Maybe next time you see him you should slip either your email or mobile no saying that it would be great if you could chat a bit more and see what his reaction is. I think sometimes you need to bit the bullet and go for it.
He's met a girl in the Far East. Going there in the summer.
To quote Captain Darling in Blackadder - *deep breath* - B*GGER!
HOWEVER - despite this, I don't feel quite ready to throw the towel in yet. Obviously, I hope I'll know the point at which to back off gracefully, and I'd hate to become a stalking nuisance. Still, I can carry on the social chit-chat and continue getting acquainted safely enough, and advertise my advantages, as it were - they're very few, but the major one is, to use some Northern fighting talk, 'I'm o'er 'eer, she's o'er theer!'
That's what I need, a proper Harry Hill-inspired FIIIIIGGGGGHHHHTT!
Am I being totally unprincipled or unrealistic? I don't want to steal him, just offer him a choice. Not the girl's fault either - but I've never wanted to fight for a bloke before.
In the meantime, the local pub are doing Single Nights once a week. Anyone got experience of these things? Are they the sort of doos girls attend on their own (i.e. without a female companion)?
If you don't like something, change it - REMEMBER - YOU'RE NOT A TREE!
omj, if you don't now fight for this guy , I, for one, shall be very disappointed in you... it is so clear that you are keen on him, and as you haven't let him know before now, you've 'allowed' someone else to stroll in.
As you say, not her fault but now is perhaps the time for you to make clear your interest in him. Maybe he has let this other girl in cos he thinks you aren't interested... YOU GO GIRL!!!
Never Give In!!!!
As for the singles nights, I've never been, but why not try to find out someone who goes and ask their opinion of what it's like. Even if you turned up just "out of curiosity" you might be pleasantly surprised. On the other hand, someone else could tell me that this final paragraph is pants; as I say, I have no experience, so am just trying to encourage you - but obviously I don't wanna encourage you in a bad direction!
Hi I wud just chill, enjoy bein single okay, treat yourself to major pamperin sessions rather than focus on meetin someone, hell read a book!!! I tell you readin a good book can take you to lots of places in the mind far better than real life dribble.... You got a myspace r facebook site? get friends on there with similar tastes to yourself..
