  1. Huh? No. I only said that I prefer more academically inclined people for me to associate with, not sportsmen. That is all.
  2. Oh, he is crazy. Basically everybody in thar show is. Also, why should we root for someone male, straigt and white? (That is a reference to a scene from the series.) You should watch it. Well more power to you! I mean, Josh would be entirely too stupid for me, but if you are more into sports, particularly surfing and skateboarding, you would like this character. Yaaaaay! It's confirmed! It's official! The group mind has decided you are great! That was for your BA, right? As far as I remember, you are doing a MA now.
  3. The truth is, everybody in that series is messed up in some way. Maybe they are all just broken. Cue George's trumpets! Maybe I'm just broken, papa pa papa! Maybe I'm just broken! Trumpets now!
  4. You can have it, I don't like it. I would rather I got Greg.

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    How did I just know you would make this reference when I saw you quoted me in this thread ... Thinking about the issue about looking straight into somebody's eyes ... I realise I do not have a problem with that, but that might have to do with the fact that I teach and I am kind of in a position of power over the people I speak to most of the time. But this discussion might be going off topic. So I am going to add that I agree with the article when it notes that living with one's parents might negatively impact one's romantic and sexual life. I am wondering if it is even possible to have a successful one when living with one's parents. I mean, I guess it is, since many people manage that way, but for me, the time when I lived far away from them was the only time I managed to develop anything into that direction. It is much easier.
  6. I mean, I don't know either. Josh is the kind of simple (as in, he is not particularly intellectually talented) friendly guy "who still skateboards", and he is in his late 20s. Is that something you would consider good or bad?

    Are you saying that these two things are mutually exclusive? I think these are two separate things: 1. Human desire can be stimpulated or suppressed easily. 2. Hook up culture is (at least partially) a myth. I do not think one excludes the possibility of the other. I am probably understanding you wrong somewhere. I totally agree the problem is of intimacy and relationships, not only of sex. You are definitely not blockheaded in that. Also, look at us, highly theoretically-minded people, instead of using the dating thread to search/offer practical advice, analysing an article in The Atlantic.

    Yes, very interesting (and yes, long!) article, thanks for linking. I ... recognise myself in some parts, but it is really way too late to comment more. I am interested to see if there will be more discussion about it.
  9. Your daily stupid Buzzfeed quiz. Daaaaaamn, why would the internet do that to me?
  10. Well, there is nothing to congratulate for! Don't be too quick, you might jinx it! I handed in an application, that is all. That is ... universitites for you, in my experience. It all works out in the end, but you don't know how, and it eats up way more of your nerves than necessary.
  11. So I, um kind of handed in another application for a semester abroad. If this goes through, I am moving out of the country (again) next autumn. I love being a student.
  12. What is Rememberance day? We only had st. Martin's day yesterday, which is more or less just a traditional day to drink wine.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    Oh right, probably. But still, of Valencia is not going to be in West Covina, then she probably isn't going to be playing a central role in any episodes but the ones in New York.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    Why cannot it be both? It literally is both. This last episode felt like it went back to the earlier quality! It focused mainly on Rebecca and not on some one-off side character we do not really care about that much, it was emotional, the country song was funny (I still want WhiJo and Darryl together though), and of course it had a song by Paula, which is always welcome. My only complaint would be that I would have liked to see more of Paula being happy bonding with her son before he has to leave - only last episode it really hit her how much she does not know about her children, and now suddenly they are so close? I think the bonding again would have taken more time. Other than that, good episode. Do not really care that much that Valencia is leaving, I do not mind her one way or the other. I am going to be sad if there is going to be less Heather though. And I am wondering if Rebecca will realise the house is too expensive for her to live there alone and she will end up having to move again.
  15. Yes, I like fish, but cannot cook them in any way. I assume it takes a lot of work and time, which I often lack. So I just eat fish when going out in summer mostly. Or well, sometimes fish from a can.
