General The Cure Discussion / curefans.com members visit Crawley
« Last post by admin on October 23, 2018, 21:44:41 »
CRAWLEY, 21 Oct 2018 (CUREFANSNEWS) - curefans.com members Jojo Denovan, Percy The Hedgehog and dsanchez visited last Sunday Crawley, the city where it all started for The Cure.

During their journey, the three imaginary friends noticed that besides a couple of photos of Robert in the Crawley Museum there was, sadly, not any reference to the band in the city. They explored The Cure's landmarks in Crawley such as the pub The Rocket (now renamed to "The Railway" and also without any reference to them) and several other places mentioned in Lol Tolhurst's Cured such as High Street, the bridge were Robert and Lol were chased by some neo-nazis, the Memorial Gardens, the band stand were The Cure (or probably Easy Cure) sometimes played (this band stand can be seen in the Staring At The Sea videos), the Crawley College and of course, Crawley's Train Station that probably the boys used quite a lot.

The fans committed to write to the Crawley Council some suggestions to improve The Cure's "presence" in town (for instance, in Peru there's a route about Mario Vargas Llosa that follows some of the places mentioned in his books - something like this would be nice to have in Crawley for The Cure)

Hm, I guess there is no direct translation and my English-speaking friends never used this word.

Friendship is the problem though. If you want to be friends with someone that’s cool, but problem with men being friendzoned is they don’t wanna just be friends...

Yeah, well that's probably why MeltingMan considers leaving it "a challenge".

There’s only one way to leave the friendzone, find a new friend ;)

That means friend-zoned; acting like a friend. Building up faith - building up a "connection" lowers
sexual attraction in her eyes and means entering the friend zone. It can happen to everyone.

Thanks for the perfect explanation, now I understand.
Can happen. Could be worse, friendship & faith is a good thing...

I think it’s very cute you didn’t know what it meant :) or more so, the terminology

Sorry, what does "friend-zoning" mean?  :neutral-face

In a way it's my fault: She is looking at me as a friend and not as a lover. That means
friend-zoned; acting like a friend. Building up faith - building up a "connection" lowers
sexual attraction in her eyes and means entering the friend zone. It can happen to everyone.
Leaving it is a proper challenge.

Why you finding it hard to leave the friend zone?

You talked about a girl in March (reply #79 and so on).

Ah yes, I'd forgotten I'd mentioned this here.
Shouldn't have, the way it turned out. (Borrowing money and then disappearing, isn't the nice way - only can reach her via email right now.)  :mad:

Whoah, post #79, just goes to show how many posts we put in here since then!  :1f632:

I had a rendezvous in March as well (sorry for using appointment incorrectly). That woman finally friend-zoned me in September.

You read my mind haha!!
....alas the reality of AU$1700 airfares drops the wind from my sails.

Can’t complain though as doing some travel closer to home, Bali, then Vietnam.
...But if The Cure travel closer to Australia that could cause a Grinding Halt to all my other plans 😀

I hope they grace you down under, still, would of been nice to have you back home :oops:
