I think for a lot of us, the reason weâ€™re single is because we lack confidence.. I mean, let’s face it, I canâ€™t think of anything more humiliating than approaching an attractive guy and being shot down. I have since come to the conclusion that weâ€™re all controlled by â€˜the fearâ€™.
However, like most girls, I have random bursts of confidence that have given me the chance to meet amazing peopleâ€¦ Here comes an example: A few years ago I was on a train journey from Manchester to Blackpool when I noticed the most ADORABLE guy.
He had that delightful vacant indie look about him. I found myself glancing up and smiling at him the entire time, he however, must have been so freaked out by my display that he didnâ€™t say a word and kept looking down at his comic book (Yes! He reads comic books, and that happens to be a turn on for meâ€¦ go figure?).
As the stops until between the train’s current location and Blackpool station begin to get fewer and fewer – although he could get up and leave at any time – I felt like I had to do something, he could be the one! So I scribbled my name and number onto a piece of paper, and as I stood up to leave the train I handed him the note.
I was strong and didnâ€™t look back.
On the walk away from the station I felt amazing. If he doesnâ€™t text me I havenâ€™t lost anything because I donâ€™t know him. But he had to appreciate what it took for me to do thatâ€¦
He text me within minutes.
This guy has been one of my best friends for almost 5 years now, but he certainly didnâ€™t text me that first time because he wanted to start a beautiful friendship. He was curious, and impressed by my bravery. He has told me since that heâ€™s never seen anyone sexier than the girl I was when I handed him that note.
Howeverâ€¦ I do understand that handing out your number to a perfect stranger probably isnâ€™t the safest idea, so thankfully I have a solution. Thereâ€™s a brilliant new website called losemynumber.co.uk that is perfect for this. Basically the website provides you with a secondary number that gets diverted to your phone. You can disconnect the number if you tire of the guy but itâ€™s a great thing to have if you want to be more outgoing! Plus, the website is completely free so no excuses!
Happy flirting ladies.
