Re: weird social roles you find yourself in

There are a couple of my old friends I think of as the 'hub' -- they're the host of the parties, they're somewhat more outgoing, but have a bunch of quieter people who circle around them who aren't really friends with each other. I'm...one of the people in orbit. (I want to make a solar system anal...

Re: Just an observation, (Threads about love, sex, etc.)

I was going to make a post on this, though I was going to do it on the metaboard. Anyway, from my point of view there's nothing wrong with threads about sex and sexual things. However, I do worry that they'll attract some bizarre, creepy types to the fora. That thought does bother me. For some reas...

Oh. 'kay! I figured "trip to someplace else" meant no intertubes. What the hell was I thinking, when everyone has a cell phone? -_-;

Re: How to stop falling?

Camping in this context would mean waiting for her to log on the minute she's online after returning from the trip and sending her a messaage. For some reason, if you were to do that, it'd strike me as a bit.... desperate? I don't know. I'd feel like, by doing that, I'd be saying that I had nothing ...

Re: How to stop falling?

Part of me interprets it as this: she has at least some interest in you (whether it be as a friend or otherwise...) because she isn't avoiding you and is holding 6hr conversations with you. Beware: she may simply be viewing it as casual flirtation. Weird MSN tools? Doesn't every client by default te...

Re: How to stop falling?

What makes you think waiting will make it better? Cause I've known her for an entire two days. :oops: You're going to have to show some interest at some point if you want to actually make your fantasies something resembling a reality. See if she wants to do things with you alone and not with a grou...

Re: Movin' To New England

The timelock I've given myself is roughly 5 months, so there's the off-chance of me being gone before the winter hits, but I guess I should be prepared for it. About how early in the year does one see snowfall? I've been in real snow maybe twice. Thanksgiving through March is the usual snow zone up...

Re: How to stop falling?

... You could try bottling up your feelings and denying any interest in her at all, causing all future interaction with her to be seen through the lens of unrequited love, straining your friendship to the breaking point, and causing you lie awake at night wondering what it's like to die alone.

Re: in preparation for Boston migration

I'm about 2 hours from Boston, entirely in the western part of the state. It'll get old fast driving the Pike to get there, so my suggestion is to live as close to it as possible -- and probably not on the Cape Cod side of the state, after having seen that highway traffic a few times. Even if you th...
