Yeah, nothing out of the ordinary at all, really.
Sorry to hear that. I was never raised in a drinking/smoking environment, so I hardly had any compulsion to do so myself. I guess you're opposite. You've been around it, so you don't want to do it after seeing the side-effects. Is your brother clean now?
It won't. Life is great, with only a few depressing speed bumps along the way.

That's true. Well, I guess I'm not a TOTAL recluse. (And apparently even less so once I started dating him . . . hmm . . . let's see where it takes me, if I must.) No, not too out of the ordinary. Happens all the time, and I've heard worse. (Especially considering she's my step-sister, not biological. I just call her my sister because we were raised together.)
It's funny, because I was raised around smokers and drinkers, and my brother has been sent to jail many times since thirteen, mainly because of alchohol. I swear, he's spent at least a third of his life in prison/the likes. ._.
Yeah. Aaaaah, I just hope life doesn't lead me down a depressing path. If it does, though, I can manage. d:

But you still met him, that is the key. A total recluse wouldn't meet or date anybody! I could see how that would be awkward, however, being that he dated your sister before you. Nothing out of the ordinary though.
I don't smoke or do drugs either. I never got the allure that people felt towards them. I do have the occasional drink, but I've never once been drunk. I don't get the appeal.
This stuff is always confusing. Just don't rush anything and see where life takes you.

. . . Well, actually I met him through my sister, because she went to school with him and . . . dated him for, like, two months last year before she decided she hated his guts. She happened to be his first, so. . . . That's even more awkward, but at the same time it's not. I suppose it is if you think about it too much. :| (I've dated him for twice as long, so take that! . . . Not sure if that's to be celebrated?)
Even if I were old enough, I would not drink. Or smoke. Or do drugs. I'm not even sure I would like to take a few sips of wine, but I've been told that I'd probably have to, lol xD
Well, I was just on the phone with him again for about two hours or so . . . feh, it's so confusing in the long run. Fingers crossed, though.

Hey, you got out enough to meet and date this guy! So obviously, you're not a -major- recluse. The secret is, we are all awkward and insecure.
Haha, I'm weird too and I don't hide it! xD Power to you sister!
Aww, okay. Well I would say drink, but that might not apply in your situation either. (Just kidding, that doesn't work)
January 28th, 2013 3:25 PMNakuzami
Yeah, but I'm a major recluse and never get out anywhere. .w. I mean, I could try now, but . . . I'm rather awkward most of the time. :|
And I say I'm weird! xD I like being weird. It's just difficult to find people that I like, like me, and happen to complement my version of weirdness. xD
. . . I would do that, but I'm not a big fan of most chocolates. I seem to like white chocolate (and chocolate with flavors in it, lol) but . . . I don't have money to go out and buy any right now. ;w;

You don't know anybody -yet-. There is a lid to every pot, as the saying goes. Look at PC as a whole. We are all a bit weird. Surely there must be guys out there that match you. Not here maybe, but in the world in general. Besides, who says you're weird?
Also, when in doubt, eat chocolate. It might sound cliche, but it makes you feel better. :3

I know. I've talked to some people, like Michaela(TheUchiha) . . . but one other thing that sucks is I don't know anybody else with a personality like his that's as weird as mine and is . . . I don't know . . . good? Caring? It's soooo bad, lol.
*hugs back* Thanks.
January 28th, 2013 2:56 PMClaire*
Well, as much as it hurts now, just remember it gets better. Everyday will be better than the last. I know nothing anyone says can make it sting less, but it always helps to talk it out. Don't afraid to reach out to someone and let them know how you're feeling. Parents, friends, anyone will work. If he doesn't come back, he simply wasn't the right guy for you.
*hugs* I'm so sorry.
January 28th, 2013 2:52 PMNakuzami
Yeah, I know. I do hope that he changes his mind, but I don't want him to if he doesn't like me anymore . . . it's so . . . annoying. :/
January 28th, 2013 2:47 PMClaire*
Six hours, wow. That was a long conversation indeed. Maybe he's just trying to work some stuff out in his own head. Sometimes people just lose sight of what they really want. Maybe he'll change his mind, maybe not.
Is this your first breakup?
January 28th, 2013 2:34 PMNakuzami
Should have figured as much, lol. And yes, it was a very long conversation. It was actually the next day, because the day he broke up with me his family ended up hanging around and they didn't actually know about us . . . and the next day I was at his house for . . . six hours, I think.
There was a lot of crying, and not all of it was me. @_@ I . . . don't quite know how to explain it, lol. It was long and complicated.
January 28th, 2013 2:26 PMClaire*
Haha, I was teasing. I was hoping to distract you for a second. A loooooooooong conversation, eh? Again, been there...
January 28th, 2013 2:20 PMNakuzami
No, doing that seems a bit . . . shallow. @_@ I don't think I want to try and force him back into a relationship, lol . . . if he wants to, then he wants to. But I really doubt he does, because we had a loooooooong conversation. ._.
Again, thank you for the furry wonder known as a kitty. xD

*sigh* I've been there. The dreaded friend-zone. I discovered recently that it is a fickle mistress. I learned that if I've friend-zoned people, they can do so in return. I hope things work out for the best, whatever that may be. You could always go out and get somebody new to parade in front of him, if it isn't still too raw. He might start to rethink that friend-zone status then.
It is a cute kitty. You're most welcome. :D
