I feel horrible whenever I lose... Especially when I'm trying my best. It gets at me for days! Anyone else like this? And can someone offer some words of advice to help cope with it?

Try these out for size:

a) remember: it is only a game
b) you can learn more from losing than from winning
c) by definition, a game is supposed to be fun
d) winning or losing in no way defines you in any way that is important
e) in every game someone has to win or lose
f) no matter how strong you get, there will always be others that have greater skill, experience, and natural talent
g) learning to lose gracefully is almost as hard as learning to win gracefully

Do not be afraid to slow down, be careful not to stay

But we also like to win!
There's time when we feel bad about losing,i do feel bad when im losing especially to cheaters or someone whose not that good as i am.

First of all it's very logical question,and i gave logical answer.

I don't usually feel bad about losing, only to you.

I don't feel bad at all, when anyone loses you gain skill. So basically a loss is a good thing. It's only a game everyone should have fun win or lose.

That's one of the things I've come to love about go. Losing isn't as disheartening as in other games. When I lose, it means I got the chance to see what strategies fail, and I got to see moves I may never have seen before.

Additionally, if there was a lot of back and forth and maneuvering in a game, I could care less if I win or lose. The strategy and back and forth is what makes it awesome.

well i dont feel bad and i feel sad. im just a beginner of go, so im not as much as for a crying baby unless my skill as pro. if your crying over a lost of go game that means you are good player.

lvl 0 : play 100 games 90% lost
lvl 1-3 : play 100 games 70% lost
lvl 4-6 : play 100 games 50% lost
lvl 7-10 : play 100 games 30% lost

your lvl comes form lost games and study/ex.

losing is horrible. i lost once and couldn't face going on flyordie.com for weeks, let alone playing the game. i totally know how you feel. i eventually got up the courage to return to the site, and then played the game. it felt really good to conquer my fear of losing. keep your chin up.

Losing should never bother anyone. Unless you lose to Liam, of course!
