it's just funny cause I'm pretty sure that if they had cracked open a baby name book they would have discovered that Ryan was a pretty popular name in 87 and 88 as well, and didn't just explode randomly in 89

Yeah for the last 4 or 5 years maybe but amongst adults they probably didn't know any Ryans.

Baby book?! Psssh I'm cracking open ASOIAF and picking randomly.

actually if I have a daughter I want her name to be Lilah or a variant of that. I don't know why, but I have always just felt like that is the name of my daughter

I know the moves I'm supposed to make. And I know the board. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. And I've started to focus out beyond the edge of the board. On a bigger game. The sound the wind makes through the vines. The sentience of animals. What we fear in the dark and what lies beyond the darkness. I'm talking about seeing beyond fear. About looking at the world with love.

a woman who I went to school with but didn't really know randomly facebook messaged me the other day because I had posted a youtube video of this really obscure americana band she likes. I was all like I've never met someone who knows who they are! etc etc. we messaged back and forth a few times. said band is in town in a few weeks. is it weird if I ask her to come with me?

I would say my dignity or self-esteem but hey, looks like those things are on vacation. Should I just ask her or should I pull the, "I have two tickets but my friend can't go"?

rbg, i say meet her, see how things roll, and if you seem to like each other, just pop the question naturally. one thing i've learned in my very inexperienced love life, is that you can overanalyze all you like. at the end of the day, if the girl likes you, she'll make it easy for you. and if she doesn't, she will just say no anyway.

Relax. Just ask her if she'd like to go with you. She can read into it however she likes.

let me tell you guys a story about stinging slap to the face, five red fingers on the cheek kind of rejection.

the other day, feeling lonely and depressed, i went out to eat at a restaurant by myself. (i've always felt terrible when i'd see a stranger sitting alone at a restaurant, and now that i'm on the other side, i know why. it's shitty indeed)
so i'm sitting there, eating a bowl of seafood linguini, and i spot a visually enjoyable female figure to my left, also sitting alone and drinking wine. so i start this self defeating dialogue with myself, and it takes me the whole bowl of pasta to decide that i'm going to be one of those guys and pop and opener on her. so in excruciating insecurity i fake confidence, and go: "...ya know, only losers go to restaurants by themselves."
she actually laughed, pretty wholeheartedly! so we go on the usual "what brings you to town" (she's also a foreigner) et cetera. and after a bit i say, "so, would you like to go get some coffee sometimes or something?"
i thought i nailed it, man! so casual. certain humans of the darker variety would even assert it "smoooooooth".
but she's like, "probably not". somehow the "probably" made it even harsher.
so then i told her "cool. have a nice evening then". and sat there for like two more minutes to prove a point that she won't make me escape in shame. and then i escaped in total shame, though i made sure i walked out looking confident. and then i went home and cried underneath my bed.

tehbolly out, i'll die alone.

I once shouted to a random girl at a ski lodge "Can I eat you out?!"

She said no. Middle school was the best except when it wasn't.

This is a girl I went to school with who I met a few times years ago. She's super friendly and extroverted so that does make it easier, and she always likes my statuses. Pulling out the do you want to see this show with me thing makes sense because she specifically messaged me about this band. I was thinking this would be a better way to ask her out than to just ask her out for coffee or something because the pretense of going to a show we are mutually interested in is there, so it doesn't have to be a "date" if she agrees but then isn't into it once we start hanging out. I dunno. I seriously don't know how I have been as successful with the opposite sex as I have been considering how bad my anxiety is. I have never received a yes by asking a girl out like this, ever. Every woman I have ever been involved with was someone who I got to know in a social setting and then pursued me.

I am really restricted by this intense fear I have of being perceived by women as being creepy or making unwanted advances. It's SO hard for me to just go up to someone I don't know because I will just torture myself afterwards with what a weird loser she probably thinks I am and how uncomfortable I probably made her with my unwelcome affections

I never go to places alone, but I'm starting to consider it. I mean, I never see movies because I don't have anybody to see movies with. In fact, I always kind of resent my sister when she asks me "have you seen [movie X] yet?" I'm like, why would you even ask me that? You know the answer already. Of course fucking not. Who the fuck would I see it with? I mean, I don't actually say that, because it would be pretty psycho to go nuts on somebody just because they politely asked me if I saw a movie, but my internal monologue is essentially "REEEEEEEE!"


I'm starting to consider just going to the cinema alone now, though. I mean, am I actually not going to watch new movies ever? Seriously, the last time I was in a movie theater was two or three years ago, and that's because I tagged along with my sister and her boyfriend. If there're movies I wanna see, yeah, may as well just go see them.

Eating at an actual sit-down restaurant that isn't just a fast food place alone is pretty weird though, sorry.

As for your story, it sounds like you were pretty smooth. It just didn't work because it just didn't work. I mean, it's not like doing everything right and being charming guarantees you a particular person's interest. Chin up, bro.

Yeah, I've gone to the theater alone a ton of times. Sometimes what I wanna see just doesn't appeal to my friends and loved ones. Or sometimes no one else has the time or the money and I just want to see it regardless.

Only been to one concert alone. I admittedly felt a little weird about being in such a huge crowd without anyone to talk to between bands, but that's just me.
