How to get your girlfriend back? (update)

Before you read on. Click here for part one of James's story if you haven't read it already.

School started. 

I watched Nicole every chance I got for days and nothing, it's like she didn't even know me. At lunch I tried to sit and talk but she refused. Shit. Communication right? Isn't that what she always babbled about. 

The crazy part is...I feel great. I loved her. Yes. But I was blind to see the truth...Nicole didn't give a rat's ass about our relationship. She told everyone it didn't work out and Sam just kept spreading the rumors.

Apparently Nicole and Sam were both dumass's. Have nice sisterly love life together bitches.


Yesterday at school was interesting. I'm hangin with a friend in lunch...

"So when did you get back with Karen?" Juan asked

"I'm not, it's a fuckin rumor" I told him

"I know, I just think it's funny. Nicole, Sam, everyone thinks you're a dick hahaha--HEY!"

I grab Juan's pizza and smack it against the floor.

"Yea funny I know." I said

"Ok now give me your fuckin pizza!"

"Nope" I said

"James can we talk?"

Karen. My ex from last year walked up to our table and took a seat next to Juan. Her hair was different.

"Yea sure what's up?" I asked

I knew what was up. I didn't need a reminder but Karen had some explaining to do.

"I didn't tell anyone we were still together." she admitted

"I know you didn't, Sam did. Anything else?"

Juan was starring at my pizza. I slid it to him and he snatched it from me.

"And I wanted to say sorry about the video. I told my friend to take it only because I was excited that day."

"Yea I know. It was our first kiss." I nodded scratching my head.

"Spin the bottle." she smiled


Karen spinned the bottle one night and we ended up making out. I asked her out. She said yes. That was the last time I played that game.
If only I can shut down all the memories in my head like in that movie eternal spotless mind? Forgot the exact name but Nicole loved that movie.

"Ok well, I'll see you english." She smiled

She's in my English class? I guess I didn't recognize her from the hair color. 

I nodded and said "Nice hair."

"It's red magenta." she explained then left

When I was with Karen, I use to be very angry all the time. I would get into a lot of fist fights...even with her brothers. Her parents hated me. The bad kind of hate. They would do all they could to keep her away from me. She had anger issues too. Complaining about everything and everyone. I'm thinking that's probably why we got along so much. 

One day she ended it suddenly saying together we we're like a ticking time bomb. Our love was strong but our anger eventually tore us apart.

Man how things change so fast...especially when your a teen.

I realized I was starring at Karen standing on the other side of the lunchroom when

"She got a big booty!" Juan laughed around a mouth full of pizza

I turned to him and burst out laughing.


Blogger: James explained in an email that his story after my edit is very cheesy but it's all true and him writing about his days throughtout helps him see things in a different light.
Hope to hear from you soon James.

My mom's it xxxxxx abuse? (Update)

Before you read on. Click here for part one of Diana's story if you haven't read it already.

Hey Rita and others,

Thank you all for your advice. My mom was wondering why I've been so distant. So I decided to let it all out. Mostly.

I don't want to use real names so I'll call my mom's boyfriend Robert.

3 days ago...

"You want to come over and watch a movie later?" my friend Zena asked

"I can't, fuck face is coming over." I said. Robert comes almost everyday now.

"Why do you hate him so much?" she laughed "Yea he's ugly but your mom really likes him right"

"Doesn't mean I should."

"Is he mean to you?"

"No, too nice actually."

"Ok then just let them be, you probably still have to a-just." she said "Anyway did Mick ever text you back."

Mick is our friend since elementary school and he got sick with a virus yesterday and we haven't heard from him since. 

We talked a little more then went our separate ways. When I got home Robert was there and I just said hi and went to my room. Mom disapproved but I told her I was really tired.

Knock Knock.


"Diana? can I come in?"


Robert came in anyway and said he asked my mom if he can talk to me.

"About what?" I asked

"I just want to make sure you're okay."

"I am."

He smiled knowingly and spread his arms wide.

"Wanna hug?" he asked

"Nope I'm fine."

He dropped his arms and walked toward me.
I backed away.

"Diana, you always seem uncomfortable around me. And it hurts."

