sparkie wrote:I still struggle with this whole liking/disliking thing and I think I have realized just what pisses me off about all of this bullshit with George and Amal. And it is George more than Amal that I am so pissed with.
Back when it first came out about Amal it was 'she is unlike any other girl he has dated, own person, educated, stunning beautiful' blah blah. But best of all she doesn't want anything from him and he knows it. George created all these other girls that 'wanted something from him', how dare they agree to what he wanted
Poor George all these years being subjected to these girls that made him let them use him he really has been hard done by hasn't he.
And then along comes Amal educated ( I wasn't aware that Stacy, Eli, Sarah etc didn't have an education) humanitarian well obviously no one else that passed through Georges life (oops sorry used him) never did one charitable act etc etc.
I am still quite angry with George for never addressing that 'He could have and didn't', his silence has spoken volumes and now I know what it is about Amal that I do not like she has been a silent player in this total lack of respect for his past girlfriends they have been universally insulted by the media and not one stinking word from George. But what Amal has done is not arrogant, confident or anything  else but a calculated manipulative move on hers/and others behalf and in doing so she send the same message to all George's ex's.

Message to both Amal and George:-

Nobody is better than anyone else and as soon as you think you are , you become a lesser person for it.
So Amal needs to wipe that SMUG look off her face she may be his equal she may be perfect for him but the way I see it at the moment she has nothing to be proud of.


Mmm, interesting. Well I did laugh myself silly when he came out with that shirt supporting Timochenko, Amal's client. Didn't he know that the Ukranian people are not all too found of T. Where did T. get all her money from ? He turned himself into a puppydog for Amal, didn't he ? Planet of MEN ruled by an elite of MEN, ...  Laughing

I like Stacy, I even have a soft spot for Monikakaka, I really really really like Lisa Snowdon, who by coincidence has a feature in one of the Sunday Newspaper Supplements ... all about her career and new BF (an actor- very good looking).  It is at pains to say, she refuses to be defined by "that relationship" She no longer talks of George by name, at all. For her sake I hope they drop it now, enough is enough.

What I am trying BADLY to say is that ALL these women made the man who fell in love with Amal, and who Amal fell in love with...All of them contributed to the man that he is now.......

If you like him just the way he is, you should thank them.....

Seems George is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

Who knows if Amal is smug you can't tell that from one or two photos.

Maybe what is really bothering so many here is that there isn't much to find negative about her so there's this feeling of dis- ease and it's messing with your expectations for George.

Bottom line, it's George's life.

He doesn't owe ANYONE here an explanation or a disclaimer whether for Amal or anyone else he dated.

Sure we've had our negative comments about the women he's dated in the past, but for me, it was based on THEIR actions and THEIR decisions often made before they dated George.  Their pasts came back to haunt them.

But to state that you're angry at George or that you hate Amal is really sad to me.   See no one here knows George personally, unless one of his exes is posting here under an assumed name, so he hasn't taken anything away from you.  You never had him.

You, like everyone else here, are a fan.  That's it.  You chose to be his fan.  He didn't come to your house and beg you to follow his life, his career or go see his films.  You made that choice.

The only thing George owes you is a decent 90 minutes or 2 hours for the price of your ticket.  And when he doesn't provide that then you just stop spending your money for his films.

My issues with his past girlfriends had only to do with how their past actions would be perceived in a country with a very conservative religious base.  My opinion always being that it could potentially diminish his credibility.

Amal doesn't seem to bring that type of baggage with her so I wish them both the best. That's all I can do.

If George gets hurt, if Amal gets hurt there's nothing anyone here can do. Let's just wish them much happiness and move on with our own lives. If George getting married suddenly is opening up a hole in your life then you need to reassess your own life and fix that. No one is stopping you from doing just that.

Well I know what you mean a bit more...but sorry I can thank them for having relationships with George but I don't miss them. Stacy has already moved on. Quickly. No hard feelings for both sides as George moved on quickly too. Everything happened in a natural way. Call me indifferent, but I really don't care what happened to all his exes. I've had enough to care about who's with George now and I want to see him happy. Actually I have no feelings for them once they're exes.

