I've got a lot to say, so grab your snacks and stuff now, because we're not stopping after this sentence. Recently I've been talking to a chick from school named Amanda. She's really interesting, and very beautiful (no pics). We've been talking for a good month or two now, and with every phone conversation we have, and every letter she writes to me, it seems more and more like she's seriously into me. In a few of her letters, she said (paraphrasing here) "I've been trying to get my homework done all week, but everytime i have a spare second to think, i keep thinking about our conversations" and "I like you a lot more than i thought i would". That's all well and good for me, but i've got a problem. All of my 2004 was spent with GFs. From January '04 to January '05 i had, at most, two weeks the entire time when i wasn't in a relationship. After some of the girls from last year, i got burned out bad on relationships (most of them seem way too repetitious). For example, one girl i dated ended up playing games with me, maliciously trying to ruin my social status by saying i "forced myself on her", and even tried to say that she was pregnant with my kid (I never forced myself on her, and i know for a fact that i'm not the father of any children). Another girl I dated started believing her mom's words of how i was going to "Fuck her, leave her, then go around and turn her into the town whore by telling everyone how easy she was". She would go on and on about how unsure she is of my intentions, and when i protested, she'd get mad and hang up. After a few days of that, i got rid of her, like her mother predicted, but i never fucked her, nor did i turn her into a slut. Funny thing is, for someone who's so unsure, after i left her, she slit her wrist in the middle of class with a pair of scissors, claiming that "I didn't understand her right, and that all i wanted was a whore who'd suck the balls offa me" (i didn't and still don't have classes with her, so i wasn't there to see it go down). After shit like that, I decided to take a hiatus, lay back for 2 months or more, and just stay single for a while. This was about 5 weeks ago, and I didn't realize how hard it is to maintain something like this. Apparently, I'm more attractive to women than i thought, because I've had 5-10 different girls ask me out. Part of me wants to get close to Amanda, and let her know that i like her and want to progress into a relationship, and the majority of me just wants to explain the whole thing i explained earlier, and let her know i like her, but just am not comfortable going into a relationship currently, and then start hoping to god that she can wait until i get comfortable again. What should i do? I'm no good at shit like this!
