@Logan5 Not crazy, just a bit out of it, Amanda Berry.
@LondonLee Neither is the level! Buildings have ground and upper levels. Each level can have multiple floors, because each room gets it's own damn floor! Languages are stupid. It's a scientific fact.
@Danzig! Making new friends in the new city and going out and living your life is a much better way to live than spending your time with your head buried into your phone or computer screen. I'll allow an exception for the most educated and the most literary among us who may come up with something insightful or creative enough to actually enrich their lives through exchange of words and letters and whatnot, but for the most of us, living necessarily means steeping away from the communication devices (or pens and papers if you insist).
@yeahiguess I'd definitely advise for having a bit more realistic expectations from talking to people. Not being able to go into certain topics with certain people is really not a big problem, and not even an interesting topic in itself worth discussing.
@yeahiguess I'll tell you this about cheese: eating it is much better than talking about it.
@Whimsy You don't have to tell me any (sob) stories on the subject: I left my entire country (an ocean and a continent away) at age 25 just so I can survive, leaving behind every single person I've ever met. I am saying this (and am right about it): a friendship (not to mention "dating") is not, and cannot be just having conversations, no matter how often you have them and no matter the range and depth of subjects. That's how you get into such silly issue like the one above. I was gonna say "oh well, big deal.. just go out with your friend (or sister), get drunk, go for a bike ride together, see a show, that's the real shit, you don't have to discuss personal issues all the time, just go and DO LIFE together, that's how a real bond feels really good". But then I read the line about living far away from each other. That's the real problem, and there is not much that can be done about it.
"They live in different regions of the country and also a different region than I do"
Then you are not "in each others lives" (and they are not really "dating"), and no amount of Skyping or Facebooking can change that. Talk is cheap. To be a friend or a sister you have to "spend time", you have to be there, you have to share experiences... it's immensely depressing to me that things like this need to be explained.
If you are all so important to each other, then what in the fuck made you move away from each other? Something more important I'm guessing: your own lives.
"as we are all ladies in our 20s and that is pretty much our main interest"
Time to develop some new interests. I wish Polly would ignore letters from kids whose only problem is that they are growing up. Or maybe I'm just too old for this shit.
Snobs are people who think they are better than others because they can appreciate the fine things in life other people can't. Hispters are those who think they are better than others PERIOD, and they adorn themselves in junk for the purpose of proving that point.
As a snob, I would gladly unite with the rubes in trashing the hispters, if they were only sophisticated enough to tell the damn difference!
"Who’s going to ride all these things?"
Yeah, really good question, considering how we just don't have enough people of diverse enough lifestyles in this small sleepy city of ours.
