Thanks so much for coming over...I just wanted to ask your advice about something. You know, as a guy and everything. I thought maybe you could help me figure something out...

And so begins this Choose Your Own Adventure, Friends-to-Lovers story. I'll give you choices for where we go next, and the options with the most votes will decide how things progress.

For this series, I'd like to make this a real story, full of drama and romance and some ups and downs, and so the choices I give you will be more story-like, if you know what I mean. This one will be a slower build up (since I myself enjoy that, and a lot of you mentioned you did too).

So have a think after listening, and imagine what you might say to this woman sitting next to you. If you'd say anything at all...

Here's the poll where you can decide where this story goes next!

CYOA 2 - Advice Needed - Part 2
He's clueless, gives her advice and seems upset. He leaves and she calls her friend about it0%
He isn't clueless, but he's enjoying this. He acts clueless and asks her leading questions0%
He thinks she's talking about him, but he's too afraid to risk being wrong. He says he's not the one to ask and leaves0%

    A little disappointed that my preferred path won't be chosen, but inexpressibly excited at the prospect of a complex, winding, slowly burning tale. The bits before the sex are my favourite part of your audios - not because you aren't sexy, but because you paint such vivid vocal pictures - so this saga might well prove to be one for the ages.

      Thank you so much! I'm really happy to hear that! Someone pointed out to me that these aren't true Choose Your Own Adventures, since I only give people one path to choose, not all of them. And he has a point - I only loosely call these CYOA because of the aspect of the user choosing. But I am intrigued by the idea of doing a Black Mirror Bandersnatch type experience (as much as I can) and give people all three options. I'll have to think about it, but given that so many people do seem to like the other options, I might go for it.

    What if he was clueless, with no advice and very disturbed, she asks why he seems so upset and he finally confess that he has the exact same problem with.. Some girl. 😊

    • A Eve on 2019-01-06 22:41:56 (UTC)

      I like this idea very much! I'd love it if a male performer would take up the challenge and do his version of this :P

  • MadWithLust on 2019-01-03 12:21:29 (UTC)

    I totally want to hear the cluelessness build and build and build until the super-plot-twist reveal where it all clicks into place and makes perfect sense if I wasn't so oblivious. That seems like the most realistic choice! :D

    You're so subtle and the fact I'm thinking about you with this "other guy"...total red herring! Totally makes me wonder more about who "other guy" is (he must be a hunk if he's making you giddy like a schoolgirl ;) and it throws me way off this wonderfully crafted but totally misread seduction.

    Or maybe I was just too caught up in the cleavage and didn't pick up on anything else... :P

    • A Eve on 2019-01-06 22:41:31 (UTC)

      haha I tried to be just subtle enough :P

  • CharlieRomeoLima on 2019-01-02 22:07:15 (UTC)

    I'm not sure what I would say in the moment but because of my exposure to a scenario like this I know that it would be, if I am at all interested in her in a more-than-friends way, mutually advantageous to be vigilant about what she is saying between the lines. Or, to think like a captain of the Enterprise, to reroute auxiliary power to the region of the brain that analyzes facial expressions and body language. :P I too have a preference for the slow buildup; for me I would say I developed my taste for this reading thick fantasy novels with large chunks of chapters devoted to world-building and character exposition.

    • A Eve on 2019-01-06 22:41:12 (UTC)

      haha rerouting auxiliary power, make it so! :P

    1/2 The reply would go:— “Try and get your crush to reveal if he has any feelings towards a relationship, rather than friendship. If he’s been your friend for a while, cleavage is not going to do it. If he’s only a friend he’ll be slightly embarrassed thinking of your body in a sexual way, and if he does have feelings he’s stuffing them down because he isn’t reading the nonverbal cues. Guys need hints like Highway signs, big, simple, and warning of a turn coming up in two km. Don’t put us guys on the spot, You’ve heard of flight of fight response - right? Well for guys there is one more response - fort. We’ll retreat into our fort and not come out until it’s safe. As him for his help. Get him around to help you with something - and here’s the important thing - make sure that he has to come back a day or two later to help finish it. While you’re working together, and NOT looking him in the eyes, spin him a story about women having a secret intuition to know if guys like them or not.

      2/2 ...And six months ago your intuition let you down when you thought someone liked you but then they shot you down when you asked and you no longer trust your own senses. And then say, “I need your help.” That’s the magic phrase that works on most guys. Say you are going to ask him something - and you want the answer tomorrow. Tell him you don’t trust your intuition any more as it’s saying to you that he is wanting to be more than just friends. And it’s doing your head in because you were so wrong before and you don’t know if your intuition is broken. Then ask him if he had feelings for you more than as a friend, remind him not to answer until tomorrow, and then change the subject. And then wait until he is giving you a hand the next day for the answer. That way he won't feel trapped and it gives him a chance to sort out his feelings. Then you will know if he has any romantic feelings for you, and if he does - you’ve got him."

      That's how I would dialogue it.

        Thanks for a guy's perspective on it, it helps me figure out how I'm going to work out the possibilities for the next parts!

  • SamuelXD on 2019-01-01 03:49:32 (UTC)

    Honestly, my advice would be based on what she would say and my thought process would work... and yes for the slower buildup 😊

    • A Eve on 2019-01-01 20:11:51 (UTC)

      Yay! I'm glad people are into the slower story-like telling of this!

  • HereForTheApples on 2018-12-31 04:32:25 (UTC)

    Oh, I'm imagining!

    I loved your last CYOA series, so I'm thrilled to learn that you're going to be doing another one. It's especially encouraging to hear that you want this one to be more of a slow-building narrative since that's what I thoroughly enjoyed about the previous story.

    So far, I think it's a cool opening and I'm interested how this one will go. It actually reminded me about a conversation a girl had with me back in college. She was covertly talking to me about my roommate at the time, but I was secretly pining after her. When she finally told me who it was and asked me what I thought she should do about it, I broke down and told her I didn't have any great advice since I didn't really want her going out with anyone else.

    My roommate never found out that she was into him and we went out for over a year. Good times.

    Thanks for all that you do, Eve. I can't wait to see where this one goes! :D

      Well I'm glad it could ring true a little for you! And thank you for listening! xox
