Well it sounds like he's available to you at a certain level, which you don't seem upset about so that's good (?) Sometimes (as I've yelled at JimmyB) it's alright to go slow getting to know people Smile

Oh - Laurence, I took your advice too. Some guys shouted at me because I had my Social Distortion shirt on and so I smiled and batted my eyelashes in return! They smiled back. Then kept walking. It's ok though cus they were not attractive to me at all. But I tried!

Yep. I'm not upset about it at all ever since I had a talk with someone who I consider to be very wise. She told me that, hey, I'm only 20. I'm not looking to get married at all. Why rush into things?

I'd rather take things slow and get to know this guy before jumping straight into a relationship. Who knows if we actually still want to see each other after we get to know each other anyway? And actually taking things slow makes it easier for me -- I'm all over the grid because of school and journalism. It's nice that there's something that's not as fast-paced and it's kind of constant. At least knowing that there is something there and I can look forward to it.

I think on some level we all want to know RIGHT NOW does this person like me or not? But it's just not how things work Sad

That Trainwreck guy I've posted about- I knew him casually for a few years (enough that I thought I knew his personality pretty good) before I actually spent one on one time with him. When I was finally alone with him, I found out he was really nothing like I thought he was and it was a major disappointment. So you really should get to know someone pretty well before committing to them!

Sounds like you're taking it easy, in which case, kudos! It's less nervewracking this way!

I think I found out a reason why no one wants to go on a date with me. Apparently I am too boring to be wanted.

i think you're more needy and dramatic than boring. they're the shortcomings you have that'd turn a girl off more, so i'd work on them.

I can see why they would think that. You need to go do something exciting so you have stories to tell. Like the time I broke my collar bone trying to make a jump while mountain biking. It was completely moronic but people will be interested in me talking about it because it's exciting.

Jimmy, it's amazing to me how you can't even hide your awkwardness while talking on the internet.

What exactly is it that you want us all to say to a post like this? Just wondering. Do you want us to prove you wrong? Agree with you? What?

You dont even have to be funny, I know plenty of guys that get loads of girls simply by being quiet and listening and understanding. Its clear your not funny or a fireball of sunshine, so dont try doing that. Try conntecting

bad idea. i think we should steer jimmy clear of emotional stuff. otherwise he'll think he's in a movie and be like one of those characters who are always in the rain outside a girls door saying "no-one understands you like i do!". then he'll have no substance and a cold. and girls don't like colds.

Well, yes and no. I've suspected something was off but this wasn't really what I had in mind.

so...you guys keep in touch, then? it sounds like she is interested in getting back together with you, and you don't really know how you feel?

Yep, we talk every now and then.

Yeah exactly, I've invested a lot of time in trying to get over her so I'm not sure how to react, you know?
