Title: Ask Thrindle
Post by: Gold Trumpet on July 05, 2004, 10:14:34 PM
A thread of dedication to the woman with the highest sense of intuition on the board about the matters that effect us in everyday living. Problems that cloud every self help book and are given fresh answers here because the author knows just realistic common sense approach that tries not to be preaching or condescending, but helpful and direct. So, ask away and even if it goes off topic from this introduction, I'm sure she'll be happy to answer. And yes, folks, this thread is "Thrindle Approved".

ASK AWAY!

Yay!  An "Ask Thrindle" thread...  I've got the biggest grin, and feel something like Dear Abby right now.   :-D   So here goes...

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
Question for Thrindle: are you and GT having an affair or something?

Hmm... I guess that would depend on the definition of affair...

af·faire a : a romantic or passionate attachment typically of limited duration : LIAISON 2b b : a matter occasioning public anxiety, controversy, or scandal

Romantic or passionate involvement?  Perhaps when he comes to see me  :wink: ... but a situation causing anxiety and controversy...  I think not!  But then again, we did meet on the internet (isn't that taboo?)...

Quote from: Mogwai

As of late... no.  Haven't you read my complaining for the last four months about the lack of "canoodling" in my life?

Yes.  On occasion Thrindle has been known to talk in third person.  She doesn't really know why.  She supposes it's a part of the charm that is Thrindle.

Ready to give some insightful answers to your insightful questions...  :roll:

Quote from: classical gas

I've come to notice that xixax is somewhat of a womb.  Like Pas said in another post... posting seems to be inversely proportional to the amount of happiness in one's life.  Perhaps Godardian found himself a sweet ass significant other to spend his time with.  And maybe P did the same (is that one likely - I don't know).  But either way...  My guess is that they have been born into the real world only to return to xixax when refuelling is needed.

Haven't we been through this one before?  Really though... I tried to make it my av once... and my computer wouldn't let me.  So blame my lack of pic on technical difficulties.

Because Crono, you are too good of a guy.  Young girls are frightened by the prospect of good guys...  they want wild... they want crazy... they want to defy their parents.  It sounds like you've got a habit of hitting "friend zone" rather easily.  I say, don't worry too hard!  Sooner (rather than later) you are going to find an amazing girl who is secure enough within herself, she won't need to be chasing after a guy to prove her self worth.  When she does meet you, she'll be so enthralled that she will want to canoodle you day in, and day out.
There you go Xixaxers, I've figured it out!  Girls like the wild guys, because once they tame them, they believe it says something about their worth as a female!

Quote from: cronopio

Well Crono,  I think GT is the most honest, intuitive, and genuine person that I have ever met.

When I'm depressed it's blue... and when I am happy (like I am these days) it's fire-fucking-engine red!

Quote from: kotte
What is the meaning of life? Don't say none.

Oh geez... this will sound cliched, but it is to learn - No I don't mean in an educational sense.  I mean it more in the sense that we are here to experience and evolve as people, and souls.  My outlook on life has been largely affected by the negative experiences I've had.  At times, I've thought that life was an unrealistic venture, and pulling the plug early might be the way to go (seeing as our time here is virtually pointless).  Now that I've lived through that paradigm and moved onto another, I can understand that the pain has given me more tools to continue my journey.  And I've decided that my life here, as well as everyone else's, is to experience and grow the best that we can.  Our lives may not be perfectly lived, but they are perfectly entwined.  When all has ended, we all become a part of what we once were, together.

Quote from: kotte
What do people need?

All people need is some companionship.  All anybody really wants is another body to share themselves with.  Be it their minds, hearts, or orgasmic pursuits, all we ever really need is the companionship of another.  Besides, we are a uniquely language oriented species, that is so that we can communicate amongst ourselves.  Humans were designed to interact... I think it's because we need love (aawwwww).

Quote from: kotte
Seen the movie Amelie?

Loved it!

Quote from: kotte
Name someone you would love to be like.

Shirley MacLaine - yes she's wingy, but she's her own woman.
Susan Sarandon - The ultimate woman.  She's got a brilliant mind, an activist's voice, and a sexy body (blah).

Only until you become more comfortable in who you are.  By that time you'll be pursuing girls that you are better fit for you.  You'll have a better idea of your match, and they will be intrigued by your self acceptance (girls love confidence).  The universe has a way of giving you what you are ready for.  Maybe you need this shitty line right now, so that you can appreciate that great girl of your future...

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
How can I become a better kisser?

Thrindle's Guide to Good Kissing:
Go in for the kiss slowly.  Tilt your head to one side... nothing's worse than bumping noses.  Start with a peck that is slightly open mouthed.  Gently slip your tongue in, a little at a time - Never jam your tongue down her throat immediately!  Never reach for her tonsils...  this will end up in discomfort and a ton of your spit in her mouth.  Always breath through your nose, and to continue the "peck and tongue" technique... nibble her bottom lip.  That's killer!  (oh and have fresh breath - that's crucial)

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
How do I know when I've gone too far (with a girl)?

Usually she starts pushing you away a bit.  Girls have a really hard time saying "no" during a make out session... that's why I love this question!  I wrote a paper about this in my first semester of University.  Here's the deal, a girl will usually start pulling away, or be less apt to kiss you back.  Furthermore, she'll be reluctant to remove her clothing, or yours for that matter.  IF you are really unsure as to whether or not she's comfortable... JUST ASK!  Girls love a guy who actually cares about how she's feeling... even if you are just trying to get into her pants.  Cheers.

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
What are your thoughts on boobs?

They are sexy as hell!  Even if they are just large globs of fat and glandular material, topped with a nipple.


Quote from: Chest Rockwell
How about sado-masochism?

In it's purest form, it is the symptom, or result, of severe psychological fucked-up-edness.  But light bondage and domination... can be sorta fun in the bedroom.

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
Why won't P ever get around to changing my rank? Is he absent or something?

If you ask P for anything, he's only going to point at you and laugh.  Stop asking.  Either that, or be nice to MacGuffin.

Quote from: MacGuffin
1.) Is it really better to have lost in love than never to have loved at all?

I've thought long and hard about this question.  And while I was pondering, I remembered a time where I said, "I am black inside.  It's as though I'm charred and burnt, and nothing will grow here again.  I'm dead inside".  Though that seems dramatic, it's the truth.  There was a time where I hated love, or the idea that I had loved.  But in time I began to regenerate, and as I grew, I realised how grateful I was for my love.  Although it had hurt, I learned so much about myself.  The problem wiht people is that we cannot truly know ourselves, unless we interact with others.  A person would have the mind of an infant if he spent his entire life alone and without personal contact.  So I began to understand that the next time around, I would understand myself enough to give different parts of me.  Not to keep guarded, but to divulge myself and my truths, when it was right for me.  So far this has worked.
Another thing about heartache is that people who have loved well, tend to get the brunt of it.  But think about it, wouldn't you rather have loved well, than to have barely scratched the surface of an emotion so extraordinary?

Quote from: MacGuffin
2.) Does size really matter?

Honestly, no.  I admit to having some (ahem) expertise in canoodling... and the ladies who say that size matters, are only saying that because all they've ever experienced is a jackrabbit (in-out-in-out).  For the "jackrabbit" size is necessary because no skill is involved.  What is much more important is the intimacy used in canoodling.  Good foreplay, intuitive foreplay, not robotic pre-planned methods,  is the key to good sex.  Seriously, being able to talk to the person you are with is the most important.  I've experienced big and average.  Average was the way to go... why?  Because average guys are more about theirinvolvement in the process... than what their weiner is doing...  (sorry if that was too much information)

Quote from: MacGuffin
3.) Does the size of a man's wallet matter to a woman?

Sadly enough, to many women, yes.  Many women (and men) are shallow enough to pursue financial interests, as well as romantic ones.  If you are a shallow person, chances are you are going to pick up people on the same frequency that you vibrate on.  
But more realistically, women really want security.  They want to know that they could build a life with you, and be alright.  They want a hard worker, someone who is decent and has integrity.  Most women would rather a real man, than a pocket book.

Quote from: MacGuffin
4.) Does age matter?

It all depends on the person.  I believe relationships are a two way street... if you're dating someone because you get to be in the driver's seat, then that's a problem.  But if the person you are with is not the same age as you, and you connect on the same mental level... go for it!  Do it up!

Quote from: MacGuffin
5.) How does one prevent 'coming on too strong' with a woman?

I think coming on to strong is often affiliated with "neediness".  Women want someone who is comfortable in their own skin.  It not attractive to have someone seem dependant on you... especially in the beginning.  To prevent coming on too strong can be done by staying in the moment... trying not to fret... not taking things personally... enjoying yourself... and loving yourself enough to know that this person is not the only one...

Quote from: MacGuffin
6.) What's the best way to approach a woman? 'Lines' don't really work, do they?

Lines do not work!  You know why? Because women with half-a-brain can't take them seriously!  My never-fail attempt: is the "smile".  Is the "hi".  Is "eye contact" (and goddamnit that can be hard).  
But seriously, if you sort of know someone, and have an idea as to what they are interested in... ask them out for that.  Movies, poetry readings, insanely good sushi, book signings, plays... etcetera!  If you want to come on to a woman, come on to her mind.  Never fails.

Quote from: MacGuffin
7.) Your feelings on the word 'bitch'?

I am the quintessential bitch.  I love the word myself.  Why?  Because I feel that women have taken the term and morphed it into something beautiful.  A bitch is no longer a bad thing.  A bitch is about being in control of one's self.  A bitch is speaking her mind.  A bitch is having an educated opinion.  A bitch is not afraid to be active and fight for her own beliefs.  A bitch is a woman who has actualised her person.

Quote from: Meatwad
what are your feeling on drugs?

I'd be a hypocrite if I said drugs are bad, don't ever do them!
Right now in my life I'm finding that they aren't serving me.  I don't like who I am when I do them.  I'm also finding it difficult to admit that there is no such thing as a recreational coke user... now how to get my friends to understand that...

Wow that was honest.   and the hardest question to answer

Being raped and murdered.

Quote from: kotte
Describe the boy of your dreams.

He is open-minded, honest, and in touch with his "feelings".  My perfect man is someone who has personal integrity and confidence.  I want someone who doesn't buy into the status quo, and can think outside the box.  Someone who can accept me, and love me, despite my many flaws and imperfections...

Quote from: kotte
Hurt or get hurt?

I would much rather be hurt.  I have been hurt enough in this lifetime to realise that absolutely nothing will kill me.  Yes, I may get knocked down and question my ability to get back up... but in the end some form of me always remains.  Hurting someone else causes me much more pain than dealing with my own feelings.  In fact, I spend too much of my life trying not to hurt other people.

Quote from: kotte
How different are we?

Well Kotte, I believe that no means no...   :-D

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Do you believe in the term "soul mates" and everything people hype that up to be?

Well GT, no I don't.  People change so much in their lives that at certain times some people are a better fit than others.  That isn't to say that I don't believe in loving a person, and working with them, to remain together.  "Soul Mates" is a term devoid of many aspects of a relationship.  It is used in such a way that a relationship does not need trust, understanding, and compromise, as it's basis.  I believe that if you are willing to work together on a partnership, a person can then be your "one and only" for life.   Oh fuck, who am I kidding.  Yeah, you can have an everlasting connection with someone despite all of the above.  Whether or not it permits a relationship to work out though... is as I said before.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

Same scenario... still performed after 20 years together.

Is your "canoodling" as good as you say?

They don't call me an expert for nothing!  But seriously...

I look forward to the wisdom that old age will afford me.  I do not look forward to the failing of my health.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Have you ever written poetry?

Yes.  And it's all melodramatic.  I recall starting a thread about it.  Very few replies... apparently my writing talent does not exceed the ability to give advice.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

You know I will.
 
Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Can you spend an entire evening reading to me all your favorite poetry?

I'll one-up-ya... I'll read you short stories from Margaret Lawrence's "A Bird in the House".  That's my favorite of all time...

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Do you believe Oscar Wilde when he says "bad poetry is always honest"?

