Girls are such bitches that odds are even if Geddy was like "let's go back to the hotel room" FG would have just been like "omg lol you have the wrong idea FRIEND!"

Girls learn how to play men and break hearts from the day they are born. Not a real good woman with a warm heart exists in this world.

No, not the PG-13 ending where Geddy gains greater perspective on life and moves on from this experience a wiser man and you walk out of the theater like "what a letdown", those movies are ****ing cockteases. We need the R-rated Geddy, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man. You're a bad man, Mikey. You're a bad man, bad man.

You have the wrong kind of movie in mind. **** that "gains a greater perspective on life" ****. Geddy just knocked out Ivan Drago. He used the crane to take down the Cobra Kai douche and win the tournament.

edit: Just made the penalty shot to beat the Hawks!

All those saying he made the right choice must be young.

I'm the absolute last one to support the male/macho hit it bull**** that permeates most online forums. And I think he shouldn't have passed. He might be happy now, especially with how things turned out with the other girl. (Did you think about her 1 time that night before the text?)
See how GL feels when he's 40.

Being results-oriented down the road doesn't mean he made the wrong choice now though.

That night specifically, no. This last week, before the texts in question? Definitely. Was talking with her as recently as Thursday; we had plans to do dinner in Toronto but I got called in to work a shift and couldn't get out there.

And maybe the Oshawa Princess doesn't become Mrs. Geddy Lee, but I dunno what else to say other than I'm in a really good place right now.

By the way, I love the divided opinions. I think it's great.

FG is not an opponent, she is a smoking hot hockey lover who could have given GL a night he'd remember for the rest of his life before she went off to wherever the hell she's going that GL isn't ever gonna see her again. It's one thing if Geddy's not attracted to her, but...

Sooooo that means you shouldn't bang "a smokeshow" who "looks incredible"...why?!?!?

Disagree. "The night he turned down FG" is not gonna be something that persists for years when he thinks of the all-time greatest nights of his life.

Like, wtf does this mean? How do you square this with your multiple comments on how hot she looked? I don't think she looks that hot to you if you didn't really want it, and thus there's other stuff going into your reasoning here that you aren't telling us or that maybe you aren't even consciously aware of.

Geddy scooped me, this is the sort of thing I was thinking of:

You're stuck on level 1.

He's being dishonest with himself at that point. He'd resigned himself to not wanting a future with FG, being completely over her after
Quote:
The devastation I felt when she'd leave me stranded. The anger I felt when she'd ignore me until she needed a favour. The disappointment I felt when I upset her. The trepidation I felt when we finally put everything on the table last year...and the resulting heartbreak I felt when she made it abruptly clear we were nothing more than friends, unlikely to ever change.
That's not an easy thing to put behind you, and he'd done it. If he sleeps with her, he's reopening that entire can of worms just to see her up and move away forever. It's easy to say blah blah blah, you know this was a one time thing, no attachment, blah blah, but in reality this isn't how it works. Try it.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

If it's like, maybe you're still emotionally confused, you think it might actually hurt to finally hook up with FG only for her to leave your life forever, that's something that totally makes sense. But I think it's weird that you would otherwise have a fantastic time hanging with her all night despite this history, think she's totally looking smoking, and then feel good about turning down a chance to hit that.

This is all getting too cathartic.
Glad GL is happy with his decision.

There is a memorable post in another thread with a very similar story, and the regrets associated. But I don't remember the poster or the thread. Sucks being old.

Ok, so we basically just agreed with each other, but if that's the case that's not what Geddy represented to us - he was like "I'm over her", when really if he was completely over her banging her would have been no prob and left no strings attached and been a great night. It's if he isn't really over her that complications arise.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

All right, I've been catching up on this thread, and apparently you guys has spent the last 100 some posts or something on this story and its quite interesting. Geddy, you probably got to think really really deep whether or not to go through with this thing you have with this girl. The general consensus is that you blow it, but at the end of the day, you got to go through with your decision and if you feel like this decision is the best long-term, then well-done man, hope you become happy with this decision for years to come.

Imagine if your ability to remember old posts was as efficient as your ability to remember girls you wish you had slept with!
