ya know, not to be nosy or anything, but I can't offer much advice until I know what it's about....this is in no way pressuring you to tell me...but sometimes the right thing may seem wrong in the beginning, but if you truly believe it was the thing to do with your heart, I think it will work out for the best. It's like seeing chocolate and wanting it sooo bad, but you turn it away now because you know if you give in to temptation once, you'll give in more and more and gain weight. haha maybe not the best analogy. haha, I tried.

yes, I have. And the guys were friends, and it made it worse. I was completely lost.

So what did you do? I don't really have too much of a choice anymore...one of them decided he doesn't want to be my friend anymore

I think in situations like these someone, or everyone will get hurt somehow. I don't think there is a nice way to go about it. Well, in the relationship I was in, I looked at what made it worthwhile. Then, I saw what drove me to like the other person. I saw that what I liked about the other person was just wanting something new and something different, so I realized that there were no genuine true 'lovey' feelings for him. Maybe just infatuation of what I didn't have. I also realized that the relationship I was in, was and still is the best thing for me. The other person I thought was fake and put on a show, after I got to really know him. I don't know. The guy I was dating, had no clue I felt the way I did for the other guy until months later. It's just the guilt that took toll on me. I know that the person I was with was the right choice because he was completely genuine and had nothing to hide. Ya know how some people do things rebellious and you think it's cool as crap, and you wish you could be that way, but there is no possible way...that was me. I wanted to be the risk taker. I also thought about the future with both, and I know that the other guy would've gotten me in trouble. That's my story. I'm assuming one of the guys is Mr. Chase....if so, I'm gonna have to be on his side. If it's not, I'm sorry, and wish you luck. I'm here to talk anytime... iamandapanda on AIM

I wonder if sometimes there is no right or wrong thing.

I believe there are times when we just don't know forsure if we are doing the right thing...but for me I ALWAYS follow my heart..if I feel "comfortable" with my decision then I'm ok...I don't have to feel completely comfortable but more comfortable than uncomfortable...I believe my heart always knows best...I live my life alot off of the quote by Pascal..."The heart as reasons which the reason does not understand" We may not always understand if we are doing the right or wrong thing but you heart will lead you to the right thing! *HUGS*

We may not always understand if we are doing the right or wrong thing but you heart will lead you to the right thing

I hope so...

Sometimes you just know, it might feel bad - but usually you know inside if you really ARE doing the right thing.

It would sure be easier if we all just had a Jimminy Cricket though.

I want a Jimminy Cricket...he could make all my wishes come true and stuff...oh wait...or was he just a conscience? I don't remember...I should go back to my Disney roots or something...haha...

I suppose I should reflect more.

He was Pinnochio's conscience...

But he could be a hooker too, Ive seen how crickets rub their legs together!

And he did that little "Give a little whistle!" song.

Roughly translated from Cricket to English, it prolly means "Hey mister! You look lonely... wanna bang a loose horny cricket?".

When it feels good ;)

(Yes, I'm being flippant, but only half-so. Feeling good in your soul is the more serious answer)

lol...I don't think everything that is right necessarily feels good.

Depends on the perspective I guess...

I guess I am kind of looking at it from the perpective that emotionally it doesn't feel too good to always do the right thing... :(

I think the real tragedy is in not or never knowing:

The saddest words
Of tongue or pen,
Are these four words,
It might have been.

Hmm...I think I will always wonder that...
