I really wanted to ask someone out who was at the benefit show last night, but I couldn't really think of how to do it. This afternoon, it occurred to me that I should have asked her for her phone number. Doh! Sometimes I think I am just missing something as far as dating goes, because I do such odd things and never really remember how to play the game. And yes, there are definitely some game play aspects to the whole thing, even though I don't really view it as a game. If I want to be successful, I need to learn a few moves. Learn to behave in certain ways in order to be clear that I am interested. The alternative is to approach every woman I am interested in and to tell them I am interested. Maybe not the most effective way.
So I hope she is out again tonight. Now that the phone number thing actually occurs to me, and I have time to think about it, I have time to get scared and chicken out. I do much better when I think of such things at the moment, so I can do them before fear arises.
