Interesting. I know a lot of pussies who have to jump from relationship to relationship because they're afraid of being alone.

Oddly enough, these same people don't have much of a personality.

and I've known a lot of people that are never in relationships because they have no personality.

Hrmmm...met this girl in spring of last year, and since I was in a relationship at the time, we could only be friends...A fantastic, bright cute girl, and since that time she's been in a year long relationship with her bf, but we've been chatting a lot lately on msn, I've been her "shoulder to cry on", someone to vent too

Yeah, it's fucking tough when they're bitching to you about their boyfriend over MSN, and in reality you're like "YYYEEESSSSSSS!!!" but on MSN you're like "Oh? Really? You guys are fighting? Awww. That sucks. :("

Not that I've ever been in such a position or anything.

basically I started the thread as a joke to mrs. brick because we wanted some drama to dish to each other on msn... DIWC and Prickly Pete smelled my rouse a mile away and I applaud her/him.

Well, it does make it a bit harder to be full on sympathetic when she's told you in more or less words that her relationship with her boyfriend isn't serious anymore, and that she's been thinking about you...*ahem*

And how ironic that todays msn.ca lifestyle article is titled "5 Signs Your Girlfriend Wants Out"...enjoy:

Given the natural variation of human beings when it comes to their actions, beliefs and tastes, it is tricky to pin down specific reasoning behind specific behavior.

While women cling to the belief that men's actions are downright undecipherable, I don't believe we women are much easier to navigate. That being said, any man deserves a cheat sheet when it comes to finding out if his girlfriend wants out of their relationship.

Knowing our capacity for mood swings and PMS-induced outbursts, it may be hard to tell whether we've had a bad day, or we just really want to get out. If anything, you'll avoid a situation that too closely resembles Matt Damon dumping Minnie Driver on national television.

She's Distant – all the time

We all experience moments of distraction, but when your partner is in a constant state of unavailability, it might be a clue to her desire for a break. Many women feel guilty about wanting to break off a relationship and may choose to ignore those inclinations by ignoring you.

It's often easier to be confrontational when fighting about the relationship, if the underlying belief is that you're fighting for the greater good of the relationship itself. If she's given up all hope of saving the union, making eye contact with you and giving you her full attention will only act as reminders of the now-futile relationship.

Essentially, the longer she avoids you, the longer she gets to avoid having that final "talk." Everyone hates the talk.

She's Uninterested in Sex

Unless she really, really enjoys sex, it's very likely that the action between the sheets will wane. Many women have issues separating the emotional aspects of sex from the physical aspects of sex, and therefore may be not be inclined to get physical with someone they are starting to abhor.

If she never really enjoyed sex and only engaged in it to please you – yes, this can be the case sometimes – she certainly won't be willing to do so now that her interests have flown elsewhere. If the idea of breaking your heart is painful to her, she won't want to engage in an act defined by intimate coupling.

She Criticizes you

Whether she criticizes you in the name of saving the relationship, or just to annoy you, either action can be dubbed typical of a woman who wants out. Very much like men, there are some women who will willingly adopt undesirable traits with the hope that their partner will take it upon themselves to call it quits. This saves the woman (or man) from having to cope with the confrontation of breaking up and the guilt associated with being the perpetrator.

No one enjoys being criticized and she knows that sooner or later, you'll get fed up and crack.

She Starts Dating Someone Else

While this might appear ridiculously obvious, it is undertaken for the sake of those boyfriends who just can't seem to comprehend that the relationship is over and done with. Women who immediately take up with another man after the breakup (or even during its final moments) are without a doubt screaming at you, "it's over!" They're hoping against hope that the physical presence of another man will cause send the message that anything between the two of you is done with.

This category also applies to women who are in fact, cheating. Emotionally unfulfilled or tired of your own cheating, women are almost as likely as men to seek their fulfillment elsewhere. While men might attribute their wandering eyes to spontaneous bursts of testosterone, women are more inclined to gain something from their forbidden relationship, whether it's revenge or genuine attraction to another man.

She says She Doesn't Want to See you Anymore

Again a possible no-brainer, there are an assortment of women who will bite the bullet and come right out and say they want to end it. Complications arise when you, the man, start to believe you can save the relationship or change drastically in order to make it function smoothly. But if your girlfriend had the courage to sit down with you – and didn't break up with you over the phone, by email or by text message – chances are she's pretty serious about sticking to it. It might be a good idea to respect her decision.

Of course, all bets are off when she waltzes on up to you at the bar the week after, drunk as a skunk, and whispers dirty things in your ear. Ex-girlfriend etiquette is a whole other ballgame.

it's okay to cry

We all know breakups are hard and I genuinely hope that if you're relationship is failing, your soon-to-be-ex uses something other than a skywriter to tell you it's over. Remember, it's okay to cry (preferably in private) and that other, hotter ladies will undoubtedly be attracted to your blatant sensitivity.

sometimes I just think of the sage advice my friend Charlene gave me...

Hey, you know what paradise is?
It's a lie, a fantasy we create about people and places as we'd like them to be
But you know what truth is?
It's that little baby you're holding, it's that man you fought with this
morning
The same one you're going to make love with tonight
That's truth, that's love......



she knows I've been to paradise but I've never been to me.

o crist my buddy's ex boyfriend used to sing that song in full gaiety whenever he got drunk and we had to sit there and not look annoyed while he sang it to us.

and he would really crank the stereo too.

thanks for the great memory KRZYSIU.

And in a completely sarcastic way, I now golf-clap applaud you.

Why would you choose a deliberately provocative topic like this, one with which many people have painful experience, and a great deal of difficulty, by which to amuse yourself? Are you that bored Chris?

Relationships, infidelity, complex matters of the heart that sometimes lead to relationships ending, all of these are not things that should be taken lightly. They are serious. Many people (on this board and off) have been involved on both sides of this particular coin. It's not a laughing matter. A thread like this conjurs up memories and thoughts that make some very uncomfortable, they lead to pointless arguments filled with bitterness and scrapping, as you no doubt saw in this thread. People get upset, and why? Because you and "mrs brick" wanted a stupid fucking laugh on msn?

I've met you a couple of times now Chris, and on each of those times you struck me as a pleasant and stand-up guy, with a good head on his shoulders. Why you insist on pulling this kind of nonsense online baffles me, and is kinda disappointing.

Glad you got a laugh out of it.

Regards....Rob

well matt and rob (and anyone else offended...),

I post inflammatory stuff for my own amusement but sometimes am a little unthoughtful of how others might take it. Call it careless/selfishness on my own part. I post to stir controversy and conversation, and sometimes I can get a little a head of myself... I apologize if it reminded you of some unpleasant events or drama in your life or a friends.

just another example of why people should take everything I say with a grain of salt.

^_^



ps. it doesn't mean I'm going to stop being a horse's ass on here though...
