  1. Who are you?

    I know and I don't know why but I've always wanted to be a father. I know it'd be difficult and stuff but it's just something I've always wanted. As I've got older, the feeling to become a father has been stronger every year to the point I feel jealous...not in a nasty way but I have this feeling in my it's something I really want more than anything. I used to be told I should live my life and that I'd have other dreams where I would want to do stuff but honestly, it's never gone. Sounds totally weird, I know, but I can't explain it properly.
  2. Who are you?

    I agree, this thread is awesome. I'm loving learning about different people and @soag, BIG DISNEY FAN HERE TOO and very jealous you got the official Disney Proposal. If I would ever marry, I would propose (or would only accept a proposal- because y'know, 2020 so why can't women propose, right?) at Disneyland! Here's a bit about me. I've posted on the other thread but I've changed since then so here it goes: I'm Darren but everybody calls me Dazz (spelt with two Z's), which is the name I prefer. I'm 30. I live in good old Birmingham. Left-wing and I'm passionate but I also believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I'm not disrespectful about it, like with any subject. I believe that the only way forward is through regular, normal discussions without the need to insult anybody but with social media, it's difficult to maintain a decent discussion. I have OCD and I was embarrassed about it but now I'm not. It's not a "germophobe" one (although I don't like germs and Covid has triggered me quite a few times) but it's more the "checking locks and checking stuff" one. I've learned CBT, which is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and I'm better for it. I have attacks but not as bad as I used to. As many of you may know (or, I love brackets in this post...) I'm a massive self-confessed Disney geek and own most of the films on blu-ray or DVD including Classics, direct-to-video sequels, Disney Channel movies or pretty much anything with Disney on it. If I can't get it on blu-ray because it's not been released here, I have it on DVD. I also collect blu-rays because I adore films and owning them. People see it as a colossal waste of money but 1. I love physical media and 2. It makes me happy and that's all that matters. I would much rather buy something physically and own it rather than stream it or download it if I intend on keeping it forever. Also, it's just really nice to look at. My favourite animated film is Beauty and the Beast (if you didn't guess) and my favourite films are Shawshank Redemption, Rocky and Titanic. My favourite books to read will forever be Harry Potter. I've read either one or all of them nearly every year. I still love gaming. I currently play Fortnite with my mates and we get a lot of Victory Royales without building because we're shit at it, lmao. I have counted and verified this and officially, I have had 14 jobs and used to be sort of known on here as having them and telling you all the stuff that happened to me at work, good and bad. I have lost copious amounts of weight (gained a bit back on from lockdown admittedly) and I'm currently training to be a Personal Trainer, Gym Instructor and Class Instructor as fitness is a new-found passion of mine and I would love to pursue it as a career. I love to read and I love to write. Ever since I have had my new laptop, I have been writing short stories and I've recently written a short horror story to which an author has said it was brilliant but I need to tidy it up a little so that's quite cool. My dream is to become a father and it's a dream I've had since I was young. People always tell me that I'll change my mind when I'm older but here I am, over 20 years later, still dreaming it. I can drive cars and ride motorbikes. I drive but I don't own a bike yet. I'm single...still. I've been on a few dates but we just didn't click. I could write a book on disastrous dates.
  3. I won an award for Positive Member of the Year once and I'm pretty sure I won Sexiest Man of the Year pretty much since this forum began...last one may have been in my head but doesn't make it any less true...
  4. The death of forums

    Maybe advertise it on social media? Use it as a tool by using hashtags related to gaming? As for stuff, we always used to just make topics whether it was dumb or about games or news-related. Maybe doing that would help rather than one mega thread about it? I don't know...
  5. Short Stories and Poems

    I've written something but I've not typed it haha
  6. Questions

    Brilliant! It works! Thanks for the help, @S.C.G!!
  7. The death of forums

    This and one more forum were the only ones I visited. I love this one more though because I actually feel like there's more personality in this one than anywhere else. It's a shame that forums are dying because of Twitter and Facebook but I am so grateful that this one is still here.
  8. Write your own poems and short stories here for anyone to write.

    Right, someone start a Mafia game! I tried to do it before and if memory serves, I think I fucked up? Unless I'm thinking of another game... (I did Harry Potter and the Dark Mark Mafia). I used to love reading the stuff you guys wrote in the writing section. Yes! That's it! I'm doing that!
  10. Questions

    It says "Your chosen signature doesn't meet the guidelines"...did I do something wrong?
  11. Questions

    It's saying I can only upload it for 600x150 (or something) but everyone else has a bigger signature.
  12. Old NE Members

    Nah, fair enough. I know that Mike1988UK changed his name to @LegoMan1031 too. What happened to the Playground here? Has it been deleted? I miss Mafia games! That would've been awesome to do during lockdown tbh. We missed a trick!

    Woah, you have a very good memory, haha. Although I had a genuine reason why I changed it from my actual name to Animal. My 'friends' back then were shitty people and this was the one place I had. Worst thing I did was do that. I changed it to Beast this time because I wanted something fresh. Wait, really? No way. I always put it under my signature for a few months (just like I have now but I've come to realise on a mobile, it doesn't show your signature). Ha, no way! Give me some credit, I had genuine reasons, lmao! Well...not this time but I did before! Thats what it stood for??? No way! 😂 Thats brilliant!
  14. General Movie Thread

    SERIOUSLY?! Woah! It's £8 for Cineworld but that's it. Anything above a tenner, unless it's Gold Class or something special, is bloody crazy! Most I've paid for as a cinema ticket is to see Metallica live and I think that was £15.
