Ah, funnyjunk. My GF just dumped me, about 30 minutes after my "What is love" post.

What's worse, it was an "It's not you, it's me", and it was also through a facebook chat. A fucking facebook chat. Didn't have the decency to do irl. But she claims to want to still be my friend, and I don't know what to do. I just need your comfort, Fj. Please.
#147092 to #147009 - confusedasian (07/28/2014) [-]
The irony is that I was the one that posted "Baby don't hurt me" lyrics and she hurts you. I guess I jinxed you or something.

say nah you say this irl nigga you oh me that if you wanna still be friends
User avatar #147034 to #147009 - iridium (07/28/2014) [-]
I don't think I could stay friends with someone who thought breaking up through Facebook was a decent thing to do, much less someone who throws out the "It's not you it's me" line. You should do what you can to get her out of your life as much as possible.

My man, That's fucking rough.....

I know where you've been my friend and it's a bad fucking place. Love of my life dumped me after 15 months and went off with my best mate who saw me through some tough times.

All I can tell you is what people told me and I refused to believe, It gets easier. She gave you some BS reason and maybe you'll never get the proper reason but that still being friends thing is just a thing they say to cushion the blow/make themselves feel less guilty. Be glad you weren't led along and cheated on because if nothing else, you meant enough to her life that she didn't want it ending badly.

And you know what man? If you meant that much to one person just imagine what's gonna happen when you find the right girl who loves you just as much!

If you're anything like me then the next months gonna be tough but trust me it gets easier, you stop feeling so terrible and the crazy thoughts about trying to get her back fade away and you start looking forward.

Might not help but I'll tell you what I did once I got through the stage of hating everything, I set up a facebook group and invited everyone who I was resonably good friends with and then we all had a load of days out. It was sun shit man, paintballing, movies, beaches or even just hanging out talking about nothing. As time went on I made more and more friends and the facebook group is even now still getting bigger and bigger! It's 60 people strong right now my friend and the other night I organised it so we all went down and supported one of our mates who was performing in sime music festival! I had gathered so many people there that I'd say if it weren't for me, the festival wouldn't have been half as full (It was a small local festival and my mates weren't even very good) and that feeling of causing all that t happen while I sit there with them all under the stars man.....Just wait......You'll have more golden moments. Tough it out, You'll come out a stronger person!

Thank you.
User avatar #147012 to #147009 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
You can't just be friends, tell her you just can't do it and ignore her. She's not taking you seriously or respecting you, it won't work out and eventually you'll only be forcing yourself to be friends with her even when you don't want to be.
#147013 to #147012 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
But the thing is, there's that retarded part of my heart that thinks that we might have a chance together "in a year or two". I don't want to let go.
User avatar #147016 to #147013 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
I was in a purely LDR once, she stopped coming online and I tried to justify why over ad over again in my head. Making excuses for her, telling myself that if she came back I'd talk it out and hope we can still be together. She never came back and I wasted a lot of time waiting for her. It took a while to even realize what was wrong and I never asked for advice.
Thing is, I'm quite good at giving advice but its hard when you have to give advice to yourself. I'm telling you, get some sleep and then in the morning, read your own posts and give advice to yourself as if you were someone else. You realize that you'd probably give different advice to someone in the same situation then the advice you'd give to yourself.
#147017 to #147016 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
Do you remember me, thatnigger? You always seem to help me out on this board. Do you remember my previous situation with her?
User avatar #147023 to #147017 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
You see, she has this idea in her head that even if you go back to being friends, you'll still treat her like a girlfriend and she can still maybe get with other guys as well. You need to tell her that she can't have it both ways, that there's no going back to friends after a break up and if she wants to meet other guys, she definitely can't have you.
I know you like her, but she's not giving you the respect she should give you and she's hoping to keep you around for the future if she can't find someone else.
You need to communicate to her first, tell her that you can't be friends and you're not going to be her backup option. Move on, maybe join a club, work out or do sports, anything to get your mind off of it and just keep your eyes out for other girls ad opportunities, good luck.
#147010 to #147009 - dronenortle (07/28/2014) [-]
Try to figure out from yourself the exact cause of the breakup, breath a little and let it all out because it's not good to have that all pent up. Relax and try to progressively move on, if that includes not wanting to see her for the time being then so be it.
#147011 to #147010 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
Well, she says that being in a relationship is too stressful for her right now and the can't do it. She says that we can "try again" in a year or two, according to her.
#147021 to #147011 - dronenortle (07/28/2014) [-]
Well with all due respect I wouldn't want to jump back into that because who's to say that she will suddenly be stressed out from relationships and do this to you again? Once you're done with me, you're done. then again im a hypocrite since im still banging my ex
#147022 to #147021 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
...well then
User avatar #147014 to #147011 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
Please don't just hang around like she wants you to. If she changes her mind of finds fresh love, she'll probably jump on that so quickly. You know that, I know you do somewhere deep down. Move on, I'm so sure you'll find someone else. If you want advice on meeting new people as well, we'll give you that advice as well.
#147015 to #147014 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
I know. It's just that... she was my first "real" relationship. It's hard, man
User avatar #147018 to #147015 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
It really is and you probably know we've all been there. I never asked for advice though until it'd been too long and I'd wasted a lot of time, you've been given the advice though, hope you don't the right choice.
User avatar #147004 - anaphase (07/28/2014) [-]
Hello Fj, it's anaphase again. You may remember me from such episodes as: "Is my girlfriend going to dump me?" and "Help! My girlfriend dumped me!".
In this episode: "My ex-girlfriend is being a massive bitch and I don't understand why"!

