The Slow Lane

Why is the slow lane completely ignored in BC? In Washington state or Alberta people move the the slow lane...in BC nope. What gives?

Perfume

I have no clue why women feel the need to bathe themselves in a cloud of stink. I honestly don’t know which is worse men’s BO, cigarette smoke or that nasty crap women need to coat on themselves. It’s not just perfume but stinky hand lotions, aroma “therapy” or whatever other stink cloud they torture us with. Here is a tip, soap water and a mild deodorant. If you have to .... LESS is MORE.

8th grade dance and dating

I think it's time to finally throw in the towel with dating. I do not want to hook up, and can't meet anyone decent here let alone a good person that wants a relationship. Most people I know are in a relationship, and it's tough being the single one. I'm lonely and so sick of it, and wish I could just be okay on my own and not hurt. I feel like a leper not even getting approached by guys, but that's Vancouver. Friends say I'm attractive, nice etc. but if I were, wouldn't I at least be hit on occasionally? Yes, I have tried approaching guys too, but would like to see some effort and have stopped trying. When I've been approached or hit it off with someone, they never are from here..... Such a cold, lonely city. It's like all of the guys and girls are at a school dance on either side of the room and no one makes a move. I've tried meetups just to get out more to meet new people in general because my friends are busy with their partners, having families etc. and don't get together with friends as often. I just would like to at least meet new people to do things with that don't involve clubbing, but here I am at home again. Meetups are limited and often have waitlists too. I'd like to do certain hobbies, but am limited financially. I just want to at least have fun things to do on the weekend with people, but damn it's hard for the preceding reasons . I'm open to suggestions, and advice. At least if I'm busy doing something fun, I don't have to think about meeting someone and just have fun.

I'm intrigued

As to why the Google, "Vancouver News" page in Canada, shows council news from Vancouver Washington.Do ya think those Whiz kids who dream up the algorithms know there is a difference? I know that some Americans showed up in Vancouver, Washington for the Winter Olympics when it was here. Mind you, not many of them are too good at geography down there (especially the politicians)

WTF is up with the Right Hand turn lane?

Don't know what's more irritating: the idiots that sit in the RHL waiting for 'permission' to turn right (or alternatively: STOP texting, maybe?), or the idiots behind them that lean on the horn because they're too damn important to wait another few seconds.... 3:12 am? No worries, just lean on that horn that sounds like a train.

Georgia St.

I remember bike couriers. Lots of them.

Shut out

You let me back in only to block off parts of you again. It hurts all over again seeing you and then being totally shutdown. Why did you bother?

How nice.

People who listen so easily to others. Who can't think for themselves. Who get 'life coaching' and just toss the ones they supposedly love aside. Wish I could care as little as those people. How nice it must feel to just walk away. To not follow through. To not stick it out. To not do what you promised. How nice for you.

Your gift

You made me a beautiful Valentine's Day card. Hand painted. Wrote me a poem from scratch. I woke up early to cook you French toast before I went to work, your favourite. I left flowers and a bag of treats on the table I had smuggled in the night before. But your card was the most beautiful thing I've ever received. I love you

Bus Harassment

To the lady on the bus tonight that got harassed by that douche, just wanted to say good job for sticking up for yourself, reaching out, and asking for help. Especially when he followed you. Not many women are able to do that, and they really, really should. You should be proud of yourself. I want you to know in no uncertain terms that if he put hands on you, I would've intervened. To all the women out there, if a guy is making you feel threatened or uncomfortable, please make it very public and ask for help, even from bystanders/strangers. These creeps thrive on isolation and getting their victims to stay silent. It's what they want. So don't give em that. Always always always trust your gut, even if he seems 'nice' or well dressed. Let's empower women to speak up and ask for help, so maybe Vancouver starts to feel like a safer place. It's bad enough already without crap like this being properly dealt with.

Sorry not sorry

All the confessions and posts running more than a few short, to the point paragraphs get glossed over. You simply lose any interest I had.

Tru

If I become HIV+, it will be my own fault. I hope it's not too late.

Seriously , Guys?

It's like you have to go all the way to the Internet Cafe or something to answer Yes or No to an email.

Table Manners

She dumped me fair and square, I don't see why she still expects me to buy her dinner.

I SAW YOU

Saturday evening on the Skytrain

I saw you on the Skytrain, you sat across me. You were wearing black clothes and shoes. I looked...
