I recommend this 1997 album. It's just been re-released too.
I bought that in the special edition medicine packet packaging (Ladies and Gentlemen we are floating in space BP it was called).
I NEVER listened to it... dunno why, just never got round to it!
Take a nice holiday. Treat yourself.
Leave the phone at home so you can't do anything silly like phoning her and pleading! (A holiday could be a good opportunity to notch up some pity s@x
When you get home, enrol on a course at a local college to keep youself busy. (Cooking is a good one. You will learn to enjoy cooking for yourself and probably get to meet people and share recipes/cooking for each other etc.)
Whenever you meet mutual friends be upbeat, don't mention the ex-gf at all but always ask how the dog is getting along now.
Spend any money you saved up for engagement ring etc on a better hifi.
Never trust her further than you could throw the dog, ever again. Even if you got back together you would spend the entire time wondering when she would leave again. That is no way to be.
Don't let her make you lose trust in future relationships though. They won't be her.
Watch this from 5:55 onwards. It won't help.
Of course we only have your side of this and she is probably getting lots of similar advice and sympathy from her friends who are probably convinced she is the victim.
Sod her I say. And sod the dog too.
(PS you should reserve the right to not take anything I say at all seriously.)
"But trust me on the sunscreen"... might be a useful song!? (Can't remember the title though)
Hi. Just an update. The girlfriend came round this afternoon and we had a good chat. The reason why she left was becuase she was fed up staying in everynight watching films. She said if we were to get married she didnt want her life to be watching tv. We used to always go out and do things but for the last 8 months it had been the same thing. Come home from work, cook dinner then sit and watch movies all night. I couldnt agree more, I have actually felt the same recently but i didnt do anything about it. So she is gonna stay with her friend for another week and if/when she comes back, we have to go out and do things together. Doesnt need to cost money as we are trying to save for a better house. ( she used the words 'we are trying to save for a better house' so im staying positive that she wants to stay together.) So as someone said on this forum -'sometimes a break can make a relationship stronger', im thinking this to be true and im looking forward to the future and having my girlfriend back and going out together instead of spending most of our lives infront of stevie....the tv.
So there you go.....you were getting worried about nothing. Result!
Of course, if she ever sees this thread he's scuppered all over again...
Oh to watch a film...
Maybe just me, but I get the feeling this couple are still in their twenties. Watching a film together is quite a treat after that!
The owls are not what they seem...
And if all else fails, you can marry stevie
Well i do love Stevie. He has brought me and will bring me, some very good HD beauty to my eyes.
Yeah im 26. Still young, thats the reason she feels we shouldnt be watching movies every night. Even my parents go out more than us. lol.
If it's a male tv, which I assume it is, you couldn't get married, you could get a civil partnership though.
Nope he's fine all Hifi and AV gear is female
Wow, she felt the need to leave because of that; it seems an extreme response and, having discussed it, she's still staying with a friend???
I hope you're right and she needs the break and will be happier with your commitment to go out more, pity she didn't say sooner, it's not like you can enjoy balmy summer evenings, walking by the river (assuming you live near a river). Low cost options for going out are somewhat reduced as the nights become darker sooner.
Make sure when she next comes round that Stevie is OFF, and as soon as she arrives, grab your coat and take her out, plan it now!
Best of Luck....(oh to be 26 again....)
Have to say, she's got a point - mid to late 20's is no time to be sat at home watching movies ad nauseum. You can look forward to doing that when you're 40, trust me!
Are you not into pubbing or clubbing - when I was 26 I couldn't imagine evenings spent at home... funny how age catches up with one...
buy some canoes and a power kite and a digital slr.
If she comes back or not, who cares - they'll be lots of fun...!
