Hello men, my name is Giddy to you fine sirs.

I have been reading the site on and off for about a month and decided to join the forum.
The last few years of my life have been less than perfect and I am now working hard towards being the best I can be. I had a 5 year long relationship end recently and found myself broke, (relatively) unqualified and full of excuses.

I was an engineer for a few years and than I tried going to class. I failed once and then failed a resit. Initially I was going through a rather deep depression and then the second time around I simply didn't try hard enough. This wont happen again.

Just last week I moved to the other end of the country as I wasn't happy where I was.
Today I had a telephone interview for a job and have been asked to attend a trial shift.

This job could very well be a turning point for me as I am being offered a salary and regular hours. Something i have no had for some time. There is one caveat. I have to prepare cocktails. While i have made the odd Mojito... I'm certainly not experienced at this and the job will be in a 5 star venue.

The next week will consist almost entirely of me practicing and memorizing different drinks. Any tips would be gladly appreciated either as far as turning ones life around, preparing cocktails or making a good impression.

I have started working on the "30 days to be a better man" series of articles and am finding it very inspiring.

Peace & respect.

Giddy.

At this point in time, I might focus most of my energy on memorizing cocktails. Putting the wrong liquor or flavor in someone's drink at a place like that probably wouldn't go over well more than once or twice.

How to Friendzone like a Gentleman?

Looking for some advice, or similar experiences from others here.  Sorry for the cheesy content.Just a little background, some of my friends are trying to set me and another friend of mine up. She's a very nice girl and I enjoy hanging out with her, but I just don't feel attracted to her in a romantic way.  At first I didn't do much about it, thinking that they would eventually get the point that I wasn't interested (I really didn't think that she had any feelings either).  Now it's to the…See More
