Last Sunday I started my day with church. I decided to head downtown to sit in a coffee shop and do my homework afterward. I sat sketching for a good 2 or 3 hours until I had finished. Once done I decided it was time for a change of scenery, my response to this was to head to a different coffee shop in another part of town. It was a particularly hot day so I sat with an iced coffee under the shade of a huge tree and worked on my English writing class’ homework. It wasn’t too heavy as it was just a reading and to write an essay.
After a time I became bored of my homework so I decided to walk around. I entered a local gay bar where I got some water and sat. I love to people watch at the local gay bars, but at 3pm on a Sunday, it was not cracking. After 20 min and 3 glasses of water, I moved to the bier Halle up the block. I got seated outside at my request regardless of the heat. A young 20 something woman came up to me and asked my drink order (more water), she was to be my server. After 2 or 3 min a guy walks up and introduces himself as my server instead. Now I don’t know if this was purposeful on his part or if it was server rotation issues, but I didn’t care. I didn’t catch his name as I wasn’t paying attention to him that closely. He took my order and walked away. After a few min he came back to chat with me. I thought he was very friendly and actually rather handsome.
We held a pretty good conversation regardless of his other tables. He never neglected them but he always came back to talk to me. After the 4th time, I noticed the connection and decided to give him my number the next time he came to my table. Unfortunately he didn’t return after 30 minutes and I had to leave to finish homework as it was already 630pm.
All the way home I couldn’t stop thinking of him so I made a plan to go back this upcoming Sunday to try again. I ended up back there with a few guy friends Saturday night for a few cocktails and to my deligh, he was there! I purposefully chose a table near one of his current ones so as to put myself within eyesight. He didn’t acknowledge me the whole time I was there (much to my chagrin). I figured that maybe he wasn’t interested like I had thought, and we left. I did not return on Sunday as planned after Saturday evenings awakening.
Fast forward to Monday around 6pm, my bestie and I agreed to have a drink at said bier Halle before heading home. We arrived and sat at the bar where we ordered drinks and food. After a few minutes, he walked into the bier Halle for his shift. I had no idea he would be there today, so I was pleasantly surprised. I promptly pointed him out to my bestie who agreed with my assessment of his good looks. After a while we caught eachothers eyes and nodded a greeting and acknowledgement, nothing more.
Once finished with our drinks and food, my bestie proceeded to go across the bar to chat a guy up she had an interest in. This is when he showed up! He stood next to me, facing me, leaning nonchalantly on the bar. He asked how my weekend was and we made a little small talk. He had to go care for his other tables so I waited for his return. I was excited to know he was still interested in our conversation after all!
I took the time while he was gone to write my name and number on a piece of paper. He never stopped back by. I was a little disappointed, but I have hope! I will be putting plan b back into motion this next weekend to finally give him my number.
I feel silly and foolish over this whole thing, but something about him and the way he looks at me when we talk…it makes me feel some type if way I have never felt before. The unfortunate side is that I really don’t even know if he is gay or just wants friends. So I will definitely update you once I know next week!
