Just talk to them like...wait for it... human beings.

Be fun, be outgoing, be yourself and above all else. Be a gentleman. Open doors, be polite etc. Expect the same respectful behavior in return (appreciation for said door openings etc). If she isn't reciprocating the respect, walk away ( no matter how hot).

This is not rocket dentistry folks. There's no magical "game" or "mad lady skillzzz" unless you're just aiming for boning floozies (can be fun but a largely hollow process...). If that's your goal I'm sure you can find all sorts of info on how to trick women to play with your twig and berries. Otherwise it's pretty straightforward.

Honesty, respect, reciprocity, communication, chemistry. If they're not there move on until you find it.

Perhaps most importantly be honest with yourself what YOU want. So much misery is caused by people not being honest with themselves and blaming it on the other person.

Update:

(...Continued from locked thread)

I ended up meeting her and went on a couple of dates with her!

So, she's a lot more comfortable with meeting up now that we got over the hump. She isn't as hideous as she said she was - she was just really really insecure.

She's a nice girl. We asked each other to be upfront with each other and we did. We basically asked each other "invasive" questions not to look for suspicious answers but to gain trust with each other. Worked like a charm. She felt like she had no more things to hide from me and neither did I.

We've visited each other's place once now.

Lots of phone calls + texts.

I just know she's crazy about me and I really like her back. We're probably going to get serious from here on in.


Thanks for everyone's help in the other thread which got unfortunately locked.

So we are officially in a bit of a silly season, and in general I stay away from the completely crazy rumors that persist on the internet, or in the case of the Leafs having interest in Nabokov or Turco I will occasionally debunk them...however, I have been getting inundated with emails, PMs, and questions on twitter regarding a few rumors that are out there...so here goes.. I will address the rumors and follow with what I have or haven't heard...If you all like this format, maybe Wacky Wednesdays could be a regular feature. I wouldn't do it more than once a week, because I am too busy talking to actual sources and attempting to provide you all with as much unique information as possible.

You said you had no more things to hide from her...


... So you told her you got relationship advice from an only hockey forum?

I never gave out her name, my location, her location and any of the details. She lives in a small town and isn't into watching sports. I don't see what the problem is.

Like I said, I wasn't sure about what to do.

I WAS upfront with her. I told her that I wasn't sure why she was so initially unwilling to meet (despite the fact that everything else suggested she was interested) but that I was glad that she took the gamble on me. I told her how I felt and she confirmed to me (afterward) that it would have been bad had I walked away from the situation.

Not sure what you're trying to say here.

Pretty sure even those old Nokias could add symbols. It's probably in the menu, you can add symbols.

In any case, glad to hear ML18. Good news that everything is working out! Good luck!

RIP LB RR PD

Yet.. he was able to put two ellipses (three periods + three periods).

I'm in a good mood so I'm not gonna call you out :lol:

Also, many thanks for the support! I hope things go well with a current crush/future girl.
