When my friend and I first moved into the apartments for Hartford CT, we met a woman who lives across the hall. We both thought she was pretty attractive and wanted to date her, but only one of us would be able to do so. My friend tried his best to hit on the woman and ask her out, but she said no. After seeing how badly my friend struck out, I decided to take a more laid back approach. I would casually talk to the woman in short conversations and say humorous things to make her laugh.
Eventually I asked the woman if she wanted to go out to lunch with me and she agreed. We went to a local Chinese restaurant that has an amazing lo mein dish. The woman and I talked and laughed. We had such a good time that we went to see a movie later in the week. When I told my friend what happened, I thought he would be a little jealous, but he was actually very supportive. He accepted that the woman wasn’t into him and decided to move on to someone else.
The woman picked a scary movie to see. Even though she gets really scared during the movie, she likes that feeling when her heart is racing from fear. During the movie, she was grabbing onto my arm before the scary moments happened, and then she gripped really tight once they happened. It was pretty funny to see her get so scared. Later that night, we went out for ice cream at another local place and shared a sundae. Coincidentally, we both share the same favorite flavor of ice cream. After the date was over, We went back to the apartment and kissed each other goodnight. My friend gave me a high five for the kiss.
