Re: A whine and complain thread

Well the vast majority of your recent posts are pretty glum. If you're happy, you should present yourself here as being happy, otherwise how the fork would anyone know you're in a good mood! You didn't even mention you had kept up contact with your current love interest. Also good luck with the date.

Re: BLURT thread

Ooh, I had one of those conversations but six months ago. Didn't go anywhere (pout) but they said "thanks for being honest." (Would it have been dishonest to just say nothing and maintain status quo? Maybe only to myself, I guess.)

Re: BLURT thread

I've only once successfully kept a conversation going without a distraction (a board game) to fill in what would otherwise be awkward silences. I like board game dates, which is why I seconded the idea of going to a game shop or something.

lots of Rifftrax (the spinoff of MST3K starring Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett). New Years Eve I left NYC to visit my cousins in Ye Old Rural Middle of Nowhere, and we also watched Rifftrax.

Re: A whine and complain thread

Especially if you're messaging women, they likely aren't going to respond to a man if they're not interested because doing so most often invites harrassment. Ignoring or outright blocking the message, and letting the interaction harmlessly fizzle, is safer for them. That's just how the internet work...

Re: A whine and complain thread

Oh my god, what part of "I have also been alone until age 30+theMonthsThatI'mOlderThanYou until I made a conscious effort to change" went over your head. For serious. You are acting like your personal life is going to flatline and there's nothing you can do about it. Sheesh.

For me it helps to think of constructing a dating profile like communicating in business or other professional contexts: you present the best version of yourself and put negatives in the most positive light possible. For example, an introvert might describe the activities s/he likes to engage in at...

Re: This telephone pictionary is as many as four tens

Ahem. My sister-in-law has passive-aggressively rearranged the curio cabinet while pretending to dust inside. (That's code for: my line has been sent off.) I quite like my thinking ladle! And the booze!

Re: This telephone pictionary is as many as four tens

Ahem. The tchotchke is locked in the curio cabinet. (That's secret code for: I got the pic.) I shall mull it over as I don my thinking cap. And brandish my thinking ladle. And quaff my thinking booze. I do a lot of thinking, is what I'm saying.

Thirty. 3-0. fork me, I'm thirty and I have never been a proper relationship, I'm stuck in a job which I'm starting to hate due to how unappreciated I feel and how rickin'-frackin' annoying our customers are.

You can put me down for filling multiple slots. Oh you're right, that was phrased poorly. Let's just say you can stick me in whatever position you want. That's much better.

I made it through 2 of 3 sets at a concert last night before four 6+ foot tall bros snaked their way in front of me and started dancing with their arms in the air for the rest of the show. That's actually a personal record for me.