So here's what's happened: She turned cold to me and dumped me about six weeks ago. I didn't do anything to deserve it or anything, she just said she's "better off alone" and "doesn't know how to do relationships". This was after a year together.

She told me that she still cares about me and doesn't want to lose me: that she still wants to be my friend. I told her that I was happy to do that, but I wanted to not hear or see her until after uni holidays finished (about a month) to try to get over her.
She wasn't happy about that, but accepted it and I did not hear from her for about a month.

However, I had to go up to her hometown on a uni trip last week- the absolute last place I wanted to be due to all the memories, etc.

She showed up. She wasn't part of the course or anything, but she decided to tag along anyway. I wasn't very pleased but said hello and asked after her and everything. Tried to talk to her about how she'd been and all, but she was quite cold, rude and nasty. And she took off with her friend (a guy, who is also my friend) the entire day. When I tried to talk to the both of them, she was either quite rude and short or ignored me.

This upset me incredibly; she claims she wants to be friends and then treats me like shit? What was she playing at, being here? The professor (being very nice and quite clued on) must have realised what was going on and presumably asked her to leave, since she had said she was going to stay the whole week, but didn't.

She also came back to pick up said friend and go back to our uni in her car so he wouldn't have to take the bus, which was going to the same place they were.


User avatar #147006 to #147004 - anaphase (07/28/2014) [-]
So fast-forward to today, and I'm dropping off her bike (which was at my house) and some other things at her place. I ring the bell, see her walk up through the window, and when she sees it's me she wheels around and stalks away.

Her friend opened the door. I gave him the stuff, told him to tell her the bike was out front, and left.

My question is: What the fucking fuck is her fucking deal? She breaks my heart, shows up in the last place I want to be, treats me like shit, and then takes off with this bastard all the time. He has a girlfriend, but it wouldn't surprise me if she was after him since he's this big tough country boy (drives a 4wd which he calls "Beast" and took a fucking stockwhip to the camp to prove how country and tough he is) and she'd be right into that.

The end result is the same, in any case: I never want to see or hear from her again. But can you guys help me understand just why she's being so nasty to me? If anything, I should be nasty to her for the above reasons.

I don't understand
User avatar #147008 to #147006 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
You did the right thing saying you want time to get over her, but you shouldn't have agreed to be friends. Its a terrible idea to be friends with your ex. She wanted to keep your around for safety, but you wouldn't let her take advantage of you and maybe she realizes that and so doesn't want to waste her time trying to keep you hanging. You should just forget about her, she's trying to move on and forget about you, you should do the same. If she asked to be friends or for you back, just ignore her.
User avatar #147007 to #147006 - hoponthefeelstrain (07/28/2014) [-]
uh she probably dumped you because she wanted to sleep around a little, she expected you to wait around for her and when you didn't (by saying you didn't want to see her) she got pissed. She was hanging out with that guy on the trip to make you jealous and now she's just mad because I don't fucking know.

Who cares why. This chick is being a cunt to you, you don't need it, and you don't deserve it. Cut her (and possibly your mutual "friend")out of your life and move on. It sucks, but when you look back at this in the future, you'll be glad you did.

People keep pissing me off until I can't contain it any more and when that happens they wonder why I'm pissed. I HAVE to sit there and take whatever shit people want to give me, if I don't then I just get more shit for it. Nobody seems to understand that if you keep poking a lion, it's eventually going to kill you. So I need a polite way to get people to shut the fuck up.

Learn to laugh it off.
Nothing will shut them up faster, than you laughing it off.

