    OT: What do you do when you don't want to think?

    Yesterday I had a very very bad day. My best friend/girlfriend and I got in a fight and now she's pretty much having nothing to do with me. Obviously I'm hurting kinda bad. I was with her for almost 4 years, and I've known her for 7. I'm hurtin real bad.

    I'm trying to keep myself occupied so I don't think about it, but I'm failing miserably. What do you guys do when you don't want to think about something?

    Note to self, make sure I know phone number for FTD in Australia.

    As far as advice, 5 years later and I still think of it from time to time. Best advice, go do something that you've always wanted to go do. Make an excuse, whatever is needed. Just go do it and have fun.

    For me, I like to go on long bike rides. As long as I don't get caught in a thunderstorm, it's very therapeutic. I've always done my best thinking in the saddle.

    So I vote for doing something outdoors - go for a long walk, hike, run, bike ride, etc.

    Good luck and hope things work out.

    I would just take a good long nap. Why? Because the two of you have been together long enough it is a fight and probably not the real end.

    The nap will help even if I am wrong about that.

    It is all fun.

    Been a long time since that kind of thing happened to me...fights when you've been married a long time (20 years here) have an entirely different dynamic, since there's a lot more at stake and you can't just take a time out from each other.

    But IIRC, what worked best back in the day was to do something that absolutely requires your attention but is not self-destructive or stupid. Anything will do...if it makes for a good story later on, all the better.

    In my experience, while you're occupying your conscious mind with something manic, your subconscious is working on the problem with your gf. Her subconscious is doing the same thing (it may not seem so now, but she's human, too, and is hurt, too, and has feelings for you, too).

    In my case, once the rage departed I'd eventually come up with some sort of peace gesture and some good words to say. Give it time...it'll work out.

    Best of luck to you. If she's the right one, have faith that you'll both figure out a way to make it work.

    Tacking a time out will take fight out of any situation there is.

    I got senority on the marriage thing too btw.

    Even the worst skeptic will see things differenly after a time out.

    Although true to my sig I still got some kids from the sand box days that if I ever see again it won't be to play.

    It is all fun.

    Thank you for all of the kind words. I really appreciate it. You guys are like an extended family to me.

    Turns out though, we departed because she wanted to chase another guy. That's all fine and dandy, but I feel she coulda been a bit more up front about it. I really don't see an us in the future as hard as that is for me to say. I really did love her, but I guess all good things must come to an end, and if it was really meant to be it will work itself out in time. So for now I'm just going to keep myself occupied until I forget it. I've always wanted to go skydiving. Maybe I'll rustle up some cash to make that happen. I got a couple dirt bikes in the garage that I've been meaning to get out, maybe I'll con my dad into going with me this weekend. We'll see.

    Once again. Thank all of your for the kind words.

    And your right Andrew, I do want a Ray.
