  2. Maybe the instincts are actually there but they can be suppressed like the fight / flight instinct based on lifestyle, making these aspects different?

    Which In Danger of Extinction Business or Job do you Miss Most?

    I get this blank look from my nieces and nephews talking to them about Beta tapes, VHS, and shaking a Polaroid picture (disappointed at them not pointing out you're not supposed to). Or, photo albums. Physical ones. Like the ones with the sticky side, you pretty much are stuck leaving the photos in permanently. The utter shock mentioning 3D viewers, or Pogo sticks (they think we're talking food), or devil sticks. I tried explaining a 56K modem to them, when they were complaining that their Netflix movie was loading at about 1MB per second (they complained about a 10 second lag). I explained to them, I had to download a song overnight, and make sure nobody was trying to call us. "Wow, you're old!" Or the devastating.. "are you older than grandma!?" But randomness aside--definitely miss Black's. One of the few giants of the retails sphere I was disappointed to see go. *sort of* was disappointed to see Zeller's go. I missed their restaurant for a while as it brought memories. Didn't care about too many of the others, and was happy to see Target fold (just sucks for those who lost their jobs). They never had stock (or at least in my city--and if we're talking staples, this means your supply chain is just horrible), plus thought Canadians had never experienced the stores in the US thus felt like the mass victims of a major bait and switch.
  4. Campaigning off AVEN has always been allowed. Can you point out where you see an AVEN sign up link? The thread I created clearly invites only those who *have* AVEN account to vote for me and leads to the page where people can vote. Nowhere do I ask anyone to make an AVEN account. Also, you don't think its unfair that you are calling me out? Why not look at profiles of all the past AVEN admods, whose first 30 posts are in Arcade, and post their profiles here? A quick search, I already found a beloved ex-admod who has actually done it. Why not ask admods, what made them exclude Arcade posts in 25 post count (loads have admods have used this strategy, perhaps there might be an interesting story here)? Instead of calling me out for doing something which majority of AVEN admods have done, its better you start asking questions which lead to actual truth (and some actual dirt). Here are some more questions for you to ask (I kinda know the answer to these)- Why is there another asexual site (with the same members active on both AVEN and that site)? Why are some admods always on AVEN admod team? How come they never leave the admod team? How *did* they become an admod in the first place? Perhaps you should join AVEN admod team, to understand how AVEN works. Just because you aren't aware of it, doesn't make it unfair. If this particular info shocks you, you better get ready for ER when you find some other truths here. Anyway, I look forward to you posting some of the questions.... if you are seriously interested in truth. Unless your purpose was to just call me out and embarrass me in public.... I have nothing more to say to you.
  5. Hmmmm. Well, I'm not sure if I've had crushes or squishes because of your exact question. I've only had two relationships, both of which started with what I considered a crush. The first fizzled and died. The relationship went on for a year but we were basically just friends hanging out, so it wasn't really dating. The second is the one I'm still in and has been going strong for a while (we've been together about 5 years). I think it's just something about me, though, since my bf said a few months into our relationship he thought my interest had disappeared and it was over.

    These are only Yellow Pages. There doesn't seem to be a white pages in my area. But if they're still taking from an older number bank (really don't wanna think about how long ago '99 actually was), that'd make sense. Because the phone book arrives fresh with all disconnected numbers, including for businesses I know still exist because I have recently gone to them. @Jon A. The B&W one has loose V-Hold, but is mostly fine. The one I need repair help with is also B&W...but is supposed to be colour (RCA ColorTrak...now in black and white!) with visible retrace lines. Sometimes loses picture, and only a hammer (Thick wood console) to the right spot will clear it. And I've never fixed a TV before. But it's gorgeous, and I don't wanna risk destroying it. Also, parts sourcing is a problem. Buying online doesn't let you see things in person. I've gotten so many bum parts that way.

