(Or leaving forever in Vietnamese - apparently, though it translates back as Leave Aye. Oh well.)

Yep, that's it, I am off to Vietnam tomorrow for 2 weeks. \o/

So... er... love you long time. :bounce: :beer: :bounce: :beer: :bounce:

Ah. Not likely. Wouldn't want to put you too much to shame. :p

Will do on the "have fun" part though. :D

Well, I was having fun. Until Jen broke up with me this morning. :cry:

At least life's never dull with me around. And the worst thing is that I have had a bad virus for the last 3 days - fever, blocked sinuses - so I am feeling crap. And now I am stuck here for the next 5 days, cos booking an earlier trip back would cost me USD$200 to fly back 2 days earlier, or USD$500 to have flown back today.

Yay for girlfriends picking the worst possible time to break up with you. \o/

That's stunning timing.

You're going to have to go some to meet a girl and get married in the next three days! Good luck. :beer:

Oerdin

Why did she break up with you? I remember you saying you were thinking about marrying her if things went well, do you think she picked up on that attitude? That would be an excellent reason for her to freak out in the middle of a vacation.

Then again she might have just walked in on you with those five Vietnamese hookers. ;)

As to the rest, the funny thing was that three girls tried to pick me up the night before when I wandered out to get some food. Tried all sorts of lines like "I am studying medicine, I find some to make you well". :hmm:

That would be an excellent reason for her to freak out in the middle of a vacation.The stated reason was that she thinks that while on the surface we have a lot in common, deep down we're very different. Which sounded (and still does sound) like crap to me, especially when I qustioned her about just what made us so different, she refused to answer me.

Oh, and she kept reitterating that I was a really nice guy, and that it was not that I wasn't or anything. Dunno if that was supposed to make me feel better (it didn't work) or just to assuage her guilt.

Basically, I am pretty much in the dark, unless she's just fabricating these big differences in her head. Who knows? :confused:

Hmm. Swapped a few more emails, and I think the picture is becoming a little clearer. Basically, she has lost the plot. Accused me of stalking her, and threatened to call airport security if I so much as look sideways at her at the airport! Me, a stalker? :lol: :lol: :lol: :(

Weird, cos not a month ago she called me one of the sanest people she's ever met. And now suddenly, I am the Crazed Aussie Stalker. Hmm, sounds like a superhero name.

Oh, the reason for this? I changed my flights to tuesday after she told me that she was happy to have a talk at either airport on thursday (when we were supposed to fly out). So then she admits that she changed her flights so as to deliberately avoid me, cos she's worried I'll stalk her.

At least I am now getting home 2 days earlier! And after that email exchange, feeling much better about things too, I think I am much better off without her now.

MOBIUS
26-03-2007, 08:29:18
Women are... complicated...

And those are the sane ones.

Best bet is to walk away and never initiate any communication with her again - if she contacts you, you can say "go away and stop stalking me...";)

Sorry to hear about that Greg, maybe she's overreacting to getting in too deep too fast with you (this holiday is still really soon after you first met isn't it?) and putting the breaks on/reacting in this knee-jerk manner because she's scared. Best thing you can do is to let her work things out for herself, and if she contacts you after that you can figure out whether you still want anything to do with her then - most likely anything else you do will just reinforce her insecurities...

Looks like she feels bad about this (for whatever reason, not necessarily because she's found someone else) and tries to project that guilt onto you.

Either way, my sympathies, Greg.

To me it sounds like she has trust issues. Probably was in a bad relationship with some psycho. Maybe she's one of my ex's. :)

Greg W
27-03-2007, 02:51:37
Oh, I know for a fact that she has trust issues. She let slip on the holiday that she had been abused as a child. And from her past history of relationships, she kept on choosing the wrong type of guy to go out with (guys that would abuse her emotionally, dominate the relationship, etc).

Then she meets a nice guy (REALLY!) like me, and in hindsight I am not surprised that it all went pear shaped. And in a lot of ways, I am glad that it did, cos it was becoming too much work. She was/is a very nice girl, but seeing now just how she reacts under pressure, I am not sure I am cut out to put up with that in a relationship. Pity and a desire to help do not the basis of a relationship make.

Greg W
27-03-2007, 02:52:23

This just must't be my week or month or something.

Got back on the plan this morning, no worries. Except when I get to my car, some fucker has broken into it through the passenger window - from the looks of it by prying the door open with a screwdriver - judging by the marks above the door anyway. Presumably they then attempted to hotwire it, and when that failed, stripped most of the wiring out of the steering column and stole what the towie presumed must have been the main computer from in where the glovebox sits and the glovebox had been ripped out and was sitting in the back seat.

The odd thing? Mum's DVD recorder was sitting in the boot for me to put in for repairs, and was still there along with a few powertools.

F#$%ing c&*% thieves! :bash:

Greg W

I don't know, I'll have to ask them when I go buy back the stolen computer from them at my local.

mr_G
28-03-2007, 08:31:53
well look at the bright side: at least you still have your car.
