So I met this woman along Davie Street and decided that I want to be her friend. Trouble is I’ve only met her three times and we’ve yet to properly exchange words.
The first time I met her she was a customer when I was working at Starbucks and even though this interaction was brief, I had decided at the time that I liked her. The second time I saw her I was in Mac’s and she was chatting with the lady – whom I also love for her friendliness at every hour – that works there. Then just yesterday we passed eachother while I was waiting for the bank machine in Super Valu, and did the whole smile and nod thing, or to “Tyra Banks” it for you: we “smodded.”
I don’t know what it is about this woman but I feel that we could be very good friends. The problem is I don’t know how to approach this tricky social situation. I want to be her friend without coming off as creepy, ie. I don’t want her to think I want to date her or that I just randomly ask people on the street to be my friends. Bring honest, I’m not sure there is a way to achieve this. Ideally I’m hoping that I’ll end up meeting her through other friends and can pursue the friendship via more socially acceptable means.
We shall see.
