First I am new to this site. Second I hate dating. I want to get past the dating part, and just be in a comfortable committed relationship, and get past the infatuation stage. I hate that stage. It is very uncomfortable for me, for I am confused about my feelings, and put on such a high I fall down hard. Anyway I am terrible at dating, and can not even ask a girl out. They either ask me out, or it is an online relationship. I am very self conscious on how I am over talkative, and not always a good listener.
Has anyone here ever seen the new movie, "Silver Linings Playbook"? Awesome movie. It is basically on the subject that we are talking about, dating with mental illness. It is hilarious, and done in a very sweet, sensitive way so we can laugh at ourselves. I can definitely relate to to some of the guy's quirks. LOL Although in reality it can be very sad for when people see those quirks, they run fast.
Technically I am a relationship now I think, although she has talked to me very infrequently, because she is going through something pretty rough I think. It is a long distance relationship. I am guessing because she will not tell me, and I pretty much figured out it is because she has not stopped grieving for her ex.
Anyway in the beginning of the relationship I did the typical things such as being overly emotional, over explanative, over apologetic about myself. She actually took a half day off from work to talk to me, because she was upset. I did do better after that, although many of those annoying quirks where there. I even tried to give a safe word type of deal if i was talking too much, not listening, or going off on a tangent. She would type in the emoticon of smily face with a band aid over it's mouth, and it was the hint for me to stop. or she would just say stop, if i went too far. it seemed to work pretty good, but she still was quite annoyed to even have to do that.
Now she is going through something, and it is not right that she has not basically talked to me in a month and half, and just disappeared over night after giving me a kiss goodnight with no explanation except to lie that her computer brook down. Despite that I have been loyal, thinking she one of first woman that i was very attracted too, that kinda knew my ADHD quirks, and still gave me a chance. Why should I abandon her at her most low?
So in the movie they make it funny, but in real life they are not so funny, unless you count me asking my sister which way to turn, and she says right, and I turn left, because I do not pay attention, and get distracted easy. LOL
