With conversations face to face, I'm more of a listener than a talker and when I talk my responses usually compliment the conversation, something like "thats good" or thats interesting.
In person I'm a bit hestitant on asking certain questions or keeping the conversation going because I do worry it could be too personal the first time I'm meeting a girl. For instance I dont ask a girl her age but if she does tell me without me asking, I like to make her feel good and tell her "you look younger than that".
I remember I went on a date with a girl a couple years back. We met online and the conversations were good, but when I met her in person she seemed ok but kept talking about negative stuff and I tried to make it positive but didnt work. There was just no connection in person.
Whereas I met this girl years ago in person. She's a friend of a good friend of mine and it was her birthday party. That first meeting was great, she was so nice, complimented everything, had that bubbly personality. I knew I wanted to see this girl again so I asked my good friend for her number who was quite happy to set us up. I met her friend again in person and it was so great. I had a such a great night talking to her and she was so nice to me.
Unfortunately she lives in another state and I dont know if she felt the same as me. Although there was another opportunity when I went to her city but she was overseas at the time.
Work has been ok, bit average really. Its the same every day. I cant get motivated. I try to be positive about it but nothing changes. Although there were some better moments when I talked to a couple of girls there.The other thing was I got told by my boss about a possible pay increase, which would normally make me feel good but it didnt at all. I dont know why this didnt change my mood, probably because either my workload isnt going to change or I still feel empty, being single and alone.