    Hi! I'm a sexual who got out of a relationship that left me with some baggage. Actually, a few of them did. Even the good ones. And I have baggage that I didn't need a partner to gain, I just gained it on my own. But I don't like to define myself by my baggage. I feel that isn't important. This is how I partly define myself today: I am an aspiring tarot reader, a gardener, an animal lover, a trivia geek, a DnD player, a podcast enthusiast, a person who really REALLY wants to travel, a terrible camper who wants to do it again, a foodie who knows that people will roll their eyes when they hear that word but doesn't care, and always on the search for the next adventure. So maybe I do have a little bit of baggage. Maybe I don't have the best relationship with my family at times, maybe I am on a lot of medication, maybe I have other things going on that I haven't talked about on here yet. But that never should be what defines me. I want to be with a person who sees the good in me before seeing the bad. I don't care if my future partner has a little baggage. Because to me, a good relationship is having other people help carry the weight when you need it most.

    If your area is like mine, it's because the white pages hasn't been issued in about a decade or so. I think my grandparents are still listed in mine, and they died in 1999 and 2000. (Their phone wasn't disconnected until several years later, but still.)

    This is along the same lines as the reasoning some incels use to justify their resentment of women, just FYI. The idea is that women who choose to engage in hook-up culture deny the men they're not having sex with of a proper wife, thus they are the cause of all of these men's woes. This is a very dangerous line of thinking that's led to mass murders in people who want to take it out violently.

    PM an AVEN member you've not PM'd before

    almost exclusively romantically into men these days. Demisexual. SoCal. Anti-bigotry and stuck in a really bigoted area. Looking for other anti-exclusionists old enough to know what an 8-track player is. Support groups/social groups for all what I am out here are either tightly gatekept by exclusionist cisgays or skew around age 20. I love young people. I wanted kids. But they're not my peers. My best friend lives six hours away, where I used to live and had to leave to transition safely. There's a Demi group on Meetup, but they've gone dead, and Meetup also skews very young. I live in the U.S. but grew up in Japan, so I share all cultural touchstones with precious few, but what I won't know of American pop culture will be C-list TV that wasn't dubbed and ad campaigns before '90, mostly. Just dying for non-exclusionist, non-bigoted peer interactions with more than one person. Young people aren't unwelcome from PMing me, but, gosh, I just want more people who remember a fair bit of the 20th Century in my life.

    This may not affect you, but actually other people's promiscuity does in fact affect me. Since I am a demiromantic ace, who is planning to engage in sensual behavior, and does desire a partner, it has become exceedingly difficult to find a suitable mate in this backwards society. Do you know why? It's because everywhere I look there are STD/STI infested individuals, and many are saddled with unwanted pregnancies. Not to mention all the people who are carrying loads of emotional and psychological baggage from past flings. I don't want diseases, infections, kids, or an unstable partner. I know what I'm bringing to the table and it is none of what I just listed. The more people sleep around and defile themselves, the less potential partners are available. And I'm not the only one out here trying to find a suitable mate. There are plenty of others trying to find a good match who are not interested in fooling around with all these messy people. Hook-up culture DOES affect others.

    PLANTS!!!

    I haven't started my other plants yet. The seeds need to be refrigerated for about 90 days (!!!) I haven't started doing that yet because I want to make sure I get these plants ready at the right time seasonally. So it might be a while.

    anyone past 50 on here?

    Went to mow the lawn and weed for my disabled buddy, Peggy after the hike today. I am now officially exhausted. A 6 mile hike followed by 2.5 hours of weeding and mowing has worn me out! But it did feel good to see how happy Peggy was to have the job done and she supplied me with cookies when I was done and a heart felt thank you. Now its time to kick back on the couch and watch some TV. Anyone want to place any bets on how long before I fall asleep ???
  21. hello! so, when you have crushes, do they last when a relationship is achieved? like, has something similar to this ever happened: say you had a crush on your friend, and you eventually asked them out and you two started dating. but, as soon as you were together, your feelings basically vanished. you still liked the person, but you didn't really feel anything romantic. every crush i've had, except for one, has ended up like this (if i even dated them, usually the crush fades fairly quickly). thanks everyone!

    i had a panic attack today and feel oddly refreshed. it was, idk, nice? to have a moment to release the build up of my anxiety so i could finally kind of relax.

