Title: Goon Amore: E/N Breakup Megathread. Free schadenfreude ITT
Post by: Pleasant Rectal Itch on September 01, 2017, 03:09:31 PM
Since the E/N thread got fagged up by faggots and their faggotry; I am proud to present to you stories of heartbreak and not taking good advice when it comes to relationships.

Cross posting this from the E/N thread since it is too good to not include it. There are some new posts he made so I added them to the pile of lols- August 31st

More relationship woes from goons.

I present for your consideration- The Heartbreak of deadly_pudding in Many Posts or The Man Too Pussy to Say No. This is going to be long so grab a cup of coffee and some popcorn!


How his saga starts in the E/N breakup thread- May 11th 2017

Quote from: deadly_pudding
I think I'm finally pulling the trigger on this one. You may have seen me hemming and hawing in other threads before! I think I probably have undiagnosed depression symptoms that stem from my almost comically low testosterone for a man of my age, so I may be extraordinarily bad at prioritizing my self-interest

Anyway, I technically broke up with my girlfriend like a year and a half ago? But she very quickly guilted me into taking it back because she knows I'm apparently pathologically motivated to frame myself as "reasonable and tolerant." And now I just kind of feel like I'm some kind of emotion hostage because I couldn't put on my big boy pants and sever.

There's been basically no emotional or physical intimacy in our relationship for like 3 years. This is both of our faults. When the aforementioned low testosterone started causing weiner problems, she took it mega personally and thought I was unattracted to her, and over time I developed an aversion to even trying because there were so many angry, sex-adjacent blowouts. So now we're like roommates that are comfortable being nude around each other.

Anyway, she can't control the volume of her voice when she has earbuds in, so I know that she's been having cam sex with foreign dudes on her phone when she says she's taking a nap. I confronted her about it this morning because she wouldn't stop pressing me about why I'm mad at her, and apparently I'm the asshole for "ruining her day".

And like, yeah. I get that this situation is 50% of my fault. I didn't try to fuck her for like 3 years. But she didn't try with me, either. She hates being touched on like 70% of her body because she's a self-loathing fat girl, she doesn't like kissing. She hates being breathed on! I have weird shoulder problems because she wakes me up and makes me roll over at night so I won't breathe on her, so I've just been sleeping on my bad shoulder for years. She just wants somebody to efficiently bone her like a robot without acknowledging or touching her body, which I'm like the least qualified person in the world for. Keep in mind, these were all things that she disguised until after we moved in together. OR I GUESS MAYBE I'M JUST SUCH A BAD LAY THAT SHE DEVELOPED THEM AFTER, I DON'T KNOW ANY MORE.

She also has a really shitty attitude, and a toxic personality. This is all shit I let slide because for the longest time I felt like I had an obligation to her. We moved in together way too early because we were both broke as hell, I needed a fourth roommate to dilute rent, and she needed to get out of her parents house. And for that first year, she covered the majority of the grocery bills because her income was more reliable than me, and she's just been lording that over me ever since. As soon as I finished my degree and got a real job, she became a NEET for a year and then went back to college full-time, so as far as I'm concerned I don't owe her anything on that front. She also holds over my head the fact that we only have a car, after my old car's transmission died while I was delivering pizzas (), because one of her friends was leaving the country and needed to offload his car cheap. She constantly uses "gay" as a pejorative, she treats all our friends like shit and they put up with it because they're all sadbrain nerds like me. She drew a frosting dick on our friend's birthday cake the other week and keeps asking him when the last time he had sex was (it's not recently! FUCKING RELATABLE).

She looks down on my nerd interests like crazy. I think she put up with it for the first year of the relationship, and then started leaving the room whenever I started watching anything in Japanese . Roleplaying is a dead hobby because involving her means that setting any kind of mood will be impossible because she thinks genres are stupid and just wants to bully NPCs and make fun of me for using the word "taint". I also have to be paranoid about having my mic on if I'm playing games or trying to stream something because she likes to burst into the room and ask me humiliating questions about my dick, or ask me if I like to suck dick. She claims to have tourette syndrome, but it's not diagnosed and I'm pretty sure she just likes to make me uncomfortable.

Anyway, the thing chiefly preventing me from letting this sentiment stick is the misguided sense of chivalry that makes me want to not make a person homeless, but like fuck it. She has friends. One of the aforementioned nerds has like a full apartment that he's not using in the basement of the house he owns. The car is mine; it's in my name and the payments on it were transferred from my bank account. I like the bed, but I'm not gonna try to buy her out of the half she paid for it because my budget is stretched to the breaking point just taking care of both of us. I'll actually be able to save up for things when I'm not buying her food and paying her phone bill! I'll sleep on my couch for a month and then order a Casper or something.

The other problem is that her name is on the lease and the lease doesn't end until July or something, so it's not like I have the ability to just kick her to the curb. I have no way of instantly severing, which means I have to be around for the ensuing full week+ of her wailing and crying, and generally being a suicide risk.

I really wanted to wait a week to have this conversation until after she finished finals, but apparently I'm a bad actor and she doesn't think she's doing anything wrong, so I ended up telling her what I know this morning and now there's just gonna be fucked up emotional tension until I either withdraw like I always do, or tell her to get out of my apartment in 2 months.

She accelerated the process by texting me "are you breaking up with me" right before my lunch break, so you can imagine I'm having a very productive day at the office. If I'm lucky she'll get that job and move in with our friend. Otherwise I'll have an excruciating next couple of months while the lease ticks down.

I just want to like, start the process of moving on with my life.

I didn't want to do a text message breakup, dammit.


Quote from: deadly_pudding
My hands are kinda tied on that one. She still doesn't have a job and I can't afford to pay any more than I already do in rent right now. I definitely can't double it.

It's looking likely that she'll end up moving into our one friend's house with the basement apartment, though, so hopefully I won't have to worry about it. She's also being a lot more calm about it than I was expecting, which I guess means her brain meds are working, so I shouldn't have to worry about crazy times. Probably



Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yeah. Thanks for helping me collect my thoughts on the matter, thread

I ended up breaking up over text, which is not what I wanted to do. She sent me a "are you breaking up with me" text in the middle of my work day~

The post-breakup logistics fucking suck. I need to call my landlord next week and see if I have options in the event that I want to renew the lease with just my name on it at the end of July. I'm seeing a worst-case scenario, where I live in my 2-door car for 2 months, because I have to make us both homeless out of spite because I can't actually afford to line up a different apartment for myself without like 6 months of planning while actually paying rent.

I really hope our friend with the apartment in his basement takes her on.
There's also a tertiary scenario where I go live there, instead, but I think that's not actually viable because I'm pretty sure that any move that makes my ex homeless on purpose probably sours me for people who are our mutual friends



So in May, he goes on about wanting her out of his place by August. It seems as if he is getting some self respect and may actually grow some balls and kick the crazy bitch to the curb. Hooray! Before you get your hopes up, realize this is a  :parsons: goon who is co-dependent.



Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yeah, I can totally rent a room around here in a shared house for like $300-$400 a month. That sucks, but it's what I'll have to do if she doesn't properly agree to vacate when the lease is up. I'm not signing a lease with her name on it again. She can either figure out something before the end of July, or stay in denial right up until I load my shit into a U-Haul. I'll probably have to come up with a plan with the landlord to deal with her stuff/cleanup afterwards so I can still get the deposit. I've seen this before with like regular roommates who drag their feet until the day their replacement is supposed to move in.
 


May 14th, 3 days after he posted his "I'm done for real!!" post. TL;DR he sleeps on an air mattress and has a plan to boot out his ex


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Progress report:

I'm hanging in there. I bought an air mattress because it turns out my couches fucking suck. She's going through like the stages of grief over here. She finished denial and/or bargaining yesterday sometime. Now she's mostly just pissed at me/our friends (she got shot down by our guy with the apartment in his basement, and her other friend won't let her couch surf), and also freaking out about living with her parents again.

But also like, it sounds like she's pissed because they basically just treat her like a normal tenant? Like, she has the rooms she's allowed to use, and the rooms she's not allowed to use, and that sounds like pretty normal "room for rent" situation to me.

I'm selling/bartering my kinda shitty car to her at the end of June, mostly as a "actually leave on time" bribe, because I've looked into it and I can scrape together a $1000 down payment by then if I actually try, for a used Camry or something that will be better than my 2010 Hyundai that's had its sparkplugs foul twice. And like, all of the ways of getting out of this thing with finality pretty much involve me spending at least $1000. Plan B was to get a loan to cover the deposit/first month of a new apartment and paying off the current one, and then just peacing out like 2-4 weeks from now . So, I'm pretty neutral on that topic. I've already spoken with some dealerships here. Because I'll have a down payment and I'm only looking at like a $10k vehicle, they pretty much don't give a shit that I filed chapter 7 bankruptcy 4 years ago because I also make like $50k at my job.

So, the timeline pretty much looks like:

    Now-June 30: sleep on an air mattress and just try to live a little more frugally than usual to get that car money. Landlord needs a signed letter from the ex stating that she will vacate herself from the lease July 30. Ex starts getting a stipend from her summer entrepreneurship bootcamp at the university, so she'll pay for some damn groceries.
    June sometime: visit the dealership and actually have them run the financing check to make sure they aren't just being optimistic with me.
    June 31 - early July: Complete the paperwork for transferring ownership of my car, so I don't have to juggle my insurance policies at the dealership.
    July: Still sleepin on an air mattress.
    July 30: Last possible day for the ex to move out.
    August Sometime: order a Casper or something so I have a real bed again.
    February: Holy fuck I can actually save up meaningful amounts of money again and by now I have enough to pay for dental work on my horrible mouth, because of course there's no dental on my health insurance



Now that Air Mattress Casanova severed, he has pussy waiting in the wings for him. Getting out of bad relationship then immediately getting into a new one is always a great idea.


Quote from: deadly_pudding
I can kind of understand that. After the breakup, I reactivated some of my old social media accounts and within like fifteen minutes a woman I've had like flings/short dating relationships with in the past contacted me, and we've really been hitting it off. I'm kind of glad that my ongoing fucked-up living situation is forcing me to take it slow by necessity, or I'd probably be liable to rush like directly into something with this girl who's very familiar to me, but doesn't have a history of emotional abuse like my ex.

That said, we're seeing each other on Friday, but it's just gonna be like a casual hangout at a local festival. I'm mostly just really happy to have somebody I can be like, emotionally candid with. I felt incredibly isolated with my ex. She drove off the couple of remaining friends I had still living here from college, and all our remaining friends were her friends first. I didn't feel like I had anybody to talk about my problems with, which I think is partly why I tried to tolerate so many red flags for years. I had to tread on eggshells constantly around my ex because she would hold her anxiety disorder over my head and make me feel like I wasn't allowed to be upset or uncomfortable with things.

Finally telling my ex to her face that there are exactly 2 outcomes of this situation, and they both involve me not living with her any more after the lease ends in July, was like ripping off a band-aid, and I feel a lot more free now even though I'm sleeping on an air mattress in the living room


Someone said they would talk to his ex about his love for nerdy things

Quote from: deadly_pudding
Be my guest, but good luck getting in touch if you're not an Iranian she can string along so she can look at middle class dongs without the risk of ever making physical contact or even being in the same time zone

Imagine spending years letting somebody convince you that you're a loser because of the media you like to consume, and then realizing that actually you're the successful one and this partnership is completely one-sided. I'm sorry you picked one paragraph out of my "oh fuck oh shit I need to psych myself up into kicking this person out of my life" essay with which to defeat me.

It's been like five days and I already feel better than I have in years, even though I'm still contractually obligated to share the apartment with her until July. I bought an air mattress. I'm probably being stalked by an old flame, but it's keeping my mind off of things

My ex is furnishing a letter stating that she will vacate the premises by July 31, and I'm meeting with my landlord on Monday to seal the deal.
After she moves out, I'm gonna go Marie Kondo on my apartment and throw out all the clutter that we accumulated as like a dysfunctional self-sustaining infinite depression loop couple. I'm gonna make that place fucking spotless and it's going to be really cathartic.



lol

COOL GREAT my ex's parents just decided she can't move back in with them. Now she's a mega basket case again and I have to like talk her through figuring out cheap student housing over the next 2 month


May 23rd  :adam:

Quote from: deadly_pudding
Update: so around 11pm last night she started loudcrying in the other room, then she started full-on shrieking and throwing things. I ran the fuck out of the house building with an armload of clothes, drove to a nearby grocery store, and called the cops.

Anyway, the officers don't think she's going to hurt herself, but I was feeling wildly unsafe. I'm currently freezing my ass off in a cheap motel room. I think I need to call in from work today. I got like 4 hours of sleep because of this.

Fucking, I don't know what the next step here is. I wanted to work with her and keep things civil. Like, she has 2 fucking months to figure out housing. I already signed the new lease so now I'm not even sure if getting the fuck out is on the table for me. I need to know if she's going to be like civilized, because I can't sleep in that apartment if I think she's going to have like a fucking psychotic break.

edit: decided not to call in, I'd rather be sleepy at my office than like wait for my ex to pick up her damn phone.


 :facepalm:

Quote from: deadly_pudding
Housing fallout update! Now she's framing the fact that I technically hold the power to not buy her food or let her use my car as abuse, which she is going to try to use to expedite her way into student housing. This is because, in a heated phone conversation earlier today, I told her once that I wasn't sure if I trusted her enough to stay in the apartment and keep buying her groceries.

Mind you, I'm driving her to a job interview on Friday.

Apparently I'm the piece of shit for being spooked by her ear-splitting banshee screams in the middle of the night.



Quote from: deadly_pudding
My ex is finally bouncing back a little from her parents telling her she can't move back in. She's got hella job interviews scheduled, and she found a room that she can rent for like $360 a month starting in July sometime. She's still like sullen af and she unilaterally renounced like 3 friendships over not being able to live in our buddy's basement.

I'm still bribing her with my shitty car, and I'll probably throw in the old minifridge that I just use for soda. My concern is letting her get too comfortable again, because like, I don't want to spend a single day longer cohabitating with her than I absolutely have to. Like, if she's not moved out and August 1 rolls around, I don't even know what I'm supposed to do
She won't be on the lease any more, and my landlord is pretty enthusiastic about getting her out of there, but also I've kinda gotten the impression that it's really hard in a lot of states to just like have somebody dragged out of your apartment if they lived there for a while, and if you evict then you have to evict everybody in the unit.



Quote from: deadly_pudding
I consider it more of a convenient way to unload the car that I hate >_>. Seriously, this car has been nothing but trouble. The spark plugs have fouled like 3 times, and only the first time happened during the warranty. It also needs belt work and the air blower will probably die again this winter. It's a 2010 car and one time it failed an emissions test This is mostly an excuse for me to get a much nicer (used) car and then not be constantly nagged into giving my ex rides with it for the remaining month and a half of the lease after. I think it has a KBB value of like $1500 before the work it will need in the next 6 months. Effectively I'm trading the car for a bunch of furniture I still like that she bought, plus a paltry sum of cash.

And yeah, I already hand-delivered a signed letter from my ex to the landlord stating that she will voluntarily leave the lease at the end of July, and vacate the apartment. I also have already signed the new lease from August 1 2017-July 31 2018 that only has my name on it. But I'm still really anxious about dealing with like the emotional fallout of kicking her to the curb on August 1 if she doesn't have her shit figured out by then.


I edited this post to cut out irrelevant shit

Quote from: deadly_pudding
I'm choosing to just try to live my life for now, because I was driving myself nuts with anxiety and contingency plans, and if she doesn't have a timeline for moving out by like July then I'll start asking my landlord what it takes to process her as a holdover, seeing that I have documentation filed stating that my ex intends to move out, and a signed lease starting August 1 that doesn't have her name on it any more.

Stepping back and not really caring about her emotional state any more has really helped. I've told her to stop asking me for things so I can save up for some things I'll need, like a bed. I'm still going through with my decision to offload my car onto her, because it seems like the most direct way to avoid spending 30+ days experiencing what it's like if my landlord starts to strongarm her, since she'll need a car to like get to a job and campus in this city with a public transit system so bad that I don't know why they bothered. I also hate that car, so that helps.

I'm also talking to a woman I used to date for a bit before I met my ex, and we're kinda hitting it off again. She slid directly into my DMs when I reactivated some dating profiles after declaring the breakup, haha. I think that on some level it's good that my living situation is fucked for a couple months, because it means I can't rush into something serious like a dumbass. We both had major regrets about letting our (at the time) kinda disastrous lives and schedules prevent us from going anywhere with it, and we both ended up in like catastrophic relationships with other people in the intervening years. So, we have a lot to talk about.



Quote from: deadly_pudding
Also, this was my ex for like the final year of our relationship. She hides out in the bedroom like 20 hours a day if she's home, and occasionally emerges to cook something. Uh, it should be noted, Xibanya, that a major contributing factor to that behavior pattern was the fact that she's been carrying out a steamy internet relationship with somebody else for at least 6 months, as she admitted in a limp attempt to hurt my feelings a couple days ago. Originally I assumed it's because she's a hateful banshee who despises everything I do for fun and can't stand being in the room if I'm playing video games or watching anime, which is true , but also she was having cam sex on our bed with some poor bastard who's gonna be her next ex.

It kind of pisses me off even more now that we're just stuck cohabitating involuntarily, because it makes me feel like she's trying to win me back or something when she cooks a meal for both of us. Like, fuck offff.

Anyway, I checked with my landlord yesterday, and she will move to evict my ex if she's not out by August, so I no longer have to worry about that. It will be miserable being in the thick of that situation, though, so I hope she gets her shit figured out before then.


