i was referring to the redhotsgtpeppers dude's comment.
not many people at all leave the house saying "i'm going to hang out with a guy who likes me and totally let him down passive-aggressively over the next few days!" this shit just happens. you think you like someone, you spend some time together, and realize it's not as great as you thought. it can take time to articulate these feelings because you WANT to like this whole relationship thing more but you just don't.
and it's not always personal. sometimes your personalities don't mix. sometimes people are not what you are looking for. it's ok.
and i concur, tommy. i haven't brought anyone water in a long time.
"She's just not that into you."
Maybe she is not really actively trying to discourage you or blow you off, but she's obviously not THAT interested, or she would make time to at least respond.
But seriously, we're talking Mario Cart challenge here. How hard can it be to send a text or pm a "plans have changed" or "changed my mind about the game"?
Unless "Mario Cart Challenge" means something else that I'm not aware of like " I want to marry and have your baby". Then I better have a long talk with my gamer son.
i guess being on this board usually means we all have time at work to text, but we don't always. nothing makes me more mad than being held to personal response times for non-emergency questions while i am working.
andf just being general; not talking about red
you should ditch the whole this-one-girl-doesn't-like-me-so-all-girls-must-be-crazy routine.
Or some people need to realize that if everybody of the opposite sex doesn't them then maybe the problem is not the people of the opposite sex.
My point was that she said she wanted to hang out, but bailed on naming a specific time, and when I asked her again a couple days later to confirm a tentative day/time, she didn't reply. That shit has happened a few times to me, and that's all I was asking about. I wasn't asking "hurr durr why don't girls like me nurr" it was simply to ask about why girls will say they want to hang out, then simply not return any forms of communication about it instead of just saying "no, I wouldn't like to."
Admittedly, yes guys do this shit too. I don't hang out with any guys that do this, but yes they are out there. I'm not condoning it or think it's good or anything, so girls are not the only ones to blame for this behavior.
And another thing, you would be frustrated if your platonic friends did this too.
"Hey, Platonic Friend #1, want to grab a beer tomorrow?"
"Sure, I would love to! I have to work that day."
"Okay, we can go after you get off work! What time would you be free to go?"
"Are we still going to the pub later tonight after you get off work?"
That shit would be irritating.
When it is in the context of a date, the dynamic completely changes. Some girls are too nice or too chicken shit to be honest. Either way, it's bullshit.
Don't take it personal but recognize that this may be the case. It won't be this way every time, but this girl may just . . .
My guess is she was interested in hanging out as friends and playing video games, but then you sent too many texts and she realized that maybe you actually just wanted to see her naked, something that she may not be up for, for whatever reason. Don't take it too personally, maybe she is interested in someone else, maybe she is shy, who knows. Just don't send her any more texts and maybe she will get less busy and try to coordinate something at a later date.
The medical marijuana is something I'm still trying to get accustomed to. I did have employees that would smoke during their lunch. They worked in Customer Service, so as long as they effectively got their work done, I turned a blind eye. But I realize I can't do that if it's a position that requires use of machinery. Would it be safe to ask for a medical provider's documentation stating that it's necessary to smoke? And if it is necessary, can I legally take the employee out of a position that may foster a safety risk? I remember sending an employee home because he admitted to me that he was on hydrocodone for an injury he sustained. He worked in the manufacturing shop, so I felt it was in his and the company's best interest that he didn't work while on the medication.
Robin, I think jobs where one's or other's physical safety could be at risk are handled a lot differently. I've worked in tech most of my career, so the exposures are only that they screw up at code or screw up with customers, or kill morale on the team when others realize the person is being allowed to come to work not sober.
I would hope that there is some sort of training available for HR professionals in states with medical marijuana to teach them how to deal with that. I have no idea. It's tough to know if you should say anything when there might be a real medical issue that you don't know about it.
Just read something that made me mad.
In the fashion industry, "plus sized" is considered a SIZE 6 AND ABOVE. "plus sized" models are usualy a size 6, 8 or 10.
What in holy hell. I'm a 4/6. So, I guess I'm plus sized now, guys. We can seriously never win in the world. What do people find acceptable? Size 0? Fuck everyone, man.
What the fashion industry standardizes for models, especially runway models, has nothing to do with reality.
Source? If you're citing the article I think you are, they're skewing information. What was said was that many agencies / jobs consider a size 6 to be too big for normal jobs. Samples are not usually made in size 6's anymore, and for runway and print jobs they go waaaay thin.
That's not to say that a size 6 is hired as a plus size model, she's just told she's too heavy for normal modeling jobs. Would have to put on some weight to do plus... I believe they're still "usually" around size 10-14 which is another story....
