ImThatGirl Posted July 6, 2008 Share Posted July 6, 2008 There was a thread on here last week questioning eye contact and if there is a way to determine if someone is interested according to eye contact. As well as next steps, what to say, etc... Friday, I sort of got blown off as far as plans go. I went with my parents to the casino and the Davy Jones concert. Blew a few bucks at the casino (learned my lesson - can't win every time,) had dinner and a couple drinks with my parents while watching the concert. Then - decided I'd go sign up for a rewards card (to enter in a drawing for a BMW... lol) I had walked around already and noticed eye contact all over the place which made me think of that thread... Went to the line for rewards and noticed a guy eyeing me. Eyes locked and it was just clear. No questions - I could talk to him, etc. He was with his family though. So I finished through the line, talking to the other people in line like I've known them forever. Went into the casino again, found a spot. Played a bit, looked up and that guy and his friend were nearby. Called them over and told them I had a question about the reward program we just signed up for. Spent the rest of the evening playing and sitting at a table talking to this guy. Also talked with the janitor, the waitress, and a professor from a good college in our state. Went and watched fireworks as well with them. Phone numbers exchanged. Text messages, couple phone calls. Possibility of dinner both yesterday and today (I declined - busy.) Anyway - I just don't understand shyness I guess. To me, meeting people seems SO incredibly easy. Self confidence and less priority of meeting "the one" I think helps. Rejection seems to be one thing that people bring up often. Fear of rejection I should say. I don't understand that either. So you talk to someone or say hello and they don't seem responsive. That shouldn't effect someones entire mood. It shouldn't be a huge deal...? Guess I'm just interested in what keeps you guys / girls from talking to people if you are interested in making friends or meeting people... Link to comment
