Triphammer: when you say you "banged her," does that mean you shot her?
2003-03-24 05:04:36 PM  
i sure hope this story doesnt get out.

i dont need any more skinny blonde girls threatening to pepper spray me at frat parties.
2003-03-24 05:04:38 PM  
OMG. for real. wtg romeo

DeeDee: Pepper spray is just as effective. Lose the gun, seriously.
2003-03-24 05:05:56 PM  
I'd like to see him cut through this..

Maveno Consider yourself backed up. I don't know if Kathmandu has any crazy laws, but I would imagine arguing against premeditation would be a tough sell here in the states.

Do you think Bob Seger still wants to go there?

I've been with the same girl I met online since I was 13. It's been 4 years now. Absolutely beautiful. Currently engaged, planning to live together, and completely in love.

Internet relationships work if they're given as much priority and respect as "real" relationships. Cybering all night , lying about your image or your personality, or being a completely different person does not result in a meaningful, loving relationship.

However, constant time together, a variety of conversations, and absolute sugary sweetness do. You'll be spending a lot on phone, internet, mail, gifts, media, though.

How many couples have a 4 disc soundtrack though? Or can remember each and every conversation they've had? Not many. I wouldn't trade any of this for all the flesh and bone in the world..

Not that I think the flesh and bone I've had is not good..it's great <3 Mmm, Sarah.

Peper spray works, but not as well as a 180 grain hollow and especially not if the guy is on PCP or speed. Why else should women carry purses anyways?
2003-03-24 05:09:40 PM  
You've got Mail 2 starring Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie.
2003-03-24 05:09:59 PM  
Ah yes - consider what I may have been "shooting" her with, my friend.

2003-03-24 05:13:34 PM  
Sounds like a reasonable response. Stupid tease!
2003-03-24 05:14:16 PM  
Withlovesarareku: You should go ahead and start saving for the therapy your gonna need later on.
2003-03-24 05:14:22 PM  
Tigger, I was only going to point out that at 17 perhaps he may not be that qualified to dispense advise on relationships, but... hey, maybe other 17 year olds can heed his advise. I'm not going to attack him, tempting as it might be.
2003-03-24 05:14:31 PM  
My wife and I met on the internet 5 years ago. We are very happy.

I also met my gf before that on the internet... She's now my sister-in-law after we introduced her to my brother-in-law. heh. Small world.
2003-03-24 05:15:23 PM  
"awaiting cynical/realistic (take your pick) attacks on Withlovesarareku "

I'll jump in and share that I too am with the same girl I met online. Our daughter turns 3 next month.
2003-03-24 05:15:31 PM  
Triphammer: I met a chick on the internet once through a friend. I dropped 200 bucks, flew to Arizona, and she was a pig. So that was that. Yes, I did bang her, but that's beside the point -

And here, ladies and gents, do we have the major difference between men and women. If she was a total pig, why did you want to bang her?
2003-03-24 05:15:33 PM  
Withlovesarareku: How many couples have a 4 disc soundtrack though? Or can remember each and every conversation they've had? Not many

irc logs do not count as remembering
2003-03-24 05:15:43 PM  
HAHA Big Honkey, I choose you
2003-03-24 05:18:25 PM  
Never said I wanted to bang her, Chameleon - I felt pretty bad for her after I told her that I simply wasn't sexually attracted to her the way she was to me. Pity sex, I think it's called.
2003-03-24 05:18:34 PM  
I'm testing bold. Sorry.
2003-03-24 05:18:44 PM  

Hence why I resisted the temptation, although did encourage others somewhat...
2003-03-24 05:18:46 PM  

But the question is....Are you going to hack her to death when she wants a new man??

That's what we want to know, who cares about that love-schlub.
2003-03-24 05:19:26 PM  
with all these testimonials for online dating/relationships, cracKness can come to the conclusion that there just might be hope for him :)

/19 yr old who has nothing (not to mention no one *rimshot*) :p

"Police said Thapa then tried unsuccessfully to take his own life."
See, this is what I'm talking about when I say that these kids today have no real skills, no follow through, they just aren't motivated. He killed the girl, but couldn't quite manage to kill himself. Jeez, hell in a hand basket...
2003-03-24 05:22:18 PM  
Its stupid people like this that give the Lifetime channel endless ideas for more morbid woman movies.....that never show any boobies.
2003-03-24 05:23:07 PM  
Now it's gone from dark to just plain disturbing in here.

I blame Maveno.

I kid, I kid.
2003-03-24 05:24:02 PM  
You've got jail!
2003-03-24 05:26:43 PM  
I'd say she just got pranked! Oh c'mon don't be a Stifly Stifferson!

BTW...good move on his part, bringing the knives to the last-minute attempt at wooing. Bravo.
2003-03-24 05:29:14 PM  
Oops. I was thinking You've Got Mail but posted Sleepless in Seattle. Why didn't someone tell my I posted the wrong pic?

