‘Open to meeting women’ means:

  1. For sharing ideas, conversation and comparing perspectives.

  2. Personally meeting some showing mutual interest in cultivating friendship and social activities. Arresting or discontinuing at this level is just ‘dandy’.

  3. Only a possibility of exclusive intimacy eventuating, should one in particular become special.

So, for women within my age range still seeking ‘that one’ as sole motivation for screening, it is vital to point out that I’m not him.

Though possessing ‘that one’ character traits, at this phase of life I’m leaving the ‘off feet sweeping’ and hip attachment to other generations.

They can't stand it Terry! He wins at everything he does and they are growling and chewing the draperies and carpets with foam billowing from their mouths. No matter what he does or how he WINS!, they are going to whine and piss and moan. He plays them like an organ grinder allowing them to make monkeys out of themselves. I just hope he has plenty of his own security people working with Secret Service because he is dramatically diminishing their options and they are DESPERATE! I'm neither Repub nor Demo, but am seriously enjoying the way he's turning them into a huge, hilarious animal act. It isn't lost on the general public and the booming economy should result in a bloodbath in November. There will be a 'blue trickle'...

We chose him as president. Not Republicans and certainly not Democrats. The electorate of our Republic chose him and our leaders are ALWAYS determined not by partisans comprising about 85% of the electorate, but folks in the non-partisan mainstream. Thanks for the arse view. The USA has been 'bent over' on trade for decades. Now it is the turn of others. If you want our markets the price just went up to parity; as in fair trade. Don't like it?

Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
Jealousy is very destructive to loving, trusting bonds. It is symptomatic of distrust and lack of thorough understanding of another person primarily. Secondarily, it is proprietory; disclosing a sense of 'ownership' of another person and requirement that the other person's joy in the living of life isn't acceptable unless it comes from the title holder. I'm not talking about sexual or other kinds of infidelity as defined between people, even though that might cause deep disappointment and painful regrets. Disappointment can be equally painful upon discovery that one you trust implicitly in all sitiations doesn't have reciprocal trust in you or doesn't feel joy at your happiness unless it comes only from them.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
I wouldn't find it to be awkward at all. Good people can be in the status popularly labeled 'ex' as it relates to a sexual basis. With maturity and growth of respect and appreciation for all of life; especially good people, I've learned that relationships can morph. Our relationships with friends and family do it all the time. There, to me, is no sound reason that loving bonds with others shouldn't be subject to the same changes when and if changes occur externally or intimately that call for said morphing. For examples: We dearly love and are bonded with our children and siblings and parents. Over time, life's seasons gradually change the natures of those loving relationships in many ways; almost all of which don't call for rejecting those loved ones entirely or permanently; even if we disagree with some of their choices. The dearest woman in this world to me is now in a very enriching and better intimate one with another man who is also a wonderful person. Our relationship morphed over a period of about 13 years into one that remains close; not unlike those of life-long friends, close siblings, close cousins etc. The whole 'ex' principle is something imposed on us before we even have a chance to evaluate it in natural or more objective ways. Why? Because it is yet another cruel, wasteful, vindictive and pathogenic aspect of our male dominated, double-standard, business deal society. It is the principle of 'throwing our the baby with the bathwater' founded solely on pride and perceived 'standing' in the views of others.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
What is common knowledge to most Israelis, we are oblivious to. That is 'Greater Israel'. Political Zionist fanatics (those now in full control the government) aren't going to be satisfied with taking all of Palestine. They already occupy parts of Lebanon and Syria and are in possession of virtually all of Palestine in one way or another; such as blockade... Greater Israel includes large portions of Syria, Iraq, all of Jordan and Sinai all the way to Egypt. Making Assad look like a mass murdering tyrant in the Western press is vital as a pretext for attacking Syria and creating yet another 'power vacuum' in the region; giving an excuse for Israel, with support vassal states (the FUKUS triumverate of France, UK and US) to fill-in the vacuum... Jordan has been 'riding the tiger' for decades and will probably be the last portion to be absorbed. Not sure whether it will play-out in this way, but it has been moving in that direction for almost 18 years. Vassal states, one might ask? After all, 'tiny' Israel is hardly as powerful as a feudal lord. I answer, that it depends on what KIND of power is wielded. Governments dependent upon an electorate ( a real one, not a counterfeit one as in Israel ) are also dependent upon what the population thinks of them to get elected. And, I'd add, raising enough money to get elected. What the populations 'think' is mostly, that margin being all it takes to get elected, a matter of what appears in press and popular entertainment media. Anyone want to consider a scenario in which a person in our country would be elected to ANY office if they were publicly critical of the behavior of the state of Israel?

