So I've been out of the game for about 2 years now. I found a girl and we went out for about a year and a half. I let all my stuff go since we had been talking about marriage. It didn't work out. Needless to say, I am very rusty and have forgotten almost my two years worth of work previous to this. The worse part is that I have fallen hard for a girl, Katie, that is a previous roommate of mine, and we've been great friends for quite a while. The tricky part is that she's into girls as well as guys, and she's been in love with her roommate (also a former roommate of mine), Anne. Katie is slightly awkward in situations and is one of those girls where she has no clue how gorgeous she is, but is a solid 9--she probably thinks of herself as a 6 or 7. Anyway, Anne is only into guys and turned Katie down about 6 months ago. Katie's been trying to get over her and has been having troubles. So enter myself, I have been working on Katie for a bit now. Slow and steady working my way out of the friend zone. A couple weeks ago we ended up having a mutual conversation about us being in a relationship, and she said it she didn't want one right now because of the move. (her and the other roommate are moving to the west coast for additional schooling, and I'm moving out there with them in about 5 months when my job starts). I totally understood her reasoning as I agreed with her. I hate LDR's. However, what should I do for the next 5 months? I know my skills are a few years out of date. The best I can figure is kinda create some distance and come back as an improved me. Show her that I have continued to improve myself. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am going to start reading up on everything and hopefully get this rust off. I plan on heading out to the bars quite a bit and practicing over the next 5 months. I'm not up for being an AFC anymore. Thanks in advance.
