    I drink a lot of wine...hoping the feeling goes away. How about you?

    UPDATE: Situation changed, things are good. Keep the suggestions coming for fun I guess.

    Update #2:
    Frackin' A I knew this was gonna happen. Some <insert snarky name here> decided to be a smart 244 and bring up this old thread, and now people are gonna start responding to it. Well I might as well post an update...

    Quick wrap-up minus the drama:
    xfiftyfour and I have been in a relationship for the past 3+ months. Things are fantastic, and we're very very happy. Moral of the story? If you love something that much, don't give up.

    New question, how do you delete a thread?

    time is about the only thing that works. Drinking is not a solution to the problem. For me it took months for me to pull out of it and I end going on some perscription medication for depression. Mind you I am some one who has stuggle with depression for most of my life so something like that blow was well beyond what my normal ways of coping with it could handle.

    It was so hard for me to walk out of that Apple store that cold rainy day, I wanted that Mac Pro setup so bad but my credit card said no. What did I do??
    Had the credit limit raised ;)

    I just lost the girl I loved for over a year, the only way that I have started to fall out of love with her was to find another girl to spend time with. And as far as drinking goes, its only a temp fix.

    Drinking solves nothing my friend. You need to get some premium weed.

    Weed solves nothing. You need to get some premium love. :p
    Drinking and weed will only make you more depressed. At least take your drink/weed (semi)public so can meet someone.

    Yup drinking. I usually go for the hard stuff then though.

    Ok, in all seriousness? I ignored the person. Because otherwise I would space out everytime I saw them.

    lol.

    But that's what I did! I know, probably not the best idea. But I knew we'd eventually part so what's the point? And what's funnier? Our paths are crossing again.

    Powerful anti-psychotic drugs can be very effective in situations like that. :D

    try hypnosis. hypnotists can implant false impressions/memories. some are helping fat people lose weight by suggesting during hypnosis that they hate chips, candies, etc.

    a high percentage actually form phobic responses to junk food. i dont see why a hypnotist couldnt do that with a person.

    You could do what I did...
    1. Get rid of all your personal belongings,
    2. brake off contact with any and every one you know, and
    3. move a couple thousand miles away and start over from scratch.

    :rolleyes:

    Did it work... not really. But I doubt anything would have worked. :eek:

    When my first wife left me it ended a relationship that had started 13 years earlier (when I was 16). Consequently, I honestly couldn't really remember a time before her or without her.

    It has been almost 10 years and scarcely a day goes by that I don't think about it.


    Maybe the pain never goes away... you just get used to it after awhile. :(

    But that type of solution only lasts the night, and it's expensive.


    Ah yes, that's definitely the answer. Just get hypnotised so that whenever you see her, you see this bitchy cow who farts a lot.

    get a dog...

    And stop wallowing in the dumps man. Pull yourself together. Get out there and meet the next one you can't live without. If it's not Mr. or Mrs. Right, it can still be Mr./Mrs. Right now...

    1. Go on with your life as though that person never existed.
    2. Sever all contact and forget about getting any of your things back unless it's something you absolutely can't replace.
    2b. If you simply must have contact with that person, bring a witness along with you.
    2c. If you see them out and about, don't let them see you be anything but sunshine and kittens.
    3. Find a hobby or some other outlet to fill the time you would have been spending with that person.
    4. The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.

    sidebar, off topic...

    I've heard of being sunshine and light, but sunshine and kittens? I gotta know, did you make that one up or is it an old saying I just never heard of?