Posts from June

Quote from: deadly_pudding
This is a way better deal than cohabitating with my ex. She doesn't make any money and basically doesn't clean. If she doesn't figure out a plan in the next couple months, my landlord is going to serve her with an eviction notice and then I get to continue sleeping on an air mattress while also probably witnessing the most epic meltdown of my adult life. I'm a notorious nester who is clingy as hell, and I love being domestic and oversharing, so I can't really imagine myself ever wanting to "take a break" like that.
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yeah, she won't be on the lease any more starting in August, but I'm pretty sure I live in one of those states where that constitutes being a "holdover tenant" and so she still needs to get a 30 days notice followed by a court eviction if she hasn't gotten around to renting a room by then.

edit: Now that things have kind of calmed down, I'd *almost* consider doing what you're talking about, if we weren't living in a single bedroom apartment. Also it would still be monstrously awkward bringing other girls home with me while my ex is my roommate.
 

JFC this entire post

Quote from: deadly_pudding
Cohabitation with my ex progress report:
I responded poorly to a joke she made in bad taste and snapped at her in the grocery store. She is now refusing to speak with me. She was, however, eating the food I paid for when I left to play board games with the friends I stole from her

For reference, we were joking about alt right people getting pissed about Wolfenstein 2 and making butt hurt tweets about it being "the game where you shoot people who you disagree with". Shortly after, I disagreed with her about a flavor of ice cream and she said "I'm going to shoot you," to which I responded, "Fucking try it."

So now it's awkward being at home because there's a palpable hate aura, luckily I'm not home right now.

Also I have a date tonight! We're going to a drive-in theater for a double feature. It'll be novel as hell spending an evening with somebody who actually finds me attractive
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yyyup it's time for the month and a half where I live with somebody who refuses to speak to me because my general terseness apparently amounts to "a series of abusive microsggressions".

It's like, okay whatever. She's still going to expect me to pay for groceries. Now maybe she won't try to get me to perform emotional labor all the time, though. Like, yes I'm being terse and dismissive. Maybe the fact that I broke up with you should be considered an indicator that i was sick of your shit? Maybe don't expect me to just put up with it like I used to when you say fucked up things for shock value like a teenager on 4chan. Maybe don't expect me to care very much about drama in your group project.

Keep in mind, this is the woman who unilaterally disowned like 80% of her friends because they wouldn't let her couch surf after the breakup. Yes, your friend with a spare room in his house is going to factor in the opinion of his childhood best friend and housemate, who doesn't like you. That's how having a bond with somebody works- you care about their opinion. Like 8 years of friendship with like several people fuckin evaporated in the space of a week. It's like my ex has 2 skills: financial accounting, and holding grudges indefinitely. I guarantee you that she's going to include me in her rogues gallery of evil ex-boyfriends. I wonder if my superpower will be "manchild" or "limp dick".

The saying comes to mind, "If everybody you meet is an asshole, then maybe it is actually you who is the asshole." She has a very binary idea of who her enemies are. This goes back to like the first year we were together, when she accused me of being "against her" when I attempted to mediate her grievances with our other roommate, a (now former) friend of mine. The red flags I ignored out of a misguided sense of... I don't even know any more. The sex wasn't even that good. I guess I put up with her because I was close to rock bottom when we met.
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
I'd say it boils down to how invested you are in continuing to live there. If she is willing to leave and you want to stay, push that agenda.

It sounds like you're probably going to have an easier time of it than me. I pay 100% of the rent and bills, so my ex will get a job and move out (or be evicted) by August, which means she's not strictly doing this voluntarily. It will likely get really ugly if the time comes when I have to serve eviction papers to her because she never answers the door and refuses to speak to our landlord over the phone, for some reason. I've pretty much made all the concessions I'm willing to make to bribe her to leave without a fuss, and I have a feeling there will be a fuss anyway because that's the kind of person she is

If you want to keep living in your current place, I would definitely take her up on her offer to move out.
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
She already provided the landlord with a written statement that she would move out at the end of July when I signed the new lease that only has my name on it. I'm pretty safe there. She would still get the 30 days notice to vacate, though, yeah. If nothing else it would light a fire under her ass.

The real drama bomb is going to happen when I assert myself if she tries to make me wiggle further on concessions I made to make it smoother for her to get the fuck out of my life . She's supposed to take over ownership of the car before she moves so that:
a.) She'll have transportation
and
b.) I can finally replace this shitty car


I suspect she'll try to get me to keep technically owning it, which is something I absolutely will not do. If she wants to have a car, I'm not going to be responsible for its insurance and maintenance. Either she becomes the full legal owner of the car, or she doesn't get a car.

I have to type these things out into this thread sometimes to confirm my sanity, because she is the worst, most toxic, narcissistic self-victimizer I think I've ever met. Everything is a sad conspiracy against her, everybody else is an asshole for not enabling her. She's a lot more articulate than me, and she'll lay out ways that actually I'm being the unreasonable and abusive one because the idea of having bills to pay triggers her anxiety or whatever. I think she says things like, "I'm eating this cereal, is that okay? It's one of your cereals," specifically to try and bait me into saying something like, "All the cereals are technically mine," so that she can twist it into me threatening to withhold food or something.

It's very nerve-wracking, which is why I've been doing my best to distract myself with housework and video games. I also started working out again, which is uh, interesting. I gained like 30 lbs since the last time I did any serious lifting, and have also been lazy as hell, so the new center of gravity made the squats way harder than they needed to be. But I think I'll make progress just fine; my excuses for skipping gym days and eventually giving up in the past involved me giving way too much of a shit about my ex's schedule.
 

June 28th.....to the surprise of no one. She must have given him a pity handy to earn her keep

Quote from: deadly_pudding
In what is probably my most shameful moment of weakness to date, I'm letting my ex stay in the apartment. I can't muster enough malice to make her homeless in Rochester, the former murder capital of the United States

My terms were she still needs to get a job and pay for shit, and she can't rely on me for transportation any more. So now I guess I can just refer to her as my shitty roommate. She cooked like 2 meals today on her day off, and didn't wash any dishes. I'm passive-aggressively ordering Thai food for just myself as we speak, because I can't be arsed to wash like every pot and skillet I own (what the fuck, lady) and then cook something.

We're past the heated emotions/viscerally miserable to be in the same building as each other stage, and now she's just kind of this horrible loser who lives with me out of pity.

Anyway, on the bright side I'll have like several hundred dollars freed up every month because she's going to start pulling her weight in August. And if she doesn't, then I guess I will print her out a google search for food pantries [/size]
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Honestly, the situation is livable. I've established my own general space outside the bedroom, and I'm just treating it like a studio apartment that she Kramers into periodically. My chief complaint at this point is that she still doesn't clean up after herself, which is just like a standard roommate malfunction. She'll either move out on her own next semester, or I'll be able to move out easily next summer, as opposed to this year when I only gave myself like 2 months notice. It turns out my budget develops all sorts of possibilities when I'm not buying her presents or going through the motions of taking her out on dates . I'll be able to afford to see a dentist soon, and finally get my thin enamel coated again for the first time since like high school.

I have no doubt she'll find a job; her primary obstacle this summer was the fact that she's contractually obligated to not have a job outside the entrepreneurship bootcamp until it ends in August. Worst case scenario, she works as a cashier on campus, but she's in talks with an accountant recruiting agency, too.

edit: I've also been going to the gym and practicing piano again, so I have enough of my own stuff going on to not be like laser-focused on the situation any more. I'm doing okay, I'm just kinda melodramatic.
   


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yeah, it's weird as hell. I still get mad at my ex (who I still live with, because my life is a catastrophe) when she tries to like take my dirty plates to the kitchen. Like, I feel like, in that moment, she's trying to pressure me to be domestic with her. Then later I feel like an asshole because:
a.) It's just dishes
and
b.) I'm gonna end up being the one who washes those dishes anyway
 

In July, someone asked if his ex was moving out Aug 1st or if it's dragging on and on. LOL at a woman dating a desperate man still living with his ex

It's going to drag on at least until like springtime, but she has a job now, so there's that. I'm making the best of it. I have a date with a woman who's actually attracted to me on Sunday

I managed to make the parts of the apartment that I primarily occupy stop being eyesores with my cleaning rampage a few weeks ago, so I'm satisfied enough with that for now. After forcibly shifting my own lifestyle to a healthier state, it's kind of become clear that I had picked up a lot of her bad habits over time. I fold my laundry again instead of living out of the basket

Anyway, this time we both have effectively a year's notice to have our own shit together by the end of the lease. She'll be eligible for her co-op semester by like March or April, so if she manages to be even slightly not a fuckup, she'll objectively be making enough to either move out or stay when I move out after that.
 


So his new flame sounds like a fuckup match made in heaven

Quote from: deadly_pudding
It's pretty much drama free ~for now~. Might pick up again in a couple weeks when I start pressuring her for the rent money she agreed to start paying in August. I'm also about to ask her to please move her laundry pile back into the bedroom, which I put off for a week or so because it's insane that I have to ask an adult to please pick up their clothes from the main living area.

I've been on a few dates with an old flame. She broke up with a fiance last year, moved back here, and she's still bouncing between her sister's houses while she tries to find an apartment she doesn't hate, so she's been very understanding about my living situation. It's all kind of weird and comical, though- we're both really attracted to each other, hence why she reached out to me when I resurfaced on dating sites, but neither of us has our own place to ourselves, so we've been making out in the movie theater like stupid teenagers.

Self care is going well. I've been counting calories, eating insane amounts of protein, and lifting weights, and my limits have gone up across the board like 60 lbs or more from where I started, and I've also lost like 12 lbs since June. I'm on the second unit of the online piano lessons I'm watching on youtube, which is starting to get into using both hands at once. I've also been trying to stay on top of keeping the apartment tidy better than I used to, hence the first paragraph where I don't want clothes lying around the floor.
 

August 8th

Quote from: deadly_pudding
Is there a German word for when you realize that your kindness is a finite resource, and it's close to being depleted? I'm at like the Peak Oil of continuing to be what I previously considered to be a "good" person.

The car that I told my ex she could take ownership of, once she could pay for insurance and stuff, needed repairs this week for engine trouble, and now I'm finding myself very seriously weighing the cost/benefit scrapping the car, buying my replacement, and telling my ex to pound sand. It's fucking insane that I'm still dumping money into this scrapheap. My saving grace is that my boss gave me a standing offer to help with the down payment on a replacement car, which at this point I'll have to accept, because I spent like half my saved up down payment on repairs yesterday.

Pros: I don't have to keep this stupid shitty car alive on the pipe-dream pretense that my ex will take it off my hands when she gets a job. I stop hemorrhaging money hundreds of dollars at a time every 8 weeks when this piece of Korean garbage has a malfunction, and start having four wheel drive, and maybe bluetooth in my radio.

Cons: She will absolutely spiral into The Dark Place if I drop that on her, and I'll spend the next 10 months being reminded daily that I'm a monster for directly orchestrating her inability to go to work or school. If I give her a bus pass and tell her to deal with it, she could probably get to and from campus okay, but this city's buses are hot garbage and she wouldn't be able to use them to get to a job reliably, especially if it's at night or something. Even if I keep giving her rides places, that's a shitty compromise, and totally incompatible with the concept of her having a job someplace besides the university campus, because she sure as shit won't be allowed to borrow the new car like she does the old one.

I thought about signing up for counseling this morning, then realized I probably won't be able to afford the repair bill if I do that. I think I don't have the social tools to assert myself in a way that can't be instantly deconstructed by a guilt trip

Here's the drama update you crave.

The yesterday I got scolded for not making dinner when I got home. Today I got a text message to "fucking fix it" because my ex doesn't know how to install a printer. I think she's also mad at me because Fourth Time Was The Charm for asking her to move her clothes and laundry baskets out of the main living area so I could actually clean the floors.

It's just like, fuck you? You don't get to haul your broke, dumb ass out of the bedroom that I pay for and order me around any more. If she expects to come home from her job (!!!) and find leftovers from dinner tonight, she's mistaken. That pork roast, that's the thing that is thawed, is gonna take like at least an hour to cook, and I'm not gonna want to deal with it after spending an hour after work at the gym. I'm having eggs for dinner.

I'm like *this* close to just actively treating her like she's a bad child to her face. Clean your room, or you're grounded. She's like 5 years older than me, how is this a thing
 


Quote from: deadly_pudding
Yeah, no, New York is one of those states where you can't weasel out of a lease easily. If my understanding of how renting works here is correct, the "fine" is the rest of the year's rent. I'm not gonna nuke my own credit in a pathetic bid to take my ex's down with me lol. I like how you seem to think I didn't spend like a solid 2 months obsessively exploring my options to the extreme detriment of like every area of my life after I broke up with her. Are you one of those Three Olives bourgeois goons who can just afford to move on demand? That must be fucking nice.
 

The end...for now. Explaining why he hasn't gotten his dick wet since 2014

Quote from: deadly_pudding
I can enlighten you on that one. I haven't fucked since like 2014. You just kind of give up after experiencing rejection enough times. In a particular emotional state, you can accept a lot of things that a healthy individual would find unacceptable, especially if you can be convinced it's your fault.

I experience erectile dysfunction at an early age because my body like actively annihilates testosterone. My doctor wants to change my medication soon because my bloodwork indicates that, after the initial uptick in blood testosterone levels, my system doubled down on breaking down the new stuff again

Anyway, my ex took that whole business extremely personally and decided that I was lying to her to whenever I said she was attractive. This, coupled with the fact that she hates her body and it gradually became a household capital crime to be physically intimate (she's fat, which I have no problem with whatsoever, but god help you if you even accidentally touch like the entire front of her, that's how you get yelled out of a dead sleep at 1:30 in the morning), I eventually just gave up. Why even try, if she hates being touched or kissed. Of course, later I found out that she's been stringing along like a small army of dudes from overseas, so I guess it's okay to be attracted to her if there's no threat of ever meeting in person.

Anyway, that's one of many ways to not have sex since 2015, while you were still convincing yourself that you needed to keep this exclusive relationship afloat.

Quote from: meat police
So she gets a part-time job and she'll suddenly need to crack down and save for a deposit, after that it's a leisurely apt hunt. You're looking at two semesters minimum at this rate and your failsafe plan is you move out?! That's insane man, c'mon. I'm rooting for you but I feel that it'll likely get worse before it gets better.


Almost 4 months to plan on GTFO wasn't enough time for him :tuss:

Quote from: deadly_pudding
There's not really other failsafe plans? My original plan to move out on my own this past summer was a bust because I gave myself too short of notice. I knew I needed to replace my car (even if I didn't decide to pass that Cursed Item to my ex, I was paying as much or more in repairs to keep it alive as I would on a car payment), so my choices were save up for a down payment on a car, or save up for security/first month at an apartment. Ultimately, I had to settle on the car instead of moving, because the up-front was a few hundred dollars cheaper.

The difference next summer is that she'll have a history of making enough money to at least be some other poor bastard's roommate. I'm on the hook for rent because my name's on the lease, too, so I can't just peace out and expect everything to be fine. She would have already moved out, but her parents wouldn't take her and none of her friends wanted to have her couch surfing. I got a raise and also freed up a really infuriating amount of cash by not buying her little presents all the time in a desperate bid to keep her happy, so I'll have easily enough cash to move into a probably better apartment when the lease is up next summer if I need to. Gonna finally get some dental work done, too I have a broken tooth that probably needs to go, and I need that plastic shit that they coat your molars with that I haven't had touched up since high school.
 

Quote from: Lian
I think the concern is that you would have to live with your EX for another year. She sounds like a bad flatmate regardless of her baggage.

If her name isnt on the lease she and where she stays is no longer your problem. Time to look after yourself and that includes a home where you can be you, where you are free from reminders etc
 

 :geithner: :evola: Goon acts like a responsible adult by cleaning up after himself. So much for her not being on the lease so he can kick her out!
Quote from: deadly_pudding
Both of our names are on the lease

Originally she was going to submit paperwork stating that she was going to remove herself from the lease this year, but then her mom decided she couldn't move back in like a week after she initially gave her a vague answer.

Believe me, I would love to not have her around and continuing to seriously impede my lifestyle. Let me tell you how I've been living for 6 years: I consider the fact that I now neatly make my bed every morning and put all my laundry away to be a form of inadvertent psychological warfare against her. It was such a chore trying to keep a clean house around her that I eventually gave up and moved to her level, apparently.

I think this is one of those cases where constant ambient emotional abuse during her childhood has rendered her extremely hostile toward concepts like "clean your room". I wouldn't say it's a huge fight, but usually sometime around the fourth time I ask her, she begrudgingly moves her laundry basket into the bedroom, washes the dishes that she was letting pile up in her room, and then later gloats/bargains about how she "did a lot" today. And it's just like, "that's nice, lady. I spent 2 weekends throwing shit away, dusting and washing surfaces, and moving furniture to make this place less of an eyesore. So stop impeding the maintenance on that process."

Meet Maggie Fletcher. She likes to skydive and talk about skydiving. She broke up with a guy after dating him for 3.5 years and dated her ex-skydiving instructor on the rebound. Did I mention she likes to skydive?? SKYDIVE!!



Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Well, I wasn't going to post here because I thought I had my shit together, but I guess I don't, so here goes.

Things have been bad with my ex for about a year. Back in August I told him I was unhappy (for about the third time in nine months) but that at this point it was my fault for staying since he wasn't going to change anything, and that the next he heard about it would be me moving out and I couldn't predict what would happen with us from that point.

The following month, I started skydiving and it was like a band-aid. I was spending all my weekends at the drop zone, having the time of my life, and it distracted me from our problems, which reared their head again last month. So I finally pulled the plug. He was okay, I was okay, we were civil. We are still cleaning a few things up, like I have some property over there and he's still on my health insurance, but all in all we're civil and it's been a clean break except for a few logistical things here and there.

Enter my skydive instructor, who professed his feelings for me right around the time of the breakup. We started dating and I rebounded hard. He said all the right things and I figured since my relationship had been "kind of" over for about a year, and that I'd had a chance to process that it was ending, it wasn't a true rebound, right? Well then he and I had our first huge fight and I'm having a really disproportionate reaction to the fact that we may not make it through this. Normally, after a one-month whirlwind romance, you'd cut your losses, right? Well, that's not what's happening here. I'm losing it, and I don't know how much of it to attribute to my ex and how much of it to attribute to the new guy.

