Mr. Smooth Operator
For the record: The Princess loves being approached by confident and assertive men, sans pick-up line, but with oodles of wit and candor. Sets the right tone for getting to know said confident and assertive men. Also, I have nothing against younger or shorter men. Men are men. Like ogres and onions, they have layers – all different and unique. However, I have a non-negotiable. Being picked-up in any club is that non-negotiable. I go to dance. Not for the game. Or the hunt.
However, I am too impressed not to share…
Last night in club. The House bass is throbbing, the G&T is cold and the Princess is content (as content as one can be being pushed up against total strangers. What funâ€¦).
Young gentleman casually approaches. Apparently he has now decided that after checking the surrounds for obvious contenders, it should be safe to approach. I appear oblivious to his attention, but I am very aware. He is not as subtle as he would like to think. I stop dancing and lean against the counter top, idly playing with my drink. I`m willing him to come over. He needs to do his thing, I need to kindly turn him down and we can both get on with the evening. He comes to stand next to meâ€¦and gives me his undivided attention.
Come here often
Are you from around here
No. From the northern suburbs
Ohâ€¦ok. Hectic. That`s pretty far
Yesâ€¦I packed picnic basket and a passport to come out this way
Okâ€¦you want to go across the street. Maybe get something to eat
*My face must have said it all, because he backtracked.
Um…I`m not a weirdo or anything and you don`t look like the kind of girl to leave a club with a strange guy. Just thought, you know. It`s across the road.
Mmm..you`re right. I`m not the type. Besides, it`s nearly past my curfew.
Oh. Ok. â€¦.What? I meanâ€¦how old are you. Um..like 22?
Charming. No. I have not been 22 for 6 years now
Oh wowâ€¦you look really young
*I`m laughing so hard at this point, that my G&T is positively coming through my nose*
Yeah. Whatever. How old are you?
I`m 23. and don`t say I`m too young for you. Age is nothing but a number. Besides, you can`t help that you`re tall. I can`t help that I`m young.
Umâ€¦I can help that I`m tall. Because I`m only 5,8â€¦I`m wearing really high heels.
Oh wow. Those are really high. Well, look at it this wayâ€¦I come with youthful energy, I am willing to be house-trained and I own a stepladder. And I really dig older chicks.
At this point, impressed as I was, I decided that now was a good time to step away from creepy little nightclub urchin leering at me from chest height. I let the music save meâ€¦
*Yeah. I`m bringing Sexy Back
Those other f*ckers don`t know how to act*
