    I've been following the "big loss" thread, and feeling pretty bad for cygnus2112. It made me think of some of the dumb and humiliating shit I've done to try to win back someone who moved on.

    I put together a fucking video montage (like Howard's boys of summer one) of all the fucking love letters we exchanged, pictures of tickets to shows we saw together, etc. I set it to the music of fucking Kelly Clarkson (You Found Me), and I god damn sent my fucking ex the link.

    I regretted it immediately. I wasn't able to delete the montage of shit in time...and she saw it. She never said anything to me about it, but I saw that one fucking viewer on Youtube and knew it was her. To this day, whenever I hear any Kelly Clarkson song I want to run into traffic to save myself from the waves of shame that will wash over me.

    The worst part was I did this shit in my fucking 30's.

    I went and cried on an Internet message board and then showed it to her to prove how manly i am and how she should want me back.

    Took her to see Neil Sedaka. Concert sucked balls, and this college student was out a sizable amount (for that time) of $$.

    @FosterKitten, since you're liking all these, are you commiserating or just laughing at all of us? ;)

    Just thinking that I am sure I did some stupid things years ago. I can't remember what they were but I know I had to have done something stupid.

    I wrote and recorded a song for her and sent her the CD as a Xmas gift along with a card. She was already fucking another guy by then.

    <------ pathetic

    I don't think I ever tried to get someone back when they dumped me. I always figured if I got them back, they would dump me again. Better to get your heart broken only once.

    Nothing specific, just general faggotry like paying bills for her, helping with resume, helping her with work, and believing she wasn't banging other dudes. I even took her to see Jackie! We left at halftime. Worst show ever.

    I've only been dumped once. It sucked, but I didn't do anything at all to try to get him back. Years later, we're actually friends now.

    Would I have described it in the way I did if it had? No. She was schtupping the HS boyfriend back home, and the time had come to dump the college playtoy. In retrospect, I'm glad my pitiful ministrations didn't work.
