Tips & Ideas

At the athletic club that I used to belong to I would play tennis on a singles league every Friday night.  I had gotten to know one of the guys there fairly well and we would usually end up playing a match or two together.

I really wasn’t sure if he was interested in me as more than just a friend.  I really wanted to find out but I was really nervous, so I decided to ask him but not face to face.  I just didn’t know if I could handle it if he said no.

I went to the store and bought a pack of tennis balls and wrote “Will you go to dinner with me?”, on each of the tennis balls. The following Friday night I purposely put my bag next to his and slipped the pack of tennis balls inside his bag when he wasn’t paying attention.

The next day I got a phone call from him and he wanted to go that evening, of course I agreed and we have been dating ever since.
