    Okay going to try and write this up in a way that isn't me being the biggest asshole...

    The gossip folks...

    OnTheLastCastle cptrugged credeiki BeNarwhal Ludious
    So I went on a first date tonight. One of 5 in the last few weeks. Fuck dating btw. But moving on...

    She chose a place I really like and I figured at least I would have some good beer and popcorn. As they give free popcorn. (I never got popcorn btw, the beer was good)

    So we met. The introductions and some general statements. Work talk. Then the conversation moved stuff about I guess a holiday for the 13th and 14th amendments. Which I would be cool with.

    Then it begins...

    So this was partially because I mentioned going to Manassas National Battlefield with my mom to hike. And she was like, well at least you can hike there. Then goes into a thing how we shouldn't have historical sites to battles. She then asks me what battles happened at Manassas and who won. I tell her and she then goes, maybe we shouldn't since the Confederacy won the first one. I am just kind of confused now but okay. I am from the West the Civil War isn't a huge thing but at least most folks have some basic understanding that a civil war is between folks of the same country and history has relevance and importance.

    There was a bit about people worshiping the civil war and I don't disagree that we have issues in large swaths teaching it now but I think she kind of was missing th epoint in the idea we should remove all monuments to it. I tend to prefer places like Manassas to be stay as it is the national park service and does a good job presenting the history a rather not creepy way.

    So then we move to Columbus day. I did Indigenous People's day or was, I got sick but my friend did instead. General opinion about how Columbus was a dick. Then get into Colonization. She gets into a nasty rant about the Japanese on this. I talk about the complex stuff behind it that doesn't excuse it but what makes the Japanese colonial experience interesting. And also inform her that the Dutch and Belgium had colonies and Belgium was way worse. Which they are like my gold standard. Oh Congo. Which most folks in DC know. Its an odd world of the super educated so I am feel like I am now in some morass and talking to someone with a very cursory knowledge of like anything.

    I try to curtail this spiral and ask about what types of things she enjoys. She says movies. Which I am like,
    what was the best movie you have watched. At this point she literally looks and me and says after thing a bit, "You probably wouldn't know it I don't go to AMC or main stream theaters but only to Landmark."
    I actually think I saw the trailer for what she said but whatever.

    This leads to her dismissing Rey in SW as, "Small steps" and then not knowing about Moonlight which confused me considering her statement on the type of movies she likes. I am really just wanting to finish my beer.

    At the end we get into the joyous talk about sports, which is normally fine. But her discussion of sports is like talking to an forumer whose name starts with T about police. She brought it to race, thank you NFL,
    I talk about though it isn't perfect it does produce a platform that isn't always there. She goes into more rants. And she asks me, "You believe it is better for PoC now than it was 50 years ago?" And my response was, "Yes but there are many more miles and much that needs to be done." Her response to this was,
    "Well good thing you work in the government then!"

    With that tabs were gotten. I had a good beer at least.

    But my god it was the most frustrating person I have talked to. And not because I disagree where she is coming from but it was like talking to someone whose knowledge of complex topics was from a cursory glance at wikipedia or twitter or maybe a facebook headline. I hadn't run into that in years.

    So basic




    understanding of complex issues

    But also...

    man what a first date conversation! Do people not normally just talk about themselves and work and stuff? Let's Discuss Colonization is pretty heavy.

    my real question is how has this not come up prior to the date. like how do you hide that personality before agreeing to go out for a date.

    but i don't know anything about dating or how people go on dates so. . .

    This was through bumble.

    Total discussion on there was some general crap. And her team doing a D&D at a trivia thing and I think that was it? I despise modern dating I really do.

    I guess I know the rule about internet dating is once you catch their attention you have to hurry to meet in person.

    it's all so tiresome. like. . .give me my A.I. girlfriend please. i do not look forward to returning to anything in that process.

    The British method of dating is essentially "get drunk, repeatedly wake up next to someone, eventually figure out that they're not going to go away, congratulations you now have a partner".

    Bonus points if you can remember their name at some point during the proceedings.
