Butler can be a lonely place. So what did this guy do? His eyes told it all in a fourth-floor reading room as he sat trying to focus.
The stages of courtship in Butler Library:
Stage 1: Catching his eyes of “first sight”
He looks up, and he watches her walk by, his eyes slowly moving downward toward her legs.
Stage 2: The doubletake
He whips his head back into focus on his laptop, eyes widening.
Stage 3: The allowance of distraction
She walks by again, he watches her walk away, with a heavy, long stare.
Stage 4: Questioning of self
He is wondering why his time for studying is spent trying to catch a lady.
Stage 5: Trying to save your grade
He gets up to go on a walk, either to find her, or to get himself to refocus on schoolwork again.
Stage 6: Internal turmoil
He thinks he needs to get outside more, and by outside, I mean outside of a library.
Stage 7: Putting love above thy studies
He is at the point of gawking at her as she works.
Stage 8: The cycle repeats
He feels distracted. He comes back and sits back down, then stares at another woman.
And that’s what happens when you spend too much time in a library folks.
