Life and Being

1. Why do you live where you live?

I’ve lived fairly locally most of my life. It’s a decent enough place and suits me well.

2. Do you want to have your sins forgiven?

Well if you class sin as in the “7 deadly sins” then I am guilty of them all on a pretty regular basis with the exception of envy and all with that exception I enjoy them all! No forgiveness required or wanted.

3. Do you believe in heaven and hell?

No. It’s never played any part in my thinking. I must confess the Norse concept of Valhalla is appealing but not being Scandinavian(among other things) probably means I’m not gonna get an invite!

4. After life, where do you think you will end up?

In a big pine box, burned in a big oven and turned to ash which will be scattered to the four winds. 

5. If you have children, would they say you are the favorite parent? Why do you think this?

I don’t have any.

6. Has anything ever happened to you that was dramatic, personal or spectacular enough to cause you to be believe in a God?

There have probably been things in my life I cannot explain. There’s never been any occasion however that has caused me to believe in a higher being.

Bonus: What is something you consider to be a great personal success? Why was it so significant?

Still being alive and relatively sane and in one piece is probably my greatest. Many better people than me never managed that.

TMI Tuesday: December 13, 2016

1. Have you ever tested someone’s love for you? What did you do? Did things turn out as you expected or hoped?

No. I’ve never felt insecure enough to have to do that. From what I can see anyway when you start playing those sort of games they tend to backfire on you.

2. Select the answer that best fits your experience. I have dated:
a. all the wrong people
b. romantic companions that were mostly a good fit for me.
c. people that were perfect fits–loves at first sight
d. not all that much, I mainly have had a lot of long term relationships

I think a little bit of either a,b or d would cover the vast majority of my life so far.

3. Online dating: What is your success rate? What do you consider success?

I’ve never been on any specific online dating site. This wasn’t really any conscious decision it just never really had any appeal. I guess I’m old fashioned and prefer face to face. I have though been fortunate enough to meet some amazing people through twitter and Fet when I was still on there.

I suppose success is difficult to quantify. Sometimes a good friendship is success other times a relationship. I have been fortunate to find both at various times.

4. What sexual thing do you do most often that you could commit to doing everyday?

In all honesty there is nothing I do sexually that I could commit to doing every day. I have such a wide range of things I enjoy and I like that variety. It keeps things fresh.

If I had to pick something then I guess knife play would always be close to the top of the list.

5. What are your thoughts on love and lust?

Lust is the easiest of things. It takes no thought or effort. Love is hard work and can be painful.(or perhaps I’m cynical in my old age)

Bonus: Are you searching for love or are you searching for attention?

I’m not really searching for anything  and definitely not attention. I never look for trouble……she usually finds me all by herself! I prefer to generally just sit back, observe and see where life takes me.
