Confessions

POST A CONFESSION

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 I have had coffee with four ladies, whose pictures were at least 20 years out of date ???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

I lost it

I am a man with multiple health issues that are very painful. I was hurting, tired, feeling ill and some woman decided to preach at me even though I asked her to stop. She got right in my face telling me I was going to hell and deserved it. Today was NOT the day to even consider that. I called her a hypocrite and asked if she had ever worked with dying people, I have, I asked her if she had tried helping homeless people, I have. I asked her if she had spent time with elderly shut ins who just needed someone to talk to. She said No to all of those, I lost it and said who in hell did she think she was telling strangers they were going to hell. I finally said I am not going to Hell I am in it now listening to her bullshit. I hate losing it but enough is enough. Keep your damn religious views to yourself and stop trying to push it on everyone. You chose your faith let me choose mine. And if it differs from yours, shut up, its none of your business! And leave people who are in pain alone.

I SAW YOU

Beautiful Smile on the 240

I didn't notice you until we were across the bridge where it was standing room only and...
