  • The fact that I have no motivation to do things. And that I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. Grrr, it sucks so much.
  • My turn.

    Stupid girl I am seeing decides to go to college in LA instead of Oakland. SUPER ANGRY.

    Why did i not stop talking to her? I stopped for like three weeks and then started again because i am dumb. So she says to me, "oh blah blah i am going to san diego for a day before going to new zealand oh blah blah i am going to hang out with my friend the 35 year old guy in the band".

    Who wrote a creepy song about her and she was all upset about it and yelling at me about how creepy he was. Today it's "oh he's so awesome he asked me to be his girlfriend."

    One day? You spend ONE DAY with this guy?

    Did I mention I flew 2,000 miles to see this girl? I AM STUPID, obviously.

    And also I had an audition today, and we were supposed to do a cover song, but they played it in a key too high for me, so I could not hit the high note, and when I finally got them to put in the right key, I again could not hit the high note, probably because I was so freaked out and frustrated by that point. I finally got it the very last time but I looked terrible already because of that.

    I am totally upset and I hate everyone on earth except for Kenshiro, because he would just punch everyone until their heads exploded and that would solve it all.

    No, instead I am feeling like Hikaru Ichijo. DAMMIT.

    Why are you upset? I know you guys are upset about something.
  • Do not worry Karaoke everyone does stupid stuff, here is mine.

    I used to be upset back in the day, and I do not regret it because I learned many thing. there was the time i drove almost 300 miles and almost got lost to see a girl that I had not seen since I left Peru.

    I did not care I had to work and that I had classes that say, I just bought a crappy map of the east from a convenient gas store and then I got the directions from the place the girl was living, oh also never mind that at that one would be my first time outside of VA by myself and I had to spent about 60 dollars in gasoline. Once I got there I was basically the driver of the girl and her roomate that also came from Peru to work in Burger King for 4 months (I did not get it , they came from Peru legally and they work for 4 months in Burger King and they had to pay for their own ticket and they had to pay a bunch of stuff, I was kind of disappointed of the deal they got after all both of them came from a veru prestigious University in Peru).

    Anyhow the dude was cool but the girl never left him during the whole time, enough to say that day before both of them worked until 6 a.m. in a double shift. Come one I went there to talk to her and most of the time she was sleeping. That pissed me off so much but it was the passive old me and I just politely drove them to whatever place they needed to go , it was my first time in Jersey and (sorry people from Jersey) I was not impressed as much as the first time I saw Crystal City in Northern Virginia, but then it didn't help that they didn't know where everything was and we got lost.

    Eventually I got home at 10 p.m. at night and I made me swear that I would never drive 300 or more miles just to see a girl who a had a crush back when I was 14.

    At the time I wanted to made my exterior look like Roy Focker but like Karaoke I was feeling EMO Hikau IChijo! :x just after the fat dude got browned up. and that girl was like Min Mei with lines like "Oh, you will never get lost, and you must now your way around since you drive all the day here" and also did I mention she slept A LOT. It is time to find me a Claudia or Misa or even better Millia <img class=" title="In Love" />

    Now do not even get me started with the next stuff that happened in the last 2 years. I am Glad it is over!
  • We can re-name the thread 'Feeling Emo: Ask me why.'

    I'm feeling slightly emo right now, but I don't have the best of reasons.

    One, the whole Chris Benoit murder/suicide thing is getting to me. Dex, my fiance', is very into wrestling (despite what you all may think of it), and, though I'm not a fan, I respect his hobbies. The one wrestler that I knew for years, respected for his INCREDIBLE ability, and basically put above all others was Chris Benoit. Hell, I used to have his music on my Nano. But, after everything that's happened (I was a media junkie yesterday, checking Google every hour on the hour to get updated info), I don't really know how to feel. I respected him so much, when I was told he died, I bawled like a sissy girl. Then I find out the circumstances (his 7 year old SON for fucks sake!), and it's like...who the fuck was he? I don't know, it's yayakoshi.

    Now, one of my best friends is going through a really REALLY hard time (is being evicted from her house, and due to that, OD'd on prescription pills, but is out of the hospital now at least), and we offered to let her stay with us. I feel like a bastard because part of me REALLY doesn't wanna share our house. It's selfish, but it's also a studio, and there's not a whole, whole lot of room. Plus, she's a wild child, always wantin' to party, and me and Dex aren't like that, for the most part. I know I'm doing the good friend thing, and I seriously need to stop being a cunty bitch.

    And on top of all that stupid, emo-ish feelings, today's my anniversary. And no, he didn't forget. Midnight, we were on a crowded bus, having to get up in, oh, four hours (which is probably why I'm feeling like a cunty bitch) and says 'Happy Anniversary, baby.' That made me smile.

    So, even in the midst of stupid stuff, I guess you can always find a reason to smile.
  • I hate popped collars. 'nuff said
  • *rubs Jerry's shoulder*

    Shh, there there. It'll be ok.
  • They made my sandwich wrong one time at the Subway. I wrote a poem about it and posted it to my Livejournal, though.
  • I'm allllllll set.

