    I haven't checked. I could find out fairly easily, but I'd feel creepy. Browsing a guy's Linkedin page is one thing. Hunting down the books he hasn't discussed writing, and reading them is another.

    I hope he writes under a pen name. Then you find out the pen name and read his books and when you're talking mention you just started reading a series of books and the author is sooo talented and speaks to your heart and if he were in the room you'd totes makes out with him.

    Bah.

    Went swing dancing last night with my meetup group (I do it occasionally and gotten to a non embarassing level of competence) and had fun and all but damn, if I didn't leave feeling kinda down.

    Danced with a bunch of a cute women, tried my best to be engaging and apart from the dance didn't make any connections/interest.

    Rationally I understand there's tons of variables and what not, but damn if it's dissapointing/frustrating feeling like I'm constantly putting myself out there and doing everything people say you should do and not getting anywhere.

    Guys, I think I'm in love with this girl

    and the only thing stopping me from actually saying it is because maybe I should wait until I've seen her in person more than twice

    but yeah. We've been talking pretty constantly since our date Sunday and it's like we share the same brain. In fact, she thinks OKC was just an elaborate experiment to mould our brains together.

    It feels ridiculously good

    Okay, date today went well overall!

    Had a couple of hitches. The florist I was going to in the morning turned out to be open later than their website told me (boo hiss) but I'll get him flowers another day. There was a... Bit of a complication later that's a bit personal but we worked through it okay.

    Ended up both being way too tired this afternoon to feel like going out for dinner so we've rain checked that.

    But breakfast went across great, he loves the botanic gardens and had fun showing me around them, and the cat cafe was excellent indeed. Lots of laughing and smiling out in public.

    [...] achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds.
    i've caught myself in a situation with a particular lady that i feel pretty fantastic about, but there's a lingering issue about 6 months in that i'm having a lot of trouble reconciling. if anyone has had a similar experience and can offer advice, i'd really love to hear it.

    like i said, we're hitting just about the 6 month mark. it's been about 2 years since i've given anyone a really solid try in a relationship. i've dodged between gals here and there, but she really clicked with me, and i really dig her. there have been some pretty usual trials and tribulations, but we've worked through it. i'm a really busy guy and she's a busy gal, but we've tried and we both care so it's been alright.

    but we've come to a point where the passion seems absent. we treat each other like really good friends, like pals, but not necessarily like people who are going anywhere together. we've done dates, trips, and have had some great experiences, but for faults of both of our own, it seems like we just can't push past where we've fell into. she's had a lot of problems in the past and put up a lot of walls, and we've worked on that. i have the same issues. i dunno, i guess i'm afraid there's no bouncing back point.

    tl;dr is there ever a point where it's too late? we both seem to care about figuring out what's going on, and we're both working and trying. but it seems like something like this should be natural, just from personal experience. just looking for a light at the end of the tunnel i guess because i really don't like giving up.

  • InfidelInfidel Heretic Registered User regular
    It's never too late but you can't sit around waiting for change.

    Gotta recognize and try at it together. If that's too much, well, at least someone is giving up and that's sometimes how it is.

    This woman has a legitimate superpower that's both a blessing and a curse AND a tragic back story to go with it. I can't even fucking comprehend what I just went through. Never seen anything like it. Never even heard of anything like it. Hair trigger. Multiple. For all practical purposes unending. Wondrous. The homemade croissants weren't even the highlight.

    I'm like this too. I'm always amazed when people accept me, or find me attractive. I seem to expect people to dislike me by default, so it's shocking when I'm proven wrong. Yay, self-confidence... :?

    I write it off on so many people who I meet, I realize, like, write off the possibility that there could be interest without thinking of it, so don't even consider making an effort a lot of the time because what, no wayyy
