What, you’re not going to agree to go out on a date with Miranda and Tracy at the same time and then have to run back and forth hilariously all night?

Man, Nate. Way to spoil the party.


Miranda: I didn’t know laryngitis was making the rounds.
Nate: Huh?
Miranda: You never called! It’s been four days!

Nate: Crap, I’m really sorry about that. I wanted to talk to you in person about it anyway.
Miranda: What’s up?

Nate: I’m… I’ve just got a lot going on at the moment. I don’t think it would be right to get into a relationship now.

Miranda: Whoa, who said anything about a relationship? I thought we were just going to hang out.

  1. At least she’s not my first gf who couldn’t make up her mind.

    And I guess she thought they were being just friends.

    This seems familiar somehow…

    Happened to me. Asked this girl for her number, then crap just started to brew in my life. She asks me why I haven’t called, I explain myself, promise her I’ll take her on a date soon.

    She looks right at me and goes “Who the hell said anything about dating? I just wanted an excuse to get out of the house!”

    Fuck my life…

    Pump the brakes, Nate! Not every girl has an agenda. *^_~* This just gives more credence to my theory that men love to complain how women are always too serious and women are straining at the leash to get into committed relationships and blah blah blah etc., when really it’s MEN who are full of estrogen and feelings and act like “traditional women”. *^_~*

    I asked a girl after we ‘hung out’ a couple times if this was leading somewhere or if we were hanging out (the signals were a tad mixed), she said hanging out. I was a little disappointed, but I could live with it and said so, but she started to avoid me after that. Weird.

    Hopefully Nate won’t face the same problem here.

    • Gillsing says:

      Maybe she preferred to hang out with someone who just wanted to hang out, rather than just hang out with someone who apparently wanted more? By avoiding you there’s no question about which signals she’d be sending, and she wouldn’t have to worry about inadvertently encouraging you. So I wouldn’t call that weird.

      Not that I know anything about girls. Or people. Maybe she didn’t know what she wanted at first, but then decided that she didn’t want you, and just wanted to move on? Without necessarily explaining or admitting to anything? That would also not be weird.

    Itr’s a short & slippery slope from “let’s hang out” to “let’s pick out curtains”. ;) But seriously, Nate should dump Tracy and go out with Miranda, if only to regain his self-respect.

  12. Chris says:

    She just told Nate his Miranda rights. ;-)
