CrazyCracka420: OldManDownDRoad you sound like the guy in the comic that Cyno01 posted.

Why do you have so many close female friends?

Maybe it's because he uses the word "preggers"?

Nothing worse than teen angst.

Except reliving teen angst in a public forum.

Here's my take (and I know you were all just waiting idly, nervously, twiddling your digits in anticipation...):

1. A lot of you skimmed the article, especially the parts where she explained that he was a good looking and successful guy who has done well for himself. They DID stay friends, this is years later, and the note had been forgotten and rediscovered.
2. Her estimation is that the note is both awkward and sweet, while he just finds it flat out embarrassing, but in a shrug-your-shoulder kind of way, because he doesn't mind her publishing it.
3. She uses the note as a kind of lesson that we shouldn't read too hard into other people's intentions. She also notes that it was her problems for being imperceptive and distant that she didn't pay enough heed to him.
4. Farkers can't help heaping aspersions upon either and/or both for their insecurities and poor choices to help them feel better than themselves, even if it means willfully ignoring the central points of the article.
5. It's a free country. You're allowed not to like the article or it's subjects, whether or not you were able to glean any insight from it.
6. I assign much to much importance to my own opinion, which according to the CRACKED douche thread makes me douche. I can accept this.

tripleseven: I obsessed over my fiancée for about 3 months, while she avoided me.

Finally, one day it happened.  She gave reasons for the distance, which were extremely valid.

Not to encourage any sad sacks out there, but, just imagine if I had not continued in my pursuit.

It did get close, of course, to me sucking it up and walking away.

This was 12 years ago, and we're still together.

But not married. After 12 years. She must still have doubts ;-)

you'd be with someone else that'd probably make you just as happy?
