Well I'll start with this.


Well, the mentality in the

Actually I was curious as hell to see what type of mentality you'd assign me. It would have been interesting considering I'm a mental defective.


well, people(especially in Canada) like to walk around, blind to the reality of the government greed.

You're talking about sheep. It's the way we're trained. If your aunt is about my age, there was barely anyone bitching about the government doing anything that wasn't beneficial for the people.


So many people will fight tooth and nail for things that are never that black and white, like religion or politics.

that is why I asked if you were autistic. To me it appears that you see everything black or white with no grey areas.Damn you appear angry when discussing things that bother you like government or people with differing opinions.


I get that people need something to believe in, but why not something that promises them more than just death and taxes out of life..

And they get to choose whatever they want to believe in and it doesn't matter what anyone thinks because their opinion to them is right.

Damn you right well but it's too much information for me to process right now so I'll close with this.


Depression was never in question,

You'd be surprised howm many people suffer from depression but don't recognise it because society never taught us how. What do you do for work and are you happy doing it?


Where's the interesting girls at..? The rebels, the punks, the anti-government types..

To me this is a powerful song thugh interpretation is left wide open

Live - Run to the Water

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB1zPYKQCCY

oh desert speak to my heart
oh woman of the earth
maker of children who weep for love
maker of this birth
'til your deepest secrets are known to me
I will not be moved
I will not be moved

"don't try to find the answer
when there ain't no question here
brother let your heart be wounded
and give no mercy to your fear"

adam and eve live down the street from
me
babylon is every town
it's as crazy as it's ever been
love's a stranger all around
in a moment we lost our minds here
and lay our spirit down
today we lived a thousand years
all we have is now

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon
these streets below the moon


and I will never leave you
'til we can say, "this world was just a
dream
we were sleepin' now we are awake"

'til we can say
in a moment we lost our minds here
and dreamt the world was round
a million mile fall from grace
thank god we missed the ground

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon

with a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
yeah, I can see it now lord
out beyond all the breakin' of waves
and the tribulation
it's a place and the home of ascended
souls
who swam out there in love!

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon

with a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
rest easy baby, rest easy
and recognize it all as light and rainbows
smashed to smithereens and be happy
run to the water (and find me there)
run to the water

Put the album this song comes from on when you have a female guest over. She will be compelled to remove her clothes shortly after.
Damn, soon as the singing started I began to undress. Unfortunately I'm a man and alone at home? I'll need a couple minutes before i find a song.

Found one.

Golden Earring - Twilight Zone

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1sf2CzEq0w

Somewhere in a lonely hotel room there's a guy
Starting to realize that eternal fate has turned its back on him
It's two A.M.

It's two A.M. (It's two A.M.)
Fear is gone (fear is gone)
I'm sitting here waiting
The Gun is still warm (the gun is still warm)
Maybe my connection is tired of taking chances

Yeah, there's a storm on the loose
Sirens in my head
Wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
Cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help, I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
Place is a madhouse, feels like being cold
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I o go now that I've gone too far?
So you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
So you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

I'm fallin' down a spiral, destination unknown
Double crossed messenger, all alone
Can't get no connection, can't get through
Where are you?

Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
When the hitman comes
He knows damn well he has been cheated
And he says

Help, I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
Place is a madhouse, feels like being cold
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go now that I've gone too far?
So you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
So you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

Well, assuming that was a real question and not an insult;

I didn't come here for that. I came here to talk with you. I'm going to quote mainly single sentences since explaining myself hasn't worked so far.


Why does saying what I want in a life partner, come off as demanding?

Ok it's obvious i still suck at explaining myself.


Now I have to ask, seriously, because I've run into this mentality far too often lately.

What kind of mentality are you assigning to me because i'm curious as hell?


Do people not have the patience to read the entire message, think about it's contents objectively and draw logical conclusions?
No. It's a disposable society and on the internet people are easier to dispose of. I can't imagine many people anylyse a profile the way you describe. More of a passing look.


I just had a falling out with my favorite aunt because of a political clash on Facebook.

Was the clash one sided? You're Canadian, what about our politics would cause this?


That whole "opposites attract" thing is a myth imho.

No it isn't. The percentage of people like that would barely be measurable. Any type of relationship is possible.


Sure two people that have opposing beliefs, likes, dislikes .etc, can get together, even live together, but they will never have a true, non-sex based relationship in the way that two people with beliefs that coincide would have.

Ok I'm confused, why are you talking non=sex based relationships?


