Wow man I’m so sorry.

I never said you couldn’t have both, I just said not to let one get more important than the other.

My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperial. Can you say the same?

The universe handed me a golden opportunity, and I blew it.

So I went to a career fair in a school field trip. Everyone had split up to go look around, and we would all meet up in about an hour and a half.

Now absolutely none of the booths there interested me, so I spent my time wondering around and taking note of interesting things I saw. Unique looking people, strange things at booths, stuff like that.

But when I’m walking through the engineering section I pass this girl. She was really tall, had pale skin, long curly bright orange hair, and freckles. (And if I’m being honest she was really cute) I’m thinking she was probably Irish.

Anyway the biggest thing that sticks out to me is that she was frighteningly familiar. I passed by her once or twice before I work up the courage to talk to her.

I walk up to her, get her attention, and ask if I knew her from anywhere. She asks me a few questions about what school I’m from and all that, and that’s about it. There was no previous relation. So I think “Alright then. Guess that’s that.” And walk off.

A few minutes later I realize I could have asked what school she was from, or better I should have asked her what her name was.

I spent at least an hour or so running around the massive convention hall looking to find her again. But to no avail.

I was given golden opportunity, and squandered it all.

Don’t beat yourself up anymore man. It’s time to move on. There’s a thousand other people out there, one of which is yourself.
Recently I’ve stopped thinking about trying to impress others, and am just working on myself for now. Sharpening my mind, reading, working out more.

Don’t fret.
If you are meant to have a girlfriend, then in time, you will get a girlfriend.
That doesn’t mean stop looking, it merely means to be yourself and improve yourself, and then when the time is right, boom!
Girlfriend.

Well this is an interesting topic…are you ready to hear the sad tales of Michael The Light Bringer?

If you do let me know because I have quite the story…but just short said, I don’t have luck around girls when it comes down for romantic relationships… though I was that close but…let’s say faith or something negative happened that it blew it all up!

Hit us with it. Even if we can’t give any feedback or suggestions on your situation, I always found it to be kind of liberating and eye opening to write things out. As you probably can notice from the post I made earlier in this topic.

Yes, those were some very wise words, my friend.

Alright, this happened a while ago, Valentines to be precise. I had known one girl for about four years. We’d become really close freinds. Although, I think she tried to have a “We are just friends” talk a while back, although it was right before she went on a trip and started classes away and phrased it more like “We’re friends now, right?” Leaving it extremely open ended. Well, on Valentines, I found out she’s been dating another friend of mine for a month or so. Wow, that was rough.

Jokes aside, I know what that can feel like. Though I can also say it isn’t nearly as bad as actually being cheated on. Something I also have experience with.

I know, thankfully she was a good enough person to never pursue anything with me only switch later. We’re still friends, but honestly, I’m still a little ticked off.

Yeah. Personally I don’t like it when someone is dishonest, even if they’re trying to break a dificult subject gently. It’s better to be honest upfront and have the sting that comes with that, rather than be lead on by a mistruth that hurts even more in the end.

I said the exact same thing to her.

And what did she say back?

That that’s what she would have done.

It was a mutual dumping

So, um…
Prom is coming up in our school in a little over a month, and there’s this girl. I…well, honestly I’m not sure how I feel about her, but I know it’s somewhere between platonic and romantic attraction. And I’m going to try and ask her to prom. Assuming I don’t chicken out.

Wish me luck.

Good luck!
Hope it goes well.

To elaborate on my problem, she messaged me saying a few reasons to break up that I disagreed with, but I either didn’t have much of a good argument against it or couldn’t share the argument for undisclosed reasons, and I accepted it. We’re still friends but I’m a little on and off bummed about it. I honestly thought we were perfect for each other.
