Women and the Internet

I believe that I have complained about this before, so please forgive me, although I believe that reading is voluntary!

So, I finished school several weeks ago, spent two weeks at my parents' house, helping with various projects, I was preparing for Annual Training with the National Guard when my father inexplicably passed away, so I am staying with my mother and helping her get her life together until she can sell the house and move down to the Valley.

I have commented on here multiple times that I like you guys more than my real friends. The friend that talks to me most writes atrociously, she rarely uses punctuation or capitalization, spells poorly, and often has other writing errors, and I frequently need to ask her to clarify what she wrote. She just acts angry and complains.

Sometimes, we have good conversations. I created a profile on a dating site to ask what to do up here and gotten some different women to talk to me, but it has been pretty frustrating.

I will complain more later, but please allow me to leave you with this, thanks to some Internet crazy:

Sorry for your loss.

I won't be much help otherwise—my wife left me for a doctor in 1975.

Wow.... Everyone has their problems. I had a friend who talked and wrote with a lyst. It sounded like he had a close pin attached to the end of his toung, but you can understand what he ment. I dont know why he wrote the same way. Either it was hardwire into his brain or he did it on purpose to make a point or something.

Buy this book. Read it, learn it, live it. It doesn't matter how old you or the women are, the principles are the same.

My condolences.

The bright side is there are women that are reasonable (mostly) and not too hard on the eyes. They are few and far between, and you are not likely to be working or have class with them, but they exist. Scouring the internet a good way to find compatible women.

Setting no limitations on location, it took me 10 years to meet my wife (on OKCupid). I even traveled to Colorado Springs, Atlanta, and Mexico City in my search. All were fun and positive adventures.

So sorry about your loss.
As for the rest of the original post, I don't follow you either.? I'm not understanding the disconnected subjects raised here.
Why are you friends with this person you don't understand and are annoyed by?
Why did you "join a dating site" to ask questions of something other than dating?
By the way, I met my wife on a dating site. She was the very first person I communicated with, the very first day I joined and we have been happily married for nearly 8 years now.

When interacting with women, it is important to remember they are really a completely different species. They think and act completely differently than men usually do. Passion, emotion, and intuition rule their decissions, not logic.
I have a formula for decission making when it involves a women. "Logic over-rules indifference, Passion over-rules logic."

Sorry for your loss of your Dad. As far as women, I don't consider myself an authority.
