I'm going to keep this short, because... I am crushed on time (people just got home, so it's sort of annoying right now.) The first thing, is that I have just had my first "skype" reveal, so to speak. I have been talking to this guy, and we both expressed that we would like to start dating, but it comes to find out: I F-Ing hate... well, him. Talking to him on the computer was fine, but as soon as we started video chatting, I felt like he opened a can of "Zap, now you're gay!" Don't get me wrong. I understand that there are feminine guys, and that there are masculine guys. I myself fall somewhere closer to the former. However, to suddenly think of someone as more masculine than you, then suddenly have them break out and go from nerdy gamer, to drama queen (yes, I'm talking about theatre) in less than 60 seconds in a skype call, I am lost for words. I tried not to be rude, but I really couldn't... connect with him, so to speak. However, this has put me in an odd place, as I am not sure what I should do... Should I tell him that I would rather me and him go our own ways, or should I give him a few more chances and hope that he grows on me? --- --- --- My second part of this advice wanted, is about relationships... well, in general. The last time that I came to this part of Iwaku, I came to talk about this very topic. I was VERY dramatic about it, however, and I over exaggerated for the most part. To anyone who saw my first post in this side of Iwaku: I was wrong, but I predicted the future! To those who are all like "What the fudge is he talking about?" Well, I'm talking about the fact that: - I have lost all of my friends, since they DO NOT want to respond to me. - I have lost all connections with romantic interests (aside from the guy in the above) - I feel that pushing people away isn't good, however; I feel like everyone else is doing it to me anyways. So... I suppose that I'm looking for help on how to reach out to my contacts? And before you say anything, I KNOW that they see my messages, and I KNOW that they are ignoring them. I don't spam them: I only send one message every other day that they're online, just to make sure that they are safe and stuff.
