what badge is this?
for the shy cardigan wearing types (this sounds patronising but I include myself in this category), so that when you see someone interesting wearing the same badge, you'll know that it's ok to talk to them, and then you'll live happily ever after.
i could probably be described as a 'shy, cardigan-wearing type' too...maybe i should get one of these badges. it would make everything a lot easier.
in a really sad way...
i don't have a badge machine, sadly :(
and a handful of casual relationships!
that's all, bye!
Should I tell her I like her?
does he blow hot and cold all the time?
hence why he doesn't stick to either hot or cold.
that does NOT sound positive.
to give more specific/better advice.
casually for a drink/whatever
tell each other we are interested
then nothing happens
cycle happens a couple of time
is this man stupid and/or insane!?
or playing me?? i know for a fact he isnt seeing/trying it on with other girls
he is shy....
but getting mixed messages, as you are. Doesn't always have to be the male who makes the move... agony aunt at your service, thank you very much
i could make the move but argh
ive tried and he's responded then we fall apart again
I DONT LIKE MEN MUCH
because it has happened to other people I know as well. He probably just needs a good kick behind. It is scary, but from what you've said you don't really have much to lose.
a good kick from behind,
i dont want to give him some kind of ultimatum though?
boys are too shy for their own good sometimes.
you have nothing to lose.
I'm sure you do. Show off your skills (that is not some lame joke where "skills" means "breasts") and they will no doubt be massively impressed.
classic insecurity issues there obviously. You could "wait and see what happens" or you could take the piss out of them more than they take the piss out of you so you're sure that they're more insecure and maybe they will bring it up so you don't have to. Or you could bring it up yourself, but be sure to do it in a half joking manner to maintain the balance of the whole relationship/whatever it is.
then it would sound unlikely for to fall for you, or anyone for that matter. If you belive that she does feel the same way however, the only thing you can really do is to take a chance and go for it.
the worst thing that can happen is she says she doesn't feel the same, but at least then you'll know, instead of falling head over heels for her and always thinking "what if...?"
Good luck! :)
do long distance relationships ever work? i may be getting into one (london - me, brighton - her). not that long a distance but quite far away (not in london) and yeah, will it work??
is not that far so it COULD work, but I'm quite cynical and don't really believe in them in the long run. But you know, people are different, some couples want to be together ALL THE TIME, while others like to keep their personal space and stuff.
i don't even know where brighton is and this whole thing is very confusing as we've known each other a long time and been friends for a while but just started liking each other it seems. plus she's way out of my league, so i'm worried. i'm not sure it can work but i'll give it a go! thanks :D
i hope it does too! i've finally met a girl who likes okkervil river!!!
edinburgh - germany? i'm guessing not, hmmmm.
it MIGHT work, you do never know, but like I said I am quite cynical about the distance thing.
and for how long?
however you lose points for usage of "fella".
only 60-90 minutes by train!
and look at it this way - she gets weekends in THE BIG CITY and you get weekends AT THE SEASIDE! everyone wins.
i don't think you met her on saturday but she was standing next to me.
the seaside sounds fun!!
i was wondering if it was her or not :)
People from Brighton.
but it was a joke, no need.
there's this person that keeps coming onto me and they're really really hot: i.e normally totally out of my league and probably a miracle considering people for me are pretty few and far between. Should I get off with them despite only knowing them through aqcuaintances and not fancying them THAT much?
YES, you should. If you don't really fancy them that much then there's nothing to worry about. If you do fany them then you should probably wait a shot while before making the move, but not TOO long or they might get bored. Best of luck.
I only see them at house parties etc and it wouldnt really be my ideal environment, because i'm pretty bored by all that stuff, but thanks! I probably will! wooh!
if you have someone really hot to get of with.
I thought i'd got myself figured out for a second there.
don't ruin it.
my name's Tom and I'd rather hang out on internet forums and muse about vague badge-making plans than actually go out and attempt to have a real relationship, no matter how casual- should I just kill myself now?
therefore destroying your memory, so that if you get rejected you forget within 30 seconds, and become FEARLESS
or you could actually make the badges. OR you could go out and socialise and meet some hot chicks. And stuff.
you could like recommend a site where I could buy pills to make me more manly and go-getting and stuff?
SERIOUSLY just go out and try talking to girls. They don't bite! Well, some of em do, which is a bonus. As long as they don't draw blood, cos that can hurt and if it's in an obviously place people at work will look at you like you're some sort of weirdo. Though nails are good. So yeah... what was I saying.... DON'T DO DRUGS KIDS
Stick with your cardigan wearing ways. Seriously.
plus, its really really not about being unable to talk to girls- I can talk to girls like a genius.
BUT is it all in a FRIENDLY way or do you manage to work your charms with them...?
I think we all know the answer to that question, don't we?
if you want said hot chicks to see what a stud you are and to fall for you like they should, then that's obviously where you need to start.
doesn't really sound like 'me'. Thanks though.
sorry I was unsure whether you were joking, whether you were being serious, or whether TheSoundOfBastards had hacked your account.
that was perfectly good advice!
Like I said, stick with your cardigan wearing ways (that sounds so lame, sorry) and I'm sure it will all work out <3