"That's just how I am." I said

"You know you have your mom's features. Her eyes, her lips...very beautiful"


"You know what Robert you're right, there is something wrong and I'm gonna talk to my mom about it soon but I just need some time." I said  "Thanks for the talk thou"

He leaves me alone thankfully. That night when it was just me and my mom I was explaining to her that Robert says stupid things I don't want to hear and he's alien to me. My mom said he's just trying to get me to like him.I didn't tell my mom the time he held my hand one too many times or the time he squeezed my thigh when all of us were watching a movie. Shit I feel so stupid. Nothing feels right anymore...

Around 1:00am that night...

I snapped and called my friend Zena and started crying and complaining about everything.

"Are you sure he's not trying to be fatherly?" she asked thru the phone

"Not even close."

"Then why don't you just call the cops?"  she said

"That's going too far" I told her

Could I be over exaggerating.


"Diana you want to invite your friends to Dave and Buster's tonight" my mom asked me

"I already did." I said.

"Ok good. Get ready cause we're leaving soon."

I go to my room to get dressed and almost scream when I find Robert sitting on my bed. Yikes.

"Diana, what exactly did you tell your mom about me?"

"Get out of my room." I said.

"Don't be rude Diana. I'm just trying to understand why-"

"It's none of your business how I act or what I say to anybody"

"Come on what did you say?" he asked "That time I touched your leg haha. I was only excited for the movie Diana why else do you think--"

'Get out of my room." I told him

"Yea she said get the hell out of her room!"

Mick, my friend, slams my door open wide and gets in Robert's face. Zena walks over to stand by me.

Robert laughs and places a hand on Mick's shoulder. "How are you Mick?"

Mick ignores him and jerks his hand away.

"Fuck you douchebag! Who the fuck you think you are huh?"


"No Diana! No! Fuck making you cry and making you feel like shit and you don't tell us nothing. Fuck that!"

"Zena?" I looked at her. She told.

"Zena told me everything Diana and it's not nothing!" Mick shouted

"Zena I told you not to tell anyone!" I said

"What's going on in here?" My mom came in shouting.

"It's nothing, were all just excited for tonight right guys?" Rob lied

"Mick is it true? Has Diana been crying?" my mom asked calmly

"Yes ma'am." Mick answered.

"Diana I told you Rob is just trying to get to know you!" my mom whispered angrily

"Ma'am," Mick interrupted " Rob has been touching Diana in ways she doesn't like and-"

"Diana!!" my mom yelled "what are you telling everyone! I can't believe this honey this is embarrassing!"

"It's fine, it was all a misunderstanding..." Rob lied again.

"Zena, Mick...I'm sorry but you two have to leave now." my mom said

"Ma why are you kicking them out! Kick Rob out!" I shrieked

"Ok that's it your staying in your room tonight."


"Mick, Zena goodbye." my mom said, ignoring me.

Zena looked at me like she was sorry and left. Mick stared at Rob in disgust and then left.

"Rob I need to speak with my daughter alone"

"I'll be waiting downstairs." Rob nodded

My mom shut the door and sat next to me.

"I don't want to talk about anything." I said

"Tell me what is going on Diana." my mom asked

"Why should I? You don't care or believe me."

"Because your making up things that--"

"Just leave already! Aren't you gonna be late?" I said "Rob's waiting."

I know I could be misunderstanding this whole thing but I wish my mom would be on my side for at least one second.

Eventually they all left and I snuck out. I texted Zena to meet me in Micks house. 

Ttyla, Diana

Blogger: I didn't add the part where she meets up with Mick and eventually Zena because she was a little confusing in her email when she sent this so let me get that settled. It was also very sensual too so I have to see about that as well <laughs> Would you guys like to know that part? So I can make sure with Diana.

Ttyla, Rita

How to get your girlfriend back?

<This post has been edited with writers permission to allow better understanding and censorship. Story and events are all true.>

Hey this is James,

I'm 17 and my girlfriend, Nicole, is 16. We've been together for six months. We loved each other; everything was fine until last week.

I go to her house and of course her sister Sam is there. She's in my grade and she's **  *** crazy.

"Hey Sam where's Nicole?" I asked

"Why the hell would I tell you?"

