@Retrowire I understand. I also hope he gets what he deserves. I hate it when people do something like this and I can never understand why. u_u I wouldn't dare toy with a girl's feelings like that. If there's another you just have to break it to her, be a man. My current girlfriend was cheated on by her ex before me. She's different ever since that jerk did what he did and I won't stand for anyone hurting someone like that. Man or woman.

You know, my wife and I were talking about that. Why do people do this? And the conclusion we reached was, Greed.

To have enough and only want more, it's just greed. When people apply that greed to relationships, they are essentially treating people like objects. Well, people are more than objects and when there's someone that lives their life this way, it can only be certain that they are a very self centered person.

And my condolences for the jackhole that scarred the one that you love. It is a scar, but the best you can do is protect the one you're with from more harm. Healing that scar, is up to her.

Greed sounds about right. Or they're just perverts that never learned how to be loyal lol.
And thanks on that last part man. I have no idea when she'll heal from it, if she ever does. Its made things pretty tough and honestly, I'm starting to think I'm waiting my time. I don't want to give up on her though so I'm just seeing where this will all end up.

Sorry @Mickey, I don't want to go off topic but I feel wrong not responding to this. I wish there were a Private Messaging system in place here at Nintendo Life.

@Retro_on_Thego I know it seems trying, but do not give up. Never give up. If the relationship gets to a point where it can no longer hold up on it's own, then nothing can be done, but NEVER let it end because of your patience wearing thin. It could be one of the worst things for you, and it would only damage the girl more. She would feel as if it was all her fault, that her emotional baggage was the undoing of something that could have been great for her.

Personally, my wife has a lot of huge trust issues and insecurities with men in general because of previous boyfriends and men in her life. We have worked through many of these issues, but I still love her and will continue to be here for her, even if some of those issues never die.

Again, big apologies @Mickey. I just really wanted to help someone out.

@Retrowire Don't worry about @Mickey: I got this.

@Retrowire: Wow I hope that your niece does something before the wedding. Trust me on this one don't get married thinking that the cheating will stop cause it wont. As someone said once a cheater always a cheater. I made the mistake of marring a girl who cheated on every boyfriend she ever had thinking that oh it wont happen to me. Well that was a big mistake I caught her cheating and that was that. Now I am divorced but I still have a hard time now even talking to woman cause what my ex did to me is in the back of my mind. Hopefully one day I will get over it which I believe I will especially since lately I have been thinking of looking again for a girl. Now really the only thing holding me back is how to go about that. But thats a different story.

@Retrowire Wow, that's awful. I certainly hope she recovers from it.
Same goes for you @Retro_on_theGo. There are a lot of jerks in this world, sadly.

Here's the follow up to my disappointment of the day guys,

She had a long night discussing it all with him and in the end she told him that she had lost all trust in him and he'll have to earn it back. That's right, she's giving him another chance.

She told him, the engagement is off. It's not like that makes a difference though seeing as how he never cared about the engagement to begin with, that's not really a loss for him. He cried in front of her, so she believes he's been punished enough.

Needless to say, I'm a tad disappointed. This is another POS guy, that gets away with treating women like that. I've had additional words with my niece and she's admitted that her mind is telling her to leave him, but it's just so hard to betray her heart about it. She knows what she needs to do, it's just really hard for her. The best I can do now, is pray. :/

@Tasuki in reading your first hand account... if there's a bright spot your story definitely reinforces your message.

My gut tells me that someone who doesn't respect boundaries in a relationship, also won't be swayed by "marital status".
Not to belabor the point, but yea we're dealing with a creep. The fellowship of nerds as we might consider ourselves, tend to hold the few human relationships we maintain (haha) with a high level of respect. So this is the right crowd to vent to, basically; myself included of course.

EDIT
Just read the comment above me... argh. Prayer sounds like the right answer, maybe some wagging of the fists.

My wife was saying this earlier, in regards to nerds typically being better men than most. Popular people have friendships and relationships easily and therefore, their relationships aren't as valuable, and easily replaceable. We nerds (haha) do have fewer relationships but they are much more valuable and contain much more substance than most.

