Allright. I’ve pretty much gotten rid of my annoyingly gregarious and excessively silly alter ego (in real life) and tried actually… I don’t know- acting myself. The problem is, I found out when I’m not hiding behind a screen or a stupid persona, I’m very shy. This is not something that I anticipated, quite honestly. I thought that I really WAS a foolish twit… but it turns out that I “merged with my cover story” as Burroughs once put it.
Now I really don’t know how to approach people at all. I managed to be able to talk to one guy who is a roleplaying geek (REAL roleplaying, you console gaming nuts ;p)- but thats about it. I guess if I game with him, I’d meet people- but thats obviously not all.
I wanted to talk to someone specific of the opposite sex. Yeah. About a week or so after deciding that I would never ever ever ever get involved with anybody again in my life due to various stupid reasons, I became infatuated with a girl (most likely for equally stupid reasons, but not really… I like short green eyed girls, stupid me). So… uh… how could I maybe talk to her without saying something completely stupid.
((an example of a conversation with her in our English class:
Me: Uh… are those contacts?
Her: No, they’re my real eyes.
Me: Uh… well they’re really cool.
She smiles “Thanks”))
Another thing: I know she is flirting with me, but I am absolutely convinced she is fucking with my brain rather than it being genuine flirtation. Probably just the bullshit argument “oh, who would like me, blahblahblah” and such. So yeah- how could I like… uh… find out… and stuff.
Oh- and just learning how to approach other interesting people, not necessarily for the same kinda stuff, would be great. There are some people in my college who intrigue me, that I wish to approach and ask questions, but I think that they’ll think I’m stupid or whatever. Heh. I guess I’m not great at making friends or whatever.
EDIT: Oh boy, angst filled rambling… just like my first posts.
