You never really know what will happen.

No but I know the most likely outcome.

That is true, it is about 9 to 1 against anything happening.

Sometimes I wonder why I'm going through with this at all. I am friendzoned.

Yes, that is considered the worst thing a girl can say to you. They know that...

I guess I have gained a friend. I've not been to someone's house in years. But I'll go, in the slim, slim hope she'll give me a chance.

You have to be detached from that too. If she offers it, turn her down flat.

If she offers me intimacy? Why, why would I turn down that?!

Because you are acting like you are so needing her. Good practice to tell her you just want to be friends.

But it may be my only chance.

You really can only deal with them from a position of strength. Any sign of weakness is taken advantage of. They can not help it, that is the way they are programmed to behave.

But she says fundamentally she likes girls. If I decline she may never change her mind again. She knows that I like her, and she has rejected me... it is difficult to turn this position into one of strength.

That is true and she just might string you along forever. They are into torture.

I still don't know if she really does see me as only a friend. I know you say that guys and girls can't be friends but what if the girl only likes girls?

She does find me attractive though, that is a certainty. And that under different circumstances she would be with me. (So she claims.)

So far you have no reason to believe anything she says. It is possible she is lying about everything.

True, I do not know how I could verify this information.

I'd better hang on, I must prepare to be strung along for the next 6 months.

You can not verify any of it. I would not recommend allowing yourself to be treated that way. It will cause massive emotional damage.

Maybe I could try it for a little bit longer before cutting the string.

That is up to you. You will have to decide soon though.

Because if t\you allow her to play mind games with you the reults will be bad for you.

Hmm. Well, I must do something. I'm going to try to touch her in some way to break the touch barrier. I'll hug her when I see her and maybe tell her I want to rub her back.

If I comment about that I will be in deep trouble.

Well, I think you know what I mean... but obviously not too far (UNLESS she is liking it), since she does keep saying she is remaining faithful to her BF.

That will not be difficult if she is different. Why do you think he is in Cyprus?
