1) Let your hosts know in advance that you have limited capacity for social interaction and that you might need to leave early, and let them know what specific kinds of things tend to wear you out. 2) When the time comes for you to leave, briefly refer back to what you told them earlier. At both ti...

I've been taking social dance lessons since about 2004. And dancing is a contact sport, after all. So it desensitized me to platonic/social touch with women pretty well. Today, if I'm at a party or in a dance-centric venue, I think nothing of inviting the nearest friendly-looking woman to dance with...

I feel more sympathy than admiration for kids like these. Their "gift" is usually a curse to their quality of life. First of all, these kids are forced to live up to the "gifted" image. Their parents, knowing they're "smart", demand perfect grades in every subject, all ...

Oh, and I got my vaccine too. Sounds like liberal indoctrination to me. :mrgreen: Maybe so. But now I get to deprive Biden voters of the opportunity to call me a "science denier". I can't be a "science denier" if I got the shot. :D I left work around lunchtime to get my shot, an...

True. Did you read my entire post? Yes, I read it. The gist of it was that people don't become even remotely rational until college, if that. Well, does anyone wonder WHY schoolkids pay so much attention to their classmates? The classmates they wouldn't care if they lived or died. I mean, really, d...

Most of the time people aren’t even paying attention to you, and if they do they’ll forget in less than 10 minutes and go on to the next thing. Don't be so sure! Maybe that's true for adults, but in younger years, and 100% certainly in school, people are DEFINITELY watching your every move and judg...

Is it just me, or does acting strange/weird/unusual---basically, noncompliant with social norms---become more and more socially acceptable as you get older? That is, you get judged less and less harshly for it, and social consequences become increasingly mild. For example, in high school, if you wan...

Marknis wants to live in a place which is not a conservative cesspool. Thus, this thread is of a political nature. Not all conservatism is the same. There's Deep South conservatism, which even I hate, believe it or not; Jesus/Bible/church is very central to it. (Although I could probably fit in eve...

Sturgis is not exactly an “urban” place. It has maybe 7,000 people when there isn’t a motorcycle festival. What would make anybody pick Sturgis? Sioux Falls, in the same state, would be much better. Salt Lake City, Utah, would actually be great for Marknis. It’s a liberal, but not “too liberal” a c...

Minneapolis is not “crime-ridden.” It’s an urban place with problems all urban places have. And what does Biden have to do with COVID-19? Minneapolis used to be a very safe city, with large pockets of art colonies. Now it's basically Benghazi, with Antifa and BLM standing in for Middle Eastern terr...

You're projecting your views onto Marknis which isn't helpful. Dont get me wrong, as someone from a big city, Minneapolis, I know where you're coming from, believe me I do, but if Marknis really wants to find a girlfriend the best place is the big cities whether you like it or not. Or at least a ci...

:o I live in the Bible Belt. It’s all about conformity unless you get lucky and find an entry to the pockets of counter culture. I’ve tried so hard to join them but I am rejected even by them. f**k this whole culture. As bad as the Bible Belt is, liberal big cities are no panacea. Their governments...

Hey Mark :) I thought of you today when I saw this ... https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/cc355/Juliette03/309DDADD-ED3D-4324-9245-68D3E0FC5A15.jpeg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds This is good in principle, but your timing is abysmal. Feel-good messages like this are one of the worst...

You have a long history of saying you want a girlfriend. But you never told us why specifically you want a girlfriend. What's your end goal? Is it wanting to feel loved, without really caring by whom? Is it for sex and other physical intimacies? (kissing, fondling, etc.) Is it to have a guaranteed d...

Just a side thought ... is it really that bad if you change your mind about wanting a romantic relationship? I'm not giving advice on it or looking at her level of potential interest because it was pretty clear where your head was at. But ... Well, if you want to talk on a different potential angle...