I do.  Bad poetry doesn't lend itself to flourish or minimalism.  It is what it is.  Bad poetry is usually very direct and thruthful... that is... unless someone is trying to stylize e.e. cummings.  Then it's just wrong.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Do you put the toliet seat down after you use it?

I don't put it up in the first place!

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Do you pick your nose?

You forget that I have a nose ring.  There has to be some form of pickage due to the obstruction of my metal appendage.  But seriously, I don't eat it!

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

Is this a good poem (by buk)

bluebird

there's a bluebird in my heart that

wants to get out

but I'm too tough for him,

I say, stay in there, I'm not going

to let anybody see

you.

there's a bluebird in my heart that

wants to get out

but I pour whiskey on him and inhale

cigarette smoke

and the whores and the bartenders

and the grocery clerks

never know that

he's

in there.

there's a bluebird in my heart that

wants to get out

but I'm too tough for him,

I say,

stay down, do you want to mess

me up?

you want to screw up the

works?

you want to blow my book sales in

Europe?

there's a bluebird in my heart that

wants to get out

but I'm too clever, I only let him out

at night sometimes

when everybody's asleep.

I say, I know that you're there,

so don't be

sad.

then I put him back,

but he's singing a little

in there, I haven't quite let him

die

and we sleep together like

that

with our

secret pact

and it's nice enough to

make a man

weep, but I don't

weep, do

you?


edit: for the record, if it wasn't clear from "buk", and for those who didn't like the poem, i didn't write it....but for those who did like it...i take full credit for it.

Quote from: kotte
Hurt or get hurt?

I would much rather be hurt.  I have been hurt enough in this lifetime to realise that absolutely nothing will kill me.  Yes, I may get knocked down and question my ability to get back up... but in the end some form of me always remains.  Hurting someone else causes me much more pain than dealing with my own feelings.  In fact, I spend too much of my life trying not to hurt other people.


I, too, say I'd rather get hurt...but I think I'm kidding myself. It's too painful, it hurts too much. Questioning oneselfs ability to get up again. You know you will get up but in the moment pain overshadows that fact.
This pain scares the hell out of me...and everyone else I assume. I just fell in love with a girl and we're together but in the back of my head I know it will end in pain and tears.
Some people fall in love easily. Others do not, but when do they fall HARD.
Be in the moment and never plan ahead more than a week. Best thing to do right? Because life is an emotional rollercoaster ride and we should get used to it. The mistake rookies in love make is they open up completely. With experience you learn not to but I don't know how to do it...keep parts of me to myself. If that's what needs to be done...how do you do it?

(bluebird)

I feel like this is a trick question.  Say it's good... retarded, say it's bad... also retarded.  In my honest opinion, I really liked it.  I would say it's good.

Quote from: kotte
The mistake rookies in love make is they open up completely. With experience you learn not to but I don't know how to do it...keep parts of me to myself. If that's what needs to be done...how do you do it?

Hmmm... I've been fretting about this question... and then I realised that it's not about how to keep ourselves hidden.  I think what we learn to do (after having break ups and heartbreaks), is to love with caution.  I am perfectly willing to give of myself, because it is mine for keeps.  However, I am not willing to compromise myself.  What I mean by this, is that although I love just as deeply as I once did, I no longer put myself second.  I will not change my life plans, or degrade my personal integrity, to keep someone close to me.  Sometimes when we love too hard, we get lost.  We forget who we are, and give ourselves completely to the other person.  I think that the trick is, loving yourself AND loving the other person.  Remaining who you are as an individual, as well as being in love, as a couple.
I had a hard time explaining my answer to this question... if it's too unclear just tell me.

Quote from: kotte
Seriously though...I mean men and women...how different are we really?


Wow, do we really want to get into this one?  Ok, I've had huge debates on this one, and this is what I think: Men and women aren't so different at all.  We may be taught that men are more logical and women are more emotional, but that's a load of crap.  THere have been many times where I've remained logical while a guy I'm with has lost his mind...
I really think it comes down to the way we raise our children with gender stereotypes.  I truly believe that men are fully capable of feeling the way that women do.  I also believe that women are fully able to be controlled and rational, but are allowed to have more emotion (furthermore, they are expected to).  I think it's an insult to both genders to say that one is better (at certain things) than the other.  Honestly Kotte, you can't tell me that just because you are male, you've never felt pain in the same way a female can.

Quote from: Chest Rockwell

Seriously Chest, my perfect man is just a really large phallus.  But I felt it was wrong to say that.   :roll:

I enjoyed this poem, but I felt it was more effective as the first stanza only.  I think that the title of the poem can encapsulate what the second stanza does.  Is that too minimalist?  Hmmm... but yea, I like the language.  (did you write it?)

Yes, asshole.

Yes because you could die.  No because it's just too much fun to drive with an asshole.

This red shirt I bought in highschool.  It was known as The Red Shirt.  Seriously, the shirt was known.  Bright crimson... and cut down to there...

Consider yourself short $20.  But don't worry I'll reimburse you somehow...

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

Yes, I'm nervous and uptight.  Furthermore I worked till 10:30pm and have to be back at work at 7:45am.  I'm a corporate slut.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
If you could change one thing about your self, what would it be?

Either my pudgy tummy, or the scar on my neck.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Strawberries or blueberries?

 Strawberries.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
What food is best with sex?

It's not about food during sex.  It's about working up an appetite and raiding the fridge afterwards.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
What is the most important piece of furniture for an apartment?

I was thisclose to saying bed... but that's not true.  I love a really comfy couch.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
What will be the first movie we watch together?

 Before Sunset.  We'll see it on monday night if you aren't too bagged.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

I guess I'd have to say yes.  But anyone who doesn't see where you're coming from, is simply ignorant - or a really bad judge of character.

Everything you wrote is quite clear.
Maybe it's easier to lose yourself if you dislike who you are.
Love between two people can be equally strong but some people fall deeper...in(to) love, if you know what I mean. That's the feeling I get anyway. Are they weaker, priorities messed up...etc etc? Can't really be priorities, that's a concious choice and someone who choose deep pain and heartache...probably deserves it...eh...

Of'course I have. Pain is something universal and we all experience it. It is pretty much our only learning device...What doesn't kill us makes us stronger (smarter).

Quote from: kotte

Oh man, I wish I had a real answer to this question.  I truly believe that people act out of two emotions: love and fear.  Think about it, every negative emotion you've ever had... is based on fear.  Jealousy is a fear of never having what the other person does (etcetera).  I think that some part of us knows that love and fear are the only two emotions... one black one white.  We look to the lighter energy of love because it actualises who we are.  It brings out the good in all of us, and makes us stronger to fight the fear that we all face.

Actually, we were discussing this yesterday at a bar with a few drinks already poured into our blood. We didn't get to any conclusions, but we kind of thought about this, and I'd like Thrindle to confirm or deny this:

Women wear low-cut tops, and etc... because they know they look good and they know men look at them and they wanna feel good. They wanna feel wanted. I don't think there's any doubt. Women love sex and seduction and beeing sexy as much as we do. They know we look at them and we lust after them. However, the only thing I'm not sure they know is that in some cases, we completely eat them up. We analyze every part of their sexyness and, well, we mentally undress them completely. I mean, at least I do and my friends at the bar also said they do. So, are women aware of all this?

Here's the deal, Mac, you've asked so many good questions that I've been avoiding answering them.  I want to take the time to answer them properly.  So I hope that I can get to them today.  I'm going to buy a new wardrobe today... Thrindle has limited clothing.

Title: Ask Thrindle
Post by: Thrindle on July 18, 2004, 08:59:19 PM
... where to start?  Where to START?  Ok, so I've been on hiatus... and avoiding some of these questions like the plague.  I've had to re-examine some of my thinking so I hope that my answers are up to par.

Quote from: MacGuffin
1.) Your feelings on plastic surgery, especially breast augmentation, and why women do it?

Well, in my opinion, plastic surgery today should be a non-issue.  After how far women came in the women's lib movement of the 1970's (etcetera), you would think that our need for male validation has diminished - but that is far from the case.  It seems to me, that women have yet to find the happy-medium between being brilliant, respected, worldly creatures... to the women of yesterday that were safe, comforted, and subordinated within their homes.  It's odd... but I'vefound that by being smart and outspoken, more men are apt to find me less attractive.  When feeling like this, I've turned to my physical appearance for comfort.  Although my hair is no longer blonde, and cleavage is not my wardrobe choice for everyday, there was a time where I felt the need to be outwardly appealing... to make up for the fact that every time I said a "big" word... guys would turn around and walk away.  Basically, women are just having a hard time discovering that their desirability can transcend their physicality.  Because of this, women seem to go to great lengths to attain physical attributes that will give them the confidence and self assurance needed to fit te mold that this society has created for them.  In the topic of plastic surgery, it is an extreme form of harmful gender socialization.  Think about it, do you want silicone in your Johnson?

- MAC I CANNOT ANSWER THIS!  WOMEN WANT TO BE THOUGHT OF AS ATTRACTIVE BECAUSE WE ARE INSECURE BEINGS WHO HAVE BEEN TAUGHT (FROM BIRTH) THAT OUR SELF WORTH IS FOUND IN THE KIND OF MAN WE ATTAIN.  IT IS BULLSHIT!  

Quote from: MacGuffin
2.) Okay, women wear low-cut tops or revealing clothing knowing perfectly well men will look, then get offended when they do so. Do women just take that risk for looking good, or...?

Oh god... I've been thinking about this one for ages.  I know that when I go out to the bar I wear provocative clothing.  I've been asked why I wear these types of clothes and I answered that it's considered to be "dressed up" and I feel attractive.  I myself don't get annoyed when men look at me - I'm dressed provocatively... why wouldn't they?!  But I can see an argument as to why women are offended by leering perverts.  It's as simple as the double standard between men going shirtless and women having to wear tops.  Just because a woman wants to dress a certain way, does not mean that she's begging to be disrespected.  And I know a bunch of guys on here are going to argue that, but no man has the right to disrespect a woman simply because of her body or what she chooses to wear.  I take this question personally because I've been grabbed before (very crudely at a party) and it was a humiliating experience.  Absolutely wrong.  So yes, some women are offended by oglers.  They have a right to be ogle-free.  Having said that, society is what it is, and things are what they are... so your best bet not to be pestered is to cover up.  
I hope that next time you guys are going topless around town, you realise how lucky you are not to worry about - at the least, catcalls - and - at the worst, rape.

Quote from: MacGuffin
3.) Seen "Secretary"? And if so, your review please.

No... but I'll give a review when I see it.

Quote from: MacGuffin
4.) Your definition of 'feminist/feminism'?

Ahhhh... Feminism Thrindle style.  Ok, so it's my understanding that there are three main types of feminism.  The first is Liberal feminism.  This type of feminism endorses equal opportunities and rights for both men and women.  The second type is Socialist feminism that works to integrate power among a collective of people (both men and women), rather than in the hands of a minority of men.  And the final kind of feminism is Radical feminism, which pursues the evolution of the human species into one gender (through yes - nip and tuck).  Personally, I am a Liberal feminist.  I want equal opportunities for both men and women.  But I am not naive enough to think that this may actually be possible.  I say this in the sense that, unlike many feminists, I do believe that men and women are physically different.  I do not deny the fact that our reproductive systems are separate, or that men are physically stronger than women.  However, I do recognize the amount of gender socialisation that takes place for males and females and I believe that our thought capacities are identical.
Quote from: MacGuffin
5.) Without taking a test and the obvious 'morning sickness', how can a women tell in her body that she's pregnant?

A woman can usually tell because her breasts become unbearably sore.  They get hard and super-sensitive to the touch.

Quote from: MacGuffin
6.) Why do some women stay in 'abusive' (not necessarily the physical kind) relationships when they know it's not healthy for them and they should get out of it?

Good question Mac.  I'm going to let this apply to both men and women.  I believe that all people have tools.  We've got the survival mechanisms we need to get by.  Unfortunately, some people have more tools than others, and sometimes our tools only let us survive (bare minimum, no extras).  Many people stay in abusive relationships because they are not conscious enough of the actual situation to get out.  If you cannot see that something is wrong, why would you leave?  I personally believe that people fear leaving the comfort of an abusive relationship.  They know how to dance the dance.  Although it is dysfunctional, there is comfort in knowing your role, and understanding the unspoken agreements that go with it.  For example, I'll let you hurt me if you promise to never leave; or, you don't bother me about my wieght, and I wont question you about your whereabouts.  There is a fear of a healthy relationship when you are in a dysfunctional one, because a person may not know how to do it.  It means changing your life, changing your thinking, changing yourself.  There is always comfort in consistency.

