  • I've had the biggest professional dry spell than I ever have in years.

    I'm in the middle of IT jobs right now, and I had this solid gig lined up, it was IN the bag, all I had to do was say yes.

    Then I get a call from this hot shot law firm, they say they wanted to interview me for a prominent IT position.

    I actually decided to DROP the first gig so I can take a chance with this law firm, I BLEW away the interview, like, CRUSHED it, hell, I even GRADUATED from a Web Development course that THEY held in their OWN building. I answered all of their questions, even went the extra mile on how to improve some of their systems and software, hell, I even studied their history from the ground up and I knew every single award they won. I'm a no-brainer shoo in for this job,

    Then I get a call a week later and they say they're looking for someone "with a closer fit."

    WHAT THE FUCK?

    So now you're telling me I lost this FIRST job, and despite blowing away this interview, I didn't get the job?

    Jesus Christ.

    Sorry, I really had to get that out. I've been through interview after interview and I'm just frustrated so I needed to let out some steam.

    • Sorry to hear that man. You should learn how to run your own passive side income gigs instead. There's a million ways to do so online, and you're an IT guy, so it should be child's play for you.

    • I'm so sorry to hear that, hope everything turns out great for you 😊

  • Yeah almost all my friends let me down, abandoned me, some made promises that they couldnt keep. which is why I have trust issues and block my feelings, cause I just dont care anymore - everyone you meet will always disappoint you one way or another.

  • I am going through a phase of not letting anyone get close enough to let me down. The only person who lets me down regularly is myself mostly due to my very insular nature and almost impossible high standards that I set for myself. I am too busy giving myself a hard time to notice anyone else letting me down.

  • My girlfriend knows I abhor people in general, she's decided she wants a massive party with loads of people for her birthday, the exacerbating factor is it's like this trip away so it's not just a night, it's a long weekend with no escape from her horrible friends she thinks are awesome. I wouldn't do that to her if she felt the way I do, I don't give a shit about birthdays really.

  • It's rare for someone to not let me down, but I've come to learn how to live with it. It's my goal to guide these people, that they may, in the future, be more.. able.

  • Actually had a genuinely pleasant conversation with a friend earlier who said she was glad that she knew me. I felt something in my stomach after that, and for once it wasn't repulsion. It was a strange feeling, but I wouldn't mind feeling it again.

  • My girlfriend let me down today, and about 4 weeks ago in the same situation. I asked her out to the movies, and she told me she'd love to go. Turns out, the days we were supposed to go, she is away from her phone literally the entire day, and doesn't respond until the next day and acts like nothing happened. Can someone tell me why girls do this? I understand that she was busy, but she could have at least told me... right?

  • There's set of boys that I thought were okay deep down, but I've found out they're really horrible, horrible people who like to go around telling people they don't agree with to die. I'm so disappointed in them as human beings but I'm also disappointment in myself that my judgement was so off.

  • One I'm willing to mention publicly is Paul Krugman, a liberal columnist from the New York Times, who for some bizarre reason I can't understand is absolutely infuriated by Bernie Sanders - the one presidential candidate we've had in recent decades who most effectively espouses the ideas Krugman himself has always fought for.

  • Yeah of course, my ex, because I loved him but he didn't apply his one quote"When you like someone, you need to have hope" when he first broke up with me because of distance and wanted me back, he ended up breaking up again (well I kinda pushed him to do it) for the same reason. I gave it another shot, but it's done.

  • My life has been series of let downs from people that I expected better from. But that's what happens when you have expectations.

  • Yes, it happens a lot while in a LDR. His schedule literally exhausts him and most nights Im up late waiting to video chat or text him but he never does.
    It makes me sad, but I understand it comes with his job. I just wish we were in a better situation.

  • I been let down on and off my whole life in different situations. Yes it hurts sometimes you cry and don't know how to let go. But eventually you move on not fully but it's part of life. Remember it won't rain forever the Sun has to come out soon. What doesn't break YOU makes you stronger.

    • besides that, no.. not really :)
      And as for the guy, it was not really let down but just a bit disappointing since we seemed to have had such great chemistry. But I guess/assume he wasn't ready for it and decided to pull back the reigns on it before moving forward.

  • Yes. A now ex of mine has. He can't make up his mind to save his ass lol.

  • This site lately. After I get 14,000 points, I will redeem my points, say goodbye to everyone, and deactivate. Except this time I am not coming back. I am anon for this because I know people will talk me out of it. The only thing I will say is that I am a regular user.
