Note – She is not in a Mariachi band. When I first met her we talked about Mariachi music since she’s mexican.
I set this date up on Sunday at 1pm at the park. Every Sunday they do this free organ show. We decide to meet up downtown at a coffee shop since her car needs repairs. As I’m driving up to the parking lot near the place I see a girl walk by me that’s super cute. I say to myself… “how awesome would that be if that’s her”.
As I enter the coffee shop there isn’t anybody there but the barista. She’s holding a drink and setting it down on the table. As I order my coffee a girl comes out of the bathroom, it’s the cute girl I saw walking, and says hi to me. Looks like it’s my date.
First dates are always a little awkward for me. I don’t know if I should hug or not. I’m hit or miss with it, 50/50. This time there was no hug where there should have been one.
I’m not going to write about the whole date but I can’t say it went excellent or if it was horrible. I don’t think she asked me any personal questions. Most of the conversation with initiated by me. I haven’t gone out with many girls younger then 25 but the ones I have it seems they lack conversational skills. This girl did tell me she was very shy growing up.
I believe I missed some key opportunities to really get to know her. Here’s a few things I could have talked about more
- her growing up in mexico until 9
- very shy as a kid
- was she popular
- picked on
- she plays tennis and raquetball
- traveled all over europe
- differences she’s noticed there
- strange custonms
- how was she treated
- wants to be in fashion and design
- what is it about fashion?
- how come management?
One thing that irked me was after she came back from the bathroom she was on the phone talking to her friend all the way back to the car which was a good 5-8 minutes. I felt it was disrespectful. While on the phone she did apologize and then when she hung up another apology. I’m not sure if then and there I should have brought up the phone issue.
We get in my car and I drop her off downtown. We hug and she says to text her. I’m going to text her today,(12/15/12) , and see what happens. If she gets on the phone again during our date then it’s deal breaker time.
