Why is it so hard to meet someone?Page 17 of 20    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)
It's not hard to meet someone.
I meet people everyday.
What's hard is meeting someone you
like or someone you're compatible with.
Someone that doesn't turn your head
into mush and make you want to poke your
eyeballs out with spoons.


I think it gets a little harder as we get older
because so many have been there and done that
and don't want to deal with it again, maybe we
become less flexible or our tolerance level is maxed
out.

Either way, just don't hang around with nimcompoops
or people who dim your mojo. Great people usually hang
around with other great people...I try to gravitate towards
great people with lives.

So, BBE thinks "I know who I think you're talking about" but, he don't wanna take the risk and say who. But if I say it first, i'm sure he'll suddenly guess correctly :) lol.


Lets look at what you said before.....

I do know of a forum member others think are attractive. I think her photos are too blurry to tell, and to be terribly blunt, i'm not impressed by her. but so what, others are, and she's very friendly. it might be a part of the culture of her locale, or it might be that she spent time around someone abusive and so she's quick to pour sugar on any fight she sees. doesn't matter, she's the apple of many of an eye here, and that's good for her. its likely true in her life as well, or at least I hope so for her.

I'm not sure I'd agree about Blurry Pics..... But the Rest of the Attributes Listed....
Attractive, Friendly, Tries to De-escalate a Fight....
There is only one Regular longtime Female Poster, that I can think of that meets the Criteria...

A Blond Southern Lady, who has posted about supporting Trump....

I hope Ben's wife didn't die in a fireball. impossible according to google
Electrical burns, yes.


Quija, my sister-in-law did die by a large fireball. A man witnessed the tragedy. (according to my brother) There weren't any remains. No funeral - just a wake. Why would I or anybody make up something like that?

You realize if you tie copper wire around the two ends of a light plug, and then plug it in - there will be a small fireball. No doubt! Perhaps Memtoo will try it and get back to us.

Apparently large fireballs are normal when a down power line comes in contact with the pavement. Take a few seconds and watch the following video. (There are a few on Youtube)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQftDhgC51A

A co-worker's son (Michael Ferryman) was sent into a posted HIGH VOLTAGE area to remove some weeds. He touched a transformer and was immediately electrocuted. I HEARD there was nothing left of him but a pile of ashes. I don't KNOW! That's what I heard and I believe it. I did work in the electrical field for 38 years (electronics, electrician, electrical instructor and electrical inspector).

Mr. Nnorwegianguy, I must have mistakenly change 'Most' to "All" after adding the forum people and mother-in-law comments. Just an honest mistake or typo - whatever.

Again, rarely do I run into unfriendly and rude people (in person). I don't recall any of those people who appear to be unfriendly being attractive.

Well, maybe Caroline Kennedy might be considered attractive. I held the door open for Caroline and her two daughters at the entrance to the Kennedy Library. She didn't thank me or even give me a friendly smile or nod. That might be kinda rude and not being friendly. It didn't bother me because my girlfriend and I got good seats to an awards presentation (the people inside the library mistakenly thought we were with Caroline and were her quests to that event).

I smiled the entire time Katie Couric (or a look & sound alike beauty) lectured me on my poor and dangerous driving ability. Granted, I wouldn't have been so agreeable and friendly if she didn't look so great. (a google search afterwards showed Couric lived in nearby Jacksonville area at the time).

Anyway, that woman remained friendly while she was scolding me. Her driving lesson was brief and I did offer to take her for a drink at a bar overlooking the ocean. I didn't consider her rejection or abrupt departure being unfriendly or rude. Yes, Mr. C T, I would have licked the sole of her foot if that made her happy. Even suck on a toe or two in hope of getting something in return.

Fireballs are rare, but they are real. I did see one on a power line once.

It's not just mingling with people. Most observations of unfriendly people are done 2nd-hand, and it doesn't require a scene to be made or anything freakishly rude by any stretch. They're just noticeably socially withdrawn from interacting with some persons outside folks they know, even where such interaction isn't "stepping on one's turf" by any means. I've been to plenty of social environments where folks can be cliquey and if you don't know someone they know, you'd expect more to be unfriendly to you than being friendly. Unfriendly doesn't require being outright rude or anything -- just socially withdrawling from the other person (where being Friendly would be the opposite). People will "read the crowd" and see where the friendly ones are and the ones with the higher % chance of being socially uptight (non friendly) are. It's one thing a single guy needs to know. He has to put up with engaging with unfriendly gals when mingling in social environments, and not let that prevent him from sitting in the corner just mall-watching. :)

But I agree, it doesn't take an attractive woman at all to be that way -- and it's an exaggerated notion that an attractive gal will be socially unfriendly outside her peers (or with them), VS a not-so-attractive woman. Much the same as some say fat people are "jolly", which isn't exactly true either. But in the end, I observe people being uptight/unfriendly all the time -- and I spend little time in clubs. But I also observe most people being in the neutral zone or friendly.

