    I'm getting a different vibe from that matter. I'm getting that Red has a little bit of emotional baggage from his ex, that's giving him a hard time ignoring her body type, whether or not he's attracted to her. It's kind of like if your parents raised you to believe that smoking was evil, and you met someone who smoked, even if it didn't actually bother you, you may have difficulty because of all the fucked up lung pictures your parents showed you when you were a kid.

    that's also possible and not something to be ashamed of

    just something to recognize that your brain is doing and you gotta recognize whether it is something you want to work past or work within

    also unless you're talking about someone who is super unhealthily obese, comparing smoking to body type is a false equivalency

    o hey peeps
    arguing over me

    um, yeah, it's hangups i have from my ex, kinda over what i myself look like in relation to her goddamn skinny ass
    when i met her, she had like a 4-pack
    and getting past where i'm like o hey, not-rail thin can be attractive too (myself included)
    and making sure i don't pack bullshit baggage with me, i guess

    a no, not obese, just not little
    but seriously she's more than just that, and i like her

    I don't think we're arguing

    but yeah my suggestion stands

    it sounds like you're projecting your own body image issues onto this lady to some degree

    maybe do something with your genitals together and you'll find it's actually totally hot

    or maybe you won't, and that's also totally fine!

    I do think you should use this as an opportunity to explore your sexuality because it will help you work out some of these issues in a safe environment

    (assuming she also wants to rock your jock, of course)

    I wasn't trying to draw a realistic logical equivalency, it was just the first thing that jumped into my mind.

    Replace smoking with alcohol and lung pics with liver pics, I guess, I don't know.

    Okay this probably shouldn't bother me

    but red

    I believe you have a high-level qualification in English of some kind

    and then you used myriad incorrectly, aaaaaaah

    Also, the best part about internet dating has been that it sent my life flying in a completely unexpected direction that has turned out to be pretty cool

    What else the internet is good for

    finding roommates
    finding friends
    finding optometrists
    finding pretty much any material thing you are looking for
    finding pets

    I suppose the one thing I have not used the internet for is finding a job. Perhaps one day... and then I think I could pretty much lay claim to almost every aspect of my life having been affected by the internet, crazy!

    Actually because an alternate use of myriad is as an indefinite number (or actually exactly ten thousand in archaic usage) either form is correct

    ...WIET HURRY UP