I am not sad about my ex--I don't call, text, or email him unless necessary. But I've barely known the new guy a few months and I'm losing it. I've had to delete his number and text messages so I won't call him because I need some space, which I admit is kind of fucking batshit, but I do feel better knowing I'll really have to search him out if I want to talk to him. And I won't be able to skydive until the 1st at the earliest, so it's not like I will just see him around or bump into him.

I don't know if we're going to break up or not. The fight was basically my fault, but he's not letting go of his hurt feelings, and it's been a week, which is a disproportionate reaction itself, so this relationship is probably untenable and I'm going to have to deal with the fallout from two breakups instead of one and it's going to suck and it's going to hurt but goddammit I'm 37 and I've handled worse than this so I will get through this with as much grace as possible.
Wish me luck, goons.



Out of the frying pan and into the fire. I'm betting she had a thing going on with her SKYDIVING instructor while she was with her ex.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
This was hugely poignant for me. If I talk to my guy again, which I hope I will, I'll explain to him that my judgment and reactions are going to be off simply because my circumstances have changed so much in such a short time. No one could make a transition from steady if boring three-year live-in relationship with a dull but practical lawyer to an exciting, exhausting, mysterious whirlwind romance with an exciting skydive instructor without a few adjustments. Anyone would have overreactions and lapses in judgment and the transition won't be seamless. He went through something similar a couple of years ago, and I doubt he handled it gracefully either, so maybe he'll understand. And if not, then he's probably not a very good guy anyway and I should be thankful we're not staying together.


Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Talked to the new guy and he eased a lot of my concerns. He had previously said he wasn't going to throw the fight in my face, and just wanted to move forward, and when we talked, things were very much back to the way they were before--he was cheerful and pleasant, and happy to talk to me. He had been pretty silent for a few days, but it turns out his buddy had been living with him and borrowing his car while he took care of some business, and he was trying to be supportive to him.

I keep thinking about what FreakofScience said about how my reactions to everything are skewed, and that's totally right. I'm sitting here fretting and stewing and crying like the world has ended because he only texted me three times on Wednesday, and when we talked yesterday it was like things had never changed between us.

There is still a chance this could blow up in my face, but we both seem to want very much to make things work, so there is also a chance this could end up being really great.

I'm visiting family for a week and will see the new guy for New Year's and then an awesome three-day weekend of as much skydiving as I can handle, weather permitting, and I think the time and distance will do us both some good. Merry Christmas everyone!


Quote from: many johnnys
Definitely a rebound. And it looks like it's run its course.



Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Yeah, all signs point to rebound. It sure doesn't feel like it though. I knew this could bite me in the ass, and I knew I was setting myself up to get hurt. Not my best form to get involved with my instructor (former instructor--I'm not a student anymore so it's not like there's anything dodgy going on there), but hopefully we can be mature about it. It really sucks, though--I wish we could have what we had, but something like that has to be too good to be true. 


Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
I spoke to the new guy again and he admitted he was still apprehensive about the relationship. While he seems to have let go of the problems stemming from our fight, it's more that he says we went too fast, too soon, and honestly, he's right. We went from zero to 100 in a matter of days, and even though we knew each other for a few months before any of that happened, we didn't really go through a dating or "getting to know you" phase. He started by saying maybe we should just be friends, and I said if that's what he wants, I just want him to be happy. Then he said he wasn't sure he could just be friends with me, that he missed me, and maybe we should just see how things play out. We canceled our New Year's plans but I know I'll see him this weekend skydiving, and we agreed we could maybe do something then. He said he doesn't want to break up, and I don't either, and that he does love me, but that we need to take a step back and start over and go slower this time.

It sounds like bullshit as I'm typing it, but he's never lied to me or fed me lines before so I have no reason to believe he's anything but sincere, and honestly this sounds better than the chaotic breakneck speed we were going with before. Honestly, I barely had time to breathe and heal from my last relationship before jumping into another really serious one. Trying again at a more natural pace is a lot more appealing to me, and will let him get to know the real me, rather than scooping up the newly-single, broken, damaged individual I was after I ended things with my ex.

I'm optimistic because it's obvious that we really care about each other, and I think we can be mature enough to see each other regularly without any kind of drama. I'll be happy to see him this weekend--we have missed each other a lot, although I think the space has helped with our hurt feelings a bit--but I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out without the pressure of it being super-serious right off the bat. This is the smart decision we SHOULD have made right after I broke up with the ex, rather than jumping in headfirst. We'll see, breakup megathread. Wish me luck.


Her ex is such a great guy but she was anxious to jump on her instructors cock so fuck her ex.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Haven't talked to the new guy, and don't plan to until I see him this weekend at the drop zone. It's really helped me refocus on my own healing and understand that I'm not upset about him, just readjusting to not being with my ex. You just don't go from a three year relationship like that without fallout. Without the new guy distracting me, I'm able to focus on my feelings from the breakup and start to get my head back on straight. I still struggle with some insecurity and doubt about the new guy, but I think my perspective is in the right place now. Even if we end up not staying together, I think I'll be okay, because I think what I'm mostly dealing with is just processing the breakup. I guess when I said I was OK from the breakup but a mess from the new guy, that wasn't totally right.

I know a lot of what I just said makes sense, but I think I'm making progress. I have talked to the ex a bit, but only about car stuff. I don't think he wants to be with me any more than I want to be with him, but there are definitely some feelings and adjustment happening. I'm actually looking forward to the process and what happens from it, because I was with my ex for a lot longer than I really should have been. He's a great guy and I want him to be happy, but he and I weren't right for each other.



Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Things with the new guy are over for the time being. I don't love that, but it's probably for the best. I've spoken to him a bit and learned that he has gone on a date, which sucked to learn but it's okay. Our relationship, as short as it was, probably wouldn't have worked out in the long-term, even though we have strong feelings for each other. We agreed to be friends, put the past behind us, and not engage in any drama. December has been such a shitshow, between ending my long relationship and all the issues I've had with the rebound guy, that I want to be drama-free and just have fun for awhile. So I joined Match and went out last night and got a phone number.

Which just led me to the realization that I'm not ready to date. I want to move on from my ex, but it's been a long time since I've been single, and even longer since I ended a long-term relationship. It's especially hard because I never wanted to leave him in the first place. I loved him very much, and probably still do a little bit, but I only left because our relationship was so bad, and after talking to him about it multiple times and trying to fix it. I know I did the right thing by leaving, but it hurts so goddamn much. I miss him and our life together, I miss his family, even his stupid little dog.

Even if you know you did the right thing, and you are doing everything you can to heal, HOW do you deal with the bone-crushing emptiness and loneliness of moving on? I know this needs to happen, but I don't want to spend the rest of my life crying about it. I know it's only been a month, and the rebound didn't let me properly grieve, so I'm dealing with it fresh, almost like we just broke up recently. But it hurts so goddamn bad that I can't even get out of bed right now.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Not that I recommend it or anything, but heartbreak is a very effective diet. I have lost about seven pounds over the past month* between stress and being so upset that I can't eat more than a tiny amount at a time.

*That doesn't sound like much, but keep in mind I'm already pretty thin. I wanted to lose a couple of pounds, but now that I have, I'm a little shocked at how I look.I know...I'm working on just eating the healthiest food I can find. Even if it all tastes like cardboard, at least I'll be getting the nutrients I need. I haven't been drinking hardly anything besides water and coffee, though. Alcohol makes me feel sick too, though I'll occasionally have a glass of wine before bed.

I'm not trying to turn this into a diet or anything--I have a history of disordered eating already, and I'm running a marathon in five weeks, so I need my strength. If my appetite doesn't return very soon, I'm going to go talk to someone. It's one thing to process feelings and let them affect you, but I'm not going to let this affect my health.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
I was just about over the rebound guy when he texted me. He mentioned he's thinking of moving away. When we were together, his whole thing was if things were going well with us, he'd stay, but now he's back on the fence. I think he wanted me to be sad and ask him to stay, but I kept it conversational and instead asked what he'd be doing for work if he moved, and made a joke about all the people he'd miss if he moved. I think it set me back a little emotionally, but I'm keeping all the things I didn't like about him in mind and just working through my feelings about my real ex. Trying to stay the course.

Also, my appetite is coming back. I can't eat as much as I used to, but I can get through half-meals, and food is starting to taste more like food rather than cardboard. I think I'm getting better, guys.
 

Skydiving Hunk didn't work out well so she wonders if she should have worked on her relationship instead of hopping on a new cock. She still uses him for labor to fix her car.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
A disproportionate response to what? For the record, I'm going through the same thing--dumped my guy of almost 3.5 years because of issues that weren't getting any better, and now I'm second-guessing whether we could have worked it out if I'd talked more, or made him talk more, or asked more questions, or maybe moved out but not broken up (for the record I was mostly unhappy with our living situation; I was in a position to move out and he wasn't).

I saw him yesterday and it was hard. All I wanted to do was talk to him and work it out. He works on my cars, because most service shops are completely inept, and he's a genius with cars, and he does it for cheap. He spent two hours fixing what a service station took three hours to mess up, and fixed some other stuff as well. He did a really good job keeping it all about cars, but I just wanted to grab him and cry and explain why I left and ask if he still loved me and it was raining and it was all very poetic.

 I bought a bag of potato chips and ate half of it instead.
I'm still paying for his health insurance too. It's not super expensive, but it's money I could certainly use. But at the same time I don't want him to go without health insurance because he's diabetic. I guess eventually I'm going to have to harden the fuck up and say he's got to get his own. Thank god the ACA won't let insurance companies discriminate against him anymore.
 


Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
From my own story, rebound (skydiver) guy has decided he misses me and wants to see me again, maybe start over and see if things can work out. The weather is clearing up a little so I was going to go up there anyway (it's been three weeks, between weather and some traveling), so I figured I'd head up Friday night to see him. We spoke Monday and it was like old times--I didn't realize until my alarm went off that we'd been on the phone all night. Then things got quiet again. I figured I'd give him (and myself) some space, and if I go up there tomorrow night and things are weird, I just won't stay with him. Just get a hotel and chill by myself until it's time to skydive.

I feel much clearer about it this time around. I've spent our time apart processing my feelings for my ex, and it's put things in perspective. I'm seeing rebound guy as a prospect, not my security blanket, and willing to put up with much less bullshit and drama this time around. While I'm not completely over my ex (will I ever be?), I'm approaching this as if it were a casual dating scenario rather than making it into some huge important relationship. We'll see how it goes. If it's a disaster, I may just write him off and move on. 
 

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Rebound guy was saying all the things I wanted my ex to say, and my ex was so tepid toward me I ate it up and over-invested. Rebound didn't get scared from that--even now he says he meant everything he said at the time--but because of our fight he got scared. Right now I feel like he's a little hot and cold, too, which I mentioned to him, but I'm taking that as part of the circumstances right now. I'm hot and cold too--not 100% all in with the rebound guy. So we're both hot and cold, and that's all right. A month ago that would have crushed me, but some space and time have led me to realize I was really upset that the guy I loved most--my ex--didn't make me a priority. Once I started dealing with that, my feelings for rebound guy were put in perspective--he was a band-aid. I feel bad saying that because I do care about him, but when we were together it felt like he was the love of my life. Totally dramatic, I know, but I realize now that I was putting my feelings for my ex onto him. If we're going to get together, and this goes for you and everyone else who's starting over, we both deserve a clean slate with no leftover expectations from our last relationships.
 

Talking about the 5 stages of grief

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
All of this is so true. I go between huge waves of denial (rebound guy) and despair (ex).

Rebound guy canceled our date tonight, which was okay. I may see him tomorrow. I came home and cried over my ex. It made me kinda realize that I am using rebound guy to distract myself from my feelings for my ex, which is not fair to him. It's not that I don't have feelings for the rebound guy--I do--but let's be real, he's a distraction. I am distraught over my ex. I am disappointed about the rebound. There's a big gap between the two, which makes sense given the emotional investment in each.

Speaking as a lady of age...older ladies rock! Most of the guys I've dated have been 4-7 years younger than me, and it works out. It sucks for online dating, because at my age (37) I can attract 30 year olds but I don't show up in their search parameters. Know whose parameters I show up in? 52 year olds'.

My Match profile is still disabled. A waste of $60, but whatever.
 


Oh boys...I love to skydive *giggle* I'm the only woman alive who does this, PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
The best I got was, "Oh, you guys broke up? He was such a cutie (true)....oh...that's your new guy...he seems...not your type (also true)."

Considering it was my stepmother who can't talk about anything but her grandkids, and this is the worst I heard, I'm calling it a win.

Flirting IS fun...and being able to travel around (platonically) with other male skydivers and go skydive in other cities, without having my ex worry about it, is also fun. Skydiving is a predominantly male sport, though, so I have to be careful to remind them that I am not ready to date (except the rebound guy, which is probably going nowhere).
 


Her ex is a lawyer but they lived with his parents in a huge mansion??

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
Who moves out and who stays should probably be determined on who can afford the place (if either) better alone, or with a roommate. In my case, we lived with his parents in a huge mansion, I was unhappy and made plans to meet up with potential roommates even before I broke up with him. Not to ambush him, but just because I didn't want any hostility in his parents' house and I wanted it done as quickly as possible. The worst part, there was still a week of me living there before I could move out, and we lived in the guest house. I had hoped he would stay in the main house, since there were four vacant bedrooms, but he kept staying in our little corner of the property. It was uncomfortable to say the least, but most people don't have the privilege of multiple bedrooms. So there's definitely someone sleeping on the couch, in another room, or building a pillow fort on your side of the bed. It sucks all around.

My ex was kinda overweight, and I typically go for very fit, active guys. Yet...he was the sexiest thing I've ever seen, and to this day is still the hottest guy I ever dated. I don't know, it's just the right combination of features and personality. I don't think I'd ever go for a chubby guy again, but he completely did it for me. I guess everything else was SO good that the extra 30 pounds didn't really factor in. Basically, there's no accounting for taste.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
It's been two months, almost to the day, since I ended my 3 1/2 year relationship, and a month since I ended the rebound (who still texts and calls me from time to time).

Yesterday, for the first time since my first breakup, I felt good all day, didn't close my office door to cry about the ex or the rebound, and felt genuinely good all day long.

Today I was at the gym and for the first time noticed all the cute guys around me. It reminded me of when I was learning to skydive. Everything is so overwhelming in the beginning, that you really only notice your instructors and how windy it is. I remember the first time I noticed the plane after exit, the first time I saw noticed other canopies, the first time I noticed how fast the ground was coming up at me...and this was the first time I started to notice other guys. Not in a "I need to be in a relationship RIGHT NOW" kind of way, but more in a "hey he's cute, if he asked me out I'd probably say yes" kind of way.

I was talking to the rebound today (last week we talked and he said he wanted to try again, and we've been chatting intermittently since then), and today he said "let me call you back in a bit" and it occurred to me that if he doesn't...I don't really care.

I wouldn't have believed it a month ago, but all that stuff in the OP is totally true. I know I'll have setbacks, but things are getting steadily better. I don't feel like hyperventilating when I think of my ex, and I don't feel a weird sense of urgency to move on with the rebound. The part about exercise is especially true. I signed up for krav maga, and it's absolutely as aggressive as its reputation suggests. I was already active, but between training for a race or working out at the gym in the morning, with krav maga at night, I feel fucking amazing. You will too! Just let yourself cry, talk to people you trust and care about, and stay active and busy as possibly. And when you start to feel better, buy your friends/parent/sister/whoever put up with your crap for a month or six a nice present as a thank you for getting you through it.
   


February 18th, 2 months after hooking up with her instructor. You can just not go you confused cunt.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
So, I'm needing a little advice on how to handle the fallout from the fling with my skydiver friend from last December. For reference, I usually go to the dropzone to jump and stay all weekend unless the weather is bad. Last week we had a big argument and he asked me not to come back. He doesn't own the place so he can't keep me from coming, but he does live onsite so if I go there and start, say, flirting with other guys, or getting in his face, he can't exactly get away since he lives and works there. The obvious answer is, duh Maggie, don't do those things, which I don't plan on doing. Guys do flirt with me--the sport is 85% male and I am a youngish single woman--but aside from rebuffing their advances, I want to make any contact with him as peaceful as possible.

I've already decided to go only on days when the weather is good, and not to camp out there (which I usually do every weekend) until summertime, when there are a lot more people camping out and it's not just me and him onsite overnight wondering what each other is up to. The more bodies onsite, the fewer chances for us to get on each other's nerves. I'll also cut back on the beer-drinking and dinner-having with random skydivers, because we all always end up hanging out at the end of the night, which again leads to more chances for friction.

I've also decided that, now that the weather is warming up, I can pack my rig outside and avoid him there too. Most of the professionals (instructors, camera flyers, editors, etc.) work inside the hangar, and I tend to run into him there. If I move outside, I will be uncomfortable because packing on the ground sucks, but it'll give him some space.

I just want to lay low and not draw too much attention to myself, because I can still see the pain on his face when he looks at me, but I also know he's as frustrated as I am with the drama. But I always have the choice to leave if it gets too hot--he doesn't because he lives and works there. So I want to make it as painless as possible by staying under his radar. I'd go to another dropzone, but there are four others in the area--the two big ones are better for more experienced skydivers, and the other two are teeny-tiny. I do plan on visiting the smaller ones, but there are a lot of classes and meets at my home dropzone that I don't want to miss out on. So while I'm not going to let him chase me away from skydiving, I do want to make things as pain-free as possible.

Is there anything else I can do to mimimize contact until he stops being mad at me? Anything I'm missing? I keep trying to tell myself to just stay away for the time being, but that will just hamper my progress, and there's really no reason we can't coexist peacefully. It is a BIG dropzone. But I'm not trying to ask for trouble, so any suggestions are welcome.


