In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
I had success giving my phone number out instead of asking for hers.
I read somewhere, years ago, that this is less intimidating. The ball is the woman's court, and she is more at ease with this.
In my case , I made my intention known. Gave out my home and work numbers. Was hoping for a call within a week or so....I received a call at home within 12 hours or so.
I do not own a guitar.
I defied the odds, I guess.
Ah, but if you had been carrying a guitar, it might have been one hour.
I'd like to see a follow-up study about what happened when the subject finds out the man cannot play for his life.
I was actually somewhat shocked that I received a call so soon.
20 years and 8 months later, she stills calls me almost every day at work and we've lived together for 20 and 1/2 years.
I'm thinking that , since I met her where I was working at the time and I am not a musician ( nor did I work in a music store) , it would be difficult to explain why I am working in a lumberyard with a guitar.
