You should hear the excuses. :aiyo:


Tell me about it...

I'm on my period.
I'm married.
I'm pregnant.
My husband is working from home today.
I have AIDS.
I don't want to get AIDS.
I think you dialed the wrong number.
You still owe me for the last time.
I thought that was forbidden for a Jedi.
The restraining order is still in effect.
My daughter will divorce you if she finds out.
Oink Oink Weee!

After 10 years of marriage, I consider myself an expert in one particular Taiwanese woman, but my understanding is that there is more than one kind.

If this is not just trolling, then my advice is to listen to "Let it go" until you can sing along with it.

But it is theoretically possible to force a man to marry you. Check out this happy Indian couple: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235 ... irlfriend/

On the Brink, religious compatibility is important. Imagine if you recognized the waliyyat of Hz. 'Ali ibn Abi-Talib, while your lover considered him merely the fourth "rightly-guided" caliph. You'd have to fight each other. Or what if one of you was a lapsed Catholic, and the other a psycho xiaojie with a poor grasp of reality.

To clarify, are you saying Christianity is superior or just that you don't like doing their superstition vs. yours?


Great loaded question. :no-no: Not going to go into with every person that wants to bait me into this debate with the premise they are "superstitions"

I had to bow to the family altar during our wedding, but I figured "France is worth a mass."

No. Every day's a crap shoot.

Burning paper money isn't a superstition? I hope you feel the same way about the power of prayer.

I've been with a woman so convinced that she's complex, it actually gets in the way of understanding more about her.

She says things like, "Oh, you wouldn't understand. It's just the tip of the iceberg." Then, she becomes very guarded once I try to pry these "deep, secret feelings" out of her. But, once I coax them out, I learn that it's a bunch of nonsense, just a mishmash of personal biases and delusions.

It's not made any better by talking with other women about it. "Oh, I think I'm that way, too." No shit! Four women who all think the same way, and who see it as some deep personal fact about themselves? Color me surprised at how unique someone can convince herself she is with a survey sample of one.

There are challenging differences between men and women that are worth noting (like having a more justice-centered vs. care-centered moral psychology), but there's also a difference between not letting others get to know you and that you being too deep or complex for others to "understand" it.

Same here. It's frustrating if you're putting a lot of effort into a relationship, but your significant other puts up barriers like at the drop of a pen. Then you find out there's no barrier at all, they're just being dramatic and self-absorbed. Slowly learning to avoid people who exhibit that behavior early on. It can be kind of cute in small doses, but considering communication is so crucial to a healthy relationship that's a huge red flag.
