I forgot my mom's birthday is today. It sorta just flew out of my mind. I don't know what to get her. I was thinking like a gift card to a fancy resturant or maybe re-doing her gym membership.

Get a big box that you fit into. Tell your dad to call your mom into the room and when she gets inside, jump out of the box dancing to the milkshakes song. Make her laugh. Or at least that would make me laugh for my birthday present.

Ergh it's so much more.

I've typed pages worth of text to my friends to describe her to them, and my feelings for her would take up a whole book.

It's just.. She feels the same way about another guy.
User avatar #143718 to #143686 - dingdongsingsong (07/11/2014) [-]
I know i know, but like you wouldn't want her to be with you out of pity.
And i've been through something similar with a guy although probably not as serious as yours .
but what i did was i forced myself to stop talking to that person because we were just friends but he obviously didn't feel the same way about me as i felt about him.
It was pretty hard, stalking seeing if he was online and if he would message me etc etc .
But i got over it eventually.
You can either do that.
OR
you could keep trying to get her, but this method involves you leaving all of your pride and self respect , you can keep trying to talk to her even if she refuses, and try every possible way to get her back and she MIGHT start liking you solely because you like her so much, there is a small chance this will work but it really depends on the person.

My friends are upset for me and decided to help me come up with a super cheesy plan for showing her what I do just to let her know how I feel.

Her favorite flowers are white roses, and her favorite song is "I'll follow you into the dark" by death cab for cutie.

I'm going to show up at her house with a dozen bundles of those roses, and play my guitar/sing to her that song in her yard as a surprise. If it doesn't work, it'll at least show her I'm willing to embarrass myself to be with her.


I'll record the whole thing.
OP will deliver.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm a depressed fuck. I'm not really negative but I just can't seem to be happy anymore. My biggest issue is that I don't feel like I can trust people any more. I feel like any attempt to change my self and meet new people is all for not because I'll just be used or others will only lie to me to make me feel better. I don't want to feel or be this way but I just don't know how to see things in a better light anymore. Is there anyone out there who has felt the same way and can share there experiences? Maybe give me some advice? also I just feel like a suck at making conversation as well. I can't stand small talk.

> "My biggest issue is that I don't feel like I can trust people any more. I feel like any attempt to change my self and meet new people is all for not[hing,] because I'll just be used[,] or others will only lie to me to make me feel better."

I understand where you're coming from with this, but please note that depression is the same as the blinders on a horse.
You're looking at your own situation in only one way. You're viewing through blinders that you've put on yourself.
Learn to try and see things a different way --> "When life gives you lemons, you can either cut them in half and squeeze them into your eyes asking "Why?!," or you can make Lemonade.
When handed something so sour and bitter, you don't have to do something sour and bitter; You can make it sweet and satisfying. It's all on your perception, you can do what you will with it, but it is best to think outside the box.
Besides, who ever thought to collect lemon juice and mix it with sugar and water in the first place?"


If you're meeting people who take advantage of you, then clearly you're hanging out with the wrong people. Change your social settings a bit. Ignore some, if not most, from your current social setting.
Now it may sound hard to 'change your social settings,' but in reality it's not... Try MeetUp www.meetup.com/ , do some volunteer work, find a job, attend a community college and join in on their events, etc.
Think outside the box, and think outside your typical age-range. (Preferably people older, but no older than +5 years, really.)

Onto the second part of the statement:
> "...Others will only lie to me to make me feel better."

This part is tricky. Just try to remember that when people do this, they do it because they care for you. Yes it's out of bias, but it's certainly not a lie. How would they benefit by making you feel better?
This is a selfless act of kindness, not a selfish act of kindness.
User avatar #143588 to #143586 - spacesword (07/11/2014) [-]
To further elaborate on what I meant by people lieing to me, I ment that it seems they only do it out of pitty. It's nice but It just feels hollow. I like what you had to say though. I'm all ready in college but I don't really socialize much. Some people just annoy me and when I do find people that don't they are always busy or I don't know how to talk to them...
User avatar #143598 to #143588 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (07/11/2014) [-]
Yeah... That's where it gets tricky:
The ones who do it out of pity do so for attention.
The ones who are more sincere with their bias, such as parents, do so because they want to inspire you to do better.
In this case, the latter is the type of person you would want to hold onto, the former is the type of person you would want to leave behind.

