....insert sourdough joke here....

Shouldn't have said anything. Should wrote your name and number on the paper sleeve the straw comes in and blown it at her. Classy.

OP- I picked up my ex wife (when we first met) when she was with her mom and dad....

I was smitten at the time- so I went for it. but more "respectfully" so to speak. asked her out right there in front of them.

and I was just wanting to screw her.

which of course ... well... anyways.

I ran into her father about a month later at a Burger King....while eating breakfast.


maybe there is something here....burger king....jack in the box..????


ps- be sure to flatter the mother...once she's on your side....you're in like Flynn....

When I broke up with my first husband my mother was on my case to stay with him. This continued on and on throughout the marriage. Too bad she couldn't date him.

The closest version to the truth is what you should have said.

"I saw you and your lovely friend (dont assume it was her mom, could be an older looking sister or something) enter and was compelled to turn around and enter as well, if you are single Id like to ask for your number for a coffee sometime'.

Say it on a straw, make a paper airplane or walk over and spit it out verbally...doesnt matter. What matters is acting on it, and being as honest about things as you can be without coming off as creepy.

With the Mother maybe..Does NOT work on hot girls .It's just creepy.IMO



when I say 'flatter' - I don't mean in any sort of sexual creepy way. I just mean come across as an intelligent, funny, respectful, interesting- non 'creep' kinda guy!!!

and ya- it DOES work on hot girls....

You should have introduced yourself,stated your name and occupation,made some small talk that flattered them(ie,jeez,I thought yous two were sisters), then offered to pay for thier meal and asked them to politely join you at your table were you could proceed to enchant them with your charm and see if you two are compatable.EASY,......
