OK it seems we need to talk about relationships. As a lifelong geek I'd like to point something out. I can't talk about all of you but I can assume and extrapolate, and I'd like to hear your stories and input on this matter. I think we all longing to be with someone and often times feel loneliness on a deep level, the kind that comes out when we are inebriated or surfaces when we are dealing with what seems to be a very attractive person. You know the feeling, and you know you want to feel 'complete'. There are lots of guides and books online but they all deal with shallow stuff, like pickups and gameplay, etc. Some of that material is useful, but not for the long-term relationship that I look for. Lets be honest with ourselves here. We all have an idea of what we want out of our mate, and have a few candidates in mind. For whatever reason we have either not talked to them or are simply afraid to ask them, feel some kind of anxiety or depression or just assume that they are happy and carefree on their own and that you are not worthy. Thinking of that beautiful girl across the room sometimes gives you shame and an introverted guilt, perhaps, and maybe you just dont think she will like you and you are afraid of rejection. But what if, and I am not trying to sell a book here, what if you could get her/him? What if what you thought you knew about the world and your assumptions and stereotypes are wrong just this once? What if your conscious read on that person is wrong, but your subconscious desire is right? How would you approuch this person, get them to tell you in not so many words exactly what is going on here and who she is, what her deal is, desires, dreams and aspirations and if you are the sexiest stud muffin she has ever seen so far today? What if you just can't do it? Are you going to go silently into the Darwinian night and never be heard of again? I think it all starts with being fed up with your reality, and reaching the threshold where you say to yourself 'enough.' I think that day should've been yesterday if you read this far, and I think you owe it to yourself to keep reading and more importantly commiting to what I am about to tell you..
