Online dating, is the weirdest **** ever. In the last two or three weeks I have experienced:

1. A woman getting angry because I asked her what beauty she saw in the world. She then unmatched when I didn't respond quickly enough (I assume)

2. A woman being keen, then when we got to whatsapp, just decided to randomly drop it

3. Today I managed, from start to finish to chat to a very beautiful woman, asked her out on a date, we were going to go on a walk, went to whatsapp and she started getting weirdly jealous about my best friend (who is a woman). Red flagged out of it.

4. A woman who matched, and told me she couldn't date me because I was too good looking.

5. Lots of ghosting, and fatigue

Its fun, in a sortof weird way, I need to get back to regular life though.
I was thinking of signing up again...your post is a reminder of what comes with it though, lol

I'd look around for a decent car that you're able afford without taking out a loan, and then try to avoid paying full coverage. And I'd also just let um' gossip.
Yeah I am likely just going to try to get one where I can afford a full payment out the door. Insurance will probably be on the pricier side since I don't really have too clean of a driving record. Gossip = Triggers = Problems :(

What's with this clubhouse app thingie :con
suddenly exploded and I see people talking about it everywhere.
not sure if it's a local thing or a global thing though.
can't even try the app since it's by invitation only.

I saw a thing that said people should set their heat at 68 degrees in the Winter to save energy. IMO, that's insane! If it gets any cooler than about 75 it starts to feel uncomfortable. And in fact, a couple weeks ago, our furnace stopped working for a couple days and the temperature dropped to about 70 pretty fast (but didn't get much colder because I guess the place is well insulated). And yeah. 70 degrees is noticeably uncomfortable without socks and a long sleeve shirt. Which I have never liked wearing socks unless I'm wearing shoes as well. When I'm just relaxing, having socks on my feet is too uncomfortable.

Yeah I never keep up with new mostly for phone social apps. I'm mostly stuck in 2010-2012~ technologically (and in other ways.)

Yeah, lol, a lot of social media makes me feel old.

This one seems like an audio-only app though, which seems like a nightmare for me, lol. Not sure how anyone can prefer that over text. :roll

:lol I started reading this (since I don't know what fahrenheit temperatures are like) thinking: "oh yeah, I like it nice and toasty too, idk how people can bear cold houses". And then I did the conversions! It's the 70F in my room right now, I'm in a full winter uniform of a wool sweater and thick woolen socks.

I usually keep the thermostat somewhere in that general range. Not necessarily to be precious about energy consumption, but just because it's seems unnecessary. I'd rather it be a little bit chilly than stifling. I just wear sweaters and carry around blankets. lol (I can't stand wearing socks casually either. Sensory thing.)

J, on the other hand, moved here from a generally warmer climate and he is a giant baby about "cold." So the thermostat volleys throughout the day, depending upon who's home doing what. :lol He'd keep it at a solid 80 degrees if left entirely to his own devices. :p

I don't know what I'm doing with my life right now. I feel lonely but also don't feel like talking to anyone or seeing anyone. Also that I should work on my master degree's thesis which I've been procrastinating for months.

That does seem like it would be too cold. If it makes you feel comfortable to have it warmer I wouldnt really care about it saving too much unless you can't afford to have a higher bill. But that would suck. :blank

So you're not a socks person either huh? lol I like going barefoot so I'm always like that around the house. So much better. Plus I dont want dirty socks. But mainly cause I just dont like socks on my feet.

Speaking of the weather, I only wore my pjs like twice this Winter so I've been wearing shorts all Winter. The heater has been on almost constantly this Winter so I would burn up and have to turn my AC on. Its been making the lightbill a bit high but screw burning up. It feels like 90 degrees with the heater on constantly.

All the years I spent shaking my head at friends that were with women they’d say they liked but annoyed them regularly...it rarely seemed to me that getting laid was worth all the other BS/nonsense that came with it...now here I am spending time listening to rants about things I want nothing to do with, don’t care about, or don’t know anything about, helping her or doing her favours, dealing with the fallouts of all her various roommates, breathing in her cigarette smoke, knowing full well she’s crazy(no exaggeration) & all because I got laid...her being the gal next door obviously has a lot to do with it, not like I can just see her here or there, & she can be so cute with her dogs, & her pups love me, & she can amuse me sometimes...but it terrifies me the things she knows about me now, & the way she can just read & crucify me if she wants to...I’ve never been keen on being vulnerable with anyone on purpose, anxiety/depression feel like exposed vulnerabilities anyone can cut me with already...yet here I am, just like all the friends I shook my head at, ranting about a woman that is so different from me, that annoys me regularly, & that I like...no clue if we are couple, or just friends with benefits, how long it’ll last...it’s all just chaos, confusion, & commingling in a haze of herb & hooch

It's crazy, but hilarious. Actually really enjoying it. Try this, btw:

"what's the most beautiful thing you have ever seen or experienced"
How they respond tells you a lot. And they love it
