Alas, it quickly devolved into a violent gungasm and I have no idea who won because at that point, I no longer cared, just rewound the tape and returned it by its due date. Le sigh, le heavy sigh.

started in 15 when the whole idea of that sick fuck in our house was a joke.
broke up for a yr in the middle of that, cuz i fell in love w a wonderful man. but he got dx’d w als and wouldnt let me bring him home to chgo w me.
honestly, unlike most of them he rly is a good man. he collects coats, makes care packages, and when it gets below zero, he goes out after midnight looking for homeless to help.
he’s a burner and always volunteered at burns. swears he never got laid at a burn. 🙄. tho he was there for the drugs.
also a die hard catholic, tho he was a sinner from every angle.

and frankly, we didnt talk much, if u get my drift. and oddly when we did talk about politics, we agree on most things. he’s a disillusioned old hippie.

we loved each other very much. in fact we got back together for a minute last yr. even tho the breakup was brutal. it’s wasnt his politics that made me dump him, it was the part where he’s a coward. i’d sooner abide a liar than a coward. not that i’ve ever found 1 that wasnt both.
and trust me, magats r the biggest cowards out there.

good luck doing better.
and dont feel too bad. i just got catfished by a scammer i found on xitter. shoulda googled the phone # the minute he gave it to me. but when u want to believe…

I'd never been to one, and the concept sounded...interesting, in a scary way. So we go to the party at her grandmother's house, and meet the tribe.

Her grandmother had rather bad arthritis, and was sitting in one of those lift (?)chairs that still look like a recliner. Had pockets on the sides. I noticed them after one of my friend's cousins brought in her new beau, and he started praising reagan the traitor. Grans asked one time if he was saying what she thought he was. He smirked and said, 'yes, ma'am, he's the greatest president ever.'

Granny might have had arthritis, but she reached down to the side of her lift chair and pulled out a sawed off shotgun faster than the Waco Kid.

'I don't tolerate stupid or trash in my house, and you're both. Get out. And, you, Missy, are welcome to the same if you follow that cad.'

He ran. The idiot cousin cried a bit, but stayed. She didn't get any sympathy for bringing a 'G-D republican' into her grandmother's house, when everyone knew that the woman had been a die-hard liberal Democrat since at least FDR.

Some men are pretty skillful at not revealing much about themselves at first. A couple guys acted friendly and nice, asked me about my work, education, hobbies, etc. but never volunteered any details about themselves. I'm pretty sure it was because they were right wingers. Now there are things I used to do that I avoid. I used to do some trap shooting but there are too many men who think I'm a gun humper just because I shoot at clay targets. Our society in general seems more heavily populated by people, particularly men, who have extreme beliefs and opinions. And I seem to attract them like flies to shit, and I don't know why. I am not great looking and I don't wear spandex. It's just the zeitgeist I suppose.

I met my wife, a politically like-minded northern European, fifty years ago at the tender age of 22.

My first and future reaction was W. O. W.! I was quite convinced I'd never find another one like her, and didn't feel like trying. Deal breakers for us were always right-wingers, religious extremists and people who drove as fast as they possibly could (and here in Germany, that's legal out on many parts of the Autobahn network). If you drive fast enough to endanger yourself, that means you're driving fast enough to endanger others, and that crossed her social worker's line.

If I ever lost her, first of all, I'd be like a rainbow trout stuck in the middle of the Gobi Desert. Besides, no woman that I was attracted to ever gave me a second look, anyway. My wife was the big exception because she was nearsighted, and we met in a dark place

this sub is full of stories of people who found out too late that they'd fallen for a person who is Qanon. Not to mention the families being destroyed and long time marriages falling apart. right wing propaganda is killing our country.

Religion and politics head the list. Keeping my illusions intact is a lot better than knowing the awful truth.

That probably wouldn't apply were I still auditioning people for intimate partners. I'd kinda want to know then, as pie eyed belief in any sort of cult, personality and/or religious, would make it hard for such a person to deal with my deep cynicism.

