Oh god. I’m trying to psyche myself up to send that plumber with the gorgeous eyes a text asking if he’d like to go out for coffee. 😬🙈

I typed out this text & just have to hit send. 😬

“Hi *******. I know this is coming out of left field, but I was wondering if you’re single and would be interested in going out for coffee sometime.”

I’ve never done anything like this before. 😬🙈

Whats the worst that he can say? No? I would go for it. You got nothing to lose.
marsbar · F
[@332555,Novascel] Nada. Oh well. That’s fine. But I did hear from another guy. 😅
Novascel · M
[@73351,marsbar] Awe, well at least someone else seems interested🤗
marsbar · F
[@332555,Novascel] There are a few interested. There’s never a drought. 😅

Fortune favours the brave.

BlueVeins · 18-21, M

GBPackersFan · 41-45, M
Don’t do it plumbers are notorious pervs lol
marsbar · F
[@490377,GBPackersFan] Lol. He wasn’t. I got good vibes from him.
😬 Good luck. 🖤🤗
marsbar · F
[@605647,DarkHeaven] Thanks ☺️💗
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Go ahead and do it. Better than always wondering if.
marsbar · F
[@1149,MrBrownstone] Wondering for over an hour now. Lol
Coldplay · 56-60, M
Honestly. I would be flattered. So I would encourage you to do it. I think this is great and I hope he accepts.
marsbar · F
[@1185249,Coldplay] Thanks 😇
Do it! Do it!
Penny · 41-45, F
i wouldnt ask about the coffee until you got your answer if he's single or not.
geoam1 · 51-55, M
Go for it
Iamonfire666 · 31-35, F
Go for it girl!!! You never could know what could be if you don’t shoot your shot.
marsbar · F
[@10165,Iamonfire666] 😬
JRVanguard · 22-25
Do it!
Get those pipes cleaned
marsbar · F
[@551154,JRVanguard] You’re so bad J! 😆
[@551154,JRVanguard] bad boy. lol
Take a shot of liquid courage and do it. You are hella gorgeous unless he's in a relationship I'm positive he'll respond xD
marsbar · F
[@232861,MrBlueSky] Lol. Well he’s already seen me & my house.
[@73351,marsbar] So there's half the battle xD
Reject · 26-30, M
Yay! I’m so happy to see this post. Do it. There’s no regrets that way. Also, too many of us keep good feelings to ourselves when reaching out with our positive vibes only makes the world better for everyone.
marsbar · F
[@471800,Reject] We’ll see what happens S. I tried though right? 😇
Reject · 26-30, M
[@73351,marsbar] Yes! You did the best thing you could’ve done here. I have to do the same. I’ve been meaning to talk to this girl at the station but haven’t gotten the chance. Be sure to update us, okay?
marsbar · F
[@471800,Reject] Awww you should S. Start off as friends & see what vibes you get from her. Then muster up the courage. Just know that if things don’t go the way you want them to, you can pick up yourself & move on from it. 😇

I will. 😁
marsbar · F
Oh my god I’m so nervous that I can’t stop laughing. And you guys aren’t helping with my giggles. 😓😆🤣
marsbar · F
[@674752,ZenPearl] [@232861,MrBlueSky] [@10165,Iamonfire666] Sent
ZenPearl · F
[@73351,marsbar] Good girl 😌
[@73351,marsbar] He'd be a fool to not respond!
Leggs · 46-50, F
Just say, "...and maybe afterwards, you can give MY plumbing a good inspection and cleaning".

For real though, even if he declines for whatever reason, he will be flattered because when a woman asks out a man, it means he didn't have to do the asking so less work.
marsbar · F
[@1073121,Leggs] I hope he’s not weirded out. 😅
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@73351,marsbar] I was kidding about the plumbing joke. It is not real likely that he would mind being asked out though. I mean unless he is in his 20's, then it might go over kind of awkward.
marsbar · F
[@1073121,Leggs] I’m guessing he’s in his 30’s. And most of the guys I’ve dated are in that age range.
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
As a wise person told me once, “Babe Ruth holds the record for home runs. He also holds the record for being struck out most times. If you don’t swing you won’t connect”. That was years ago but still hold true. Also if you fail, hold your head high and try again another day.
marsbar · F
[@516380,SageWanderer] Wise words. Thank you ☺️
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
[@73351,marsbar] Yes they were. And from an old football coach many, many years ago.
Do it damn it ... 😄
marsbar · F
[@470400,Somewhereovertherainbow] Are you living vicariously through me? 😄
Harmonium1923 · 51-55, M
Life is short. Go for it.
marsbar · F
[@372263,Harmonium1923] I did. 👍🏼
Piper · 61-69, F
The only harm in sending that perfectly unobjectionable text, is of course the possibility of rejection. Only you know if the risk of that, is worth never knowing what might have happened if you didn't.😶
marsbar · F
[@910977,Piper] Yes. I’ll be fine with a rejection. Lol
Piper · 61-69, F
[@73351,marsbar] I see you've gone ahead and sent the text, and I hope the outcome is nothing but [i]good[/i].
marsbar · F
[@910977,Piper] Thank you 😊
TheSunisout · 56-60, M
Just give me his number and let me hook you up😂
JoyfulSilence · 46-50, M
Awesome!

Go for it. You only have one life to live!
Poppies · 61-69, F
If you do it, tell us what happens!
marsbar · F
[@557324,Poppies] So far no response.
test9876 · 51-55, M
Did You send it? It's better than saying 'help, i need you to come back here my toilet is clogged' lol
test9876 · 51-55, M
[@73351,marsbar] well that would be a nice ice breaker lol
marsbar · F
[@232861,MrBlueSky] He did, & I felt were vibing in our conversation.
[@73351,marsbar] YEEES 😩👌
marsbar · F
Ok SWeeps. I sent him the text an hour ago. Once I pressed send, I screamed. 🤣. I haven’t heard back yet, but it’s cool if I don’t, or he says no. It’s not going to affect me negatively. At least I said I did it & tried.

*pats myself on the back* 😂
ZenPearl · F
[@73351,marsbar] Yaaaaaaaaaaay
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
[@73351,marsbar] Good for you!

marsbar · F
[@377577,Shutterbug] Awww lol 🤗
JoePourMan · 61-69, M
Do it, nothing to lose.

Maybe end by saying "I hope you don't think I'm plumb crazy....." 🤣
marsbar · F

ronisme1 · 61-69, M

marsbar · F
[@361275,ronisme1] Yes
JustcallmeNameless · 31-35, F
I don't know it could go both ways. Some guys are flattered by it while others think it's a desperate move. Anyways good luck.
marsbar · F
[@585989,JustcallmeNameless] Thanks
ronisme1 · 61-69, M
[@585989,JustcallmeNameless] all guys would be flattered
JustcallmeNameless · 31-35, F
[@361275,ronisme1] no all guys would not be
Go for it, if it doesn't work out at least he can plunge your P trap..
marsbar · F
[@325375,Majorlatency] The words that come out of your mouth never cease to amaze me. 🤣🤣
[@73351,marsbar] yes I know. I'm sending myself straight to bed with no supper.
