    Hey there everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your Yuletide festivities!



    Anyway, it just dawned on me that this semester has been a rollercoaster of awesome and pathetic, and I just wanted to share it, really! If anyone wants to add to these instructions, feel free So, here we go!

    1. Begin your second year fresh-faced and ready for action!
    This mainly applies to second years... you need to have a small circle of friends already for this to work.

    2. Exhibit a friendly, extroverted and laid back attitude. Talk to randomers. They will actually respond, and they may just become your new best friend!
    Places of particular interests may include bars, fast food restaurants, queues, etc.

    3. Join some more societies and events; branch outwards and try experiencing every way of life that university/college has to offer.
    Societal events will prove to you how small our world really is!

    4. On the subject of regular house parties, choose one venue, and only one.
    Acquiring renown in one area inevitably attracts it in others.

    5. Find a significant romantic interest. Do not act... yet.
    |This works best if s/he/it is the first in your current university/college career.

    6. If you haven't done already, establish friendships and connections within his/her/its inner circle, or as close to it as possible. Once again, do not act... yet.
    As a side, knowing that s/he/it had a bad relationship over the summer is a plus. Competing with more than one suitor is also a bonus.

    7. Tell one of his/her/its friends about your newfound infatuation, and how nervous s/he/it makes you feel. They will put you in awkward situations to get you to confess. Still, do not act............................. ....yet.
    At this moment in time, s/he/it may learn of your affections. Whether they reciprocate is of no matter.

    8. Avoid interest at all costs... for at least three weeks.
    If you bump into them, FFS, bump out!

    9. Play the 'fake bravado' card. They'll know something is up.
    They won't ask, but this is normal.

    10. Give it a week; it is time. Confess in a public place, ask only for a date, and do not take no for an answer.
    Make sure that friends of the romantic interest are vaguely present for optimum efficiency.

    11. Assuming they have agreed (reluctant is fine), proceed to feel like an idiot the next day and write a 500 word report on Facebook as a personal message, detailing how sorry you are. The second half can discuss how awesome the person is.
    Waking up while still intoxicated at 1700 hours while the interest leaving on the same day works best here.

    12. Freak out immediately after.
    Screaming is essential.

    13. Contact one (or more) of their friends to let your interest know that the message was a mistake, and that you aren't crazy, even though you are an absolute nutter.
    Typing 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' accompanied by expletives is particularly effective.

    14. Wait for three to four weeks, and let the carnage unfold.
    It will. It really will. :eek:

    Good times, good times.

    "Acquiring renown in one area inevitably attracts it in others" - this is an interesting aphorism, if slightly off topic to pull out on you. Did you mean to be sarcastic with this point as with the rest of your post or do you actually find this is true?

    Oh no, not at all, lol! But some people do, unfortunately... In fact, it's those people who more or less got my 'friend' in this situation!
