Someone slap me

What the hell was I thinking. I'm now leaving for a bike ride with my mom (who hasn't ridden in years) and I'm so depressed.

I told her to leave me alone, though. So maybe that'll help.

Maybe the ride will make you feel better? Quality mother and son time? If there is anyone who can sympathize with a broken hearted young man, its would be his mother.

Oh, well, I thought I'd be the one to say something mean first.

The Official UnsafeAlpine Strategy: We're reserving the mean things for when he relapses and calls that Ex. As long as he ceases contact, we're being nice and supportive.

I'm in a similar position as UnsafeAlpine. I've been dragged through the mud. She broke up with me and all too. Lots of mixed signals, so i confronted her last night. Despite breaking up with me, she has made no attempt to move on but doesn't want to date me. So I said f-her, no way I can be friends with her if i supposed to be moving on. I laid the law down and blocked her online and wont answer when/if she calls. We dated for the last 3 years and were talking about marriage too. Love of my life, no doubt, but she don't care about me anymore. It hurts, but its the only to move on. I getting into hunting now with a coworker, so once i get good enough and know how to dress a dead dear (and no, not put clothes on it) me thinking i'll move out into the Wilds of Alaska, Survivor-Man style (but w/o the TV crew).

And I shared my experience of provoking a beating - and then dialing the police on her.

(Fuzzy hasn't been around for a couple of weeks)

His ex is stringing him along and we are trying to help him get through this. Even though he tries to go out and do other things (like riding with mom) he's gonna be bummed for a while. That's just part of the process.

I flicked him in the forehead earlier, does that count?

his ex is obviously running his show

he will either learn to walk away from this repetitious misery or he will simply be a broken man at her mercy for the rest of his life

let him take his lesson in peace!

It isn't nice to be mean to your mom though.

Damn, first the ex, then the mom. Buy your mom a Ti Road Bike as penance.

A tip to all Moms out there...

When your son has a broken heart, your prescence can't help. It works better if you call your fellow succer-mom-friends, find who has an available/willing/legally-aged daugther and hook her up with your son.

PS: You might skip the legaly aged part in certain hillbillish parts of the central states.
