21 Men Who Tried Penis Enlargement Pills And Methods Reveal Whether They Worked Or Not

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 07:00 PM PST



I bought a dick pump from Amazon. That shit was uncomfortable. Did a drive-by dumpster toss a week later.



I tried stamina-rx. I bought it from the gas station and was super anxious so I thought I’d give it a test run before the big show. Well about 30 minutes later I started sweating my ass off, my face was flushed, my heart starting beating out of my chest, and I got the worst stomach ache ever. I was only 18 and couldn’t tell my mom I was dying because of dick pills, so I laid on the floor and accepted that this was how I was going to die.

Oh and I never got any benefit either. All the side effects, on the brink of death with a soft dick. I did jelq for 2-3 years and that did help a lot but I took it too far and injured myself. I cut that shit out and just chilled on jacking willy so much.

When I was younger around 18-19 I was really insecure about my penis size, mostly because I watched A LOT of porn and thought that every girl could only get off with a mandingo sized dick. This obviously led to a lot of insecurity about my penis size which was average at around 5.5″. So one day I remember seeing one of those porn site ads “grow your penis up to 8″ in a month!” and figured what the hell a month is no time at all and I’ll have a monster dong in 4 weeks! So I went to the site and bought one, $120 if I remember correctly which was a lot of money for me at the time. I remember ordering and then canceling the order about twice out of fear, then I guess I finally said screw it, ordered it and walked away.

The next day I got the shipping update and I nervously began pacing around my parents house plotting how to get the big brown box from the mail box to my room unnoticed so no one would ask “whats in the box” and leave me red faced and stammering while coming up with something to say. Few days go by and the mail comes, I bolt out the door to the mailbox, grabbed the box, dropped about 3 envelopes on the ground and bolt back inside. The mail on the ground was a casualty of war and I left it behind.

Anyways so I had it in my hands, it was a bathmate or something like that, a water penis pump. I went to the shower and began pumping the shit out of my dick. Hurt like a son of a bitch, felt like I put my dick in a shopvac and my insides were being pulled out through my urethra. But I could tell my dick was getting bigger already so I suffered through the pain. 15 minutes later I pop the thing off and my god was my dick engorged! It was the dick of my dreams, little did I know the results only lasted a couple hours but in that time I had to of jerked it about 5 times, and stood in the mirror staring at it for another 30 minutes before it shrunk back down to a stub. So I pumped for a month and actually saw some result, was thicker mostly. I kept at it for maybe another 3-4 months consistently and kept an eye on my “gains” and to my surprise my dick was actually growing. But one day I got a little too cocky and over pumped and my dick started hurting along the right side and I was properly freaked out. I quit right then and there and threw the damn thing away after breaking it into tiny pieces so that it couldn’t be recognized. All in all, my dick did grow, it’s about 6.5″ now and slightly more girthy.

Would I do it again? Hell no, its not worth it. After my penis injury scare I realized that its more embarrassing having to go to the hospital and tell them that I broke my dick in a penis pump than it is to have a average sized dick. After I got laid for the first time at 20 (late bloomer) I realized dick size didn’t even matter to most women and if it did that they aren’t the type of person I would want a relationship with anyways. I now have more self confidence than I did but I don’t contribute any of that to my magnum dong.

The best method I have found for penis enlargement is losing weight. I was overweight most of my life but senior year of high school I decided to get in shape. By sophomore year of college I was in great shape and my ween appeared to be at least 2 inches bigger. I mean… I’m sure that wasn’t true, but it looked like a completely different wang.

I’m sure this isn’t quite the answer folks are looking for… but if you’re a bit pudgy and concerned about the size of your penis, try to get in shape. It’s not easy, but it is awesome.

I’m 19 years old and this is my story.

Just this May, I was with a new girlfriend from university. We’d been together only three weeks but we’d had sex quite a number of times. While she was giving me oral sex, she told me that my penis was a lot smaller than the other guys she’s been with. Let me be clear that she was literally holding it while she said this.

Now I didn’t know how to take this. Stupid, insecure me being a hopeless romantic wanted to improve myself for my girlfriend. I’m fairly normal in terms of size, 5.75 long and 5 around, but I was seriously hurt by this comment.

I went online and found a website claiming to increase your size. These guys preached a technique called jelqing, and the idea is to grip your shaft from the base at around 50% erection and milk it. So I did this ‘jelqing’ for two weeks, following some regimen they had for beginners.

At the end of the second week, I woke up to find that I could no longer get hard. I assumed maybe I overworked it, whatever. This lasted for five days and I was panicking. The day I went to a clinic to find out what was wrong, I was finally getting erections again at about 30%. They referred me to a urologist and I explained to him what happened. He said to take a rest for 6 weeks, hopefully everything will be okay.

6 weeks passes and I still can’t achieve a full erection. My maximum was 70% and I was having weird symptoms with my member. I had developed a torsion of maybe 10 degrees, as in the head was rotated. Nothing too grotesque as I’ve seen other guys born with this naturally, but it just wasn’t straight anymore. The other symptom led to seaches online pointing to something called ‘hard flaccid,’ something not medically recognized as a real symptom. My penis would not go soft basically. It felt rubbery and stiff all the time, and it only relaxed to what I was used to if I was urinating or laying down on my back. It’s resistant to being moved and prevents me from getting an erection while standing up.

I saw two more urologists and two clinic doctors and told them what was going on. I made sure to be clear about the exact motions I made when I was trying this jelqing nonsense. One told me to have a cystoscopy done and the other said to take another 2 months rest. Cystoscopy came out clear. He still had no idea what was going on and said take a few months’ rest like the other doctor said.

Now, I’ve got another urologist appointment with the cystoscopy urologist in December after rest. He’s probably going to schedule me for a pelvic MRI but we have no idea what’s going on. There’s apparently no scar tissue, but my penis is stiff unless I’m resting on my back or after urinating.

Obviously my gf broke up the week after I had my issue. I don’t blame her for anything, it was my own insecurities that led me to my decision. I’m a young guy who didn’t know how to deal with the situation and I ended up doing something stupid. I’ve been majorly abstinent over the course of these four months or so. I didn’t touch anything down there until about two weeks ago. It’s been a challenge but I’m putting my health first.

Please be happy with what you have. Don’t let other people put you down and recognize that a good partner would accept you for who you are. Be secure in what you’ve been given. A small, working dick will always be better than a broken 7-inches.

Oh, and if by some miracle one of you have heard of a similar situation to mine or recognize the problem, please let me know. I’ve been to counseling offered by my university to get over this mentally, but I’m going to stay positive in that I might one day recover.

Okay, here’s the thing. I tried them.

First off, they don’t work as people think they would. There’s usually stuff in it that increases the flow of blood, so your penis looks more swelled up. They also usually contain zinc, which makes you cum more. Some of the herbs make you last longer.

All of those three things is good for your self-confidence. And so, in a weird way, they so work! However, I cannot recommend it to anyone.

It’s way better to take your multi-vitamins, drink lots of water, exercise regularly, wear loose underwear and generally be aware of penile health. Manscaping is also a very solid option. It’ll not only make it look bigger, its more appealing to almost every woman I’ve ever met.

