    Yeah that's what it is.

    I can only have a good time when I drink.

    Miss the point much?

    That's what I've been doing.

    I've never bowled so much in my life.

    I can be a little hard on myself, but the truth of the matter is, I get frustrated because I genuinely like who I am.

    Sometimes I get frustrated to the point of just throwing my hands in the air, much like I did last night.

    I just keep hearing from people that I'm this great guy, but where are the results?

    Then again, I think...Wow, I've been with some kick arsed women over the years, and that's pretty cool in itself.

    Would I have wanted to be married to any of them right now?

    The answer is a resounding NO.

    I just get a little yippy sometimes, I guess.

    It's not about results, I don't think. Relationships are nothing but timing. No, I don't mean timing in the sense of "did I catch the train in time to meet the woman of my dreams," I mean timing as in "are we going to similar places at similar times in our lives?" Nearly 100% of the time, even with the best chemistry on earth, the answer to that question is No.

    So, truthfully, it's not you. You've got the goods. It's timing. Ask yourself what you want out of life and move in the circles that facilitate that.

    And have confidence.

    Makes sense.

    I think I'm just going through so many changes right now, that my head's spinning.

    I've been working out like a wildman and I've lost something like 30% of my body fat, I'm going to be selling the shop soon and moving on to another career, I've had this breakup thing.

    I can't fight the cosmos, but sometimes I feel like giving it a try.

    Times like these make all of those records I listen to actually mean something.

    No question. Change yourself, your mind, your career, your ambitions as often and as doggedly as you can. Have a great project. The good things in life, including relationships, follow suit.

    Wheels, I hope you realize that what you have to offer is unique and special. Don't ever think otherwise. You'll find someone special to share your life with, although it sometimes ends up being someone that you may never have imagined. Don't stop looking, but that person may end up finding you, not you finding them.

    I think it's fair to say that what Butler had to offer wasn't exactly in the spirit of recommendation or advice, but chastisement.

    You can tell because he prefaced it with: "I mean no offense..."

    Yeah, sure.

    Re: Okay...So I'm a bundle of nerves.

    You have to crash and burn a few times to know what you really want.

    I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who didn't have to go through that, but in my experience, they're in the minority.

    You find out what you can and can't live with in a person. The more distance you put between you and the bad relationships you go through, the easier it is to view them objectively and try to learn from the experience.

    The only people who don't make mistakes are people who never do anything. Life is made to be lived. It's messy and painful sometimes, but as you grow older, the experiences you go through help to define you and make you stronger.


    When you do meet the person you were meant to be with, you'll appreciate it more. And it can't be rushed.

    Then you will be fine.

    I think FCB is dead-on in what he says about timing (and this all goes for you too Mr Cinatit (and Mr Cinatit, I never really read your name until now.) ) There's nothing "about" you that will appeal to the female population at large. There are many little things about you that will compliment many little things about someone else at some point if you meet her at the right time. I think it's a long lesson to learn, but good relationships are not based on having the same interests as somebody else, and they certainly aren't based on looks. You may meet some girl who's never seen a record in her life and whose primary interest is collecting My Little Ponies, and that girl may really love who you are and what you believe in, and respect what you want out of life and want to help you get there.

    And that is timing. You don't typically look for these people and find them (though I do believe people are more ready for relationships at certain times than others, and that they have more control over when that happens than they believe). Just have a good life. Spend time with the people you love, do the things you like to do, learn the things you want to learn, and you will be happy. Happy people attract other happy people. So you will be the best version of yourself if you do meet somebody, and if you don't, you will be happy anyway. Happy happy joy joy.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    falls city,thank you for reading my mind for me today. I wasn't chastising this person. He had a relationship that went sour,had a nice sort of kiss and make up conversation with her. She then asked for a get together of some sort with him. He declined to due a "embibe a thon" as he called it. He then is questioning basically if he should feel bad over this..did i miss something??

    The way I see it, you had a problem with the embibe a thon, so you felt the need to gimme that tired old line we all heard in high school a million times.

    I'm glad you're of a higher moral fiber, but there's a time and place for everything.
