being a young teenager on the internet is so hard. Every other sentence starts with 'no offence, but...'
from someone who's as old as I was when I got my first kiss.
he was giving his opinion.
You're ruining the whole board.
locked and loaded
You were seven?
but her first kiss was in 2002. So if yours was two years before that, it would have been 2000. And as you were born in 1993...
I'm not taking advice on how to make jokes from a 15-year-old.
I have just hung out with girls and gone places until something happend, is that dating?
I'm not really sure what counts and what doesn't. What I do know is that the ones I've been on have not been all that pleasant.
I hung out with a girl quite a bit one summer and I think she thought we were 'dating' I had no idea until she txt me one day saying I don't want to see you anymore, I thought we were just friends hangin out hehe
That sounds horrible. I think I might have gone on a date or two with a "friend", and spent the entire time making a fool of myself. We had been "friends" for a while before that though, so he was probably used to it.
The only time I had thought... oooo I think I'm on a date, was when I was already going out with someone and taking them for dinner or out, somat like that. But I don't know if that counts if you are in a relatinship.
God knows, I just try go with the flow and see what happens.
i found a nice person.
if you think they're nice by the time you've agreed (or not agreed) to go on a date with them, though.
i just realised that i've not really dated either. i got with my current girlfriend through being a badass and enjoying the music of animal collective. we were friends from school. maybe go out with one of your friends :)
Maybe if I were more of a badass like you it would all work out better. I'll work on it, I promise.
get a chopper :)
I'm on it.
You have to wave a shotgun around and drop a lot of acid though.
Easy Rider was a cool film man. You totally debunked the idea of mainstream cinema and brought the counterculture kicking and screaming onto our screens.
What's your secret?
sure you come across in a positive light.
But other times it hasn't. Like the time I got so drunk I spilt my drink across his lap.
It would be incredible if the whole pub/ restaurant did that. And the camera cuts to a vicious old lady waving her stick and charging, down to a small innocent looking boy....And then there's a collective gasp and sigh as Helene starts to slurp all over his crotch and his eyes roll back.
Despite not ever getting close to his genitals at all.
Oh dear god, the memories.
I guess its just fun.
Unless you're ridiculously in to the person, then it's a bit scary. But also fun. And exciting.
I can imagine it being horrifying though.
It's pretty fun. I'm definitely all about the chase, though.
Is it ok if I sing Evenflow as I do though?
Unless it's a date with me, obviously.
but thinking back, I'd say the time I was with someone and we went out for a meal was possibly a date. Well, she didn't actually eat or drink anything except a few of my chips and looked like she was going to pass out due to stomach pains but that sort of counts as a date doesn't it?
what a laugh
with all your man threads
but a girl's gotta eat
People aren't really themselves and you know yourself that you're putting up a bit of a front.
If there was some magical way with which you could get to know someone better without going through the whole horrible rigamarole of dating then i'd love to hear about it, but until that wonderful day then i'm afraid we all going to have to suck it up and take the rough with the smooth.
Like when you meet up with someone you dont know very well with romantic intentions? I think they're pretty lame. Its just small talk and anticipation, hoping that you'll find some niche interest that you both share and can turn into a proper conversation. Unless you know the black arts of seduction, or are stupidly good looking or charming that is.
And because I don't really know where to find nice people, it's normally someone I've already drunkenly fooled around with, which makes it even more awkward. Or so I imagine.
Although different people's interpretations of what constitutes a date vary from person to person I'm sure. I've always had some ludicrous round-about route of getting a girlfriend, which is why I find them hard to come by because I've never ended up going down any of the usual channels, they've always been ridiculous.
That said, I live in Cardiff, what are you doing tomorrow?
Well, I'm away for the summer.
I know this is only going to sound like a cheap pick-up line or something now, but erm... Where in Cardiff do you live?
Roath, just round the corner from student favourite "Koko Gorilaz"
I've only lived there since September.
Seghennydd Court, where I lived in my first year. I live near the railway tracks there, it's like ten minutes from the union, not that I'm a student anymore or anything
Well, I am a student, there's nothing wrong with that :(
but I figured you were, so I was trying to remember where I knew when I was, but I don't really go anywhere around the main campus since I left, I just happen to live in the thick of it.
what course did you do then?