My last girlfriend pitied me so much, that she waited to break up with me until after prom and after my birthday.
In her mind it was a win-win scenario. She was able to go to prom with a boyfriend, and I was able to say I went to prom. She was able to host my birthday party, and I was able to say that I've actually had a birthday party.
She did this selfishly.

It's a grey area on whether or not people do such things selflessly or selfishly, but their lifestyle should reflect this. Are they someone who is friends with everyone and is always using social media? Or are they someone who is more secluded, and confined to themselves, in comparison?
My ex was the former. She goes to feed the homeless or volunteer at an old folks' home? INSTAGRAM #HELPINGTHEOLDPEOPLE.
She did everything selfishly, out of pity. She had to have that extra re-assurance that she was a good person for doing good. But as Futurama once said... "When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all."

Now, it's entirely possible to pity someone selflessly, but in that case it's more on the sincere side. They pity you because they want to help you. Again, it's easy to see how it can be such a grey area. I can understand how most of what they say feels hollow. But you just have to sift through the crap and find out who is pure and true to you.

Anyhow, maybe make some friends in your classes. Before you know it you'll have a few decent acquaintances. Then when you're comfortable with them, start hanging out with them and see how it goes. If they like you, then they'll try to schedule a day and time to hang out.

A depression usually and obviously is connected to you not being satisfied with your life. Let me ask you a few questions. If you could change anything you want about yourself, what would it be? Do you think you are going into the right direction in life? What do you hate the most about yourself?
User avatar #143587 to #143584 - spacesword (07/11/2014) [-]
Well I would like to be more social. Not in a partying kind of way but I wish I was better at makin and maintaining a conversation.

I feel like I'm in the right path with my life but that I need to focus on what my next goal is. I'm in collage for premed but feel like I'm lost when it comes to where I want to or will be in 4 years from now.

I actually really like me. I think I'm funny I may not be wittiest or the best at creating content on here but when it comes to situational comedy I'm pretty good in real life. , I'm a nice person, but that I distance my self from people because I feel like I'm a burden or that I try too hard with little success. I some times hate how I can't get past my own guilt. I don't like to lie, embellish or taking a step when it means putting someone else down because it just eats at my head that I shouldn't. I feel like it holds me back but do I really want to lose my morals to become something new?
#143589 to #143587 - minutes ONLINE (07/11/2014) [-]
You should always be yourself, don't try to change yourself for others. You can however, be "the-best-yourself" that you can be. If you want to be more social, the only thing you could actually do about this is get more experience. Talk more with random people, whenever you can pick up a conversation don't hesitate. Also great exercise for this are sites like omegle. If you want to learn how to keep a conversation there is nothing better then speaking to completely random strangers you know absolutely nothing about. It all comes down to your commitment and will to better yourself. To me it doesn't really seem like you're depressed, since you actually like yourself. It's more like you aren't satisfied with what you got and maybe a bit of a self confidence issue? I can't really tell since I don't know you, just guessing here. If you think you're going the right way, don't stop. The fact that you have morals already makes you a pretty decent person so you should not try to overcome them, if anyone doesn't like you because of that he is simply not your friend, not everyone everywhere is going to like you. This might not be that helpfull to you but concerning social skills, experience and self confidence is really the only thing that matters. Sounds really cliche but you just gotta work on it to get it better. It's like lifting. the more you do it, the more you can lift.

