The Game is Afoot...

Tonight, without further ado I began my recon of NotSoccer.

So far I have learned the following:

He likes working with women.
He likes blondes (which I am not, nor will I ever be).
He likes rock music and my music taste (or lack thereof) needs work.
He will send me an email. In part because I gave him said email addy so that he could send me a list of cds that he thinks are the must haves of any collection.

This was a pretty easy task tonight. I just happened to walk into the shipping area of my part time job and there he was. I realized something else tonight, I haven't even balked at the fact that he's hairy, not one quiver of disgust not one blip about having him shave or anything...just me and NotSoccer and a lot of laughing over my music choices. Now all I need to do is get someone to mention his girlfriend so I can find out how that part is working.

my friends and i were just talking bout hairy men last nite... i'm not a big fan of hairy men...

so no one (including himself) has actually ever mentioned his girlfriend before?

Music is a great way to make an excuse to talk to a guy...there's much longevity since guys like to think they're such an authority on what great music is and are willing to go on and on about teaching girls....

As for segwaying to the girlfriend ask him "Did you have to teach your girlfriend what great music is" or something along those lines.

Sounds like you've made some progress! I agree with Shannon...music is always a great way to get a conversation going with a guy. And a fabulous way to make them feel like an expert. Maybe you could jokingly ask him if he has plans with the gf this wkend? (or another wkend).

I think asking about a gf is an immediate "Hmmm, she wants me" line which isn't always a bad thing. I like it because it's something you can cover up if they DO have a gf.

The Bee Gees.. now they are very hairy men!
What NotCarrie said about asking a simple question about the g/f.. they know what we're up to just like we know what they're up to when they ask us a question like that. Maybe you can ask someone else about it? :-) unless you want him to know you're interested

Ask "and things at home? All well? With parents, brothers, girlfriend, dog?"... work it in as a joke. Try not to come off as too much stalker, though... seldom does guy like that (and if he does, then you're in a LOT of trouble...)

Phew.

So glad you're working on expanding your musical tastes.

It's a very important part of life,

Plus, music guys are hot.

Well, true samantha fashion to accept all the flaws... it's a good thing I think

NotCarrie said...

Yeah, and there could be worse flaws, haha.

If asking about the girlfriend seems too direct, you could just say (very jokingly) something like "Man, I was talking to my guy friend about this, and he was all "Girls don't know anything about music." Do you think that's true? Like, have you had to educate every female you've met about it?"

If he's got a girl, it gives him a great opportunity (and a slight nudge) to bring it up. Not the most surefire way to find out, but much less scary for the timid amongst us (i.e., me).

Personally, I like a hairy guy. Beyond that, my boyfriend loves redheads. But he's IN LOVE WITH a blond. (or whatever color I'm covering up with blond these days, probably gray)... ;)