Quote from: MacGuffin
7.) Name some strong, positive female characters (not the actresses playing them).

Damnit this one was hard!  I thought and thought, and I noticed a trend...  many strong female characters become weak in the face of men.

I really love Annie from Bull Durham and I love Lisa from Girl, Interrupted.  Although they are not conventionally "positive" they have strength, and they live as they choose.  Yes, Lisa is in a mental hospital, but she is there largely because of her enormous personality that does not fit in the stifling era of the 1960's.  And as for Annie... all I can say is "breath through your eyelids".

Quote from: ranemaka13
How important is it to be funny? Either around a significant other or just around friends, is it important to be funny most, if not all, of the time?

I don't know if it's important to be funny all the time, but it is important to have a sense of humor!  I am not the funniest person, but I can laugh at other people's jokes and appreciate the craziness that we all live in.  There are times to be ridiculous and times to be serious.  I think the most important thing is that people gravitate toward someone with a light heart and a big smile.  There are so many things to cry about, everybody needs a little laughter.

Is being in a very...erm...un-funny/serious mood considered boring and therefore make the people around less interested in hanging around you?

Ok...  there is also a difference between being serious and depressed.  I make it no secret on the board that I often battle long bouts of depression.  There have been times in my life where my world has gotten rather small because people chose not to be around me.  It was not for lack of love, but rather, they couldn't stand to see me hurting, and they couldn't help but get pulled down too.  People will follow the frequency that you're on.  If you are on a negative frequency and emitting negative energy, people tend to get bogged down too... and then repelled.  That's why being positive in life is so essential, because it draws like-minded people toward you.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with being serious...  but if your seriousness borders darkness...  you have to let the people you're with know that you are not at your best.

Quote from: ranemaka13
And what does it mean when a guy calls and leaves a message with a girl he's known for a while who said that she wanted to hang out and talk with him but hasn't called back in almost a month?

It means that she's gotten busy... gotten a boyfriend... lost the message... etcetera.

Quote from: Pas Rapport
Can people change or are we forever the same ?

Oh Pas... we are here to change.  The beauty of human beings is that we learn from our mistakes.  Think about it, you are not the same person you were a year ago and neither is anyone else.  If you were meaning, do we become "better" people over time... there is no real answer to that.  Truth is, some people may get worse.  It all goes back to what I was saying about tools.  We learn more tools for oursurvival, our needs... they may not be of any use to anyone else though.

Are there any 'all about the guy' girls out there?
Today women are taught to demand in bed and guys to step back and give.
Know what a dead fish is? A girl who lies on her back letting the guy do all the work and dare call him a bad lay because he didn't make her come. Sound bitter? :) I'm just a frustrated boy learning how to fuck. It's not easy.

When we make love, we really have to try hard and make our loved one feel like it's special. I'm an "all about the girl" boy, because I'm all about love.

I LOVE THIS POST!  I've found lately... since my "fucking phase" is over, that I've become a little different in the sack.  When you are randomly getting laid, as a female, I have found that it's all about the guy.  I think that's because when I was a lil promiscuous, it was largely due to a lack of self-esteem.  Therefore, I wanted to be "good" in bed.  I wanted to feel like I was worth screwing.

Now that I'm in the making love phase, it's all about the mutual pleasure.  But I must admit... it's easy to get spoiled and just lay back and enjoy...

Quote from: kotte

I prefer: "Suck my dick bitch!"  
But somehow I don't think she'd go for it.  I'm thinking that maybe she's not comfortable with taking charge.  Maybe she doesn't think her skills match up.  Maybe you should just ask her (very gently) why she's a corpse.  Seriously though... this one is difficult to answer.  When I get complacent it's usually because I'm too freaked out to do otherwise (and there are lots of different reasons for this).

Quote from: kotte
A question for you...the ideal way a guy should be in bed? Not talking technique...how should he act and touch and talk and listen?

You just answered your own question.  I think a guy should touch, talk and listen.  

The worst way for any guy to be... is "the jackhammer".  I think I've said this before... if not... watch Sex and the City for the perfect clarification.  The Jackhammer just hauls in there (whether wet or dry  :? ) and goes to town.  

I think the best sex comes from communication.  I love it when I can ask a guy what he wants and then he tells me... instead of asking me what I want to give him.  Too many guys think they know what they're doing, when in fact, they don't.  So I suggest that you ask a girl what she likes and how she likes it...  I suggest you be gentle (but that doesn't mean she can't have it rough too)...

TANGENT:  Gentle Can Be Rough

Gentle roughness can include some spanking, light biting, light hair pulling... etc.  The act itself remains gentle because it does not go too far.  It does not cross the line between self expression and potential self mutilation.  As soon as one feels fear, it no longer feels good.  You can spank and get kinky as long as it's all in the context of trust.

Anyhow, good sex is just about being open to the experience and being willing to try new things.  One more hint... never bring up what goes on in the bedroom (Call Me Daddy!)... outside of the bedroom...  That just causes way too much trouble.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
How much of your earlier life dreams are you willing to let go of for a lil simple happiness and contentment?

Am I willing to live in a trailer with 5 snot-nosed kids with my front teeth missing?  No... even if I was content with the fact that I wasn't dead, and even if I was happy that I was on welfare.  I would, however, be more than happy to live in a small town.  I'd be willing to make a comfortable living.  And I'd be willing to forego dreams of fame and fortune... just to be genuinely happy and content.
The one thing that I would not give up is my education.  No matter how much I bitch and moan about papers being due... I'm proud of the education I'm getting - it makes me feel whole.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Whats the best way to spend a quiet evening with someone close to you?

I spent this one evening once... I watched a movie with a guy, and then we went for a late night walk.  We ended up swinging on the swings of a nearby playground in the darkness, and then we lay in the dewy grass and watched the stars.  
I wouldn't mind a scenario similar to this in some foreign country...

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Can life under the roof of simple living, simple arrangements and simple desires be as fruitful in living as life when one is young and free?

I do not think that sharing my life with somone I love - my best friend - is any less fruitful than being single, and alone, and young.  Being young and free is a little overrated.  HAVING SAID THAT, I do believe that being in coupledom with someone does not mean that one must forfeit their individuality.  I would be happy living a simple happy life, instead of the one that is young and free and filled with booze, drugs, and aimless nameless faces.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Someone once told me that smiles for those older in age come in smiles on the inside more than the outside. Do you believe that?

Yes I do.  When we are young we are smiling on the outside to hide pain and mask ourselves.  Many times our smiles are ones born of insecurity and created as defense mechanisms... it's only as we get older that our smiles become more genuine.  It is only when we are older that they can be on the inside because we are so comfortable within ourselves.
Who told you that saying?

The "push and pull" method can be a little awkward.  It's too ambiguous... and when you push some girl's head down there, you run the risk of pissing her off big time.  I personally am not a fan of being pushed or pulled - but that's just me!  Kotte, what can I say?  My only advice to get around the talking issue, is to at least signal what you like.  If whatever she's doing, is being done right, it might help if you make that known (moaning, whatever).  Then at least she knows she's on the right track, and the fact that you're enjoying it gives her confidence.

Uh... Whichever one it is, it is definately a sentiment of affection.  If that had been me writing it would have meant I was giving love.  But this is coming from a girl who has been known to shout out "love me!" on a whim.

How do you show love?

This question feels like an impossibility to answer.  I could start with the basics:  I hug, I use pet names (whatever comes to mind and seems to stick), I'm a hand holder, I'm a playfighter, I'm a tickler... these are my childish love impulses.  But to be honest, a huge part of me giving love is showing someone who I really am.  That sounds self absorbed, but  I will only allow someone I truly love, into the space that I fill.  I've had one of those odd lives that doesn't seem to always match up... the people I love get the puzzle put together for them - willingly.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Do you like cats?

I have always been afraid of cats.  They are fickle and scratchy.  Having said that, I've largely outgrown my dogs (best word to describe Hank the eldest dog is... well... gooey), but I love them.  If I were to do the pet thing all over again, I'd want a cat.  They are much more independent.

In the DVD Talk thread, I've posted specs for each of the 4 films being released by Criterion in October in the Criterion News thread (look at last page) and so my question is, of the 4 new films being released, which one interests you most and why?

At first I would have said Fat Girl...  but I found the premise alone rather depressing.  Really depressing actually.  I'd have to watch that when I'm low.  So the one I'd really want to see is (like you) Eyes Without a Face.  It sounds a little twisted, which always interests me.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
What's worst: guys trying to get girls naked at a party or guys trying to get girls to do beer bongs?

It's always annoyed me when girls have gotten naked at parties.  I'd always think to myself, "get some self esteem".   As for beer bongs... I think I'm still a little proud at how well I used to do them.   :wink:

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Does life feel suffocating at all and if so, why?

I think that I find the pattern of life to be a little suffocating.  Because I truly believe that we are here to learn, I'm always aware of problems that are looming in the distance that I must "learn" from.  That gets tiresome.  So I've decided to enjoy the peaceful times in my life and not dread the future so much...  and we do have quite the looming future now don't we

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

GT!  What kind of question is this?  Ok, I'll answer it a little, but only because I'm NOT being stubborn cuz I don't want to answer it at all.
Unlike strict religion that sees problems (and their answers) in a black and white form, I don't believe in that.  It is easier to look at the world and believe that you have all the answers, that comforts some people, but it doesn't comfort me.  Black and white thinking usually means that some party is suffering from the ignorance as to their situation.  SOOOO...  I don't follow any rules.  I'm looking for the answers that create the most peace, love and joy (no I'm not a hippie).  Seriously, if you have someone who's a pedophile, I don't necessarily believe that prison and castration (extreme) would be the answer.  I think this because many people who are pedophiles know that they are sick.  They realise that there is something wrong, but our society does not let them ask for help.  Therefore, I think that in many cases pedophiles need intense psychiatric therapy, (as well as never being allowed to live near children again  :wink: )  

Quote from: kotte
When does the boy become a man and the girl a woman?

I've asked this question myself before.  I asked some random dude at some random summer job and he gave me a great answer:
When one feels as though they are.

I believe that fully.  When you feel that you can accept your status as a woman or a man, with all of it's responsibilities, that is when you recieve the title.

Quote from: Cinephile
Why does GT ask you questions in this thread when he can ask you off Xixax anytime?

Good question.  Unlike real couples (I use real very loosely), GT and I don't have the opportunity to discuss and meet each other at many different venues.  It's phone or email.  That's virtually it.  There are no after work meetings, or Friday night movies... and that is rather torturous.  So, to have yet one other venue... he includes Xixax.  My heart leaps up a little when I see he's posted to me... so really... it's just a sweet gesture.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
What does the word 'Thrindle' mean to you?

I have a 3 year-old neice named Cathrine.  She is this perfect (I suppose even when she's tweaking out and throwing tantrums) little being with a halo of curly blonde hair and blue eyes.  I love her to bits.  Because I am a dork who nicknames everyone (believe me this is true), Cathrine was given the name Thrindle.  It's endearing.  I've kept it for myself.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
Are you a Beatles or Elvis woman?

Oooooh, oh how I like this one.  Elvis woman.  Hands down.  He was the first quintessential rock star.  

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
When you put butter on your toast, are they upward motions, or downward motions?

Downwards motion.  But I'm trying to avoid butter on toast (gained a few pounds while GT was visiting).  I'm all about the light cream cheese.

Favorite color?

RED when Happy, BLUE when Depressed.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
What's your full name?

Nikki Rae Louise Wood .... Ooh, now any stalkers can find me and kill me.
I have a name that cannot be taken seriously.  When I realised that, I decided not to pursue politics.  If I google it, I get porn stars... Nikki and Wood... what was my mom thinking?  (oh, and Nikki isn't short either.  That's all I get.  No Nicole or Nicola or Nicolinus... NOTHING)

Quote from: kotte
Confidence is important, not just in relationships, in life.

