I was on vacation visiting an old army buddy for a week. I had quit my job and decided to see him while I had the chance. Vacation went well and to end it we decided to eat out before my plane left. There was a wait so we wandered about and I was left with the buzzer for when our table was ready. When we were called it was just me and my buddy's daughter that got seated. This left me pretty much alone to converse with our very lovely waitress. There were smiles and chit chat as she took our drinks, nothing overly flirty I don't think. The rest of my friends family caught up and was seated finally. As we ordered, and subsequent times she came back to check on us, my buddy kept looking at me odd. When we finished and the checks came (we split them up) he wrote something involving me liking her and put my phone # down. I never saw it but that was what I could get out of him. She came back and said we were "funny", with a playful smile though. I admitted she was very attractive and we proceeded to leave. My flight was leaving in less than 2 hours and it was 30 min to the airport. On the way back to the car my friends entire family was trying to get me to go back and ask her out. He even told me I could stay with him another 2 weeks. While I appreciate it he lives 2.5 hours away from where she works and he only has 1 car that he said I could use. He's a bit impulsive. I wouldn't feel right taking the only car from a family of 5. I also don't have a job so renting would slowly make me broke. I reasoned that even if I did stay it would be too stressful a relationship being 100+ miles away and me not having a job. And if I did get one in the mean time, then getting schedules to match. And that's if she even said yes. My friend and his family said we were "in love" from the way we looked at each other. Did I make a mistake? Should I go back if she calls? Right now that's 2k miles away. The only thing I know for sure is she has the most beautiful smile.
