Ah... the XWA single hearts club starts to reform.

Bummer Cracken.

I've just started to poke around with the idea of putting together a dating site profile now that the "Summer of Crisis" seems to be winding down for me, and my life seems to be regaining normal levels of suck rather than epic levels of chaos.

I do so with the feelings of trepidation that I may just be opening myself up to an entirely new and heretofore unknown universe of pain and anguish when I do.

But I suppose I have to... because being single and sexless is still the pits... but none of the other ways people seem to meet and make romantic connections have ever chanced to work for me. At least not in any way that's ever left me feeling better about my existence in the end, anyhow...

I've been on those dating sites for the last 5 years. Never had a single date come of it.

Fed ex that sh*t

I've heard that there are a lot of exotic young ladies to be found who are eager to come to the US, with love on their minds...

That's a fear. The idea that now I can only be rejected by a solitary woman in person every couple of months or so... but after I put my heart and soul online, I can then be rejected by millions simultaneously and publicly.

Also... the bigger fear is that up until now, I have failed to connect with anyone the slightest bit sane and normal... but the very few I have ended up attracting and becoming entangled with have all been totally bat**** crazy.

I'm sure I'll encounter hundreds of them online... and my guess is that if anyone goes for me in a big way online, it will be only those who can contribute more misery into my life.

I hope I'm wrong... but I'm not really going into this venture with high expectations that I'm going to have a great time out of it.

lol i only had 2 dates off that pof.com, all the other ones just ignore my messages or talk to me for a bit then vanish. the funny thing is, i had less dates as an "upgraded/subscribed" member than i did, so that's a plus. i guess. I've heard good things from the "Tinder" app for the smartphones, my buddy i go to drill with met his fiancee on there. never worked for me though, almost had 1 date off of it but she vanished.

i gotta go do this college thing, so maybe i'll meet a younger girl there.....the average age of the girls at my school is 18-23...i'd kind of rather date a younger girl anyway, less of a chance that she'll have "turned". lol

sad thing is, a lot of profiles on dating sites are inactive. That is why on eharmony any profile that was inactive for more then a month i pretty much ignored. A lot better for the Ego

Secondly, most of us I assume don't have a criminal record. You would be surprised that isn't the norm on most dating sites for guys.

if you go with the attitude "I am happy now, and I just want someone to share the happiness with" you will find things are a lot easier ,and rejection doesn't sting as much.

Arrow Spin girls

I only take it personally if the chick rejecting me is batsh*t crazy.

Those should be mine by default.

Arrow Double points

I had a profile on 'Myspace' where women were hitting on me like crazy. I wasn't using it for dating, since I had plenty of three-dimensional human females in front of me at the time, but my message thingie got burned UP by a constant stream of women.

The reason? My status was 'single,' and I was petting a kitty in my lap in the profile photo.

Kitty in your lap. Jolly good stuff--worth a try.

I've one-upped that by holding a HUMAN BABY in one of my pictures. Still no dice.

K_K is right, there are a lot of inactive profiles, and I never bother about those. What sucks is when you know they read your message or whatever, they look at your profile, and then they don't respond. But even that's not that bad. The suckiest thing is when you exchange a few messages, haven't really even gotten past the point of discussing your interests, what you do, etc., and then they just stop responding. It just leaves you thinking, "Wow, how did I manage to screw this up already?"

I mean, really, rejection by someone you don't even know who doesn't even know you doesn't really even sting. It's the cumulative effect of hundreds of such rejections over many years that get you thinking maybe you don't have as much to offer as you thought.

I had a girl approach me from Myspace... I mean a REAL LIVE woman! (Not one of the infinite number of scammy Fembot profiles I heard from, out phishing for a live catch by sending highly enticing messages. I got one of those literally seconds after I signed up, and before I even had a profile photo up.)

You may remember (from one of these past threads) I actually met her and saw her a couple of times... but every warning alarm was going off in my head the entire time, and we kinda split ways before a 4th date, and before everything could go haywire on me.

She's gotten in touch a couple of times over the years to tell me how amazing her new relationship is. I'm pretty sure she was drunk when sending me those messages.

I'm pretty sure another bullet dodged... or I'd have probably had yet another "Bat**** Crazy Ex" story to tell.

This is already turning into one of the busiest years I've had as a bowler, and I haven't started my winter league yet. I've been keeping an event calendar online, and the number of tournaments at my bowling alley in October and November is nothing to sneeze at. I believe I've already mentioned the state tournaments, too (seniors in Oct., open in the spring). And I may have something lined up for Thursday nights in addition to Monday nights.

had a decent first day of the semester.....so far i am liking all of the classes i have! tomorrow i only have 2 classes. I had to go rent some books and buy 1 book though, so that kind of sucks, less of a refund for me.

rest of the day just gonna relax til around 8 or 9 before i go to bed..trying to get myself to wake up at 4am so i can go to the gym and for a run even walk my dog before i start the day. planning on resuming work study next week once i'm used to my new schedule.

no interesting girls in any of my classes, we'll see what tomorrow is like. **** i might just start ****in around at college events just to make some more friends.