My wife has been accusing me of doing drugs and cheating on her. She thinks I'm wasting all our money on drugs and other things and not giving any to her. Like I'm hiding money. She's relentless and constantly raising hell and accusing me of things that aren't true. She has taken my house key(she even tried to kick me out, of my own house), she won't let me drive anywhere even to work, and she even keeps showing up at my workplace to spy on me. She has even cussed out one of my bosses when they refused to let her inside the gate due to a new rule from the higher ups. I just don't understand guys. She has never been this stubborn and crazy before. Anyone have any idea why she would be acting this way?
User avatar #143663 to #143570 - dingdongsingsong (07/11/2014) [-]
I guess if you're having financial problems then that could be the reason to her acting out.
If you trust her enough you could tell her all the bills and expenses and tell her to manage the money ie: hand your salary to her.
Just a possible solution.
User avatar #143577 to #143570 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (07/11/2014) [-]
The only time I've seen people start such accusations is when they, themselves, were partaking in said accusations before accusing their partner.
Now, this could all be baggage from something in the past, which is very common too...
But if she's heavily controlling of your money and accusing you of doing drugs... It's a possibility that she might be the one doing drugs.

Next time she kicks you out, call the cops. Go to a neighbor's house to call the cops.
Next time she accuses you of doing drugs, accuse her.

More importantly, find a way to talk to her open and honestly and find out what the problem is.

I've been deeply in love with this girl for years. We were really close friends in high school and we used to talk, hang out, and just all together loved getting to know each other. I never asked her out because I was going to graduate before her and go to college across the country. When I finally got my head out of my ass and realized that she was more important, she was already dating my best-friend. That was all 2 years ago.

They are still dating, so I had to travel back to my hometown to say something. I obviously hate this guy (who was once my friend) and he hates me. I think that he's to abusive and controlling and it just pains me that they are together. I would literally do anything to be with her.

Last night, I went down to her work (a hospital) and started talking to her. She was really glad to see me. However, when I finally came to tell her that I like her, she just didn't reciprocate those feelings. I am almost suicidal, and need some advice on what to do.
#143580 to #143564 - minutes ONLINE (07/11/2014) [-]
This is a classic situation. I have been through something similar and I really know what you feel. I know this sounds hard but you have to forgive yourself. It's a mistake you made in the past (not asking her out earlier obviously) and you faced the consequences. Now you have to live with it cause there is absolutely nothing you can do to change the situation. But do you know what you can do? You can learn from this mistake. Acknowlegde what you did wrong and never do it again. Next time, you know what not to do right? People say you learn more from a failure then from success. Now it might seem like the end of the world to you so you should just give in. Be sad for some time, be frustrated, but you will recover. Whenever life knocks you down, always get up just to spit in its face. Go back to college, follow your dreams and you will find another girl that likes you for who you are. You can do it.

Thank you. I needed to hear that. While of course, I'd like to be with her. My problem is more that
1) her boyfriend is an abusive loser
2) I don't know if I can meet someone like that again

It obviously is troubling seeing her in such an abusive relationship, and I've tried looking for new people, to meet, but have felt no attraction in the slightest.
User avatar #143574 to #143564 - thirdjess (07/11/2014) [-]
Classic infatuation. You.. imagine (for lack of a better term) a relationship with someone that does not exist. This includes framing certain actions of hers in a positive light and framing certain actions of his in a negative. The best thing you can do is go back to college and just forget about her. Delete pictures of her, delete her number, delete her on facebook. Cold turkey. The longer you interact with her the longer this is going to be drawn out and the harder it will be for you to get over her. And even if by some miracle she showed up at your doorstep tomorrow and said 'hey, I love you.' the result would be an extremely unhealthy relationship that you should not participate in.
#143675 to #143574 - anonymous (07/11/2014) [-]
I know what you mean. I've been trying to pry myself off, but she keeps coming back. It seems like every time I delete her number, she texts me. I know I should just quit cold turkey and have us both be happy apart from each other, but it doesn't look like thats happening
User avatar #143562 - thecharliesheen (07/11/2014) [-]
I'm starting to get really frustrated with some of my friends, and I'm not entirely sure how to deal with it. I'm sort of an anti-social person, and I really don't like texting, talking on the phone, or even hanging out or messaging much. A lot of the old friends I have know this and learned that I have to be really comfortable with someone to want to do any of that, but recently I've made a few new friends that are having some serious boundary issues. They'll message me several times despite me not answering back because I'm busy or taking care of my grandma (she broke her hip so I've been taking care of her), usually making up see-through and stupid excuses to talk. If I don't answer those back, they message me on Facebook, and if I don't answer that, they start commenting on past statuses, and then if that fails, they start messaging my Steam account, online or not. It's never anything important, and even when I do answer back, the conversation goes nowhere because they don't have anything to say. In person, it can get even worse. My younger sister and I recently attended a con, and we were followed around constantly by someone we didn't want to really be around. He's a good friend, but cons are special to my sister and I. When he went off to go see some friends, we left to go check out some booths, and apparently he spent the rest of the time scouring the entire place looking for us thinking he was a part of our party now.
I feel like an asshole because they're really nice kids, and I know they don't mean any harm, but I'm sort of afraid I'm going to end up blowing up on them and driving them away because I'm seriously anti-social and they always take it as me using/abusing them. I'm just more comfortable in my own home, alone or with my sister. I don't know how to tell them without them getting mad or angry.