    See, back in freshman / sophmore highschool years, I was emo a lot of the time. Especially when my girlfriend at the time broke up with me after about a year and then was going out with an older guy less than a week later (and thought I would be completly okay with it).

    Then one day I realized that I have much better things to do then be emo. So I stopped, and moved onto something else.

    I dunno... Whenever I get really tired, I get extremely moody and violent, and esentially emo, but now when I feel like that I just go off and sleep somewhere for a while. Then I move on.

    Still, I get that people have some serrious problems occuring in their life, so please don't let me put a hitch in the venting. Hell, I'll even help y'all out if I can.

    I hear that. I used to watch rassling back in high school (when the WCW still existed), and he was definitely one of my favorite wrestlers (secretly a hero). Mainly because he was this comparatively little, tough-as-nails dude who was taking on other guys who easily had 100 lbs on him. What's kind of odd is that about two weeks ago, i was on wikipedia reading up on all the wrestlers from back then, and i sort of gravitated towards his article and was impressed that he was still doing as well as he was 10 years ago.

    Then over the weekend he killed his family and himself. That sucked a lot. It reminded me a bit of the Virginia Tech massacre, where one extremely broken person comes to the conclusion that the best way to deal with their problems is by killing people and then committing suicide. I'm sure it's at least a little different in the nuances of their personalities and motivations, but the results are near identical.
  • I don't have a girlfriend; I never had, and I never will.

    I never had one in high school or college, because I was too shy to ask and too nerdy to be asked.

    I don't have one now because I'm an engineer, which means that meeting someone at work is out (seriously, engineering is a sausage-fest. Good for the Queen Bee types, bad for everyone else.) And I'm not rich, not hot, and not tall, so I'm not going to get any action at a bar or a club.

    And I never will, because the only thing going for me is that I am apparently a Nice Guy, which means that when I'm in the forty-plus demographic I'll be the first choice for all those desparate single women who want to hit the "snooze" button on their biological clock. Except no, ma'am, I'm not going to be your living dildo. If you didn't like me before, why do you like me now? All that's different is that I've got grey hair.
  • I have found out that Leprechauns do not exist
  • I am unsure as to wether I'll have eneugh moneys to pay the rent this month.

    Speaking as someone who met his wife playing D&D, i believe there's no such thing as "too nerdy." I also was shy / socially awkward in high school and college - well, i still am. I confessed my fondness for her during an AIM conversation, and she announced that she "didn't really like me" - which a little painful, but my head didn't asplode and i didn't die from shame. We were still friends, and we got to know each other a little better, and we ended up dating, and the rest is history.

    Your mileage may vary, but there are lady nerds out there of all ages who need love too.

    It's not that bad, I work with 3 engineers who are women. But I think the type of engineering is the biggest factor. :|

    Word. Nerdy chicks need love too... they just have to roll for initiative.

    I agree with xenomouse, you shouldn't be embittered quite yet. I also think people who think "OMG, I totally NEED a boy/girlfriend, then I'd be happier than I am now" have the wrong approach. Relationships are about compromise and about giving up a certain amount of individuality for someone you like being with-- some people think having a significant other means a full-time groupie paying attention to them so they can forget about their insecurities or contribute to already rampant narcissism. I think being comfortable with yourself and who you are is job one. Thinking someone else will come along and "fix" your outlook is a little short-sighted.

  • Look, there are PLENTY of geeky females, as well as seemingly geeky but outwardly trendy females out there. And sometimes it's about being persistant.

    I thought I'd never get a guy because I was a homely little thing, fat and short, and I had no idea how to dress my fat, short body, and I was painfully shy. Frankly, the only reason I spoke to boys was to beat the crap outta them. Boys had "secret" crushes on me that they wouldn't speak aloud because they didn't want anyone else to know.

    When I went away to Job Corps, at 19, I said I was gonna put away those boy-crazy, not getting any ways aside, and focus soley on me. When I got there, all the guys outnumbered the girls, and everyone was pussy hungry, so I had my pick. I didn't bother with most of them, because they were looking for something specific, but I did talk to a couple of them, one of them being Dex. When I first met Dex, he was 6'3, 145, glasses, wild head of nappy hair, undersized shirt, over-sized jeans. He had told me he was a pokemon master at one point, but retired cuz it got too easy for him. He called himself a vampire, and his best friends were building him a Yu-Gi-Oh deck, so he could play with the rest of them.

    Needless to say, he was a fucking geek. And I thought he was cool, but wanted nothing to do with him. He faught me tooth and nail at every turn, was there for me when I needed him, and refused to step aside when I told him to leave me alone. In the end, I always say he wore me down, but I finally just admitted my own feelings. I fell in love with him. And today's our 3rd anniversary, and we're both real excited.

    If anyone would like to know how geeky we are, for my anniversary present he got me a DS. For his, I got him a Jimmy Snuka t-shirt, an old school Gameboy SP, and Barry Gordy's The Last Dragon.

