So many people on here complaining about how hard dating is while I’m here crying over my first crush, who died in a car accident when I was 13.

We heard you the first ten times. How old are you now?

The real problem that I see is that most of you wanna brag about having someone around, like you’ve won a prize or something.

I think you’re fooling yourself if you genuinely that’s why most people seek companionship. It certainly isn’t my reason. And then the rest of your paragraph seems to fly in the face of that first sentence, talking about “the one” and harlequin books which are absolutely not about bragging to people (or at least I would assume). Sending a really mixed message here.

Just to let everyone know, this is the same person who posts an incessant number of Bully Maguire memes in the worst edit ideas thread. So I think it’s only fair if I ask this question: How old are you now?

That aside, I’ve only posted about the death of my first crush two times in total (three if you count this one). And I don’t recall anyone reacting to it until today. So, no. I don’t think everyone heard that. Maybe they have now, but I don’t care. I’m crying because someone I loved is dead. You’re crying because you can’t get a date. I’m not the one who’s being a child here.

Also, if you genuinely think that I’m fooling myself, you obviously don’t live in my area of residence. I don’t know where you get this idea that people are looking for more than what I described, but in my experience, it isn’t true. Hell, fmalover just admitted that he’s trying to get in one for physical reasons. If you’re looking for something more than that from a relationship, then good! I wish more people had that mindset when dating. But don’t assume that everyone else is thinking the same thing you are.

Finally, let’s talk about those mixed messages. I think it’s obvious that my post looked down on things like “the one” and Harlequin romance novels. On top of that, I find it odd that you think those two things don’t involve bragging to people when they both involve putting your significant other on a pedestal and feeding you unrealistic fantasies about love. When people were reading Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, were they not bragging? If not, then explain Team Edward.

I think I posted a single video of that once. I did not post “an incessant number”. Certainly less times then you’ve posted about this one really specific trauma without elaborating upon it in any meaningful way. Saying it won’t make it go away, nor will it make people excuse anything you do because of it. If you’re actually open to dealing with it so you can move on with your life than by all means do so but you don’t seem open to that. You can’t live in the past, as much as you might want to.

So I think it’s only fair if I ask this question: How old are you now?

I asked you first, you answer first, then I’ll gladly answer. Besides, I’m asking in an attempt to help you. You’re asking in an attempt to belittle me.

You’re crying because you can’t get a date. I’m not the one who’s being a child here.

Keep projecting, kid.

If you’re looking for something more than that from a relationship, then good! I wish more people had that mindset when dating. But don’t assume that everyone else is thinking the same thing you are.

Fair enough, maybe others are more shallow than you and I.

My friend broke up with his girlfriend of several years a while back, was real down about it, but within a month or two was already talking up girls. He just got back from going to the other end of country with a new girl and it hasn’t even been 6 months since his breakup.

I find it odd that you think those two things don’t involve bragging to people when they both involve putting your significant other on a pedestal and feeding you unrealistic fantasies about love.

Putting people on a pedestal isn’t bragging about them really. I guess it’s bragging about someone else to yourself? It’s not really what I’d consider bragging, at any rate. It’s not about inflating your own ego.

When people were reading Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, were they not bragging? If not, then explain Team Edward.

How is rooting for a particular ending the same as bragging? I guess you could argue they brag when their side wins? Regardless, the point of romance fiction is to get a taste of what it feels like to be in love, not to get a taste of the associated status. Or at least, that’s what I’d expect from romance fiction and all I’ve ever seen from it in fanfiction.

You exaggerated the number of times I talked about my first crush. I exaggerated the number of times you posted Bully Maguire memes. Seems fair enough to me.

I also think that the person who says that they’re asking for your age because they’re trying to help and that I’m belittling them while also saying, “We heard you the first ten times. How old are you now?” and “Keep projecting, kid.” is straight up lying and has no intent to help me. So no, I prefer to respect my confidentiality in this topic.

Also, if that’s how you view romance fiction, then it’s no wonder you’re having a hard time finding someone. Most romance fiction is overly idealized and unrealistic. I had a friend once who called it “emotional porn” and that’s a pretty accurate description of it. I wouldn’t call it something that gets you “a taste of what it feels like to be in love” if I were you.

Keep lying to yourself then. I did not tell any lies.

I don’t see it as a realistic model of what to expect, it’s just escapism.

Very well. I’ll keep lying to myself if you’re going to keep lying to yourself, too.

Also, it gives you a taste of what it feels like to be in love, but now, it’s escapism? Which one is it, then?

I feel completely incapable of getting my work done. Every time I so much as try to start I feel repelled by it and get a deep urge to do literally anything else.

Wtf is wrong with my university’s web design? It’s so insanely convoluted and non-functional. You have to jump through so many hoops and completely broken systems to even hope to get anything done. I swear it’s like they don’t want me to register.

Damn.

There’s no other type of criminal I despise more than rapists, and I am even far more willing to believe that a murderer can be reformed than a rapist ever will.

I would list things I can conceivably come up with that are worse but no one wants to spend the afternoon debating what the worst possible act a human can commit is. One thing I will say is that if you believe someone to be beyond reform, then you should believe in executing them. That’s my take.

I wish pedos and rapists were executed

OK, I will indulge in my darker thoughts.

I am against the death penalty/executions not because I find it cruel, inhumane or whatever. I am against because we’re all going to die anyway and therefore don’t consider death a punishment. Breaking their will through punishment, both mental and physical would IMO be a far more effective measure.

That strikes me as cruel and inhumane. The whole point of execution is that it’s painless. It’s not about punishing them, it’s about ridding us of having to deal with them. We shouldn’t torture criminals for their acts.

Yeah, I don’t condone torture either. In my opinion, prison should be focused on rehabilitation, not punishment. I’m fine with the death penalty, since some criminals are so depraved that no amount of rehabilitation could possibly fix them, but torture, no matter who it’s done to, is absolutely horrible.

GOUT

not the one we all know and hate, but the actual gout, the illness. I got it! a flare in my hip, so I can barely move around at the moment. It is in fact less fun than attempting to enjoy the GOUT dvd’s.

That’s impossible, even for a computer.

The 3rd day of a 4 day weekend is coming to a close and I have done absolutely nothing. There is simply nothing in the world that sounds like fun to me right now. It’s an agonizing existence having all the time in the world and nothing to do with it.
