    Damn, this feels weird. Asking a bunch 'o people on the internet for lovelife advice and strange things like such!

    So there's this girl and I kinda like her, I have no idea what she thinks about me. Fortunately I have not received a restraining order yet so she can't hate me right? And I'm probably seeing her on Friday, a second date, for a lovely hike up a nearby mountain, mini-incline!

    The other day while smsing her I told her soemthing along the lines of "I can't wait for Friday" and she repled:
    You hold me in too high esteem. Seriously. Either that or your life is completely devoid of excitement.

    This confuses me in a wasy that only women can. Is it a bad thing, am I doomed for the rest of my life. Please people, assist me ;)

    LOL!! Little comments like that should only ever be made face to face. That could mean any number of things, but I think it's safe to assume she's joking with you :p

    I mean, did she say she wasn't going? NO!!

    She may be a trifle worried by your expectations, but it sounds to me like you're in there. :)

    Maybe it was just sarcasm, maybe I'm paranoid. I haven't slept so well. I feel slightly relieved. I'l find out for sure on Friday. Until then I must just grin and bears it.

    Oh and it surprises me that I get more replies to threads on my personal life than I get with threads on my iMac's unfortunate existance:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=259785

    It sounded like self-depreciating humor but a word of warning. It sounds like you might be getting too clingy, too fast, and these could be words of warning to lighten up on the relationship thus far. It's only a second date...

    It does sound like a bit of a warning from her not to be clingy, and maybe a test to show that you actually have a life. I'd make it a point on or before your date (a hike is a good idea, BTW) to show/hint to her that you do have a lot of things going on in your life, as many girls tend to want to be at the top of a long list of priorities, not at the top of a short list. Just be subtle about it! :cool:

    Thats a GREAT idea, I better find some things to say/make up because now, during the holidays, I've been @ home playing FEAR and Need for Speed all day long :p

    I suggest taking her out to a sushi restaurant. That solves everything IMHO. :cool:

    I don't remember there being that many sushi bars in ZA. There was one on Sea Point Road in Cape Town, but that was about it.

    I say if you can just say that to a girl, and she still wants to be with you, then she's a keeper. :)

    oooh, she sounds a little odd IMHO. I always say stuff like that to my girlfriend and she loves it.

    But, if she gets the impression you don't have a life, just show up late, that always works for me. The old play-hard-to-get tactics.;)

    There are! Went to one today with my mom, *gag* I hate sushi! Strangely enough the sushi bar was called "Cape Town Fish Market" so there!

    ^Why does she sound odd, she's just got a great vocabulary! And as before, she's probably being sarcastic-I hope. The actual sentence was: "The anticipation is going to kill me" she probably assumued the anticipation of um, meeting her and not the anticipation of the overall meeting thing!

    Guess I will arrive late, keep her on edge!

    Yeah, gaming chicks! She's not much into computers so that might provide quite a bit of entertainment.

    Nah, the ones which are keepers are when she goes 'You coming round 2nite?' and you go 'Nah, gonna sit at home on CoD3' and she goes 'Fair Enough'

    :D

    Never date a woman who can't/won't accept compliments.

    You may want to consider taking a Geiger counter with you if you go the Sushi route.:)

    Thnks again for all the input people!

    I guess the similarities are there, but I still need to really get to know her.


    ROFD, that sounds pretty sick! I'm not such a hardcore gamer and would cringe in fear of that happening!

    Sometimes over-complimenting people can also be bad. I think that's what I've been doing:(

    Geiger counter, at a sushi bar? What kind of sushi places do you go to!?

    I'll post my 'progress' on Friday after the big day is over and I have settled!

    Litvinenko was probably poisoned in a London Sushi bar.

    They are the new "in" places for exchanging radioactive samples. Hadn't you heard?

    That's my rules of engagement also. There's too many fish in the sea to hook up with one with that type of character flaw that quickly.

    But, what do I know - I've been married for 25 years and can barely remember dating.
