The Dating Chronicles

The Strategy

Peter sipped his drink slowly as he stared across the room at a tall striking woman.  He had noticed her when she first walked into the party.  She was beautiful and distinctive as she moved slowly through the crowd.  He decided that he wanted to meet her but he couldn’t be ordinary and walk over to introduce himself. 

He had to make her notice him.  After all, he thought to himself, how could she not?  He knew he was irresistible with a handsome face and bulging biceps that stretched against the cloth of his jacket.  He worked hard to achieve a status of masculine distinction and he knew she would look good on his arm.

He decided to employ his usual strategy.  He began to stare at her until their eyes met and then he abruptly looked away.  He knew he had her attention when she smiled at him.  He decided to move slowly around the room to play havoc with her senses.  Eventually, he took a seat in her eye range and began the stare again.  

But this time, he didn’t look away when she turned to face him.  He stared intently with half-closed lids and waited.  She returned his gaze with equal footing and the battle was on.  For minutes, no one wavered, and then she broke the connection, with a radiant smile.

He watched her as she began to move toward him with calculated steps.  He smiled in anticipation.  He had won again and he felt smug as he stood to meet her.

“Hi,” she said in a low sensuous voice, as she looked up at him from under long dark lashes.  “I’m sorry for staring, but your fly appears to be open.  I thought you would like to know.” 

With a sly grin on her face, she strolled past him and walked out of his range.  Peter thought he would faint as he frantically searched for the men’s room.  He had never been so embarrassed.  But when he got there, he was even more humiliated to find out…it was not.
