You cross paths with a complete stranger in a formal situation, who makes a big impression on you. Their smart, attractive dress and grooming, their polite manners and their appealing smile – they seem very attractive to you. The whole time you are conversing, they seem to be very warm and friendly towards you, but in no way inappropriate.

At the end of the conversation, they give you their business card with a phone number and email address, so that you can contact them again if you need their business services. But you can’t stop thinking about that gorgeous smile and how they made you feel.


(You may have to use your imagination again! Let’s pretend we have passed the days of social distancing.)


What is THE CARAMEL CRUNCH? Well, it’s all about decisions. When it comes to THE CRUNCH what would you do?

One of the definitions of the word CRUNCH is:

a crucial point or situation

 – generally involving a decision with weighty consequences

  • Your response can be a quickie. Please feel free to send a comment to say what you would do, and if you have time or are inclined, please feel free to explain your decision.
  • If you would like to create a post with a longer explanation of your decision, please pingback to THE CARAMEL CRUNCH post. (Or copy and paste a link to your post in the comments section – please feel free.)

If you know anything about CRUSHED CARAMEL, you will probably realize I am a gentle soul, so my questions are not supposed to be terrifying! What I am hoping for really is to see a variety of responses. Afterall, it’s pretty obvious that WordPress bloggers are from a huge variety of backgrounds and cultures. It would be fascinating to learn more about how we as individuals make decisions.

Some of the questions I am going to ask are questions I have discussed with friends when we have been having coffee or dinner. I often find there is no clear right or wrong. It can be so much a matter of our individual experiences and outlook. I find it fascinating how very different some of us are when it comes to decision making.

We all have different outlooks, and may make different decisions. I am really looking forward to learning WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

One Way Street, Decisions, Opportunity

  1. Haha nothing! I wouldn’t feel confident enough to contact them again. In fact, I would suspect that their interest was only to sell me something, and if I did contact them, they would launch into a sales pitch of some kind and I would feel humiliated.

    1. Sooooo, there was this gorgeous guy who turned up at my landlord’s house when they were on holiday. He was so lovely and friendly. He told me all about himself, (single, South African, lives and works nearby) and we chatted away while he assessed the work that needed doing so he could provide a quote.

      I thought to myself afterwards…if it wasn’t for Jack (and Goldfinch), would I have had the nerve to contact him again to say I would love to meet up for a coffee.

      I don’t know, but the fact that I still remember him tells me that I would have been tempted to for a long time, until one of my friends finally talked me into it!

  2. Me, nothing. If a first impression is good, it doesn’t really means that they are that genuine or that good. Maybe another chance meeting can make up my mind.

    1. It is very true. But nowadays, it is great to come across someone who catches your eye from Day One. Many people take a lot warming to before you find the wonderful hidden below the rough 🙂

      1. 🙂 I don’t think I’m that brave – I’d be pretty bloody nervous the whole time and if he said No, I’d be a little despondent for a while.


  3. Assuming I was still single, I’d find a reason to contact him even if it was bogus. If he started pitching me on what he was selling, I’d turn it around on him and I guarantee I’d sell him whatever I was selling. I used to do that when I had my sign company. You come solicit me and you will be the one paying for my products. Then if there was a spark then so be it. I love the hypothetical! 😊🥰
