You might compare being in a high maintainance relationship like a hard day at the office, but it can never be compared with loneliness which is like a belly ache while having total freedom.


I prefer to think of myself more like a ghost, forever unable to participate only observe.


If your loneliness doesn’t take away from the things you can participate in such as programming, scifi, anime or vacation, consider yourself very lucky. Loneliness can rob a person of any enjoyment of life.

It does, sometimes. Ever since my birthday a week ago I've been totally unable to get any programming done, which sucks as I'm paid to do it. SciFi I still kinda enjoy at least, though anime I find is just not that fun to watch alone anymore.

Vacations? I don't do those, never have really. I'm not able to relax...can't shut off my brain.

To me, the whole dating process seems backwards. I want to know more about a woman before I start dating her, not rushing into things not knowing anything. Unfortunately that in turn means that I'm quite familiar with the "friend zone", and that is the construct I want to abolish over all others.


Getting to know her is what dating is.


Ah, so its a difference in definition then... To me, dating is two people that are in an intimate relationship spending time together...

Though, to be honest, I should start using your definition, since then I will have technically dated all the girls in my high school graduating class...


Ah OK. So going on a date might not actually be dating?

carbon dating is quite a simple process.

all life on earth is carbon based.