OK, so he no longer "likes" Trump. What about Trump's values. I know a lot of people who didn't like Trump (2016+), but they liked his policies.

I say, move on.

56. Would I be evil if I used them for meaningless sex?

Not that I'm in a position to do this, or have a body to be able to attract someone for this, but just supposing, if a magat woman were interested in me for sex, based on hormones, or mental immaturity, or just abject poor judgement, would I be wrong to use her knowing she was an ignorant, stupid, mind slut?

I mean really, all I would be doing was getting sexual and maybe a sick mind satisfaction on a lesser species for a short time. Of course, it would be a consensual relationship. A stupid one, but no force, intimidation, or drug influence involved.

Never going to happen because I'm not a sick twisted fuck who would take advantage of someone, just asking a hypothetical.

And then would hypothetically jumping off a building be bad?

She would lose all her friends at the club, or the bowling alley, depending on the income level. Women don't like losing friends, even for money, and certainly not for love.

They will try to find a way to play it both ways. But if forced to choose, they will take the money in the short term and run back to their friends at the first chance (never having really left them). Sound old fashioned? Not really. Just what I've seen.

In any case, it wouldn't lead to sex. Which is the only thing I would see in one unless there was really a chance to swing them to liberal thinking.

Shallow? Me? Yeah. I admit it. I found love once. I have a loving family. It's sex I'm missing. ;0

Luckily, there are probably a lot of liberal ladies I can talk to when and if I'm ready. I don't need magat trash. It was just a hypothetical.

...Right? I mean, if you did, that'd be ok, of course. I'm all in favor of premarital whoopee, but best to find out before, as you say, you get involved....and knowing nothing more than what you'd said, I'd say you did the right thing.

It's disappointing when an otherwise pleasant-looking person who is easy to talk to turns out to be one of them.

66. I recently "dumped" my oldest friend
Thu May 23, 2024, 12:13 AM
May 23

We were friends for 32 years. I knew he had turned MAGA in 2016 but I thought he was smart enough to eventually acknowledge reality

Instead he got worse, and when I'd finally had enough it was because he was alternating between trolling me with bullshit, and turning into a whiny snowflake when I called him on his bullshit

My only regret is that I didn't do it years ago. Good riddance to that clown

73. In 2016, one of my few cousins, and my only male cousin said he was ashamed of me
Thu May 23, 2024, 12:44 AM

for not "voting conservative". He was pretty sure his sons and their spouses were all going to be Trump voters. He was quite proud of that. I assured him Trump was a con man, and we have never spoken since. I wish I had asked him what the hell made him think he had any right to be ashamed of me. But he is religious, so... you know. Trump (and religion in my cousin's case) are such a cancer in our society. Most of my relatives are right wing religious creatures.

I am SO grateful for my wife. We have grown side-by-side from being one of them about 50 years ago to the kind of people most Democrats are. And we shed religion many years ago.

As a bonus, my wife of 56 years (this month) is a pancreatic cancer (stage II) survivor.

Her roommate is dating this “perfect” guy: handsome, rich, loving, kind, and one day she comes home and the friend says that she dumped the guy.

Why, Sheila asks.

Because he voted for NIXON.

85. Good for you. Liking TSF is just a symptom of other things that are wrong about a person. Generally.
Thu May 23, 2024, 12:22 PM

Don't know your guy, but what was the reason he gave for supporting TSF?

That's been one of the shocks of the last 7 years, is that seemingly normal people -- even friendly or nice people we've known for a while -- have some hidden reason for adulating a small, limited, sociopathic, selfish toddler as leader of the free world. it is a litmus test of some sort.

Dog love is unconditional.
Even for smelly lumpy thinking-is-hard sitting-on-a-just laid-flattened-butt-nugget tRumpers.
Doesn't mean the dog's happy.
Dogs are easier to trap.

Cats truly don't need us But hang out 'cuz they like us all while pretending not to.
Cats supplement their diet hunting at night.
Cats can kill you in your sleep.
Maybe.
Our house is ruled jointly by a Pug and a large mostly-outdoor possibly insane Cat.
They rough-house everyday as a show of force.