If someone walks up to you and says they'll "beat your fucking face in," laugh it off and walk away.
Be the bigger man.
They won't know what to do, and they'll just shut up and stop. Only because at that moment, they'll realize that they can't get to you anymore. They'll see that you won't be their punching bag anymore.
User avatar #146997 to #146995 - ipostcp (07/28/2014) [-]
In reality if somebody is going to beat your face in, the last thing you wanna do is laugh at them.
User avatar #146999 to #146997 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/28/2014) [-]
Ehhh, I've had people tell me just that, and by laughing it off and walking away, they learned to move on and forget about it.

Although I guess it depends on the situation. If you accidentally mess with someone in the mafia and they say they'll beat your face in, there's a good chance that will happen.
However if it's just a friend/ coworker/ family member, then it's safe to say they won't act. (Unless they have a known history of such things.)

Hello Brothers and Sisters of FJ.
I came here to vent and get some advice. First off I will state that I am only 20 years old and the girl I have been with since I was 14 has broken up with. She say's she doesn't love me anymore which I can tell is a lie especially since I have been with her for 5 years and I can tell when she lies. It feels like she is forcing herself to say this. She is going to Australia with her step sister which is the real reason she broke up with me I assume.The back story of this is her step sister met a guy who lives there on league of legends and is moving in with him and my ex is going with her. Her step sister and her boyfriend hate me and would not let me come. My ex refuse's to talk to me because she said it is too hard to talk/see me. Which is another reason I know she still loves me, the last couple of times we saw each other she started to cry expect for the last time and told me she still loves me and wants to be with me only to send a message over facebook saying she didn't mean it and that she no longer loves me.This is really confusing me I have been diagnosed with Bi-polar Depression and Stomach cancer ever since we broke up. I have told her about both and she cried a little bit over the stomach cancer and ever since I have told her about this she has completely stopped all contact with me other then to wish me a happy birthday. I am very confused over this I don't know who I am without her considering the years you discover yourself I was with her and I found myself through her. I love her so much and have no Idea what's going on.
User avatar #147003 to #146984 - thatnigger (07/28/2014) [-]
Tell her if its all ending, the least she could do after ending a 5 year relationship with you is tell the truth. I think if you do that, you can communicate with her and find out what to do next. I'd probably tell you not to follow her though, encase everything goes wrong and you end up in a new country without a girlfriend and people you know. I still think if you can get closure it might be better, otherwise just block her on everything and move on.
User avatar #146996 to #146984 - ipostcp (07/28/2014) [-]
You're twenty, you can live on your own and with a second person it becomes much easier. Suggest getting a place together.

So she's leaving the country and/ or if she continued to stay your girlfriend, you would have had a long distance relationship, yes?   
   
You have to take a step outside of your emotions and analyze the situation from different perspectives.   
Why she is moving, I don't know.   
Although, the reason why she dumped you is because she knows that long distance relationships are extremely hard to keep up with.   
Australia's time is in UTC+10:00. From where I live, that's a 16 hour difference.   
   
Keeping long distance relationships is really, really hard.   
Both of you would need to keep some form of contact at least every eight hours.   
Go longer than 8 hours and it's straining the relationship. Go longer than 12 and you're damaging it pretty badly. Longer than 16 and there's irreversible damage. Longer than a full day, and it's pretty much destined to end within the week.   
   
Take a look at things from her perspective.   
She may not be in a situation to stay with you. She does love you, but she knows that keeping the relationship would be far too hard for either to do.   
It's a tough choice, although you either end it in it's prime, or it ends when one starts to get jealous and/ or starts to hate the other from a lack of contact.   
   
The most you can do is maybe see if there's a way for her to stay. Otherwise, if you love something; set it free.   
I'm sorry that you have to go through this, and I'm sorry that you have stomach cancer.   
Just ride this out, and things will get better with time.

A few ways I could respond to this. This is one of em'. She obviously still seems to love you or she wouldn't care about talking to you. Saying she doesn't love you anymore is just a way for her to try to move on. Maybe being long distance will be too hard on her and her family members hating you is also hard on her. If she still loves you she will come back. I could imagine how painful it must be considering how long you were together. Maybe it's an opportunity to meet other people and she was just a chapter in your life and everything happens for a reason. Though after five years you would think she was the love of your life. If she is, she will come back. You should try (Though i'm sure you have already, but in the off chance you haven't) writing her something long letting her know how you feel. If she doesn't answer she might just be trying to push the pain away, because she obviously still has feelings for you.

Anyhow, it does seem like there may be no way of getting her to stop from leaving. It seems like she is really focused on going and leaving you. of course there is a chance that she may just be trying to make her step sister happy and what not. She probably did have a hand in this in some manner, and may have ended up convincing her "what is best".