I now know I couldn't rely on any of you to tell me if I had a booger hanging off my nose, spinach stuck between my teeth, or toilet paper stuck to my shoe.
2003-03-24 05:29:46 PM  
DeeDee: It's the culture of fear. I don't like Michael Moore, but that part of his documentary was right on. If pepper spray won't stop someone, then a gun probably won't either. Also, this way when you get dumped or fired by some a-hole, you won't go out and get drunk and then find that you have a handy gun in your purse. I'm guessing you keep this gun loaded, too. Otherwise it would be useless for self-defense right? Seriously, it seems like you're just asking for a terrible accident. Also, I hope you have a concealed weapons license. That is all.
2003-03-24 05:29:48 PM  
Agreed Garanimal!

I love to prank people for hours in my basement! :D

Hey ProvenItchFighter, want to meet up tonight? You know I'm dyyyyingggg to meet you!
2003-03-24 05:32:53 PM  
Sudie...there's spinach on your nose and a booger in your teeth.
2003-03-24 05:33:26 PM  
I don't get what so many people have against long-distance relationships.

I met my current girlfriend in an IRC chat in August. We got to know each either quite well... I probably know her better than most anyone else in my life. I visited her for five days in February, and guess what? Nothing could have gone better. She was even better than expected, and we got along even better than we could have ever thought. She's not a pedophiliac half-ogre, and neither am I. We're both the same age, really. There's absolutely no problem with what we have.

Besides... people don't realize how much strength it takes to actually go through with something like this. Do you realize how it feels to not even be able to see the person you love on a regular basis? You probably don't, and let me tell you, it can suck sometimes. But things are going fine.

So, if you don't know what you're talking about, please do shut up. You have no right to say these things.

As far as this incident... yes, it is horrible. But are the only violent people the ones you meet online? No... there are a LOT of incidents of this kind of violence without that factor involved.
2003-03-24 05:33:46 PM  
Sudie: It wasn't a mistake... same script, different title.
2003-03-24 05:34:22 PM  
Cutco is the way to go.
2003-03-24 05:34:49 PM  
No, I won't kill her with knives or any form of sharp weapon. If she ever wanted a new man, then I'd realize that her need was true, because I trust her and respect her thoughts and emotions.

And as for the comment about IRC logs, most of our conversations are on the phone, we only used the Internet for about a year. And we recall them by memory, not by tape or saved files.

But truthfully, the number of sucessful long distance relationships out there is larger than the "I met her, then I killed her", but lesser than the "I met her, but she wasn't anything like she was online".

The most important part in a relationship, online or offline, is honesty. Any relationship that works out in this world depends on it.

Now I am waiting for someone to talk about posting "boobies" links of their significant others....FARK..what a world..heeh.
2003-03-24 05:36:59 PM  
Gohanmastaflex Dude, chill. Who is saying anything about online dating being so bad?

ProvenItchFighter and I are in love..been years now. We're going to meet tonight actually. :)
2003-03-24 05:37:30 PM  
Hey, Maveno, you Veg-e-matic of love.

Bring it on, I'll bring my Salad Shooter and we'll make mounds of coleslaw.
2003-03-24 05:37:36 PM  
*brushes nose, blows teeth*

Thanks, ProvenItch. My faith in cyber-relationships is now resored.
2003-03-24 05:40:28 PM  
" Why didn't someone tell my I posted the wrong pic? "

I dunno, maybe because every guy that knows the difference is too busy "in love" and every other guy HATES both movies. I believe "Sleepless" is on my top 5 most despicable movies of all time. "You've got mail" is probably close, but I haven't seen it (more aptly "I wasn't forced to watch it").
2003-03-24 05:40:50 PM  
I'm far too shallow to fall in love with someone online. I wanna know the hotness factor, baby! Woowoo!

He probably sent her a picture of the Nepali equivelent of Brad Pitt. "uh, yeah, this is what I look like..." When she saw the real stuff, she wanted no piece o' dat.
2003-03-24 05:41:26 PM  
resored = restored

So what your saying, Courtney Cox-Zucker, is that no one else caught my error, either.

Yeah, it was essentially the same plot.
2003-03-24 05:42:28 PM  
you likey my veggy chopper Itchy? ::wink wink::

I'll bring the duct tape and ro....errrr, I mean carrots and lettuce.

I've carried for years, and been pissed off many times, but have never opened fire, nor brandished my firearm. Can't you just accept that some people are responsible, and have the right to cary?
2003-03-24 05:47:23 PM  
Chameleon - ok, fine. I'm going to woo you over the internet and never send you a picture. You have no idea what I look like, but that's cool because neither one of us is shallow like that, remember? After we've established a relationship in which we really care about each other (which we would, not being shallow), I'm going to fly you out here so we can meet. Remember, you've never seen what I look like.
The inability (or lack of desire) for one to fall in love online isn't always because someone is shallow, believe me. If I were a pig, you'd humor me and be nice until you flew off, and then I'd never hear from you again. In my mind, that's perfectly fine.

Some people clearly can't handle that possibility. Chop chop.

2003-03-24 05:47:45 PM  
"No, I won't kill her with knives or any form of sharp weapon"

So bludgeoning isn't out then... Perhaps you could smash her head with a toaster? :p