Dropzone Bicycle  :stewart: :reagan: :stewart:

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
Interestingly, there is someone I met a few weeks ago who is interested in me, and he asked for my number right in front of the ex-fling (not knowing the history, of course, he's new to our DZ). I guess I'm starting to realize, based on the way this guy's acting and some of the things he's said to me before and since we split, that the fling meant more to him than he initially let on. It's some pretty heavy stuff, honestly.

I guess part of what I need to do is stop caring what people say so much. Last week, upon seeing me walking back from my car with the guy who'd asked for my number, one of his friends decided we were hooking up and that I was the "dropzone bicycle."* This infuriates me to no end, but I am determined to keep my personal life off the DZ. We are, after all, flinging ourselves out of planes to our certain deaths unless we can keep our focus, and I really like this sport and don't want to die doing it.

I guess I know what I need to do--hold my head up, ignore the shit-talkers, and stay as safe and sane as I can out there. I was just wondering if I was on the right track, or if there was something else I could consider doing to keep the peace.

*Skydivers may have a cool hobby, but that does not mean we are all decent people.
 

Look guys, I SKYDIVE and have pics to prove I SKYDIVE!!

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
Because the petty part of me wants to make him realize what he's missing and come crawling back? I know he still has feelings for me and I still do for him, too. I know how ridiculously childish and stupid that is, and I don't want to be like that anymore, so I'm aiming for peace instead. I genuinely do want him to be happy. Ideally, with me, but I realize how unlikely that is. We're just too destructive to each other.

And you never have to ask twice to see skydiving photos! I didn't take these, but they are stills from a video taken by one of my jump partners.

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
I went out for drinks last night and somehow managed to resist the temptation to message him. I guess that means I really am on the road to recovery. I want nothing more than to be back with him, but if it's going to happen, it needs to be done in the right way, not after a few too many, while I'm still feeling too raw from everything.

I did cancel a date using the (true) "I'm not over my ex" excuse. I wasn't interested in the guy anyway and he was getting too pushy.

I highly recommend skydiving if you can swing the expense. It's a dangerous sport, to be sure, but safer than you might think if you do things the way you're trained. It basically saved my friend's sanity while she was going through a divorce, and it's helping me put things in perspective, too.


Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
I've been doing fine since my breakups but my running route took me past my and my ex's old apartment today and the nostalgia kind of got to me. I really miss living together with him. But I know the breakup was the right thing to do, and I know I'm on the right track. I will probably have to end up changing my route for a little while, because the times we lived together in our own apartment (we lived on his parents' property the last year of our relationship, and two years before that in our own place) were the happiest times I can remember.

I couldn't skydive this weekend due to the weather, so I went and ran errands and went shopping to keep myself busy. It kind of reminded me of our weekends when we were together. I often joked that we spent so little time together, despite actually living together, that if we broke up, our day-to-day lives would essentially be the same. This weekend basically proved me right. It was exactly how it had been when we were together and before I started spending all my time skydiving, except I went to sleep alone instead of with him. That's sad, right? No relationship should be that lonely, right?



 :tom:
Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
On another note, I've started to move on myself--my girlfriend wanted to introduce me to a visiting skydiver, and as soon as we started talking (not even flirting), my own rebound guy noticed and started cockblocking me. He talks about me to my friends--who are tired of hearing about the whole thing--but won't talk TO me. Come on, guy, we dated for thirty seconds in December, time to move on.


2 Weeks after "we dated for thirty seconds in December, time to move on."

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
My ex-fling and I have started to build a hesitant yet friendly rapport--we were getting to a place where I could visit his place of work (the dropzone) and we could joke around. This weekend he visited the dropzone I've been spending most of my time at, and it didn't go well. I thought things were fine but I guess I said something that set him off and he sent me a series of semi-vicious text messages. I didn't respond and I don't plan to, and I guess I don't need any advice. I'm just sad that we can't work things out and be friendly. I'm so tired of the hostility and the fighting and the nasty quips back and forth. I hate that we can't talk things out, and anything I say, even an apology, will be met with more vitriol. I hate that when I don't respond to him, he corners my friends to make sure they have his side of the story, when all of our friends want to stay out of it.

I hate that this "relationship" lasted three weeks and we're still fighting six months later. I hate that our community is so small that I can't get away from him without leaving the sport. All I want to do is skydive and have fun and learn, and that's why I moved to a different dropzone. He didn't have to show up. I don't know why he came. He used to brag about never having to pay for skydives because he was a staff member. I feel like I can't get away from him. I'm tired and I don't want to fight anymore.
 

Quote from: Maggie Fletcher
 
I did mention the whole incident to the safety officer at my new DZ, who knows me well, and showed him the texts. I said he's a very good skydiver, and very safe, but emotionally he's a disaster. The safety officer seemed concerned and said he would keep an eye on the situation. I don't think my ex will show up again for a long time, even though he liked the place--he's just too attached to his own DZ and pretty broke and cheap, so it's not like he's going to want to spring for tickets when he can skydive for almost free anytime.

I just took my ex off my insurance. After eight months. It hurt. I guess it was finally admitting that we were not going to try to work it out.

Now just to sell off the cars he still has, and get back the last few items still rolling around in his house.

I thought I was fine, I've been dating around and feel happier alone than with him. But it made me worry--what if he needs coverage? I doubt he's signed up for coverage on his own. No one's looking out for him, and at 31, he should be looking out for himself, but he's not. I know it's not my job but I don't think I'll be able to live with myself if he suddenly has a health crisis. I know that's not my responsibility and it should all be on him but I can't really help it. I still care about him.
 
It's just hard because I do still care about him and probably always will. He's a good person and we were friends before we got together, and will probably be friends again at some point. But we broke up because he wouldn't grow up and take care of himself (wouldn't move out of his parents' admittedly fabulous mansion, wouldn't go to the doctor or dentist, 30 pounds overweight despite having diabetes and would not consider using insulin, wouldn't get a job, etc.). Our relationship was going nowhere and I figured if I'm going to be effectively alone, maybe I should make myself available to someone who might care about himself and me.

It really is too bad, though. Despite his laziness, he's a sweet, kind person and I miss him a lot. I just really hope it doesn't take a major health crisis (like it did before when he was diagnosed with diabetes) for him to wake up and take ownership of his life.

Can you imagine a conversation with her?

When I lived in Florida I knew a girl who knew one of the guys from Blue Man Group when she lived in Nevada. Holy shit, I'm not kidding that she brought up the fucking Blue Man Group in every conversation. I thought at first that I should ignore her. But then I realized what a challenge it must be for her to work in a fucking Blue Man group reference so often. Damn, was she ever talented. Talented in the arena of bringing up Blue Man group in every conversation. She was a fucking pro at that.

Wonder how she would feel if a couple of attractive college girls started showing up?

Back at summer camp we had an early 30's mother of a kid show up and stay for the whole week.  Didn't think much of it then, but now I realize she enjoyed the attention of all the 16-20 year old male counselors, since she was the only woman in 20 miles.

No idea how her husband felt about it.

Next resident of Goon Heartbreak Hotel is Agoat. Rick, aka Agoat,  is a 25 yr old male who kissed a drunk married woman and he liked it.

Here is his Steam account- http://steamcommunity.com/id/Agoat

His Discord- https://discord.gg/gv7Nuva

He has 6 pages of posts in the breakup thread so I skimmed the pages/condensed posts and found the choice bits for us all to laugh at. His posting saga begins on March 23rd 2016. Goons will put up with all sorts of abuse/mind fuckery because they are so afraid of being alone  :parsons:


Married drunk chick gives him attention and falls for her after a drunken, sloppy, spit-swap:


Quote from: Agoat
I'm in a weird position, I figure this is the best thread to post about it.

So there's this girl I know from the local bar my roommate owns. She's married. I've always kinda liked her but it was never an issue. We get along really well but I've never made a move or anything. She never did either aside from wanting to hang out and chat (along with everyone else there.) The other night everyone got hammered. My room mate had asked her to take me home, which she did, but then kissed me when I went to get out of the car.

She's apologized since. We haven't had a big talk about it and I'm unsure if there will be one. She said she's embarrassed and that she's sorry and I told her not to stress it cause of alcohol etc.

Here's the problem, I caught feelings out of this whole thing. I'm stressed out about it and I don't know how to handle it. Anyone have any suggestions? I've never been in this situation before and I want to be over it.

She may have a something for me, in the past she's asked me almost every other night if I was gonna be at the bar and she'd make an effort to see me. Most likely a result of something else in her life but here we are all the same. When I think about it there might be another talk about it, I figure I'd just be honest and respectful. I've always considered her a close friend that's off limits.



Someone made a good point- She's drunk enough to kiss him and she was DRIVING? Sounds like a winner! Bonus foreshadowing in his response:


Quote from: Agoat
This is a good point... She probably shouldn't have been driving. I wasn't in any condition to argue, I could barely unlock my front door. If she wasn't that drunk then there's probably going to be more to this story in the coming weeks.



March 29, 2016: A New Hope That Agoat Learned Something  :lolno:

Quote from: Agoat

A follow up to my story a few days back about the married girl, I went with her and her husband for drinks last night with some others. She stood near me a lot like a conversation was supposed to happen. I didn't bite, truth be told I don't know what to say. She was especially clingy to her husband. I'm happy for and all but I got really annoyed. I think I'm over it. Funny, it only took a week!
 


August 2nd 2016: Dawn of the Dummy

Quote from: Agoat

E/N, I need your advice. I've been with my girlfriend for about 5-6 months and she's been the most wonderful girl I've ever been with. She's also going through a divorce. She's over it emotionally but she has a lot to do with paperwork and selling their property. This has led to a weird problem where she needs time to handle that stuff and she wants to spend time with family. This leaves me in a weird place where I don't always get to see her a lot. It's not the end of the world, but she makes plans often that she cancels or cuts short. It's happened before and things always got better, but it's wearing down on me.

I've decided at a minimum I'm going to pull away and let her come to me more. There's no sense in me reaching out only to upset myself. Should I reconsider my relationship otherwise or should I ride it out and hope for the best? I hate considering leaving but I'm at the point where when she calls to tell me she's coming over I'm expecting her to cancel. It hurts pretty bad.

A bit of an update. Girlfriend is making more plans though acting a bit strange. It's only been for a few days so there's not much to go off of there. I guess it's an improvement.

She's also at a party tonight that her soon to be ex husband will be at. He tried to make a small play to get her back last night. I'm really upset about it. And scared.



"Is she being good to you?" Never mind she's fucking around on her soon-to-be ex-husband and likely has mental issues!

Quote from: Agoat

Well, for a bit she was cancelling plans with me or cutting plans short or telling me "maybe" when I wanted to see her. And to an extent I understood but it got to be so often that I ended up bringing it to her attention and THAT ended up leading me to get very anxious. Recently she's been telling me "No more serious talks, I want to be goofy with you" so I'm trying to go with that the best I can but when I can tell she isn't completely relaxed so can't help but feel anxious still.




August 9th they went out on a date and it was great!! August 17th, however, is a surprise to no one:


Quote from: Agoat

The girlfriend and I split. She needs time to get her divorce sorted, unrelated to my prior freak outs. She kept things open but said just to let her know if I date someone else. Probably the best break up I've had, but we'll see what the coming days bring.

It's a lot of weight off my shoulders. If we can pick it up later, cool. It'd be awesome to have a simpler relationship with her. If not, I'll have a great friend down the road.

It was actually kinda cool. The night ended up with us naked on the couch drinking wine and having an awesome time. We know we'll see each other again in some capacity, and knowing that it wasn't necessarily and issue with me makes me feel good. She told me such wonderful things that I'll never forget. I'm sure in a few days I'll be miserable but for right now I'm just going to enjoy the good times we had.She asked me to tell her if I date someone else, but if she ends up ready at a time that I'm ready for her then I'd love to give it another go. I suppose in a way we are "separated", but I don't feel any pressure to wait. It felt like we're open to it if the opportunity presents itself.
 


August 18th & 19th: :parsons:

Quote from: Agoat

There's been word popping up of this girl hooking up with an old ex of hers recently. I don't think I could go back at this point. It's really been a lot.
Severed contact today. This hurts. Bad.



August 25th: Poor Choice 2:Dummy Boogaloo. Sept 3rd: "Just realized how manipulative the girl I was with really was. Oof." and "I'm in a weird place of missing my ex and wanting her to never speak to me again."

Quote from: Agoat

So... My sever didn't go as planned. But our relationship seems to be in line with what she wanted and I'm about to move out of state in a month (and she's going to be moving two hours away from there) so uh, I'm in a good place. I feel less attached, as we technically did break up. But there's much less pressure now. I'm back to my hobbies and it feels right.

It feels like she'll be around a while and we'll pick up where we left off if we get a chance to. What a weird place to be.

It wasn't even a long relationship but it still hurts. I thought she was going to be different and not just be another manipulative person out to take advantage but she ended up like the rest. I've never wanted a relationship to work out so badly before. I hate this.



Sept 8th: New State, New Beginings, New Marriages to Destroy!

Quote from: Agoat

I move to Marietta, GA on the 17th. She's technically moving a few hours away towards the end of October but honestly without big changes I couldn't go back. Apparently dating in the Atlanta area is easier for guys than it is in small town Winter Haven, FL so I'm kinda banking on the idea that I don't have to invest everything into every relationship I come across anymore. In a lot of ways, the more I see this girl the less I want to be with her. She doesn't hold herself accountable (even when she was presented with the idea that it looks like she cheated) and is hardly considerate of others. I'm sensitive and honestly don't have time for that. (Even if she wanted a low-key relationship, she should have been clear from the start).

I am actually leaving town and while I'm sure she'll call here or there I am absolutely not waiting on her for any reason whatsoever. I was worried that messing with my ex would make me miss her but honestly the heartbreaking part has been realizing truly how bad she treated me. And that fact makes remembering the good times even harder. She would take me on her parent's boat and we'd go on the chain of lakes. I miss it. I miss when she was good to me.

I miss what I thought she was. Honestly I want to shake this girl and yell at her for being dumb. She's about to be 30, post divorce and she's playing games like she's in high school. I miss her but only really when I'm bored at work. Tonight is my last night so I should feel better going forward. I hope you're doing okay as well.



Sept 11th: Agoat goes from wanting to shake a bitch to fucking a bitch. She also cheated on him, most likely with the man she was actually married to.


Quote from: Agoat

My sorta-ex was really kind to me yesterday. I'm game to have a glorified FWB situation since we're both moving to other states (but still 2 hours away) so long as there's no games. I feel really good today. She's been a rockstar helping me pack, at least.

I'll enjoy this week for what it is, then. Thank you. There's evidence she cheated on me during the relationship too and that's been on my mind. I've always hated the idea of things being final in any relationship but the reality here is I'm better off.

On the plus side, Atlanta owns. There's all sorts of stuff to do. I love it here. I'm going to work on myself before I try to work on a new relationship.
 


October 5th:

Quote from: Agoat

Spoke with the ex. The emotion is gone from her. Dunno why I wanna hold on so bad. This is why I need to cut it. Just the other day she called me in tears because she finalized her divorce, and I thought we had reached a point where we could be kind to each other. But now here we are. I feel used. I moved for a fresh start, not to wallow in self pity. The shitty part for me is that I don't mind being that support for her as long as she treats me right, but I guess that's not what she wants. I cared for her for so long, then got the "relationship" and now here we are. I'm not trying to make excuses for myself but I at least wanted something to come out of all this.

Her loss, I guess. I'm not sure why you'd do this to someone who just wants you to be happy, but I'll just have to send her to voicemail when the regret hits her in a few months.




October 6th: I want his post to be printed on a billboard where he can see it every damn day. Tattoo it on the inside of his eyelids, on his forehead etc.


Quote from: Agoat

I looked at my post history. From the first post I knew she was bad news. That's amazing.
 


October 6th & 7th:Oof

Quote from: Agoat

*doesn't answer text* *every device on every service I have gets a message*

I was really hoping her talking to me was a matter of convenience and it'd be easy. This stuff really isn't a problem until bedtime tbh. Lols. I did leave her a message beforehand that I needed space and couldn't be the friend she needed. It seemed like the right thing to do?
No response, and she's already removed me from her Facebook literally a minute later.


This hurts really bad but I guess it's time to heal. Oof.
 


October 10th and 12th: He's totally blocked her and is over her


Quote from: Agoat

 I've felt so strange since I blocked my ex. It feels weird but at the same time I know this is what is best for me. I already don't feel the need to talk to her (now talking about her is a different story, I'm absolutely not over it yet). I've buried myself in my job and my hobbies, I've got a Counter-Strike local in two weeks I'm prepping for. She's gone for good. This server started off really well but I'm missing her now. But why now? She treated me so poorly, I hate that I'm feeling like this.

Not breaking the sever, though. Gonna keep on moving forward.
 


October 19th: Still holding the sever


Quote from: Agoat

I found myself thinking about when I knew my ex as just a friend. She was married at the time. We met at a local bar, there was a community there. It was really fun. Seeing her then felt nicer than most of the relationship did. I find myself longing for those nights again.

Maintaining sever. It's gotten easier. Lots of cool stuff in Atlanta. I'm not gonna act like I don't miss what I thought she was, but I wish I had listened to you guys sooner. As far as I know, she hasn't tried to contact me. I blocked her, sure, but there's always a way. It stings but at the same time I'm thankful I haven't had to deal with it yet.



October 29th: She didn't love me, I was used!!


Quote from: Agoat

I dunno. I didn't really have a real relationship. I was very much a scapegoat for her to get out of a marriage. (Funny, given my username.) In a normal breakup I hurt but at least I had nice memories to take away from it. All I have here are times where she'd make me feel awful as some weird manipulation thing. It isn't worth dwelling on but I keep going back to it. I'm far from perfect but I loved her, even if I was losing my mind towards the end.



December 30th: Rewrites his history :tuss: :tuss:

Quote from: Agoat

If it makes you feel any better, I went from going on full tilt to being pretty much over it pretty quickly after I severed. You owe it to yourself to be happy.

