I haven't read that yet....soon.....this thread came off the heels of a couple comments on the "Female desire" thread in the Ladies section ... it wasn't the 1st time a poster complained & I genuinely wanted to hear preferences.. some have given reasons I would have never entertained...
I got this said
1. have I offended you in any way?
Offend...I was taken a back with your 1st post... like "damn!' ...but this is a free forum... I asked..it's good to know who can't stand us...and why... It's the internet.. you are a complete stranger to me.. if I am going to go cry in the corner over this.. I got some issues, now wouldn't I... the fact that others don't feel this way... helps! ... If I got an onslaught of posts like that.. well.. I might leave with my tail inbetween my legs ..of course..
2. if so is my apology sufficient?
I found you a tad humble after my posts, which I give you credit for. I hold no ill will against your cyber force.
3. giving me FULL benefit of the wide variety of meanings in the english language of which you are very skilled
a. would it be fair to for ME to LABEL your consideration of pursuing writing, considering whether you ought get more involved in church and considering whether you are reaching your full potential attempts to fill n the VERY LAST REMAINING HOLE in your life?
I know they think you are half drunk, but I don't honestly mind your questions...if I am being wholly foolish & stupidly vulnerable in answering them , so be it...
Answer...Yes it would be fair to suggest (not sure label is so great) that I have a hole that may yet need filled in my life...
I miss the fellowship at church..seeing some of those old friends but I don't believe like that anymore... ... I've never had a career in a society that now looks down on SAHM's... I think this sucks donkey but it's life ... do I/we need the money, not really... we're good. Does my husband care, No...I've always been enough..
DO I care... still trying to figure that out..
Do I feel a sense of fulfillment if /when I have helped someone -to lift their spirits, change negative thinking patterns, to see a clearer path in the darkness... it's awesome..I've always been a psychology enthusiast... it helped me stay sound... for one and overcome my own demons...
b. is ALL LOST including the message when some is speaking to you in a way that RECEIVES MORE ATTENTION THRU RUDENESS than others whim are more gentle
... NO.. I had a similar exchange with Cletus on this forum -he is more like you...in dealing with people...He also expressed he didn't like my style...
What's funny is...I explained to him...although you THINK I am all sunshine & rainbows... I have a capacity to be brutally honest myself.. bordering RUDE... my friends tell me I used to intimidate them, and lets just say My mouth has gotten me in some trouble over the years... I have learned some Tact and some Grace.. so do I understand people like you.. I do...and I'm not any Helen Steiner Rice either .. (if you even know who she is)... when I was younger, happy people annoyed me to...because my circumstances sucked...and I wanted better....
c. oh englishly skilled one…is there a meaningful difference between the following phrases that YOU CAN DISTINGUISH
In other words does "Filling an empty hole in your life" = "your life is empty"
You are trying to get one over on manticore, which I have alot of respect for ..not cause he has defended me very nicely here...but I just always resonate with every post he leaves... almost on any subject, I can't help but LIKE the guy!... I am sure when he said what he said, it was a slip of the tongue or keyboard in the moment... but Yes..I see a distinction between the 2...
I found THIS post below the most "prejudice"/ intolerant against colors, emoticons & the like so far...(you are definitely ONE UP I got this!).....but hey ...that is his/her opinion..(and I asked)....what I read in this post is...this person immediately judges a layout & associates it with naive stupidity... irregardless of it's content... Interesting..
To me when I see emoticons used to excess, pictures that aren't funny or a bunch of colors I know the content is frivalous and the person is new to computing. It's something I would expect from a teen girl.