She didn't thank me or even give me a friendly smile or nod. That might be kinda rude and not being friendly. It didn't bother me because my girlfriend and I got good seats to an awards presentation

Yeah, that would be projecting unfriendliness, sure. If you saw a person like that carry themselves in an uptight manner when interacting with others who weren't close to them, yeah, they're notably not friendly. I see that all the time in environments where I just assume gals are sick of being hit on by guys, having a rough day at work, etc. and just aren't an all and all Friendly person in general combined with that (maybe they're neutral-zone and having a bad day? who knows). When you're not their peer -- you'll see said types around if ya pay attention. Not hard. But at the same time, one's not doing a consensus, and we're used to it to Some degree, as we should I suppose, when around strangers.

Maybe here in the north, there's not so much "southern comfort". ;)

But of course Ben....you held the door open for Caroline Kennedy, she was rude to you and you were thought to be her guest, and Katie Couric lectured you on your driving and your sister in law went Poof. Who wouldn't believe these shockers. (Pun intended). Lol.

Memmtoo or raisedinhill, how many ID's do you have?

When I held the door open for Caroline, I didn't realize who she was at the time. (I didn't realize it might be Couric until she drove away. I immediately thought she looked and sounded familiar. I had several unusual celebrity encounters over a long lifetime. I'm sure you wouldn't believe any of them. Why should I care what you think? Obviously you don't get out much or go to places where you might run into somewhat celebrities.)

After we entered the library, my girlfriend said that was Caroline Kennedy. The beginning of the following video is seconds after we entered the library. Do you doubt I took that video?

https://youtu.be/Qdjt2Q0LH2Y

I know it's a waste of time trying to prove anything to you. The video I posted showing the fireball had the words 'made a hole' in the title. Ya never noticed those words - right?

I have an unlimited number of IDs. . . so if you are the psycho behind my nukings . . . keep at it. Is it your contention that Couric worked in Jacksonville, was an anchor in Jacksonville, and that's how you knew who she was?

Anyway, you shouldn't care what I think, but I do think you are pathological. I understand lying for your own self interests, if you have something to gain, but I never understood people who lied just for the hell of it. I get its a mental disorder, and I learned long ago that it is not a rare disorder either. But no skin off my nose.

Ooooh! I know who y'all are talking about!

Just between us....I hear she's NOT all that Hot and she's crazier than a bedbug. Probably dumber than a box of rocks, too.

But she seems happy so it's all good! :D

I figured out why it's so hard to meet someone.... it's because we look for a needle in a haystack instead of looking for a happy crazy bedbug in a box of rocks ;-)

She doesn't pour sugar... pure honey ;-)... all that's missing are a dozen donuts and mirrors on the ceiling :-)

Lovely picture KJ
You gotta remember to spread that sugar so some of the " men" don't get all butt hurt
Or they eat far too much fatty food causing said BH
Did someone say shoe shopping? My talons hardly fit into most shoes but they so fun, and then, you can bring the home, sit them on the Counter
And worship at the altar of virgin shoes
Oops, that was my outside voice

I met a man just a couple days ago. He introduced himself to me. I was quite surprised by this, as I never get approached by men anymore. Then I noticed he was blind. This is a true story.

Oh, come awn, really? :)

You: "So, do I look pretty?"
Him: "Well, I can't say for sure, but..."
You: "Wait wait wait -- you're not exactly earning brownie points here, pal. Do you think I look pretty or not??"
Him: "Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and my eyes---"
You: "Cut the poetic crap, Mr Cool with a magic wand who can't put his shades down. Quit dodging the question. It's a Yes or No question!"
Him: "(sigh) ... Well, actually, no woman has looked better than you to me in all my existence."
You: "Geez, now you're laying it on too thick. Learn some game! Next!"