Through the good times and bad. When you've found that special feeling with someone, you're in love.   
   
If you get a smile from your face each and every time they text you, you're in love.

That right there is a very difficult question. I can give you the short version which is basically that you will almost definetly know it when it hits you and also that the whole love at first sight thing is bullshit because love isn't based on looks but neither can you have true love without a physical attraction as well as a mental one. I could go on.......But love is pretty different for everyone so my version may not be the same as what yours may be. Why do you ask?
#146983 to #146978 - holymackarel (07/28/2014) [-]
Everyone has a different definition of love, and I find it very interesting to hear everyone's personal and unique definition of it. You know, from the heart Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Also, I want to know if the feelings I feel towards my gf is really love, as cheezy as it sounds
User avatar #146985 to #146983 - pirgh (07/28/2014) [-]
Hm....Well, I suppose I may as well give you my long version then! Sweet Jesus this is gonna get sappy.

To me, Love is the feeling that you can and would do nearly anything to be with her (e.g. I'm pretty sure I'd be willing to give up 50 years of my life/all material objects if I could be with her etc.)

It's that certainty, that even if someone who was exactly like the person you are with comes along only better looking and less flaws you still wouldn't leave the person you're with because this other person simply wouldn't be them.

It's being able to tell them everything, being able to be totally yourself without any filters on, being able to relax with them.

It's being able to want a cuddle more than sex sometimes and that's okay

It's being able to feel safe and warm and happy without that immenant fear it could all be shat on because you trust them.

It's being able to deal with them looking at other people and thinking their hot/hotter than you because you know you can do the same if you wanted.

It's being able to tell yourself that given an oppertunity where you'd get away scot free, you still wouldn't fuck anyone else because you would just feel wrong.

It's being able to get really angry at eachother and sort it out.

It's being able to, As a man, Accept that sometimes a woman just won't make sense and you can deal with that and swallow your pride, and being able to make an allowance for every possible situation no matter how annoye you get.

Love is accepting the fact that perhaps their love could have been given to anyone in the world and it didn't matter who to them, but now you have it so you should treasure it never the less

Most of all, Love is this big warm thing that fills your life when you have it and leaves you deflated if it leaves.

I dunno man love is awesome, No better feeling in the world than being loved by the woman you love, none worse than losing her.

So, Long story short.

2 and a half years ago me and a group of friends got involved with a group of girls. Me and my best mate fall for the same girl. Shit goes down, we both fight for her, He wins, I don't take it well and go off by myself for some soul searching for a year or so.

Didn't really talk to anyone during that time but I got through it and came out all the better for it after meeting some new people. Eventually fall in love again and have a fairytale good relationship for 15 months before she decides she likes one of my best friends more (one who stuck by me through the year of BS.)

That was 2 months ago and that sucked pretty hard but I'm moving on and doing fine. I went out this Summer and met new people and new friendss and have a huge circle of friends who look at me like a leader who organises all the events and takes care of all the details. Shit is cash.

A few weeks ago the friends from 2 and a half years ago start hanging out with us all too minus a few of them who have gone down a pretty bad road (I had been talking to them as normal friends for quite awhile before the Summer)

Life's starting too look pretty sweet, I'm in decent shape and not an ugly guy, I know how to talk to and treat a woman pretty fucking well and I've been getting my confidence back (Still have my bad days but don't we all)

Now all of a sudden, The girl from 2 and a half years ago starts talking to me again. (She cheated on my my friend and that's how it ended between them. Was a long time ago and she was younger and stupider)

I suppose the question is, Is she worth my time and/or effort? I think it's possible she might ask me out and honestly, I dunno whether to go for it or not. Any advice?

Alright, not sure if this is the right board but I don't know of a board to go to other than this one. Before you read, I want to say i'm not doing this for attention or trying to make myself look special and I'm sorry if I seem like I am, but I seriously want help. Anyways, as of recent I feel like I've been getting... numb, so to speak. Because of this I don't really care about anything. I seriously haven't given two shits about a damn thing for the past month or so. Emotions are slowly getting blurred out and because of this I have no goal in life, I literally sit around all day trying to kill time in hopes that soon something will happen to bring back the emotions. The only reason I'm coming to advice is because recently I have just about convinced myself that suicide will solve this (by ending the streak of nothingness and lack of everything). Now I'm damn well sure I'm not depressed or anything, hell, feeling sad would be great right now, any form of feeling would just fucking make my day. The weird part is that I'm living an ok life, live in the suburbs, decent social life going on, got a pretty good job for my age (10-15$ an hour), not half bad looking, so I just don't see why I'm feeling this way. I don't know what I expect out of a damn image board, but any form of help would be nice, or knowing that other people feel this way. Again sorry for making myself seem like a super special snowflake.

