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!
Not another one of these! Oh wait...it's you who says that.
I started the Winter term at my CC today. The last class was Interpersonal Communication which should be pretty self explanatory. We were asked to form groups of five and introduce ourselves.
I kind of hit it off with one of the girls in the group...in that I found it easy to talk to her and I think she felt the same. When class ended I struck up a conversation with her before we both walked out and it continued on the way to the parking structure. When I got there she asked where I was going (what level), I replied, and she said she didn't have a car but she'd follow me. Before we got on the elevator she said she usually walked home and without thinking long enough to doubt myself I asked if she'd like a ride.
We talked the whole way and the conversation flowed pretty easily, just general info that you exchange with someone you've just met. I dropped her off and said good night and since then I've just been thinking what my next move will be. I know I need to act fast to avoid the "friend zone" bullshit but for once I feel pretty confident. Maybe she's really trusting but I don't think most people would hop in the car with someone they met less than two hours ago. Or I'm making something out of nothing. This is where the doubt gets to me and I end up not acting. I don't know very much about her but I just got a really good impression from the whole thing, on an instinctual level, and I think I need to do something or I'll regret it.
I also don't know if she has a boyfriend but I really doubt it. She said she lives alone and didn't mention a friend or anything that sounded like that. She doesn't have a car though (don't think she can afford it with paying rent too) so I'll probably end up giving her a ride home tomorrow night. If I have any sense I'll ask her if she'd like to go get a cup of coffee or something on the way to the car....I'll probably know by then.
Thoughts, objections, and suggestions are all welcome and requested. If it matters, I'm 19 and she's 20.
