    Two pieces of advice I've been given.

    1. Be True to Yourself

    2. Don't initiate anything, let him make the first move.

    Aw, I'd have to disagree with #2, Chuck. Sometimes people are too scared to make the first move.

    I had an amazing boyfriend because he was too scared to talk to me. Finally, I cornered him in class and asked him out. That never would've happened if I hadn't made the first move.

    So, I guess I get to provide the next shred of useful information.

    Two things for me too:

    1. If you're always truthful, you'll never have to put effort into remembering the lies.

    2. If you think you can, or think you can't, either way your right.

    #2 is a bit more personal as I am just coming out. My best friend who is gay told me that I should let them initiate anything first, at least until I was more confident. I had asked him how do I know if a guy is gay or not. Plus it has been a while since I was on the dating scene.

    True true. Well, it's pretty easy here in California. I've approached a number of guys and asked them because i was interested, and I'm not missing any teeth as of yet. But, had I done the same back home in Texas, well, I may not be here writing this post.

    I say definitely do whatever you're comfortable with. But confidence doesn't just 'happen' - you have to actively build it. And part of that is putting yourself out there. You can't grow if you aren't risking failure. And someone saying 'no, thanks' isn't really so bad.

    Don't be afraid to admit what you don't know and ask for explanations.

    Not only will you learn a lot more that way, but you won't look like a fool.

    Maybe not the best, but memorable. My Uncle always said this when people complained to him. "If I only, If I did this? If I did that, If-IF IF!! If my Aunt had balls she'd be my Uncle", Don't If your life away!!!

    Also "Opinions are like assholes and everyone has one!" He had many, I liked thest 2 the best.

    2 - Let them all go. See who comes back.

    3 - Never think in lack of.
