Went to a breakfast diner today with my ex-father-in-law-to-be. I eat there semi often as my schedule allows. There is a very cute waitress that has those eyes that make me second guess what I have to say. (eyes are my weakness, over a butt or chest)
She never seems to be in very high spirits though, not a lot of energy, probably not a great amount of self esteem by the judge of her. She however is an attentive waitress just not very talkative. So now that I am single I obviously get to look at her differently. This was the first time seeing here there since I broke up with my ex.
Anyways, she came to our table to take out order with the usual lack of eye contact and before she could ask what we wanted I said "I bet you have a great smile" to which a smile like a Colgate model covered her face, I said "wow, I was right, you should put that on before your make-up"
Afterwards our entire dining experience was different. She would sit at the empty tables nearby and would constantly make eye contact with me and smile, or at the hostess stand etc. Now my "father-in-law" encouraged me to hit on her some more but no matter how good my game I just couldn't ask out another woman when I use to date his daughter for 3 years, felt low class.
Any tips for the next time I go in? I like the direct approach and figured I would just go up there for cruise night and coffee and ask her to join me after. (they close at 4 but they have outside seating in this area that's always there)
Anyways. I'm not sure if it's been posted here before but I particularly liked it, I think the reason why it worked so well is it was genuine and not canned. Canned is cool for working your own confidence but finding something unique to that person makes them feel good whether you ask her out or not, and at the end of the day. No one can hate you for brightening a strangers day.
