This is my first time seeing her, taking my parrot for a checkup.
I immediately consider asking her out, opting out at the last minute.
I gain an insight into her name, religion, exchange a basic compliment 'You look fairly young for a vet', then ask whether she'd be my regular practice.
She gives an answer that made it seem worthwhile, that being 'Maybe'.
Due to Covid-19, we meet outside.

I didn't feel the first time would be necessary, not being able to shake hands, get closer so next time, I'll choose her as my vet and hope we meet again.

So how old should someone look who is a vet? I'd say that's a bit insulting and focusing on something as superficial as looks and ignoring the brains behind it.

What wasn't necessary the first time? Why would get closer next time? Social distancing aside, it's not fair to invade someone's personal space when they are being professional and trying to do a job.

I agree that telling someone they look “fairly young for a vet” is in fact an insult and not a “basic” compliment (whatever that is)
An answer that makes it seem worthwhile is “maybe” 😹 oh dear.

So is this all just a fantasy you have or are you actually gonna put this into play? Cos you look fairly young for a vert wont end well

does the parrot need a check up or are you just using it to get to the vet?

Your interaction with her sounds like you made a bad first impression. I'd advise against it!

Should have let the parrot do the talking, it's probably got better chat-up lines
