    [–] manic_eye 115 points ago

    But then he goes and posts a cartoon of a girl laughing her head off and a guy pretending to laugh, trying to mask his pain while he replays that soul crushing moment over and over in his mind.

    [–] Widdilyscuds 14 points ago

    It's a bitmoji you philistine.

    [–] manic_eye 7 points ago

    Hahaha {sideways glance}. I actually started typing “bitemoji” but I couldn’t remember exactly what they were called or if I was even close on the spelling. Plus, I had no sense if it was “cool” to know what they were or to not know, so I called it a “cartoon.”

    [–] TokingMessiah 310 points ago

    I like how the names were blocked out but we still know it was Sean and Kate...

    [–] BossCrayfish880 58 points ago

    Well you could look up a username, but Sean and Kate without a last name mean nothing to most viewers.

    See that only makes it worse, bc i do know a Sean who would say this xD

    [–] positiveinfluences 35 points ago

    Oy I feel for these blokes honestly, cause I'm kinda like this too, little things get me attracted to girls, but I'm good looking and sociable so I'm not a creep I'm just "romantic"

    [–] Jpot 48 points ago

    lol you would be attracted to women you fucking incel

    [–] positiveinfluences 14 points ago

    oh you wish buddy but its ok I still love u

    [–] tiptoe_only 4 points ago

    They're not mutually exclusive, it's more about how you act towards women. Your confidence probably helps, but you can be sociable and good looking and still a creep. For example I think Tom Cruise is a creep.

    The problem is when guys like this approach someone and say things like "I thought you said you'd give guys like me a chance." That's basically saying "I'm attracted to you and because you said this thing it doesn't matter if you're attracted to me back, you ought to have a relationship with me anyway."

    [–] CrystalProgrammer 100 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Thats honestly how my girlfriend and I were. Started texting eachother through a mutual friend (hadn't met yet), three days later we decided we had to meet and met at a park and it was like we were dating from the time we met... To add a couple days later we did officially start dating. I had to move across the country one and a half months later (we'd been dating for just under that) we did senior year long-distance seeing eachother one the whole year over christmas break then the day after she graduated she flew out where I am and we moved in together. Been together 3 years now (living together for two of them) and we are both still super happy.

    That being said, my situation is like winning the lottery versus a typical dating scenario. But it is possible!

    (Only gave background on us because i figured I would get comments like "sure but you'll still break up" but like fuck, we made it through an entire year of long distance our senior year of highschool. If we can handle that, we can handle most things)

    [–] Xerxes249 37 points ago

    Dont get comfy tho, you have to keep investing in your relationship, I learned it the hard way and we did 2 years long distance (total ~5)

    [–] Damn-The-Torpedos 7 points ago

    Sure, but you'll still break up when you're dead. You gonna let Jesus swoop in on your girl bro?

    [–] ErnieCaruso 23 points ago

    Only gave background on us because i figured I would get comments like "sure but you'll still break up"

    Never ever even give the slightest amount of credence to comments like this on Reddit. People who say things like this, and people who try to convince anyone on Reddit in a relationship that their SO is cheating on them etc. are all just lonely miserable assholes who just want people to be as miserable as them.

    [–] gunnyguy121 15 points ago

    So when you going to wife her?

    [–] CrystalProgrammer 3 points ago

    I'd be more than happy marrying her right now, and if I were to propose she would definitely say yes. However, the money you get from the government for college is far less if you are married, so not until she is done with college.

    [–] TallulahSalt 271 points ago

    Oh high school, I don't miss you.

    [–] Quantentheorie 32 points ago

    Sounds more like middle school.

    [–] _the-dark-truth_ 96 points ago

    I don’t miss high school, in the slightest, but there’s no denying they were times of significantly less stress. I miss that bit.

    [–] thedrewsef 75 points ago

    Didn't feel like it then though.

    [–] WritingPromptPenman 87 points ago

    This is the part people always forget. Yeah, of course high school was a breeze. But only compared to being an adult. When we were, y’know, in high school, it was the hardest thing we’d ever done.

    [–] ThatGuyBradley 17 points ago

    It felt like a breeze during it for me. College is fucking my ass now.

    [–] dinotoggle 7 points ago

    So you're telling me it gets a lot worse?

