The ultimate elevator pitch. Mar 28, at 5: I pushed the down button and anxiously waited for one of the eight sets of doors to open. I stood in front of the opening doors. A young woman squeezed out of the crowded elevator, and I stepped back to let her off before entering.
She smiled politely and turned to walk toward reception.
Another man in the elevator leaned out to watch her walk away. I took a step forward to enter the elevator, then stopped. Fortune favors the bold. I then turned and walked back toward reception as she asked to speak to one of the lawyers, apparently a distant relative.

At the end I was really bummed because I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. I just wanted to be friends with him. For the next five days I checked that email account, hoping he would contact me. He sent a simple email asking if my computer was working well still. I responded, and from there we began chatting privately. In two weeks he sent me flowers. We met seven weeks later, when we each drove two hours to meet in between our two homes. We've been together ever since.
