I’m currently on a semi-monk mode and still in kind of a slump about my ex, but a friend of mine got accepted to law school recently so he wanted to celebrate. Being that he is a bro who would go out of his way for me I accepted his invitation to the type of place I hate most on earth – a country bar. So we were gathered at our booth talking about how great it was that my buddy got in to a good law school close to home when I saw this girl. She stood out from the rest at this place – really my type. Naturally dark skin, green eyes, long black hair, and a body that clearly spends some good time at the gym, whom was sitting alone at the bar. I thought to myself if I don’t do this now, I never will so I got up and approached head on.
I got there, introduced myself, and pulled a Mark Manson’s version of “I saw you and thought you we’re gorgeous so I had to meet you” because I did truly mean it (thoughts on this? Admittedly my night time approaches are weak). She smiled at me and giggled then said “What makes you think you have a shot with me?” and continued laughing to herself. This caught me a bit off guard and I laughed right back. If you guys taught me anything it’s that a girl with that type of attitude isn’t worth my time. When we were both done laughing I looked at her and said “With that attitude, what makes you think you have a shot with me?” and I turned around and walked back to my friends. Didn’t look back for her reaction, didn’t care. I got back and they asked me what happened and I told them. They found it funny and started poking fun at me while looking back at her and laughing their asses off (most of them were pretty drunk at this point).
I continued to have a great time with my buds, didn’t even think about her. About 2-3 hours later I feel a tap on my shoulder as I was watching people get flung off the mechanical bull. Low and fucking behold it was the same girl. She told me that she was sorry for her behaviour and what not. I accepted and started some conversation but not thirty seconds after my buddy called me out to go onto the mechanical bull. I really didn’t give a shit about her at this point so I just went right on up to it.
I stayed on for quite a bit and had a crowd gather around to cheer me on – which was probably some pretty good social proof. Got thrown off after beating the nights record and she was at the front of the crowd smiling and clapping. Fuck it. Literally just went to the edge of the platform, leaned over the foam wall and pulled her in for a kiss. And I did not expect her to be so enthusiastic. Guys… I’m still chuckling to myself about this. I literally maybe spoke to this girl for a total of thirty seconds. Me walking away from her during our first encounter, a crowd cheering me on for social proof, and no one else approaching her (I honestly don’t know if she was approached or not after I left her, I’m just assuming she wasn’t) was enough for her to decide to be attracted to me.
Woke up in her apartment this morning to the smell of french toast and maple syrup. I think I just got my first plate.
