Summertime is a temp. issue.

Nope.

Hmm...for sure not the one in goggles with his hands on the other guy's shoulders..
Feeling isolated, and alone.
Carin comments on Jul 23, 2018:
I noticed a really funny coincidence--I just got off the phone with one of those survey takers. He thanked me for being nice to him & then we had a great little conversation about tobacco politics. I really enjoyed his call! He was smart & insightful & I think fairly new to the job. A reminder to look at many kinds situations as an opportunity for a little social time.
Feeling isolated, and alone.
Carin comments on Jul 23, 2018:
I'm so sorry. I feel that way sometimes too. For me talking to folks here & on Facebook helps a lot, but other people need personal interaction. Do you want to talk about your situation in more detail? Almost everyone here is super nice & won't be mean to you. I hope you can solve this problem soon as it's very painful.
Papa ooh mau mau Mamoa!!!
Carin comments on Jul 23, 2018:

I never get bored & I love being comfortable!
Some say Trump is a puppet. If so, who's pulling the strings?

What are your views on abortion??
Carin comments on Jul 23, 2018:
A related question--if a mom can't get prenatal care because the conservatives cut all the programs, & the fetus dies, would they even feel bad? I don't think they would care.
This is one of those impossible questions. Sitting on the exam table at the doctor's office you are ...

Have you ever been stabbed?
Carin comments on Jul 23, 2018:
An older boy used to threaten me with a knife on the way home from kindergarten. He would tell me not to move & then go away. I stood there, frozen & crying, as all the other kids walked by & went home. When the sidewalk became empty I was even more terrified that he would come back & kill me. Eventually the same older girl would come by & walk me home. A few months ago one of my goats stuck his horn in me & pinned me to the fence. That was also terrifying but much quicker. My ex-to-be came & beat him with a shovel, which he didn't seem to notice at all. I screamed for him to put water on the goat, & he instantly fled. Water is goat napalm. I put him up for sale that day figuring he would be Mexican barbecue, but this particular goat was actually a little famous. Someone on the other coast bought him. He almost made it there, but hung himself in a tree a couple hundred miles away. Karma? RIP Sam.

Carin comments on Jul 17, 2018:
No problem with weddings & funerals, as you're there mainly because you care about the people involved. I don't see it as an endorsement of their religion, really. I would think most Jewish people would attend a friend's christian church wedding, & visa-versa. My husband begged me to go to his parents' very conservative church for Xmas & I was pretty uncomfortable about that. His dad was also singing in the choir & I didn't want to hurt that sweet old guy's feelings. There were no negative repercussions that I'm aware of. I won't go to regular Sunday worship though, or the Wednesday one either. Sometimes I feel that people's feelings are more important than my beliefs--What do you guys think?
There is no agnostic vs. atheist! The peeve I have...

What are the best arguments you have in favor of marriage?
Carin comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I suspect that most marriages last longer than live together arrangements, but I have nothing to back that up. For myself, I am done with marriage.
What are the best arguments you have in favor of marriage?
Carin comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I used to think it indicated a stronger sense of commitment to each other. Living together you can choose whether to work hard at resolving problems, otherwise it's a lot easier to leave than a marriage is. Now I'm not so sure. Being old fashioned though, I do think it's better if you have kids.

Carin comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I've always hated this thing--anyone else notice how the man is standing squarely & looking directly at the viewer? Meanwhile they have the woman standing off balance, shoulders slumped, slightly turned away from the viewer & staring mindlessly at nothing with lowered eyes. They also left out her labia. It seems very intentionally sexist.
There's an App for that!

Have You Saved Someone's Life?
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I yelled to my husband before he stepped on a groggy rattlesnake trying to warm itself in the middle of a trail one chilly morning. He had long legs & always left me behind even though I hated it. Being the A-hole that he is, he ignored me at first when I just yelled his name--I was so panicked I couldn't come up with the word "snake" even. Finally I got him to at least turn around & see what I was hollering about. He was probably 3 feet from the snake by then. That pause gave the snake enough time to rouse itself & crawl away, finally rattling. He was lucky we had just started the hike & he hadn't left me far enough behind that I wouldn't have seen that snake lying there looking like a stick. If I knew then what I know now, I would have kept my mouth shut anyway.