I was just like you 2 years ago.
This is going to sound hokey but I couldn't feel anything just like you, until somebody made me feel something. I fell in love with a girl and literally all me emotions came rushing back I was a wreck for months. But I'm back to normal now. I have cyclical depression but, that's normal to me. Love keeps me going I guess.
Not sure how that would help you, not trying to say you should find somebody to love, that you need somebody to love, but that helped me I guess.

years ago i felt much like you do now. a friend suggested i devote one month to helping her work with troubled teens using art therapy. i became so wrapped up in wanting to help them that my depression melted away. perhaps you simply need an inspired purpose in life, a new direction. i think your spirit is telling you it needs a challenge, it's tired of simply being content. the world is literally aching for mentors and people to help make positive change in any one of a thousand ways.
depression is complicated though. chemical imbalances are often at play and i will hope you talk with a nearby professional. please remember the rule to never make a rash decision in a state of stress.
my depression changed my life for the better. i became a nurse and the world has changed.
what will you become?

Ok my man, Now I dunno if I'm gonna say anything to help you, But I'ma give it a shot anyway!

So first thing is, that nothingness your feeling is pretty much a normal thing people feel.

Hell I'm pretty sure EVERYONE feels some degree of it at some stage, you probably just got the short end of the stick and ended up with it for longer and that fucking sucks because that feeling is horrific, but not permanant.

First important thing for you to do is stop thinking about the things you do as "burning time" In the words of a very brilliant man who got me through some bullshit of my own "Let me not think of my work as a stepping stone to something greater, And if it is? Let me become fascinated by the shape of the stone".

Next thing is to find a hobby. Maybe it's something your already doing? Maybe it's reading, maybe it's watching anime or my little pony or hell maybe it's drawing dicks on crackers with spray cheese, in all honesty it doesn;t really matter as long as you do it without thinking of it as "burning time"

Now the thing that helped me the most and this is gonna make me sound like a fucking fedora wearing douche but I dont give a crap, is playing by my own rules.

You see society has it's own set of fine print rules alot of people follow along and life gets alot funner when you just stop. I'm not talking about legalities and all that.

For example, that whole rule about not talking to strangers who are wearing headphones on a bus in the seat in front of you. I tapped him on the shoulder, asked him what he's listening to and long story short, he's one of my closest mates now.

People think it's wierd if you just lie down on the grass in some places but you know what? I've considered killing myself before man so if I wanna lie in the grass, I'm gonna fucking do it cause it was sunny and I felt like relaxing. (This sounds alot more edgy than I want it to but meh)

Watch this video and his other ones, Get well soon man.

First of all, suicide is never worth it.
Secondly, I've been in your situation.

I had found no joy in life. I felt nothing. I was an emotionless rock.
At the time, I was fairly certain that I was a sociopath.

What did I do to get out of it?
I stopped holding myself up indoors. I stopped being anti-social. I stopped being comfortable. I stopped being comfortable with how bad I felt.
I took a stand against myself and fought against myself.
I made social-anxiety my bish.

I put myself out there. I made myself become social. I actually started talking to people.
The more I put myself out there and stopped focusing on the past, the better things got.
Before I had all but two friends, and a handful of online friends. Now I have a fairly large group of solid friends that I can count on, and a lot of really great online friends as well.

I started to live life to the fullest. I started to live out my life for how it's supposed to be lived.

Get yourself out there, man. Eventually you'll find a girl and this phase will be what it is: A phase.
If you have to, change up your situation. Think outside the box. And more importantly, stop being alone. There's one billion people out there within your age-range. One billion possible people to meet and befriend. One billion possibilities for new experiences.
Living in solitude won't bring you that. You have to force yourself out of that bubble, out of that castle you've built around yourself, and just have fun.

I don't know how, but she makes all her armor and weapons out of worbla. She has info on her Facebook page and tumblr about how she goes about it. She also has a book that costs, IIRC, $5.

My dad and I made a 6'4" buster sword out of wood, and covered it in cardboard. The woodwork holds up perfectly, but cardboard is ratty. The cardboard has mostly held together these past 6 or so years, and can be replaced.

The Dollar Store style of foam swords have a rod of some sort in the middle of them.
I suggest getting long and thin dowels from a local home improvement store and using that.

The right sized dowels will be light enough and sturdy enough for the foam weapons.

There's a few people who used PVC piping instead, which is also great.
Although PVC will be much, much wider than a dowel.

