Oh, you play chess

I was sitting in the bar last Saturday afternoon. I was intently studying a chess position on my pocket chess set. A woman sitting across the bar from me came over and startled me by asking if I was OK. I said, yes, why do you ask? She said you looked so intense I thought something might be wrong. I showed her my pocket chess set and explained I was studying a position in one of my Internet games. We hit it off pretty well after that and we plan to go on a date sometime.

You would not think women would be interested in a guy sitting in a bar and playing with a pocket chess set by himself, but I have struck up many good conversations with attractive women because of it, and I have some good phone numbers arising from it too. You never know when chess might lead to romance.
