And I am not asking for myself. I look good enough to do alright with the ladies, if I should apply myself to that and in any case I am in a relationship.


This isn't what you'd call a light-hearted post.

If you are sensitive to topics about mortality or aren't in a good mood right now, you may wish to skip it or come back to it later.


Anyone having issues working from home?

Email communication is pretty much essential to what I do. And a lot of my job involves telling people what to do when they have problems. I'm more or less an administrative assistant, I think.

I did and I have to say I was disappointed. But open to other opinions on it.

Why do young people like socialism so much?

Questions are good but if this is more than a rant, the right question must be asked.

I'm in my early thirties, so i count as young? What about elementary school kids?

And what do you mean by socialism? The usa has tons of socialist policies that no one (or at least not most) seem to have a problem with. Public schools, public libraries, social security, unemployment benefits, the government of most states requiring you to have auto insurance if you want to drive, and others i can't think of right now.

Probably you have none of these things in mind when you say socialism, but are simply aping rhetoric that a pundit is spouting who could care less if your child has a basic education.

The only way a debate like this becomes grounded in reality is by talking about specific problems with specific policies. Otherwise both sides are swiming in a sea of idealisti nonesense.

So I'm scared I hurt a snake...

Let me say I am pleased to see a bipedal show such concern for his reptilian fellows. while I am not an expert on snakes, I believe that, if it was hurt, you would probably be able to tell. Bones crack when broken, and you should realize that creatures are usually built pretty tough - snakes spend their whole lives on the ground, after all.

He wouldn't have been much safer living in your store, so I believe you did the right thing. On the other hand, I would offer...what if the snake was venomous? I do not know where you live and if there are such snakes in the area, but your job probably doesn't pay you enough to get treated for snake venom. Animal control may have been a better option.

Solipsism (/ˈsɒlɪpsɪzəm/ from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self') is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist.

I think, therefore I am. But why not just, Think. Think. Think. And not bother to assume that I must be the one thinking. Maybe the thoughts belong to someone else. To assume the thoughts that appear in the head on these shoulders as these hands type are my own is just as good as to assume that the sandwhich that these eyes see in your hand is mine just because these eyes in this head see it.

There's a giveness to thoughts though-they're personal, no one else seems to hear them unless I open my mouth, and I can do it at anytime that I'm not asleep. How can the thoughts that I can hear that you cannot hear be yours and not mine? But might as well ask why the voice the deaf man cannot hear when he uses his mouth not be his and not mine when I hear it while it's just we two in the room.

Do you think being in love in a relationship is important?

Well, kids in the picture is different. It complicates things.

The perspective I would offer as one who was once a kid is that I tend to agree about kids wanting to see their parents happy.

My parents never liked eachother, and I don't think living with them gave us a good example on meaningful and effective conflict resolution, since they were bad at it.

The thought of my parents divorcing was an interesting, if not completely welcome prospect to me, and at points in my childhood I thought it would be inevitable.

It's still somewhat mysterious to me that my parents ever got married in the first place. They're still together and I at this point I'd rather they be together because they're so old I think it would be hard for both of them to be alone. I mean, they're not that old, late sixties and seventy, but still.

Okay then, here's the long answer

Thanks for replying :)
I actually didn't intend for the post to be anonymous but I guess it doesn't matter.

I know its important to many people but I was wondering how often people are actually "in love" in their relationships or if they're mostly in it for other reasons like kids, money, loneliness, etc. Being in love is ideal of course. I just don't know how realistic it is for the average person, especially once there are kids and work and real, everyday life becomes the priority. It's interesting you point out that being in love usually comes from being in a relationship long enough. My experience has been the opposite of that most times, like the longer I know the person, the less "in love" I feel, but I guess that's not really being in love then is it?

I don't have a diverse experience with relationships. I've only dated two women, both long term relationships, one of whom I am still dating. So in that sense I do not think my experience is ideal for answering certain questions about love. Take that as a disclaimer.

I do not think I was in love in the first relationship, and I don't think we ever said "I love you." I liked her but I don't think the feelings were symmetrical if that makes sense. We dated for about nine months or so. It wasn't a bad relationship but I think we both felt at a certain point that it "wasn't going anywhere" which what the heck does that mean anyway, I don't think anyone knows, but it seemed to be our consensus.

It was for the best, because I don't think spending more time in the relationship would have made the in love feeling happen.

With my current gf we've been dating for like three years now and I do not feel like the "in loveness" once I realized it happened, has really altered in terms of magnitude in anyway. Sometimes she does stuff that bugs me which makes the "in loveness" feeling recede into the background because I'm annoyed at her or something but after I'm over it it comes back.

There is a type of insecurity for me, which I have experienced in both my relationships, of "Do they really like/love me or are they just really dry for a relationship and I was the best option that came along?" Which is a terrible thing to think but like I said, I'm insecure about things sometimes. My point is, clearly whether or not I am not only in love, but also that the other person feels the same way, is VERY important to me.

Why? I'm not sure. People aren't robots, we're not completely logical. I could wax philosophical on that but I'll end my reply here.

There's just more to it than looks for me and most people I think. People look attractive to me if they are intelligent and kind. I'd love my husband no matter what he looked like because of who he is.

What if he looked like Billy Joel?

A famous example would be maybe, Nathan Fillion. I thought he was cute since I first 'met' him in Firefly. He's a bit thicker today than when he was in Firefly and still looks attractive.

Not sure I'd call Nathon Fillion old...I mean, he's not even fifty.

Now if you said Eric Idle, my eyebrows would perk up.

I think there is a unconscious attraction to women with wide hips for that reason.

On a similar note I fear that with all the c sections, women with wide hips will become less and less.

Well, perhaps wide hippers won't be less, just narrow hippers will be more. I would think that the elimination of a need for a certain characteristic won't make that characteristic disappear, it will just make the absence of that characteristic more prevalent since nothing is stopping it from being eliminated.
