All right, so I’ve been putting off sharing this, but you guys have been such a big help it would be an injustice if I don’t.
I did not see her when I was there, so I chilled in the car park for a few. There it was I picked her out in the crowd, jogging with another guy. I was about to get in my car, when I noticed he stopped to chat with some people and she left him. I got extra motivated when I saw that he left and was not waiting on her.
I was pretty frightened, nervous, asking so many questions as to who the guy was. Then an idea came to me. I saw a coconut vendor, so I went to get some and I got her one with a straw. When she was coming off the tracks she saw me and blushed! So I didn’t think twice I went in with, “Wow you’re pretty fast, figured you would need some electrolytes!” I fed her some facts (make believe too) about coconut water, and that lead us to talking.
Then I jumped out on the ledge without a parachute when she mentioned that she goes on the treadmill on days she can’t make it. I asked her out… and she revealed that she was dating someone already. I apologized, she said that I couldn’t know, and blah blah, she apologized too. Reflecting back on things, I messed up further by leaving. I told her that she didn’t have to apologize, and I am glad to meet her. She returned the same sentiments, and then I told her to have a wonderful night and slipped away.
I was thinking, perhaps I shouldn’t have left right away. She wasn’t even halfway done with the coconut! I should have waited until she was done? I do recall hearing her say, “Oh you’re leaving…” which means she was probably taken aback by it? In which case, I showed defeat. Oh gosh, I handled it pretty badly. I think I said, “Anyway, you probably have to get going now right?” I seriously can’t recall if I did or not… sigh.
I should have asked for her number or something? Perhaps talk to her some more… I messed up didn’t I? I mean, she said dating, she didn’t say she had a boyfriend. Now what I am going to do? Ha, she might probably never return to the park and stick to her treadmill.
