So there is this Ask Me Lisboa info desk in the middle of Baixa/Chiado with this super hot Portuguese girl working there. I asked her a couple questions before (directions, where to buy stuff) in the past and I made a mental note to ask her out one day. Today was that day. Suffice it to say it was funny. There was a huge line of tourists waiting to ask her questions as usual. I had to wait in this line while my level of nervousness mounted. When it was my turn I stepped up and smiled.
Me: Podes me ajuda? Estou perdido… (Can you help me? I’m lost) *looks lost*
Angela: Esta? Onde queres ir? (You are? Where do you want to go?)
Me: Não sei…
Angela: *looks perplexed*
Me: Estou perdido em teus olhos (I’m lost in your eyes) *!!!!LOOOLLLZZZ!!!1!*
Her: LOLLLLZZZZZZZ….That’s a good one
Me: Qual é teu nome? (What’s your name?)
Angela: Sou Angela (I’m Angela)
Me: Sou Justino, muito prazer (I’m Justin, a pleasure)
Me: Queres tomar uma cafe comigo? (Do you want to have coffee with me)
Angela: Não, I have a boyfriend and he’s very jealous, we are getting married actually
Me: Onde é seu anel? (Where is your ring?) *She’s not wearing a ring, she shows me her bare left hand*
Angela: I don’t have a ring yet.
Me: You must be getting sick of him then.
Angela: No LOL, there are many pretty Portuguese girls in Lisbon, so, move along *OUCH!*
Me: I know, but your the best one I’ve found so far
Angela: Are you kidding me? LOL
Me: Ok fine, well, how do you get to the Cafe Brasileira?
Angela: *Gives directions*
Me: Ok thanks, what’s the best place to take you for a date?
Angela: Are you serious? LOLZ Are you kidding me?
After that I just gave her my number and web address for Facebook and this blog and said goodbye. Oh well. It was good for a laugh.
