As we say some people have that eye catching thing in them. Some people are so attractive, that it’s really difficult to take your eyes off them. Saw such a guy few days back but thought of writing about him today. He had that perfect smile and the flirtatious eyes. He wasn’t that tall but he had the confident that he can ask any girl out and they won’t say no.
Saw this guy in the bank and he just kept talking to everyone who was near to him in the cash queue. Initially I thought I wish I had to deposit some cash, so that I could talk to him, but then laughed back at my own thought and concentrated on the passbook queue that I was in.
Like any normal day, Bank of India’s printer wasn’t working. I kept standing and many people from the queue started leaving. I called up my mom asking is it okay if I don’t update the passbook today, as it was going to take a lifetime? My mom said its okay with her and I just thought of leaving the queue and going back home but just then came a voice from behind, “hi!” and I turned back to confirm is that hi For me? And realized that yes it was so for me.
I smiled back and said hi with the exact enthusiasm as his. I was just thinking as to what his age was and he just said it aloud, “and people say 25 year old guys are lazy… look at me I am still in BOI waiting for the work to be done.”
For a moment I felt, “is he reading my mind?” luckily he didn’t say anything but rather asked me, “have I seen you somewhere?” I thought to myself about all the flirtatious one liner that guys use these days. I looked back at him and said, “I don’t think so.” He made a sad face and then said, “I wonder how I didn’t notice you till date.” I was laughing on his sense of humor or filmy nature whatever you call it, but he was fun.
I noticed that he was talking to some aunty who was standing behind him. Trust me he was a charmer. He then asked me, “Ashmita, where do you stay?” rather than replying him, I was confused as to how does he know my name? I asked him, “how do you know my name?” he laughed and I was knocked out again. He then said in that charmer way, “Baby, I am a literate person and I can read the passbook that you are holding.” He gave me a smile and I looked at him like a dumb person and said, “Ahh okay!” he immediately said, “so? Where do you stay?” and I looked at him and said, “Nearby…”
He couldn’t stop laughing so loudly that people around us were also laughing on his laughter and then he said, “smart. I really like smart girls like you.” I tried to avoid him, because he was kind of getting too personal. But as he was a charmer, I couldn’t be spared from his charm. He followed me till the gate of the bank and asked me out. Yes he did!
Exactly just like you, even I was shocked to death! Okay let me not exaggerate that too much but yes I was shocked when he said, “I don’t look that bad and I am from a good south Indian family, with my mom working for SBI and dad for Mantralaya. Though my parents are in the government services, I am not. But working as a Training manager in a BPO isn’t that bad is it?” I nodded my head agreeing to what he said. He then continued, “so with a summary about myself, I would like to take you out for coffee. It’s not a meeting of friends, but would like to take you out on a date. Say yes!” I smiled and asked him, “what’s your name?” and he laughed back and said, “how dumb of me! My name is Ashwin” I was dumbstruck for a moment, for the reason well known to Shrabani and then I told him, “don’t you think you are too fast?” he said, “The world is going to end baby.” And I smiled and told him ok… will go out for coffee with him. He smiled and then said, “chalo then.” I just told him, “on Monday” and started to walk. He then gave me his number and asked me to call him on Monday when I reach the café coffee day. I was blank, took his number and left…
I know how risky it is to meet some guy just randomly but as I said he was too cute to ignore. And many things about him couldn’t be ignored by me. Obviously the dialogues used here are not the exact same things but yeah similar to these. he was indeed a cute and a charming guy. And someone is going on a date in the evening. Obviously, I will think twice before calling him but yeah would give it a thought.
What made me write this blog-post? Nothing! Wanted to write something before I go to sleep for the day, so here it is!!! a small love story, not of Maya’s but mine this time!!! Let’s take this risk.
Worst part about the entire thing: Why will a guy just ask you out randomly?
Best part about the entire thing: He didn’t ask you out for some movie or secluded place but rather a nice cafe with people around and nearby to your place.
have been on a blind date earlier, so this couldn’t be worse? i hope. 😉

Good luck on your date….
It is Monday morning here, which means it is Monday evening in India. Did you call him and meet him for coffee? Coffee is pretty neutral. You can always have a cup even if he stands you up!
i will call him up in an hour… excited and nervous together!!!
the guy must have been a real charmer. I have thought of doing likewise many times but i can’t just stand the humiliation of a girl turning me down. i love my ego and i am not so sure if i am so charming.
welll yeah he is a charmer….. dnt worry m sure u can try the trick he tried someday!!!
good luck on ur date.
hm, interesting post sis, good luck! wishing you for the best…
