Mythological Stranger's Blog

Once More into the Wind.
Well I figured that since pretty much no one reads this blog, aside from 1 or 2 friends, it would be a safe place to vent a little to try to get a couple of things off my mind.

Basically I'm nervous as *tries to think up a clever analogy.... fails.* hell let's just say I'm really really nervous and it's just no damned fun. I'm nervous because I have to ask this girl from my Psychology class out on Valentines day (I "have" to because I decided if I couldn't do it then, I probably never could) and that's LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY now. Lol. I sincerely hope that the female readers of this blog (all 2-3 of you) can understand how much mental stress the prospect of asking a woman out puts on a guy. Its down-right scarey to put oneself out there like that, to be perfectly honest.

Especially when there's the possibility of them pulling the "friend" card. I loathe and despise the term "just be friends". To that end, I'm already "friends" with her, and frankly I want more out of the relationship, so I'm honestly not sure if her pulling the "friends" card would depress me, or just piss me off. I'm sure that wouldn't help the situation, but that's just how much I hate the "friends" card (if my bitterness doesn't give me away; I've had that "card" used on me acouple of times before and it SUCKED)

Oh well..... nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

I'll put up a post on Velentines Day one way or the other and let you curious people know how it went.


"To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can."
~Og Mandino
The "let's just be friends" card is an annoying one, but it's the girl's way of saying "I'm flattered and I don't hate you, but I'm just not interested in dating you." It's hard to actually say all of that, and as scary as it is for a man to ask out a woman, it's just as hard for the woman (if she's uninterested) to let the man down gently.
Good luck. I hope it goes well for you.
Hey Eric,

Remember me?

Anyway, I'm sure she'll turn you down you immature stranger.

Heh Heh, just kidding.

Let's just be friends you and me though? What do you say?

Oh, I read your blog everyday, even though it sucks.

Your enemy,
"Just friends" is how my husband and I started out 15 years ago. If you think she's really worth it, be patient and persistent.
ok so I know who the 15 year old is.... but who the hells the anonymose one?
You quote from Og, yet you're against gay people? Oxymoron.
You post comments on a two month old entry?

Being educated enough to know a appropriate quote for a given situation does not mean I have to agree with someone's choice of lifestyle. That's the miracle of having the freedom to express ourselves. And I hardly see why I need to defend my opinions about something to you. Did I ever ask you to defend yours? No. I stated that I disagreed with it, and that is well within my rights to do.

If you don't like my opinions, or the fact that I quote gay people while disagreeing with their lifestyles (look out... Elton John may be next) I invite you to get the hell off my blog. Thanks.
