I’m sorry to say that I’ve been disgustingly busy with work as of late. I work at a video game publisher and we’re about to get into our second closed beta. If you’re interested in MMORPGs or fucking awesome quest text, visit http://aika.gpotato.com for more information.
Consequently, I haven’t been able to answer all of your questions; I’ve decided to take a short break from Geek Counseling until we get this game up and running. It kind of sucks – I haven’t showered in weeks.
Anyhow, I can leave you beautiful people with some nuggets of advice that will hopefully suffice until I get back:
Misery loves company, but people don’t like people who are miserable all of the time. Keep your head up.
Don’t sit there. Stop waiting around. You want it? Fucking go for it.
Be yourself, but don’t be scared to try new things. Oftentimes, people don’t change – they simply mature into the person they are supposed to be.
Don’t fuck your sister.
I’ll see you gorgeous bastards in mid-March. Good luck, Geeks!
I think my girlfriend is cheating on me. She’s constantly hanging around other guys and she’s very secretive about her whereabouts. She doesn’t pick up her phone all of the time when I call her. I ask her if she’s cheating on me and she just rolls her eyes and says no, but I don’t believe her.
I met this guy and he’s absolutely amazing. He makes me laugh, he’s so smart, we connect really well. There is just one problem: he has a girlfriend on the other side of the country. I knew this but I still hooked up with him. He tells me that she’s a bitch and that he likes me a lot. Now the problem is that she’s visiting him next week. It makes me feel awful. She bought plane tickets and everything and she’s staying for a couple of days. What do I do?
I was always the quiet, shy, geeky kid who was always picked on. I was overweight, had long hair, and bad acne. Girls were repulsed by me and classmates often used me as the butt of their jokes to make themselves look better. Now I’m in the best shape of my life. I can bench 300 pounds, deadlift 400, I can run 4 miles in a half hour.. the person I was, and I am now, are so far apart. The most ironic part, is I am in art school, majoring in game design. A school filled with people like the person I was.
I still struggle with my older self. My confidence comes and goes. Sometimes I feel like if I’m trying to be too confident, I look like those douchebag jocks in high school that made me feel like crap. I’ve never yet had a girlfriend, never even kissed a girl. I don’t know how to approach them. I honestly don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve had girls take interest in me, even take initiative to flirt with me, and I just get so nervous and awkward that either A) they think I’m a stuck up asshole jock, that’s too good to talk to them or B) I’m weird.
I’m frightened by this; three years of college, and I have no experience with the opposite sex whatsoever. I’m six months away from graduating and I’m terrified of being alone for the rest of my life. I feel like I’m missing out. I know I’m an attractive guy; I get told all the time, and I try to be a good person, but I just have this thing about opening up. I’m just way too shy.
I won’t pretend that I’m not attracted to a pretty girl at times like most guys, and that can sometimes cloud my judgement. But I do know that I’d really just like to have a steady relationship with someone. I’m still a bit shy, and the idea of just approaching someone I don’t know anything about scares me. I’m very awkward when I’m uncomfortable, and I tend to stumble with words when I’m talking to a new girl that I am attracted too.
I hate to sound shallow, but quite frankly being a game art and design student, most of the girls in my major aren’t really what I would call appealing. It’s like I go through bouts of confidence. There are time where I can be absolutely charming, but I can never seem to hold that charm. Sometimes I don’t really know how to act. Girls seem to throw the word confidence around alot, but how do you be confident without overextending and being a douchebag?
I’ve had friends tell me at times that I can come off as a bit cocky. Maybe sometimes I try too hard to be a badass. I think it’s a combination of confidence, and not really knowing how to look, plus a billion other reasons.
My ex-gf pissed me the fuck off today. She asked me for her birth control pills ( I keep them for her ). For some reason it just set me on fire. I told her she was the reason I was mad. I told her I was mad because she wanted those pills so she can fuck her new midget boyfriend. I told her I was mad at her for everything she did to me. I told her I was mad at her that she didn’t respect me.
She said she lost respect for me the first time she cheated on me…. I AM SOOOOOOOOO PISSED!!!! Then she calls me an asshole. She said that stupid guy makes her happy and that they don’t fight. I told her of course they wouldn’t fight so early on. She makes me so mad. I told her that I didn’t want to be friends with someone that doesn’t have respect for me.
Have I just wasted the last 3 years of my life with her? I couldn’t hold that shit in because it has been bothering me for the past few days. Man I am so so angry. GAH what do I do? How do I deal with this?!?
Something is deeply wrong with me, Jamie. I set myself up to get hurt over and over. I just want it to stop. The only time I feel alive is when I am loving or when I am hurting. The moments in between I am just going through the motions of dying. Everything seems so pointless.
I go to the gym. But for what? I eat. For what? I go to school, I work, I play music, I game, I maintain friendships, etc. But none of it matters if I do not come home knowing that someone is waiting for me to share my days with. Sure, family is great but it is not the same love. It is eros I seek.
I’ve been caught between ideas, philosophy, beer bottles, and poetry that I’ve forgotten who I am.
WTF is my problem. Am I missing something? Seriously WTF?
It seems like everyone my age is exploring their sexual side. Their having (or trying to have) sex with anything and everything! This never interested me because I’ve always wanted to stick to one girl, but it seems like i should be expanding my horizons. What do you think?
