office-space-darth-vader  If you have not checked out Captain Awkward, I command you to do so now.  CA is a great place to learn about the difficulties people encounter in life and how to deal with them/help others deal with them.  From the Darth Vader is tricksy Hobbit thread I gleaned this quote:

“One of the most heartbreaking truths is that feeling love, hearing all the words you’ve ever wanted to hear someone say to you about love, having the most intense sexual chemistry, being able to stay up all night and have long, deep, intense conversations about the things in your heart do not necessarily mean that you can build a happy life with someone. They do not necessarily guarantee that the person who generates all those feelings will be kind to you and treat you as you deserve. ”

Ouch.  But then again, who said reality was all fun and games?
