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…"
"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…"
"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.)"
"When I wrote my dissertation all I did was work until I was sleepy and sleep until I woke up and went to work again. I did two full rotations of the clock (sleeping later and later till I rotated 48 hours). I can see not having a social…"
"I read a tablet when it's cheaper to get the Kindle than a used book, but I prefer the physical book.
I was hopeful that I could get stuff from Japan by Kindle so I wouldn't have to pay intercontinental shipping! but every time I try to…"
"As my wife says "I'm married, but I'm not dead." I trust her implicitly and know that she would never take anything beyond flirtation. Would it bother me? Maybe, depends on the situation (and if I was being ignored). But…"
"I've done both and enjoy both. Tablets let you carry tons of books in lightweight form, and it's easy to read, adjust lighting, and change text size.
I enjoy physical books as well. They can be beautiful artifacts in and of…"
"I think the real question is here..why does it bother you? I love when my wife has the whole room just wanting her and they cannot have her and she's on me. Most people misconstrue my wife's actions or intentions because they do not know…"
"My wife does this...girls are so unstable even when they're our rock. What I mean is they NEED more reassurance. It's like they need to KNOW often just how you feel, even if you've already spelled it to the moon and back."
