40 and short? Send her number to Mr_G!

19-12-2007, 12:54:07
Is she married?

19-12-2007, 12:54:15
how do you say Mrs.Robinson in greek?

19-12-2007, 12:54:56
No, send me Mr_G's number!

19-12-2007, 12:55:21
"I like you a lot, in a mother and son sort of way"
and keep a straight face


19-12-2007, 13:05:03
Answer her call, tell her you like her but you think not in a romantic way. It's not a nice conversation, but better than just not answering phone calls.

19-12-2007, 13:05:43
There's no polite way to turn someone down. Harden your heart and tell her she's old as fuck.

19-12-2007, 13:09:14

19-12-2007, 13:12:34
You want the greek translation of "fuck buddies".

19-12-2007, 13:13:37
You can tell her she can still take you to the park and to go get ice cream. And by park and ice cream you mean fucking.

Answer the phone but make clicking noises using your mouse or typing sounds of your keyboard.

Answer questions with " ... ... m-hm"

19-12-2007, 13:16:56
Good idea, that's how I get out of doing stuff at work.

C.G.B. Spender
19-12-2007, 13:18:22
Yeah, I learned that at work. In hard cases you have to say "sorry, I wasn't listening" from time to time

19-12-2007, 13:20:35
Same at home, but normally then I'm not listening 'cause there's something on TV or whatever.

Don't tell Tizzy.

C.G.B. Spender
19-12-2007, 13:21:11
... .... m-hm

19-12-2007, 13:28:03
Huh? What? I wasn't listening.

C.G.B. Spender
19-12-2007, 13:30:11
Blah blah blah and something about Tizzy

19-12-2007, 15:56:56
Inivite her over when you're in bed with someone else. That should get the message across.

Or just answer the phone and make the appropriate noises.

You like her, except for the stalking. That killed it.

this reminds me....

when we were 20, we went on holiday in Greece with former highschool mates

We stayed first 3 days in Athens.
In the middle of one night, we were wandering aimlessly coming back from la plaka, we found ourselves outside the Temple of Zeus, which I think to recall it's rather central.

We jumped over the fence, and then streaked running to the temple. There were we: 5 stark naked guys from Milan running thru the temple columns.
The only girl didn't even take her blouse off, but then she was a minger anyway (we found better girls later in the isles).

Maybe surveillance got tighter in the last 25 years, but back then there was no problem to take ALL your clothes off in the middle of Athens (OK, OK, it was like 3 am).

I think I still have some picture somewhere....

Maybe it's not her. Maybe it's some hot chick you've met a long time ago begging to get banged. But you will never know...

Heh heh. I'd answer the next phone call, and if it's her, just tell her that you're really not interested in a deep relationship with anyone right now. Quote all the shit that has happened to you recently, and tell her you're not in any kind of emotional state to get involved. Tell her you're up for some fun if she is, but please don't be offended if you're not willing to take it any further.

24-12-2007, 21:00:07
does that mean you've finally bowed to the inevitable conclusion that the only women that find you attractive are short 40 year olds, and after holding out for phonecalls from younger taller hotties but being too scared to answer the phone - you decided you might as well get what you can...?

24-12-2007, 22:59:28

You know I was so excited when I read this, because somehow you captured exactly how I'm feeling, I mean 100% exactly, that I was ready to translate it, write it down and recite it word for word.

Anyway for now I'm using the art of the non explicit approach which usually comes crashing down.

What happened was that she stopped calling and I was very happy so I called. Something has happened to her cell phone and we couldn't communicate because it kept shutting down.

I was ready to say all those things but it is in the way she speaks to me with a tone of genuine excitement and happiness that makes me feel happy about myself...

Anyway we left it hazy because we didn't meet and promised we'll talk in the coming days.

Added bonus that she's not a crazy person like the others but at the same time she is not boring. Good combination. Rare.

We sent SMS. I proposed to meet but she replied that we should meet some other day because that night she made plans a long time ago and it was very hard to cancel and she added that she thought I had dissapeared (which is warranted).

I like this free thing. I like it very much. I just don't want to get involved. Just a sweet outside guest. Yes please. See, age does bring wisdom! Oh, hang on... :cry:


If you want, I give you permission to translate that and text it to her. Or hug her, and while you're holding her close, take out the piece of paper, hold it behind her, and read it out to her.

