So everytime I go to this store there is this girl behind the desk. The next time I go there, should I just randomly give her a piece of paper with my number on it and see what happens?
I have no clue if she is interested or dating anyone. But there is only one way to eine out.
However, if nothing happens (likely) how am I going to that shop again? I don't want to switch to another one as it is on my way to work and by far the most suitable.
Man, this is getting silly. But I am thinking and thinking.
Forget what everyone else has said.
Find a random topic you'd most likely know about - local news/event (not running related), something in the store - then build up the interest in really wanting to know others (not hers specifically) opinion about it and wanting to tall to other people about it (not her). Next time talk to her about this thing. Forget it's her. The topic/this thing is more important and you need to talk to someone about it. Just a short chat. After doing this a few times THEN you can start talking/asking about herself but initially you are strictly making small talk and you must try to imagine it's not her you're talking to.
The above is not bad but the guy talking about using their hands while talking was also a good post.
Most of the rest of the posts to this point have been silly and we might actually be worse for having read them. This is a good idea for a thread. Please contribute some good points people.
