Would you smile?
I recently talked to a single man who’d met a woman at a local coffee house — he was very interested in her, gushing about how gorgeous she is. He said when he saw her across the room he couldn’t take his eyes off her. It was embarrassing because he kept staring and she kept catching him staring! She would just grin at him and keep reading her paper. Finally he got the nerve up to walk over to her table and strike up a conversation. He did end up asking her out and was thrilled to report she said yes.
Come to find out these two had worked at the same law firm for two years. He had never noticed her at the office. Not once. The following day he realized he passed her desk several times during the day and made a very interesting observation. He never noticed her because she looked so serious while working; she never cracked a smile. She didn’t catch his eye. In the coffee house however, the first thing that got his attention was her smile. He said she seemed like two different women in each location.
