    Just be blatant when you flirt

    for example

    HEY @Usagi YOU HOT

    And beyond just being generally clueless about that sort of thing I'm generally too shy and too guarded to ever feel comfortable expressing those kinds of feelings. What if I do something that outs me? Plus I feel like I can't take it seriously when I'm in guymode either because their interest is based on their gendered expectations and what they think they see but that's a false face I've presented to the world so I keep everyone at arm's length. Letting anyone in raises my anxiety level and flirting definitely makes me feel kind of vulnerable.

    My awareness of flirting tends to be super delayed. I'll be thinking back over a social situation weeks or even months later and go "Oooooh... dammit!"

    Partly in reaction to that, when I actually reveal that I'm interested in someone I tend to be very blunt and straightforward about it. The last thing I want is for anyone to doubt where they stand with me. But I can be kind of intimidating in person, and I don't want to freak anybody out by being subtle as a bulldozer, especially if I make them think that they're obligated to respond with similar fervor. I just don't have the instincts to navigate through a subtler approach, so mostly what I do is just shut up and keep it to myself until it's too late to do anything.

    I'm told by friends who I trust to accurately measure my behavior that I can be super charming... with people who I don't perceive as viable romantic partners. Abraham Lincoln was apparently just like that - when he met Mary Todd, she was engaged to another man, and Abe was like "whew, no pressure" so he could be like everybody's favorite guy at the party.

    social media has made me weary with strangers flirting. i feel like i need a rapport with someone ive flirted with. i have to have ate food and read something, and then discussed something beginning to end with a person. a lot of people on twitter are like *Catgirl Noise* Pet me!!!

    no, man. people need to work on sensible boundaries. stop leading off with flirting just talk like a regular ass person, or like, i dont know, try to come up with an approximation of that. theres also perception, and what people think youre about just because you talk about, or work on specific things. it can lead to a very mistaken perception that you have a way about you, that you most certainly don't.

    I’m still so burned after two relationships that had their roots here on the forums, @Gatsby and someone else (I’m sorry. I know you’re angry with me for mentioning it. I can’t pretend it didn’t happen. It fucked us both up.) and I really, really didn’t want to bring forum shipping up and crushes and everything. I didn’t want this. Fuck.

    Easy, Hyper. You haven't hurt anybody. Sometimes folks venture into potentially uncomfortable territory without meaning to. It happens all the time. I've done it plenty of times.

    Tube stepped in pretty early, before any harm was done, 'cause he's real good at his job.

    Stuff like that happens pretty regularly around here, because people can't predict the future and know how everyone around them is gonna respond to everything we say and do.

    Haha! If I could ingest caffeine and get normal human benefits out of it, I would totally write up that kind of contract. As it is, it doesn't really make me feel any more awake in the moment, but then I have trouble sleeping at night. *jazz hands*

    Luckily I don't have to drive him anywhere at 5am, but he's not very good at moving around quietly, and is also recovering from pneumonia, so he usually wakes me up as he clomps and coughs around in the kitchen. :rotate: I'm super proud of him though. He's really found work that he's motivated to do, and he's super diligent about getting up stupid early and making his breakfast and lunch, and getting to bed at a reasonable hour in the evening.

    going in for top surgery next week

    I'm mad at myself for not being reflective about this because it seems like it's something significant that's worth observing with solemnity/celebration instead of no thought at all

    probably this weekend I should sit down and write a contemplative essay about it

    I guess I'm also never really going to get the photos I wanted of me before the surgery, since I am not good at selfies and husband doesn't want to talk about it and has never wanted to take photos of me (we legit fight about this sometimes: he doesn't like being photographed and is just sort of uncomfortable with it all; I love having nice photos of myself and wish someone would take the time to try a bunch of photos so I actually looked good in one or two of them. To me, photographing him is a way of expressing my affection and admiration for his looks, so when he completely won't reciprocate, I feel irrationally slighted).

    idk

    complex feelings (o no wait it's me so actually pretty much just anger that I let out really unproductively last night, whoops)

    I'm going to obsess about roleplaying games instead I think

    Yeah, I feel the same way as your husband about photos of myself (I'd divorce Mori if he kept trying to take photos of me) BUT if I knew my partner wanted photos, I'd take them, because that'd be the right and nice thing to do for them. I hope your husband can get over himself and take photos of you before your surgery! And I hope your surgery goes well!

    @credeiki I've found a good method is to get sticky tack stuff and put your phone on a mirror or something and set the photo timer to like 5-10 seconds

    Pose, shoot, eventually you will like one!

    I wasn't contemplative or particularly celebrative over my GRS.

    My advice would be to keep this off the forums if possible and certainly to not @ Gatsby when talking about it. If I were them, that would make me very uncomfortable. You're certainly not the only person that this has come up with, but it isn't fair to either party or the community at large to bring up relationship grievances on here
