You'll be happy to know the longest song on my playlist is 5:46 or so.
In all honesty, the Genesis song was one of its weakest moments IMO. The first 9 were very strong. After Genesis, it's been really mellow. I have 2 songs left to go.

The crowd intro to the Todd Rundgren song really detracts from th flow.

At least Screwtape sorted his out properly. Pfan didn't even name all of his songs.

He's very kind and respects me a lot, but I just want to be his friend, and English is like his sixth language so things can be difficult in communication, let alone other things.

It's complicated and I had a discussion with him last night and it kept on going around in circles. And I had promised we'd hit the town tonight, but now I'm going with my sister and a friend, and I'm not sure if I should still see him. I mean I feel really responsible for this mess, even though the key of it is that he doesn't yet understand Western etiquette in this department.

I hate that nagging feeling of doubting your own playlist. Eh, this is my first attempt after all, though.

Actually, I had to update all the tags for Screwtape's. Then again, I had to for a bunch of PFan's too. The one who really got it right when it comes to the tags was Khan. It was very impressive.

Ew, two live songs to end his playlist? Not a strong finish IMO for Screwtape.

I didn't bother with tags. But they're all numbered anyway. One of the easier playlists to sort through, I'm hoping.

I'm a perfectionist. All my own are tagged with all their official information. People will just have to put them in order themselves.

Well, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my music library.

Yeah, that is rough, especially since he is essentially a good person.

I am personally a goody-two-shoes (whatever the fuck that means), so I would suggest seeing him since you said you would. But after that, if you're really not emotionally attached and have no desire to go forward with the relationship, cut him loose.

Yes, he's really nice and he's had a fairly tough time (his family house was destroyed by a volcano a few years ago and he came here only with his younger cousins), but he doesn't play the sympathy card which is of course good. I keep saying that don't worry, you'll find someone else - but he won't take this for an answer, he really wants to be with me. And as much an honour as that seems, I just want to be his friend.

I will probably call him later and ask if he wants to have some drinks with us, but that's it really. I think to distance ourselves for a while would be good, or just to see each other in lower frequency.

Yeah, I will keep up my final comment on Screwtape's list. Weak ending IMO.

Just remember to have patience with him. In situations where someone will inevitably be dropped, it's best to do it as gently as possible, especially if you have every intention to carry on a friendly relationship with them and if everything is seemingly "OK". A good way to do that is, like you said, to continue seeing them, but at a lesser frequency. I trust you'll do the right thing.