How do you get it?


Um, well... to be honest,  it's because I've made so many "mistakes" in my life, tons, in fact, and I've taken what I could from each one.  I've got a li'l life experience under my belt and I think that it's made me a richer person.  

I get confidence from the fact that I've lived through some shit and come out on top.  I'm proud of who I am.  I know that I'm loving and caring and honest and genuine.  I also know my flaws (bit of a gossip, self-centered, self-indulgent {especially when it comes to depression}] which keeps me humble.

And here's the kicker: I've actually done the whole therapy thing.  I'm all about couselling and living a conscious lifestyle.  By the way, "conscious" means being introspective, understanding why you do the things you do, understanding where people are coming from, but also knowing not to take life too personally.

Basically, I got tired of fitting the mold, and have started to embrace who I really am.

Favorite relative (and why)?

I'm the black sheep of the family.  I've grown up in a family where my uncles are the big shots, their wives do what they're told, and females in general aren't supposed to be opinionated.  I'm opinionated AND loud.  I've never really had allies in my family.  So I guess I'd have to say that a couple of my female cousins are really cool... when they drop their "I'm so perfect" facades.

Kill myself.

Is there any fad that you still hold onto?

Hmm, cool question.  I can't really think of any that I still hold onto.  Probably because my sense of fashion is my own.  When everyone is trying to look pseudo-punk around here (all these girls trying to look punky but have bought there style brand new from Off the Wall), I'm the one who is always classic.  I'm a classy broad who doesn't buy into the fashion of the moment.

1.) Do blondes really have more fun?

Yeah, in that "I get to screw losers" sort of way.  I've had my hair all different colours (mom is a hairdresser), and I've found that different hair colours attract different guys.  Blonde always attracts the generic brand of local male.  Red attracts less guys, but the ones who like a little fire (bad pun).  And I find that brunette attracts a more confident 'out of the box' sort of guy.  I know that this all sounds ridiculous, but in my world it is true.

Quote from: MacGuffin
2.) What's your biggest crime (crime defined by law terms)?

I had to really think about this one... all I could come up with is the few times I stole lipstick in grade 8.  I think I'm a goody goody.  I guess underage drinking could fit in, but hey, is that really a crime?

Quote from: MacGuffin
3.) What attracts you to man first?

I was going to use the whole "I love eyes" bit... but the truth is, I really am attracted to confidence and intelligence.  I could be in a room full of guys and the one who has a loud mouth,  and brilliant mind will win me over every time.  I'm all about the brain.

Quote from: MacGuffin
4.) If you had a choice where you had to either stay with something secure or risk it all for following what your heart really desires even though it's not definite, which would you choose?

I'd definately take the risk.  I was in this "comfortable" two year relationship all because I was too insecure to leave.  Sure it was safe... but also destructive, and awful for my self esteem.  I would rather take the risk, because I know that you can't put your stock in life anyways.  When you think you've got it all figured out, it will fuck you.  

Having said this, with relationships put aside... I have found that I tend to stick to comfort out of fear.  It's only now that I'm trying to do things that scare me... but I find that I'm much happier living life this way.

Quote from: MacGuffin
5.) What could be done to improve xixax?

I've got a question myself: Is xixax going to die?  :cry:
I don't know what needs to be done to xixax, it's such a great place to be.  I actually enjoy talking to people on here... sometimes more than "real" life.  I think the cool part about this site is that everyone gets a voice, and they get to speak in a way that they may not be used to, outside of the computer.  I love it when there's a philisophical debate happening, or when someone is sharing something from school... I think xixax will improve itself come September (if it's funded...  :cry:  :cry:  :cry: )

I've got a cousin who yearns to be a child again - not me.  For some reason I am nostalgia-free.  I usually get a feeling of dread when I start travelling down memory lane.  I don't really know why.  It's not like my childhood was that bad or anything.

I've noticed a trend among my friends.  The ones that I'm closest to, or get along best with, are all trying to get life straight.  We're all trying to take what we can, with the highest degree of optimism possible.  Having said that, I remain on anti-depressants.  Haha.

In relationships, do you believe people who cheat on their spouses can make it through cheating or do you believe "once a cheater, always a cheater"? Are you afraid of death and if so, how much? Can bald women be physically attractive to you? With relationships, do you sometimes feel that you are giving too much of yourself to the other, so much your happiness depends on the other? Mothers who always nag their children a good or bad thing and why? What do you do to make yourself most comfortable with life everyday? When a guy continually apologizes for mistakes or whatever, is that a turn off to you? What actor do you think has the most self confidence off screen?

Thank you sickfins for the compliment.  After I read all of the threads ono put up (also, many thanks) I was really impressed by her.  Wow, what a gutsy, honest, raw and ballsy woman.  I can see why she was beloved, and is so missed on the board.

As I was reading, I was actually envious of her intense honesty.  Brilliant.

In relationships, do you believe people who cheat on their spouses can make it through cheating or do you believe "once a cheater, always a cheater"? Are you afraid of death and if so, how much? Can bald women be physically attractive to you? With relationships, do you sometimes feel that you are giving too much of yourself to the other, so much your happiness depends on the other? Mothers who always nag their children a good or bad thing and why? What do you do to make yourself most comfortable with life everyday? When a guy continually apologizes for mistakes or whatever, is that a turn off to you? What actor do you think has the most self confidence off screen?


Forget about these or do you find our close and personal relationship can give you crediance to skip over these questions?

Because I am not your bitch, I can answer questions as I damn well please thank-you-very-much.

But yeah, I did forget about them.   :wink:  

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
What do you do to make yourself most comfortable with life everyday?

Never shave.  I've started braiding my armpit hair...  (just kidding, too girly for that).

I have this facade about me that allows me to be a little outrageous in public.  A little bit loud, crass, a little too honest.  I mean, no one is supposed to admit that they were once a "ho" or that they met this dude over the internet and now are going for the long distance run.  I purposely admit to people things about myself that others would find embarrassing.  I figure why not?  I'm not ashamed of who I am.  And because I act this way, it puts people at ease when I'm with them.  Makes them feel alright to be who they are.  

On second thought, if I am ashamed about things in my life, I'd rather be the ones making the judgments and comments, than the other person.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

Definately.  I don't like to feel like the "mother" or "leader" in a relationship.  A part of me still wants some chase and to be kept on my toes.  A guy who constantly apologises for himself is probably insecure, or too naive to be with me.  Insecure guys and Thrindle don't work.  They end up trying to control me, and that just turns ugly.

Just the sheer fact that I can call you gay and you don't mind, makes you so much more than just gay.  It makes you a queer circus!  But seriously, I'm so kidding when I say that you are gay.  One of my best friends is gay and I am so cool with that.  In fact, I never call people gay as a derogatory statement.  There's nothing really derogatory about it as it is, in my opinion.

For a guy who has a stunning wife, gobs of cash, and I guess the "perfect" life... he still talks about switching up his career and becoming an architect because he's passionate about it.  He doesn't talk deeply about politics because he admits that he's no expert, and yet he can assert an educated opinion.  He realises how beautiful he is (on the outside) and also realises that that doesn't necessarily mean too much.  
He's humble.

Favorite female musician?

Easy.  Joni Mitchell.  I know she's not considered a true vocalist...  but her lyrics are poetry.  GT and I were talking the other day about how rock songs are formulae and not necessarily art.  You know... "hmmm...  I think I'll write a bitter love song today, or maybe a break up song, or perhaps a 'she's really hot suck my dick' song".  

Quote from: walrus, kookookajoob
Favorite President of the USA?

I'm not a history major, so I don't really like giving my opinion on this question (ooh, Thrindle gets insecure when she can't play know-it-all... fucking fraud)... but if I had to choose one it would be Franklin D. Roosevelt.  He led his country through such a bitter time period and wasn't afraid to introduce new means of solving problems.  Was he the one to introduce Keynsian economics?  If so... that's another reason why I like him.  I do know he did the whole fireside chat thing... also cool.

GT is more ticklish than I am...  If I grab his sides he just freaks out (but then again, I think I pinch too hard and hurt him).
I am ticklish...  but he never goes for the armpits (now I've finished myself because he never knew this, and I see him in a month).

GT - Him and I could pass the time.
Books - I would love to find everything that Ernest Hemmingway ever wrote.
Pedicure supplies - My feet would get yucky from going barefoot so I'd need my pedicure supplies to keep my heels smooth and my toes french manicured.
Thrindle Jr. - Maybe I'd bring my neice because she's basically perfect.
Birth Control - One Thrindle Jr. is more than efuckingnough.

And since my friend didn't really listen, which I can understand as he had his own problems, here we go:

It's the same rutine as with everybody it seems. Of course I love(d?) this girl who doesn't love me back. Which has been the situation for quite some time now, and as I tend to fall in love generally once a year (usually doomed from the start; with one of my friends), it's starting to "wear off", all the trying without results that is. So, I decided for myself some weeks ago, well, there's this other girl I know, and have known since I was 4 years old, who I know has been in love with me. So I started seriously responding to her flirting, which she seemed to appreciate, I started (and believe me, you probably know, this is no easy feat) to push the girl I really love(d?) farther and farther away from my thoughts. Fucking hard for one who always fall in love, never out of it. So...(and I know I'm the idiot of this piece, and I don't expect pity) tonight we went to this little get-toghether at her house, and as we sit there talking, drinking, without really anything to do (there were about seven people there in total), someone casually mentions her boyfriend. Her boyfriend. And of course, since you never know what you've got until it's gone, everything dawned on me at that second. Every damn thought, every maybe, and every (until then) second option, everything; every asshole thought of "well if it doesn't work out with 'number one' then at least I've got something to fall back on". Christ, this girl is more than I'll ever deserve, after just thinking this way. She now had a boyfriend. Not me, some other boy. Friend. After being spoonfed a sample of practially everything in her father's liqourcabinet, the highlight of the night came whilst throwing it all up, while she and her newly arrived boyfriend embraced each other in bed. This was two hours ago, and now I can't even remember what I was going to ask you. I guess all I really want is a reaction. Pretty please.

Reaction One: Well written.
Reaction Two: You are such a Brit (you say 'whilst').
Final Reaction: Oh Shit Fuck and Balls.

Wow I'm trying to think of something to say here; one of my magic cliches that shed that tiny bit of clarity on a situation... sort of like a horoscope.   All I can come up with here is... shit.  Ever thought of throwing your balls on the line and telling the-girl-you've-known-since you-were-four what you realised tonight?  Hey, it might work, it might not.  I think the major thing with this situation, other than your pride being bitten, is that you've learned a whole lot tonight.  What you've learned might be your opportunity to make this a little better, if not with the girl, then in finding a new one.  
I'm a big fan of getting real with your emotions and seeing what happens.  Hey, I've been applauded, seduced, burned - you name it -  I haven't died yet.  Yes, you might be fucking with the universe if you tell this girl, "Look, I never knew how amazing you were, until I realised that you can't be in my life", but we all fuck with the universe every day in worse ways (like spitting negativity at each other).  Perhaps your moment of conscience and clarity was fleeting, if this is the case, at least you are starting to realise that it's a new type of person that you seek.

