I need some advice for a particular question
Is it okay to give a girl some hope that she might be able to get back together with you one day even if you think it is a remote possibility mind you you aren't leading her on just giving her a little bit of hope is that wrong?
Comments questions or advice

Well, you can't write off anybody indefinitely since things change but if you're giving her false hope, that's not exactly "nice".

If you are more than 75% sure that you don't want to get back together with her, just tell her. Let her move on to some other guy, without the thought of "He might come back to me!" circling in her head.
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

What ann said. Personally, I have done this various times to women, and it usually just ends up in a mess. Set her straight.

False hope really messes people up. Don't put her through that, even if it might seem like what she wants to hear.

Trust me. Listen to this. This happened during my freshman year, and ended up with someone moving to a different school.

Latter part = Personification

Same. I was on the receiving end so I know what the girl will go through. She's a big girl; she can get through it. You might think that you're protecting her and that it's a harmless little white lie. But she can misconstrue it into a promise of your return, very easily. Or when you find a girl you really want to be with; you'll have to break it to the first one, which can blow up in your face BIG TIME and then deal with the second one asking why you didn't tell the truth. Not the best way to start of a relationship, right? It just gets messier and messier.... 0_0

Please use periods. That was very annoying to read.

In any case, the truth would be good here.

I think it's wrong, yes. Be utterly truthful; better the hurt now than later.

Plus you probably like the attention so it may be a form of self-flattery to keep her hanging on.

A remote possibility, you can't string someone along like that.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I had to reread his second and third sentences, "Is it okay to give a girl some hope that she might be able to get back together with you one day even if you think it is a remote possibility mind you you aren't leading her on just giving her a little bit of hope is that wrong?"

That I had to backtrack is annoying.

Paraphrase could have been much easier to read.

Paraphrase [sic] could have been much easier to read.

belle said that StrikeEagle simply starts a new line for each new sentence.

I wanted to point out that this was wrong. To push this point, I had to quote.

I don't think there;s anything morally wrong with it, but you're teetering on the douchebag line there.

Probably better to give more generalist encouragement where relationships are concerned, talk about there being many more fish in the sea and how it's always darkest before the dawn and how she shouldn't believe in herself but believe in you who believes in her and how hers is the drill that will pierce the heavens and I forgot where I was going with this.
What fresh dickery is the internet up to today?
