Let Go

Let go of the past, yes. But attention, you are at risk to letting go of the future too, the person who could make you happy and who makes you happy, who never leaves you down. You know who it is I am talking of. I read her blog too and I know I am right. A perfect match does not exist in the real life, only in the fairytales, but from i see, you two are as close as possible to it. Do not let it slip away. You may regret it later in the future. Let this have a happy end now, a real one. You will be happier too.

For the record, I published the above because I don't believe in picking and choosing what is acceptable, unless it's something out of line.

Guess I wasn't clear: it *wasn't* out of line or unacceptable, which is why it was OKed to get posted. I don't completely agree with it, but that's another matter.

oh not at all, you were clear. i'm just saying, i agree with what it says, for, as it often happens, something is plainly obvious to everybody else but the people involved. what i mean is that more often than not the view is clearer from the outside, and the view from the inside is foggy; friends/strangers may try to make one see what one is unable to see, simple as that. don't be too eager to dismiss this kind of help, a different point of view can often clarify our own. that's all.

I wonder what you're waiting for, or even worse, what more you want. She's gorgeous, smart, funny, sweet, witty, independent - and from the first comment it looks like she's into you and you seem to get along great. What more is there to want??? I mean, this seems to be as good as it can possibly get! So many people wait a lifetime to even find what you have in front of you right now. From your other blog entries it transpires that you are sitting and wondering if the grass is greener in some other pastures - I strongly suggest you open your eyes and see the greenness of the grass right where you are! Don't wait, don't let it go, don't throw this away. Live the chance you have been given, seize the moment, as they say. Ask her out. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Allow yourself to be loved. Allow yourself to be happy.

hm, i thought you said no mud slining, and that to me seems like mud slinging against 'her' - unless you only meant that as aimed at yourself. that is a low blow, if you call youirself 'her' friend, well, not doing a good job of that right now. unless you agree with the comment, in which case its a whole different story.

If it is not known to the bloggers friends, he basically can not date. As a Muslim one has been prescribed not do so based on certain reasons, which the blogger should be able to explain if he has not done so as of yet. This comment is just based on the observed comments on this particular picture.

Why is a thing/person/idea being imposed on someone when that someone is least interested? And why is religion coming into play suddenly? Is "anonymous ... of post on Apr 8, 2010 2:38 AM" trying to blame this blogger's religion now? You/(S)he has done enough of cornering the blogger from all possible aspects without any results and so blame his religion now?

It seems this blogger is intelligent enough to know what is good and what isn't good for him. Why can't you mind your own business? Is someone's time running out? Why is there this sudden surge of pushing/imposing a girl on him?

Get a life yourself, leave him alone.
Good friends dont "nag" but just suggest and thats it.

it honestly seems to me that nobody here is "nagging", pushing, or imposing anything, but just suggesting something that is being overlooked. nor is anybody blaming religious beliefs -- simply noting that it might play a part in this. i wonder how many of the commenters here actually know the people they talk about, if it's just friends expressing their concerns anonymously, for whatever reason, or if it's also blog visitors just pitching in with their two cents on what seems to have become quite a popular thread of comments. and while i'm at it, might as well play the game.

1) religion has nothing to do with this. we're talking about one person who grew up following certain traditions, and one who didn't, but who very subtly (that is, not publicly) expressed interest in those traditions and would not mind becoming part of them.

2) while their friendship is undeniable, for they are close friends and know each other very well, some people have also noticed other aspects, which are obvious to many but to those involved.

3) friends here (or others) are trying to shed light on what is being overlooked -- namely, that there is a strong potential for more than friendship. i, for one (and i assume others who have commented here, from what i read), would give my left arm to have what they have with someone else, be it a friend or a partner. what they have is truly special, and it shines so bright that i wonder why they haven't noticed it yet.

4) to all those pining for someone to love them, to understand them, to support them, and all that one desires in a loving relationship with others, the fact that these two have it within arm's reach and letting it go seems nothing short of a crime -- against the love that everybody looks for in life. at least, this is the pain i read through the lines. maybe they speak from (often painful) experience, maybe this is the only way they know how to help, maybe they don't want to see something so beautiful go to waste. there are many reasons why people may have commented here. i know mine are all of the above (and yes, i know them both - one better than the other).

5) someone's time is actually running out, truth be told. distance and regret, sadly, go hand in hand.

this blogger is surely a very intelligent person (and a talented photographer), nobody can deny that, and i'm positive that he knows what's right and what's wrong for him. but i'm also positive that he's intelligent enough not to dismiss suggestions given with the best intention, whether they come from friends, acquaintances or strangers. sometimes, people from the "outside" can see our world better than we do.

be well.

Each person has a certain amount of dignity. Why is 'Anonymous' [post of may 9, 2010 @ 12:17 AM, stripping the other person of her dignity/self-respect, by
continuously suggesting that person to this blogger? If you are a true friend of that person, please respect her, maintain her dignity. This is going too far. Dont you get it, he has
no interest except stopping short of friendship?
Friendship is different from companionship/spouse-ship (if this is even a word).
And please stop attacking a person's religion. He is what he is BECAUSE of his religion... the decent, the humble, the helping, the simple, the kind, the truthful, the one with patience and all the other good qualities that he holds, are because of his beliefs.

Please give each person their due respect, step away from getting into people's business. That is the best you ( if you are the same 'anonymous' posting similar messages over and over) and other commenters can do.

whoa whoa. stop there for a sec. "just another anonymous", your post is wrong on so many levels i don't even know where to begin.

1) why are you assuming that someone is trying to strip 'her' of her self-respect and dignity? if you knew her, you'd know she has both in buckets.

2) nobody is attacking anybody's religion; the comment was just suggesting that believing in a different religion should not be an obstacle for two people if they want to be together, that's all. but instead of understanding that, you managed to twist so much as to suggest that people cannot be "decent, humble, helping, simple, kind, truthful, patient and have good qualities" unless they are religious... can't they have all that just because they are DECENT HUMAN BEINGS, regardless of whether they believe in a higher entity or not? again, if you knew her, you'd change your mind.

3) do you know these people? if you did, i assure you, you'd know why people suggest what they suggest.

4) last but not least, speaking of respecting her - after reading this thread i have no doubts that the blog owner has no romantic interest in her, but i'm also starting to question his friendship for her - how else would he let her be offended like this by random people (see comment from may 28) without even trying to defend her himself? way to defend someone who always stood up for you like a lioness… you know, if this was you, being attacked, and she knew about it, there'd be some serious name-taking and ass-whupping.
