Hiding In The Back Of The Coffee Shop

Hiding In The Back Of The Coffee Shop

From the Dating Archives…

So I’m in the coffee shop, ordering my mocha when out of the corner of my eye I see a guy I know, who works there, and had asked me out a few weeks earlier. I totally forgot  a) that he works there and b) that I had pretended to misunderstand that he was asking me out and had said “Sure. I’ll stop by and say Hi next time I’m in.”

So I turn my head and body away from him – and then search for the farthest table away.  I spot one open in the far corner – and then call my girlfriend and say “Hey I’m here and I’m hiding in the back corner because I forgot someone here asked me out and I’m afraid he’ll ask me out again.”  This plan seemed perfect until I hear the barista call out really loudly and repeatedly my name – because I forgot I still had to pickup my coffee!  Did I mention my entire outfit was bright pink?  Ugh!

Why it didn’t occur to me to just tell the guy I’m not interested I don’t know.  I guess I’d rather contort myself into crazy positions than hurt someone’s feelings. Need to work on that one….

    Now I can fully understand this problem. One of my posts on my blog was about telling us men exactly what it is you’re thinking. If you don’t find us attractive or you know that it’s just not a good fit then just tell us that.
    Men and women must face rejection all the time. Does it suck being the one having to reject someone? Yes it does, but it cuts out all of the other bullsh*t and cuts straight to the chase. He was interested in you and you well not so much in him. Just tell him that and be done with it. LOL
    Yes I know easier said than done because I’ve been in those exact same shoes where a girl kept on trying to get me to go out with her. I kept on dodging the question, but finally had to just lay it on the line with her and say, “I’m sorry but I’m really just not attracted to you.” Of course I got the “You didn’t have to be a dick about it!” speech, but in the end it was much better than trying to dodge the situation…:)
    (Hi Michelle…Hope all is well with you. I’ve been lagging lately on posting on my blog…..Took a little break from the dating world….Take care!)

      Chad – You are very right! It is easier, instead to just say not interested. But it can be hard when we don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings.! PS ~ Chad, dood to hear from you. : ) Sometimes a break is exactly what’s needed. ; )

    Poor guy. If you frequent that coffee shop, you’ll just have to tell him. It’s so hard hurting somebody’s feelings though…
