So last night at a Rise Against concert me and a buddy were walking around in the halls near the bar area. Spotted this cute girl leaning up against the wall eating a piece of pizza. My buddy shouted out to her "I see you've been standing there for awhile, that pizza must be pretty good!" to which she laughed, and we both walked over and just started a casual conversation with her for about 5-10 minutes. Turns out she actually just came by herself to the concert. Me and my buddy were both talking to her but it was clear that I had more in common, so I kind of took the lead with the conversation. I was thinking of going for a Number Close.
Out of nowhere while were all talking this girl says "so I don't want to ruin your guys HOPES and DREAMS but I do have a boyfriend". We just kind of joked about it a bit (but nothing clever unfortunatly) and moved past that subject, still talked for a bit, then we left. Note: When she said this, she didn't seem defensive or anything. I was a little pissed though about the "hopes and dreams" thing... who does she think she is..?
Later on I saw this girl in the crowd, somewhat near us, and I gave a friendly wave (at this point we were both standing with two other girls chatting that we know), she saw me, waved back, but then acted kind of startled or something and walked off. I was trying to pinpoint in my head if she was creeped by us, or just doing her own thing.
I then moved by myself through the crowd up to the pit area for awhile, and wouldn't you know it, there she was again about 20 ft to my left. I DO NOT think that she was purposly following me around. I actually got a little uneasy, hoping that she wouldn't think I was following her around..
Now question for everyone... do you think this was just coincidence I kept seeing her around by me? I was seriously thinking of going up to her again near the end to ask "so I just have to ask... do you really have a boyfriend... cuz I think your cool and would like to talk to you again sometime (number close attempt)" but I held off for fear of looking like a STALKER. Also.... How is it best handled when there are 2 guys talking to one girl? I feel like its a little overpowering for them getting double teamed . How could this overall interaction been handled different?
