Anyway, after talking to that co-worker a lot, I noticed what he was saying about the unrealistic sense of entitlement so many American woman have, and how they aren't willing to meet you halfway or see what you are about. They want to have fun, but usually don't have any sense of adventure or willingness to create fun themselves. They want to be swept off their feet or some bullshit. Like 75% of the time when you are casually flirting with a girl, she will get scared, not in a rapey way, but in a "uh oh something might actually happen and my routine might be disrupted" way. I'm not the least bit bad looking or awkward either. But I have dated a Brazilian girl and noticed a big difference. She actually made plans for us.

 

damn man, you are speaking my language.

I've always thought that buying a gaggle of geese is the way to true happiness, even in troubled times.

How could this not be a good idea?

 

If you've ever walked across a park full of goose shit, you'd understand why this is not a good idea.

I've started online dating.

 

Can someone explain the "someone who doesn't take life too seriously" thing thats on every fucking doris's profile wishlist? What does it mean? Sometimes life is serious, sometimes not. Is this simply code for "I don't want some dour, humourless prick?" Well of course you don't. But I don't feel the need to write on my profile that I'm looking for someone with a vaguely symmetrical vagina who meets an arbitrary minimum level of aesthetics. That much is a given.

 

I hope I'm allowed to say vagina on nuWATMM.

That's a lol. As far as online dating, just remember that 99.99% of all people SHOULD be vaguely incomprehensible to you, and you're probably looking for someone who is less so. That said, I think you're right about what they mean, and it's just too hard or unpalatable to most people to explain the particulars of what they want. Should people know what they want? Sure, to some degree, but someone who has an exact idea of who they're looking for is a fantasist.

 

It's a weird world. Crap shoot. Just fail a bunch and get better at it. I guess I'm saying "try not to take it too seriously" lols your welcome

online dating is fucking weird, to me it makes me almost more nervous to interact with a prospective chick via okcupid than it would in real life. Maybe it doesn't help that i wasn't born after 1995

 

as a new OKC user, I mostly agree. I'm still giving it a go though.

Have you considered making this:

your profile picture on OKC? I would totally fuck you, even though I'm a married man in a different country.

unfortunately I don't think that would appeal to the womenfolk, FC. I'm flattered though, thanks.

 

 

the weirdest thing about okcupid is how every girl seems like a douche bag

 

how so? I haven't experienced that, the biggest problem is just being able to get a response. tumbleweeds all over.

I'm about to make the most self-humiliating statement I've ever made on WATMM: I'm a virgin who's never dated before.

I was insecure about it for years, but now I couldn't give a shit. That's not to say I don't care about proper grooming, hygiene, and manners.

I guess this doesn't count as a midlife crisis though, unless this were still the case fifteen years later.

Girls are douchebags now.

j/k man. You've got something that could blow WATMM wide-open if you made a separate thread with this. We could groom you into swordsman or at least generate lulz in the process

 

 

Naw, man. I don't wanna be a drama queen. I prefer to keep a low profile.

 

BTW is that Jesse Pinkman?? Great series.

You need to get out more my man.

 

Also, OKC is lame. Get off their and go out more often and talk to girls.

amber, there's a lot of other good blokes in the same boat, trust me. don't feel so bad. my advice is that if you have things about yourself you wanna work on, then do so, but remember to put yourself out there and talk to girls more if you want to make it happen.

i guess i'm just really picky about girl's personalities, far more than i am with looks. I like girls of all types physically speaking but jesus christ some of the profiles are just boner killers.

Appreciate your input Usagi. I do have major plans this year already. But finding a date seems to be a low priority for me, if one at all. Feels like it's getting more difficult to even understand the necessity of it.

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to steal the thread like this.

A depressing although very informative thread.

 

I'm 23 (24 next month), I'm 6+ months into my first serious relationship for sometime. We talk frequently about the 'big steps' in life (careers, property, kids). As you do. I feel like we're going to be together for a longtime if that makes sense. Although, I did question my thinking after she invited me to go and see Olly fucking Murs, Michael Buble and Greenday. I'm gently easing her into 'good music' (SAW II/The Campfire Headphase for sexy time/sleep/snuggles..) so I'm working on that.

 

Anyway, my worry is that I always think too far ahead. I mean, it has it's benefits, I save money well and put it aside for things I need, time management and general planning. However, by 30 I wanted to be experienced in a career I enjoy and from there on I'd have the right structure to build a family on. I'm a carpenter/joiner or was, I think, wannabe teacher at some point? (Winter always is tough and I plan on going back into education to become a teacher).

The building trade sucks, I can't fulfil what I want in my career here in England. Maybe watching too much Norm on The New Yankee Workshop has tainted my way of thinking in regards to woodwork but it's just not like that here in England, London especially. I was thinking of maybe moving to Canada where carpentry actually involves using natural woods rather than removing someone's piss stained toilet boxing-in. Like building houses or something.

 

My main worry is that I haven't got off to the best of starts in my career and time is ticking. I've got some experience but I wouldn't say I'm competent enough to carry out certain jobs. I worry that by 30 I still might be in the same situation, no solid career path and if the teaching thing fails, I'm sat on my arse again, with little worth in the bank and the pressure of fulfilling my way of thinking, huge.

 

My futureproof plan if everything fails is to drop everything, flee to China and give my life to the Shaolin Monastery. To cleanse this filthy western bod.

 

Maybe I worry too much, so I'm not sure if this fits into this thread particularly. I'm sorry in advance. I guess it could be seen as a pre-midlife crisis. Perhaps?

that isn't even a crisis. that's just sensibly considering your future. keep doing that and you might have an entirely crisis-free life.

      This is the Thai food thread.  We can allow tangential discussion of other SE Asian cuisine and food culture.  I do not want to hear about how you love Sriracha, you basic bitch.

      A puzzle for watmm.
       
      You awake to find yourself in a completely enclosed space measuring approximately 5' by 3' by 3'. There is a single source of light in the form of a battery powered led strip. A small black cat lies curled at your feet.
       
      Two questions.
       
      a) How did you get here?
      b) How will you escape?
       
      I will reveal the answers tomorrow night.

      Does anyone have any piercings? In particular nipple piercings.

      There's a dead cat in my front garden. Judging by its body position I believe somebody has placed it there deliberately. What does this mean? Will I be sleeping with the fishes?
       
      I was going to post a pic, but I know how sensitive some of you are. But pic on request.

      Yo,
       
      I have very bad posture. How do I correct it? Can anyone recommend a) specific gym exercises b) a yoga routine with all the hippy nonsense removed? My office chair is shit and I do the occasional 12 hour day and it's really not helping at the moment, has anyone tried the orthopaedic straps that you can get that force you into correct posture? Worth seeing a chiropractor/osteopath?
       
      Thanks,
      kaka
