    Cinema is an awful first date idea IMO. Sitting in silence for 90 minutes+ is not a good way to get to know someone, talking over a coffee/drink is and is easy to leave if you don't get on.

    The cinema is fine for a third (second at a push) date though.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    My current strategy is having no strategy, trying not to think about things too much, and the occasional crywank.

    Agreed. Get to know each other enough that you can then sit together without any first date awkwardness

    I think I need to expand my profile beyond, "I am Metal".

    Would an extra n at the end of the sentence be in order?

    Sadly my cockiness is over and I'm looking again. Trying a repeat of the befriend as many interesting girls as possible and see if any of them end up wanting a date.

    Condolences DP :(

    I seem to be finally just about regaining the ability to function. We only went out 10 weeks, so the 5 weeks it's taken me to not hide in a corner in a mess seems somewhat disproportionate, but I'm feeling a lot more positive today. Still not feeling like I can involve myself with anyone else yet, think that's still some way off, but am much chirpier. Huzzah \o/

    Yes. Seen her for a total of 5 minutes since to exchange things we'd left at each other's houses. We'll be good friends in time I'm sure.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Good friends? Bollocks. Nobody is good friends with their ex. They say they want to be and perhaps even mean it, but you won't be, simply because when you find someone else you will be too busy to see them. I get on fine with a few of mine and remain in contact (if you can all FB and the odd message contact), but I don't really speak to them anymore. Separate lives.

    I'm still very good friends with most of my exes. I went to a gig at the weekend with one, I'm going to another's engagement party next weekend. If you were close and the breakup came about on reasonable terms and not in a big rage fit because someone cheated or something then I see no good reason why it's not perfectly easy to do.

    You're single, right?

    It's got nothing to do with being close, it is down to time.

    Yes I'm single.

    For me I just need time to not be hung up on someone. When I broke up with the girl I went out with for seven years, about 2.5 years ago, we agreed that for a few months we'd pretend the other didn't exist, block each other from all forms of contact, just to get ourselves sorted. Now we speak on the phone at some point every week and see each other at least every couple of months (we live a few hours apart now so not practical to do much more). She's getting married next year, I get on very well with her fiancé and all is fine. I don't see her as much as an ex now so much as a good friend, I make time for her just as I would any other friend.

    Seven years.... fair enough. Not even come close to lasting that long so who am I to judge. :)

    He says went out with, he means he watched her through his telescope and occasionally went through her bins for seven years. The weekly phone calls consist of him heavy breathing for half an hour at her while she rocks gently in the corner of the room, wishing he would leave her alone.

    If you need me to join the dots a bit more, just holla.

    Yes, I really thought she could be the one.

    But I didn't know about some problems due to cultural differences I was unaware of. Learnt a few unpleasant truths about myself in the process.

    Not rushing anything because I'd still like to fix it... but not looking good.

    Oddly enough it was an ex from years ago who helped me get over the initial horror by inviting me down to spend a few days getting trashed with her and her boyfriend.

    I think you can be good friends afterwards, especially if you knew each other very well... her current bf doesn't know half her history including the fact that I'm an ex but didn't warn me. Fortunately I knew her well enough to never put my foot in my mouth :D

    DodgyPast came to the realisation that he's a massive, massive racist.

    The promise of special K in the subject line always ends up turning nasty.

    It's starting to get a bit old for me at the least.
