Hmmm. Yeah, I've often bitterly commented on the fact that Nicholas Sparks gets to be shelved in Fiction while every other romance is in ROMANCE. Many of which are far more film-worthy than his sappy tragedies.
Thank you so much for this interview. I worried for Allie during the long silence, and now to see her doing well enough to publish and enjoy the success of her book, and to be generally feeling okay, makes me happy. It also gives me hope that I'll be feeling better too.
On Sweet Dee
@Danzig! I also lost my Dee (not so much a drifting apart as a friend breakup) and it's the absolute worst. This story was really sweet. I was also relieved it wasn't a tragic ending.
Utterly brilliant. This made me guffaw.
I am sitting here in my work cubicle trying to suppress my laughter at that last line.
Mark + Dido = OTP
@nevergiveaninch I am so sorry. I'm still dealing with breaking up with my boyfriend and it hurt like a BITCH when I saw he was back on okcupid. It hurt even worse when he actually started dating people. But I think for only being a few weeks out, you're doing really well. It has been months for me and I'm still not over it. Hang in there... maybe try to start talking to other guys yourself, if you can handle it. Good luck.
@chevyvan I'm sorry you're going through a rough time too. :( Being mad can sometimes be even worse than being sad. Fighting is so emotionally exhausting. I hope you find a way to work things through whether it means you're together or apart. Thanks for the sympathy!
@Maladydee Thank you so much; I really appreciate the advice and sympathy. I did feel better once I started getting out and keeping distracted, though I didn't quite manage to get more social than going to the restaurant across the street with my roommate. Still... it's something. Thanks!
@nevergiveaninch Sorry I didn't see your reply earlier... I hope you've found some good ways to distract yourself this weekend. I've been marathoning Grey's Anatomy on Hulu and cuddling with my dog.
My ex boyfriend, who I am still 100% in love with (we broke up for situational reasons, not fighting or anything), has started dating someone else. I know it's all part of life, but it hurts. So. Bad. :( Lately the prospect of being on my own throughout the weekend just makes me feel scared, sick, and lonely. I used to be very independent... now I just miss him all the time. Sorry for the major downer post. I can't seem to pull myself out of this black hole of sadness/hurting. (Ugh, I know everyone says "go out! be social!" but that's like the last thing I want to do...)
