I imagine that like the secret confessional thread on the old boards, it would be fascinating, problematic and nearly impossible to moderate.

Guys...no. Just no. There are so many things wrong with this idea, I can't even begin to tell you what a nightmare it would be.

Heh, yeah, I mean I think we all are on the same page about knowing how much of a nightmare it would be. But what a handy nightmare 'twould be! ;)

I don't think a secret PPK is actually a practical idea, I want it in the same way I want a pet unicorn.

You could always just create a new account without any identifying information and then talk generically about your problems. Then it would be anonymous.

That's actually against the posted rules of the PPK.

YES.

We don't want to be dicks, but personal relationship details on the PPK have led to WAAAAAAY too many mod PMs asking for threads/users to be removed. There are great people here, whose input can be invaluable, but if you're concerned about posting things on the internet publicly for all time, the PM function is a great way to reach out to PPKers. You can also avail yourself of Skype chat or whatever.

I just sent a text to T that totally made me cry. I made myself cry! I was just sitting here at work, feeling like my day will never end (I'm on the 2nd of 3 days in row that I'm working 11 hours straight and I have 8 more hours to go), wondering how on earth I was going to ever make it through this, when I thought about how I get to go over to his house and see him when I'm finally done. So I told him, how much I look forward to seeing him on days like this, even if we just sit on the couch and do nothing, that it means a lot to me just to have him around, that he makes me feel good, and thanks for that. I prefaced it by saying he didn't have to respond (knowing how much he hates the emotional side of things) and he totally scoffed in response, but I know he needs to hear it even if he says he hates it. And I needed to say it. I just feel so much relief when I see him sometimes, like the thing I've been waiting for finally happened, even if I just saw him a few hours earlier and we're meeting out or something. I'm so totally in over my head on this one. All of the feels, I'm feeling them.

NatureBoy is good at a lot of things, but talking about his feelings is not one of them. Over the holidays, I wanted to say "I love you" because I do, but didn't want him to think I was saying it so he'd say it back (because, ugh). So I found a way to say it with ASL and Polish and silly heart-shaped gestures and then, very shyly, in English, and once I said it in English, he said "me too, lots" which, !. Tonight is the first chance we've had for a long skype since I left Denmark because I am now at a winterschool for my PhD program, and classes + shmoozing. I'm pretty sure he said "I love you" three times. (I said it, too.) I feel so squishy right now! It's great. And also great that it's totally true. (I am also, continuously, so ready for this to be an in person/living together relationship. I am so curious about him. The more I know, the more I want to know. Etc., etc.)

I'm having a fun time plot out my proposal. At first I was thinking about having one long romantic date day (I have a gift certificate for a boat tour, then I was thinking we go to the museum we went on our first date, then out to fancy supper, etc) and proposing at some point in the day, but now I'm thinking he'll probably predict that.

He's deployed right now and he's been sending me a lot of rpg books, since they were on sale but he can't really have them sent there and bring all of it back, so I'm thinking now I can read through most of the World of Darkness games, run a game for him and incorporate the proposal into that somehow.

You guys!!!! Guess what?!?!!? He told me he's going vegetarian! He already doesn't eat dairy! He said it's easier for him to maintain his weight as a vegetarian and that he loves my cooking so we'd just have one meal at dinner. I'm so excited!

I have recently been thinking a lot about an ex of mine because it's winter and was thinking about getting in contact again (because cold=lonely) and then I heard from a mutual friend that she said last week, and I quote, " why won't she just move back here and let me fix her?"

so
uh

never mind.

Boober, is it wrong that i find that funny? Sounds like a great reminder of why she wasn't for you. Sorry you're feeling cold and lonely though!

It was hard to leave my mom and family this morning to go back home, but I missed my kitties and now I am home with them so that part is good.
