Ha Ha Ha yep that about covers it!
How did it go down? Cereal isle? Fruits and Veggies?
It was the pasta isle, I worked there and asked if he needed any help. He told me he wanted to make mac and cheese for his staff for lunch and needed the ingredients. i offered to make it for him since we had a prepared foods section too but he wanted to do it himself which I thought was really cute. I subsequently found out he had a girlfriend but would run into him from time time out at bars and I always referred to him as Hot Mac. since he was hot and buying mac n cheese. Lol. we didn't start dating till 2 years later when i ran into him one late night on my way out of the bar, asked where his girlfriend was and he said they broke up. I said so sorry to hear that, would you mind walking me to may car? he agreed and the rest is history ;)
Wow what a great story... in the right place at the right time!
yes right place right time but also from not being afraid to strike up a convo. with a stranger
Thanks for MHO💟
Love me some Whole Foods on a Friday night around 530 pm... OMG.
Real shit, a prime hunting ground

Grocery stores are adding bars inside so that you can grab a drink while shopping for dinner or maybe even meet someone! You are only 17 though so your comment makes sense.
If you both are at the bar in a grocery store, which I have never seen (live in the US) then it's fine, otherwise it is weird.
@Twalli Kroger and Whole Foods have bars inside... well at least the new stores... if you see a woman shopping with a glass of wine in her hand you better believe she is down for some conversation!
I don't recall ever setting foot inside a Kroger. I go to whole foods about 4 times a year, as and the one I go to doesn't have a bar. Although that could be because there is a restaurant with a bar in the same strip.
Quo vadis mundi?Anything to make a buck on the back of the populace and to entice them to be sexual! Poor society...
@NaultDWhat stores only do pick up and delivery?
@MysteriousDarkness it could be any store name and even fast food places. Like a wendys or Walmart dark store.
They are currently adding bars and wine tastings to groceries all over including Kroger and Whole foods. I would argue that the pick up and delivery will be a huge hit but the store it self is moving into a more "social" place then a local C store.
Well I would argue they have gotten better. Kroger has added bars to their stores and I have always ordered a glass of wine at whole foods to peruse the isles of my unexpected targets!
I usually go shopping much later at night, but when I've been there at the right time, I've seen those "wine tasting" bars at Kroger with people getting pretty loose.I've only been to Whole Foods once or twice. I didn't know they served wine.
It's pretty incredible... whole foods in Dallas is the place to be!
Last time I was in Dallas (working in Plano) I don't know if Whole Foods existed yet. That was 2002 I think.
Not sure I was there for about 6 years just recently so they are everywhere now!
Ha very true! If you are looking to meet people better have that CART on point!
@ImSparkly A funny and true point indeed. The latter are usually the ones I avoid lol.
yeah I mean it would be innocent for me if in the same aisles and ask a question about something. I though doing that is best, as a genuine conversation and not trying to pick up. Basically get comfortable trying small talk with people in public. But despite me generally being found handsome and girls have never found me a creep and the opposite. I just feel like "does this bother women being talked to out in public at a place they don't expect to be talked to but men they don't know?" So I get self conscious like if it's creepy of me to just talk even if it's innocent and seeing if the girl may engage back. Like women may not like it, but I'm sure women expect to be approached at bars or such, but grocery stores? What's your take, do I have to worry about this or am I over thinking?
No worries, and it's okay to overthink things or be conscious about your surroundings. It means you're human. While I know it may seem weird to others to assume that the grocery is one of the best place to meet someome; but what better place could there be to strike a genuine conversation though? Reserving places exclusively for the purpose will only make you lose 50% chances to meet a potential date. Anywhere is convenient; and the key is to make a "significant connection".The grocery is a natural place to make a conversation. People just love to show off how much they know about anything at the store. (.. and it's better to get along with someone who knows how to survive, eh?) Generally, simply being open and approachable, making subtle eye contact and giving a friendly smile and kind gestures makes it easier to make a connection. That's not weird if it's a natural thing you do to everyone like helping an old lady to carry her groceries or assisting a lady to pick an item on top shelves. It'll feel strange if you're suddenly being too friendly and jovial when you usually have an aloof or quiet demeanor.Lastly, I, personally, prefer meeting a potential date on places that would tell me more of truth than a lie. And I want to date as nature intended; I believe there's no need to go on places where it's always expected. But of course wherever it is, always be attentive to details like wedding bands or engagement rings (you don't wanna get punched in the face for assuming..) While in the groceries, it's easier to pick the signs tho.. As I've said, you can learn a lot from someone's basket. I hope that helps... 😉
If a woman meets a guy in the produce section what tricjs does it mean he knew? A lot of guys know how to save money and or cook.
I mean tricks.
