Are girls worth the trouble?

I've never had a girlfriend and I have my eye on this girl at college who lives on the same floor as me but lately I've been asking myself; Is it worth it to pursue a relationship at this point?

The other thing that I've thought about is; If I don't do it now, Will I ever do it?

Ask her out first before making a long lasting relationship. Be her friend too.

It's always worth the trouble Without girls, we'd have a boring life!

Yes, but most of us would prefer to be...women. Women are much more fun than girls, and girls could potentially land a guy in jail, if you know what I mean .

SOME girls are worth the trouble. Trick is, you can't tell whether they're worth it until you check 'em out. So go for it!!!

In the words of Maurice Chevalier........


Thank heaven for little girls
For little girls get bigger every day!
Thank heaven for little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way!

Those little eyes
So helpless and appealing
One day will flash
And send you crashin' thru the ceilin'

Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all,
No matter where no matter who
For without them, what would little boys do?

Thank heaven...
Thank heaven...
Thank heaven for little girls!

If she turns out to be someone you don't like, you can dump her. It's not complicated. But first you have to do like Danno said and go for it to find out.

Well the worst she can do is take your heart, rip it out, and stomp on it. It happens to most of us. Go for it though. When you find the right one it can be heavenly! You'll never know if you don't venture out. Ask her out. Go for it!

And you could of course look for a girl that isn't into S&M.

I agree with East Hill and let me put it this way: Girls aren't worth the trouble, but women are.

You know, you are right!

But I was riding a black bike with yellow handlebars!



This is what I was wearing that day, although this is not the bike I was riding.

And in answer to the question--of COURSE girls (and women) are worth it .
