whats the most outlandish / retarded thing YOU'VE done recently?
I've not done anything lately. I'm feeling incredibly crappy.
Well now, I've actually known her to say hello to for a few weeks, she managed one of the hostels I lived nearby. Anyway on my last night in Auckland we got together - which was incredibly, incredibly frustrating - as I was flying to christchurch (shithole) the next day. She's moved on to a little town in the North Island and asked me to come be with her, I'm going for it.
Also - terrified.
this is very exciting! How long are you going for?
I have no idea, need to find a job there pretty soon, or else not long!
good luck i hope it works out pal
I quit uni to pursue a relationship with an American girl who was moving back there in a few months time, that wasn't recent though but kind of related. Definitely a bit retarded in retrospect.
Very related - she's an American girl who will have to leave New Zealand at some point (June) too - but so will I, so it's unavoidable.
Good luck with that though, hope it all works out.
Hope it all works out for you.
I've not done anything outlandish recently, met a pretty girl on Saturday though, and now have a bit of a crush, but feel like it might just be a rebound thing, so gonna try and take it a bit slow. She's probably not even interested to be honest.
I'd never have the balls to do something like that, and I really hope it all works out.
Take it slow then, and stop thinking like that immediately. I decided to stop being such a pessimistic wimp this year, and tell people how I actually feel - It's the best thing I've done in a while :)
Unless you're in Iceland of course.
which was cool, and watched four lions and went to costa, which was also cool. But yeah, I'll give it another 'date' maybe and see how I feel then. She wanted to go in forbidden planet though...
There is nothing crap about that. She's obviously brilliant.
She uses judge dread comics for wallpaper, now I've gotta admit that's pretty cool.
If you don't like a girl who wants to go into Forbidden Planet then maybe you're just not cut out for this classic Indie loser in love life at all.
Time to start going down the gym and meeting girls who only want to talk about soaps at grim speeddating parties.
but if she wants me to go in games workshop I'm doing a runner.
I'm still not sure if it went well or not.
to see a guy I'd only met twice. That story doesn't end very well. I'm sure yours will end better. Romance ain't dead, eh?
I was fucked but he got on his knees and everything and I said yes.
We then (apparently) rushed to my hostel to pick up my suitcase as I was going to go with him to America and my friends were worried and locked me in the bathroom and told him to go.
Sobering up I remember him shouting through the day 'Lauren I'll take your scarf with me I will always remember you'
THIEVING BASTARD. Loved that scarf.
I think we connected ovr jack daniels and weed.
it was romantic at the time
flying to the other side of the country would take all of 15 mins, no?
hope it all goes really well for you.
this sounds really, really horrible.
I hope I can prove you wrong :)
you sound like a right bag of joy.
I once flew out to Bangkok to meet up with a girl i had met at home some six months earlier and had a 4 month fling with. She sacked me off after two days because it turns out she was a terrible cunt. Hope this American isn't a terrible cunt.
I'd say that was a spelling mistake but if it had been that story would've been significantly less depressing.
1)den of sex
2)den of shame
To go and stay with a girl I hardly knew in Dorchester. I had met her in Fopp in Bristol. It was new year's day and I was hungover and I got stuck in Castle Cary for nearly 2 hours due to my train being cancelled. (there, I met a man who tried to sell me some DMT) It kind of worked out in the end though.
This didn't go well.
but when i first saw this topic, i didn't think it would've done.
when this popped back up I was going to be all 'how did this work out man'
Screw it. it's a cool story anyway! hope you're having fun out there regardless of pan-coastal romantic misfires.
Better to have tried and failed, old man.
You'd need to inject the girl with some sort of personality. It was really, really dull & forced. Ah well, gave it my best.
I asked a stranger out in broad daylight the other day. No alcohol involved. It was a first.
I've got barely any time left at Uni now so I'm living like I was in freshers week, in terms of upping confidence with the birdz.
you know you can still get laid after you leave uni right?
still, the fact that you gave it a shot is genuinely a little bit inspiring. I'm with you on the whole being-more-positive-about-one's-chances-and-just-going-for-it thing this year, though I doubt I'll ever manage anything as admirably reckless as this.
Yeah, I would've never known otherwise, and we're still friends and such so no real harm done :) I got to learn to surf while I was there too. I'm not bad, though that sport is wetter than scuba diving.
Once 800 miles and it worked out (for a year anyway) and once 10000 miles. That didn't work as well.
