I saw the most gorgeous girl in my building yesterday. We shared an elevator. I tried to chat her up but it was awkward. Her smiles were clearly out of pity. It went down like this: me> man this elevator is always so slow chick>yeah me> laundry day huh? chick> just a few things. me> where u from? (I detected accent) chick> I'm from here wield silence... we both exit the same floor. This is how my pickups (lack of) usually go. I'm thinking maybe well cross again, hopefully its not her bf place. I want to step it up. You know... go out for drinks and back to my room. I rarely get the opp and when I do its with kinda cute girls that find me attractive. I want to date women I find attractive. I'm trying to think of things as conversation openers, so I can do better at attracting women and getting numbers on the spot. Unless there's some obvious interest, or at least a smile, I never get the job done.
