Don't worry guys, I'm cutting things off. I've done everything so far, just a little slow, but I AM doing it. I am cutting her off. It's tough, I've never been through anything like this before.

yup - new number ask phone co. to expedite

since you're a soldier, this is a great time for a group visit to a house of prostitution

tell your buds - & hopefully they will drag you there -- you don't need to do anything but wait downstairs for them on the couch, telling what happened to one of the ladies

Rwebb, you're a good dude, so no slap in the face personally.

Soldier is capitalized man, have respect for us please.
It's against UCMJ to consort with prostitutes, so don't put that out.

We're lenient to a point. If it gets stupid, then there are many Articles of UCMJ to pursue....last resort, we save Soldiers first if we can, they're a National Asset of sorts and we love them.

There are some really hawt hookers here in Hawaii. However in the end, they are still prostitutes, and as we know, all prostitutes have teh AIDS. I won't risk that. I just need to find a good porn site for the next few weeks until I'm over this, then I can go out cougar hunting

Too many posts to read but i think I see the story.
Close this chapter of your life. Sad since it is not the end you wanted.

Drug addicts will manipulate anyone they can to get what they want. It will be irrestistable at times. To make it stop, walk away.

There are plenty of organizations out there that will help if the addict wants to be helped. Until then, they are adrift. You do not have the tools to save her, only she does.

As you have been told, get her stuff out of your life, change your phone number (address if you can).

The ring, the car. They are just things. Let them go and move on.

You need your life back because if you do not move on you will sucked into her world and it is not where you want to be.

Move on. Do not look back.

Get some help for your self. You need to sever your ties and professional help will get you there.

You know, I was quite the lothario a few years back before I got married. I need to resurrect that part of me. I set some fun goals for myself originally: one was to sleep with at least 1 woman from each major ethnic group. black, white, Hispanic, middle eastern, etc. I've had everyone except for an asian. So I guess when I'm TDY in Korea this November I need to solve that problem.

Good for you Armon and I am sorry to hear about your troubles.

As lame as this may sound but did you ever think of getting a small pet? I know your life in the service may preclude you from getting a decent pet like a big dog but maybe get a kitten/cat? You would be surprised at what they can do to keep you spirits up and your mind occupied. It's a known cure from depression(not that you suffer from depression) but it might help any sadness you feel.

Cheers and best of luck my friend,

That's how I felt. I'm a nice guy, I have no desire to screw her over even though she hurt me. I told her to keep the ring, as the feelings we felt when we got engaged were genuine and nothing will change that. I'm a huge believe in positive reinforcement and really tried to say good things to her and encourage her to help herself. I really hope she helps herself, but now that I think about it, now I'll never know. I guess it's better that way. If she does fix herself, then that's wonderful, and if she doesn't, then I never have to suffer through seeing her fall even further.

Hang in there buddy.

Find your wing man and have him help you find your way out of this jungle. I suspect she will come a calling when her other options vanish. You WILL need someone to lean on to keep her away.

We are all here for you.

This should probably be in the "Admit to your stupidity" thread....

My ex-wife lost her $8,000.00 engagement ring - before I had it insured.
Lets not go there, it was a long time ago now.

Now I can really focus on my future though. I have nothing in my way. I can focus on my music 100%, keep on writing and recording it. And in about 10 months I'll be leaving Hawaii, going back to Monterey, CA to learn a new language. I have yet to choose the language though. I was wanting to try for Hebrew. I was born and raised Jewish, and although I'm an atheist now, I would still really like to learn the language. But who knows, we'll see. I also build electric guitars on the side as a hobby, and I can put more energy into that. And I can finally buy those damn carrera chain tensioners.

The one thing I'd do is make sure the dpt. of transportation in Hawaii is aware that you are no longer the owner of said vehicle. I wouldn't cancel the insurance until you know for sure that they know. One of the reasons you pay insurance companies it to represent you in court.

Spanish is the lengua de futuro en los estados unidos.

This chicks name wasn't Dawn by any chance was it?

And to be honest, I took the phone call because I was crying and not thinking straight. I will make sure I do not take anymore of her calls from here out.
S T O P I T !!!

Do not answer her calls. She is going to say ANYTHING to get you back. She lied to you. She will lie again. She Cheated on you. She will cheat again.

Dude, please. Read what you are writing and see it from our distanced perspective. Read what you are writing as if one of your buddies wrote it.

Your job tomorrow is to go to the cell phone store, cancel her phone (you are paying for it) and get a new number. If you continue the joint plan, you will be tempted to see who else she is calling, etc. It is human nature.

S T O P I T !!!

Only you can end this thing.

Yes it hurts. It sucks. You feel gutted.

Do not drink. Do productive things. Do not think about other women at this point, there is plenty of time for that.

Instead get a thick rubber band and put it on your wrist. Everytime you think about her, pull back on the band and snap yourself. And it needs to be enough to hurt. Use this feed back to get yourself to equate thinking of her with pain.

Look, even with all of this advice, NONE of us followed it either. We're giving you our hind sight. We all called our ex's. Or hugged them goodbye. Or slept with them "one last time". Or took them back, or whatever. We're just trying to help you not make the mistakes we have.

Only you can prevent forest fires...only you, smokey bear.

Guys, we're all being had and/or ignored here. He's going back to her. 100%. I'll take any bet on this. This thread is becoming trollish. He's already back with her. It's all over but the shouting.
