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.)"
"It sounds like, at a fundamental level, your sleep quality is lacking. You say you sleep, but wake up exhausted and unable to function.
Yes, time. Yes, daylight. Yes alarm clocks, yes, yes. But it all boils down to waking up because you're…"
"1. The US economy is not a household budget. Some principles do apply to both, but overall - comparing them, even as an analogy, fails on several levels.
2. Absolutely, the debt should be dealt with. Growing faster afterwards is possible...…"
"Makes some sense. If you overspend yourself into credit card debt ... cutting-up the credit cards cuts your effective income, and using your actual income to pay it off reduces does so further. Less to spend because you already spent…"
