Lets be friends!

This coming from a girl I had a (one) date a couple years ago. She just randomly emailed me out of nowhere a couple weeks ago and wanted to see me. So we hung out, did stuff. I figured she was waiting for me to make a move.

Wrong.

I feel unbelievably stupid. Who better to tell than the anonymous members of bikeforums?

So you're saying that she just wanted to be friends and nothing else?

You have entered the friendzone. There is no way out.


Well...there are ways. But they are all incredibly difficult to pull off. Good luck.

Meh. Maybe she did want OP to make a move. Just not try for the grandslam on the first at-bat.

Better than hearing the statement "we're friends, friends with benefits, right?".

I'm not sure I was listening after the point where I realized her answer was no. I asked if she wanted to be boyfriend/girlfriend.

Would've been better just to have gotten a no instead. ****.

Seriously I think I need some sort of girl secret decoder ring.

So you dated this woman once a couple of years back, she gets a hold of you out of no where and you ask her to be boyfriend/girlfriend? Do you even know her anymore?

Not really. If it seems bizarre, then it probably IS bizarre. What she did is just plain weird.

It's exactly these type of questions why I want to stab myself in the face with a rusty nail. Right now. I wouldn't call it dated, unless one date counts as "dated". And then, nothing happened for a year or two. Literally nothing. Then the email, bunch of lunches/stuff. And I figured you know - back to post #1. And here we are.

God, **** this.

heh. Was a bartender for several years, and saw the background to different things - saw mens doing it - saw womens doing it. Users. And it's sad that some people like this just don't care because it leaves the person wanting to date - a bad taste because the expectation may be that the next person may be like this last person ----- and it most likely won't be.

Scratch this one and move on.


I like you Siu!

God, **** this.
I bet she needed some kind of ego boost here. Maybe she has been feeling kind of down lately and needed to know that she still "has it"? Did she go through a break up recently?

Ugh, I detest that mindset. It's not like they're playing with a doll with no feelings when they do this.

A friend of my girlfriend did something like this to see if she 'still had it'. When the subject was brought up in conversation va few weeks ago, I said, "WTF are you f-ing kidding me?". And the worst part she has a boyfriend who is in the Army...
