Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been recently talking to this girl I work with. We've gotten pretty serious, spending alot of time with each other, really starting to develop feelings for each other, and I could see us lasting for a pretty good while. We get along great with each other's families, whatever.
This only kink in this whole thing is the fact that I smoke. Frequently, yes, but I'm not a stereotypical stoner. I work 35+ hours a week and go to school full-time to be an EMT, hopefully someday a Paramedic. I'm fully aware that this means drug tests and I'm planning on quitting in April, two months before I even take my state exam.
She HATES it. Absolutely HATES it. I've been cutting down because I know she doesn't like it, but it is something I enjoy doing with my friends and I will never bring it around her or see her while I'm under the influence of it.
The thing is though, it's this irrational hate she harbor's towards it. Can NOT give me any sort of reason why, just that it's "fucking stupid and anyone who does it is fucking stupid too."
Basically it all culminated the other night (Friday) when I decided to stop studying for an exam I had yesterday (Saturday) and met up with some of my friends who were hanging out and smoked. So this girls ex-boyfriend they also apparently didn't work out cause he smoked..) has been texting/trying to talk to my female best friend and she mentioned that I was there hanging out. Well he went and apparently showed the girl I've been talking to these texts and she flipped out. Basically she's telling me I have to pick weed or her.
Now you don't have to tell me how stupid that sounds. Weed over a girl, weed over love, blah blah. I understand that. The thing is though, do I really want to be with someone who has to try to change me in order to love me? The fact that she can't understand that I'm 20 years old, have a good head on my shoulders and working towards doing what I want to do, all the while I've treated her like fucking gold. She's said on numerous occasions that I'm such a great guy blah blah guys like you don't exist blah blah i'm so lucky blah blah" but then turn to fucking psycho crazy as soon as I smoke?
It all sounds so fucking stupid to me, but I'm just looking for some outside opinion here. Thanks.
