@beezus. are you on hormonal birth control or have you recently switched brands? i just switched and was a mental bitch, what helped me (since going off it is not the right choice for me now) was switching the time i took it to the MORNING instead of the evening. Now I take my rage to work and write kick ass emails with it instead of directing it at my gentleman friend in the evening time.

@halfheartedyoga @Porn Peddler @ Danzig! Maybe these are different ladies? Anyway its 3AM where I am Danzig, so take my ramblings with that in mind.

WITH REFERENCE TO PEOPLE KNOWING YOU WANT TO KISS THEM
(a) Do you think they want to kiss you?
*Please provide more information so we can best answer*
or
(b) Are you asking because now you're worried an awkward situation has been created?

If this person is worthy of your imagined kisses, they can handle that knowledge that you want to kiss them, even, I daresay, if they aren't interested back. I guess if you're asking because now you're worried there's an awkward situation, there can only be an awkward situation if 2 people agree it's awkward. If you plow on with buying your coffee/playing settlers of Cataan/whatever as if everything is normal, then you can help the other person know its all good.

Basically, awkward happensYou can't control how others react to shit but you can do your level best to show (or pretend) that things aren't awkward for you, if needed. I mean, we're all just fallible fragible people trying to make it you know? Plow through the awkward. (*I can provide stories if needed).

W/R/T ASKING PEOPLE OUT.

I (a woman) have been asked out once. Smoothie did it on gchat. But when I have my sites on a man, usually I ask him to coffee/drinks/an exhibit/dinner depending on how well I know him and the norms of the city we're in. Usually I try to ovary up and do it in person, but lots of times I do it in an sms. Sometimes I get rejected - at the date stage or um later. Plow through the awkward. Onwards!

@Helvetica Nothing ventured nothing gained! Just send a nice (SHORT, SHORT) message along the lines of. "Hey - we met the other night at X. If you're single and interested, would love to meet again at y. If neither - no worries!" [Reword to fit your own self/voice].

On Interview With a Virgin: Scarlet

@iceberg here is my synopsis: friends of friends either
a)on business trips or
b) at destination weddings.

Ideal combination of pre-vetted as semidecent humans (as they are friends of your friends) and the relation, such as it is, is timebound.

@KatieBarTheDoor you rabidly say yes to all invitations. you have a party at your house (order in food if you don't wanna cook). you volunteer. you remember the flirtation skills that got you a husband and then deploy them on the general population.