And yet another girl I have attempted to woo is now engaged. But luckily for me the girl of my dreams is getting married on Saturday, so I'm far too depressed about that to even think about this development. That's me. Mr. Lucky

Where are they now of past girlfriends

Hot summer high school romance: Girl married, divorced, Did some gold digging, and found a guy in San Fran
A date where she just wanted sex, and was going to say and do anything for it, then dump me when I wanted a serious relationship: Still single, lots of medical issues, Twice as fat, and only redeeming quality is she is a gaming girl
Rosencrantz: Feelings were not mutual, i think she found a guy and moved to Iceland
Short romance where I was completely out of my league; Married the next guy on the Rebound, has 2 kids. Stay at home mom

SOmeone with a lot of similar interests nad things in common, also has money: Married me for my cooking and physical abilities

I think it went quite well for me. Who cares about the other ones

Most of the girls I've every been on dates with (at least the ones I've ever received updates about...) are now married with kids somewhere.

It all depends on how generous you are willing to be with the "girlfriend" definition (for example, if it's supposed to be someone I saw more than say 3 or 4 times...) but I doubt I could call more than 1 or 2 "ex-girlfriends." Most are someone I saw once or twice, and that was it.

My track record is spotty to say the least. Very few, very short-lived, and very, VERY far between.

Yay, me.

Slow day, eh?

Ok then... I'll go.

I unwittingly damaged my knee yesterday in the mad scramble to get a big band concert up and running in an impossible time window. I woke up in agony, and spent the day limping around.

Fun times.

Knee feels a little bit better today... but I've been keeping off it.

Working tonight though... so we'll see if that aggravates it again.

I'd like to get out for a walk tomorrow if possible... though I really should just stay home and take care of the thousands of chore around the house I've been putting off or downright ignoring.

I have guys coming over to work on the place next week, and they're going to need access to areas currently piled with guitars. That might sway my choices.

Plus: I ran out of my presentable clean laundry several days ago, and I've been wearing the absolute dregs of my wardrobe since... I really should take care of that.

well better day today. Sniper Elite 3 is crazy. playing on the authentic difficulty, not sure why i want to throw my controller through the screen after spending an hour getting through a base and getting killed have to restart from the beginning, on the other difficulties i guess there are check points, but i don't really want to blow through the game that fast. tried the multiplayer...not my style. i prefer call of duty's to that. battlefield is the best though..

Cool Guy A pathy

Gave up on looking for my woman. I started having a happy life without her, and discovered that every time I tried to get some female to be 'my woman,' she would phuck up the equation. I still believe she might come along, but she would have to fit into my happy life and NOT TRY TO CHANGE ME.

Meh. Meanwhile, the hotties at the bar are always there. And emotionally disposable.

Been working real hard all week. Barbecued several pigs worth of ribs for the public, and made my famous 'campfire beans' to go along with it. Also flipped a grip of ten dollar cheeseburgers. On my days off, I think I'll reward myself by Browsing the local pawn shops and antique malls in search of German bayonets.

Question Riches of Asia

Instead of a bayonet, I found an old, exotic looking three panel screen from southeast Asia.



The panels are batik. The first one features an elephant battle with classic weapons.



Middle panel: a freaky looking ship!



The third panel features another elephant battle.



$45

Well, the girl of my dreams is now married. Worst day ever. It was a faint hope, but I couldn't help it - she was truly one in a million. Not that I've been hung up on her and not pursuing other girls. On the contrary, in the time I've known her I've probably been shot down by at least two dozen girls. Dammit I suck at life.

My first love, from high school, married a super nerdy looking gynecologist.

I laughed my ass off when I saw his picture on 'classmates.com.' Really, I think she could have done better. Then again, she had decided as a teen that money would always be her priority in a man, one reason why we didn't work out...

decided to go hang out with that girl i really like....went hiking. idk i think i'll just stick around for a while, at least i'm happy being friends with her, and perhaps i'll move past the friend zone someday. i'm not saying she doesn't have flaws, everybody does...but i've known her for 2 years, and she's worth sticking around for, even if it's long enough til she finds someone else. lol then i can be miserable like keyan over here. i really hope that doesn't happen, but i have no luck finding a decent girl anywhere, in college they're all in their 18-22 range, the bar girls just want one night stands, and the ones in the military are whores (putting that lightly)...

i'm just gonna try to chill, do the ignore the phone thing and see if she chases me...i wish it was easier for me. but nothing good ever comes easy in my experience.

Ah... hello Insomnia, my old nemesis.

Been awake since 2:30 am... after going to bed at 11:30.

I guess I really didn't need to function this week or anything.

Spent an afternoon updating all the firmware and software on the mixing board and all the input/output rack gear, iPads, and attendant control and multitrack computers.

Kinda scary, especially on less than 4 hours sleep (I'm glad I had some help, or I may have royally screwed it up...) but it's done, and apparently it all works again. And is several points better (V 2.04 from V 1.70...)

Whee.

I'm told there are lots of new features and big bug fixes... but looking it over after replugging all the connections and making sure audio is still passing I didn't see too many differences. I guess when I'm in a show I may notice them more.

Time to head home, and hopefully actually sleep tonight.

And maybe get some more laundry done... if I'm not too exhausted.

had a crazy dream this morning that i was at a range with my buddies sighting in my ar15, and then in the middle of a war-torn city, buildings falling and ****.
