I’ve been flirting with one of my coworkers for nearly two years; We’d run across each other in the breakroom, at several office functions as well as in the elevator at the beginning as well as end of the workday. I recognized early on that Mike is super shy. I knew that getting him to ask me out would take some effort. It took a lot longer than expected. He finally asked me to dinner last July. I was ecstatic. I obtained a modern dress as well as shoes, got my hair colored as well as even tied up a manicure for the occasion, however although the outdoor temperatures were consistently in the high eighties with brutal humidity, I chose a long-sleeved dress. I knew the diner would be blasting the air conditioner, as well as I didn’t want to shiver the whole time. As soon as my associate and I sat down at our table, I knew there was a problem. The diner felt seriously hot. When I asked our server about it, he informed us that the air conditioner had malfunctioned as well as was currently being repaired. He assured us the cooling system would be up as well as running within the next couple of hours. That didn’t help my situation at all. I had sweat running down my face as well as soaking through my dress. I drank way too much water as well as ended up needing to use the bathroom three times. Because of that air conditioner malfunction, our first date was a disaster. It helped that Mike was also wearing long sleeves as well as dripping with sweat profusely. It was a unquestionably short date, and my nice friend and I were both nervous to leave; Fortunately, Mike asked me out again a week later, as well as my associate and I had a good time. We’ve been dating every since.
