    Tonight I was out walking in the forest with a cute girl I know who lives nearby.

    We were chatting about how it's hard to find not-idiots to date and that it'd be nice to at least have someone to sleep with.

    And that's about the point in the conversation where I smeared myself in dogshit.

    My mental image for this is amazing.

    You're just walking along conversing, it's a beautiful tranquil evening in Northern Europe.

    Then you pull a handful of dog shit out of your pocket and smoosh it against your face, your eyes locked with hers, unwavering and unblinking. You slowly drag your hand down your cheek, then after rubbing it across your throat to your collarbone you hold out the faeces covered hand for her to hold, eyes still staring deep into her very soul.

    also i should ask this girl out on another date even though i feel like she might not be interested anymore
    but i am hesitant for whatever reason
    idk why because if i do and she doesn't want to then i am just in the same place
    but at the same time i dunno what to do or when or how or idk i think too much
    it will take me literally 30 seconds to write a text and say like hey do you want to get drinks at x place this week

    i should just do it right

    Bud, this is not unusual in the least. There is comfort in not knowing. There is that part of your brain that would rather hold onto the chance, than rule it out altogether.

    100% maybe can feel better than 50% no.

    But good on you for sending that text. If you want to see her again then maybe she wants to see you too.

    Something to think about in the future - if you're on a first date and you want to see that person again, start planning the 2nd date during the first date. Mention places in town you like, offer to take them there, talk about things you like doing and suggest they do them with you some time. Even if you don't make firm plans at the time, it can make setting up that difficult sophomore date a much less daunting task if you say "Remember when you said you'd crush me at bowling, how about we find out tomorrow night?"

    Is good lesson tho

    As I'm sitting here waiting for my clothes to dry my aunt and her roommate decide to stop over.

    I haven't showered yet today and I'm a greasy stubbly unwashed mess.

    And my aunt's roommate is a very attractive young man.

    Kill me now.

    Oh and I also got a "[birth name]...I mean Heather" from my aunt which only served to mortify me even further. It's been over two fucking years. If you don't know my name by now, then don't fucking talk to me.

    @bowtiedseal‌ I saw your post on Facebook and I didn't want to pry, but I was sincerely hoping it was anything else than what it appeared. I'm so sorry. I'm giving you a world of mental hugs right now, although I know it can't ameliorate the situation at all.

    I have a trans great-uncle, it's been like 30-40 years, and my grandmother still has to catch herself every once in a while.

    Should have tried to woo her by singing songs from Frozen to her, by the way

    I know that feel, though I'm not trans. I am called dog A's name, dog B, Bro 1, Bro 2, Sis , before Virgil by my parents.
    It horrifying, because I do this to friends all the time. Sometimes, it's just using the name of the last person I've addressed. Also you don't want to slip and address someone you're having relations with, via a family member's name. There have been uh, some real awkward moments because of this.

    How do you find love in a small town when you're gay? I still haven't figured it out. I'm going to volunteer at the local community theater because it's the only social activity here that doesn't involve church, sports, racing, or drinking. Also, theaters are cool.

    Theatre was also a de facto meeting place for a lot of gay communities a lot of places!

    I'll admit a few fantasies have rolled around in my head since sending an email off for volunteer information. :rotate:

    A few years ago we had a sudden onset of Fall. the leaves began to fall like rain leading to a curious and wonderful sound.

    I only wish more people were around to experience it. It really was a thing of amazement.

    I get to wear my awesome suede jacket in the fall and sometimes one of my scarves. Plus some of the best food goes best with fall. Warm soups and stuffings and things that involve gravy. Stuff that was designed to bring warmth to every part of your body.

    I like Spring the most. Mostly because not only do all the flowers come back and the grass and trees turn green again, but it heralds the end of the bitter, freezing days and even worse Winter nights.

    I have been discussing getting pizza and seeing the new TMNT with a girl on Tinder, but she hasn't gotten back on since I asked what day would be good for her.

    And no matter how many times I check my phone she still hasn't gotten back on the app. Woe is me.

    I know dinner and a movie is as trite as trite can be, but I figured Pizza before a TMNT movie was actually a decently clever idea.

    The Fall was fucking amazing. It is the most visually awesome movie I've ever seen.
