"I've taken to wearing suspenders on a semi-regular basis. I've become extremely unfond of belts. I'd like my trousers to be kept up without them choking the life out of me at the same time."

"Black pants are actually the worst choice. Black makes you look like a waiter and is not at all versatile. Charcoal is a far superior option. Strike black from your work wardrobe, unless it's a belt or shoes."

Interestingly, I'm not sure I have learned anything. I must be incredibly lucky or way more attractive than I thought (haha.... yeah right).

Anyways, what has seemed to work best with me when I am meeting them for the first time is not caring. If I don't care what the girl thinks about me, I tend to just be myself. And that's all it takes. I'm just being authentically me and not trying to be anyone else. What stems from that is a more relaxed and confident me. I was also kind of a dick when I first met her.

And to prove this wasn't a fluke, I also met a couple of ladies at Disneyland on Friday and acted the same way I did the first time. I could have easily gotten numbers and what not, but I didn't want to get a number and then be expected to use it. It's not fair to the girl I was originally dating (IMO) and it's not fair to the new girl either.

Hope this helps.

The date went well man. By the end of it we were just strolling with my arm around her shoulder or holding hands. It's moving well. Second date will be sometime next weekend. This weekend ended up being not possible because of logistics.

It's going decently well and I'm excited to see what's going to happen.

What's the status Pete? How's life?

On Saturday, I have a date with the girl I described in my previous post.

Thanks for getting back. The dinner was very FRIENDly. I wouldn't mind seeing if I could do something more with her, but I wouldn't want to make things awkward. She is a good friend, and I guess that's what she'll stay.

Disneyland was pretty dang awesome. My original plan was to go meet up with my friend, his girlfriend, and one of her friends. I also found out my best friend from San Diego was coming up, so I was going to spend a little time with him before the first friends showed up. First friends flaked, so I planned on spending time with Dan. Dan comes up with his friend, the friend's girlfriend, and the girlfriend's best friend. He deferred her to me, so I went in thinking, "Hey, this might be some good practice to see what I can do." Let's say that I did well, and now have her number. I'm aiming to take her out next weekend. :D

Last weekend my buddy had the idea to go to a bar to, "Pick up chicks." So we went to said bar and well.. that didn't work out so well. It was interesting to go and see what other people our age do to hit on women and well... I don't like it.

Last night, I went out to dinner with a lady friend. I have to say that it was definitely "just friends", but I wouldn't mind it being something else. I'll let this one play itself out.

Also, Friday I MIGHT be going to Disneyland with a friend, his girlfriend and one of her sorority sisters. This could be promising... We'll see.

Good luck this coming weekend!

Why do American Schools tolerate this?

Recently, one of by biology professors was injured and now is out for two weeks. Now we have this other lecturer filling in for her. The woman is some nature of middle eastern, and thus has an accent, but nothing is objectionably wrong with her use of English. However, she's quiet and has a very soft spoken sort of voice. The combination of the accent and the quietness make her incomprehensible. I can't understand the lecture being delivered. In High school, I even had a substitute teacher who…See More