Hugging matters ?
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I love hugs from people I know but feel very uncomfortable when strangers want a hug right away. For you young folks, greeting people with hugs when you're strangers or acquaintances is a relatively new thing. Even friends did not hug each other the way they do now. Hugging was for family (including extended family) & romantic partners. At least where I cam from anyway. I'm slowly adjusting though....
A Man's Sense of Humor
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
Sense of humor is so important to people who have a sense of humor too. I also think there are different kinds of sense of humor & not all are compatible. Just from what I read here, women do seem less concerned with looks--have you noticed how few of us even mention looks when they comment on posts regarding compatibility & partners?
Healing: What has helped you heal from an abusive relationship? For me, it was therapy and ...
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
Geographical distance helps me with that, but therapy helps to validate my experiences, as you said, & it also helps to have a normal person say "No, that is not normal behavior for a parent (or partner) & it's abuse." Because if that's all you ever knew, you have nothing to compare to & abuse seems normal.

Overweight shows weakness?
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
As long as the person saying those unkind things doesn't smoke, exercises daily, & has no bad habits....sure. But mainly it bothers me when people consider things like weight gain an indicator of poor character, & that they obviously consider themselves superior to anyone who is overweight. The person's remark was not only pointless & stupid, it was very unkind & to me that's worse.
The struggle is real...
Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
If you wear an odd size it's even worse. I can't get a 34DDD for under $65--sixty five dollars for ONE bra! That's if the store even carries that size. Many don't. But if you look at them, they are pretty complicated garments that would be hard to sew. It would take more time to make one than it would a pair of jeans I bet.

Carin comments on Jul 13, 2018:
The ad also points out several times that you still need to use a condom, & get an HIV test before you start the drug & every 3 months thereafter. I don't know if HIV is on the rise again in general, but I believe there are some segments of society where it is. But the main thing is, it isn't gone & we need to prevent as many people from getting it as we can.

Carin comments on Jul 12, 2018:
If you're unsure, you could just reply to one or 2 of their posts with a sort of open ended question. As far as your suggested categories, if they did that they should have a 3rd one along the lines of "no preference" but not so disinterested sounding. Some people appear more approachable here than others do. You might find it easier to make the first move with some people more than others & not want to be categorized.

What's your lowest compatibility percentage? 100% seems not uncommon, so I looked for my least ...
Carin comments on Jul 11, 2018:
My lowest is 15% & the highest is 88%. But I have some really enjoyable conversations with guys who are supposedly less that 20% compatible & we find tons of stuff to talk about. The guy I've chosen to date is not among the 80%ers either, so I don't know how much stock to put in those numbers. You really need to talk--just like meeting someone in real life, like we used to do in the old days. & like grandpa said, don't judge a book by its cover.
In pursuit of healthy aging
Carin comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Vegetarianism & avoiding the sun is serving me pretty well. Don't drink or smoke either. Normal cholesterol levels & below normal BP well past the age when other family members were taking pills for it. Avoiding the sun prevents wrinkles & spots as well as skin cancer.
Empathy and the Appeal of Right-Wing Politics
Carin comments on Jul 11, 2018:
"Empathy" in the same sentence as "Right Wing Politics"...how could I NOT click on that??? Pretty good article, though leaving women & the poor out of the different groups discussed is puzzling. I wish the article had suggested what could be done about the problem, but at least it gets us thinking about the appeal of right wing politics in a little different light.
Who's not watching the football tonight?

Opposition to Breast-Feeding Resolution by U.S. Stuns World Health Officials
Carin comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Thank goodness Russia had the guts to stand up to the blatant US bully tactics. Shame shame shame on the US for bullying the very countries where the breast milk vs. formula question can be truly life or death. This isn't just about money & politics. Any policy that does not encourage women to feed their babies their own milk is going to result in babies dying. Of course the orange buffoon only cares about "babies" until they are born. While the death rate for artificially fed infants is well known to be much higher in developing nations, even here in the US breastfed babies have a slightly higher survival rate. Even a percent or 2 matters if it's your baby. I've worked with nursing moms & babies for 15 years & I am beyond disgusted by what our country has become.
