Dear Dr. Strangelove,
This weekend I went out downtown with a few friends to the bar to celebrate a birthday. When I walked in, a girl on the other side of the room instantly caught my eye. She was so beautiful and I just couldn’t stop staring. It was like there was no one else in the room. I know it wasn’t the booze that was making me feel like this, but even though I had a few in me, I couldn’t bring myself to go over and talk to her. Now I regret that I didn’t grow a pair and might never see her again. What should I do?
– Worried I Missed Passion
Hate to break the news but you might have missed out. For all you know she could be visiting an estranged cousin from Honolulu for the weekend while traveling across country and was only in town for one night.
But that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. Maybe she lives in the area and this is the first time you happened to see her when you were both out the same bar at the same time.
Either way, if you’re sure it wasn’t the alcohol giving you goo goo eyes then start frequenting this bar on a more regular basis. Maybe you’ll spot her again, grow a pair and talk to her. What’s the worst that could happen? She’s either got a boyfriend or isn’t interested. So what? There’s plenty of babes at the bar and you can’t really prove whether a visual infatuation has any worth when you’re half in the bag.
If you do see her again then go and talk to here but don’t be a creep about it. Try to be sweet and generally interested in her as a person and not just her chest. Women (and men) like that sort of thing. Go figure? If all else fails there’s always missed connections!
