This is about 10% of everything that's wrong with modern North America.

See, this is good, because it makes me ask "Would I wait two years to date either of them?" And if the answer is no, then are these really prospects for serious relationships, or are they just kneejerk rebounds after breaking up with my girlfriend two months ago?

Look, I don't know either of these girls, but are you suggesting that you're mentally attracted to both of these seventeen year olds and that it's not merely some physical attraction? We've been down this path before, but I find it hard to believe someone of your intelligence really could relate to either of these young girls in any sort of meaningful way.

This is about 10% of everything that's wrong with modern North America.

That's a weird percentage to just throw out there, but what do you mean? Are you suggesting the problem lies with the job seeker (in the general sense) or that it's the economic state of the, uh, continent?

I think there's a case to be made on either side.

I used to drink milk out of the carton sometimes.
What's wrong with that? O_____o

Well, if I admit to it being physical attraction, that officially makes me creepy (in my current state of residence), neh?

Eh, I don't know. Maybe. I definitely think it's a possibility. And they're not really that teen-ish.

Well, I guess the one kinda is.

I don't really know them well enough to know, I guess. What I learned from my last (and so far only) relationship is that I have a tendency to project what I want to see on top of what I don't know.

Still, I have to say that working in customer service for the last nine months has made me question the correlation between maturity and age. But the projecting is the important part. Gotta cut down on that.

Doesn't everyone project onto people they don't know well?

The fact that a college or university education all too often proves useless when looking for a real job in one's field of study. But that's the beginning of an entirely different discussion.

It's probably gonna make a mess because multiple conversations were going on at once and in all the same posts but I moved everything starting with BriGuy's post to Not At The Dinner Table here in its own spin-off thread

Oh well

You know, I never learned to shell sunflower seeds in my mouth

I'll move this back over here:

When you've been dating the person in question for a year, it's kind of a problem.

One of them probably. The other one I dunno.

Okay, okay, you got me...
I refuse to play Luigi's Mansion at any time other than night because the first time i played it was at night when I was little, and it scared me so much. That's pretty much the only reason I was ever scared of the dark. of course, when I play it now, I don't find it too frightening, but when i play it at night, sometimes I can still get that good (scary) feeling.

Well it is a survival-horror game. With creepily surreal architecture and a fantastically cold, lonely atmosphere. Even if the ghosts aren't that scary (and in all honesty a few of the bosses are, for one reason or another), it's an understandably unnerving game if you're sensitive to the element of surprise.

To this day, thinking about Luigi's Mansion makes me uneasy. I am quite easily spooked.

The toddler boss at the end of Area 1 in particular always creeped me out, lol.

Hey.

Y'all remember this?  Well, something similar happened again this weekend at the same camp, with the same girl somehow talking me into doing something far too high off the ground.  Except it was a high ropes course this time instead of a giant's swing.

Anyway, yeah.  I think I might like her.  At least I know her personally and have more in common with her, unlike Emmy Cicierega.  On the other hand, I only see her once a year.  Back to the first hand, I could maybe resort to Facebook to keep in touch.
