At what point in a person's life should they get a significant other?
Apparently we do have a facebook... You should go ahead and like it

Oh look and a twitter... Yeah follow us there too pls

If only people would talk back it wouldn't be so lonely.[In B4 I get overwhelmed]

Things that I support


Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.


intel best ethernet controllers


ammo regen pls


TL;DR: all vehicles in BF4 are screwed up in some way or another.



I know I shouldn't be surprised that something like that even exists but.... 8|

when they meet one they think they could stay with for pretty much ever.

it's not like you can say "that girl looks cute, k i'll marry her"



or maybe you can... but don't expect a satisfying result.

My mother is having shit luck with cars... My fathers car has electric seats and blatantly refuse to move forward enough for her to reach the pedals so she's just sitting there dangling her legs.. Her own car is making a scraping sound from the front wheels, but never when I drive it. I just took it for a 20 minute joyride doing all kinds of shit to it and it was completely silent the whole time :>

Doesn't it depend on person tho? There are some people who honestly seem to be happy being single and stuff. Of course clear majority would like to have somebody special in their lives, but imho better just 'let it happen if it happens' instead of forcing anything :v.

Speaking of which: Wonder why dating services have such bad stigma. If they use right statistical methods and have proven to be better than random sampling from localized group (ie. where you meet other people naturally), then they should benefit everyone. Big dating service would offer much larger set of suggestions, offer more info in convenient format and offer statistically sound suggestions. I guess they have so many 'troll'-accounts and people adding untruthful info about themselves it breaks the system, but never paid attention to this.

I guess we just need few more years to gain methods to model humen brains accurately enough and show how simple things like "emotions" and "feelings" are. I am honestly looking forward to those definitions and formulas :v

Oooo that was pretty much what I think, minus the negative things :D. Altho feelings might be just chemical reactions I don't see why people shouldn't 'enjoy' them (whatever that is). Evolution has done good job training our brain's basic configuration to have a ton of features at birth (eg. people learn what love feels like instead of learning to how to love).

IDK, once I got it "embedded" it seemed like it was broken, so I went back and changed it...



I had one friend who was completely driven by the need to have a girlfriend. He went through several girlfriends in the time he was dating (maybe 5-6 girls in 2-3 years or so). In the end it cost him many of his friends, his family, and even went as far as jeopardizing his occupation.

He had this one girl he was nearly obsessed over. He was basically whipped, and no matter what current plans were going on or who he was hanging out with if she called him he'd leave. It was really pissing a lot of us off. There'd be 4 or 5 of us all hanging out, we had gone for dinner, and now we're in the back yard having a bonfire and sharing some drinks, he'd get a call, walk away to take it, then after like 20 minutes we'd go looking for him and his car would be gone. Not even a goodbye or an I'll be back.
And then we'd ask what happened, he'd say that Kelly called and wanted to hang out. What were they doing? Maybe fucking, but he told us they were just talking or watched a movie or something. We said, why doesn't he ever invite her out to hang with us if she was just bored? But he never would do that. I think I met her once for like 15 minutes because he stopped by my place quickly to drop off a book or something and she was in the passenger seat. But even so she occupied maybe 70% of his free time. It got to the point I would almost say I was jealous! She was stealing away my best friend!
And to make it worse, if he was out by her and I knew it 100%, I could blow up his phone and he would completely ignore me. If, say, I was in the middle of changing the clutch on my Jeep and he was elbows deep in grease and tools along with me, having made a commitment to help me change the clutch, his phone would go off, he'd run inside and clean up, then dash out with hardly a condolence. Was it an emergency? Was she in the hospital? Did her car just break down on the interstate? No. Just fuck everyone else, Kelly called.

When they broke up, he was incredibly depressed. We were all really worried about him and tried to cheer him up, but he was adamant of going out and meeting someone else immediately.
We all tried to have him chill out, that he shouldn't jump back into a relationship if his emotions aren't in check, that maybe instead of trying to find a girl that catches his eye and trying to make it work out, he should focus on his interests and the "right girl" will be met naturally.
But what he ended up doing was basically saying "fuck you all, I NEED a girl in my life, what I don't need is more time hanging out with all of you! If you haven't had a girlfriend you don't understand!"
So he basically renounced many lifelong friendships to chase some tail. Where is he now? I don't know. I haven't seen him in years, and neither has his family. He might be dead, committed suicide after his latest GF dropped him like a hot rock. I wouldn't be surprised, his emotions completely controlled his life.


I'm basically the exact opposite. I'm not after a girl hardly at all. I'd like a girl at some point, but I'm not going to force it to happen, especially not at great cost to myself. I just do what I do, and if I meet someone while being me, then awesome!

eh, i see it more in amethodical way, reflecting psycology rather than chemistry and definitely not shit like faith destiny and all that crap, but to be honest, my own idea of love and person to love it's so complex in my own mind, that i would not be able to explain it(like a fuckton of things that run trough my mind, that's why i'm always terribad at explaining myself)

i mean, regarding bare chances i believe that pretty much everyone who will die of death by age will also have at least one girlfriend, but that being said, i don't think it's related to faith and stuff, just finding the right person who doesn't say "fuck that thing" to everything you like, and keep it close,not obsessively though, and that's where psycology comes in, and shit gets really complicated.
if i was in a relationship i'd probably go crazy trying to fine tune every single one of my reactions and acts(and i kind of already do that with any person i like in general: a friend,, my mother, my best friend, youtubers, a bunch of sym guys...)

I just do what I do, and if I meet someone being me, then awesome!

And in case you don't meet anybody you coud try boost chances with one of those dating services :v (I knooow they sound bad, but if they work right and you tread carefully they should be all okeyish). Meeting people via natural coincidences face-to-face is so out fashion anyways </jk>. Also regarding your story: Ouchhh... I am lucky enough to have friends that do not have partners yet :v. Only one lives with his girlfriend but we still see every now and then (rate of meetings didn't change too much).

@iota-09
Brains are indeed super complex but we're slowly getting to the point where we have, theoretically, enough computing power to emulate them in practical manner. Unless brain cells somehow 'work' on quantum level we should be able to model them with mathematics accurately. However AFAIK this is just the brain-cell part of brain, and brains have all kind of hormones and transmitters and whatnot which can affect the computation of whole brain. Finally big part of what we are is due to certain configuration of brain systems, and said computational model would be completely random one.

But one day...
