After feeling slightly creeped out by the alligator tale we shared yesterday, I started thinking about the more subtle (and less illegal!) ways we let lucky fellows know we’re interested in them. If we let them know that is.
It’s tough letting a guy know you’ve got the hots for him! Sure you may flirt with him at the office or while hanging out with mutual friends but getting that message across that you’re interested in something more is often easier said than done.
Whenever I even start to think about these sorts of situations, I’m instantly reminded of a funny moment in my college French class. We were learning how to speak in casual situations, like when hanging out with friends or crushes. Our professor (who was young, cool and tres chic) asked something along the lines of “When you want to meet a guy or girl, what do you do?” We were all stumped. She looked right at me and asked “Rosemary, when you want to meet guys, what’s the first thing you do?”
“I call them on the telephone,” I answered. Something (on my end) was totally lost in translation. I thought she wanted to know how I asked friends to hang out. She nodded and when another student shot up her hand and said “I would ask a mutual friend to introduce us,” I realized my blunder. After some giggles, I corrected myself and my professor smiled and playfully said she was impressed that I was such a take-charge kind of girl when it came to romance. Ooh la la.
My sweets, how do you let a fellow know you’re interested in him? Do you flirt and hope he gets the hint? Do you tell his friends so they’ll tell him? Or maybe you skip all the charades and take the advice of college-Rosemary and just give the dude a ring on the phone? Do tell!
