Awesome. It seems to me that women tend to go for the bad guys during high school & college, & then realize that they want to spend the rest of their lives with a nice guy. I was in the same boat, until I left college.

That's great news, g30ffr3y!:D

Okay, so I read through all your posts regarding girl 'C'. I didn't read everyone elses comments, I didn't really need to as none of them were quite so involved as yourself.

Two things - I am thrilled you 'got' her. Having someone around who can light up your day is a blessing (98.7% of the time...).

Be gentle, be slow, don't lay your heart too far out in the open. Remember, for all intensive purposes, she is in a rebound relationship now, and those have pretty iffy success rates.

But, all that said, enjoy yourself. And don't try to hard to figure out your place in this world - it is the bane of the smarter soul to question their position, however there is rarely a true 'place' - the 'place' is simply anything, anywhere.

Okay, now that you, the hero, have gotten the girl, what's next? Are you going to save the world and blow up the Death Star? ;)

No, he's going to help the rest of nice guys find girls of our own. ;)

good to see this.

i've had lots of luck in the last 4 years. which i think is the key to finding a girl who can appreciate you, and is also cool herself..

sometimes things fall into place

also...

"does not compute??"

hahahahahahahahahha. some funny people around here

Bad news is most girls are putting off marriage until later these days (if at all) and hanging out with "bad" boys during this time. Of course, they're more than happy to have a "good" boy, or even a gay boy, for a shoulder to cry on during the rough periods. "Good" boys are such nice friends!

:rolleyes:

g30ffr3y
Jan 14, 2004, 02:30 PM
jayscheuerle... that was a little cynical... trust me... we arent "friends" we just havent been "bad" because of the situation and the newness of it all... she actually just called me from her training class and we are indeed going to hang out tonight... which is cool because she called me without any predetermined motive that she had to call because it was her "turn" or whatever... just because im a decent guy doesnt mean i dont like girls... quite the opposite... im all about this one!!!

i shouldnt have taken back that digi cam...

Congratulations g30ffr3y, I'm very happy to hear of your joyous news. It just takes some patience. I like to think that I'm a nice guy also. Hopefully you will have a long lasting relationship like mine of more than 31 years. It takes compromise on both sides. An important item is love for one another. I happen to think that it is also important to pray and give thanks.

Sorry Geoffrey, I wasn't commenting on your particular situation, just espousing some generalizations. I've always been a "good guy" and had plenty of fun myself before the wife and kid show. Enjoy your youth and good luck! - j

wdlove... thank you... i hope i will be very happy for a very long time... before this even happend i had resolved to try and be better towards others... sometimes i can be difficult... sometimes just a down right pain in the arse... most of my life is falling into place... i dont have any real baggage holding me back from having a good relationship... i hope this is just my year to do well for myself... its sure starting off pretty good... i got some other good news today on the financial side...

i have a skewed sort of spirituality... i just try to be a good person but it doesnt always come out right or people dont understand... but she does... and i very much thank the powers that be for dropping "an angel in the lobby" for me to find...

i keep saying thank you to everyone... i mean it... i would tell the world if i could...

I wouldn't be worried about leaving town. It isn't like she was having affairs. She was guilty of needing to see that there was someone else out there before she left her relationship, but that isn't the same thing.

If you leave town and you are in a good relationship, she won't do anything. If you leave town and she starts flirting with someone and then dumps you, what do you care about the flirting? The relationship was over anyway. The only concern is that she may be the kind of person to put a "happy face" on a relationship (the old boyfriend was talking about moving in!) when she thought there were problems. So you'll to make sure she addresses issues in the relationship instead of burying them deep.

I'm that way also, it is just common courtesy to say thank you. I hope that when someone says thank you, you also say your welcome. That is important also.

Besides trying to be a good person, you should also try to find a Church that you feel comfortable attending. You will continue a better life if you are willing to turn it over to God.

I feel a liitle embarrased by your comment jelloshotsrule. I am just like you trying to do my best each and every day.

congrat geoff

i don't think it has anytihng to do with you being a nice or bad guy, just being yourself, no matter how trite that may sound.

I also like the fact that i was right in saying, that she was looking for a way out of her former relationship

iJon
Jan 14, 2004, 08:52 PM
well dont let you guard down to fast or "hand her your balls in a jar" to quickly. let it break in about at the 3 month marker and i would say your set. good luck and lets hope you dont go out of town and leave her your key ;)

don't sweat it. you're simply a very kind person who always has a nice thing to say... even when someone's being a bit of a bastard. hah

so your statement about you being a 'nice guy', to me, goes without saying

Take this person's advice! Rebound relationships are dangerous, watch yourself, don't get too into her at first, give it time to grow close.

Another BIG hint: communicate. That is the key to all relationships.

Glad it worked out for you, i on the other hand have learned the following in the last few weeks

women require time and money: _
therefore
Women = Time X Money

since we know “time is money”
Time = Money

so if we substitute Money for Time we get:
Women = Money X Money

therefore
Women = (Money)^2

Further we know “money is the root of all evil”
therefore
Money = (Evil)1/2

If one remembers
(Money)^2 = Women

Then

(Money)^2 = Evil

by substituting

"women" for "(money)^2" as shown above

Women = Evil

Or simply stated Women are evil

* sorry, i've had a bad week.

Shouldn't there be a square root in there somewhere? Like when (Money)^2 = Evil goes to Women = Evil?

Just splitting hairs.

No i don't think so ... (this isn't my invention, a friend showed me it, but i did check it a few times an looks right to me)


i just thought it was funny thats all ... didn't mean to ruin the happy party with my unhappy thoughts

Just splitting hairs. there is a square root in there.

money = evil ^(1/2)

raising a number to the 1/2 power means taking the square root of it, just like raising a number to the 1/3 power means taking the cube root of it.
again, if
money = evil^(1/2)
then
money^2 = (evil^(1/2)^2)
and since raising a power to a power can be reduced by multiplying them together, (1/2 * 2 = 1)
money^2 = evil^1 = evil

lol, i've spent too much time with math.

that's a really old joke, by the way, revenuee. how long ago did you hear it?

the first time ... about 6 years ago --- but it kinda got lost ... and then an then a friend of mine showed me it again a few weeks ago when we were talking about out recent "mishaps" we've experience with the girls/women in our life, and i was like " I remember this" ... and now it stuck

im fighting the good fight for every guy/gal who gets down about relationships... which since this is a "computer geek" kinda place... i assume covers more than just me...

i even let her play with my ipod last night... out of its case... ooohhh... for me to trust someone even to do that is a breakthrough...
