Ok, So I walk into a bar with a black suit coat and a pair of blue jeans and there she is. In a cropped leather jacket and a tight red dress with a cute pair of boots and blonde hair. She smiles and waves at me and says “how was the traffic?” “not too bad, I just ran behind, trying to do too much at once” “well sit down, what do you do” “I’m a hotel assistant manager” “what kinds of people do you get in there?” “All kinds, most people are nice, but some can be a bit snobbish. How about you?” “I work as a dental assistant” “how is it, do you like your job” “it’s alright, it’s really my co-workers that keep me motivated” “So what do you do in your spare time?” “What spare time?” She chuckles and says “when I have a moment, I like to unwind playing random games on my PS4 and looking through movies on Netflix. There are also times when I hangout with friends and we go to the movies and sometimes have game nights. How about you”
“Basically the same, I also mess around on random internet websites and also watch YouTube.” “What kind of games do you play?” “Mostly story games and platform games, like Mario games and resident evil games stuff like that” “Do you play cod?” “What’s that?” “Call of duty!, its like one of favorites!” “I don’t play first person shooters that much” “I’ll tell you what, how about we meet for a second time and ill get you hooked, I promise” “Sure, I’d be up for that, seen any movies lately?” “I recently saw game night with Rachael mcadams and Jason Bateman. It was kind of funny but Rachael Mcadams kicked a**! The depressed cop was a bit creepy but he was also hilarious. How about you?” “I recently saw red sparrow. It was strange seeing Jennifer Lawrence take off all of her clothes but the plot and mystery was really good. What kind of foods do you like?” “I’m pretty open, I like Mexican food, Chinese food, Italian food, Indian food, and American stuff. I have a pretty wide palate”
“I’m kind of same way. Do you have any beilefs?” “Like in a higher power?” “Sure” “well I grew up in a catholic school and I think I have a firm grasp on what I learned back then, why?” “I just was curious, I have similar beliefs. So favorite show from when you were kid” “wow that’s a good one, umm fraggle rock stands out for me” “are you a jim Henson fan?” “whos he?” “Hes the one that put together fraggle rock and he was famous for the muppets and sesame street among other things” “wow that is so cool. I never thought about putting those together before.” “Do you like Disney movies?” “Mostly pixar, I do like the live action stuff though” “Disney is kind of a soft spot for me,
What kind of music do you like?” “I like all kinds, but I’m really into indie stuff. You can find a lot of cool stuff on soundcloud. Have you ever heard of it?” “Yeah, I’ve been on there a couple of times” “You really need to look at it again, you can find a lot of good stuff on there” “So do you have family around here?” “Yeah my mom lives close by but my two brothers live far away with their wives. They always wave it in my face that they got married before me” She finishes her drink and asks for another. “how many other guys have you dated?” “probably about 20, I’ve grown pretty callus. I used to high expectations and high anxiety. What should I wear, will he like me, will I like him. Now I just aim for a good friendship. You would not mind being friends right?” “Sure, I would like to get to know you better” “Good, you seem like a nice guy. Plus I also know what its like to face rejection, every once in while, it’s nice when somebody take a chance on you”
“How about your family, do they live out here?” “My parents are separated” “sorry to hear that” “It’s ok, I just learn to balance between them and they are both in the area which is nice. I also have a half brother and a niece” “awwww. But what do you mean by half-brother?” “My mom had a marriage before she met my dad” “Sorry….” “No problem, it would have come out eventually anyway” “Do you spend time with your brother and his family?” “ Unfortunately, not as much as I would like to but I still see him every once in a while.” “Yeah, family life can take away your time. What do you do with your niece?” “Well, right now she's kind of doing her own thing and can be a bit bossy.” “Yeah, girls can be that way at a certain age” “I’m waiting till she kind of grows out of that a little bit so I can have more fun with her. Right now, we mostly do what she wants to do and play random made up games sometimes” “I’m sure she will come around”
“How about you, any nieces or nephews yet?” “Oh, I've got a couple, I only see them during special family gatherings because they are so far away but it is nice when I see them” “have you got any dreams or passions?” “I really like people and love helping them” “I feel the same way” “people need to valued and treated with respect” “I personally believe that everybody needs love” “I’ve never thought of it that way, but I suppose you’re right. Everybody needs to feel some sort of love in their life” “There is so much hurt and brokenness out there, that I think people just need to know they are loved and valued. Have you ever done people watching?” “ yes!, It feels strange but it is so relaxing” “its kind of fun to make up things that they are doing or talking about” “yeah, sometimes it helps me to slow down when I see people in such a rush. Life is too short”
“ you look tired” “ I kind of am. I know we planned with date thing, but I’ve had a long week.” “we could stop now and pick it up another time” “ no I don’t want to do that to you” “don’t worry about it” “ok, but next time we meet at my place and I introduce you to COD.” “Sounds good” “It was nice talking to you. It’s nice to just be able to talk about random stuff just to get your mind off of things” “I could not agree more” “Ill text you my address. How about same time next week?” “Sounds great! And thanks for taking a chance on me, I know it can be difficult with trusting strangers these days” “No problem, I really look forward to getting to know you more” At that we would smile, I would go in for a hug and Ideally she would hug me back. I would walk her out to the car with some more random talking. And we would go our separate ways.
