A guy shared a story of how he was working as a photographer for a sports event a few years back and got to know this girl who was also working in the stadium.
He shares that he was single at that time and the guy was very chummy with him which led him thinking that he had a chance.
He then plucked out the courage to ask her out only to find out that she was just being her friendly self with him just like she would be with anyone.
Here is the story
“I get to work as a sports photographer for an ongoing sports event many years back.
Matchday 1 : There’s this girl, a volunteer making sure everything is in place. She’s standing next to where I was photographing. After a little “hi-hello”, we talk at the half time and I tell her about the organisation I work with. A nice little conversation and then the night ends.
A day before matchday 2 : We meet again near the venue as we had some work to do, another “hi-hello” and a nice little conversation. This time we exchange Instagram IDs and vibe over how we both have broken phones.
Matchday 2 : We meet again at the same place, but I’ve to shoot some videos. So, I have a rushed conversation with her. Me & my team had to leave early cause the match got cancelled.
At this point it’s become an inside joke in my team that “this is my stadium girlfriend”
Later we exchange phone numbers over Instagram.
We have 2 nice little conversations over text, and my brain is like : Hmm, interesting girl. It’ll be nice to get to know her and maybe ask her out.
Me to myself : okay, you have 4 more matchdays to go. Take it slow, she’s probably just being friendly. Don’t rush in based on the inside jokes. Maybe you can try to flirt a little, either way only ask her out on the last match day!
Matchday 3 : Cancelled.
Me happily texting her for another nice little conversation.
Me : I should ask her for a hang out.
My brain : You’d be rushing in! BAD IDEA.
Me : Ahaaa, I’ll just casually slide it through
Me over text : I think, you are an interesting person… and it’ll be nice to get to know you! Wanna hang out some day?
Instant Regret. And before I could unsend this message, she’s already seen it.
Her : Sorry if you got any wrong ideas
Now, I have 3 more matchdays to go and I guess it’ll be awkward.
Should’ve taken it slow and only asked her out on the last day, wouldn’t have had to worry about the awkward moments.
Now I’m out here with the song lyrics, “wise men say, only fools rush in” playing on back of my head.
I hope I manage to play it cool, for the rest of the matchdays.”
