Success Coach - Doc Love
Hi, I’m a successful writer and one of my plays is about to open here in the San Francisco area. I’ve been attending all the rehearsals, working very closely with the director.
One of the actresses in my play, “Samantha”, has been giving me what you call a lot of ‘buying signals.’ I know you like to have all the statistics, so here they are: She’s about 5’5’’, 120lbs, with short dark hair and a very sexy English accent. On the rating scale I would say that she’s a very strong “7”. Almost an “8” but not quite.
Since I’m the writer of the play, I have a lot of power and prestige in this situation and Samantha seems to have really put me on a pedestal. Over the last few weeks the touching that I’ve been getting from her has steadily increased. She’s also been giving me a lot of those, dreamy, “I want you” looks and she continually tells me how handsome and talented I am.
Now everyone on the set knows that she has a boyfriend. I’ve heard her mention him once or twice. But she kept giving me so many green lights that I finally just asked her for her home phone number and she cheerfully gave it to me without any hesitation. I waited a week and then called and asked her out for coffee.
She was thrilled to hear from me, but when I asked her out she said “You know that I have a boyfriend, right?” and I said “Samantha, it’s only coffee, I’m not asking you to get married.” She laughed and then agreed to meet me the next night at The Java Joint downtown.
When we got together she was more flirtatious than ever. She kept touching my arm, bumping my knee and giving me more of those looks. So when I walked her to her car I went for it, and she did not mind a bit. We had a serious touchy-feely make-out-fest in that parking lot that lasted a long fifteen minutes.
Before we said goodbye I mentioned a book about acting that she’d probably like and told her to call me after she checked it out. (I wanted to see if she’d call me.) Five days later she called.
We talked for about five or ten minutes and then I suggested that she come meet me at my place. I told that I’d make dinner for both of us.
She seemed to get kind of nervous and spooked when I did that, so I backed off and made another coffee date with her.
So she shows up right on time, wearing a very short skirt and a low cut blouse. It was the most provocative outfit I’d ever seen her wear. She also had a ton of sweet smelling perfume on.
Besides that, this second coffee date went exactly the same way as the first. We spent an hour and a half having a great conversation and then we ended up back in the parking lot for another long makeout session. I tried again to see if she’d come with me to my apartment but she said that she had to get home because her boyfriend was coming over after his gig. (He’s a jazz musician.)
Anyway, I really like Samantha but it seems as if this whole thing with her just isn’t going anywhere, like it’s stalled. I’m sure if I called her again that she’d meet me somewhere again and it would be the same scenario for a third time and that just isn’t going work for me.
I’m about ready to just blow her off. But I thought that you might have a clever idea or two, Doc. What do you think?
P.S. Also, what do you think I should say if she calls me again?
Dino - who is a bit frustrated
Let me commend you on an excellent job of ‘closing’ this gal. She gave you the buying signals and you responded appropriately. A lot of guys would have been stymied by her mixed messages, but you followed “The System”.
“The System” says, if she flirts with you, and you’re interested, then keep closing no matter what tests she throws at you. Let her do her flitty butterfly, waxing and waning routine, but you, the man, stay consistent and steady as a steam locomotive, slowly but surely chugging up the hill. That’s just what you did Dino. Good work!
All right, so obviously I wouldn’t recommend that you take this thing with Samantha seriously. You’ve got the right spirit when you say that you’re ready to shine the whole thing on. You’re not attached. You’re heart’s not invested in any way and that’s just how you should keep it in this situation.
But you can still have some fun here. Look at it this way. She’s keeping you ‘on the side’. Ok. So why not do the same thing with her? Don’t take her out anywhere special. No dinners. No concerts. No dancing. She’ll just be your Java Joint make out buddy who you don’t need to spend any more than six bucks on. To you Psych majors, all’s fair in love and war.
So keep the frequency rate down. Only see her every two or three weeks. If nothing progresses any further than it already has, just look at it this way. Fifteen minutes of kissing and cuddling with a pretty young woman for the cost of two cappuccinos, ain’t a bad trade off.
Keep in mind that if she’s makin’ out with you, that her relationship with her boyfriend has to be on the skids. He doesn’t know it yet but he’s a ‘dead man walkin.’ Once her Interest Level in him sinks another ten points, he’ll be getting the old heave ho.
Whatever. Just let her do what she’s going to do. Meanwhile, you’re going to be hustling lots of other women. You’re going to find some candidates who not only have high interest in you, but also don’t have any boyfriends in the background.
You’re not going to be one of those saps who get all emotionally invested in a girl who’s unavailable, hoping and waiting for her to leave her boyfriend. Just think of Samantha as your little, diversionary entertainment chick.
Let her call you. She most likely will. When she does, have her meet you at a different coffeehouse. But no restaurants where you’d have to spend extra money on her.
When you’re chatting with her, keep it light. Don’t mention the boyfriend. Don’t get into an analysis of the situation with her. Don’t make her feel like you want ANYTHING from her. Do not pressure her in any way. And let her do all the touching until you get back to the parking lot for your fifteen minutes of delight.
Who knows, she just might see the light and let you know that she wants to take things further with you. But if that’s going to happen, the initiative has to come from her. If it never does, who cares?
Remember, guys, it’s more fun to date girls who are available.