Oh, your question reminded me of a fling I had many years ago with an older woman of 33. She lamented some men who were on the obnoxious side that she wasn't really interested in but who 'hounded' and wouldn't go home or go away at the end of an 'evening'. She told me that she just let them 'have their way' to get rid of them. This going to church to suit others bears some interesting similarity. Keep the peace. Monday is only tomorrow. Or: "Close your eyes and think of England?"

Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
The 'label' for you is the same as the one for everyone else. "YOU" it is distinctive and beautiful and all YOU need. Leave labeling to others. Any time you take a position on ANY issue, they will label you in a 'New York Minute'! I feel your pain as an individual but also am aware of the prevalent notion that we must label ourselves in order to let others know where we fit in the constellation of 'isms' and herds swirling about us. Don't bother. The cattle will ignore you anyway and label you based on whether you seem at the moment to be friend or foe. Agnostics and atheists share skepticism. The rest is window dressing. Or, if there are really gods, 'adjusting deck chairs'. :)

What's the worst epidemic of our time?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 11, 2018:
Addiction is the most widespread disease. Most will read that statement and understand it in narrow, mechanistic frames of reference. Addiction defined functionally is an acquired dependence on artifice; on substitutes feeding secondary drives that exist because satisfying primary drives is, for any of many reasons, not an option. We abuse ourselves and our natures routinely and with the ready assistance of others who are 'pushers' of substitutes. Addictions are far from limited to things like brain altering substances, compulsive activities like consuming pornography, sex addictions, 'adrenalin' addictions and gambling. Our brains are much more broadly abused by acceptance of 'isms' contrived by others that substitute for, or allow us to abdicate, our natural incumbency as thinkers and reasoners on individual level. People also get 'hooked' on endorphin stimulating religious rituals and mass political ideologies and movements. Artifice has literally taken over what used to be human artistic expression and performing. It has happened to music and graphic arts. Computers produce in water torture perfection sounds and graphic images that once came exclusively from people. Generated voices run by machines express words of regret and apologize to us as thought they possessed real emotions. The effects of this disease are seen in withdrawal and dissociation from what is real to the point where people, particularly the young, actually have difficulty with 'connecting with others' and discerning differences between real and artificial, functionally. We are all dependent of technology and the easy short-cut artifice it delivers. Has anyone gotten on the freeway lately and discovered they've left their phone at home?

