My therapist says I internalize a lot of my feelings and have passive agressive tendencies. I need to nuture my inner child and feed my personal groth potential.
So I broke his head with a tire iron and went for a ride.

We broke up when I met my future wife. The problen was that supposedly we were dating for quite some time and never kissed or hugged or even did the naughty and I was clueless that I was even in a relationship. I just went to a new years party and met my future wife. When I left after a big confrontation she asked me "What happened to us?" I was floored and didn't know what to say. Boy talking about confusing.

Just wondering if the breakup happened because they felt you rode too much and neglected them.
Give a break folks. At least something bike related was edited in (bold). :p :D

Ride too much? No. Worked on cars too much? Yeah, that was part of it. When I got the "you just remember that I was here first" line it should have been a warning. :rolleyes: :bluefrown: :eek:ut: :rant: :incazzato: :crazy:

Meh, I at least found out that what they say about "ex sex" is true. Best evar!!!!11!!!! :lol:

You guys are harsh! I'll take a thread like this ANY day over the "how often do you wash your shorts" or "crotch rot" variety.

I once wrote a ride report for our local site, including a description of the post-ride euphoria, how even though I was a non-smoker, I could've had a cigarette it was so satisfying.

One of my buddies responded, "No wonder she's single- no guy could satisfy her like THAT." :p

I put biking on the back-burner during my two serious relationships so it was never a factor in the breakups, but I'll never make that mistake again.

I think it's cycling related

Shortly after meeting my wife (she hates it when I say "my current wife") we agreed to meet for a bike ride. When she showed up with a Campy Record equipped custom road frame made by a friend I knew she was the one.

But to answer your question... it isn't the bike that strains a relationship. it's not providing balance to do one's own thing. I can go for a ride, or go to a race... but i have to let her have her time. it's even more important now that we have a 6 1/2 yr old daughter.

but if the woman ever says "it's the bike or me" before riding away make sure it's not about the bike.

My ex fiancee didn't like it when I went riding. He was a bit jealous, afraid that I would meet someone else or I'd get hurt. I might not be the fastest rider out there, but I'll bet I'm one of the safest...

The bike wasn't a factor in our breakup. It caused tension because it was something that he couldn't take part in (he only had a ...what the hell was it? It wasn't trail worthy, that's for sure!). But he had some control issues. That's why it ended.

The summer after we broke up, I rode every damn day. Bwa ha ha!

Girlfriends are just like most problems: If you ignore them for long enough, they go away. Or kill you.
