    We're not rich, not by a long shot. They just love me enough to give me most of their money. And thank you for not judging me, there are a lot of people on Facebook who simply can't stand it and they start insulting me everytime they see me.

    Yeah we shouldn't really judge. We may not agree with them but it's not our money, it's your parents'. They can choose what they give you.

    Nice rig! :)

    I feel sorry for you. You may not feel this way now since you are so young, but not being able to take care of yourself without the help of your parents when you are an adult is very depressing, and won't get you far when it comes time to getting a girlfriend and looking to move on in life. No woman wants a man who can't afford to take care of himself, let alone a family without the financial help of his parents.

    That is not love. That is what happens when parents don't have the time or ability to show affection by spending time with their kids and doing things with them, they think giving them money and buying them stuff will buy their child their love.

    I said it before, I don't want a girlfriend. I'm so in love with my computer, I feel that getting a girlfriend would lure me away from it which I don't want.

    Let me re-state what I said above:
    You are what, 14? A lot can change between now and when you get towards the end of high school and college. You don't want to be addicted to your computer forever, it's not healthy.

    OK now that is a little sad I must admit.

    I joke and say computers last longer than my ex girlfriends did but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in having one. Anyway I was so young when I had those relationships it was to be expected. ;)

    True.
    It's not that I don't like girls, I do I just feel afraid of having a relationship. Maybe if I find a girl who likes computers too I will get in a relationship with her :p

    'Life's too short to be afraid' my friend! But what I would say is that usually if you don't look for a girlfriend, one day you'll just stumble across one that you fall in love with.

    My parents have been married for 26 years. Dad's an IT engineer and has been since before he met my mum. Mum has no interest in computers at all, so you don't necessarily need to find one who likes computers.

    I see this thread could be turning into 'Post your girlfriend'... interpret that as you wish! :D ;)

    Well when I was in the 5th grade I liked a girl a lot and kept thinking about her. But I was sad that I wasn't thinking about computers anymore and now I'm glad I don't have any major crushes.

    Seconded this. I'm a Computer Engineer in-training at university, and work as a Software Engineer. Built a $1500+ computer, own a $1200 laptop, Xbox One, WiiU, Xbox 360, among many other game systems, along with an immense collection of games and movies.

    My girlfriend of nearly 6 years has zero interest in almost all technology. She's an artist by talent, and disliked most school, and doesn't care about computers so long as they work when she needs them for something. It's not that she doesn't understand anything about them, she just doesn't care to know the technicalities and what not; Just not her cup of tea or hobby.

    You don't need a woman who likes technology or computers because you do. It might help, but believe me, there's a lot more to life, love, and relationships than just a similar hobby or two, not to mention I'd personally get tired of someone who was as into games as I am. Sometimes I need that nudge to take a break and go live a little, and being with someone who isn't like me, helps that happen.

    "No, I am forever alone. My computer isn't just a friend. The lover I share those static nights with. It is a family member. My child I helped to create. It is my all."
    That? That's well said sir! Kudos to you!

    @Origin Saint Again, I just don't feel up for a relationship. There are a lot of people who suicided because they broke up, I don't want to be one of them. I always despised people who suicide. Again, I do have girls I like, I just have no interest in getting in a relationship with them

    Because I don't want to lose interest in something I spent 4000$ on.

    Millions of people break up every day. Do we hear about millions of suicides per day ALL because of breaking up? No. I'm 18, had two girlfriends, so have broken up twice and I never once contemplated suicide over it! Not going out with somebody because you're scared it might make you suicidal if you break up is just ridiculous - I'm sorry!

    Let's get this back to posting pics of our PCs, unless anybody has any hot women to post? ;) :p (joke)

    At your age I was horny as hell, but had no interest in relationships like yourself, though when a girl gave me a chance I, you know ;) . I spent some good years hanging out with friends having fun, gaming a lot and doing very little (real life) socialising, but then I turned about 28 and I thought where the hell has the time gone, I haven't gotten anywhere. Really time goes way too fast, which will become more apparent to you as you get older and then you start to feel like you are missing out on life as you watch all of your friends moving on and you become more alone. This is when you realise how important it is to share your life with someone who you love and loves you back and between your relationship and work, you realise how unimportant play games is. I gave myself a big kick up the arse a few years ago and now I'm much happier, I'm even getting married in 3 weeks :D.
    Your young and you have time, but what I'm trying to say is that you might not have as much time as you think, so keep your future in mind and don't get left behind.

    OK let's get this back on topic. If you want to talk about girls and relationships there's the Reflect On Life thread. ;)