Silver1wun comments on Jun 10, 2018:
We are saturated with malignant integration that has strangled and nearly asphyxiated individual thought and reasoning. The danger comes from both Left and Right. If one considers the ways in which "public education" has morphed into regimented indoctrination it is a huge clue to at least one of the causes. Younger people don't possess the perspective of those of us who developed relatively free of such captivity. Society has always afflicted the young with mores, most of religious origin, withing which we could navigate as individuals. Today? There is no tolerance on the fringes of the Left or Right for differences or criticism. Another thing that both kinds of fanaticism demonstrate that is most threatening to personal liberty is willingness to violate Constitutional principles and protections in any ways necessary to advance their respective ideologies. At least the Left is more honest about it; stating their contempt for the document and the philosophy upon which it rests. The theological fanatics on the Right swear they cherish the Constitution until it gets in the way of theocratic nonsense they wish to make into public laws punishing and limiting the liberty of others. Nowhere is it required for people to 'belong' to ANY political party or to be exclusive wards of this or that ideology as a requirement for validity of personal ideas and reasoning. One can agree with one herd on one issue and with the other on a different issue and be equally hated and indicted as a dupe or loved as a sage. It's disgusting. Fortunately, NEITHER PARTY OR FRINGE ever elects our chief executive. They only comprise about 40 + or - % respectively of the electorate anyway. The only control they have is over who gets nominated while we in the middle determine which of their choices stinks less than the other. Last election, the process escaped them a bit and even though the winner is about as corrupt and opportunistic as any compromised, pedigreed politician, they are in full panic because they can't get a handle on him. Very entertaining to watch. The national hiring process of choosing a leader has degraded to hero worship or hatred akin to the archaic 'Punch and Judy' puppet shows.
In the early stages of going out with someone, how much do you notice what clothes they're wearing?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 10, 2018:
This goes directly to the old adage about 'putting your best foot forward'. If a person leads with that best foot 24/7/365, the advice is unnecessary. And, if not, it is mildly to severely disingenuous. When the impression we make is superior to what one is likely to see on or in us on a regular basis, the only direction left is down, as in downhill. I try to be every-day appropriate for the occasion and activity. Too much dressiness or grooming can be a distraction early-on, from focus on what the person is about. Obviously if there is a mutuality of interest and an activity is chosen to share that calls for dressing up, one does the 'best foot' thing. In our society, this is yet another maxim that doesn't stand the of reason. It isn't that beyond cleanliness and good grooming, attire doesn't matter. Too much too soon is like another old adage about 'crossing bridges before getting to them'.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 10, 2018:
Species benefit is realized as the natural outcome of individual benefit. Every idea, invention, innovation, ennobling work of art and philosophy originated with some individual somewhere. Every thwarting of or destruction of these products and often individuals themselves originates with group or group leadership interests. Each person is an element in the compounds/molecules called societies. Thinking and reasoning faculties are the most significant attributes our kind exhibits. Collaboration in advancement of anything of value cannot happen without individual contributors. Individuals, however, can advance new and valuable ideas without collaboration. It is said that 'the whole is always greater than the sum of it's parts'. Without the parts upon which the whole depends for existence, it is nothing.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 10, 2018:
Not the way I'd put it, but the priority is shared. Without first getting to know and become fascinated with another person's mind, from where is the deep attraction to come? My view of 'making love' is that it isn't a process of giving or taking, but one of sharing. In the same way, sharing of minds that leads to mutual pleasure, excitement and anticipation of 'what's next' is the ONLY way to achieve emotional attraction to go with whatever might be physical. Without admiration, respect and affection developing as people become closer, knowing another person and trusting are impossible. We are thinking and reasoning creatures; defined by it more than any other attribute. Of course the road to real intimacy must be navigated by sharing of minds. The brain isn't a toy. I'm reminded of an old margarine commercial (knew the lady) that ended with "It's not NICE to fool Mother Nature!" For me it has to be two-way, all of the way. Without the feeling of sharing being* wanted*, authentic intimacy is personally impossible. I don't care how she looks or how 'willing' she is. It takes more or it's a waste of time and energy. Being close social acquaintances enjoying interests and activities together with many women and them with many men is where it will arrest. Trust (my definition) is shared in all ways. That is, no single party can be 100% responsible for a perceived breach. Half of trust is self-trust; as in confidence in one's own assessment of the other's character and parameters of conduct. Deception cuts both ways in almost all cases. It is vital to really* see who the other person is* without conjuring of fantasies or ignoring of telltale discrepancies; to trust mutual honesty in being emotionally and mentally naked with one another without reservations before the first garment goes off. (well, maybe an exception for shoes) Can people enjoy sexual intimacy with less? They do all the time. Who hasn't? We live in a world of more sophisticated artifice than was even imaginable a generation ago. Short-cuts and instant 'gratifications' and their pitfalls are everywhere. Speaking of pits, so are sensations of emptiness in the pit of one's stomach in place of fulfillment; of almost immediately seeking more because there can never be enough of substitutes. Intimacy without mental and emotional elements allowing complete surrender eases pressure but offers no repose.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 9, 2018:
Though voting support for the second statement, I strongly disagree with the notion that a 'movement' is either desirable or necessary as the means of thwarting theological fanaticism. Theologies are themselves movements within which people are organized by self-appointed, self-aggrandizing males issuing theologically based 'marching orders'. Rejection of gods and presumptuous men claiming to represent them is an individual choice. What theological and political manipulators (in the forms of movements) fear most isn't as much rejection as the assertion of individuality at it's root. They are in fact rather comfortable with sheep rejecting one herd and choosing another as a given; as a matter of competition that in no way jeopardizes the herd system. Among atheists, since it is merely rejection of gods, many different reason based notions about our reality can thrive and find common agreements among others with no necessity whatsoever of becoming movements. Some of us might sense or reason as individuals a life energy or even intentionality beyond our grasp. Others might reject those notions. Some fellow atheists also consider ghosts and planetary influences to be possible. Many other ideas abound within the category of those who share only personal rejection of gods. Movement phenomena, if you reflect on them, always have one or more promoters; usually claiming some form of superior knowledge or sagacity with which they deign to license themselves as your 'betters'. It is seduction with sweet sounding ideas around which to rally into a movement that always empowers leaderships and almost always enriches them. The first order of business in any movement is establishing doctrinal (substitute ideological if you will) boundaries within which constituents must volunteer to confine themselves. It is, for me, one of the most disturbing trends among other atheists to see self-appointed gurus of alleged science attempting to define who is and is not a *real Atheist*. Science can be as slippery a basis at times as theology for founding movements, if for no other reason, because these elitist definers of what is and isn't don't stop at defining you. As leaders, they also consider themselves to be arbiters of questions about what is or isn't real science. It is really about establishment of orthodoxies by those who are uncomfortable with too much individuality; too much wrongheadedness, as they see it, displayed by lower forms. Curiously, or maybe not so, these priggish colonizers of your intellectual independence are almost always male.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 8, 2018:
Reminds me of the question: "If I'm (you're) so smart, why ain't I rich?" There is a built-in presumption of an inferior status. We, both sexes, are afflicted as early as possible with sets of unnatural notions by the only gods that exist. Where? Gods have been headquartered, comfortably and conveniently, between the ears of self-deluded, sexually pathogenic old males for the last six millennia. The best and healthiest primary drives in us all and beautiful self-love and love of others are quickly harnessed and redirected to artifice after birth but before full gestation. With or without agents of 'voices in their heads' being single - if naturally functioning - is a good thing; the way we arrive and leave. Being 'rich' also often requires being another kind of creature to please 'the gods'.

