So another experience to share with you.
This one happened at my favorite Starbucks.
I go there to read or edit books I’m working on.
And also to enjoy the Asian girls.
This particular Starbucks really majors in the latter. The number of these cuties who wander through in the couple hours I’m there is amazing.
Mostly I just enjoy watching them.
Just taking in their energy.
Enjoying them smile and laugh and have a good time.
Yesterday was different though because this girl completely overwhelmed me. The beauty of her eyes and smile and just how animated she was.
Of course as a truly introverted guy?
I immediately wished I could talk to her.
Figure out a way to approach her.
But still make sure it was natural when I did.
At one point her friend who was with her left to go use the restroom. There she was all by herself but I still hesitated instead of getting up to go talk with her.
Her friend came back.
There goes that opportunity!
Then she got up to use the restroom.
But turned around when she saw the lineup there.
Then I did what I often do and said a little prayer to God asking him to help me. That’s right guys and if I ever work with you I’ll be praying for you too!
I asked God to make me brave.
That he would somehow open up the situation.
Suddenly she went to the restroom again.
She hesitated because of the line but then committed to standing there.
I got up immediately because I knew that would mean I’d have some time standing right behind her. I walked right up and said, “Decided to bite the bullet and stand in the line finally did you?”
She smiled and we had a chat for a while and then?
“You seem really nice,” I said to her.
“What do you say we catch a drink sometime?”
She agreed so we shared contact info through a text.
What do you think guys? Does approaching a girl require you to come up with something brilliant to say to her or is it just a matter of saying something and going with it?
