I know
I'm only 2 years deep, stop scaring me

It's not all that bad...

Oh who am I kidding.]

Something to add:

You wanna know the funniest part? One of the first things she ever said to me, was if I wanted to marry her when I became old enough (at the time I was 16, she 19). I mean it was just a weird joke of course, and initially I just laughed it off, but as time went along it really struck to me with the whole context tongue Lol I doubt she even remembers saying it. Also she has reminded me plenty of times, directly and indirectly, not live too deeply in the nostalgia world.

I mean, we don't even live in the same cities and meet rarely nowadays. Last time we met she revealed she was planning in having kids at some point, you know with the guy she's been involved for some time now. Not something I thought she would ever even dream of. Also not something I really wanted to hear, like at all... which may be pretty selfish of me, totally selfish in fact, but what's the point of lying to yourself. Things like that really break whatever imaginary false beliefs one might have of some day breaking the friendzone. It's all just a big fantasy I guess. But there it is still.

Going back to pop culture parallels. As well as Jorah from GoT, Dipper and Wendy in Gravity Falls are also living in friend zone and close to my situation which I can relate to. They even have similar ish age gap to my situation at the time, around 3 years. However, Dipper seemed to learn to let it go within the span of one summer... I'm still there 11 years later lolz

I work in retail as well and absolutely hate when customers come in on truck days and tell me how many of a certain product is in stock because the website tells them so. Like, the website is never accurate so stop believing those numbers.

Yes and no. No because the website isnt updated in real time but yes because everytime you tell them you dont physically have something, they stand there and either try to talk down to you and act like you dont know what you're talking about or they give you this sh*t eating grin like they dont believe you. Ive had that happen to me countless times. There are certain customers that actually come in and push product that is up on the pegs all the way to the back and then get pissed because we havent filled the free space yet.

Okay I understand.

I've had similar ish things happen in library, though usually the customers understand if book/thing X cannot be found even if the website/catalog said it's supposed there. There are million possible reasons why it's not despite what the system reports of course.

I work in retail too. But my biggest problem isn't the customers (except for last minute shoppers), it's corporate. Ever since 2011 when my store got remodeled, they have micromanaged the Meijer that I work at into ground. They can claim that things have been improving, but I can't help but wonder how much of that is in spite of them. Truth is, nobody wants to work at Meijer anymore. The fact that my union is corrupt and really doesn't care about anything else but my dues makes things worse.

I can relate. We get absolutely no help in our store because the management keep trying to keep costs down. I mean, on a good day we'll have 3 people in produce, but if it gets busy, they start call for help bagging and checking, and then we don't get our stuff done, and they go off on us for not getting stuff done when we aren't even able to keep our own help in our department. Our union as well does shady tactics to get what they want. A while back, they wanted to put in some clause in the contract, I forget what it even was now, but it screwed with the full time people really bad, and it got voted down. So, the Union put it up to vote again....but this time scheduled it in the middle of the work day when 90% of the ones who could vote it down were working, and then passed it through because no one was there to vote it down.

So today I spent my evening playing Garry's mod with my crush mentioned earlier on this thread. I'll just call her "J". Everything was pretty normal for the first hour, we poked a little fun at the whole friendzone thing with bulletholes on a wall.
Spoiler:
 
We then started watching Youtube videos via a media player in game, and she brought up a Steven universe song. She told me to listen to the lyrics, but I simply said "I will later." and wrote down the song name (She tried to get me to listen to the song many times in the past few weeks but I just ignored it). Then she started to fall quiet. I asked her what was wrong, and she simply replied "I want to cry but I just can't." I immediately started Private messaging her, asking what was wrong. She began to just pour all of her feelings out onto the keyboard, describing how confused she is; by entertaining (severely lovelorn) me, she started to gain feelings for me. "I just can't tell if I'm faking it anymore..." I explained and drew comparison to my feelings when I first started to fall in love with her, and giving advice about how I dealt with similar problems of uncertainty.
Finally, she summarized it with "I want to like you, really I do, but.... I can't, I don't know how"
we said goodnight and such, and then I went to watch the youtube video I mentioned earlier.
Wow. She had been trying to tell me the whole time.

Young love, am I right?

Troyal, I know I'm too young to understand, and I likely have no room to talk, but don't even think of ending it.
If the negative feelings grow, please consider calling 1-800-273-8255, suicide hotline.

Hey raptor lover. Being young doesn't mean you don't have value or input. I appreciate you reaching out man. But i have no idea if i'll get through this. My mental issues are making something that isn't even that big, REALLY BIG... i know that may not make sense....but that's my position. The only source of joy in my life(aside from here) got sh*t on. I feel helpless.

Family's can suck sometimes. Believe me, I know. I won't try to take any guesses as to what exactly happened. All I can tell you is that there is life outside of family, even if it doesn't seem like it now. I'm not trying to tell you to cut your family out of your life, merely reminding you that the option exists. It's not the be all end all to life. Your life is a precious commodity...You'll never get another one.

Anyways, you're my bro, and I'm just a PM away if you need someone to talk to/vent at.

Thanks everyone. Honestly made me tear up reading that. I'm not feeling like i'm gonna take my life as i was earlier.

My family is really great to me.... but i have a ton of mental problems, and i DON'T like change. I don't wanna say what happened exactly but my Dad just kinda changed some stuff and demanded i throw away some of my stuff without exception. I have some stuff in the house that is really just perfect for me and it fits my needs perfect. And he comes in with a new thing that is inferior and says "there's no room for both".  He didn't consult or ask me, he just thought these new thing would be better when they are far worse. Don't fit my needs at all. And he just expects me to throw away all the stuff i need to keep this new junk, and change my whole way of living. I guess he thought it would be therapy for me or some sh*t.

He seems like he might be willing to talk tomorrow, maybe.

But yeah, i have High functioning autism(that makes change hard for lots of people, even little stuff). Bi-polar disorder, anxiety disorder OCD and severe depression. All diagnosed.

So sometimes i can be quite the basket-case.

Thanks guys. Hugs. I'll tell you what happens 2morrow

Negging on this forum.

Some people do it just because they disagree with an opinion or because they get pissy about something. I know the function exists for a reason, but it really just doesn't seem to be in the spirit of this place (or JPLegacy).

I don't really know what that means, even after looking the (slang?) definition up, but it was probably directed at me.

Thanks again, but I already am aware of your deep hatred.

IF you guys feel like you are going to argue, take it to PMS or off forum. Everyone is going to have their own opinions and agree or disagree, you can't change what a person feels. As a small forum I realize you might be interacting with certain people more often, but try to move past things and keep things calm.

Well. I think there are exactly 3 guys on this forum with whom I have the same arguments over and over again. I AM sorry for being such a busy nose, obviously the 'blame' goes both sides, but you've got to learn with different people and different opinions nevertheless. I could've been a forum member of 15 posts after 5 months, but I've chosen to interact. I could go the other round if that's what you 3 collectively wanted. Or stop coming altogether. Because it is doubtful my posting style's gonna change.

He meant Private messages instead it was misconstrued as "PMS".

I think everyone is heated in the moment and we should all take a second to calm down a little. Everyone is letting opinions get the best of them and it's becoming too much for some to handle. For someone to say it doesn't fee like the spirit of the fandom here is a sign of that yes? We all need to calm a little and take a step back. People involved may need to take this to PM, if anyone has concerns you can also private message me. I don't want to break out the infraction system as it's never been used here. Which is a good thing I think personally.