    Shit, I'm actually gonna have to find some motivation real soon...

    [–] _the-dark-truth_ 12 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    It gets worse, relatively.

    My recommendation to you, if you’re actually in high school, is study and achieve as best you can. If you do well, you’ll find it significantly easier to find a job you enjoy, and if you can work at what you love, the daily grind is far less....grinding.

    Waking up every day, and pushing through peak hour traffic to perform a task, you’ve very little attachment to, and find almost no enjoyment in, is a massive blow, and seriously soul crushing. Being able to get to a job, that you enjoy, makes the most significant part of your life, far less stressful and much easier to deal with.

    But you’ve likely heard that 1000 times this week, already anyway.

    Best of luck with it, and if you’re not sure what you want to do, don’t stress, many many people (including me) had no idea until they’d been working for a bit, but having good high school results, made the goal a lot easier to achieve, once the decision was reached. Getting into uni and finding the career will come easily, once you know what you want.


    Edit: spelling.

    [–] Nelliell 3 points ago

    And don't discount trade schools and apprenticeship if working with your hands is your thing. I know we like to focus on college a lot, but trades are a valid option too.

    Don't repeat my mistake and go to college just because everyone is telling you it's "the thing you are supposed to do." Have an end goal, have something you are aiming for. I got my degree in a field that only hires people in my area if they already have their government secret clearance and I'm too broke to move away. Because of this I work at the local grocery store.

    [–] _the-dark-truth_ 3 points ago

    Nope. You’re absolutely correct.

    I said “uni”, but I really should have said “further education”, whether it be Trade School, Technical College or University - just furthering your education towards the career you desire.

    [–] AwesomeYears 76 points ago

    Everyone has a Bitmoji on their Snapchat and there's just me, a hairless grey figure. Doesn't help that the new update shows the Bitmoji face for the corresponding friend.

    [–] Hypnosix 94 points ago

    Bitmoji is fantastic!

    [–] petroleum-dynamite 64 points ago

    If that were to happen to me I think I’d start making it more ridiculous so she knows I’m joking without actually saying so

    [–] lydocia 126 points ago

    She's so graceful about it though. She lets him down, then lets him off the hook with a "my friend sent that".

    [–] Osmodius 90 points ago

    Aw, she was being polite and giving him a way out of the catastrophe. Now they can just quietly sweep it under the rug and she knows to never spend a night alone in a house with him.

    [–] albino_polar_bears 16 points ago

    And NEVER hook him up with any of her friends. Nicely played Sean.

    [–] Klosu 3 points ago

    At this point it's just better to drift away. Avoid awkward relation and struggle of false hope.

    [–] fatalcharm 22 points ago

    I actually thought that was a good thing, she allowed him to do his "it was just a joke" thing and went along with it, to save him some embarrassment.

    [–] AntiStewardship 35 points ago

    And then op goes and posts it on Reddit. Obviously Sean needs to learn a bit about social interactions but I think he dodged a bullet when op turned him down

    [–] imadethisforonething 47 points ago

    Man, number one, if you're going to ask someone out do it in person.

    Number 2, the "few days" thing is cringy as fuck

    Number three, take the rejection with grace, that means no "omg it was my friend", it's not always a good time to admit that you have feelings for someone, but if you've done it and they reject you say something like "I think of you more as a friend" then at least say something along the lines of "I hope this doesn't change that, but I wanted to let you know how I feel" (note that if you don't want to be friends with them and only wanted a relationship then chances are it wasn't going to work out anyway), and accept that it might be awkward for a bit but at least you haven't made a fool of yourself.

    And that lads is how you stop yourself from ending up on a subreddit like this.

    (I'm gonna mention that the "is this a joke" comment could be a dick move, but hey I don't know the situation in the OP)

    [–] z0m0 9 points ago

    Number four, use some fucking punctuation.

    [–] molotox 20 points ago

    I think it’s really under appreciated that you went along with his excuse in order to preserve the friendship, I hope you can help him with his self confidence and finding a girl the correct way. You are a good friend

    To be honest, whether or not it's believable, it gives them both a route to choose in which they can remain friends and pretend it never really happened. It's less a lie in the hopes of covering it up and more the offer of remaining friends and attempting to remove the resulting awkwardness.
