It matters not the gender of the author…the advise is sound. Consider it divine intervention if you will. You know what you need to do; do it. And best of luck to you. Sometimes the most complicated of situations are the most enjoyable.
I can totally relate, and i agree with it, ….. doesn’t matter if it was written from a guy or a girl, take it as if it was written from ‘god’ , ‘the universe’, a sign…
Not only that but *I* happened “randomly” to click on this blog out of …all of them, randomly, and *I* am taking it as an act of god and ….. well i can relate.. i know what to do.. i tell others to do it –
I’ve finally discovered its just subconscous conditioning, ‘automatic’ fear response, fear of…..
myself?…. everything i see is a perfect mirror.. i see my desires…. “whats inside, is outside, whats outside, is inside”
I need to do what the sign says, act in spite of anxiety/fear/etc… nothing to loose, kiss her and , i’ll pay you money if she doesn’t..want it (whoever, if any, doesn’t matter… )
Ah, it takes me back. I’m 16 and that hot young man from the icecream shop on the corner asks me for my number. Such a crush I had! but I was with my sister, so I said no. The next day I go back with my number written on a slip of paper, but the day before turned out to be his last day. Never saw him again.
Carp diem, indeed.
sanity, you’re right…it can be a power struggle, but i think your picture is the perfect way of averting it..just enjoying each other and being spontaneous, not nit-picky…acting like everyday is the first day.
We could all die at any moment – any one of us. That’s not morbid, just the truth. My neighbor across the street died yesterday. She had no idea it would happen…none of us know when we may take our last breath. Whatever the meaning, whether written by male or female, excellent advice!
The writing is in chalk !!
Think, who uses chalk?
What is the proximity of the writing to a school?
Can you walk to the school from the location?
The other items on the side suggest a poster that is our of date.
May 25, 2007 is not a Tuesday its a Friday.
Take the leap of faith – it is often the best thing you will ever do. Best to live life without regret. I personally think it was written by the woman.
Good luck with the leap. I had one recently myself.
It was totally written by a man. No doubt about it. I’m an amateur graphologist. Kiss your woman for sure. I have a good feeling about it. The worst that can happen is that she slaps you. Then you’d at least know she wasn’t right for you . . . and she was violent.
It’s written by someone who still maintain innocent and rose-glasses in life or is a kid hehe. Sometimes this someone is uplifting and positive but sometimes lose hope. Possibly someone who has mood swings.
The Writing on the Wall:
“Kiss her, it may be your last chance!”
Whether it’s written by a maniac man or a romantic gal, it does’t matter, what matters is that it represents the restless psyche of the world. Whether it is written in chalk or not, but at least it ‘talks’! Kissing her may be your last chance, but your desire to kiss her is ever lasting!
UG tells rather eccentrically:
“The body knows what it needs to do to survive. If it does not have the means to survive, it goes gracefully. The only reason for this organism to exist is to give continuity to the human species. Sex is only for reproduction, but you have turned that into a pleasure movement. What else is sex for other than reproduction?”
Do have a peep at our blog: http://sulochanosho.wordpress.com
I am currently dating someone I love very much but the other day a guy who was hanging out with me who has a girlfriend admitted to me that he was feeling guilty because he loves her very much but at the same time he wanted to kiss me. I am glad we worked it out so that perhaps given time we can still be friends and not be uncomfortable with each other but had he followed this advice and just kissed me, there would have been hell to pay afterwards for both of us.
But I also know so many guys who fall for women or meet women by chance that they are interested in and I know that they desperately need this advice hammered into them with a sledgehammer. I have had guys I am interested in who are interested in me but who are too afraid to make a move so yes, I would love someone to remember this and make use of it.
But should such things occur when either one or both of you are unavailable? Is it still good advice?
I know that my friend kissing me might have felt good but that I care for no one else but my boyfriend so it would have been very messy.
Absolute gem!🙂 ” A girl I know, but you see it’s complicated, things would happen if I had either the balls or stupidity but the possible consequences seem to have stopped me from taking that leap of faith.
I know exactly what you mean. It’s true – much easier to preach/advise.
By the way, I think it was a man who who wrote it.
god dammit it’s like the universe is fucking with me… I’d kiss her if I were you. I’d fucking move the universe for her advantage. but you don’t work with her, I’d still kiss her. kiss her kiss her kiss her kiss her kiss her kiss her.
