Chelsea- Glad to hear you’ve found a good guy. It sounds like things are going great. Congratulations, I’m so happy for you. :] Hope things continue to go well for you.
Genny- Awww hon, what happened with Woody? Do I need to kick him where it hurts? I’ll do it, I swear!
Psugar- I think he likes you, personally. You never know. Some of the best relationships start off as being good friends. I say go for it, girl. Make a move. Try suggesting going to a movie. Guys seem to like it when a girl makes the first move. Good luck. :]
Goymer- I’m sorry about that. Just keep in mind that you’ve got plenty of time for love. Don’t worry about it. You’ve still got so much ahead, and there’s no need to rush into things. Most times you won’t find the one you’re meant to be with that young anyway. Like the first person you see isn’t always going to be the right person. A lot of times someone that comes later down the road is who is right. So no worries, like I said, there’s plenty of time for all that. :]
Derek- I’m so sorry to hear that. It was definitely out of line for her to tell Connor that you like her. Very tense and sensitive situation. Try your best to be careful and think before you act or say anything. I know it’s already out about you liking her, but even so, being careful about that kind of thing is probably for the best. Don’t let them know it bothers you. That just makes things worse a lot of times. Stay strong. Hope I’ve helped some.
Jenn- Wow, pretty intense, huh? Definitely sounds like something is going on on his part. I don’t know what to say about that except do whatever you feel is right. I’m so sorry about your grandma. You and she and the rest of your family are in my thoughts/prayers.
Nightvision- Don’t be so hard on yourself. *hugs* Always be yourself. If they don’t like it, that’s their problem, and they don’t deserve you anyway. You’ll find someone. It just takes some time. Who knows? Maybe it’ll be sooner than you think. :]
Xhope- Hey, welcome to the Dating thread. I’m Chelsea, pronounced Chel-see-uh. :] I’m so sorry that you’ve had to go through all that. *hugs* You sound like you’re such a strong person. Keep it up. Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone. Not all guys are like that. Being honest/open is always a good thing. Guys can be great friends, and who knows? Something can develop from there. Just start talking a little more. Ask about their own interests and see what you have in common. Good luck. Hope I’ve helped some. :]
Sorry if my advice sucks, and if I’ve been a bad friend lately. I hope I’ve helped yall some over the many months, and that I’ve made you smile. I’m going to get better about posting on here.
Update: Decided to give up on Shawn. Glad I did. For one, he could hurt me. Too much an age difference. For another, he’s a loser. Seriously. Last week I heard him leaving voicemails to a bunch of people. One in particular, it went something like this: “Hey Laceygirl. I just wanted to call and check up on you because you’re my best friend and I wanted to see how you were doing because you’re my best friend… best friend *says x92348349438430340813 more times*.” I swear I’ve never heard a guy do that before. Such a loser. I figure he likes her anyway if he has to repeat himself a thousand times that she’s his best friend. Plus his mom always comes over after class and helps him with school work. Every school day he has. That’s also pretty weird. He’s too old for that. Anyways. Today I gave out Christmas cards to my friends and I put on his (besides Merry Christmas/Happy New Year) “Great having class with you. Hope to see you next semester. Keep in touch *put number there*.” I’m such an idiot for giving him my number. I want nothing to do with him, so I don’t know why I put that. But whatever.
I like a guy in my Lit class. He sits behind me so he’s in my group a lot. I’ve talked to him a good amount of times. A few weeks ago everyone had presentations on the course paper. He was obviously nervous but he worked it out and got better. I told him good job and he was still nervous and kind of laughed and said, Thanks. After the next class the teacher gave the grades back. I couldn’t ask him about it because I had to stay after with a group for a project we had just been assigned, but I caught him later and asked him what he got. He said an 87.
Me: Awesome. *High 5*
Him: *hands full, does fist bump and I high five his fist for some stupid reason, and then I laugh and we grinned at each other and he looked at me one last time before he went in to class.*
After that I tried to show interest and after a while I was afraid I would scare him off so I stopped trying. Because I don’t know what’s too much and what’s enough. I gave a Christmas card to him on Monday and said “You have a great sense of humor and you always make me laugh. Hope to see you next semester.” When I gave it to him I said, Merry Christmas, *insert his name here.* He said thank you, sounding surprised and pleased at the same time. When we had class again on Wednesday and I walked in, he smiled at me really nicely. I take it he liked his card. Haha. I saw him as I was walking down the hallway today and waved and smiled. He smiled back and said, “Hey” softly and nicely, and dare I say it, haha- happily- at the same time.
Right now I’m focusing on school work (there’s a LOT of it; next Friday is when my finals start, then the rest are Monday and Wednesday, then I’m done for the semester. Yay!!!!!) and getting things done. I’m doing the best I can not to fret over this dating stuff anymore. So basically I’m just letting whatever happens happen. I’m content for the most part.
Holy crap this was long haha. Sorry!
