guys and fake cappucino

So, Saturday I got out of the apartment with my friend Don and while he was checking out at Barnes & Noble, a guy started talking to me. I didn't consider it trying to be picked up but Don might know best: he's older (39 to my 24), potentially wiser, and probably has done this sort of thing before on a number of occasions. So, apparently by his standards I'm being hit on all of the time and I've decided to turn on the hit-on-o-meter and see how often this really happens, if at all.

This morning I went to Quik Trip (QT) to get my perfect mix of french vanilla and choccolatte (hot chocolate). A guy was filing up his 50 something oz. with cappucino and we chatted a bit, his initiation. He then hands me a business card. Now, I really hate this for a few reasons 1) Is this being hit on or is he a salesman and trying to sell...I have no idea what they sell/do at this business or even what the complicated 4 word job title would even entail. 2) If he WAS hitting on me, it puts me in the odd predicament of having to take the initiative. What was I supposed to do? "Hey, WAIT let me give you MY numbers"??? I don't think so!

He was very cute, though. I wouldn't be embarrsed to be seen in public with him like umm..some boyfriends I've had (if you're an ex reading this, then it's probably not you, don't worry! heh heh) . Besides, I'm not entirely sure of how long I should wait until after a breakup to start dating again, especially since I was on the one dumped. I'm thinking 4 days is too short, though.

I would ask for comments, but since I've had this site all of less than 24 hours, I'm sure no one's found it. My decision is nay.

I say, give him a call. It's never too early, especially when it hits you right in the face. :)

I think I'll wait a week or two. Besides, my friends won't let me stay single for long. You should really enable your profile!

true, true chaos. although the business card is a bit much. To me that says he needs to use his job to impress you because he is lacking the personality to do it himself, just another guys opinion. But yes they are trying to pick you up, or at least practicing. I know a guy who would talk to hot girls everywhere he went just to get used to talking to them that way he wouldn't be overwhelmed when he was in a club/social setting where it is expected.

OK, IF you are going to use the business card as a way to impress chicks, please have a job title that we can understand. I'm iffy on saying what the job title was, though. It's very possible that there's only like less than 10 of these people in Tulsa and because I manage to stick my foot in my mouth often, it would come back around to bite me!

Rachel, call him.

Well, if Miss Dani and some random chick in NJ says to call, OK OK then!