Is there anyone here who isn't "into weed?"
Silver1wun comments on Jun 7, 2018:
Your pain is felt by many of us. We live in a world dominated by artifice; a perceived need for which is created from within by altering brain functions with substitutional substances and behaviors. 'Weed' seems to be one of the most popular. Religion qualifies too, as do porn, gambling and political ideological activism; when and if they become addictive and take-over in place of unavailable, genuine things that nourish and satisfy natural, primary drives. Some atheists remind me of reformed alcoholics who rejected liquid spirits and replaced them with increased use of tobacco or weed; of those who reject tobacco only to start eating twice as much and becoming over-weight, etc. People not into weed are hard to find alright. Try finding people avoiding rather than clinging to artifice to satisfy secondary drives and it gets a lot harder. There are more daunting tasks though. Just be glad we aren't cartoons. Being Wile E.Coyote or Elmer Fudd would be a lot tougher.

99% of school shootings were done by males . How do we get them to stop ?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 7, 2018:
Many thoughts.on this and for some years. Most of my thoughts are politically incorrect and therefore dismissed out-of-hand. Of the 1% ascribed to females, one can also add that they are very different and far less destructive. Females *know who they are after and why.* When the target/s been hit, they're done; no random murder without reason, as with males. The security budgets in schools could be slashed by almost 50% by making one change that would have some ancillary benefits in both reduced deadly violence and better learning. Have separate schools for males and females beginning at 5th. Grade until graduation from twelfth grade. Females learn better and participate more without presence of males in classrooms and concentrate more on academics in schools wherein personal appearance isn't competitive. Males act-out aggressively amongst themselves naturally and get into disputes and fights. When females are present, many of the fights are motivated by disputes for attention and efforts to show-off for them. Jealousies and competition arise and the humiliation factor multiplies. Boys compete, fight, win and lose routinely without the deep levels of humiliation among only other boys; therefore less fixated, vengeful emotions that, if repeated can fester and be acted out in extreme violence. Girls' schools would only need entry security; cutting budgets by about half. This suggested remedy would be only a band-aid, but society as we know it isn't yet prepared for prevention. Ways by which these violent young men are manufactured aren't understood and if they were, solutions would be even more politically and religiously unacceptable than the suggestion above. We are at least decades, if not centuries, away from that level of awareness and willingness to *act* on the basis of the knowledge.

