Girlfriend advice on TSR makes no sense? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I don't get it. For all the threads about not being able to get a girlfriend, the responses are always either:

    1) "Relax, the right person will come along eventually when you least expect it."


    2) "Bite the bullet and ask her out. She's not telepathic. You have to show her you like her".

    So basically people are saying it will happen without you trying, but also that you have to try in order to make it happen. Wtf?

    Peoples opinions vary ;-)

    i am a fresher in uni... and like its really hard.. i mean she laughs at my jokes but i dont know if shes being nice or if she genuinely finds me funny....most people say im a funny person although i never knw when i did say anything funny.....but anywho... ive invited her to hang out along with some frends...she flaked..but after tht we were still quite chilled..and we only met up and talked abit in lectures.... and today i asked her to hang out and stuff....today i went on the offensive and like asked her again.. and she was abit hesitant at first ...so i said @its just we never hang out...and i think youre a great person to hangout [email protected] and then she said well she really wanna do ice skating...am i up for it... and i said yes... but did i go overboard on the whole like asking her out

    But the responses are to different things. The first one is advice when there is no-one in the picture and the latter is for when there is. So you bite the bullet and tell someone when you like someone but if you're just generally wanting a boyfriend/girlfriend and wondering why you don't have one - then yeah, life happens in it's own way and you just have to wait till someone does come along.

    It means that when the right person comes along, which they do, you shouldn't let them get away.
