I can't stop thinking about this damn girl. I hardly even talk to her, I mean, I don't go out of my way to do so because I don't want to turn her off of me being potential boyfriend material. She's 19, and out of highschool, while I'm 17 and a Junior. I met her on Myspace originally because she saw me on a mutual friends top 8 or whatever. She noticed that we had similar interests, like the books we read, and that I played World of Warcraft while at my brother's house. Anyway, I hang out with her probably on average of once every week and a half.
You can ask her out! I do believe you have a chance! She is knitting you a scarf after all! And it was supposed to be a surprise, right?
You should try asking her out! :)
Go for it!!
Okay, but... Uh... how should I go about doing that? What kind of thing thing would a punk rock listening, zombie movie watching, video game playing girl like to do on a date? A first date in a small town no less.
Go out for dinner, then a walk or movie/video games at your house.
Play video games! Goto an arcade or something (and eat of course). Do something fun that's related to both your interests! Also this way it will be pretty easy to break the ice and whatnot since you will be playing/doing something and it won't get awkward at all. It's almost the perfect situation! You can do it! Keep us updated.
Actually, to come to think about it, every man has a chance with an every woman.
Simply that you are having a greater chance of success :P
>>6 is right!! You both share the same interests too so it probably wont be difficult on both your sides! And by doing so, I guess you can get to know her more~!
That sounds about right. I'd probably do the arcade thing for a bit (similar interests), then do something less casual, more romantic. For example, dinner at a nice restaurant, or you could walk around chatting a bit in the city, then later, arbitraily give her something that catches your eye (that she might like). It's a little odd, and it adds an element of randomness to a date. However, with timing, the date can become more interesting. Just show how much fun you are, and look for the moments you can make a memorable, you know? Also, ask her a few questions about herself. Get to learn more about her interests and maybe her family (though you got to phrase the latter well, or it may come off weird). For example, try something like this:
If she asks "About what?" just tell her "Like interest, hobbies, etc."
he'd feel a bit stupid if she then says "video games and knitting", since he already knew that
He is not suppose to know that she can knit. When she does tell him he could ask, "why did you decide to knit?"
Maybe you can ask her to teach you to knit. That way you can spend some time together and may find a new found love for the craft.
Actually, I had already known that she knitted. She had told me about it one time, I can't remember the exact circumstances. And I already know a little about her family (I met her brother before I met her, he's in my grade), and that she plays a lot of video games. I mean, I guess I had left this out earlier, but I've been to her house a couple times before with our mutual friend (she still lives with her family), and she had gone trick-or-treating with me, Mutual, and a few other friends, We pretty much stayed behind and talked to each other the whole time. And also hanging out on various other occasions, but we were never alone except for one time when I had walked her home from her work, and once when we were just playing video games together. So we're pretty much already friends, and she is such a good friend to everybody that making a scarf for a FRIEND wouldn't be anything new. I think Mutual already knows I like her. And since we're already friends, I mainly don't want to lose that by asking her out.
All hope is not lost yet. Next time and I mean next time ask her out. No excuses. If she is with a group of people, pull her to the side and ask her out. If you wait too long you won't have a chance.
> I dunno, she called last night, but I was out of town at a hockey game and told her I'd call her back. I've tried twice, but she hasn't picked up.
yeh keep trying.. she will answer at one point then you have your chance.. i have learnt that never to give up until you know for sure.. and right now she might just not be home when you are calling her.. so keep trying.. good luck
Don't over do the phone calling or else you will scare her away.
well once you get a hold of her and stuff then its all cool.. but yeh dont call her like every so often even tho you dont get a hold of her..
Well, I called her today after getting out of school while walking towards main street.
At first, we pretty much just talked about random things. She asked me how school was, I had said "you know, it's school", and I told her about the hockey game and so on. She had been in the parade on thanksgiving so I asked her how that went. It was pretty much small talk. Then she told me about the newspaper job she had gotten. I asked her what she was doing right then, and she was babysitting her brother of 6 and sister of... 2 or 3 I think. So then there was a couple seconds of silence and I just said, "Hey, I was wondering, do want to catch a movie with me or something some time?" Or something like that. and she said, "Yeah, definitely." and she continued to say that she was going to be busy theis week, but she would call and say when she could go out. She seemed really excited after I asked her out. I could hear it in her voice, and that she had said yes so easily. Then she had to get off the phone. It seemed almost like she had waited to hear that question before we stopped talking. I practically started dancing when I hung up.
I think it's pretty fair to say... you both wanted this to happen. Just let the date go smoothly, and you can expect to become a little more intimate with her. Good luck vgb.
Sounds really promising, just remember that this does not mean everything is going your way. There still is a long way to go. But for this "date". Good luck! I believe you can do it!
Sounds like you are on a path on a YOU'RE WINNER! ending.
no update ;\
Hey!, VideogameBoy... are you there?... yuhuu...
I don't think he will come back =/
He probably doesn't need us anymore =)
Well, I didn't really want to disapoint you guys with this update so I just put it off, but you guys apparently want to know.
