She wants to have sex with you and all you can think about is studying.

Dude, if she wanted to have sex she'd be sending signals. Seriously, you know nothing about women.

Dude, if she wanted to have sex she'd be sending signals. Seriously, you know nothing about women.
Ok, from someone who actually has been pretty successful with women and am currently married happily let me give you some advice.

Firstly, she's interested. Not with sex per se, but with you. Touching (also laughing and slapping your arm, touching your knee for a second while talking to you, etc) is signs of comfortability. If she was not interested at all with you (friends or otherwise) she would not firstly, call it a "date" nor be at your house. She would choose a neutral place. She also would most assuredly not be the one to suggest your place.

Secondly, she finds you disarming and easy to talk to. She would not come over so late and mentioning staying up late if she found you to be a tool.

Now, what to do. I would start by sitting diagonal until such time that sitting next to her is acceptable. Such as reading something she is reading or she asks you to "come here and take a look at this", etc. I would also find out what she likes for a snack. if she likes salad whip up something cheap and easy "in case she gets hungry". Coffee wouldn't hurt either. I wouldn't assume anything. Get to know each other. Talk a bit. Take a break from studying for 20 mins or so (salad and coffee or sammiches, or whatever) and let her talk. Ask her stuff like how she chose the school, what she plans to do after graduating, etc. Keep it light and let her dictate the pace. Her comfortability is paramount.

I will say you have one thing going in your favor. She at least finds you interesting. Where it leads (if you want it to lead anywhere) is really up to HER.....not you Smiley

So, if she ever falls in and you pull her out you might get a chance to land her.  There, your poor word choices have now been justified.

You could always end the schism and hopefully increase the availability of kosher women. That would be a noble worthwhile task.

I dated one once. If I picked my church based only on the one person that I personally knew with the most personal holiness, I would have to be Catholic because of her.

Thanks for the advice, especially primuspilus, but it was for naught!  Sad

I was at school today and I saw someone in the lounge that I recognized from my sociology class, so I said hello. We got to talking and she was really afraid of the test coming up and was probably going to withdraw from the course. I obviously didn't want to see that happen to anyone, so I invited her to the study sessions at my place. She didn't seem to want to come, but when I told her about Sarah being there as well she seemed a bit more at ease and agreed to come. Well, she got there about 7:30, and we started studying a bit. Then Sarah got there maybe 15 minutes later, and it all went downhill from there. Sarah walks into the living room and then just stopped, and got mad for some reason. "What the heck is this?" she asked, only she didn't say "heck".  I tried to explain why Desiree was here, but she wouldn't listen. I think the main thing that got Sarah mad is that I said "we could turn it into a threesome". What's the big deal? Three heads are better than one!  She just said something like "I'm not into that you sick frick," only she didn't say "frick". Then she left. Now she won't return my calls or texts.

 Shocked Angry Hello? Then she'd be naked! What are you, crazy? It was hard enough sleeping in the wrong direction last night. I was getting ready to sleep on the couch, cause she was already in bed in the bedroom, and she said something about not minding if I join her. I figured it might be a bit cramped, but it really wasn't. However, I obviously laid in the opposite direction so I wouldn't accidentally touch her inappropriately, and it was hard sleeping "upside down," so to speak. If she's going to be staying over often I'm gonna have to buy an air mattress or something.

If I may also add, I'm getting frustrated with you people and your gutter-minds. Sex a few days after meeting? What are you even talking about? Even the really evil and perverted, like swingers or people from the Ukraine, don't do that. Haven't you ever heard of key parties? This is where swingers have a potluck dinner, and they all throw their keys into one container, and then randomly pull out someone else's keys, and then they talk with that person and decide whether they want to meet for lunch some time to get to know each other. It takes at least a few months, they don't just jump in the sack the first night! I don't know where you people live (probably San Francisco), but around these parts we still have a little thing called modesty and decorum.

I didn't know that in your parts of the country, that you let a woman console you by sleeping in your bed! I should totally move out of San Fransisco, because here, sleeping a guy's bed usually means you have to join in the sexytime.

Asteriktos, don't let these wicked people lead you astray.  You have the right mindset.  Any floozie who will sleep with you before marriage for any reason other than that you have a gun, is not worth the goats you would have paid to her father as restitution.

My father didn't get goats before my marriage. Did we do something wrong?  Huh Did my husband scam us?!

Oh no.  Goats are just the normal way.  A girl of your caliber was probably worth at least a half dozen camels.  Maybe even a good horse.

 Cry! Does that mean I'm easy?!

Listen, the only advice I've gotten concerning marriage and relationships was when my mother told me, "Don't give away the milk for free" when I started dating my then-boyfriend. Now every time I prepare him coffee or cereal, I charge him $3.00 and he isn't very happy about it. We're seeing a marriage counselor next week.

What about a barbecue sauce recipe? That's what the deal was between me and my wife's dad....

If I may also add, I'm getting frustrated with you people and your gutter-minds. Sex a few days after meeting? What are you even talking about? Even the really evil and perverted, like swingers or people from the Ukraine, don't do that.

Watch it!

What are you intimating about Ukrainians?

I was always told don't buy the cow when the milk is free.  I spent the money I was going to use for the cow on an iPod and a used AK instead.  When I went to the bazaar I found that the milk proprietor's definition of free was different than mine.  He made me marry his ugly daughter for "stealing" the milk, but it all turned out for the best.  She came with a cow.
