Do I have a sign on my head...

For the weirdest dude in the bar to hit on me?
So it is New Years Eve and I am out with J and some of her co-workers (I will post again about the rest of the night but this one deserves his own post... you'll see why, keep reading!) at a bar in Canton, it is early and the first of many bars. Anyway, I excuse myself to have a cigarette at the bar, as not to bother the others. Let me stop here and explain that I am only smoking when I am out drinking and MD had passed a no smoking in public places law effective yesterday. So, looks like the days of my social smoking are over (maybe resolution #!? Keep your fingers crossed).
Back to the story... That is when "Steve" (aka-weird forward dude) comes into the picture. He was already sitting there but he turns to me and asked if my friends kicked me out and I said no, but I didn't want to bother them.
Then he pops out with, "I hope you don't mind me saying so but you are gorgeous."
"Thank you"
"So, where is your football player boyfriend?"
"I don't have one"
"Well you look like you should. How can someone like you be single, you must intimidate all them men."
"No, but thanks. I am just coming out of a marriage and just moved back to the area."
"Wow, you don't look old enough to have been married. You only look about 23. You look like you just graduated from high school. How old are you?"
"Definatly not that young, I'm 31."
Then he asked about my job and he is a business broker and he has big plans for 2008. Big ideas and big plans! Oh yea, he also just of a long relationship in the end of '06 and is ready to move on now. He really reminded me of a pro-speed dater.
Anyway, he then comes out with, "You really are beautiful, I would like to date you, I hope you don't mind, I am a forward person. You seem very well spoken and usually I only attract bar floozies, I am much better than that I don't know what it is about me."
He went on for a bit about himself then asked for my number. Then I did it, I just can't lie or be mean but I gave him my number (I hope he miss typed it!) WHY DID I DO THAT? Maybe it was the tequila of the magic of New Years but whatever it was, I let my guard down and gave out digits!
Well, he said he would call on Wednesday (today) and asked if I like sushi... he knows a great place. And we would see where this goes then kissed my hand.
Thank God that J swooped in to save me towards the end but the damage was already done. We left to venture on to the next bar and they laughed their asses off at this latest winner! Please pray that he doesn't call (but if he does... I will so let you know!)
