I'm completely naive, so in your shoes I would have assumed that she genuinely was very busy and that's why she wasn't able to reply sooner, but still interested, that's why she bothered to reply at all. But hey, what do I (an aromantic) know about dating? mccartney-shrug_01_gif

  

I’m choosing to go with this interpretation for now. I read about it, and apparently women don’t want to appear needy, so they can create distance. I’ll wait until Friday before replying again. Thanks for the feedback, BB family!

God , you dating people think so damn much. I'm glad not you. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Anyway, in my life, I've been on a Beatles fast for... I dunno... a long time. I just feel like giving them a break so I could come back to them. Anyway, today I decided to break my fast and so I'm going to go on a roughly chronological Beatlethon.

After being out of the dating game for 2 years, I've been working on getting back over the last month.  However all these dating standards and games and bullcarp are making me want to just put my time, energy, and money 100% towards my record collection instead.

Good news is I recently met a girl, who I believe in fact fancies me.  She will frequently start conversations over the texting, and she has asked me out on 1 of our 2 dates.

I believe she also will recieve BB approval as well since she quite likes the Beatles.  Also on one of our dates she was thumbing through the music on my phone as I was driving, and she picked out the lesser known Paul song posted below.  She said she had heard it previously, and that it was one of her favorites.

Not sure if she actually has a vast knowledge of Paul songs, or if she just ran into it on YouTube one time. My guess is the latter, but it was still a nice surprise to hear that she knew of such obscure Paul stuff.

I was sitting in the most boring economics lecture ever (you know I hate it). The lecturer is as loud as a mouse and I always sit at the front because I want firsts in everything this year so I can get scholarships if I ever do a master.

This gaggle of girls sits behind me, spends the first 5 minutes whispering loudly and snickering,. Exhausted, over-worked me’s thoughts come tumbling out of my mouth:

”will you shut the fuck up, I’m trying to listen”.

 

I die inside.

I don’t do this to people, I’d normally say “could you keep quiet please?” but I just vomited out an insult.

 

They do indeed shut up for about 10 minutes then back to: ”oooh I think I’m going to drop accounting”, “this lecture is soo boring”.

 

When it ends, I turn around and go “God I’m so sorry, I’m really stressed and didn’t know what I was saying, the lecturer talks so quietly and the sound reverberates in your ears so all I could hear is whispering.

They thanked me for my apology but added “there’s no need to swear though”.

Next time ye went to talk in class, sit at the back or just don’t go at all.

 

I’m going to find a hole to crawl into. This is what spending almost 30 hours over 3 days in the university does to you.

Listened to the White Album in full while walking around the city today. Revolution 9 played while I was on the subway, and it actually fitted quite well with the clanking and the hissing of the trains. 

I also went to see the Stonewall bar, where the riot started fifty years ago this past July, which was very cool.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Bloody hell, I think there were 2 mosquitos in my room, stress ‘were’ they’ve now become acquainted with my hoover.

 

Never seen them in Ireland before! Luckily, one of them buzzed over me when I turned off the light to read my kindle. 

 

The monsters love me as well so I’m happy not to have big bites on my face when I wake up.

 

Yuck, this better be a once-off where they managed to sneak off a flight from Spain trapped in someone’s luggage and had the misfortune of turning up in my room.

I mostly agree with your two sensible points......An over generalisation? Oversimplification? True.......Not wanting to appear over-needy? True and applies to both sexes....(saying both sexes will annoy some people but let's not go into that....unless someone really wants to).....

But the results are in, and in my life experience  I've had more success with 'ignore' than desperately running after a girl and jumping through her hoops..... 

Who really knows? The 'ignoring game'  is often played by both and it only succeeds in canceling each other out........ sometimes it works.......It's like an emotional version of 'paper scissors stones'..... I was rubbish at that.......5555.

She would have given you far more reliable clues as to her 'interest' during the date....

Follow your feelings Tim........Find the balance that works best for you. 

 

Sometimes we can't help ourselves...As I think John Donne said, 'Love is the most noble form of madness' 

Good luck.

I've only just come across these date posts now. Hopefully she just actually was very busy and that you get another oppurtunity to hang out, @Timothy! Best of luck! apple01heart 

Regarding my first day back, the timetable is all over the place. We have to go in to college on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, all at earlier times (well, only 15-30 mins earlier, but still paul-mccartney). I won't go into all the other changes but a good thing is we get to go home at 1pm on the Fridays, which means tomorrow!ahdn_john_08_gif
