Men who like white hair will be attracted to an idea they've constructed of you, because of your white hair.

Men who are attracted to you will like your white hair because its a part of you.

Guess which group is the best bet for a long-term relationship?

Not sure if you're stating a case with this or trying to prompt a debate. I looked at some of the links because nutrition is something I find really interesting, doubly so when it becomes confused by ideologies and moralising. I have no problem with vegans or vegetarians. Everyone has to make their ...

A friend I had once tried to set me up, I think. His girlfriend had a friend and they maybe thought she and I would hit it off. So we went out together and yeah, really didn't go well. I can't really function in bars and pubs (I hadn't worked this out at that age though) so I was almost mute, in com...

When I first entered the world of work I would tell people that I was allergic to alcohol so I didn't have to drink or really go out with work people. I just couldn't handle that stuff. Then I got into whiskeys and bourbons for a while - I liked them and they were interesting to me so I drank them a...

I would love to be able to dance. But no, I don't like to. Way too self conscious.

Shows like that are a product with a specific audience. They have to be because they're funded by advertising. So it becomes a simple calculation. Say you manufacture and sell spot cream. People over 30 are less likely to buy spot cream. So for the maximum return on your advertising spending, you wa...

I've never read or watched any Harry Potter, and I wouldn't want to. I saw a preview once and it showed kids playing football on broomsticks in the sky? It looked really fake. I hate special effects, and I don't do fantasy. The Harry Potter films are sadly, awful. I really hope they remake them one...

Duck- my son sometimes says really negative things about himself like that as well. He judges himself as being so different from other kids and then he always focuses on where he comes up short. It seems to help him if other kids notice something special about him and call attention to that. Like h...

I can't deal with anything where people get sexual pleasure out of torturing/mutilating other people. Not for me. I can do stupid, I can do crude. I like Gummo. I think that's a really interesting piece of cinema. I have no problem with people being artsy-fartsy or pretentious! I also don't watch su...

I don't know if you'd call it a stim. I think it's something to do with proprioception. Sort of anchoring yourself in a space. Some people don't get enough sensory feedback to have a good idea of where there are in a space. So they touch things more (and harder) than others because they're searching...

Chillhop radio. I often have it on when I'm (supposed to be) working. I can't work when music has lyrics in it so Chillhop is perfect background noise for me when I'm writing.

Overall, feedback seems to suggest I'm kind of an 'intense', wordy person. It's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just kind of my character and I've gotten more love than hate for it. Depends on how you use it, I guess. It served me well when I was dating. I can relate to this. I have always been a...

I love a Gus Van Sant movie called Gerry which no one seems to have heard of, despite it starring Matt Damon and Casey Affleck.

I love it because almost nothing happens in it. Until right at the end, and then it isn't 100% that anything happened at all. But it's awesome.

Personally, when I write characters, I never start off with a condition informing character traits. Sometimes characters reveal to me that they have some kind of condition in the writing of them, and then I can play on that a bit in rewriting. But I wouldn't start writing an 'autistic' character unl...
