For the past 2-3 months I’ve been smitten with this girl I met online. We’re both quite young (17) and would modestly say that we’re furious dorks. She really isn’t anything normal that’s for sure, her social life revolves encompasses meandering awkwardly around friends trying to keep up the normal girl visage.
Well, if you guys connect each other so well via sms and IM, it shouldn't be hard to keep the same connection in real life. Jokes are good icebreakers. And the fact that you both have WoW in common, it'll be easy to have stuff to talk about you both like. Obviously the conversation will need to change to a different topic, like her "friends" and family and hobbies, which probably you already know of...
>getting drunk with her and maybe even advancing on her?
I hope you don't mean that in sequential order. Drunken come-ons are the worst. And then you never know if it's something real or just the alcohol.
Seconded. I really, really hope you do not intend to get drunk as an "excuse" to hit on her. There really is nothing creepier than someone taking drugs or drinking and treating you in an entirely different, more intimate way, especially if he or she does not think of you regularly in that manner. Do you drink normally or is this something you're trying to do to better fit some kind of normal image?
Talk to her like you do normally. Don't get her drunk, and don't do anything hasty. If you're looking for just sex, then stop now.
Sex isn’t the ultimate goal I’m after but settling down in the ‘friend zone’ isn’t what I’m after either. To me, she’s the kind of girl I’d feel more confident and generally happier around and that’s just too much to risk giving up. Long distance relationships seem and probably are weak but I really want this to work.
