|01:53 am - hey stranger|
how can i tell if someone likes me? (short of just asking them straight out, cuz i'm a wuss. also i dont know if i would get an honest answer). i mean, some of my friends, i would basically never hear from them if i didnt seek them out. if you can remove someone from your life by takign them off your buddylist, what sort of relationship is that? but when i do talk to them, they seem happy to be talking to me, but maybe they're just being nice and hoping i'll take the hint (i've been known to do this before, again cuz i'm a wuss). i don't know. some people, i'm the same way with - i almost never talk to them if they don't start, but i like them and still consider them a friend. i don't know why i don't talk to them more, it just doesn't occur to me. so i suppose they'r enot particularly close friends, but still, i'm not biding my time until they go away. and by the same token, there are friends who don't talk to me very often, or not unless i start, and it doesn't bother me at all. some people i could not talk to for a month and we'd talk again and be great, and some people disapear for a week and they may as well have moved to the moon. i think it bothers me if i like someone more than they like me.
i know i'm gonna get someone saying "oh it doesn't matter what other people think. don't worry about it. if they dont like you it's their problem" etc. and that is all true as far as it goes, but oh well. i do care what people think, probably more than i should, but if i try to pretend i don't all it would accomplsih is more anxiety on top of it.
np: cardigans - iron man
ENh, I'm that way about you. I don't talk to you that often, but I consider you a friend. I think you'd be there if I ever needed you,a nd I would certainly be there for you. But we just don't talk that often.

Kinky! But whatever yanks yer chain, as they say =)
I would say that if you ALWAYS have to seek out the other person and they never seek out your company that they might just be "being nice" (what's that?) and being a nonconfrontational anusface. I personally have no problem being like, "Dude, you are getting wicked super annoying, please go die somewhere." But I love you Dan. Don't waste your sweetness on some of those people please.

Oh Dan, you could ask them straight out. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I always tell you to do it the straight forward and you NEVER DO.
i tried to call you yesterday, but i got a weird answering machine...do you have a weird answering machine?
i've been informed that the message is done by the grandfather of one of my roommates
i find sometimes i just don't call people. its not that i don't mean to. i think about it, but i just don't get around to it. doesn't mean i don't like them, just other stuff happens.
i don't know how you can tell if people like you.
i find that i don't get invited anywhere very often so that makes me assume that people dont' like me.
but then if you find when you do call up your friends and they seem happy to talk to you and go out and do something or whatever, they obviously like you, cos if they didn't they might tell you they were busy and that they couldn't make it or something
i do the same thing. then i feel bad about it. then i assume people don't like me if they do it to me. i don't make any sense.
