Spend time with her, treat her with respect, and don't be creepy. If you don't know what to do together, tell her you suck at planning things and ask her to help you come up with something to do. I don't have the best track record romantically, but I stand by transparency as the best policy. Also, try to relax. The more importance you place on what is probably just a simple "two people hanging out" thing, the more likely it is to go sideways.

I've been sitting here, trying to think of where to start in my response to this thread, but all I can come up with is...


There are dozens of places to find a lack of realism in this game, potential things that could disrupt your immersion in it, and yet the one thing you grab onto is, essentially, "Small, weak woman couldn't possibly wrestle a weapon from big, strong man"? The fact that I had the option of firing arrows directly into people's brains with relatively minimal effort seems a lot more immersion-breaking to me. Her ability to defend herself in some CQC barely registers, compared to her Solid Snakesque accuracy and stealth capabilities.

Would someone please be kind of enough to shoot me an invite? I'm "sharpless" in-game. (Surprise!)

I don't know if this is still active at all, but I just applied.

When I go to watch a video and press play, the player just goes black and nothing happens. I'm using Chrome and Windows 7, if that's relevant. Needless to say, everything was fine with the old video player; this is new to me.

Those limbs look exceptionally noodley.

So, accurate then.

I honestly could not care less. I'm unemployed, and finding a job is a bitch, especially where I live. I rely on sales for my games. If I had more money to throw around, I wouldn't mind paying full price for some games, but when it comes to money, I need to worry about being smart with my own.

The most I ever spent on a hat was $5, from the Mann Co. store. Now I just buy hats for no more than $0.50-$1.00 from fan-run stores. You could've gotten that hat for two quarters, dude. The figure is cool, though. I'd get all the Valve figures and statues, if I had the money to blow on them.

Hey, guys. Just bought the game today and I'm looking for a decent, stable server/group of people to play with. If there's a regular Giant Bomb crew, can someone tell me where to go and who to talk to?

Here's my Steam profile.