Just for the record.
only people who have completely lost their minds would consider that
Although I tell people I did 'Linguistics' which is essentially what it was, and I like to sound cleverer than I actually am. I basically lived in the humanities building for three years, hence why I don't venture over that way, except to go to Lidl
But moving away from that area now so don't have to bother with it much more. Win.
but very little else
of an extended one-on-one encounter with basically a stranger. I dont have the social skills to cope really, I mean I can do small talk, but it never progresses to anything... Maybe I'm just really boring. Anyone I've stopped going on these kinda dates. In future I'm gonna do more social/friend type things like bowling/cinema and make sure that other friends from both parties are there, so there's no pressure to be 'appealing'.
'Like when you meet up with someone you dont know very well with romantic intentions?'
I think I have done that once then, the second time doesn't count as a date cos we just got dirty hehe
Then she moved away...
I think the date went well...
First dates always go 'OK' for me... But 'OK' doesn't usually merit a second date.
we just met for drinks the first time and got along and kept talkin after that on MSN some times. Then I think we flirted a lil by txt a little, and I remembered she liked motorbikes, and there happened to be a motorbike rally goin on near my place that night. So I asked her over to go and sneek into that and go to some pubs, but we ended up in bed...
via email and that now she lives down south some place.
you found a niche common interest and exploited it! Good work!
about motor bikes :S
hope you're alright there
unless it's really awkward. or like terrible things happen
This one was only alright cause I didn't fancy the guy.
Cause then I get all nervous and don't know what to say to them and feel like I have to be amazing and impress them and look super hot all at the same time. If it's someone that I don't really fancy that much, I can pretend they're just someone I know, and relax. I also downed a pint before he got there, which helped.
I think I've been on one good date in my life.
I can think of few things I'd rather do less.
Why do people do these things? I despair. Truly. Awful.
I'd never have guessed ;)
if you're anything like me you only really know you want to spend time with someone when you know them, and by the time you know them and you're friends, they see you as just a friend. So your options are compromise your integrity or be alone.
Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart are a lesson to us all.
(I was very polite and hugged him twice though)
this thread's too big to see if you've already answered that
it was last night. i was very nervous because i couldn't remember what he looked like, and i was afraid maybe i'd actually fancy him, but i didn't, so it was ok. it's not the worst i've been on, but you know, it got me thinking........
you were worried you might actually fancy him? WHY? and you were relieved when you didn't?
actually, maybe it's just your attitude to dating. you sound like you're going in with an overly negative attitude, sure, it might boost your emo points, but you'll only end up feeling like a ninny
the thing is, i don't know how these things work, and i have bare minimum of experience with these things, and everyone else has got loads, so i get really nervous and don't know what's expected from me and i just start focussing on how awkward it's bound to be and the silences and stuff. and yeah, i don't really want to LIKE anyone, a bit of flirting or drunkenly making out is ok, but that's as far as i'm going to stretch right now.
well, if you don't want to go on dates with people, don't go on dates, don't say it's just shit, just say "it's not for me at that point in my life"
honestly, you people with your unecessarily declarative statements
about how we're all losers. you have now ruined it. congratulations.
Relationships not so much though.
but I can imagine.
Dating:Both people make an effort to look nice and be polite, nice bit of flirting and they only know the cool stuff about you.
Relationships:Everyone gets fat and boring. It gets really comfortable so you wonder around looking like a mess until one person realises that they don't like the person anymore.
One person tries too hard and puts the other one off. One person doesn't understand that the other one has a different take on how relationships work.
One person can't just exist and sit and be with someone and not have to do anything.
I think I'm going to go to bed before I post something embarassing, angsty and stupid.
luckily i never do that
Its just embarrassing to watch when that happens.
But if you go open minded and that, no pressure, it's really good fun.
I really like just doing nice things with nice boys. Little cheeky hand hold here and there. Super time!
you've made my eyes bleed
I dont know you, but I think I love you.
