  1. I would not, however, suffer the rest of my days having not lost you.

    I would, however, suffer the rest of my days having lost you.


    remove the 'nots' as there are two, its a double negative, they cancel each other out.
     
  4. Huh?

    I'm still confused.

    My friend said this to me...
    I said he'd suffer alot if I am in his life, and he said this;

    Yes, I'd rather suffer for the rest of my days than lose you. I would not, however, suffer the rest of my days having not lost you.

    Maybe they mean that they wouldn't suffer if they didn't lose you? They might not actually think that having you in their life would make them suffer at all...

    I think.
     
  6. It's still confusing.
    He's too mature.

    I'll ask him when we speak again.

    Just has confused me.

    i told you sarah, use of two negatives in a sentence (not, no, un) cancel each other out.

    example:

    I am not not well

    Think about it. Not well = bad
    I am not bad
    I am good


    Yes, I'd rather suffer for the rest of my days than lose you.
    You make me suffer but id rather suffer than be without you

    I would, however, suffer the rest of my days having lost you.



    It means 'dont leave me, however bad things are now i want you in my life'
     
  10. :/

    Like that makes me feel any better knowing I make him suffer.

    I wouldn't work off of how you're inturpretting it. Expression isn't math, no matter how close they come. Even if it's clearly meaning one thing, the person saying it could have meant something entirely different. If you were in an english class and that was an english question, then yes, but this is from a chat or a conversation, and even though we tend to follow rules, human expression rarely submits entirely to them.

    The only way you'll find out is to ask him. We all will take it how we take it, and to be honest, it's out of context. You are right to just ask him Sarah. Assumptions and trying to analize something without knowing someone is very difficult, you usually spiral off in your own direction.

    Yeah... lots random info in there eh? Just ask him :) Better for everyone.
