I Guess My Parachute Opened?

That... OR he should just forget about her. If it does not feel natural for him and if it feels awkward and uncomfortable for him to approach her in any way at any time at all, he should not pursue this any further.

Besides, she has a boyfriend, so there will only be tears in the end anyway.

That's an idea. If there's anyone else at a.cc living close to you get them to stalk her visibly to the point of terror then bamccaig happens to be in the neighbourhood, scares him away and wins the girl. Hurrah.

That could work bamccaig and I live at opposite ends of the same town...

If I want to get a girl I show her how I play my piano while working out on the Bow Jet. Gets them every time. ;)

Ignore her and hit on 5 other girls. It's what she wants you to do and it'll be better for you.

I'm afraid to ask, but what does that entail? By the way, says a man who had recently a "game over" :P ;D

I'd put my penis in a sub, walk in holding it and ask her if she fancies a nibble. Then again I've been single for a few years now.

There is no update. :P I haven't gone to get a sub since then. :) Mostly because I'm trying to save some money and buying a sub is more expensive so I only do it occasionally. And for the past two weeks or so I've been going regularly to see a chiropractor so I have less money than normal to spend. :) In any case, I intend to just keep it business unless she brings it up.

Ironically, that's probably the best way to get the girl.

While playing hard to get can work, in this instance she'd have to hunt down his place of work to interact with him. Unless she was already following him back to work from the sub shop earlier.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

I still have it, but I don't plan to call it. :P She wouldn't even know who was calling, and after explaining that to her (hoping she hadn't forgotten), I'd still have a hard time figuring out anything to do with her as just friends. :P Anything with just the two of us would be like a date so she (and her boyfriend) would probably be uncomfortable with that. Besides all that, the friend-zone sucks. :P

Be aware that there is a limited-time opportunity for you to pick things up again. If you ask for her phone number and then disappear for a month, it's not going to look good.

She hasn't forgotten.
She may have decided that you lost interest, but she hasn't forgotten.

Quote:

That's why you decide ahead of time what you're going to do, and you just ask her along. If you can't do coffee, then asking her as part of a group is probably the best thing to do that needn't feel completely awkward (depending on how social she is).

Quote:

Don't try to think for someone else. They're perfectly capable of doing it themselves, you get yourself worked up, and you may get it wrong. If she feels uncomfortable about it, she may just say no. If she doesn't say no and is still uncomfortable, then she probably won't say yes again. Either way, nothing lost by giving it a go.

Quote:

Besides all that, the friend-zone sucks.

Are you planning to marry this girl, or planning to talk to her so you get more comfortable talking to people, in particular, women?
If the former, then it's a bad situation. If it's the latter, not so much.

Why isn't there an algorithm for getting women :(

I'm sure there is, but in my experience it's inversely correlated with how much you want to get women.

It's pretty simple. If you don't have enough money to afford a real girlfriend, then just call your local pimp. :-/

Tell me about it. I have to go out of my way to avoid all the women who want me. >:(
