    I met my ex at university. I thought he was probably *** but liked him anyway. >_> Eventually I told him I liked him and he said he liked me too, we were together for about 5 months and he dumped me two weeks before exams. *angryface*

    Yeah, I have absolutely nothing to say, because I don't like to share but I know the point you're trying to make and frankly there's a lot of FAIL in your remark.

    Don't tell me to stay out of any thread, buddy.

    I still stand by what I said earlier in this topic.

    you don't like to share your various rejections and failed attempts at relationships? OOPS!

    Yeah, I've had bad relationships, and I've had good ones. i'm not gonna deny that in the least bit. I've also had rejections before and Iv'e had to reject girls as well. It's all a part of life.

    You're just thinking i'm gonna get angry and react becuase you're trying to point me out as a no date loser and try to just own me because you have a successful relationship, and yadda yadda yadda.

    Seriously, this is why I think this topic is silly. This simply gives people too much of an opportunity to put each other down and give people huge egos for no real reason.

    Relationships are not that big of a deal, especially to make a separate thread and give people a chance to brag and make others feel bad.

    So, give it up rambo, and cool it with the testosterone.

    there was no reason for you to call me out either. the topic is retarded but there's no reason to post about it being retarded. you COULD just not post. i dont really call my relationship successful either since im not that into it but yea.

    Well, I could just not post but i did want to say something, so that makes the point pretty much null. But you called me out on my post, so I decided to say something back.

    A useless argument as it is now? Yeah sure, but don't tell me there was no reason to retaliate to your post, you did irk me just a bit.

    At this point, I'm more than willing to drop it if you're just as willing.

    I met my girlfriend at the place I now work. She started months before me and I had no idea she liked me before we started dating. She would stop by and talk to me while I was cleaning something, or just make polite small talk, until one night when I accidentally said something that hurt her feelings. Well, I was just joking around with her, but to her it was a sensitive subject, so I walked over and apologized. Later that night I went onto mEYEspace and this guy I work with started asking me about what happened that night, so I explained and later I found out she had a mEYEspace too (who doesn't nowadays?). So we started talking to each other online and at work and eventually we started dating. The real drama didn't start till a few weeks after it happened though...

    Her sister didn't like me at first. You see, she's preppy and I'm a total geek all the way. Sis wanted her to go out with this football player that just started working at the place. This guy was really into my girlfriend too, so I was like "Oh great, I finally get a girlfriend, but it'll be a short ride". He would find any opportunity to work with her or talk to her, plus, her sister had nearly everyone in the store rooting for him, not me. There were even a couple of bosses who would have liked to see her go out with him. Finally, it all boils down to this party that everyone at work was going to. Her sister pushed her into taking this guy to the party, since he didn't know how to get there. The problem was that I had to work late. They would be at the party hours before I arrived. I trusted her though, and after my shift I bolted to the party. When I arrived, the guy was drunk and sulking about how my girlfriend had turned down all his advances. I was SO relieved after hearing this. It seemed like everyone had this party set up so that she would dump me and go out with him. It was scary though, because he started yelling at people and eventually walked off down the road at night, in the country (with no street lights or anything). We saw him in the morning sitting on the couch with a bottle of Smirnoff in his hands.

    He got transferred a week after the party, and I'm still dating the same girl. Her sister and I are on good terms too.

    Like Strike, I have neither the time, nor the desire to attempt to wage some insignificant battle with someone who thinks he's got his future wife by his side, star-crossed love who'd never ever leave his side, or whatever other bs sentimental garbage there is. But, since you've asked for it...

    Strike and I are a bit more seasoned when it comes to romance and relationships. I'm 22 years old son, I've been around the block in more ways than one just a little more than you. People often live just to be in relationships, and make such huge deals about being in them. It's some amazing social event, not unlike social interactions at the watering hole in the African Savannah. It's ridiculous to listen to people who are not even in the 15+ age division talking about they've found their true soulmate. Maybe I am too cynical about these love and relationship things, and should have kept my comment to myself, I will give you that. Instead of jumping on my back about my comment, maybe you should have thought "Hmm, I wonder why he'd say something like that?"

    I hold no ill feelings towards people who are happily engaged in meaningful relationships. I wish everyone who is doing well with their relationship the best of luck, and do hope things work out. Just remember not to lose yourself in the relationship. You don't _need_ a boyfriend/girlfriend to be happy, remember that. There's actually scientific evidence that shows that the endorphins associated with happiness from seeing someone's face wears away in time. It's biologically and chemically linked to growing accustomed or addicted to something like say nicotine based on cellular receptors. As Strike said, I too have had good and bad experiences with dating. It's just part of life, you live and learn. I would not trade or take back any of my experiences or memories because I would not be the person I am today.