I know I've been all over the map with my reply... but it's really simple.  If you like the girl, let her know.  Be honest, give it.  She's not going to be angry, and I doubt a rejection would be of the negative kind.  She's liked you too long for you to be completely obliterated.  You never know what may happen... He could very well be her second best

Cheers

Thank you for kind words and reply. Actually I'm a norwegian  :)

You know, I actually did "tell" her. I looked at her. I tried to say everything whilst we locked gazes. My eyes are apparently the only balls I've got. She just answered me with "You idiot, too late. Now I'm into this, and fuck if I'm not enjoying it, and already comfortable. Could've been great, you idiot. Too late. Sorry." That was her look. That's what I got, and what I deserve. Cowardice halted me speaking, and so what answer could I possibly expect, but one to match my question? You should hear her sing. So, let's say I told her, and it did work, and I got her, not he. Then how the hell could I live with it? He'd feel just like I do now, or worse (since he's probably in it deeper than me by now), and that's a guilt I don't ever wanna cope with. The opposite has become a kind of therapy for me, as each of my crushes have gone and found themselves some guy; not to go on trying in vain, to the ultimate goal of pleasing myself, but rather to try to see how them being together made her happy. I think I'll leave my honesty and confrontation back there with that look, as even if I could, I wouldn't want to ruin any relationship. And like you said, I've learnt. Hopefully. (But as I know myself, probably not). I know the drill by now. This'll last some time, then I'll be violantly jerked out of it, and the cycle will start again, only (hopefully) this time I'll change a few things along the way. The one fear of mine is: The reason I only fall in love with friends is my insane need to know someone for me to really fall (into love) hard. Now with friends, I see them all the time, and most I've known forever, so it's easy. And it always has been easy. But right now, I'm fresh out of friends to fall in love with. I've been trough them all, and now I'll either have to take on the guys (which they'll probably not appreciate), or do the insanely bold step of venturing outside the circle. Meaning: 1) I kill off my cowardly side (which is not and easy feat, you have no idea of how much havoc it's caused; godzillian I tell you), or 2) I stick to gazing and exchanging looks. Which I doubt is solid ground to base a relationship on.

Damn straight it does.   Here's the thing, Withnail grabbed some balls and it didn't turn out "so well" but he can't read the future... it could have been the perfect circumstance but he doesn't know it yet  But I'm a huge believer in the Universe.  It is better than fate.  Have you ever noticed that in every moment we are actually ok?  It's the stupid stories we tell ourselves along the way that make life difficult.

I have a feeling that when Withnail least expects it he'll find his girl.  It's funny because we all find someone... but it's completely out of the blue.

I was actually comfortable with being alone.  I was enjoying being alone (I realised that I was good company :? ).  And then I went online one day...

I hate the way I "sound" on this board.  Always trite and cliche... but why stop now?

Withnail, the person will find you.  If they don't, and affection is one sided, it wouldn't have worked anyways.  It's like a miscarriage, the baby wouldn't be healthy if it was born.  In the same way, your love would not work.

Hang in there right now.  Seriously, I assumed I was done with love.  I just didn't click with anyone, or I'd find someone I was interested in... and they'd want sex, but no relationship.  I really did just give it up.  Completely.  

Instead of focusing outwards, I looked within.  I did a lot of soul searching and I actually made a long list (that I wrote down) of qualities that were necessary for me to be in a relationship with someone.  I thought that was ridiculous but my counsellor recommended it.  Anyways, as I started getting clear about what I was looking for, I started to draw people, who fit my description, toward me.  It didn't work with them (obviously) but I recognized that my standards were changing.  So were my interests.  I really took the time to find out what I liked.  I realised that I am a voracious reader, and I truly love movies.  I love coffee chats with girlfriends, and I love meeting new people.  I love my job, even though it's not anyone's version of success.  I love long drives on sunny days with cigarettes and tunage.  There are so many things that I had yet to discover about myself.  And now I've found someone who shares all of my interests and fits my description of a great person.  

Seriously Withnail, hang in there.  Get to know you.  Be your own best company... I think that is one of the most gratifying lessons I've learned.

And I'm sorry for what I'm about to say because it is so wrong when I'm trying to cosole you, and it will probably annoy everyone...  but...

I disagree. she's wickedly smart and honest in every genuine way and the fact she has the bravado to take on such a large thread of her own and perform with confidence and intelligence only destroys the thinking she is misrepresenting herself. No way. The only thing I bug her about is not slamming all the people who give her shit for this thread harder than she does. She plays along and doesn't let it to get to her. Better person than me. Oh, but she is represented in one sense on this board and it is because only a few people here really know how gorgeous she looks along with these brains and even if they've seen a couple of her pictures, its only an inch measured to the real deal.

Ok, first let me say that this is my first post in this thread but I have been reading it ever since it got started. I really think that Thrindle is very wise and smart in not just what she says but how she presents herself to the other xixaxers on this board. I have been hesitant to ask any questions, worried that they have already been asked and redirected to the question as well as the answer. I have a slightly bad memory sometimes. Anyway, I think it is utterly sweet to see two human beings connect such as GT and Thrindle connect in such a magnificent way. I say that statement with complete sincerity and I hope for all the best in the many years to come. Now some will probably speculate that I am maybe sucking up to one of them, or whatever, but I genuinely give my best wishes to both of them. GT is a lucky man and Thrindle is a lucky gal, because I also think that GT's posts on here, even though I might not agree with all of them I respect his opinion, they are all very well written and he seems like a really great guy overall.
Moving on, this is for withnail, I went through almost the exact same thing. Although, I think the girl that I was involved with was more forgiving. Probably because she was and still is a good natured and positive person. She wrote me a long letter explaining how she felt towards me and she told me she did deeply care for me, but as a friend. (I am now getting a flashback to that scene in Magnolia during the seminar. "She told me she just wanted to be friends") Damn it, I'm rambling again...I accepted the letter and was hurt for a little while and then became comfortable with us just being really close friends, we are still close to this day which  is nice because I've known her since she was in the 7th grade and I was in the 8th and I am now currently in my start of my second of college.
Next thing I wanted to say: Thrindle is right and I am the proof. For months during my first year at college I was in a mild depression. I became slightly desperate and came on to a few woman I met at school. The goal was to try to find someone to hold. But it seems like that goal is slightly unattainable, so I threw away that idea and decided to just be on my own. I then became comfortable with being alone and doing things by myself, such as going out to the movies and eating at restaurants. I wasn't depressed about the situation that I put myself inThen at the end of july, last month, I met the most inventive and creative woman in my life, online and we have been happy ever since. So, withnail, be patient and your angel will come and it will happen when you least expect it.

Sincerely,
With much Respect and Happiness to all,

Do you have a list a things you want to do before you leave this earth (or leave your particular body if you believe in the whole reincarnation idea), if so what is on the list, if not what are the top ten things you want to do before dying?
Even though you are a Elvis Woman what Beatles tunes do you listen to on occasion?
If you had to be in film business, what profession would you most likely choose?
Please choose a certain character from a film or a character from pop culture history that you think defines who you are as a human being...Either that or...
What character from a movie or a character from pop culture history would you like be interested in being if you had the chance?....
And the screenwriter in me would like to know if you would object to having me write a monologue one woman show based on your ideas that you have expressed in this thread? (I would message you the final monologue before doing anything with it of course).

What I was trying to do was pull of the cute bashful side of me; guess it didn't work.

No, it was good times.  That's just Cinephile's way of showing affection.   :wink:

Quote from: SiliasRuby
Do you have a list a things you want to do before you leave this earth?

I used to have big dreams.  Elaborate plans of life in the South of France.  I used to imagine myself as editor of Vanity Fair magazine.  I used to see myself with money and class and success and style.  
I was always told that I'd do great things in my life, but somehow I never quite believed them.  It is not that I lack ambition, it is just that my idea of life success has changed.  No longer do I monitor a life well lived by the amount of power and money one has attained.  In fact, I rarely "put myself in the future" because I'm learning to embrace the present (not let any of those negative stories with a future setting, creep in).  There's something in me that only believes in the moment.  Our memories are cheap we can never truly recall the past, and we can never grasp the future.  That's the Universe's way of making us live, now.  
So what do I want to do before I die?
I want to have a couple true friends.  People that love me, and that I love.
I want to have a secure relationship with somone, I want a companion, and a marriage.
I want a job that makes me feel worthwhile.  A job that creates light in the world instead of adding to the darkness.
I want my voice to be heard one day on issues I feel are important.
I do want to drink coffee in France, and tan on the beaches of Spain, and eat real Italian food in Italy.
I want to be content with my life and enjoy the little things.
I want to live life peacefully and not rush and worry all the time.
I want to discover a talent or passion that I have... that I didn't know was there.
I want to live with GT in Sumas, or become an American if that's what it takes  :cry:
Hehehe, and one day I want to take dance classes and learn to really move like a sexy vixen.

Even though you are a Elvis Woman what Beatles tunes do you listen to on occasion?

If you had to be in film business, what profession would you most likely choose?

An actress of Meryl Streep quality.   8)

Quote from: SiliasRuby
Please choose a certain character from a film or a character from pop culture history that you think defines who you are as a human being...Either that or...
What character from a movie or a character from pop culture history would you like be interested in being if you had the chance?....

I'm really not good at this one.  It reminds me of when I was asked if I had a hero... and I realised that I have none.
There was a time when I would have been a little bit of Marilyn.  Damaged and beautiful.
Then there's a little of Susan Sarandon.  Activist and strong willed woman.
Then perhaps a dash of Drew Barrymore.  On the quest, and a little bit corny.
For good measure I want a touch of Sophia Loren.  Sensuality and class.

Quote from: SiliasRuby
And the screenwriter in me would like to know if you would object to having me write a monologue one woman show based on your ideas that you have expressed in this thread? (I would message you the final monologue before doing anything with it of course).

Seriously though, do it up.  I'm honored and undeserving.

Sigh,  GT does live in Michigan... I, however, live in British Columbia Canada.  It is a 40 hour drive from Michigan...  opposite ends of the spectrum.  And due to circumstances... when we want to make a go of this, one of us has to forfeit their native country.  I'm so proud to be Canadian... but it looks like I'll be the one leaving.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite game show?

I detest gameshows.  I remember my sister loving them when I was younger (oh god, the Price is Right!) and I would just lose my mind with boredom.  I always thought that the people on them were sort of pathetic.  Don't really know why.

Is the glass half full, or half empty?

Today the glass is half empty.  I'll indicate Thrindle's neuroses.  You see... I take these pleasant little pills every day that make me... mmm... perky.  Truth is, I fight depression and anxiety, and these pills make it so I'm not having panic attacks while driving, and listening to depressing music until 4am until I finally nod off and am dreaming about how worthless and useless life is anyways.   Lately I've been feeling so good, I've been forgetting to take them.  Today I crashed a little.  Ah, but one "side effect" of the crash, is being able to write excessively well, and have the sex drive of a sixteen year old boy.  Unfortunately, I don't have anyone to take this urge out on, so I'm typing far too much information into the Ask Thrindle thread.
Yes... I will be going back on the meds.  Cheers.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
What was the last fight you were in like?

I had a family war the other day.  I went "unconcious" and reacted to something my dad said.  I got really mad and started yelling and cursing.  That hasn't happened in soooooooooo long.  It was odd.  Note to Thrindle, think before freaking.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
What's the worst storm you've ever been in?

I was in a house boat in the middle of Shuswap Lake.  It was thunder and lightning, and our engine was dead.  I thought we were going to die.  I was 9 years old and was petrified of boats for years after that.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Do you listen or wait to talk?

Sometimes I get so excited that I'm an interrupter.  Other times I'm so quiet and content with just listening that people think I've tuned out.  I think I'm a healthy mix of both.

Post by: Chest Rockwell on August 20, 2004, 06:18:20 PM
OK, so I'm young (11th grade) as you already know. I've been dating this girl for a while now and I seriously feel my happiest when with her and hate to even imagine the possibility of either of us leaving. Good thing is I think she feels the same way, or close to it. With that said, my question, ore or less, is how do I know when I love her? It's been 3 months today, and I've said the three words to her before. It was at her house and we were with each other embracing, making out and all around enjoying each other, and for the last few hours of my being there I had been trying to say it, then finally a minute before I leave I embrace her from behind and say softly in her ear 'Danielle, I love you' in a pleading, desperate way that shows I hate to leave her. But then she said it back to me in a light-hearted way, and it sounded rather mocking. I'm changing questions: as I type this I know I love her, but now what I'm asking is am I in over my head? I don't know how seriously she takes this relationship (I can't see her being terribly upset if it were to end), but am I, at 16, too young to be constantly thinking of her like this?

Oh, and I remember asking you one time, how do I know when I've gone too far (with a girl)? and you responded that she'll push away or something like that. Well so one time I impressed my self in my boldness and during one visit was able to go up her shirt, and then, get this, get one breast naked. The thing is, after I got it nude and was so proud of myself/turned on she pressed really close to me, which I at first thought meant something good, but I soon realized she was just trying to keep me from seeing her exposed breast (and I wasn't able to). So is this a normal reaction, or should I never try this again? I think she might have inwardly rejected my boldness, but didn't want to make it uncomfortable by telling me to stop. Just a theory. Anyway, what are your opinions?