Is social media ruining peoples ability to connect?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 5, 2018:
The Internet does allow introverts to connect mentally and as emotionally as they'll allow themselves, without ACTUALLY connecting. In that way it reinforces their apprehensions about physical, in-person contact while still allowing safe communication they'd otherwise miss altogether. For others, it is an arena wherein we can screen one another without the usual, in-person distractions of physical attraction and conjuring of unrealistic fantasies; without, for females, having to end up in a wrestling match with somebody afflicted with multiple personality disorder; without having to be encouraged by a few early 'dates' only to discover some ugly truths that should have been a priori.. It has only been about sis months, but I LOVE this site. So many wonderful thinking and thought provoking women are here. In any small locality they are rare. Unfortunately, I think that is why there is so much distance between them; making social interaction in person difficult. Getting to know fascinating women at a distance is far better than not at all or settling for activities with women who's hot topics are latest movies, television, shopping, their grandkids, their herd political activities, finding 'that one' to take care of them or just looking for somebody to come visit and leave in the morning... Nothing wrong with that stuff for those enjoying it, mind you. Obviously there are a lot of men and women here who'd be delighted with some of those examples of 'good times' and so be it. Seems one doesn't need the Internet for it though. It's everywhere. As mentioned, my experience is only six months. Nothing of any value comes easily or over-night. I'm expecting to make some interesting female friends here; some distant and some closer and perhaps among closer, someone who is complete in herself and compatible for sharing a more intimate relationship. If the latter doesn't happen it won't be nearly as tragic as having never known it; especially with good, stimulating friends and activities.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 5, 2018:
Though very disappointed with the ruling, after reading it I had to agree that if one, The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights conflicted with two, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, that alone, depending as in this case, on the circumstances, would allow the Amendment to trump (very intended) the later, more specifically focused act. They considered the aggressive way it was pursued and with an anti-religious motive as well. I don't like religion interfering with or annoying me in the course of daily life any less than any other typical non-believer. For optimal progress toward secularity and away from superstition requires education and the most effective form of education is example. It is the constitution that provides now and will more so in the future, protection of non-belief on a par with belief. One other part of this with which I was uncomfortable was the over-kill aspect and I think it worked against the case ultimately. If a merchant or service business breaks the law and discriminates about who is entitled to all of their services and who is not, it isn't egregious enough to warrant six figure lawsuits and devastating of their lives as punishment. It should be an 'in proportion' fine and either suspension or revocation of their business license. Being put out of business or forced in suspension to modify what is offered* to all* should be sufficient.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 5, 2018:
The most I'm willing to do on a first meeting is mutual screening at lunch or perhaps a picnic somewhere quiet and conversation conducive. Unless I've gotten a acquainted face to face at a first meeting, nothing that could be construed as 'romantic' or a 'date' will happen. Depending on how much conversation on the net and over how much time, I might consider the zoo, shooting pool on a nice afternoon at some comfortable bar. If * really feeling good * about them before a first meeting, I might be open to inviting them on a double date with two of my friends who will also be 'screening'. In the rarest of circumstances, and I mean rare such as she is too far away to travel to meet only and then travel again for an initial date, if mutually agreeable, I'd go somewhere about half-way to meet in an interesting town or city for 2-3 days, with separate rooms or places to stay, perhaps even local friends or relatives for one or both of us to include some of the time. Sounds probably a bit old fashioned to some, but even early-on, one ought to be careful about allowing another person to create unrealistic expectations, not shared but rooted in their personal fantasies. The cop you described is sure afflicted in that regard.

