So this is my frist thread in 2 years, and I never would of thought it'd be here on a relationship advice board. Hope most of you enjoy a good read,
because I've got one for you.
So as the title says, advice for a kiwi bloke. So i'm a 19 year old university student, in New Zealand, I'm shy when it comes to woman, like to
think I'm a gentleman especially when comparing myself to other males and never had much luck with women in my life so far. When I was 15-16 I was
dating my first lady friend for 1 year, long distance, she went to all girls school, her parents were protective naturally, and I got to see her
every 1-2 weeks. Then after she dumped me, about 1 and half years later I met another girl, who really just lead me on and used me, then never heard
from her again. I grew up in a relatively large town in New Zealand, called Paraparaumu, 40,000 citizens (this is a large town for New Zealand), it is
known to be a hotbed for high school drop-outs and one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in New Zealand. The females there were as most would
call "Slutty", but I liked to think of them as lost and searching for some sort of meaning.
So, I thought when I got to university this would change, and of course proven wrong. I have seen this mentioned in many other threads here so I
understand it is like this for a lot of guys, who, like myself consider themselves to be nice and a gentlemen. Anywho.
So I've know this girl since I was 14, I met her in math and I.T class. she's a gentle and calm girl, very cool, one of them "mythical girls" so
they do exist lads! We've kinda been friends for last 5 years, not ever really been close to her. She's had one boy friend, one of my good mates, a
Scotsman, who now dates one of her best friends and soon to be flatmate, she is very conservative when it comes to guys, doesn't like to put herself
out there for any guy to have a go at. So as by no, you would of guest that I have feelings for her, but I am flabbergasted in what to do next. I try
and see her as often as I can, she lives in pram but has no problem catching the train into Wellington to hangout, but I don't know if this is a sign
or what, we do spontaneous things, like go to art galleries, museums, movies, walks along the waterfront I've been itching to ask her on a date or
even tell her I have feelings for her. She is the kind of girl who, as mentioned, is very conservative about telling people if she has a love
interest, I just don't know if it'd be right to make move or anything, I really want to, and one of my friends who I've told keeps smacking me on
the head when I don't say anything to her.
So I thought, there are a lot of mature and older women and men on ATS, why not ask them. I know I am just a silly 19 year old boy and there is other
women out there. I just need some advice. I usually lurk, and this is my first thread in long time as mentioned. I just need to know would it be right
to make a move or am I joking myself thinking that she may possibly be interested, .. I'm sure I've left a lot out of this.. So any questions are
