Ok guys - I took your advice...

Tonight, I actually made it to his house and left a note on his door.

The note said - "I hope you remember me - we met at the (name of the bar) friday night? You left me in such a haze that I might have acted a little strange...and I realized that I didn't ask if I could see you again. If you're intersted, give me a call - '555-3275'." And signed my first name.

Ok - so I lied a little. I parked a block away and walked up to the house. And I didn't actually leave it on his door - I left it in the box next to the door.

But I didn't drive by 6 millions times working up the nerve to do it, so that is a plus. I was so nervous that I threw up walking back to my car. He lives on a very busy street and the streetlight cast a HUGE shadow of me on the house...just knew I was going to get caught.

Now the ball is in his court. If he's interested, he'll call...Right???

My hands are still shaking.

Yes, he'll call IF he's interested.

But don't get your hopes up. I've found that if you do, and he doesn't, it's a letdown, true--but one that YOU created. That's why I think it's always best to let the man take the initiative in calling--and if he doesn't, then why do you want a man who doesn't want you?

Good luck...

Oh good good good!!! I am so glad you did. And I agree don't get your hopes up. He will call if he is interested because now he knows that you have made an attempt. You have to let us know what happens!

AAAAHHHHH!!!!

My nerves are working overtime today!

The phone rang once today - only once. I didn't recognized the number, so I let the machine get it. I was all excited...until I heard my mother's voice coming over the machine wondering why I wasn't answering.

Have to keep telling myself - "Don't get your hopes up!!!"

Not getting my hopes up though.

It's been a couple weeks - and haven't heard from him.

I even went back to the bar last weekend to see if he was there. He wasn't. (But I did see another guy that I hit on once with an x-rated matchbook....That is another story.)

I give up.

I think giving up on this guy is the right thing to do.
