    I've got the best mental image of you wearing a cravat and going up to her with a dodgy russian accent asking her if she wants to get together later to compare insurance.

    I tell you I have laughed my a## off on these forums a few times and please don't get me wrong sylvestermorgan I am not belittling your woe, just that some of the comedy suggestions on here have had me literally crying with laughter, truly brilliant; the mix tape, crotch grab and the chloroform is legendary :lol:

    Back to your woe however, if I were you mate I'd simply start by saying with confidence just hello, if you already smile at each other, then keep that up each time you see her for a couple of times, then you will feel much more at ease to start saying hi how are you and then eventually ask her if she wants to grab a coffee.

    That or throw caution to the wind, tell her she's fit and ask her out on a date if she turns out to be single.
  • Thanks for all the suggestions everyone (comedy ones too!). Haven't seen her at all today so no opportunity to say hi as yet. Maybe tomorrow....

    You do know we're going to want regular updates?

    And if all else fails email her a link to this thread...

    She reads the forum and has handed in her notice to escape the stalker :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • LOL. She's probably writing on some forum somewhere how to tell this guy who she keeps running into in the corridor to go away!

    No dude, stay positive; if she's engaging you and smiling your halfway there...

    When I was a uni many moons ago, in fact my first week there, I spotted this amazing looking lass.
    That week I did the whole cheesy riding passed her a couple of times whilst smiling thing (on my cheapo student bike; just thought I'd keep it slightly bike related there for you), which got a good smile back.
    A couple of days later I bumped in to her in town and we got chatting and that very night we played tonsil hockey and the next thing I know I'm going out with her!!
    OK, so 3 months down the line it ended and I realised she was a right slapper and in fact I didn't have the pulling power of Brad Pitt, she was just the easiest lass I have EVER met and would have had a go on Gandhi; but the principle remains of you don't know if you don't try!

    We await your next bulletin with bated breath :wink:

    Still, if you want to try and impress the ladies by impersonating characters from car insurance ads, you could do a lot worse. Not that I'm thinking of any Death Wish directors in particular.... :wink:

    Exactly, come on man give us the ins and outs of the in and outs. You're not still practicing chat up lines in front of the mirror are you?

    Sticking with the sitcom analogy, perhaps the venture has reached Peep Show levels of seediness/failure/embarrassment and the original poster would rather not comment.....

  • LOL! If the Meerkat doesn't work, there's always the chuchill dog impression, and if that doesn't make her run for the hills there's the ultra-cringeworthy Michael Winner adverts. Hmmm.

    Back in the real world, like yesterday not seen about the place so nothing to report. The Sky News helicopter is hovering overhead ready to break the story should events progress!
  • hopper1hopper1 Posts: 4,389
    She's still not there?... Best you check the obituary section in the local rag....

    I don't want to be holding my breath unnessesarily now, do I? :roll:

    So Watson, it's the last two weeks in August and she hasn't been seen today or yesterday. Could it be she's on HOLIDAY?

    With her boyfriend......... :cry:

    Please tell me you weren't about to burst into song with the lyrics for "The littlest hobo" theme tune?

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down,
    Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
  • The Littlest Hobo, wasn't that the wolf-like dog that went around helping people before toddling off on his travels again?

    An update, after a bit of fact-finding harnessing the power of Facebook, I was able to put a name to the face and then do some digging. Unfortunately said girl does indeed have a boyfriend so, as someone suggested, that probably explains where she is!

    So, like the Littlest Hobo, until tomorrow we just keep moving on...

    Anyway, thanks for all the encouraging messages, has amused me for the last few days. Back to talking about bikes now!

    A little creepy that you've found out her name (and relationship status) on FB before actually talking to her. Hope she never reads this thread...

    I wouldn't say so particularly. I got together with my ex thanks to Facebook, we vaguely knew each other around the university, she checked out my Facebook status, I checked out hers. We bumped into one another in town one night and away we went.

    We're all on the same network here so, unless people impose privacy settings, everyone can see everyone's pages (if you know who you are looking for).

    No, no, no, no... NO!

    Get back on Facebook, find the boyfriends name, go around to his (when she's not there)... And F*ck him up!! :shock:
    Then continue on your quest to form a meaningful relationship with said young lady.

    Failing that, post her Facebook details here, and the forumites will have a word with her, on your behalf :wink:

    Fair point.

    Certainly seems more effort than just saying hello... but I guess we're all past that point on this thread :)

    EDIT - Actually, post a link to FB and we can all check her out :lol:
  • As I remember, the littlest hobo did not move on until the challenge was met. I can't remember him looking at the old folk in the burning building and saying, "#$%^ that, I off.
  • :lol:

    Yes, don't give up at the first obstacle; a real wolf-like stalker – er, I mean "determined admirer" – would simply interpret that info as her playing hard to get. :D
  • BhimaBhima Posts: 2,145
    Exactly. You've gone as far as stalking, why give up now? :lol:

    If she's smiling at you, she might be bored of her boyfriend. ;)
