A Slight Dilemma…

So I have a bit of a problem in the world of the interwebs…
You see, I made this friend …. for argument’s sake let’s call her H.
Now H and I don’t really talk much, in fact, we are merely Facebook friends that added each other.

Enter new friend, B who is actually a friend of H and added me out of curiosity of my association with H.
Do I tell B that H and I are not really friends?

Trouble is, he seems like a top lad, and I think we get along really well, but I don’t want him to think I am like a castaway or anything…
What to do?

Preparing for Battle

So today is the day. I found a Speed Dating luncheon at a local cafe in the city, so this is where I am really going to and have a crack at meeting some new people.
I was looking online for tips and tricks, and while in my meandering, I came across a few major points of reference to try and get a proper conversations going….

Pay Attention to Your Appearance (goes without saying…)
Watch Your Body Language (smiles can make or break a date)
Don’t Be a Whiner (I am really a very positive person..)

Popular Questions to Prepare For:
* What are you most proud of in your life?
* Is religion important to you?
* What do you do for fun?
* Why did your last relationship end (Break-Up)?
* Do you want to get or have you ever been married?
* Do you want or do you have any children?
* If we got into an argument, how would we settle it?
* Where do you see yourself in five years?
* What do you do for work?
* Is sexual compatibility important to you?
* What do you look for in a (boy/girl)friend/spouse?

Some of these seem pretty daunting.
I did a lot of research and have decided that I can steer around a few answers that might make me look like a loser.
Loser Answer : Yeah I live by myself.
Winner Answer: I choose to live a really solitary life.

Loser Answer: Oh no, I have never had a girlfriend.
Winner Answer: When I meet the right girl, I’ll know. And that will be it for me.

Loser Answer: I have never had sex before.
Winner Answer: Intimacy is the most important thing to me.

I sound like a woman, I swear. But from what I’ve read, chicks dig that SNAG shit. I’m in for sure.

Today from 11:00am-1:00pm I will be speed dating a lucky few at Caffiene at Vault Cafe on Swanston St, Melbourne.

If any of my female readers are available, I’d love to chat. Come down for a coffee, I am pretty sure it is free to sign up.

The WordPress ‘Blog.’

So here I am, newly introduced to this blogosphere that has set the world by storm. I guess it’s just a bit easier to begin by introducing myself a little bit.
My name is Simon Brown, I am a 21 year old student living here in Melbourne. I currently live in Carlton, in a sharehouse. Share, however is a bit of an overstatement. Where I live we don’t share anything, food, bills, conversations, glances – if I saw one of my housemates walking down the street, I honestly couldn’t tell you.

From what I gather, there is three of them, only for the sheer fact that the rent is split four ways. That’s about as far as my knowledge of them goes.

Anyway, I was just online talking to a few people in a forum, about ways to make friends and meet new people and they suggested I start a blog. From what I gather – a blog ;

usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events,

is kinda like an online diary. Seems a pretty girly thing to start up really, so I checked out a few more blogs, and decided that they actually have the potential to be awesome.

Man Blog
Wrestling
Zombies

Examples of what’s to come, I think.
