starry maybe theese friends arent friends if they cant except who you date or like is your decision and friends are people who stick by you no matter what and they can talk behind your back all they want but your right there so tell them if they arent talking behind your back tell you the secret too.

Yoo hoo, kids this is not a chat room. If you want to chat and have fun with people your own age, go here:
les!She has a problem that she needs help with!
Why would she come to a "poetry" forum for help with a personal problem?
She needs to go to a professional counselor if she's really concerned.
We're cheaper than professional counselors, and sometimes give better advice !
Here's cheap advice. Dump the friends then dump the boyfriend then start over. You have time.
Superfluous Advice--Dorothy Parker
Should they whisper false of you.
Never trouble to deny;
Should the words they say be true,
Weep and storm and swear they lie.
Good to see Ms. Parker being quoted here !
something I wrote down years back...never went anywhere with it
"Words and Music
written by Dorothy
and Charlie Parker"
Starry-Eyes, for what it's worth, here's my advice.
If people WANT to make things right, all you have to do is give them an opening, a chance to do it without losing face, and they'll do it. All you'd have to do is go to these two and say, "I miss you guys!" and then let them do the rest. (DO NOT say, "Why have you been avoiding me since I started seeing Guy?")
BUT if people WANT to be mad at you, there's nothing you can do about it. If you drop Guy, they'll make fun of that. If you try to reconcile with them, they'll make fun of that. If you try to warm things up between them and Guy, they'll make fun of that.
I assume that all four of you are young -- 20ish at most. That means that you are OUT OF SYNCH in your maturity. Some of your crowd are already functioning as adults, and some are functioning as junior high brats. Sometimes that happens and friendships go away. If that is what's happening, then you need to accept it and, above all, DO NOT REVERT TO CHILDHOOD to try to fix it.
When in doubt (what to say, whether to say anything), behave so that in the future, IF these two want to reconcile with you, there won't be any obstacle created by you.
ok thanxs for the confucious words marian!well my boyfriend i cant drop him out of the picture because hes my boyfriend and its not just whatever bye its more complex,thats like you just droping in on the president while hes making a speech!FBI secret service everyone while think your a terrorist!and the pres. will too
starry i think i know how to solve your problem!
Marian NYC, does it concern you at all that Starry and Stizzy have the same IP
You'll notice that everyone else on the forum has their own unique IP address. Perhaps they're pulling our leg.
They appear to be in Wisconsin.
Overflowing Buckets of Cheese !
Well, I could be wrong, but I've been assuming that (---.whatever.com) and (---.whatever.com) are two different addresses on the same server.
My postings always say "Marian-NYC (---.nyc1.dsl.speakeasy.net)" but my actual email address does NOT include "speakeasy" or "net" or "nyc1" or "dsl." I think that's just computer-speak for the path my message arrived on.
LG asked, "Does it concern you at all that Starry and Stizzy have the same IP address?"
EVEN IF THEY ARE THE SAME PERSON, the answer would be no, it doesn't concern me at all. I still meant what I said and I wrote it for anyone who might just happen to want to read it.
LG, you and I are clearly "concerned" and "bothered" by very different things. Good thing, too. Takes all kinds to make a world (or an interesting forum).
When I first came here, I was "concerned" abut the things that "bothered" Les.
One example I recall is someone mentioning William Blake in the same thread as Emily Dickinson
Now that I know Les a little better, I understand that he and I use "bother" in different ways, I assign such a heavier weight to the word.
Not only starry-eyes and stizzy are in Wisconsin, but apparently, so are Er and Travis. Perhaps they could all arrrange to meet at Starbucks.
And er and Travis seem to know catie. How big is starbucks?
ok people the way you figure out your problem is you talk to friends about your concern they dont wanna make time too bad you make them talk to u itll work
great advice marian. thanks it helped me.
Thats funny travis and i go to the the same school and I know where starry and stizzy go to!
We do know catie!
Why do I feel like an alien here, sometimes? I visit often. Shouldn't things seem familiar....I don't know but it's creeping me out.
What's creeping you out?
I am going thru the same thing you are. OMG, it's ridiculous isnt it? My "BFF" "Sara" hates my boyfriend. They always fight, and I've asked them both to cool it, and try to get along, for me. Both agreed, but never followed thru with it. I got sick of hearing her complain about how "mean" and "gay" my boyfriend is, I could have slapped her. She and others tell me how much I've changed since I've been with him. The point is, I love them both, but to them, I can't have my cake and eat it, too. So I told them both to grow up and either live with eachother's presense, or don't bother talking to me any longer. They both get along better, and all have stopped talking about each other. Although things arent peachy keen, I still have both. And if one does stop talking to you, good. They arent worth it if theyre jealous of the attention you give to the other. Good luck, and peace!!!!!
Pppssshwa? Like, how old are you guys?
At least I'm not the ONLY one who acts 12 here !
You got everyone! you can sure see who reads everything on this site LOL
of course er starry travis and catie know each other we all go to the same school and we have only cyberzone in our few connected towns we arent like new york we eat lunch all the time and theres a lack of starbucks in our horribly tiny towns!i dont know how old i am anyways i have a lack of knowledge since i was a baby
Don't any of you know how to use the Shift Key?
like k d cummings and e e laing
Like I said, some people you meet online are just really scary.
Talia, why post on a thread that bothers you?
Stephen's contention and I agree whole-heartedly is to ignore those whose posts are inappropriate. If we can ignore them, they will go away eventually.
The only reason the kids are here, is to get a rise or reaction from people they feel are pompous.
If we don't give them the satisfaction of playing their game, we win.

Number one he cuts himself, two he takes a ton of depression pills, three he's already tried to kill himself, four he's belemic, five he does drugs to make himslf happy, six he drinks to much, and seven he's only 14. He means a lot to my friend and she doesn't know what to do! Help please!!!! Thanks for listening.
So where is the problem? Except for the age 14 part, that could be anyone.
Just kidding. Perhaps this quote will be of some help:
What will end your suffering?
Poetry. You Lack Poetry.
Tanya Donelly, "Bum" (1997)
from "Lovesongs for Underdogs," Reprise, 1997.
Lin, let's see your friend has major problems and is only fourteen.
So you post his plea on a POETRY forum for strangers whose average age is about 50 to read. What's wrong with this picture?
A. Talk to your parents and his parents about the items you list.
B. Talk to your/his church about the problems he's having.
C. Avoid poetry forums for advice to teenagers, they always send you to help lines.
D. Go here:
