Bob-omb, not really one of those big fluffy one's no... kind of like this one here
Terra_Valentine, it is frustrating when people at work speak a language you don't understand, I have a few Spanish speaking colleagues and sometimes it's a bit of a shame I can't participate when they speak their language. Good luck in your relationship!
I really hope that your life will go better from now on, and if you need friends, I'm always willing to listen to your problems and I'm sure there's many people here on Shuushuu who feel the same way.
Ditto! Always here for you Valea with an ear that'll listen.
Though it is a sad story, I can only hope you will be able to overcome it and grow to be a stronger person because of it. Alcohol and alcoholism is terrible, it destroys lives... which is one of the reasons I never drink any alchohol. (And my personal encounters with alcoholism aren't as traumatic as yours by a longshot).
Equally as tragic may be how your best friend reacted... while I can't really say since I don't know all the details (don't need to know or pry about them either) it's not a sign your friend was really a good friend or person if she dropped you like a brick because she didn't reciprocate the same feelings. I'd like to think I wouldn't drop a friendship because of that.
And even I've you've had such experience, not all men are evil you know, the same is true for men who've had nothing but bad experience with women *cough*like me*cough* it doesn't mean all women are evil. I try not to generaliz even though it's easily done.
(Although in fact all people tend to do it since it is a method used by our brains to make everything more digestible, by making general categories in which it can place everything/everyone.)
