Been gone for 3 days (lost the net in other words) so I didn't get to say this 2 days ago, but I reached Level 21 finally. I like my bone axe, but the one that was on fire looked cooler.

Since I've never been to college (not my fault, we just don't have something that is comparable to a college ;) ) I cannot say which one is easier. I only know that I enjoyed going to university much more than I enjoyed going to school. But with all this Bachelor and Master crap going on here, I don't know if this still is true. I was lucky I still was able to get a dimploma and not some crappy "Bachelor degree" or "Master degree".

Well don't think she's more biased than others just because she likes a certain dragon.
But way more biased when it comes to that certain dragon.
Well, she's giving the dragon a break for now.

But I still am sure she's way more biased than I am. :P

Doesn't surprise me. There's a medieval festival in Tewkesbury and the hotel expenses can be extreme at that time and to think when I went there two weeks ago it was only for a tenner to stay for the night!

But Munich is always quite expensive. ^^
Even the rents for a flat are very high and among the most expensive you can find anywhere in Germany. Rents in Hamburg aren't exactly cheap either, but I live at the very edge of town. A few meters from here is the federal state border, heh. Rents here are moderate compared to rents in the heart of the city.

Slight improvement with things on my end. I'm still talking to her a lot and last night I have managed to gone without the talk of relationship or saying that I love her or anything like that. Our conversation felt smooth and although I can't know every single thing that goes on in her daily life, I'm sure that made her feel better in one way. Roll on Saturday for the fancy dress birthday party. Considering what she's set me up to go as for the party, she better have a smile on her face! :)

I was lucky I still was able to get a dimploma and not some crappy "Bachelor degree" or "Master degree".

You see, I never went to uni and I don't think I will now. I'm in an ugly position where if I do go back to full-time education, the dole will be gone and I will not even have a damn penny left on me. That and it's a matter of starting college again and I had enough hell from that. Then again, I've been having enough hell from employers but either way it's a lose-lose situation and at least one of them is allowing me to have a benefit. It's a shit way of handling things but that's how it is. My girlfriend has a Saturday part-time job but doesn't even get a fraction of what I earn on a monthly basis.

Keep in mind that I do give my parents a regular payment so it's not all for me. It would be nice if it was but at least that money I do give them goes towards food and drink as well as some other bits and bobs so it's helping us out. They were actually willing to cut the monthly payment I owe them due to seeing my girlfriend but that was just around the same time we agreed on a break. Funny timing that. :P

Well, she's giving the dragon a break for now.
But I still am sure she's way more biased than I am. :P

Ah but for now she's seeing me as a friend. That surely makes her less biased.

A few meters from here is the federal state border, heh. Rents here are moderate compared to rents in the heart of the city.

We'll find a place to go to in Germany eventually. Maybe have it coincide with a live show as Germany gets shit tons of things happening. Again, just going to Germany, it's all about getting that money first. I may have a manageable budget to keep my bank account growing but most of that money I'm able to save is for emergency cases. For example, if I did truly lose my iPod last month I would have had to shell out some of that money just for a replacement. It wouldn't have been pleasant but I wouldn't be bankrupt from it.

More than likely given that seems to have been a small bug on the site for awhile now. Should hopefully be getting back to reviewing soon seeing as I feel much more motivated.

Timing is everything - I'm still batting with my old bat and last night, I was hitting drives more crisply than ever before. Hopefully, I will be able to get some mileage out of these shots I've learned this winter.
Do you play in a league, or just with friends?

I play in various leagues (Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. This season, I will be playing solely for a Saturday team.

I've been able to see her today. Although things may be getting more and more intense right now, we were able to enjoy seeing each other. Plenty of hugs were given so we're still close to each other. I've spoken to a few friends today and they feel that I have done what I can to help her out but perhaps I shouldn't pressure myself to respond to her to every little thing she says on Twitter, Facebook, etc. However, for now it's a matter of giving her space and give her time to recover which I have agreed to do starting from earlier this week.

Try not to rush in. You can seem over the top and clingy if you do.

I'm starting a full-time and full payment job tomorrow. The company I worked at before that never made a job offer, even though they badly need more employees. But I waited since December, I even spoke to the management about it, but all I heard was "no decision yet". So fuck them, seriously. I worked FULL TIME for 500 Euros pre-tax per month and they cannot even tell me if that position is vacant or not? I mean, even a "No, sorry" would've been helpful...

Well, she's giving the dragon a break for now.

It does, but she knows you in person, I don't.

Is he known for being a badass? Sorry I know nothing about actors/voice actors. (Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit were like the only movies that I've watched in the last 10 years or so.)

Not sure if he's particularly badass. He does usually play bad guys though. He's currently starring in the BBC's Sherlock (in which I like him a lot) and he'll be in the next Star Trek film.

Well that's the end of that. Friday was really uneasy with my girlfriend after what she was putting on Tumblr but the party last Saturday at least had things went accordingly. However, Sunday was when enough was enough. After one text telling me that she was cutting herself, I had no choice but to contact her parents about what she was doing. I knew fully aware of the consequences that would have come from this and I was right knowing that the relationship was put to an end right there. While she still wants to be friends with me, it's not going to be a piece of cake to approach each other. Trust between us has been damaged as a result but it was either this or fuck knows how much worse she would have been if I left her on her own. Nothing I said would have got to her, nothing from her friends would have got to her so it was all down to her parents.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time for the break up to have happened. I've not been happy over the last three weeks and as time went on things only got worse and worse for her. I tried giving her a break hoping that it would help her recover from things but it didn't seem to make a difference. As much as I tried to face the difficulties of a relationship, there's only so much that I can take from it. A relationship is meant to make me happy and having her not seeing me on dates for a few weeks whilst she was getting worse on her end was not making things easy to deal with and what she told me last night was the last straw. I know there are long distance relationships but the difference here is that we were within close-ish distances but there were no plans for further dates to see each other out. In a long distance relationship you'd be looking up at when would be the next time to see each other.

For now, it's back to single life for me and I didn't want to see it return ever again but this is what I'm stuck with and will have to deal with. I can't say for sure when I'll be in a relationship again but if it took this long in my life to get a girlfriend, chances are it will be a while (I'll say years) before I find someone else so the one plus side is that I can take it easy on myself to get over from recent events. The odds of another girl asking me out over the next week or two is so slim that it would feel like winning the lottery if that actually happened. Sometime I will make the effort again to try and find someone but now is too soon. If there's the possibility that she wants to be with me again, I'm not entirely sure about second chances so we'd have to talk things over first. For now she's best staying off relatonships until she can make a complete turnaround on her life.

Try not to rush in. You can seem over the top and clingy if you do.

Well I tried to give her time but nothing was made any easier for us.

I've got to still be here for that to happen. I'm hoping that I can maintain my presence, even as limited as it currently is :(

It's hard to see where I'll be going over the next two years so getting to level 60 shouldn't be an issue. However, maintaining activity for everything on the site is a different matter. I can do everything as normal for the time being but somewhere down the road, it's likely that you'll see less of me but again, that's all a matter of what goes in my life.

I'm starting a full-time and full payment job tomorrow. The company I worked at before that never made a job offer, even though they badly need more employees. But I waited since December, I even spoke to the management about it, but all I heard was "no decision yet". So fuck them, seriously. I worked FULL TIME for 500 Euros pre-tax per month and they cannot even tell me if that position is vacant or not? I mean, even a "No, sorry" would've been helpful...

That's the thing. These employers are so unreliable with communications. They might have many to speak to but they should at least make an attempt to speak to them all if they put them through enough trouble to go somewhere just to see them.

Ah but for now she's seeing me as a friend. That surely makes her less biased.
It does, but she knows you in person, I don't.

Now she isn't biased at all. :P

We'll find a place to go to in Germany eventually. Maybe have it coincide with a live show as Germany gets shit tons of things happening.
Well, then you have to come to Hamburg. We get a lot of live shows here. The Markthalle was kind of my second home about a decade back, haha.

Yeah, I keep hearing of a lot of live shows in Hamburg. That's why it's one place to consider going if I were to go on holiday to Germany.

That's what I was getting at; if he was known for playing the bad guy. I'll be looking forward to hearing him as Smaug, anyway. :)

I still think he's a bit of an odd choice for the voice Smaug though, since his voice isn't that deep or anything (which is what you would expect a dragon to sound like).

I haven't been following your posts concerning your relationship that closely, but it sounds messed up :( I can imagine that you're pretty broken up after your first relationship ends that way.

All I can say is take all the time you need to get through it and try not to let it hurt your future relationships.

Coop is about the only likely other candidate to reach that anywhere within the next few years.

I'm sorry to hear that. But I think you did the right thing. Cutting isn't something that should be taken lightly. It is (or can turn into) a serious disorder. Also, about yourself finding another girlfriend, Homer said it best: "You went from sitting on the sidelines to getting in the game! Sometime, when you least expect it, you'll realize that someone loved you. And that means that someone can love you again! And that'll make you smile." ;)

That's the thing. These employers are so unreliable with communications. They might have many to speak to but they should at least make an attempt to speak to them all if they put them through enough trouble to go somewhere just to see them.

I worked there already as some kind of trainee. My colleagues didn't understand why I never got a job offer and even my line manager couldn't believe it.

Ah but for now she's seeing me as a friend. That surely makes her less biased.

I know the feeling, man, sorry to hear it. :( All I can say is that though things may be rough right now, you just gotta let time take its course. Try to put this behind you and go have fun with your friends. Hell, I had dated my first gf for 2 years and had all these great plans for the future, when suddenly things changed and I was left wondering what the hell happened... I had just moved/graduated from high school at the time and was in a strange place and felt and most of m my friends had moved away or gone to school. It was all just pretty damn bad timing. Just be grateful for your friends, man -even if some would gladly stick their balls in your mouth. lol

After one text telling me that she was cutting herself, I had no choice but to contact her parents about what she was doing.

You did the right thing there. Maybe in time she'll come to realize you told her parents because you cared about what happened to her.

I knew fully aware of the consequences that would have come from this and I was right knowing that the relationship was put to an end right there. While she still wants to be friends with me, it's not going to be a piece of cake to approach each other.

I was told the same BS about "staying friends". The whole thing is just really awkward (especially when the break-up's not mutual) and she really didn't have any real intention of staying friends with me, anyway. Maybe your experience will turn out to be different -I hope it does.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time for the break up to have happened.

It was your first relationship, and first relationships are a learning experience for 99% of us. Just try to remember that. :P

The odds of another girl asking me out over the next week or two is so slim that it would feel like winning the lottery if that actually happened.

Oh, I know that feeling all too well. Go out with friends and have a good time. I'm sure you'll meet or be introduced to somebody new eventually -just gotta keep putting yourself out there! :)

I did hang on but the ride ended up crashing. :P

Well damn! It seems life does not want to give me a break right now. Can't spend much time dwelling on the break up since either Thursday or Friday, I'm put on work trial for a school in Liverpool. Although it's not the central area, I've checked bus times to get there and it's possible to be there on time for 8 in the morning. At least an hour journey to get there is quite a bit but it's either I take this or wait endlessly for another job opportunity. Better go ahead with this now while I have the chance.

That said, I'm still a bit down about the break up but I've been talking to some people and looking back at things, more and more it seems that it was for the better but on the other hand, it does hurt to feel how much we could have done together and what we planned to do in the near-future and now it's all gone out the window. I'd try and get the worst feelings out of the system right now but life insists I push forward as opposed to dwelling on past misfortunes.

Oh, and for the first time my replies have to be separated into two posts. Shame it's not for the happiest reasons but at least it's getting us all talking.

No-one expects it to be easy for me, especially what I had to go through.

All I can say is take all the time you need to get through it and try not to let it hurt your future relationships.

I imagine by the time I find someone else, I'll have put this all behind me. The dud of a relationship I had back in 2009 doesn't mean anything to me now so I'm no longer hurt by it. However, with this one being close to the love partner than I ever did before, I do need more time to get over things.

As a result of getting 30k posts, though, I now have FOUR stats with 30k+ and I'm the first of that kind to do that. It'll be ages before you even see anyone else with four 30k stats
Coop is about the only likely other candidate to reach that anywhere within the next few years.

And that's whenever he even reaches 30k posts. Sorry Coop but that is a looooooooooong way off for you now. I'm not even sure if he can even reach it because of how things have been going for him. If it's not going to be him, then I think Nijsse has potential if he continues to get blams and saves. While he's only roughly halfway to 30k medals, it's something that can easily grow to that many sometime in the future. Mind you, we still only have three 2x20k'ers and I broke that barrier back in 2009. XwaynecoltX and Coop are the only other two that have attainted that while a few are looking to be close to getting there except for the fact that blam milestones take an eternity now.

I think one of the problems was how soon it was for her to be with me after her previous break up. Perhaps she was pushed by a few too much to find someone else and she wasn't given enough time on her own. Initially I just wanted to see her in Liverpool as friends to try and give her company. She knew a few to see as well but when it came to seeing her and tweeting to her a lot, it was then our feelings to each other grew. Things were all good for the first three weeks but then she changed and it never got back to how it was before.

Now she isn't biased at all. :P
I still hope that your friendship remains. ;)

It'll be hard to see her the way I did before but maybe this is still doable. As long as she does take her time on things and do what is best for her, I can't see many reasons as to why we shouldn't be friends at this time. I'll just have to see how she is whenever I do see in person her again. Maybe when she is feeling down it might be easier to make her feel better.

