    Just need to vent some frustration, but today marks three weeks since a girl I'd been chatting up regularly online since December has last messaged me and the PM status of my last message to her still says unread. Thought we might have had something and she seemed open to meeting last March until everything got locked down, to which we agreed to discuss meeting up once the pandemic lifts, but she's the only girl on that site I found any kind of chemistry with and if I don't hear back from her soon, I'm probably just going to let the subscription expire and wait until the pandemic lifts before I look for love again.

    I just saw the aftermath of a figure swap as I was clocking out..... Some asswipe bought a Netflix Megatron and swapped lionizer ( and i think megs, was too occupied with the BMs) with their retail versions and pinpointer with firedrive. If you did this at the Fishkill Wal-Mart at around 4:30 today yous a bitch.... Ugh! I wish i was a few minutes sooner to catch your lying ass!!!

    That truly sucks. That and people not really sure of what they really wanted (and getting strung along until they realized it and said they were bouncing) were the hardest parts of online dating. A lot of people signed up for free weekends, but then didn't want to pay later. I am sorry you are having that experience.

    Enh, it wasn't unexpected, truth be told - admittedly she took like a week to get back to me between messages - but like I said, it seemed like we might have had something. Like a moron I didn't realize my subscription renewed before the expiry, so now I have an extra month. If she reaches me in that time, great, if not...well, stick the plan I already outlined.

    Gay man here.
    The whole "all good men are gay" thing is a myth. In my experience all the good guys are straight (don't let that get to your heads though lol). Most guys in the gay community just wanna f*ck and move on to the next person. Its hard to find someone who wants something genuine.
    As much as I want a relationship, I'm not wasting my time if that's what I gotta go through.

    Until I come across the right guy I'll just keep focusing on myself while low-key being like this in the corner:

    I went to the eye doctor today to get checked up, thought i was going to have a good time and finally get better glasses than the ones ive been having for years but no. The doctor was impatient as hell whenever she switched lenses and she immediately would ask are they good or no with attitude i didnt have time to think because she would get mad start sighing and saying shit under her breath she also forgot to clean the equipment after having it for a few minutes, i wanted to walk out of that appointment so bad the glasses better fucking work im not going to that shitty place again, shes old if shes fucking miserable at that place then retire no one is forcing you to still work

    Maybe she had family problems but things like that should be left out of the workplace.

    Hows that my fault? Why does she got to let her anger and frustration on me and probably other patients? She honestly ruined my whole day because i dont even know if the glasses will even work its giving me major anxiety

    Let's try this again since the feeling is still eating away at me...

    I'm tired of the uncertainty of whether or not I will be able to see my other half sooner rather than later. Everyday and often by the hour, I'm checking on flights and what regs our countries have in place for travelers. The separation is difficult enough, but having a continuously fluctuating plan, i.e. NOT really knowing for sure when we will see each other is the damn killer.

    She sent me another video today. It's a strange feeling to be happy beyond words, and also want to punch a hole in the wall out of frustration and anger about not being able to go to her.

    :(

    Next time try saying 'You sound like you need a break,' or 'sounds like you're having a tough day' in a mild conversational tone, regardless of how you yourself feel. I find it tends to make people rethink how they're acting and calm down, because someone (you) have acknowledged their feelings. People often need that simple kindness, especially nowadays, and in turn they're usually kinder, and giving someone else that consideration will usually help YOU not be as frustrated as well.

    Multiple rants incoming:

    I’m dead tired. I can doze off while reading at night but when I actually get up and turn off the light to actually sleep, I’m awake for hours. I’ve gotten very little sleep the last 2 nights.

    Which bring me to noisy neighbors again. For the last month one neighbor has been doing concrete and renovation work in their backyard. I’ve endured weekends of jackhammering at 8am (I’m up well before that but it goes on for hours), sledgehammering, nail hammering, drilling – you name it it’s happened. They’re nice people and I like them, but it’s getting old.

    The other neighbor, the one who I’ve complained about before with the music, sits out in their backyard for 7 to 8 hours – you guessed it- playing loud music. They’re also on conference/video calls for work outside on speakerphone. All their personal phone conversations take place in their yard as well – yesterday afternoon I was treated to a “top of the lungs”, screaming, ranting, argumentative phone call this person was having with a family member or friend. It was pretty bad. You could hear them down the block. I don’t really want or need to hear someone’s business. And their kids? They’re screaming/shrieking, at 11, 12, 1am because they’re playing videogames with their window wide open. I really don’t know what’s wrong with people today – oh wait- I DO know. Lack of consideration for other people, self absorption and a general “I can do whatever the f*ck I want because I bought the house and live here” attitude.

    It’s getting hot. I hate summer. When will winter get here?

    I think you can talk with local law enforcement and file noise violation complaints.

    There's a situation that I've been keeping an eye on for a while now and I am so dissapointed at how both people are fucking up so badly. Even the person who is more on the right side of things is fucking up and ruining it for himself at how uncoordinated and mindlessly he is approaching the whole situation.

    I really need to remember to check on eBay prices for things I see here on the boards without prices so I don't embarrass myself again.... Last thing I want to do is upset anyone from my dumb ass not keeping up with the times....

    Code enforcement here is useless (I've been down this road before). All they can do is make a note and send them a warning letter and later on a ticket if it keeps up (which never happens)- they aren't allowed to talk or approach the party involved. And cops generally have better things to do, and here point you to your village code enforcement. The only times cops get involved if it's a large party at night that goes on for hours, etc.

    Yeah autumn is my favorite season, but we seem to go from summer to winter at some point; it's like we don't even get autumn anymore
