I went and talked to some more girls today.
The first girl clearly was uncomfortable. She used her hand to cover her eyes, as if to block the sun. BUT we were in shade. She was using her hand to avoid making eye-contact. This means that she is uncomfortable. Her answers to my questions were simple statements. I did not call her pretty. I just walked up and asked what she was doing.
It turned out that she was a Christian, but she had a boyfriend. She told me that walking up and hitting on a girl can be a bit abrasive. She then recommended that I should try to meet a girl in church. I said that my church only has 1 girl that is close to my age. I also agreed with her that it is probably better to meet a girl while she is with friends, and I am with friends. I replied that that is why I go to a lot of social events, but most of the social events I go to have few girls. As soon as she realized I wasn't going to hit on her, because I knew she had a boyfriend, she livened up a lot. I started joking that she should introduce me to a girl.
It seems that most Christian girls do not respond to random guys walking up to them and politely hitting on them. It is so annoying. I've met a Christian girl yesterday that we talked to for a bit, but she wouldn't give me her phone number or email. In hindsight I should have recommended adding her on Facebook.
After that I talked to two sisters at a small event. I sat down and they both were immediately interested in talking to me. They both asked me a question at the same time. One of the girls said,
It's so hot.
That's sweet of you. But you didn't have to call me that.
She laughed. I had a pretty good time talking to them, but both were a little young. So I gave them a card to my book club and walked away. I realized later that I approached 2 girls! I normally only have the nerves to approach a girl that's alone. But I talked to two girls without feeling embarrassed.
I then talked to a girl working in an office. I did the normal,
Hey, you looked really cute. I wanted to say hello.
And her boss totally saw me and could hear everything we said, and I wasn't worried about it at all. hahaha. I talked for about 2 minutes and went for her number. She didn't give it to me.
I then really briefly talked to a girl. I said,
Hey, you are so cute, I have to say hello.
She smiled in a "I'm really uncomfortable talking to you" way. She ended the conversation with,
I'm going to the library.
Her body language was all screaming, "Please leave me alone."
As she walked away I said,
I don't bite. I promise.
I let her go, because she was super uncomfortable. That probably meant that she was a sophomore or pretty young. I should have tried for a
What's wrong. I weight 140. If I annoy you, you could kick me across the yard.
On a plus side, I may run into a puppy-siting girl tomorrow for lunch. I told her that I was going to eat some lunch in a public place. She said that her lab would be there the same time and that we might run into each other. We'll see.
