Apparently. That or it's her second year at college.

I've seen too much in my life to get bent out of shape about little things, like she does, i try to explain it to her...she doesn't get it.

TQ, sorry to hear it, man.

If you need to get away for a weekend to clear your head, come on back to the Land O' Lincoln the last weekend of the month and ride a century with a bunch of us. See my sig for details.

Mate, EVERY woman wants her guy to open up more. Just had this 'talk' again with my significant other.

Maybe when she's bit more mature she'll be a bit more realistic. A guy who likes her, wants her around, thinks she's amazing, provides, shows responsibility etc is pretty good in this f'ed up world.

Good luck with it dude. Hope it ends up well for you, whatever that my be.

Women nowadays don't want a man, they want another girlfriend. Men aren't emotional, and they don't cry to others. Hell, my dad didn't tell me he loved me until I was almost 30 years old!
Unless you're one of those clingy types that is scared to be alone then enjoy your freedom!!
Remember, you're not "single", you're "unmarried". Now go get a french lesson from a one eyed Belgum woman and enjoy your life.

I'm sorry, guys. Timmy and Mezza - you're both in your 20's, right? And I assume your women are around the same age? All I can say is that as women get older, most of them come to understand that they cannot have perfection in their partners. Meantime, it sucks.

A better plan would be to get within 50 yards of a marketable chick. She'll be back before you can blink. Look, we've all been there, even us older dudes. Play this to your advantage. Don't try and be tough, play the game, reel her back in, ...learn....benefit, and move on.

I've got this girls number, and when we lived in the same dorm 1 1/2 years ago she showed a pretty strong interest...recently single too...maybe i should give her a call

And this one told me last night that we needed to hang out more
http://campusgirlsusa.com/finalists....a&epid=2&gid=1



CyLowe97, i may do that...though i don't think i could finish a century right now. I've hardly ridden this past month. Maybe that's her problem, maybe she thinks i'm getting fat.

Hey, Timmyquest, I take the situation as she really did not want to be alone. But by sending you away was a reciprocation of you "sending" her away emotionally. As far as "finding something better" the only better to be found is becoming more aware of the needs of the "one you are with."

My old motto on women was:
No matter how good she looks;
No matter how well she treats you right now;
If she is single - somewhere out there, there is someone, who was sick and tired of taking her ****.

I think you're close, but wrong. This is only her second year at college, last year she didn't know too many people. I think she's just going through what i went through when i first went to college and what many high school relationships go through. The difference is that i'm graduating next year and would love to move to colorado.

A friend of mine always told me that if his girlfriend, who has been dating him for almost as long as i was mine, wanted to dump him...it's her loss.

I tend to feel the same way. The thing that bugs me is that she was trying to milk some sort of mutual agreement out of me.

We go to talking about temptation, she asked if i was ever tempted, i told her thats like asking a guy if he ever jerks off. They all have and they all will again. There is a difference though of being tempted and acting on temptation. She then said that maybe i should act on my temptation, i asked her waht she meant...

I eventually had to say "Listen, i'm not breaking up with you so if you have something to say then say it", so she did.

Dude. all joking aside here, but it sounds as though she had found someone else and possibly already done the tango. And was looking for a way out of it with you in order for her to feel like less of a ****. Seen it 1000 times before, and had it happen to be back when I was a "careing" individual.

You think i don't know this?

I told my best friend here at school that i thought she was cheating on me about two weeks ago. I don't know if she is, but i know she's got a few guys locked in...it's not too hard to see.
