OK Charles, I can’t stand it anymore and have to say something…. Have you ever watched a monkey swinging around in a tree? If not, do so. A monkey will not let go of one branch before it commits to the next branch. It has to have a firm grasp on that next branch before it lets go of the first branch. Think of women and relationships with this in mind and you’ll start to understand what’s going on with this girl you’re infatuated with. She’s made it pretty clear that she’s not all that interested in the branch she’s clinging to now, but she needs the comfort of finding that next branch before she can let go of the one she’s holding onto. She’s trying to grab it (you), but you won’t let her.
I know this isn't where you got it, but I always associate that monkey/branch comparison with M:I-2.
Yes, a lot of my decision is cowardice with spin. However, I really don't know how I'd feel about dating a swinger who's just looking for the next handhold. I kind of hate to think about her being freshly off fartknocker's branch.
Don't worry. Now I'm just joking. You called me on the fact that I'm justifying my lack of action, but debating is fun.
I mean, you're right, the only way to feel good about myself is to just do it. I don't have feelings of this depth often enough that I can just flush it away and be okay.
As it happens, I'll be hanging out with Tiana and the tree dweller tomorrow. I doubt I'll have a good opportunity for spilling any beans, but I'll make an effort to leave a decent impression on her, and I'll talk to Tiana on Monday. Between you and fredk, I may yet be browbeaten into a surge of spinal growth.
Thanks for the talk.
