    Fate, like Mojo my bad luck cannot be explained, plus there have been many things in my life that cant be explained by mere coincidence.
    Get it?

It sets them into a certain limit or degree, which is completely false.

    Sure there are a very few limited things you can't control, but the most things i believe are within your own hands.
    Try this:
    Failing with a girl two years ago. Girl ends up with friend.
    Go through two years of soul-searching.
    Get together with girl at expense of friend.
    Lose friend.
    Go through turmoil with girl.
    Lose girl.
    Get girl back.
    Lose girl again.
    Rinse. Repeat.

    i think that sounds more like they dont want to change perhaps.
    i wouldnt really think that would be fate so much as ironic maybe.

    but meh, i dont think there is fate/destiny, i think people just move freely and such, making good and bad decisions with an occasional bit of luck. it would suck if you knew that things were predestined.

    Most of those are all decisions and I can't say you didn't try hard enough, but almost everything you do you have to work for. Things just didnt work out for you two. You wanted one thing, she wanted another. Two conflicting decisions imo. For a couple to be successful, both have to have similar goals right?

    I mean there's just so much more to it, you were kind of broad and i had to kind of be broad in return. Not that i mean it in a bad way or anything...

    It's irony-based fate.
    My fate is ironic.

    -edit-
    Oh, it's not a matter of trying hard.
    In the end, we just sort of accepted the fact that we were doomed to fail.

    Well, I haven't accepted that, yet.

    i guess you could put it that way, but then that sorta makes it seem like you're just making excuses.

    @ vphamv

    exactly. "Fate" is like an excuse for the most part. Its for the weak imo. Those who can't deal with the struggles of life, and need something to pass them by.

    @mojo- yeah, this just seems like you've got answeres for everything. XD
    there could be other explanations, but yours could seems to be limited in a way if you think like that.

    and yes that dam 60 second rule. *shaking fist*

    Well, for me it is a decision in life we make. Fate/destiny is not so linear, they depends on our action in life. Make example like this :
    i have two ways ahead me, becoming a pilot or a cop. (with condition i am blessed better with avionik skill )
    1. a pilot way, i can be a good pilot
    2. a cop way, only a mediocre one.
    So is it fate/destiny i was believing, cause even my self is confused
    LONG LIVE HIME-SAMA. MY LIFE FOR RUMBLANDIA!
