Thank you so much for your comment of encouragement and wisdom. I took a couple of days off from AoM to put all the comments in perspective, and I decided to close the discussion. I will actually soon send a message to some of you to…"
"Stay strong my friend. I went through a veritable nightmare of a divorce a few years ago, lawyers financially destroyed me, but I didn't lose the most important things in my life, my kids. Life as a single father is difficult. Don't even…"
"As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind. Do you want that to happen? It's going to be tough enough as it is. You might consider…"

Ok, then: let's become millionaires.
Step 1) Go through her private messages
Step 2) Find her communication with someone she would for sure tell whether she had sex or not
Step 3) Look until you find a message when…"
"Dear Ken (if I may),
First of all, let me say that - while reading the comments to your post - I was positively surprised to learn that you are only 20. I'm a university professor, so I deal exactly with people of your age, and I can tell you…"
Stay strong my friend. I went through a veritable nightmare of a divorce a few years ago, lawyers financially destroyed me, but I didn't lose the most important things in my life, my kids. Life as a single father is difficult. Don't even think about divorce proceedings unless you're very serious. Things may be retrievable at this stage.

I sincerely hope that things work out well for you, John
As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind. Do you want that to happen? It's going to be tough enough as it is.

(I put this here because I'm not trying to start a fight on that thread, but I still wanted to say this.)
"Couple of reasons. First, asking permission to even talk to her is pretty weak, and doesn't sound as confident as you generally want to come off in a date request. Second, you can hear her tone of voice and discern better whether…"
This post assumes a Judeo-Christian worldview. If you want to challenge that, start another thread. Don't hijack this one, thank you.My father said something a while back that I am not sure I agree with. He said that if man succeeds in creating life artificially, that life would be an abomination and not a true human. I did not ask because it was to a group of people and not a personal conversation, but I assume he meant it would be a golem of sorts, a "hollow shell." He didn't mean artificial…See More
"I suppose but I can't understand why calling instead of texting would be any different. Read an an article on AoM that said that texting was also possible to use. I see it like if they ask you out through text or not really doesn't matter…"
"I decided to send her a text to ask her if it was ok for me to call her, so I did. She replied: "[Call] About what?" So I decided to just text her about it. Feels like calling is intrusive nowadays somehow. And the reply to the date…"
"I am one of those that Paul mentions as having "The Gift of Singleness." It was never my intention to be single for as long as I have. Most of the women I've dated have been dissatisfied with aspects of who I am. So instead of…"
