Screwtape, what are you looking for, and do you actually expect to find it? What do you think will happen?

I completely 100% agree. I am less than 100% on the reality of this happening, though.

I'm sorry you feel like a freak, Screwtape, and I'm sorry you feel like crap and isolated. But again, genuinely trying to be helpful here: You come off, more than anything, stubborn and closed minded, to advice from others, learning from experience, seeing the error of your ways, looking at the world without prejudging it and the people in it. I think that might be the root of the problem, and it definitely goes hand in hand with selfishness.

I just want her to smile from what she reads. I want to know she is loved. That's all I want.

Yes.


I honestly have (had?) hope for Screwtape, but it's nights like tonight that make me believe he's in a lot of trouble. There's nothing worse than being untouchable. He claims to value our opinions, but hasn't chosen to relate them to his situation, and has merely brushed them aside (or so it appears in this thread). Very hypocritical of him to say otherwise. I honestly want the best for you, Screwtape. Otherwise I wouldn't have spent my night talking this through with you and everyone else here.

I agree some people go overboard with you, but you can't take it personally - you don't even know us.

As I said, you are not a freak, and you aren't a terrible person. Yes, you can come across selfish at times with this subject, but really, we all act selfishly at one time or another when it comes to this stuff. Because it is something we want to believe, that we need to believe. And when it doesn't turn out the way you hope it does, you learn from it and move on. Plain and simple.

Good luck man.

Cared for and loved are different thing. How well do you know her? How can you say you love her?

there's no need to apologize to us. i certainly didn't try to make you feel like a freak or anything. you probably won't believe me, but i don't think you're a freak. a little misguided, but everyone is at some point in their lives. there's nothing wrong with that.

and i've felt like you, where i feel like i don't belong anywhere. but i consider you a friend and i know others do as well so at the very least that should tell you that you belong here.

I highly doubt she will smile, unless it is to laugh at (not with) you. It depends on whether the note comes off as creepy/possessive or just plain pathetic. I know these are harsh words, but (I really need a smiley for throwing my hands up in the air in defeat but I'll just use this one)

I'm not going to tell her I love her because I honestly don't know plus that might make her a little sad. I'm going to tell her I care for her and would like to be friends.

Is it a coincidence that you're listening to that particular Foreigner song right now?

Well, unlike most of you, I have to be up early for work, so I'm gone for the night.

And Axver, if and when you read this, give me an update on what you want to do with the Critic's Choice awards. Several people are now interested, so it looks like it could be worthwhile.

Later.
