Thing is, I don't know how to broach the subject of sex with a girl.  Sure, talking/joking about it with them I can do just fine, but initiating the actual act itself...is much harder.  In short, I blame it on the fact that I have a really hard time reading people and either miss or misinterpret the vast majority of whatever subtle body language is being directed at me, not to mention I suck at picking out subtleties in speech that point one way or the other.  
So yeah, casual sex might be fun, if I knew how to get to it.

Me too.   :-(  
 
Quote from: ginandphonics
I don't see anything wrong with the casual thing. If you're not in the right places to become emotionally involved with someone but you're into them, why bother complicating things by trying to label it as something more than casual.

In theory, if we humans could avoid complicating things, misunderstanding, reading more into each others behaviors, etc, it could be a better world, though much romantic fiction and most sitcoms would disappear.

You make it sound like that would be a bad thing.

The idea of "no strings attached" is just that, an idea.  In practice, there are always strings attached;  it's just a matter of how obvious they are to you.  Even with a prostitute, there are strings--in the form of cash.

This is making me think of one of my favorite XKCD comics, but I can't find the exact comic for posting here.

Linked for you.  Then again, for the too-lazy-to-click,



I like that xkcd supports hotlinking. 

Edit:  the mouseover text is  "Hey, I don't make the rules.  It's in the book."

Love this.

I'm unintentionally monogamous.  I got out of one LTR, happy to see freedom and expecting to be super-manwhore-man, but stumbled into another LTR.  I'm happy here, so I guess it's not in the cards for me.

Mmm, a little bit of column A, a little bit of column B. I think I'm more inclined to go with a serious relationship now.

Then I remind myself I'm 21 and I should have fun, so I slap myself.

Then I remind myself it's not like I'm reeling in the fine honeys to begin with, so I slap myself again.

Keep slapping yourself like that, and you might give people the wrong impression. 

Unless you really are  masochistic...
