I avoided picking up the phone for any local number I didn’t recognize.–It’s actually kind of a romantic story. I probably would’ve gone out with Dex, but the guy took too long!
His approach creeped me out and I hated that I felt pressured to give him my digits.
–Here’s the deal, guys: You can read all the dating and relationship advice you can find – and there’s a lot of good stuff out there – but there’s just one key piece of advice I have to share. So here is a quick history of how I met and was asked out by some of the fellas in my past and whether it worked or whether it failed. We dated for eight months and split up on good terms. A note explained that he’d seen this poster and thought of me, because of my favorite old movie. I scanned my memory for days, trying to remember whom I’d discussed this with in the last six months… I had to say no to Dex’s request to finally meet in person.
But I did give him my phone number after chatting on Tinder for about an hour.
But I do know what it’s like to be the girl that is asked out by a wide variety of guys, in a wide variety of ways. He wasn’t a classically handsome man, but there was instant chemistry and I thought he was so cute. He came in the first weekend we’d opened a brand new location, and my friend Misti told me “that guy’s vibing you!
When I went to leave the store, he stopped me and gave me one of the store business cards.
I also use nicknames like “Army Guy” or “Air Force Guy” or “The Brazilian” to help me keep track of who is who and not get anyone mixed up.
I am actually only still speaking to one of those guys – this was from a month ago – and he has my real number now because because we’ve gone on two dates since we matched on Dec 27, and he is a total sweetheart.
