@Hfantods, June is a good month. Might be slightly biased considering it is my birth month 😛
I have my first wedding in Ontario April 1st and bought my tickets. Curious to see what a post Omicron wave wedding will be like!
I enjoy seeing all the styles of wedding bands etc people go for. One person who lives in Montana got a sapphire (which look to be a teal color, dayum gorgeous) as it is a common stone there. Another as pink moissanite. My two friends who got engaged look to have diamonds. But will confirm in person when I see them. I personally like Amethyst and plan to get one when and if that day comes.January 13, 2022 at 9:30 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1101821
Dermatologists recommend using mineral SPF sunscreen over the chemical sunscreens, I have heard good things about blue lizard, which is an Australian brand of face and body sunscreen.
I have battled with the cost though of mineral based sunscreen due to quantity and cost you pay. But I think for the skin and environmental benefits I will be looking into some new purchases this year.December 8, 2021 at 10:29 pm in reply to: Covid Support Thread #1100784
@Lucidity Done! I actually totally forgot about that issue and was glad to do a creep through this thread to catch up, and remind me to message them!
Hope you are feeling better!November 22, 2021 at 3:39 pm in reply to: Covid Support Thread #1100351
@hfantods, thanks! I got a negative test result! Took two days so had a couple days to fully recover whatever symptoms I had. I seemed to get the worst the first day, then congestion the last two days. But better safe than sorry.
@lucidity I am super tempted to send an email to the owner of my gym. I signed on and the guy didn’t take my vaccine info, I brought it up a couple days later when I went back in, but honestly if he forgot mine then I can only imagine how many others he “forgot.” There is a chain gym I was using before that asked you to show and declare your passport and you couldn’t sign in unless it was noted in your file. They seem to be more on it. While the chain has a location in my new town, but it isn’t walkable or as convenient as this one closer to me.November 16, 2021 at 8:01 pm in reply to: Covid Support Thread #1100129
So I decided to get tested for COVID tomorrow. I have been moving into my place the last couple days and just started my new job yesterday. I was feeling a bit meh yesterday but chalked it up to doing so much on the weekend and not having proper down time. Then today things didn’t get worse per-say, but I was not feeling super awesome, so went home early and booked a test for tomorrow AM.
I am so frustrated for a few reasons, 1) first week and I may be sick either with cold/flu or COVID. 2) My apartment complex as signs every where advising people to wear masks in common areas, and aside from the building manager NO ONE has been wearing them. 3) I signed up for a two week trial at a local gym nearby and the guy didn’t ask for my vaccine passport, which you are supposed to for fitness centers here. So I went in this morning and was like ‘you forgot to ask for my vaccine passport, here it is.’
I have been SO good the last 6 months + about keeping well. Then as soon as I move there is this. Really hoping it is just a cold/flu. Even still need to stay home the rest of the week to recover.October 29, 2021 at 12:36 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1099556
haha wow!! That was a real zinger of an update. So ridiculous.
My co worker got married last summer and invited from the looks of it and from talking with old co workers some of the office. So it isn’t totally unheard of. Guess it depends how close you are to the team etc. They can always decline, but the sentiment is there.October 27, 2021 at 4:34 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1099486
@hfantods, lucky I am not moving provinces, just cities. Will be going into the Interior of BC in the Okanagan, wine country! Looking forward to the hiking, lakes and wineries to explore 🙂October 25, 2021 at 5:24 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1099375
I really like BOGS! They are more insulated than other brands, and thicker sole as well. I have almost knee high, but I believe they also sell calf high styles too.October 20, 2021 at 1:29 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1099249
@MaterialsGirl, date 4 went well! Unfortunately after a couple more dates I realized there were some mismatched interests and decided to end it.
I am defending my Masters in a week and a half and landed a new job that I will start next month, which requires me to move. So regardless I wouldn’t have been able to maintain the relationship long distance.
I am quite busy now with getting ready for the defense and getting all the bells and whistles for my move sorted.September 16, 2021 at 11:56 pm in reply to: Hello all from Robert #1097886
I don’t recall the thread that Robert quoted me on, not going to try and find it. But yes, sometimes I do have a few people with whom I sort through. I especially noted this because I primarily use apps and so there is limited space on the profiles to understand the person in comparison to websites, so yes there tends to be an ‘interview’ like process. Good profiles give me more info, some I put more work in to learn about them. It is totally normal to feel people out online or on the app making sure there is some common ground, of course I want to know if I have some common interests and values, and our dealbreakers align before meeting in person.
Dating is not always logical, there are biological, chemistry and emotional responses that come with it. As such, these additional components can be very difficult to understand and relate to when you don’t think the same way or have the natural instincts others may have. You have tried to analyze and approach dating with a logical computer like approach, which I get if that is how you think and are wired, but if you can’t even fathom or try to understand the biological etc component of dating, then you have made it harder on yourself. Either build the tools to understand (through therapy), listen to the broader advice here, or get off dating. Because you haven’t been receptive to the bigger picture issues, it prevent you from breaking out of this dating slump.September 16, 2021 at 11:07 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1097885
thanks ya’ll!September 15, 2021 at 12:46 pm in reply to: Anyone going on awesome dates? #1097800
I have been dabbling again in dating, unfortunately was turned down by one guy I had gone out with 4 times, pretty sure it was due to me not wanting kids, and him wanting them. Although it wasn’t explicitly stated, it would be a dealbreaker for me on my end anyways.
I was seeing someone concurrently, and it seems we match better, he isn’t super keen on kids and or doesn’t have a strong affinity for them. We have date 4 planned this weekend to go to a game room, somewhat like an arcade but larger and way more diversity in games. Then dinner at his place 😉
