    I mean, there's not a defined period for it. Some people like to know within a couple weeks, some people like to give it several months before deciding on way or the other. If she hasn't forced the issue then she's probably not too bothered about it.

    Thanks friends. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that he was just jet-lagged and/or caught off guard and didn't know what to say, but it is reassuring to know my reaction isn't overboard.

    it's hard to be smart and brave about affairs of the heart

    That's why it's called being smart and brave, and we all struggle with it

    Don't beat yourself up, you're a good man. I can tell, because you do actually care. If you didn't, you'd just throw it away and not feel a thing.

    So I'm still with the girl I've been seeing since August, and it looks like for Thanksgiving we will first be going to her cousin's place where her large family will be celebrating and I will meet her parents for the first time (and everyone else I guess)
    then if it gets overwhelming for us or just if we're done there, we will head to my uncle's where a small gathering of my family will be and they will meet her for the first time

    I am pretty sure that is the basis for a romcom movie right

    maybe, over the years, you can grow to love them and then you won't have to deal with breaking up with them!

    edit: alternatively, write a haiku about love fading like cherry blossoms or something and give it to them.

    I broke up with a guy via Meat Loaf lyrics. Sometimes you gotta get creative.

    Oh boy, I thought I had fucked up pretty hard today. I work for an email marketing company, and even though this is our rough time of the year, I stayed over at the girlfriend's place last night and got up super early to not only grab my work laptop from home, but also to get in to the office first.

    The day started worse than I thought it would, and I ended up responding to her texts in a less than positive fashion. I thought I was just being silly. Turns out I was actually being a total ass.

    Once I realized my folly I tried to apologize via text and she wasn't responding, so trigger full on anxiety oh no I ruined everything and she hates me. I decided to call and it turns out she fell asleep and everything is cool.

    I’m happy for my friend that he broke up with his gf “for good” he said

    He told me back in spring he was gonna do it
    And had apparently been miserable for a long time and said she was emotionally abusive which I was surprised by (or, well, actually, I was until our other friend told me a few months before but since he didn’t bring it up or show it I couldn’t really say anything)
    But then I went away on vacation and he didn’t break up successfully I guess and went on trips with her and to weddings and didn’t bring it up again and seemed like nothing was wrong

    And she seemed nice when like we went out for his birthday in Sept though in the back of my mind I was like eep

    So aside from checking in and asking how things were going, I couldn’t really do anything, which was tough - I tried to at least just invite him to hang out and check in

    He said it was a long time coming and they’d apparently broken up like 5 times

    I missed him as a friend because I guess she socially isolated him, we used to be closer a lot
    Luckily I work on the same floor as him and see him often

    So I guess I am happy
    I missed him and was sad for him and wish I could’ve helped more but I guess it was up to him to realize / if he didn’t want to talk about it, can’t do anything about that

    Woof now I guess I gotta help make sure he doesn’t get back together with her



    Somehow this is the same scenario with the girl he dated back in college too

    nah you'd definitely apologize for that as a dog owner

    GSD in particular have a high prey drive so it's not entirely unexpected, especially if the dog hasn't been brought up or exposed to other dogs, cats, and small animals. They should have warned @3clipse that this was going to happen because you know 100% what your dog will do. But lesson learned, don't watch that dog again.

    I babysat for my 8 month old nephew this morning. At one point I was trying to put him down for his nap but he was really upset, so I was sat holding him in a rocking chair trying to calm him down. Rocking and singing twinkle twinkle little star and patting him on the back. But he just kept crying. Then I had a flashback to being really little and lying awake at night crying because of an ear infection, and my dad coming in to give me medicine. He sat next to my bed and rubbed circles on my back until I fell asleep. So I started rubbing circles on my nephew's back, and he calmed right down and fell asleep on me. And I dunno why but it really got me, and then I was the one crying.

    that is lovely.

    my mom would rub my belly and hum this little tuneless hum when I was sick and now it's a thing I do to myself if I'm like, barfy sick, to try and sooth my bubbleguts.
    I've also done it to sick partners though, and they agreed that it was weird but comforting, like someone else's favorite coat.

    edit: "like someone else's favorite coat" I am so pleased with this... turn of phrase? is that a turn of phrase? whatever, I am a wordsmith

    One time my dad was up in the middle of the night with me because I was a colicky little bastard, and he was making himself some toast. Since it's awkward to butter toast with a baby in one arm, he accidentally knocked the tub of Country Crock off the counter. Something got crosswired in his brain because he dropped something while holding a baby, and ended up fully dropping me on the floor to rescue the margarine.

    The two nephews of mine I spend the most amount of time with are fiercely competitive so much so that boardgames can lead to tantrums very easily. The older of the two considers himself somewhat of a chess wizard, and I hate the game. I got sick the aforementioned tantrums and agreed to a game of chess knowing that if he won (likely, I suck at chess) he'd at least behave himself.

    The game got off to a good start, with plenty of smack-talk from him as he collected a handful of pawns and a knight and a rook.

    He was too busy telling me how stupid all my moves were to stop me checkmating him in something like 13 or 14 moves.

    I admit I did gloat a little, just a bit... "Wow, I really WAS making a lot of stupid moves."

    In the UK the beer number is 410 because you can get a pint for £10

    If I’m paying six fucking dollars for a pint of beer

    well

    it better be like

    pretty tasty.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    In a pub if it's four quid I think that's too much unless it's a special local small batch brew in which case fair enough, not like they're rolling in money. I'll pay for quality and to support local small business. But usually stuff like that's like 3-3.5 quid, and that's fair. Wouldn't ideally catch me drinking any big name brand beer at that price but you wouldn't catch me drinking that piss anyway unless there was no other choice. Last night it was Estrella and that's not tooooo bad but usually lager is a no for me, although I turned up half cut from the pub anyway so.

  • Brovid HasselsmofBrovid Hasselsmof [Growling historic on the fury road] Registered User regular
    My local it's £3.50 a pint. My parent's local it's closer to £5, but they live in the London commuter belt and that's a particularly expensive pub as well

  • JuggernutJuggernut Registered User regular
    Here in the good ole US of A if I'm paying $6+ for a pint its usually craft/ high grav.

    When I'm out boozing I don't like to pay more than $3 and that's usually for a Miller Lite. America has a lot of problems. Expensive beer is not really one of them. It may not be great beer, but it usually won't give you hook worms or anything..
