I asked for advice, why did I have to follow it!

Man, why did I have to listen to you guys! Long story short ‒ I gave a guy my phone number...before he could ask for it! For me it was one of those “You had me at hello” things, and when he flashed me a cute, shy smile … I was hooked, with a capital hook.

Let me set the scene, Saturday, 3am, crowded bar, I’m out with friends, so is he. We talked, we flirted a little, and when he told me about his boring job I didn’t yawn, not even once. When his crude, vulgar friend would join the conversation I was nice and pleasant, and faked a good laugh!

The laughing and flirting continues until 4:30 and my friends want to go get breakfast so I suggest he join us. He declines saying he should probably say with the crude, vulgar friend. Maybe he was lying, maybe he wasn’t. Anyway, I did something I’ve never done before. I dig around and find a sheet of paper, get a pen from a friend and write my phone number down and give it to him. I lean in and say something funny, charming, and memorable (I’m sure) and then we leave. It’s at moments like that when I wish I could be smooth. I need to get some moves that are for sure.

So by the time we load up my friends are already giving me a hard time. Oh well, I can always blame it on being drunk and hungry. They all admit that he was cute! You know ‒ tequila goggles and all.

So me and my friends go to breakfast, and I’m dropping one at her house, and I check my phone, and there’s a voice mail! I listen to it... and it’s the cute guy … he wants to know how breakfast went, and wanting to make sure I got home ok. See, I told you he was sweet!

I knew I shouldn’t, but I called him back immediately, and crude, vulgar friend answers the phone. After suffering through his distasteful comments, I finally get to talk to the cute, shy boy. He sounds just as cute on the phone - right up until he asks me to join him at his hotel room. I graciously declined. And then he says “I’ll call you again if that’s ok?” and I said “I’d like that.” We said our goodnights… and that was that.

Still haven’t heard from him. Remind me not to listen to you guys next time!

Why did he have a hotel room?
You know crude and vulgar is going to have your ph. number, right?

Give shy guy a little time and encourage him but tell him you like him so much you want to take it slow so you will have more fun together! Man proposes, woman disposes. Just run the show and control the pace! Enjoy!

A hotel room? No phone call since? My guess is he's married.

I decline any responsibility: that was not the electrician you told us about last time.

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience
