So, I have a bit of a situation on my hands here.
Hey everyone, I was hoping to get some help/advice. [snip]
Hey there, I have a story I'd like to share but it is kind of long. Is that okay?
I have a friend who is 5 years younger than me (she is 16), and we have been best friends for over 7 years. I have grown to care for her very, very deeply. Sometimes, I find myself thinking of being in a relationship one day with her if life so wills it. No matter what, I am simply happy to share in her life and hope to make it the best life for her I can (without sacrificing my own integrity or being overly dependent of course).
I simply want to show her in as many ways as I can that she is loved and cared for and worth fighting for, not because I like her, but because she deserves it in my eyes and because it is what I would do for anyone I am friends with.
Even when I am doing things right and living in the moment and letting time pass, it can be difficult though. It is difficult not to think about "what-ifs" no matter how much self-love you have, especially when I have never had romantic love reciprocated (though I know I don't need a relationship to make me happy and I know that I don't need another to complete me, but simply should be open to someone who compliments my life who will share in my completeness and me in theirs)
Even though if my friend did like me now (hypothetically), I'd want to wait awhile before seriously considering a relationship because I'd want our maturity levels to balance out, I'd want things with her family to get better (she is having some problems at home because of her dad even though their family does like me and I have known them for years) and also because in time, 5 years won't be as much of a difference and she will have a clearer vision of who she is and what she is looking for in this world (note that the age of consent where I live is 16 so there'd be no legal issues, but I would not be in a relationship for that anyways and would want to take things slowly and build that trust naturally).
No matter what happens at the end of the day, I just want her to be happy and to live a fulfilling life. My happiness doesn't hinge upon her and I know love is not something that is won or earned, but is willingly given and grown between two people and whether it be with each other or another, I hope we both find a love worth waiting for and the contentment and fulfillment in life we deserve. (I am 21 btw)
It's just hard at times to keep reminding myself of this. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by emotions, both positive and negative, and simply am so grateful for sharing my time with another whose presence is a once in a lifetime kind of thing to me.
holy crap, long time no see
while you were gone i got a username change, then i resigned from modding, then i came out of retirement (and the closet, but that was long before)
dude snowman whoa
do you remember me
i remember you
Only positive thing of note is the closing of the drug thread.
but yeah thanks dudes, even you snowman. I just can't believe how well she fits me. She's like...a female version of me, it's ridiculous.
So SFSU's pretty cool. Suprised at how much free time I have.
I met a girl. An amazing one. One who is finally, truly on my level.
Mate you just described all there is to do in MC and then asked if there was more.
WHYYYYYYYYYYY are guys so cheesy? This is the second time after meeting a guy (me looking to only be friends and them looking for more) do they ask me via text message to send them a picture of me for their "contact picture". The ****? Do they think I'm stupid? I'm pretty sure thats not why you want a picture of me. And then they say "Oh I was just looking to be friends" THEN WHY THE **** DID YOU ASK IF I HAD A BOYFRIEND!? and tell me I'm pretty and all this other stuff. Please tell me, what the ****.
So, something that's always confused me are the words dating and going out as well as boyfriend and girlfriend. I've spent a lot of time trying to figure this out and talking to people as well as reading things (like this Pit discussion thread) and no where do people's answers really line up. Back in high school, it seemed almost an unspoken given that you didn't go on dates, you'd ask someone out and be in a relationship even though some people I spoke to begged to differ (some agreed). It seemed the actual process of testing the waters with dating was reserved for adults. But, I've found that's not strictly true, you see the same process or "skip-the-dates" happen where people go straight into relationships. I find it confusing because people/places will say to do one or the other. To the best of my knowledge it seems like it's really dependent on whoever actually would go on a date or be going out; whatever the two of them "agree" on (I put agree in quotes because often times people don't have a prolonged discourse on this, someone just asks the other out on a date or to be their Significant other). What do you guys think?
Hello, perhaps this isn't totally relevant but maybe someone can steer me in the right direction.
oh okay. Because this guy that I'm going to live with in a few weeks keeps saying that to me about everything and he is cuddly and I think I want to eat him.
this is a terrible metaphor
actually, ignore this post. I just realized that he has no redeeming qualities beyond being cuddly and knowing where to find cheap food and making inappropriate jokes nonstop during Spiderman. Sorry for spamming
wait, sorry for triple edit but I have another question. Is there a way to platonically cuddle with people who are extremely unplatonic with their cuddling? does platonic cuddling even exist? if not wat do
thank you for reading this, sorry i suck at asking questions