But the most important thing is to be happy about your dick. I’ve got an average (5 inch) penis, but I was convinced I couldn’t satisfy any woman ever. And honestly, when I was under that impression, it killed my self confidence and I couldn’t act sexy because I didn’t feel sexy.

So, fuck all the nonsense. Your dick is your dick. Most probably, it’s fine. If it is too short, learn how to go down on your partner. Treat that pussy like a temple. Get some toys. This is the 21st century my man, there’s a ton of options s available!

Confidence is more than the size of your dick. Read books, have opinions. Instead of wasting your money of those shitty pills, upgrade your wardrobe. Be happy with yourself. Women find that damn sexy.

Definitely DON’T TRY THIS!! I lost my ability to get and keep a normal erection at the age of 18 (I’m 25 now), lost almost all sensitivity in my penis. Fucked up my sexual life. I was struggling with suicidal thoughts for years. Doing therapy has helped but the stigma is still there.

I didn’t treat the problem at the time because of shame, lack of money and health insurance. How do you explain your parents and friends that you have ED for such a stupid accident??

The funny thing is that I initially came across those exercises (jelqing and stretching, the latter caused the worst damage) while searching how to straighten the curvature, not for an enlargement method. Even though I’m slightly below average, it wasn’t a big deal (no pun intended).

I needed to get this off my chest. Please, don’t make the same mistake I did. It’s not worth taking the risk

TL;DR: don’t jelq (can damage vessels), don’t stretch (can damage nerves).

— throwawaypermaed


Not enlargement but once tried a weird knock-off viagra bought online. Gave me the dongest of dongs for a good few hours but also made my vision go BLUE. Everything BLUE. Slept it off and woke up to normal vision.

Looked in the mirror — left pupil about twice the size of the right. That was 6 years ago. Left pupil still a constant 20% or so larger than the right to this day, so I guess I enlarged something…

— jonnyapps


My uncle had a pump surgically inserted into his stomach, connected to a balloon inside of his dick. You press a button on his stomach and his dick inflates – instant hard on. I am not joking.

— RedPillBill


I dated a guy who said he wore one of those penis stretchers (NSFW). It sounded like a torture device. He had to wear it for hours a day. For months at a time.

He said he gained… I don’t even remember. It was enough for it to matter to him. He was fine the way he was. He would have been fine had he done nothing to change his size.

One of the things I took away from dating him is how insecure men can be about their penis size. So whenever I date anyone, I always tell them the very specific details in how I love their penis. I never lie – that would be too tough to maintain long-term – but I always find something. Huge girth. Love the way it curves. The hardest I’ve ever been with. I can barely fit it in my mouth. Whatever. I don’t understand the penis-insecurity but I am going to do my best to rid this world of penis insecurities, one cock at a time.

— thisis4reddit


I tried Enzyte for about a week or so once years ago and it did help. Not with length but with girth. Didn’t tell my gf at the time and she noticed she was more filled out with me inside her. It was nice lol.



Yeah they work, but it is very possible to overdo it and permanently damage yourself.

With a pump you can gain about an inch in girth and length before it becomes unnatural – thing is if you have a foreskin that will balloon when you thrust and you’ll end up stuck. Not the greatest thing in the world… especially if you unkindly wind up accidentally hitting cervix even without using any “enhancement.”

Now, you may think that knotting your GF or wife sounds fun, and it is. Thing is, it is her body and it is seriously not cool to be stuck in someone who is having instant regret.

That isn’t permanent, some people say it can be but I’m pretty sure they’re exaggerating. On the plus side, they make you super sensitive, and can be used on women as well… just don’t overdo it.

Tension machines take much much longer and have permanent results. Thing is, they can result in ED. Those are mostly recommended for medical applications – and they are effective. They suck for foreplay.

Sides that, take Zinc while you’re in puberty. No idea if it actually works, but anecdotally it can. All in all, I’d say risking your procreative ability isn’t worth it.

— ThrowawayKnotted


Not so much dick enlargement, but dick hardening yeah. They seemed like they either kinda worked, but were not reliable.

Ended up finding that using kegel exercises while jacking off was the answer. And give yourself the rule you gotta be rock hard before you can finish.

Dicks have muscles too, go figure.

— greyflcn


I can say with certainty that there are methods that work. There’s a giant penis enlargement community out there which has developed tons of methods for penis enlargement. It goes way beyond just penis pumping.

I gained 0.5 inches in length very easily, and have gained some girth too, although that was much harder. Other people have gained way more than I have. There are two very good penis enlargement forums that I don’t want to mention here cause I don’t know if they’ll get overloaded with traffic.

The thing about it though is that people either don’t want to believe it, or they don’t want to put in the effort for it to happen. I’ve told at least a couple friends about it and neither tried it more than once or twice and then gave up. Other people are maniacal about it and will do whatever it takes to get a bigger cock.

Edit: I’m talking about manual penis enlargement, not some BS pills or creams or supplements.

— mikesalami


I used a pump about 3 times a week over the period of 4 or 5 months. I gained like a quarter inch in length. Also it stays a bit bigger when flaccid now which is kind of nice. The purpose was actually more to gain girth which didn’t happen at all.

The catch was that I got some minor stretch marks on my shaft. Not from the permanent growth, but from the swelling while pumping. I think I could have avoided them if I hadn’t pumped as hard. Some people also do things like wear condoms while pumping to keep the swelling down.

Anyway, the marks faded over time and they aren’t noticeable, so I don’t have too deep of regrets. But I don’t think I’d recommend it. You’re not going to go from small to average, or from average to big or anything. There’s more damage to be done than good.

So i’ve been using a penis pump for about 3 years now, and also using extenders (that keep your penis stretched for long periods of time), as well as manual exercises here and there.

It has worked for me…but very slowly and takes a lot of time. I have gained about an inch in girth, and a bit more than half an inch in length during these years. that’s unpumped and under normal conditions.

It takes a lot of time and effort, and honestly, if you are doing this for women or whatever, it won’t be worth it. It’s better to invest your time in that actual woman, hanging out, having sex, ect. But I like pumping, and women tend to dislike it, but some like it now and then.

Pumping does give your temporary gains, and those temporary gains can get more and more significant the more you pump. Those temporary gains are a blast to me. I know it’ll “deflate” back to normal in some hours, but it’s a blast while it’s large. it gets addictive, too. You try to chase that huge pump you had a few days ago, but your body just isn’t there sometimes. It’s like working out. Somedays you can run 10 miles and feel great, or your breaking personal lifting records. Somedays you can barely put a dent in your usual routine.

In my opinion, I think stretching is the most effective way to enlarge the penis. The issue is, manual stretches can give you some gains when you first start (some of those early games is just stretching the ligaments attached to your penis, bring it “out” more). but after that, it takes a lot more time to get more and more gains. So extenders are useful, you wear them under your clothes and such, but are uncomfortable, annoying, difficult to fit, and expensive.

I’ve been doing penis exercises for about a year now. Went from 6 inches on a good day to 7 inches regularly.

