Final Update

Hey, so its been a long time. Loner4ever.com has not been updated in years and will no longer ever be updated. This site will act as archive of all the stories that were part of the project. I’ve made a book, given three performance and now recorded an audio version of the book. It’s been a great ride.

Have a look at everything here: http://vincenthulme.com/

Thanks for reading and crying with me. Whether tears of sorrow or of laughter, I hope it was enjoyable.

walk in on him injecting heroin into his feet.

couldn’t hold a job and was always broke. but stood by his side. withdrawals, depression and anger brought us both down. many lies of false sobriety later, admits he needs help, wants to get clean and marry me. drive him to a detox/psych ward center, stays for 5 days.

week and a half out of detox, starts hanging with a woman he met in the psych ward. has more money than me. starts dating her behind my back. buys him dinner and drinks, cheats on me.

find out, confront him, huge physical sid n nancy style fight, knife pulled…

over now. is with his new gf now.

alone with physical and emotional scars.

Go by her practice session, drop off her stuff and get some closure.  She runs away when she sees me.  Changes her number the same day.

Thought she was perfect, feel betrayed, feel guilty cuz I pushed her to move in, feel mislead cuz everything she said was a lie, thought she had my back, thought she’d choose me over her family.

No closure,

Im 28 years old. Never had any friends, guys or girls. After 1 million craigslist posts go unanswered, I finally get a reply to one. We say hi, after a couple messages she suggests we meet up. We set a date but she doesnt answer her phone so it doesnt happen. A couple days later we email again, I ask if we can talk on the phone, she says “of course! my number is ______, ask for Ada”. But Im too scared to call her cuz I dont know when shes at home or when shes busy or whos going to answer the phone and yell at me because a strange guy is asking for her. As the weeks go by, I realized that I cant just ring her out of the blue. So Im fucked and all alone again.

Met #13 friend that is in town for a few, super fine, its her bday, we party late.  She wants to see the sunrise in a park, none of her friends wanna stay up.  I stay up, go to park with her, we watch the sunrise, make out.  She gives me her phone number, invites me to a party.  I get a txt telling where and when, I get offended cuz I only got a txt, never go, never see her again…

Get to Helsinki. Meet long lost friends. go out to bar, meet many girls but no hope. Go to the club.  Spot girl. Shes cute, out alone, we dance. I try to talk but musics too loud. I repeat myself too many times.  She interrupts me and says “I’m wearing earplugs, let’s dance now and talk later”.

I go to the washroom, come back, never see her again.

Met girl in class, talk to her, exchange emails.  Invite her out to rock night on Tuesday, I never go, see her next class, she asks me why I didnt go, I say that I didnt think it would be fun.  We keep chatting after class is done, we hang out sometimes, I invite her over to my place, put on a song and claim that its the greatest make out song.  Never make a move, we become friends…

My BFF leaves on a jet plane (to Greece from Canada), says good bye and breaks up with his girl. She then tells me to never mention his name again and that nobody cares if she lives or dies… so   i   take a flight to Canada, just to get to hear that she thinks i’m evil for coming to her rescue and that she doesnt want anything to do with me…

Met girl playing tennis, after playing two matches, we lose touch.  I get an email 2 months later saying lets get drinks.  I take a month to reply.  We go for drinks then we go to her place.

She says nothing.