Not to step on Thrindle's toes or anything, here, but I thought I'd interject.  eward - there's a lot to be said for a lot of foreplay and a lot of lube.  Make sure she's relaxed and comfortable, too.  That's the best you can hope for.  For some girls it is gonna hurt at first.  Nothing you can do to avoid it, but you can ameliorate it.  I say take a nice long visit to Shady Thicket for a visit with Colonel Angus.

And as for Chest's problem, it just makes me sort of glad I'm not 16 anymore.  I'd just say to you, Chest, you're just lucky to have a relationship like that, so just enjoy it, and don't analyze it too much.  You probably are in over your head, but that's not a bad thing.  Just how it is.  When we're in high school, we all think we're gonna know these people forever.  But that is only three or four years of your life.  When you're that age, it seems like a lot, but it's not, and most of the time, people move on.  So, roll with it.  You've done what you can, really, so just relax.  She's probably just as nervous as you about the sex thing, so just try to make her comfortable, and COMMUNICATE with her.  I mean, she is your friend, right, so that should be easy?  And watch the end of American Beauty.  You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure.  But don't worry.  You will someday.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Will women ever able to be as promiscuous as men with sex and maintain social and also self respect?

Off Topic Rant:  So I'm looking at The National Post newspaper today.  I look at the cover.  There are a bunch of cheerleaders for the beach volleyball Olympic event in Athens.  The headline is something like "T&A in Athens" then the caption says something to the effect of "Greek cheerleaders provide eye candy for the Olympic Games"...  I just frowned and shook my head.  Out of all that is news in this world, that is what was on the cover.  How far have women come?  Not far enough.
Until the mindset of society changes, women will never be respected for their promiscuity.  They will never have the respect gained from being the virginal bride.  It's really that simple.  Until men are not threatened by female sexuality, and until women no longer buy into the "slut" story, things will remain as is: one sided, and hypocritical.  
It's sad because we teach our young girls that they have to be sexy, but not sexual.  Now, explain to me how that is actually possible considering that a sexy girl who doesn't have sex, is a prude, and a sexy girl who has sex, is a slut.  Double edged sword.  All a bunch of bullshit if you ask me.
And to answer about the "self respect" issue... it goes hand in hand with the hypocrisy above.  Because women are not respected for being promiscuous, and because we are always taught that our self worth comes with the men who want us... we will never truly respect ourselves unless we feel that we have other people respecting us as well.  I'd love it if no one in the world demanded the opinion of others to enforce their opinion of themselves.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob

Sure, if you want to have nothing to eat, no home of your own, and no money EVER.  Note to xixaxers... My parents cut me off financially today.  20-year-old Thrindle is now entering the land of Student Loans, Student Debt, and Student Thrift.  Apparently they do too much for me already...  I suppose it's true... they do let me live with them and all...

Quote from: Chest Rockwell
I know I love her, but now what I'm asking is am I in over my head?  Am I, at 16, too young to be constantly thinking of her like this?

Oh Chest... I'm giving you a massive internet hug right now.  Not out of "oh I'm so wise-ness" but of "hold on it's ok it's all good-ness".  Seriously, as Ono said... yes you are in over your head.  But that's the way first love goes.  Let me put it this way; you have just walked into a relationship that you have never experienced before.  You are going to probably give it your all, love unconditionally, and feel with an intensity that you never knew existed.  The beauty of first love is the newness of it all.  It hasn't been tainted with heartache or pain.  Everything is perfect.  Unfortunately, with first love comes insecurity.  You are scared of losing her.  Scared she doesn't love you the same.  Scared you are going to break up.  Perhaps right now is not the time to be worrying about how she feels about you... you know that she wants you, because she stays.  Maybe now is the time to be enjoying everything that is happening.  My advice is to soak up every moment and kiss and first, that comes your way.  Talk to her, be genuine, be kind, and be open.  Be who you are.  I wish you luck and my only hope for you is that you enjoy every second of her.  Focusing too much on the negative can be a self-fulfilling prophecy.  I know this because I've been there... and done that...

Hmmm… I’ve been thinking long and hard about this one and here is what I’ve come up with.  Women are insecure about their breasts!  I am totally insecure about my breasts.  I would live a much happier life if I could wear a sexy bra full-time (mind you, my back would break).  So perhaps your girl was feeling insecure about the boob factor.  Breasts come in all different shapes and sizes (as we all know) and I remember being incredibly insecure about my own at 16 because I thought that they didn’t look ‘right’.  Turns out, none of the girls I know think that theirs look ‘right’ either.  Point is, she could just be shy about her body.  I’m guessing the fact that she didn’t pull her shirt back down (or whatever) meant that she was semi alright with the situation.  But because I’m a firm believer that girls don’t typically feel comfortable saying no, my further thoughts would be to just ask her, “You OK?”.  Two words.  They make all the difference!  By asking her if she’s alright you’ve established that you aren’t trying to push her, and that you actually care.  Getting intimitate with someone can be pretty nervewracking… so it’s probably best to just be really honest.  I think that you can probably try your maneouver again without too many problems…  but to be on the safe side maybe try a more direct approach to how she’s feeling.  Because chances are she’s feeling pretty good, but she’s also a little scared.

First of all Eward, her problem is not abnormal.  Thinking that it’s abnormal places a lot more pressure on an already sensitive subject.  There are so many factors involved with this problem that it’s not as simple as being abnormal.
For example, let’s take a look at the psychology.  All of your friends are having sex.  There is a lot of pressure right now to do it, because everyone else is.  Are you positive your girlfriend wants to have sex, and she’s not saying she does, just to please you?  I ask this because if a girl is tense before having sex, it can make it extremely difficult to perform the act itself.  I’m going to assume that your girlfriend is a virgin and isn’t so educated in the sex department.  
With being a virgin comes the physicality of the situation.  I’ll be honest with you, the first time I had sex, I was in a lot of pain.  I was not mentally or physically prepared, although I thought I was at the time.  I’m sure that you two have discussed your situation if you are both willing to try again.  But has she made it clear how scary losing her virginity is?  For this reason, my advice is to take it super slow.  If it’s penetration you are after, a lot of foreplay is necessary.  I’m talking about foreplay that goes beyond the usual make-out session.  You have to get her really comfortable, really relaxed, and really ready.  As Ono said, lube is also super important.  
Another thought that comes to mind is the masturbation factor.  Have you and your girl talked about this?  If she does masturbate, has she told you what pleases her?  Has she been vocal about what turns her on?  This is super important!!!!!!  Sometimes we think we know what’s good… and then we realize we can be better.  (I realize that I’m focusing more on her pleasure right now, but that’s only because it seems necessary if you two want to… ummm… Get it on)
There’s one more thing I was thinking about.  It’s not unusual for a female to have a dense hymen.  You know… the membrane that covers the opening of the vagina.  This membrane is usually torn or stretched with the onset of sexual activity.  If her hymen is dense, she should go to the doctor.  No female ever wants to spread their legs for the "duck" but, if you want to have sex, you don’t have a choice.  She may need a small medical procedure to unblock the tissue and therefore make sex easier.  This isn’t uncommon and if this seems to be the matter, best bet is to see the Doc.
Sorry Eward if I seemed heavy handed on this reply, but it’s just an important issue.  You don’t want to get to the point where she is too sore or scared to try anymore.  That’s why this isn’t a matter of rushing, it’s a matter of care.  You two will manage… you just need to be aware of how each other is feeling.

How many days have you skipped school? (Elementary through high school, just estimate...unless you know)

They should have skipped me a grade in school.  I was always so fucking bored.  By grade twelve I had had it.  Totally sick of it, and extremely depressed.  I'd look at my History and Comp Civ teacher Mr. Sherriff and I'd say:
"Sherriff, I can't do it today.  I just can't sit here and waste my time.  So instead of disrupting the entire class like you know I can do... I'm going to get up and go to Starbucks.  I'll see you this afternoon in History."
Then Sherriff would say:
"Luttmer, sign out at the office."

Long story short.  I've skipped tons of school.  By grade twelve I was never really there.  Oddly enough I still got a Provincial Exam Scholarshipl.

In what ways do you see yourself as new age and in what ways traditional?

I'm new age in the sense that I'm liberal.  Very liberal.  One of my bible thumping professors last semester enjoyed saying that I was extraordiarily liberal and atheistic.  Little did he know that God exists more in my world than his.  But whatever.  I'm also new age in the sense that I'm sort of utopian in my thought.  I'm one of those truth seekers.
But I'm also very traditional.  I love Simplicity.  I love Sunday dinners with the family, the quaint life of husband wife cat kids.  Notice the cat comes first because babies are 10-15 years down the road.  I don't know!  A part of me just wants 'traditional' wants.  I want things that are stable and real.  Fuck money or fame, happiness is so much deeper.

I could live in sweatpants.

I know you're saying that jokingly but I'm not a fan.  It breaks my heart at the thought of ever leaving Canada.  It really does.  I'll forever be a Canadian girl...  I have no room for Yank.  Don't rub it in that I'll be the border jumper.

Ever think I could get you to become a true Green Bay Packer fan?

My first response was a big HELL NO!  But after thinking about it... it could happen.  In highschool P.E. my favorite game was football.  Betcha didn't know that.

Everyone else gets relationship advice from you, so baaaaa.

I was dating this girl (yes, like I said in that other thread somewhere, she posted on here as myadopteddaughter).  Things were going more than fine.  I really connected with her, and it was the first relationship I have had where we both trusted each other almost completely and were very much there for each other.  

But, school time is rolling around and she just graduated high school.

So, going into my senior year (and her freshman year of college) she decided that it'd be hard for us to keep in touch.  She'd only be attending community college not far form here, and she'd be working a job during the week and an occasional weekend job.  After this year, she'd be moving to Atlanta to got to college there, anyway.  She told me she wanted to seperate because now is a time in her life when things were happening for her, and she wanted to be single and go into these things, untethered by the resposibility of a boyfriend, I guess.  So, she was telling me the whole "It's not me, it's you" lines, and telling me "You were perfect as a boyfriend, but now this is my decision."  So I offered my support to stick with her through this.  But she insists that we separate so that I wouldn't spend my senior year tied down to the same girlfriend (but it's not like I'll find anyone special at this school, anyway).  

No matter what I say to her, she sticks to her resolve.  She tells me that it was selfish of her, but sometimes people need to think of themselves more often, especially me.  Apparently, I care too much for others and not enough for myself.  I usually just go with change, but when she wanted to break up I was so OK with it that it scared me a little while afterwards.  Why was I so comfortable wrapping up our relationship, one of the best I ever had?  That was probably the wrong thing to think.

So I want to talk to my friends about it, I figure they'll be open and listen to my problems, since I listen to theirs whenever they have any.  But everytime I start they stop me and say "Is this about Sarah?  Dude, she dumped you.  Get over it."  So ever since we broke up, I've had no means of purging my feelings, which makes me bottle it up, and I seem much more aggravated about it than I would be if some people I knew would listen.  But that also shows me how selfish people don't give a damn about anyone else.

For instance, I evem have a friend who's girlfriend is going to college and he bitches about how he'll miss her, but he and her will wait til after college and get back together.  But when I told him it was hard for me to break up with Sarah, they're like "How?  Just get over it."

So thank you for reading this, if you did, I feel bitchy for writing this, but it was hard to hold in since no one wanted to hear it.  

I guess the question is...should I be more about myself?  Should my actions revolve more around me?  It just seems that if I trust someone, I only put myself on a pedestal to be let down.

Thank you for your time.

I'm already an expert on the Holocaust.  I've had a sick fascination since about grade 4.  

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
At this moment, what song prolly bests describes your state of mind?

Frustrated and depressed.  I have no money.  I never do anymore.  I can't even afford to smoke.  My student loan monthly interest payments are going to fuck me.  My income is shit.  How am I supposed to move out next year?  Not gonna happen.  I feel completely stuck in one spot.  And I'm not happy where I am.  I'm not happy with friends, with family, with myself.  I feel stuck.  I feel like a martyr victim and I've got a lot of hostility toward the world.  
Need to snap out of it.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Any movies coming out at the "end of september" you want to see?

