i think i never had a genuine friendship with a girl. it always feels so superficial. until i finished school (after that it get's kind of hard to naturally meet girls if you study computer science lol) plenty of girls liked me but it never really worked out. you just can not have a conversation with them the same way you can with a good guy friend. i wish i was gay that would make things easier i think. girls like other stuff. yes there are ones that are into the stuff im into but that is pretty rare already. and even if they are into the same things that doesn't mean the personality fits. idk i just never had the feeling that i could be the real me that i am with my close friends. and tbh it's not worth it to maintain a relationship just to fuck or just for the sake of having a gf. sex isn't even that much better than using your hand. i think the problem is that when you sit at your pc all day you have very different hobbies and interests than normal ppl and even live in a somewhat different culture i feel like. they won't understand my references, they won't understand where i'm comin from.
i mean for example you watch a movie with her and she wants do see a really shitty movie like lets say an adam sandler movie, how am i ever gonna be able to have a real conversation with such a person ever againe? i mean i wanna tell that person why i think this is a bad movie, but i feel like it would amount to nothing because there will be 1000 other things that person thinks drastically different about and i have to explain myself.
i like that ajot is small because you know the other posters personality somewhat from their previous posts. on bigger forums you just read an alias and it means nothing to you, some random in a crowd. here you know and love the guys behind. plus theres some pretty weird ppl here that make it interesting. also you can talk about whatever the fuck you want and say whatever the fuck. quality shitposting goin on here.
also, the primary purpose of all religions was (is) to pass on behavior
and they've done a remarkable job at exactly that (and still do)
it's not really about facts or logic or whether god exists or whatever. it's not trying to pass on a story or a set of laws, it's trying to pass on a behavior
don't mix church practice with faith - the church is just a manifestation (of varying purity). it's kind of like languages - same idea, different form. some interpretations are even flat out violent (i.e. extremism)
the whole, entire thing is a giant metaphor. just because we understand physics much better by now doesn't make it any less relevant. it still has a huge impact, and its still being used as a way to pass on certain behaviors. try to come up with a better way to pass on morality and decency to children
