Why? I've admitted that I doubt anything's going to happen.


Because it's always the same set up. You never truly expected that anything would happen with the other girls, did you? LEARN FROM IT.

EDIT: Sorry buddy, I'm cranky when I'm ill. Hug?


Fuck that.

Stay bitter. Drink alone. Shout at the internet. Accept fate. Write a guest chapter for "You're going to die alone".

Haha, hang on, I can't win there. If I expect something to happen and it doesn't, I fail. If I don't expect anything to happen and it doesn't, I still fail?
God damn, life's a bitch.

Yeah, speaking of that book, I'm totally doing the chapter on solitary alcoholism.

As for the paradoxical self-relationship thing, that'd be weird. We'd just play Sonic & Knuckles, listen to the Wildhearts and have "hanky panky". Actually, that sounds pretty good. God, I'm awesome.

But you want it to, though. Which is the problem.

Can you blame me for wanting it to work for once? I've had over a year of nothing happening and I'm pretty tired of it.

Dude Applecore.

Stop trying to get with the girl. Why not just go out as mates and enjoy yourself instead of constantly trying to find a way of getting a girlfriend? Fine, you may not like her as a friend but just pretend to and you might actually enjoy yourself instead of being worried about her not liking you or whatever. To be honest, I don't really know what the hell's going on anyway.

I must say that after 16 years of being married I am really enjoying being single.



Well except for the no sex bit
Mary had a little lamb its fleece was coloured red
The reason for the colouring was the axe stuck in its head

It's not that I'm trying to find a way of getting a girlfriend, it's more that the girls I like rarely like me back. It's easy enough to say "stop looking and enjoy being single" (admittedly you've not said that, but others have), but doing it is another story.
I'm a natural overthinker, I can't help it. If I could turn it off, I'd do it in a heartbeat, but I'm just not confident enough to not care what others think of me.

Just pretend to be and eventually it'll just happen. I mean like, I used to be a moody twat and i'd be a dick to people for no reason just because I wasn't happy at all. Then I was just like fuck it, i'm going to be happy and i've always felt better. It's the same thing really. Just tell yourself that you don't care and you'll stop caring eventually.*

* May not work, worked for me though.

You're a lucky one then. If I could convince myself I didn't care, I would. But I'm a bad liar at the best of times, so lying to myself just isn't going to work :lol:

Men need to be less rubbish.


And less rubbish men need to live in my proximity. More fit ones that have nice hairs and aren't kaaaants.

It'd be rather interesting to see myself through the eyes of another, though. And to talk to myself. And maybe grope my bum.

Maybe I'd end up arguing with myself though, because I'm a bit too headstrong and proud for my own good. >_<


Surely you can grope your own arse, or do you have weird joints? :lol:

Why don't you take one of your female friends out? Not as a girlfriend or anything perverted like that, just something that you both regularly do and see how it goes. Just build that confidence before you go looking for it all.

I'm all for the bitter thing, relationships are just a waste of time.

I would, it would be interesting to see myself from a different point of view, plus due to my current loneliness both versions of me would just be happy to have someone

also what Isabiggles said



just answering a question here, no need to have a go at me about why there's nothing wrong with being single *cough cough* *Aled* *cough*
