The Note (3 of 8)

This morning at 7.30am I dropped the following note through my hairdresser's letterbox:

Dear Emma,

Thanks for cutting my hair the other day - was fun.

After closer inspection I can tell you your work was very satisfactory. However, there are one or two minor points I'd like to discuss - perhaps over a drink?

Here's my number if you'd like to sort something out - 0789 160 ****.

Couldn't hurt. You can always say you tried. =)

Fantastic PS. Great strategy. I'm sure she won't pin it up on the office noticeboard for her colleagues to laugh at.

jiveleigh said...

Very cute. A note like that would definitely catch my interest!

otherworldlyone said...

It would work for me.

Good note. Hope it works!

Well, starting out by lying to her is never a good way to go. At least you didn't give her this blog url.

Toni said...

Are you mad! Why not just send her a packet containing photos of her entering and leaving work and home for the last 2 months with a lock of her hair and a note written in your blood saying "you want to be together - forever".

No, no, no, no, no.

Mate, this will never work. Never expect a lass to make the call. It just won't happen.

The situation is not irretrievable though. Here's what you do. Tomorrow you go back to the hairdressers, stick your head round the door. Ask her for a quiet word when she's free. She'll say "sure."
When she's free she'll come over and THEN you ask her out for a drink.

It's so simple, yet people insist on trying to make it so complicated. It's dating, not brain surgery.

Best of luck

Michael

good Fish you took Action! first step :) now... plan b. if she doesn't call.. "Show up" at her day care "in person" and..ask her out! (gotta remember women don't like to be the agressor.. ie: make initial contact.. however, thats not always true though :)
GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND!

P.S. she ALREADY knows your "into" her... she's a woman!

TheUnwashedMass said...

Reckon you should stride into the hairdresser's, knock the mullet-geezer out in one punch, sweep her off her feet and off to some exotic location for a night of romance and passion.

That might just be a slightly glorified violent kidnapping, though. It's a tightrope.

Ani said...

All my fingers and toes are crossed for you!

Personally i would be quite happy if a handsome young man posted me a note. Last time that happened was in year 5 at school... haha!

The "weirdo" part was a nice touch.

Hope it works...

Wynn said...

I LOVE notes. I've given like three people notes in their mailboxes. So fun. And a little weird but that goes along well with my personality :D

Little Sophie said...

That's just adorable.
You've got the right mix of charm and wierdness there ;)
She'll be crazy not to go out with you, I've got my fingers crossed for you.

Hunter said...

Good job. Just avoid any pre-date curry. ;)

birdykins said...

No no no. You want HER to call you? That is such a coward's way out. Even if she likes you (which seemed promising) I will be VERY surprised if she calls you.

Scarlet said...

ps I'm not a weirdo... Loves it xx

Sparkless said...

Awesome note. I hope she calls, she'd be crazy not to.

RenRexx said...

i would have been more interested to know what the "points" were. or at least one to know what i was getting into, so that i could be curious to find out what the other one was......


maybe she'll call you to find out what the points are then, and negate the whole point of the date. watch out for that trap!

Rapunzel said...

All good until your p.s......

Everyone knows that is the actual weirdos that don't think they are weirdos!

p.s I hope you put the rest of your phone number in the note or it could be too much of a challenge...

p.p.s I'm not a weirdo by the way.

JennyMac said...

I hope the note works some magic for you.

Toni's comment made me laugh out loud. And perhaps next time you need not add a disclaimer that you are not a weirdo.

Looking forward to an update.

Beautiful but Grumpy said...

hmm, your note is so elegant. You really are trying your best! Great. Good luck, I hope she is worth it! x

Kate said...

I am rooting for you Fishy although we all know that you are in fact a weirdo!

Brave lad!!! If it were me, I would bite!

Good luck!

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Generally cute and endearing, though I agree that a woman doesn't like being told to make the phone call IF she wants to. Plus, not flattering to call her work "satisfactory."
Good luck, though. Hope she reciprocates.

That's one way to go, are you going to be driven insane waiting for an answer? Or have you given yourself a deadline?

PS - Loving Toni's comment:
"Are you mad! Why not just send her a packet containing photos of her entering and leaving work and home for the last 2 months with a lock of her hair and a note written in your blood saying "you want to be together - forever"."

RobGetaway said...

You, my friend are a genius.

Bamberio said...

Cop out!

Just ask her out face to face. That way if she never calls you, you won't be left wondering if she actually received your love note or if it was swept up with a pile of beard trimmings by mullet boy.

Also, this is relying on her to make the move and call you. Be a man and ask her out properly!

Tuesday Kid said...

If this works I'm stealing it. I just discovered your blog. I feel you can teach me much.

Skye Blue said...

hmmm...that P.S. was kind of creepy.

I think you're going to have to find a new hairdresser.

Dater at Large said...

I love the note! I do think it could without the self-abasing PS, though. Be confident! (girls like that)

Lainey. said...

Those who have suggested you need to make the first move are missing the point- you did. The note was the first move.

I would be cock-a-hoop to get a note like that but I wouldn't call, I would text.

Good luck! You've got me on tenterhooks.

Smart move (but a bit of a cop out. Can't wait to find out what happens!

Zach Noble said...

you're crazy man. Good luck. Cant wait to see how this turns out.

You Make My Date said...

Haha I love the disclaimer at the end. Because you know, if you WERE a weirdo trying to secretly lure her out to chop her up, you'd totally be upfront about it... :P
