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.)"
"I guess there are several reasons why the insults get to me. First, I am a very kind person and people have respected me for that so I am not overly use to be insulting in public. The insults are often aimed as who I think I am as a person- a rule…"
"Are you comparing getting molested by a squirrel every day on the way to work with having a coworker throwing insults at you everyday?
This is something that just doesnt have to stand in a normal work enviroment. If someone of your staff comes to…"
"HaHaHa, the squirrel visualization is hilarious. I have already had first a heart to heart and then the telling of enough. Still doesn't stop and I don't feel confident in my own social prowess to insult my coworker back. Yes, the insults…"
"Sounds a bit like a "stick up my ass" issue.
Who gives a fuck about demonstrating teenangers in one school? Half of the people demonstrating there are dudes who thought
"Hey Bro, lets go demonstrate about that…"
"You've already explained a lot of reasons why you shouldn't take it personally. Do you honestly care what this person thinks about you? Obviously I don't know the nature of the insults, but are they actually hurtful? or is it more the…"
"Two options come to mind.... Option 1, is when your manager threatens you with HR simply say fantastic let's go to HR and then you can explain to your HR and people above your manager why this nonsense is happening at work and why your manager…"
