I will do a little experiment.
I have taken one very old post from one member so that I can translate it.
The reason why I am choosing romantic post is because it is simple but complex from the position of grammar.
Also I would not mind if others translate this to their native language.
I have deleted some personal information but the post is almost intact.
Personally I can translate this to Croatian directy so translation will be distored but more correct.
Ok, see here's the deal.... *sigh* Didn't expect to go into this but what the hell....
I was really really interested in this girl about some time ago. We went a couple times. She broke it off with me, saying that she felt sorry for me because, if we started something serious, I'd be stuck with someone who could communicate on the same level I'm used to (apparently she had some emotional baggage).
So she ended it. I was really sad but respected her feelings and tried to bury me feelings for her by avoiding her. Well.... apparently I wasn't doing something/reading something right because she calls me out one night and says that she wished I had hung in there for her and persisted in pursuing her.
And how was I supposed to get that??
So we end up giving it a second shot. During our time off I had set up a meeting with a friend of mine. A girl who had become really good friends with our family. My parents love her dearly and think of her as a daughter. So I tell my SO that I had made plans to visit this girl. I was going to go visit her, stay at her place one night and come back the next day. She also lived with her mom, older brother, and sister. So it's not like it'd be just us two.
So. My sort of-girlfriend says, 'fine go. I won't stop you.' I told her I wouldn't go if she didn't want me to but that I told her about my visit so that I'd be up front with her. She insisted, 'Go'. Three days later she breaks up with me again, saying that she has no feelings for me.
All that after she was the one that wanted to get back together??? I just don't get it at all. So here I am, a few years later, still trying to figure out what happened. That's why I started this thread.
So here is how I actually "sound".
U redu, evo u ?emu je stvar... *uzdah*. Nisam o?ekivao u?i u ovo ali zašto ne?
Bio sam zaista zainteresiran u ovu curu prije nekog vremena. Izašli smo par puta. Prekinula je s menom, rekavši da joj je žao ako smo zapo?eli nešto ozbiljno. Zbog ovoga bi zapeo s nekim ko nije u stanju komunicirati na nivou na koji sam navikao. (o?igledno je imala emocionalne prtljage).
Stoga je prekinula. Bio sam zajsta tužan ali poštovao sam njezine osje?aje.
I pokušao spasiti svoje izbjegavaju?i je. Ali... o?igledno nisam nešto dobro pro?itao jer me nazvala jednu no? s naumom do obnovi vezu.
Kako bi trebao reagirati na to?
Probali smo još jednom. Tijekom vremena dogovorio sam sastanak sa starom prijateljicom. Ta djevojka je postala vrlo dobra prijateljica moje obitelji.
Moji roditelji so je voljeli kao k?er. Stoga sam rekao partnerici do planiram posjetiti ovu djevojku. Trebao sam oti?i na samo jednu no?. Djevojka živi sa svojim majkom, bratom I sestrom. stoga nije da ?emo biti sami.
Stoga, partnerica mi kaže "idi, ne?u te zaustaviti". Rekao sam joj da ne?u oti?i ako ona to ne želi I da je na njoj odluka. nakon tri dana prekinula je samnom opet jer da nema osje?aja prema meni.
I to sve nakon što je pokušala obnoviti vezu. Ja to jednostavno ne shva?am?? Stoga evo me ovdje par godina kasnije, pokušaju?i shvatit situaciju. Zato sam zapo?eo ovu temu.
