So here’s the question: I was at Max and Ermas last night with Swac and Mandace. Swac was driving, and when we were leaving, just as we got into the car, a really cute girl showed up in her car, and parked near us. As she looked over, I looked back and smiled, and she smiled. Mandace made some comment which I casually disregarded, as a girl smiling at you isn’t quite the same as a girl giving you her phone number or anything. But then as she was heading towards the door of the restaurant and we were set to pull out, I looked back at her, and she turned back and gave me another big smile. At this point, what is a guy like me to do? Accept the smile, feel like a kewl guy, and leave (being sure to mention it to as many people that couldn’t possibly give a damn as possible)? Hop out of the car and try to talk to this girl, and accept the inevitable mace/pepper spray in the eyes? Hang out in the Max and Ermas parking lot for the next 2 weeks in the hopes that this girl might return, and then initiate a conversation that would go a little something like this:
Ron: Hi! Remember me? We smiled a couple times a few days ago in this very parking lot.
Girl: Um… No.
Ron: Oh… um… shit!
I posed this question at the Pick yesterday, and the response seemed to be “yeah.. you’ve got nothing.” But I am seriously asking, what is there to do in such a situation that wouldn’t come across as creepy or horribly desperate that still provides at least a slim chance for increased interaction with said girl?