There’s a risk of breaking your penis doing it but there is a subreddit for guidance.

I literally damaged the nerves on my dick and can no longer sustain an erection through jelqing methods.

Don’t fucking do it.

— dickdontwurk


There are definitely sure ways to increse your penis size. One of them is called “jelqing” and there are websites dedicated to it with hundreds of thousands of members (and just as many testimonials).

The thing with penis enlargement is that just like working out, any product that guarentees results without effort (pills, shakes, surgeries) are for the most part complete bullshit.

What you want is to create a routine similar to a workout routine only for your dick. Starting out you want to pursue the method refered to as jelqing. But after you max out your gains or if you want to add more intensity you can add in “hanging” or some devices (after researching which is best suited to your routine).

Working out your penis is just like working out your body. If you do it wrong your going to injure yourself, and if you do it really wrong you could have permanent injuries. This usually puts guys off but its really easy to avoid injuries if your smart about it.

As for me I went from 6.4 erect length to 7.2 and from 4.8 girth to 5.2. Great for my confidence and yea theres a difference with sex. My results aren’t even that great there are guys who go crazy with it and get massive gains. It took me about a year of doing it 4 times a week to reach where I am.

— Grillmybutthole


I use a product called the bathmate x30 and intermitant jelqing, used it for about 6 months straight, I have gained girth .25 of an inch. Gained about half an inch in length. If you keep on your bathmate regimen you will see an increase in flacid size, if you stop it goes back to the slightly improved permanent size. It’s a little bit of an annoyance to draw baths on the regular but if you are commited it’s no issue and you will get gains.

One thing to note, I have noticed a reduced sensitivity on the glans. It’s harder for me to ejaculate and I last much longer and alot of the times I can’t even get off 100% from sex. Is it worth it? I would say yes although I miss the super sensitivity pre pumping but I’m sure my g/f doesnt lol

— cheesymold


There are several methods that are known to give permanent gains:

Jelqing (slight length/girth increases that cap out for length around an inch and girth at roughly half an inch)

Clamping (over long periods of time can gain 1-2 inches of girth)

Hanging (some people have reported .5-1 inch length gains and up to 3 inches length gains)

I have been hanging for a few years on and off. My penis size started at 6 inches and now I am around 8.25 inches with slightly more girth. Planning on hanging until I have 10 inches but the way I had initially been hanging was wrong (noosing instead of holding tissue) and I have been trying to get the tissue to adapt.

The Psychology Behind Soulmates, And Whether Or Not They Actually Exist

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 06:30 PM PST

Kukuh Himawan Samudro
Kukuh Himawan Samudro

We often hear the term "soulmate", but how many of us actually believe in such a concept? How many of us believe that there is one specific person out there, that is "meant" to be with us …and us with them?

According to the latest Marist poll, 73% of the American population believe in the concept of a soulmate while 27% do not.

Is the percentage of people who believe on the rise? Or the decline?

The concept of a "soulmate" would appear to be on the rise. In the previous poll, carried out a year earlier, only 66% said they believed in the concept …while 34% said they did not.

When we break down the statistics further, the younger the person is, the more likely they are to believe in the concept:

  • Under 30: 80% believed in the soulmate concept
  • 30-40: 78% believed in it
  • 45-59: 72% believed in it
  • Over 60's: 65% believed in it

But is believing in this concept a good idea?

Whether it is a good thing or not to believe in the soulmate concept really depends on your current relationship situation. If you are in love with the person, believing that it was your destiny to end up with this one specific person can actually strengthen that relationship.

However, if you were to break up with someone who you thought was your soulmate, it can make recovery from that breakup almost impossible. Thinking your ex was "the one" or your "soulmate" is one of the leading factors that cause people to pine for an ex for years after a breakup.

So, do soulmates really exist?

The reality is that soulmates don’t exist in real life …but are only an artificial construct in our minds as a result of the movies we see and the songs we listen to.

In my book, "THE ERASE CODE: How To Get Over Anyone In Less Than A Week Using Psychology," I show how to remove the belief from your mind that your ex was "the one" or "soulmate" …and in this way, fast-track your recovery from that breakup in a much quicker way than would other wise be the case.  TC mark

15 Men Confess To The Biggest Lies They’ve Ever Told Their Wives And Girlfriends

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 06:00 PM PST

That I liked her mother. Satan better watch out, because the day that woman croaks Hell is going to have a new ruler.



That I didn’t mind her tattoo of her ex’s name.

It was on her chest/shoulder. Had to see it every time I undressed her.

Never got easier just ignored it.

Thank god. I got out of that one.



That I forgave her after she had a threesome with our best friends/roommates. I thought I could at the time but looking back I knew it wasn’t true and should have cut it right there instead of dragging out another year afterwards. I never truly believed another word that came out of her mouth after.



That I’ve never seen someone die in my line of work.



Whenever my ex would ask me “do you think she’s pretty?” I would always say no. Even if she asked me about celebrities/models. I think it got to a point where it was really obvious I was lying too



That her cooking was fine, even great.

She didn’t learn to cook / bother to be interested in it until ~3-4 years into the relationship. Then she wanted to learn it. By now, she does okay, but the way there was a struggle. Simply because the one quality, besides a working sense of taste/smell that you need in cooking, is patience. And that is not part of her personality.

As a result, the meals she cooked initially put my ability to smile through tears to the test; and I am quite proud of my managing to belt out praises of her cooking amidst my body’s silent screams of of GAAAAH AAAAAAH GAAAAH IT’S BAAAD MY MOUUUTH MY BEAUTIFUL BOUUUUTH RAAAAAAH MAKE IT STAAAAHP GAAAAAAH.



We will be close friends even if we break up.



I cheated on my then GF some years ago and there were multiple witnesses, including close friends of her, and they told her what I had done. She was so into me and trusted me so much that she would believe anything I said, so I denied it and said her friends were all lying or had misinterpreted stuff. Hell, there could have been video evidence and I would just have denied it and she would have believed me.

Anyway she confronted one of her close friends about why she was making stuff up about me, and they had a fight and fell apart because of that. I felt really bad about it, because she really cared about me and would have forgiven me if I had confessed. I was an asshole back then.



I don’t want to have sex with any of her friends.



“Of course we’ll try again in a year or two, we just aren’t financially ready for a kid right now”

She got the abortion and it was the biggest favor I could have done for that kid, that lady was psycho. Left her about six months later.



That I don’t watch porn.



Told her a female friend was just a friend. Which was only sort of true. I never thought of her as anything more than a friend, but I had sex with her so many times, I probably didn’t beat that total number with my wife until recently.



That I’m fine, I’m just tired.



“I don’t mind the racist comments your family says about me to my face.”

So I’m older than her, by a few years and we started dating around Christmas a 7 years ago. Her family treats it like a joke, but it gets more descriptive and more aggressive every year. There have been times when I was called their token N****r or that I’m their little porch monkey (I do apologize for the descriptive language) I’ve been through 8-9 failed dating experiences in the past so I guess I’ve always tried to slough it off even though the situation can sometimes gets unbearable. I just didn’t want to be alone and hey they hadn’t tried to hurt me physically so maybe I can take a few remarks now and then was my thinking process.



