I can call you a nonsensical, empty-headed, foolish, arrogant machine.
I can call you a stupid, unwise creature whose sense is no more than the sound of a winter wind in a hollow tree.
I cannot say that you are viler than the vilest beggar who ever crawled the gutters of the lowest street in creation, because even such a creature is better than you.
I cannot even say that you fucked your mother, because she has no time to fuck you between so many others.
But you will command me nothing. I have not come across all the miles and all the years to listen to your childish prating.
So I've been talking to this girl recently. We haven't officially met in person, but we've been talking on facebook, skype, texts, etc for a while now. We're supposed to be going to a party together tonight. I think I'm actually starting to, as the kids say, "like" this girl. And, for some reason, that bothers the fuck out of me. My life is busy and complicated enough as it is. Bringing a girl in at this point in my life would just put my mind in a total state of disarray.These "feelings" are unwelcome, dammit. It seems like one part of me is saying "You like this girl, make a move", and the other part is saying "Woah, where the fuck did all this come from? I don't have time this!"
I need some advice... not for me this time. At least... not directly.
I have a friend that's in an abusive relationship. But she doesn't seem to realize it. I've heard people say some things about her boyfriend that are not very good at all... about the types of things that he does, the kind of person he is. And I've seen dents in her car... dents shaped like fists, like shoes, as though they've been in arguments and he has taken it out on her car while she hides in it. She doesn't seem to care... no doubt, like many girls, she is of the "It's my fault. It will get better. He still loves me." opinion.
How can I talk to her about this? Or should I stay out of it?
Unfortunately in situations like this, there are only two options: stay out of it, or call the cops. OF course you're only resorting to the latter if you think her life is seriously in danger. It's usually best not to go butting in situations like this, because apart from not knowing the guy well, you don't know how your friend will react either. Have you talked to her about any of this?
