     I know you wouldn't be in this position since you are all waiters but you have male friends and talk to them.

    Hey, waiters can have girlfriends, the fact that we don't is pure coincidence...

     

    Anyway I think the only explanation is that your gaze has a Cupidic effect and you should embrace your power and make eye contact with people everywhere you go.

    @SG1 I am boycotting the NFL because of the player's disrespect for the flag...

    As Hillary would say, I am so Deplorable that I went to work instead of watching that trash...

    @Dave1985 Yeah I just never liked the sport...I just always found it boring...As far as the players disrespecting their country...that is pathetic. My dad and his siblings immigrated to the US from North Africa. One reason was because the government was corrupt as hell and dictated everything they could do... their president was in office for nearly 30 years and managed a 99% approval rating lol...After high school, the government told them what jobs they could apply for, how much income they were allowed to make, where they could live, what they could publicly say or not say and et cetera. The other reason was due to religious persecution. They could not get jobs, attend college and were denied housing simply because of their Christian faith. My dad's brother, who was a captain in the US army, recently had a party...calling it his " Coming to America party" It was celebrating his love for the US and when he became a citizen over 50 years ago.

    I really don't think some of those players have a clue as to how lucky they are to live in this country. Sure you can be disappointed or not approve of things but you should still recognize the opportunities, freedoms and privileges you have living in the states...if you can't respect your country, then leave. Go live somewhere else where you can show the proper respect. I hear Nigeria, North Korea or Aleppo are great this time of year :P.

    What is disrespectful about the kneeling NFL players? They're protesting an issue they believe needs changing and want America to be better. That seems patriotic. Why is one's conduct during the singing of the national anthem seen as such a significant indicator of one's level of patriotism? How does protesting the way they are protesting mean they aren't grateful they live here and proud of other aspects of their country? 

    It seems weird to me that NFL games are used so much as a stage for patriotism anyway. I think it's partly a marketing ploy because their target demographic likes patriotic displays.

    Personally, I don't like to say the pledge of allegiance because it feels cult-ish and I feel like having the national anthem sung at every single sports event is over-using it. Doesn't mean I'm not glad I popped out of a vagina here, but it seems weird to me to be ultra-patriotic towards any particular nation. 

    I'm all for boycotting the NFL though. I lost interest in football, and I can't watch anymore without thinking about all the brain trauma anyway.

    Since you asked so nicely....

    Sometimes I wish we didn't delete users' accounts except in special circumstances, but I can't say I'm sad he's gone. He always annoyed me but I never felt like engaging with him. He'd probably just call me an effeminate (the alt-right-christian way of saying "faggot" I guess) libtard heathen or something.

  4. I think it's more common for waiters to abstain from other things because waiting tends to line up with conservative belief systems that believe in abstaining from other things.

    I drink occasionally and primarily to get drunk because I enjoy it and it knocks the edges off, allowing me to make friends and bonds I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. It also leads to some hilarious moments. I hope to try other recreational drugs as the opportunities present themselves.

    I've been abstaining from sugary food for almost a year and a half and have lost like 40 lbs. Plan to abstain from sugary foods for the rest of my life, as I'm pretty much an addict and it's been the best health-decision of my life to cut them out.

  5. Welcome back!

    I'm not too active any more, and a lot of the people from back in the day seem to either have left or just lurk these days. For me I just got busy with life and haven't had time or energy to post when I do happen to visit the site, and just drifted apart from everyone I used to talk to.

    Cool to hear things are good for you.

    I'm looking at my old posts and while some of my posts and "beliefs" were really advanced and wise beyond my years, I can't help cringing hard at some of the others haha.  Some of my views on things have changed completely.

    I hear that. lol. I'll occasionally stumble upon one of my old posts and it's cringe city. Even sometimes when I still agree with my past self.


  6. Pretty sure always being the initiator sucks for everyone. 

    Ashley could have let Jake be the initiator at the beginning and still ended up at the exact same place 10 years later. Plenty of men (and women) stop "chasing" at some point, even if they were the initiator at first. It takes two, at the beginning and ten years later.

    I don't think it's smart to look at two relationships and make sweeping generalities about life and gender and relationships. This just looks like the author picked a couple situations that fit their worldview and made a cookie-cutter post out of it.

  7. I've called myself an atheist for about 4 years now and started doubting about 2 years before that. The doubt hit me all of a sudden but going from that to accepting that I didn't believe anymore and moving on was definitely a drawn out and often painful process. I'm happier now and hope to one day soon be more open with my family and friends about it without feeling weird. (Former Christian; raised Christian from birth to college)

    For me the most interesting and toughest part has been having to figure out all of my beliefs, morals, etc. from scratch without a guide or dogma to start from. Worth it though in my opinion.

    Good luck with your new outlook and, no offense to others, congrats!

    I thought it was common knowledge that ALL birds are dinosaurs... The ones closest to dinosaurs are chickens and turkeys... I wonder if all dinosaurs tasted that good...

  9. Hey Mark, good to hear from you. I hadn't checked out your blogs before; I'll have to remember to check out your thoughts on the Disney movies I like.

     

    I'm doing pretty well. I finally got an engineering job back in January and while it's no dream job by any means the people are pretty cool, it's not too stressful, and it's allowing me to live decently and save up some money while I figure out what I really want to do.

    Still single (I thought you were gonna say you got married or something and I was going to be like, "So that's the secret, leaving the site!")

    As you may be able to see, the site has quieted down a lot. A shame, too, because we seem to have a steady stream of new people. I think it might be a nature of the site that the regulars get what they can get out of the community and move on with their lives. I've thought a lot about it...maybe we need a lot more not-so-much-about-waiting discussions to keep people around. I myself haven't been posting much. I generally check in once or twice a day on my phone to look at new posts and delete spam, but I haven't had the time or the attention span to participate much.

    How do you like blogging? I've been thinking about getting into that world. (Partly to vent my thoughts on certain things but mostly to have a base of operations for some artistic ambitions I have.) I already bought several domain names but haven't set anything up yet. 


  10. Things you could try:

    - Wear a Native American chieftain feather hat. 

    - Get swol.

    - Medieval torture

    - When a female approaches,  go into an aggressive stance. Heels raised,  weight on the balls of your feet,  feet shoulder width apart,  chest high,  arms raised high above your head with open palms and curled fingers pointed towards the female.  Bob your head up and down. This distorts your actual height and allows the *Matthew Stance(TM) to create its illusion. Also continuously flex the muscles in your face and neck. Not only is this intimidating and thus alluring to the female, but it also turns the skin an attractive shade of red, assuming you are light skinned.

     

     

    *Results from employing the Matthew Stance(TM) may vary. Not tested on humans. Incorrect use of the Stance can result in injury or death. Consult your doctor prior to use. Women that are nursing or pregnant may be more susceptible to the Stance, due to their heightened need for a powerful male companion.
