“At first I was surprised to learn all about the frustrations most men seem to have of the apps. ”
I mean generally online dating involves a lot of rejection. You’re asking people out or reaching out to be people with less of a foundation than you would have on other circumstances so you are more likely to get rejected more often . There are platforms that are better or worse than others but that’s baseball. If you are incapable of understanding the internality of other humans it may seem unfair and cruel.
Even setting aside online dating there are just more resources out there for meeting people and finding a partner these days.* There’s no excuse for causing others or yourself problems at the workplace. I guess that this is a species of my “half the world is women” advice . Lotsa people out there, lots of ways to meet em. No good reason to pursue a problematic dating situation.
This is also not great.
“And, no, I didn’t use the app once saw one profile like that and then stopped. I used the app for three months and came across it multiple times; it was rage-inducing as it felt like the woman with those profiles was just out to waste my time.”
We are having guests in our house for the first time in a year! We figure that between them being vaccinated (teacher and doctor)and my having antibodies and the Bride with both we will be safe.
I am still going to keep some distance and keep the windows open.
So, I’m still sick. It’s weird-I’ve never developed severe symptoms, but my nausea hasn’t abated at all in nearly two weeks. I can’t really eat more than a few things without feeling terrible. On one hand I know that I’m lucky to have avoided severe illness. On the other hand, it’s been emotionally draining how long this has gone on and not knowing if it’s ever going to end.
My wife is doing better. The Spawn tested negative twice and is negative for antibodies. So she isn’t patient zero and didn’t get it at the orthodontist.
We have no idea how we could have gotten this. The only time that anyone had any unmasked contact with a non-household member was when the Bride went into Whole Foods for two minutes wearing a KN95 mask to pick up a pre-order. The other alternative is that we got it off of a package/surface.
I’ve had pretty persistent nausea and on and off muscle pain for about a week. It hasn’t been so bad in an of itself-I haven’t been bedridden. It’s just the general uncertainty about the disease’s course and the abrupt way that my mom died from it adds a lot of fear and uncertainty to the process. On average it is a fourteen day disease course with things improving around day ten. So hopefully I’ll start seeing some improvement around the end of this week.
I just tested positive. I am currently feeling fine (other than terror and anxiety). PCR tests are super sensitive. so possible that I had COVID symptoms last week when I was feeling headachey and nauseous. Possible also that I just got it from the Bride and I am about to get sick. The future is full of exciting possibilities. We are waiting for results for the Spawn.
