I was just reading through all the comments that people were making in response to my blogs. I'm asked to take some time to comment on the episode weekly. I realize that every week I have found myself directly or indirectly defending myself and my relationship (this blog being no different). Dramatic realationships are great TV and kinda like a car wreck on the side of the road that you can't look away from. My intention in the last blog was to sincerely address what has taken place up to this point and specifically in the last episode: including why I've reacting to Lina the way I have, a bit more incite into what attracted me to her and my feelings put into words that may sometimes escape theTV screen.
I wanted to post this blog before the next episode because I never addressed viewers comments....maybe this is the medium, maybe not, but far be it for me to hold off for fear of additional criticism. I have read every single comment that was made since the frist episode aired. I would like to thank you for taking the time to comment with your opinions and real life experiences. Some comments speaking to unhealthy relationships they were in that mimic mine, some telling me to RUN and some actually saying love comes in all different packaging, that we should hang in. Quite honestly I pride myself on making my own judgement calls-and not letting people interfere in my life whether friend, foe or otherwise; but only an ignorant person ignores others input and past history altogether. In fact, I personally used a quote that someone included in their comment - the definition of insanity.
It was pretty sad when she told you that you had lost the baby, I felt for her because it must have been really difficult. Maybe what you say about your relationship is true and we only get to see those dramatic moments when she cuts up your clothes or breaks stuff, but I don't know that relationship seems too stressful. I hope that since the show you two have worked on your relationship or been honest about the fact that it's going nowhere.
Hi george, I had to write on your blog because I've had the 'roller coaster' relationship still am. But I have to say I do not respect anyone who aborts a baby and comes and lies to you. She called her mother on the phone on national television and said she was going to take a pill to abort the baby. I've had a tough relationship and financial hardships and still became a young mother no matter how bad it got I kept that baby. She lies constantly to you out of experience they never change it will turn your life upside down! Get out while you can. I truly wish you the best I think your a good person.
I understand when you say that the viewer is not seeing all aspects of Lina. But the parts we do see of her are simply hideous. My husband and I have drama in our lives too, but we NEVER treat each other or talk to each other like Lina does to you. I truly hope that you can rid yourself of this 'immature' woman and find happiness elsewhere. Understandably, you are not perfect either, but she is not a nice person (and not very attractive either). Good luck to you!
First of all, I think you are a great and good looking man! I am amazed at your girlfriends behavior, she treats you like crap. Maybe you need to get another sorah!! Hint I think your girlfriend is simply HUNGRY and all her angers goes into you because you are so sweet!! Get over her you will find a great woman!! She is hungry, maybe if she hate some food she would be so angry!! BTW, you and Hardy are the HOOOOOOTTTEST on the show, oh so is Katrina's hubby...I can not for the life of me understand why she wants to get a divorce they are gorgeous together.
Good luck! and please find a woman to cherish you! you seem like an amazing guy.
Your girlfriend Lina is a hot MESS. Wow! I can't even imagine being able to deal with that. Good Luck!
I hear what you're saying, but actually when you reach a certain level of emotional maturity, relationships get easier, some relationships are learning relationships are long term. We the viewers don't see everything, but we see enough. I feel like your the type of person that the more people tell you not to do it, the more you'll push for the relationship.
Good luck, I would be happy to be wrong about the two of you.
There are support groups for battered men, I hope you find one and that they can help you gat back on a sane life. Having someone shred your clothes and hit you does not stop. All the best.
Well I don't own any business and my name is not plastered all over the television screen but I am a kind hearted and considerate person. I believe you (George) are adorable and deserve so much better.
Lina is a lucky woman and if I had you I wouldn't screw it up and neither should she.
Just my opinion , Having a baby is not a miracle , by no means . Raising a child to make them upstanding adults is the miracle . I can relate with your relationship in many ways when I was 19 years old ! I think both of you need some soul searching and growing up to do before even considering having a child .It takes maturity and respect for yourself to have a mature healthy relationship . And if monies are the main focus in your life right now , you won't have time to nurture a relationship . Might as well beat a dead horse . Sincerely, Bridget Pugh Houston , Texas
YOUR A NICE GUY AND FALLING FOR THE WRONG THINGS IN THAT NIGHTMARE GIRL. SHE IS NOT A NICE PERSON BUT YOU LIKE THE DRAMA. I LIVE IN SOBE AND KNOW YOUR CROWD YOU DESERVE THE CRAP THAT GOES WITH IT IF YOU STAY WITH HER. MY FAMILY TOLD ME AFTER I DID WHAT YOU DID FOR YEARS NO MORE RUSSIANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh George, well if being treated like crap makes you happy then that's all that matters. Good luck with that crazy relationship, because you will need it.
