Oh man, if my most recent ex (March) knew that I was hanging out with JHK, she'd track us both down and murder us, hahaha. That's HER style.

Dang, dude. I don't know how you have energy for that sort of biz.

Ain't nobody got time for drama like that.

He's doing it Kdrama style. That's how it's done here.

All he's missing now is the overbearing, batshit-crazy mother.

Ain't no drama. Recent ex thinks I cheated on her when we were dating (which I can assure you, I did not) so she wants absolutely nothing to do with me and she's basically disappeared from my friend's group back into her Korean friend's group. A couple of my mates text her once in a while to see how she's doing, but she's fading pretty damn quickly from my life............... ................... ......

Until 2021, when it all comes back round again!!! hahahahahahahaha

I'm siding more with Kobayashi on this one.  She seems to be playing the field, so why is she doing online dating and chatting with your friends if she has another boyfriend.  She's playing the field, and doesn't really seem to be that bothered about the consequences or anyone's feelings, especially yours. 

Y'all are going to think I'm delusional, but I do know more about this situation than y'all, even if I can recognise my own biases.

Regarding the tinder thing, Donald (shit, I put his real name in there and had to fix it to Donald again hahaha) had mentioned that she was being flaky as shit and I learned later she was only on for 5 days. She had her gay friend texting the guys for a laugh. This isn't to take away from the fact that seeing her surprised me quite a bit.

Regarding her talking to my friends, her boyfriend in Japan is these guys best mate. (Sam R's group that I've been gravitating towards)  She's not going around behind his back with all these men, they're all supertight friends for the last couple of years), he's in Japan, that's it. If anything, they'll be judging her if she starts getting messy with some guys at the bar.

I have no idea if she's playing the field, I don't. But the assumptions made by you (I'm not angry haha but they are assumptions) don't hold a lot of weight.

I think it's far from necessary to be friends with her, nor would I even say you have to be friendly to her (distantly polite is good), but I do think that some exposure to her presence might help in the long run on the path to healing.  Get desensitized, in a way.

Rather than being surprised and jarred and flooded with emotions when she randomly pops up in person, which seems to be quite a likely thing given the overlapping friend circles.

Yeah, I emailed her this morning and said I wasn't the nicest person for being a cold, distant guy on Saturday, it's just I'd made the effort not to see her and it failed. I just told her we need to sort this out. God only knows what that means, but we'll figure it out or we won't.

Thanks to everyone for their input, even Kobayashi, lord knows I've felt like that on numerous occasions.

The bullying here makes me so angry. I do my  best to shut it down whenever I see it, and it's so frustrating how many teachers let it slide. We were doing a project in 5th grade, and we let the students pick their groups, and one boy was left over. He's very slow, but he's nice & tries hard. He gets picked on quite a bit, and during sports day the whole class blamed him for making them lose jump rope, even though it wasn't his fault.

My coteacher initially wanted to bribe a group into taking him, but I told her we shouldn't reward them for being decent human beings. The kids ended up doing RPS to see who got him, and the kids who didn't have to have him in their group scream-cheered. (Another rant: Why can't these kids breathe without screaming?) I got really angry at them for celebrating, and told them that they were bullies. I rarely get visibly angry in class, so they were pretty shocked. My coteacher was angry too, and translated what I said then got after them herself. One girl cried and another girl apologized later in class. The kids aren't going to get to choose their own groups anymore.

Another rant: Today we had a fire drill. It wasn't planned, so the kids and teachers didn't know about it. I'm not sure if it was just an accident or what, but anyway it went off at the end of  a 5th grade class. Some of the kids started running around the class like a chicken with its head cut off until my co ordered them back into their seats. She tried to call around to see if it was a real drill or not, but no one was picking up.

So we have the students get up and leave the room, and when we walked into the hallway the big heavy metal doors had automatically closed. We're the only classroom on that side of the school, and the door going to the stairwell and to the other side of the school had shut. The kids started freaking out thinking that we were trapped, but all they needed was a good shove. They calmed down and we lined up outside where everything ends up being fine. Moral of the rant is they need more unplanned drills so the kids don't lose it when they hear the alarm.

I swear, everyone at my main school LOVES to stand behind me. Last year, my desk was one window over and that was the window everyone loved to open and pour their drinks out at.

Now, they love to pour their drinks out and stare outside through the window directly behind me. I absolutely HATE having people standing behind me when I'm on a computer. It always feels invasive.

Right, since last Thursday, it has that walk outside and sweatsville starts, kind of feel.  Cue damp pillows in the early morning.

Yup. I constantly feel damp. Pillows feel damp, walls feel damp, everything is damp, and My hair is giant, I mean some kind of wookie thing going on here with my hair. Every year, I think, I will adjust. This is a lie.

I have no idea if she's playing the field, I don't. But the assumptions made by you (I'm not angry haha but they are assumptions) don't hold a lot of weight.

so i might have missed a few posts here, but this girl was also on tinder chatting to people? so to summarize:

she gave you an ultimatum after you had a serious head injury and almost died.

broke up with you at the airport, after flying half way around the world to see her.

has a boyfriend overseas, and yet goes on tinder for .... shits and giggles?

gets her gay friend to mess guys on tinder around for shits and giggles.

dude, seriously, this is not the type of person i would want to associate with at all. even if there wasn't history between you. it sounds like you actually dodged a bullet when she broke up with you.

she keeps asking about you because you're being aloof and distant, and not talking to her is getting the little hamster wheel turning. "why doesn't CO2 want to talk to me, doesn't he like me anymore? does he think i'm a bad person?" and blah blah.

she wants to talk to you to get validation that you still like her. she wants to talk to you for HER, not for you.

Yeah, I've mulled this over, too. I'll give you points for this one.

She does seem a little selfish. I can't really wrap my head around the whole breaking up at the airport thing, why did she wait? She should have broken up with you beforehand like any decent person would do. She sounds like romcom villain to be honest.

...


So her life could be a Korean drama?

People rave about Skyscanner, but Ive never had any luck with it. Ill find a flight for a reasonable amount, click to go to that website, and it will say something like In the 5 seconds since you clicked on that link that flight is no longer available. But here are some other flights for $500 more, sucker.

For the most part, all the big flight aggregators are similar. I like how Hipmunk lays out out. Skyscanner is kind of disappointing to me. Actually, I use Expedia a lot, too. And when I'm travelling domestically in SE Asian countries, I just use the local LCC websites, which is by far the cheapest option.

I just use expedia or google flights and then check around on the individual airline websites. I tried using something like Skyscanner before but it would show prices before factoring tax and fuel surcharges and whatever else, which was not to my liking.

Skyscanner is rubbish.  This summer, I was wanting to go to Berlin, and then fly back from Manchester to Incheon.  I did add in a Munich to Manchester leg in between.  Business.  It just kept on coming up with Etihad who really aren't worth touching at the moment.  But like you, I clicked to go to their site and what has loaded there is nothing like what I was searching for.  Either it was a Etihad problem or skyscanner.  They also came up with a lot of 'Travelup' prices which were at least 3 million less than booking with the airline.  Not sure how they can do that and it just wasn't worth the risk.  I tried Momondo but that was equally as bad.  It was just easier and safer to go to with the airline's site.

I do the same.

I check with Expedia, and then book on the airline's site.  Prices are not often much different, but customer service is much better if there is an issue.
