I've noticed the increase in threads being made about problems with relationships and dating. Now, I have no problem with the subject matter. No, my problem is with the amount of threads people are creating about it.

Judging by all these threads being made about the same thing, it's safe to say it's inevitable for these questions to be asked; and since the answers to these relationship/dating questions are generally very similar, putting all the questions in one thread saves time and posting.

No, this is not a thread where you specifically ask me for advice; I don't know very much about this subject. I'm simply the guy who has created the thread so you can post your questions for anybody to answer.

So if you have a question about dating or relationships, or anything along those lines, ask it here, wait for someone to reply here, and don't make a new thread about it!

Maverick, I Thank you. And I've been trying, it's just rough you know? plus it sucks a little extra 'cause now I get to see "this Cody fellow" every morning while we wait for the bus.(While they make out)
And I just now realized you commented on my birthday!(yeah, she broke up with me exactly one week from my birthday)

And although I Live in Wisconsin My family(on my mom's side) Came from Mississippi, so it is rather relevant

Anyone know how to get someone to hurry up and make a Skype without sounding too pushy?

@daleks
"Can you get a skype soon?"
Add teasing and/or slight flirting if you're comfortable, I.e
"Hey, I really miss you, can we skype?" Or whatever...

That is pretty much what I have done pick, but it has been weeks now! If I get too pushy my plan will not work. Plus I just have to wait on my patience. But if I am too patient it might be too late by then. *Starts hyperventilating * O god! I am caught between a rock and a hard place. This will never work out. *Breaks down*

"Yo b*tch lemme get yo skype right now."

Just.... I dunno add teasing. Like say you want her to hurry but I a someone what joking way that can be taken slightly seriously. That doesn't make sense...
"You took too long to make a Skype, I died. RIP" or something.

While I do love a good blackmail, she finally got around to making one. So there isn't a problem anymore.

Because he leaves forever every few months or so. Then he comes back after a few weeks.

So I'm in college now, which means I'm surrounded by thousands of girls around my age every day. Naturally, after three months, it's almost inevitable that there'd be one that I'd have some desire to be more than friends with.

As it turns out, there is such a person, and I think there might be the slight possibility that she may have some hint of a vaguely similar desire. But if there wasn't some kind of problem here, I wouldn't have posted anything in the thread, but this is such a major obstacle that it deserves it's own line, isolated from both this block of text and that which follows it:

I've never successfully asked a girl out.

Yes, you heard me correctly. If you recall from earlier pages, I have had girlfriends before. Your guess is as good as mine how that happened. I didn't ask any of them out. It just happened. However, with this new girl, I can tell I'll have to approach the situation in the more conventional way, as, at least as far as I can tell, she isn't desperate, clingy, or just plain strange. I came close to closing the deal about a week ago--details on the story only by request--but the music was too loud and I basically blew that chance.

I want to ask this girl out. The problem I face is, I have no idea how or when to do it.

You just have to ask her (do it when you two are alone / not next to anyone). Don't overthink it and be confident, ask her to do something on Friday or Saturday (weekends are usually best). Movie and dinner, etc. At the close of the conversation you can say something like "it's a date, see you then" or nothing. She should know it's a date without you outright saying it.

Movie and them dinner. Work the best. You get a shared experience to talk about.

I appreciate the advice you both have given me. There's still one teensy-weensy problem, though: I still haven't gotten a chance to talk to her alone at any point within the past few weeks. Her friends are always nearby when I see her.

But I'll let you all know if that changes/how things work out if anything happens at all. Winter break is closing in, which means I basically have a deadline.
