My two friends met each other at an event. James really liked Sandy and wanted to ask her for her number. But before he could do so, he came over to ask me if she’s single. I answer with a broad smile, “Yes she is! And not only that, I love Sandy! She’s a great girl, cute, and very nice.” I encourage him to ask her for her number, and different ways to approach it to make it more casual and less pressure. 20 minutes later, Sandy comes up and talked to me about James. I told her that he’s really into her. She says she’s interested, too. But when she tried t give him her number, he just wandered off. And didn’t come back. She wasn’t sure what’s going on.
Doofus James!! What are you doing?!
This morning, I get an email from James being all sad that his efforts to get her number failed. Then I get an email from Sandy’s friend asking me for James number, because they want to invite him out to a party.
Seriously, how funny is this situation!
I email James, calling him a Dorko, and asked him why he wandered off! Explaining that Sandy really wanted to exchange numbers, but he didn’t give her enough time and just disappeared…
I also proceeded to tell him that they were asking for his contact info, so I went ahead and gave it to my two girlfriends, trusting that they will only use it for good ;). Then I proceeded to tell James that he owes me big time.
Guys, you need to be more confident. Trying half way is not really trying. You need to follow through completely. It’s not until you actually visibly fail can you truly say your efforts were in vain. Did the girl flat out reject you and refuse to give you her number? If not, keep trying!
You’ll be surprised, she’s also hoping you’ll ask her for her number! You guys are actually on the same page, wanting the same thing! 🙂