George i think that you deserve someone is very nice,gentle, and lovable.. I feel like you are dating Lina to feel a VOID or shall i say an EMTYNESS that is in yiur heart.. I think you regret making mistakes in your past relationship with Sorah.. And you see how happy she is and yu just want the same thing :-) :-)
Oh, George Please say you have come to your senses, Lina is not good for you or your soul! You have to know tht she is lying to you about things? I would have automatically questioned if the baby was mine or not. I don't know how you put up with such a voilatile relationship, you and her deserve something that does not destroy you, believe me I know. I was in a destructive relationship for 12 years and you have to own up and release yourself from it, yes it hurts and you will miss that person but you have to move on. I think what you really miss is the chaos, arguing etc, and you get scared because you have removed yourself from the equation, but in time you will feel better. I wish you happiness because I do think you are a great person and you have so much love you can give someone, just PLEASE find that right person because it is not Lina, I mean she lied to you about losing the baby real in fact she took a pill for gosh sacks, and Ithink that she did it to hurt you even more. Stand up and demand respect because we all deserve that, God bless you in the search for happiness.
Hi George love the show and believe that Lina is worth to love .(deep inside she is a good loving person ..... so don't give up on here ) best of luck to both of you
even your friends says that ur relationship is unhealthy. lina brings the drama = entertainment! a baby's life shouldn't be brought into this.
Hi George! You sound like me when I used to make excuses for my abusive boyfriend who I was with for 6 years...she sliced up your clothing..that is beyond relationship fighting/conflict. Like you I would just ignore all the red flags over and over until that's all that was left, red flags and nothing else..you guys have no solid foundation for a stable relationship
George, you can do so much better then Lina! There are tons of girls around Miami ... look for one who isn't such a headache!
Hard to know how much of this is "made for tv" - but in real life there is no room for drama. I think you thrive on it as much as does Lina and that is sad. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and anticipating a different result. It is not for me to say what you should do, but I can tell you - in life peace at home is the most prized possession.
I'm sorry that Lina lost the baby.. Things always happen for a reason and hopefully for the best. I will reply to the comment you made on your blog about Lina being a hard working woman.. that does not have anything to do with your relationship with her.. One thing is being a hardworking person and another being in an abusive relationship... I think Lina is taking you for granted.. I just hope you listing to your friends specially to Hardy.. he seems to giving you great advises.
Hi George, You had the look my husband did when I told him I was pregnant. My male co-worker best described it as, "my life flashing before my eyes." Having a baby is a huge deal and a change of lifestyle. I think that Lina imagined your reaction differently and didn't see that you were also going through a series of emotions. Like you said it was a communication issue. Everyone comments on your relationship with Lina, but all things aside, only you and Lina know the true inside and outs of your relationship. With that said, best of luck in your relationship.
Hardworking does not equate to emotionally healthy enough to be in a stable relationship. To be involved with an individual who cuts up clothing (do adults really do this?), tells lies about her location and whether or not she had a pregnancy,abortion/miscarriage is beyond questionable to me ....most people would view that as a huge red flag and hit the road (as they should).
Most people work hard to avoid drama not to stay involved with it. I believe that at your age you have been around the block enough times to know that passion alone does not equate to a successful relationship.
I realize that when two people are as passionate as George and Lina, everyting is passionate, even their arguments. What I can't wrap my head around is the disrespect for one another. You can aregue passionately but lose the disrespect for one another..the f*** you mentality. That is not how two people in love should treat one another....because let me tell you, if you don't have true respect for one another, how could you possibly have true love for one another? Could you really love someone you don't respect?
I hope you can get away from that toxic relationship. It's is very unhealthy and I am sure you could find someone you could build a life with and be happy with. I think your girlfriend is pathetic and you keep going back to her because you feel sorry for her. You need to think about what you want in your life. Youth flies by very fast and sooner than you think you will be 50 and asking yourself "why". Please do not waste anymore of your time on her. She is not worthy.
George, I think you should get out of the danger zone. Imagine if you did have a child with her, and the baby was exposed to all that drama and fighting, how do you think that would effect your child ?
You can make up all the excuses for her, but the fact is she's using you. And if you dig deeper into her past you'll see that she has used other men to get to the so called "success". That's the Russian way.
Thank you for your input on your relationship, and you are so right that it only matters how you feel about yourself~ A suggestion ,,,you may want to pick up a book or two on co-dependency. Havin a blast watching all of you down there in "HOT" Miami, keep up the good work~
i understand u. i think u need to know something what u do in life u pay it back down here. i know ur in love lina but she is need help and u do too . it not heathly what u guys do that . if u guys every one to have kids u can't act like this maybe that why god send u guys a sign with what happien with baby it sad but u guys need to get stuff together frist and see if u guys are still going to be together or break up for good.
