    Hmm, recently, I've been thinking about this question. It's tough to me, though. The period that I can reach him is, you know, paying time. icon_sad.gif Five seconds, damn, just like mission impossbile. I can't just walk straightly to him and say "hey, make friend? phone number?". Besides, lots of people are behind me, waiting for paying the check. Well, I had wanted to sneak into the office rest room and ask his phone number! But I found the boss always sits there...WTH. There is a idea that my friends gave me, making the fake run-into chance! However, that doesn't work. His on duty time is exactly the time my class time. I barely have a chat time with him. *Sigh*... Now What, checkmate? icon_sad.gif

    You could try slipping him a note (with your phone number) when he's not looking and then run away?

    Although, if I was in your shoes, if it turns out that he's not attracted to me, or he's not gay, I would be too embarrassed to go to that store again.

    If I was a clerk and someone had asked me for my phone number I'd find it strange and it might even make me feel slightly uncomfortable.

    Thanks for your posting and concerns which my friends gave me. icon_smile.gif
    However, I still the believer of this saying If you want it, then go for it. Being passive ain't get nothing. To me, Everything needs a bold step plus impulsive stupidness! Haha, in fact, the reason I want to make friend with him isnt because I am into him or something, just really wiht the simple reason, making friend! As for your concerns, hmm, it would happen or wouldn't. You are not sure of it. Since those concerns aren't really completely true, then why don't you just forget about them! Don't let those uncertainty stop you to find something new. Well, for your posting, still thanks. icon_smile.gif

    Ps, I know he is not gay!

    Hey, bud, thanks for your posting!
    In fact, I am not surprised to get suggetion like this. And I know posting the thread here would associate with the idea of I am into him more or less, especially posting here. (WEll, I dont know where I could post on icon_razz.gif) But the only simple reason, you know, the most simplest motivation is just to know him more, wanting to make friend with him. Ugh, I think knowing someone doesn't involve realizing his sexuality or the judge of my behavior. The reason I am here is just to know more social skills instead of jumping on the cash desk and then, pulling him to the wall, saying WHAT'S YOUR PHONE NUMBER?
    Still, thank you.

    Bud bro, I get your point. But the problem is I barely have a chat time with him. Football chat? Dont even think about it. You wanna be the shit, standing in the line and asking him "Hey, do you see the game yesterday?" Whoa, that kind of way is not my type. Asking for his phone number is the first step, you know? If I passed this, then I could enter the steps two that you are saying, striking up the possible friendship. icon_neutral.gif

    The way you're obsessing over this guy makes me think you want more than friendship. In which case, you need to give it up unless you want to be hurt and disappointed.

    "accidentally" give him your phone number, it was already in your pocket for some reason, with the money, then if he's gay he might get you did it on purpose, if he's straight, he'll think it was an accident or you can just pretend it was if he asks next time you go there.

    example: if you know what you're getting costs you just have that cash ready in your pocket with the phone number on the bottom of it. hand it to him and leave.

    maybe... hahahaha

    Why would he want to be your friend? Answer that question and maybe you will get a clue on how to reach out to him.

    Gay, straight... if you are interested.. it doesn t matter
    I agree, most important point is to make a move.. so you never have regrets in life.

    Give him the phone number and he might not be brilliant enough to figure things out, so how about a tiny box of chocolates with tiny card and your phone number/name. (gift wrapped of course)
    (you know, one of those boxes of chocolate that can fit in the palm of your hand).
    Then you can give it to him and say, "Happy New Year" after you pay for your groceries, or if you wait a month, "Happy Valentines Day".
    If he never calls you, you don t want to wonder if he got the message, so that's why the box of chocolates is really important.

    Even if he is completely straight, he'll probably be flattered and may end up becoming a good friend.

    OK, why do you want to be his friend? Because he's attractive, cute, sexy? Or because you think that the two of you have a lot in common? If you've only ever had five second interactions with him to buy a pack of gum and get the change back, I doubt that you have enough knowledge about him to determine that you have a lot in common. So, you are most likely attracted to him in a less than platonic way. If he's straight, give it up. If you want a friend, join a club. But handing your phone number to a straight guy cashier at the convenience store is just going to creep him out.

    Best thing I've read in a while... ^ This...


    Sounds rational to me. Please note, if you know he is straight I wouldn't tease with it... You'll ended up expecting something out of nothing and you will be hurt. Are you planning on turning him? Its hard to do that..

    the real question is why do YOU want to be his friend. you've had no conversations with him and the relationship of interest is platonic. i think you need to be honest with yourself of the reasons why this is even a question

    OKay, well, I didn't expected getting these responcses, but, thank you guys. Originally, I just want to let the thread die naturally. After all, I get his phone number, anyway. For the record, I am not like that kind of person who would suddenly be totally into him in just five seconds, of cause, there are many five seconds, you know what I mean! HAHA.

    We work so far so good. He is really fun as I think. Ha. I had to say I got fished again. He's already knew that I have the motivation. So, asking him phone number doesnt freak him out. icon_razz.gif Btw, dont worry about that I would post the thread like "I am into a str8 guy" or somethink like. I still carry the guilty of broking my ex's heart. I axed by my hands. Right now, I just want friendship!

    Oh, right. Bud, I think I have the need to say sorry to you. Ugh, if I say something offended to you. Forgive me! - Chi

    Hand him three business cards.
    The first one says "You have been hotlisted."
    The second says "You have been buddy listed."
    The third has a message that says "You're hot man. Let's do phone sex. What's your phone number?"
