So here's the deal: I had midwinter break and was enjoying my time off. Sleeping in, meeting up with friends, going out to eat (more often) and just chillin out. One lunch I was due to meet my friend Suri at the local cafe. I got there a good 5 minutes early and there was a line up so I stood there at the back of the line and waited.
That's when I noticed two guys. I've never seen them before and there was no 'out of town' license plates on any cars parked outside. I was curious about them-were they my age? We're they single? They seemed like nice, frum, guys. Could they be here for a wedding or maybe both of them are here for dates? Who knows. All I know is that no matter how curious-there as no way I would walk on over to their table and start chatting to them. What if they were both married?!? How awkward. And this my fellow readers is why a frum girl can't just march on over and talk to any guy she's interested in. If he IS married or has a girlfriend-she walks away feeling stupid. If he isn't married or someone else's boyfriend, she might have a maybe very slight percentage of chance that he is interested in her.
Sheesh-where's my little guy friend/puppy/someone else's kid I'm babysitting to startup a convo. Nothing like a baby to help get someone's attention.
Anyway-any ideas as to how to approach a guy that you see, don't recognize/know and seem interested without the shame/embarrassment of making a total fool of yourself? Share them in the comments section below.