      I've had many panic attacks, but I don't recall ever feeling refreshed after one of them. 😕

       

      I do feel pretty damn tired afterwards, tho, so I guess that could be relaxing...

    Im really tempted to start getting more into other social medias... like tumblr or something. But then i hear bad things about the people on it and i dunno... plus i really dont know how to blog or anything. 

  25. I saw someone else make a 'want ad,' as is the only way I could think to call it, so here goes: I'm anti-bigotry to the point I've gotten committed as revenge for whistleblowing on a shelter I worked at that shoved Latinos in a back room to ignore and made Asian clients house servants. I got fired and blacklisted from St. Vincent DePaul in Ghost Town, Oakland because I wouldn't stop helping Muslims. I will fight anti-Semites. I have joined efforts to stop bulldozing and gentrification of Cambodia Town. I am Asian, but I'm not Jewish, Muslim, Latino, or Cambodian. I tried to, in December 2016, start an action group to do everything from feed the people that would be cut off food stamps out of our own kitchens, all the way up to that I was prepared to be hiding Muslims/Latinos/etc in my own home from unjust raids. I papered half the town. Who all TOLD me they didn't care. I don't understand how they can look at themselves in the mirror. But apparently, I'M the odd man out. I even come on here, and I see cis aces attack trans aces; I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW ONE CAN FACE AND FIGHT BIGOTRY AIMED AT THEM, AND TURN AROUND AND DO IT TO ANOTHER OPPRESSED CASTE. And the LGBT Centre and dating sites are 100% exclusionist cisgays, 97% of them also white racists, and if not that, they're all 20. (And female, as for trans groups) Being ace AND alcohol-intollerant, anything like bars or anything that starts with deciding you like a stranger is sausage to me. "Bi" is really a legacy definition, but I keep it because I had to fight so hard for it. My interest in women is a rare, fleeting, aesthetic one these days, with almost negative desire to act on it. I am mixed race (Mostly Japanese and Italian, raised in Japan, conditionally white-passing, sometimes also taken for Latino) short, not a looker, non-op (on HRT, pass for cis face-to-face seamlessly) trans male, barren, disabled (not wheelchair) demisexual, sex-favourable but can live without it, need cuddling, hate making out. Looking for another man (cis/trans irrelevant) in the Los Angeles area. What I need is that he matches me on the moral convictions above. He needs to be vehemently opposed to bigotry regardless if it's a caste he's in or not, and be driven to stand up for those in a weaker position than him. Looks mean so little to me, but fighting white supremacists will make me swoon (and join you) Age range 35-50 best. Please be excited about still-running 8-track players and portable B&W TVs with dials. I love showing off all that stuff. I know how to repair them! I can't relocate because of lack of HRT availability and laws protecting me in other places. The Bay Area would be better than here, but I lived over ten years in Oakland. I was very well-known and -recieved in my community. As the wrong gender. I left both due to gentrification and safety in transitioning. I could have been killed if I did it there. This is the second-best place to be for someone like me. Everywhere else is one big 'no.' Not safe. But out here, it's vain hypersexual cisgay exclusionists who love astrology and cry for celebrity divorces, but don't care if their neighbour is killed by cops or deported to a land he's never lived in. And that's all I see out here, and I'm...just really afraid there just isn't anyone for me. Absolutely PM me if I sound compatible to you, but messages of "cheer up, there is still hope you won't die alone" are actually also helpful if you have any "here's why"

    That's a lot of anger towards people whose actions have zero relevance to your life.

    PLANTS!!!

    I am an expert plant murderer extraordinaire and am unable to share a living space with plants for any length of time. For some reason I just can't water the darn things. Normal plants didn't last long at all, and then a few years ago I tried a shelf of cacti and they eventually died too so I gave up while there was still vegetation left in the world. I recently found out about Resurrection Ferns though, and I'm thinking about getting some. They might finally be the plant for me 🤣
