Nothing wrong with hooking up with mums. At least they've done the kid thing already.

Word KX. You don't want to start with a megadate. Even a day trip cragging is a very long time for a first date. You could take him on a day trip cragging with your posse maybe and make it a hang wid my posse thing rather than so much of a date thing.

An evening trip to a climbing gym could be good. If it's going well you could have a late dinner or drink afterwards. If it's not going so well you excuse yourself reasonably early with the "sorry gotta work tomorrow and I'm a bit tired" line.

No no no no no! Most guys will run a mile from New Age chicks.

Good advice.

There's nothing new age about intuition. There's nothing new about it either. I bet y'all use it when you're climbing. Everyone has intuition. No one seems to mind it when people say 'I had a feeling about a business deal' or 'it just didn't feel right'. That's intuition. Nothing weird or new age.
Anyway PK I prob wouldn't ask a guy out either ...unless I was pretty sure he was interested but then if he was, why wouldn't he ask me out? Old fashioned maybe.

well i've heard of friends (girls) who have been interested in someone but been so timid or stubborn about it they completely avoid giving any sort of sign that they were interested, even giving what i would call little 'not interested' signs (hard to explain). even if a guy was interested i would say for a lot of ppl there would be no way they'd ask a girl out if they're getting little/no feedback at all.

or maybe thats just sydney girls who are too proud to show any interested in someone..


if its someone you talk to, just bring the conversation around to something you do, like climbing etc and if they show interest you can ask them if they've tried it etc and offer to come along when you go. is a bit of middle ground instead of bringing in candlelight and chocolates straight away. inviting them to come when you go with your friends etc is possibly a good start. then its easy to lure them out on a two person climb and get stranded on a little belay ledge.

Intuition good. Surrounding youself with white light bad.

>Old fashioned maybe.

He might be interested but shy. He might think you're out of his league. It might not have occurred to him and his interest might dramatically increase when he finds out you are interested.

Yes, I can see it's very difficult for guys.
I agree that the best approach is the friendly chat that may lead to an outing that doesn't necessarily need to be a 'date'.

bilk and Simey - the non believers
Ok, the white light is prob a bit weird but I actually began tuning into a situation purposefully a few years ago and since then I have been very psychic (predicting lots of events and picking up info from objects jewellery, photos). I became concerned about this newfound skill which I did not ask to happen so I sought information. The white light is a way to protect from negative energies. A friend told me about it and I have read about it. If you are concerned about a negative force or person it is a good thing to try. Mind over matter is now called 'new age' but it's actually old age because these are just philosophies/phenomena that have been recognised and recorded since humans began telling stories and writing. I would be surprised if climbers weren't connected to something deeper within themselves rather than just the physical power it takes to achieve the sport.
Anyway I'm sure the Lama will tell you all about it. ;)

the word apophenia comes to mind

but whatever floats your boat. maybe not for a first date however.

Are you trying to tell me there was nothing in that rabbit forming cloud I saw before I walked into a pet shop yesterday?

LOL!

Don't get me wrong. If it has helped you, then that's great.

The advice to avoid coming across as too heavily into New Age/ Wicca/ whatever stands. But if you have some kind of gift, knowledge or whatever you want to call it and wear it lightly, that's fine.

I believe in the direct approach. I grabbed a guy I liked by the back of the pants at a bouldering comp once and said "you're keeping me warm tonight". He didnt argue and we were together for 6 years.
Dont let your fear of rejection keep you frozen and wondering, just ask him out to do something, - what have you got to lose?
For a more subtle approach - how about a bouldering date? Get him to spot you and accidently fall off into his arms a lot :)

Wow! Was that a dare or did you actually think it'd work???

It was a calculated risk, (just like climbing) sometimes you just have to go for it!
Oh.....and there might have been alcohol involved ;)
