The Talk is Looming

Tuesday, June 07, 2005

So yeah, this weekend I'm supposed to be going to a wedding for one of Conservative Girl's friends or relative or something like that. Very much not looking forward to it. Everyone I've met that she was friends with in High School or College or related to has been way way boring. I feel like one of the kids who get sucked into Pleasantville and start turning all the people colors. I'm definitely a lot more of Reese Witherspoon's character than Tobey McGuire though, making out in back seats instead of working at the burger joint.

Anyway, I feel so horribly out of place it's ridiculous. I was brought up in mediocre public schools, all of them were sheltered little private schoolers. I like bars and having a drink with my friends. CG didn't have a drink till she was 23 and a lot of her family and friends don't drink at all. Just not my crowd at all.

We've needed to have "The Talk" for months now, but we never do. We're going to hang out either tonight or more likely tomorrow and really should have the talk at some point. But what about the wedding?

Do I just be nice and stick it out till after the wedding. Don't bring anything up until after? Or do we have "The Talk" this week anyway? I know neither of us are that happy dating, and the only reason we're not "just friends" is because we're both to nice to bring it up. Hell, for the last couple months we've been acting as "just friends" anyway, not like we did anything romantic or physical.

Just gotta suck it up and have "The Talk." Would I be a huge asshole to do it before the wedding though? At the same time I feel bad for doing the wedding thing and it all being a show.

The crucial question:
Is she putting out? Anything?

If she is putting out, then leave her on borad for awhile.

If she isn't, then why is she still around? Conservative in life is usually a tiger in the sack, but if she ain't getting in the sack, I don't see any reason why she's still around.

Like I said before, it's always great to have a certain degree of ruthlessness in these dealings with women.

You might want to check out a recent post, a couple days old on datingdummy.blogspot.com 's site. He just had The Talk with some girl.

It sounds to me, a girl who also recently had A Conversation, that you should tell her that you would still like to go to the wedding with her if she wants, but that you think that....yada yada. Be honest with her. It seems like the time is now.

The wedding is this weekend, so you want to give her a few days to adjust (i.e., the latest you should do this is Wednesday).

I think you should do it before the wedding. She'll be fine and maybe she could meet someone more compatible for her at the wedding. If you're not happy just let her go!

Oh - good luck! That's a hard one. I'd be chicken and wait until after the wedding so don't listen to any advice from me.

And I know what you mean about the boring friends. I hate that. And the Pleasantville analogy is spot on - you're brightly coloured and they're black and white and grey.

def before the weekend, at least she can find someone more her type there without the guilt factor :)

if you have "the Talk" now it will save you from the misery of the wedding :P

why can't men and women just dates and have safe sex without all these complications *sigh*
