Meet. Rinse. Repeat.

A conversation today morning,

She: [...] yeah, that will be fun if we are like together and stuff, but not with random people.
Me: Umm... are we random people ? I mean, to each other ?
She: Well, you are just a friend of a friend (referring to this particular other friend, She-Friend A, lets say).
Me: Yeah, I guess...

In another conversation, this time with She-Friend A herself,

Me: So I guess since you understand where I'm coming from in all this...
She-Friend A: I don't know you that well right... so...

Yeah, welcome to the vicious cycle that is my life. Recycled friendships, illicit intrusions into other peoples' lives. Enroaching on clearly marked boundaries. Pushing against a wall, I know I cannot break or climb or find the gate to.

And so I stand with my head against that wall... Bang ! Bang ! Bang !

Don't push. Don't crawl. Don't try to climb. Look up. For all you know there won't be a ceiling....so just rise and FLY AWAY.

Cheer up kiddo :)

And Don't Bang your head.

That's sehr strange. I mean, for the most part I empathize with the sorts of things you're trying to say, but this is not something I can imagine happening.

It's probably just that I've never been in a comparable situation before. Maybe it's just that I'm so creepy that by the time A realizes it's OK for me to meet B, I'm close to A.

ya, cheer up. i'll take you drinking. but no beer.

ps: maybe she thought you were a sweet boy she was meeting to make a new friend and then suddenly began wondering where you were coming from.

Banging your head against your head might bring A (or B) closer...

...to take a good look at the bumps on your head :D LOL!! Move on buddy - "Tu nahi aur sahi, aur nahi aur sahi...." (Poorly translated : If not you, there'll be another, if not another, then another...)

Mandar: Yeah, the next one is on you, after that thesis gets done !

Wahgnube: The problem here is I guess, that I think I am close to A. And the other person, A in this case, doesn't. Hence the confusion !

A: Yes. As I said, simple answer for everything. 'T&M, please pay at the counter, next please' ;)

KotS: Tiny actually. Really tiny.

Swathi: Somewhere and Im sure its pretty small even if it is there. Really small ;)

Mangs: Yes. White w(h)ine ;) I would like to tell her that I am a sweet boy, wanting to make new friends. No sudden change in directions, no wondering required.

GettingThere: Welcome ! Yeah seems like I'm going through a veritable who's who list here to find new friends ;)

FH: No, it isn't bad at all !!

Sulabhi: Oooh, that rhymes ! Randomness in life I can handle, randomness in people's character, likes and dislikes, I dont know (not meaning anyone in particular, just as a general statement)
