Got Game?

Posted on February 27, 2008


I’m seriously concerned that I’ve forgotten how to flirt. I’ve been married now for almost three years, and being out of the game has definitely had a negative effect on my skills. Now, I’m not sure that I had amazing skills in the first place, but a remotely attractive female doesn’t really need to to get attention from guys. Really, I’ve just stopped paying attention.

Case in point: dude at coffeeshop. There is this adorable curly-haired blond that pours my coffee in the early morning. We’ve flirted for the past nine months. And by flirt, I really just mean get nervous around each other. I don’t know if it’s the sunny weather or my cute green t-shirt, but this morning he took it to the next level. He walked by me, patted my arm, and said, “how are you today?” I was so taken aback by this new move that I just crapped my pants in response.

Ok, I didn’t really. But I certainly didn’t take advantage of the window of opportunity he opened (I’m hoping that he likes me for my ridiculous nervousness). What would I have to gain for nurturing this flirtation even though I’m married? Anyone asking that question is retarded. A morning flirt is just the thing needed to energize you and boost your confidence for the whole day. I stand to gain much from this relationship.

Further, I don’t have anything to lose. I’m MARRIED, so I already have someone who loves me and all that crap. So how is it possible that I’m nervous around coffeeshop dude, who is probably five years younger than me, when really if I were rejected, it doesn’t matter?

I can only conclude that I’m rusty. Terribly out of practice. So I’m going to start practicing my game. Maybe I’ll even start dating. I’m gonna get my flirt on.
