So I asked a woman I don't know out, introduced by a friend. She is an architecture grad student and going to graduate in a month and very busy with her thesis. She said she's busy until about 1-2…Continue
So I met a girl I am interested in at classes. We don't know each other too well, though we do occasionally talk about class-work both in person and online. And there was this enterprise workshop…Continue
"It means you should just give her some space and keep it brief. No need to be persistent, just keep it simple "hey, I just wanted to wish you well, I am confident everything will go great for you in the end because you are destined for success…"
"You could look at this as a 1-2 month period to try your luck with meeting other women until she's supposed to be back on the market (so to speak).
At the end of those 1-2 months:
If she's interested and you're dating someone else,…"
"Send her this text, good luck and great ideas for you thesis, when the time is right let me know, we can celebrate architecture by raising roof (optional addendum) cause I'm Rick James and you're a brick house"
...And move on…"
"No, no, no, no
Brad Pitt rule is still situational. If you call for a date at the wrong time, a no can still be just a no. Like I said earlier, why would you want to date a woman that dropped everything because it was Brad Pitt. If her mom…"
"Search for the Brad Pitt rule, I think there was even a post on AOM about it. Basically if you've showed interest by asking out and calling her and she is telling you she's busy, she isn't interested and you should move…"
"I've worked in an architecture firm, and they claim they work as hard as doctors in school but without the big bucks waiting for them upon graduation. This is perhaps an exaggeration, but not horribly off.
You are getting her at a very…"
"As others have said, move on and give her a shout again in late May. She really doesn't have time for anyone, not even Brad Pitt. If she dropped it all for Brad Pitt, she isn't worth the time as she shows she is a quitter right there at…"
"I certainly wouldn't wait up for this girl; if interesting opportunities arise between now and her graduation, definitely pursue them (unless you have your heart set on this one). After graduation, if you're still interested, you could…"
"About to do this to a girlfriend. Can't meet for lunch until after Easter and the associated extra studying. This meets the Brad Pitt Rule. (If you don't know what that is, search for it on the main site.)"
"See if I get this right-you don't yourself identify with any of the listed sexual minorities but you set up this group for dialog? Possibly you have an intellectual interest in the topic? These are people's LIVES you're discussing and…"
"Ian, he used do exactly that on the topic all the time. I suppose he's changed his stripes for whatever reason. If you think his religious beliefs (unless he's changed them) aren't the seeds of war I've a great bridge to…"
"Well Jack always wanted to denounce homosexuality on principle by saying the act was wrong in "god's eyes." I guess that's dialog. Why is it necessary to explain to people who condemn you that you even exist? Hell,…"