Honestly, I don't care what we see, just as long as we're seeing it.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Going against the grain, do you always feel "different" than everyone else or has your way of life become too normal to really differentiate?

I feel perpetually different.  I always have.  I long to be completely isolated and alone, and yet I argue with myself that I am social.  I am far too self analytical for my own good.  People don't understand that.  I've never been able to float through life... I tend to drudge.  At this point in my life I'm wondering if my need to be alone is even healthy.  I just want to get my shit figured out.  I don't have time to pretend that I'm happy at a bar, or happy talking about stupid little things that have no consequence.  
I ask you:  Is this a normal way to feel?  Or am I just being a depressed little bitch?

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
If you had to learn one instrument, what would it be?

I already have some idea as to how to play the guitar.  I'd want to play it properly and well.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet

You would be an amazing social worker.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
If you had the money to buy the clothes, what personal style could you see yourself adapting into (if different from the one you have now)?

I would have gorgeous underwear!  And designer jeans.  I would own boat neck Cashmere sweaters and Gucci shoes.  Oh man, if I could dress in expensive clothes I'd look like... Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama"

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Said a lot of stuff about a lot of things.


First and foremost... I'm an asshole.  I never deny that I'm completely self absorbed.  I called a friend today... I had left my jacket (with Visa card) at her house.  It had been a couple of days since we talked... anyways I called her and got the machine.  She called me back from the Island.  She was on holidays.  I forgot.  I woke her up at 9:00am from her vacation to ask her about a fucking jacket (and beloved visa card).  I digress...

Well Walrus... I must say about your friends... I've experienced the same.  I would think that, unlike you, mine were warranted to not want to listen to me anymore.  After my first boyfriend and I broke up (we had been best friends for years), I was a fucking mess.  So depressed and fucked up taht my friends got tired of dealing with depressed Nikki... Can't say I blame them.  I got tired of myself.
In your situation though... I think that you are dealing with one of the drawbacks of being a guy - the feeling factor.  I know that me and my girlfriends sit around talking about feelings, the meaning of life, spirituality, regularly over coffee.  I believe, however, that men do not do the same.  Whereas women sit and talk about how everything makes them feel, guys are more apt to be like, "Hey dude, let's go do such-and-such".  That's my theory at least.  SO your friends being not-so-willing to listen might be a drawback of this.  It could also be that they don't know how to deal with your heartbreak, so they would rather not discuss it.  I know that it hurts, but I don't think you should take it personally.
As for your girl...
You know what, I've read her posts on here before, and she seems very self-aware.  I have a feeling that she's not lying to you when she realises she needs to be alone.  I think it's perfect that you didn't take it personally.  It's not actually about you.  The best thing I ever did for myself was be single for a year and a half.  I did my most growing, and dealt with a whole lot of shit.  I could never have done that if I was concentrating on somebody else.  Maybe she recognizes that both you and her need to be concentrating on yourselves.  If that's the case, I say keep in touch with this one because she probably is an amazing person.
And to answer your initial question... maybe she realises that you need to be on your own and work out some things for yourself.  Walrus, everyone needs some time to be completely selfish.  Fuck everybody!  And I mean that (not literally).  If we were all meant to be perfectly in harmony with one another, we'd be telepathic.  We are not telepathic.  We are all on our own journies... we can walk beside each other, but if we hold on too tight, we trip up.

Start being more selfish.  You are not in charge of anyone else's feelings but your own.

Cheers.

Hey Thrindle, so I took your advice and yesterday I felt her breasts up some and then suddenly had an urge to see what she thought so i covered herself back up and pushed her away gently so I could ask, "Danielle...are you...OK...with all of this?" and then she looked at me for the longest time, apparently thinking about it. I caressed her arms a bit, to try and make her feel comfortable and let her know that I'd be fine with whatever she says. At one point she commented "that's a hard question", and then at some other point told me, quite honestly, "I feel like I should say no [her family is a rather conservative Lutheran family]...but this other half of me..." and never really answered the question until much much later that night, after I was already back home and we were on the phone. I told her that these last few weeks I've come to really love her and hate to imagine us apart, so the action is more or less just natural. She agreed, and said the thing is that she feels so comfortable with me that she doesn't mind it at all. It's just that she feels guilty afterwards when she thinks about it and her conservative family and equally conservative friends, but really thinks it natural while it's happening. I told her I would never want her to feel guilty about it, so I could stop. She still never really told me what I need to hear, a yes or no, until even later on. It was almost right before we got off the phone when she told me it was OK. So there you go, she was obviously really conflicted over the whole thing, and I had previously thought it would take her more or less 2 seconds to answer it. What really made me feel nice and gooey was when she told me that she feels ultra-comfortable with me, and that if it were any other person she probably wouldn't feel the same way. Also, she told me she loves me too, this time seriously. I told her, 'it's sad because it's probably inevitable this will have to end  eventually, but for now it just feels so...' and then she finished for me: 'nice, I know...' It was a good day, hehe.

AND CONGRATULATIONS!  I have this massive smile on my face because you did the ballsiest thing I've heard in a while.  Isn't it funny what growing up conservative will do to you...  instinctually you feel one way, but everything is awash with guilt.

I couldn't afford them.  Finally, with all the stress attached to money problems and lack of cigarettes, I got the best advice ever:

"Nikki, you are already so stressed.  I know you can find the money, just go buy a pack of smokes and relax.  You can quit later so stop punishing yourself now."  (Obviously GT)

He's right.  I will quit.

But smoking in general is disgusting.  It's an awful habit, and I always thought I wouldn't get hooked.  But honestly, I love my cigarettes, especially with coffee...

OK, so I had two friends of mine fill out an exam of what they thought about me for a communications class. Most of  the questions are simple description words with them checking a responce to what best fits me. The choices are Not at All, Slighty, Moderately, Rather Well and Extremely Well. So, with every word of description, they put what answer they thought was best for me. Could you tell me what you think of these answers and then answer each one yourself? OK, here it goes:

1.) Self Confident: a.) Extremely Well b.) Extremely Well
2.) Tactful: a.) Not at All b.) Not at all
3.) Irritable: a.) Slightly b.) Moderately
4.) Quiet: a.) Not at all b.) Not at all
5.) Serious: a.) Not at all b.) Slightly
6.) Energetic: a.) Slightly b.) Rather Well
7.) Cooperative: a.) Moderately b.) Not at all
8.) Prejudiced: a.) Extremely Well b.) Not at all

OK, so I had two friends of mine fill out an exam of what they thought about me for a communications class. Most of  the questions are simple description words with them checking a responce to what best fits me. The choices are Not at All, Slighty, Moderately, Rather Well and Extremely Well. So, with every word of description, they put what answer they thought was best for me. Could you tell me what you think of these answers and then answer each one yourself? OK, here it goes:


1.) Self Confident: Rather Well
2.) Tactful: Extremely Well
3.) Irritable: Slightly
4.) Quiet: Rather Well
5.) Serious: Extremely Well
6.) Energetic: Rather Well
7.) Cooperative: Extremely Well
8.) Prejudiced: Not at all

10.) Leader: Extremely Well
11.) Selfish: Not at All (Mr. I'll Pay Your Phone Bill Honey)

Well Brad, I never watched it.  I don't think it was on in Canada, but even if it was, I probably wouldn't have watched it.  The folks at MTV, or MuchMusic (in Canada), all seem to be the same.  We indulge in television that reduces our standards to that of a fuckwit.  Further more, we are being brainwashed into believing that Fuckwiticism (yes, it is a word), is actually something to strive for.

I don't know if this is asking for advice or ranting, but I told you the story earlier (about myadopteddaughter) and things since then have just gotten much weirder.

She got in a huge fight with her mom and decided to move to her dad's until she would be attending college in Atlanta in the following year.  Well, I hardly see her now because she's either at work, or community college.  Now, the thing is, both are during the day and don't get out until late.  So I can never see her as much.  Maybe once a week when I'm lucky.  So she's hanging out with these new friends she's making and I'm glad she's making friends, but I'm jealous as hell that all these people get to be with her and I can't...people I don't even know.  

All I really want is to see her, but contacting her is nigh impossible.  She doesn't have a phone of her own, but her dad has a cell phone.  So of course, this father of hers that I've met like once, and I'm pretty sure he knows I'm the ex-boyfriend, so I don't want to be calling him up even though she said to call her at that.  I've tried once but not so likely to try that again.

So, of course, it's obvious what I need to do.  I need to give up and move on, which of course was the idea last time.  But I still can't.  I'm having a bitch of a time getting over her because if I ever see her, we both start out acting plutonic and don't touch much, but we always gravitate towards each other and it becomes like it used to be.

If I could get a more definitive answer or anything from her, I might be ok, but I don't know...it's all just horrible.  I can always be pretty much over her, but when I think about her, I lose all the progress I made in trying to get over her.  I know years from now I might look back at myself and laugh and think about how immature I was, but I'm not concerned with the future, I'm a little concerned in resolving the present.

So, I guess...what would you do if you were me?  Don't be ideal and tell me what to do, tell me what YOU would do in my situation so that I don't feel like I'm being too melodramatic.

Will you really?  I don't think you're being immature at all.  I think you're being human.  I think you're feeling like shit.  That is valid.  You want honesty Walrus?  Your situation sucks.  It just does.  But yet again Thrindle has been there...  so...

You really want to know what I would do?  Because I will tell you and admit my "weakness".  I'd do exactly what you are doing right now (and I think you already know that).  I'd be trying like hell to get over it... and everytime I'd see her (his) face... it would fuck me up all over again and I'd keep trying.  I'd keep wondering what this touch meant, or what that kiss entailed... (it was too intimate to mean nothing... right?).  I'd dwell, and I'd cry, and I'd hope, and I'd rant.  I'd be a little bit pathetic (I really would!).   And then one day, something would click.  I'd meet someone else, or I'd change my pattern with her (him).  The situation would change for me, because change is inevitable.  And it would still hurt like a fucking bitch when I went back to my old thoughts... but that would happen less and less.  I'd get depressed at the idea of forgetting her entirely (because then, what did she really mean to me at all?)  And then time would continue to pass and I realise that she had meant everthing, and that the situation didn't end as I wanted it to, but it did end.  And somehow I had found a new beginning.

There's a person I know that is a really free spirit.  She's all about photography, and art.  She adores it and wanted nothing more than to be an artists when she grew up, and she's a really great friend of mine.  All of her free-spiritedness really made me feel like you could be into art and still make a living.  Even if you weren't rich, you'd be happy.

Now she's getting into her realist mode, and all the strength I once drew from her have been fading because if this person, who at one time was all about art and now wants a simple job and go to a crappy college just to get a degree, doesn't want to go into her passion, why should I?

I never knew how empowered she helped me become until she sort of stopped empowering me.

Again, not Thrindle, don't claim to be, all standard disclaimers apply.  I just figured, why's she get to have all the fun?

1) If the strength you drew was from someone else and it fades, and their strength fades, you were never strong at all.  You were crippled, and using a crutch.

2) Don't base your dreams, goals, and desires on what others' dreams, goals, and desires are.

I can't say that I've been in this situation, because I don't rely on other people too much.  Bottom line: figure out what you want to do.  Who cares if she's been jaded?  There are so many other people you can surround yourself with to help keep your mind on the right track.  Find those people if you deem it necessary, and spend your time with them instead.

Hmm, Ono, I got something entirely different from what Walrus said.  
I sense a feeling of disillusionment - and not necessarily just with the girl.  I've been feeling a little lost lately myself.  It's like: do I go to school, get the high paying job, work 40+ hours a week, have status?  
Or do I live simply and remain peaceful?
It's as though an idea of happiness that comes from passion (be it art, writing, charity work, a loving relationship, etc), is that of youthful naivete.  At least that's what I feel I'm being told.  It's as though not having money and power makes life mundane or pointless.

***I'm having a really hard time expressing myself with this one Walrus.  I feel as though I'm on the cusp... but not quite there.  