So when I called her, which was I guess two weeks ago today, she had told me that she wouldn't be able to do anything that weekend. She said that her parents were out of town and they were going to leaves someone there to watch them or whatever. Which I believed because her parents are extremely strict and she also has two high-school aged brothers, and two very young siblings. So I said okay. The next day at school, I was very happy. I was so happy that other people even noticed, when they usually don't even notice anything about me. A kid in my math class asked me why I was having such a good day, so I said, "Well, I asked out a very pretty girl yesterday, and she said yes." so everybody was happy for me, and all the girls were like, "Aww that's so cute." and everything was good. Then, during class, a friend of mine said, "Hey, VGB, you asked out VGG, didn't you?" and I said, yes, that's who it was. So by this point a whole classroom full of people know who it was that I asked out, which normally would be okay, but you'll see the problem soon. So on Friday, I was waiting by a liquor store for my friends to pick me up and play some Halo or whatever, (the store is just down the street from where I live and they had called me while I was going for a walk) and this guy drives up. I know him, but I don't talk to him all the time, he goes to the Junior College in town, and he's friends with VGG and all the other older kids I hang out with. He gets out of the car and calls over, "Hey, aren't you going out with VGG?" and I said to myself, shit, how does this guy already know, so I responded, "Well, I asked her out, but we haven't gone out yet." and he said, "but isn't she your girlfriend?" I said, "no, not really, we haven't gone out yet. Who told you she was my gf?" and he said, "Everyone, they all said that you were saying that you guys were going out." Then he went inside and my friends picked me up shortly after.
;-; I'm really sorry to hear that VGG T_T I just recently read up on your story and from the post to last, I was eager to hear good news from you D: hugs
I hope you find someone new that you can love
I don't really appreciate your laughter.
I understand how it feels man, i pray to god that you find somebody who loves you the same way you love them and are worthy of you..
Man, that's rough. I just read this from beginning to end and I can completely understand your pain. However, I am sure that there will be someone out there for all of us, and someone out there for you. Don't give up, and give up on the video game girl until you are really ready to let go.
Have strength, comrade!
Aw shit, tough break, man.
There's this old Estonian saying which goes like "Don't shout before the night."(Ära hõiska enne õhtut).
sucks man, tough break. but luckily the only real damage is a bruise to the ego. not to mention you are a bit wiser.
VGB, we are here for you and we will support you all the way whenever you find the next VGG!
We know you can!
>>34 Sorry dude... I've been there, you'll find someone better.
Hmm, it might be the time at which I'm wrighting this (4 am). But the feeling I got when reading your explaination was the fear and discomfort VGG felt when she got to "know" that you bragged about her behind her back. I am sure it wasn't ment as bragging, and it might not even never had occured. But however, that is what had reached her ears. Her not coming online or trying to keep you away from her might very well be her sign that she want to negatate the rumor. Maybe because thats not how she wants it to start? I know I am overly optimistic, but it might very well be the case.
you are being optimistic. it is best if he ends it and thus ending this thread.
Well, I hung out with her and some other friends tonight. And it was nice just being friends with her again. So I'm not going to fuck that up now. I'll go with the ending it idea.
Okay, so, some new information may lead me to fuck that up now. I was told that the reason she was avoiding me was because she was being made fun of by all our friends, and that she actually really likes me. Well, I plan on just asking her out again, and telling her that I don't care about all the resulting drama of us dating, and that if the others can't handle it, then they should deal with it themselves.
Fantastic! Go for it! You the Video Game Boy! Congrats!
cracks his fingers and sits straight up
well , lets see how this turns out...
This time do tell the results. Don't make us wait D:
yay! 4-ch might have a success story!!! go for it man!
Don't jinx it, I've been waiting for one since MSN Otoko. D:
Okay, so I called VGS eariler, and it will be her first day of work at this antique store tomorrow... Anyway, I called her and we are going to eat lunch together tomorrow.
Well, there was a blizard so I didn't meet her for lunch, and I haven't talked to her yet today.
well, I called her, and we might hang out tomorrow if she doesn't have to work again because of the snow.
Is this enough updates for you guys?
Nooooo, please continue... I read you some times to the week. What happen with Vide Game Girl????
(ﾟДﾟ≡ﾟДﾟ) WHERE ARE YOU!?
My guess is that he's waiting for something positiv to happend,the he will come rushing :D
I really hope he comes back soon...
I mean, he's like our own little 電車男 isn't he?
I bet we'll call him Video Game Man if this works out. :P
Good luck, VGB. I just read your story, and it's interesting. Small town troubles like that are always bothersome when people start taking pride in hearing rumors, like the "HEY GIRLFRIEND OF MINE!" guy did.
watching this thread for a while now, lets see what unfolds or so...?
I like his story, hope it turns out good.
Good Luck VGB, keep it real for the people and VGG..
Come back to usss
It's better than the Benson thread (o lawdy).
I just read the thread completely and I can totally relate to your girl of interest.
You probably already know this by now, but whatever happens between you, don't brag about it to everyone because it'll scare her off. This is mainly because of your age difference.
i've experienced this last night... omg... your story is definitely the same as mine!! until today, i still can't stop thinking about him... :(
VIDEO GAME BOY COME BACK THIS INSTANT!
