stupid first world problems you're dealing with

Recommended Posts

Not to derail the thread or split unnecessary hairs, but the conventional 80%/20% thing is a little misleading.

Most of what you get from exercise is that it suppresses hunger and also burns calories while you're at rest. You don't really burn that many calories when you work out (you wouldn't want to if you were wandering around the plains of Africa, chasing gazelle to death all day). There have also been studies that show you make better choices for your diet when you exercise. You will generally have a higher success rate for weight loss if you exercise vs. only changing your diet. So definitely keep it up, but you will also need to change your diet if you want to make a larger dent.

Getting mildly peeved by tiny irritants like pouring water into my cup and teabag and it sucking the string and paper tab in with it, then getting annoyed at myself for getting irritated by something so stupid. I need sleep.

More fun symptoms of tiredness:

  • Impatience
  • Illusory 'hunger' that's really misinterpreted tiredness
  • Strange attraction to forbidden switches and levers like emergency brake/door release/fire alarm/...

Anyway what I came here to post: blew around one third of my monthly mobile data allowance on the second day of the month, watching some black metal documentary on YouTube thinking I was on Wi-Fi.

OH MY FUCKING GOD! Dealing with Adobe is the worst... it took them over a WEEK to approve my subscription to Adobe Premiere. A couple of hours after I had bought it I wrote them and told them that I wouldn't be needing it because it took too long for them to approve it. The girl at the support center told me that I would be refunded if they ended up charging me. Nice.
Well, lo and behold I was just charged and they've made a team subscription for me?! What the fuck?

that's where boredom and tiredness intersect I guess

fwp: dating in mid-thirties is strange as f###
last time a woman I went on a date with invited me to her family place at the seaside, but went out of the way to explain me it doesn't mean anything romantic... so far in fact I began thinking she might insinuating something... because when I jokingly said "cool, we're gonna sit around cafes in the old town centre and be each other's wingman" she gave me a disappointed look... But I always wanted a woman-wingman... this feminism thing is going nowhere, obviously.

I don't know what is behind this but the more she brings it up e.g. "we're not having sex tonight!" or, in your case, "this is not romantic", the more likely it is you'll close the deal. 

The "we're not doing it!" woman still kept slamming every drink I bought her and I just joked about it like "of course we're not! I'm not that kind of girl". I later discovered a very nice matching underwear set with the freshest wax I've ever seen so what was all that hullabaloo? Can't talk about it too openly because it sounds like I'm advocating "just give it to her, they all want it". Not so. It's such a weird dance that I'm getting too tired to do. Best to dip and read the BoC subforum.

Yeah this happened with one last year. Straight up messaged me after first date saying she's not romantically interested but enjoyed talking to me "so would you be interested in being friends?". I said fine. We went for a drink with her and another friend, cute Finnish girl, so I asked her later if her friend was single. She was, but not interested. BUT this now seemed to offend original girl's ego and before I knew it she'd invited me out on another drink, got wasted, told me we might as well fuck because it was bound to happen at some point "even though you're broke and a goddamn degenerate" (she was an entitled rich girl, complete with tiny dog in her handbag) I just agreed with everything she said and we went back to mine and boned.

She later morphed into a weird female version  of the niceguy/friendzoned archetype and I had to shut her out completely. I bumped into her 2 days ago after just over a year. Polite convo ensued but I got the fuck outta there asap, still waiting for a message to arrive via text/whatsapp/IG.

FWP is I went on my very first date this year after just getting out of a year long relationship and jfc yikes. Shoulda spotted the main red flag which was all headshots on her profile.

What turned up was a ball of a woman. 4ft tall and 4ft wide. Even her face wasn't the same, it was somehow sunken. "hey but maybe she had a nice personality?" nope.

She's a 4channer who also went to see Jordan Peterson live this year. Hyper reactive and sarcastic like an edgy teen. But called me a degenerate because I've slept with more than 2 people. Said she also fell out with her best friend because "she's a slut and sleeps around too much". Trans came up in the conversation and what she said about it made me ask if she identified as a TERF. She'd never heard of the term so I explained what it was "oh yeah, that's definitely me"

u kno me :^)

Yeah she was srsly pissed that she wanted to fuck me. She said she was also on one of those high flier professionals  rich-people dating sites that you have to pay thousands a year for membership but hadn't met anyone she liked "and then you come along with the crotch ripped out of your trousers and armpit stains in your t-shirts, u g h" <---- I only remember that part lol, but this was the angry rant leading up to "let's fuck"

I've also had the kind of experience that girl says she only wants to be friends, and then when I moved out of town she got angry. Then when I started to push the issue she went absolutely crazy, denied that she was interested in me even as a friend and told me not to contact her anymore.

If you're interested then fucking send some signals or at least don't go out of your way to say you only want to be friends. Geez.

Everywhere I look the conversation is about internet dating or prostitution, it could be my own heightened awareness but I fear this is headed towards a climax where I'll finally try one or both of them.
