100 lb. Club - I need some boy help-you know, SERIOUS business.

Yes, I'm joking about the serious business, well, kinda ;)

Here is the story. I have zero clue on how to talk to boys. Z E R O! Yesterday I'm phone shopping with my mom for my new cell phone. I go into a store and a really nice guy is helping me. A really nice, cute, guy I should mention. So, we are talking about the differences between a blackberry and a couple other phones. I ended up getting the blackberry. Throughout all this he and I are chit chatting, I find out that he is moving today. I'm totally oblivious that he might be flirting or anything with me. In the end, I get the blackberry and I say something like, it's going to take me 2 months to figure all this out. ( lol ) and he says if you have any questions you can call me, ( he programmed his number in my phone) even though I won't be here, I'd be happy to help you figure out anything you have questions on. I say oh, ok, thanks. Then he tells me about 4 more times, any problems I have, I can call, text or email him. He then gives me his business card that has his phone and email on it. I tell him thanks for all the help, and good luck moving and I'm out the door with my new toy ( blackberry ) My mom says as we are pulling out, you better stay in touch with him. He was flirting with you and told you a handful of times to call, text or email him with any questions. I kinda rolled my eyes at this and said sure mom, he was flirting with me. She said how many ppl you know out their phone numbers right in your phone if they don't want you to use it? I said IDK, nobody's ever done that to me.

Sooooo, here is my question, is my mom right? Does he want me to stay in touch with him? And if yes, HOW? I only met him this one time. How would I go about calling or texting him out of the blue?

Yes, it doesn't need to be said, I don't know how to talk to guys. :o But on the same side, it would be kind of cool to stay in contact with him, cause he was sooooo nice, and, like i said, was cute....

ugh....I'm lost! HELP!

Good call Belezura.......just text saying you are testing it out...if he responds with a question or starting up a conversation I think he is for sure into you. I have bought plenty of phones and never has a salesperson told me to call them personally or actually programmed their number into my phone! Go for it, worst case he was just being polite, no harm no foul!

I've had lots of sales guys say "we're here to help", "come in anytime", "I'd be happy to help you anytime" but I've never had them program their number into my phone!!!

Definitely text him - it's a good way to test the waters.

Oh my gosh girl, he was sooo flirting. Im with everyone else -- text and say you're testing.

Then come back and let us know what happened! :)

Yeah I have never had a sales guy give me his personal number. He is totally flirting. Keep us posted girly :)

Agreed with all the above...

Just text him saying you are having such and such problem with the phone (make something up) and see what he says! more chit chatting can lead to a date :)

Woohoo, I agree with everyone else here - he was flirting hard core, and there's no harm in reciprocating that interest. Worst case scenario it doesn't work out, and you're no worse off than you started :)

From a guys perspective, he is totally flirting with you and likes you. Text him now!

Thanks guys! It should be said that he was not moving locally. He was moving a few hundred miles away! But we had a nice chat on how he didn't have any strings holding him back here, and if he was going to do something crazy, now was the time to. He said if things didn't work out to where he was moving he could very easily move back.


Still think I should shoot a text his way? You know just for testing purposes ;) and thanking him again for being helpful? He even gave me a 25% disct on the car charger. He said what are they gonna do to me? You're gonna be my last transaction, so I'll give you a disct for that.

Call him and say you can't work out the Blackberry planner :D and ask him to take you through it.... then you can casually mention which nights that week you have free.... *snicker*

so what happened with your salesman? did you contact him?


Here is what I sent, tell me if it sounded alright.

Hi there, you sold me a phone a few days ago. I thought I'd sent a text test to you, and to thank you again for being so helpful.

Hope that doesn't sound to dorky lol

Im excited for you. Just think of it this way....if he wasnt meaning for you to call him, then he's moving and you'll never have to see him or talk to him again. Be sure to let us know ASAP after you text him!! Good luck, it sounds like a good thing to me!

ok, so here is the update. I'm not sure what to think of it at all. Remember, from what i know, he was moving the day after I got my phone....here is what he said back to me.


yep i got it! im glad you like your phone. if you ever have any questions don't hesitate to call or text. have a good day


hmmm, what's the call on this one?

chickiegirl
06-01-2009, 08:31 PM
I'm totally confused. He was CLEARLY flirting with you at the store and now that crappy reply??

I would just let it go for now, since he didn't ask any questions or anything that would keep the conversation going. But you should be proud you put yourself out there and tested the waters.

At least you don't have to wonder now.

Sorry, hun. Sometimes boys just suck!

I know, right? The only thing I keep thinking about is maybe he was really busy with moving and maybe I should shoot a text over asking how his move went. but IDK.

06-02-2009, 11:40 AM
hmmm
I would leave it on that...
Didn't seem like he was much interested.
If he really wanted he could find 5 minutes to say something nice...
he could had said something a lot nicer in the same time he took to type that boring message.
I don't like to be pushy...
and he has your # now too... so if he wants, he can find you...
But it is really up to you though....

My two cents is that you should just leave it. But this is not on you at all -- he was absolutely, totally, and over-the-top confusing with his initial actions.

At least you'll know some of the stuff you can say/do in the future for when the guy is not so confusing!!

I was totally gonna say what belezura said!

The last time I had a sales guy hit on me like that, it was when I joined a gym several years ago. He was all flirty the WHOLE time he was showing me around, asking when I was going to come back to exercise after I signed up and all that stuff, put his number in my phone and said he was going to call me to get me into the gym. Then he actually started calling to see when I was going to see him and stuff. We wound up dating for like 3 months.

Is he moving in the city or moving out of town?

glutio
06-04-2009, 10:57 AM
Or maybe I should read everything before I reply!
