They're too fluid and situational, I have no Idea how anyone feels about me unless they tell me explicitly, and any attempt to guess on my part, informed or otherwise, would be presumptious (a quality I detest) and unreliable.
Its not that I'm a coward. I'm quite capable of doing most anything should I get a good indication to do so.
I honestly couldn't tell you properly how to read people,you either can or can't.It's all about how they look at you,how they speak to you,not so much the content of what they say but more of a tone thing.It isn't easy to read but there are subtle hints behind it all that can tell you a lot about another's feelings.
I've never been a very social person or had a lot of friends,I'm just decent at reading people and find most very predictable.I don't go for the silly social games either and am very honest to the point of being blunt so I get it.I've always thought it would save a lot of time if girls didn't always wait to be asked out and just did it themselves,some do of course but not very many.
I think you are making a good choice in avoiding getting into trouble like your friends,they will only be having fun up until they spend the night in jail.And smoking and drinking both get old fast,there is nothing great about it.
