The plot of The Box.
@Darth Sion, just about to say that.
@Darth Sion, speaking of which, Funny or Die did a hilarious parody of this called The Button. Take 2 minutes on YouTube to make your day.
@Darth Sion, And before that, it was originally a Twilight Zone episode... the more you know!
@Darth Sion, dude! Someone else that remembers that movie! I was like 8 when my parents rented it and let me watch it and Ive never met anyone who's remembered that movie!
How many times can I press the button?
@JDPhi, can I press it 7 times?
I need some advice people, I've liked this girl since sophomore year and I never thought I would be with her. Last week I asked her to homecoming and she said yes. Lately we have been hanging out and we did happen to kiss. She has told me that she had a miscarriage and she's the complete opposite of me but I can handle it and it has been working well. Before I was with her a kid before her got dumped from her but now thinks they are back together. I saw on her Facebook that she said she loved him and had a picture of them hugging. I don't know what to do because I have very strong feelings for this girl and she has feelings for me but this other kid helped her after her miscarriage so she has feelings for him. And I called her out on it and she is equally as upset as I am because she likes both of us. The other kid has no idea this is happening and at this point she's just cheating on him with me. Sorry for the long post but I need advice and I have no one to talk to. I'm 18 she's 17.
@Firesplinter57, tell her you're feelings. tell her you like her and you want to take care of her and tell her that you want to make her your whole world(girls love those kinds of talk). keep a close enough distance where you're able to tell what shes up to but dont be a damn stalker. prepare to have you're heart broken because you might be feeling that way thowrds her but she could have only kissed you because she felt that you were the only guy who understood her at that point.
@Firesplinter57, wow man. That's a hell of a story. I say with love, I think you may be out of your depth here. If she went back after you asked her out and kissed and rekindled that complicated mess with the other guy... you may have been dealt one life's unlucky hands. You should probably just get out. If somebody really wants you, you won't be able to stop them. Adulthood sucks man, but the reality of it is that sometimes the situations make a potentially great (even perfect) relationship impossible. And I'm speaking from experience. Life doesn't make sense sometimes. Sorry. I from experience it's not the answer you wanted.
@Firesplinter57, dude... Figure out what you want firstly is this someone you could potentially spend your life with and second make sure she knows that the other dude needs to be made known about you and her
@Firesplinter57, oh and texting. the best way to win someone over time but again dont blow up her phone. text her and if she dosnt text back then just wait.
@Firesplinter57, also as just more detail that might help, I have completely dumped my feelings towards her and she knows how much I care about her and she has dumped her feelings to me and she hasn't been intimate with anyone else besides me since the kid that got her pregnant and I'm the only one she feels safe kissing and she can't even kiss this other guy.
@Firesplinter57, In my opinion, dude, this is a very unhealthy situation for both of you. She sounds like she just likes the attention and won't commit to either of you. She's playing you. The emotional damage from the miscarriage (and who knows what else from her childhood) is affecting her decisions and you have to move on.
You can trust me. I'm 26, getting married to a wonderful committed woman, and I have a degree in counseling. :)
@Firesplinter57, you're too young for this drama. I obviously don't know her or her life but it sounds like she's playing both of you to me. I could be wrong but if you have to pursue your feelings, do so with caution
@Rocker4JC, sorry for dumping my problems but I don't have any friends to talk to. Now I understand that it would be the best bet to let this girl just be with the kid but I have a need to take care for her that I can't overcome. And she knows this about me. She's had boyfriends that physically abused her too and the kid that got her pregnant literally laughed in her face when she told him in person that their son died. Literally anything will help if you can. Thanks
@Firesplinter57, y'all quit tellin him this lovey dovey bullshjt. It's just a load of crap. This is the unhealthiest story ever. Leave that alone and leave it behind you. College and life after is full of new girls and new people that you can enjoy. Don't miss out on that joy because you got stuck on some chick that was never good for you. Get out there. Go have fun. Nothing's stopping you. You have a hell of a lot of time before you need to worry about "true love." I would know from experience. Then I went through the rest of college, had fun, graduated, got a adult job, fell in love, and now I've married the greatest woman in the world and we are working on our first kiddo. All that because I got out of a unhealthy relationship at the right time. So trust me. Just get out.
@Firesplinter57, This is a one way relationship. You keep giving and giving without seeing results. You can't help someone who won't help themselves. You'll pour your soul into this and get no results. The only person you can change is yourself, bud. Be a better man and find someone who will put as much effort into a relationship as you do.
@Rocker4JC, ^ what this dude said
@Rocker4JC, @krumchris, and everyone else thanks for this. I'll do the best I can to fix this, but if I can see what you guys are saying even after I try to fix it I'll just drop it and move on. I appreciate all of you!
@Firesplinter57, this whole situation sounds eerily familiar. You wouldn't happen to be in Idaho eh?
@Firesplinter57, walk away
@Firesplinter57, dude. I have literally been in a very similar situation. I...
Hmm. I don't even really know what to say but I will try.
Nobody is in the wrong here. You can't really choose what you feel, or choose how those emotions effect you. Try to remember that. The best thing. Really. Is for her to make a choice. It may sound a bit harsh. But being stuck in an emotional uncertainty is worse for everybody. I'm not saying it Should be you.
I'm not saying it should be him.
Its should be what she thinks will make her happy.
Just because you're there for her now doesn't mean she should stick with you. But just because he was there for her before doesn't give him seniority or anything like that.
I sincerely believe that People come and go out of others lives as they are needed. To teach both people a little bit about life. Whether that's you now. Or it was him when he was helping her through her miscarriage. I'm not sure. In your defense I don't believe in back peddling.
