i wonder how many people im in the “id be down if you asked” zone with
Kathryn. 24. Still trying to figure the rest out.
I actually went on a date with someone from OkCupid. He was a nice enough guy, surprisingly enough. We got along okay, he was sweet. But he was definitely way more into me than I was into him. And he doesn’t really have his life together, he was…
Thank you all for the excellent advice! I have a bit more perspective and I definitely need to do what makes me comfortable. I only met him once - I don’t owe him anything. And dragging it along to be nice or spare his feelings helps no one and ultimately will only make me more uncomfortable. So decision: I’m not going to out with him this weekend or ever. I’m going to be (mostly) honest and tell him I’m not interested. If he gets creepy or starts begging/harassing, I’ll block his number. I’m going to permanently delete my okcupid account to eliminate any temptation to return. And I’m going to save a copy of that gif because it’s my new favorite.
I actually went on a date with someone from OkCupid. He was a nice enough guy, surprisingly enough. We got along okay, he was sweet. But he was definitely way more into me than I was into him. And he doesn’t really have his life together, he was constantly interrupting me, and he smokes. HUGE DEAL BREAKER. Like, I watched 2 of my grandparents and my aunt die from smoking-related diseases, and my remaining grandfather has COPD. Plus, I work for a company that designs testing equipment for COPD and asthma. Nuh-uh.
But I had fun, so I was willing to give it another shot. I told him I was super busy finishing my Master’s until this weekend (the date was last week). So what does he do? He texts me last Friday saying, ‘hey I know you said you were super busy, but let’s do something tomorrow’. Which I find off-putting. Like, I said I was busy, so respect that please and thank you. I know he was probably just being friendly and wanted to see me and provide an opportunity for a break and blah blah blah, but I dunno. It felt disrespectful.
So he texted me again yesterday saying he wanted to take me out this weekend to celebrate being done with my Master’s. So I said okay because I was still somewhat willing to give it a try. I gave him some suggestions of what we could do, one of which was going to a baseball game. And then we agreed that we’d plan Friday/Saturday. BUT THEN he texts me today asking if he should buy tickets to the game Saturday. Like, dude. 1. We didn’t agree on anything. And 2, and much more importantly, I’m still super fucking busy trying to finish my fucking paper which is due on Friday. Give me some fucking space. At this point, I just don’t want to hang out with him at all anymore. I get he had a good time, but holy fuck. I met him once and I feel like I’m being smothered. Maybe if I were more into him, I’d feel different, but this is just all too much.
So what do I do? I don’t really want to go out with him anymore, but I don’t feel like I really have a good explanation for why (not that I need one, I just feel I do because of reasons). But I don’t really want to bail either, and I don’t feel like ignoring him is the best option (though it’s not like I’d ever see him again unless I intentionally went to the same bar). I just don’t know how to approach the situation and I feel really uncomfortable about the whole thing.
IT’S 10PM WHY THE FUCK IS IT STILL THIS HOT?!
Colorado, get your shit together.
IHust wiOke upmy whol hOUSSe
I’m telling this story again b/c fuck it but anyways I was playing D&D and one of my friends went “brown bear brown bear what do you see” and on cue three of us turn to him and like, death metal screech “ALLLL”.
The dude goes completely pale faced. I saw true horror in his eyes.
He didn’t know the joke.
So apparently dude just had three of his best friends demonically screech at him for no goddamn reason.
I do not think I will ever cause that level of sheer terror and confusion ever again in my life.
On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Marvel Comics announced that the character of Thor is now female thanks to a switch in possession of the Mjölnir.
The title, not the person under the mask, is switching gender because of who now holds the hammer.
“It’s a huge day in the Marvel Universe. Thor, the God of Thunder, he messed up, and he’s no longer worthy to hold that damn hammer of his,” said Whoopi Goldberg in an announcement set up by Marvel this morning. “For the first time in history, that hammer is being held by a woman. That’s right. Thor is a woman.”
Thor series writer Jason Arron stressed in a follow up statement that this is the new Thor. “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”
Added Marvel in a statement, “no longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name THOR.”
The new series, Marvel says, will “speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for super hero comic books in America: women and girls.”
OH MY GOD IM SO EXCITED
