1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I usually eat Chinese food, she isn't a fran. I try not to go out unsupervised, I have a tendency to drink too much and act a bigger fool than normal.

    That's a coincidence, I also usually eat Chinese food!

    I ride my bike around town, maybe take the train to visit a couple of shrines or temples (which she has no particular interest in), and go to an izakaya for a drink or two with friends in the evening.

    Of course, we have a 7-month-old now, so any "away" time is usually the three of us. I might be able to visit some friends in Tokyo later this year, but only provided that we figure out a way to bathe the baby that doesn't require two adults. Maybe once she's able to sit up by herself, we can put a chair in the bathroom so she doesn't have to be held while my wife washes herself?


    How does it require two people to bathe a child? I do it by my self all the time.

    This is surprisingly fulfilling, especially with a rabbit instead of a dog.

    So, you turn the rabbit into "Chinese food," amirite? I guess if you ate Korean food instead, the dog would do. [​IMG]

    Whenever I begin to think being single is no longer for me...I'm reminded how much better it is...for me.

    Better question yet, what do you do while she is in the shower? Last time I installed a tie rack, reorganized the closet and cleaned the kitchen.

    Watch movies she has little or no interest in... Or that might scar her emotionally.

    Have a few more drinks than I would normally.

    Blast music and wander aimlessly on the internet.

    Go to a skatepark.

    Stay up way too late and wake up really early.

    Eat nothing but omelets, sandwiches, and pizza.

    Maybe take a day to peruse as many thrift stores as possible.

    Go to a hardcore or punk show and drop by the bar afterwards.

    Start missing her a few hours after she leaves.

    EDIT: ... oh yeah, and masturbate.

    on the contrary, i am lost when she's not around. i dont like socializing much save for the occasional football game/wings with buddies. only indulgence is 2 hr gym sessions when she's not around

    Married life sounds a little depressing.

    I'm very happy some people find this, but I don't ever want to be so close to anyone. Again.

    I won't hurt you [​IMG]

    But seriously, you should probably get over that.

    I tried but reality is often far different than my fantasy. Some things live with you...it is the way it is [​IMG]

    I'm sorry but in his case, I think it's pretty justifiable.

    Not sure what made me post that initially, but I live with this dilemma and it's awful. To a person who is as relationship oriented as I am being unable to really let myself delve into one is torture. Especially now since I'm being heavily pursued by someone I've been "seeing" for a while. I recently had the "I think we should stop..." conversation. But anyway. That's all for a different thread. [​IMG] When I WAS in a relationship I mostly listened to my music without headphones and had the TV far too loud when I was alone. Most other things were the same.

    W.T.F?!?!?!

    That is next level crazy there. I can't imagine going through something like that. How does something like that "just happen" out of the blue from a 4 year relationship?!

    Your guess would be only slightly worse than mine...I've been considering for a couple of months that I should write a letter or something but haven't been able to express myself nor to I believe I would ever get a real answer.

    oh holy hell CC - that's awful! I don't think I could ever get over something like that.

    It's been about 1.5yrs since and I'm over being distraught about it but the emotional damage just might be permanent. I'm a pretty easy going fellow and people would never guess I went through something so traumatic unless we begin discussing why I'm not in a relationship. Then people are all- [​IMG]

    That's cold. My heart goes out to you, for real. No one should have that type of shit happen to them. Bitch even took your dog!

    When she's away:

    I turn up the TV (I'm slightly hard of hearing, so it's great to watch it at MY level without annoying her)

    I do all the messy/inconvenient projects around the house, things that require demolition or turning off the water

    I always get a LOT of cleaning/DIY stuff done

    I cook less (not that much fun cooking for one) and eat cheaply.

    I try to take the time to do all the stuff that I'm too busy/distracted to get done when she's here, partly so that I get a head start, but also so that she comes home to a neater house, remodeled bedroom, or organized finances.

    Mostly I do whatever I can to take my mind off missing her, though.