@Titaintium, trying to go back and make something that didn't work, work. Life's about moving forward and sometimes a situation that ends badly needs to be used to gain perspective, instead of trying to get fixed.
I guess what I'm trying to say is if she goes to him. That's okay. Use the experience to learn. About yourself and other people and life. It will hurt. But if she's happy then it won't really be the wrong choice for her will it? And if she sticks with you, FANTASTIC! you get to to try and be something special to her and make her, and yourself, happy. The only right answer is the one that moves your life forward. And sitting in indecision takes you nowhere. Tell her how you feel about here and how much you care and everything you want to tell her and hope for the best. But don't beat yourself up or blame anybody if it doesn't go the way you hope. Sometimes the things we need are taught to us by failing to get the things we want.
@Firesplinter57, I'm going to echo what most everyone here has been saying, but I'll add that I was in a situation similar to yours. A girl who couldn't decide, who never said "yes" or "no" but always "maybe." She broke up with her old bf, I asked her out, and she was excited but gave no definite answer. I thought "she didn't say no, so that's good," but the next day she was on FB posting love songs to her ex. In the end, through strange twists and turns, I ended up helping her get back together with a guy who was wrong for her (and long distance). Then she went through a period of breaking up with him and getting back together rapidly over a few days. I was a sensitive person who didn't know how to emotionally regulate myself, nor did I know how dysfunctional it all was. I was a junior in high school. That experience destroyed a part of myself that I never really got back. She may seem like all things wonderful, but there is someone better for you. I promise.
@Firesplinter57, miscarriage this young? Sheesh.
@Firesplinter57, I know you like her bro, but if she's cheating on a guy with you, then there's no telling what she'll do to you if you two get together. I was in the same situation, loved the girl to death, in the end I decided it was best to let her go.
@Firesplinter57, love is bullshjt and not worth it...dump her. Getting rid of her will hurt alot less than her getting rid of you
@2HornyUnicorns, never thought I'd take love advice from someone named 2hornyunicorns
@Firesplinter57, I went through something similar when I was a little bit younger than you... It probably won't end well for you. With me the chick liked me more but her mom pushed her towards the other kid because of her own personal gains(another entirely different story). If I were you I would abandon ship. Will suck at first but you'll save yourself from worse things down the road
@Azula always lies, you have earn a upvote...i hardly ever up vote. Feel special
@Firesplinter57, then talk to her not random people on the Internet. It's like searching webmd vs talking to a doctor. You're going to get vague advice that's useful but may not be the information you need. Ps seriously move on she sounds like way more trouble than she's worth
@George Feeny, than*
@Firesplinter57, tell her your true feelings. Don't push her. She will pick the one she loves but just support her. You seem like an awesome guy so don't worry about it
@Firesplinter57, it sounds like she's using both of you to me, she probably is just taking attention from anyone that will give it to help her through her miscarriage. But if she really wants to be with you, then she will get rid of the other guy.
@Firesplinter57, I was looking at this again today I though to add that no matter what you think, chances are you don't love her. I'm not sure if you've said you did or not in the thread. I was convinced I was in love when I was 16-17, but it was a really emotionally abusive relationship for me. I moved on and am much happier for it now even though it hurt a lot at first
@Firesplinter57, hey, I know it's been days since you've posted this comment, but I just found this post and read through the replies. I thank you for sharing your story, and to all those who helped you in this time of need. I'm not gonna give you any advice or nothing, but Ima jus go ahead and say it, I'm 18, and I've never been in a relationship. Now I'm in college and I met an extremely cute girl, quiet as a mouse. The first time I came up to talk to her, she looked frightened. Her head creaked slowly to look at me and spoke in the lowest voice imaginable(she was like the Asian girl from Pitch Perfect). But through her anxiety and my own, I made the effort to talk to her, and she's actually a pretty cool person, still pretty shut in but beginning to open up to me. I'm aiming to hopefully bring her out of her shell and try to start a relationship with her. I'm glad I found someone who is like that, because to me, shut in people are the most beautiful of all.
@Firesplinter57, I e been a quiet guy all throughout my life, and have only really talked to other quiet people. And I love them, all of my friends that are like me. Because it's those people who I'm able to connect with in the closest ways. Where we don't care about another's outside opinion, we just care about our our. Those kind of people open up to other close minded people and don't end up with too many outside problems. The girl I met seems to be the same way, i just hope I'm able to open up to her enough. I just felt that if you can share your story, I can share mine. I hope everything goes well for you, and maybe even wish me luck on my crush.
@Firesplinter57, so I'm browsing random about a year after you wrote this and got super invested. I sincerely hope you're still on funny pics because I would love to get an update? How did it all turn out? I'm sorry you had such an unfortunate experience and I truly hope it's all better.
It's like a Christmas tree!
You might be a sociopath...
So....you're a hit man...?
Whoever says yes to this do you really value a human life at $200000
@Tomper, yes, I value people very low, I would kill a man for $5000
@Master Terra, the twist: it kills people close to you, making you ask 'did you actually know them?'
@Cloverleaf, the clarity is uncertain, it can go either way
@Master Terra, ah. But imagine you press it, thinking you're just ending some poor schmuck in Africa or something. Your best friend drops dead instead.
@Cloverleaf, I would be devastated, but nobody would know I had the button, I will regret maybe, but I would get over it, if it was my mother, different story
I actually don't think I would do that. I mean... Come on... Don't be a djck...
This where philosophy is needed
@Colonel Krusty , yeah. The question you have to ask. How well do you know the people close to you?
If I didn't know the person I guess I might... But if the person it kills could be anyone I wouldn't do it
Yes I would absolutely press it and then call up Satan to get my room ready
No, H3LL NO
I guess if you press it twice it nullifies everything, right?
