Damn it guys haha
I've been crushing from afar on the guy who delivers water to my office (lol), and he showed up yesterday while we were crazy busy so I only said like three words to him and he had someone working with him. I literally know nothing about him, but seriously, if he was training that other guy to take his route, I will probably cry. Time to drink four jugs of water so he has to come back, yeah?
One like and I’ll send my crush a risky text and then throw my phone into the cold dark night
Well shit I thought I was gonna be able to sit there for like 5 minutes at least without my hand being forced

How good are you at flirting between rapid bathroom breaks?
my buddy has been with a severe alcoholic for like two years now. it’s greatly affected our friendship because it’s hard to watch her. she shows zero signs of awareness and swears she doesn’t have a problem but it’s so bad that it has permanently affected her motor functions and she has been fired from two jobs in the last year from showing up to work obliterated. she has also cheated on him and allowed her guilt to manifest into a fear that he will cheat back, so she manipulates him out of doing anything without her.
his birthday was last week, and they had plans to go to dinner, but she was too drunk to go by 4 pm and asleep by 5. he snuck out without her and texted a girl that he had a crush on to meet him at the bar. they made out or whatever and have been hanging since then. she is aware he has a gf and plans to leave her, but i dont think she’s aware that he relies on his gf to pay half of the rent and can’t afford a place of his own, so he plans to remain with her for months until he has a nest egg saved up to move out.
this can not possibly work out. his current gf uses sex as a manipulation tactic CONSTANTLY. he is gonna go home from hanging with this new girl that he swears is the best person he’s ever met, then sleep with his current gf, and he is delusional enough to think this will work out for him.
i’ve got plans with him next Sunday and am gonna have to tell him how ridiculously stupid and shitty he is being. he’s gonna go from feeling like he has two options to being alone. and he’s gonna v much deserve it.
minorly edited to be less specific
Man, that's a whole pile of problems. Good on you for standing up to your friend on this though. We need more people who won't support their friends' shitty endeavours.
I’ve kept myself extremely busy lately. My boyfriend has been really busy too, and now that things are finally settling, loneliness and missing each other badly is hitting hard. He’s been home for six weeks and he’ll be back here in just over two months, but then it’ll be ages before we see each other again, until I go to London in November. I don’t want to feel this sad when I go to bed without him. We are not breaking up and we’re doing what we can to stay strong and connected. I feel like I’m finally thriving in my life, with my writing and studying something I’m actually passionate about, and it sucks that he’s not by my side right now. I needed a place to vent. We’re going to be okay. Obviously, long distance is hard. Just hasn’t felt this hard in a while
Damn. Good on you for planning on talking to him about it. That’s such a hard thing to do. My girlfriends close friend is going through some shit and it’s obvious to everyone she’s making the wrong choices but all you can do sometimes is make your opinion known and let them know you care for them and come from a good place and not a place of malice and that you support them as much as humanly possible.
i don't wanna talk about it sharkie
Jesus that's terrible
yeah he is nothing if not open to criticism, luckily. i genuinely don’t think he has a grasp of how messy this can get because he is still riding the high of “oh yeah that’s right, relationships can feel good!”. my biggest concern is this guy is cripplingly afraid of confrontation in a way i’ve never seen and also has some pretty severe social anxiety in general. he’s wanted to break up with his current partner since maybe six months in and just can’t. i remember in September her parents were gonna drop off her bed from home because she had recently moved in with him, and he legit was of the mind of “once she moves her furniture in, that’s it, i’m stuck”. like, NO THAT IS NOT HOW THAT WORKS.
i get the suspicion he hasn’t been totally forthcoming with the new girl either. the wording of his texts was just odd enough to make me think he withheld some details. it said she “knows of” his girlfriend but i could see him omitting that they were still together or how his gf is oblivious to any issues between them in order to not scare the new girl off immediately. guess i’ll find out next week
God damn. Good luck, Cam. Hope it goes well and hope he and his girlfriend are able to get the help they deserve.