Either way, I won't claim royalties. :p

Good luck with it though. :beer:

Shit, I just realised. Tizzy and I occasionally think the same after I have had a few to drink. And Paiktis and I think the same after I have had a few to drink. Paiktis is Tizzy! :eek:

26-12-2007, 17:03:20
*kicks Greg in the nuts* for Tizzy

She can do it again laters :D

Hello. I have girl trouble again.

Things are like this (oh btw i got a new job, everything is going swell :)

OK on to important stuff.

Perhaps I told you about that 40 year old woman who looked like 25 that I hit in a party and we used to go out sometimes.

Ok. Nothing had happened with her after she told me her age and she is a little short.

Right now, after coming back to athens and being in a deplorable state of mind I used to call that other girl and she used to turn me down.

So I went out with another female friend and I kissed her. But I was sure I didn't want anything to do with her so next day I sent an SMS saying basically thank you for the memories.

Next weekend I went out with the 40 year old, and I was BORED. Really bored. Ok she makes excellent conversation she's relaxed and all that but I felt bored.

So on the way back to her car I kissed her then we went into the car and made steamy windows, without however taking our clothes off (it was middle of a very central avenue).

Ok. So I didn't call her at all the next few days. She calls me on the weekend I say, come on over she says not yet, maybe tomorrow. I said tommorow is no good.

Anyway. A week passes, she calls me but I really wouldn't like to have anything to do with her so I don't answer. So what's the problem one could say.

Well she is (I think she's her) starting to call me using encyprtion (so you don't know who's calling - private number). In most propability it is her. But I don't pick it up either. So what to do? I wouldn't want to miss important phonecalls that might also be encrypted but don't want to talk to her either.

Why do women have NO SELF RESPECT and QUIT calling you when you don't answer?

Seriously though what can I say, in a polite way, to turn her down? I would like to be polite and not hurt her feelings because in all honesty I like her a lot and wouldn't want to be abrupt or inconsiderate.

What's happened to my hairy fooker? You have turned into a woman. Are you psychotic or doing drugs?

P.s. congrats on the job. But living on the island sounds like paradise.

Well she is the woman I froze myself at.
But for a myriad of reasons.
I gave up the job that I loved because it din't have social security. I had to pay for it. Then another newspaper called and said they wanted to offer me a job with full social security and everything. Covering IT and telecommunications. I was reluctant. I knew what it entailed. But I said what the hell they give me 400 euros more than the maximum I could earn on that other paper, let's go.
So I went to visit the newpspaer director of the paper I worked for and said I'm glad that you gave me that opportunity but another newspaper wants me and I will go because they cover me 100% social benefits wise.
He said, ok go, I would have done the same but it;s the owner of the paper that is a jack ass.
I said I know. I' leave now.
He said, fine
So I went there. It was a smaller newspaper. The people looked at me like I was an alien. They could not understand that I left one of the largests most powerful newspapers to go there.
I said, we'll see how it evolves.
The unions representative said, I will get you all the benefits you must have in 1 year instead of 3 as it is required by the union. I said, thanks but my face said otherswise.

One of the chief editors was very much competitive with me.
I had to go to a doctor and I had scheduled the appointment for late that nite. He said I'll call you every half an hour to see if there's a developemnt on that story.
I said you're looking for a moron to raw the frigate, bitch? Get off your high horse. I have no need of you or your rat like face.
Well not exactly, but I meant it.

Anyway, next day I gave in my resignasion. Both that fucked face sly sleezing chief editor as well as the director of the paper fell all over me begging me to stay.
I said thank you for the opportunity but no, I'm not a slave to you.
I guess working for large newspapers did something to me.

So I quit.
And have no job. But I have my own place. That kind of gives.... insurance... peace.

I don't want to do anything else but journalism but I also don't think that work is the most importnant thing. I never did, to tell you the trurh.
Anyway I have some money in the bank, I can affod to stroke my willie a bit.

It's the first time in 10 years I'm really unemployed with no prospect. Although I'm sure the director at the large newspaper will hire me if I call.
Not having a job doesn't give me the dignity to fuck around with girls.
But I just don't give a fuck... for a little time, I need to rest and figure out what I want.
Just a little before I go back to the machine.

I hear you man.

And by the way...have you ever read Colonel Effingham's Raid (get it at the library). There is a journalism connection.
