the other night, I was out and a bartender where i was (she was already off) I thought was kind of cute. i didn't initially approach her even though we made eye contact and smiled as I was hanging with my buddy, but he mentioned she was cuban. i lived in cuba for a little while (and I now live in Colombia). after my friend left I said f' it I gotta go make conversation with her. turns out she's half cuban half colombian, is a dancer and a sexologist (I guess a branch of psychology). really interesting girl. she works with a foundation here that helps young single mothers. we ended up talking about young girls, pregnancy, and poverty here (i spent a year as a volunteer teacher in a poor town to the south and had a student have a baby, I'll never forget going to take make up work to her, one of the weirdest mix of emotions I've ever had), prostitution, racism.
I kind of realized half way in that I was pretty drunk and still not so confident as I just got dumped about a week ago after a long strung out weird situation with my ex. i also just decided to focus my drunk mind on the conversations we were having. so I wasn't really kinoing or really even flirting with her. a few of the guys that were working at the bar and this other guy made some comments like oh you guys are cute together, you're gonna make beautiful babies (im white gringo, she's black). which by the way is a question in itself, how do you handle comments like that? I just kind of laughed and ignored them. finally i just peaced out at like 4 in the morning.
anyway, we exchanged numbers because we both wanted to go see this african champeta band that was playing in this historic former liberated slave town the next day, turns out there was no bus that was going to come back to the city after the concert so we didn't go, although we talked about maybe going another time.
the ex things still got me down, what do you think, call her sometime soon for a date? or you think i didn't build enough attraction in my failed pick up half attempt?
