together, the life she could imagine them having, but anything was possible, that was a saying wasn't it, and it must've been said throughout history for a reason right?
So there she is, outside his building, checking the time on her phone. He'll be leaving work any minute, her eyes are fixed on the door. She's written her number down on a scrap of paper, hoping to slip it into his hand, and maybe turn and look back at him, smiling sexily as she walks off into the crowd. The door opens and her heart pounds, but it's someone she doesn't know. She checks the time on her phone again. Any minute now. Her eyes sweep through the crowd, and fix on a girl about her age. This girl looks effortlessly gorgeous, and she can feel the envy in her throat. This girl probably wakes up looking that good, she probably doesn't have to try at all. Not like her, it took her two hours to get ready today, and all for him. The door opens again, it's him, even more perfect than she remembers. Her heart's pounding and she feels sick, but she can't back out now, she's come all this way. He's got a little smile on his face, and she feels her own break into a grin. She walks towards him, smiling and fluttering her eyes.
He's not looking at her though. His eyes look straight past her, not even a flicker of recognisation. He doesn't remember her, he truly doesn't. He's all she's thought about for over a month, and she means nothing to him. No, she tells herself, she's over reacting, he just hasn't noticed her in the crowd. If she gets a bit closer he'll spot her and remember. But he's turning away from her, smiling at that perfect girl. He puts his arm round her and kisses her tenderly, before they start to walk away. She watches them through bleary eyes. She didn't spot a girlfriend on his social media, not a trace, she thought he was the one. They've disappeared into the crowd. She'll never see him again now. She turns and starts to walk away, crumpling the scrap of paper up in her hand. She drops it in a nearby bin, realising he may mean the world to her, but she is nothing to him.

I can see this happening many times over. Especially to someone who is lonely and thinks they have a connection that really only exists to them.
Two small things: second paragraph they bump into each other on the street, but her things fell on the floor? Also, "swivel". The first time "Her eyes swivel through the crowd," maybe: her eyes swept the crowd? Swivel is usually a turning, circling kind of motion. You use it again: "His eyes swivel straight past her" Maybe: his eyes looked straight past her? I know looked is kind of bland or simple, but I think it works here. All in all, this piece is well written and the narrator's feeling and observations are spot on for this piece. Nicely done.
