...I can still hear you when you drown.

--

Hee hee hee - I make myself laugh!



So whats going on?

On the booze front, I have not been perfect but I have been better. I know this isn't good enough, but am going to keep trying. That's all I can do, keep trying.

On the more amusing news front I have (DA DAAAAHHH!) met a new girl. She is without doubt the best looking girl I have ever met, absolutely beautiful. I know her through work but would never have considered approaching her - shes too young, too pretty, out of my league. However, upon mentioning to a mutual friend how lovely I thought she was, the mutual friend shocked me by replying - 'she likes you too, you know'.

I was extremely surprised but decided to test the waters and invited said lady and a couple of her friends along to some drinks after work on Friday (I know, I know). I was relatively good, managed to only have a few bottles of beer (I know, I know) and ended up sitting next to the lady in question at the end of the evening, having a really good chat and a laugh.

The next morning I woke up next to her. Oops. She'd come back to mine with a couple of other people and without anything happening, we'd ended up sitting up till about 4am at which point, we'd stumbled into the spare bedroom, crawled under a blanket and slept. When we woke up, at about 11, she immediately looked mortfied and yes, you've guessed it: shes got a boyfriend. She really likes me, is unhappy with him but they've just bought a place together. I immediately stated that I didn't want to be the guy that splits someone up (even though secretly in my head I was thinking exactly that) and we parted company, with a very strange feeling in the air.

I really like her and am old enough to know its not always so straightforward as meeting someone you like when you are both single. But, I really don't want to be a snidey bastard and therefore won't see her again unless she's single which probably means she will stay with him.

I don't know how I keep managing to pull it out of the bag, I really don't. I'm special.

Hmmm by Breaker (4.00 / 2) #1 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:18:03 AM EST
They live together, and she was out all night with no comeback?


I think there was some comeback.... by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 1) #2 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:19:58 AM EST
...that I wasn't privvy to. She didn't look overjoyed at the prospect of getting home in the morning.

You've already gone part of the way by jump the ladder (4.00 / 4) #4 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:20:58 AM EST
to split them up anyway as she was very obviously trying you out as an alternative. If she wasn't interested then she wouldn't have gone out nor spent the night with you.

I'd keep your options open but ultimately it's up to her. Stay in contact but keep an eye out for an easier situation.

Yeah, am going to play it cool (ish)... by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:23:18 AM EST
...I really don't agree with deliberately trying to split people up but I definitely think she isn't happy for exactly the reasons you have mentioned. Will try to stay friends and see what happens.

When will something straightforward happen to me?

Highly desirable women tend to have boyfriends. Or there's some complication to why they haven't (eg: totally nuts, a lap dancer etc)

I know, I know. by Alice Pulley (2.00 / 0) #53 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 05:45:49 AM EST
But life isn't always that straightforward and its pretty easy to judge when you don't know someone. If anything does happen with her, then I just have to believe she wants to be with me and trust her the same way I trust everyone else I care about not to hurt me. I have a feeling this all may be a moot point though.

Just bought a place by nebbish (4.00 / 8) #8 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:29:30 AM EST
With someone you don't want to be with - it's amazing how often that happens, I think it's a way for the person who is about to be dumped to hold onto their partner without committing to marriage.

Fuck it mate, split them up, all's fair in love and war.

Although, if you do end up with her, you'll constantly be paranoid everytime she's 20 minutes late home, thinking she's off with some other bloke.

You'd be able to tell her she had to split up with the boyfriend before the two of you got together.

Back in reality, I believe some of the USian studmuffins are happy homebreakers, so why not take tips and reassurance from them?

Play it carefully, but go ahead. That's my sage advice.

You can only split them up by Cloaked User (4.00 / 6) #10 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 01:42:27 AM EST
If she wants them to be split up, in which case it's most likely going to happen sooner or later. That leaves the only real question as whether or not it's going to be you that she leaves him for.

Or, look at it this way. You remain the perfect gentleman, the upshot of which is that he's happy, she's unhappy, and you're unhappy. Or you "steal her away from him", in which case you're happy, she's happy, and he's unhappy. If you look at it purely from a profit and loss perspective, the choice is even clearer!

Any time now, there'll be a plane crash on your house, and then you'll know you're in a soap opera.

Bad luck and whatnot. Doing the right thing sucks sometimes, I guess. Maybe if you ask Dr T nicely, he'll go up and split them up for you, then you can pick her up on the rebound.

She's a slut who concealed the existence of her boyfriend, and you're a cuckhold and a reflexive liar.  Neither of you will ever get, or deserve, anyone better, and so you should put her on the mortgage immediately.

That's possible by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 3) #41 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 03:51:34 AM EST

The desire to get to know people before sleeping with them is never good. That's why baby Jebus invented CONDOMINIUMS!

In all seriousness, how devoted to her boyfriend is she, when she has apparently let *someone* know she was interested in you, then stayed up til the wee hours with you before crashing under the same blanket. I know if I was the boyfriend, I'd be having HR type up a pink slip for her *right now*.

Then again, is someone who would treat her current boyfriend like that someone you'd really consider a relationship with? Ultimately, she'll likely continue to treat SOs like that indefinitely, though, granted, people can actually change, given proper circumstances.

I think what I'm trying to say here is you don't have to marry the woman to LET HER TOUCH YOUR WIENER! Waggy knows this is true. Check with him.

I know... by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 3) #46 Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 04:26:26 AM EST
...I would also not be impressed were I her SO, but in fairness, lifes not always that straightforward and meeting someone you like can happen when you are already with someone. I can't expect her to completely upend her life on the basis of one evening though, so maybe being friends for a while will at least show some commitment on my part.

On the other hand you could be absolutely right, she may just have fancied some hot AP action and I have blown my opportunity with the finest looking woman this side of Christendom.

Either way, I end up with another dose of regrets. FUCKING GREAT.

As with 'tinkle', or 'pee-pee' (names I heard, with aghast, members of the extended family teaching their children), it sounds like something a feminist would have come up with in order to put it back in its box (NPI). That's no way to raise a nation of warriors.

Which is a bit like winning the lottery and giving all the money away.
