A couple of months ago I asked her something that related to the business where she worked, and later I realized that that was the most I'd ever talked to her, ever. I'm talking about a brief exchange that lasted maybe thirty, forty-five seconds on two separate occasions.
Soon after those brief exchanges, I went in there and she kind of gave me a look with snarled lips that seemed to indicate that I disgusted her in some way. So I guess that my fantastic progress I made in getting to know her better was all for naught, and I had to start at square one again.
My last post talked about how other attractive young female employees seemed to display an energy that indicated I was on the right track when I went into that business a couple of days before while this particular woman worked her shift. This was the first time I allowed myself to be around her since she snarled at me that time, because I don't really like young women snarling at me and trying to let me know that I disgust them on a basic, primal level. Soooo, anyway, I was around her, but she didn't say hi to me or otherwise indicate to me that she wanted to see more of me, but this other time, with these other women, a couple of days later, on this other shift seemed to constitute an attempt to give me some kind of shot in the arm as encouragement.
Okay, let's go with that. So let's see. She's been working there for several years now, and the previous paragraphs pretty much summarize how far things have gone between us up to this point. Sooo, based on how long it has taken for things to get as far as they have, I will try to put a timeline on the stages of progress that pretty much have to occur before I can go on like, maybe, one date with this person.
Sooo it might take, I don't know, two or three more years before she will greet me in a pleasant manner and let me know she's glad to see me in a general sense. It may take another year or two after that before she will let me talk to her and maybe another three years after that before the small talk exchanges become more personal in nature. Let's see, adding all that up, it might take about six to eight years before I can approach her at this business and talk to her about stuff of a personal nature.
Now, provided that she manages to be nice to me that whole time, it may take another two or three years before I'm comfortable enough to invite her to a musical performance of mine, or ask her if she'd like one of my comics. Then another couple or four years after that, maybe, before I could feel like I want to ask her out. That is, provided that she actually shows up for at least one of my shows and shows a general interest in what I do creatively and otherwise, and provided that I like her well enough, and oh yes, provided that she doesn't snarl at me as if she wants me to know that I disgust her on a deep, personal level.
So, I guess it might take about ten to twelve years before I go on one date with her. Now, she's a young woman, with a young woman's appetites for life's pleasures, I reckon, so if she needs to have certain needs met before I'm allowed to come along, I guess that would be alright. A fine romance indeed.