tl;dr I'm an antisocial prick who with friends with some boundary issues and doesn't know quite how to cope with it.

Stage 8 Clingers.

As Limb and ThirdJess said, you could have a meeting with them...
Or you could just drop contact.

It's one thing to occasionally message someone through text, Facebook, or Steam...
But it's a completely different thing to nag them on all three until they respond. That means they have no life.
You're honestly probably the only decent friend they have. The only one who eventually responds.

If you value their friendship at all, you should have a discussion with each telling them that they're a bit too clingy and if you don't respond, give you some space.
User avatar #143694 to #143582 - thecharliesheen (07/11/2014) [-]
The odd thing is that the worst offender has a lot of friends. On the rare occasion we do hang out, he's always receiving texts and calls out the fuckin' ying yang. Also when we accidentally ran back into him at Con bad mistake , he was sitting and laughing with a large group of friends. I would feel a little worse about the situation if he was a serious beta with no friends and no one who cared about him, but he seems to be a social butterfly. Just my luck, with all the friends he has, he chooses to barrage me (the one person who doesn't enjoy it) with constant attention. I kid you not, I just woke up to another fuckin message.
User avatar #143710 to #143694 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (07/11/2014) [-]
I know exactly that feel.
One of my "friends" is just as bad.

He has more friends than I do, but if he such as sees one? He's clinging onto them for dear life.

Honestly it might be best to ignore him. Or, you know, confront him about it, tell him to give you some personal space. I kid you not, a large portion of his friends have probably blocked him or ignore him.

He's probably a lot like my "friend," starts off as a really cool guy. Then he'll cling onto you and repeat the same joke you tell him over and over again... All up until you tell him another joke.
Once I showed him a Cyanide and Happiness comic. For 6 weeks he recited the comic every 30 minutes. I'm still Facebook friends with him, but I'll refuse to respond to him. It's bad, yes, but he brings it upon himself.

Confrontation is a little hard, because these kids were raised this way. It's the only way they know how to get someone's attention and it works.
Which is why ignoring them, then confronting them in person would probably be the best route to choose. Yes it's blunt, direct, and mean, but they'll get the picture...
User avatar #143716 to #143710 - thecharliesheen (07/11/2014) [-]
It's a shitty situation. I mean he seems nice and innocent enough, but I already have a friend who does that kind of shit who I've put up with for years, I really don't need another one, especially when the conversation always consists of outings that I have no interest in attending, or "hey, you wanna go get some tacos today or something?" which I really don't want to do. If I want food, I'll probably get it myself alone.
It sucks, it almost feels like I'm training a dog when I don't answer the phone. Like I'm trying to fucking teach him that I won't answer if he calls every five bloody minutes. It's not the only time I've had to do it either.

Every time I confront people like that, they ending up turning into bitches about it. Like they pull the whole "Oh, so you'll hang out when we get food or I take you to run errands, but not any other time?" which makes no fucking sense because I never let anyone buy me food. I always buy my own, and I have my own car, I could go alone. I just let them tag along to try and be nice.
User avatar #143730 to #143716 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (07/11/2014) [-]
Then maybe just drop contact.
Even if it means waiting through receiving 70+ messages and 20+ missed calls.
Show them that their cry for attention can and will go unnoticed.

Again, they only berate you with messages and calls because they know, at some point, you'll give in and give them attention.

