    One, two, CHA CHA CHA!

    Ok, don't laugh.

    So this lady at my church is one of thse.... giving people. You know the type? I consider her tantamount (if that's word) to the inventors of Jewish Singles Night. She's trying to get this swing/ballroom dance class going for all of the high-school age Mormons in the area and friends, etc. It started out pretty well, we had a really good teacher, and really really ridiculously good looking girls. Mormon ones, too. But he broke his hip, so she decided to try some different things. Because we lost the professional teacher, we also lost the good floor, so now we're in the local elementary school, trying to get it free by running an official program called, "Annette and Co." I am aware of the dumbness of this name, please, no jokes, Then we got a new teacher, who lives in a town known for it's wierdos. She and her husband are idiots. One will come a long, and say "loosen up your arms, dancing is supposed to be fun", while the other follows with, "tighten up your arms, you're a man, stand your ground!" Not only that, we're constantly getting new people in the class because this lady (who is actually nice, she's just... well you know te type), is so committed to getting everyone involved, that after 3 years, we have to start again every month. So I'm not learning anything, I'm constantly paying money, I may actually be getting dumber, I have to associate with people from that town, and the only thing left in it for me is that chick. Mmmmm..... chick..... Anyway - I just got a call (which is strange, since I specifically requested to be taken off the list), reminding when and where, and how much money to flush down the toilet before I come. I'm faced with a problem. The chick.

    I know very little of the Mormon culture so please forgive me if I appear ignorant.

    Can you just call her and ask her to hang out? You shouldn't be wasting your money, especially if you aren't having a good time. For all you know, she could be going just to see you. It's worth a shot.

    No problem at all - a lot of people who think they understand Mormon culture, don't, and at least you admit that.

    Well we're both 16, which is the "age" I guess where they let us date, so I could call her and ask her to hang out, but you see, she had a boyfriend who moved to California a few weeks ago, and she really missed him for a while. But then, last night was the first time I've seen her since I left for South Africa, so it's been over a month, and she was a little, how you say, happy to see me? I mean, really happy. I'll probably call her sometime, but not yet.

    Actually the guy was 60-something, had 3 hips already, and wasn't even Mormon. The last Mormon-party I went to involved Aladdin, and water chugging contests. Not exactly the Pay-Per-View and Shot glasses I'm sure you guys are used to.

    Hey, I resent that! I've never ordered Pay-per-View, and I prefer beer, thank you very much!

    > Actually the guy was 60-something, had 3 hips already,

    Dang, and he kept teaching dance? Quite a trooper.

    Hope everything works out

    Well actually, when the chick called to remind me it was this week (and incidentally, she asked for "Seen"), she said it was at this lady's house, which didn't sound like we had the crazy instructors. So I figured I'd go and just see how it was (and the chick). So I called to see what the price was (and because I wasn't paying attention to the times the girl on the phone told me), and I got such a lecture (it was more, gentle sobbing actually), that I felt so bad and agreed to go back for at least one week. Not only that, the cool teacher we used to have broke his back dancing with the nurse in the hospital after his hip operation. It'll be a while...

    Woah, that guy needs to settle down!

    Anyways, no sense paying money for anything you don't like. I mean, if you aren't learning, imo, it's dumb to pay money to go just to see a girl. Just ask her out now and if she says no, then at least you didn't waste anymore money in that class for nothing. If she says yes then everything is fine. Just me .02

    But knowing won't change anything... Just find out.

    By the way, MrWizard, shouldn't that be '$.02'?
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I prefer the leading 0 on money myself... $0.02.

    Hey Sean, I thought you were a lot older, lol. Anyway, just thought I'd say that girls don't (usually) bite (hard). Just ask her... you can arrange something that will sound like friends if you're afraid of rejection. That way it can't be too bad if she doesn't want to... and it can always turn into something more later.
    Away.

    Let her know how you handle rejection. Make her too scared to say no to you. It's either yes, or your face is in a cast for the next few months.

    How did this turn in to, how to ask, ####### out? Anyway - it's not her I'm afraid of, it's my parents. Not to mention, she's had a lot of stalkers, and I'm not sure, "or your face is in a cast" is the safest option when dealing with someone that experienced. And when I said I'd be happier not knowing, I meant that for the time, at least I don't know I'm a freak, I just think I am.

    Dude, grow some balls. You are taking the ignorance is bliss cop out. Seriously, part of maturing is doing things that aren't always easy. Trust me, if you do it, when you look back on it, it won't seem like a big deal at all. However, if you don't do it, you are always gonna wonder "what if?"

    Don't listen to him. Punch her in the face, see what color blood runs from her veins.

    It's green. She's a Vulcan. That's why he doesn't want to ask her out - she can beat him up.
    Away.
