Last night I was at a small gathering for my friend's musical performance. There were eight people there and two of them were strangers to me and to another fellow who was there, but they apparently…Continue
"I'm a woman with 40 minutes to kill at the end of a long work week, so I'll weigh in. It sounds like you've got your walls under control with framing movie posters. Nothing wrong with posters but framed is much classier than…"
"I agree that To Kill a Mockingbird describes some manly virtues and particularly, the character of Atticus Finch offers much to be commended and perhaps emulated. I also think Plato's Republic, and other Socratic dialogues, as well as the…"
"Thanks for that. I guess it's an interesting topic, if people keep reviving it, I don't happen to be a "regular" here so I understand if most of you have already covered the topic thoroughly. I am reading the previous comments…"
"I personally do not, but I also believe that you need to have "room in your life" before you decide to share it with another. It wouldn't be fair of me to date and then snap at a decent guy for "smothering" me because he has…"
"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "
"Please excuse me is this was already mentioned upthread, I didn't have time to read all 21 pages of comment. Interestingly, phrases like "confirmed bachelor" and "evergreen bachelor" were occasionally used by newspapers as…"
"I am a woman and perhaps not the best-qualified to comment on this - sorry for barging in! We just say "best friends" "close friends" or "BFFs" but for some reason, the same relationship between men is called a…"
"Perhaps a nice customized item embroidered, engraved, or stamped with your frat letters or logo? You can get some really nice custom items these days, not just cheap beer cozies or mouse pads, but for example, a Woolrich wool stadium blanket or…"
"It's just a matter of overcoming my social awkwardness - and accepting that most people will not make introductions. I have to be fair to my acquaintainces and not criticize them for ignoring 19th-century etiquette manuals. I am not…"
"That's odd because I always thought that you shouldn't say "hey" to strangers to get their attention - "hey" is slang to be used only around close friends or family, but admittedly I'm not well-versed in modern…"
"No. Wait until the relationship ends, then pursue her. It's not okay to be complicit in her infidelity, no matter how fun it may seem. You are hurting another man and that is wrong, even if the man is a total stranger. It may be that…"
"It's been that way ever since the TV networks started the live gavel to gavel coverage of the confabs back in the 1950s. Anyway, both conventions were nothing more than the anointing of the chosen one. Both candidates benefited…"
"Disclaimer. I've never used online dating.
But it seems to me that the way people interact online has changed. The long introduction once favoured by the match.com and similar sites which lets people match up a bunch of stuff seems to have…"
"To start, the Aperos:
At the beginning, there was only the Aperos, a realm of reality beyond the what the five senses of men easily know. It is shaped not by winds or rains, but by the wills of those who can interact with it. Without input it is…"
Mythopoeia is defined as "the making of myths". In this thread, right here, right now, let us make a collaborative mythology, because why not.We can add little post to it, and keeping developing it for as long as some of us remain interested. See More
"You can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped. Protect your boys. Let her know you're there to help if she needs it. Otherwise ... you might as well mind your own business. She's not going to listen…"
My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years. After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together. She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together. She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin. Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
