Hi, i've never posted in here before, and the only reason i am is cos there some shit i wanna get off my chest and i know if i did it in the main forum i'd be told to come here. So i did.

Anyway, there's a chick at my work (I started working there in may) and I have been getting closer and closer to her over time. Trouble is, she has a BF :wtc: yeah i know i've been friendzoned hardcore. My logic says just get over it, it aint gonna happen :wtc: but my emotions are all like :x: if i just hold out etcetera etcetera yeah i know its shit. I'm trying to listen to my logic cos i know its right but my emotions are little spoiled children who just won't listen

anyway that's pretty much it, thanks to anyone who bothers reading this

So stick it out longer.

You'll eventually get so disgusted with the situation that the pain of walking away will be easier than the anguish of trying to stick it out.

btw, logic > emotions is the correct course of action 99.9% of the time.

I promise I won't tell Aussie crew.

I think most of us have been there before. Just walk away. It's not worth the heartbreak.

I know and agree

it's just shit, that's all. Maybe i will never find the awesome chick of my dreams, just end up with some average bitch
You've put her on a pedestal because you cannot have her. You could always tell her, and who knows what could happen. But, the best course of action: don't pine away like an emo bitch and explore the world.

she has a bf. dont waste your time

nothing wrong with staying friends with her. she may eventually break up with her bf and then maybe you would have a chance. but for now, dont waste your time or energy

logic wins

well i was friends with this girl for about a year. Helped her with her relationship problems and what not...basically just as a friend. She ended up breaking up with him and a few months later we got together. Later on I found out she was pretty psycho and I should have just left it as friends. We're broken up now.

Dunno if this helps or not

As trite as it sounds, there's a lot of fish in the sea. Don't be so quick to place her on the pedestal as the only worthy woman for you.

It should. Everyone looks fantastic when you aren't really with them and are pining for what you think they are.

Logic is always what you need to follow, even though you'll almost never want to.

If you let your emotions control your actions you'll prolly look back one day (soon) and think ":ugh::ugh: wtf was i thinking"
it's a bogus dichotomy. it's not emotions vs. logic. they're the same thing.

all that "logic" means is "emotions protected by foresight."

every example where someone says they used logic rather than emotions actually just means they used logic in order to better protect emotions.

e.g., "she was really hot but i didn't have a condom. i followed my logic instead of emotions and didn't fuck her."

but really, all that means is he followed his emotions........ with foresight.

he knew that, NET, in SUM, his emotions would be put at greater risk by fucking without a condom (because of the potential for babies/AIDS) than if he abstained from sex.

emotional impact of having a baby and/or getting an STD, long-term > emotional impact of an orgasm, short-term.

in contrast:

last night, i was lying in bed with my lover. emotionally, i wanted to go down on her. logically, i wanted to go down on here. i went down on her. did i do the logical thing or the emotional thing?????? omgz :noes:

kind of a dumb thread ya know? so vague. sometimes logic and impulse are the same, sometimes they're different, and ALL times it's about emotion (whether immediate or long-term).

after an ex cheated on me with 2 married guy, her ex and a new BF in the same week and told me that her reason for doing it was because, "she is a woman and are entitled to do what they feel" I started to have a very low tolerance for gals that let their emotions govern them instead of the other way around. Thanks to their hormones and how their brains are wired it's most women.

If God didn't curse my never ending thrist for vaginas, I would be chilling with the guys.........
