During the early stages of dating, a girl doesn’t want to feel that you’re way more invested than she is.
She wants you to be secure, not clingy. She wants you to see her as a person, not idealize her. And she wants to know you are choosing her – and not just because you’re desperate for a girlfriend.
Now I’ve written before about how neediness is a state of mind and not necessarily your actions. Anything you do can be needy or not needy.
But I would be naive to think that some behaviors didn’t still look “desperate”, even if they’re coming from a healthy place.
1. Writing longer messages than hers
Listen, I hate playing games. If I like someone, I’m going to talk to them and not overthink it. But I also understand that smothering a girl too soon can be a huge turnoff.
Just remember to keep your text conversations at the same length or less than hers. Otherwise it can be overwhelming as she thinks, “He’s seems way too serious already. It also makes her feel like she needs to reply more when texting is supposed to be light and fun.
1. Cleopatra lived closer to the building of Pizza Hut than the pyramids.
The Great Pyramid was built cerca 2560 BC, while Cleopatra lived around 30 BC. The first Pizza Hut opened in 1958, which is about 500 years closer.
2. Every two minutes, we take as many photos as all of humanity took during the 1800s.
On the left is the first photograph ever taken (1826), View from the Window at Le Gras by French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. On the right is a cat who accidentally took a picture of itself (2013). It’s estimated that in 2014, humans will take 880 billion photos (not including cats). In fact, 10% of all the photos ever taken were taken in the past 12 months.
My friend's band recorded in the same studio Radiohead used for some of the In Rainbows sessions. A whole bunch of their equipment was still laying around in the live room. Most of it was vintage '70s gear. They had a Mellotron and a Memory Moog. All the reverbs are actual rooms in the basement. They hardly used any digital technology. They even tracked to 2 inch tape and only transferred to ProTools for minor editing. SSL SL9080K analogue console. Twenty year old ribbon mics. Valve preamps. No expense spared, and it drips out of every track on the album. From a technical point of view it's up there with the best Steely Dan and Frank Zappa. Radiohead not only write really great music, they're one of the few internationally recognised bands who fly the flag for the craft of music production engineering. 99% of their fans never need to know anything of what goes on behind the scenes, but their respect for doing things properly is the reason their music always sounds beautiful. While everyone else is churning out pop from a preprogrammed template; chasing down the cheapest plugins to perform the quickest fixes, Radiohead are creating art. Their music will outlast us all.
