*as in dates
SODS FUCKING LAW
we could have had a pretend date at Secret Garden. Shared a can of coke or something next to a speaker. Nice.
sharing a can of drink?? EURGH!!! MINGING!!!
IT'S OVER. DON'T CALL ME.
take me back?
(then I'll think about it)
OK - it's 'virtually' back on
you're dumped again
petals on the 'speaking rose' are on the floor and there is nothing but a stem in my hand.
*the above 'power' thing is just so true, innit? it's all a power play.
Pretty girls have such hard lives. :(
I know exactly what you mean, it's always the blokes I dont like that ask me out, and the ones I do never do :(
Also rejecting someone is as horrid (well for me anyway) as being rejected yourself. I get the stomach ache and feel like a total bitch and i hate to hurt someones feelings.
So my point is, Rose, I feel your pain.
because I'm not. But it's just ironic sometimes the way things work out.
There is actually someone I really want to ask out and have for some time but I am scared of rejection!!!! Whooo hooo! There you have it!
In fact I'd quite like to know, why should you feel guilty for this?
I have NEVER asked anyone out EVER, im scared of rejection too :(
then no one would ask anyone out!
I was responding to Traynor's comment on my 'lack of embarassment'.
Actually, not sure WHY I should feel embarassed about it? Just trying to generate discussion... get some views.. blah blah.
I haven't asked anyone out in AAAAAAAGES.
The thing is, this guy did ask me out ages ago - to a gig - and I didn't go... as was tied up with friends... so I've kind of blown my chance.. as have casually suggested going out a few times but NO BITE.
What you need to say: "Hey [name], [band] are playing at [venue][time][date]. Meet me there. Buy me [quantity] of [brand of alcohol]. Afterwards we'll go to [house] and I'll [sexual activity]"
Guys love that.
I don't think I could ever do that but perhaps the direct approach might work?
the very visual of that vinegerette bath has concerned me.
But even if I knew that was a fail safe asking out thing. Theres still the matter of plucking up the courage to ACTUALLY say it to them :(
NOT YOU, JAMES!!!! :)
I was talking about someone else! Who asked me out last night!
I never realised before just how hard life is for people who get asked on dates. It's like walking through fucking razor blade fire glass with the six hundred, isn't it? Or is it more like being beaten to death with a bad AIDS dog? Or is it more like when you're in Pret A Manger and they give you a Salmon Rocket Soy Baguette when you clearly asked for a Chilean Veal Butterscotch Wrap?
It's like raaaaiiiaaainn on your wedding day!
my eyes, MY EYES! the googles, they do nothing!
I love you, Parsefone.
Considering the shit that life throws at people, the area of relationships should be one of fun, risk, joy, unexpectedness, surprise, laughter and, occassionally, falling on your arse.
for some time
You think I normally talk rubbish?
please don't take everything i say literally unlike some.
You are right tho.
I generally don't have anything to complain about in my life.
I'll say to them "Look lifes shit enough already without a loser like you asking me out and forcing me to reject you."
Considering the life that people throw at shit, the area of falling on your arse should be one of despair, despair, despair, despair and, occasionally, death.
If you have a heart and you've ever had to reject someone you will know how wretched it feels. It makes me feel physically sick, literally.
I've rejected you five times now, and every time I do it I laugh a bit longer.
You have been in a relatioship for four years and then, one day, you wake up and decide you'd like to dump your partner, just like that, leaving them in a state of despair, homeless, and completely wrecked.
and I've been in that situation too - except it was 6 years. and it wasn't 'just like that'.
except it was three months. and it WAS 'just like that'. dating a tommy cooper impressionist was always going to be a bad idea.
In which case, "live young, die old" etc etc.
except my first girlfriend when I was sixteen. It's much better to just get pissed with people and let the booze work it's magic.
I swear the human race would die out if it wasn't for booze.
LET'S HERE IT FOR BOOZE!
I drink moker
