Like if a guy is a world class jazz saxophonist who makes 65K a year (a reality) married to a anesthesiologist making 300K? Not a big problem. Guy is successful, maybe even HARDER working, and has his own $. And a lot of people who make a lot of $ don't actually care that much about $, but work ethic is different.

In terms of intelligence, why would you want somebody who is smarter than you? It wouldn't work out well.

If you like to sit on the couch on Saturdays, then you should date someone who does that.
Hello,

I cannot put you on ignore list, so please, be so kind and put me instead. I do not like how you think at all.

Thank you.

Thank you thank you very much!!

yes, I agree but also... I am a bit of a romantic person, and I kinda like to do things for others, provided they are kinda worthy of this attitude, able to appreciate efforts put to them and do not mistake it for submissiveness.

Hope you get the drift

But you are very right, in long terms, I am trying to grow as a person, and so I do this for my personal improvement

I would say it is important thing to be a direct person about who you are and what you want and not be afraid of failure. One's true personality is next to impossible to change. You can change your behavior in some things, but you cannot change your inner self or your genetics so as to impress these "cool" women.

Therein lies the wisdom of knowing that difference.
that... is one of the wisest ideas I heard. yes... I need to think of that... a lot.

Thank you!!

But suddenly you feel your own weaknesses, your imperfections and you start to be concerned about them... Because that person is simply so strong, stronger than you. More... majestic.

You wanna change it. Right now you ate shaking squirrel and you wanna turn into sturdy oak.

If you get my drift...

OK, let us have some fun. Let's see what the reactions gonna be

(and yeah, this is a real life problem for me. No fantasy )

depends on who we talk about, what "weirdos". Maybe they are weirdos to you. Perhaps you are dull loser to them?

Just a thought.

actually, yes it will. This is the beautiful part... I did! I am doing better than anytime before in my life... Because of this inspiration.

Yes, the work is actually needed. But person can break. What you need is strength. These people give you the strength. rest is up to you.

You should therefore strive to just be yourself and seek out others who are being themselves and stop worrying so much about what all of the fake people are doing.

agree, but at the same time, you should always try to better yourself... and maybe think of these things a bit more deeply.

I say you're doing something right, even if the motive is something we find unusual.

I congratulate anyone who has made huge achievements and are happy with what they have achieved. I am inspired and impressed with anyone who makes life work for them.

Keep growing.
Man, I just read this reply now.

Thank you!!!

You don't know how I appreciate this.

... I don't do this to... brag or to bluntly impress people, but I am sure more than happy to find similar minded individuals!!

Thanks a lot, pal!
