Static

Unfortunately I don't have too much to write about tonight...
Work the past 2 nights was fun, but rather uneventful. We didn't go anywhere after hours last night because there was an employee meeting at 1 today, and I had to work too. Ugh...I got like NO sleep.
I have, however, decided I'm gonna go for Gavin. Alyssa said The Albanian totally reminds her of my ex. ((Sigh)) And I really don't wanna repeat all that.
There's a new bar opening around the corner on Thursday night. We all get passes, and I'm sure there will be more free booze. So I'm probably gonna go to that, since I'm actually OFF!
Melissa has a new boyfriend. Lol...I mean I guess you would say he's her boyfriend. But he seems really nice, so I'm happy for her. Mitchell is officially gone. And still no word from The Model.
((Sigh))
I can't believe my life has gone from so much drama, to absolutely nothing to report in like...a week. It's kinda crazy!
One thing I am pondering though...how do you get a guy that you work with to ask you out??
I mean, it's so easy to slip into that "hang out after work with everybody" routine. But I don't want that. I want dates. And door-opening. And chivalry. Not a lot, just a reasonable amount. I want to really date. So how do I get Gavin to take me out on a date???
I'm completely at a loss as to how to go about this. Especially since I don't work as closely with him. I mean, he's a door guy, and I'm a bartender. So I basically only see him when I'm getting to work, and then afterwards when we're drinking. IF we're drinking.
And that doesn't leave a lot of opportunity for flirting.
So what should I do? Any suggestions?

Is there a close-ish guy friend at work who you could talk to, who could plant the idea of asking you out into Gavin's head?
Or, just ask him out yourself. Go up to him, and say "hey, i was thinking, would you like to go out with me sometime, just the two of us, on a date?" none of that 'this could just be us hanging out or a real date' kinda thing
Or plan to go out w/ everyone from work for drinks and then suddenly everyone has 'plans' and cant make it, leaving the two of you alone... and work on from there.
Or...yah, thats about it Im out of ideas.

One of my favorite Mitch quotes today!

I think anonymous #2 had a good idea - just ask him out, and specify that it's a date. Of course that leaves room for the awkward denial, but in that case it'd be a good thing you don't work right next to him all night. :)

By the way, it was nice to hear a little backstory. Thanks for sharing with us.