    And as far as what your comment obviously implied, I'd like to strike that down as well. In terms of my female counterparts, and my ability to secure them, I have no problem in that area. I am someone who takes care of how he looks by exercising regularly and eating properly (I wonder how many of you can benchpress their weight easily?) I also, bathe regularly, don't smell like body odor mixed with bad breath, and step outside of my house more than just to head down to Burger King or the local Gaming Store to pick up their copy of the newest video game. Learn from not just your surroundings, but also from people, instead of picking fights.

    I kind of apply what Jim's saying to my personal position. After all, I too am a brutal, cold sociopath unafraid of destroying others' lives for the improvement of my own. Mwahaha!!!

    ...Just kidding about that first part: Jim is not a brutal, cold sociopath (however, I still am!!!). But anyways, Jim and Strike certainly have a right to post in this topic, and it isn't spam in the least because by sharing their pessimism, they are in fact sharing relationship stories. Strike thinks you guys shouldn't get all worked up over nothing, and Jim even thinks that it's "garbage" to freak out over relationships.

    I think Jim's a little too extreme in his pessimism, but I feel that he's generally correct: a lot of people who say they've already met their "one true love" at age 16-17 are just trapped in a world full of clich├ęs. Dating is good fun, but don't let it get in the way of your greater aspirations...After all, you have an entire lifetime to find that special person.

    It is hard to get teenagers to believe that they dont know everything, much less, that they really have no clue as to "love". It is extremely rare nowadays to find your "match" in HS. Most mates are found post HS, quite often in college or grad school level. (or equivilent age to that time of schooling).

    I met my wife during law school, she was a year behind me. I went to a gathering for some mutual friends that were "dumb" enough to try to pass the CPA exam while attending law school! She knew one person who tried (no one passes the 1st time on that test) and I knew another. Of course, the testers knew each other, ergo the same watering hole was used. It was quite a good time. The funny part is....I was going there planning on meeting up with another lady friend. That didnt work out too well, but I started talking with this other cute law student that was there......a few years later, we were married and have been for 14 yrs. now. (And yes, she knows I went there to try and meet up w/ someone else.....we didnt know each other yet.)

    Bottom line.....you never know when or where a potential lifetime mate will appear. It just usually happens post HS. So, dont sweat it too much right now. In fact, I would recommend more dating of different people when you are in HS and college.

    When did all this soulmate/life partner stuff come into it? The thread's just for relationship stories. It doesn't have to mean "OMG I MET MY SOULMATE ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG". Who knows if those things even exist? But it's nice to have some feelgood stories once in a while, and it'd be even nicer to get some feelgood stories without the cynics coming in and shooting everyone down.

    I think you will find me to a pretty positive and happy person in most facets of my life. Cynical though at times too, I have my reasons. I'm also a pretty heavy science-thinker, I find reasons for stuff. I used to think there was that whole wonderful romantic side to love. And like I said before, I am glad to hear that there are others that still can. I'm not denying that I have been coming off from a couple bad breakups, which obviously affects my viewpoint and opinions. I think you need to be cautious when attempting a relationship.

    Also, I apologize for de-railing the "atmosphere" of this thread. However, relationships are not all happy-go-lucky joyous accounts. Frustration, sadness, and anger are all natural components of what being in a relationship is all about. I was providing some advice/stuff to think about since most of the people who come to these boards are under 18. There's a romantic notion that younger people get caught up in, and it is rubbish (sorry, but it is). I think there's a real testament into being self-reliant, and able to stand on your own two feet rather than needing to find a mate to feel loved or special. Those people who need to do those things, really need to learn to love themselves first, as corny and cliche it sounds.

    In terms of my more negative tones in my other areas, I have cleaned up the more venomous aspects of my posts. I apologize there as well, I do not usually act in that manner. I know I'll find someone someday, but I'm just not in a hurry to find her yet, I have a lot of things I want to finish on my own first. Again, I wish you all luck.

    Relationships, I think, are a very healthy part of the human experience. It may be a serious relationship between two twentysomethings, or that naive, teenage romance that are usually innocent and fun. I noticed a lot of my friends started opening up after they were in a relationship and, at least in their case, became better at socializing in general. In my teen years, I used to be very cynical when it came to couples because it was a time when my parents were splitting up, and I started noticing that a lot of people I knew had divorced parents. The scathing, daily diatribes I gave about dating in my high school years were a phase though, as I stopped caring so much about the people around me.

    Relationships are neat because they're all built differently and have different dynamics. One aspect might be a big deal to one couple while it is not even a trifle to another. Teenage romances, or first romances, are interesting because for the people involved, it is the first time they have felt strong feelings of admiration towards someone and had it reciprocated back. It seems like many of our firsts happened way back when we were learning to walk or read Golden Books. Relationships can also yield the feeling of heartbreak and rejection, which are obviously negative, but a part of the human experience. Some feel it more than others, but that's part of the reason we exist - to feel. Having feelings is a part of the package of life. We don't choose to be born, so the fact that we're destined to experience pain and love is dreadful and beautiful at the same time.
