UGH, that friend zone garbage is so utterly repulsive and so many people buy into it! I can't slap them ALL upside the head, but I really, really want to.

It doesn't even make sense for "I can talk to you about anything," "You're really a nice guy" and "You understand me" to be listed as "warnings" that you are being "friendzoned." These are all things I want to be able to say to a guy I might want a relationship with. If the writer of this page thinks that being nice, fun to talk to, trustworthy and understanding is the province of friends and romantic relationships are just for sex and silence, I think I know why he keeps getting rejected. Well, that, and the overall dickishness problem.

WTF is with the advice to tell a woman you are friends with that you "just want to be friends"? It would creep me the hell out if a friend of mine suddenly told me that. I'd be like, um, what alternate reality have you invented for us? Please don't murder me and wear my skin.

More hugs for iroc! I hope she comes home with great stories from school to make you both feel happy.

Fifi, it sucks so much that something like that was hidden from you. I'm really glad you found the letter so that at least you knew - two years later than you were supposed to and four years after you SHOULD have been told - but still, better late than never. It's so ridiculous to me what older family members will decide ought to be some deep, dark secret. It's like, really? Stop being a soap opera character and loosen up!

For real! The comments are especially discouraging, with so many men and women dissecting it as if it has merits, or outright lauding it as a great article! NO! NO IT'S NOT IT'S MISOGYNISTIC ******** GTFO!

I posted this before and it's still spot-on about the whole gross, moronic concept:

http://arumourinstpetersburg.tumblr....her-situations

Quote:
Yeah, it couldn’t possibly be because you’re a narcissistic douche who can’t fathom any woman not being attracted to you. Or she only sees you as a friend, which is a valued relationship believe it or not. Or you know, a million other reasons that are perfectly reasonable factors in her own damn decision.

All you want to do is have sex with her, judge her, and completely disrespect her autonomy, and she’s not into you? Oh yeah, DEFINITELY a “psycho”.
Quote:
i am sick of women being treated like every time they go after a guy that other men feel intimidated by because he’s hot/assertive/whatever they feel the need to make her a victim in the situation. oh she must be clouded by her hormones and he must treat her like crap which she tolerates because of her low self-esteem!

or worse, when they take women actually in abusive relationships and say that they brought it on themselves by dating jerks instead of obviously nice guys like them

and **** aggressive flirting being seen as a bad thing, and why the hell is friendliness ‘aggressive flirting’? why do people think compliments, comfort, and affection automatically mean ‘i wanna bone you’?

I dropped the iron on the carpet. Somehow, and contrary to the kind of luck I usually have, it didn't land hot side down, so the carpet is fine.

But when I picked it up, I was trying to check out the carpet to make sure it was okay.....and smacked the hot iron into my arm. Now I have a 2 inch long, iron shaped burn on my forearm. Awesome.

The thing that slays me about friend zone complaints is, if you don't want to be just a friend, then don't. I've been bro-zoned, it sucks then you move on. It's far easier to hear "I don't like you like that" than " I don't love you anymore."

Buddy's a little clean freak. I clean the food dish, he runs over to supervise. I clean the litterbox, he comes over to supervise so that he can pee as soon as its done. I tear down and clean his water fountain. When it's done, he magically wakes up from a nap to test the new water. He's so funny.

Well, not surprising and kind of apt, but still kind of sad:

You Scored as Peasant.
You were a peasant in a past life and a very good person indeed. You lived a simple life and learned to deal with struggle as part of the natural order of things but overtime you became aware of the unjustice put upon your people. By cause of wanting a better life and respect for your brethren you chose to fight. You died in an uprising against the powers that be with humility and pride.

My cat insists upon supervising all bathing, laundry and bed making.

This part gets extra-special like points and a flower smiley because its existence makes the world a better place.

Does having been 360% in existence make it any better having been mostly a peasant? That's a remarkable presence to have had.

Also, what quiz is this?

I spent the day with friends (old and new). It was fun and crazy. I saw a guy I haven't seen for over four years and on on whom I had (and still have the biggest crush). I had a really, really good day.

Some random past life quiz. There's a bunch of different ones. I figure in a past life I would have had a rather boring existence, so I had an inkling that I'd be a simple peasant.

My cousin's daughter's take on the VP nominee --
Ew, ew, ewwww...I can barely put into words how f**king creepy the republican vice presidential nominee is...so GROSS. If you look up date rapist in the dictionary I'm sure you'll see his bratty little face there...seriously what is wrong with these people. I watched 2.5 minutes of his speech and could clearly see that he is a sociopath. So heinous.

It has really stupid annoying questions.

Here's another. LOL:
Quote:
I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern West Russia around the year 1175. Your profession was that of a librarian, priest or keeper of tribal relics.
Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Seeker of truth and wisdom. You could have seen your future lives. Others perceived you as an idealist illuminating path to future.
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
You fulfill your lesson by helping old folks and children. You came to this life to learn to care about the weak and the helpless.
