I didn’t make guy friends in college because I grew up being ingrained that I cannot date, and was unconsciously afraid that people will judge me for liking someone because I always felt unattractive but like people out of my league. I actively avoided guys to not cause any misunderstanding, but was still caught up in drama/triangles? All the guys I became acquainted with were super offended I didn’t consider them to be a close friend/romantic interests. Was it because they liked me?

Sort of the same except reverse for women. I tend to really like anyone I become acquainted with (including coworkers, tragically) so as a guy I wouldnt at all be surprised if they liked you. To this day I still keep the emotional "arms-length" distance from women and not really sure how to get over it. I just fall too fast

Thinking of buying a DateJust 41. I like the look and have an AD who can hook me up with minimal wait time but I’m lost in the array of options - fluted vs smooth, dial color, Roman numerals or not, etc. Curious what the general sentiment is on this. Also, does a DateJust hold value just as well as a Sub?

I just moved into a new luxury building this week. I’m sitting in the TV room when in comes the concierge/building security chatting me up.

Either way I’m feeling like I need to get out more 😂
