Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

TUTS I'm actually considering a similar play on a girl I "met" last week. We had been introduced a few times in the past but they were a really long time ago and Wednesday was the first time we had hung out for any great amount of time. Turns out we have a ton in common and I'd actually like to pursue her.

Unfortunately we were walking back to my apt building and I'm about to get her number when another female friend of mine shouts "ILM!!!" from like 50 feet away and runs up and kills the conversation. So no digits.

BUT she told me to come visit her at work some time so I'll drop by some time week and ask her to coffee after she is off. Hate all you want on coffee but I think it is perfect for this type of situation.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

All the naysayers are likely to be correct in this case.

I need to go from being Pacino in Godfather III saying "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in" to being Pacino in Godfather II slamming the door in Kay's face remorselessly as she cries.

In response to TUTS, no I don't really know why she's still being discussed either. I keep on saying that I'll stop posting about it, then people ask me **** and I get drawn into further conversation about it. It really is pointless though.

Umm, well that's impossible for aforementioned reasons if you mean it in general.

If you're talking about not having "the talk," I do lean against it now but I make no promises as I keep flip-flopping.

Anyway, going out for the night. Talk to you all later.

At least she wouldn't show up at the Super Bowl party.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

the #1 girl i'm interested in, only one i'd want a relationship with, is finally going in the right direction. she invited me to hangout today and go shopping but i actually couldn't make it so that was a fail.

she's moving like 6hrs away for college in like 6 months so i'm hoping to have a short-fun relationship with her. i guess in a way it's setting myself up for a let down but at least this way i would never think to myself "why am i dating this girl if there's absolutely no way i'll be having sex with only her for the rest of my life" which i know is kind of ridiculous but in my last relationship that thought came up a lot.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

So just to keep the thread updated, I texted the girl over the weekend and it went really well. Everything is set up to "hang out" (It's definitely a date) over my next break.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to everybody in the thread.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

lkj - im an advocate of just telling her how u feel, its a good way to move away from this mind-boggling zone you're in right now

..or at least it will better define the situation.

posts that ask other people on the internet if a girl is physically worthy enough to date make me sad

As long as she's in to you go ahead but my two best female friends are 5'10 and 6'1 and SWEAR to me they'd never in a million years like a guy under 6'0. The empirical evidence also agrees.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

So A msn'd me before I headed out last night with the people so I asked her if she was coming out with us. She said something about being in her pyjamas but wanting to come out if it was "worth it". I laughed, told her I didn't care if she came out or not but that we wouldn't hold our breath, then left.

Went out bar'in and club'in with a small handful and fooled around with B. Standard.

Get over her. Just stop giving a ****. You don't have to go out of your way to hang out with her or not. If you feel like doing it go ahead, but I doubt you will. If you end up becoming genuine friends thats fine (I did in my situation), if you end up having a drunk/random hookup with her thats fine. But I guarantee that 99 times out of 100, you will NEVER have a relationship with this girl. There is too much weird drama that has gone on (at least on your end, who knows her story...).

You are going to probably feel a little weird for a few weeks at social situations around her, but after not that long you won't, and then she's just another person. It really does just happen like that.

The "nonzero" chance is irrelevant. You don't chase a gutshot on the turn just because you "might" get there. It's gotta be worth it, and this girl flat out AINT.
This is pretty well said. Just move on to the next girl and forget about her, and if you genuinely enjoy her company just be friends. It's not worth wasting your time on this girl. Go find another one.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

Alright, all the input is appreciated. If I do decide to exercise that nuclear option (which would almost surely be a kamikaze move being done for practical reasons), I'll post about it, otherwise I truly have no more plans to ever post about that girl again.

Some girls I was partying with this weekend successfully talked me into joining them in Vegas for spring break. And I'm going to the gym tomorrow with a girl I've always found attractive since meeting her, I offered to teach her racquetball and she's all excited and we've been texting today. No serious prospects or anything, but hanging with other girls and trying to put this whole other fiasco in the rearview.

Haha, amusingly enough, I did teach one girl racquetball a few months back and part of me was almost turned off by just how insanely bad she was. I was practically serving lobs to her just to get her into the game, and she wasn't able to return them.

She looked hot in the workout clothes, but that only went so far. (I didn't actually disqualify her over her racquetball skills, but I sure as **** never invited her to play with me again.)

Also, you should tell this story if there is one.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

someone actually mspainted the story on the yankee thread

and this girl played basketball in college, has 2 inches on me easily (in height, thank you) and is pretty athletic... but she still only beat me like twice ever and both times were because i lifted before we played (stupid) and was exhausted by the last match or two

Certainly seems like the dynamic of teaching a girl racquetball would generally be a favorable one. I mean, truly zero expectations with this one, I'd be more than happy to just find someone to play racquetball with regularly as I far prefer it to just hitting up cardio machines at the gym.

Still, it seems like doing something athletic with a girl is always pretty good as long as you're not LOL bad at whatever it is.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

Ok with Valentine's Day coming up I have a sink plan but need a bit of advice regarding one bit-

Girl I posted about first in this thread, that I'm pretty crazy about and I know lieks me back but has a boyfriend, well she no longer has a boyfriend (ship it). I saw her in the club the other night, I can't remember the exact conversation, but she said something like "oh I thought you of all people would have heard" I was like "nope, wut?" and she just said "nevermind" and then "I'll tell you later".
She never did tell me later but then I didn't see her for the rest of the night.

Fast forward to the other night, we both say we're bored over fb chat, and she ends up inviting me round for coffee. It's cold out and I cba to walk, and also don't want to be insta-yessing even though I want to, so I bust out the smooth lines and end up getting her to come to mine instead. We watch a film and stuff, chat forever cos this girl is awesome, and it's like 3.30am so she decides to go. She's like "oh a guy nicked my keys as a joke before i left, shall I just ring the doorbell or ring him first?" and i'm like "I dunno, text him first maybe". He doesn't reply, so she says "what should I do?" obv I bust out more smoothness - "you can sleep in that chair if you want" with a smile. laughaments. then I say "nah seriously, you're welcome to stay here if you like". She says "hmm no I shouldn't" with a smile. I say "it's up to you" and she says again, "nah I shouldnt". I'm wondering if I'd have been better off telling her she's staying round rather than offering.

So that's the situation. I have this piglet teddy that I won on a teddy crane machine in one of the bars here (i know, epic), and we have a running joke that I was meant to win it for her one night, failed, then won it another night, and so she wants it. So for V-Day, I'm thinking send her the piglet in a box. But I can't decide whether to include a V-Day card or not. No card is far more casual but still pretty sweet, but with card has far more serious connotations and I don't wanna f it up, as we're pretty much best mates as well. She'll know it'[s from me without the card, but it's jsut whether I keep it as a casual valentines type thing, or a more obviously valentine's day thing.

any suggestions? could jsut be completely overthinking it obv.

Re: SL "Ask Out A Girl" Thread

Cheers, I'm also leaning towards no card. It's valentine's night at the SU on Friday, so I'll try and have it delivered on Friday morn ideally.

Another problem - about delivering it - in our halls, our post gets delivered to the same place, i.e. our reception. Do i post it normally, say, wednesday so it should be there Friday morning for her to pick up? Do I save the hassle and just ask the reception lady to treat it as post for this girl? Or do I somehow get it delivered to her door via the use of one of her flatmates?

Thing is, I really want her to get it on the Friday morning to set up Friday night, but parcel alerts are sent by email which she may not check, I've no idea how regularly she checks her emails.
