Did my ex girlfriend break up with me in a fair manner?

Post 321455 by DPJ deleted for the following reason: There isn't a whole lot here that's really an answerable Ask MeFi question; if you have questions about how to e.g. process and move on from a breakup, that'd be a workable thing to regroup and ask about, but just a list of grievances and "was this fair" isn't really something folks can add more to or help you with beyond speculating about the context they don't have for it all. -- cortex

Am I crazy? - Depression lonely alone

Post 320824 by Deal deleted for the following reason: Hey there, I'm so sorry you're going through all this, but this kind of "here's everything" approach doesn't work on AskMetafilter, which is meant for smaller focused concrete questions. This really sounds like something where in-person and longer-term help is what's needed. The There Is Help page has a listing of crisis hotlines (including for texting or online chat) that may be able to help too. -- LobsterMitten

Would extending fertility also extend youth in Human beings?

Post 320752 by fantasticness deleted for the following reason: Heya, there's an interesting and probably somewhat answerable question lurking in here about what we know about the science of fertility and senescence, but as framed this is kinda all over the place and chatty to the point where it's not really a good fit for Ask. -- cortex

Do you think I'm special? - relationship dating

Post 320697 by LakeDream deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is kind of conflating a potential focused personal question ("this is my specific experience, help me understand it") with a much broader generalized chatfilter sort of thing ("what do guys like"), and the while the former is a workable fit for Ask it needs to be reworked to be more just that without the broad, anything-goes framing. Maybe give this another go tomorrow with a more concrete, less poll-the-audience rewrite. -- cortex

Post 320511 by hexenkunst deleted for the following reason: Heya, I'm very sorry you're dealing with this right now, and it may be possible to ask about some of this on Ask MetaFilter but it'll need some editing. If you are feeling suicidal or even just in crisis please reach out to someone trained to help; there is a list of resources on this There Is Help page. -- cortex
