oh boy...

well, things don't go so well for me usually love-wise (hah!) but recently i've been feeling a lot more confident, and its been many moons since The Break-up (first love - ain't it tragic?) so i decided to accept the offer of a date. And then i accepted another one.

One girl - she's a quiet, oh so very quiet, sweet, but quite boring, pleasant but quite dull kind of person. We have a 'history' and i thought maybe i could find that again. date went awfully. for two hours she said nothing. NOTHING!! i was forced to ramble on at great length which usually i do anyway, but i felt awkward and strange talking sooo much to fill in the silences...

Anyways, i also said yes to this other girl who i've liked for ages, she's strange and has an obsession with the word 'egg'. she's my kind of person.

BUT. the first girl (lets call her Emma, as thats her name) found out about the second girl (Steph) and told her that she (Emma) was dating me (Spoongirl). The date with Steph got 'postponed'.

Is it right for her (Emma) to assume girlfriendship when we've only had the one date? Should i not have said yes to Steph? What can i do now to patch things up with Steph? (Who, by the way i really do like)

Argh!! See, this is why i usually date guys, they are so much less complicated... Well, replace 'complicated' with 'bitched-up jealous drama queens', and that sounds better...

love from the tin, Spoongirl [Wink]

Hey DMan, what about Spungo's 10 foot pole?

Ok, semi-serious discussion mode ON

based on my own knowledge of teenage female-female relationships, I have the following advice to offer.....

um.....

lets see.....

do I know anything about this topic ?

er... no.

has that ever stopped me in the past?

well ... no.

Will it stop me this time?

um .... yes. (except for all of the above, of course)

Well, assuming a teenage female-female courtship follows the same basic rules as a male-female courtship...no, one date does not equal a relationship.

I agree with Xanithine. One date does not equal a relationship.

<mindless_drivel>The thing with guys is that they tend to have a lot simpler minds, we're mostly single-threaded, that means one op at a time. Easier to debug... [Wink]

I reckon God developed multi-threading between creating Adam and Eve...

Ahem, that's "Xanthine" - that's pretty much the first time I've ever seen it misspelled that way.

And no, I probably wouldn't deem it a relationship after a first date, but if it was one with the intent for another, it might seem a little off to just put her aside and go after another person. It also really depends on how that first date went - assuming it was a totally casual thing, then it was just a nice evening/time spent between 2 people, and calling that a relationship is a pretty sketchy thing. If, OTOH, it was a bit more than that (and I'm not going *there*, particularly given these circumstances), then there might be room for misunderstanding. You probably have to Emma now how you feel about her either way - whether you want to be friends, or don't really care to see her anymore. Then, go out with Steph - or don't. Do whatever you see fit.

i didn't really put her aside, but i was really caught up with the thing of two girls asking me out, that i sort of got swept away.

i don't think emma should have reacted that way. i'm glad people are saying she shouldn't have viewed it as a relationship, i felt sort of guilty, but i also feel annoyed, and as i'm an angry kind of person i'm going with annoyed.

if two people asked you out and you wanted to see if there was anything left with one, but you really like the other, what would you do? did i do the wrong thing?

Yeah, I definitely can't offer advice here - I think I'd remember if two girls asked me out at/or around the same time :-P.

TFD: Forget a dose, did we?
Oh well, lest I be the pot calling the kettle black, I woke up with a rather strange dream about IPC b/t my alarm clocks or something...

argh! i had a really weird dream about tiny little moles and they all had little spades and they were going to start an insect war, and provoke all the insects into hating humans and then i was the only human left, and i was with my penguin and they nearly pushed us to the edge of the cliff and then i fell in and woke up on a desert island which was run by Pikachus and the king Pikachu said we should try to get some magical beans, like jack, and so we talked to the wise owl who gave us some beans and then we grew a beanstalk which led to the ice tower, and the giant there was scary and tried to sell me carpets and then i ran away and fell through some cloud.

Um, y'know that thing called a telephone? Looks like a handle with a cord sticking out the ass? Yes, that. Pick it up, punch in the appropriate number, and ask for Steph.

i don't have her number... and the problem of asking for it lies in the gaggle of friends that she has surrounding her!

and she's sort of ignoring me now anyway...

Hmm...let's see what I might find wrong with this:
a. I simply do what Xanthine said:
Pick it up, punch in the appropriate number, and ask for
b....my girlfriend...
c...and...we're both straight...
Sorry, I guess I really can't help out here [Wink] .

Oh, but let me add this: Why don't you just find a simple reason why you need her number - homework or some such?

spungo: Great idea, let us know how that worked out for you [Wink] . [On second thought...don't.]

Funny you should say that - on the night we met she told she 'just wanted to get laid'. So, a month later, with the last whispers of vitality draining from her pale limbs, I said to her: "Well, you're fscked now, ain't ya?" [Smile]

/me has a premonition of one day seeing Spungo on the evening news, being led away in leg-irons and tight-fitting leather hood (a-la Hannibal Lecter) and thinking "What, so he wasn't kidding all this time?"
