This past summer was my first summer after graduating from college. I've been bumming out at my folks place as I wait on a gov't job. During the summer I met up with and started dating a girl I went out with in high school for about 2 weeks. Over the summer we ended up dating for about 5 weeks. This was a girl I'd always wanted another chance with, and I got it. I'm 23 and this was the most serious relationship I'd been in to this point. I didn't date at all in college. It was a lot of firsts, first kiss, first make out, first sex, etc. At the end of summer she moved about 3 hours away for school and the next week I spent the weekend at her place, this was the first time we slept together. A week later she broke up with me, telling me she didn't feel the way about her that I did. Truthfully I had been thinking more longterm at that point, I really thought she was the one, we just got along so well and understood each other, or so I thought. She said she wasn't torn up when I left and I got the feeling she wasn't falling in love with me and she wasn't going to. Unfortunately I think I already had. We tried the friends thing but eventually she didn't have time for me, got tired of me, and we had a fight and now don't talk.
hey man that's good to hear that you will be going out with a girl 30 minutes away. 30 minutes isn't bad at all!
well your issue lies in that 2 months and your gone. Hopefully the girl knows that so both of you can plan accordingly if you 2 get serious of course.
Thanks, I really appreciate it. I'd definitely let anyone that I thought I would be dating know that I'm eventually going to be gone. Really I just want to have fun and be happy, probably the same as anyone else.
OP here, not to completely change topics, but as this is all about moving on from my ex, anyone have advice on meeting strangers? I can understand say, a cute girl in a bookstore, ask her for reading suggestions etc... But what if its a situation like where she's an employee somewhere, like a hostess at a restaurant? I can never think of ways to approach girls in those situations that isn't stupid/creepy as hell.
As long as you think it's creepy to approach attractive girls who show some interest (eye contact, etc), in whatever situation, no specific tips will help you.
