That was really enjoyable to read.
Believe it or not, I was trying to illustrate the point that scatterbrained splatterings of thought transferred immediately into text does not make for easy reading, and runs the risk of the subject matter being lost in the minefield of all the surrounding unneccessary piffle.
Just to take the personal stuff out of all this and to further illustrate my point, here is a straight copy/paste from another thread that has appeared today, and underneath I have done my best to re-write it and present it in a more readable form.
"I met this girl who does haircuts and i know most girls tend to flirt with their customers anyway but after a few times of meeting her and getting to know her. I asked her out and she tells me that she has a boyfriend and i am like okay and i replied with whoever he is he is very lucky to have you and continued on to still schedule a time to see her as if nothing happend . Next time I see her I have fun with her make fun of her and have a blast and been remembering what she told me so that way i can have conversations with her because generally i would afterwhile not come up with anything to say. Next time i see her she is more flirty with me and was touching me a lot more coming up with nick names for me, more gigily. The last time i saw her she was giving me more compliments and even told me that i was handsome , twice as flirty with me and much more gigily and i mean she was like a completely different person than normal and i figured it must be sign that she is single and wants to go out and i asked her out again but she tells me that she still has a boyfriend after that moved on to schedule a time to get a haircut again as if nothing happened and ended on a laughing comment. and not once in all of our conversations she never mentions her boyfriend and she keeps on letting me get haircuts with her. Now i havent dated a few years so i am a little rusty to know if woman likes you or want to go out with you but i mean i am not stupid with the average girl i have asked out she always got awkward or if she had a boyfriend she would mention him in the conversation to let me know in some way she was with someone. I am really confused is this girl testing me and would i have to call her out on it to tell me the truth? or is she manipulating me and toying with me?"
Hello, I wonder if someone could help me with my problem?
I have my hair cut regularly by this same girl and cannot work out the mixed signals I keep getting from her.
From the start she has joked and sort of flirted with me, as most girls do when they cut a customer's hair, but after a few appointments I felt that we really clicked and took the decision to ask her out.
She told me that she had a boyfriend, so I told her that I thought he was a lucky guy and changed the subject before things got awkward.
At my next appointment with her, I was relieved to find that we got on really well and I made a mental note to remember what we'd talked about, so that I could think of more things to say when I saw her next.
Over the course of the next two or three appointments, I noticed that she was getting more and more flirtacious, touching me more often, telling me I am handsome, giving me nicknames and giggling a lot. A totally different person to how she normally is, I suppose.
I took all this as a sign that she was now single, so tried asking her out again. She once again informed me that she had a boyfriend.
I have since had several more appointments with her and not once has she ever talked about her boyfriend. I may be a bit rusty when it comes to asking girls out but I'm certainly not stupid, so I have several things to ask regarding all of this, as I am totally confused.
Is she testing me? If so, should I persist with this so I can eventually get to the truth?
Or is she just being manipulative and simply toying with me?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
