I have visitors turned off because I don't want people I know in real life to know that I'm creeping on their profiles!

Ahh well that makes complete sense. Now I'll have to adjust how I use OkC. Thanks for letting me know.

I actually kind of maybe have a crush on someone!

If you've been following my life lately (everyone has been right??) you might know that I recently dated someone for three months right on the heels of the most devastating heartbreak I've ever experienced, which was just as terrible of an idea as it sounds like, and there was no really crush involved in that, just me being sad and liking that someone liked me so much, and then growing to like her but never really as much as she liked me, and obviously it ended up being a caramel cluster because how could it not.

I am still horribly sad 98% of the time but I went on two dates with a girl I think I kind of like. Though now it's just this terrible thing where I'm very stressed out about kissing her at some point, which is more complicated by the fact that she doesn't drink. I have absolutely no problems with someone not drinking except for it is hard enough to kiss someone for the first time when I am drunk, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DO IT SOBER??

I not only can't make a move, I physically can't put my head in a space where she could make a move because even that makes me feel too awkward.

what if you have a drink and she has a seltzer? Or just not stress about it, make eye contact and go for it!

So... It seems most of the messages I send to people on okc are either political, or involve Star Trek or Batman. It's like I don't know how to interact with other humans.

So, I just got back from watching a movie on my friend's rooftop. This is a friend that I met through okcupid (we went on one date but had no romantic chemistry). Then two other people showed up... and both of them were also dudes I had met on okcupid. So, just me and three okcupid dudes hanging out watching a movie on a roof.

Super super super super suuuuuuuper weird!!!

It had potential. But it was super cold and windy and the movie was bad, so meh.

So, interesting story today: I went on a date a little over 2 months ago with this guy who was more attractive in person than online, but still rather quiet/awkward. I was pretty into another guy (who I dated for a month or so) and when I texted this guy he said that I wasn't what he was looking for. Eh. Whatever, it's cool. But TODAY. He texts me "I made a huge mistake in letting you go. I'd like to be hiking friends or more if we can work towards that" or something along those lines.

I don't think I'm going to respond. Just a gut feeling. No hard feelings, just I dislike indecisiveness especially in the form of 'oh hey I didn't want you then but something's changed and now I do!'

I did kiss her.

It was painfully awkward.

Just going to die now.

She was sitting squished up right against me (her doing!) for like four episodes of Orange is the New Black why was it so weeeeeird. This is definitely why alcohol exists.

Orange is the New Black + kissing sounds like a perfect night. And if she wants to keep it up, that's definitely great!

You're missing the part where the kissing was horrifically awkward though. I am still cringing about it. But hopefully that will improve...

If I never drank, would I be more smooth sober because I would have more practice, or would I just be this awkward 100% of the time?

I imagine it will get less awkward as you get more practice - when you're drunk you're probably equally awkward, but you just don't realise it. Anyway, if she still wants to hang out with you and stuff then I'd say that's a sign that it wasn't as awkward as it felt :)

I am still awkward, but I am 500 times more confident.

I don't even like being drunk in general so really it's all for the best.

I think I drink out of awkwardness a lot, but I don't even really like being drunk to be honest. I did go out with friends recently and drank 3 alcoholic drinks in the space of 6 hours, which gave that nice tipsy buzz without actually being drunk and I had a great time, and it was all the better for not having a hangover and the associated anxiety the next day.

More on topic, I feel so guilty about not replying to messages on okc. Unless it's a few word message that I have no idea how to respond to, I feel obliged to respond even if I don't really want to talk to the person who sent the message.
