    omg omg omg, I can't believe this is happening

    So I went bar hopping with a friend tonight, like we do many times. I prefer bars where the music is not loud so you can actually talk and understand each other and where its less crowded. So I walk into this place and right away notice this curly haired beautiful girl and simply can't take my eyes off of her

    I am always a total wuss about things like this and never can muster up courage to go and talk to someone I like, especially if they're not alone. I guess growing up in an Eastern culture has screwed up very badly with my social skills with women. But apparently these skills are acquired and can be developed if you grow enough ba**s.

    So I totally went to this girl, sparked a conversation, carried it on and finally managed to get her number and give her mine. And guess what, I am taking her on a date tomorrow. I can't believe this is actually happening, I mean I never do this, what is happening to me? Whatever it is, it's great.

    It's 2:45am in the morning and I am still frekin excited. I need to calm down really. Just wanted to share with you guys. Guess I will crawl in bed now. Thanks for listening and have a goodnight everybody!

    Glad to hear you were able to step outside of yourself momentarily to snag a date with a fine lady. The hardest part is always beginning. Begin as you intend to go on.


    Color me jealous.

    I figure it like this. When I gave up looking for "a girlfriend" I found one. Just relaxed, and we met at a card game. We've been together nearly 21 years, married 14. Two kids, no pets. Remeber, relax. Be yourself, and let it happen. Congrats.
















    Oh, please don't tell us if/when you get to the baby talk and cutsie nicknames. <<shudder>>

    For some reason, the only women I can pick up in bars are married, cops, or both.

    Congrats, but check for a ring and a badge.
    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    Lol, thanks everyone. Unfortunately, she stood me up. Never returned the call. Chalking it upto experience.

    Of course the best part is I broke out of the shell and did it. Not gonna let this one experience discourage me. Also, many friends told me that getting numbers from girls at a bar and actually hooking up with them is kind of crap shoot and would not work most of the times.

    Aw, that really sucks. You have a great attitude about it, though, and you have the kind of confidence it takes to find a great woman who wouldn't pull that crap.

    It's like on King of the Hill when Bobby asks Boomhower how he gets so many women. Boomhower takes him to the mall and then hits on every woman until one of them accepts his line.

    You got to cast your bait if you want a bite.


    Being said, I went the route mentioned by Indyv8a above:

    I say give her a day or two, then give her one more call to follow-up and make sure everything's ok (the naive in me tends to give people the benefit of the doubt - things do come up), and ask if she is open to rescheduling that date. If she doesn't pick up, leave a polite message. If she doesn't call back, don't sweat it. Good luck!

    Hey, you got a good start! Just remember this success the next time and get 20-30 numbers in a night. There's plenty of fish in the ocean. It's all in the attittude. Have fun!

    That sucks man! Next time if you are at the bar and if you ever see her again go up to her like you don't know her and ask for her number again. But this time, give her a bogus name and pretend like you don't remember her. And if she mentions the last time deny it and say: Really!??!! I know you already? Eeehhhh, never mind. Then walk away and say: "I guess she has one of those forgettable faces..." to yourself but loud enough so she can hear you. Doh!
    This day will be over... one of these days!

    Doh! I had something similar happen, she came over, we started talking, she wound up sitting on my lap for most of the night, exchanged numbers. Turns out she just wanted the nachos.
