    Mike Damone: I mean don't just walk in. You move across the room. And you don't talk to her. You use your face. You use your body. You use everything. That's what I do. I mean I just send out this vibe and I have personally found that women do respond. I mean, something happens.

    Mark Ratner: Well, naturally something happens. I mean, you put the vibe out to 30 million chicks, something is gonna happen.

    Mike Damone: That's the idea, Rat. That's the attitude.

    Mark Ratner: The attitude?

    Mike Damone: Yeah! The attitude dictates that you don't care whether she comes, stays, lays, or prays. I mean whatever happens, your toes are still tappin'. Now when you got that, then you have the attitude.

    Always wondered what happened to the skier.

    Thanks for the encouragement Seabasket, but I suspect Flash is right on this one. "Some time later would be good," would indicate that she'd like to have lunch on a day when she had more time. "Maybe" usually means no.  

    Then again, she was smiling broadly during our whole interaction, even before I made a total 'tard out of myself in comic fashion, so who knows.  I'll ask her out again in a week or two and if I get the Heisman again, then that's that.  Presumably, even a flat-out rejection wouldn't be as bad as today's "Muh muh muh muh lunch?" event.

    Rachel is getting no chocolate, however.  I tend not to give women gifts, even modest ones, after they turn me down for lunch.  I only humiliate myself by accident, not on purpose.

    ;D Good strategy, Irish. Don't forget about those other prospects.

    I say you call her at her office later in the week. Call Thursday p.m. and ask about lunch Friday or ask her Friday a.m. for lunch that day. Showing up in person again will lead her to believe you're a stalker.
    Which, of course, you are.

    She was smiling because she knows that working at a legal office means they'll file the restraining order for free.

    Go to her office around closing time and quietly follow her home to make sure she isn't seeing somebody else.

    Park your car outside and check on her all night long.  If you get the chance, bump into her and say Hi a couple of times.

    Do this and see how long it takes before the words "restraining order" are mentioned.

    Just a thought.

    (edited to show the Armchair beat me to the mention of restraining order by less than a minute)

    Words to live by, Irish. :)

    If you can't get to your car, drive the bullpen cart instead.

  10. Give her an option:

    You: How about we grab some lunch and a Nooner (or afternoon delight, whichever you prefer)?
    Her: um, No.
    You: ... ... OK.  ... ... How 'bout we skip lunch and just slip out for a nooner? You know, I get all freak nasty and give you the best five-minute - cuddling not included - scrog ride of your week.
    Shit, we'll hit the Starbucks on the way back to the office and I'll get you a latte.

    ;D ;D

    I knew that the inevitable asshole posts from the board would be a small price to pay for the funny ones... ;D