Well, I think it's ok to be upset at the marriage news and not to like Amal (agreed, hate is a strong word, but it's a time of shock).

It kind of reminds me of when boy bands break up and then have to set up phonelines to help fans get over it.

Let's have a group hug and together we'll manage. What's that saying? There's many a slaughter between ring and altar? Something like that anyway.

Thank you Katie for recognizing my feelings and the feelings of a number of us out there. I know, for myself, that I knew he was never coming after me. However, it was still fun to fantasize. We all have done it. There is no shame in pretending we were Stacy (MEEE!!!) or another gal. Now, we will adjust to George and Amal. I know I was upset at first, but then it occurred to me the very words I said over and over. "We should respect his choices." Here I am not respecting his choices.

Now, I should point it out. For me and some others, when we say we "HATE" her, it is not the true definition of hate, it is more of an innocent jealousy. I admire this girl and her gumption. I like Stacy better, but he is drawn to her and he seems truly into her, and I will support him, but I am not ready to like her fully yet. I just need some time to adjust to her. This all came so quickly that it truly is a shock to our system. Thank God this didn't appear last weekend when I was trying to finish up my massive amount of research papers trying to get my Masters of Social Work. That would have been a huge problem for me.

I can't help that I am grieving a little bit as some of the rest are, but we will suffer through this and march on to a new day.

Just remember everyone, "ITS GOOD TO BE A GEORGE CLOONEY FAN"

I love you guys for being there to give me somewhere to vent.

I will love George Clooney forever, not because of his good looks, money or even his fame and acclaim. I will love him forever for representing something in my life that I greatly needed. I will still need him as I still deal with the fact that I am a kidney patient facing an uncertain life. I will still look forward to my Clooney flicks, and I may grow to love Amal too. I continue with my mantra, "It is good to be a George Clooney fan."

I wish I could like her but there is something about her that I don't like. Guess it was my first impression of her and first impressions are everything. She maybe a nice lady but there is something I can't shake about her.

@isogotit, I totally agree with you, I didn't care for her from the beginning, also my first impression. She does, in my opinion, come across as arrogant.

Well lucky for all you gals who are calling her arrogant - YOU'RE not marrying her and you can bet your booties, y'all aren't going to be invited to the wedding.

And it's not like you're going to have to spend any time with her to be personally offended by this percieved arrogance!

Can't we just all get along and wish them both well?

For heavens sake, there are so few of us that don't care for her, I'm sure George isn't going to change his mind because we find her arrogant and smug, we are just giving our views about like or dislike.

You Don't have to like someone to respect them, or admire there accomplishments.  I was taught by a B***** of a NUN, but I still thought of her as one of THE most accomplished and progressive ppl I have know in my life.  would I share a taxi with her NO!  Would I want her with me in a crisis HELL YES....

Liking is a sensitive thing.... I'm still not Amal biggest fan, still not sharing the taxi....except in a crisis...

Nobody is forcing any of us up the aisle to marry her, so just keep truckin....

After all this is George's site, not Amals.

ktsue your not a hater hon like me you're hurting bad. I have been trying to hide it from my daughter because they are going to Canada tonight nad if she thinks I'm in rough shape she won't go, she lives next door.

I don't hate Amal and hope and pray they are very blessed in their life together. But it's like I had 2 bad husbands and my faux one just left me with no warning, so trust me I know how you feel. I will pray for all of us tonight, I do everynight but tonight will be special.

But we can rejoice in the fact that George has found his Soulmate. xxx

 Give Flowers Dear Mazy - You have the kindest heart in the world. Give Flowers  Maybe it would be easier come to terms with this if we remember that he chose her because she makes him happy, and that's really all we ever wanted for him - a happy life.

Thank you for your prayers for all of us who are finding this hard to get used to. I will pray for you, too, that your hurt goes away.  I love you