Good saying. But lemme add that it definitely would be the last if you just go and kiss her. By the way the lines speak out loud, it sure has a story to tell. Of late my phrase has always “Do it before it gets too late”
Ran into your blog very randomly to fall on something that…oh well… reminds me of things I should do ;o)
Have you, by any chance, seen the movie “Defending your life” (a comedy featuring Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep)? If not, I highly recommended it: the message makes you understand that sometimes (if not most or all) it is really worth overcoming a fear…or mental indigestion as a result of over-thinking.
Good luck anyway and thanks for sharing that picture!!
a) Take your hand. Left or right, it doesn’t matter. Check to make sure that you still have balls, and if you do firmly grab them with your hand to reassure yourself of their existence. Now ignore every other feeling and just do what you want to do.
b) Listen to your fear or anxiety and don’t take the leap of faith.
If you can’t decide, take a coin, assign the option to each side. Flip the coin and read which side lands up. If you are happy with the choice that the coin has made, great. If you are not, then you have figured out what you don’t want to do and thus what you do.
Arnold, the coin flipping idea is some of the best advice my best friend ever gave me.
(and in the spirit of the original post – I did kiss him, then I fucked him. We didn’t become life partners, but we didn’t blow our friendship out of the water, either. There was some angst, some hurt feelings but in the long run, it’s brought us closer together. Sex is fleeting, love is forever.)
A better explanation for the “too lightly” written lower section is that the angle of the chalk has been altered due to the height of the writer, causing skipping. If you write with chalk on a wall, you will see the same thing nearly every time gets too low for a normal writing position.
At the risk of redundancy (I just don’t have the time to make it through all 94 comments!), the handwriting looks more like the men’s handwriting I’ve seen than most womens. It’s just a guess, which is all I’m qualified to offer!🙂
This reminds me of my single favorite Disney song ever. “Kiss the Girl” from Little Mermaid. (Just don’t tell anyone I said that.) An excerpt for your reading pleasure:
Don’t stop now
Don’t try to hide it how
You wanna kiss the girl
intuition tells me it’s a guy who wrote this. it it was a girl, i bet it would a flower or a heart or something. i’ve been reading some of the comments here and some people say love is complicated, and some say otherwise. you’re a smart guy to think of the consequences of your actions, but also a fool not to rise above your fears.
whatever you’ve resolved to do, life will go on, either you’re with her or by yourself. regardless, things will be fine, don’t you think so?
A woman wrote it. She’d probably just read ‘He’s just not That Into You’ and she’s probably good looking and accomplished and frustrated. Frustrated that there might be men who want to kiss her but don’t have the balls because modern society has beat it out of them.
Please kiss her, for the rest of us who are trying to figure out why we keep getting overlooked. FOLLOW THE BIOLOGY!!
i don’t understand why humans have so many limitations and restrictions when it comes to expressing emotions and feelings towards another human being.
i understand the nature of being nervous, but thats the best part. men always talk about being “pussys” for being too romantic … i say its the opposite if they cant even muster up the courage to embrace a girl …. same goes for woman tho too … make shit count – do something you’re afraid to do!! kiss the girl
I was tired of playing games and waiting for guys to make the first move, so last week I shocked my friends by asking a guy I fancied out on a casual date, and two days later I told him I liked him in a text message, because I wanted to find out how he felt about me. Though I felt a certain sense of liberation, my stomach did plenty of flip-flops while I kept checking my phone. I kept imagining him reading it and going into utter shock (nobody expected me to be this daring!)
Three hours later, a message arrived (finally!). It said: “If you ever need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to call me okay? I think you are an awesome girl and I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone like you.”
Feeling relieved, I did a little victory dance around my bedroom.
P.S. Unfortunately it was not all happily ever after for me. Today I rang him (for the first time!) to wish him luck for his soccer game tonight and he was really insensitive on the phone!
As an English teacher who has just wrapped up grading about 40 exams in the last 12 hours, it looks kind of like male handwriting to me. Possibly someone who had just mised his chance, or maybe someone who just took the chance and realized it was in the last possible moment. It almost looks jaunty, like he took the chance and it paid off, rather than he missed the chance and is now warning others.
Either way, take the chance. Decide it will go horrible, make your peace with that and then take the chance. Even if the result is catosrophic, it’s something you know, as opposed to not knowing, which can haunt you for ages.
I think most significant is not the kiss part, but the “it might be your last chance” part – whatever it might mean to you. I think of my dog. Life is perfectly fleeting. These moments collect and fall away without any notice at all, like raindrops down a storm drain. But right now, I’m noticing. It’s sunny.
(Actually, my husband might have cleaned these windows. It doesn’t usually look this clear from where I sit.)
