As for the potential negative effects on mental health, my past year has consisted of breaking up with my SO of 5 years followed my best friend proposing a relationship, changing her mind, and repeating the process (and then just stopping talking to me at all). I don't think I have anywhere to go but up.


We all enter life open eyes and hearts only to have that one person that turns you into a hollowed husk of your former self. After that, we settle, apply to law school, work in big law, live in some modicum of love and happiness, and die. I suggest you embrace the nihilistic lifestyle sooner rather than later.

If not readily apparent, I'm 90% kidding.

She was a succubus, a demimondaine, a harlot, a courtesan, a fille de joie with a certain joie de vivre.

:cry: Who am I kidding? She was a seraph! :cry:

Haha - thanks, I appreciate it. I'm teasing for the most part. I'm looking forward to exploring the options in graduate school.

In sincerity, I do think that many of us do get that one relationship that is a bit scarring even if it's really not the right person for you. After that, I found all my subsequent relationships were much more level and I didn't define myself by them as much. I was just dramatizing that past experience. :lol:

None of that is even nihilism.
