    Just click your mouse wildly all over an open document in Finalé note pad or some such program. Symphony writes itself and you have made very modernist music . Or pull a John Cage and just score silence

    And yes, there are such things as INTPs who overuse emoticons

    HAHAHA, oh I'm sure the bedroom would be his ideal.. unfortunately.... no.

    I was thinking about a bar that he occasionally goes to, that plays live music and has apx 30-40 people in it at night. I know I won't have a problem talking to him, but he is extremely introverted.. and I hate putting pressure on him to socialize. If I take him to a bar and it gets awkward for him or he feels put on the spot, I can always chat with other people to take the spotlight off him. What do you think?

    Hmm, I dunno! Introverts like spending quiet, one-on-one time with people. I think I would personally be annoyed (ok, I would be totally annoyed) if the purpose was given as having dinner together... and then my friend/date started randomly talking to strangers because I was taking awhile to reply.

    And hey look, I hijacked yet another thread! >.> /skedaddles.

    Its cool! It's not meant to be a "lets hook up I'm interested in you" deal. We tried that along time ago, no bueno. Its more of a "hey.. you were a cool friend and we lost touch.. lets catch up" deal. He keeps indirectly asking me to, but I want to send clear signals of *just friends*.

    Ah, I've been there... The day before Valentine's Day I went to the science museum with a friend of mine. (We've been friends for about 14 years now, and in the beginning he was interested in dating me, but I said no.) I am always on the alert to not give the wrong impression about why we are hanging out. (Not that I think I am all that and a bag of doritos, but I hate being lead on myself.) Anyways, we go to this fancy restaurant and the server chick assumes we are dating:

    Server: Ohhhh romantic dinner for 2 I see for Valentine's Day?
    Me (head): Motherfucker! Why did I have to see the science museum today of all days!!
    Me (mouth): Nope, just having dinner. *Looks down sternly at menu*
    Server: Oh.... Ok.... Um... So Um... yeah....

    It was awkward enough sharing dessert at the end. Sharing a dessert with a non-date designated male always makes me stare at where they are eating so I can eat on the opposite side. I get weird about the idea of our saliva mingling even through the medium of cake.

    And you are scared he wont get the "hey.. you were a cool friend and we lost touch.. lets catch up"? Really?

    Even if you add the phrase: "I only want to be your friend and have no romantic feelings for you"?

    If hes got good deduction skills Im pretty sure he'll get what you mean. If not I dont understand why you want him as a friend.

    Uh, its been aloong time. Probably 7-8 yrs. I am pretty sure that he gets its just a friend thing. I don't want to have to come out and say this if its not necessary. I find that a bit rude. What if he gets it, and then I go and say something like that, then he compulsively analyzes why I felt the need to make the clarification, then it becomes AWKWARD, and there goes the friendship.....
