It’s time for another story about drunk Natalie. I haven’t told one in a while so why not? Okay, this one time when I was drunk, I found a number which was saved under ‘the best’, and I wasn’t sure who’s number it was, so I texted it, and the reply I got was a duplicate of the text I originally sent, so I sent another text, and the same thing happened again. Long story cut short, I started to get pissed off that this person was copying and pasting my text messages back to me, so I tried to have an argument with said person. I eventually realized that I was actually texting myself and ‘the best’ was actually me.

#TBT to that time Sharpy chirped Tazer through Kaner (because Jonny still doesn’t have his own Twitter account…)

I wanna get back to dating, courtship. I can’t date you through text messages. I wanna get back to Phone calls until the wee hours of the morning. Opening doors for me. Actually knocking on my front door when you arrive. Let’s go on a date. It could be a simple picnic or a trip to a museum because I’m a nerd, we could go for cheap pizza or hit up an arcade or go to a quiet lounge to hear some jazz music. Let’s go to church together, because Pastor gotta meet you anyway! Whatever just get me out of the house and engage me to the point where I don’t even care what’s happening on my cell phone. When we both stack enough, let’s go on a shopping spree together. Let me pick out some clothes for you and vice versa, I wanna know if Bae got taste. Let’s go on a road trip together, it really doesn’t matter where. Close or far, Let’s explore a new city, eat some food we’ve never tried before, I don’t care let’s just do something. Let’s do a painting class or Zumba, even karaoke night. Of course we’ll have those nights where we spend time in the house, maybe we’ll cook together, make ghetto gourmet popcorn and watch some Netflix, but our entire relationship cannot revolve around my bed and TV. I can’t get to know you like that, because we NOT gon talk through the movie! Guys these days act like they don’t know how to think outside the box. It doesn’t take much to please me or make me happy. But this here? This is just not working for me.

“My wife had four kids from a previous marriage. I had three. When we first got married, we had seven kids between us under the age of nine. My wife is a better stepmom than I’m a stepdad, but I’m getting better. I’m learning when to keep my mouth shut. Even though I’m super protective of my wife, if one of her children has a disagreement with her, I need to step back a bit. Ultimately I just want everyone to ‘buy in’ to the idea that we’re all on the same team, and that we’re all pulling for each other. Whenever it’s someone’s birthday, we’ll send a group text to all the kids, inviting them to the birthday dinner. It’s such a great feeling to get eight or nine text messages back, saying: ‘I’m in.’”

Messages getting eaten?

I realized after visiting a chat today and talking to a few users that this isn’t common knowledge, so have a #protip. If your post gets eaten on msparp, try doing CTRL+Z or CTRL+Y+Z (Replace CTRL with COMMAND for MAC users) and your message should get put back into your text input box. This method works across most browsers that I’ve seen, but I’m not too sure about those more obscure browsers. Anyways, happy RPING!

I matched with this guy and he started messaging me. He was really nice and we had a lot of stuff in common so he was really easy to talk to.
We exchanged messages for a few days until I gave him my number (I prefer texting to messaging on tinder).
We text back and forth getting to know more about each other and the more I found out about him the more I liked him. He had to be too good to be true? Where was the catch?
Well after a few more days of texting a lot, he asks me can he take me for dinner at the weekend and I agree, he then asks if he can add me on facebook and I didn’t see anything wrong with that so I agreed and got the friend request.
The next day we’re just chatting and I get a notification on facebook - he had changed his relationship status to in a relationship with me and it was asking me to confirm it. I quickly denied the request and text him asking what the hell? He then told me he loved me and was sorry that it was so fast but he had “fallen for me”.
I politely told him it was too fast and maybe he should think about throwing out the L word like that when we hadn’t even met. He told me I was a horrible person and proceeded to block me on everything and I haven’t heard from him again. 

To People who don't get texted back

You’re friendly. You’re trying to get to know someone. All of a sudden they read your message and never respond. Don’t think you did something wrong. You’re not the asshole. They are. They lost the opportunity to know someone who could’ve changed their life

Confession

You know how people brag about their lack of friends and their circle being oh so “small.” That’s my life right now and I can’t fathom why anyone would be proud of that.

I moved away from the States like two years ago to live in Europe, specifics are irrelevant. And now I’m really feeling so secluded. I go back home and I feel like I’m interrupted everyone’s else’s lives. My friends have new friends so why should I even come around. They don’t need me, not that I ever thought that they did but shit it still stings. My best friend has a new best friend and we don’t talk like we used to at all. Like a total of six messages then my ass can’t get a text back. I’m always late finding out shit, if anyone even care to tell me shit.

It’s people I’m cool with where I’m now too but not like friends friends. More like school friends. Outside of school, we don’t hangout or nothing. Partially, my fault. I get invites but I don’t go because it usually plays music I don’t like or can’t understand, everyone is talking in their native language and I’m standing with there with a beer I don’t like looking like boo boo the fool. Also I don’t go because its sometimes pity behind it. If you want to hangout, do because I’m cool and cute af, not because you think I’m sad at home, like now but that’s not the point.

Like how I’m feeling now is a rarity. It’s only because I want to really do stuff like go to a theme park, randomly visit London or go club hopping but I don’t have anyone I can call and say “bruh, lets go take a train to France because fuck it, why not” and they say “it’s two in morning. You can’t randomly think of shit like this. But whatever. I’m packing as we speak.” then I say “good look” then we in France for the the weekend. I just want to chill with someone my age who’s cool. No offense to my mom but I can’t point a girl ass with her or listen to Future during a road trip across the south east of the states with her.

Like if you understood how long it’s been since I had friends in a close proximity (three, four years because I moved before I moved) you’d be like why am I just feeling lonely. I’m just used to being alone. I like it until I don’t like then I get over it. But getting over this time is just the hardest right now. Shit is hard out here for the socially inept and the hermits of the world who don’t want to be the socially inept and the hermits of the world.

Whatever. I just needed to vent I guess.
