asked a girl from work out on xmas eve.
she said no.
i'm not fucking around on this one. no extended narrative, just...BAM, and you get what you need to know.
that does make it the fourth time i've been knocked back in six months though. that probably deserves some self-obsessed naval gazing but i really can't be bothered....i'm sure i'll break this losing streak next year...fillet o' fish in the sea, etc.
Naval like the boats and stuff...
Anyway, sorry it didn't work out. Christmas eve is kind of desperate though. She probably imagined you sitting at home listening to "Lonely This Christmas" and sighing. New year, clean slate though.
post-rejection she asked me what i was up to that night and i said, (trying to be merry and festive) 'i'll be eating my weight in mince pies and drinking port until i develop gout'
problem is, i think i forgot to say that this would be conducted at a friends house with other people.
she probably thought i was gonna eat/drink myself into a lonely stupor because of the knockback.
*shakes head and winces*
You deserve a nice girlfriend.
P.s. I heard spelling gets you girls.
But, then again, the algebra on my cufflinks got me nothing.
you will break this "losing streak" as you call it. The fact you're even asking girls out is a good thing. It's like murder...the more you do it the easier it gets.
although it has made me think that perhaps maybe i should rethink my style around girls....be a bit more stoic and laid back...try a bit less hard to make them laugh.
basically i just need to sculpt my personality into a george clooney/done draper type, and stop going with the woody allen shtick.
Keep at it.
my arse has literally never looked so snug, and yet nothing.
you're so hard.
it can't be the jeans though. what are we doing wrong michael?
Just no...followed by ''thread''
no cash refunds though i'm afraid...only on a giftcard or another item
Perhaps stash a DVD boxset in her handbag, get her done for being a thieving rapscallion. Best plant a massively reduced one, so she looks like a bit of a unhinged kleptomaniac as well as common thief.
Reading between the lines, I'm fairly sure there'd be a blowie in it for you.
Albeit physically and briefly. But you've gone and ruined it now. Good job crushing the fragmented, last-remaining vestiges of michael_w's confidence, meowington.
PS. I'm just angry because all this cape talk got me excited and I was devastated to discover you didn't mean you wanted super hero gear.
This is new :(
I meant right slag.
I'm going to bed. ALONE!
"Ey' Ooop... oooh Rita, OOOOH RITA THE ROVERS, THE ROVEERRRRRS, THE ROVEEEEEEEEERS... GARETH FOOKIN BARRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY...
... don't know who you are pal, *click*"
don't make me stay here poptimus.
I unexpectedly ended up snogging someone from the office after last day of the year xmas drinks.
she has a bf. i declined going back to hers for this reason.
i feel that was very morally responsible of me.
i'm not sure if this girl was still being a bit flirty even though it looks like she is with someone.
when i asked (over txt), she replied that she would 'love to' but is already sort of seeing someone. but we should still have a drink together at a colleagues b'day thing.
i then said, 'whoops, sorry if i put you in an awkward position'. and she replied that me asking her 'made her night', before inviting me out to meet her for a drink at the pub she was at, to which i declined.
i'm not sure if she was just being really nice and still trying to be pals (saying 'i'd love to but can't' is the perfect thing to say if you really don't want to. and then politely inviting me out for a drink to show there is no hard feelings, BOOMBOOM)....or is being a bit of a flirt and suggesting that she might be open to offers if we got drunk enough.
9.45 on xmas eve when i was settled at my friends house(which is yradition and punishable by death if i don't spend the evening there). i would've needed to get a taxi in the freezing cold. and i was still in my work clothes. that's a chumps errand.
be on standby when the 'sort of' fecks off.
you iz well gorgeous. love ya man. you'll be fine, this time 20 years from now we'll be looking back and laughing hysterically at the rubbish early-20s doledrums.
Keep the flag flying.