As controlling as I may seem

A misunderstanding due to my righting. I don't think you're controlling.


After he set free a national terrorist and handed him 10.5mil of taxpayer money,

So your like me then. When someone mentions his name the first word I think of is asshole lol


It doesn't help that I've had very few friends in my life and spend much more time alone than not.

I don't think your retarded lol I found a video of a young girl who has an extreme case of your nasal condition. I needed to know what you meant. Are you running out of things to do with your time when alone? Do you consider yourself lonely? Do you think you have diagnose-able depression? Sorry I have to stop for now. I'll try to write more expansively next time.

Since it is Sunday morning

Johnny Cash - Sunday Morning Coming Down

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED5s1-Fe9FA

Well I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head, that didn't hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
So I had one more for dessert

Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

I'd smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and the songs I'd been pickin'
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
Playin' with a can that he was kicking

Then I walked across the street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone's fryin' chicken
And Lord, it took me back to somethin'
That I'd lost somewhere, somehow along the way

On a Sunday morning sidewalk
I'm wishing Lord that I was stoned
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone

And there's nothin' short of dyin'
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleepin' city sidewalk
And Sunday mornin' comin' down

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughin' little girl that he was swingin'
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singin'

Then I headed down the street
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearin' dreams of yesterday

On a Sunday morning sidewalk
I'm wishing Lord that I was stoned
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone

And there's nothin' short of dyin'
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of a sleepin' city sidewalk
And Sunday mornin' comin' down

Get off the pity pot. Stop looking for sympathy.

And you base this on what? He's sharing his story it isn't pretty and looking for advice. Damn you have all the compassion of that bitch motowncowgirl.

With that said, how is it putting down women?

I didn't say that. Well I did and I didn't. I have a problem getting things from my brain to a post. I said it but it wasn't what I meant. I meant to say in those three sentences is you're demanding that a woman be a certain way then in the third sentence state "I'm not controlling. Sounds like it to me.


I also want to put in what I am looking for, but without coming off judgmental.

Well this pretty much judgmental, "Our government, our economy and our society are imperfect and could use change in a big way. If you do not know or accept that then there is a lesser chance that we will get along." Sounds to me like you hate a lot of things and well plain negative. How would a woman see it?


I just like to be upfront about it so we're not both wasting time on fruitless endeavors.

You don't have a hope in hell of meeting someone who is your twin. Fruitless endeavors? Do you mean you'd rather stay home alone rather than spend time with a woman because you deem her incompatible? Unless you get to really know someone you'll never discover if your criteria are to strict in some areas. As for upfront, it means honesty and honestly your profile is negative. All this just to say that. I wonder if you see trudeau the same way i do.


I know you say that I should fix myself before trying to be with anyone else, and you're not wrong in that, but in my particular case, it isn't going to be that easy.

Are you autistic? What if you can't fix yourself with or without help? That nasal condition would be a problem.

No car pretty much cuts down your prospects to damn near nothing but envirofreaks who ride bicycles. Let me guess, you're an envirofreak. Have you never had a license?

Well i babbled long enough and hopefully it's??? Sensible

Well since no one said the bible is necessary to have morals I imagine you brought it up because you were desperate for a reply.


Fairytales are not history

Actually what I wrote was history in the form of a fairytale . I have to say it's pathetic how you couldn't address that because it was so much easier to dismiss it as you usually do.

How did you become so intolerant of others?

Since you're talking about turtles, why not!

The Turtles- Happy Together

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvu3xiFmfDU

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together



Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


you seem to think morality comes out of the bible. Nonsense

You really don't have a clue about history and how society developed. Well once upon a time in a land far, far away Jesus was born and he eventually morphed into the Catholic church which controlled all of society for hundreds of year's. Now the funny thing about the Catholic church all their teachings are based on the bible which resulted in

Morals of the time being determined by the church based on the Bible. Of course many morals had been established before this all happened. The Koran also came into being and look at the type of morals it teaches to some people now.

Damn I wish you people would put the number of the post you're quoting up. It would make it a hell of a lot easier to follow the conversations. It also might attract new posters. There are a lot of people who look at the threads and don't post. One thread has only 460 posts yet almost 20,000 views.

Well I wouldn't date you which is easy to say since neither of us is gay. I don't do profile reviews but what the hell. Your first three sentences need to be changed. To me it appears you're putting down women. As for the rest, rewrite the whole thing because it's all negative.


I mostly want to know if I should really be bothering at all or if I'm just setting myself up for more emotional pain by doing so.

