UGH. OKC keeps showing me these super gorgeous people with really excellent swoony profiles...who live like 50 miles away. WHY.

i dunno, maybe you could make it into a weekend thing. find a restaurant or some shopping you'd like to do that's in that area so you can do stuff on your own, then go on a date. i live really far away from a city and this is what i do.
EDA: i mean, they're probably looking at your profile and thinking, "oh man, she's so swoony!! but she lives 50mi away!! she'd never agree to it..." why not make the incentive?

I'm kind of thinking about it. The only guy I successfully dated from OKC was kind of a ways away but not that far.

Huh, that's funny. Every online thing I've ever done we've both exchanged numbers before hand.

i've had people who wouldn't stop texting /calling me so i don't do it anymore. plus it ensures the person to be punctual, tardiness is a pet peeve of mine.

Yeah, that's why I don't want to give out my number. One guy called or texted me every day almost every day after our one and only date, along with emailing me, for a few weeks after our meeting. I ended up changing my number, not entirely because of him but it was a factor.

I got a $10 prepaid phone today and am going to purchase 200 texts for $5 a month, which I think is worth it for peace of mind. This whole thing came up because a guy gave me his number to set up a date for this weekend.

that's not too pricey and it's worth it to have your sanity in case you have to deal with a yoohoo. plus you are glamorous now that you have two phones.

I am the worst at telling if people want to date me or be friends. THE WORST. Aaaah why is everything is so awkward I just want to make out but I don't know how to do that!

My last words to her were (regarding her not being able to find her car and being super embarrassed about it) "Honestly I think you're adorable so I would probably find whatever you do endearing." And then I hugged her and ran away. She she probably knows I have a crush on her at least, and am super awkward.

I never thought I'd be able to be forward, I am definitely a super awkward shy person. But one guy I was interested kept saying how much he loves forward guys, so I decided it would be more worth it for me to (I thought at the time, just with him) become really forward. It ended up feeling so good, and knowing that he liked it made me more confident to do it. Now I do it with lots of guys, and it's been positive responses every time. Some guys still make me too nervous to do it, and sometimes even with ones I've done it before I might clam up at a different time; but damn, I'm working on it, and it's becoming hella fun.

I think if I'm rejected to my face I'll probably cry though?

And she hasn't texted me so maybe I was too forward already and she totally just wants to be friends!

Yeah, being rejected would SUCK, I'm only forward in texting or messaging really, it's definitely more scary in real time.

i've been rejected tons of times after a while it doesn't bother you so much. don't take it personally, doesn't mean that you aren't awesome it's just that the other person doesnt want to date you and that could be because of so many reasons.

i'm really shy when it comes to that kinda stuff as well! always looking away when they give me that kinda look.... maybe it's good though because it helps me take things more slowly, rather than getting physical right away. and strawberry, i think chances are good that these ladies really want to make out with you too. if you want it, do it! jumping in is what dating is all about, right?

Ok, so for the longest I've been scared of identifying as "official" with the special lady friend. I was just not ready, and took it reaaaaaalllly slow. But I'm ready to turn off the OKC. Well I guess I was ready for that weeks ago. But i've also gotten like 3 messages in the last few weeks. aaaaaaaack. She (and random other people reading the situation) has called me her gf and I got a little weirded out but I think I've accepted it. For some reason the semantics involved with feeling like another person might have expectations of me of whatever. I guess I just want to be better at keeping my own identity if I'm involved with someone, so actually starting this way has probably been pretty good. Anyway, I'm pretty dern smitten and its going well except for the 2hrs away thing, and the fact that its caused some tension between the roommie and I (mostly I didn't get an ok for the amt of time she visited because I don't ever see my roommate and we used to be friends but she doesn't even make eye contact anymore so I figured she'd be in her room not leaving whether it was me or me and another person, but apparently I was wrong. but that's for another thread). Its kinda weird though, since its only been like 7 months since my last break up, usually its faaaaar longer in between relationships. I have been at once guarded but less bitter than other times, so I don't know.

But yay! OKC worked again, so far. But I guess its only been 3 months since we got a bit more for reals, even though our first date was the end of July, and she wanted to go camping and stuff back then and I was not ready. But she was patient and I came around :)

Guys, as I said I think I made it relatively clear that I have a super crush on that girl I've gone on two dates with right before we parted ways, aaaand she hasn't texted me since then. So, cool. Ugh. She's so cute and smart and funny!

Strawberryrock, I think you are adorable, and thats true. So likely she HAS to think you are, right?

I have not because I was the one who made it clear I liked her so I think if she liked me too she would text me first!

I'll probably text her today just to see but my hopes are not high.

Ok guys, I texted her about how Ke$ha is apparently something other than straight because we both love Ke$ha (and aren't straight).
