That picture never came up when I first saw your comment :lol:

You look like you have almost no hair entirely, so that's passable :yes: :P


My actual head hair is nowhere near as ginger as when I was a boy, it fades massively with age. I kind of miss it :(

If I keep my hair close cropped now I can pass myself off as a proper ginger because of the beard.

Well, story time, a week ago I met someone, we really got on and, to put it bluntly, sex happened. After a day or two of talking, I stop getting texts, and I've been trying to get back in touch all week, today I received a text from her saying she's seeing someone. Bloody marvelous.

Sorry to bring a random topic to this topic, I just needed to vent, sort of stuck between shocked, hurt and furious over here.

I've avoided doing so for various reasons, but I'm in exactly the same position right now. I'm at the lowest I've been for well over a decade :-(

@CelestialWishDaniel

Shit, that sucks.

On the plus side, she's probably not someone you'd want to be involved with. Find her boyfriend and let him know she's a cheat (unless she only met him after you guys did the dirty).

I can only assume you know a very different cross section of society to me. While I acknowledge that it happens, I'd say resorting to physical violence was relatively rare in that situation.

Frankly, it feels like I've been cheated on, because it wasn't even a drunk accident or what have you, it was us having a day together over at my house and it got a bit romantic, call me old fashioned, but I didn't think I needed to say 'So wanna be in a relationship with me?' after kissing started xD

Must admit, kind of tempted to send her boyfriend a message, however, I know that won't achieve anything, I mean, yeah, a message saying 'Your girlfriend was in my bed two days before you got together' could do some damage, but that won't make things as they were before, at the end of the day, she's the one that did it, so getting into a fight with her boyfriend would just be pointless, as it's misguided anger. I have a week of shows ahead, anyway, so this couldn't have come at a better time, I can use this week to get over her and keep myself busy, I reckon.

What I meant was, if she was with the guy when she slept with you, and you didn't know, you're saving this guy by letting him know his girlfriend is a skank.

If she slept with you, then got with him, kinda tough titties and that totally sucks.

Yeah, if my girlfriend was cheating on me I'd want to fucking know.

But on the other hand, can what you don't know hurt you? Like is ignorance bliss?

I don't know by the way, that's more a rhetorical.

Could you forgive a girlfriend if she cheated?

Are you saying you'd be fine with your girlfriend being the town bus aslong as you didn't know? :lol:

I'm not saying that no. I was asking questions.

I think the answer probably varies with the situation. There's a difference between a one off, and one every other week.

Though fuck me if I could advise you on how to go about doing that. Fucking hell.

Two people at work got together and can't see it developing well. Do workplace relationships ever work?
