To the younger single Files Members....Dating in 2020

God bless and God Speed to you guys. I'm very fortunate that part of life is in the rearview mirror as I listen to my teenage nephews and twenty somethings I work with talk about dating today.

Unfortunate tales of dating apps, girls more pre-occupied with their phones than a guy on a date, facebook antics, and yes hyper polarity in politics. Ex-boy friends that are now "BFFs" and text while you are on dates with a gal is also something I can't wrap my head around. I'm sure they are more than BFFs.

Warning signs are abundant now...too many tatoos seem to be the order of the day, but this one screams run!..Hang in there guys:

Dude, I freaking can't believe the shit that's out there these days. Damn hog rings in noses, piercings, tats, stretched out ear lobes etc.

Was out for dinner with the woman one evening and noticed a young couple at the table across the aisle from where we were sitting. Both had their cellphones out, pecking away furiously, and not having a spoken word shared between them. Thought occurred to me that they may be having some serious phone sex later after the meal.

A summertime pleasure is to enjoy the city park down by the river and see the boaters and ships pass by. Last couple of years has been overrun by groups of young folks starring at their phones while chasing those Pokemon things on the screen. Youth of today totally reduced to unaware zombies. One can only wonder who they will vote into office.

That is one stupid bitch. I doubt she could last 5 minutes under genuine communist dictatorship, i.e.: Stalin would have that tattoo of Lenin flogged off of her. Mao would have her head chopped off for having a picture of Stalin.

Brother Bubacus: Did you post the at pic on Snugbus this morning?

Don't fuckin' ask me. I'm a millennial (barely) and I don't get a lot of the shit that's going on in today's culture, let alone dating. Maybe I should be glad that I dated a girl only once (we're still good friends, just not romantically involved) and I'm still a virgin, huh?

I think the media has fucked things up with dating and such. Yeah, it'd be nice to have like what Bella and Edward had in Twilight, but wishing for such perfection (if you can call it that) is an illusion and most of us don't get that.

Hell, I watched Eye Candy back in the day when it was on MTV for a bit, and that show kinda showed the fucked up side to modern dating. In my world doing what Jake did to Lindy on that show would be a damn good way to get your ass killed, either in self-defense, retaliation, or just sent to the state penitentiary and the express lane to the gallows or the firing squad. Yeah, I get that it was a teen/YA horror show based on a teen/YA novel by RL Stine, but for a PG-13 show it was creepy as ****, when you realize that shit could happen to someone in real life.

And I think I'm fucked up for thinking that certain things are attractive and also just wanting simple romance and companionship, not the whole ******* world.

L to R: Marx, Friedrich Engels, Lenin, Stalin. Let the Party begin.

No Trotsky. Probably in the kitchen getting ice.

That tattoo would look good on a lampshade

At least Mexican whores will keep their cell phones in their purse

It's not so bad in the 30+ range. This shit is out there don't get me wrong but real people exist too and are happy to have someone to talk to. They get better the further south you go.

Yes, I read and liked Twilight and watched the movies. At least once you read up on how Twilight vampires compare to traditional ones, they're actually bad ass compared to almost every other sub-species of vampire. Too bad that Twilight was YA/teen romance and not blood and guts action. And this is from someone who generally doesn't give a shit about pop culture most of the time. Because, well, most of it kinda sucks.

You'd probably argue that getting a $400 dollar 55 inch LG 4K TV is a waste for someone who actually doesn't watch a ton of TV. However, I love my You Tube videos (mostly gun and history stuff), I do have some stuff on Netflix, and I'm also as nearsighted as hell and tend to sit back from the TV (living room arrangement for watching TV kinds sucks), and I do watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans every year.

But yeah, I think that I'm fucked up looking at what's going on (though I should know the opposite is true). I want a girl who I can hang out with, talk to, be myself with and she can be the same with me. Not to mention that if they like getting their nails done I can do that as a bonus.

Well if there is an upside, at least the piercings, tats, weird hair, overt politics are easy to spot red flags so you don't waste time.

I actually don't have a big problem with tattoos and piercings, though I like it to be kept to sane levels and tats to have a meaning sentimental to the girl who has one. I don't like having politics rammed down my throat, though.

I can tolerate a lot of shit, but outright Fascist or Communist views don't really fly with me.

So, it is a great piece of art, despite the subject matter.

I would imagine some young twisted vet talking his way into the sack with this scumbag and opening more than just her mind. Talk about a grudge f69K.

This is nothing a belt sander won't fix.




Don't get me wrong, a properly executed and tasteful tattoo can be enhancing. I know several women who have them, a couple who have a sleeve, and the work fits their personalities and enhances their personal qualities. But on the obverse, women with too damn many piercings and jailhouse-looking tattoos just look trashy. One woman I grew up with used to be beautiful - until she fancied herself a tattoo artist for a while and used her body as a canvas. Ruined her looks. It was like taking a restored classic Corvette and slapping big rims, huge brushed aluminum letting, and fuzzy dice off the rear view mirror - just trashy.

On a related note, a good friend of mine who foresaw the vaping/CBD craze coming a few years ago and got into it early enough to make money is now looking to open a tattoo removal office. His logic is there's a glut of dumbass young people who got tattoos at an early age and while it might've been a great idea then, it's a problem now. And that's where he comes in - for a price.

I was rowing last summer, and a very attractive big boobed hispanic or black woman, mid 50's started hitting on me. Said she was from Puerto Rico.
She had a skinny partner who also has big boobs but who cannot speak English.

WTF?

Was she nuts? I have no interest today in a relationship. She is outta my league anyway. I have to stick to the "70 somethings", and I aint interested.

Anyway, she pestered me for about a month, flashing those big knockers on a slim frame, before she disappeared entirely from the scene.

She wanted directions, or for ME to take her to the Syracuse airport to pick "something" up; She also pestered another guy in front of me for the same thing, as if I would respond with the directions again. WTF??? SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT HERE, especially her interest in me.

Too much mystery for me about her real intentions.

If it is too good to be true and has big boobs,......RUN.

Oh yeah, I did see her dressed in a fake, or an Auxillary Police cop uniform one day entering the "Y".

WTF??

I guess I am a target of some sort, from the Deep State. I wonder why?
Big Boobs can always get you into trouble, or dead.

Going rate for a green card marriage is 25k. You may have missed out on cash and some fun.

There is a well endowed lady at work, in another department. We have been circling each other for years, negotiating but have never “closed the deal” so to speak. She is bright and funny, but really pisses me off sometimes and I see a deep mean streak (think Praying Mantis). But then I think about those giant breasts and I get drawn back in.
