Just make sure you're positioned BEHIND him, you know, to avoid any unwanted surprises in the night.

You want to be gay with him so much, you share the bed with him >:(

I play in various leagues (Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. This season, I will be playing solely for a Saturday team.
Wow, that sounds pretty demanding. I'd think you would preform better now that you can focus all your effort on just the one league.

Well, last season's breakdown went like this:

Sunday - lost every match, except a friendly. I was captain.
Wednesday - finished mid-table, runner up in the senior cup, winners of the invitation plate.
Saturday - Won the league (1st XI); Runner up in the league (2nd XI).

I was scorer for the most part on the Saturday team. I did play two games and took a couple of wickets.

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.
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.

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

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.
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.

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.

How about we all just have a slumber party and talk about stats all night. It doesn't have to be about who wants to be gay with who. XD

Sunday - lost every match, except a friendly. I was captain.

Sounds like you did pretty well, overall. Good luck this year! Out of curiosity, is there any video of you playing on YouTube, or something? I'd be curious to see it.

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.

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.

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.

When life gives you difficult situations, stats on a website isn't really the ideal thing to make you happy. I know I should be happy with the recent milestones but at the end of the day, Newgrounds isn't the most important thing in the world. I'm the 8th person to reach 30k posts and sure, so little have actually reached this but again, my IRL circumstances haven't been great. 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

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.

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

I still hope that your friendship remains. ;)

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

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).

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.

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.

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'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." ;)

After the actions I took, she did realise what she was doing did go too far but unfortunately, she couldn't be with me anymore as a result. It's possible that she felt she gave me too much trouble and I would have been willing to give her a second chance. 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.

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.

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.
Soon, Testament will be playing here.

Not bad, not bad. They're not a high priority on my list to see, though but it's always good to hear big names playing around here.

I know the feeling, man, sorry to hear it. :( Just be grateful for your friends, man -even if some would gladly stick their balls in your mouth. lol

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!

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

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.

I wish NGlog would count medals. (Seeings how it claims to count the same way the 10k list does.)

Anyway, seeings how the Hexalist is the authority on what is/isn't a stat, I'd say you reached 100k...quite some time ago. :P

Good luck. :)

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 remember my girlfriend at the time asking her mom if she could go with me on vacation over the weekend of my birthday. (She had just turned 18 at the time and was still living at home.) Her mom consented initially, thinking it was just a pipe dream we had, or something) but then suddenly started freaking about about it later on when she saw that we were actually serious about it and getting ready to leave. Being a legal adult, she could have went with me, but decided not to upset her mother and stayed home. (Keep in mind we had been dating for a couple years at this point, and her mom knew who I was and seemed to like me well enough.) So anyway, I had to literally unpack all my shit and call the hotel to cancel the reservations at the last minute. Needless to say I was furious about that for quit some time. She kept telling me that we'd get the chance, but we ended up splitting up a few months later. So, yeah, there's a nice, depressing story for ya. :P

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.

It's best not to dwell on these kinds of things, anyway, they tend just to linger around and turn sour in your gut. :P

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.

Good. I don't know if you exercise at all, but I've always found it to be a good outlet for those kind of emotions, and a good confidence-builder, besides.

Yup, you know you've found the right one when she's like your best friend, with teats. :P I remember playing through the Wind Waker with her left hand controlling the joystick and my right hand controlling all the buttons. (Hmm, now that I think back on that; what does that say about who was in control of that relationship?) lmao

Well there you have it.

That's definitely the right attitude to have. Just sitting around idly and dwelling on it is something you want to avoid.

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.

This was actually my attitude for most of 2012 so let's get back on track with that!

Well put. I've always been pretty terrible about meeting new people, so all the girls I've ever met were introduced to me, or coworkers, most of which are already in relationships, of course. (I actually lost a good, long-time friend when a girl got between us, but that's a different story.) Anyway, find something you enjoy doing, and try to find some like-minded people. (I would imagine the internet could be a helpful tool in this pursuit.) Though it's easier said than done, as it's something I'm going to be trying to work on myself here this summer. Lets see how that goes. :\

Careful guys, this is a three-parter here.

So about this working trial. A little complication occurred on the way. It wasn't anything to do with me or the place I was meant to work for, one of my references is ill right now so they need to find someone else within the same business to take over. Since they couldn't get back soon enough, they are unable to put me on work trial until otherwise and they put someone else in instead. It may not definitely work out for whoever they've put on instead so there's always a chance to be employed by them or there'll be other opportunities from the agency to offer to me.

I was able to catch up on some old friends today so that took my mind off things, even though I did let them know of recent events. That said, they were able to amuse me so I'm still enjoying myself. While I have been saying a lot in these posts, since the start of the writeups I've only felt really down once or twice throughout.

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.

On the bus journey to the school and back (only to see where it was), I did feel like my mind was asleep while I was on it. However, I can't let it be too sleepy, otherwise I'll miss my stop. I wasn't even sure which stop I needed to get off at and it turned out the one I thought I should get off at is the right one providing I do work at that school.

After the actions I took, she did realise what she was doing did go too far but unfortunately, she couldn't be with me anymore as a result. It's possible that she felt she gave me too much trouble and I would have been willing to give her a second chance. 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 can't say she's had an easy life because she established her past well enough, unlike most things that are going on with her. She tends to take a lot of things personally from what I gathered here and there and if she was the one that was starting mischief and then gets herself hurt in the process, she'll put the blame on others. Meeting some of her friends for that one time easily showed me that.

As for cutting myself or any form of self-harm/suicide, it's something I don't think I could do. Even if I'm in the worst state of my life, it would probably still be hard for me to just go ahead and kill myself. I could have a gun, a knife or a rope that would be the way to end my life but chances are I'd be too afraid to just accept the pain. Not sure whether I find myself to be a pussy for thinking that way or not but this can be a touchy subject. I'm hoping she does find a way out of the mess she put herself in and stays away from that troubled past.

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.

I know one that just left someone for another girl immediately. I'll admit the relationship for that one was a weird one but it wasn't a good way to handle things. Like I said a few times here, I don't know as many girls as I should do so the odds of even finding someone again really soon is highly unlikely. At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.

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'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.

She's fond of me enough to have a photo on her wallpaper with both of us on (including other people) so it's not like seeing my face is filling her heart with rage. That said, letting herself recharging her batteries should give her a good feeling for when she's back with friends that we both know. I'm only going to feel bitter at her if she goes against her own words to me quickly after the break up which would further put a dent on trust and that's not something either of us should risk. If we can remain friends, it would be a step up from her other two ex boyfriends who she no longer even speaks to so that's something to do to give her more confidence in life.

Not bad, not bad. They're not a high priority on my list to see, though but it's always good to hear big names playing around here.
Iron Maiden will be playing here. ;)

Lucky, they're only playing in Download. I'd much rather have their own big venues than festivals. I suppose my next chance will be whenever they record their next album and I think it'll be another two years until we hear another Maiden album and they say they only see themselves writing another record or two before they call it a day.

I was meant to comment on this before. Although I mentioned 140,000 total points the other day, I've already reached that a while back considering the inclusion of medals. Maybe we can have a discussion with byteslinger and see if medals can be counted for the combined total. At this point I find it to be acceptable so we should throw some thoughts around in the NG Log thread or something.

I can easily look to myself and think at least not so much went down the drain as it could have. The most that we did with each other during the relationship was being together in one city which was the central point between the two of us. The only other thing was hanging out in one place in Liverpool and then a pub crawl, the latter being the downhill point. It's unfortunate that the city where we had our dates will look painful to look at when I'm next there but I can't avoid these places forever, particularly when they're so local. I may find myself in that said city next month so I can tackle any fears/hurtful emotions I have when going through there sooner than later.

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.
It's best not to dwell on these kinds of things, anyway, they tend just to linger around and turn sour in your gut. :P

That's why I'm wanting to get them out sooner than later. If my heart feels minimally hurt on a daily basis then I'm on the right track.

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.
For the first time, ever? Now that's saying something. ;)

Hahahaha, if only. What I obviously meant was that it's been a long time since we last needed multi posts for quotes. It was much easier when gfox was around but... you know. I've said to him myself during a recent PM that I no longer put pressure on him to start posting here again. I see him less and less for depositing and even on Steam so that's saying something. I last gave him a double PM to reply to everything and next time it might go across three or four messages, haha.

Good. I don't know if you exercise at all, but I've always found it to be a good outlet for those kind of emotions, and a good confidence-builder, besides.

Not the first time I've heard that lately. Exercising is something that I've put on my new years resolution and while it might be a generic one, it's one that would do a lot of good for me. Now if only I knew which friends go to the gym on a regular basis. I would have to make it somewhere that isn't over the water and thankfully I do have friends on this side so who knows. As a matter of fact, I was meant to be seeing if a friend of mine is still taking weekly trips to the swimming baths with his brother but I haven't heard anything about that since the start of the year. Mind you, I'm not fond of the local swimming baths with it being Birkenhead and all but it's always worth giving it a shot if I'm with someone I know.

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.

Yup, you know you've found the right one when she's like your best friend, with teats. :P I remember playing through the Wind Waker with her left hand controlling the joystick and my right hand controlling all the buttons. (Hmm, now that I think back on that; what does that say about who was in control of that relationship?) lmao

And a best friend would not hide away their troubles if they are in need of help and they broadcast all sorts of shit on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. They would be willing to listen out on what their partner says and not just throw things right back at them. If you try and make others feel better, you should take for granted that there are those who will do the same for you in return Those problems are why she didn't seem like a best friend to me in the end. I do feel a love partner should also be like their best friend in the sense that they would talk about common interests very often and be there to help each other.

Personally I don't want to think I have a single best friend as I have quite a diverse lifestyle. I'll hang out with people who play role-playing board games and card games (*cough*nerds*cough* XD), I'll be with those who I know from a local rock bar that I go to on occasions, I'm willing to see old friends going all the way back to secondary school, I have my rare chances to meet those from Newgrounds and then I have some, uhhhh, furries. Some of them may mix and match just fine but having something like furries going to said rock bar would probably cause a riot. :P

HOWEVER, if there is someone who I can deem as a best friend, it's the one who's been seeing live shows with me on various occasions. Not to put everyone else down but it is hard to top someone who's been willing to see live shows with me because we both liked the band(s) we saw. It doesn't stop at music, though as we also have common interests in video games and TV, particularly with Red Dwarf and Doctor Who but I have a shit ton to watch before I'm even considered a hardcore fan of the latter.

As far as relationships go, I cannot and should not expect 100% common interests between the two. While me and her weren't 100% for sure, there were common interests as well, particularly with heavy metal and that was something that could have expanded if things had worked out better. We were wanting to see live shows together but... that's another thing that just won't happen now. At least she had better interests than the previous one who I tried to go out with. Apart from one thing, we had nothing in common whatsoever. I never want to be too picky with what a girl likes/doesn't like as I would only find myself impossible to please. There are reasonable measures, though as if there was one girl who could not stand heavy metal at all, then clearly it wouldn't work out all that well. I just said to myself that a relationship should at least show we can enjoy ourselves with our activities and if we weren't going to have fun, then it's not going to work out.

I have been hit and miss with people. From 2012's experiences, I've met a few people in Chester, one of them being a dragon fanatic like I am, and since I've seen them I've had some games on TF2 with them and for a game that you can play so often, that's always good for us all. However, for a bad experience with an attempt to meet friends of friends, the new year celebration just went past is a great example of that. One guy and his girlfriend were hostile to us and we were not fond of each other because of conflicting interests. Plus, he felt like he had authority over the party when it wasn't even his own fucking place. He did have that "NO FUN ALLOWED" stigma to him.

It's a shame where I meet some of people haven't resulted in finding as many girls as I should have but I can always keep trying to look around. It's either I give up and not find anyone at all or I can look anywhere and meet anyone new that I think I can get along with. So yeah, meeting new people is always a gamble. You never know who you'll meet and while some of them will be rotten apples, there's always diamonds in the rough so it's always worth exploring.

I would imagine the internet could be a helpful tool in this pursuit.

It SHOULD be a helpful tool but sadly there's huge downfalls for using the internet to find a possible love partner. There's always those jackasses who'll pretend who they're not. Newgrounds is certainly not a good place to try and find someone you'll love. While there have been some successful relationships where both met on this site, that's really once in a blue moon and this site isn't really a source for finding someone. Maybe you can hang out at meets and get along with a lot of new people but to seek for a relationship, it's not the most ideal place.

I'll admit that the only forum I even post on nowadays is the NG BBS and even that's showing a decline of activity. Probably not so good on me when the only other forms of communication on the internet for me is the main social networks. Maybe I can wander around on the internet and see which places can interest me. It would be nice if I could rekindle my interest in the Metal-Archives forums. I can talk about metal a lot so why did I end up slipping away from there? There's a lot to consider so I'll tackle things one at a time.

The NG sword isn't a traditional one so it doesn't count.

On the bus journey to the school and back (only to see where it was), I did feel like my mind was asleep while I was on it. However, I can't let it be too sleepy, otherwise I'll miss my stop. I wasn't even sure which stop I needed to get off at and it turned out the one I thought I should get off at is the right one providing I do work at that school.

After a while your body just "knows" where to get off and you'll wake up from your doze automatically.

At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.

Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be "fair" to the other person if you just use her to get your mind off of your previous relationship.

Lucky, they're only playing in Download. I'd much rather have their own big venues than festivals. I suppose my next chance will be whenever they record their next album and I think it'll be another two years until we hear another Maiden album and they say they only see themselves writing another record or two before they call it a day.

I could have seen them at the Wacken Open Air. But since this festival turned into one huge pile of dogshit I rather not spent any more money on that... not even for Maiden!

I've been speaking to her yesterday. Although the text she sent me originally went to the wrong person, we were talking a bit and things are still fine with her as far as friendship goes. To be honest, while she's very difficult to understand on the inside, I'm at least happy for her to have taken the break up much better than the previous ones. There's been no Facebook meltdowns or anything and she still thinks of me a lot. As a matter of fact, speaking to her yesterday was the most fun I had with her in a few weeks.

Listening to:

True that. Rarely I miss a stop on my road when getting back home because my body is programmed too well when to get off.

At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.
Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be "fair" to the other person if you just use her to get your mind off of your previous relationship.

And that's what kinda happened with her when she was with me considering how little time she gave herself between break ups and another relationship. She did admit that she still hadn't got over the last relationship so how she feels about the break up with me is not entirely clear but surely it's better handled this time.

That's the sad thing. It seems most of these festivals seem good at first but then they turn to shit after a while. This is why I much prefer standalone shows and never festivals.

The Pentalist from before we had Art Reviews...

That's true, I had totally forgotten about Art reviews. (Probably because I don't have any.) ^^;

Yeah, it's a bit complicated with total stats, so I still rely on NGLogs to count it for me.

I suppose it would be, now that I consider the Art reviews. It'd just be your NGlog total + medals + Art reviews = total stats then? Hopefully byteslinger can get it updated at some point.

Well this sucks, seriously. When I think that I moved together with my gf after about 6 months... :P
Ok, we already where 23 and 22 respectively, and my mom more or less kicked me out (sounds more serious than it was ;) )

We were a few years younger -at that awkward time right after graduating high school. I think that's a big part of the reason why things didn't end up working out... Anyway, so did you end up getting married shortly after moving in together, or was it more recent?

Although I mentioned 140,000 total points the other day, I've already reached that a while back considering the inclusion of medals. Maybe we can have a discussion with byteslinger and see if medals can be counted for the combined total. At this point I find it to be acceptable so we should throw some thoughts around in the NG Log thread or something.

That would be nice, though it's not a huge deal for me to do some quick addition to find out my real total. I do hope she is able to get it done eventually, though, seeings how NGlog is already keeping track of user's medals/points.

That's why I'm wanting to get them out sooner than later. If my heart feels minimally hurt on a daily basis then I'm on the right track.

The memory will lose it's sting in time. Hopefully it wont haunt you for too long, seeing as you two weren't together over the long haul. I suppose you might be grateful for that, in retrospect.

Hahahaha, if only. What I obviously meant was that it's been a long time since we last needed multi posts for quotes. It was much easier when gfox was around but... you know. I've said to him myself during a recent PM that I no longer put pressure on him to start posting here again. I see him less and less for depositing and even on Steam so that's saying something. I last gave him a double PM to reply to everything and next time it might go across three or four messages, haha.

Yeah, I somehow didn't think it really was. :P It really is a damn shame gfox isn't around anymore, as we could really use someone like him around here to thicken up the conversation a bit. (Hell, even Coop's presence is beginning to be felt less and less around this thread. And if he stops posting congrats lists, I'm going to have to resort to congratsing myself. ;_;) Anyway, at least you are still in contact with him, and even on NG no less! Make sure you tell him Metal says hi and that he's updating your old Pentalist next time you talk to him. (He better remember me!) :P

Not the first time I've heard that lately. Exercising is something that I've put on my new years resolution and while it might be a generic one, it's one that would do a lot of good for me. Now if only I knew which friends go to the gym on a regular basis. I would have to make it somewhere that isn't over the water and thankfully I do have friends on this side so who knows. As a matter of fact, I was meant to be seeing if a friend of mine is still taking weekly trips to the swimming baths with his brother but I haven't heard anything about that since the start of the year. Mind you, I'm not fond of the local swimming baths with it being Birkenhead and all but it's always worth giving it a shot if I'm with someone I know.

I've been exercising now for almost a year and weight training for the last few months. I'd say it's made me a bit more outgoing, not to mention increased my energy substantially. I only wish I had access to a pool, as swimming is arguably the best total-body exercising you can do.
Anyway, I would recommend going for a swim as often as possible, it'll be good for both your physical and mental states.

And a best friend would not hide away their troubles if they are in need of help and they broadcast all sorts of shit on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. They would be willing to listen out on what their partner says and not just throw things right back at them. If you try and make others feel better, you should take for granted that there are those who will do the same for you in return Those problems are why she didn't seem like a best friend to me in the end. I do feel a love partner should also be like their best friend in the sense that they would talk about common interests very often and be there to help each other.

I could see how frustrating that would be; her using social media as an outlet to problems that she should be discussing with you, in private. It seems like she wasn't taking things very seriously, in terms of trying to work through the issues she was having, that or just very confused.

Personally I don't want to think I have a single best friend as I have quite a diverse lifestyle. I'll hang out with people who play role-playing board games and card games (*cough*nerds*cough* XD), I'll be with those who I know from a local rock bar that I go to on occasions, I'm willing to see old friends going all the way back to secondary school, I have my rare chances to meet those from Newgrounds and then I have some, uhhhh, furries. Some of them may mix and match just fine but having something like furries going to said rock bar would probably cause a riot. :P

I can kind of relate to that. I highschool I hung out with a group of friends, some of which I did nerdy stuff with, others I played/talked sports and others music. But we were all friends with each other and hung out together as a group, nonetheless. (Probably because most of us went all the way back to grade school, before many of our interests developed.) And yeah, about the furries -you should keep them... quarantined; it might be best for everyone that way. ;P

HOWEVER, if there is someone who I can deem as a best friend, it's the one who's been seeing live shows with me on various occasions. Not to put everyone else down but it is hard to top someone who's been willing to see live shows with me because we both liked the band(s) we saw. It doesn't stop at music, though as we also have common interests in video games and TV, particularly with Red Dwarf and Doctor Who but I have a shit ton to watch before I'm even considered a hardcore fan of the latter.

To me a "best friend" is just the person who you feel most comfortable around/have the most in common with. Like if you were to go on a road trip for a week and you could only pick one friend, who would it be? :P While I hung out with a lot people in school, there was that one guy who was my best friend. Interestingly enough, we were both giant nerds, both of us being hardcore into DBZ and Pokemon (especially the former). We both drew DBZ fanart and played the card games and shit. (Oh, and not to mention were were both huge Nintendo fanboys.) Lots of good memories there, anyway. :)

As far as relationships go, I cannot and should not expect 100% common interests between the two.

That girl I was speaking of before and I were pretty damn close; one reason why I truly regretted that loss. :( Anyway, I'd think that over time you would start to adopt some of each other's interests, to some extent.

I was referring more to finding social groups, like people who get together to go hiking, for example. Probably should have clarified that a little more.

Newgrounds is certainly not a good place to try and find someone you'll love.

Yeah, I wouldn't think NG would be all that great for finding a girl, for many reasons. 1. The guy/girl ratio is like 100:1. 2. Most are probably going to be under 18 3. Any girls on the BBS are going to be constantly harassed/pestered by horny teenage boys and probably not be interested in getting to know anyone from NG in that way. (though some seem to enjoy that kind of attention.) Anything else? Well, most people in the General Forum are freaking queer as springtime, if that counts. lol

While there have been some successful relationships where both met on this site, that's really once in a blue moon and this site isn't really a source for finding someone.

There's two couples that met here, right? I always thought that a really neat story.

Maybe you can hang out at meets and get along with a lot of new people but to seek for a relationship, it's not the most ideal place.

I'm pretty sure Gagsy loves you...Or is it only your plushies she's after? :x

I'll admit that the only forum I even post on nowadays is the NG BBS and even that's showing a decline of activity.

But you're never allowed to leave, you understand that, right? :P