That I’m 100% straight.

So, lived in New Orleans for a while. Worked as a bartender on Bourbon St. I was leaving work around 6:30 am. The sun was coming up and there was a fairly decent mix of people either just starting their day, or going home. One of the strip clubs closer to Canal St. has pictures of scantily clad women on the outside of the building.

There was a homeless guy, pants around his ankles like some little kids do at urinals, straight up dick in his hand jerking it in broad daylight in the middle of the sidewalk to some of the pictures on the building. Did not make eye contact and quickly went to the other side of the street. In hindsight, the sidewalk was probably his bedroom, so…

I used to live in a second floor flat with an ex girlfriend and the flat overlooked the back garden of the pub next door. One evening I’m in our bedroom and hear a load of noise coming from the pub garden.

I peer out of the window half expecting there to be a fight or at least something of an aggressive nature happening since it was a pretty dire pub. Instead I see a semicircle of people cheering on some stripper who is in the midst of losing her clothes for some guy who’s sat in the middle of this semi circle and on one of the pub benches. Once she’s lost all her clothes she then bends over, arse to the crowd, unzips this guy’s trousers and gives him a blow job right there in the garden.

This was not the most surprising thing. What surprised me the most was while she was bent over, one of the guys watching turns to his mate with a big grin (I can’t hear what anyone is saying, only the cheering)…he then walks up behind the stripper and proceeds to slide the neck of his beer bottle into her pussy and bottle fucks her with no warning whatsoever…

I expected her to immediately back up, slap him and leave. Instead she writhes around and takes it with pleasure, a lot of pleasure! At some point during this show, I’d called the ex into the room and when we proceeded to have a good ten minute show from our bedroom window. That was an entertaining evening!

This was in NJ. I remember before I got my car I would have to take the bus to work. One day it was as usual, I was just sitting about midway in the bus on the right side, next thing you know some guy comes on, pays his fare and sits down.

He proceeded to take his hat off and dry shave his head (he had a hair length of what you’d expect after no shaving for a week, not long) with a razor that looked like an old disposable. I look at him in awe as he’s shaving his head bare like that and I begin to see blood just coming off the parts he shaved with the other parts just being spotted patches of hair.

By the time his stop came, he was bleeding quite a bit, and he just put his hat back on and got off. After that day I never sat down on any public transportation and have also stood up since. Never again.

Another client in the long term adolescent rehab facility I was in went defiant for a few months. Lots of crazy things during this time, but the best (worst?) was out in the parking lot one day.

We’ll refer to him as “D.” D intentionally let wild diarrhea loose which promptly vacated the legs of his shorts and soaked the ass area. D then starts pulling it out of his pants, off of the pavement and back of his leg, and starts throwing it at us, occasionally applying a streak here and there to his own face. Staff of course came after him to subdue and sedate him, and their pursuit was met with spicy molten shitsquirts. There was something really poetic about watching social workers in christmas sweaters tackle and restrain a young man covered in his own shit. You could’ve put “Yakety Sax” behind the whole thing.

D later (like, 2 months later) apologized to the group. He gave weird details in his apology, including the amount of Hot Sauce he intentionally consumed with his breakfast in his cereal that day for the desired effect. The fuck.

Guy was high on something and came to the factory totally out of it. Too fucked up to work the assembly line, so they had him breaking down boxes with a box knife. He put one box on his thigh, and proceeded to cut a 2 foot long cut through the box and into his inner thigh without noticing it. Well, unless you consider passing out to be noticing.

No nudity involved, but on an NYC subway, very crouded, rush hour, a man clearly had his hand down a womans skirt, and she was biting her lip.



Worked on a court case of a guy who’s thing was filling syringes (presumably, no needle) with his semen, and squirting them on the legs of young women as they were using the escalator during rush hour.

He would just stand behind them, shoot it up their skirt, and walk off. They wouldn’t necessarily know but he was caught on CCTV because he did this multiple times a day. Before that he had a record for exhibitionism (flashing) and then progressed on to this.

How To Celebrate Thanksgiving In Your 20s

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 04:30 PM PST


Thanksgiving in your twenties feels odd. There are important people – the most important people – missing, and new strange people at the table to replace them. Not bad strange, just new strange. You want to like them, and you want to make them feel comfortable with your family, but the irrational part of you sees this as betrayal. And running this through your brain over and over again is exhausting.

You travel back home but you’re staying with relatives or in a hotel because your childhood home isn’t yours anymore. The whole trip is decidedly uncanny – both so familiar and unfamiliar at the exact same time. And parsing out the bifurcation of this is, again, exhausting.

You manage to eke out an afternoon with your remaining childhood friends while you’re in town, and you reminisce about the block, or homecoming, or that really bizarre field trip.

You laugh at how completely nuts you were then. It’s fun and it’s nice and it’s surprisingly emotional, because you understand that you’ll never be that carefree again.

Thanksgiving in your twenties is like realizing you’re Holden Caulfield looking up at the rye cliff from below. You’ve made the plunge into adulthood, and it’s impossible to jump back up to how things were when you were little. Everything has changed and feels haunted by its difference. Though you understand that things and places and people are allowed to change — despite the fact that you’ve left them all behind years ago — a small part of you sort of hopes that this turns out to be untrue.

So you do your best to lean into the changes. You are grateful for the new, perfect babies at the table who alleviate a solid chunk of the tension and anxiety you feel. You are grateful for your family, past and present. You are grateful for both the blissful childhood that you had and for your new twenty-something life.

You remember the pride you take in your new, adult-seeming responsibilities. You remember how much you actually really like your life now. You try to stop thinking — because it’s totally freaking exhausting. So you take a big, yoga breath. You count down from four. You get out of your head. You smile.

And then you eat everything. TC mark

31 Real Guys Reveal The Excruciatingly Petty Reasons Why They’ve Ghosted A Girl

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 04:00 PM PST



Her style of texting was really annoying to me and I couldn’t handle it. She would use ellipses as if they were fancy periods and would end everything which could possibly be construed as a question with a question mark. Her use of emojis was also out of hand.

Part of me wonders if I’m really that much of a dick that I would give up on an attractive girl who was interested in me for something so stupid, but I don’t really regret it. Reading her texts would always piss me off.

She would never type the correct Your or Your’re. And when I brought it up one day telling her bad grammar irritates me, she started using “ur” instead of either one.

Broke up with her that same week.

Because when we were on a date I was doing EVERYTHING. At first it was okay, when you meet somebody who’s pretty good looking and funny and intelligent it takes a while to realize. And then one day it hit me like a brick through the window:

I picked where we met, when we met, I picked the bar we went to and every single decision was just met with a blank stare. Even a simple thing would be this purgatory of guesswork where I’d either have to guess what would be a hit or we’d go through this awful thing say at a bar like:

“Maybe you’d like an IPA?”
“eww I hate beer it’s gross!”
“Fine how about a cocktail?”
“I’m trying to cut down on sugar.”

The thing that did it was we were at dinner when the waiter came to take the order I realized I was expected to order for both of us without even having a discussion like this was the 1950s. I knew I couldn’t do this, I want a partner not a passenger.