Some things we have to learn the hard way.

That can be a tender situation where feelings could get hurt mostly the people you tell to fuck off. I would have a group meeting with all said boundary offenders and tell them all straight up how it is. Or you could just one on one it and hurt some feelings. Seems like it wouldn't be as hurtful if they didn't feel like they were the only ones upsetting you. Just my 2 cents.

I actually made a point to tell them that right when we met and they asked for my number. I told them that I probably wouldn't answer much and I definitely wouldn't hang out much. The basic gist of the conversation went "Oh yeah, I'm that way too, I'm totally antisocial and don't really enjoy bleh bleh fucking bleh".
I think they thought I was kidding.

3rd day of youtube refusing to play some videos, tested on every single computer in this house none of them wont play the videos that are broken.

anybody else having this problem? ive tried pretty much everything to fix the problem, none of them worked.

"None of them wont play the videos that are broken."

If it's more than just an issue on one computer, then it's either an issue with your ISP or YouTube's CDN.
Netflix and YouTube are under attack by ISPs right now, so it wouldn't surprise me if a video you are requesting is outside the range of a local CDN, and your ISP is blocking it.
User avatar #143625 to #143579 - thumbsdenied (07/11/2014) [-]
so just wait it out?

Link me to the videos?
If they're popular videos (over 120k views is a good number), then I wouldn't see why they won't load.
If they're unpopular videos, with less than 80k views, it's somewhat understandable if you had an ISP that's throttling Netflix and YouTube.
User avatar #143627 to #143626 - thumbsdenied (07/11/2014) [-]

I'd appreciate some home remedies for insomnia. Nothing medical or very common, since I can assure you I've tried them all. I've always had pretty bad insomnia but around 3 years ago it started to get worse and worse. I very rarely get more than 3 hours of sleep per night and I have to make do with small naps throughout the day. So please, any insomnia remedies you guys know that isn't really widespread like pills or tea or taking a shower, you know, more obscure stuff... all of that would be appreciated.
#143595 to #143557 - quatre (07/11/2014) [-]
I know the feeling OP, like there's a buzzing in your brain that won't turn off, amiright? Here's what I found to help.
1)cut out naps. seriously
2)cut out any caffeine after noon. no sodas, no after dinner coffee, avoid chocolate. no caffeine.
3)set aside 45 minutes whenever you can to work out. do some jogging, pushups, jumping jacks, anything to make your body tired, not just your brain. Look to be sweaty and a little sore at the end.
4)similarly, set your mind to something. You didn't mention your age, but don't stop learning after graduation. Learn another language, how to draw, higher mathematics, anything and everything can be found free on the internet, and I bet you have a local library too. You don't need to be good, you just need to fatigue your brain, give it something to process and a reason to sleep.
5)experiment with the room temperature, i recommend as cool as you can take it, but no colder than 55*F
6)get off the computer and tv/games at least an hour before you go to bed. shower, read, build a model, listen to music, set out clothes for the morning; just don't stare at a lit screen, shit like that keeps you awake and FJ is especially addictive
7) a shot or two of whiskey is an old remedy. it's proven to both induce sleep quicker but reduce quality of sleep; but shitty sleep is better than none.
8)a source of white noise like a fan or signal-less tv (covered with a blanket) can drown out the ambient noise that grabs your attention when you're trying to drift off.
9)a previous reply mentioned masturbation, and in the absence of sex, it helps

good luck

Don't nap.
You've made this a habit. Break the habit, don't nap for an entire day, and by the time night comes take some Melatonin and you'll go to sleep with ease.

A few questions.

-I recently found out that the website for Boxer Hockey (boxerhockey.fireball20xl.com/) was shut down. Anyone know another place I could find the comics?

-I need show recommendations.
Some shows I like: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Attack on Titan, Futurama, Key and Peele, Samurai Jack, Gravity Falls, Avatar: the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra.
Some shows I don't like: Dr. Who, any slice of life or harem anime(in fact, I don't like most anime in general), Walking Dead, Tosh.0 and shows like it.

Thanks in advance guys.

