Summer is a Dealer at the new casino I work at now. I first met her on a night shift over a month ago and I barely saw her until this week where we had the same 3 shifts together. She caught my eye right away, very attractive, great skin complexion in the face and she would wear these sexy stockings that would go up to about 3/4 of the way up her thighs. These are the things I found out about her on the few breaks we actually shared together earlier in the week.
- 23 years old
- Parents are from Saudi Arabia
- Has a Biology degree
- Likes travelling
- Worked at the casino for a year
- Foodie (perfect)
- Hates dry cheese unless melted like on pizza (me too lol)
On our final shift together a couple of nights ago, we happened to have a break together and we were on our own in the staffroom. My instinct was to ask her out on a dinner date. But then I remembered reading a post on WordPress about coffee dating and it’s benefits of it being a casual and inexpensive setting to get to know someone you’re interested in better (I wasn’t bothered about the cost, it was the casual aspect I was interested in). I’m not much of a Starbucks type person but she didn’t know that and the fact that I’m new to the city I could play it off that I didn’t know where the nearest coffee shop was (even though I knew with 5 minute walk of the casino there is at least one Starbucks, Costa and Caffè Nero). So I asked her if she wanted to grab a coffee after our shift finished at 6am. She initially said no because she had another shift to do the next night and didn’t want the caffeine to keep her awake during the day. I said fair enough, we kept chatting anyways about other stuff. 2 minutes before our break finished a moment of genius struck and I said to her that she could get a decaf version of whatever her usual drink is. She agreed and after work we went to Starbucks.
In Starbucks after I ordered my hot chocolate and she ordered her pretentious sounding mocha latte white bullshit (yeah I told her to say what she wanted because there was no way I would remember what to say). When we sat down, in our line of sight was 2 guys sitting on different tables typing away on their laptops which straightaway reminded me of that scene above from an episode of Family Guy. I think our unofficial coffee date lasted under an hour, but I thoroughly enjoyed her company. We talked at first about the casino and I was picking her brain about what she though about working there. Then the conversation just went from here there and everywhere, The World Cup 2018, geography and restaurants (which peaked my interest because now I don’t have Jasmine to try new places with I could do with a new restaurant buddy). We left, swapped Facebook details, hugged a little and went our separate ways. For an unofficial coffee date, it went better and was more enjoyable than most dates I have had in my life.
Now I needed to know how far this would go, even though I would of preferred to ask her out on a date in person I wouldn’t be working a shift with her for at least a week. The impatience got the better of me so without using the word “date” I asked her if we have a day off together soon would you like to go out for dinner? Her reply…
Sure, we will see if we have a day off together, sorry just to say that it will be as friends for now as i do enjoy your company
OK, which 2 words in that sentence do you think has caused me the most grief / confusion? If you guessed “FOR NOW” give yourself a gold star.
Was that a typo and she actually means she wants us to be just friends?
Does it mean she hasn’t made up her mind about me as a viable dating choice?
Is this a way for her to give me the brush off because she only wants to see me only as a work friend and not a friend to socialise with outside of work?
For further clarification besides actually asking her directly like a normal confident person I need to play this out longer. The ball is in her court in regards to going out for a meal on a free day, so if she truly enjoys my company as much as I enjoy hers she should bring it up again. I can’t bring it up again because I would come across as impatient and if there is the slightest chance I could have a shot with her then that chance would disappear as she could rethink her opinion of me.
To be continued…. Or this post to be updated depending on what the answer is.
