|Reviews for My Boyfriend Makes Me Feel Inadequate|

Aw, I felt for Craig at the end there, he was kinda the last to know.
I loved the part with Kieran chasing after Tyler and then holding him and asking him if he wanted him to let go, really touching:) I'm glad they're back together.
"...the choppy grey waves of the river." really sets the scene at the beach, I could really picture it.
(your tenses switched a little round that point;))
Really enjoyed this update. And hey, 'glittering silence' makes perfect sense to me, I like that;)

I love this chapter! Ah, when Kieran came walking towards them and Taylor saw him... that was soo good! I love that they are together again, and I think it was good for Taylor to finally come out. He feels stronger already.
Looking forward for the next chapter. It's always a bit sad when a story ends, but I like it too, because then you have the whole story. Update soon :)

It's sad that you can't update as often as you did before anymore, but it's cool that there are so many exciting things happening in your life :)
Anyway, I liked this chapter and I think I like Craig more every time he shows that he is a real friend.

Okay, first off: I'm so happy for you! I know what you mean about having to renegotiate how much time to devote to reading/writing, since for me, it can definitely expand to fill however long I need it to, and I miss it when I'm not around. Anyway, good luck with the new job and roommates! It's always exciting to start a new chapter of life.
As for the story, this chapter was really good. The tension was white-hot and man, there was this one line...I'm too lazy to go find it...about how it would be worse if Tyler's friends WEREN'T ticked about his outburst. I know that feeling. It's so lonely and you feel selfish but hurt all at once. It sucks. You wrote it really well, as usual.
I'm really excited to see where you end up taking this story, and I'm patiently waiting for more! :)

Oh depression, how it warps your mind. It'll be okay Tyler, even if you don't understand why all of a sudden bothing feels like it has any meaning in your life anymore. You'll figure it out. :)
Congratulations on the job dear author. :)

I like the rain setting in this chapter. It's very fitting with Tyler's state of mind. I'm glad for Craig who is a true friend.
Good to hear that you have a job you love and new roommates! Exciting new chapter in your life, I bet.

I really enjoyed this chapter, all that rain dude! I really felt Tyler's loneliness/depression was intensified here, how he feels he is on the outside, when really it's him closing the door on everyone.
'He didn't want to know if he'd hurt anyone's feelings or, worse, none at all.' I love this line, for me that really says a lot about how he is feeling.
'He was having an internal struggle, trying not to cry in front of Craig. It was titanic.' I love this too.
Anyway. It was worth the wait. You're awesome:)

I don't like Tyler's dad, or his so called friends, except Craig. Ok, maybe he shoudn't have shouted what he did to them, but it's so obvious that he doesn't feel good and they just "hates his guts" instead of trying to help him or ask what's wrong. No real friends to start with, it sounds.
And his dad, why would he force his son to listen to boring stories from work? I thought he spoke to his wife.
Poor Tyler. I hope things will get better for him soon. It's so sad to see him so depressed. I hope he will be brave enough to take what he wants (Kieran) soon.

I really like this story. _ That little author's note about literary detectives made my day.
| heyitsstupidme 8/28/12 . chapter 10
This story is really good and well written. I like the writing-style and that I can read more than the feelings of just one person. I also like the poem in this and the last chapter. I'll just read your other stories now :)

Ah, a little slow on the reviewing again. I don't feel sharp. I love that poem you put at the end.
The scenes with Craig, first with Tyler and then with Kieran were so effective. Oh, I really felt Tyler's pain there, and Craig's.
I have mixed reactions to that therapy scene. Nicely written, well shown with Tyler's responses. I'm glad it has helped him.
I find I can't really think that badly of Neil, though he does pull on some strings when our sympathies are with Tyler. He's just a good player. Kieran just doesn't quite realise the gravity of his compliment there for us readers emotion wise. Oh, feelings!
I just scrolled back up for a second and accidentally read 'stubborn road' instead of 'suburban road'. I read it correctly on the first read through. Ah, I like it when I get interesting accidental skim-reads like that. It's amusing.
Looks like we're just left with some reconcilliation and tying off. *holds breath in anticipation*

And how is Kieran going to reach out to Tyler without really knowing what is going on? I'm glad Tyler's friend Craig has noticed something is wrong, even if he can't name it. Better than being oblivious.
| PenguinHearts 8/20/12 . chapter 10
Really, really good chapter! Keep writing! :DDD
| seventhswan 8/20/12 . chapter 10
oh good! Craig and Kieran working together! I really like that idea.
But also, I like the idea of Tyler realizing that he has to help himself. That he has to open up and allow people like Craig and Kieran (and Kieran? Hmm. I actually...I mean, maybe Tyler just needs friends right now? And idk if Kieran could handle that. But he loves him, so maybe he could...) in and that not everyone is out to get him.
I love love loved the psychologist scene. That was just so perfect and great. It helped me understand Tyler's depression even more. guh.
Okay, as usual, I can't wait for more! :)
| seventhswan 8/20/12 . chapter 9
oh my god. When Kieran was talking about whether or not he'd ever admit to having loved Tyler, that just. I just. I can't even, man. I know that feeling where it's like, you're so in love with someone in the moment, and then the farther you get from it, you start to wonder how real it was, and how that's sort of the most honest and dishonest you've ever been. anyway. whatever. You captured that really well.
Also, I'm so glad that Tyler is hopefully going to see a therapist. I just want him to get on the road to feeling better. At this point, I care about him more than the romance element. Whether he ends up with Kieran, Craig, or alone, it doesn't matter. I just want him to be more healthy. :(((
