thats so true. I havent even read anything on this thread yet so this is *not* directed at anyone here but I was just thinking of telling my roomie, that it doesnt pay in life to be a smark aleck or a smart ass, trying to be clever, get ahead of the other guy and what not. It pays in life to make sense and to do the right thing. He gets emotional at times and lets his ego in when we have discussions sometimes.

Meanwhile.. I'm having a frigging hard time being myself infront of a real cutie I'm seeing nowadays. If I dont chill out and relax, it'll all be MOOT.. damn me. What the hell. I'm almost there! you know. Oh gosh, plz.. not let this happen to me again.

(count on me to change the topic or stop the conversation..hehe). I'm the firestarter (not that much though, not here anyway), I'm the thread stopper.

Hey Guest! Good to 'see' you! Those of us super-old timers who know you, still love you ((guest_guest)).

I think you're an AAC fixture of tolerance. You've tolerated a lot, and there's a good many of us who have 'tolerated' much from you. I've used you as an example before, so I'm hoping it's ok this time too. You've taught me a lot about tolerance guest, so thank you for that. You're always welcome here.

Speaking of being a thread-stopper, I think you and I, are about tied for thread-stopping!

So, let me hopefully restart this thread with a little humor, and say that while it can be an abrasive mix stirring any religion & logic together, how about mixing Christianity, food, and humor?

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the
Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red
vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and
Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man
said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some
sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that
Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and
sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size
14.

So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island
Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side. And Man and Woman
unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in
which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and
chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more
weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.
God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and
said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's
Food."

God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those
extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not
have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried
before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with
nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy
center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still
satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double
cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied,

"Yes! And super size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

Then Satan created HMOs.

Carry on people, please 🙂

And leave it to me for always having to step in and add my opinion. LOL! I must say, SC, that you have many 'flavors and colors' about yourself! You humour is most inviting, as always, as many 'others' here with their jokes have helped at times to break the ice. Interesting...

As this site is also about the opportunity for learning about ourselves and others; to stretch and grow, it can be frustrating and cumbersome. And that is, even if at our choosing to take on that challenge.

I do not put my views out there, or here very much on exactly WHAT my philosophical and religious views are, and choose to keep most of that to myself. I do agree, that is one of the reasons why we have separation of church and State. Our Country might have been founded on the principle of freedom of religious beliefs, but most importantly, it was founded on freedom of speech and thought, without imposing those upon others. Religion and politics are two subjects that are kept more low key, especially in social settings where one does not want to make a big stirr and cause conflicts. Both subjects are easy argument to open doors of a variety of views, unless you have a group with agreeing thoughts. So forward we go!

Yea SC, nice to see you all too.
You're all in my list of the most cherished people in my life because I improved a lot, I talked a lot here to people, that advice didnt go to waste. I still ofcourse have to improve a lot. Oh you can use me as an example all you like, I owe atleast that much to the site. Heh, that was a nice story about holy good. After a long time I read something long the on the board and usually I just go "blah".
I guess you can forget about that edit. That means I'll just remember not to say that thing anywhere now. Still you know if you could edit it, I'd be grateful 😀 if its not too much trouble. Gosh I'm bugging you again, I wish I hadnt written that so it wouldnt be a problem. Blah blah.. blabbing on and on.
I read women and men have atleast 100 differences in the brain, a key one being women are able to let their both sides communicate more easily. I'm trying to learn, always curious.

TEZ, I'm doing fine friend! Whatsup! Hows you doing yourself, hows life? Better? I'm fine. I need a cutie now, I wanna be married and live the fun life. I'm a beginner at taking care of myself so I think I found out in a relationship when you have someone with you, you should be good at taking care of your own needs first. That way you can be sure you're in the best shape for the thing. I'm obsessing about her as USUAL, I just cant relax. I'm trying to identify negative emotions such as fear of rejection, suspicion, non-trust. I have them time to time and have to quell them quickly. Its tough being yourself.
She already told me I'm handsome and all and that I'm great, nice clean person, very pure in mind. I have to remember all these things she said about me, like in that song sunscreen "keep your love letters, throw away your bank statements". We need to remember the compliments we receive, right? I'm trying to connect that and see the value of the mental connection women want.

So whatsup, any advice for me? Give it to me hard, dont hold back. I basically want this girl to be mine. Plz plz. Oh I started telling myself to tell myself that she does like me, because thats where I was not believing it fully. I dont care as long as she's nice, being herself and pretty and shes all that. I dont think I should have any problem in letting her be my partner for life, I mean I dont see how I could get a better match besides very soon I'm going to be living lonely so I need a nice partner. I know if we believe in one thing (if I believe she really does like me), things can be much easier for me. Positive belief is extremly important. I need to be better in taking care of myself, in being solid in myself (though these are about the exact words I was saying years ago here, I've come far and need to go far still), having a good stable clean center that gives comfort to me first and then it would give comfort to her too. I fear also I'll lose her to someone else who's more energetic and gives her a more solid center. See the insecurity? I need to get rid of that. The more secure I am, the less likely I am to lose her. Blah...

Advice regarding winning wimmin? Hmmmmm! That is a tall order and this is hardly my strong suite.

However here goes: Be yourself, be authentic. If she doesn't want the 'authentic you' then she is not the one for you.

Of course I'm not advising breaking wind as you feel like it. 🙂 You know what I mean!!

Ok marriage in its real sense? a contract to love another for ever till we die? Thats still unrealistic. Even if she was my sweetie and what, I would say, I'll TRY my best to love you as long as possible and I HOPE we'll be happy. This moment matters the most. Contract? Would you form a contract to prove your friendship with your best friend? see :D. I dont need to sign a contract to prove my love for my sweetie. heh. On the other hand though, legally, property wise, issue of children, there, we might need some contract. I dont agree with the contract as it is, but you know? I dont see any alternative in this age so its cool with me. Just give it to me whatever you got, I'll try to make the best use of it.

