Atlanta group could defeat all other groups combined
I'm a lot further east then Yakima
speaking of sports leagues I was on a different first date yesterday, and she brought up local bowling league notably existing in these times, and I had an organic, non spergy opportunity to talk about Robert Putnam.
Did she know who he is?
@Will - MD no. I just broadly and succinctly talked about societal atomization.
Isn't there a book called bowling alone?
I have a good feeling about this one.
Oft cited by Uncle Jared himself
it's not like Robert Putnam is a white nationalist
He laments his own diversity research lol.
people know his work for reasons totally unrelated to racial politics
Hey not to interrupt the conversation, but are there any admins or something similar here who could answer a question for me?
Yeah I did not give the game away
is it even worth hiding your political opinions on a date?
it's gonna come out eventually
*Who dares wake me from my aeonic slumber?*
it's not like you're gonna get married and hide it forever
I just wanted to know as far as dues go, is there a certain date every month we need to send our membership fees or will someone contact us for that?
It’s not hiding, just omit them
Well I did admit to her, when she was understandably critiquing an excess of capitalism in the form of [local issue] that I was neither a pure capitalist nor a communist, that both were materialist ideologies and I prefer approaches that put the community and landbase first.
If someone talks politics on a first date they’re weird. Unless it’s essential, like it would be in say Patrick’s case
I never gave my last gf the full range of them, but never lied about them either. She learned most, and in the end almost all, and didn’t care
@danieldaly Should be reflected in your Apollo profile. But our accountant is pretty flexible and as long as you just pay every month you should be fine.
if I was dating, I'd prefer to find someone who is already okay with my views in the first place
I talk about the Great Replacement upon first meeting every person I encounter.
Tbh most women won't be receptive to these things, and as such I think you should focus on building a bond first, and eventually she'll mold to your beliefs. And is Apollo an app @sigruna14 ? I signed up on IEs website, but don't remember Apollo
I am trying the "be normal" thing. It worked! I will continue
well ya obviously you don't wanna be the guy who always talks about politics
