    I'm a white Christian dude and I still loathe the idea of flying to the US because of shit like this.

    I just found out someone I used to table top with, who ran games I played in, games I enjoyed? Is a white supremacist. Not just a rando Trump supporting person who is blithely unaware of their own racism, but an active white supremacist who finds value in the "fourteen words" and has his own youtube channel where people laud his racist, anti-Semitic sentiments.

    Finding out made me want to bleach my insides and scrub my skin raw. I haven't talked to this guy in years, but it just hit me so hard.

    Pro: Going out on a date for the first time in almost a year with a super cute nerdy woman who's around my age, who has her shit together, and plays DnD. Thicc an nerdy, that's how I like'em.

    Con: Getting a call from her the next day to say she's come down with something nasty, and then proceed to be laid up in bed because you caught the viral laryngitis that she gave me. Also, spent four hours in the ER, and then another hour or so getting fluid pumped into me via IV because I was too dehydrated since I couldn't swallow anything because my throat hurt so much.

    Side Pro: Found out what morphine feels like. Holy shit.

    NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE.

    Look man. LOOK.

    Just offer to hang out while you both have this wildly contagious thing that you can't give to each other anymore while you both have it.

    <.<

    Unless you think it's too soon to see each other's mucus-dripping nostrils and stuffy noses and red eyes and shit, that's understandable... I guess.

    The true test of any relationship.


  • Pitcrew

    When you end up in a weekend ritual because you don't have the power to decide where or when, but the moment you have any power or say, the other person turns into a toddler, complete with bitchy tantrum.



  • You know what grinds my gears? Immune-deficiency disorders. Why? Because I was born with one. It's a family trait that some times skips a generation but not me! The older I get the more easily I become sick. I keep trying to get into a game but by the time I make a character, get into it, build a good power base, make friends and start to make moves I'll get sick then I can't get to my computer for weeks, some times months.

    I'm probably a few years away from being a bubble boy or dead and it pisses me off. MUSHing was one of the few things I could enjoy growing up because it let me socialize without being around people. Now I get knocked out of the game without warning and I don't even feel like going back to catch up.

    TLDR: Whine, whine, whine, life is unfair. Nothing can be done. I just needed to vent. :P

    Relationships aren't built on love, they are built on the capacity to look past the other person's bullshit and control your own enough to be tolerable. Love is what you give each other as a reward for doing this.


  • Pitcrew

    Def. depends on the people. Not a whole lot grosses me out, due to past occupations, so even as a young hot and single 20 something, if I had a date come down with violent food poisoning on the way home (poor guy, I felt so bad for him), or other body horror stuff it did not put me off.

    I get the feeling I'm an outlier though, so it might be best to wait on testing your 1 date relationship for true love until you've moved past the mega-mucus and/or coughing jags so bad they make you pee/vomit stage. Probably.

    There is a great comedian called Bo Burnham who wrote a song about love. Great advice. Enjoy.

    And some people are just natural caretakers!

    I admit I am totally grossed out by things, but a need to tend to people I care about/like generally overrides that. :D

    I'm not sure what love has to do with what I said. U.u


  • Pitcrew

    For the record, I'm only just getting over being sick today. As in, my throat doesn't hate me and my tonsils aren't swollen to the size of grapefruits that I don't want to talk. I had forgotten what it was like to swallow water without pain, it's bee so long.

    On the other hand, my date from last Monday has been sick-free since Friday because she lacks tonsils, so maybe it was easier for her to get over. I got to suffer.

    Still. Worth it. I'm going to hope the second date will not be nearly as tragic.
