So my friend and coworker had a disaster of an experience with these girls today. We go to school and work at a restaurant where you prepare food in front of the customer and talk to them.
So it's often hard to really pick up a girl in the few minutes we have with them unless they are trying to pick us up too.
Well today there was a 7 and an 8.5 and they were giving major IOIs including telling stories to sound cool. The 7 was acting ditsy/insecure but both were fun and engaging us in conversation/joking around. I have a girlfriend so I just try to look out for my friend in these situations, but I am often at a loss for what to do in the short time we have with these girls. As it turned out we blew it and as the food was served we chatted for about another minute and then they walked off.
I told my buddy that that this girl was very much into him and he should have invited her to do something with him. He didn't pick up on their trying to show off as trying to impress us so he thought they were just stuck in their own conversation (though we were certainly talking back and forth). Well the one girl came back for "more food" (it's not a buffet so when this happens it often means they want to talk more and get asked out). Well then some guys came over and somehow knew the girls and started talking to them about boring things. I didn't know what to do to get rid of the guys so we ended up just waiting it out. Then the girl said she didn't want food anymore and walked away. Well my friend decided to hunt her down in the mall and when he found her he played it off like he didn't see her and she and her friend came over to him and started bullshitting. Well he asked them what they were doing tonight and they said x. So then they were walking in different directions (i know there are things you can do so this doesn't happen i don't remember what) and so they just parted ways.
I told him he should have tried for a number and that he wasn't officially rejected until the girl didn't give him her number at which point he needs to just come back to work lol.
Anyway what are you guys' thoughts particularly about getting rid of those guys... Any other thoughts would be great as we have to deal with these quick opportunities when at work.
*EDIT: it seems to me that whatever could have been done about those guys would have involved one or both of us staying with the group when the guys came over with the implied status of being already friends with the girl and not just weird restaurant workers who are trying to get into the conversation. Maybe just getting introduced to the guys would have broke the ice and then we could have just been more interesting and fun than them and DHVed a bit. Or we could have said that we had work to do and we'll be in the back which is what we did without actually saying anything. It just seems to me the way we responded was a dlv.
