RE: Oh how 5 years changes things..

My take on it is that the girl seen what you were driving and she seen $$$. When you were worthless as a status symbol to her then, she blew you off, however, since you seem to be somewhat successful, you're now desirable to have around (can you say GOLD DIGGER?).

Now that I've said that, I don't think you should have treated her like shit because she did you 5 years ago. You could have let her down a little easy and expressed disinterest. Furthermore, if you really didn't want anything to do with her, you should have never led her on by talking to her to begin with.

We all do a lot of growing up all our lives. You will look back on this in another 5 and might regret doing that to her, or it could take 10 to do it. All the same, we were all born with nothing and in the end we will die. What will become of all our financial wealth then?

I will horde the wealth to bribe Satan to let me have all the whores that came on board, oops, I am not Snips. In any case I think I will be there too if such a place exists. Hey Snips maybe I can bully you there so you can get back at me when you are reincarnated as a farm animal, I know what I will be my fortune teller told me I will be a worm, so I thik a chicken will be a great return for you...

People inflict pain upon themselves -- there's no good reason for you to help that process along. That said, it's tough to have a real feel for the situation you've described. For one thing, the line she threw at you could be taken more than one way. For another, it's likely that neither of you are the same people you were five years ago. Perhaps you've gained confidence, perhaps she's softened. You can't just continue a converstion with a five year pause. If you let her hurt your feelings that badly five years ago, that's your fault, not hers.

In any case, if you're running a race and you get lapped by your friend's little brother, he doesn't have to say a word for you to know you just got your ass handed to you.
Excellent!

I'm really glad I didn't say "you should have gotten a b.j. first", or I really would have looked like a dolt.

Why not, that's a ligitimate offer. I would have asked for a bj what's wrong with that?

Why should I have to be "classy" and be the bigger man? She made me feel like shit and a loser so I am supposed to be classy to her? She talked to me because she thought "Wow here comes a sucker to take care of me and my bastard kid, I should now pretend to like him".
So, you think the way she treated you was shitty? You did the same to her, so what does that make you?

The best revenge is living well. What better way to get back at her than to act completely unaffected by her previous nastiness?
So true.

Well, I can understand why nobody has liked snips and everybody has treated him like shit. It's because you suck as a human snips. Seems like you went from 17 years old to 12. I don't know how, ask Stephen Hawking.
I mean "everyone" in reference to High School. I am not the most popular guy around town but I am not clearly as cool as someone who insults someone on the internet. But that's ok I can understand your anger, I probably accomplish more while taking a shit than you will in your entire life.
ha HA! Zing! [:0]

how is not wanting to have headaches with her, and someone ELSE'S kid, being shitty? isnt it normal for every man to want HIS OWN children, and not someone else's ....[?]
Amsoil, what the hell are you on about??[?]
i just want to know why a guy should have to be "obligated" towards some girl, just because she has a kid, and it would be the nice thing to do.....

RE: Oh how 5 years changes things..

Seems like you were kind of harsh. To bad you didn't tell her the same thing. What makes you think you have a chance with me. All and all, she will probably get over it or has already. Mom always said the way to get back at a girl was to be successful and untouchable. It shoulds like you gave it to her. She could have been nicer to you 5 years ago, but oh well. Such is life.....
