I work in one of the smaller branches of my school library system. Since it's small, I have the advantage of recognizing most of the patrons who come in with any degree of regularity. Lately, I've been noticing a certain boy every time he's there when I'm working.
Haha, it's going nicely for both of u :)
To tell u the truth, being a guy, I don't really think its a problem when girls not being in their best appearance. In fact, seeing a girl a bit sweaty, or a lil tangled hair at times can be nice. It shows their natural beauty, not in an artificial way :))
You weren't looking your best? Pah, for me, at least, I like girls more when they look slightly disheveled. It's more...authentic.
He's obviously smitten. Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.
The library is not all that good a place to flirt because I actually have to do work while I'm there. But I can't really complain because my working there is the only reason I've ever even talked to him
If you have to help him again, why don't you suggest that he take you out from coffee as thanks. Don't sound smug or anything, or that'd be a serious turn off.
And are you sure his very gay friend isn't his very gay BOYfriend?
Sometimes seemingly gay guys are metrosexuals.
To be honest, asking him out sounds way too scary of a thing to do. Especially if he turns me down, it'll be completely awkward because I'd still see him. Mostly I'm just a great big wimp. D:
"No, this man is gay. I've never seen a more flaming man in my life."
You could always wait for him to make a move. Just drop some semi-subtle hints.
I'm actually at the very end of a rather serious relationship with someone else, and right now I don't really want anything super serious at the moment. Just someone to spend time with, flirt with, and perhaps have pale, nerdy sex with. ;)
So I just got of of my shift a the library. It was a really slow day; I think about 10 people in all came in all day. I hadn't really expected the boy to come in today, but five minutes before closing he walked in and asked me to help him do something on the library website.
Don't worry, Library Girl, I'm pretty sure you're among alot of us when you say that you look too much into his actions.
Though it does look like he's really trying to be around you more, perhaps in an effort to get to know you! Maybe he's mustering up the courage to ask you to go out for a coffee or something, who knows.
I think Library Girl, you should just admire that gay guy. Because I think, that these people tend to make people around them admire them, but when you make your first move, they started to feel intimidated. They don't like it when they know that a girl like them. So, in order to make things more interesting, you should just play around with him, but don't ever tell him how you feel. That will scare him off. Give him some time, and sooner or later, he'll be chasing after you. (Just an opinion though)
That actually sounds like an entertaining plan. (Which conveniently doesn't involve me doing anything different.)
I wish to be the library boy.
>>13 Not necessarily a sound plan. Remember, not all guys don't like to be pursued, and some are afraid to be the pursuer.
Is he aggressive/outgoing or is he more withdrawn?
He's totally interested in you. Coming from a guy, his actions would mirror myself if there was someone I liked. I bet he hung around outside the library before closing, fighting with himself to go in or not.
Want to be a little more aggressive? Next time he checks out a book, do your usual routine but write out your number on another sheet of paper and tuck it into the book before you hand it to him, in plain sight so he sees it. Then say: "In case you want anymore help, give me a call" then smile.
From the sounds of it, this really isn't the right time for you. This boy seems like a decent enough guy, and you seem to connect with him well enough. It's just... you have too much going on right now in your relationship life. You might just be on some form of rebound, y'know, like you said, wanting someone you can't have.
It's been a week since I last saw him; I think he may have just been in the library for schoolwork after all. Which is okay - since I haven't seen him lately, the crush has been fading.
I did break up with my boyfriend a few days ago, which has been a bit of a relief. I can tell I'm a little fucked up at the moment, though. I'm definitely doing the whole rebound thing, and I'm currently really scared that I'm going to do something that will mess my life up. (For example: kissing one of my best friends. I half want to, but I know that would mess EVERYTHING up.)
These kinds of stories are why I'm moving from a being a passive observer to being a more proactive guy who asks girls out.
Good luck Library Girl! Hope everything works out
Am I too late? Oh noes, anyways its really too bad time is running out huh Library Girl... Both me and you lol finals are such time sponges. Anyways I was going to say that if you do see him again next time, maybe some off topic small talk would make things easier. Until next time we hear from you! ^_^
Last night was hard. At 1am, just as I was falling asleep, my ex-boyfriend's best friend called. Ex-boyfriend had missed the last bus home, and needed a place to stay for the night. I sighed deeply, said yes, and got up in order to make up the couch for him.
Relationships are too complex to define as either friendship or 'boyfriend-girlfriend', etc.. At what particular point does someone go from being a ompanion to a lover? What exact point in time? I don't like any of these ideas of friends, lovers, acquaintances, etc. I thought I should say this. Not necessarily specifically to you, but it applies to everyone.
>At what particular point does someone go from being a companion to a lover?
I've been pondering this recently. If someone figures it out, let me know.
>>Ex-boyfriend had missed the last bus home, and needed a place to stay for the night.
lol, yea rite
We'd just started living together when he quit his job and decided to join the army, leaving me in charge of finding a new room mate. Now, I really hate what the military in my country is doing, so him joining the army made me very unhappy. I told him that I wasn't going to stay with him when he left... we stayed together for a few months, with things just getting worse and worse. He wasn't making any money, and the money I got from my job wasn't nearly enough. I wasn't eating enough, as I was trying to save money for rent, I was doing horribly in school, and he kept accusing me of not supporting him or caring about him any more. We had some pretty dramatic fights, but somehow stayed together, even though we were both miserable.
Yay Library Girl is back! I'm proud of you for staying strong despite what happened! I don't really know what to say about your relationship due to my lack of experience, but I could be emotional support ^_^
Anyways with the semester ending its to be expected that things have been slow relationship wise as all the slackers within us are trying so hard to catch up.
Wow, your boyfriend needs to sort out his priorities. I'm assuming from his attitude he's still quite young. It was the right thing to break up with him. He apparently knows no loyalty. He couldn't keep his job, and accused you of being at fault. He also cheated on you, and even after that was over, he still said he would consider getting that girl even while you were together. He wasn't trying to support the relationship at all.
Hey everyone! I don't know if anyone cares any more, but here's an update with what's been happening in my little slice of the world.
I didn't see Glasses Boy at all over the break, but that doesn't surprise me at all. The new quarter starts the day after tomorrow, though, so hopefully I'll see him again.
You're back! Holy crap!
Keep us posted on Glasses Boy, if he returns during this quarter, maybe it's further indication that he's not just there for school stuff.
I do know a lot of boys who I suspect would like to date me (or at least sleep with me, haha). But in every case, there is a big reason why it wouldn't work.
Glasses Boy has returned! Well, sort of.
I didn't have classes today, but I had to go to campus anyway to pick up some books from another branch of the library. My roommate came along too, since we were planning to go roleplay with some other friends afterwards. We were walking around campus, and I was joking about how I don't really have any friends at my school. He said, mostly jokingly, that he'd get me the number of anyone I wanted to be friends with - then started asking me if I wanted the number of boys we walked by. Pretty normal behavior for the two of us, really.
awwrh hugs you'll probably see him again!
Oh god I think I might be falling for the boy on the internet. FUUUUUCK. D:
We talk online a lot now. He's a really good guy - the sort of person who, when you first meet him comes off as an entertaining asshole, but then you realize he's actually one of the nicest people ever.
Something happened a couple days ago that made me remember this thread. This will probably be one of my last posts in it or with this name, since it really isn't relevant any more.
See, I met someone else. Someone who I really, truly can have, right here and now. No waiting, no distances, no being unsure if he wants me or not - it's awesome!
<waiting for next post>
The next day's movie night went well. I started getting a little worried, because he kept laughing at the things I said in a way that really made me think he was interested in dating me. I was still very clear that I didn't want to date him.
look forward to the continuation of your story ^_^
aw... jealous anon grr
Who of, me or him? ;)
The next day was a Friday, which is a day I don't have classes but he does. Because of this, I went to visit the school he and several of my other friends go to. We had a really good time cuddling between classes and hanging out with the girl who introduced us. After his classes and work finished, we went ice skating with her and her church group. Neither of us are religious at all, but ice skating is fun, hehe.
Library Girl x D&D Dude.
This is so awesome it almost looks like a made-up story.
Hehehe. He's not D&D Dude in my head, though. He's a supervillain. I just know that one of these days he'll show his true nature and tie me to the train tracks.
clap clap clap clap clap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i gave you a standing applause!!!!
thank you so much for the story~
>joking about robots and reanimated corpses
I do that all the time. What do you mean it's not normal? :(
