@stuffisthings please, the answer is a 30 rack of icehouse/busch/natty.
thank you for always being a patron of good poetry, 'Pin!
@hellolovely I mean, I'll admit to reading the odd fan fiction derived from something I'm meh about but I have no idea why you would be here then?
Oh my god Harry and Karen. You made this right for me.
@lasso tabasco In general I've used it as validation, curiousity, and revenge (if I'm being brutally honest). But recently, even though it was an AWFUL faketionship or whatever, he got dumped bad, and I took pity and tried to wingman for him, and knew he totally just wanted to fuck to like feed his mama hijo ego, but you know, I really knew as T. Swift says, NEVER EVER EVER, so... the sex was just ok, but I felt like I did a good deed. You gotta commit to what you want though and just know, once you fuck, especially if its good (which let's be real, it will be, ex-sex is confusing and weird), he'll want it again and you might want it to.
Long story short: do you want to get back together? Because if you do, do not have sex.
@Gulf of Finland oh man I FEEL YOU. Good luck. You're worth shit that is exciting and awesome. As someone who is pretty okay at being alone, my tips are just invest in your platonic friends and their relationships? This helps especially with the long monogamous hetero types, srs.
@cee @H.E. Ladypants oh man, read some Eva Illouz ("Cold Intimacies") because the third lecture made me think about how there's no escaping this anywhere in online dating and overall sort of made me incredibly depressed but then thinking about going on OKC again?
@CRINDY Aw, man, it can be really really rough. Totally echoing @skeedaddle + @elissa_what in that its pretty normal to take some time. Living at home can be totally isolating (hello bottles of 2 buck chuck in my highschool bedroom whee!) but what honestly helped me was getting some routines in. I got way into cycling and baking bread and generally recipes.
What field did you graduate in? (2008 English major here HA HA HA) It might get to any job is better than none, so pump your friends or anyone for some info. I bolted for a farm three months into my malaise and managed to snag one when I got back (fuckin' startups admin), moved to the city, lah dee dah. But five years later I'm doing a mildly related grad degree and thinking that many many things have changed since age 22. It is not all downhill from here. It will get better. OH and please don't jump straight into graduate school. I think.
@Homestar Runner This seems genius! Also YEAH what is it with the delay? (Oh right its because shaving is an enormous pain) I get super stoked to keep my undercut in shape but bikini area? Hell no.
@SmartCookie thanks! My cheap attitude just says tweeze, but I have no idea what I'm doing. And yeah, @supernovice, I just feel like maybe I "should"? Like, its holding me back from being taken seriously? Oh god. Beauty. But thank you for the depilatory advice. The internet was the worst.
