Krankor Posted May 15, 2017 Share Posted May 15, 2017 So, I like to keep my hair really short and so I go get it cut about every 3-4 weeks. I go to a not fancy but decent walk-in place. About a third of the time this certain woman who as it turns out is 38 (I'm 40) ends up cutting my hair. We usually make small talk, of course. The last time she cut my hair was maybe about a month ago. Over the course of the conversation I mentioned how I was newly single again (it came up naturally, I wasn't dropping a hint) and she talked about her boyfriend, how he's a chef so she gets some nice meals and he gets free haircuts. I almost took her mentioning a boyfriend as a "just in case you mentioned being single for a reason, I have a boyfriend" thing. If that was the case, she got the wrong idea. She's a nice lady. But I'm not at all attracted to her. So I've been on this dating app off and on since my last girlfriend broke up with me. I took my profile down a couple of weeks ago but put it back up yesterday. Earlier today the woman I've been speaking of--who as it turns out is on the same app--messaged me. She just said "Hey there" with a winking emoticon. I haven't responded. I'm fairly sure she recognized me. She sees me somewhat often, I have pictures on my profile, and I list my occupation which is pretty distinctive. I didn't respond. Like I say, she's a nice person and I'm flattered and all but I have zero romantic interest in her. But since I quasi know her I wonder if I should respond. I'm just not sure what to say. And if I don't how should I handle it if she cuts my hair again? Just ignore it and act natural? Link to comment
