Confessions

POST A CONFESSION

Real Advice

My advice to any attractive woman who is perpetually single is to look inwards rather than outwards with regards to blame for why you are single. You have to lower your expectations and accept what life gives you. Your future may not have a Prince Charming but may have someone who works in construction or a bakery. Life is what you make of it and if you are to be single or married the onus is on you and you alone to make it happen.

I was not expecting all the good stuff

That came along with sobriety. I’ve been sober for about 9 months now after decades of addiction problems. I feel so much better physically and especially mentally, and along with that came self confidence that I haven’t had in years. Aced a job interview and got a great job that I wanted, met an awesome lady and received some unexpected great financial news. This sober lifestyle really agrees with me! Very thankful and grateful!

Bike lanes

Why did we build them if cyclists continue to skirt them and ride on the road or sidewalk? They are specifically for you! You don't see cars avoiding the roads paved for them...

Dog People

I've never gotten along. Maybe it's the pack mentality or the need to control something w/ hierarchy as pet Owner. I'm not sure. But cats and cat people are so much better.

Internet singles match making

I ventured forth and posted my self on a dating site for post 60 yrs. My profile was painfully honest, although my picture was 6 years old. I have had coffee with four ladies, whose pictures were at least 20 years out of date ??? Nice ladies but everyone was obsessed with bucket list world travel desires...and also an obsession with yoga or "adventure sports" What happened to honesty and realistic expectations ? I guess I will stick to the library or a seniors club to meet someone, who is up front..honest.

Strip Clubs

Women always get so weird about them! Why? I'm the only one of my friends who is genuinely cool with my guy going to a strip club occasionally. And it's not just to be the 'cool' wife, it's just harmless. He tells me all about it after, he's not getting dances all the time, and he's not the weirdo showing up in sweatpants, and not getting off in those sweatpants, and he comes home to me ready to go. Thanks ladies! I mean, I do always start a conversation about whether they seemed to like their job or not, and ask how he would feel if they didn't - because, morally, I have huge issues if that's the case and think he should, too - but otherwise, there are worse things he could be doing, amiright?

Regrets

The worst thing I’ve ever done in my life is give a fuck what other people think of me.

From France to Vancouver

I moved to Vancouver over a year ago for work as there are more opportunities in Canada for a young working profession. I did not understand the dating culture here. My friends at work have a list of probably 20 items for a man. I keep on telling them that no man can meet that criteria and you must love with your heart and not your eyes. I do not understand why a mans job is so important and is often number one on the list. I could marry a baker or even a grocer if he loved me with all his being. You must love with your heart and not your eyes and no list can ever compare to this.

Saving $$ + losing lbs

I confess I feel great! Vowed in April to stop buying monthly passes and to walk or cycle everywhere I can, and also since July have stopped eating Tim Hortons and other fast food... and it’s fantastic. Losing weight and spending less never felt so good. Fuck you translink but thank you also for your shitty service pushing me to be healthier. So always look on the bright side folks <3