I'm going to be lonely soon, ofcourse I'd rather live with a cutie than some other guys. I do wanna make sure we'll be happy together. I'm pretty flexible I think. I'm great with guys, I mean I can have almost anyone respect me a lot, but with girls I need to be more stable and fight off the fears.

TWINKS,
"she justs wants someone to take care of her :D" hehe. It might be nice, I dont care, again I dont see other alternatives. It may be this kind of dependency makes it all the more fun.. so I'm trying to find out. Really, I just dont want to live alone now. I've been having male roomates for so long, why not a female roomate now eh? Thats the thing. A very nice cute roomie, so we can have lots of fun and enjoy life. Naive or sound dumb, I dont care, hmm, trying to figure out stuff here. I know I'll have the good answer at the end of the process, I almost always do as long as I've thought about a certain issue hard or long enough. thanks for the hug!

TEZ,
thanks, being myself all the time is hard! I managed to do it the first few times I met her and she fell all over me. Its like I almost have it but it slips out everynow and then. I'm almost there. Previously I didnt have the muscles to lift that, now I do but i need some more strength.

Well.. I guess I'll keep working. Everyone tells us to be ourself and be authentic. Exactly how? when you got all those egos, fears, insecurity devils popping up inside you every now and then. Pretty hard! Need a lot of training I guess. How exactly? There's no way except to find out for ourselves. Oh my mom commented recently I've become much better in talking, I'd better be, a third of my life passed by already. I'll remember your advice, I HAVE to be authentic and be solid in myself. Gosh, tired here, long day, I didnt have good sleep. Sleep! is mostly for the mind, a recent article said.
Oh TEZ, I dont have the intensity of thought, of problem solving, analysis of alternatives that I had years before. I remember I could think like magic, very clearly. Now I think I'm like blah.. whatever. The load is too much. Maybe its just circumstances. I'll go to bed soon, its too heavy for me hmmmm.. zzzz.

Well when I saw twinks and Cici saying "how come you want to get married when you were the one talking against it?" heh.
Gosh if it doesnt work out or I dont marry that girl, I'll probably be sitting alone in my apt for the next year atleast ... unless something else happens.

You said:

Well ... advice is easy to give; following one's own advice is much harder.

My 'authenticity' has led to another 'flame war' with the Christian fundamentalists on this thread. 🙂

There is a price tag on 'authenticity'. We all tend to put up a persona as a defence barrier in different company.

However, some issues justify 'ruffling feathers'. 🙂 I think this thread exemplifies some of them.

Tez, yes its hard to exchange differing opinions without ruffling feathers. When I'm debating and in a strong mood, I can get pretty rough myself (much more than you were, hm, is that a bad thing I do or not, I dont know).

I dont know where my life is going, with respect to a life partner, really. I do feel it will solve over time. The only thing is life is so short. I wouldnt mind being in this state if it was infinite, but time passes and never comes back. sigh. I wish I could be comfortable in my imperfections, now that would give me peace. Then again, its those body signals like hunger and physical comfort, when they arent taken care of, everything really falls down like I feel right now. Little bits and pieces all pointing in the wrong direction. Maybe there'll be a better day tomorrow, I'm just tired right now but got a good amount of work done.

You said:

" ... The only thing is life is so short."

Yes it is and time is on the wing.

And:

" ... I wouldnt mind being in this state if it was infinite,"

Would you really want to live forever?

And:

" ... but time passes and never comes back. sigh."

I find this verse and your statement very thought provoking.

"The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it."

From THE RUBAIYAT by Omar Khyyam.

And:

"... I wish I could be comfortable in my imperfections, now that would give me peace."

What is it about your imperfections that make you uncomfortable?

And:

" Then again, its those body signals like hunger and physical comfort, when they arent taken care of, everything really falls down like I feel right now."

Hunger and physical discomfort in the U.S. of A???

And:

"... Little bits and pieces all pointing in the wrong direction."

I do hope you were not talking about your one 'eyed trouser snake' when you wrote this! 🙂

And:

" Maybe there'll be a better day tomorrow, I'm just tired right now but got a good amount of work done."

That's good. I sense a degree of satisfaction in your words.

Catch ya later buddy.

Tez, would I really want to live forever? yes! My positive attitude would get me through. Its sad I wont be able to witness all the changes around the globe. I would have traded anything to witness all that. My life is a tiny atomic fraction of what has, is and will happen in the world.
Omar Khyyam eh, nice one.

>> What is it about your imperfections that make you uncomfortable? < < Always challenging my brain, arent you! Thanks for that, with that I'm able to learn more about myself. Whats it that makes me uncomfortable? Well e.g. like if I see nice girls, I go hyper most of the times. I'm trying to improve and maintain my ground. Around guys, I can be great, I can command respect and everything, now if I could do around girls.. that would really be it. Another imperfection is my partial success at being comfortable with my body. I'm not muscled and all that but definitely, that doesnt matter if I'm comfortable with it, you know. I have to be at peace all the times. >> Hunger and physical discomfort in the U.S. of A??? < < Yea! Ironic. If I'm not listening to my body signals or ignoring them and not taking care of myself, I naturally start feeling crappy. I need to be a master at taking care of myself, its the first thing that needs to be done. Like yesterday I made sure I was feeling ok before calling that girl, and our conversation went good. If I had followed my desperate impulse to call first thing in the morning or when I hadnt eaten, it wouldnt be like that. I think I'm going to give myself two years to find a nice girl and then that'll be it. I have to make sure I take care of myself. So friend.. just trying to hang in there.
