The most pointless click of your life

Things will get better, eventually

Note: the day after being released this post was mysteriously edited, and even if for the time being I’m not sure of exactly what happened, since I’m waiting for the hosting provider to get back to me with some explanation, what I’m sure about is that it wasn’t me who did the edit. This is to say that, if when you read the post it doesn’t seem to make sense and you have the impressions that some words are clearly missing, then it means it has been edited once again against my will.

Back in the day when I was still listening to music through YouTube, one day I was preparing lunch in the kitchen while listening to the music through my external speaker connected to the iMac via Bluetooth. I had launched an initial song, and then the autoplay would have taken care of playing other songs on similar genre one after the other. All proceeded normally for quite a while, until the music stopped. Strange. Continue reading “The most pointless click of your life”

I’m not taking a shot at you

I’m just expressing my view on the matter

Earlier on today, while I was writing the guide on Looks [1], I kept thinking of the “no affiliate links in here” post, and I felt compelled to add a couple of sentences in there to clarify an important point. Because here in the blog, as in my real life, I come on strong with my own opinions. Continue reading “I’m not taking a shot at you”

Women show us how they use Tinder

Thanks for that, much appreciated

Let me kick off this post starting from the conclusion: if you live in the Western world and you don’t legitimately look like a male model, or at the very least like the newly created figure of the “male instagram model” [1], then don’t even bother with online dating (and by the way, deluding yourself into thinking that you look like that doesn’t count). And let me follow-up with a promise: this will be my last post on Western world online dating before moving on to some more productive topics. Continue reading “Women show us how they use Tinder”

Understanding women: after online dating

Newly single in summer 2017, I quickly realised that during the six years I spent in a relationship quite a few things had appeared on the market: on one side a bunch of dating apps led by Tinder, on the other side a variety of “social” platforms the most deleterious of which was certainly Instagram.

Understanding women: before online dating

I grew up in a very traditional and loving family, and since when I was a little kid, I was taught to follow the rules and behave respectfully towards others, and I was urged to study hard, get high grades at school, and do sport. Long story short I was raised to be your typical nice guy, and the happy ending of this journey was always implied along the way: you will graduate with very high grades so that you will find a very good job (that has happened), and you will meet a caring woman who will become your loving wife and with whom you will start a family and live happily ever after. Too bad that by the time I finished the university and got a job that sort of mindset about marriage and family was outdated by at least 20 years… Continue reading “Understanding women: before online dating”

What?! Another pick-up website??

And this would be a very legitimate question indeed, my dear reader. The World Wide Web is currently clogged by material revolving around the modern intersexual dynamics, and just by looking at the sheer volume of resources available online on that subject, one can quickly get an idea that something is not quite right. Because if things were right, there would be no need talk so extensively about it. Continue reading “What?! Another pick-up website??”
