Yeah, jessop is still on track for success. Good stuff. But can he hold out and continue to keep it cool? Or will he lose it and at the last moment decide no one and nothing will come between him and his guitar? (apart from its case, of course.)  ;D

Meanwhile, Tfa will return renewed and confident of success with some 'angel' chick, but right now is momentarily leaving the field of play due to injury of the soul caused by Cafe chick -




As for Mirror Image -



I am prepared to engage in fisticuffs with him over the older, divorced mother.

Well that's one girl out, the cute Cafe chick has a boyfriend...oh well  :laugh:


Now my angel I was talking about yesterday is my main focus for this/next month at least  8)
Where did you post about her? I'm curious to know what she is like and what it is about her that you like.

I’ll let you have her, Nik. I’m a lover not a fighter. Never fight with a Scotsman. Never. I might if I was drunk though, because only then I don’t have sense enough to know I’ll lose. ;) ;D

I'm only half Scottish - that should help.  ;D
Alternatively, we'll double date and if things aren't going swimmingly we can swap.  8)  ;D

How do you read woman? It's impossible to tell


"Omg, did she just flash me??  :o, nah it was probably aimed at the guy behind me"  :laugh:

All of this talk is nice, but we really want to hear if you’ve asked this woman out yet? That’s the million dollar question.

No, it's not impossible.
You say to them *"Give me your number, I'd like to get to know you/take you out to x place at y time on z date". Their reply tells you the answer.

The problem with that is that -
1) It works.
2) Because it works it puts an immediate end to days (or weeks or even months...) of whining, pining, terrible terrible poetry writing and other forms of generic self-inflicted loon behaviour - and some guys seem to enjoy and live for that period.

I don't know if your joking or not but that gave me a lightbulb moment!  :o

You don't know if I'm joking?!  ;D

She already knows you're interested and so the longer you take to ask her the more time she has to consider that you're a fraidy cat and therefore not worthy of her favours. ( ;)) So, the sooner you ask and get your hopes dashed the sooner you can return that yellow waistcoat and get on to the next girl, when you'll know better and ask her out right away.

I am not joking.  8)

Choir is tomorrow night, so I'm gonna do it...or at least smash the ice and stamp on it  ;D


I'll have a conversation that turns hysterical, then when she is still amused or entertained by my humor, I'll throw it at her. "Hey (name), ** can I get you drinks? at $$/$$/2017?" Then if she says no, well I'll choose to not give a shit  ;)


** Well I'm not an alcoholic, so it'd be coffee but still

Looking forward to hearing how it turns out, Alien. Good luck! Keep us posted.

Today, I'm kinda seeing it all from an absurd angel..if you hadn't noticed  :laugh:

From where I'm sitting you appear to have hopped off the screen from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and straight on to the boat ride in the original Willy Wonka. But at least you've still a degree of self-awareness.  ;D

Also, I don't know what you make of it but my absurdist humor makes me believe that in general, if you make a fool or embarrass yourself the best thing to do is top it and embarrass yourself more because we're all deep down awkward humans that make a lot of mistakes, there's no use covering it up  :laugh:

Sure, we all make mistakes, but if you screw this up because of some ‘out on left-field’ joke, then I’m going to laugh at you (not with you). :) The key to absurd humor is making it accessible so people can understand it. Be more level-headed, grounded, and go in for the kill. Knock her dead, kid. I know you can do this. :)

Exactly.
And remember to keep breathing. Seriously, Tfa, be cool throughout, no matter the outcome.  8)

This girl I can't stop thinking about is driving me bloody mad  >:( >:(
I hate when that happens. It's really awful not being able to take your mind off someone. You can tell your mind to not get your hopes up, but it will never listen. Single and interested? Pssssh. Like that's actually reality. That's called "imagination."

Oh, yeah. I should probably correct myself about a post I made earlier. 2 girls I liked in the past 5 years, not one (one was recent).

Alien, if she says ‘yes,' I will play Janáček’s String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters” in your honor, but if she says ‘no,’ I will play Schnittke’s String Quartet No. 2. This way I can enjoy the outcome whether it’s a positive or negative one. ;) ;D
