    guess what guys, I finally got around to talking to my potential girlfriend. But to get to the conclusion I must talk about what led up to it.

    (we'll call her Bonnie for ease of communication)

    Sooo... 2.5 months ago Bonnie moved to my city, I didn't know her at the time, but over the last few weeks I got to know her better and better. To the point where she was somebody I wanted to be more than a friend with. I got the courage (and oprotunity) to ask her some dating advice:

    from what I could tell she liked me, but then I get this:

    I don't know what to think, so I'm venting on you guys, sorry.

    (don't worry I'm not going to kill myself over one trip)

    Terwonick, if there is one thing you should learn from this... is that there will always be someone for you*. So don't worry about it, you're young (frankly, I don't think you should worry about girlfriends and such right now, just focus on school or your friends. But thats just the mean old frozen talkin')




    *Unless you are Prestige.

    No matter wat you do, don't go into friend zone. She's either your girlfriend or your enemy. There is no alternative.
    I know because I read it on the internet once.

    I would wait it out, if she likes you getting to know her better isn't going to change that and if she was trying to be nice by letting you down then you were allways going to be just friends.

    I'd still hang out with her and when you think she's over her dead bf (which will probably be quite some time tbh) then ask her out.

    If her last boyfriend committed suicide it's probably for the best that you're not going out with her...

    Nah, but in all seriousness i've learnt that ultimately rejection is just rejection no matter the reasons or excuses given. I'd never advise in taking it personally. The amount of times a girl has lied to me because she thinks i'll be crushed... I actually get more wound up at those situations more than them simply being honest about things and saying they're simply not interested in persuing a relationship with me. The classic "i'm seeing someone else" pisses me off to no end. Plenty of times I have been asked out by THEM and then they turn around at the next social event and are like "actually, yea i have a boyfriend". A) You clearly don't, if it was an innocent firendly invite why would you say that before anything else to me (like enquiring as to my intentions) and if it wasn't merely an innocent friendly invite why would you say that to me if you did have a boyfriend in the first place.

    Girls say stupid shit all the time because they think they'll crush your heart and ultimately the reasons they give don't mean anything, what they desire whether they were honest or not is that they want to be friends and not have a relationship. She clearly wants to be your friend and you will either be friends or you can't handle that and you'll grow apart because you only wanted more.

    Frozen, don't worry about my grades, they're all A's, and in at least one of my classes I have like 107%.

    Grazr, I can understand where you're coming from. I think I'll try to keep Bonnie and I's friendship in tact.

    to the rest of you, I don't get worked up about many girls, I've never had a gf, and I choose girls I "like" very wisely. I think I made bonnie cry... it's ironic because her twin sister was the one I origanally liked and I could have used this advice then. But I'm going to live and the world won't end today. I know better than to push a girl for something she doesn't want, and I can accept that she doesn't want to go out with me (at least right now).

    all of that beside, it proves that my idea that "procrasination always works" is right, if I had waited another 6 months, she might've "been ready"

    If you'd waited another 6 months you'd potentially have missed plenty of other worth while opportunities with other girls that objectionably deserve equal amounts of your interest. I know i have.

    When i was 19 i missed 3 opportunities to go out with girls i really liked because i was waiting months on my ex of 3 years to make up her mind on whether she wanted to get back together or not. I was an idiot and biased to the fact that i could potentially salvage something familiar and that had worked and been great (the reasons for our breakup were purely third party based (her family)). In the end i waited 20+ months only for her to get with another guy without telling me and i had missed a number of great opportunities along the way. But i guess that's always the gamble; you apply a certain amount of value onto something you become familiar with, such as a budding friendship, rather than something you cannot account for like future friendships/relationships.

    The important thing i guess is that you had the courage to bring it up and say how you felt even if you were rejected in the end.

    I just don't want to be an ass and go out with her sister (she likes me too)... who was just going out with one of my best friends (I don't think anybody else but my friend and I know they've broken up yet). Another thing is that Bonnie and I took bets on how long they'd last (I won with < 3 weeks).

    She rejected you... if her sister likes you, it's none of her business. If you went out i could see how that'd be a major mind fuck, but you didn't. She said she thinks you're a sweet guy so she should give you her blessings rather than get in a hissy fit.

    :)

    If I were you, if you like her sister go out with her. it cant do any harm as she says she cannot be with you.

    There's two things everyone can learn from this:
    1: Girls are compilcated
    2: Where's Aly?

    you guys always cheer me up, thanks

    DrP, I don't think I could be persistant without being creepy.

    I understand what you guys are saying... It just sounds like a bad episode of MXC where guy ledouche gets twins he hits on.

    I don't want to be guy ledouche.

    Sit down and shut up. You're about to get the best dating advice ever. Please note, this is not advice on how to get laid every weekend. The following shit will improve your life.

    1) Just be friendly and nice to a lot of bitches. Fat ones, ugly ones, whatever. Girls are people too and are pretty fucking cool. So be real even if you don't plan on dippin' your dick in. Form meaningful friendships with women and you'll actually know what they are like.

    Effect: Girls know other girls, and your circle of potential women will expand. Also you'll be a decent human being.

    How you broke this rule: A few fucking weeks isn't enough time to get to know anyone you child. You don't know her, and she sure doesn't know you. Girls spend a ton of their time fending off lusty neck-beards and can spot 'em a mile away. Today you were that jerk.

    Edit: Also "my potential girlfriend" is creepy sounding. My past-life vagina is so skeeved out I'm feeling it hurt in my taint.

    2) Treat all bitches and bros the same. Like for reals the same, not "I'm nice cuz you got tits" the same. Sorry Grandpa, but if you don't hold a door open for a man, but you do hold a door open for a woman, you aren't a nice guy; You are a sexist asshole. Apply this thinking to all human contact and you'll be a genuine and consistent person. Those are sexy traits to everyone and you'll find it easier to get job promotions, someone to come pick your ass up when your car breaks down, and even some choice booty.

    Effect: You form meaningful relationships with both men and women.

    How you broke this rule: People fucking hate it when you talk in backwards passive-aggressive code. Girls are people. Don't approach them with cryptic word puzzles and expect them to fall all over your dick.

    3) Do some fucking push-ups. Your flabby arms manage to dry out the sluttiest va-jay-jay.

    Effect: You can masturbate with increased vigor.

    How you broke this rule: You're not doing push-ups now, asshole.

    God this annoys me. Either you're a winningly persistant suitor, or a stalker, based entirely on how much they liked you already.

    Yea, funny that. It's an odd thing that whether something is considered sweet or creepy is based purely on the recipients perspective on you. You read a girl a poem and if they're attracted to you it's romantic as hell, if they're not you get a restraining order.

    see, I don't want to be the asshole who does that


    p.s. I don't think my message was very cryptic, and I don't plan on getting laid every weekend (or until I'm married to the person)