And then she walks off.

See. Crazy.

"Because she's my girlfriend!" I screamed as she went to the bathroom. Dumbass.

I'm not surprised by her attitude, she's physco. One time she asked if I can beat up a guy in school for her. Hell no.

Eventually I found Nicole sitting outside alone.

I walked toward her and she jumped when she saw me. She always got easily scared.

"What's wrong?" I asked her. She was crying, I could tell.

"Nothing's I'm just tired" she smiled but she wasn't looking at me.

"You sure? why were you crying?" I asked

"I wasn't" she laughed

"Yes you were Nicole. Tell me. Don't worry I wont do anything stupid" If I found out someone made her cry I will do something very stupid.

"I promise it's nothing. I'm just so happy"


I didn't push it and instead grabbed Nicole from behind and wrapped my arms around her waist. She smiled again and I kissed her on the cheek.

"Love you" I said

"yeah" she said


I turned her around to kiss her but she was crying again.

"I know something is wrong what is it?" I demanded

"No, it's nothing, I'm crying cause I'm happy."

"No your not. What's wrong?" I asked again

"Tears of happiness" she smiled "I'm so happy with you but..."


"I love you James but I'm so confused. My sister told me something..."

That's when I almost lost it "What the hell are you talking about?"

The most surreal thing happened then. Sam marched outside and got in my face.

"Everyone knows you cheated on her James so **  *** admit it already!!"

"What the **  ** are you talking about you trash bitch!"

She held up a video of me making out with Karen. That was a year ago.

I looked at Nicole. Her hands covered her mouth and she cried even more.

"She's lying Nicole you know she is" I laughed. I shouldn't have been laughing but I can't believe Sam was jealous this whole time.

Nicole just stared at me. No emotion.

I grabbed her hands and kissed them "Babe that was before I met you!"

"Karen said it was two months ago!!" Sam yelled

"Sam get the hell out of my face or I will drop my fist on your face by accident." I wasn't really going to punch her but I needed to scare her off.

"James just go home. I need to think and you disrespecting my sister is not helping." Nicole said

I stormed out before I did anything I'd regret. Who took that damn video?

And that's my story. It's been a few days and she has ignored my calls and texts. I try to go over her house but her parents tell me that it's not a good time.

I have no idea why the hell all this happened. I'm gonna try to go over her house again tomorrow I guess.

My mom's it xxxxxx abuse?

Dear Rita and others,

(photo from Diana, post it reads "Dear Mom")

I'm Diana and I'm              years old. I love my ma so much and I want her to be happy but I'm not happy with her so called boyfriend. They met in a car wash a few months ago and then he asked her out etc

It was nice until a few weeks ago when he acted like a             

I asked "Hey              (mom's boyfriend) where's my ma?"

He said "She went out. She'll be back in an hour sweetheart" and then he winked.

I thought why did I bother asking this jerk? Something about him makes me so uncomfortable. The first time I saw him I was like NO!

It turned out my ma went out to buy some stuff so she can cook dinner. When she got home I helped her make dinner whatever. (I seem like a brat I know but I'm so disgusted these days...)

My ma was about to clean up the dishes and I said "no I'll do it." (She looked beat so she went to rest in her room)

As I was cleaning the dishes              comes in and starts to talk to me about my life and my friends...

I told him my friends are cool and we like to do this and that. That's when things got awkward.

He asked "do you have a boyfriend?"

I said "don't worry about it"

"well he's lucky" he said

"I don't have one!" (I felt like he tricked me into admitting this.)

I looked over my shoulder and he's smiling. He's creepy. I get really scared when he's still staring at me as he slowly stands up and walks toward me. I look away and wash faster..but then he's behind me grabbing the sponge from my hand. I froze and I almost cry because I felt so stuck and in danger.

"Want me to help?" he asked

"No" I whispered scared I'd anger him

he whispered back "ok" close to my face and backed away from me.

That night I couldn't sleep. The days after that when he came were even more intense. Is this sexual abuse? I feel like my life is being controlled. I don't wanna tell my mom I'm uncomfortable with              because that would upset her.  He's coming next week and my mom wants me to always be around when he visits otherwise it would be rude.

Help, ttyla