Freaks and Geeks
Arrested Development
Firefly
The IT Crowd
30 Rock
House of Cards
Luther

Also, Adult Swim has a number of full series on their website. Their video player is sorta weird because it breaks the episodes up into parts instead of just loading a full episode, but it's still good. Some of the shows they have on the website:

Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil (Which I'm watching now. It's pretty good)
Eagleheart (One of my favorite shows, but it's not for everyone)
Rick and Morty (Also excellent)
China, IL

There are a bunch of the older AS shows too, like Sealab 2021 and 12 oz. Mouse (At least I think that's one of the older shows).

I don't know where you're from, but if I were to assume you live in the U.S., have a cable TV package, and that Comcast is your cable provider, if you have XFINITY Streampix (or something like that), there should be a number of full series through that program as well. Although this all runs off the assumption you live in the U.S.

Help! Need some relationship advice.

Since I don't really want to write a giant book about it, I will keep it short. I will also not be specific when it comes to names and specific details not concerning the issue. (For obvious reasons. )

Basically, my best friends Ex, lets call her Derp (3 months relationship with my best friend) told me she likes me. I've been friends with her since me and my best friend met her and he subsequently asked her out. About 2 years friendship between me and her. I like her to, but I dont know what to do. She told me she liked my friend initially when they were dating, but for the most part she liked me instead, and couldnt tell me while she was dating my friend.

The issues:
- Best friend still has feelings for her and is still trying to win her back
- He is friends with her mom and sister and is close to them. Treated as part of the family.
- Her father is in the hospital for a serious health condition. (Complication: She has a lot to worry about.)
- She goes to a university on the East coast of the U.S during school, so any relationship would be long distance if its not over the summer.
- She's a good person (A.k.a not a slut, is nice, caring) but she is not very outgoing and she's very timid which means she is also insecure in some ways.

In other words, besides all the issues involved, I really like her, but I dont know what I should do. She likes me too, to some extent, but with all the issues going on she doesnt feel like now would be a good time to date, with mostly my best friend being the biggest issue. I've asked her if she told my BestF that she does not like him, but she remains vague what she told him, and seeing that he's still very persistent in trying to get back together with her, Im doubtful if she told him anything concrete.

Should I just stay friends with her in the hopes that she will eventually wake up from her insecurities to want to date me or should I break it off and move on?
( Pic somewhat related.)
User avatar #143548 to #143545 - thatnigger (07/11/2014) [-]
She may be a good person, but she doesn't seem all that honest. Sure, it'd completely suck if your girlfriend came up to you and said she wants your best friend instead, but honestly how much longer can that relationship work out when she has those feelings in her heart. She doesn't want to hurt him, so she hides things from him and it will only hurt him more if he finds out.
If you do intend to go through with this, wait it out. Basically wait till he moves on and she's in a better spot and if she still likes you, go for it. It would be better to move on, but still be friends if it's not completely weird to still be friends with her. Good luck.
User avatar #143554 to #143548 - xxdremisterxx (07/11/2014) [-]
You gotta remember, she's really timid and some insecurities. Telling a guy she's dating that she doesnt like him and likes his friend instead would be a hard thing for her to do because of who she is. ( she tends to avoid confrontations if possible.)

That's pretty much what I have been doing for the past year. I confessed to her last summer I liked her, but when things started getting worse for her dad, she didnt want to complicate things so she wanted to stay friends. I'm seeing her again this summer, but my best friend is back as well and we all sorta hangout again without the her dating him part. So it gets to be awkward at times. He doesnt know we like each other, and yet he still chases after her, despite her not showing any feelings for him. ( He's taking her kindness as being interested, which makes things even worse. ) I've told her several times she's got to be hard on him and tell him shes not interested to finally get him to move on, but like I said, shes timid and doesnt like direct confrontations, so its a bust on that notion. I've thought about being honest with my friend about my feelings for her, but I've held back coming clean since I really dont know how much she likes me yet, and Im not willing to risk my friendship over a maybe. (If I knew for sure, I would have acted or moved on)

At this point in our relationship, all we really are is just friends. I like her alot, she still talks to me and texts me a lot, so i'm guessing she still likes me, but she hasnt done anything to really prove to me that she "really" likes me, even though she reminds me every now and then how she cares for me and if things were different we would be together, etc.

I know I want to stay friends with her, because she hasn't done anything to upset me or ruin our friendship in anyway. finding genuine caring friends are hard to come by these days, but I don't know if I should keep harboring these feelings for her or just move on. Should I stop trying to make it happen?
User avatar #143555 to #143554 - thatnigger (07/11/2014) [-]
I do understand, that's who she is and it's hard for her to say things sometimes. I just think that if you were to go out, she might want to hold back things from you as well because it'd be hard to tell you, ya know? I think being friends is still good, and only go for a relationship when it's much less complicated and if you tell her she has to communicate more and not hide things from you, ya know? I think moving on is probably for the best, but I'm not going to tell you to just disregard your feelings for her, and if you really do want her then you'd probably have to wait and hope things work out...
#143556 to #143555 - xxdremisterxx (07/11/2014) [-]
Yeah..... That's what I fear. Her insecurities make it hard for her to trust anyone, and she has a hard time being honest about things that mean a lot to her, as she is afraid of what might happen if she did open up.    
   
I agree with you in the waiting for things to be less complicated. She's going through a lot and I'm not sure if being in a relationship is the best thing for her (Even if its something I want to happen.) I have to respect her space and let her come to me I guess. If being friends with her is the best thing I can do atm, then I guess I'll have to wait. :/    
   
I think the thing that bothers me the most is that idea that, maybe things would workout if I did do something and If I wait I might miss my chance kinda thing. I have no clue what I would need to do though, and I dont want to do anything that might upset the balance and drive her away. Ugh.... The struggles are real.    
   
Thank you for replying and helping me talk this out. I really appreciate it. I thought there would be some magic cure all advice, but I guess my situation is still as grey as ever. haha.

I'm aware this whole thing is gonna sound like a nice guy routine, but hear me out. If you care for her then you gotta be there for her. She really doesn't need any more complications in her life, but she could use a hand. Just help her out, and most importantly don't expect anything. If you care for her, then take care of her, for now and wait until she's in a place where having a relationship wouldn't make things harder. Also, discuss this with your friend, ask him what he thinks of it and make it clear you've got no current plans of being with her, but that you also care deeply for her. At this point there's nothing you can do except being supportive, if you can, until they are in a better spot. But you shouldn't do any of this if it would bring you hardship.

Space it out a bit.
If you don't hit them up for a few days/weeks, and then you send them a message, they'll think a lot more of it. If they send you something then by all means respond. Also, don't message them just for the sake of messaging them.

And you could always, y'know, ask if they feel you are annoying them

Woman problems people, incoming!!
Let's make this quick. Met a girl months ago in college class. Let's call her Bella.You don't need to know which class, never mind how she looks, fuck you. We start talking and connect easily. A week after meeting Bella I ask her out &get rejected. We're still friends, we stay cool. Me & her always hangout at her place with her friends and family. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago. Me, Bella, My bro, and 2 of his female friends go to the movies. She never met these people and we never hungout outside her house or college. She's starts becoming super clingy, brushing/holding my arm, even one part sits on my lap before the movie. After the movies, we all go home and I text her what was all that about in the theatre. She said she was just nervous. Is this true? Is she lying? Am I putting to much thought into this? If so why did she become flirtatious all of sudden? Respond posted this again because I wanted a pic

No one else has said this, so I'll chime in
Personally, I think she's confused- as in, she thinks she's attracted to you, but isn't completely sure. If you see her acting a bit off or shy around you, she probably likes you
I've had these periods of confusion, and have done similar things that "Bella" has done

I agree with the anon, or she could have wanted to let the other girls think you're off limits. Just ask her if she's maybe changed her mind about dating. Be casual about it though.
#143508 to #143507 - anonymous (07/11/2014) [-]
well... it could be 2 things.

1. she actually was nervous and that's all it was
or
2. the time you spent with her over those few weeks, she might have actually changed her mind and started liking you.

but with that in mind don't jump to any conclusion just from that one event, if it were to happen every time you did something like going to the cinema, then that night mean the second point.
