Be Quiet. Be Vewy, Vewy, Quiet. [UPDATE]

Yep, I did it again! I went on another date. This time, it was a blind date. She is a friend of a friends partner. We all (me, my friend from work, her partner, and my date) went to a comedy club last friday.

She was gorgeous!!!

I was quiet…

She has a 5 month old daughter!!!

That doesn’t bother me at all, but I didn’t tell her that…

She ordered the same drink I did!!!

But I didn’t make a single comment about it…

She got really mad about a drunk guy that kept running into me!!!

But I don’t believe in arguing with the drunk and stupid, so I didn’t make a sound…

She works in IT, like me!!!

But I didn’t ask a single question…

She later told my friend and her partner that I was very quiet!!!

And suddenly I sent off about 4 BILLION text messages to that friend about how lame I was and that she should really send the girl my person contact information!!!

And my friend sent off the information!!!!

But I haven’t heard a word…

Still single, and just realized that Elmer Fudd was talking about hunting, not dating.


[UPDATE] While I still haven’t heard from her personally, I have heard from my friend that she enjoyed the date and wishes I hadn’t been so quiet. She’s looking forward to date #2!

Which, by the way, at this point looks to be another double date in mid December. What are we doing? Going to a strip club!!!!

I sure do live an odd singles life!!!!

  1. Why didn’t you say anything?? All you need is to do is make small talk at least a little. Let a girl know you are interested, but not too interested. Such as “Wow, so you like that drink too?” or “So you have a 5 month old daughter. What is her name? What kinds of things do you like to do together?”

    Talking to people has never been my problem, I need to learn how to shut up. Can you teach me that part?? We can swap information.


    • Small talk is not my strong suit. I need to ask questions, dig deep, really get to know people. Also… SHE WAS GORGEOUS!!!

      I’d love to swap information, but that would require talking.


  2. yup. open your mouth. And i hate small talk, so I’d love a guy who asks the deep questions, just not too many, and not like the third degree.

  3. It was because she was gorgeous. You have no problem talking to people you don’t sexualize. I guess you’ll have to figure out how to cancel out that factor so you can talk to the pretty ones. Or settle for a slightly less attractive woman you can manage to gab with. šŸ˜‰

  4. Let’s recap, Scott.

    This is a woman who liked you, even though you were admittedly tongue-tied (and let me say, rather a quiet man than one who can’t stop telling me about all his good points). You obviously like her. Your next date will be at a strip club, which means she is as unconventional as you are. Somehow, I don’t think she’s into small talk either.

    So suck it up and, next time, TALK to her (though I agree with Lupe, careful about giving her the third degree).

    • Thanks, Sabina! You’re right (of course). I do need to talk to her. I plan on it. And don’t worry, no third degree.

      If it happens it happens. I just don’t want to screw it up before it has a chance to happen. (which is what I almost did)

      So, don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine.

      Hey, what happened with the never-the-right-time guy? Haven’t heard any updates on that?

      Also, do you need me to be your American Lover (it’s in caps because I’m typing it suavely)?
