Out of the blue I got a knock on my apartment door tonight. Expecting to answer the door for a solicttor or building management I was kinda taken back when it was a girl from building holding a Starbucks strawberries and cream frap. She immediatly said "I got you a presnt". I was knda just stunned and justsaid thank you very much. She said your welcome and walked away. I am pretty shy and was stunned at the time and know I kinda didnt react the way I should have by introducing myself before she quickly walked away. I dont know which apartment she lives in or really anything about her but i think she obviously wants to get to know me. How should I procede if I see her in the building again?

He'd still be shy if he was gay.The next time you see her around, have this conversation:You: Hey, thanks again for the coffee.Her: You're welcome.You: I'm _______.Her: I'm _______.You: So can I pay you back for the coffee by buying you a drink tonight?Her: Sure.You: How about we meet [the lobby or whatever of the apartment building] at 8?Her: Sounds good.You: Great, see you then.You: Dear FCP, I got the date, what's next?speedz: When you see her in the lobby, have this conversation...
Speedz has good advice. If you don't like the bar idea, your idea of a coffee date or some such is good. Then figure out what kind of hobbies she has (books, museums, sports, games?) and proceed. Unless you find her to be an annoying boor. Then you can lose her number and move away. After you shag her, of course.

I like this, except shy guys don't do great in nighttime drink/bar scenes. I would repay her in kind with a coffee/daytime date. That, or your dick in a box.
Chix dig it.
