There wasn't much left off that list. That being said, I only had 13, but that is due to a lack of ambition. I like how they had "bitter people" on the sign, when the whole sign reeks of bitterness.

Rudy1962 comments on Feb 1, 2018:
I don't have any advice on dating. However, it's interesting you get accused of being a Trump supporter for not being "a hard left liberal.". I suppose I could be classified as "a hard left liberal" and I have been accused of being a Trump supporter for complaining about the Democratic Party.. You don't like the DNC? You must be a Trump supporter. "There are only two sides and you're either with us or with them" mentality.

Rudy1962 comments on Jan 31, 2018:
I also love the quality of discussion here, and the wisdom in this post. I have a Master's Degree and had been in my line of work for many years, when I was put in a position where I had to work in a factory. At the job we had to tear down the machinery and put it back together when we cleaned "the line". I have never been mechanical and felt like the stupidest person in the place, and the only one with a degree. I had a friend in college who probably would have scored in the "MENSA range" on an IQ test. However, he was the most miserable son of a bitch I knew, and his social skills were next to none. My children outsmart me everyday. There are many types of intelligence.

THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKING
Rudy1962 comments on Jan 29, 2018:
The most per mile walking I did was 70 miles in 2 days. It was on the Ice Age trail in southern, WI. I hiked from the trail head to a hotel in Whitewater. I then spent the night in a hotel that had a hot tub. The next day I walked the 35 miles back to my car. The hotel clerk was confused by the fact I did not have a car. It was cool because I did not have to carry more than a day pack. I later backpacked on the Appalachian Trail for a month. I planned on going the entire way from Georgia to Maine. I hopped off the trail in Tennessee to try again with an ex girlfriend. I still regret that decision. My last name is Rudolph, and it was during the time authorities were looking for Erik Rudolph, the Unabomber. I got some looks when I told people my last name. Hiking the Appalachian Trail was more of a social event than I predicted.

Dear Grouchy Feminists (Not all feminists. Just the grouchy ones.) Please don't take my chivalry ...
Rudy1962 comments on Jan 29, 2018:
I figured this all out awhile ago. I remember times, like in traffic if I gave the right away to a man he'd always give me a nod or a wave but women often didn't acknowledge the gesture at all. Once I was fishing and I tried to ask this woman about the fishing, and she just simply didn't respond at all. It made me angry, but based on things I actually heard since those days, evidently it is because they get too much unsolicited attention by aggressive guys.... so at times they decide it's better to appear rude than chance giving someone "an in" to unwanted and awkward advances.
Transgender and Bathrooms
Rudy1962 comments on Jan 29, 2018:
I don't know but my guess is it has to do with the many sexual hangups humanity has. Boobs in public are great for trying to sell us stuff, but boobs in public to feed a child? Unacceptable. I was once at a concert and the line was so long for the women's restroom, they started using the men's. Nobody made a big deal of it.

Rudy1962 comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Ok. What if I change it to this, "Don't go into a relationship being an unhappy person, with the expectation that now that you have a soul mate they will make you happy.". They probably will for awhile, but it won't last. Often that is when problems start between people. Or don't go into a relationship feeling broken or not "whole", with the expectation that person will fix you or "complete you". On the other side of that, don't find a broken person with the expectation that you are going to fix them. As a therapist, the above mentioned situations do keep me in business, but I could find another line of work.

Is being an atheist important?

It does get old. Religious people feel free to openly express their beliefs. However, if someone says they don't believe in God, they are considered rude and aggressive. Oh yah, or a militant Atheist. People think they are open minded by saying "I accept you're an atheist, but don't go around talking about it. It will offend people.". However, if they say they will pray for us, "Well they are just trying to be nice Not trying to offend you."

Well I wouldn't say we have no one. We always have ourselves, always, so I've worked hard at getting along with myself. The only one we are guaranteed to be with our entire life is ourselves. That being said, I ain't proud of it, but looking back I can't deny there has always been a shallow side to my choices in relationships. Don't worry. I paid for those "sins". I have minor children now, their mother can be difficult, so my focus is on them now.

Rudy1962 comments on Jan 27, 2018:
I get what you are saying. I also did take in the comments of it being a first world problem. What can really be mentally imprisoning, and cast a dark cloud over one's serenity, is getting yourself in so much debt that there is no way out of it. My ex was a spend thrift, and I remember day after day thinking of the debt we acquired and the money we owed. I would think about it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Bankruptcy was a relief. We divorced soon after that. Other than my car, I have sworn off using credit for anything. I just live in a cheap apartment now and do not buy anything unless I can pay cash. I sleep better at night.

Watch children. Kids just let their emotions run through them...They can be crying and hate you one minute and the next minute they are hugging you and calling you the best daddy in the world. I'm not saying we should be exactly like kids, but we lose something when we become adults and have learned to shut down, or at the very least learned to not express, our negative emotions. I'm not offering a clear cut answer but rather an observation. When we begin to learn how to "behave" that is when the neurosis starts to set in..

Frustrated
Rudy1962 comments on Jan 25, 2018:
The old "fight or flight' mechanism us humans have was useful, even necessary, when we were in a daily battle to stay alive. In dealing with modern day human interactions, it is usually harmful. I'm pretty sure over 99 percent of us have been there, wanting to calmly make our case, but that uncomfortable surge of anxiety gets in our way. The more I live the more I believe meditation and practicing mindfulness is the most helpful way to work on overcoming it.

Rudy1962 comments on Jan 24, 2018:
Ok. I have one life event that still baffles me. I was working as a case manager for people with major mental illnesses. A friend of mine, who was also a case manager for the same agency, had a client who died. Anyway, I was helping him clean our that client's apartment. When the client was alive he was always playing the flute. The clients flute was on the table while we were moving the furniture out of the apartment. I remember we were moving the sofa when a very distinct sound/note came out of the flute. We both stopped and looked at each other. We both had a surprised look on our faces. Then another resident of the apartment complex came bouncing down the stairs. We had the door open while moving his possessions. She just nonchalantly said, "Oh that's just David." Then she just went on her way. The problem was I shared the experience with two other people, which rules out my imagination. My best bet is a gust of wind blew through the flute. However, it is why I'm only 90 percent an atheist - rather that 99.9 percent.
