I make plenty of interpretation errors - and I'm pleased when I do because it is an opportunity to learn and augment what I know is true. I'd be the last person to say I'm perfect. And on a message board the best I can do on a general topic with all sorts of people is to give my general opinion. Of course you are going to have circumstances which are at variance with what I have come to see as behaviour which roughly encompasses a situation I try to depict.
I can relate of course, but if you didn't notice, what you took as attacking you at first, I was only mimicing you, by making assumptions of your preferences to have multiple women in your life, but, that was after your assumptions of my willingness to date an older man, which I took kindly too. Just because I have, and would, date a much older man, does not mean I am not up to par in areas of my life, because that is not to say I wouldn't date someone my age, someone a bit younger, etc etc. But I do know I do not like push over men, and if you haven't noticed, I have a bit of a strong personality, and I do not aspire to be a dominant figure in a relationship. Oh and again, your evaluations of behavior into physical situations etc are still amusing and very right at times, I would say....the more we practice the better we become, and you seem to be pretty fearless of conveying your opinions at times, thats awesome.
* I'm probably half-way a nutter!
I don't do anything I'm interested in by halves. I go to the extremes every time. I would wilt and die if I had to live in a city with people I was expected to socialise with... this island life suits me. I stay up too late, I drive/ride too fast, I work too hard and I play too hard. - But I get everything I'm responsible for - done, and I'm my own boss. One things absolutely certain and that's that when I go, it'll be due to being broken, not worn out or rusted.
... And I am not completely sure why my wife puts up with me, but she won't let me go, and I've given up trying to divorce her.
hmmm not much to say on all that, but its interesting.
* Happy? I can't say - it's all relative. I think just about everyone is envious of what I've done for myself, but y'know ... I'm always sure I can do better.
I am very self-critical.
I'm self critical as well. And to others, I'm sure most would not view either one of us as self critical.
* It's OK. ... It's just that I'm the sensitive sort. I love talking about myself (who doesn't?) - but it really annoys me when people try to knock you down for no apparent reason other than they just think your perch is set too high. - I'm just saying things as I see them. Of course it's not all a bed of roses ... but that's for another topic, maybe?
I am seriously impressed by you mael, what can I say. lol
Because you're right, very right, on a few things. People (sheye likes to do this if you haven't noticed) like to knock others down if they think 'your perch is set too high'
However it doesn't much work now does it. And I have just say whats on my mind as well, which can be radical at times, but thats my own thinking.
