Well, the girl I’ve been crushing-on in yoga class, finally showed up for yoga today (after about a two week absence), and throughout class I couldn’t clear my mind, or concentrate on the poses, because all I could think about was her.
I kept sneaking peeks at her throughout class. She’s adorable. She was kinda dancing to the music while she was coming in and out of different poses. That made me smile.
So after class, I was going to ask her out, but other girls kept “getting in the way.” Then I finally caught her eye and she came over, but before I could say anything two other girls came over and the four of us ended up chatting for a few minutes. FINALLY, the other two moved on to other people, and I asked for her number.
It wasn’t exactly asking her out, but I did get her number. And she even recommended that we should go hiking sometime. Whew!!
As I entered her number into my phone my hands were shaking slightly. I kept thinking…please don’t notice…please don’t notice.
I can’t believe I’m 39 years old and I’m STILL afraid to talk to a pretty girl. And this is the FIRST time I’ve EVER asked for a girl’s phone number. Sure I’ve done the internet dating thing, and I did ask that dancer out a month ago, but those don’t count. With internet dating, everyone knows what you’re all there for, and I fully expected the dancer to turn me down, so there were no nerves involved there.
Well, now I’m rambling. Anyway…asking for a girl’s number is WAY outside my comfort zone, and I did it. And I’m happy! :-)
