The first one sounds dumb.

The second one is of interest to me as regfootball said it was good.

The third one: never heard of it. What's it about? Report back.

I thought the Wedding Crashers and The 40 Year Old Virgin were pretty good. Wedding crashers I put in the same category as Old School. Of the two I liked 40 year old virgin the best.

Slutty Summer.. not particularry my type of movie

I must be a dummy. I can't get "Wedding Crashers" to play on my existing video players here on the pc. It keeps asking me to download some new player... BAH.

"40-Year-Old Virgin" is really good. I thought it was heartwarming, innocent and cool.

"Slutty Summer" is just a piece of fluff (not porn, CD/BP). Not really my kind of movie either.

Well... The 40 Y/O Virgin was hilarious. I laughed... and laughed hard. :P

Anyways, yeah, the rain really sucks but it didn't stop me from having a kinda-sorta-not-really good time! Oh no it didn't! I went dealer hopping again for no damn reason! I walked the streets of Brookville by my lonesome self again for no damn reason! Ah... I didn't let the rain stop me... Yes, I got soaked and froze my ass off, but you know what? It wasn't worth it. Meh...

Ah, Vipes. I hear ya. I'm doing my own wandering right now. A person I've cared about since the first day I saw him has really been on my mind lately. I've known him for 3 years. I work with him. All I want to do is tell him, because I've had a feeling for the longest time that he might feel the same. This gay thing is so much bull$h!. It's not f@#king fair.

Life isn't fair, straight or gay. Quit dwelling on the self-pity and you'll find it a lot easier. Carpe diem. Seriously, life sucks and then you die, unless you make something of it for yourself. Hope this helps.

*nods*

I'll agree with that, having been in that "down" area a bit too many times myself, only to be "lectured" by my best friend.

YET....those "lectures" were exactly what I needed, if that makes any sense.

*shrugs*

To those who are down currently (including myself), it WILL get better. I busied myself today by moving some things around in my room ... on a couple of desks ... just to give it a "new" look. Problem now is, I have a "bug" to move things in the entire room ... and I don't have the time for that :(. Irony rocks ;).

Oh yeah... I feel alot better, thanks for helping.

Well... in my situation, life is getting about as unfair as it possibly could be. Lately, I can't help but feel lonely and depressed. Being shy and gay in a town like Brookville... it really limits the possibilities of being with someone, which I want so badly. To make it worse, I don't really have a long list of friends to talk to, let alone ones that are aware of my sexuality and would approve of it. Currently, all this is really making life a living hell. For some things, coming out seems to be the only way to make some things easier... and well, that isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world. I tried with one of my closest friends, and I couldn't get it out. That and you have to consider that atleast half of Brookville is made up homophobic rednecks...

Hope this helps you understand, Croc.

Of course it makes sense; it's true.

Seriously, Doane, I am speaking from personal experience, so why don't you save the sarcasm and eyerolling, mkay? Whether ocn follows my advice or continues the same self-pity road he's been on for months now is his prerogative, but happy ocn is much more fun than sad ocn, and as someone who genuinely cares, I think it's time he tries to snap out of it. Seriously, if he samples my advice and finds it sucks and didn't work for him, he has every right to come on here and post about how $h!ty my advice was in regards to his situation, but I think that that is ocn's business and not yours. Instead of criticizing my advice to him, why don't you offer something constructive yourself? Oh, wait, that's so much harder than mocking someone you've never met and is really just text on a screen to you, isn't it? :rolleyes:

BV: my post was more directed at ocn and his "life isn't fair" comment. That said, I think it could still be valid advice for you too in some regards. Look, teenage highschool bull$h! is just that--bull$h! stemming from being a teen in HS. It will pass. Just trust me on this. You need to go to college, and find your niche. Go to a big school. They tend to be more liberal, they have a lot of people, and it is easier to find a niche than a small one where everyone knows everyone else's business. You might even want to go Greek if you can. Waitaminute! Ludicrous? No. One of my new bros is openly gay, and it's awesome. Now, granted, not all houses are as cool as mine, but his sexuality wasn't even an issue for anyone.

