What’s a boy in “glances” supposed to do…

I still say there needs to be a cruising protocol. It needs different applications for different arenas, but we need rules and guidelines to follow.

I’ve played “eye and smile” tag with someone around the building for months now. I’m pretty sure he works in a completely different area from me as I only see him in the cafeteria or the Starbucks, but it’s clear there’s a mutual “i think you’re cute” going on. This morning it was in the Starbucks, he was a few spots ahead of me in line, but he was with co-workers, so it’s not like I could do much about it. Plus the service got slow right after he ordered his drink, so there was no way I was going to be waiting alongside him for our respective coffees. There wasn’t even a good opening to slip him a calling card, which is just as well since I didn’t have any on me. Oh well, maybe I’ll spot him around again.*

In other news, my co-worker Betsy’s husband thinks I look like Darius Rucker… Hootie**. We are not amused.

* Yes, of course I did what any man would do in this instance. I left a craigslist missed connection ad.

** Upon further research, Darius Rucker does not and never has gone by the nickname Hootie–my bad.

    Hootie?
    Nah, that just ain’t right.

    I still maintain that you’re friendly deli owner Cleveland Brown from “Family Guy”.
    Hey! You’re getting your own show!

    What the hell, I’ll be Quagmire. It’s closer to the truth than I’ll ever admit to under oath.

    A Craig’s List ad? Oi!
    Well, keep us informed on all the shenanigans.

    I just like getting the glances. I file them away as flattering, and usually glances don’t involve messy health or emotional issues.

  3. BitterCupOJoe says:

    I, ah, actually thought you looked like Hootie, too. I just never said anything, because I’m nice like that.

    Looked at the ad. Spot on. If he looks at Craigslist he’ll be on you like white on rice.

    Good luck.

    I don’t put much stock in Craigslist’s “missed connections” these days. Whenever I’ve posted, it got pulled within a couple of hours. Methinks the CL users are a little too flag-happy.

    Well, I’ve seen Darius Rucker and I’ve seen small pictures of you on this blog. It never once occurred to me that you look like him. And was he Hootie? I thought the drummer was Hootie…..

    Enjoy the glances and flirting! Sometimes they are the best part–ENJOY!

    @William Mize: Cleveland!? I don’t think so!

    @Chris & @Fredo: I’ve had moderate success with.. ok, well it got me dating this guy that turned out to be not all that great a guy. And I have seen a lot of stories and blog posts about overzealous CL flaggers. I don’t usually hear about them flagging “missed connections” ads.

    So if Darius Rucker isn’t Hootie – does that make you “Blowfish”?