If I were you, I'd get creative with a dowel and some foam and duct-tape.
#146957 to #146956 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Wooden rods, really. They just come in an assortment of widths and lengths.
Get a few really thin dowels to use for support for the foam weapons, and they should hold fairly well when using them.

As far as making, you could definitely go for a more realistic approach and copy real-life swords and weapons. Make it look like a legit sword/ axe.
When it comes to creation, you can either look up something on instructables or just go on your own. If you go on your own it'll be a decent learning experience.
User avatar #147048 to #146957 - gabemczombie (07/28/2014) [-]
Since we're going to use them for sparring, do you know about any ways to make them harder?

Some of the pictures in the comment above, for example that dagger, looked very fragile
User avatar #147256 to #147048 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/29/2014) [-]
PVC would make them harder, although they wouldn't hit as hard, so you could look into a thick(er) dowel when buying. The thicker dowel would add weight and strength. The PVC would decrease weight and add strength.
If you're looking to hit hard, you probably want a thick wooden dowel.

As for the links I posted, those are more examples. You by no means have to follow them.
It's just there to show you how others made it.
As I said, get some foam, a few thick wooden dowels, some duct tape, and get crafty!
User avatar #147502 to #147256 - gabemczombie (07/30/2014) [-]
I suspect that a sword is way simpler than an axe
#147507 to #147502 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/30/2014) [-]
The ax would require some craftsman ship, for sure.
Much more than the Sword would take.

You could cut a thin and long dowel into smaller pieces.
Then take those smaller pieces and cut the ends. (As shown in the picture; It's a quick sketch I made, but hopefully conveys the point.)

Then interlace them in the curve of the ax, use some Gorilla Glue/ Wood Glue to glue them together, then cover it with Styrofoam.

Your biggest issue here would be support for the ax head.
You could probably use screws to connect the ax head to the main dowel/ handle. Then cover any open areas between dowels with glue.

It's entirely possible, but would take a lot of work. You could even find some smaller pieces of lumber, instead of dowels, to use for the ax head.
PVC would excel in this area if it weren't so thick. If you could find something fairly thin, then maybe go with PVC.
User avatar #147508 to #147507 - gabemczombie (07/30/2014) [-]
Wouldn't it also be possible to use smaller dowels within the head of the axe for further support?

Maybe a metal rod would be more suited for the task than wood
User avatar #147509 to #147508 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/30/2014) [-]
You could.

Metal would be stronger, although it'd hurt way more than wood. If you were to use any metal in it, then try and keep it limited.
You're looking for a foam play weapon to hit people with, after all.

While you could swing harder with metal inside, you have to note that it'll probably hurt a lot more.
User avatar #147511 to #147509 - gabemczombie (07/30/2014) [-]
Would serve my friend right..

But i would only use metal on the core for support since i'm considering a great axe. Inside the head would just be small wooden dowels for safety reasons.

Also, speaking of safety, shields. What would you reccomend there?

I'll try to sum this up:

My gf has been seeing his ex ever since we started dating. He is a vulture waiting her to come back with him, as she did several times before. The difference this time is she started dating someone (me) so I expected her to stop going out with him, but I told her that she could do it progressively, as she thinks he's her friend.

That was two months ago, now I'm tired of reminding her that she should have stopped seeing him weeks ago, but she says she's not "emotionally prepared" for that because she's stressed with other problems. But that excuse was given to me before by her, so I gave her an ultimatum. By the end of the next month I want him out of her life, as it's doing good to anybody, or I will be the one going.

While I think I'm in the right, and I'm prepared to accept the risk of her letting me go, I don't feel so good about this, extortion was never a good way for me. Should have I taken another way to solve this, FJ? Or has she gone too far?

Apologize my english. Ty.
User avatar #146946 to #146924 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Her being friends with her ex isn't necessarily a bad thing, although here's the biggest red flag:

> "She says she's not "emotionally prepared" for that because she's stressed with other problems."

You should be that person for her. You should be the person to help her through the good times and bad.
That's half the reason why people date others in the first place. For the emotional support. By being able to be completely open and honest with someone.
You should seek that in only the person you're dating.

This is where many, many people go wrong. Something happens in their relationship and they shelter themselves, and in that downtime, instead of bringing their problems to their 'significant other,' they outsource it and find someone else.

The quickest way to ruin a relationship is to shelter yourself from them, or to seek elsewhere when it feels broken, instead of trying to fix it.

