What can you do if you've got an unwanted infatuation with someone?
See folks, I'm a coward. I have had countless perfect opportunities to talk to this girl but never have. Now I realize the ship has sailed as I'll never see her again after Saturday and I'm just trying to stop hating myself.
So if orthonorm wants to actually make a post in this thread conducive to its original purpose and give advice on how to break the ice and keep a conversation going and such I'd be open to it.
William, look at these posts I quickly grabbed.
I am not sure how you sound outside the forum but look these words you write.
Quote 1: Opened ended cul-de-sac of discussion. Deal with the figure of speech.
Quote 2: Hyperbolic self loathing and over the top fatalism.
Quote 3: Passive aggression.
Now, you are not a complete stranger to me. You've PMd me a little but more importantly I've read some of your posts.
Now I know some of us affect a particular online personae and offline personae. Most people just can't. They are what they are pretty much in some pedestrian sense.
Not everyone can be the Indira's Web of absolute multi-faceted interest that is orthonorm; however, frankly you could work a little a bit being a bit more interesting and less hostile and passive aggressive.
So let's talk specifics. If you do not presently have a particular romantic interest in mind, then we can work with the ship which passed in daylight while you sat forlorn on the shore.
So what specifically kept you from being able to approach the current woman you are interested in or the prior woman? If you are able to approach them, why can't you carry on a conversation?
Be specific. If you don't reply, then I will move onto to more general tales of wisdom or help That.
Not everyone wants to have their person put on display, even in this narcissistic world, so I understand. But God and the Devil are in the details.
I might bump a few relavent prior posts to give context.
