Young God, Male, 33

I finally saw the lowest price for Swans’ Cop album ($33. Still ouchie, yes, but less so than other times I’ve seen it.) and ordered it. Jan 27, 2022 at 1:26 PM

      I refuse to give up wanting a girlfriend just because some dislike me and don’t want a relationship to happen for me.

        refuse, dislike, don't want.....are negative positions. Try thinking how you want to feel, be, act....in positive terms.

        If the approval of others becomes a substantive basis. For personal confidence and general self worth. Then you build a house on a foundation of ice no one will or can respect that.

        "having a lover" is rather objectifying. Instead of framing the experience as if it were obtaining a possession, how about thinking "I want to be a lover."? Loving is a behavior.

        Same. It reminds me too much of the present; namely because it's weird.

        It does. Two days ago now, my right ear was burning yesterday and my throat felt like it was full of snot. It made me feel gross.

        They are also lyrics to Pigface’s Empathy. Michael Gira, the core of Swans, sang on that version while Jarboe sang on Hypogirl.

      To look or not to look for a relationship? The answers I get confuse me.

        Hookups aren’t all they’re cracked up to be either :/ And the kind of people who just want to “hook up” are probably not interested in the long run.
        I think it’s ridiculous to suggest that to you too, because it sounds like you would prefer to be really emotionally invested in someone.
        And I’m socially inept too… the people who hooked up with me quickly realized that. They wanted sex.

        I haven’t been in a relationship because no one has ever wanted one with me. Like not interested in being invested in me because I’m awkward and not that good looking and people find me annoying. My gender identity is also a turnoff. Men hooked up with me for my “feminine” body parts.

        Listen to crewlucaa, Markness; hookup culture is just another way for people to treat other people as things. You, on the other hand, are above that.

      Another disappointing trip to the Sans Bar. I suppose it was just a brief vapor of joy.

        Isn’t that what I should do instead of staying at home, though?

        The problem is neither going out or staying home. It's the reaction to the experience, the stories you tell yourself before, during, and after.

        A lot of it is because I am 33 and it gets frustrating when I keep getting disappointing results.
