Quitter.

As a friend of mine once said "yeah, she's got a boyfriend, but that's only because she hasn't met me!"

Thats really a shame given how you really feel. In the end, if you go for it and she turns you down, you are no further behind than you are right now. If she feels anything for you, and she does, she will, at least be tempted, and there is the very real possibility that she will take a chance on you.

To put it another way, you have nothing to loose and a LOT to gain.

To put it another way, you fear the wrong thing: her rejecting you. What you should fear is that you will not have another opportunity to approach her.

I'll shut up now.

I appreciate the feedback. I still don't know exactly where I'm going to land. I seem to change my mind from one day to the next, and it seems like it depend on whether it's a day I've seen her or not. It's a lot easier to decide to let her go when she's not right there in front of me turning my heart to hearty soup.

It still feels like Tiana is trying to feel me out regarding Claire, and I'm still giving nothing back. I have this feeling that I actually would have a chance if I'd give enough of a signal that I'm interested in Claire beyond friendship. But if that's what it takes, I'm not sure I'm game. I always come back to, "Well, if she likes me enough, she'll make herself available." I'm afraid of trying to force something to happen, as that kind of relationship might want to unravel quicker.

Of course, all of this is academic for me, as I've never been in a real romantic relationship, and at the rate I'm going, I may end up marrying my pride.

I don't really know what I'm saying at this point.

Have Amie send her out a special pair of women's pink speakers with silk screened covers.
It worked for Ian, though i don't think the speakers were pink.

Don't be left standing on the dock while the ship sails away. There are worse things to get over than the rejection of a woman so take a chance.

I remember that the first girl I was brave enough to ask out when I got to high school laughed in my face. A few years later in college after building up quiet a bit playing rugby and martial arts, I met her again in a club. She didn't remember me and asked me to dance.

I know revenge is wrong but the look on her face when I told her why I would NEVER dance with her was golden!!!

Man, back in junior high a girl asked me if I wanted to go out. I laughed at her and said no. I wasn't trying to be mean. At that point in my life, I simply didn't have idea how to react, as I hadn't even considered dating anyone.

She kind of blew up at me in a class in high school. I didn't realize it was the same girl until I was thinking about it later. But yeah, I was acting like a dork with a friend in that class. I don't remember the details, but I was pretending like I thought I was cool, which I knew I wasn't, but she took my attitude seriously and really jumped down my throat. Once again I didn't know how to react. I said something about how I was all too aware of how uncool I was, and I nearly broke into tears. She felt bad at that point. We even ended up hugging at graduation, which was nice, since she had turned into a very attractive girl.

Ooh, my Zzang candy bars are Out For Delivery. I'm glad they're on time so I can take them in to work tomorrow. Yum (I'm pretty sure)!