She will know that you've vanished, and in time she will understand why. It's time to take care of you instead of them.If it makes you feel any better I went through something similar. Got cheated on and she wanted to stick around. It's a weird place to be in, having to accept something that you may not have directly witnessed. Cut her loose and enjoy your new beginning. Don't sweat it otherwise, it's not easy but you will be just fine.





June 25th 2017: Agoat has a (new? or is it his ex?) girlfriend and it's not going well :facepalm:


Quote from: Agoat

Found myself in the premonition phase. Talked with the girlfriend and she says she feels "that we may have gotten together too soon". She says she's growing distant because I don't spend time with her, but when I do it feels like she doesn't want me there. Going to do my best to turn this around. This is a perfect description of my girlfriend. Everything here is crumbling apart and I'm figuring out what my next move is, but I've never felt anything worse than trying to be good to someone only to have them push you away.

I recognize I'm not perfect (especially lately where everything is taking it's toll on me), but I also recognize how I've grown and how much work I've put into trying to be a good boyfriend. I worry that I've also had unrealistic expectations, but I also have come to realize that desire for 100% happiness came from not being comfortable in my relationship. And that's largely because I'm being put on tilt because of the manipulative girlfriend in the first place. Funny thing is she was constantly criticizing me for being insecure and stressed, but that was largely her doing.



August 16th 2017: Agoat is dating a womanchild- she hides their relationship status on Facebook when she gets mad. :tom:


Quote from: Agoat

I go into a panic at the thought of leaving her. There's definitely some sort of underlying issue with me in regards to that. I feel like she's willing to work on it but is wanting to see me work on my problems as well.

My issue is she does petty things when she's upset. She hid our relationship status on FB during our last fight and hasn't put it back yet. I'm not trying to hold it against her, it was a bad fight and we both were very angry. We almost broke up then.I'm doing my best to let go of little things and work on improving myself. I just started my new job which I'm putting a lot of effort into. In regards to my relationship I'm just trying to be good to her instead of being self-centered about my issues. For the most part I was doing well, but being shut out so much put me back in that place of jealousy. It felt almost like when I'd grow comfortable there was a new curve ball to handle. She did support me for two months while I found work. She doesn't ask a lot of me financially, though she is asking me to pick up rent this month since she looked out for me for two months. Unless her goal is to get a month of rent paid then dump my ass I have to imagine she's just not good at this. Doesn't change how unhealthy it is for me but you know.

And yeah, I should get back to being me. I'm gonna focus on my stream more, I'm trying real hard to make that a real source of income.

As a side note, the last few days have been better. Even though there's not a lot of affection from her she's definitely putting in effort to be kind. I can't decide if it's progress or me settling.

I've told her stuff like that has meaning to me since, but hasn't put it back yet. I get she's evaluating the relationship but putting me down in the process isn't gonna help. She'll tell me to tell her what's wrong then she'll get mad when I do because it's not nice to hear.

I type all this realizing I should probably go but geez I don't want to. I just want her to relax and love on me a bit. That's it.
 


August 28th: He takes a love language quiz with his girlfriend. I don't know why I find it so damn funny they took a quiz together.


Quote from: Agoat

I recently did a love language quiz with my girlfriend and it shows outright how you feel and show love. It's worth trying out. As a clingy person, I find adding an "I love you" to that kind of rejection helps. But don't be afraid to look at yourself as well. If you don't go for physical affection often you should work towards offering more (within reason). Be understanding of feelings while presenting your own!


August 30th, Sept 8th & 10th:


Quote from: Agoat

I guess "let's work on things" actually means "Let's start a conversation on getting better then get upset and shut Agoat out".

I didn't even accuse her of anything. I literally said I need more physical affection.

My girlfriend finally came forward and said she doesn't know what she wants us to do. I appreciate her finally speaking up. She feels like she does relationship things because she has to, and that we moved in together too soon. I've tried to be easy going but I still feel like we fell into a cycle of needs not being met. She stops doing something, I say something about it, then it becomes a chore. I don't want to be without her again but that might be what happens. I'm sure everyone is going to say it's for the best, but I have this feeling in my gut there's a way for it to be good. Maybe I'm crazy.

I'm saving my money, hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst. Nvm she's actually just starting shit now

I don't know what world someone can live in where they can be mad that someone didn't tell them they were having a panic attack that wasn't even disruptive.

 
 
Sept 10th 2017: Goons tell him to GTFO and to re-read his own posts to see the insanity.

Quote from: Agoat

I'm saving money and leaving. I'm done with it. I'd rather face my crazy brain break up insanity than be blasted for something I can't control.

I mean, real men just replace about 90% of all that shit with work, projects, entertainment, friends and liquor.

If all those lines of text had been narrowed down to about 2-3 lines he would have known well enough to just use her as a fuck buddy. It's all that free time and mental hula hoop sperging that's fucking him up.

E/N has made me really believe that women want dumb guys. Not stupid, just blissfully dumb. Guys who say yes, fuck off, fix it, come back and wanna shoot a load in the woman, at the end of the day. I've been acting a lot dumber with the pregnant wife, lately and it's been fucking great. She's due soon and the end of the pregnancy is a fucking nightmare. Instead of being a thinker and considering her tone of voice in the way she phrased whatever she said, I just go "Uh huh" "I unno" or "Ok" and it works like a charm. No more arguing or having any opinion/emotion on any stupid bullshit, ever. That's the woman's job. Just "Uh huh" "I unno" "ok" It'll be over in 5 minutes and I'll wind up with what I want, in the end.

A lot of people would do right by themselves to not be so eager to do tha sex and map the other person out. Put that psych education to use for those that went to college. I never trusted women that have a reckless causality about sex. They're usually about the gold digging or will be a wanderlust under your nose.

I wish editing wasn't allowed in E/N so bless the posters who quote the posts before they got removed  :reagan:

ChickenOfTomorrow is one example of post deleting after it was quoted. Own your fucking post! She asked if it was ok to post about breaking up with a friend.

Quote from: ChickenOfTomorrow
eh actually its not that much of a story.

we were friends and got too close. he did a sexual thing to me without my consent (due to thoughtlessness, not malice). he confessed to his gf, pledged to work on his relationship with her, work towards rebuilding trust, etc.

we went "no contact" for 2 months (not a proper sever - I regret that). during that time i was trying to process what happened, but i did a lot of it by talking to mutual friends and that obviously affected their perceptions of him.

we met for a mediation earlier this week (we are part of a small activist group so being able to work together in the future is important), and are due to meet back up again in a month or two.

tonight i finally blocked him and his gf on everything I could think of. I know i have gone about things the wrong way by not severing earlier. i'd like to one day be able to be acquaintances, maybe even friends.

i feel guilty and ashamed and rejected and deeply, intensely sad.


Small activist group, sexual touching w/o consent, not maleficent. Sounds like a fun group of people. The women have more body hair than the "men" I'ma bettin'


Another post got edited so thanks goon for quoting them! Apologies for the chopped up post-

Quote from: ChickenOfTomorrow
I'm not forbidden from talking about it, I just have to be mindful of the effect it would have on others - specifically his gf - if I talk about it in public.

I know he would never have done this on purpose. He's a big impulsive idiot, not a predator.

How will I know when I'm ready to see him face to face again? I can probably push the second mediation back as long as I need to, but i am exceedingly obtuse about how my feelings relate to my thoughts.

I have no desire for a romantic relationship with him, but I still feel like I want to continue to have him in my life. I know the sever will help with that feeling but I don't know how long it will take to go away?

Mediation this week was the first time I saw him in person since the day it happened, and the first time I was able to tell him that what he did to me, he did without my consent.

You know that Simpsons clip where you can actually see the point Ralph Wiggum's heart breaks? I saw him realize what he'd done and his entire... his entire self just collapsed.

Part of the mediation agreement was that I wouldn't talk publicly about the situation without being mindful of the impact it has on other people. I'm thinking it's ok to talk here because no-one here knows him or his gf and they're not members.


Anne Weightly weighs in "they aren't good leftists" LMAO


Quote from: Anne Whateley
Yes, it might hurt his girlfriend if people know he broke his promises to her and he assaulted you and she's standing by him. That isn't your fault or your problem. It's a result of his actions, not yours. Everything I said still stands. The people telling you to think of her at your expense are not your friends, they aren't good leftists, they aren't trustworthy. Btw, the guy who assaulted me had a girlfriend too. I really do get this situation. Your comrades are not supporting you. This isn't what support looks like. If you think it is, that's concerning.

This isn't actual transformative justice, either. This is the reason bad actors love "transformative justice."

I'll drop it now, but please feel free to email me at annewhateley, gmail, anytime.



You can stop being a coy cunt and just tell the story instead of fishing for asspats and sympathy. Fuck you.

Quote from: ChickenOfTomorrow
jesus christ I literally only admitted to myself that this was non-consensual FOUR DAYS AGO

before I posted ITT I had only told three people

all of them have said they will support me in whatever I choose, no-one but him has asked me to moderate or limit what I say about this, the agreement from the mediation is non-binding

I think you're jumping to conclusions with limited information and trying to fit me into a narrative that doesn't match what is going on.

Please drop it

I'm pretty sure I have a girlfriend now, but it all feels very high school because we're dancing around our dumb living situations
I'm stuck living with my ex, of course, because you all know I'm a catastrophe of a human. She's like bouncing between her two sisters' houses because the apartment she wants won't be ready until November or something.

I think she's soldiering through it because she wants in on the delicious home-cooked meals that I keep photographing for her lol. We're planning to do a bunch of Halloween-adjacent activities in the next month or so, she's all about haunted houses and corn mazes and stuff. My ex thought holidays were stupid, so it's been a few years since I did anything fun around Halloween.

Have a couple of Goon Snippets

Quote from: Jabarto
I just got dumped on Thursday. It was only a 6-month thing, but it still hurts like a bitch. What gets me the most is the timing; I just got fired on Sunday (wasn't even there two weeks, I was never told why exactly, and it's the second time in a month that I lost a job), and the week before that things were better than ever. She says that she's worried about the patterns we've been falling into and that what we had was unhealthy (I have crippling depression and she's schizotypal, plus neither of us have much of a social support network), but she always told me that she liked who she was around me, and that she wouldn't just up and leave me as soon as a problem came up. It all changed so suddenly that I almost can't believe it. Like, it was so fast and so out of character for her that there's still a part of me that wonders if her Celiac disease flaring up early in the week wrecked her mood (she once told me that when she stopped eating gluten she stopped wanting to hang herself from a tree), and she might still "come around" after a while, but I know it's probably just wishful thinking on my part.

I think I'm doing okay on the severing thing, at least; I had to text her once or twice to arrange a time for me to pick up some of my things, but now I don't think I'll have a problem waiting a month or two before seeing if we can try to be friends again. Plus I'm finally in therapy again and looking into doing more volunteer work so that's good, I guess.

 :tuss: :tuss:
Quote from: Jabarto
Well, it's been about 3 weeks since I was dumped. She was my first real relationship and we lasted about a year and a half. The breakup itself was amicable enough, but a few days after she broke it off it turns out my vasectomy last year didn't pan out correctly and she had to have an abortion. She was furious and blamed me for it, since I didn't get the followup done (I know, stupid of me). I told her I thought she was being unreasonable, as I had asked her to help me get to the clinic to get tested many times, and she didn't let it stop her from having sex with me, either. That made things even worse and on Monday she said she never wants to be friends, that she doesn't remember any good times between us, and that she regrets ever trusting me.

So yeah, I've been a wreck for the whole time. And now I can't tell if I was really the asshole here or not. But at least the worst is over and now that we've severed for good I can start to move on, I guess.  I guess it's just a shock that she was the most important person in my life a month ago and now she never wants to see me again, I almost can't believe she's in her right mind here. Not that it matters, it's not my decision to make.

Quote from: Corridor
Well, my boyfriend just called me, to tell me he wasn't on holiday like he'd been saying, he's actually moved to Tasmania and lives there now. He was too spineless to tell me in person, because he didn't want to put with my crying or whatever. Zero indication before this that anything was wrong. Just a casual mention of, "Ugh I hate living at this place I wanna move to Tasmania, but people like you and my other friends are keeping me here."

"I'm almost regretting it because I actually miss you."

I basically want to die. He knew I have abandonment issues too, along with an anxiety disorder. I dont really have any friends in this town I can be with, everyone I know here is just like, friendly acquaintance level of closeness.

Up until this out of literally nowhere, this was the best relationship I'd ever been in. I shared more of myself and trusted him more than anyone else, overcame major psychological issues with him and everything. I mailed him while he was 'on holiday', he said he missed me and everything was fine between us.

Fuuuck and NYE is the anniversary of our getting together. We hooked up at a party and had a fantastic time. We were gonna go to the same party again this year, I've been preparing and looking forward to it for weeks.

e. it sounds like something out of a dark comedy... like you wake up one day and your boyfriend calls and has moved to Tasmania but wishes you "all the best". It's like... not something a real person would do.

 :rolleyes: E/N Sadsacks and volunteer work.

Not one has ever posted "I'm just gonna apply for unemployment, drink myself retarded for 2 days straight, spend the 3rd day recovering and really pound the pavement from day 4 on."

None of them can ever enjoy their unemployment phase, in life. It's a constant, re-occurring plague, to them. Either they aren't eligible for benefits, they have nothing saved up, they're living off their parents or a whole combination of the above.

They're all single and childless, yet none of them seem to ever have the option of squandering a whole summer on unemployment. It's sad, really. They have no friends and free time is toxic.

My summer of unemployment was one of the greatest times in my life and I know I'll never be able to do it again.

I get it, volunteer work is great and all but Vegas odds are in favor of virtue signaling, in most of these "muh volunteer work" forum posts. That or you won't actually get around to doing it and even if you do, you should probably be looking for a job/internship instead.

Greetings fellow shitlordians! I hope everyone is having a lovely day.

Up next on the heartbreak and bad choices list is a lovelorn goon named leftpas. He posts YUGE paragraphs detailing his trouble with his on and off girlfriend so I will cut them down to the relevant points.

leftpas story begins in March of 2013 Girlfriend of 5 months gives him mixed messages so instead of telling her to fuck off with her minds games, he doubles down and keeps after her.

Quote from: leftpas
I'm 29 and feeling quite devastated over a relationship that ended two weeks ago. A 5 months relationship, mind you. I know this might sound ridiculous, and it probably is with some perspective, but I'm feeling like shit. Fucking wall of text, but you know how these things are: you feel like every detail can make some total stranger understand what's happening. TL/DR at bottom.

She's an American girl working and living here in Europe. I'm a native from this European country. From the start of the relationship she had always been the one trying to pull towards a more "serious" relationship. At first I wasn't into it, but I started being voluntarily pulled into it and started feeling that way too. I guess I fell in love and didn't want to recognize it. We spent every weekend together and many weekdays too, with me sleeping at her place... it was basically couple life.
.....
Then on thursday I had to hand out the report and we didn't talk. On friday, I messaged her and she told me that she was going to another city (actually, my home town), for a festival, because some friends had told her there was a space in their car. I was quite upset, because I had wanted to show her my home town, and I couldn't find tickets, as it was so sudden. She then started throwing some break up hints: "Don't know if we're in the same page". "I don't want you to get mad that I'm going to your town but I don't want to stop doing things because of you". "I don't want to have this job forever".

Then I finally got a ticket and told her I was coming. She said cool but that I had to look for a place to stay because she hadn't talked to her friend about me. This whole thing gave me very bad vibes, of course I had a place to stay, but fuck, it sounded like she was trying to actively make me not go with her and her friends. Not just "Hey I have this chance to go, sorry if you can't make it, we'll see each other when I come back don't worry", but more like "Oh, you're going, alright, I'll be with my friends".
.....
TL/DR:

Girlfriend of five months changes almost overnight from feeling like a serious couple to initiating a break up, trying to lay the blame of it on me. Also she travelled to my home town with her friends looking like she actively didn't want me to come. Then telling me that she did that because they were going to do drugs and I don't use them. After breaking up she starts sending messages and wants to meet, but either doesn't feel too interested or is palying mind games.


A goon told him she's playing mind games and his response-

Quote from: leftpas
So, you think it's a mind game? I know I sound stupid and I'll probably look back at all of this in some time and cringe. But now I'm feeling quite fucking depressed. We shared a sense of humor, she was sweet, we had interesting conversations, she loved to cuddle, great sex etc etc... And to be deprived from all of that in just a finger snap, feels like hell, even when I know you'll probably think "hey it's just been 5 months man, harden the fuck up".
.....
When we had been dating for two months or so, there was this time when she had this weird jealous episode[...] Anyway, later that night, she told me if she could talk to me for a bit. I said yeah. She dragged me apart and started saying how much of an asshole I was because I wasn't paying attention to her, and that I was talking to those girls etc etc. I told her to chill and not make up weird stuff, I wanted to be with her and I wasn't doing anything wrong. She admitted being jealous. She then said:

- I regret having told you I was jealous... now you got the upper hand in the relationship.
- What? There's no upper hand, come on. This is not a power game! Let's just be honest and not fight over stupid stuff.
- Yeah, it IS a power game...

She's 27.



27 years old and playing high school drama games. She's a keeper!

I might be feeling shitty, but I'm not sitting around. I'm going out as much as possible (well, another thing that annoys me is that I was almost new to this city when I met her, so I only have a handful of friends here because I dedicated all the free time I had in these last three months, the busiest of this year at my job, to her). I'm going to a club event tomorrow, and to a birthday party on saturday where my friend's girlfriend is going to bring a couple of her female friends. I re-joined the gym today. I went out last sunday to a club and came back home with a girl. Still, I can't take her out of my head, maybe because I feel like I should have told her how I felt about her.
....
Still, I could understand the whole "we're not in the same page" thing, I'm not some psycho ex-boyriend not accepting a break up. What is weird is that she was so invested in the relationship (she wanted to celebrate Valentines, she wanted to call us each other "boyfriend" and "girlfriend", got jealous, etc), sent me romantic messages etc... and then it all changed overnight.

