    I'm not surprised. The way I explain it is: think about what I'd do/think/want, and {insert girls name} doesn/thinks/wants the exact opposite. If you went on a date with a girl, were interested but didn't hear back for weeks, you'd forget about it, no big deal, exactly what I'd do, but a girl will start calling or texting again.

    Re: Singles Part 14: Come Get Some!

    The trick, which I have not yet mastered, is being aloof enough yet engaging said girl. My weakness is that I try and use weekends as times to meet up, and most people are booked on weekends at some point. Case and point this weekend I invited a girl I met in boston out on Saturday as a group thing ( a huge group!), but shes busy in the AM. To be truthful, it was a counter offer to her wanting to watch the bruins game weds which I could not do..

    I've been told that the key is meeting new people on the weekends and going out with them during the week. Not sure that it really matters.

    In the past, and with the current GF, I've found that to be true. You'd meet somebody interesting on the weekend at a bar, party or some event, and then meet up for lunch or after work drinks during the week. But nothing too "structured" like a date. If that went well, you might plan something for a Friday or Saturday night.

    this is my rationale since most people use the weekend time with friends, and weekday time doing very little after work. Sunday afternoons work well too. I've had moderate success with that time period.

    Confusing boy finally clarified, here are the main points:
    He hasn't tried to sleep with me, because he doesn't just want that
    He isn't looking for something serious
    If I'm starting to like him, I must stop
    He just wants to hang out and have fun

    Perhaps you overestimate your attractiveness.

    Or he wants nothing to do with a crazy who's life isn't going anywhere.

    For the record, it is important to recognize that these explanations are not mutually exclusive.

    If a guy isn’t making the move, they aren’t into you. When I am ever in a situation where I am unsure, ask yourself this. Would said chick give the same excuse to tom brady? In your case, would a guy say something like that to Blake lively, or Megan Fox? If you even for a second think “no”, than you have your answer and its best to move on.

    Re: Singles Part 14: Come Get Some!

    I finally got to hang out with girl #1 this weekend, after about 4 weeks of talking and not finding a time that would work, due to work schedules and her being out of town for 2 weeks. After Friday night, I have to say, if I can pull this off there aren't words for how awesome it would be, and the incredible thing is, I think I'm actually well my way to doing just that.

    Several other nights we have both been out drinking, and have tried to meet up just to hang out casually, it has never worked out for one reason or another. Going into last Friday we were going to try to head to the same bar, she texts me at about 11:00, she is at some crappy place downtown and isn't having much fun, I am at Toby Keith's with MNS and JF_Gophers, because people apparently don't understand that parking lots are important in Uptown. (after driving around for 30 minutes not finding a place to park we said eff it and went to Toby's) She ends up getting a cab to Toby's, we ended up having a great time dancing and just hanging out. After a while she wants to go to St. Paul, because some friends were at Reid's, where she works, she wants to know if I want to come along. I was drunk, so of course I did. She hadn't drank very much and said she could drive, which I took her word for, she sure seemed fine to drive. So we go to my truck, because I said I'd let her drive it, she says she'll have no problem driving it. I have an '08 3/4 ton diesel, 6-speed manual truck, she is about a 5'4", 100lb hot blonde girl, and she was right, she had no problem with driving the truck. That was awesome. We got to St. Paul, drank a bunch more, until bar close, after bar close we went back to Reid's where she works, and they let her in, since she works there, but they wouldn't let me in, because it was after bar close. We ended up getting separated and going separate ways at that point, unfortunately. But it was a great night, I'm hoping we can do something again soon, but we'll see.

    Yeah, but I'm sure she's going to want something that lasts more than just a good 6 pumps or so.

    Exactly!

    So, gay boy brought a girl into Applebee's while I was working. Right after, he texted me and said, "don't worry, she's just a friend" uhhhhh huh.
