Some people said the scary man should have walked around the car door and kissed the girl because that was the opportunity.
He told them some opportunities disappear forever and some return.
“You know she kissed me first.”
They questioned him and said girls like to feel like they are being pursued and that they don’t do the pursuing.
He smiled and said if she wanted to be pursued she would make it known and not ask him to read her mind.
And then they all laughed because women love to have men read their minds even when they are supposed to know exactly what they are thinking.
“Don’t antagonize her, that is not going to serve you” said the woman who served as a female adviser.
“I am not trying to antagonize her. I am just living my life and maybe it will intersect with hers and maybe it won’t.”
“Well if you want the kind of intersection that ends in penetration you best open your eyes.”
He closed his eyes and asked if penetration was the sort of word that turned women on.
“With the right guy and the right moment almost anything he does is sexy. Stop annoying her and maybe she’ll let you find out.”
He laughed, “stop annoying her. From what you tell me men are naturally annoying.”
“That’s true, you guys are annoying but if you figure out how to not be like that for a little bit she might decide you deserve different treatment. But she might not and it could have nothing to do with being annoying or not.”
He rolled his eyes and told her that sort of wishy-washy crap was annoying.
“It is not like we haven’t done it a million times before.”
“That could be your biggest help or the thing that kills it. You just don’t know.”
“Well that is great advice. Good to know you know women.”
She laughed and said “we are all different” and reminded him “we still like getting laid too. In many ways it is much easier now than when we were in our twenties, but it is harder too.
We don’t have much tolerance for bullshit and you won’t talk our pants off unless we want to take them off because we know better than to think we have to put out to get a man.”
“Do flowers still work at all?”
“Sometimes, guess you’ll have to figure that one out on your own.”
He rolled his eyes and said he would consider being gay because at least he understood how men think.”
“It is good that someone does, because you guys are ridiculous.”
He told her he could say the same and watched as she shrugged her shoulders.
