My natal chart is in my profile photos.

I'm very impressed with your perfect use formatted paragraphs. But anyways, recognize this for what it is, a crush. He could be representative of your need for others that can take his place. For now, he is unavailable, which in a sense can make him more attractive, "safer," in a sense. Maybe you are subconsciously ready for something more daring.
True, though I'd say masochism more than narcisism, but I'm sure we're not here to argue semantics. Some people have to learn the hard way or worse, havent been exposed to something good.

Edit: I don't have trouble connecting with people in general. I'm very good at connecting with people irl, it's that I have trouble connecting with uber religious people.


Do you want to connect with uber religious people? It's ok if you dont connect with EVERYONE. That is the beauty of living, to choose who you want to associate with and who you dont.
Will do. Good luck

How crappy are we talkin?


They've slept with your s.o. while you were together, they've lied to other people about you and treat their kids like crap.

I've kept crappy friends around, but not THAT crappy. You are doing yourself a favor by being lonely, in this case.

Is that a common trait or just depends on other placements? My best friend of TEN years will punish me by not talking to me and completely ignoring me for DAYS if she’s upset with me, she won’t even tell me.

She asked me for my honest opinion about something and I answered all honestly and then she didn’t like my answer and stopped talking to me.

A week later she sends me freaking out about how I don’t care saying “I thought we WERE friends.”

Any tips on how to handle this?


I will deal with this for a short amount of time then I will end the friendship. You dont have to formally end it, you can just make other friends and let it die it's natural death.

I've had enough of MeToo 'hashtag feminism' and its intellectual laziness

You’ve heard a lot of these stories since the Harvey Weinstein harassment claims hit the news. And you’re about to hear a lot more. Since the weekend, women the internet over have begun posting under the #metoo hashtag and – like the fury over Weinstein’s misdemeanours – this "movement" is only gathering force.

“Me too” refers to sexual harassment. It is intended to demonstrate just how widespread this aspect of female experience is.

I've had enough of MeToo 'hashtag feminism' and its intellectual laziness
ZOE STRIMPEL

I was walking home from the station last night – lost in my phone – when…you can tell what’s coming, right? A tale of male predation, in which some bloke did something threatening/inappropriate/disgusting to me.

You’ve heard a lot of these stories since the Harvey Weinstein harassment claims hit the news. And you’re about to hear a lot more. Since the weekend, women the internet over have begun posting under the #metoo hashtag and – like the fury over Weinstein’s misdemeanours – this "movement" is only gathering force.

The inescapable whiff oozing off all this is that women are, fundamentally and essentially, victims
“Me too” refers to sexual harassment. It is intended to demonstrate just how widespread this aspect of female experience is. It is also intended to galvanise as many women as possible to “speak out”, to “tell their stories” – curiously dated phrases that echo the consciousness-raising lingo of the 1970s feminist movement.

Except that unlike the Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1970s, this is just hashtag feminism. It’s full of grievance but utterly lacking in solutions or even ideas.

Whereas the likes of Gloria Steinem and Susan Brownmiller – the latter responsible for getting rape laws changed in the US with her unstinting history Against Our Will – were out tirelessly altering centuries-old structures of rank discrimination, women today just need to tell a personal sexual horror story tagged with a catchphrase plucked from an ever-shifting, ever-more-banal lexicon of "solidarity".

So I won’t be joining the #metoo movement. My Facebook and Twitter accounts remain free of all mention of sexual harassment. Instead of “Me too?”, try “not me, sorry folks” on for size. Why this outrageous, socially almost criminal recalcitrance?

First, I’m sick to death of hashtag feminism (and, indeed, hashtag a lot of things). It lacks the intellectual coherence put in place by our femininist foremothers in the 1970s and 80s. It is obsessed with sex and objectification rather than other forms of discrimination. And it doesn’t make the kind of arguments that would actually persuade those who most need the persuasion.

By contrast, men who read, for instance, Brownmiller’s scholarly yet gripping Against Our Will emerged with a whole new arsenal of ideas about gender and humankind at the end. No amount of divisive hashtagging will achieve this. It just validates and entrenches a bitter rhetoric that pits women against men in a way that seems to be merely regressive rather than effective.

#Metoo and its ilk are also futile – who exactly are these hashtags for? Seems to me this is yet another example of indignant performativity preached exclusively through tweets and posts and video clips to the converted rather than through ideas or action that might reach those beyond.

Would the man who appeared in the shadows last night as I walked back from the station (no: I won’t tell you what he said) be impressed by the #metoo movement? He probably hasn’t heard of it.

Nor do I like the inescapable whiff oozing off all this that women are, fundamentally and essentially, victims. Post-Weinstein scandal, it feels as though women are embracing a notion of ourselves in which we are bound by our own biology and men’s biological drives to be perpetually on the receiving end.

#Metoo is underpinned ideologically, if it can be said to contain any ideas at all, by the idea of ubiquity. It is meant to shock by showing how widespread the problem is. The implication? Women the world over are victims. But while sexual harassment and far more seriously, sexual assault, is hugely widespread, there is more to life, to womanhood, and to relationships between the sexes, than that.

I don’t like the way hashtags divide people into “Righteous and Aggrieved” and everyone else
I can’t help it. I just don’t like the way hashtag “movements” divide people into “Righteous and Aggrieved” and everyone else.

In this case, are women who strongly feel their lives have not been marred by sexual harassment or even those – gasp – who think there are worse things in the world than lewd comments by randoms or ill-conceived come-ons by older, fatter male bosses, allowed to speak?

What about the women who secretly enjoy unlooked-for attention – including catcalls? And what of the women who find it funny, and snicker, when a man does something sexually inappropriate?

What about women who just cannot remember the last time a man harassed them? What about those who, perhaps overweight, perhaps handicapped, perhaps just not attractive according to the norms of the day, feel painfully invisible, rather than preyed upon?

Are these women also allowed to “speak out”? I’m not sure.

Yes: too many men behave badly towards women because of sex. But hashtag feminism is not the answer. So, until we come up with something more substantive, I’m afraid it’ll be a “no thanks” from me.

Never introduce yourself as "Harvey Weinstein" even as a joke.

Say you're dating and her sign is compatible. Are you encouraged by this or doesn't affect you.
Say her sign is incompatible. Do you keep dating or forget about it?

In my experience, I managed to have long-lasting relationship with only one sign. Not that I am not giving other signs a chance, but they fail to keep me entertained and intrigued in the long run, or are just straight incompatible to boot.


I take signs into consideration. I am more hesitant with some and more lenient with others but ultimately will give a chance of some sort to everyone that I am attracted to.
