I was sitting, writing, in my favorite coffee shop today, and found that a cute girl(about 20 years old, HB7-good age for me, since I'm 21) was staring at me. When I met her eyes, she quickly looked away, but this happened repeatedly. I would have approached immediately, but I was inside the glass wall, and she was outside. My writing session was winding down anyway, so I figured I had enough time to approach on my way out.(which I did.)
She was talking to somebody, who I couldn't see from where I sat. I assumed it was her boyfriend. If it was, I knew she wanted me to take her from him, but I absolutely nothing about boyfriend destroying.
However, when I got up to buy a cookie from the bar, I made sure to take a closer look. It was a woman in her fifties or early sixties.
This girl was, without a doubt, over 18, so that's not a concern. She looked like a college student, probably a student at Vanderbilt(I live in Nashville). And she clearly like me. The way she stared, it would have been particularly easy to turn the encounter into a win, so long as I went in as an alpha.
But they looked genetically related. I was stumped by how to approach with her mother, aunt, or grandmother(whicheve r it was) sitting there.
I toyed around with stopping them to ask 'where the Parthenon was, because I had just moved to town.' I've really already been to the thing, but it seemed like a possible shot.
I really wasn't experiencing aa, necessarily, just technical block. How could I pull that one off without creeping the mother out, and spoiling the set. The girl would know why I was there, and might have welcomed the approach, but depending how much of an AMOG(lol) the mom was, she might have tried to quickly repel me if I couldn't quickly win her over.
When it was time for me to go, I walked out of the coffee shop and passed by the duo, still not sure if I would approach or not. I looked at the HB7 and her eyes met mine again as I passed, but I directed my steps the other way, and once I'd started walking away, it was already blown. Going back after that would have revealed that I had wanted approach initially, but had to build up my nerve.
As I walked to my car, I was like "I screwed up!" In my head, but I got in and drove away, kicking myself for losing the potential lady friend.
