I've been really depressed lately, having just broken up with a girl I'd been seeing for the last 6 months. This girl was really the first girl I've truly loved, and I let myself get emotionally invested in the relationship (mistake) so I've been pretty down since we broke up. In an attempt to get over her, and to make her at least a fraction as miserable as I have been, I'm thinking of doing some evil things...

Ideas I'm contemplating:
- Put her personal, and work emails in every "send me spam" form on the internet.
- Submit her resume to some "special" jobs in the area (with my name as a reference?).
- Post sex videos taken with my iPhone on some porn websites, then send the links to her dad.
- Make a website dedicated to defaming her.
- Send a message to everyone of her friends on Facebook (from her account) stating her disgust for them as a person, then delete everyone of her friends.
- Setup a bot to send passive aggressive messages every 15 minutes to her phone via SMS.
- Let the air out of her tires & soap the windows.
- Strangle her and dump her body in the ocean (in the deep, anchored, of course).
- Buy her a puppy, anonymously, but infect it with an incurable disease, so it dies a few weeks after she gets it.
- Punch her in the face.
- Bang her room mate, record it on my iPhone and send it to her via MMS.

That's it for now. Thoughts?

I feel a little better now.

6 months?

Pff

At least Cash had a real investment in his car wreck so that we felt a little bad it went south. You on the other hand are just being a chick about this kinda sorta but not really a legitimate adult relationship.

It wasn't love, it was infatuation and apparently the first in a long line of such entanglements if your cookie-pooping ass doesn't grow up quick.

6 months!

I know you are relatively young, and honestly 6 months is literally nothing... you were dating... far different then being in love...

I know you probably feel like its the end of the world, but in time that will fade.

it takes probably 1-1.5 years to find out if you truely love someone... and 3 years to discover if you can spend a significant amount of time with the person... just my guess, but I think thats reasonable.

Dont do anything to her, just move on...

Or, you could bypass all that and just go find yourself a better looking chick with bigger tits. Which will annoy your ex way more than any of the above anyway.

I am fairly certain that even considering doing those things to her confirms that you do not love her. You wouldn't want to hurt her, if you were in love with her. You can't love someone one day, and then hate them the next... falling in love takes time, and falling out of love takes time as well.

What did your Ex do to inspire all that animus in you, b8c? As others have said, if you really love/loved her, I don't understand why you would want to do anything to hurt her. If you had any feelings of love for her, you should want the best for her even if the two of you aren't together.

Now if she cheated on you or broke your heart in a really evil way, I could understand your feelings. But if the relationship just ended in an upfront, civil manner, then you should be grateful for the time you had together and for the fact that you now have a new opportunity to find an even better match for yourself.

If you actually "really loved" her, why are you contemplating a list of extremely childish ways to "get back at her?" Follow Doofy's advice, or just go your own way.

Or you could just own up to the fact that life isn't perfect and stop worrying about an ex and go ahead and get on with your own life. How about that idea, eh.
One should never stop striving for clarity of thought and precision of expression.
I would prefer my humanity sullied with the tarnish of science rather than the gloss of religion.

It's childish to proclaim that getting invested in a relationship is a mistake. And it's childish that you're trying to get back at your ex gf. Drill into your head that she doesn't want you anymore and look for someone new when you're ready. Convert your negative energy into something positive: do sports, for example.

Besides, 6 months isn't all that long, after 6 months you start with the real relationship (being in love with someone ---> loving someone).
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Who the hell ever said life was easy or fair. Move on and quit being a baby.

And to reiterate what others have said; if you really loved her you wouldn't seriously consider doing any of those things to her. Revenge is childish.

Technically, if he joined the forum when he was 10, it could be child pornography.

Jeez folks, I wasn't truly considering these acts, just venting. Thank you, though, for the words of wisdom. It felt good just to get it out, I'd never actually do any of these things to her - I'm somewhat sane. I was hoping others would have fun with the idea of revenge and come up with some creative suggestions. Why so serious?

I think you should crash your car and buy another new one. That would show her.

Doing anything shows you still care, simply ignoring her existence is the only way to go.

I'd call her, then when she answered say "Oops, I was trying to call the other (insert her name), sorry." Then hang up.

Who knows, ignoring her enough might end up with her in your bed in the future.

I agree. Though I still think banging her roommate is a good idea if she is hot.

The puppy is a good idea, but you should put a small explosive device into it rather than giving it an illness.

Wait a few weeks and pop that puppy. Literally.

Another vote for Doofy's idea. I've done that one before -- it's crazy satisfying. The problem with the plan is that you have to keep finding girls with bigger and bigger ta-tas to get over the previous girl.

Wait, did I say problem? I meant AWESOME. Yeah.

If she's worth anything "upstairs", sleeping with her roommate will only make her think less of you. Really, just get a new girlfriend and "live well".

Which I would be all on board with if not for the fact that you haven't said what she did to you.

I mean if she acted like a complete Cody and treated you like shit then you'd be within your rights to get even in a non criminal way.

But if all she did was just pull the plug then you'd be the one in the wrong.

Who knows. I made the mistake of falling in love with my best friend of 6 years (we're both guys). We spent every waking minute together for more than a year -- eating dinner, hooking up, going out, etc. I'll never stop thinking about him.
