Not my Solid Snake anymore. (12)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2008-10-08 12:52 ID:PBmmNdCI

During the summer, I met a boy about my age. We were at a party playing Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and he picked Snake. I love Metal Gear so I struck up a conversation with him about it. We quickly became good friends afterwards, staying up all night to talk about videogames and getting together to play as often as we could.

I soon learned this boy had a crush on me. After a few months I began to feel the same for him as well, and we quickly fell into a relationship of quoting Metal Gear in every conversation, going to the mall to pick out Wii games, and blasting Snake Eater as we drove around downtown. It was quite beautiful for a while.

However, soon, college began for me, and he had to start work. Insomnia and stress took their toll on me. I stopped being quite as happy and sunshiney as I had been during the summer. I cried often. I had no time for videogames, and neither did he. We lost our common ground for conversation and it slowly began to go downhill from there.

Sometime during this, oral sex became a regular thing for us, as I really enjoyed doing it. Unfortunately, something about this caused a great emotional upwelling, and after the 5th or 6th time we met for this, he burst into tears, telling me that he didn't feel as strongly about me anymore, and that he was very very sorry, and that he really wanted to make things work because he truly cared about me.

But that was quite some time ago, and it hasn't gotten much better. He says he still likes me, just not as much as he did during the summer. This is frustrating me, as I love him dearly, regardless of our changes. I still get goodnight kisses and the occasional head on the shoulder, but not much else. It's killing me, it really is.

He said he doesn't know if there is hope, but he's willing to try regardless.

I want him to go back to being the Snake to my Meryl, the Big Boss to my Eva, the Sorrow to my Joy.

...But what can I do? How can I fix this? ...can I?

Sorry this is kind of long...

Well,... It looks like the initial spell of the relationship has waned, and you are confronted your first crisis (if your relationship survives this, there will be many others).

Basically your relationship needs to grow, or it will die. It can't afford to stay the same as in the beginning. So I suggest that you find more common ground than just Metal Gear, and diversify the kind of things you do together. Organize stuff together, create some shared memories, get to know each other better. It's a bit too soon to feel you know each other too well.

I'd agree with this post. All YOU can really do is reach out to him in new and different ways. Unfortunately, relationships by their nature can't be one sided and he will eventually have to make a move to follow you or its not going to last.

Hope it works out in your favor, just remember if it takes a turn for the worse that its really not worth it to dangle with someone who doesn't really like you back. Everyone needs/deserves someone who really likes them back, but who is ultimately up to them.

OP here, well...he broke up with me, pulled the ol' "I still like you, but we're just going to be friends for a while, then if things work we'll get back together" trick. Then it was amazing, we went right back to quoting Metal Gear like crazy, we had fun conversations and lots of hugs. But it just hurt to be around him, to not see that spark in his eyes.

Eventually it became fairly obvious I was no longer wanted. He changed his Who I'd Like to Meet on MySpace to, "an amazing girl" (previously "I've already found who I've been looking for"), and blabbered on and on to a friend about how much he wants "a hot girl with a car".

Needless to say, I'm pretty heartbroken.

I put every Metal Gear game I own in a box with the rest of his possessions and put it in the closet.

Maybe I need to look for an Ocelot instead of a Snake this time.

Did he ever talk about other games? Geez, why keep talking about Metal Gear? There are so many good games out there. (Yakuza, Uncharted, GTA 4, and some HOT rpgs)

Don't look for OCELOT. Look for OTACON :D He'll remain faithful to you. :D

I somehow sense that Metal Gear was not the point of this thread,...

But on the other hand you're right, there're plenty of other gam... hum guys ^_^

Dude, we talked about other stuff, it's just that Metal Gear is his most favorite franchise (mine is Mother), and it was something we could both relate to since we'd both played all the games obsessively.

And bwahaha, I've never been that into Otacon, but I gotcha, you're totally right. Ocelot wouldn't be too nice.

Now if I could just find a the Pain, I'd be all over that sucker!!
