  1. He texted me yesterday evening already, with a kind follow-up message. Nah. I just mentioned her because she was mentioned a few posts earlier.
  2. I am enjoying your trying to determine my geographical location, complete with the Slovenia/Slovakia mixup (that's a classic ). It is Slovenia indeed, and we do mostly try to forget about Melanija. So I haven't been kidnapped, assaulted, murdered, or bored to death by Creepy Stranger From The Internet, which is good news. In fact, I had a pleasant time. The person turned out to be funny, good conversation partner, and actually quite good-looking. He has a great corny sense of humour. We spent more than three hours talking, drinking a lemonade, eating ice cream, and walking around, which I consider very long for a first meeting. The words "let's hear from each other again" and "next time" have been mentioned. So that's that I suppose. What now?
  3. I am supposed to meet Mr. Creepy Stranger From The Internet in 20 minutes. I will post in a few hours to prove I have not been kidnapped/sold/assaulted/murdered by boring conversation. If I don't ... then IDK, contact anybody you know in this country to check on me I suppose.
  4. I do like summer. I don't like being at work in summer. :p At least tomorrow I have a short workday.
  5. Uh. It is very hot. Today and tomorrow are crazy days at work. After that, things will slow down.
  6. I hope it turns out good at least. I think my idea on what to do when I first get to know a new person is very different than yours. :p Also, I still don't know if I will be allowed to travel as far as Germany without having to quarantine first any time soon. Going anywhere outside of the Schengen area is probably not going to be possible anyway ...
  7. I, uh, think I just set up a date for Wednesday with the guy with whom I have been chatting online for a few days. I was the one who brought the idea up this time! I suppose now I need to find a friend to inform where I will be to make sure to reach out and check if everything is safe, right? How's that for expanding my comfort zone, eh, @Tywin et al.?
  8. Right. I teach in a high school, so that is all that is on my mind these days. In primary and secondary school, we have a 1-5 grading system, with 1 being non-satisfactory and 5 being the best. And there are only full numbers, none of that decimal complications. At university, there is a 1-10 grading system, with anything below 6 being non-satisfactory (I think most of the professors just grade between 5 and 10). I know Pulp Fiction counts as a classic and all ... but I just didn't like it. Oh, I am trying to get out of my comfort zone, no worries. I just want to do it at my own pace!
  9. It doesn't. Our grading system is different. And we also don't have summer courses that count as a part of the secondary education (only for university students), you have to pass the subjects at school and that's it. If it's that creepy as you and @Argonath Diver say, I probably wouldn't like it much ... you are talking to the person who thought Pulp Fiction was disturbingly violent. Ah, I didn't know that, thanks for correcting me. To be on topic, I watched a cute movie with a curious title The Guernesey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It takes place in 1946 in England.
  10. It't almost summer holiday, it is not like I will be graded anymore, so I don't need to do this assignment! I mean ... how many Slovene movies have you seen, on the other hand? I am sure I have seen more American ones than you have seen those ...
  11. I haven't watched A Clockwork Orange, but anyway, this is an odd video too ...
  12. Wow. USA must be a weird place. Here there are just pictures with dogs, cats, cars, motorbikes ... many pictures from the beach too.
  13. I haven't seen any fish pics. Are they common in other parts of the world?
  14. We moved the conversation from Tinder to another app yesterday. This allowed me to see his whole name, so I obviously googled him. Now I feel much better about talking to an unknown person because I can at least check some things online (his first name is quite common, but his surname is unusual, so it was easy to find that) and I trust the whole thing better.
  15. I mean, the messages don't sound jerky or dangerous, but I am still not completely sure about meeting in person, even with safety precautions. I think I will exchange a few more messages first. But I suppose the danger of somebody lying about literally anything on the Internet is still there.
  16. I, uh, think, a hint has been made about meeting somebody with whom I exchanged a few friendly messages in person. The hint came from his side obviously, I am waaaay too shy and distrustful and all. What have I gotten myself into now?
  17. IDK, I suppose I just don't like how they look. They are all taken from the same angle and I prefer to see what people are doing with their hands instead of knowing they were just holding a phone. Maybe it takes me out of the immersion of a picture as a moment in life knowing that somebody was holding a phone to take it, you can't really see one doing something in it. Not really a hill I am willing to die on either, I just generally don't like them.
  18. I don't have many photos of myself either, those I have are mostly from holidays or special events. I still avoid making selfies and just used slightly older pictures on my profile - it is not like I changed that much in the last year or so (I don't have any photos from the covid time, it is not like I went anywhere to want to make it memorable ...). I don't even consider the "this person doesn't have friends" angle, I just think selfies in general are silly. I suppose in front of historic sights is still better than in the bathroom mirror. Thank you. And same to you!
  19. So, so many bathroom selfies. Do people seriously not realise that a bathroom selfie is just ... IDK, not the best thing you can post on there? Or do people actually fall for them? Am also having the first conversation that goes beyond some "hi, how are you" smalltalk. (Okay, no, it is actually the second one. The first one stopped responding after a few messages.)
  20. ... After spending about a year working where I work ... teenagers can be more stupid than you think. And in some ways, much more clever too, so they are always full of surprises. Tour managed. It was about 4 hours all together. Some parts were really hot, especially when we went uphill. But now I am already home and showered, which was very refreshing. I need to make something to eat. Enjoy the long weekend! We have a national holiday coming on the 25th, so that will be a long weekend for me.
  21. I mean, as is known, I am very much ... not into sports. A tour up a hill is not my idea of a fulfilling workday. But oh well. I hope I get assigned to some group of well-behaved kids at least. (And that we don't lose any in a forest this time, which happened the last time I went on an outing.) Long weekend? Is there a holiday coming? Our weekend will be of the usual length.
  22. Walking tour sucks. It will probably be way too hot and boring. Ah well. Feel better soon.
  23. Yup. Today we had an overly long meeting ... I am finally home now. For the next two days, I have to be at school very early and tomorrow I also have to go on a walking tour on some hill close to the school as a sport activity for the students ... it is supposed to be sunny and hot. Yay. She took it today, after a lot of frustration regarding scheduling and communication issues. What is weird about it? And what is with the new avatar? Did you draw a country in the Euro championship thread?
  24. Bleh. I have had this profile for about a week and I am already bored and annoyed with it. I was cynical about the whole app thing before, I think I am even more now. I keep getting shown profiles from other countries. I don't like almost any profile I see. After seeing some of them, they just end up looking all the same. Not liking them makes me feel guilty because I am being judgemental, and I know it is bad to judge people solely according to their looks on a bad photo. I don't like people to judge me solely by their first visual impression of me, so why am I doing that to others? The first few people I swiped right were instant matches, the last few aren't, which immediately hurts my self-esteem. Two conversations don't seem to go anywhere beyond smalltalk. The guy who actually started a meaningful conversation hasn't responded to my last message. (And the "invite you out" opening message person is not going to be answered.) Swiping is boring and annoying at the same time, and makes me only feel lonelier than I already am. So yeah, after the first few profiles I saw, the novelty wore off and I don't really think I am going to keep trying to work with this much longer. Sorry for the rant, I suppose.
  25. A person who tries to start the conversation by just inviting one to go somewhere together doesn't really need to be answered, right? I think it shows a lack of judgement about personal safety.
