    I didn't see/I hadn't seen

    Which one is more correct to say
    The girl in blue was a complete stranger to me because ( I didn't see/ I hadn't seen ) her before.
    If both are correct do they have the same meaning if not. What does each one mean?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Only "I hadn't seen her before" works there.

    Note my corrections above, and that I have changed your thread title so it includes the words you are querying.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
