At The Bar

Last week I went to the bar for open mic night in the middle of downtown. Dress pants, shirt – I look good, meet up with some friends there. I’m relaxing with my friends, playing Chess with my buddy and I keep glancing at these girls and eventually they come hang out behind me. A friend’s friend that came with him opened because he knew her and what not. Come to find out she wasn’t really interested in him anyway, he was persistent enough that I didn’t want to interject but wasn’t rude to her. The time that I did spend with her alone, I showed her my magic trick which wow’ed her(It always amazes people) and she said she could beat me Chess(Yeah I’m obviously not bringing that to a bar if I’m trying to win someone over) – I basically snap my finger but the sound that comes from it is thundering and reverberates.(Trust me you’d be like “WTF, that’s cool” if you saw me do it and people look silly trying to copycat me) They leave because it’s getting late and the girl that I wanted to go for seemed glued to her and she was being polite.

Here’s another thing, when I’m in public I always introduce myself as “Kevin” because for some reason people have trouble pronouncing my real name. Stupid so I use the excuse that it’s my “English” name. Which my friend also was mocking me for saying that granted he was drunk.

Here’s the catch – I’m Anaphylactic to alcohol no debate I’ve tried all sorts of alcoholic beverages.

Yes, making out with a girl who’s been drinking effects me.
I sip on a Roy Rogers all night

Tonight, I go with two friends. One of whom has no problem being confident and snagging girls up. My other friend is a little on the heavy end and I find him creepy looking but my other friend and I said we’d work together to get friend No. 2 laid. Ends up nagging me most of the night and complaining of how I’m not doing work for him. I also wore my wolf hat which I got tons of compliments from girls, who occasionally tugged on me to tell me how awesome it was. I won’t next time and then I didn’t initiate conversation with two separate girls who kept looking my way – sorry I’m new to this, I’ll adjust to gestures and body language soon enough

Halloween reference – that girl I tried to save from jail with sword in hand was there, she stared at me as I passed by her to go get quarters from the machine for the pool table. I didn’t look at her or make any gesture because she didn’t respond well to my message.(IE no interest based on her responses/review from OT lol) but maybe next time I’ll make an effort to be friendly – I should’ve said something

I’ll be going to the bar alone Friday, Saturday to test the waters solo. Then I’ll pick my wingman to go with if that doesn’t go well, girls seem to go to bars in pairs or more anyway.

Conclusion from these nights, I think I’m going to go to the bar alone that way I don’t have to deal with the hassle of my friends. I can enjoy the music, game on TV and if I want to have a conversation – I’ll initiate. When my friends are egging me on to making forced moves, it’s just out of my comfort zone and quite annoying. I’m comfortable enough with “Kino” or w/e and girls will certainly be okay with me having my hands on their back and swaying them a bit. Whispering in their eye is easy, I guess. Crazy one liners, I’m going to approach them with a quaint conversation and maybe some level of forwardness until I’m comfortable being suave with the opposite sex.

Excuse my lack of structure/grammar, I’ll fix it up when it’s not 4:AM
