    Right! My current and last jobs, I was absolutely not fully qualified for – I got hired on my personality (believe it or not, hahaha).

    I don’t even take it as an insult from him, because girl, he has no idea what’s going on.

    I don’t disagree with that, Ron, but remember he was in his 20s and so was she. He’s not attracting women that young, and women my age are like wtf.

    And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    She said I think I remember the film
    And as I recall I think we both kind of liked it
    And I said well that’s the one thing we’ve got

    Yes, Lars and the Real Girl. I remember my parents loved that movie, and when they love a movie they watch it repeatedly.

    It’s not a bad movie. Definitely recommend for Robert.

    Omg “average BMI.”

    Preferably slim, but will accept up to average BMI. Long hair a must.

    People get hired all the time who don’t even qualify for the entire job description, be a of chemistry. People get together romantically who don’t check all each other’s boxes because of chemistry.

    Even to your example about hiring, Robert: At companies and even big corporations, the hiring manager is looking for chemistry, and they’re looking for unique skills that can drive change. They are not just looking to stick any cog into a wheel. Personality and chemistry are important. Team fit. Cultural fit. Would I like to have dinner with them.

    Not sure why you’re weighing in on this anyway, having never worked for “the man,” but yeah, your assessment is off.

    And yes, it is super creepy and gross to say you “didn’t get anything” out of a date in exchange for your money. You don’t buy a second date. If you feel like you’re being scammed into paying for dinner, don’t fucking agree to dinner. If someone is insisting on you taking them to dinner and you’ve never even met, politely decline. You should always be suggesting a drink. If they say no, let’s do dinner, they’re an idiot or scammer. Just take a pass. A woman who’s honestly trying to meet a guy for a relationship isn’t going to nix your suggestion of a drink and insist on dinner.

    If you’re getting scammed by women and mechanics on the regular, that’s on you.

    When I took my first art history class, we went to a local museum and were supposed to just find a piece that spoke to us and write a short paper about it. I looked around and saw a bust of a guy who reminded me of the vice principal at my high school, who was a character. He was in charge of discipline, so I interacted with him a bit. And he seemed conflicted. Anyway, I saw something in the expression of this head in the museum that made me pick it. I researched the Emperor Diocletian, whose likeness this was, and learned about what kind of guy he was and what was going on in his life at the time this sculpture was made, and how that came across in how the artist represented him.

    Question: Do you get that there’s no one, true, objective way for an artist to paint or sculpt someone? Even with a photo, there isn’t. It’s one moment in time. A piece of art actually captures their essence, their humanity. Does that make any sense to you? It should, if you think back to your old profile pics and how we instructed you to do the new ones. You’re the same person but the two sets of pics say totally different things about you.

    Robert, you’re lacking some component that other people have that allows them to pick up on nuances, emotions, intuitive feelings, associations, gut responses, etc., about other people.

    Your reaction to art is really interesting and kind of says it all. Have you *ever* seen a piece of art that made you feel something? Or made you curious to know what it means, or what was going on with the artist, or the person shown in the art? I was an art history minor, and this interests me.

    I don’t know if this is part of something like autism that could be diagnosed, but just realize that you’re not operating like most people. How about instead of saying 10,009 times that you don’t understand it and it’s on us to argue you to seeing it differently, you just accept it?