You know, Most people dont have dare to express their feelings for they think if they do and get blocked by other side, they will lose so much. It is depend on you, your choice and your personality. If you are the person always do risking even for one step forward, then you will kiss her and never lose the chance..
I see it as a guy wrote it because I view it subjectively … I don’t try to be an object unless I’m called to be for some purpose. So, artistically, I’m imagining myself (a guy) challenging my senses as to whether or not I should kiss her. Pretty simple really. Now, If I were at work an had to assess it objectively, i’d have to say there is not way to know.
I’m going to say that it was a guy. I happen to know a very charming fellow who kissed and was rebuffed and he still had the balls and intense emotion to try again. We’re nearly a year and going strong. What’s the worst that could happen?
i like that picture a lot. i’m sure lots of people have given their fair share of opinions of whether to kiss your girl or not, so i’ll spare you my comment.
the picture did trigger me to realize to not hold my feelings inside, i mean, with certain consequences in mind. you probably shouldn’t kiss her if she’s married or something… anyway, it’s a nice little topic, and it’s gotten me a little bit melancholy…i guess i wish i was that girl who is so wanted right now lol
really cool topic…its triggered a lot of nostalgic thoughts in everyone as we can see from the number of responses…im sure anyone would have gone through that phase where they liked a girl/guy but never told them for some reason and that would have left a little burning ember inside them….Its always easier to say carpe diem than to actually do it….there was this cute girl in coll who i had a crush on but never actually had the courage to tell her….last week i got to know that she had found someone…and the next day i saw this topic…coincidence???…neway i think its gotta be a guy who wrote it…..
I think it was written by Destiny…Fate’s close cousin. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter who wrote it, it just matters that we read what was written and then, act on it.
Life makes us take circuitous paths all the time. Sometimes we turn right in order to turn left…we must stop in order to proceed. There’s a wierd cosmic nature to it all. But look at it this way mate, you were supposed to see this. And considering the issue you’re having with that girl, maybe that was your sign…sent from on high through the hand of a bored butcher with access to a chalk board. Maybe it was some kid’s joke…either way, you saw it andit made you think. It was for you..meant for you…intended for you to read, digest and probably do something about. We ask for signs all the time…sometimes, they’re right before our eyes.
It’s a woman whose lot in life did not have the same outcome as the enscription so she chose to give others the inspiration to have the gumption her “want-to-be” lover never had. If that at all makes sense.🙂
Oh yea! Sorry I forgot! Your lot… Should you say something? I’m not a fan of rejection, but if you’re living a life of sleepless nights, waiting in random locations just to glimpse of her or finding yourself writing her name on cafe napkins, I would say you might want to know the answer and not the “what if”. Unless of course you can live with “What if”.
Yeah it’s a sign, alright. But don’t just kiss the girl. Catch her eyes first and if she doesn’t avert her face from you then go for it. Otherwise you’d be in your 70s and still wondering if you’d let the right one go?
Great photo! I don’t think it much matters whether the author is male or female. Someone was trying to send a message to another “someone” – a good message to just go for it! Just dooooooooooooit and take a chance!
I think it was a guy who wrote it. And as for things that we see giving us a push in the right direction, in reference to your situation, think of it as fate.
Good luck with your own problem.
And great picture.
Life is too short, might as well take what we can get one monet at a time…
This is very timely for me as well…I recently re-connected with a guy a used to work with 6 years ago. A long conversation between us revealed that the whole time we were working together (2 years), we were both very attracted to each other but never acted upon it for various reasons. The next day he posted this on his myspace page:
“When you see something you like, do what you can to get it. Don’t live life standing still.”
He’s in Chicago still, and I’m in SF. We never thought we’d ever speak again. You never know…
i am Asian..Christian catholic to be specific…within the spangs of culture and social grace..ask her first, then before she answers give her that quick kiss- if she smiles then go torrid..if she won’t like it..just say sorry..and better luck next time then😛
it can be a woman’s writing, looks like it… how would she be, a dreamer? also a bit shy.. and also tired of waiting or perhaps even sad.. but it can also be an undecided man, shy, trying to figure out his feelings and encourage himself. hard to tell.
I have come across this recently in prints and immediately loved it. Although I read it differently…
I don’t see it as fate or a sign, probably because for one i’m a girl, but also because I dont want to.
I interpret this as ‘kiss her’ because tomorrow she’s likely to be gone. Almost a warning to the guy… written by the girl. Of course, if i wasn’t completley terrified of commitment then I may see it differently!
Great picture though, however we wish to interpret it!