You did right by giving her an ultimatum, although she probably isn't mature enough to choose to stay with you.
Either way you put it, if she's out seeking to fill gaps that could have been repaired, then she's using you right now. She hasn't gone for her ex yet because he's lacking in an area that you make up for. She hasn't chosen you over her ex because you're lacking in an area that he makes up for.
Don't give her the satisfaction of having both. You gave her an ultimatum, but all that's going to do is let her stall for more time.
User avatar #146950 to #146946 - erikus (07/27/2014) [-]
That is a formidable analysis of the situation.

First of all I support the idea of exs being friends, but it has some requirements, like you can't be friend of your ex just after the relationship ends. You need time for feelings to vanish and then move on. In this case, this didn't happen, of course, and they have been together for 4 years (she'd leave him and then he'd beg her to come back, all during these years) .

I trust her in the sense that she wouldn't cheat me, or date me if she wanted other guy. But having his presence in my relationship with her just make things awkward and unconfortable.

I think she's not a bad person, but I guess she's inmature. Anyway as I said I accept the risk and if she doesn't choose me, well, I guess I am not losing a lot.

But thanks, really, your perspective is really clarifying.
User avatar #146945 to #146924 - marinepenguin (07/27/2014) [-]
What you are doing is perfectly acceptable.

My current girlfriends first was on her ass for years after he broke up with her. She'd leave guys for him and then he'd immediately back away for months, and the cycle would continue when she got another guy. Two years after they broke up we got together and he started wanting to hang out and talk to her and stuff, and she was going to fall for it again. Until I confronted her about it, and confronted the guy about it too (he's a solid foot shorter and 60 pounds lighter so he didn't want to see me very much). Now she finally got away from him and he just kind of obsesses over her, and it's been a year and a half since then.

So the point of the story is that this shit happens a lot and I think you are completely in the right here. She needs to detach herself from him, or you will detach yourself from her.
User avatar #146947 to #146945 - erikus (07/27/2014) [-]
Thanks dude.

I've been told a lot by friends that maybe they are just friends. But I think you can't be friends with your ex who you dumped just 2 months ago. Also I'm pretty sure he wants her back so it's a false friendship to me. Anyway if we break up I want it to be because we didn't get along, not because some creepy asshole wouldn't let her alone.
User avatar #146951 to #146947 - marinepenguin (07/27/2014) [-]
I can understand that, but most people don't like it when their significant others are friends with their exes. Most people think it's weird, and that they still hold feelings for them.

You made your decision and now it's up to her if she wants to maintain relations with her ex, or continue being with you. Good luck man.

yeah man, honestly this chick is getting brain washed by this other dude. has happen to me before. what i did was i beat the living crap out this dude to let her go. best thing ever i did. know i would NOT recommend this, cause this causes more problems, and she can always go back to him.

"emotionally attached" thats some bullshit man! if you were "emotionally attached" think you still love the person that you/they left you? come on man, should tell her to stop answering his calls. cause im assuming he's brain washing her with old memories n shit. if she doesnt liten to you man, well its time to let this chick go. cause she honestly doesn't appreciate you, and respect you as a boyfriend.

I honestly think you did it really well. If you're just a rebound or she's not letting go of her ex because she still holds feelings for her, I think letting her decide is the way to go. If she leaves, you're not wasting anymore time. If she stays, she wants you. If she doesn't do it, you know she's still not over it and can break it off or talk about it more and find out what happens next.

Facebook is giving me shit about "logging in on another device". I input my birthday, and then it tells me that it doesn't match up with my account. Is there any way I can bypass this security thing? Otherwise, I'm screwed.

You're kind of out of luck if you gave Facebook a fake birthday.
I'm not sure how to bypass it...
User avatar #146931 to #146930 - lobselvith (07/27/2014) [-]
The birthday on my facebook is right, though. So I don't even know why I'm having this issue in the first place.
User avatar #146916 to #146912 - lobselvith (07/27/2014) [-]
I can't because of this birthday thing.

>met girl
>we talk and interact a bit
>hug
>i console her for her mother who had died in cancer
>i decide to take it to the next level
>ask her out
>"when we're both doing better"
>goes off and sits down with another groups of girls and she is visibly ecstatic
>come back to the same place (mental hospital we were both incarcerated in) and she barely contacts me
I have a suspicion that she feels this will get more serious and that she then has trouble processing it like. She is in love with me too I think and she can feel it, but she just... she has trouble expressing it. That's what I think was going on. I now welcome speculations, I'm out to find the Truth and not what pleases me. But since she was initially so ecstatic, what would be different? Maybe she feels safe with me right now and because of that we don't have to interact all the time, much like my parents don't interact all the time?
User avatar #146972 to #146894 - hoponthefeelstrain (07/28/2014) [-]
she's in a mental hospital... obviously some things aren't exactly right... just give her some time to come around and get her stuff together.
User avatar #146961 to #146894 - misticalz ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
yeah no one is obviously mentally okay there.
I wouldn't want to get into people's emotions at a mental hospital bud

