    Only for a short while...I know :lol:

    I dated a girl a couple years ago who was a total nut job. We had fun together, but she had a lot of emotional baggage to say the least. I ended up leaving her because of her severe lack of empathy.

    Just had a video date with someone who had the personality of a wet noodle. When I asked her if she'd picked up any quarantine hobbies she showed me some knitting she'd done. That seems like a reasonable hobby and I expressed interest. I said I play guitar and showed one of mine. She followed that up by stating "Yeah, but I don't know anything about guitars." I should've went with my gut and replied by informing her that I don't know shit about knitting either but we're trying to get to know each other right now.

    Hard pass. Not just for that. I had to carry 90% of the conversation.

    Well as a sort of second story on that theme I've been talking to someone at home I used to know pretty well and we have a great vibe going, I told her I thought she was really attractive but we're too good of friends and she totally agreed. We hung out just recently and I forgot how aggressive she is, fabulous person and a fun time to hang with but just the intensity was so overwhelming. We had a bunch of conversations and she has major skeletons in the closet too that we talked out and it's better I didn't try and get more involved since it probably would've been way too much for how stressed and beat up I am from work at this point. Fantastic time but I could not be around her all day. It was a good call.

    just so much energy, we were yelling half the time when stuff got heated and it was a ton of fun but she's really loud and in your face which is refreshing from a lot of people I know, not talking over me, but still it was a lot to handle, we talked over a lot of things in such a short period of time too and with how fried my brain gets after work and especially during the semester I don't think I'd be able to keep up with her

    plus when she gets worked up about something it's a little hard to get her calmed back down and that's nothing I want to deal with, it's only with casual stuff but I think it would be really hard to relax completely around her

    You really should have gone with that. You'd certainly learn something - like whether or not she can handle playful criticism.

    That would have been the correct answer:lol:.

    Now imagine she wanted to hear you playing something and at the end replied with: "man, your tone sucks".

    My GF knitted me a winter hat for Christmas. It's so nice I thought she lied to me and bought it :lol: Apparently she's pretty legit, like sells her patterns on the internet good.

    Be REAL careful with that. I married one of those girls and had a kid with her. I thought that because I knew her and we had been friends for nearly 20 years somehow I would not be subject to the same chaos. I was wrong.

    Well that's a shame on you for not realizing the "fun" of them doesn't include MARRIAGE

    Um....that's on you, baby. You saw all the signs that the lion pit was ahead and you climbed the fence and jumped in. Your mauling is your fault.