A White Girl’s Answers To ‘Four White Girl Fashion Trends That I Have Serious Questions About’

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 02:00 PM PST

Christopher Campbell
Christopher Campbell

A recent article on Post Grad Problems posed some important and serious questions about White Girl Fashion.

I have spent 22 years in the field studying Generic White Girls (because I am one), and have decided now, more than ever, the world deserves answers.

But, side note: I’m frankly kind of concerned that the author could only come up with four things he needs answers for. What about peplum tops? How do we French braid our own hair? Do we all have one of those giant floppy hats? Why do we wear high waisted shorts? How do bralettes work? How do we maneuver wearing a romper when we need to pee? What the fuck are bangles?

Alas, here are the uncovered truths behind these four trends that a dude on the internet is very confused by.


Top Knots

I know that not all fashion trends need to serve a purpose, but out of all the fashion trends that have come across my feed lately, top knots have me the most perplexed. I'm not talking about buns or up-dos or whatever high-maintenance brides request and later regret because their stylist can't get it right – I'm talking about top knots, Those little balls of hair that rest on top of your had that allow the back of your hair to fall freely while really only holding back your bangs.

I sincerely don't know if I just don't jive with the actual look of the top knot, or if I feel like I'm just staring at Legolas from Lord of the Rings who just got his top knot chopped off in battle. Or perhaps I'm just used to seeing Jessa and Shoshanna fully commit to the full-on top bun which makes this look completely foreign to me.

Is it too much to ask to just leave this bun to the people we hate like Harry Styles and The Fat Jewish?


The top knot is an incredibly revolutionary hairstyle that has changed the way we think. In layman’s terms, basically, we can now throw our hair up in a half bun and still be photographed/Snapchatted without it looking like we don’t have any hair.

Why put our hair up in the first place? Why not commit to leaving it fully down instead, in order to avoid the aforementioned Photo Baldness Mishap?

For reasons ranging from having greasy hair that morning to waking up and realizing that you stupidly slept with your hair in a messy bun and so now the top layer of your hair is super crimped and curly at odd angles, which makes it impossible to wear completely down.

Thus, Queen Ariana Grande was sent from the Heavens to introduce us to this hairstyle (that sort of gives us a headache sometimes, but beauty is pain, or whatever) so that we can continue being photographed and looking like we didn’t try super hard when we were getting ready this morning.


Choker Necklaces

When you're bloated from all the sugar in the champagne and the wedding band has already played shout, there comes a time in every man's life that I imagine is the male equivalent of taking their bra off after a long day – when they can finally undo their bow tie and free up their neck from the constraints of their tuxedo.

I know, I know – women don't have Adam's apples but that's beside the fact because I still can't imagine that choker necklaces are that much more comfortable than bow ties. While no, fashion isn't always meant to be comfortable, it just feels like there are other options out there that don't wring your neck and put out a The Craft vibe. Believe me, if there was a more comfortable option than a bow tie, I'd snatch up two in case I got too drunk and ripped the first one.

Hey, if they're comfortable, I support your decision just like I'd hope you support my decision to fully transition into joggers because of the elastic waistbands. But if they're constricting you in any way at all, just know that I support your decision to walk away from the trend and let it die a lonely death like the girls from The Craft would've wanted.


The White Girl History of the choker goes waaaay back to Queen Victoria, who was all about “putting out a The Craft vibe” in late 1800s.

Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria was tooootally a Sarah.

The main difference between chokers and bow ties is that chokers aren’t actually as painful as they look (also our ribbon chokers are what’s holding our heads in place, so we really can’t take them off).

Chokers are an excellent indicator of who the Cool Girls are (this should’ve been obvious when I used Queen Victoria as an example). You’ll find these girls wearing dark lipsticks, not ordering salads for lunch, and definitely at Coachella (bonus points if she’s also wearing fringe!).


Destroyed Denim

Okay, okay – before I begin, let me clarify. I don't mean all destroyed denim. Denim, naturally, is made to be worn to its bitter end. Many a white boy has worn his JNCOs to the point where mud puddles seep up the frayed backs just like many a cowboy have ripped their Wranglers on some killer cacti. But the destroyed denim I have questions about is the new fad where pretty much an entire third of the jean is ripped out of the front of the knee. Kind of like what Kourtney Kardashian is wearing.

The way that I've always looked at destroyed denim is that it's naturally damaged. But these just look like Edward Scissorhands was the salesperson at Forever 21 and they enforced a strict "you break it, you buy it" policy when he attempted to check you out. It looks like two landmines exploded out of the knees and Kanye West said, "You know what? It's perfect" and slapped them on Kim because he knew there was nothing else like it on the market. Besides, isn't one of the benefits of wearing jeans that you don't have to shave your legs? I mean, I pretty much always wear a shirt solely so people can't see my rogue back hairs.


I personally can't vouch for this because I generally avoid pants at all costs. But if guys can still wear fuckin’ cargo shorts, we 110% can wear pants with holes in them. Cargo shorts have 87 different sized pockets. Destroyed denim allows us the small victory of only needing to shave our knees.


Winged Eyeliner

You know when you were little and you'd watch those shows on the discovery channel where some psycho painted the Mona Lisa on the end of a needle with a piece of hair or some shit? That's what I imagine trying to get the perfect wing of mascara on your eye is like. Does it look good? Absolutely. Do I worry about your hand cramping up when you're on try number five and your Uber driver has his thumb hovering over the "Cancel" button? Yes, yes, I do. I know it's very Ariana Grande of you, but wouldn't it be easier to just simplify the process? Or am I completely out of touch and it takes no longer than any other way of putting on makeup? Fuck. I'm definitely out of touch.


Eyes are the windows to our souls, and how on point our eyeliner is correlates to how much of a better person we are. We’re not going to half-ass that flick at the outer corners of our eyes just because our Uber driver is on the way (our rating can’t get much lower than it already is). We’re going to whole-ass all five attempts at perfection, because the day we show up anywhere with mismatched eyes is the day hell freezes over. TC mark

Ex-BFFs: 54 People On Why They Never Talk To Their Former Best Friend Anymore

Posted: 23 Nov 2016 01:00 PM PST

…at my wife’s funeral."

2. He fucked my wife.

"He started bullying me when we started high school."

4. He (a schizophrenic) went off his meds again and killed his own dad.

"He (a schizophrenic) went off his meds again and killed his own dad."

5. She always had bullied me, copied my homework, and told me I was stupid.

"She always had bullied me, copied my homework, and told me I was stupid. Was so depressed I tried killing myself, she told the entire school what I did."

6. When a close friend of mine died, he joked about it.

"When a close friend of mine died, he felt that he didn’t need to support me at all and decided to joke about it. Haven’t spoken to him since."

7. He didn't invite me to his bachelor's party.

"Got invited to his wedding, all night long I heard about how awesome the bachelor’s party had been and asked why I hadn’t come along—because I wasn’t invited or told about it."

8. I let him move in and I found used syringes IN MY FUCKING SHOES.

"Let him move in because of issues at his home. Started missing money and found used syringes IN MY FUCKING SHOES."