It must be you. I confess that my follows are all women, so that might *look* suspicious on the surface. But, a check on my bio explains why. Following someone, to me, means that you like what you've read and would like to read more; either because of the content or because it seems to be an attractive quality and you want to learn more about them. In your case, Deb, it could easily be both. :)

Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
What many consider a 'day' in this reference is 'God's day'. In another part of the writings a day to the god is considered equal to a thousand years to men. Believers also confuse the description of death and resurrection alleged as a period of three days because it was written that Jesse 'arose on the third day'. Hebrew day ends at sunrise. Estimated time of his death was around 3/4 int the afternoon. After sundown would have been the second day already making the beginning of the 'third day' when he allegedly arose about any time after sundown Saturday. There is only about a day and less than a half on the inside..

There is no way for depth of serousness to control what goes on on the Sun. We can avoid, however, delusions and halucinations by staying out of the Sun's direct rays too long. Might want to give that consideration.

Whoever Controls The Narrative Controls The World [caitlinjohnstone.com]
Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
The Internet is already smashing some icons and severely cracking others, without being compromised. It is admittedly taking awhile, but information that is verifiable and conflicting with many sacrosanct 'narratives' is available. Some of the best of it is on youtube. I like youtube because one can ask that classic question of self and others: "What am I going to believe; the narrative or my 'lyin' eyes?" Chief among them is what is (and has been) going on in Palestine and what happens in our streets that is being billed as 'peaceful'.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
You seem like a sweet person. Maybe this temporary loneliness is a price tag on patience and unwillingness to 'settle' or repeat errors born of wishful thinking. Our standards do improve along the way or we aren't learning much. Being ourselves is, in a way, taking care of Nature by respecting her gifts as an expression of private gratitude I think Nature is about balance; showing overall intentionality in scale balancing events far beyond limitations of personified gods. This too will pass. This atheist sees rain as a good omen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXpUoL52a1w

How do you know when blue cheese has gone bad?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 3, 2018:
If it hasn't 'gone bad' it isn't cheese. Not sure if this is meant to be humorous, co please don't take my answer as an insult. if it's serious, I think its adorable. Cheese can degrade to an unappetizing condition that makes it hardly worth bothering to clean of excess mold sometimes. So far, and I certainly will stand corrected if a factual refutation is forthcoming, I've never seen cheese that went bad in the way it is applied to other types of food,

Silver1wun comments on Jun 3, 2018:
Though some definitions could be 'sticking points', it would be a definite yes. When I contact though, it is usually subtle and but once. If no reciprocation occurs, it goes to 'back burner'. Never have been and never will be aggressive in things that require full, dual participation.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 3, 2018:
Partisan cattle ALWAYS go into full panic mode when they lose. Left and Right lunatic fringes whine and throw juvenile tantrums and insult in every childish way possible the person chosen by the people under our system.. This time only seems more strident because the whiners have full sympathy and support of the press; but the hysteria is no different. If the party-loyal, ideologically obedient minions of their respective, corrupt masters ever do represent a majority, the Republic and what is left of our constitution will disintegrate. It matters not whether they are a hardened Socialist/Communist fanatic or a Fundamentalist Theological fanatic. The bottom line on them all is: Any of them would violate ANY constitutional principle they thought necessary to advance their ignorance laced ideologies. "We the People' of this republic always choose our chief executive from the middle. The non-affiliated, level headed adults in the socio-political mainstream always hold our collective noses and determine which of the corrupt candidates for Plantation Manager will be hired. The partisans only control who the two 'choices' will be. At least they did until the last election. Corrupt or not, because all politicians are corrupted as a first order of business in D.C., Trump pulled it off and the 'king-makers' lost control. They feed infantile pap to party loyal zombies on both sides and are doing all possible to pull-off a nonviolent (save assassinations) coup; attempting to strangle the People's choice in red tape and baseless inuendos. Really fun to watch!

That is the problem for me. It should be called a meeting site. Who the Hell wants to arrange a 'date' with somebody tjey've never met? Anyone who's had friends put them through that knows what I mean. Funny, but your post reminded me of a commercial I did a few years ago for a date business in which I portrayed (in double entendre) an old bastard maeveling over the idea of looking for dates on line. Will look for the link and come back to add it. Might require sitting through all four 30 second 'spots' though.

