2) This guy sees something that he is interested in and, instead of letting this moment slip away, he approaches her in hopes of seeing her again.
There are so many of us who are quick to call someone thirsty. He held the door open and I wasn’t even there yet. She started following me on insta and is spamming my notifications. He is trying to get at me around all of these people. She always tries to hold a conversation when I see her, even when I’m with my friends. I can’t think of any more dumb scenarios that people blow out of proportion, but you get the point. Every time someone tries to get your attention or attempts to take things a step further, it doesn’t mean they are thirsty. They could simply be interested in you and are either trying to take their shot, giving you a shot to take or simply letting you know that they are interested.
I do know that there are some instances where people do go overboard and just don’t get the hint or went about getting your attention the wrong way. You have repeat offenders who are relentless and take the phrase “never give up” to heart or those who stumble over their words very often and try to make up for the last time the next time they see you or those who come on too strong and on to more than one person within a tight time frame. While trying to correct their actions can be seen as offensive and may make that person act out in the wrong place at the wrong time, you can’t assume that everyone who approaches you thereafter is the same. To some of their defenses, they may just have horrible dating skills. Others may just get straight to it. No point in chasing a shot, right?
This summer, or any season for that matter, take the time to actually let an individual capture your attention and see where it goes. Consider the fact the polite gestures and chivalry could possibly be just that and not a dry mouth begging for your juices. Seriously, who really likes the overly aggressive people whose approach is equivalent to how they would approach anyone on the street? It’s understandable if you are not interested, you won’t like them all, but remember that second chances aren’t always guaranteed so sometimes a person has to strike while the iron is hot, or at least hint to you that you should strike.
