I'm glad to see you here, Mibs.
Hope you feel better soon.
As to the other stuff, well, you know. We've spoken about it before and you know you can message me whenever you need to talk.

MIB..
Oh honey, I'm so sorry.
Nursing a broken heart just..SUCKS.
People don't realize just how bad it is until they go through it.
Just be glad things fell apart before you got married.

I think many people get into realtionships with folks that have kids not realizing just how much they are taking on with that. How hard that can be.
People, in the beginning throws of love think it conquers all and that's just not true.
Really, the daily grind, living together, dealing with each others, friends and family, the stresses of life etc...THIS is what's real.

Ones best chances for a truly lasting relationship is to find someone who is like them in interest, values and such. (and of course you'd have to desire them, too)

If you are lonely for romance..please join a club or something that draws others with similar interests and values as yours, folks who are maybe looking for a mate, too.

There are a-lot of people out there for you..you simply have to force yourself to reach out and go for it. there are a-lot of people out there looking for love and a real relationship. They are out there. It's just everyone is too shy and too scared to be vulnerable, I think.

Do you know Whitley Strieber met his much loved wife (of many years) through a dating service.

Many people are meeting this way these days. if that isn't what works for you, join a club that is about one of your interests. It could be anything, science, gaming, UFO's, politics, comic books, Sci-Fi, heck..I dunno, photgraphy (they actualy have clubs like these for singles that are looking for mates, too!!)
You could even take a class at the local community college.. one that intrigues you...it could evren be tongue in cheek like clog dancing..or it could be more serious like creative writing...heck go learn tae Chi..or join a gym (they are ntorious for hooking up men and women..gyms and heaqlth clubs..must be all the sweat releasing hormones and endorphins into the air or something)

Allow yourself, to learn and to heal some more, and when you are ready, I implore you, put yourself out there.

Also, come back here..this place can be fun.

may 2010 bring good things your way.

What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?

Likewise MIBs! I may not always give the best advice but I'm definitely open to talk if you want to. 🙂

Hi Stieven,

Who doesn't remember you? Nobody ever topped your 40K+ post count for sure. Laugh Thanks for sharing your last years events with us, like John says, the wonderful thing about this site, is the friendships around the world we make. I'm still humbled everytime I think about how people were concerned for me and preyed while I had my knee replacments, and none have ever seen me face to face. Thats the kind of friends you have here too.

Just a bit of Fatherly advise and wisdom. Sometimes things are just not ment to be, and finding it out can be a painful process. Trust me, you are a young fellow at 26, you are going to find the right girl and end up married with a houseful of kids someday, with inlaws who love and respect you. Her family who talked about you, is now that other guys "Inlaws", probably doing the same thing to him behind his back to their daughter.

You will find a day when you will be saying "Thank God", this is the Mother and Father in law I ended up with, and not them". Put it behind you, the one for you is waiting for you to find her. And you will!

PS start posting again too, everyone misses you. 😀

Hey Mibs

Sorry to see the pressures youve been under mate..
With all that in mind,many types of experiences will get you down if you entertain the idea,but dont let them..please !
I know the feeling of being so focused on mind chatter through despair and the like ,the loss of loved ones within the family or closer pretty much buries the best parts of a person if they let it happen..You can be your own savior,dont be forget that.....
I hope you hang around...

WOOT! You better stick around. Or Imma have to kidnap you, and airfare is expensive nowadays, so don't make me do it!

Good to see ya made it back MIB...

Sorry to disappoint you all but, I'm not back. I might be, just haven't made up my mind yet. I just felt I owed it to people, an explanation.

I know you may not feel like you want to come back, and that's ok! I invited you back so you saw the changes here, and so you'd find some old friends you haven't talked to in a while.

Well, I did miss people here. Often wandered if they still posted or not. Glad to see not everyone turned their back like me.

Things do happen for a reason.

I suppose they do, I still have to find the reason behind all of this. The only thing that brings me down at this point is, all those who have hurt me ... they seem to find happiness. People tell me that karma will end up collecting their bill sooner or later. I retort by asking them what that helps me? Say the woman who I broke up with, their new home burns down... I'm not gonna deny that I would find momentarily satisfaction and a grim blanket of hilariousness would cover my days, but it wouldn't help me.

I will say this. Boards like this that have a special feel to them, surrounded by friends (and friendly debaters alike) is sometimes what we need. We can wake up and check our messages from half a globe away, or peer into the thoughts and minds of another country we've never visited.

You are right about that, and in a way I am seeking help kinda.

But he posted for years, and even reading your post above, it's indicative of how much you've learned to communicate in English.

I keep a spell-check nearby, just in case 😉

As to the other stuff, well, you know. We've spoken about it before and you know you can message me whenever you need to talk.

I hold you on that promise, every time 🙂

@bionic:

You could be right that I didn't know what I was getting myself into. But I was willing to delve in, all the same. The biggest problem afterwards was that I really was alone. My parents have never really been supportive of the fact that she was "Turkish". Total crap to be honest, she was born here in Belgium so her roots are simply that her parents weren't born here. There it ends. But after the break-up they didn't really care for being there for me. They never did, for that matter.

I never really saw myself as a social person, so clubs might not be the best thing. But it's worth keeping it in the back of my mind.

Who doesn't remember you? Nobody ever topped your 40K+ post count for sure.

I can only hope that some posts actually stuck in people's head, rather then the sheer quantity of it.

er family who talked about you, is now that other guys "Inlaws", probably doing the same thing to him behind his back to their daughter.

The irony of this is, they have abandoned her, her whole family. They didn't do that with me. Guess that's strike one for me?

With all that in mind,many types of experiences will get you down if you entertain the idea,but dont let them

It's a matter of keeping my mind occupied, which is not an easy thing to do. I have delving into the world of Magic: The Gathering, my Xbox 360 is giving me lots of Guitar Hero-hours and MMORPG's are eating away at the time spent pondering over loss and hurt, so to speak. It's just the being alone-factor in the whole equation that gets the best of me.

With all this said, I'll see if I can hang around. I'm not gonna be as active as before, I'm not anymore.

It's nice to see you back.

Sounds like you were lucky to me. I know it doesn't feel very nice, but I am pretty sure you'll look back and see that this turned-out the best way.

Broken-hearted? lost? No zest for life? Been there many times. It never gets easier, but I think one gets more practical over 'carrying on' when it's happened a lot.

Much as I would have liked it otherwise, in the end it's only '''you''' who can pull yourself up by the bootstraps.

Feel the pain and misery ... suck it up! Then get back in the swing of your life. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, y'kno'.
