Ok, so yesterday I was in this amazing coffee shop in a town near where I live, and well, there was a guy there. He was cute, geeky and reading Looking for Alaska. Just before I could say anything to him, he upped and left, but not before smiling at me :D
Now, my conundrum is this - I really want to see him again and get to know him, but I don't want to look like an idiot going to the coffee shop if he's not there. Should I go? Should I not? Help!
P.S. If he is there, I plan on flashing the nerdfighter sign at him. If he gets it, then I will be very very happy :D
Well. Only you know you're going to that cafe to scout out a person. No one else does.
How could you look like an idiot? People enter and leave cafes all the time.
And really, everyone in a cafe is either talking with someone, reading, or doing work. They're generally not looking at the door.
Have you considered bring a copy of Looking for Alaska when you go to the coffee shop? That is a good way to start a conversation, or be like, "I noticed you are reading LFA, what is your favorite part?" And if he's not there, you can just read a book by yourself. No one will suspect you to be silly.
You. Are GOING. To that cafe. NOW. And you will keep going until he appears, and then you will march up to him, toss your hair, and exclaim, "I can assume you are a nerdfighter because of your superlative choice in books, so let us hop on the train to Glasgow this weekend, go to Voltaire and Rosseau [or whatever - somewhere nerdy], spend our time submerging ourselves in suitably nerdy things, and then buy a smoothie, go home, and at my gate you have my permission to say, 'I had a really, really great time, Jenni. The best I've ever had. Do you ... do you think we could do this again sometime?" And after my approval, you can then kiss my hand really gently, look into my eyes, and organise a time when we can next meet up. Come on, then." OK? Exactly that. Go practice. Now.
