Is this acceptable?
a) You need to generate some material for future bad sitcom plots.
b) You're a 90s stereotype of a gay man.
c) You just don't give a fuck.
idk, I haven't really given it much thought.
Ross screaming 'WE WERE ON A BREAK'. But I guess that side of it is none of my business.
Not that much, since at any one time there will be an episode of Friends on somewhere and of those, 60% will have some sort of reference to being 'on a break'.
that can only be on once every 3 months or something
how you can be on a break from a relationship and still in it. Sounds odd.
probably not a good thing.
cheating isn't that bad.
People make too much of an issue over it.
but to blurt out "cunt" like some illiterate little child doesn't do you any favours.
I'm sorry if someone cheated on you and broke your heart, but please try and understand that what is bad for you isn't necessarily gonna be the same for everyone.
I've had people cheat on me. I wasn't a little bitch about it.
I probably wouldn't hold a grudge though as we would be square then
so when you said it was unacceptable up there ^, you actually meant to add depending on many factors.
There are some times when cheating is clearly a bit bad/wrong. I do however think some people are a bit hysterical about it/
Hang on, murder happens but I'd still say it's unacceptable. Just because things occur doesn't mean we should just say, 'Shit happens, deal with it'.
The two are quite difference and one shouldn't necessarily affect moral perception of the other.
I am quite confused as to what your point is.
surely they're not a happy couple?
could be a drunken mistake I suppose. I wouldn't try and go for someone married I don't think, anything else is fair game and I refer you to Cervantes opinions on Love and War
then surely they owe it to the other party to break up first. Non?
which we don't live in.
a kiss is just a kiss
a sigh is just a sigh
the fundamental things of life,
as time goes byyyy....
than a more casual relationship.
I'm not denying that for some people it will seriously screw them up, but to anothers it is no more than an annoyance.
I don't know why I have cheated on people. I have done in a fair proportion of relationships. I guess I'm not always a particularly nice person.
In fact I wasn't a person you'd have wanted to be friends with from the ages of about 18-22. I wanted mine now and I didn't really care who I hurt to get it.
In summary cheating isn't an admirable thing. It is however a very human thing to do, and it shouldn't (in most cases) be regarded as heinous as you seem to believe
I couldn't say so for sure cos I've done worse.
here's hoping anyway
I'd never have expected that website to be up and running still.
it just seemed like the right thing to say
But "Take it to the Lipster, sister" will live on in all our hearts.
since it's not technically cheating, I don't really get the idea that people can be on a break but should still be faithful to the person they're on a break from? Surely that's just a relationship without any of the intimacy?
i couldn't stand being in the kind of relationship where you were together, then on a break, then back together again, etc. way to waste my time and fuck with my head. on a break from what exactly? from how you feel about each other or what you want from each other? or from the responsibility to try not to hurt the other person? of course it's different for everyone, but if someone i was with needed a 'break', i would consider that a break-up, and try to move on from them, because something would clearly be wrong in that relationship, and no good has ever come of me going back to someone i'd split up with.
so yeah, if they're on a break, for me it'd be fair game because they're not together. kissing someone who is definitely in a relationship, though, would be no-go for me.
a working lunch?
Can't you just share a KitKat? Go for a chunky one if you're feeling particularly racy
then definitely not.
of course it means something
also it's really the person who's in the relationship (or on a break from it) who's mostly responsible anyway.
nothing good will come of it.
I read this thread as:
Killing someone who's in a relationship but 'on a break'
I thought it would be about how long people thought it would take before their dead body was found.
If not, who cares?
(ah, no one wants to hear my stories)
I don't think you should feel that guilty; you can only go on what you've been told. I've done something a little like this and the story given to me was kind of like the guy was giving the girl the runaround/brush off... so I negged him a bit to her, tried to make her feel better. Then a tiny bit of a kiss... and he called her, and she went. I don't think this is bad, but I told this story to someone recently and they were like 'tut tut, you naughty boy!'
Cheating... is a thorny issue.
It's not like killing someone though and people can/do genuinely get better after being c.u next tuesday's for a while.
it depends on if you know their girlfriend or boyfriend and how emotionally stable the person you're kissing is
if they are a nutjob, and likely to take it a bit seriously, or if they are just looking for a bit of reassurance, AVOID.
BUT mostly it depends on how you feel. If you think you'll take it seriously, or if you're doing it to make yourself feel better, or if you really fancy them (but they are thinking of going back to their boyfriend/girlfriend) then DON'T.
actually, just don't. it's probably unnecessary hassle, unless you can avoid seeing them again in the near future.
"we're separated, he's at home, I'm out on the razz, trying to get my end away", cf the trial seperation, for morons who can't work out how to break up with each other. When you break up it's got to be like taking a plaster off, painful but over quickly, else you could spend weeks (or in my history YEARS) trying to save a relationship that's so disfunctional it makes jordan and andre look like the perfect couple.
Steer clear of them, one minute they'll be kissing you, the next they'll be weeping on your shoulder...
But I'd still act exactly the same way next time. It was definately worth it.
