Your question was: Does anyone know what song was used in the match.com commercial in January?.
Make small talk with him and do some subtle flirting. basically just drop little hints to encourage him. if he still doesn't ask you out he is either a) way too dense b) doesn't have the balls to ask you out or c) isn't interested (yes, I know he smiles at u, but as Austen says, "We must not be so ready to fancy ourselves intentionally injured. We must not expect a lively young man to be always so guarded and circumspect. It is very often nothing but our own vanity that deceives us. Women fancy admiration means more than it does.").
If it's one of any of those points, it will attest to his lameness and you shouldnt want to go out with him anyway. ..
First of all, get your mother out of the picture. You were both in the store...so there is no reason for your mother to intervene..
You can approach him in a funny kind of way about how your mother handled things and you can even open up conversation in a very adult-like way and say something like "sorry if my mom put you on the spot, but if you ever did want to call me and go out I'd like to." And then just leave it at that...and see if he responds. It takes courage to do that but it is much better to be upfront than play the coy, subtle games that usually end up confusing people. .
You need to find out if he can date using Match.com a customer of the store. Some stores/companies have strict personnel policies..
I was once asked out by a customer of mine many years ago (I was in sales) and I told him that I couldnt date using Match.com customers. He said "that's okay then I wont be a customer anymore". I told him "you cant do that to me. I need your revenue." hehe He ended up disappearing from my area (and owing money to people), so it was good that we never went out...
First of all don't change who you are or where you shop for any guy. You have responbilities and shopping for yourself and family is required. So who cares what he thinks.
Women/girls have a tendency to analyze everything about anything.
It couldn't be any clearer that your interested when he received your phone number.
It couldn't be any clearer that is his not interested when he didn't call.
Now let me say this.
He may not be interested in dating (online dating with Match.com) you but he's interested in you as a person. Maybe he's not ready for a serious relationship (thru Match.com) and he sees you as the kinda girl that he would want a relationship (thru Match.com) with. This is what I tell all my friends. Even if he is not asking you out now, be nice and polite and friendly. B/c maybe some day when he is ready to call for a date, he will remember how nice you were.
I know there have been times when a guy asked me out and the timing was all wrong. I would politely say no and try to explain why. He would get his feelings hurt and then would ignore me or whatever.
One time I had just gotten divorced a month before. I was in no way ready to even date. This guy asked me out and I said "I just got divorced and I'm not ready to date." He got all mad and pouty and wasn't very nice to me after that. About 1 1/2 years later, when my life returned to normal, I was ready to date. I would have gone out with him but b/c his feelings were hurt and because he behaved badly, he became unattractive to me. If he'd just been understanding and friendly I would of come around in time.
So just don't assume it's something wrong with you or b/c your a single mother. Just be understanding and friendly. You never know what is around the corner but when you look back you at least want to leave a trail of people remembering you in a good way.
What I'm going to tell you may not be the answer that you're looking for, but I feel as though it could be beneficial to know..
What you're going through is a 'symptom' of what's REALLY going on in your life. The fact that you FEEL so shy, is just a symptom of a deeper underlying issue. Understanding WHY you are so shy and learning how to counter-act it, is the only way that you will ever be able handle another situation like this. People can give you a ton of things to DO, but unless you are comfortable enough to DO these things, I don't believe their advice will be taken by you. I hope I'm wrong, too..
(Side note: I would love to tell you some ways to go about this, but I've learned to not offer advice unless it has been directly asked for. So if you are curious to know what I mean, feel free to ask.).
It's like me telling a guy that wants to be good with women, by telling him to 'Be Yourself'. It's NOT good advice. This is sort of how I see the advice these kind people have given you. It sounds GREAT, but if you have NO idea how to APPLY it, then it's useless. Does this make sense?.
I'm sure it DID NOT boost your confidence by having your mom give him your #. I'm sure she meant well, but it's hard to believe this made you FEEL GOOD about yourself. Is she always like this?.
You can say hi, how are you and make a comment that things must be crazed with all the last minute shoppers. Just be casual and don't expect anything to come from it - if something does, great. If not, move on. Best of luck..
