Dear suicide thread,

Nobo's wedding site is possibly the sweetest thing I have ever read and you damn well better read it too!
In other news, I am beginning to think that fate is trying to tell me something: the girl I've spent three days solid trying to track down is tantalisingly just out of reach. I've been sent a direct link to her facebook profile but it just takes me back to the homepage (possibly overzealous security settings to protect herself from people just like me?). So I guess never mind?

Yours,
Never Trying This Again

So I'm going to Australia to visit my lady on Oct. 9th for 2 weeks, which neatly coincides with our 2 year anniversary; we'll be going to Cairns, Brisbane and Sydney.  I'm crazily excited about it! My question: should I buy a present for our anniversary, or is the 1500 plane ticket and the fact that I'm paying for our hotels and such a gift enough? I'm not trying to say "my presence is a gift," but I am dropping a couple grand to be with her...

Get her something sweet and thoughtful but don't go all out. Flowers are always nice if she's into that kind of thing; no need to spend masses but it might be awkward if she's got you something and you're just like "well here I am".

Nobo - how did you do it?

I don't even know what to tell you because everything worked out better than I could have ever hoped for.

When I started college I was still with my high school girlfriend. By then we had been dating for roughly a year. Stacey and I lived in the same dorm our freshmen years so we ran into each other within the first month.  From the first time I saw her I was completely and utterly smitten. I didn't even want a relationship, I just wanted to be around her and to be her friend. She had a smile that lit up the room and she was the most genuinely nice and caring person I have ever met. We had a class together so we would spend time studying, and then late nights up talking over instant messenger. Over a few weeks we had a really close friendship. There was no pressure there because I had a gf and that made me off limits to her, and her off limits to me.

A quick sidenote about high school gf. I had a crush on her since 7th grade or so, and as a result the relationship was very one sided. I completely changed my image and group of friends for her, and she pretty much got whatever she wanted out of me. I even took her back after she cheated on me. So there was (and still is) a lot of resentment built up over how I let myself be treated by her. But anyway...

So as my friendship with Stace grew, my relationship with hs gf (who went to college 2 hours away) crumbled. I didn't feel like taking the train to see her... when I did all I could think about was Stacey... etc.  While hanging out late one night Stace let it slip that she liked me. So I was stuck having to choose between a girl that regularly fought with me on the phone for 2-3 hours at a time, or someone that I really enjoyed being with. It wasn't a difficult choice. So that was the 24th of November, 2002.

The relationship itself has been fairly smooth. I think the fact that it was built on friendship and respect is a huge key. We were on the same campus for 4 years in college, then only 1 hour away when we were in grad school, now we're separated by a 5 hour flight while I work in NC while she finishes school in MI. I think the fact that we both go out of our ways to do small things to make the other person feel special, aka a good morning text, a goodnight phone call, a surprise in the mail, and occasional visits make the distance easier to deal with. And thats what we were like when we lived together as well.

Thats probably more than you wanted to know, but if a guy like me (loud, abrasive, polish, meathead, frat boy) can get an amazing girl, you guys (and girls) shouldn't have a problem :)


I've told you this before Norbert, but I'm so so happy for you!

Yes you have, and it means a lot. Having a great gf along with great buddies/e-buddies makes me a pretty happy guy.

Seriously, RedLion, if you're spending that much money anyway, a few bucks more for a nice little present won't hurt.

Hey Nobo, congratulations! (if I haven't said that before)

Dear you wanna die thread,

What do i do about back hair.  leave it? wax it? shave it?

I think it depends on your back hair to chest hair situation. If you are super hairy all around, then waxing/shaving your back will just look weird. If you have a super hair chest, but only some spots of back hair (like me), then just shave the areas on your back that you are unhappy with. Waxing isn't really all that painful, but its expensive. Then again, there are certain areas you cannot reach with a razor.


also: thank you everyone :)
