Your point being?

I'd be glad to welcome you to GC, but we don't appreciate being treated like the emotional garbage dump.

Anything you post in myspace, unless restricted, is open to the public. Actions have consequences. Extrapolate from there.

I skimmed the rest of your post, but nothing caught my eye. Clean up your writing, post a decent intro, then try again.

Next!

Allow me to try and be more specific in my help to you:

This is a period -> . Become well acquainted with him, he'll make your sentences understandable.


You're new to these boards, so let me lay it out for you: you'll get flamed for poor grammar; however, people here are really nice and interested in what you have to say if you make even a half-assed effort at producing grammatically and syntactically correct sentences.

Now please, click the edit button (pencil and paper) icon above your initial post and try again [Smile]

"There is no ignorance, there is knowledge."

I completely agree with Rhonnie.
Now that you know the etiquette for posting here, we expect nothing less than perfect grammar. [Smile]
Perhaps an introduction and a few posts before seeking advice on emotional endeavours...

Don't worry about your ulcer, I'm going to have an aneurysm soon. The object of my affection lives some 18,000km away from me. As for your situation, speaking as someone in the vacuuous limbo between friendship and love, how do you know that you really love him?

A few questions: how old are you? The content of your post suggests to me, not very. Particularly your mum not liking him as he's two years older.

How much time do you really spend with him? You say you work and talk with him a lot, but how much do you really get to talk to him, and do you talk about serious stuff, or just inane, light-hearted stuff? Have the two of you talked until the early hours of the morning about the meaning of life?

I could go on, but I lack the desire or the time to do so. Before you say you love him, you really need to go on dates with him. Not dates, even. Watch a movie at home with him and snuggle. This'll give you time to find out all his quirks and habits.

Think long and hard about what you want to do. As with writing about your friend in a public domain, all actions have their consequences.

P.S. Real gentlemen don't make ladies sit on their laps, they get up and give them their seats. And they pull out their lady's chair before they sit down. And they hold the door for everyone, not just their lady.

Ehh, watching movies together while snuggling won't help you learn about his quirks (unless he's in the habit of passing gas everytime the protagonist speaks, or something like that). Invite him to do civic work with you, or hang out with your friends, or, best yet, ask him to help you move to a new house...

Does that have anything to do with your last date? [evil]

Nope. Just trying to come up with a movie-only quirk.

My last "official" date was three years ago; we went to a Chiz Ryder concert at his church. No gas-passing there, thankfully!

Did anyone else read this and think of Lucky's speech in Waiting for Godot?

Either that or one of Virginia Woolf's novels.

OK, so you went behind someone's back, and said something about them in a public forum that was probably not the business of anyone else in the forum other than the person you were bitching about, and then complain about YOUR life being hell? Oh man. When you get into the real world, you're SCREWED.

the guy: so yea this guy i like is kinda hitting on me i think he likes me he randomly hugs me at theatre he smiles at me alot he talks to me alot he works with me alot and when were sitting there i didnt have a seat and he made me sit on his lap so yea i think i love him becouse my chrushes have never felt like this before... help!
OK, first, lets talk grammar and spelling:
  • 'a lot' is two words.
  • That is one of the longest run-on sentences, EVER.
  • I is capitalised when referring to oneself.
  • There's only one h in crush.
  • There's an apostrophe in we're.
  • Because, not becouse.
  • Didn't has an apostrophe.
  • Don't type like you talk. Starting a sentence with, "so yea" doesn't convey intelligence.

Second, sitting on a guy's lap and talking to him a few times does not constitute love. You can't be in love with someone without spending real, quality time with them and seeing their reaction towards you in a more serious situation -- perhaps you should lay off the crappy Hollywood movies?

quote:

the issue: i am getting an ulser in my stomache from all of this i really like this guy i have never been on a date before my mom might not like him becouse he is 2 years older he is hot and i love him!

ulcer.

Again, I say if this kind of teenage nonsense is giving you an ulcer, the real world is going to FUCK YOU UP. Perhaps you should sit back, enjoy life, and just be happy with being you.

Pissed off at me will you get, if like Yoda I talk, mmmm? Murder grammar I do, but help it I cannot. [Razz]

Lay off the poor kid newf. Can't you remember back to when you were a teenager, finding this stuff out for the first time?

Broadway_lover, you fucked up big time publicly posting about your friend where she could see it too. Perhaps you might think before doing something like that again. Spend some time thinking on how you would feel if she had done the same to you. If you want to post about people publicly, particularly in a negative way, make sure it's somewhere where they won't read it.

As for your problem, it sounds like you have a typical teenage infatuation with this guy. This in no way means you love him. Being that he is older than you, he may well be trying to take advantage of you. If you really feel like the two of you have a connection, you have to explore it much more than it sounds like you have.

I just had an amusing thought. Not many teenage guys would like the theatre, right? And he randomly hugs you while you're there, which also seems like a somewhat irregular behaviour for a teenage male who has yet to declare his interest. This leads me to ask: how shall I put this, are you sure he even bats for the same team? [crazy]

I'm thinking that theatre == cinema in this case. They're used interchangeably in the US (although most people just say "movies").

For some reason I don't think you'd be sitting on someone's lap in a theatre (as in, one that shows plays and not movies).

I thought a feasible alternative for the times when "it just wasn't working right" came in the form a blue pill, not a pocketknife [evil]

Umm...eek! [Razz]

Sorry, I guess I erred in my execution, though it couldn't have been too bad given the response I elicited from Xanthine. [Wink] What can I say - some friends of mine have had a bit of fun commenting on some of the assorted oddities I often have around, and I'm pretty sure more than one has made a remark "Is that your "Swiss Army" Knife (Cybertool), or are you just happy to see me?" [Wink] [Depends on the friend, I suppose. [evil] ]