Basically, her strength of character and willingness to live life for herself, was inspiring.  We grow up watching everybody become the drones of society.  We say that we won't do it, but we do.  You saw something different in her, it made you want to do it differently to.  You know what?  She probably will...  but we all need experience different facets of life before we realise what works for us.  (I was a secretary once...  can you honestly believe that??)  Maybe she gave you faith in true happiness, the kind that is frowned upon for being too small (for lack of a better word).  Whatever it was Walrus, I have a feeling it's not gone in her... but I think that instead of feeling sad, you should maybe try cultivating it in yourself too.

Brilliant post Walrus... but I feel that our words failed us on this one.  Was I at least on the right track?

Well, this isn't a question, it's just been the chronicle of my love life so far.

So she has a new boyfriend now.

She's had him for more than a week.

We hung out a few days ago.

Therefore, she didn't feel compelled to tell me she was dating someone new.  That's fine.  We are broken up anyway.  But that day she makes these plans to hang out with me, and I get excited.  Hell, I even kiss her, and she doesn't react.  Now, her not reacting would've been better if it was followed up with a "I'm seeing someone, sorry I didn't tell you." But instead, I'm letting anticipation grow.  That on the weekend I'll get to hang out with my x-girlfriend who's still a little interested in me, and maybe love might start anew.  Ha.  That was wishful thinking.  So today, getting closer to this day, it's time to tell Nick she's seeing someone new.

Of course now, I still can't vent to anyone I know.  They'll say "Well, you weren't going out, it shouldn't matter" but damn it, it did.  Why did she invite me to hang out at her apartment with her Saturday night if she was dating someone?  I figured it'd be over night the way she talked about watching a bunch of movies.  Now, she's telling me it was only going to be a few hours.  I hardly ever see her, so not only am I excited to see her, but I would have been seeing her for longer than normal, and it would just be me and her.  And of course, I'm just wrong several times over.

Excellent.

This probably sounds dumb to whoever's reading, because I'm in a bit of a weird mindset right now.  Hell, I'll probably look back on this and laugh.

But am I wrong to think this sucks?

Oh wow Walrus, not a good day for "Ask Thrindle"... I'm a bit brutal today.

I think she's being a bit of a bitch with her "come hither" attitude.  Honestly, she's being selfish with her need for an ego boost.  It was just plain wrong to not tell you she was seeing someone, when you kissed her.  It's as though she knows you'll always be around.

My advice, skip movies.  Skip her.  


Having said that, I know where you are at mentally.  You are not gonna cancel movies.  You are going to keep hanging on, and hanging on and hoanging on, until she lops you off, or you just fall.  Either way...  NEW BEGINNING AHEAD!

Actually, not too long after I got over my very unnamable mood, I called some girl I didn't even really know, all I knew about her was she liked movies.  My brother's girlfriend said that girl was into "weird" movies, probably ones I'd like.

So I call her.  And she's seen almost none of the movies I'm talking about.

The upside: I just called a girl I've never talked to before in my life without any nervousness.  I wasn't in my normal mindset of what excuse do I have for calling someone I don't know?

I mean, I've seen her and she's seen me before, but that's it.  So I call her and we talk about movies, and I keep mentioning those obvious movies that self-proclaimed movie buffs say they've seen (Requiem, Fight Club, Magnolia) and the newer ones (Garden State, Eternal Sunshine) and she's just listening to me give her my analysis on certain movies.   So, whatever.  It was a weird experience to call her, and I'll probably just be over Sarah until I see her again, and then it'll sting again, but who cares, right?

Besides, I don't think girls are really sluts in the first place.  I'm not a fan of the idea behind being a slut.  But the rest of the world seems to be in love with the term slut... so it's sticking around for a while.

So yesterday I think I was able to get the girlfriend (by this point I should stop saying any names) to orgasm, kind of accidentally. I'm not sure what its like for a girl exactly, but I'm pretty sure it happened. Amazingly enough, I never even touched her private parts, and wasn't expecting it. But, point is, does this change things? Obviously this would be the first time this sort of thing has happened to me, so I'm not really sure where I'm supposed to take this now and at the time I didn't know if I should even talk to her about it. I did ask little questions like "Are you alright?" when she was shaking quite a bit (she just nodded absent-mindedly) and afterwards "what happened?" (she responded rather hastily "nothing"). Should I ask her if it really did happen? If yes, should I then ask if a. I crossed the boundaries? b. How she feels about it? c. Did she feel comfortable and safe?...etc. How should I approach the issue, Thrindle?

With the added information, Chest, I'm pretty sure she had an orgasm.  Want to know my thoughts?  (well you're going to anyways)

For the first time, Thrindle doesn't advocate asking, or talking, about it.  Why?  Because your girlfriend seems so uncomfortable with her own orgasm, and I think you just want reassurance.  Let me reassure you on this one, and from there just do it again.  Ask later.  This way you're positive about the situation and she's not so freaked out.  But really, congratulations, the female orgasm can be kind of elusive.

I suppose I say less talk on this one because maybe it doesn't need to be analyzed.  Let her get used to what's happening (she seems a little bit unsure of how to handle her sexual self) and then go from there.  Believe me, you didn't go too far.

In a class today, I participated in a session of self hypnosis that tried to allow me to "free" myself to find my special place where I have a blanket to protect me from all my hassles. Question: In your mind, does such a place exist that automatically calms you and if so, is it an easy gate way?

What is your emotional reaction to this song?

"Running to Stand Still"

And so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still
Said I got to do something about where we're going
Step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain
Maybe run from the darkness in the night

Singing ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day ha la la de day

Sweet the sin, bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers but I only see one way out
You got to cry with out weeping, talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice
You know I took the poison from the poison stream
Then I floated out of here

Singing ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day ha la la de day

She runs through the streets with her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
In through a doorway she brings me
White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging, she is raging
And the storm blows up in her eyes
She will suffer the needle chill
She is running to stand still

Oh god, if I could find this place, maybe I wouldn't be so low all the time.  I do have a "centred" feeling, and I suppose I've got a memory of a time and a place, but I have to work there to get it.  You know when you are walking back to my house from up town?  And you are going down that hill?   Imagine it before any condos were built, and all you will see are the mountains and the trees in the distance.  Now imagine that you are about 10 years old, and everything in the world is right as it should be.

He's one of those guys who calls himself a "movie buff" probably.  There's a huge gap between cinephiles and buffs.  Cinephiles are usually elitist because they have acquired tastes, and buffs are elitist out of necessity to seem like a cinephile... The way you'll know you're talking to a really film lover is if they don't bring it up until later in the conversation.  It's not that they're ashamed of being one, they just think that generally, the other person wouldn't be able to contribute to cinema discussion.

Quote from: 03
i am a greedy and controlling person in a sexual relationship.

This is it's own issue.  03, I'm willing to bet that you've been left before, and the fear of being left is what compells you to be controlling.  Remember when I called you co-dependent?  I think that's where your control issues stem from.  At the end of the day we're all just scared that someone's going to pack up and head out... so sometimes we cling too tightly to try to keep them close.  You need to do some inside work one of these days and then delve into a relationship.  Also, I have always found that control is largely due to insecurity, and until you get ok with yourself, you probably will continue this same pattern.
And I write this as Aimee Mann sings "It's not going to stop until you wise up."

Quote from: 03

I think that the Internet is an easy place to have emotional affairs.  There's a level of anonyminity as well as intimacy that you can't acheive in "real" life.  This works well for you because although you want someone close to you, you don't want them too close (then they might see the real you and that s fucking terrifying).  
In my very honest opinion, I think you are looking for women to fill a void that you can't seem to fill yourself.

In no way is this criticism 03, not even close.  It's just truth.  Everybody's fucked up in their own ways, so please don't be offended.

There are a couple girls here that I'm attracted to and thus would like to get to know, etc etc. Problem is I'm pretty bad at talking to girls off the cuff, with the intent for further interaction. How do you feel about men starting conversations rather randomly with you? Ids it always obvious that they're interested when they do so? What's the best approach to talking a girl in this sort of manner?

I've talked to one girl that I thought was really pretty once, who's in my class. It was pretty innocent, brief conversation, but she didn't seem uninterested or anything. What kind of hints should I look for that aren't obvious?

Lot of questions, sorry.

Since Xixax freaked out on us and we lost the four posts that followed this, I'll recap: Thrindle said, essentially, that randomly iniating conversation is a good approach, obvious interest isn't a bad thing, and simply introducing yourself is nice.  I responded by throwing down a little theory of my own, with which Thrindle disagreed somewhat.  Then I responded by saying something profound and awesome, to which Thrindle agreed.  You'll have to fill in some of the blanks on your own.

Okay, we can restart the game clock now.

Do long distance relationships work?

I feel a little bad hijacking Thrindle's thread (not really), but this one's a gimme.  Any relationship that would work in short distance will work in long distance.  Conversely, any relationship that fails at long distance would most likely have failed anyway.  Interestingly (and this is a true statistic; I just read this the other day), while fear of infidelity is often amplified in long distance relationships, the actual rate of infidelity is lower than in other relationships.  Plus, the level of commitment tends to be stronger, simply because there is more time actively spent on making it work; i.e., nobody's taking the relationship for granted.

Fucking Xixax! 

Essentially, I said that saying hi to someone is a great approach.  If a girl is interested you'll just know.  I've had guys talk to me who have wanted to talk to my friends, or just chit chat out of boredom, or because they actually liked me.  Truth is, girls can tell what's going on, and if they're interested you'll pick up on it.  A girl will try and keep the conversation going, she'll giggle, she'll ask you about yourself... etc.

Truth is, nothing is better than being picked out of a crowd, and a confident guy comes up and says, "Hey, I'm ________ " and then segues into a good convo.  You've already made her feel special...

One more thing... I realised a while back that sexual tension isn't just a one person thing.  If you feel like a girl is into you, it's because she probably is!  Think about it... chemistry is a two way street, if she wasn't into you... you'd just feel awkward (rather than exhilerated).

I was far more eloquent before xixax screwed me.  :(

I tend to say no. Polka was right in a few points. Infidelity fears aren't that much greater and you do feel like you get to know the person better. The problem is unless you have a plan to be together in less than a year you're likely fucked. If it begins on the net, its even harder because it takes a while to put trust and confidence into someone to completely change your life around. So likely things just stall out and people go separate ways.

Beat down their self-esteem until they believe that they can't do any better.  All the assholes I know swear by it.   :yabbse-thumbup:

Truth is, nothing is better than being picked out of a crowd, and a confident guy comes up and says, "Hey, I'm ________ " and then segues into a good convo.  You've already made her feel special...

That's pretty true when it comes to (f)ugly chicks.

Thanks asshole.   :roll:

Well I don't know what my strategy is but a hot lady in her twenties won't feel special and think ''wow HE picked ME !'' unless you're Chamilionnaire or some other rich jerk.

as for the fugly comment, I don't get it.

It's not about "wow he picked me"... it's more like, "Holy, this guy might actually be worth talking to.  So far he's looked me in the eye like I have a brain, and he's not just pretty to look at.  Hmmm...  a guy that commands respect... I like it!"  :bravo:

anyone can fake that.

if you want to know if he loves you so, it's in his kiss. that's where it is.

Wait, so he has to be pretty to begin with?

LAME.

Not sure calling me a cunt would bring me back...

However, it's almost time to start seeking scriptwriting advice.  (If I ever get some balls and actually write it.)

Cheers all!

It's time to call in the big guns.

Quick someone transcribe everything Clive Owen says in Closer.

I wasn't calling you a cunt. I was being a cunt to elicit a response from you, our very valued poster. Consider it like a term of endearment.

It's actually odd that you revived this thread... I was thinking about "Ask Thrindle" recently...

I'm almost scared to re-read where my head was at, at that time.  ;)

What became of everyone?  Did anyone manage to "make it" in the film industry?  (I certainly hope so!)

I just re-read.

Shoot me.

EDIT: I know the meaning of "making it" has changed for me. When I joined ten years ago I wanted to write and direct. Anything short of that would be a failure. Today I work consistently as a camera assistant and operator on features and commercials, and I definitely consider myself having made it. But each to her own.
