well swallow, i feel for ya. its not a fun thing bein lonely is it?

one thing i hate is when people say things will happen when you least expect it. well, for me, that was the case. sure i liked someone immediately out of the blue, and she even liked me, and we even went out, and i (not we) had the greatest time ever, and she dumped me. huzzah, huzzah.

im on a roll
im on a roll

i feel my luck could change

pull me out of the aircrash

no offence, but that is pure coincidence.

It seems like most people think that I am kind of sad about being single, I'm not. I just like hearing love stories.

Oh, and thanks for the story travu2. I can relate to it.

mmmm,
perhaps not the greatest love story ever told, but this is my love story

my girlfriend is 5 years and 4 months younger than I am
when we first met I was only 19 years old, needless to say I wasn't interested in her in any romantic way, but we saw each other every monday night (youth choir) and always got along great
this went one for more than 2 years until I found out I wanted her to be more than just a friend
I didn't dare to ask her out though, because of the difference in age and because I couldn't believe such a lovely girl would really be interested in me
than I got a birthday card from her asking me if I would be interested to get together for a few drinks during the holidays
I immediately called her and we've been together for almost 5 years now

(BTW the age difference turned out to be no problem
I'm almost as grown up as she is )

None taken. It was just the best quote I could think of at the time.

Me, I have wanted to fall in love a few times, twice actually. But I never got the chance to be loved back, I got rejected both times. It was not easy but turned out to be for the best. I later found out many reasons why I should have NOT been with the 2 that I thought I wanted.

Ah, this sounds just like me. I'm not sure if I've ever been in love. I've been obsessed three times in my life. I sort of believe that real love is when it's reciprocated, which it never has been for me. I think the first time was the best. I was 15 and it was my first crush, on a guy in my class. He was much shorter than me (I'm six feet tall) which is funny now I think about it. I didn't know him, he was just very cute and flirted with me (and other girls in the class) a little bit. So it was nothing much, just fun for me, besides the usual few moments of agony for various reasons. The reason that was the best experience for me is that the other two turned into absolute torture--in one case because the guy was never remotely interested in me and then got engaged to someone else (younger than me, and I was 18, for pity's sake--and they've been happily married now for three years) and in the other case because I cared about the guy as a friend but we had utterly different outlooks on life, which eventually ended our friendship, over two years ago and I still haven't exactly recovered. I've only gone out with one guy in my life and I wasn't in love with him, though I did like him. He broke up with me after six weeks and I later found out some things about him that made me very glad it had ended.

Makes me think of that wonderful poem you wrote, scatteroflight ("His hands...").

Our story is basically music, music music
and boys boys boys. We feel blessed.
We have genuinely enjoyed each other's company on a day to day basis for almost 22 years. That part has to come easy I think.I hope we are going to go the distance. He's my best friend. I hope you find yours JS.

It is very late and I have to get up early, but I love talking about her:

I'll try and make the story simple and basic, but here goes. About a year ago, a very stupid kid who struggled through the problems of relationships in the first three years of high school, got extremely lucky. I met her through mutual friends. The end of last summer, I wanted to actually stay single because I figured that's how my life would go. Surprisingly, I had more than one posibility of girls to date early in the year. Those chances fell through fast, and well, calling her was almost a "last case/just-a-friendly-"hi"" scenario. I'll never forget the day I first called her. When we began talking it was bright afternoon; ending it was pitch black evening (almost). A month after that call, we started dating. We have been ever since. Everything I would normally do in life is enhanced; like taking trips/making errands. I think something U2 related (and cool!), is that we started dating around ATYCLB's release, so all those songs have extra meaning. Thanks for asking! - matt
