Also @ZF: bugger off. You can make the mature assumption of me saying "girls, she, her" as "boys, he, his". Do you honestly think I care what anyone's sexual preference is? I say "girls, she, her" because that's what Cacturn is talking about.

In any case, you've got to learn how to word your stuff so you don't sound like you're a dick all the time. :I

Being lonely, surprisingly, is actually something by choice. It took me a while to figure that out, while my friends and family kept trying to show me how I'm not actually alone - because I had them.

The only way you can truly be alone is if you're either the last damn person on the planet, or if you choose to be alone and ignore/push away the people around you. Sometimes, you just need a dick like me to penetrate that thick cloud that's obscuring your vision.



So you honestly think that feeling alone and alienated is completely someone's choice? No, no one is ever actually alone but you can sure as hell feel like you are. No matter what, there are going to be people who have legitimate problems with loneliness, depression, things like that, who aren't going to be comforted by the fact that they have family. Family doesn't always get it. And I know the whole personal fable of adolescence is BS, the whole "no one gets me!" but that's not what I'm talking about.

And sometimes the whole dick-penetrating-clouds route isn't the best to take. Empathy works just as well. I don't give a Fire Truck who you are, you've felt lonely. Everyone has, everyone will, even though you're never, by definition, "alone". Hell, I felt lonely when I had a girlfriend, so unfortunately for people who think that'll solve the problem, it won't necessarily.

Likewise to you too.

Well, hey now, I'm not the one patronizing most guys and calling loneliness a choice. :\

You know, I agree with Frau that there are some people out there that have a *real* disability.

For the rest of them, it really is a choice - just as it was for me.

Then don't condescend on people who choose to think cock-first. It's our choice to live life that way.

Condescend? Pfft, after recent events, I often wonder why people choose to live that way!

(plus, there was a typo in my previous post)

To put it bluntly, sex feels real nice. :D
But there's an area we shouldn't venture to on the forums.
UNLESS DONUT WANTS TO HEAR!

Plus, I can 'multitask,' if you will. I've still got a 4.1 GPA, a regular painting regimen, and a growing interest in art history.

I fail to see how muti-tasking fits into this. Plus, I agree that it feels nice; however, it also has the power to really mess with the head on your shoulders too.

I mean, if it's an actual person that died or something, like MLK day or something, go right ahead. I guess what I'm saying is don't make some holiday ripoff simply to force people to spend money.


Someone did die. Feburary 14th is the anniversary of the burial of a martyred saint, supposedly. I say supposedly because there's an assload of saints, assload of Catholic traditions, and it's no longer even noted on Catholic calendars, because the church doesn't actually know squat about Saint Valentine.

St. Valentine's Day sucks because it's another marketing ploy masked as some cultural tradition. It amuses me the amount of anti-Catholics that I know that still acknowledge and celebrate "Valentine's Day." Talk about push overs.

Edit:

Additionally, regarding the "education" bit, the idea behind that was not to say "you're not doing your school work", the idea was more "take back the energy you're wasting on this, and put it into something more constructive".

Also @ZF: bugger off. You can make the mature assumption of me saying "girls, she, her" as "boys, he, his". Do you honestly think I care what anyone's sexual preference is? I say "girls, she, her" because that's what Cacturn is talking about.


oops ninja'd...really long ago

I tend to enjoy Valentine's day by picking up little gifts for my friends. You don't really have to be lovers to participate.

Of course, saying that only confirms my own participation in the whole "marketed holiday" issue. Quite frankly, I really don't care about that anymore... it just seems much nicer to make someone feel a little more special.
