Red face VERY nervous about going....

To the pharmacy where as I get my precription meds for my anxiety/ocd...here is why:
I just humilated myself:
See here is what happened.
In 7 + years I have not had a crush on a guy locally nor have I been
in a relationship since then... you cause I am an avoidant. Anyway,
there was this pharmacist (where I get my anxiety and sleepy meds)
that I thought was really cute. He was sweet and kind and had this
real innocent look to him. Anyway, I have been stewing over my
feelings for this man (whom is younger than I). I finally said that
is it I am gonna take the "bull by the horn" and begged my best
friend to call the pharmacy and talk to the pharmacy technicain.
Here is how the conversation went:
"hi there ....", said my roommate
"hey how is it going" replyed the technicain.
"well I know that this is gonna sound odd, but you know my roommate
whom comes to the pharmacy with me right?..."
"yeah", she replied
"well my roommate has this crush on the pharmacist 'john'...."
The pharmacy tech chucked and said..."ummmmmm, he is gonna be MAD
cause he is gonna get married next year...."
my roommate who was perplexed by this replied "mad...ummmm she just
thinks that he is cute, I never heard that responce before.... anyway
please dont tell 'john' this then...."
"Okay, I wont dont worry..."
That was the end of that conversation.... As an avoidant I am
switching pharamacies.... No way I am not gonna go back there for a
very long while..... I am not even gonna go shopping there unless the
pharmacy is closed... I don't want to see this guy.... man I dont want
him mad at me for thinking he is attractive...and what must the staff
think...wow folks I tell ya this is why i am single! I just feel so odd about going to this place now cause of that....

Thanks for listening!

Re: VERY nervous about going....

Why would he be mad if you think he's good looking? I'm a guy and I've never been upset if somebody thinks I'm attractive. And it happens so often.

I know how you feel, though. Been through those awkward situations when you date or like someone at work. Not a happy feeling. Good news is there's plenty of pharmacies around.

Next time, just have your friend call up the guy and never tell who you are.

He's not mad - the guy is kidding. But I can understand why you feel embarrassed. I still don't get what the point was of asking your friend to do this. It's really not a problem - just go to another pharmacy if you're embarrassed, but he's not mad - he's joking.

Re: VERY nervous about going....

Hahaha, sorry to laugh, but this was a pretty funny story. You should just see the humor in it because that is EXACTLY what helps people get over their fears of embarrassment.

Look at it this way, no can ever say anything to you about liking someone...that's what people do. When people poke fun, it's just because they either 1.) think it's cute or 2.) are jealous. Either way, no big deal.

You'll probably continue to avoid that pharmacy and that's ok too, but it certainly wouldn't have been a bad thing if you just talked the pharmacist on your own without a middle man. It's always better to face these kinds of things directly and tell as few people as possible about it.
