1st mentioned here: Help building attraction without telegraphing too much interest
Thursday I had coffee with a mid-40s Cougar friend where the waitress was gorgeous & very friendly. I usually don't assume hired guns are into me because they are basically paid to give IOIs. But every time she came to our table, we locked eyes for longer than normal. It was intense. I thought I was playing it cool but as soon as I mentioned the waitress, my cougar friend said, "Are you interested? I sensed something."
Sunday the cougar texts me: Her name is XXXX. She's 25 & just out of a 4yr relationship. She's open to all of us hanging out sometime.
Awesome. Apparently, the cougar stopped the HB9 at work to talk about me. It's kind-of high school & I hope it didn't seem planned. But anyway the HB9 wants a group hangout so I'm inviting a some friends out for black-tie bar-hoping Friday night. My goal is to number-close the HB at her job tomorrow morning or at least get a solid commitment for Friday.
What's my morning mission?
Go early, make a joke about the cougar match-maker & invite her before the cougar arrives?
