    Give it time, I suspect that you and MH14 will date at some point, in fact I'd be willing to put significant money on it with an independent 3rd party (i.e. a casino).

    Okay, maybe you're right. I am still friends with him. :P

    And the only reason you suggest me & Mavsy is because we're the only posters under 20 :P

    I haven't witnessed any right-wing girls who weren't psycho... though there's always a time for firsts

    edit: actually, I immediately realized that isn't true... certainly a character but not a psycho... so, there's one out there.

    While not a right-wing nutjob, but rather conservative, I almost married a not a hippie but very liberal woman. It's called maturity and respect for others' opinions.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Brenthoven again."

    Though, if the opinions are just too different, it's better to cut your losses and walk away with a lesson learned.

    As for dating posters, I'd say it's no different than in any other "social" group. Sometimes, people meet here and it works. Sometimes, it doesn't. It doesn't stop my family from referring to USCHO as "a dating site for hockey freaks", though.

    I agree with you.

    I was making a sweeping generalization and acknowledge that. My point was that people who have something that they are very passonate about that strongly influences their general worldview are often best off withsome who shares that worldview. Otherwise you are just setting yourself up for some significant conflict over major topics as a result of differences in your philosophies, regardless if you respect the other persons opinion or not.

    And, yes, I'm aware of cases where those differences were not a problem, but those are an exception to this generalization.

    Re: Singles Part 14: Come Get Some!

    There will always be differences in opinion amongst couples, and having somewhat of an open mind is required of both parties. A case study would be my last relationship where I viewed the world ‘realistically’ and my gf ‘optimistically’. Sometimes I was too pessimistic, and her sometimes too overoptimistic. The issue is that no one is ever spot on 100% of the time, and it’s easy to eviscerate someone’s worldview when their ideals aren’t met.

    Don’t get me started on hippies. I utterly abhor most of them. They sit there and preech change, but do nothing. No ideas, no action…just distrust for “the man” who is keeping them down. News flash, you are keeping yourselves down. Its an utter defeatist mindset bend on deferring responsibility, and the inability to shoulder blame for their own life situation. Hard work is scorned since it buys into the system, but they secretly hate hard work because it cuts into their precious 4/20.

    It’s a tall task to find a girl who is different enough to be fun, but not different enough to be lame. Somewhat congruent goals and ideals are probably where to look. In my case, someone who likes to exercise, isn’t terribly religious, and is fairly smart is probably what I’ll end up with.

    Interesting dialogue between me and a girl I was hooking up with a few months ago:

    “ I feel sorry for you not believing in god or heaven”
    ‘ I don’t. I didn’t feel sorry for myself before I was born, I doubt I will afterwards”
    "Look to the end, no matter what it is you are considering. Often enough, God gives man a glimpse of happiness, and then utterly ruins him"

    Re: Singles Part 14: Come Get Some!

    I rarely post serious stuff in here...but I might have a situation on my hands.

    Long story short: met a girl Saturday night at a bar, she's a friend of a friend, we got along great, had too much to drink, and we ended up with our own room at the hotel separate from the rest of the group, etc. etc. Sunday, she had to drive back home to Duluth, but she was hungover and felt ****ty, so I told her that she could nap on my couch for a couple hours to try to feel better. She woke up, and we ended up chatting, watching some playoff hockey and ordering pizza. Had a great time. Before too long it ends up being late, and she doesn't want to drive the 2 hours to Duluth, so she stayed over and drove home(to work actually) yesterday morning. We have been texting back and forth ever since and it seems like it is going well. Now she is planning on staying at my place in a couple weeks when she comes down for a charity benefit for a friend.

    This could still go many different directions, obviously, but it is looking like there might be something there, and I'm not sure how I feel about it...I have had a lot of fun hanging out with her, and she has an odd sense of humor that I really like, but really, still too early to tell since I just met her 4 days ago. Right now I just need to figure out if I want to be in a relationship, since I'm enjoying my single life, so I don't lead this girl on.

    To make it more complicated, before this girl came along, I was talking with another girl I met, that several around here know (waitress from final five), and so far that has been going great, and I think we are going to go out sometime next week (planned before I met the other girl). Decisions, decisions...

    There is no decision. You date and **** the waitress during the week, and you date and **** the Duluth girl on weekends. Somewhere down the line, you have a threeway with them. Or you keep the two separate. It's up to you.

    If I've learned anything from TV and movies, it is that this doesn't work.

    Yes, but if you've learned anything ELSE from TV and movies, it's that you have an awesome time doing it until you realize it doesn't work.

    I suppose the other option is to pick the one you like least, get her really drunk, and then have MNS pinch hit for you.

    I would guess that you two get along significantly better when you're not dating.

    And that's what I tried. Obviously it wasn't good enough. Of course, I'm not sure if it helped that there were similar personalities (both very opinionated and stubborn), but not really any common interests. If women only care about common interests, then I'm screwed, because they stretch in some of the weirdest directions that you wouldn't even expect it in some cases, and any interests you would think of as complementary don't exist with me.

    And to answer your question, Patman, I thought she was, but I'm not really a good judge of looks.