Hello there! Love watching the show and I'm going to throw my two cents in to the "LINA" situation or should I say relationship. As crazy as it sounds I like like you or what I see anyways. But Lina needs some professional help with her anger issues and emotional out bursts. With that being said you aslo need to deal with unresolved issues and feelings about your past. Talking about Sorah by the way. I think you and Lina care about eachother with a "passion" but that doesn't mean that you belong together. If all else fails just sleep with one eye open just to be safe! lol
I think that Lina is a poor imitation of one of Checkhov's heroines. But to each his own. . .
I'm sorry that you lost the baby. I've been there and I do understand just how horrible it feels.
Oh George, how you defend your relationship with Lina in every blog... But every time the camera shows your face, you look tense, distracted, preoccupied, and not happy. A big contrast to the relationship between Sorah and Gonzalo. These two look happy and treat each other with respect. Also, why does Lina never come with you when you meet with your friends at the hotel?
george your a really sexy guy you deserve someone better who will apreciate you. Lina is not the one for you every time you have a problem with her you run to sorah. When you do that all your telling sorah "is im glad i left him alone".Even though i dont know you i wish the best for you and if not anything for you to be happy on tv you look like you dont wana be atyour own house find true love please
I agree with you when you said we have all been in a relationship that is driven mostly by passion. But the problem is I think I was in my early 20's. You have to grow up and think for the future and long term. I am sorry you lost the baby but I have to agree with Hardy you doged a bullet. You can not have a solid family if the main emotion that drives your relationship is passion. By the way, usually when you get the feeling that someone is lying to you they usually are. There has to be alot more than working and passion. I hope one day you find someone who could really make you happy, because you don't look very happy most of the time.
George... eventhough you may think that you and Lina can work things out you can't... As a Russian woman... I saw the episode where she was talking on the phone with her mom when you walked in and the way she talked about you to her mom was not like that of someone in a loving and committed relationship... Ultimately it is your decision and your friends can't help you make... they don't like with you and don't see every aspect of the relationship... You didn't dodge a bullet with the baby... I know how you feel.. I lost my first baby with my husband... it was difficult for us both... You have to believe that what happened was ment to be for a reason... Everything happens for a reason... Be in a relationship where the woman that you love ... portrays that to her family especially her mother... I know I'm Russian and what my mom thinks is very important to me... That's our culture... Don't lose focus of your goals... And move on from Sorah... It's ok get over it... Thats life...
Dude you are living in some fantasy world.. every one of your friends say the same exact thing about Lina.. I think you just enjoy Lina's drama and crazyness.. I would be interested to see how you would handle a more stable relationship.. could you?
Wow George, you're blog this week was really sad. I've been judging you a bit... because you chose your partner based on shallow qualities and then you're surprised when she turns out to be really shallow and has very little to offer you besides the sex. But that's why you chose her! So what's the big mystery, you know? Your tone in your blogs is very sad and has a genuine victim tone to it. You are a victim of abuse by this woman and yet, you defend her because she works??? So that makes her abuse ok? Imagine having a partner that works and has a great career and doesn't abuse you. Can you even imagine that? Are you that hypnotized by her sexuality, really? Really???! You obviously feel you're not worthy of having someone in your life that would be nice to you and respect you. But you DO deserve to be respected, George! You really need to get out of this abusive relationship. You can't see or maybe you refuse to see what EVERYBODY else can see so clearly.
George, I think things happen in life for a reason. I'm very sorry you lost your baby but you have to think you and lina are not in a stable relationship. She does not respect you calls you many ugly names. Once a person disrespects and lies there is no relationship. Some people find it hard to move on in life but you have to put your self first. You seem very inhappy and when you get rid of lina you will feel down but also you will have relief. BE STRONG.. And by the way your hot xoxoxoxo
PLEASE stop trying to justify her bad behavior!!!! She is a crazy woman and Hardy was right you need to get away from her before she ruins you!!! You are a very handsome man and you could do better! Try an American girl! Love, Valerie
why are you doing this to yourselves? u both need to grow and maybe come back to the relationship in a year or two ...you said yourself she's like a drug to you...say no to drugs then!
i find it interesting that you say it doesnt matter what anyone else says about your relationship because your actions speak louder than your words. the problem is you keep involving everyone in your relationship. thats why they get upset because you only share the drama and the bad.
OMG- she said "Get your ass in the car and come pick me up" and you did. Helloooooo!!! Are you kidding this relationship is so one way. You are trying so hard because you messed up your last realtionship but really it's time to move on.
I feel like you don’t even know what you want, what kind of conversations you have with this person if she doesn’t even speak correctly, how you can build something when you don’t understand what she saying, I think you making excuses for your self constantly to cover your past or what you did in your past.