My apology for commenting uninvited, being neither a lady nor being supportive of the system that gave birth to the term. Can't recall the article's name or author, but this very topic is addressed in a way soooo funny, that I REALLY almost fell off the chair with laughter. Perhaps someone here remembers the article. If not, it is easily found as one of the contributions published in an anthology edited by Ruth Barrett titled 'Female Erasure'. I bought ot on Amazon and it was published, this year. The piece is a scream! The book itself is NOT to miss, great stuff.

Nothing in your description suggests that you would insist on her going through a superstitious ritual. Yet she, according to you expects it. On the face of it she's demonstrating a serious lack of respect for who you are. Love respects and admires. If those elements are absent, so is love. One sided love has a short, doomed shelf life. I'd work on self respect and self love and admiration. Because if you are prepared to counterfeit who you are to please a woman who doesn't show respect or tolerance for your differences, you both appear to share the same dim point of view and valuation of... you. Bargain away what little of yourself you hold in esteem this time and you'll have even less to 'bring to the table' next time.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 2, 2018:
Jo was Russian, like many of the land grabbing invaders and leadership in Israel have been. They really know how to 'spit on their hands' and get it done. It must be so frustrating for the Zionist leaders having such a small piece of real estate and smaller captive population, while being restrained by international law and monitoring. Instead of pursuing a final solution by 'scalping the lawn' they must settle for 'mowing the grass'. Jo and Adolf weren't under such restraints.
Identity Politics
Silver1wun comments on Jun 2, 2018:
Exactly what Huey was talking about. People have this deranged compulsion to 'belong' to a political movement, philosophy or party; seemingly as a confirmation of their worthiness or validation of positions with which they find an identity. They are all the same (include religion in that) faith based chicken in a pot with pie in the sky for dessert. Artifice to titillate imaginations and keep stomachs empty. Loved Huey's style! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MKb35NK0F0

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
This isn't the first post I've seen from women who seem to draw the attention, especially critical attention of grown men who express themselves like juveniles. It led me to wonder how prevalent is this crap? Do you females really get such a surge of obnoxious and judgmental indictments from males with whom you've never communicated, let alone met?? I've only been on this about six months. Visitors number around 150. about 21 women have sent private messages, all of them mature and civilized. Maybe this comment ought to be a post. Too many guys posting anyway. They really are in greater numbers but often with less to say or just stuff to link. Anyway, I know it's tougher for females. Is it really THAT TOUGH though?

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
The most important one to 'forgive' is yourself for either having misjudged the other or for really knowing on a deeper level and not allowing yourself to confront it out of some illusion of probable loss by doing so. Trust is only half trust as it applies to the other. The other half is self-trust in your own perceptions and judgments. Only we can be responsible for that half. It is 'we' that will be with us for the rest of life and therefore more important to make peace at home and learn from it. The other is irrelevant after separation.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
I follow people who's statements appear to have depth and those who express themselves in ways that resonate personally. That's it. No other interest either required or ruled out. As for having a 'following' of any significance, it is nice to know that others are interested but I hope not too many.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
Only this week they confiscated boats and returned Gazans trying to run the Israeli blockade on the largest open-air (read concentration camp) prison in the world. My country makes this and a host of other crimes against humanity possible by supporting Israel's crimes against humanity and calling it 'defense' at the rate of over $10 million a day and rising. Israel isn't the only terrorist state or group. It is just the only one that depends on our support to carry them out. I'm NOT a Leftist. One doesn't have to be a political Leftist or Rightist to have compassion and to believe what your lyin' eyes are telling you. The historic proverb Israel exemplifies with citing the holocaust for self-licensing of atrocities: "Choose your enemies carefully, for you will become like them." Israel's Energy Minister, just yesterday advocated a final solution for the inconvenient people of Gaza. “I do not rule out the possibility of conquering Gaza and destroying it once and for all.” -Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz Political Zionists are preparing for their own style of 'final solution', it seems.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
One of the things I've learned about people, women in particular, is that the greater part of beauty cannot be perceived by the eyes alone. A few years ago I was a bit startled when happening upon a quotation that resonated in a similar way. Learning from whom it came was startling and gave me a bit of a spine chill. "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller I knew of her from having seen the movie portrayal of her childhood. After learning more about her since, the idea of spending an afternoon comparing philosophical notes would be an adventure of a lifetime.