My wife had many problems regarding men, mainly because they always viewed her as an object and only wanted her for her looks. My wife found me more appealing than any other simply because I maintained a conversation with her that treated her like an equal. I love her because of everything that she is, she loves me only because of my devilishly good looks. JK LOL

Anyways, to all you nerds/geeks/gamers out there, be a gentleman, continue being a romantic, keep your respect for women and it will pay off. You are more rare than you think.

My cousin just died. Finally she's at peace in heaven, unlike the suffering she has gone through for the past few years!

@OptometristLime: Not sure what you mean by that by uh thanks.

@Retrowire: Well all I can say is pray for her and be there for her thats all you can do for her. Unfortunately she made the decision that she thinks is good for her and if it turns out to be the wrong one well, you are just going to have to let her figure that one out on her own. Its sucks being in love with a cheater trust me on that. All my friends tried to warn me about my ex but I just thought they were jealous or wrong. Lost a few good friends that way.

@WildTwinVikings: I am sorry for your lost man. My thoughts and prays go out to you and your family during this difficult time.

@WildTwinVikings Aw geez, that's horrible! I remember when a beloved cousin of mine died in a car crash several years ago, so trust me when I say I share your pain.

My prayers go out to you and your family, if only I could offer more...

Here's my disappointment today, I found out my thread got locked because another similar thread existed. I didn't think that was very fair, so I messaged NintendoLife about it. Here's the message.

"Hello, I just wanted to give a little feedback regarding this website.

First off, I LOVE the community here, everyone is so much nicer on average than in other forums on the web.

That said, I have to complain a little about the treatment of a thread that I made in the General Discussions section of the site. I made a thread called The Foodie Thread because I saw that people would make general threads that regarded a specific interest. http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/general_discussion/the_foo...

Anyways, I started the thread with an encouraging message for everyone to share recipes, favorite flavors and even bad food experiences. I wanted to create a thread that was a centralized area for culinary collaboration amongst gamers. During the thread, I was recommended several times to instead go post my culinary talk in another thread named "The all-encompassing food topic" http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/general_discussion/the_all...

I visited it, and the thread seems to only exist for people to say what they ate. The introduction to the thread is merely, "So now there's no need to make any more threads about particular subsets of food. If you eat it, it belongs in here." What a nice way to intro me into a generic thread where it doesn't even evoke the same message of collaboration as my own thread.

At first I thought, "Oh, well I don't really like that thread as much, it won't be a problem if I continue my own thread, and maybe I can really get people talking about cooking in general! Not just eating!"

Today I go to my thread and find that it's been locked. Nice. NintendoLife basically forced me to stop my mission to share a passion of cooking and eating with others simply because there was another thread called "The all-encompassing food topic" Keep in mind, that topic is about food you eat, or food in general. My topic was reaching to speak about the culinary arts themselves, restaurants, recipes, those who are seriously interested in being a Foodie could post their ideas, their techniques. "The all-encompassing food topic", does not deliver the same environment. It's just upsetting that I made a positive thread to get people talking and I just get forced into a room (thread) where people just talk about food in general.

On these rules, I should be able to make a thread called "The all-encompassing Anime & Manga topic" and this thread: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/general_discussion/anime_n... should be locked. Because that's essentially what happened to me and that's not fair.

I would be happy if NintendoLife replied to this message and gave me permission to open my Foodie Thread again, start a new one or at least explain why the decision to lock my thread made any sense.

On a side note, does NintendoLife plan to ever have a private messaging system available on the site? Just wondering. I think that'd be nice. Thanks for reading."

I just hope this works out.

@Retrowire Allow me to explain why your thread was locked:

Your thread was locked because there was already a food topic. Whether they had the same intentions as you doesn't matter. It's all-encompassing so naturally it extends to sharing recipes, favorite flavors and "even bad food experiences." Just because some people don't use it for that, doesn't mean it can't be used for it. If you made "The all-encompassing Anime & Manga topic", it would be locked because we already have an Anime & Manga topic. Simple as that.

I hope I helped.

First day of University today, had to run literally across the entire campus to get to Russian History, was fifteen minutes late even though I left Literary Tradition early, everyone looked at me when I came in and I felt like such an idiot.