Sucks you don't have too many friends now, but I don't know you in person to prescribe anything. That said, having few friends in HS is not foreign to me. Sucks to hear it, but it will pass, college will be MUCH better. You just have to put yourself out there. Worrying what people will think will only lead to more isolation because not only are you suppressing part of yourself to the world, but the world has no way of getting to know you, even if some people really try to. It's not worth it. I do not recommend that route.

Oh, and that dwelling thing...stop it. It just perpetuates the cycle. Seriously, if you catch yourself doing it, think of something else and more pleasant. When you dwell to negatively, you amplify your shortcomings and ignore your strengths. No psychologist will tell you such a course of action is healthy. You seem to have a lot going for you, and you need to realize that. Just keep your head up, and make sure that whenever you do things, you're doing them for the right reason and not because you somehow equate it with some kind of validation. Just keep a level head. I think you'll do fine. Good luck.

Oh Croc. :rolleyes: I wasn't being sarcastic? I thought your post wasn't helpful. Just like post Im quoting. Your delivery skills are poor. That's all. Id be happy to tell you your post is useless in person. :)

As for advice to 'Blu, I would say this. I had the *exact* same situation in college. Spent my whole freshman year going crazy. Finally told the guy how I felt over summer break. He turned out not to be gay and it was a little weird for a while. However a few months into my sophomore year everything was back to normal and we were close friends through out college.

So, summon all your courage and tell him. It might not turn out how you want, but at least it's off your chest.

As for BV, we've already talked about it in PMs.

And your advice is different than mine...how, exactly? Or are you not up on the whole "carpe diem"? Don't be a douche, Chris; it ill becomes you.

Look, your advice just isn't helping. That sort of advice never does with me. It just doesn't make me feel better, which is really what I need more than anything, including your advice. Alot of what you say, just will not work for me or isn't for me. I can't wait until college. I usually don't care what people think. I realize that I have going for me. I can't help certain feelings. I don't have a clear head to do some things. I still don't think you understand. None of that changes how I feel and what I can do. It's not like I can choose whether I want to feel lonely, depressed, etc... Still, I am trying to change some things by coming out. But I don't think you realize how hard that is. I tried with the person I currently care the most about... I couldn't get myself to do it. I became speechless. That and the thought of risking relationships I have with certain people by doing this makes it that much harder. Not to mention how shy I am. This is all right now and waiting any longer would kill me, basically.

BTW, as of yet, Chris has been of the most help to me. Maybe he has a point...

We differ in delivery.

Heh, yes, Im sure most here would agree that Im the douche.

As I said, you just have to put yourself out there, shyness or not. The people who like you for you will still be there for you in the end. Of course it's gonna be rough. No one said it's easy. Several of my HS friends ended up being gay, and when I asked them about it they said that what drove them to come out and get over their hangups on doing so was that they felt they had an obligation to their friends to be honest with them about it. If these people are truly your friends, they will still be there for you. That's a fact. One of my sister's very best friends (junior in HS) just came out, and he's a really shy guy too. Everyone has been very embracing of it. One of the former moderators here, Scott, came out to one of his best friends, and while on a vacation he got a call that the friend accidentally slipped it and everyone knew. He feared the worst until he got home and found out everyone who was his friend still was, they just needed a week or so to have it all set in. From what I've heard, mothers tend to be more accepting initially than fathers, and since you say your family isn't religious at all, you might want to consider that.

The thing you have to remember is that with these relationships you feel will be at risk...well they are bound to find out one day...so you might as well save yourself some internal angst and do it sooner rather than later.

When life hands you lemons, you gotta make some lemonade out of it.

I'm sure if you google "I'm gay" and "coming out" you will find lots of tips on doing so, and I think there's an organization PFLAG or PFLAAG or something for "parents and friends of lesbians and gays" so you might want to direct your parents and/or friends to that.

Just because the medicine tastes bad doesn't make it any less good for you.

Also, I didn't say you were a douche, but that in that instant you were being one. I also don't give a $h! of the outcome if you set up a poll and had the entire site vote on it. I'm on this site to talk cars, not win any popularity contests. That said, I do care about the well-being of a few longtime members on here, and if I think they should hear something I'm gonna tell them.

I have no idea if you've ever been clinically depressed, and frankly I don't care. I have been at times, as have a lot of people I know, and sometimes what you really need is a wakeup call. In the end, all that cures depression is an internal motivation or wake up call for change. Depression doesn't just "go away;" it must be dealt with head-on.
