Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright, this is pretty straight forward, but I know some of you people like dispensing dating advice because it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
About a month ago I started hitting it off with one of my friends, flirting at parties, going for walks, generally just hanging out and talking about stuff. Stuff was going really well, but then picked up really fast before I knew what was going on. She was also pretty stressed out from midterm school work and some other personal issues, and she gave me the "I just want to be friends" line.
This frustrated me greatly, because I knew there was something there, and I knew she felt it too, but cut it short after even giving it a chance.
A few days later I talked to her to sort stuff out, and manged to get her out of her corner. Basically, she was scared she would ruin our friendship, and convinced herself of various doubts and whatnot. But after our talk, she saw what she was doing, and agreed to give me a shot with a few dates, but she's still trying to be really careful in case I turn out to be an asshole or something (we've only been friends for about 6 months, and she still doesn't know me that well).
So now I've got my chance, and I really want to knock her off her feet (albeit, without scaring her). Problem is, I really haven't been romantically involved with a girl since high-school, and although I've got some ideas, getting some tried and true suggestions and also some perspectives from the ladies would help me out greatly.
