    Ah man. The Friend zone isn't really a real thing is it? I've never really been in it with a girl I fancy. I thought it was just something salty guys said. Surely the more you get to know someone, you'll know more clearly if you're attracted to them or not? Can you lose attraction for someone because of being friends? Aaaahhh

    It is my understanding that the friend zone is a concept made up by aspiring pickup artists to explain why someone might not want to tear off their clothes and sleep with them after getting to know them first rather, than a real thing. I have never gone out with someone who didn't befriend me first!

    Thanks so much again, Vash. Those have become the most incredible words of comfort for me now.

    I know a lot of people dislike the term or see it as sexist or whatever, but I feel like it's a pretty neutral term and that everyone (or at least everyone single) has people in their "friendzone". To me it's just friends who belong to the gender/s (and perhaps age group) you're open to relationships with but for whatever reason you wouldn't actually ever be interested in romantically.

    Maybe it's just me being my usual blunt and harsh self, but there are certainly people I would class as being in my friendzone because while I get along with them fine and I think they might be open to a relationship with me, I don't find them physically attractive or interesting enough. So if I have one, I think it's fine for other people to have one and put me in it as well.

    I got followed on twitter today by some American Jesus Trucking company. As far as I can tell I have nothing to do with any of these things. I might be able to understand if some of the other people they had followed were random but they all appear America / Jesus / Trucking related.

    Twitter is strange.

    The 'scattergun' approach to social media marketing! Follow all, and see who is naive enough to be flattered. One can only wonder how profitable the practice actually is.

    I've had some really bizarre people follow me on Twitter before but nothing that odd.

    Why do UKIP keep getting so much air time in this election!? They don't have a single MP and are on course to keep it that way after this election. Yet they get more air time than the Greens. It's a ******* joke.

    Edit I was watching the last leg the other night and host said that the parties get airtime by how well they did at the last election and apparently ukip nearly 4 million votes so that's why there getting so much airtime

    Just wanted to say that my thoughts go out to all those involved in the Manchester Arena Bombing last night. Such a sad state the world is in right now... and targeting somewhere which is bound to have a younger audience too. It's a disgrace! Well done you bastards, you must be so proud!

    I live near Manchester and I've already found some of my friends and families were at the event, or had someone they loved there. Fortunately they have come away with minor cuts and bruises. Same can't be said for others though.

    There are no words...

    Absolutely sickening attack that was clearly targeting families & children. As a Mancunian I've seen several incidents down the years including the IRA bomb. This is far worse, I really feel for all the people caught up in this, my heart goes out to them.
