No no no, it's cool to laugh at me. Don't worry, I'm only here for your amusement. Me getting stood up was the best thing that could have happened to POG. Right Scott?

Nah, the best thing that could have hapenned was if it turned out that she had a group of hot friends who want to try a social experiment of having sex with random people who post on poker message boards all over the country, and she wanted you to help them find some.

But other than that, yes.

Re: lol kyro has a date

Girls have a VERY HIGH FLAKE FACTOR. This is just the way things are. This is like 200% true for the internet.

Don't worry at all. Try to be more confident though...saying you are a downer probably means that is being communicated to them even before they actually meet you. I have read a ton of your posts before you left STT and I never thought you were a downer. I thought you were very smart, funny, and a bit edgey. THESE ARE AWESOME TRAITS THAT MAKE GIRLS EXCITED!

Re: lol kyro has a date

I can't even IMAGINE getting stood up by that chick and NOT posting her MySpace page here.

Seriously. It's like so alien to me.

Meh. Basically we've been talking alot over Myspace (she doesn't have AIM which is like...impossibly to conceive), and she said she'll be free Saturday night so I could should give her a call if I want to do something. I don't see it as being a backup plan.

Also, she looks like a genuinely nice person, unlike the last one who looked like she was possibly crazy. You know the type. Well, you, Scott might not, but the rest of you do.

If I call her before Saturday, I'll feel obligated to actually talk on the phone to her. I completely freeze up trying to talk to make conversation on the phone...especially with people I don't know. If I call Saturday, we can make plans and I'll meet her face to face, something I'm much more comfortable with.

Re: lol kyro has a date

Kyro

I, too, despise talking on the phone.

A suggestion for you to consider - call her tonight. Say something along the lines of "I'm heading out with some friends in a couple minutes, but I wanted to set something up for tomorrow night. Let's do X"

That way, you get her a day in advance, but you don't have to make conversation.

I'm not an expert here, but I don't think that setting up a first date to do drugs is the way to go.

X may be a good choice for Kyro on a first date.

Re: lol kyro has a date

Kyro,

[censored] call her today.

If you really are that phobic about the phone, email her, but that is lame.

Try writing down what you want to say. Like:

"Hi, it's Kyro. I'm calling about Saturday night, would you like to go to XXX for dinner then YYY for drinks?" (Be specific if you cannot improvise well on the phone).

Then you can beg off. You don't have to have a conversation on the phone. You can say either something like "I am in the middle of something but I didn't want to leave you hanging" or "I am on my way out the door" or "I really suck at talking on the phone, I just freeze up, but I don't do that when talking in person."

If you call her on Saturday she may very well have made other plans (hell, she may have by now).

Re: lol kyro has a date

When I call and ask for a date, I never keep talking on the phone.

Call, ask, "ok cool, I'll see you saturday"...click

Re: lol kyro has a date

that should work zurv, but hopefully kyro will tape the conversation for us in case this happens:
kyro: hey, im heading out in a few minutes with some buddies, but i wanted to set up something with you for tomorrow night.
her: oh? where you guys going?
kyro: um, hrm,ahhh, .....click

I also dislike talking on the phone to people I don't know particularly well, and I wouldn't do the above. You'll end up sounding unnatural if you try to read a prepared speech. Just figure out more or less what you want to say and call her.

Also, you might try having a few drinks first. Seriously.

Depending on the exact tone of what was said, this may be true. I think calling her either today or tomorrow is fine. Either way.
