    Now you know how I felt when you called me fat!

    Oh I noticed your sign, it's just that you live way across the pond. Plus, I don't think you'd like it anyway. One, I'm a virgin. Two, I have a very hairy chest, including legs and arms. Three, I have a very large frame meaning that I have very broad shoulders and a large neck because of my bone structure. In other words I'm literally big boned in a sense, yet I'm not fat ironically enough. And since I'm large framed and have musucles I'm sure that's a turn off for you considering you're a lover of j-rocker bodies.

    I'm gonna start a new exercise club in my city.
    Make sure it's not one of those where it's filled with nothing, but heavy body builders. Those people freak me out, plus they end up having more heart conditions when they're older anyway because they feel that the more weight you use to make yourself buff, the better. However, it actually kills your heart in the end. Remember it's not much you do, rather how many you do and how you do them.

    Honestlyyyyyyy....

    Actually, believe it or not, I don't like skinny guys. Yes, it's true. Oh yeah, they're very pretty to look at on nice shiny photos an' all, but I don't like to sit next to some guy and feel that he'd break if I hugged him too hard.

    Remember it's now much you do, rather how many you do and how you do them.
    Aha. I'll be sure and remember that.

    I know I just felt like giving you a hard time about it. It helps me relieve stress.

    Yeah well, the sex would probably still be pretty bad. I mean come on, as they say there nothing is more worse than to have sex with somebody who has no experience what-so-ever, while you do have experience. Also I'm physically inadaqute so that doesn't at all. I guarantee you won't feel anything at all because I'm so small you need a microscope to find it. Mr. Happy is really Mr. Sad in the end. That and like I said I'm hairy, and well we all know how women feel about hairy men. (Shaven not stirred is the saying right?) So I doubt it would be very memorable for you, or even remotely stimulating in the slightest bit. You'll drop me faster than George W. Bush's approval rating going down the toliet.

    Actually, believe it or not, I don't like skinny guys. Yes, it's true. Oh yeah, they're very pretty to look at on nice shiny photos an' all, but I don't like to sit next to some guy and feel that he'd break if I hugged him too hard.
    When I see people like that I think of my best friend. He's a twig yet he can kick your ass because he's so freaking tall. Still I like teasing him by going "eat something". Anyway it still doesn't make me feel any better.

    Aha. I'll be sure and remember that.
    Yeah, I'm sure you will.....

    @Doc - hey, Misa said what do you do to relieve stress aside from ranting (j/k ). I think you sound like a lovely hunk. I like chunky, hairy men 'cos they are more manly, IMO.

    Getting back to the alcohol thing, I think you have to be careful. Nothing calms you like a relaxing drink, but you have to be sure it's not your only de-stresser, and that you don't rely on it. I avoid alcohol as a stress reliever, as I don't want to start down that route.

    Talking with my best friend helps me. Not ranting, just talking with him. He makes me laugh constantly, and that makes me forget about whatever was getting me down or making me stress out. He never fails in lifting my spirits. Never. I'm so fortunate to have him.

    Of course, sex is great for releasing stress, but I was going to stay away from that. Saying that I like sex has gotten me into trouble before...
    You have bewitched me, body and soul...

    I can't believe I forgot to mention talking with friends! Not even talking, but just being with people. I mean, they're like the most important thing in my life an' all..... It's a great way to get troublesome things back into perspective.

    I guess on that note I could say that theater is a good stress reliever! (working on it, not watching it... although maybe watching it is a stress reliever for some people?) Because you have to concentrate hard, and also the physical work involved (hoisting large heavy objects around etc.)... in a similar principle to the 'play an instrument' school of stress-relief.

    Saying that I like sex has gotten me into trouble before...
    Hmmm... I can imagine.

    Something that also helps is deep breathing. Breath and emotion are intertwined WAY more then you think. Breathe deep, it really helps. And don't breathe from the chest, you'll hyperventilate, breathe from the diaphragm. In through the nose, out through the mouth. You should feel your stomach rise and fall with each breath, your chest shouldn't move at all. Again to make sure it's clear DO NOT BREATH FROM THE CHEST it's bad for you. Wanna know why women in the 18th century always fainted? Their corsets only allowed them to breathe from the chest and they would hyperventilate and faint *nods*.
    Yoga helps too 'cause we store stress in our muscles and it helps work it out.

    Whenever I get stressed enough to the point that I actually give a shat, I go through this whole process.

    First, I get overwhelmed with the stress, then that turns into a fierce anxiety. That anxiety eventually mutates into a panicky feeling of hopelessness, and a sharp depression.

    The moment that happens, I get angry about being down, and start getting all heated up, and motivated to solve whatever issues that got me stressed in the first place.

    I tried the whole talking to friends spiel, but that only ends up annoying me, when people try to do the 'I know how you feel' relating thing.

    As for the sex method, I have to disagree with the efficiency of it. When I'm stressed, I cant concentrate on much else, let alone sex, and if I try to focus on something other than whatever got me stressed, I end up getting angry, and eventually somebody walks away from the situation with a bum leg or something.

    Surprisingly simple but very effective thing is laughing your a** out. It boosts serotonin, chemical that puts you in a good mood, in your brain. When I laugh so hard that I get tears in my eyes, I never think about what has been bothering me one bit.

    And, I feel the same way with some of you guys about drinking for de-stressing. Side effects seem much greater in that.

    With smoking. Not very proud of it, but anyway it calms me, to the point i can think clearly. I also talk with my best friend. That helps a lot too. And like misa mentioned laugh is a great way to release stress

    So, when I'm in a really bad mood, music and playing with dogs can help me.
    I also smoke tobbaco a lot.

    Boxing is a great option. Every time I feel some inner tension I prefer to go boxing.
