All I know, is that I see colours within a colour or surrounding an object.

Are you calling me a predator Surreptitious75? :lol:

I'm not good with bright lights or sunlight.. never have been, and wonder if this is part of the condition. Google says..?

There's something to be said for arranged marriage here.. not marriage by force, but more a match-making of sorts.

Some events companies hold mixers.. disguised as networking drinks, but at least they make it easier to meet someone with the option to date.

Sounds a bit depressing to be honest.

Lol.. I've been to some fun parties over the years, but I did go with friends, so that might be why.. it might not have been so much, if I had gone alone.

You can't meet anyone if you don't go out.. as they say.

I work most evenings, which can be a bit of a problem.

You could fit something in around your schedule.. every time I've gone to go out lately, it's rained, which dampened my mood to go out.. literally lol.

I try. I've been to a number of festivals when I have time off, for example. Often camping, which I really enjoy.

You do not have to go out anymore to just meet someone because the whole world is at your fingertips
Now one cannot guarantee success but in terms of sheer quantity there has never been so much choice
Though eventually you need to meet someone in the flesh but just not straight away unless you want to

I've spoken to quite a lot of nutters online, so it's definitely not my preferred option.

I am not sure that the odds on meeting fewer of them in real life are actually any more favourable
So you take a risk either way or else remain single forever but that is a decision only you can make

Better to find someone through a common network or social circle, then you may know a little about each other.. at the very least, which is a better starting-point than not.

The only thing left is to hope 'the feeling is mutual' as there's nothing worse than a one-sided attraction.

Meeting someone is the easy part, meeting someone you like.. not so much.

Kinda sounded like it, not having children is basically Extinction, loss of pride and self-worth.

..that would be telling lol, but seeing that colour chart really was appeasing to the senses. My bro only saw one shade of red in an apple I was buying, whereas I saw many reds.. he thought I was odd, in my awe of it. :lol:

Philosophy.. making us do crazy things in public, that the average person would never do! Same with Art.. Art made me do it, I swear.. but I never cared, if they didn't care, for the wherefores of why.
