I broke up with my gf (general breakup thread) - Page 158

post #2356 of 3570
long distance can only work if it's for a period with a definite end, after which you'll be together full time. and even then it almost always won't

Just broke up with my gf of 10 months today. It sucks, really sweet girl and we are really compatible as far as personalities go, but long distance is doing us in. It would have required her to move to Virginia and there's not many career opportunities in her field of work there. This sucks.

It's nothing compared to how tough married life is, especially when you get married at 22...

Step one: Girl gets pregnant... EDIT: I'm not saying this is a good idea, I'm saying it happens. Or couple is hardcore Christian (know this couple, got married at 20 and 19, baby before 20th birthday), one is engaged at 21 and have been dating for maybe 7 years, so I can see where they think they made the right choice. And they might be right after all. Another couple getting there has one member being very conservative and the other wanting to... progress physically.

Sometimes it's there dude. Love knows no age. I mean, the odds are certainly stacked against you, as your partner and you will change immensely from 22-24 (from personal experience) and I imagine you continue to change as you grow older. But my parents married at 24 and 19, respectively, and have been married for 31 years and are as happy as can be. It's not impossible.

I agree, in theory. I definitely think it would have been a much easier thing to do in decades past. I know my grandparents married right out of high school and stayed madly in love until the day my grandfather died of Alzheimer's disease 8 years ago; my grandma even needed to go on Prozac the loss was so devastating. I just think today it is much different. Our culture, society and values have changed greatly in the past century, and I would say it hasn't been a change that's necessarily in favor of the married life.

The world has changed in that nobody fights for what is right anymore. Everybody thinks that anytime something gets tough they can quit and say "on to the next one." It's stupid.

Yes, yes, yes. I do always see myself, and my values, having been a better fit for growing up in my grandparents era. That said, I don't allow myself to be a product of my time, either.

post #2367 of 3570
I wouldn't mind getting married under 25 but I'd like my spouse to be as mature as I am.

Being single is so much more work than being in a relationship. Currently trying to deal with 3 girls. I can't handle it. I want them all to go away.
post #2369 of 3570
You banging them all?