Well I'm going to guess you haven't dated many women. Yes you can give up because you live in Buttfuck, B.C. There's maybe 30,000 people living within 30 minutes of you and most of them you'd never meet because you don't have a car. Your dating pool is wickedly small, Get over this emotional pain thing. It's not going to kill you if a relationship doesn't work out

I'm curious, why don't you have a car?

Heartbroken(and it's not what you think)
Posted: 5/11/2019 4:44:40 AM
No those thoughts vanished in an instant when I found out about a new grandchild. Still haven't figured why they came along in the first place. What's new you ask or didn't ask. lol I have a new psychiatrist which I'll be seeing Monday for the last time. My bipolar hasn't kicked into force in 13 years yet after 30 minutes of questions this dumb ass decides I need to change one of my meds. I'll see what he has to say but chances are I'm going to say goodbye.

Now something I never mentioned is I have a human rights complaint pending against my employer based around one of my fellow employees who is now my boss. As of this moment I'm deciding whether or not to hang this guy over other things and all it will take is one or two anonymous emails. Actually I have about 10 written. Some people are just to stupid for words. Other than that it's all the same, go to work, go visit my mom and stay home. Missed talking with you since most of my time is spent alone talking with no one. Not sure if I mentioned this but work is my social life.

Now you need to share some of the rest of your story. What happened with your dad?

I would have advised you not to try to date your therapist simply because she is your therapist. Wouldn't it run counter with her training not to get personal with a client? So you failed no big deal. According to life expectancy I will live another 17 years and know I will spend it alone. Honestly who's going to want to date a man who needs to take a pill just to go to a restaurant.

BBEisBack those lyrics are hilarious but truthful. As I was listening I couldn't help but think you could create a thread from it about a stereotypical guy. My next song would take a few listens to appreciate though you'll probably never understand the lyrics. It's in French and quite famous.

Edith Piaf - "Non, je ne regrette rien" ("No, I regret nothing")

What can I say, I was also raised on country.

Steve Earle - Telephone Road

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGnUsl1Azms

My brother Jimmy, my other brother Jack
Went off down to Houston and they never come back
Mama wasn't gonna let her baby go yet
But there ain't nobody hirin' back in Lafayette

I'm workin' all week for the Texaco check
Sun beatin' down on the back of my neck
Tried to save my money but Jimmy says no
Says he's got a little honey out on Telephone Road

Come on, come on, come on, let's go
This ain't Louisiana
And Mama won't know
Come on, come on, come on, let's go
Everybody's rockin' down Telephone Road

Telephone Road's ten miles long
Fifty car lots and a hundred honky-tonks
Jukebox blastin' and the beer bottles ring
Jimmy banging on a pinball machine

Come on, come on, come on, let's go
This ain't Louisiana
And Mama won't know
Come on, come on, come on, let's go
Everybody's rockin' out on Telephone Road

Mama never told me about nothin' like this
I guess Houston's 'bout as big as a city can get
Sometimes I get lonesome for Lafeyette
Someday I'm goin' home but I ain't ready yet

Come on, come on, come on, let's go
This ain't Louisiana
And Mama won't know
Come on come on come on let's go
Everybody's rockin' out on Telephone Road

Come on, come on, come on, let's go
This ain't Louisiana
AndMama won't know
Come on, come on, come on, let's go
Everybody's rockin' out on Telephone Road

Well I'll raise you with my favorite Springsteen.

Bruce Springsteen - The Rising

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i-fiRgbpr4

Can't see nothin' in front of me
Can't see nothin' coming up behind
Make my way through this darkness
I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Lost track of how far I've gone
How far I've gone, how high I've climbed
On my back's a sixty pound stone
On my shoulder a half mile of line

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Left the house this morning
Bells ringing filled the air
I was wearin' the cross of my calling
Hundreds of fireman rollin' down here

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

There's spirits above and behind me
Faces gone black, eyes burnin' bright
May their precious blood bind me
Lord, as I stand before your fiery light

I see you Mary in the garden
In the garden of a thousand sighs
There's holy pictures of our children
Dancin' in a sky filled with light
May I feel your arms around me
May I feel your blood mix with mine
A dream of life comes to me
Like a catfish dancin' on the end of my line

Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)
Sky of memory and shadow (a dream of life)
Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Hair of the Dog is not a song I care to listen to. It was overplayed up here when it came out. And now a little something by some American guy I heard about.

Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPhWR4d3FJQ

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man said "son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said "son, don't you understand"

I had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone daddy in the U.S.A.

