I was only seriously wrong so far about SMS. The rest of the people, roughly or in some cases even precisely, matched what I call after Matrix, a residual image so it's not that bad at all. I am talking mostly about physical appearance. With the mental image nothing shocking neither. This small piece of reality we're in during the gatherings is not really that far away from this forum anyway. I guess, it is just a pretty mature group of people so they don't act differently regardless VR or RL.

I can't imagine Lynx being other than bounteous, and entirely fragrant.

I'm sorry you're going through a tough time. I remember you also mentioned you lost a friend recently, and that might have made things tougher.

The tough thing about being outside is that (at least for me) it doesn't improve my mood because it's just too hot and uncomfortable. Working out indoors is more preferable, but everyone is different.

Have you sought professional counseling? There are people on this board who will give you advice and I'm sure they mean well, but most are probably not trained.

If you think it's age-related, it could be menopause or andropause (male menopause). Maybe blood work could be done to measure hormone levels. If off, medication could maybe help the situation.

Hopefully things improve for you soon.

zzm9980 (and Hannierro) thought I was a dude.

Your opinion will be the next wrong one.

50 is the new 40! LOL I will hit the big Hawai Five-Oh at end of this year and really looking forward to it. Chums are flying in from around the world, should be a real laugh.

There was a huge question mark a few years back if I would make to this milestone. ( Touch wood, I don't want to temp fate as I still have another month to go!)

If life was a smooth run then it would be seriously dull, like a good book or a movie, you have the whole emotional roller coaster that makes it worth watching or reading.

I always look at the low points in life as a great tool to build up the mood for another surprise, could be bad could be good, but whatever it is I look forward to the twist and turns that gets chucked at me.

I never plan for the future as there are so many variable that can change things. My life now is nothing like what I was expecting 20 years ago, and in 20 years time will probably so different from now its not worth thinking about.

Today I'm a little depressed, worried about my job and generally thinking it's all down hill.
Well, I'm not that depressed (not at that level yet), but I'm worrying about the job as well. Meanwhile, on the other side, a friend of mine quit from her job just to pamper herself in Europe for 2 months. Ah, life... :roll:

Apologies Lynx, no mal-intent. Sometimes I open up all the notified live-topics in multiple separate browser tabs, and then go through them one by one. It's looks like I accidentally posted into the wrong topic ... I was referring to the next forum meet-up.

In all fairness I thought you were a dude too for awhile. Very manly posting style.

And now the Lynx has a dilemma. Other women are preparing utensils to eat you alive.

I can tell the woman by the levels of aggression and dynamics in response but certainly none of the above. Zillions of illogical, impractical and partial men around.

I find some Malay women, especially scarfies, over-compensate for their ''''required meekness, and submission to God'''' by being absolute bitches.

[PLEASE BE CLEAR THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ***NOTHING TO DO WITH LYNX**** who I have never met, nor any individual on this forum, the chat just sparked the thought.]. This is about my very very extended family.... ok.

I've been chewed out a few times by NYC wimmin, but Malay-scarfies? Ffff, some of the most shockingly and gratuitously rude people I'd met.

Then you have the weird dichotomy of the charming, male host and his bitch-harridan wife....


funny old world.
