Well... you plan it out for

Well... you plan it out for days and days and days, and then you walk up when you finally get the balls to do it and it comes out completely different than you planned. Because you're nervous as fuck. And then the person says yes or no or "I'll think about it"

That's generally it. The worst that can happen is they say no, really, and then everything's just the same as before. So you have nothing to lose. Just be calm about it, and remember it's not such a big deal. It really isn't. Practice doing it to another friend, and that way you'll feel better about saying it to someone's face... and then when you say it to the actual person, just pretend they're your friend. Yep.

Ehhh that's all I got. Sorry.

Love and lampposts

don't worry about lampposts to much. that little bit of light they give off is enough to bighten up the darkest night, just like a little bit of love goes along way. One day every light will be on you and you won't have to look at the lamppost, because you'll be the light house, helping people fing their way through life.

First off, what is a gaf?

Beyond that, I always went by the notion that asking someone out is pretty easy, since the response is rarely something they have to think about. If they already know you and that you're gay, etc., then in the back of their head, it's already sorted out. Just like if someone asked you, "would you be interested in..." insert any name, in most circumstances, you would say yes or no.

So, when you ask someone out, you aren't really giving them some major decision to contend with, you are just getting an answer that is already a known quantity, just not to you.

That thinking has reduced my stress over the whole ordeal. Plus, the more you can reduce the time between wanting to ask someone out and doing it, you also spend less time building up expectations, hopes, and dreams where none may end up growing.

gaf is fag backwards. and the reason i asked about asking people out is because in not out, because i don't trust easily (trust issues). i think that about sums it up.

well sah...

you see when asking somome out, i figure theres a worst case scenerio and a best case

worst cse:they say know and its ackward till one of you tells a hilarious joke(hofully bout windex, and the ghost that lives in it 'FEAR FOR I AM WINDEXTER!) sorry got carried away there ;)

best case: he says yes, you guys fall in love, get married, move to a little quant house in victoria, canada, and adopt two children, one named tane (then one with blond hair) and one named william (the one with brown hair.)
