Sailmaking and woodworking, are you working on building a boat?

Not at the moment. But I have previously. I studied boatbuilding for two years.
I work as a rigger, so it's part of my job, and it's my special interest. Also ropemaking and various rope-work.

I'm right about 6 feet I guess, 182 cm.
I don't really se how that would matter.
If I could chose I think I'd prefer a taller than me woman, but that's not how it works. I fall in love with fat, short or idk disabled women. It just happens.

This is kind of weird and I'm not sure I can describe it. I am incredibly trusty, I take everybodys words for what they are, unless it's an obvious lie I trust what people say. Which has bit me in the ass a couple of times. Which in turn has made me distrust my trust in people. Hope it makes some ki...

I never worked with punch cards, but we had teletype/printer terminals in high school in USA.
Anyways, I much prefer sailmaking and woodworking than computers nowadays.

I think it's for your daughter to decide.
I've always been very open with my autism, even before the diagnosis I told my boss and closest coleague about it.
But that's me, others may not want other to know.

Don't start talking old school computers, it just triggers something with me... I started with a spectrum in 1980? Then ABC 80 in High school, then pdp-11 in USA. I've been working with computers most of my life, from support, net design, security, programming (c), testing, web, you name it. Btw, I ...

Your Swedish is most probably better than my Norwegian.
Yes, trevligt, hyggeligt?

Being Swedish, I can totally identify with you saying that you will make mistakes, but trust me, you're fine.
BTW It's too, not to ;)
I can identify with most if not all that you said.
Anyways, welcome. I'm pretty new here myself.

I'm very cautious not to appear pretentious, and chose very carefully what I say and to who.
I have heard that it is quite common for intellectuals (not calling myself one) to have a fear of "getting caught" pretending they know more than they acually do.

It really disturbs me that you think men can pick and chose and women can't.
I don't mean to be rude, but come on.

You're a woman, of course it's going to work for you. Online dating is wayyyy easier if you're a woman and that's a fact! And if you think i'm full of horse crap, then sign up for Tinder as a normal looking man and see if you can even get a date within a week. The odds are that you likely won't. Th...

Another thing is don't use the same nick at multiple sites.
I am lazy and reckless, so I have done it, but I wouldn't advice it.
It is usually quite easy to gather a lot of information about a person if you can harvest the information from many sources.

I think that if someone makes me feel good I'll do better art. Doesn't matter if it's a lover, a friend, or a co-worker. I don't completely dismiss the thought of the suffering artist, but if I don't feel good I won't have the energy to make any, at least not anything good. (Not that I'm good at it,...

See I try that. And my mum still denies it. She looks disagreeable in her face (face down, tears in her eyes, scrunched up face etc), says something as vague as mmmm/hmmm. But agrees with me? I find it really confusing & my SAD tells me she's judging me/sad/angry. She says she looks disagreeabl...

Thanks, I think I will be fine with that language bit, since I've travelled quite a bit in China previously. Social dinner needs some thinking, I doubt either of us would feel comfortabe. And organizing stuff is not one of my strong sides. But good to know that embassies may be helpful. Thanks again...
