Walking around aimlessly like ants is a person’s way to make friends. Or is it? As we walk around campus some notice no real edging to a communal stop and chat. Hell, no real conversation between any strangers. People have become ants in a farm. What is meant by that is that no one cares […]
A lot of couples like the ideas of kids, getting married, settling down in a cozy log cabin with a bear family carved out of wood out front…
Since we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day today, let’s see how some of the common ways people in and out of relationships go about this day.
You’ve finally done it. You’ve fought through your own personal hell to change your standings in the dating sphere. You’ve gone from being someone who’s really nervous with girls and doesn’t have the best of wardrobes to the complete opposite. Now you’re oozing with confidence, your wardrobe has improved dramatically, and talking to girls is a walk in the park.
So it’s Friday night and you’ve been invited to a (potentially) rocking party by some of your friends. Even better though, is the fact that at this party the girl that you’ve been hitting it off with will be there. The question then enters your mind, “What am I going to do? She’s going to be there with her friends as well as a bunch of other people!”
Things were going so well. The two of you had been going out for almost two years. Everything seemed perfect. Then she started acting wierd over the last couple weeks. She seemed really distant and uninterested when you had something to say. Then you got a text from her saying “We need to talk.”
Congratulations! You’ve finally mustered up the courage to ask out that super cool girl with the red hair. On top of that, SHE SAID YES! Now what?
Flirting. So much emphasis is (rightly so) put on the power and the importance of flirting. This might seem rather daunting for someone who’s still getting the hang of this whole dating thing, but it’s really not. In fact there’s really nothing to worry about. Flirting isn’t particularly complicated or something that’s supposed to be intimidating. In fact, it’s really simple when you boil it down.
Breakups suck. Everyone knows this. “But she seemed so perfect. I mean she was the “one.” I’ll never meet another girl like her. I guess I’m just destined to die alone.”
I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that at some point in your life, you’ve wished you could look/act like someone else when playing the dating game. You might have thought “If only I had confidence like George Clooney or was built like Ryan Gosling. Maybe then my batting averages would improve.” Well guess what, this attitude will get you nowhere.
That dreaded moment when you’ve finally built up the courage to ask out that girl who you’ve had feelings for. You finally lay it all out on the table only for her to give you the line “I think we should just stay friends.” The conversation/future encounters with this girl tend to get a little awkward afterwards.
This week I’d like to impart a simple phrase that will carry you a long way in the dating world. Burn bridges. Confused? Look at it this way, treat your dating life like you (hopefully) would the rest of your life. Live without regrets.
