Well I guess it's personal sharing time. Many moon's ago I found the
"perfect" girl/woman/chick whatever we're calling the female of the species
this week. We went together for four years and were at one point engaged.
Due to a number of reasons things didn't work out. Actually due to two
things, 1) me being a butthead and fucking everything that walked when we
were together (nothing succeeds like success) and 2) the job I had that was
putting tremendous pressure on me at way too early of an age. Hence I came
home and took it out on her. (Actually it is much more #2 than #1)
Regardless as a result of all this I have seriously hated myself for years.
Every relationship that I have been in has been an effort to replace her.
I've tried it all and nothing has worked. A little over a year or so ago I
met someone and we "clicked" However the years of built up self hatred
which had now turned into self doubt caused me to not go for it. When I
realized that due to what was and will never be again I was limiting myself
and excluding myself from happiness is when I began to snap out of it.

True. That is why most lottery winners are miserable. They were miserable
without the money and the money just makes it worse. Happiness comes from

Well some girls like big guys. Some don't. The main problem with men is we
think women think like we do. In some ways they do, but in most they don't.
And we will never understand how a woman thinks.

The first time I got laid was one week before my 15th birthday. It was
another year and a half before I got laid again. What a long miserable year

Rohit's problem is a very simple one. We discussed this last night. Rohit
just plain out and out thinks to much. Rohit looks to human behavior as
some sort of complex maze like puzzle that has to be figured out. Rohit
wants his equal in a female. As I told him last night it ain't going to
happen. And why would you want it? It's either a bad case of total self
love or mixed up priorities. I don't want someone that is going to agree
with me on everything. I want my butt kicked from time to time. (Hence I'm
on the Voxers) I want the girl I marry to say to me, "Tim, you're so full
of shit, but that is why I love you, now shut up and take off your clothes."
Go sell crazy somewhere else, we're full up here. ...Nicholson
