    O btw, you should totally watch 500 Days of Summer if you haven't seen it yet; it would be totally relatable for you right now http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1022603/

    Everyone's got their baggage from past relationships, but it's just not fair to the other party if you're still holding out for your ex. Besides, the best way to get into a relationship is when you're happy and stable with yourself and your standing.
    Yeah, you'd be hung up on "somebody that you used to know. . ."

    Fascinating.

    500 days of summer was just full of... sadness. I ended up hating the girl for what she did to the guy. I can see what the movie is trying to say, though. Nobody can really be labeled as "the one" because of something.. i can't remember why.

    About that advice on listening to sad songs. Adele seems to be doing the trick. So many manly tears. Manly, manly.

    Do a lot of work and your work will be as good as your ambitions.

    Oh, I'm sorry you found it so sad. I personally found it uplifting because once he accepts that the relationship isn't going to work, he starts focusing on the things he had been ignoring, like his own passion for architecture, and through that process he's able to move on to the next stage of his life and come out a better person for it. But yeah, the girl isn't painted as a terribly nice person because it's very much from Tom's perspective. It was written by a guy just after he was dumped and is very autobiographical.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. I feel bad for laughing at that gif though

    If I must recommend anything to you it's this: Don't say anything you don't mean, good or bad. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing, and let it become part of the past.
    No matter how pointless it may seem don't abandon the other things that you like in life, and do your best not to dwell on why it ended; You'll just end up hurting more.
    Take care of yourself.

    When he started doing that (focusing on himself) I thought of all the comments in this thread. It will all be easier when I get back to America.

    So I made it drag on until now, 7 months later. We were both in limbo about where we were in the relationship and she confessed to being selfish. She wanted to eat the cake and have it too. I really thought that wouldn't be possible with her but as a person said in here she would do it, willingly or unwillingly. I got sick of her treating me like a boyfriend yet using the "just friends" quote when she felt like it. I got sick of the pain of being in limbo about my feelings and about her feelings. I just couldn't take it any more. I am glad it didn't last for years. It could have easily lasted that long, but I am done. I was so scared of losing her to someone else or her forgetting about me that I would stew in my pain just to make sure that I knew she wasn't going after anybody else and that she still "loves" me. *sigh* It also began to hurt when she said that.

    Anyway, better late than never.

    Do a lot of work and your work will be as good as your ambitions.

    I concur, 500 Days of Summer is a really bad movie to watch if you're not in a good place, gets you all confused and makes you hate the girl.

    The only reason you'd hate the female character after watching 500 DoS is because you're the kind of creeper who won't take no for an answer.

    It's been a while since I saw that film, don't remember exactly why I did. I think it was more like how she did it rather than she did it and I related to her and realised I'm kinda doing the same and that made me feel bad about myself.
