There has been a lack of blogs because I've been really, really busy as of late. I get up early for work (4:30am early), don't arrive home until around 4pm. I'm usually cooking/eating dinner for 30 minutes, 2 1/2 hours are spent reading/responding to emails I got throughout the day while at work (since I've applied to jobs all over the county and getting a lot of interest. Even passed on some interviews due to getting too much). From 7pm to just after 9pm seems to be the only true free time I get at the moment on weekdays.
What happened was my CAG friend the_grimace
signed up for a certain online dating site and met his current girlfriend. After it worked for him and other friends (the site was free thankfully), I decided to try myself last weekend. I created my profile, answered a bunch of questions. I later decided to change my picture (to something that didn't look depressing, more so to something that suited my description better). I ended up getting a message from a girl who liked one of my favorite movies, saying she liked it too. We ended up having back and forth conversations since we shared some similar interests (mostly because we are both into anime, don't know if she's a gamer though). While the site didn't put our match percentage all that high, we seemed similar in many ways due to lacking experience with relationships/dating, along with being into some of the same things. Our age difference is only around a year, both the same race, but she is a little taller than me though. So after the conversations have gone well, I decided to put out an offer to hang out with her (take her to see a movie). Some wonder why I chose a movie? Lets just say I rather not make it a true date at first, since I feel it might be better to just hang out casually first, seeing a movie we both have interests in, and just being ourselves. If we enjoy each others company, we could be dating in our futures and so on. There's no denying I've had major problems finding a girl that would suit me, but this seems to be one who does. Oh yeah, the girl does live really close to me (within my area). So far I have yet to get back a message, so I hope I didn't scare the girl off.
I do hope we can possibly go to an anime convention together this summer.
I decided to do a match search on the site. I found another girl who is very geeky (even says it herself), being really into video games and anime. I sent her a message asking what games she may be into, because there might be a good match between us. I remember her mentioning that she'd like a guy who could put up with her crazy geekinees, but since people consider me the nerd/geek god, maybe something between us would work out.
I saw another girl into LittleBigPlanet 2, which might be a good match too. Most girls on the site though, I just didn't care about them. Our interests were way too different, and I just don't see any sort of relationship or friendship working out between us. Unfortunately, there was no 100% match girl liking all the same thing as me, like gaming, anime, basketball, snowboarding, same type of music, etc.
Oh course, I still have plenty of other girl stories I blogged about before (mostly ones I regret talking to more), so I'm hoping I don't lose this chance. Some people think I'm making a mistake falling into the "friend zone", but I just feel it might be best to have a casual night out getting to know one another, and if everything works out it could turn into a relationship. Regardless, I'm finally putting some effort into finding more women and trying to eventually get a relationship (or just another good friend to spend time with). It's quite shocking for me to now say I asked a girl out. It could be because I've dealt with job and other rejections in the past, making me feel it's okay to get rejected, you never know unless you try.
If anyone thinks I should change the way I initially ask a girl to hang out/do something, let me know via comments. I'm just really trying to bring a girl into my life to spend time with.
This blog may eventually be gone since I sort of fear a girl I date will find it one day, lol.