    I guess alls I'm trying to say is 'never say never', because I totally thought the same thing about myself. I'm sure just because you're a nice guy, doesn't mean you'll be relegated into the friend category forever. You just gotta wait for that right one.
  • I am not the nice guy. I have gone out with about a billion girls. I was with one girl for over 5 years, and after that I was like, "Okay, I done with relationships for a while." And so again, daited a million girls, but for some reason this one got to me and again I acted stupid because of it. And once did not listen to my friends. Bleh. I need to listen to them.

    Then again, they need to listen to me, like my friend who got a new girlfriend two weeks before going to Japan for months. I was like, "TERRIBLE idea" and now that he is there he agrees.
  • Oh well Karaoke , be glad that you're singing is not as bad as this Linda Finkle Nominee

    If that isn't the case then I've got some serious issues... are you sure? I'm pretty sure the only reason I date women is so I can have a sounding board of someone telling me how great I am. :?

    I'm real glad that worked out for you and all, and maybe I'm reading it wrong, but I have positively no interest in girls that make you work for them to like you. There's better things to do with your time than hound after the same girl that isn't showin' you no love. The sad fact is there's another girl out there who's just as fun, and will like you immediately, without a six month waiting period before you get to go to the movies together.
  • My singing is great, I just fucked up.

    And Dave, I totally agree with you, that is way too much work.
  • Stupid EBgames saying I needed to preorder to get a copy of The Darkness.
  • I just walked in and got my copy.

    But I got it for PS3, when I asked for The Darkness something in the way the guy said "Xbox 360?" suggested they had none.

    It wasn't even like that, dude. I do agree, there are better things to do with your time then chase around females, and it wasn't that I was making him jump through hoops. We were very good friends on campus, had a lot of fun together. There was another guy who made me a promise that he never kept, and I stupidly ended up putting Dex off, just wanting to be friends. He flatly refused to quit. If you wanna call him stupid for it, fine, and if you wanna think I'm a cunt for it, copastetic, but it's not always exactly as it seems.

    A popular misconception about females is that every one of us wants our guys to run a Ninja Warrior-esque obstacle course in order to win our affection. If you come across a chick like that, sorry for you, maybe you should look for a different kind of lady. But not all of us are like that. We're not all psychotic, closet sluts with a dominatrix streak.

    Some of us are eccentric, closet freaks with a dominatrix streak. <img class=" title="Mr. Green" />
  • Double post!

    ALSO, sometimes it's worth putting in the work to chase someone around. In the end, you find out what was REALLY going on, and you didn't let someone worth while get away because you knew there were plenty of other fish in the sea.
  • Bass I'm totally with Dave on this one . Honestly If you don't want to be my friend , then fuck off . I don't go around chasing my male friends around , to come over and watch a game of rugby or go and check a movie with me . WHY THE HELL SHOULD IT BE DIFFERENT FOR YOU GUYS ?
  • This reminds me... the best dating/relationship advice i ever got was from my wife (and this was after we had already been married for a few years). The advice is: "don't put your significant other on a pedestal."

    It's good to show them admiration and to occasionally shower them with gifts, but when that's taken to a sycophantic level, it becomes damaging to the relationship. First of all, people don't really like being worshipped, and if they do, there's probably something wrong with them (sorry Dave). Also, in setting someone up on a pedestal, you're probably setting your expectations for them too high (and thus setting yourself up for disappointment). When your adonis passes gas or your goddess has a grating laugh, the disappointment is all that much greater.

    This sort of goes against the nerd ethic (at least the one i adhered to for a while) that you need to cling to whatever you love and devote as much of your free time to it as possible.

    That's okay, everyone already knew there was something wrong with me.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's that you don't like Otogi 2.

    Well, shit :|
  • "Spankminister" said:

    WRONG.
  • I mean, if you wanted to run a Ninja Warrior-esque obstacle course for shits and giggles, please do be my guest, I'll totally be there with a towel at the end.

    I'm thinking ya'll aren't understanding me...in certain situations, it's best to fight for what you want, to not let it go. And in other situations, when you know this female is fucking with you for the sake of fucking with you, because she simply loves to be persued, it's so completely not worth it. It goes the same way with chicks. One of my former best friends was like that. If he didn't get chased by me, if I didn't come looking for him whenever he stormed away, I was a bad girl.

    So yeah, DON'T CHASE ANYBODY! If anyone wants you to chase them, dude or chick, gay, straight, jew, gentile, what-the-fuck-ever, don't do it cuz they're dildos. But if there's a situation where you feel the need to fight the good fight and stand your ground for what you want, then fucking do it, and put in the work!

    And when you have the fucking relationship that you may or may not have had to fight for, for whatever reason, give it your best shot, do what you have to, and, if it don't work out, don't look at it like 'I did all this shit for nothing'. Call it experience, tally up your points, and move the fuck on.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! That's what I get for talking about relationships in a forum full of dudes...*falls over*
  • I mean more that I can get a date pretty easily, I am not going to follow a girl around who keeps saying no when I can find a girl who says yes without huge difficulty. That is a waste of time and I would way rather be pursuing a girl who wanted it rather than trying to change the mind of someone who told me no.

    And it's not all guys here. Grumps! Where are you?!
