I'm Now on Facebook

I created a page on Facebook, you can find it here.  Like it, share it, tell all your friends about it.

Hopefully it can be a meeting place for the dateless lads and ladies out there as well as those who want to give us advice.  So I hope to see you there.

The Girl at the Pharmacy

It's been a couple weeks since I've posted.  I have a few posts I've worked on but they're kind of stuck in the editing process.  They seem flat to me so I've scrapped them for now.  What I'd like to talk about is a situation I have at the moment.

There's a girl who works at the pharmacy in one of the grocery stores I shop at.  We'll call her "Sarah".  She's worked there for a while, I'd say at least 2 years.  At my last job she'd come in every once and a while, most of the time she'd just walk around and buy nothing, though I think once she bought some wrapping paper or something of that nature.

In any case, whenever I'd go to the store I'd sort of steal glances of her if I walked by the pharmacy.  Most of the time I'm pretty sure she doesn't notice me at all.  I'm pretty sure on my last visit there, she did.  Obviously I can't be sure, but I just got this feeling that she know I was checking her out.  I could be wrong though.

Anyway, I'm not sure what I should do about this.  Yeah, I'd like to ask her out, but how?  Asking out the girl at the pharmacy counter is a bit like asking out the bank teller, nice idea but totally unrealistic.  I tried looking her up on facebook to see if she had a boyfriend, but no such luck.  Either she doesn't have a facebook account, or she hides it.

So, what to do?  I've only ever talked to her two or three times in my life, and never about anything except business.  The next time I'm picking up a medication for somebody do I chat her up, flirt a little?  Give her a note asking for her phone number/giving her mine?  I've never seen her anywhere except at the pharmacy or at my old job, so I have no idea where I'd run into her out in the world.

Advice?  I'm not sure how many readers I have on here, but any advice is welcome.
