I was just about to discover the cure for death, but my wife asked me to take out the trash.



Selam

Last time a woman asked me to take out the trash



Needless to say, I was pretty lonely that night.

It's hard to miss, assuming you are in the US. But I too, having been paying little attention to the calendar in quite a bit,  I first thought it was gonna be on Tuesday. One lady though, enlightened me.

At this point, I just want to manage exercise soreness. Conditioning my liver for when I reach drinking age is probably worthwhile though.

Okay, so what do you do when you are at the store and you see a very pretty woman and you can't help but keep taking quick glances at her, and you want to talk to her, except, you don't know how to without looking weird, and she catches you glancing at her and knows you are attracted to her?

Telling you that at 16 unless she's vey close to your age I mean 17 or under you'd. Still end up looking weird if you tried. But it gets better as you get older.

If you say anything (even hello), I'm pretty sure if she's not within 3.6 months of you in age she'll think you a creep and report you to security. True story bro.

I was at the electronics store earlier this evening, and I saw this beautiful Latina of about 22-24 years old and I could help but keep looking and looking at her when she wasn't watching. And finally at the end, she caught me, and I just smiled and then walked away real fast feeling odd.

I'm feeling homesick. It's just that I don't know to where I am longing for. I was born in the South, lived my chilhood at the Center, grew up as an adult within the East and now I'm back at South. I wonder to where I should move next in order to feel home.

Now that I wrote that I realized that I am never goin to learn how to use prepositions properly. You English-speaking people should really learn to use cases instead of prepositions.

I would but the city where used to live was too small for me and there aren't that much bigger cities either. Maybe I should move to East Karelia or something.

Success!!! So, I finally got over my social awkwardness around the opposite sex and approached the very beautiful blonde girl after Church whom I've had my eye on for quite a while. Sat next to her during coffee hour, shot the breeze, made her laugh, went to Church-school together with her, then romantically walked together outside and told her that she was very pretty before we departed. Next week I'm going to ask for her phone number.

No. If you're ever looking to screw up a relationship with a crush though, I've got ample experience there. Just try to relax a bit I suppose. And check out this thread.

Any advice to not screw this up? Because let's face it; chances are I'm going to have a very difficult time finding another marriagable Orthodox female my age. I have to hold onto this one.

Hope to God that she doesn't see this post?
