    I don't believe in that "meant to be" bullshit. If that answers your question at all.

    she won't...time to move on.

    The phrase is complete crap and it's responsible for more senseless drama in relationships than just about anything else.

    As you age, you realize how retarded this phrase really is.

    It's a load of crap. Let them go, they go do their thing, get bored and come back...then they'll do it all over again.

    I did this once, she did come back. Then I realized how much of waste of time she was.

    IN general,

    I don't advocate passiveness.

    I don't advocate advice that promotes passiveness.

    Believing in fate is what people whose lives suck do to feel better.

    Make your own fate.

    Only the first half is ever true. Sometimes the best thing for two people in a troubled situation is to part ways before things snowball.

    as a whole, that phrase just never made much sense to me. as far as i'm concerned, if you can't keep the relationship going thru the thick and thin of things, then there's really no reason to believe it's "meant to be."

    phrase should be reworded:

    if you love someone, let them choose to go. If they don't go, then it was obviously meant to be.

    Love works both ways.

    I don;t believe it at all.


    If something is meant to be, you work at it, if it doesnt work out you move on.

    All of these stupid phrases about love and "meant to be" stuff and fate are all shit. It's not reality.

    Not very strongly at all.

    Attraction and love are two separate things. People can be desperately attracted to each other and get along horribly, or they can be best friends and never once think about hooking up. If you let someone go and they come back, it doesn't mean you were meant to be together, it means your hormones match up.

    Cynicism is wisdom that you're not old enough to understand.