Born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking daddy in the U.S.A.

Probably something no one will like.

OMD - Messages

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXvlzUCB74o

It worries me this kind of thing
How you hope to live alone
And occupy your waking hours

We're taking sides again
I just wept I couldn't understand
Why you started this again

And every day you send me more
It makes it worse is this a plan of yours
To ensure I don't forget

I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all
But you never send me your address
And I've, I've kept them anyway

So don't ask me if I think it's true
That communication can bring hope to those
Who have gone their separate ways

It hardly touched me when it should have then
But memories are uncertain friends
When recalled by messages

Nope, I'm not saying that at all, don't put words in my mouth

You wrote the words. Seems to me I interpreted them and that's what the forums are all about.


As for faith, you still miss the point. All religions are based on faith, not facts.

And not all faith requires religion. Stalin, Mao and others. Enough people had faith in them which allowed them to stay in power. Faith is not based on religion

Back to school
Ring the bell
Brand new shoes
Walking blues
Climb the fence
Books and pens
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
I can tell that we are gonna be friends

Walk with me
Suzy-lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
and look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound
Safely walk to school without a sound

Here we are
No one else
We walked to school all by ourselves
There's dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now its time to learn
We clean up and now its time to learn

Numbers, letters
Learn to spell
Rhymes and books and show and tell
Playtime we will throw the ball
Back to class
Through the hall
Teacher marks our height against the wall
Teacher marks our height against the wall

We don't notice any time passed
We don't notice anything
We sit side by side in every class
Teacher thinks that i sound funny
But she likes the way you sing

Tonight i'll dream
While i'm in bed
When silly thoughts go through my head
'Bout the bugs and alphabet
When i wake tomorrow i'll bet
That you and I will walk together again
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
Yes, I can tell that we are gonna be friends

A little something for SomewhereInTheStratosfere. Hopefully you can come back.

Oasis - Don't go Away

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU6yzzESX8Y

A cold and frosty morning there's not a lot to say
About the things caught in my mind
Another day was dawning my plane flew away
With all the things caught in my mind

And I want to be there when you're
Coming down
And I want to be there when you hit the ground
So don't go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay
Forever and a day in the time of my life
'Cause I need more time, yes, I need more time
Just to make things right

Damn my situation and the games I have to play
With all the things caught in my mind
Damn my education, I can't find the words to say
With all the things caught in my mind

And I want to be there when you're
Coming down
And I want to be there when you hit the ground
So don't go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay
Forever and a day in the time of my life
'Cause I need more time, yes, I need more time
Just to make things right

Me and you, what's going on?

All we seem to know is how to show
The feelings that are wrong

Don't go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay
Forever and a day in the time of my life
'Cause I need more time, yes, I need more time
Just to make things right

Don't go away, say what you say
But say that you'll stay
Forever and a day in the time of my life
'Cause I need more time, yes, I need more time
Just to make things right
Yes, I need more time
Just to make things right
Yes, I need more time
Just to make things right
So don't go away

The movie to see if you were a teenage girl in 1967

Lulu - To Sir, with Love

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sC71t6pBi-E

Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try

If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high 'To Sir, With Love'

The time has come for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn, but what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start
But I would rather you let me give my heart 'To Sir, With Love'

Yep... I am "guessing" making an "educated guess"

Now that is frickin' hilarious

So what you're saying is

You have faith in your "wild guess"despite the fact you have no proof

Isn't that sort of like

A Christian who has faith that God exists despite the fact there is no proof

In order to make an "educated guess" one has to have some education about the topic at hand. Admit it, you made a "wild guess based on your fantasies about psychology. What's next, making up statistics to prove your point.


I never got the mandate.

Let me explain the mandate to you. If you're going to bullshit your way through a post expect someone to call you on it.


it would be pretty pathetic if normal people sought "validation" for their beliefs,

Seeking validation happens to some one everyday. Basic psycholgy. Of course i might be just making one of your "wild guesses

That being said, some Christians seem to blindly follow what it taught or told to them without fully understanding what it means, these people don't do Christianity any favours, just like the weekend Christians

Actually nonreligious people blindly follow other things and are easily taught so as children. Examples being, the oppression of the blacks, oppression of unions way back when they were beginning, the Red Scare and so on. Look at many of the world leaders who had minimum support yet managed to ravish various populations, think Khmer Rouge. As for the UK, care to share some examples? Boer war comes to mind.


that's not a fault of God, man being man that will always happen, all the different groups still have to make their choices.

Somebody got it right.

And really, who is rude enough to preach to a stranger about not smoking?

Are you really that naive? It's happened to me. I reiterate 7 billion people in this world. Was it your psychic abilities that allowed you to preach it's never happened.

Truth is, this is nothing but psychobabble. I am guessing they teach this crap in psychology somewhere.

You're Guessing? You have the whole internet to find out if it is taught in psychology instead of spouting your meaningless psychobabble. The resources are there yet you didn't bother to find out because it doesn't fit into your thinking .


People may like to seek validation from others....but conversion? Yea...sure thing

An excellent example There 7 billion people in this world and because you're the expert none of them are seeking conversion. Laughable

I've worked with charities on committees and as a volunteer for at least 40 years and continue to do so. I also donate, not only my time but what monies I have to share. I did all this without god or feeling I had to do this because of a god.

Seems to me what you're saying is that your good deeds are better because a Christians good deeds are clouded by a belief in God. For shame!!!


As for the rest of the b.s. about "gave his only begotten son" - that works only if you believe the fairy tale book.

What an awe inspiring claim. Nothing like stating the obvious


Last I read, there were a couple thousand "gods", what makes you think your's is the best? Again, faith is just that - faith. It ain't fact.

True there are a lot of gods. People have faith in the Green Bay Packers and the New York Yankees. Have you never met a fanatical sports fan. How about White Supremacists? They have faith that so many peoples are inferior.What about PETA, they have a faith centered around animals and that they will change society's thinking. Faith is a fact yet you only belittle Christians.

Bill Withers - Lean on Me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5jlPL1tNDY

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me (call me)

If you need a friend (call me) call me uh huh(call me) if you need a friend (call me)
If you ever need a friend (call me)
Call me (call me) call me (call me) call me
(Call me) call me (call me) if you need a friend
(Call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me)

And again though this time "people"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDW_yAwaHnc

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
Alright, yeah

First with "blue"

Lou Gramm - "Midnight Blue"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cRdgIZgobs

Ain't got no regrets
I ain't losin' track
Of, which way I'm going
Ain't gonna double back, no

Don't want no misplay
Put on no display
An angel? no!
But I know my way

I used to follow
Yeah, that's true
But my following days are over
Now I just gotta follow through

I remember what my father said
He said "Son, life is simple"
It's either cherry red or
Midnight blue

Oh midnight blue, oh

You were the restless one
And you did not care
That, I was the trouble boy
Lookin' for a double dare

I won't apologize for
The things I've done and said
But when I win your heart,
I'm gonna paint it cherry red

I don't want to talk about it
What you do to me
I can't live without it

And you might think that
It's much too soon
For us to go this far into the
Midnight blue

Oh midnight blue, oh
Midnight blue oh

Things could be different
But that'd be a shame, 'cause
I'm the one who could feel the sun
Right in the pouring rain

I won't say where And I don't know when
But soon there's gonna come a day
I'll be back again

Yeah, I'll be back for you
You see, I'm saving up my love

Midnight blue
Into the midnight blue, oh

After Supertramp.

Roger Hodgson = Had a Dream

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ECkMzBcQPk

live version

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puAeFwRFh3Q

Had a dream I was born
To be naked in the eye of the storm
And now it's standing right in front of me
What's it going to do to me, who knows,

Had a dream it was time
To be taken to the front of the line
Well that is not a place you wanna be
Sleeping with the enemy, you know

I don't care what the future brings
Give a damn about anything
I'd be fine if they'd only leave me alone.

But it's time - gotta take a stance
'Cause I won't get a second chance
And I know now I have to make it alone

Had a dream it was war
And they couldn't tell me what it was for
But it was something they could lie about
Something we could die about, you know

Anytime, anyplace
When you look that man in the face
Well it is not a face you wanna see
Sleeping with the enemy, you know

Had a dream it was time
To be a witness at the scene of the crime
Well, That is something you can analyse
Something you can criticise, who knows

So we wait, hesitate
And we're making such a mistake
Oh whatever can the matter be
Sleeping with the enemy, you know

I don't care what the future brings
Give a damn about anything
I'd be fine if they'd only leave me alone

But it's time, gotta take a stance
'Cause I won't get a second chance
And I know now I have to make it alone

I think this is way off the mark

I agree with you completely but I wasn't talking about the average person in real life. I was talking about posters on here who preach about dating single mothers yet they never mention they've dated a single mother.

I blame myself though for not being strong enough to dump him from the get go. I knew he was an ***hole early on but I could never go through with breaking up with him.

At the time do you remember your thinking and do the reasons for doing nothing seem valid now? Would you have made the same decision to stay with him? Do you think being young and inexperienced with relationships was a major factor in your decision making then? Do you think you're stronger now? Things to think about.

thank you millions and backcreek. Sorry for the lateness of my reply but I just spent 3 days with a 3 year old grandson who definitely knows how to wear out this old man.

Armin van Buuren - This Is What It Feels Like (feat. Trevor Guthrie)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR_DFMUzX4E

Nobody here knocking at my door
The sound of silence I can’t take anymore
Nobody ringing my telephone now
Oh how I miss such a beautiful sound

And I don’t even know how I survive
I won’t make it to the show without your light
No I don’t even know if I’m alive
Oh, oh, oh without you now
This is what it feels like

Nothing to hold but the memories and frames
Oh they remind me of the battle I face
Without your love, without you I drown
Somebody save me I’m going down

And I don’t even know how I survive
I won’t make it to the show without your light
No I don’t even know if I’m alive
Oh, oh, oh without you now
This is what it feels like

And I don’t even know how I survive
I won’t make it down the road with one headlight
No I don’t even know if I’m alive
Oh, oh, oh without you now
This is what it feels like

LAZY EYE by the Silversun Pickups ...

While I was downloading this song I accidently Loaded another of their songs which I like just as well

Silversun Pickups - "Little Lover's So Polite"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziR2EaQOSjU

so much for the light show
pissing on while pissing off
sucking in a smokescreen
selling of a loose knit dream

folding up the skyline
agreeing on a steep decline
cant control this airplane
being caught is just the same

headed for a lowlife
little lover's so polite
waking up the core needs
with smelling salts and faulty means

did the bones collide
who let the bones collide
why did the bones collide

(nikki: it's always the same way for me
ending in the same way.)

so much for the showdown
keeping up while keeping off
choking on the cold feet
rolling up the plastic sleeves

can't control the slow ride
little lover's so polite
turning off the low light
tell me did the bones collide
the bones collide
the bones collide

little lover's so polite
so polite
so polite
turning off the low light

(nikki: it's always the same way for me
blue turns soft with time
broke remains, an everyday disguise
ending in the same way. . .the same way)

tell me did the bones collide
the bones collide
the bones collide

little lover's so polite
so polite
so polite

"Pachelbel's Cannon in D "

Backcreek you managed to pick a piece of music i was familiar with. I'm thinking from a movie. Like so many of my generation and maybe yours I learned to appreciate classical music and opera because of this man, Carl W. Stalling.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_W._Stalling

Bugs Bunny - "Rabbit of Seville"

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2o5y7d

How do!

Welcome to my shop
Let me cut your mop
Let me shave your crop!
Daintily! Daintily!

Hey you!

Don't look so perplexed
Why must you be next
Can't you see you're next?
Yes, you're next!
You're so next!

How about a nice close shave
Teach your whiskers to behave
Lots of lather lots of soap
Please hold still don't be a dope
Now we're ready for the scraping
There's no use to try escaping
Yell and scream and rant and rave
There's no use you need a shave!

Ooh ouch ouch ooh ouch ooh ooh ouch!

There, you're nice and clean!
Although your face looks like it might have gone through a ma-chine!

Oh, where do I get that wabbit?

What would you want with a wabbit?
Can't you see that I'm much sweeter?
I'm your little Senorita
You are my type of guy
Let me straighten your tie
And I shall dance for you!

Mine didn't usually
Yes, he did in front of his friends and family and tried to keep a lid on it around my family.

Wouldn't you think most abuse takes place behind closed doors? He did his best to keep it secret from your family July. Did you take any post-secondary psychology classes? Do you honestly think his personality changed because of his love for a woman? How long were you with him before you figured out he was an asshole? How long has he been with her now? Was he more abusive when it was just the two of you? What his sister and your children say is meaningless because most abuse occurs in private.

35
even if they still love him like only blood family members can

Um? From the way you describe their feelings towards him they tolerate him because they have no choice since he is permanent part of their family. Did you notice none them spoke this way about him when you were together and waited until they knew it was over. Wonder why that was?

29
In my case, there is a lot of self-loathing because I blame myself for how everything turned out and I start to think I deserve to be alone{/quote]
And back to this, why do you blame yourself?

Is there going to be a custody dispute? You may have spoken of this but I can't remember...
