... ok, I guess 30 isn't that old.

I'm so mean.

Here, hold my colostomy bag while I beat you over the head with my walker, whippersnapper.

God, I love the smell of Geritol in the morning. It smells like ... victory!

I can't believe we're on the second page and no-one has offered that timeless bit of advice....

Gosh you are so right.

Capn vic would be so disgusted.

Although it came up in another thread and led to a totally ahhhhhh enlightening(if slightly off topic)conversation.

Perhaps it would be safer to just skip it? [Wink]

What, you're not interested in engaging in such piercing conversation again? Has that desire been nipped in the bud? [Wink]

Thanks for all the advice you guys!! Everybody is so hilarious!! =) I think I'm such an old fashioned girl and I'm used to the guy making the first move, but this time around I don't have much choice!! I'm just afraid I have read him wrong and he doesn't even like me at all that way (total embarrasment factor for me).

He asked me yesterday to help him find a winter jacket so I think I'll use that and go from there =) It's kinda nerve racking for me though! I haven't felt like this since highschool!! I guess it doesn't help that I've been in a relationship for the last 7 years of my life.

He wants you to help pick out clothes?

Girl just relax and enjoy and see what happens.

If he is asking for your help in the clothing area I would just have fun with the shopping and know that another date will come out of it. just watch for an opportunity to ask/

Personally, that sounds like way too much cash to blow in the efforts of picking somebody up. Plus, maybe it's me, but I hate showing weakness or ignorance of a subject when I'm still getting to know somebody.

My advice? Ask him out or at very least tell him how you feel. If he says no, well, Peebs and her riding crop sound wicked hot...turn your attention elsewhere. [Big Grin]

Suggest your availability for said jacket shopping is Saturday morning. After he obtains said jacket, suggest going to lunch because you're hungry. Go dutch unless he really insists on paying, but you dont pay for both... although if he pays you could then pay the tip.

Next date is when he asks, not you.

Or you could make it an evening shopping trip and suggest a casual dinner.

Hey,

I noticed people said that a guy gets nervous around people they like. I find I am doing some of the same things with this girl I like.

We chat often via Gmail, and email. I sit next to her in the 2 classes we have together. But when the class is over I disappear into thin air.

For me it's a mix of mostly rejection type feelings and fear of the unknown. I have NEVER had a girlfriend and I'm almost 23.

She likes the same things I like, she can program Java blindfolded, and has a couple of Linux PCs on her home network. She's envious of my CISCO router, and my Laser printer. She wanted to know more about CISCO equipment. She's taking the same degree as me which is great.

I told her about a Wired article I had read about a condition she has, and she seemed interested. I dug up a link on a random Google Search and sent it to her.

I say ask him out for coffee, don't pressure him too much, he may be nervous, etc. When I went to see 40 Year Old Virgin in the movies, it kind of reminded me of myself in 20 years or so.

Don't be afraid of rejection, just go for it, or you'll never know how he really felt about you. I say it's better to know about something and remove all doubt then be left in the dark.

In my life, I want to ask this girl out, but I am afraid of losing a good friend. Plus it leads to akward feelings. Anyone know of any Linux expo coming to NYC [Wink] .... I wish one would come my way, that way I could invite her somewhere where the pressure is off the both of us, and we can just relax and enjoy our time together.

There comes a point in your life, where like the Rev. Flake told us at my college graduation "Execute". Just do it and find out for sure.


P.S. I should take my own advice [Wink]

UPDATE!!!

Thanks for all the advice guys! It sorta gave me the push to actually do something about the situation.

He seems to like the jacket I picked out for him. As for our status....

1 "date" so far--asked him out after work one day after I requested a ride home and he agreed!! We went for dinner the next day, and aftewards walked around a quiet mall where the restaurant was. It went well and it was AMAZING!! Just talked and stuff, but it was nice. The reason it is a "date" in quotations is because I asked him in a casual manner to "hang out" but he asked later whether it was considered a "date". I was so flustered and taken aback that I told him that I merely just enjoyed his company (Am I sending confusing signals here or what?)

Was this question a sign that of his intentions? We agreed to have lunch together again the next day. We've become a LOT closer after all this, but everything is still up in the air because we both seem to nervous to discuss our feelings towards each other.

He's even taken it upon himself to inform the office how he's obligated to now have lunch with his "wife". Is this immature act an attempt to let me know he's not taking this whole "dating" thing seriously? Or is it just some nervous knee-jerk reaction to all that his happening? I can't tell what his motivations are.

Nonetheless we have even made plans to go to Europe together (backpacking)! It's SO crazy!!! I don't even know what to think right now. Is he into me or is he not?? Do I stay patient and drag this whole charade on or do I attempt to have a talk about our "feelings", which may possibly scare him away and make things even more akwaard (can things get more akwaard?).

Hey girlygirl,

It's good to hear that things are going great with your geek. It sounds like he's really into you. Wow you have plans to travel together already. Sounds serious.

If you find a time when it feels right to tell him how you feel, go for it. The risk that you always take is that he doesn't yet feel the same about you. You already know that he's pretty shy so he might be waiting for you to make the first move again.

I'm going to say stop overthinking and go out with him a few more times and see what happens. You said in your original post that your friends say he's shy and reverts back to acting like a 9 year old around you. Now he's joking about you being his wife. Stop thinking of that as a charade and consider meeting him halfway. He obviously likes you and his inner child wants your inner child to come out and play. Don't force him to do his chores and eat brussels sprouts instead.

You made a good poing Steen! I think I've been taking this whole thing too seriously. I have to "play along" more and just "enjoy the ride" =)

I'm usually very outgoing, but around him I just feel so nervous! I haven't such an intense case of "butterflies" since I was in highschool, and I'm now 25! I never had to do so much work before--but what do you expect in a situation like this right?

At the same time I'm battling all the criticism from my friends. "Are you sure you want to be his FIRST gf? and "you guys are moving too fast". Everything just feels so right though, and for once I want to trust my instinct.

Wow oh Wow! I did a lil search for how to attact a geek and I got TONS of relevant info in all the forums!

Funny how sometimes in life you think you're alone, but you find out that so many other people are like you! I would describe myself as an average girl who is CRAZY about intelligent, nice guys, prefarably ones who like to wear polo shirts/shirts& ties(aka a "geek" to many). I just seem to attract all the wrong men--the typical "bad boys"--and it seems like my life long persuit of something meaningful with a wonderful geek is so difficult!

They don't seem to go for girls like me =( I was once lucky enough to catch this geek's attention (magic player/trekkie), but he was a bit much for me. I just hope this works out!!

He probably does like you. I've got a similar problem. I am very shy and if I do see someone I would like to date, I am usually too afraid to say anything to her. I might throw out the occasional "Hi", but I have trouble doing more than that. The problem is even worse if there are other people around. Do you find him hanging around you or using flimsy excuses to come over by your desk? If so, he's probably hoping for an opportunity to talk to you, but he may be having trouble.

We've got a new girl at work that I've been really wanting to talk to for the past 2 weeks. I've only had a few brief conversations with her, but whenever I get the chance to say more, I always end up panicking and making a hasty exit.