9. She told me she was friends with me only out of pity.

"She bailed on plans I had already paid for without an apology or anything, told me she didn't 'owe me an explanation,' told me she was only friends with me out of pity, and then threatened to call the cops if I dropped her stuff off in person instead of having a friend do it. All within a 15-minute text convo."

10. She directed her friends to rape me when I was passed out.

"I was partaking in some festivities (of the druggish nature) and when I passed out, she proceeded to take advantage of her fucked up boyfriend and other best friend, direct them to play with my body and give me oral live on chat roulette all while I was passed out. I shouldn’t have to mention to friends “Hey, if at any point I’m not conscious and can’t give verbal consent, don’t rape me please.”. The other two participants were very remorseful when they found out what they did, she thought it was hilarious and told us after we were all sober. She was a very emotionally abusive person in general, so when she told me what happened and was laughing, it wasn’t out of the question that she was just making it up to provoke me, so for about a year I went around thinking it was a joke. A fight broke out between one of the participants and one of my roommates and when I protected him I was hit with 'WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU PROTECTING HIM, HE FUCKING RAPED YOU,' then I spent the day with my world turned upside down because I couldn’t believe I maintained these 3 friendships for a year, completely clueless. I spent the day confirming and getting the whole story…it fucking sucked. To this day she doesn’t think she did anything wrong because she didn’t participate in the actual rape. I think what she did was much worse."

11. He’s the flakiest, most unreliable person I know.

"Long story short: I love the guy, I wish we saw each other more often, but he’s the flakiest, most unreliable person I know. He treats everyone like they’re barely worth his time. Make plans with the guy and it’s a coin toss whether he’ll even show up. I’ve known him for 10 years and it’s only gotten worse, but I learned long ago that it’s a waste of time to chase him."

12. He was gay for me and made it super weird.

"He was gay for me and made it super weird. I didn’t mind (I wasn't gay) but he sure did and reminded me every day. I went insane and long story short we don’t speak anymore."

13. I lost my friends when my son died.

"I lost my friends when my son died. Instead of being supportive, they harassed me to come out drinking, or go to the bar. Like I had just been through a breakup and needed to go out. No, literally 24 hours ago I buried my baby in the ground ya fucks.

What is even more fucked, I said “I know you guys mean well but I don’t want to leave the house right now, my child just died. I am losing my mind. You can come over or even watch TV with me.” No one came, no one called. I was a bitch for shooting down going to the bar. Literally, the four girls I knew my whole life, bailed on me when I needed them the most.

It hurt. It hurts still but fuck them is all I can say. People’s true colors come out when you go through a tragedy and it sucks."

14. He was hitting on my GF and then I caught both of them together.

"He was hitting on my GF and then I caught both of them together. Yeah. Never talked to either of them."

15. His junkie girlfriend who was on probation stole $300 from me and abused my cat.

"His junkie girlfriend who was on probation stole $300 from me and abused my cat. He refused to believe she could do such a thing and got pissed off at me about it. Free blowjobs and housekeeping outweighed 20+ years of friendship."

16. Walked in on him moments after he was finished fucking my (now ex-) girlfriend in my room.

"Walked in on him moments after he was finished fucking my (now ex-) girlfriend in my room.

Karma was nice, though: he blew out his knee and can no longer play his sport professionally, I lost a lot of weight, and she found most of it."

17. She never initiates conversations.

"'I feel she doesn’t want to talk to me…what would happen if I stop initiating conversations?'"

Many months later, haven’t heard a single word from her."

18. I told her the truth about her boyfriend cheating on her, but she believed his lies instead.

"I deserve this one.

I set a good girl friend up with a close guy friend. Ngaww.
Then he started cheating on her. He thought since I was his mate he could tell me and I wouldn't tell her. Except…she was my friend too. I ended up basing my decision on a personal experience where an ex had cheated and everyone knew except me, how devastated and betrayed I had felt.

So I told her the truth.

She confronted him and his reply? ‘Shit. Don’t listen to her. She’s just fucking jealous. Just played matchmaker to get closer to me.’ Etc.

She believed him. So did my circle of friends on her side and his side."

I never quite got over that.

19. I needed emotional support during a very tough time and she wasn’t interested in helping.

"We grew apart. I needed emotional support during a very tough time and she wasn’t interested in helping, so I ended it."

20. She’d only really message me if she wanted something.

"She’d only really message me if she wanted something.

If she was down I’d try my best but if I was upset it was ‘oh I’m really not in the right place right now, talk later’ which is fair enough but I always tried to help her.

She’d also message me screenshots of the argument with her boyfriend, they’re a shit couple and my advice is always either ‘dump him’ or ‘talk it out’ which is never what she wants to hear but what am I supposed to do about it? I guess she just wants validation she’s right to be annoyed but she can be really unreasonable sometimes.

Oh and then she asks for money under some bullshit pretense and then buys weed. I know I shouldn’t fall for it and I’ve stopped now but y’know."

21. He slept with my girlfriend and sold his sister’s virginity to a guy for $100.

"He slept with my girlfriend and sold his sister’s virginity to a guy for $100. She was mentally unhealthy and immature on a diagnosable level, and he talked her into it telling her it was normal and that it would make her less anxious around people, and of course she believe him because he was her older brother."

22. The drugs they give him make him a completely different person.

"He was taken to a mental hospital, and the drugs they give him make him a completely different person."

23. My best friend ghosted on me.

"My best friend ghosted on me. We met in 3rd grade and were thick as thieves until I went to college. While I can recognize I wasn’t the greatest friend always, it was 100% her choice to stop being my friend. I admit—it still hurts nearly a decade later. I never got closure, and I doubt I ever will. I’m not sure she has thought out why or would give me the honest truth if I asked. She should have been my maid of honor, and it makes me really sad when I think of that. I try to remind myself that she caused drama for me—she was really passive aggressive and wouldn’t talk to me when I did something to bother her. She also never opened up to me about anything bothering her in other aspects of her life. I don’t need that back in my life. But I do miss the great times we had—all the inside jokes, the way we knew what was on each other’s minds—we absolutely killed at the game taboo!—and I have never gotten that close with anyone again. But I did read a really beautiful sentiment recently, which I will try to capture here. The people you have in your life grow and occupy space in the tapestry that makes up your life. When they are gone, it makes a hole where they used to be. The memories and love are still there and may always be there. So don’t look at your tapestry as filled with holes—look at it as your own unique lace pattern. The pattern isn’t over, but it is constantly changing. The pain of loss doesn’t ever really go away, but it does lessen over time."

24. He became a domestic abuser. No thanks.

"He became a domestic abuser. Started hitting his girlfriends in high school. No thanks."

25. She’s an eternal party girl, she just never grew up and now we can’t connect.

"She’s an eternal party girl, she just never grew up and now we can’t connect. She still runs around with young 20somethings and gets trashed for entertainment. I met up with her for lunch about 5 years ago. She showed up late, hungover, and wearing the clothing she wore partying all night which was drenched in booze and stunk."