yeah how about ya don't try to pick up chicks at a mental hospital you fuck

maybe she isn't ready for relationship, maybe she wants to sort out her problems first and feels that dating would just complicate things. Give her some time and try talking it out to her
User avatar #146898 to #146895 - cognosceteipsum ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Then I will do other things in the meanwhile and live my own life
User avatar #146899 to #146898 - malimrav (07/27/2014) [-]
It doesn't mean she doesn't like you, you should definitely keep in touch with her if you you think she is in love with you.
Living your own life is always a good thing, best of luck to you mate
User avatar #146900 to #146899 - cognosceteipsum ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Thanks man. Yeah, I have her on facebook and I'm probably going to be signed out of the hospital any of these days really, so there's no biggie, we can take a break
Thanks man. And to you I give advice: listen extra hard to songs, there may be a hidden meaning
User avatar #146897 to #146895 - cognosceteipsum ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Alright, you're probably right man, thanks brother and peace be upon you

I feel like, I'm super fucking bland. Like, I can hold a conversation with people pretty easily. They go something along the lines of, "So what are your hobbies and interests". I mean, I don't exactly have any interests that girls or possibly guys would be interested in. I mean, I like guns and vidya games and I don't dare say I like japanese cartoons. Naturally these things kill a conversation generally.

Should I feel this way, or like should I just forget about it? Also, texting people can be hard for me since it's sorta hard to carry a conversation through text, especially if it's a long distance relationship.

Reading all your comments you sound a lot like me. The best thing I found is just spout some bullshit you wouldn't normally say. For instance, if someone asked me whether I got a new job or something I'd usually just say "Yeah", but I'd maybe just expand it by saying "Yeah, the interview was a pain in the ass" which usually leads to them asking questions or bringing up their own experiences. Just add some extra details, enough to open up another part of the conversation.
#146886 to #146884 - minutes ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Let them talk. Ask questions mostly and throw in some experiences you made. At a party, a really good thing to talk about are previous partys if they contained something worth mentioning.
User avatar #146887 to #146886 - ipostcp (07/27/2014) [-]
I don't really like to drink or party in general.
#146889 to #146887 - minutes ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Concerts, events, generally funny storys are all good topics. I mean you don't sit at home EVERY day right? Just talk about these few days where you went out and had fun.

I had a bad upbringing and didn't have a very good childhood and teenage years. I don't exactly have anything pleasant to say about those years. It's actually really sad now that I think about it.   
   
I have a few work stories, but like, nobody can relate to them. Besides, not a lot of people find my humour funny.

Well you can still always ask questions i guess. Maybe you should find more hobbys then? I mean it's never too late to join a club or pick up another activity.

Trust me when I say, I would really enjoy something new, but the thing is... I work like 6 days a week, I'm saving up for college and I'm currently waiting to start my GED program. I'm practicing driving and I'm also possibly looking at an apartment. I'm just very busy you know?   
   
It sucks, it really does.   
   
Thanks for the help anyway though. I just wanted to know if I sorta am boring or something.

Depends on the parties you're going to; All of the parties I go to have no alcohol/ drugs.
Change up your friends, man.

Try moving across a continent. I have like 2 friends here, and one of them I barely talk to.

I'm thinking about beginning to write but I don't know where to start. My teachers always said I was good at writing but that was always based on given topics and some time has passed so I don't know if my writing has gotten any worse. I hear fan-fictions are a good start but I also hear fan-fiction is pretty pathetic. Aside from that, I only have a few very rough ideas for stories but nothing solid. Any ideas, suggestions, or tips?
User avatar #146896 to #146883 - malimrav (07/27/2014) [-]
Short stories are good start. You don't need some super original idea for practicing. Just come up with some idea and build on it.

Did I fuck up too badly, or can I fix this?
>meet female friend of older brother
>shes attractive, about 7-8/10
>hang out with her over summer
>rates me 7/10 and probably would bang
>a year passes
>contact her by phone
>catch up a bit
>remember she had this thing where she would answer ANY question you had about her. and I mean ANYTHING.
>asked her if she was dtf
>she didnt respond
> I panicked a bit and kept saying how she could do worse and it would be a one time thing and what not
>lied to her that I was high
>she hasn't said a word to me since
What do?

She wasn't that close.

User avatar #146881 to #146877 - thatnigger (07/27/2014) [-]
Maybe she changed in a year and doesn't have any emotions towards you right now. I think you rushed and I dunno if it can be fixed.