Still, maybe I wouldn't understand that weird change, but what I think has been a bit shitty is is her behaviour with the break up: trying to lay the blame on me not talking to her and breaking up with a text message, and after the break up messaging me, offering to meet, then not replying, etc etc.

Going to the gym to get  :clint: taking home another girl  :unparsons: things are looking good.

You mean "what you have to gain" right? Well, I think we shared so much stuff I felt really lucky to have found her. She was sweet, great sense of humor, sensitive, intelligent... And I've been thinking why I'm feeling so miserable after not seeing her, and think that I was feeling something much bigger than just feeling good being with her, so I might be in love even when we don't know each other for so long. It wasn't so much time, but we had a really intense relationship, seeing each other every weekend, many weekdays even sleeping at her place, etc.

Of course I might be blowing this all out of proportion, her mind games might be affecting me into thinking I need her more than I do, maybe I just got used to the relationship life again which I missed, or any other of more reasonable explanations, which is why I post here, to get more perspective from the saner people reading this.

And that is why I re-post your stuff here so others can laugh at you.

She sent me yet another text saying that she "needed to talk to me about something soon" and that she hoped "I was ok". I told her I couldn't meet today anymore and that maybe we could meet next week. She didn't reply to my message since Wednesday and I already made plans for today, so I'm not scrapping that because she finally decided to meet... I guess it's just another mind game, even when you get that burning sensation that you need to know what the hell she's up to, if it was something serious (she's going back to the USA, she's sick, pregnant, whatever), she would have replied earlier or she would phone me.

 :bait:


Quote from: leftpas
Argh.

OK, yesterday I told her I couldn't meet, because I already had plans. I thought that if it took her a day and a half to even reply to my message, it wasn't that important (she could have said "Oh, don't know if I can meet on Friday, I'll let you know", but I didn't even get that). She then replied that ok, but that she wanted to "talk to me about something, soon". And that she hoped I was ok.

Well as part of my "don't stay at home" plan, last night I went out to a club with my sister (it was her birthday) and some friends, trying to escape from the mind game webs or whatever I was stuck into.

At 5:00 AM, while dancing, I notice I have an SMS on my phone. It was her (SMS meaning she wasn't at her house, because if she had been she would have used a whatsapp text message), saying: "Hey it's me. What u up to?".

Kept on dancing and tried to get it out of my mind. Then, wake up this morning and find a text message (whatsapp this time) saying "Hey, can we meet briefly today?". What do I do? If it was something important, like something serious (pregnancy, ETS, she's going back to the USA) or if she had realized that she was in love with me and had made a mistake (sounds stupid and cheesy, I know) she would phone me to try to meet me right? Is this a fucking game still?

Let the games begin...again!  :thumbsdown:

April 2013

Quote from: leftpas
Anyway, after receiving some texts from her, including one at 4:00 AM, we finally agred to meet because she "needed to talk to me". I know it was a dumb thing to do, but I guess I hadn't told her everything I felt and also sounded like she had something important to tell.

We met and at first she told me that she had seen a genital lump/twart, so she didn't know if she had HPV. She was scared because she doesn't speak the country's language (she's been living here for more than a year), she's American and doesn't know if she's got healthcare, etc. Things then took a turn to talking about our relationship, and I told her I thought the way she handled everything was pretty shitty. Then, it went to us starting to get emotional and confessing our feelings.
......
I told her I had developed some really strong feelings for her, which surprised me because we had only been together for 5 onths. She told me she loved me, and I told her I loved her. Cue crying in the restaurant, both of us hiding our tears. I told her I had even considering rellocating for her if she decided to go back to the USA, or moving in together, registering as a couple so she could get the nationality... everything, because I had been so happy with her. She kept on going about how she loved me and that she didn't know what was wrong with her, that maybe she was "running away" from me because she saw things getting too serious between us, and that she was kind of like that way, running away from serious stuff. She said she had run away from her dying mom in the US before coming to Europe (when she left the USA, her mom was ill, so I gather that she considers that she was "running away" from her; later, she died while she was here and had to go there to the funeral and everything). She said she had been feeling really weird lately, thinking about her mom's death and the whole thing with the genital lump, that she was feeling that she might die, that a lot of people died at her age (27) etc.
.....

Next day she texts me. And like a fucking dumbass, I replied. I know I shouldn't have, and that I should have told her "Hey, I'm sorry, but do you remember what I told you last night? I have really strong feelings for you and I need to get over them if you can't be with me". But I didn't, I replied and we talked about trivial stuff, then about us. She said she had been thinking about me, that she didn't want to give up on us but that she was confused, etc. She then asked if I wanted to meet again, next day. I said it was hard to wait for a full day to see her again (dumbass error #2), but that yeah I wanted to.

.....

Next day, saturday, she texts at 6 AM me about a picture I uploaded on facebook telling me "I like your shirt". I don't reply because. During the day I get another text telling me how cute I look in that picture. I don't reply either. A few days later I get another text: "Hey". I reply with another "Hey" and she starts having small talk, how's the day, how's work. I reply with polite but short messages, when she tells me about her job I only tell her "nice". No more contact since that (tuesday I think).

I've started dating this other girl who is funny, intelligent and attractive. And I'm still annoyed at the fact that I keep thinking about the first girl, about how true it sounded when we both said we loved each other. I know you're gonna tell me I'm stupid and I guess I am but I needed to vent a bit... thanks for bearing with me.


TL/DR: Severing is hard when you have hopes and she's not following what you both agree on. Not sure if "Stuck in the Limbo of an Uncertain Breakup" or me simply being a stupid silly little man having hopes that everything would be ok again.

He finds a new woman to date but is still obsessed with Brokebrains McBumpycrotch  :facepalm: No mention of him getting tested for STD's after her telling him that.


Quote from: leftpas
I would be a bit happier if she wasn't the first thing that pops up in my mind every morning and the last thing I think of before falling asleep. It's really fucked up, I try to control it but it's hard. Speaking about bitterness, I've read that it's alright to think of the flaws and things that you didn't like about your ex, in order to fall out of love with them. However, I'm worried about becoming bitter or resentful towards her. I don't want to hate her, I just want to stop feeling like shit (and I don't mean "I don't want to hate her because she's such a nice person", no, I mean it as in the "I know that if I ended up hating her I would still not feel alright 100% because I would be harboring negative feelings, which in the end, suck).

I keep thinking stuff like the fact that she was overweright, ate like shit and did no exercise (she hated walking "long" distances, which could be 30 minutes walking; I live on a fourth floor and when she came over she would get to my door panting and like if she had performed a really heavy exercise... I don't like going up four floors either, but it seemed to much). She had spent more than a year living here and couldn't even have a basic conversation in the native language (I sometimes wondered what the hell was she going to write she thought to put in her resume at age 27: "spent a year abroad, didn't study anything or learn the language of that country". It also sounded a bit like a shallow personality trait, like if she only spent time with other Americans and British people, living in their little bubble without interacting with locals or learning about the society around them (I didn't want her to become a social activist, but we're in the midst of profound political, economical and social changes in this country and I'm pretty sure she didn't know anything about it, nor seemed interested).

She also sometimes threw fits and jealousy attacks (it all ties together: this time where we thought we wouldn't be able to catch the tube, she god really moody because she thought she had to walk home, which meant probably 20-25 minutes at max, 2 tube stops; we finally caught the tube, but she was still bitchy and didn't want to kiss me while sitting on the wagon). She also talked about her roomates and the fights they had, and how she could use stuff as "leverage" in their fights, which sounded a bit like strategically analyzing having fights with people.

Also, there were a couple of weird moments. There was this time where I hadn't properly put on the condom, and it slipped into her vagina, so I stopped having sex and I told her, because we had to get it back right? Well, she didn't want to stick her fingers into her vagina, and asked me "Won't I poop it out?" which was a bit . Those two things are not even connected! I eventually managed to take it out, but I wonder if she was going to let it inside until it came out months later.

Other than that, she's perfect!


Quote from: leftpas
Fuck, she texted me this afternoon: "Are we not talking to each other?" after I didn't reply to her last text wishing me a happy holiday. Don't know what to do. Remind her that I asked her not to contact me? Just ignore it? Get mad?

Emotional vortex here I come
....

Fucking bad day. Even when I guess I'm doing the right thing, the fact that I didn't reply to her message asking if we're not speaking to each other makes me start to have these wild ideas: what if she's having second thoughts, why did she tell me she loved me after we broke up, what if she was waiting for me to make a move...

At least I know that even if I wanted, I couldn't contact her because I deleted her number and the text message got deleted. But just the thought...


Quote from: leftpas
fuck, I just logged on OKCupid and she has just reactivated her profile. I know I shouldn't give a fuck about it, but the thought train just started: is she just looking to hook up with people there? Why wasn't I one of those hook ups and and why dis she started asking to get more serious? I would be happier if it had been just a one or two nights stand. Is she looking for a serious relationship? Why did she tell me she loved me then (after we broke up)? Has she recently reactivated it because I wasn't replying to her messages, and she still was doubtful about the whole issue but now thinks that I'm mad at her and there's no hope so she did it?

I know, none of that matters to me and it's not my bussiness, it's only gonna make me go crazy and obsess over it. But the whole mystery about what the hell has been going on these months and more specifically, what is going on in her head... man, that's some sanity lose inducing idea. I have to forget about it. I have a date tonight with a new girl, hopefully I won't obsess over this whole thing while enjoying that. Thanks for the support, again.

I'm still feeling like shit after seeing she reactivated her OKcupid account (I stumbles onto it, wasn't stalking her or anything=. So all this crazy thought process started in my head and I wanted to get some perspective on it.
....

So this is where the crazy ideas come in. On one hand: is it possible that she was still having ideas about getting back together or fixing things, but thought that I was acting distant and cold, maybe was seeing another person or something, was expecting me to make a move towards her, and as I didn't, finally decided to forget about me and reactivate her OKC and start looking for someone else? Is it a "pride" thing, where she doesn't want to come after me, and I'm messing everything up because I didn't ask her to meet at a different day? Is the "accidental" phone call, all the messages saying how cute I looked at the whatsapp profile picture and stuff like that, "signals" to get me to ask her to meet again?
.....

I'm sorry for sounding so stupid, but just want some perspective. I guess my rational side is right, but it's so fucking hard to pay him heed when you're experiencing strong feelings. If she's on OKC to look for someone to hook up, I don't understand why the first months we were dating she told me she wanted something serious. Why wouldn't she just hook up with me and move on? That was what I wanted at the time, and I wouldn't be fucking getting drunk alone if it had been that way. And if she's looking for a relationship, why did she tell me she loved me when we met to talk? Why not tell me she just didn't feel we had any future or she had any deep feelings for me?

But also because yesterday when I woke up I saw that she had sent me yet another text message, at 4 AM. This being a cryptic one: "Hahaha you're so funny". I was so tempted to reply and say "What?". I didn't, though.
I didn't know if it was just a mind game
, and she wanted me to reply just so she could write back: "Oh sorry that was meant for another guy" to make me feel bad. I also considered the fact that it was just another "signal" that she was there and wanted me to contact her, but was too proud to do it herself. But I thought that if that was the case, it wasn't worth it: if she felt something for me, it would be up to her to be assertive and not send a cryptic text message so I would tell her something, like if we were teenagers, but phone me and ask me to meet to talk. If she didn't, then it wasn't worth the effort of me replying to her message in hopes of re-initiating contact with her. Also, I got the feeling that she would reply in a small talk way, happy to have checked that I was "still there" and that she could do whatever she wants and keep texting me once in a while, in case she changes her mind.

What is really weird is that the message before that was a "Are we not speaking to each other?" to which I didn't reply. If someone doesn't reply to that and you want to find out what's going on, I guess you call them. What you don't do is send another weird text message.


Still the month of May and now he's out with yet another woman-

Quote from: leftpas
Last friday I went with my date to a club. While we were dancing, I got this phone call. I picked it up and it was some voice in English telling me that she was in my neighbourhood. I honestly didn't recognize her voice (she was drunk) and I had deleted her contact details from my phone. So I asked her who she was. She thought I was asking where she was and repeated she was at my neighbourhood, so I asked again "Yeah, but WHO are you?". That really set her off, and she started saying how could I have forgotten about her, if I was kidding her, etc. I told her to chill, and went out of the club to talk.

She started saying how I had been "ignoring her and her messages" and that that really hurt her. Also, that she had been seeing what I had been doing on facebook and that I was doing that on purpose to hurt her, that I had "clearly moved on", "met someone" blabla (the girl I'm seeing right now has been quite active at sharing links on my facebook wall and stuff like that, but it's not like I've been posting pictures of me kissing anyone or any weird passive-agressive shit like that, mind you). I told her I didn't think phoning me drunk (she cut me: "I'm sober!") at 4 AM on friday was the right way to talk about this sort of stuff, and that I wasn't ignoring her. I was only adhering to what I asked her to do: not contact me.

I told her that she had agred to do that, broke it to talk with me about having been thinking about us, asked me to meet up again, and then on that day called it off (well you know my story), so she wasn't right in saying I was ignoring her. I told her if she wanted to talk, she should make a regular phone call (not a drunken one at 4 AM) and ask me to meet in person to talk face to face, which is the way you talk about stuff you feel is important, and that I didn't have anything else to say because I couldn't even understand half the things she was saying (she wasn't hammered, but she was drunk, English is not my native language, bad signal, street noise, and couldn't even see her face so it was more difficult to understand). She said that ok, she would call me and then said "I love you", before I hung up (I'm not sure if I kind of babbled something along the lines of "Yes me too", I was drunk and it caught me off guard, maybe I made that mistake).

I'm feeling surprisingly good after that incident. I went back inside the club to keep dancing with my date and had a wonderful time, and we both went back to my place after that. I have been thinking about the call and the other girl, and think that maybe that's a proof of her not being entirely well in her head (very immature behaviour if you ask me). I'm glad to know that my perception of my self-esteem being shattered by her treating me like shit was wrong. At the same time, it feels so depressing to know that someone you've loved (even if it was for a short span of time) turned out to be a way you didn't know, and could ruin things like that. I sincerely think we fit so well, we had so many things in common and we both were so affectionate to each other because there was something very strong going on between both of us. So it's sad to think that she acted like that. It's a different sadness from what I was feeling before, though. This is more of "damn, it would have been so good, why is she so dumb?", not a "I am feeling so fucking miserable right now". Which is progres, I guess!

 :pathetic:


Quote from: leftpas
I'm not an idiot, even though I admit that I might be probably been acting as one for the past two months. I can't explain why this break up has hurted me so much, but it felt really painful, first with the shitty way to end things and then with the post-break up hopes of getting back together, and then sporadic contact from her. I know you don't want to insult me and trust me, I know that in some time I'll probably re-read this and think myself that I'm acting like an idiot. But seriously, it's fucking dragging on for too long.
.....

 I got out of a 4 years relationship almost two years ago. In that time I met and dated several girls. Attractive, funny and smart girls, to whom I didn't feel connected, though. And then this girl came and I felt like being in a relationship again: enjoying hanging out together, laying in bed talking, watching a movie, listening about her life and her family or friends, etc. It got to the point that (apologies for sounding fruity) making her happy made me feel happy, seeing her smile was the only reward I needed. But then, it ended with her acting in a shitty way. And it makes me feel... fuck, it's so hard to find all those qualities again. Any success stories from people who were in that situation?

 :pathetic:

Keep in mind all that drama took place way back in 2013 between March and May.

FOUR YEARS LATER SEPT 2017

Quote from: leftpas
Hi everyone. I wanted to pick your mind about something that happened last night.

I broke with my girlfriend of three years last year around this time in September. It had been a pretty intense relationship, and although I loved her a lot, several problems (like the recurrent and crazy fights, lack of commitment on her part etc. you can look at my post history and read the thread if you're interested) eventually led to me breaking up. It was very painful and we even went through the "we're on a break" stage etc. I eventually told her I wanted to end for good (after reading some of the advice from you guys here and thinking it over for days) and as we lived in different cities I had to do it by phone. Cue horrible conversations on phone, her yelling that I owed her to go and tell her to her face (it was a 4 hour train trip), then her making promises on how she would change things... I felt sad and ridden by guilt. And that feeling only increased when, after telling her to please stop talking to each other for a while, she kept texting me that she missed me etc. The 1st of January she texted me how much she missed me and that we needed to talk and started phoning me (like 5 or 6 different calls) but I didn't pick it up, I just replied that we needed to let some more time pass.

OK, so months have passed. I met this amazing girl, fell in love with her. Huge world of difference this time. We have some fights or other problems, but nothing close to what happened with the ex, and in general everything is running smoothly. But I still feel bad about my ex. It's weird, but when I think of her I get such strong feelings that bring me down. Of course I sometimes might remember nice things that I used to love and miss them, but mostly the feeling is more of guilt, of me feeling bad about her life, pitying her.

And then last night I was partying with my girlfriend and her friends and suddenly I got a text from my ex. She was like "hey leftpas, how are you?". I didn't reply but it kind of messed up my night. Feeling bad about not replying to her previous 10 texts or so (Iwhich I hadn't even read when I got them months ago, only the first words that pop up when you get the notification, most of them "I miss you..." ), I replied this morning with "Hey I'm fine. I hope you're good too ". Some time later she replied "That's lovely, well I won't bother you anymore [insert happy emoji here]".

So two questions... 1) Is my text wrong? I didn't want to imply that she was bothering me. But I didn't want to ask how she was or anything because I didn't want to engage. It still brings me down to think about the whole thing. Should I tell her that she wasn't bothering me and that I just didn't feel like talking? That makes me afraid she might confuse that for "feeling something" and trying to get in touch again or something. And 2) Am I crazy not to be over the whole thing already? I love my girlfriend and hiding this text made me feel bad, like I was lying to her or something. It's just that the whole relationship was so intense and I was so torn about whether to end it that I don't want to revisit it. Is that normal?