26. I realized that I only talked to him because I had no one else to talk to.

"Because I realized that I only talked to him because I had no one else to talk to. I say that but honestly he was the only one to talk. Didn’t care about what I had to say.

Ended that 'friendship' really quick. Moved schools, met a new group of friends and haven’t looked back since."

27. She was never able to talk about anyone but herself.

"Being around her became very draining.

She was my best friend since kindergarten. She was never able to talk about anyone but herself, and eventually, the only jokes she’d make were severely self-depreciating (about her weight, her depression, all her flaws—serious things that I could not laugh about and brought the mood down every time). She had social anxiety so we were never able to go out and make new experiences together, and while I tried so, so hard for so many years to keep her actively included in group activities, she just did not cooperate—but complained when I didn’t do it. All of our conversations ended up “remember when we did this?”, half-laughing at stale, decade-old in-jokes, and playing single-player video games that she wouldn’t share; I was supposed to think watching is just as fun (it worked like this our whole lives. We’re 20 now.). Her goal is to never leave her parents’ house and be on welfare the rest of her life (they enable this).

I basically ghosted when we graduated high school. I feel terrible, but I felt worse when I had to look after her."

28. She dropped me because of a boy.

"She had just gotten a boyfriend and started work. Obviously these are big things in a person’s life, so I assumed that we wouldn’t be as close as we were once. But she took it to the extreme, her boyfriend was her life.

He worked FIFO, so when he was away she would finally come and see her friends, except I wasn’t included in her friend group anymore. Her work friends were her only friends.

I messaged her (only because she was 'too busy' to meet up with me) and asked her if there was something I did wrong. She said no, and although I didn’t really believe her I didn’t let it bother me and just strived to be the bestest friend I could be.
I started to get really fed up when the rare times we caught up, all she could talk about was her boyfriend. Which was okay, but I couldn't get a word in edgewise.

Eventually I never saw her anymore. This was five months of not seeing or hearing from her. We had a seven-year long friendship, and to see it end like this really fucking hurt. I still think about how we met—I walked her home because the school bullies were following her around and threatening her. I was always there for her and to see her drop me because of a boy and a job at fucking Target is so fucked."

29. Dropped me at the first sign of a boyfriend.

"Dropped me at the first sign of a boyfriend. Lied to a guy about the paternity of her unborn child. Several abortions because she couldn’t be asked to manage her contraception. Borrowed money and never paid back. Had a new boyfriend every week. Cheated on every guy she got into a relationship with. Refers to herself as a ‘princess’ and a ‘brat’—at nearly 30 years old.

I just don’t need that shit in my life.

I want a friend on a mutual maturity level, with some morals, and their own money—I didn’t work my ass off while you bummed around, to get a good job, to then finance her!"

30. He was a drug-addicted loser who owes me like £3000 pounds.

"Drug-addicted loser that didn’t pay any rent or bills for like six months 'I’ll pay you back soon dude, I swear' while simultaneously buying hundreds of pounds (£) worth of drugs, not talking to me unless he wanted something and leaving the house an utter shithole.

Asshole owes me like £3000 pounds, I wrote it off as my cost of getting rid of him when I moved out, he never would of payed it back anyway. We were friends for 10 years, haven’t spoken to him since."

31. She was always one-upping me, comparing us and making herself feel better about her appearance.

"She was toxic. Always one-upping me, comparing us and making herself feel better about her appearance, always leaving me for other 'best friends' and telling them all of my personal shit…the list goes on."

32. I found out my ex had been cheating the entire time with her.

"My best friend in high school. We were inseparable. I cried really hard when she moved away just before senior year. I kept in contact with her constantly.

Then we grew apart a little. Life happened, and then after I got out of a very abusive relationship I found out my ex had been cheating the entire time with her. I told her what had happened with the abuse, and she didn’t believe me.

Our relationship was damaged, but I didn’t cut her out. It wasn’t until she joined some kind of religious garbage that I finally cut her out. She began posting some vile things against Obama during the whole Hobby Lobby fiasco, and I reminded her that bc pills weren’t used for just birth control. I used mine to control ovarian cysts, and it wouldn’t be right to cut so many women off by removing it from insurance. She responded that babies were far more important than me developing another large cyst, because they were “innocent” and I was not.

I told her to fuck off permanently after that.

I should clarify that they cheated emotionally. They sexted often as I was told."

33. She got into a super SJW crowd.

"She got into a super SJW crowd…we used to be able to talk candidly about anything and now it’s like walking on eggshells talking to her. She also made no effort towards the friendship the last couple of years, but would text me every 3 months or so ‘I’m so sorry I’m such a shitty friend, thanks for being there for me’ so I stopped responding with an ‘it’s alright, life can be hectic’ and instead just replied with a ‘yep.’"

34. He cut me out of his life.

"He cut me out of his life.

He was my best friend for 15+ years. We had grown a bit apart due to different lifestyle choices, but we always spoke at least once a week and found time to spend with each other.

He was constantly talking about feeling stuck in our home town and wanting to explore the world, but worried about paying for it. About two years ago I helped him get a job with my company. It was not a very exciting job, but it paid twice as much as he was making before, so I figured it would help him save up for traveling.

About six months into the job, we were working together and got into an argument. We had fought a few times in our friendship and this did not seem any different than other times; I was over it by the time I went home.

He missed the next 2-3 days of work, then emailed our manager saying he quit. He removed me from all of his friends lists, and will not respond to phone calls, text messages, or emails. I admit I am not the easiest person to get along with at times, but after a 15-year relationship I would have liked to at least said a proper goodbye.

It has been 18 months since he’s talked to me. He was my guy and now most days I feel alone."

35. She enjoyed belittling me whenever we argued over something.

"She enjoyed belittling me whenever we argued over something and not only put details of said arguments online, she twisted it to make me look like I was 100% at fault and painted herself as the victim. She did that to everyone, and she probably still does. She picks fights over such minor things and involves herself in things she shouldn’t.

The last straw, however, was her insulting my fiancée. Once we both blocked her, she found out via a different account that she had made it public as she always does. We then started getting threats from her, which just confirmed we made the right decision in kicking her out of our lives. I had wanted to leave for years but I was too scared to go.

I knew her for eleven years. She’s nine years older than me (33) yet her maturity levels are way behind for someone of her age. During the years we were friends, she didn’t mature in the slightest and I don’t believe she ever will. Part of me feels sorry for her actually."

36. He would put me down in front of other people.

"He was nice, when it was just us two,
But a prick, when others came too,
I thought he liked my presence and company
Only later did I see, his need to belittle me
I mistook his putdowns as acts of friendship
and thought it was me, who was just supposed to take it
I was the fat guy and him the fit
Looking back, it did seem odd, a tad bit
I moved away to study more
He stayed put, to take in drinks galore
I thought it was a farewell, goodbye
But little did I expect, to completely forget the guy
For true friends did I really meet
People who were just nice and not for a treat
Way past the need for love and fame
They wouldn’t care, even If I was lame
Joked and laughed till we cried
Wouldn’t regret even if that second we died
They showed me what was true bro love
Made me feel, like a finger in a glove?
Looking back, I wonder if it was a waste
A friendship that I had taken as the best, in haste
No matter now, time has flown
I’m sure, even he has grown
With friends like mine, I'm in the best of it.
For they wouldn’t hesitate to say, this poem is shit."

