I didn't understand the story. Those women were aliens?  

The title of this story made me read it. But I don't talk to girls at parties. Not anymore... Why should I?  In general women don't like me. Why should I make an afford then?  It has made me an emotional wrack.

When there is no after no after no, you start thinking... why am i doing this?  In that sense this story accually was a feel-good-story. Things can get way more worse. Maybe i should write a short story on it in my own native language (offcourse...) ... but first i should get more stable emotionally. 

Can you imagine all this bullcrap?  Some of you will, i guess... :)

See ya , greetings
