I've had a good time reading this thread, so I guess I will contribute now... 

 

It will help shape the context of my story if you first know that I am female. :P

 

My senior year in college I moved into an apartment with 2 of my classmates and one of their friends. I needed a bed of sorts for my room, so my mom and I picked out a futon at a bed store down the road. It was scheduled to be delivered after my classes the following day. Maybe 10 minutes after I walked home from my classes the next day, two guys about my age arrived to deliver the futon. After a short while they were finished setting it up. I thanked them, they left, and I grabbed a sandwich from the fridge. Right as I took a bite I heard a knock at the door and it was one of the delivery guys with a delivery confirmation paper for me to sign. After I signed it, he was still standing at the door for a few moments so I thanked him again. As I was about ready to shut the door, he asked if I was interested in seeing a movie sometime. It took me completely by surprise -- I had a sandwich hanging out of my mouth while holding and signing the paper, looked disheveled from the wind on my walk home, and was a little sweaty from the summer heat. I was taken back, and felt flattered, so I thought I would give him a shot. He handed me his phone so I could put in my number. I realized after he left that I didn't get his name. He texted me shortly thereafter and we had a small convo about him noticing my DBZ DVDs before deciding on where to meet for a date. 

 

He picked me up the following Friday to go to a local game place where I met his friends and played games. We were both nervous, but had a good time. On the drive home he asked if I would be willing to date exclusively with him, and I thought that was awkward...  I told him that it was a little early to tell, but that I would like to hang out again. I barely knew him, but I did think he was worth getting to know better.

 

Over the next few months we would visit each other and see the occasional movie and things like that. I came to learn that he was a townie and generally didn't think things through...he put himself down a lot and liked to give unwarranted and needless apologies to me for "not being smart." The earlier dates had some pretty awkward and botched moments, but I was touched that he tried so hard to impress when we did meet. All the while I never developed feelings for him, and it was apparent that he developed feelings for me from the very start. Things weren't panning out for me. His work schedule was inflexible. He worked all day Tues to Sat with Sunday and Monday off. Weekday evenings he had a workout schedule and every Friday night he went to the games place, which I lost interest in. My schedule was open weeknights and the weekend. That pretty much left Sunday as the only day we both had off, and Sunday is usually the day college kids cram the week's worth of homework and laundry in. My major was graphic design, so I always had a ton of homework, but Sundays were typically the days my roommates and I would hole up and crank things out. The guy and I would see each other once a week at best, but we only lived 7 minutes by car apart. I stopped initiating conversation via text everyday to see if he would put more effort into maintaining our relationship. Over two months he let two weeks at a time go by without talking even once. Yet, when I eventually got the courage to meet with him to tell him I didn't develop any feelings for him and that things weren't working out, he seemed completely shocked. Afterwards, he started texting me regularly for a week asking me to reconsider. 

 

Months went by and I was close to graduating when I got a text out of the blue from him asking if I had any single friends. *facepalm*

 

And then a couple of months after I graduated, he asked me if I would take him back. I told him no. I graduated, moved 3 hours away, and I had less respect for him after his desperate attempts, especially considering that we were hardly anything more than a title (girlfriend, boyfriend) to each other, despite how he cited strong feelings for me. Two weeks after that he posted on Facebook about how happy and lucky he was such a beautiful girl would give him a second chance. He tagged some other girl and I deleted him from my friend list. He must have gone around to all his ex's asking for a second chance. Yuck.

That sounds pretty bad. When a person acts like that, the only "feelings" they have are purely sexual.

I would have just slam the door at the very beginning if I were you xD don't feel safe hanging out with a random guy...


And now that I believe one can't be "best friend" with opposite gender. There's a difference word for it, it's called "boy/girlfriend" T.T kind of hate myself for that D:

I got lost. I got out my iPhone and mapped it, it turns out I drove about 10 minutes too far on the highway. Great. 

 

We finally make it there, place our order and wait. I'm normally extremely outgoing, and she was a quiet type but funny when she talked. While we were waiting I just couldn't think of anything to talk about, my mind was blank. I don't ever plan out subjects to talk about because I normally never have a problem starting conversations with anyone. 

 

Our food finally comes, I got shrimp and scallop scampi and she ordered spaghetti. I finished mine off before she was even half done with hers, I didn't think I was eating fast but apparently she was a slow eater. How awkward, I just sat there messing with my straw wrapper while I waited for her to finish up. 

 

After dinner I planned on walking near the beach which was only a couple minutes away from the restaurant, but now it was rainy and cold (early fall). I wanted to see a movie after that but now that we weren't going to the beach it was WAY too early to go and wait for it to start, so we end up just going back to my grandparent's house (where I was staying) to watch a movie. That sounds strange but my Grandparents' house is pretty big so we didn't really see them. We went downstairs and started up the movie. We only watched a little bit and then we started making out.. I was surprised that even happened considering how terrible the rest of the date was going. 

 

So it was a terrible date, but it ended up being the beginning of a great relationship. She and I have been together for almost 4 1/2 years and have a beautiful baby girl together now :D 

Aww what a cute story! It's great when your feelings for each other are stronger than anything that might go wrong with your date.

 

Your situation is almost the reverse of mine... I'm a slow eater and I'm a quiet guy who likes really outgoing girls :o

 

And congrats on the baby :D

You're female? :blink:

 

...you date guys? :eek:

 

LOL, you must be the only straight female on head-fi... sort of like in an engineering class.

 

Seriously, it sounds like this guy only liked the fact of having a girlfriend, even though he seemed to have no interest in actually having in the relationship the things that actually matter in a relationship. But if he had his life together he probably wouldn't be delivering futons.

 

Oh, and I don't know about the sandwich thing, but never underestimate the sex appeal of the windswept, slightly sweaty look.

I was going to make a counterpoint here, but then thought about it and nope... most of the women I know on headfi are not into dudes.

I have to say I can corroborate that observation. I'm not going to ascribe any motivations or causes to it, nor am I going to draw any conclusions or form any generalizations about women and the headphone hobby. But, nonetheless, my experience accords.

And somehow I suspect TK's profile just set some kind of record for most viewed on HF.

Well put, speaking as a married Dude, my wife tolerates my audio craziness, but doesn't seem to get it, but then again few of my male friends are into it either.

 

Nice to have a female in the crew to offer a different perspective.

post #1076 of 1328

LOL. Most of the time I don't mention any personal details on forums because "there are no girls on the internet."

 

I always knew the male:female ratio was unbalanced. Didn't ever think about sexual preferences tho.

So is that the reason why most girls that I know rather waste credit on SMS or call or "Whatsapp" rather than going Facebook/Twitter? @.@ or are they just trying to test other's respond speed?

Just to share a short story. There's this dude in my class flirting real hard lately to the singles just because valentine's day is approaching...

You got me xD

People here in Brunei are going to have difficulties for this year's "Valentine's Day"! They better come up with better planning xP 12 noon - 2PM, all businesses must be closed down for Friday prayers, and no k-box xD most business usually starts at 10am in the morning, and on Friday, most shops close down at around 11:30am in preparation to go off at 12 noon. popcorn.gif

For me its basically happy singles day unless someone confesses to me, but I highly doubt it with the eccentric personality I have :D