Where I'm at people seem to be a in a hurry to get in and get out, so I don't bother with anyone. Plus, I'm a guy that may smile or give eye contact if passing by a person. I'm apparently approachable as I've had old ladies ask me to get cans up on the top shelf down for them in an aisle or an old person try to make a quick comment to me. These chatty old people lol. But I'm not usually one to just chat with people because I don't know if said person will be rude and then make me be like fuck this why should I bother chatting a person near me that I don't know. So tbh unless a person is smiling and looking friendly, I'm not going to start small talk. And more often I'd more often being motivated on just talking to a woman I found physically attractive, because even if she's not so nice, I had the incentive to try compared some old person that I thought I'd practice being sociable to people I don't know and getting out of my comfort zone. But i'l be more likely to think it was a waste in doing that if such person is rude because I got a rude remark with nothing worth taking that risk whereas, the cute girl there was incentive of that risk. And it's an assumption to think the cute girl would be rude and old lady nice, when it's an individual thing, not a gender, race, age, etc thing in regard to someone's attitude.
I'm usually away of things, but like what would hint of a woman being single from her grocery cart? snacks? alcohol? ha. Maybe the answer is in my face, but I just can't think now
If by a lot you mean one out of fifty, then chances are, they don't exist anywhere in the field. But if you say a huge lot, they're more likely, say, 30% gay and 50% married men. And I beg to disagree. A lot if not most single men I know are more inclined to buy ready-to-cook meals or frozen prouducts but less produce goods particularly herbs and spices (except if he's a certified chef). Say for instance choosing a good quality of watermelon on produce section. Not every man knows the trick to choose the best. And so goes to the rest the produce goods there is. Another example, when buying a flour. A typical man would just pick the first item he would see on the shelves while there are variety of flour on stock. And what if the flour he needs is not available on any groceries there is? The trick is to find the nearest alternative. But not every man knows that too, eh? Budget wise, some man don't even compare the prices either. And I bet if they want to spend more time on the groceries for that matter. (And this traits are clearly explained through psychological analysis how man's brain works) Im no sexist... Just being realistic to say that some single men (and some women) will, more probably, spend their hard-earned money on gadgets, travels, bars, hobbies and leisures. Afterall they're single.
And I don't know what trick you're asking but to be particular, say for example, cooking modified versions of Alfredo's, paella, beef bourguignon or molten lava cakes etc etc? Or food preserving/processing.. Like canning or salt preserving? Or making a non-espresso brewed coffee made of organic ground coffee beans brewed through decoction and infusion? (Now that's the best brewed coffee I can have on this very bad day.) I know that's too much but the "tricks" I mean are something close to that expertise. Gets? And if you're insinuating a different type of trick that involves tearing lacy panties off on the kitchen counter and getting down? That's just a bonus!! 😅😅😅 Chiao!
@brennanhuff well is her cart contains more than what she needs or there are items only intended for infants or man, wouldn't it be obvious?
I feel as, although I get into shopping mode, this isn't always true. I do agree with your last bit, though. I was asked out while working and it was not a good experience.
my thoughts exactly
Just make sure you are an Alpha then! Easy fix.
Ha ha ha
Girl: *holding fruit* Hey, how do you know when melons are ripe?Softball it in. If he don't knock it out of the park, he did you a favor
Bahahaha my gosh, yeah, I'd be bursting out in tears trying to pick up guys at a grocery store
Those opening lines works better than you think.Might make the guy to believe you have a naughty fantasy whith the melons. some even gonna think your after quick sex.If a guy does it, it most likely gonna be taken as a joke to openup a conversation if she isn't stiff and boring.
Starting the conversation is the hard part, honest.
It’s a risk only for the brave and the confident... so don’t try it!
If you're a pretty boy,... yeah, that will work. If you're not, go figure,.. right?
Thats me, the last one anyone would expect to stuff chicken breast with fresh spinach or asparagus, fetta cheese, and sundried tomatoes. Itallian bread and a glass of white zen. Or chabrinette
Apologies. Blood sugar low
Sounds about right!
That old spice advantage is key!
Love me some Swagger.
Your not old. I don't believe it is in how you dress. It is if you are comfortable in being yourself. If you love yourself. Myself as a quality man can tell. But I am 40 and do things old school. Keep your head up and the right man will come around.
@letzdooit I’ve never been 100% comfortable in being myself. Even when I was young and hot, men only wanted me for my looks. It’s no different now except men have backed off from approaching me. I’m quite happy with it but I was just making an assumption that the way I dress now is definitely not to impress which makes a huge difference in the way men perceive me
My thoughts exactly!
You should had try it...
Lol nooo I ain't a cheater to do that
You get a smmiley face sticker ! :)
You have boyfriend... To cheat on him?
