it didn't use to, when i was younger, it was all over the place.
Im not sure that being in love goes well with normality.....so I kind of ignore that
Middle class people always find love so I'm expecting good things
Not been 'in love' for a while. It's good when it happens though
It can be great to be not in love too though
Being in love can actually be painful. Weird
it can mean you are more free to love the whole world.
Loving the world is great too. But it can hurt a lot too.
5 years to the day since we first smooched too!
Happy anniversary, make it special
I've got a crush on someone I've barely talked to, think that's the closest I'll get from now on
Far from it
used to happen aaaaaalll the time. Not sure I ever thought I'd miss it.
One of those days. Doesn't help that I had a weird dream, in which I seemed to be at some sort of event (in typical dream logic, there was no real context for it) in which I remember trying to go to increasingly desperate lengths to start a conversation or something with an old friend I had a crush on (and still do, I s'pose, though I've not seen her in aaaages)...
Incidentally, I want to mention that this dream progressed beyond this into areas notable for how weird they went. An old university came up to me and gave me a message from my aunt; the message read that there were some parts that I had to acquire in order to facilitate the repairing of a machine -- the parts in question were snails. It all goes hazy here; I think the enterprise to find snails became some sort of big business venture, and it was - at this point - the 1920s, or something (I seem to remember a 1920s-looking girl with a gun at some point, for whatever reason), and I stood for a photograph with a lot of other people.
it didn't go *that* weird
some good cinematography, too, if I remember right.
I was thinking about the girl in question not long ago again; maaan was that some melancholy thinking. There's probably one situation where'd there'd be a chance of me seeing her again and, even then, I think the best case scenario would just be really bittersweet (in a nice way, but still). Or something.
I'm aware I sound like a massive tool, har har.
this thread made me think of a line from this song
don't know why, haven't heard it in years
if this is the sturday night thread now then hi everyone
she's just gone home for the a week or so and I'm drunk so meh. but yeah, all is well.
how's your tricks
Did like someone but like all girls they got bored after about 3 weeks. What is going on bam
I'm pretty tired
All the better for it.
The drummer in this
His face is just fecking beautiful, his eyes are amazing and look how gorgeous he is in this, look how beautiful his nose is, I fancy the fuck out of him so bad
4 years and counting. It's fucking disgusting.
Hope it lasts foreeeeeevr and ever
the unrequited kind
Started following a girl on Twitter earlier this week and been speaking to her all day. I've kind of fell hard and fast here.
It's always good to have slight feelings for girls you're never gonna meet.
no it's not that.
Been with my girlfriend 6 years.
Its weird, never thought I would be the guy to have a long-term relationship at this age, but here I am.
she's my best friend too.
Met during 1st year of uni, so basically our whole adult lives have been together. Would echo Hello_Sadness's heartwarming comment - she's my best friend too.
First and foremost my George Foreman of 7 years this March 8th. Damn. That's ages innit.
But my new Thinly Veiled George Foreman is brilliant.
have loads of love for friends and relatives though, obvs.
The little lurker.
but we're both way to cautious right now to call it love. Thanks for checking
waiting for someone to let it slip - half hoping you aren't the first one to just blurt it by accident, but then anxiously wanting to say it/hear it. Then if you do blurt it, it being a massive weight off your shoulders, and the best thing ever when they say it back.
I'm constantly having the fear she might tell me to fuck off at any moment as it is anyway but I "pretend" not to care because I'm trying not to let that kind of thing bother me any more
If she figures out how far above my weight I'm punching, I'm doomed!
what your situation is and that doesn't matter to her and she likes you just the way you are?
I think she's just prone to the odd freak out every now and then so I'm trying my best to just be cool and enjoy it (and mostly am)
In the first month of my relationship I had a mini freak out. It was mainly because I had all these strong emotions for him and I was scared of both how I felt and the possible rejection of those feelings (which is totally normal) and I started to act uncomfortable around him - thankfully he confronted me about it and we talked it out and I started to relax. What I'm saying is early in relationships it's totally normal to have these moments.
as we're both just out of long and difficult relationships ourselves we're both not jumping in too much (which is fine) but we still hang out quite a lot and it's real nice. I think there's the added factor that we belong to a fairly tight group of friends (although we only met a couple months ago) and she's a bit worried that it could potentially fuck that up. We have talked about it and we are fine (for now) I just get a bit edgy sometimes about her (but it's mostly nice!)
and it's still just a month in. You're getting used to each other. Also, maybe try put a positive spin on her fears, instead of freaking out about what would happen if it fucks up turn it around to how great it will be in a few months when you can double date with friends in the group...or something similar.
and also not to freak her out. Like yeah every-time we hang it's more fun and could potentially go that way, but every now and then she'll shut off and say "I don't kiss my friends" and be a bit weird with me. This usually passes but yeah.
Because that's a little silly if you've already kissed. Does she not want a relationship and she's just trying to tell you in a weird way? As in "I don't kiss my friends" = I see you only as a friend? If so she needs to either cut that out as friends do kiss/you're only a month in. Or she needs to stop kissing you.
and been intimate, she just says she can't work out what she wants. Like usually when I first meet up with her she'll be a bit stand off ish and then chill out after a while and be OK with it. I dunno it's weird because as I say 90% it's completely fine and great and we're just hanging out and it's not a commitment yet or whatever but then she'll occasionally say and do things like that.
Before Christmas she was pretty firmly "no I think we should just be friends" then she went home to Copenhagen for christmas, we stayed in touch every day but re-affirmed this over christmas, so I stopped pursuing and didn't talk to her til she got back to London, and then when she did we met up and have been in this mostly nice in-between place ever since.
which is a good thing. And it is just a month in. If you get to 3 months and you're 'together' revisit the conversation.
Although when something becomes such a constant its effect wanes over time. I find anyway.
We've been together for 9 years and we're marrying this August.
with my hair.
My parents have set a standard for relationships that's impossible to live up to anyway, or at least that's my excuse if I ever have to see a therapist.
At the start of a new relationship. Too early to call it love but there's definitely potential :)
is pretty much a quarter of my day