It's weird, but when I think of her I get such strong feelings that bring me down. Of course I sometimes might remember nice things that I used to love and miss them, but mostly the feeling is more of guilt, of me feeling bad about her life, pitying her.

And then last night I was partying with my girlfriend and her friends and suddenly I got a text from my ex. She was like "hey leftpas, how are you?". I didn't reply but it kind of messed up my night. Feeling bad about not replying to her previous 10 texts or so (Iwhich I hadn't even read when I got them months ago, only the first words that pop up when you get the notification, most of them "I miss you..." ), I replied this morning with "Hey I'm fine. I hope you're good too ". Some time later she replied "That's lovely, well I won't bother you anymore [insert happy emoji here]".

So two questions... 1) Is my text wrong? I didn't want to imply that she was bothering me. But I didn't want to ask how she was or anything because I didn't want to engage. It still brings me down to think about the whole thing. Should I tell her that she wasn't bothering me and that I just didn't feel like talking? That makes me afraid she might confuse that for "feeling something" and trying to get in touch again or something. And 2) Am I crazy not to be over the whole thing already? I love my girlfriend and hiding this text made me feel bad, like I was lying to her or something. It's just that the whole relationship was so intense and I was so torn about whether to end it that I don't want to revisit it. Is that normal?

It should be emphasized that this nigger is now 33 years old and he's writing like he's 15 years old getting over his first summer crush.  Goddamn.

Goons posting these stories gives me second-hand embarrassment. Back in my day  :clint: :johnwayne: when I went through a bad break up, I had real life friends I could talk to, get drunk with and move on. Goons have no friends or any shame for that matter. Good for us, bad for them.

Different kind of breakup: Looks like I'm losing a best friend over some stupid bullshit again. My roommate leaves windows open and AC on and doesn't clean up common areas well (and we've talked about this many times before), and on Saturday night he left our front door wide open... I love the guy, we've been there for each other through some real tough times, but lately I'm starting to feel that the little things like that are just indicative of a lack of mutual respect and it came to a head with the open front door. I sent him a letter with an ultimatum and he furiously turned it back on me with a barrage of angry texts calling me disrespectful, untrustworthy, not a real friend, a snake... I had a bit of an anxiety attack and had to leave work. And now I'm wondering if he's not entirely wrong, maybe I am the bad guy in this situation. No doubt all our mutual friendships are going to implode as well, I don't have the energy to defend myself to that many people.

This isn't nearly as bad as what went down last winter, but if I'm going to lose good friends in a spectacular shitshow every year, maybe I don't want to play anymore.

Goon lives with a slob, writes passive aggressive letter to slob then gets a case of the vapors when slob gets angry and has to leave work.  :lolno: How do these people manage to function day-to-day??

Benzos are bad news,propranolol takes away the physical side effects of anxiety without turning you into a retard that can't remember all the uninhibited and possibly violent shit you did.

Like the shit that's going on is a legit problem but telling that asshole he can start paying a bigger share of the electric bill if he wants to be stupid and as for the front door being wide open in the middle of the night that just has to stop. Starts just as much shit as the faggy letter.

Quote from:  deadly_pudding
It's your deadly_pudding drama update.

Tonight I'm going to tell my woman-child ex girlfriend that she needs to clean up after herself in the shared spaces of the apartment. I busted my ass to clean up that whole zone, and now there are features such as:

Her clean(???) laundry basket that's been sitting by the couch for 2 weeks

Her socks just kind of strewn wherever

Like weeks worth of paper trash (mostly) that I haven't thrown away myself because it's all her mail and I don't feel like leafing through it all to see what's important. The padded envelope that her textbook came in a month ago is still sitting on the floor where she left it

Just a bunch of clothes and random objects covering one of the couches completely, because she puts something down on a nearby convenient surface, and it lives there now. See also the time I had to move two of her purses off of the kitchen table so I would have room to prep something.

Also she tends to cook a meal sometime between when I leave the house and when she leaves the house, which I then have to clean up after if I want to cook a meal later. She also occasionally emerges from her room with like a few days worth of dishes and just puts them wherever. Occasionally she *does* do dishes, and proceeds to really lord it over me like it's a big achievement, but she needs to do it like, constantly instead. Doing 2 peoples' worth of dishes that comes in occasional waves of like 3 days worth of one person's dishes fucking sucks. It's demoralizing coming home to a pile of dishes in the sink that was empty when I left.

Anyway, she'll get really defensive about the whole topic, so that will be fun. Slob and narcissist is a real doozy of a character trait combo, and I can't really think of a way to say "You need to pick up your garbage that you leave all over the floor in the room where I have to sleep" that's not fundamentally a personal attack on somebody's character.

 :allears:
Quote from:  deadly_pudding
Clean up talk went worse than I could have possibly imagined

She dropped a class today because the professor apparently somehow robbed her of 25 minutes during an exam by being a doddering old man? Anyway, I had to roll up to her while she was already crying in the kitchen and say "I know you're upset, but I have to talk to you about some household issues."

So I'm pretty sure she didn't listen at all, and I'll have to bug her again about her clutter later. Or just escalate and stuff all her miscellaneous garbage into that abandoned load of laundry and shove it up against her door.

edit: this is also one of the ways I concluded that she's some kind of pathological narcissist. There's always some kind of massive disaster with her every time she's around other people, where *somebody else* was so horrible that she can't possibly ever work with them again. This includes every job she's ever had, at least one classmate or professor per semester, and my former roommate and now ex best-friend (), because I was dumb enough to choose my horrible girlfriend's side.

There's a saying that goes, "If everybody you know is an asshole, then you are probably actually the asshole."

There's also a saying that goes "deadly_pudding, you are a spineless pussy"

Somfin posted:

    Get yer friend back if that bridge hasn't burnt all the way through.



It's thoroughly burnt, I let my ex treat her like complete dogshit, and she called it in advance. We did *not* part on good terms. I recall her mom threatened to sue me while she was moving out , because that was also the beginning of my ex using me as her "enforcer". She never takes care of her problems herself. I always had to be the one to talk to the landlord, even for like the dumbest shit like "the maintenance guy double parked behind our car". The landlord called me out on it shortly before the breakup like, "Did she ask him to move? You need to stop enabling her." I'm the one who got in trouble on the occasions where she finally said something shitty enough to get our extremely stoic friend mad enough to retort, for not defending her. She has no sense of responsibility, basically, and relies on trusting patsies like me to take responsibility for her. She's pond scum.

So anyway, I was the one who had to pressure my friend to stick to her timeline of moving out, and I was the one who had to pressure her to hand over her key when she was done moving all her stuff out of the apartment, because I was presented with the ultimatum of "being against" my girlfriend when I tried to get them to just fucking talk to each other. I was also the one who didn't say anything when my ex peed on her couch out of spite. It was all thoroughly shameful, and if I could go back in time and kick my own ass I definitely would. I was so caught up in what I thought was my responsbility to try and be a good boyfriend, that I normalized a lot of completely fucked up things.

edit for clarity:
Like she would call me at work and tell me to call the landlord, instead of just talking to another human.


Quote from:  deadly_pudding
I'm 31, and I would definitely feel weird about dating anybody younger than like 25. It would take some kind of *herculean* bedroom effort to get me over the psychological hurdle of going out with somebody who isn't old enough to drink yet (21 in the US, in case I need to clarify), because that's like a baby.

Uh, "luckily" I'm a fat beardo who goes to bed at 9:00 sometimes even on weekends, which means no sane human younger than 30 is interested in me
People the same age as me understand about having a bedtime

Update on ChickenofTomorow. The person who had a friend touch her during some communist meeting or whatever. She keeps going back to edit her posts-

Quote from: ChickenofTomorow
the other day the mediator contacted me to offer resources and talk about alternatives to mediation for that thing that my former friend did - which was one part of a series of things that WE did, the rest of which were consensual (not that this makes the thing any less non-consensual).

there are lots of options and I am considering almost all of them, except for pretending he did nothing wrong. but I'm pushing the decision off a little bit until the sever has worked more of its magic and I've processed more.

I won't use this as an excuse to see him so those grooves in my brain can get a hit of dopamine. at least I'm sort of mostly past the "having all my emotions in public" stage and can reach out to friends and resources more privately.

lol

The guy was a phantom pisser. Heíd get shitty and piss in weird places in the middle of the night. The trash can, the counter tops, once he pissed on a guy who was peacefully sleeping in his bed.

I meant actually go to a doctor and get a legitimate prescription for something. You know goons aren't going to actually work on self improvement, so the least they can do is take some chill pills to stop *literally shaking* and make it through the workday.

That's not self medicating. Self medicating is when I make my own homemade adderall. If goons can't man up, getting a scrip for their rampant anxiety issues would help more than hurt.

YALL IT'S A BREAKUP THREAD MIRACLE

My landlord gave me an out. I can move into another unit in a different neighborhood on Sunday, and just start paying rent there instead. She said she wants to keep me as a tenant, and will recommend to the court that I not be held liable for the old place's rent when she processes my ex. But, since I'm functionally moving for free, my budget can actually survive that eventuality if the court does decide I'm liable.

I should maybe sleep somewhere else tonight, because the ex is having a full-scale meltdown, according to my landlord who just spoke to her.


Then he drops this bomb in the thread  :stonk: :stare:

Quote from: deadly_pudding
My childhood home burned down in a murder/arson, and I've spent my adult life living like some kind of incredibly shitty, tech-obsessed monk. Most of the furniture is my ex's, most of the electronics are mine. I have a bed, a desk, a chair, 2 sets of those stackable plastic storage drawers, and a coffee table that I got for free when it clearly wasn't going to fit in some rando's car while he packed to move out of his college dorm, and the rest is all electronics, board games, and some kinda shitty housewares that I'm fully okay with abandoning and replacing with much more aesthetic ones.


e: oh yeah, but I will get my birth certificate and vehicle title out of there instantly.
ee: and checkbook



He claims his life story was one that aired on Homicide Hunter.  He has no proof other than mentioning details that were shown on the episode. He claims his dad murdering his mom then abandoning him at the age of 9 didn't mess him up too badly.

Quote from: deadly_pudding back in May of 2015
So, I googled myself today. First, some backstory:
When I was like 9, my dad, who has the same name as me, shot my mom and torched the house I didn't know that up front, though. He put me in the van with some loud music and a delicious orange soda and the dog while he did the deed. Then, while he drove me (and the dog) to a police station the next city over, he coached me with a backstory about how assassins from the government were after his life. Mom would be safe at home with her can of mace

I was a dumb little kid and had seen at least one episode of x-files, so I believed him.

Anyway, so I googled myself today and learned that there's an episode of Investigative Discovery's Homicide Hunters about that case. So, tonight my girlfriend and I are gonna order pizza and watch said episode, and see if I won the child reenactment actor lottery. Also probably I will learn various grisly details that were kept secret from me by my family, as I was never called to testify.


The episode can be viewed for a nominal fee on youtube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_usip3I2GNU

So feel free to check it out and learn way too much about my past!
 


The thread was locked after 2 pages with no proof that was really him.  The Spy Who Killed Me is the name of the episode.

The mediation/transformative justice place is offering me "conflict coaching" before moving on in the transformative justice process. I don't know what this means. Are they expecting conflict? Has something happened? Has he said something that would make them expect it? I'm so confused.

I'm maintaining the sever and the urge to torture myself by snooping on him is so low that I can't even imagine myself opening a browser window and going to twitter.

my current interpersonal communication skills consist of yelling "sure, but the thing is, i DESERVE to be in this well" so this will be a learning experience

Two weeks out from being btfo of a four year relationship I'm still breaking every rule in the op. The rules in the op are probably smart because this is incredibly dumb and painful. This thread has still been great help though.

One day later

Quote from: ass cobra
This breakup is fucking with my head. I'm normally a pretty boring and rational guy but I was drunk from the moment I got up at 6 am yesterday and spent a considerable amount of time trying to get some cocaine even though I've only ever done it like two times and didn't enjoy it. Luckily I didn't score and didnt contact her, the anxiety had been bad enough today. I'm hitting the gym tomorrow, promise.


Quote from: ass cobra
50% circular endless stupid thoughts about what happened and what could have been
10% checking her instagram activity
10% interpreting her instagram activity
5% updating snapchat
5% making """funny""" snapchat stories for her to notice
15% feeling angry she didn't say anything about your funny Snapchat story
5% rational thoughts

We'll meet to sign over the mortgage next week, and I'll finally enact the sever then, but I feel like the ratio of rational thought will stay the same and I'll just social media stalk her somehow anyway
   

Quote from: ass cobra
Signed the last mortgage papers, talked some things through and had goodbye sex this week, and now I've finally done the social media block.

I'm still hopelessly in love with her and can't see that ending anytime soon, but she lives in another country
so I won't run into her all the time, and now I can't check her social media every five minutes. Right now at this very moment I'm feeling kind of good, all things considered.

Maybe it will even last all the way until I find out that she's moved on and found somebody else.

Maggie Fletcher update, you might have missed this because it's in the online dating thread instead of the breakup one

She's dating a girl now, btw did I mention she likes SKYDIVING?

Quote
I had the best date on Friday night! I went over to my new friend's house for dinner, we talked for hours, I spent the night. I really wanted to go to breakfast with her in the morning, but my team was expecting me to show up for some skydives so I had to leave. (Ended up being the best decision, since today was too windy to jump.) But we've been texting a lot and making a ton of plans. She's going to join me for a female-friendly skydiving event (it's geared toward women jumpers, but she's interested in skydiving so I thought it'd be nice to bring her along so she can meet some of the people I jump with at a woman-focused event, even though she doesn't jump). I'm seeing her during the week too.

I'm starting to see where the "UHaul on the fifth date" joke is coming from. I just met her, and I'm walking around with the dopiest smile on my face thinking about her all the time. I really hope this works out. She's just so easy to be around, I feel like I've known her much longer than I have. Things just feel right, and it's nice to be honest about my sexuality--I've been closeted for a long time due to my own inhibitions but mostly because straight men make terrible jokes and propositions to bi women and I just didn't want to hear it. This feels so natural and honest, and she's just a cool woman to be around. Even if I weren't dating her I'd still want to be her friend. It helps that she's super attractive and nice and fun and kind and we have a lot in common.

AKA the most transparent "rebound date to make ex jealous" of all time. The new "gf" never sky...dove (skydived?) so what does she do? Well obviously takes her right to the fucking skydiving place her sky-instructor-ex works at!

"Hey my ex goes to this particular place all the time and I am totally still stuck on him even though I pretend I'm super over it and totally prime dating material hence why they called me a town bicycle, so now I'm going to find another guy, no wait... a GIRL this time instead to show how kinky and fun I am and show him how much he is missing out!"

Goon plays house with his fiancť who sometimes doesn't come home for days at a time. To his surprise, she's cheating on him.



Quote from: foonykins
So the woman (whom I thought was the love of my life, and is currently my fiancť) decided last week to not come home Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. When she comes home Friday she sees me for about 2-3 hours then passes out until Saturday morning where she says shes going to mock trial practice (third year law student) and will be home. She texts me later that day that she's going out again and may or may not be home. Comes home on Sunday afternoon and when I try to talk to her about her behavior she says that she's been unhappy for quite some time and found someone at school that makes her feel "appreciated".

Just to add some context, I've been paying all her bills, working 50 hours a week to keep us afloat while she's in school. Due to the work demands (not to mention the fact she put on 40 pounds during school) our sex life kind of took a backseat. This whole talk was basically about how unsatisfied she is sexually and how she acknowledges the rest of the things I do for her yet its apparently not enough. After a long talk last night, we decide to try to push through it and acknowledge that we need to work on things as a couple.

Flash forward to 20 minutes ago and she tells me that she's going to the bar with her friends after school and she doesn't know if she will be home tonight. They're apparently "honoring Tom Petty".

We've been living together for three and a half years. She took care of me while I was in a rough patch and to reciprocate I've been caring for her while she's in school. We merged everything but finances and we have a dog together which she bought.

I'm basically thinking its time to sever but theres a pretty large place in my mind that still loves her and as stupid as it sounds, I fucking love this god damn dog and I really don't to lose him.

Help me goons.


Goon now knows what a tampon feels like- Get used by a cunt then be thrown away once you are no longer useful.

Quote from: foonykins
Well goons, I went ahead and told her not to come home last night. I went to my friend's place, had a few beers and crafted what I believed was the perfect short sentence to tell her that its over and to gtfo of my life. Ended up saying "I dont think you should come home tonight. I thought we could make this work but I realize now that it wont".

All she said was "okay".

You were all right, she didn't give a fuck about me anymore and was just using me to keep a roof over her head close to her school. She can go dive in to this new guys life face first, I bet he's going to love that.

As for now, the house is my grandmother's old house, so I don't need to worry about being the one to pack their things. Considering she's basically homeless, I'm pretty sure ill be keeping the dog at least for some time. I sent her a text this morning to tell her to contact me when shes ready to talk logistics, and that I'll be changing the locks later today.

Now to figure out how the fuck to be alone again.


Trying to put up a  :johnwayne: front but ends up like  :parsons: because he is her best friend. Lol  "ex-mother in law"  :dubya:

Quote from: foonykins
So I just got off the phone with her and she's coming to get her clothes tonight. She's going to need to find a place before she can pick up any of the large items. I told her while she's still in flux she can store whatever she needs at the house. We're gonna try to keep it cordial, I honestly don't have any ill will toward her and vice versa. It just didn't work out between us and that's okay.

It still really sucks though. Her family took me in as one of their own (my family is crazy dysfunctional and it was he first time I ever experienced anything like a real family unit). My ex mother in law is going to be floored.

We're going to stay in touch if at all possible. She told me on the phone that I'm still her best friend and that was the biggest part of the problem. We were very close friends, not lovers. The romance just kind of died and we turned into roommates that share a bed. After some reflection I can agree with her. I think I was trying really goddamn hard to keep something going that just wasn't going to work out.

