This story doesn't have an ending yet, I'm afraid. And I think it's about to get weirder. Meeting time 5 pm today.

OK, here goes, and frankly it still works in this thread because your suggestions might be helpful.

There's this chick I'm absolutely crazy about, and she's clearly into me but a bit of a flake. We've been playing games, basically acting too cool for school and its gotten us nowhere. Finally I lay down the law and tell her to put up (not necessarily out) or shut up. It works, and she starts texting me non-stop, let's hangout let's do this and that type of stuff. Finally it's Pop MTL, a five-day music festival everyone knows I do a lot of work for (i.e. you're going to run into me, guaranteed), so she's buying up tickets to shows I'm recommending on my Twitter and even showing up at my place of work (she interned there) at the precise time I make my weekly visit. I tell her I like her and she says it back.

It's on I reckon, so I tell her let's do Pop MTL the first night, and considering the shows end at 3 AM, things tend to get pretty hot. I'm at my usual hangout munching on a burrito when she starts texting, wondering where I am. She shows up almost instantly, her friend in tow (who doesn't like me at all). She's bubbly at first but soon starts looking at the door. Finally she hits the can and her friend tells me I should probably leave soon, as things are about to get ugly. Sure enough, some bearded fellow walks in and says he's my crazy chick's date for the night. She emerges from the can and immediately starts giggling like a school girl over this dude. I tell her I'm leaving and she genuinely looks hurt, tells me to stay. WTF?

I ditch 'em but find myself in their company later in the evening. She's trying to drag her new boytoy back to her lair, but the moron actually says they should follow me to the next venue. I start cracking jokes at his expense only she gets, and she's less than amused. I'm with my photographer, so naturally I'm chatting with her and ignoring the other two. Pretty soon though crazy chick is trying to get my attention. Now we're at the next show and I'm being my over-the-top schmoozing self, hitting on every chick that moves, shaking hands with everyone and telling tall tales about my favourite bands. Her boytoy goes to the can and I put my face an inch away from hers, tell her I still dig her, and that even if she leaves with her man tonight (who I have nothing against), that she should "cut off his dick and call me the next day, so we can start something real." She laughs, says she came out tonight to see me, which made no sense. She stares at me for the rest of the band's set, even after the guy returns.

I leave to another party, ditching them. She texts me the next morning, come to this and that etc. I tell her I'm not chaperoning another date. Same deal happens though, shows up at show she clearly knows I'm going to, chats me up then drags her boytoy down. This time I tell her I'm only there because it's my job and that I'm flirty and nice to people because it's part of the job. I tell her I'm overly gregarious with people I don't care about but have to be nice to professionally and promptly act as such with her and her friends. She sort of gets the point I was trying to make. I leave without saying goodbye.

Anyways, more texts this morning (she gets up early, hope she at least makes her boytoy breakfast), and I'm not going to respond, but I know she'll be shadowing me again today. If she were any other girl I'd bag another chick right in front of her and tell her to fuck off, but I actually thought we had something going.

Suggestions?

Unless she's hot, wealthy, or amazing in the sack (preferably all three), ditch her.

You sound like a character Micheal Cera would play in a movie in this description with her. That probably does not impress you so take that as my advise. ;)

Back on topic, if there's an easy way to incorporate a mobile-friendly skin, I'd be all for it.

Dude. Trust me. I've been there. Abort. NOW. This girl wants it both ways (your adulation, this boytoy's cock) and you're going to end up regretting the time you wasted on her. You're never gonna win this one and frankly, even if you do, it'll feel like you swam through alligator-infested waters for a grilled cheese sandwich.

On a side note, I wonder if custom skins are possible? They are on the Rags fansite I used to frequent.

Thanks bro, I needed that one. Never been hung up like this before, but you peeps are all completely right.

Sorry for hijacking the thread.

My suggestion is for us to just post more often once the season starts, emphasizing games we can all watch. It's really all we can do. Shiny gameday threads.

Drop that shit. Your feelings are getting used like a dirty towel. Plus you are getting taken advantage of. No Punani is worth that unless you are married....and then this happens all the time. Like the Professor said out of the gate is a big neon flashing sign...RUN THE OTHER WAY.

Anyway....I like the Thread Thanks....but......Live Chat would be nice for games.

Alright, the story is officially over, so I'll hijack the thread one more time.

So after successfully avoiding her all weekend, despite her texts and near-stalker moments, she finally finds me at my friend's showcase Sunday night, so I take her outside and tell I got played and that she should GTFO. Basically she starts blubbering about how cool I am and that everyone told her I'm a super cool dude to be friends with. I tell her the reason why I have such good friends is because I choose my friends carefully. "We're not friends," I say. "To me, being with you feels more like babysitting."

That line was meant to hurt (she's sensitive about her young appearance), and it did the job quite nicely. She gone for good.

Let the season begin boyos! I'm ready for HOCKEY!!!!!

Well done, sir.

But I find it interesting that one of the few single guys left on here is soliciting advice from old married guys... Don't make the same mistakes we made!!!
