love and relationships

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

I'm tempted to say that the majority of you are
being rather cynical about finding
a partner and being happy;
(there's alot of "don't bothers" about)
but its probably just because your being
more realistic and thoughtful than the
average blonde found pouting in the
HA HA Bar on saturday night.
Its my opinion that we should all get out
there and give oppertunities a shot in life;
you only get one life, and it goes bloody fast.
Soon we'll be old, and I don't think any of us
would want to be sitting around, regretting
what we havn't done.

not loved at all"

I agree with Ocean Moves' attitude as it basically sums up my own outlook. Life is for the living, and there's no shame in bombing out now and then. It'll happen anyway, whether you like it or not.

I was listening to a radio report about teenage depression once - how it's on the rise and all that. At the end of the report, the DJ comes back on and says, 'When I was growing up, all my old man said to me about such issues was: "Life's tough. Get over it." '

Not everyone will agree with his view, but he has a point. Bounce back quickly, if you can - although there's probably a difference between bouncing back (with emotional fortitude) and not giving a feck that it's over!

Feeling sorry for yourself for the next six months/years/whatever can be counter-productive. God, there are people onto their third marriage.

Which is a bit like saying ' if you're not sitting with your hand in the fire, you've chosen not be hurt'.

The logic of that is being in a relationship is choosing to be hurt, which I think was pretty much Christophe's point.

Self-help gibberish. Or self-pity as it should be properly known. Put it in the bin and live your own life, right or wrong.

--- If you knew me, you'd know I'm not one for self pity. Happy-go-lucky is more like it.

My interpretation of Robbins' comment is quite different to your own. It's more about risk, not that relationships are invariably painful or hurtful.

"Once Bitten, Twice Shy", I think he's saying. :wink:

I think that as a child we learn from our mistakes, and that is an accepted means of learning, (we learn to talk by not talking, we learn to walk by not walking...) but when we reach
adulthood there is sense that somehow we should know exactly what
we are doing now, which I think is ridiculous. ....... we still
make mistakes as we go, probably more so, and have to learn from them.
Sometimes we need to screw up now and then to learn how best to
do things, take choices, relationships etc..

Yeah, it's called the "University of HK" - the school of hard knocks!

Once in a while in hockey I've taken hits where I could barely pick myself up from the ice. But it's always my aim to get up real fast.

Watching kids skate or fall, and then watching adults who are learning to skate, you see such a difference. No adult wants to look like an idiot. But when people learn to skate, they think the barrier around the outside of the rink is the safest place to be. In hockey you recognize that it's the least safe place to be. To achieve anything in life, you've got to push past your boundaries by coming out of your comfort zone. It's the only way.

So then, how should guys approach girls? It's usually the guy who approaches first, although there's wisdom in getting the girl interested, rather than chasing her too hard. What else do guys do wrong?

Well, that's the other extreme. It depends a lot on the perspective of the Observer, my definition of Extreme Isolation and Extreme Attachment probably differs wildly to other Heartlanders...

That is what happens when the soundtrack to your life is a Sisters album in your walkman twenty-four-seven.

yes, that is my attitude right now. I don't regret anything I have done so far, even if it was a mistake I have learnt from it. I am slightly cynical about the whole marriage thing. don't think it is necessary to get married, it makes life more complictaed (and yes, I have that ring on my finger). I am even more cynical about getting involved with married men (or women in guys case) - what a waste of time!
I made a few silly things in the past, but I really never thought I shouldn't have done them. My life is very intensive in every way and that's the way I like it.
"its better to have loved and lost than to have
not loved at all"
yes, even if this love lasts for 30 minutes! :wink:

Good subject, Ocean Moves!