You know what, I was able to enjoy myself a lot with them last night online so I wasn't entirely depressed all of yesterday.

After one text telling me that she was cutting herself, I had no choice but to contact her parents about what she was doing.
You did the right thing there. Maybe in time she'll come to realize you told her parents because you cared about what happened to her.

I think she understands now. I'm hoping her parents will get back to me and give me a quick update on how she is. We may not get back together as a couple but I did what had to be done.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time for the break up to have happened.
It was your first relationship, and first relationships are a learning experience for 99% of us. Just try to remember that. :P

I know for next time whenever something just isn't right, maybe a bit of time on their own will help but if they persist on not seeing me on dates when we're meant to be together, I'll have to speak up for myself. For a relationship, I want to be happy with a girl and do all sorts of things between the two of us whether it be walking around one city, watching a movie together, going to live shows, taking adventures, etc. You know, what a couple should actually be doing. Common sense surely tells you that the two should be there for each other in the most difficult of times but that wasn't happening for me in the end. She was just distancing herself away from me more and more.

The odds of another girl asking me out over the next week or two is so slim that it would feel like winning the lottery if that actually happened.
Oh, I know that feeling all too well. Go out with friends and have a good time. I'm sure you'll meet or be introduced to somebody new eventually -just gotta keep putting yourself out there! :)

Well there you have it. Since I am more free now, what I'm gonna do is stretch myself out some more. If I hear of a pub crawl with my friends, I'll go for it. Is there a friend's birthday party over the water? Do whatever it takes to stay for the whole of the event. While some of those things might be difficult to do considering transport limitations after midnight, I should at least make more of an effort to have fun but at the same time consider my monthly income. I should see if I can get a taxi back or if it's possible to crash at someone's place but the latter is only if one can offer me somewhere to sleep on, even if it's a kitchen floor in a student apartment.

There's loads to do and I'll attempt to take up all these opportunities. I'll even see if there are any trips I can take around the north west for anything or see what other regions of England can offer for me providing I can get help from friends to split on hotel and travel expenses. I did that with someone to go to Sheffield last September and it was an enjoyable time.

I did hang on but the ride ended up crashing. :P
Happens to the best of us. ;)

Touche. I know I said to not dwell on it too much, especially when I have something big to look forward to shortly but it helps to look back and know what went wrong. As you said just before, it's a matter of taking it from experience. At least now I can set some real standards on what I want from a girl and feel whether she is right for me or not. Unfortunately, my main issue all this time is that I don't know as many girls as I should and those that I do know are already taken. It's both that I didn't try asking them out or when I first met them they were already with someone. This is why I feel I should spread my wings some more (like a dragon damn well should, hahaha) and meet new people. Who knows who I could end up meeting by doing this? This was actually my attitude for most of 2012 so let's get back on track with that!

One hour journey means one extra hour of sleep while traveling to work, lol. I enjoy the extra nap time I can get in the morning and/or in the evening, when going back home.

Yeah, more Lounging! It's just what we need in here.

However, she did say relationships were something that only put pressure on her mind so I think it's about time she stayed on her own for a good while.

From what I know, it's the pressure that can trigger the urge to cut yourself. May it be pressure because you are bullied at school or at work, or that your life is just very difficult right now. I'm just glad I have some sort of "natural barrier": I cannot see my own blood, it makes me feel sick, heh.

I think one of the problems was how soon it was for her to be with me after her previous break up.

I heard that one as well from a friend when I still was going to school. She had a new boyfriend just three weeks after her break up with the previous boyfriend. It didn't last very long and she said that it was just a big mistake on her end. She needed more time to get over her previous break up.

Now she isn't biased at all. :P

As long as she does take her time on things and do what is best for her, I can't see many reasons as to why we shouldn't be friends at this time. I'll just have to see how she is whenever I do see in person her again. Maybe when she is feeling down it might be easier to make her feel better.

You'll just have to wait and see. If it doesn't feel right, you can always avoid personal contact. But I think you should at least try it out to meet her again as a friend.

Iron Maiden will be playing here. ;)
But it's in the "O2 Arena" or whatever it is called. "Overpriced shithole" it's what they should really call it. But hey, I've never seen Maiden live before, so I have to take that chance.

Also, Testament are playing in the "Docks". Usually, that's a nightclub where they play Hip Hop and R'n'B mostly. But for whatever reason, they also have some interesting live shows from time to time. But sometimes the live shows have to be finished before 8pm, so they can open their night club again, lol.