I'm probably going to quite a bit in this thread for awhile. Most of my friends haven't been in a relationship like this so it's kind of hard to connect with them on this level. One of the good things about this whole situation is I'll be able to reach out to a few people I haven't seen in a long time. I'm grabbing drinks with this girl that I used to work with on Thursday. I'm getting my old band back together tomorrow. I'm going to do the best I can to not sit alone and sulk because that's when the bad thoughts rush in.

All in all it feels good to not have to worry about someone else though.


 :facepalm: Getting used for sex and dinner. Now he's got the sads because his mighty penis couldn't change her mind.

Quote from: foonykins
I can't fucking stop crying for even 10 seconds to get up and grab another tissue.

I made the idiotic mistake of seeing her last night. She met me at the house so she can grab some more stuff and load up her car. I see her and immediately run and kiss her. We have sex. It's the best sex we've had in months. I'm beginning to think that this might've all just been a fluke and we can stay together and be happy. I took her out to dinner at a nice place because my dumb brain thought I could win her back for some reason. We get to talking and it's like she has no emotion towards me anymore. She talks about how she "doesn't know what she wants" and how "we both make her feel good in different ways" and all that bullshit. Every passing minute makes me feel angrier and angrier while I sit across this fucking table from her. She looks beautiful, and it rips my insides apart knowing that someone else gets to have her. The drive home was horrific in ways that I'm honestly too embarrassed to put out there.

So I wake up this morning and the first thought in my head is "how do I make her life absolutely miserable?".

I grab my phone and tell her that I'm going to need to completely cut her out for now, and by now I mean a long time. She says some shit about visiting the dog and I just tell her that we can work that out later, but for now I need to process this whirlwind of feelings I'm having and her being in contact makes it impossible. I tell her that I love her yet I despise her at the same time and the only thing I can think of doing with her is hatefucking her and my thought pattern right now is really not healthy. She says she understands and that I know how to reach her. I remind her to leave her key tomorrow after she grabs the last of her things. I'll be in New York seeing something on broadway so I won't need to see her again.

Now I'm laying in this bed that we've shared for 4 years (which apparently I'm keeping for now because the place she's moving to is very tiny) and I have a goofy ass dog staring at me wanting to play but I just can't stop crying long enough to even look at him. It's already taken me an hour to write this post.

All of my friends are working right now. I won't be able to sleep for at least 12 more hours. I wish I could sleep because it's the only time that I don't feel completely alone right now. I have no idea what to do or how to begin. I really need some help with this.

You won't have to wait much longer for her game! She is still sad the guy who was emotionally cold towards her. "Dude", as she calls him, still makes her all  :parsons:

Quote from: Xibanya
Closed dev on the game Iím shipping November 17th. Itís the completely remade and expanded 2.0.0 version of a game of mine that has existed in some form or another for 2.5 years; in fact I met Dude because of it. Finally shipping it will be an enormous relief and will allow me to move on from a lot of things that currently weigh heavily on my mind. Iíve been posting about it all over social media and not a like or anything from Dude. Donít know what I was expecting.

E: lying awake in bed all night being sad about him. Again.

Sure Jan

Quote from: Xibanya
Welp a male friend has asked if Iíd like to date him exclusively. I told him I have to think about it but I should give him an answer ASAP, and that answer should be no because holy Jesus I canít date some other guy while Iím still crying over Dude. But I mean, I might want to date this guy someday but itís cruel to say ďmaybeĒ but Iíd be lying if I said ďnever.Ē

Comedy option: start dating this guy immediately

No but seriously that would be the worst possible thing to do right now. Oh yeah, and Dude still hasnít come by to pick his stuff up, shocker.



Gross

Quote from: Xibanya
Thatís whatís funny is I feel like I donít even want to date this other guy very badly. I def had a little crush on him when we first started seeing each other a lot but right now having a boyfriend (or girlfriend!) seems like a fucking drag. And my sex drive has been absolutely dead since Dude moved out, so fwb doesnít seem very fun either. (And I mean dead, itís the longest stretch Iíve ever gone without even masturbating, if youíll pardon the tmi!) This breakup has turned me into some kind of sexless goody two shoes

Hanging out with this guy has been fun, and I enjoyed the closeness, the company, and the attention. Actually going out means Iíll have obligations. So maybe what Iím sad about giving up is not dating this guy, Iím sad about giving up being treated like Iím someone special without having to put out, provide emotional support, and meet up IRL x times per week as payment. But I suppose I always knew the ďbeing treated like Iím interestingĒ gravy train would have to end at some point.


Totally hot game girl developer is a psycho, news at 11!  :depressedlesbian: :tuss:

Quote from: Xibanya
I internet stalk all lovers and potential lovers, which is hypocritical because I wouldnít want them to do that to me. But I wouldnít ever do anything like get access to something thatís locked or password protected.

I did do that once when I was 19 and thatís probably the creepiest thing Iíve done in my life. I had a crush on my male roommate and when he was out of town I used a Linux distro on a CD to gain access to his desktopís files; I used that to read his yahoo chat logs. Thatís a disgusting breach of privacy and Iíve never done anything like it since.


I did found out some stuff from Dudeís past that he didnít share with me until months after I found it; it was relatively innocent (he used to cosplay under an assumed name) but I still acted like I didnít know when he opened up about it. And how did I find this morsel of knowledge? I was able to find the internet handle he used for cosplay by googling a phrase he liked to use a lot with the word ďforum.Ē So uh, if you want to have a secret identity, donít use the same very specific phrase all the time.
 


Foonykins comes in and drops a bomb casually into the thread then back peddles furiously when he gets called out-

Quote from: Foonykins
So I get a call from my ex at 4:30am hysterically crying saying that she came home from the bar to find the new guy raping an unconscious girl in her bathroom. Turns out heís a sociopath and she kept saying how she made a horrible mistake and how sorry she is she hurt me. I was able to talk her down (I was inches away from getting police to do a welfare check) and told her she really should get some therapy to process the shitshow of a month weíve had and she said she was going to. She was hinting at getting back together but I left it at ďyou need to fix yourself and love yourself first before we can even begin to ponder that question. I need to do the sameĒ and she said that was a good idea. I have no intentions of ever being with her in that way again.

The funny part? I just went back to bed like it was no big deal. No downward spiral of thoughts. No missing her next to me in bed. None of that. Just a little bit of feeling sorry for her and her self-sabotage.

Iím casually dating 3 women right now and weíre having fun and taking things easy. I told them upfront that Iím probably going to have to move in 9 months for career stuff and none of them are doing anything super clingy which is a first in my life. I used to love the cling, thinking that it was ďtrue loveĒ or something. Now itís just a red flag.

For any goons out there fresh out of their relationship, it does get better with time. Therapy works wonders too. Iím still working on my own identity crisis thing I had once things ended between my ex and I but I picked up a guitar for the first time in years last night. It was like riding a bike and it made me feel immensely satisfied.

This thread is the fucking best and should be stickied.


This thread is the fucking best  :colbert:


Quote from: TheCenturion
Two things. One, good for you on not getting sucked back in and having the self-possession to have an attitude of something like "I regret that you're having a bad time, but I'm not going to do anything about it, because it's not my problem, not my concern, and you're an adult.'

Two: I hope that SOMEbody called the police to report the rape in progress?
 

A woman is getting raped while I am on the phone with the person witnessing it? Pssht, not MY problem!

Quote from: Foonykins
Nope. She actually started victim blaming and told her sheís being a hypocrite considering she had her own sexual assault issues and sociopath man is manipulating her even more but she shrugged it off.

Whatever, she can fix that mess. Iím not touching it with a 100 foot pole.
 


One of our favorite relationship experts weighs in on the situation

Quote from: Anne Whateley
So you heard about a rape in progress and your reaction is "whatever, not my problem"? It's fine to hate your ex I guess, but idk maybe spare a thought for the unconscious girl a rapist dragged home.
 

 :backpedal: :backpedal: :backpedal: :backpedal:

Quote from: Foonykins
This was hours after the fact when she called me, it wasnít ďin progressĒ. I have no idea who the victim was, never met the rapist, and the only connection I had to it was my ex who was a witness.

Plus imo Iím not putting myself into an absolute fucking strangers business. How would you feel if the cops showed up to your house because a random person YOU NEVER MET put a call in saying you were a victim? You would really like that?

What my ex decides to report is her business. She was the one who saw what went down. Not only would any testimony I may give be mostly meaningless, but I could potentially be causing the victim unneeded emotional distress by getting involved.

Jesus Christ get the fuck over yourself.
   


Quote from: Anne Whateley
Yes, I would very much like it if, if I were raped, the rapist was caught.

Everyone who goes "hey man, not my business if he's raping an unconscious girl, after all it's not like I know her" -- whether it's the bartender, the cabdriver, the neighbors, the bros he brags to, the people at the next table in McDonalds who overhear the bragging -- is helping the rapist.
 


Social Justice Boner would be a good username

Quote from: Foonykins
Iím not reporting anything without the consent of the victim. Full stop. I donít know who the victim is, I donít even know her name. And Iím not about to get all fucking sleuthy to try to find anything else out, because I donít stick my nose into strangerís business.

If my ex wants to say something then fine. She witnessed it happen. If somehow the victim reaches out to me and tells me to, Iíd be glad to set up a time and tell the police the minuscule amount of information I have.

Iím not a detective, and Iím not going to start playing one to get some social justice boner.
 


Quote from: TheCenturion
The impression I'd gotten from the original post was that the ex was calling foonykins from, say, the kitchen, while a rape was ongoing in the bathroom. If that was the case, the correct course of action for foonykins would be to terminate that call, and call 911, period, full stop. Hell, the correct course of action for the ex should have been to run away while dialing 911, but condition black and all that.

He's clarified that the ex called at 4:30 AM and described the rape as having happened hours earlier; at that point, I'm not sure that calling the popo would accomplish anything; what do you have to tell them? "Hi, officer. Listen, my ex told me that several hours ago a man I don't know was raping a woman I don't know. I can't identify either of them, I don't know if this crime actually took place or not, I only have her description of it.'

Hell, I even take his point about not wanting to take the victim's agency away; like it or not, she may or may not want to go through the process of pressing charges.

What a messy goddamn situation, and having three daughters, this sort of thing makes me alternate between nausea and rage. But, no, I don't see what he can do after the fact based on hearsay reports about people he has no way of identifying or contacting.
 


Anne Whateley- Social Justice Detective

Quote from: Anne Whateley
Respecting the victim's wishes is good if you know the victim or their wishes. If you don't know the victim, reasoning "not my problem" isn't good.

I thought it was in process because you didn't correct the first person who said it, plus based on the timing. So what actually happened was your ex got home at like midnight, watched it happen, then sat around for a couple hours, then at 4:30 burst into hysterics and called?
"Hi, detective. Listen, I don't know if there's anything to this, but Jane Smith called me last night really upset. She said she watched John Doe raping an unconscious woman. I don't know who the victim was, but Jane said they were in her apartment at address at time. Here's Jane's phone number." That's super actionable. You don't need to have met John or the victim socially. You don't need to play cop, just tell the cops.

Btw, there's a good chance your ex is an accessory after the fact.

Quote from: Foonykins
I really donít care anymore. God forbid I didnít get a minute by minute timeline after being abruptly woken up early in the morning.

What happens to my ex from a legal standpoint is, again, not my problem.

Move on. It happened, itís out of my hands, and it wasnít even in yours to begin with. Go troll /r/incel or something.

Quote from: Somfin
We have one fourth-hand report, of an event which we know nothing about, where one of the links in the chain has motive and opportunity to lie.

This ain't the victim and it ain't a witness, it's someone vaguely outlining to us what they remember of what an unreliable witness to an alleged event told them at 4:30 in the morning.


Quote from: Anne Weightley
Right, I totally agree he shouldn't do any detective work at all. It's not his job to figure out who's who or exactly what happened. Detective work is what we pay detectives for, they should do that.



Quote from: Bobbie Wickham
Personally, I think Foofykins should call the police, and just report that Ex called on This Date and told you that So-and-So sexually assaulted a woman at This Address. You can tell them that this is where you want your involvement to start and stop, and leave the detective work to the police. Then block her number forever. No more entanglement.

People like Foofy's ex sometimes NEED to find out the hard way that things like criminal assaults and suicide threats aren't going to be taken lightly. Getting the police involved will either get the alleged assault the attention it needs, or will teach Foofy's ex that he's not fucking around. (And I say this as someone who has called the police on a suicide threat, which got the guy the attention he needed AND showed him that his friends are done with his bullshit.)

Respecting the victim's wishes is good if you know the victim or their wishes. If you don't know the victim, reasoning "not my problem" isn't good.

lol i love how they completely infantalize and take agency away from grown adults. you can see it in how they refer to the girl as the "victim" as opposed to "the girl" or something.

instantly, without any doubt, she is the victim. there is a victim here. a crime has taken place.

reminds me of a time when an SJW pulled me aside and asked "are you being raped? do you need help? /we/ can get you out of here if he's dangerous" because my boyfriend walked up behind me and slapped my butt at a bar right before closing.

after explaining that i don't give a shit, that he's my boyfriend, and that i encourage such behavior, i saw her talking to some people and pointing at me. i started to listen and i overheard her discussing, "i've seen this before. she's too afraid to say anything." and implying i was some sex-trafficked slave victim.

like uh

no, you don't know what's going on in my head, or his, or these random people tangentially related to a goon. bringing it back to the goon story, there's a metric fuckload of girls out there who like to pop xanax or drink until they black out and fuck. i think it's pretty "normie" for the millenial generation. how the fuck does a forum goon hearing this four-hundredth-hand from another goon's ex girlfriend who is definitely within the realm of "would make up crazy shit for attention from ex boyfriend she's saying other crazy shit to in attempt to get him back" and "in the context of a conversation, and brought up in a manner where she's trying to get sympathy attention from him" determine "hmmm yes there certainly needs to be a police investigation over this, i know for sure this is not consensual and also surely happened, i know for a fact both these people i've never met or seen exist."

oh yeah, they don't believe people can consent while impaired
or believe one can consent before impairment and then be impaired while having sex
the idea that some people would enjoy sex while intoxicated is foreign to them
and they're all incels who managed to accidentally dip their dicks into crazy + crazy obese goonette catladies

I'm pretty sure the original crime was described as the guy bringing an unconscious woman home to plow in his bathroom. I think even in the degeneracy marathon that is your life that's worth a polite tip to the local constabulary.

Sure, foonykins or his ex may not be reliable narrators but it's not like we can determine that. So at face value maybe dudes shouldn't rail random blacked out people.

Degeneracy aside, you're forgetting the goon credo: "ME ME ME MEEEEEE. ME ME ME ME MEEEEEEEEEE? MEEEE MEEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!"  :madgoon: That's ultimately what every post in E/N translates to.

i'm too lazy to scroll up and read it again because they're third hand goon crazy ex -> goon -> forum post words that should be taken with heaps of salt anyways but i interpreted it as the guy's ex girlfriend walked in on the guy fucking some passed out looking girl in the bathroom.

you aren't given context of if the girl is someone random or someone the guy knows.

point is the ree call 911 stuff is hilarious given the minimal amount of information the goon has indicating a crime took place, his lack of information on the identity or location of either person involved, let alone the e/n goons sperging out on him for not calling the cops.

it's only really an argument of "should he virtue signal or not" though, fucking lol if someone thinks the cops would actually investigate that like law and order or something. hahahhahahaha "jane doe case" that's for when they can't identify your dental records not for when someone told you a possibly fictional maybe-rape story about people you don't know.

all i'm proposing is that without much information goons can't determine if a crime took place or not armchair investigator style, especially on a planet in a society where something like 57% of women poll as having rape or near-rape fantasies.

within totally reasonable realm of possibility: night out drinking with girl + rough sex + had too much to drink + goon's crazy ex walks in + already emotionally unstable girl rationalizes situation because she thought new guy was monogamous with her, in a way to garner sympathy from the guy she was trying to get attention from by fucking the other one anyways

Good thing it was never about reporting a rape and always about berating someone online to feel better about their own trash fire of a life. Itís always the same handful of shit posters (in two words) and once you start noticing the usernames you see them popping up all over the place, never contributing anything positive or worthwhile, always trying to be the moral police of shit they donít know anything about.

yeah, told yall

going back and reading, all he said is "ex said she saw the guy raping an unconcious girl in the bathroom" and later went on to specify he did not know a minute by minute timeline of events in the post he was banned for.

let's stop thinking about the rape thing for a second and separate it from the rest of the posting here: the hyperbeta relationship advice this goon was given.

when you boil it down, goons are berating the guy and banned him for not instantly calling up the ex-girlfriend and asking for specific details about a possible rape at the drop of an e/n goon's fedora.

lol hm yes get involved in a police investigation and possibly a trial involving your clingy ex girlfriend over shit that isn't your business, great relationship advice provided to this goon from his fellow failures.

banned goon did the right thing: if the girl actually witnessed something, she can call the cops. he didn't and it's not his business. the absolute most that is appropriate for him to do is to tell her she should probably call the cops. why do goons struggle so hard with severing from tinder 4/10s?

Anne Weightly is the goonette who posted a photo of herself absolutely dwarfing a vw beetle (this was her after pic in the famous low carb thread) and I'm pretty sure Bobbi Wickam is a tranny.


Oh and Anne is into bdsm, fancy that.

You realize this would accomplish nothing, right? If she wasn't willing to call the police, why would she let them in if they knocked on the door? He clarified that this alleged rape occurred hours before the call anyway. Here's how that goes down:

"Hello sir, we received an anonymous call that an unknown man raped an unknown woman at this location last night. Is that true?"
"Nope."
"Have a good day."

What all of those dunces are missing is that the "rape" wasn't happening, it was just a reason for the ex to call this guy.

But those faggots see "rape" and instantly go into "WE MUST BE THE FEW WHO FIGHT THE MANY!" and instantly want to get involved.
