I know I said as much at least once before, but I hope you guys stay friends! That means something, seriously.
If we're still cool with each other despite the events, I can't see why we can't. It might be a while before I see her in person, though but when we do I'm sure we'll enjoy seeing each other again.
That's a good question. I've been thinking about trying to hook up with some people to go hiking with this summer. Ought to be an interesting endeavor. :\
I don't think I know anyone who'd be up for hiking but then again, those that I know aren't generally the going somewhere kind. Most they'll be doing is getting drunk and shit at parties.
I seem to remember that, vaguely. That was quite a few years back, right? (Keep in mind that I think '08 users are noobs still.) lol
Yeah, it was in 2009, I think.
I'd consider finding a girl here on NG and actually hooking up with her IRL nothing short of a miracle. That's why I think it so amazing that that's actually happened here, more than once.
After being here for so long, I can be sure that will never happen to me, haha. Still, the internet is a huge place so it's not the end of the world (or rather cyberspace) if you're not going to find someone here.
Ha, maybe I should start playing World of Warcraft? :P
And here I wonder what happened if I took the other path in the fork and got myself addicted to World of Warcraft instead of making flash animations. There was a certain point in my life when I could have been addicted to WoW but I managed to get out of it while I was ahead. Could I have met someone on there just like what happened to my sister? This kind of alternative reality is possible in a parallel universe somewhere. Yes, I'm the kind of fool that believes in sci-fi mumbo jumbo as that. ;D Anything is possible, you know?
It's just neat to meet somebody by chance in the digital world like that, like not on a dating site. I wish it would happen to me, dammit! (I've met some great people here, one of which I may actually meet someday, as we both live in the same state. Unfortunately, there's a dick between his legs.) SO CLOSE! lmao
Speaking of dating sites, I have been looking into them lately. I know I was cynical because it doesn't take much to pretend to be someone but you know what, it doesn't hurt to try. It's kinda like searching for a job on the internet. Chances are most of them are non-existent anyway but either you sit there and do nothing and earn nothing at all as a result OR, you could actually try and approach them and see what happens. The worst that would happen is hearing nothing in return or them simply saying they're not all that interested in you. The latter might be bad to hear but if they know so little about you anyway, it won't be such a huge loss. Just try again and find someone else.
You know, I've always feared that by attempting to talk to women and see if I could ask them out, I'd only be seen as some stalker or a sex predator but if you're gonna advertise yourself on dating websites and you're looking for a partner of whatever gender, clearly there's no stalking there if all you're gonna do is try and talk to them. A recent strong statement to myself is if I don't ask, I simply don't get. I just gotta make these attempts and see if they would be willing to see me. Sure, despite finding them on DATING SITES, I'm not expecting to go on a date straight away but we have to get to know each other first.
What I'd like to do first is talk to them a bit and see how things progress. Generally I'd like to see that we can speak to each other on Facebook for general contacts and Skype to have a video chat somewhere down the line. Video chat is easily the best way to prove that they're legit. When things look really good and we end up agreeing on a time and place to see each other, hopefully we can find a good public place to meet each other. Somewhere at a cafe or something would be most ideal since there'd be people around us. Neither would want to make a mess when others around you can witness the wrong actions. Depending where I may have to go for it, I would have to see about train travels and possibly stay at a hotel somewhere for one night. Money is required, yes but you gotta take some risks and see that it was worth it or not. If you're not gonna come out of your shell, you're not gonna get anywhere in life.
So yeah, online dating shouldn't be all that bad. I may not have much experience with it right now but it can't be all that bad. If I keep looking out, who knows what an amazing individual I can find!
Nah, it's all about the plushies.Draw her in with the plushies, maybe she'll come to love the dragon in time. XP
She seems to want to steal them and then go back home. D:
Ehhhhhhhh....Sorry, I didn't mean that to come of in that way. NG AND THE WI/HT FORUM (especially) WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT BAHAMUT. :O
Well, I may end up making my activity minimal but I'll have to check here every so often.
Hmm, the daily alts thing is something I still need to think whether I want to keep it going or not.I could never deposit for alts the way you always have. (Hell, I can't even deposit for my main account.) I'd say pick an exp. milestone and retire them there -hell, level icons come and go with the redesigns, so it's not like that's a permanent solution.
I keep meaning to retire them at milestones but it's a matter of if I feel like keeping it going now.
Now if only she could start accepting all the compliments that I gave/give to her. We're still on speaking terms over there and even on text so that's a good thing. I did like how she said she likes that she can share her favourite activity with me (that being listening to a CD that she has). Maybe a relationship won't happen with her now but at least there are ways that I can still make her happy.From what I've heard, you've handled the whole situation like a real man, when it would have been so easy to just get angry and lash out, or act like a total jerk. Give yourself props for that. :)
Seriously, I don't even know how I've managed to handle all of this. I thought just having to kiss her would have got me nervous but it didn't. I thought going out on a date would have had me anxious but I wasn't and while I had to deal with a downhill slope of the relationship and had me depressed for some of the time, there has yet to be a time where I've had myself crying. I even kept telling myself, "Don't worry a thing, just cry already. You're only human after all." It's not that I don't have any human emotions because if I didn't, why would I be sad over losing her? Maybe things were gradually going downhill as opposed to a sudden stop so perhaps I slowly dealt with my feelings that way, or maybe I just knew some things had to be done and I had to take my own actions. Even my mum is amazed how I've dealt with everything here and she of all people would have seen all the worst of me on the outside.
Five posts... Only got away because I'm a mod. :P
