So last night I started playing gigs again and the first one was in a pub... I'm 20 so the band had me go through the side door with my equipment so no one would ask any questions.

Between sets I'd sit at the bar with the band and I order water while they order fireballs (Got nothing against drinking, I just know how I sound playing in my room after a couple beverages) and at the bar the attractive bartender and I were making eyes

Now, being 20 and not so experienced in bar culture, what would you do? I know she's got a job to do and has to stay past closing to clean the place but it seemed like she was interested in me... Or that I was a guitar player... Or something... And I was trying to get packed and out of there quick before someone really gets a good normal look at me so I couldn't really hang around

So, bar attending UG-ers, how do you get the bartender when she's working and not creepily waiting for her in the parking lot like so many horny drunks probably have before

She wasn't making eyes, you were staring at her and so she was looking at you expecting you to order a drink.

And nobody thinks you're special because you play guitar.

Whip it out and let her know what's up. Girls love a guy with confidence.

She also probably thought you were a pussy with your ladyboy water.

The only thing about you that she was interested was a possible tip.

You were being really mysterious and was turning her on. If only you had brought your fedora, she would have donated her moist panties to you.

but really, If a bartender wants to talk to you, they'll talk to you.

There's too many males these days that automatically assume a women want their dick when making eye contact. She looked at you, what of it? Nothing. She was probably trying to get you to actually get something. Ya know, cause she tends bars. Looking at people and getting them alcohol, kind of in her job description.

Order a tap water, down it in one, kneel on the bar and put your dick in the glass.

Picking up an attractive bartender is near to impossible. Way to used to guys oggling them constantly and mistaking good service for legit flirting.

That said, saying "hello" couldn't hurt.

I don't think we've ever had a barmaid where I work who was single. They are never making eyes at you, they're just being nice because they're paid to be nice.

1 - being nice and friendly is part of their job. It's possible she was just being polite.
2 - if it seemed anything more than friendly, it may also have been to get you to buy something. Girls who work in bars/promoting do it a lot.
3 - regardless of how nice you actually are, or if you might have had a chance in another setting, barmaids will be so used to drunk lads trying it on that it's pointless even trying. They won't be interested.
4 - being behind a bar and serving you drinks somehow makes everyone seem more attractive. You were probably just actively looking for signals and interpreting it that way.

Yep.


Female, or gay male bartenders have flirted with me countless times. Their job is to get you to drink, and (depending on the culture where you live) give them a nice tip. You aren't special. They want your money.

I've had sex with 3 bartenders. Don't listen to advice from the pit. None of these dudes ever actually get laid. You get their phone number and take them out on their days off. That simple.

Rule of thumb: If they get tips, don't take any flirty stuff seriously.

That said, you could ask for her number and see what happens. If she says no, just carry on. You asked, she said no, life goes on.