37. I realized that I was the only one really giving my all in our friendship.

"I realized that I was the only one really giving my all in our friendship. She didn’t care and didn’t bother, I was sort of a filler friend to her. The worse part was she laughed along when someone else made fun of me! Sometimes I kinda miss the times we shared but I guess I needed to be better to myself :’)"

38. He told me to break up with my girlfriend, then started hitting on her.

"He told me to break up with my girlfriend at one point and when I did he hit her up and started hanging out with her."

39. He got rejected by a girl and suddenly became very depressive and shut in.

"He got rejected by a girl and suddenly became very depressive and shut in. We tried to support him but he didn't want to go out, or have any relation with our group of friends. With time things gold cold and we barely speak to each other anymore. He's 27 and still living with his parents and doesn't work or study, and barely walks out his house. It's sad but we got tired of trying to drag him out."

40. She became addicted to heroin.

"She became addicted to heroin. I tried to help her but she just became a totally different person…stole from me, amongst other things. I miss her :("

41. He was massively rude to my girlfriend.

"He was a massive dick and was massively rude to my girlfriend over a weekend and completely blanked her after inviting us over before he got massively drunk and passed out, leaving us downstairs with his fiancĂ©, so very awkward. The last time I spoke to him I told him I wasn’t going to be his best man anymore at his wedding, which was last May, I sometimes miss seeing him as a friend but there’s no excusing blanking someone like that, it’s just rude."

42. She turned out to be a crazy, paranoid bitch.

"She turned out to be a crazy, paranoid bitch. Was 100% convinced that the intelligence agencies were spying on her, that her phone was tapped and that they were following her. I’m like honey you are not that interesting. She was anxious, depressed and refused to get help. Fought constantly with her therapists until they all sacked her as a patient. At this time, I was undergoing my own fight with newly diagnosed bipolar disorder, so hanging out with her was setting back my own progress (dissing my taking medication, telling me seeing a psych was a waste of money etc.) so I cut her off."

43. He tried to get me into a threesome with his girlfriend—against her wishes.

"This happened fairly recently and he still tries to contact me like nothing’s wrong.

His girlfriend rings me up, asks if I’d be up for a threesome. Sure I say (major dry spell on my part and she’s cute as hell), just so long as you and he are 100% OK with the idea. No problem, they’ve spoke in detail about it I get told.

He starts organizing it like it's a staff meeting at work, even tried setting up for 10am on a Tuesday. Not a fucking chance. It doesn’t work like that surely, just get drunk one night and see if it happens right?

Few days later I get another call from his girlfriend, she’s freaked out by all this organizing he’s doing, I know the feeling and we talk for a while, right up until the point when she confines into me that she isn’t and never has been 100% consensual if this whole thing and that he’s forced her into this.

I’m sorry, what?

I flipped. Hard. This guys supposed to be my best friend and he nearly convinces me to have sex with a girl that ain’t fully committed, fully aware of the fact that she isn’t fully committed. In my eyes that’s just rape.

Haven’t spoken to him since."

44. She fell into the wrong crowd. I didn’t.

"We were best friends in school, but then something happened and we were sent into separate schools. She fell into the wrong crowd. I didn’t."

45. I was sick of having a one-sided relationship.

"I was sick of having a one-sided relationship with my best friend. She would call all the time to complain about her life (and get irate if I didn’t answer right away, even when I was tending to my sick child), but I wasn’t allowed to have any problems. On the few occasions I tried to talk to her about an issue I was having, she would ask me why I was complaining about anything, since my life was so “perfect” (never mind that the last time I tried to confide in her it was because my mom had had a heart attack… but nope, not allowed to complain)."

46. EVERY time he found out I was interested in a girl he would try to chat her up or sleep with her.

"EVERY time he found out I was interested in a girl he would try to chat her up or sleep with her, even if he’d previously said she wasn’t attractive before realizing I liked her. He did this at least six times."

47. I became a Buddhist and she became a fundamentalist Christian.

"I became a Buddhist and she became a fundamentalist Christian. I tried but soon realized keeping her at a distance was the healthiest and most compassionate thing I could do; eventually she realized I would not engage her when she started trying to convert me and talking badly about my spiritual choices and we just faded out. It something I feel sad about as we were very close friends."

48. She wrote a letter apologizing for all the 'sinning' she did in college.

"She wrote a letter apologizing for all the 'sinning' she did in college.

Drinking underage, having sex with guys at parties, her body piercings… etc.

I didn’t need a letter. She didn’t force me to have fun with her. I didn’t regret our college fun. Just seemed pretentious and waaaaaaay too far down the religious rabbit hole for me to continue."

49. I left the cult we were both in.

"He was my best man at my wedding, and I was at his. We no longer talk because I left the cult we were both in. I finally was able to break the chains of blind faith, but he was not. He was conditioned to think non-cult members are Satan's tools."

50. He convinced my girlfriend of two years to break up with me and date him.

"He convinced my girlfriend of two years to break up with me and date him. In the end he did me a favor but how can I trust him with anything after that?"

51. He became a huge pothead and I became a huge drunk.

"He became a huge pothead and I became a huge drunk. Kinda funny how those can separate us."

52. I got him a job, and he stole from the company.

"We’d been friends for 14 years. He was in a really tough place after breaking up with his then girlfriend. I was working a steady job and suggested we hire him. Everything was going really well. A few months pass and they train to become a bartender. A couple days after his training shifts they realize money went missing from the safe. (Only bartenders and managers know the combo) There was video proof of him going into the safe and stealing $100. He also lied to a coworker and got her to give him $50. I felt like absolute shit. Thought everyone at work hated me. I apologized to the girl he “borrowed” money from and my managers so many times. He didn’t reply to my texts for almost two weeks. When he finally did, his reply was “shut the fuck up. You know you can’t stay mad at me. We’ve been friends for too long. Shit happens. They’ll get over it” Spoken to him once since that conversation. He texts me but I don’t reply. Sucks but I can’t have someone like that in my life."

53. He became a right-wing evangelical Christian.

"He became a right-wing evangelical Christian. This was the guy that introduced me to George Carlin, The Beatles, Metallica, Weird Al and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was a gifted writer that focused on dark comedy and loved learning new things about the world. He was my best friend from the time I was 6 until we graduated college.

He grew up in a Southern Baptist church; after he got his masters he moved back home and became indoctrinated. Now he listens to Christian music only, believes the earth is 6000 years old, thinks gays are disgusting and that science is mostly wrong. It kills me to think about how much he has changed."

54. He wanted me to be jealous of him as if life was some kind of competition.

"Every time I’d talk to him he’d gloat about how awesome his life is and how much better he was doing than me.

It was pissing me off because I could tell he wanted me to be jealous of him as if life was some kind of competition.

My wife started to notice it too so she told me he wasn’t invited to our wedding. After I didn’t invite him we fell out and haven’t spoken since."
