    @Blue6erry Just so you know, I was born and raised in Texas, Ft. Worth actually, and at the time I was in school it wasn't until about 10th-11th grade Texas had a state standard test, it was the Iowa Test of Basic Skills before that, we did finally get a Texas standard's test, TABS, when I was in high school. And state curriculum do vary, some states teach scientific facts and reality and historical facts, Texas does not and does not want to, currently. Education is very political and I really do wish it wasn't. Unfortunately Texas has over weighted power in the adoption of education curriculum because of it's power over textbooks. This is not a left/right thing, Texas has one of the largest school age populations so what it dictates to school book publishers gets published and sent out to other states who do not have the clout. If Texas is Blue, not since 1980's other states get a "Blue" textbook, it Texas is "Red" other states get a "Red" textbook. 


    I was being sarcastic to a certain extent, and I am honestly older than most of the people on this site, so most missed my reference, and ignored my plea for non-political education.  Math is math, science should be science (no man and dinosaur lived at the same time (and no I'm not talking about birds), and history should be history (Civil War was about owning slaves not states rights).

    I heard the same thing about drowning and my friends flipped out they were all like how would anyone know, they drowned their dead. It was so annoying to try to explain that drowning doesn’t mean dead as you can be resuscitated.

    The reason there is no "basic" Uber, or other services like it (i.e. Lift), is because of recent rulings that make them illegal to operate. There are still Uber Black and Uber X because they don't infringe this ruling, since they are considered "rental with driver" (which is a dumb distinction), but this allows uber to still be present in the country (albeit at an higher cost). I hate it because I love using Uber outside of Italy (so cheap and convenient), and lawmakers here got scared too easily by taxi drivers' associations.

    First off so I don't get flamed, fuck Dan, he's irrational.


    That being said, I really have no idea how hookup culture works. To be honest I find it gross regardless of the gender doing it, so I don't have a neutral opinion on that topic. What I can say is if I went on a date with someone, a genuine date to see if we are compatible, I'd be a little peeved if the other person has been doing those "genuine dates" with a ton of other people. I still hold by how incredibly easier it is for a girl to find a date or just someone that is interested in them in general. For me as a guy, it's rare, and when I do at last, I put a ton of thought into the potential of a relationship because that could be the last one for years before I find someone else. The idea that that other person sees you as one in their lineup to pick and choose just makes me uncomfortable. If that's how normal people date, then I guess I understand better how much I suck at it.

    • floatingmustache FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      She doesn't know you yet, and one "genuine" date might not convince her you're worth a relationship, but maybe she doesn't want to give up on you after one date. 


      If you were able to get more than one woman interested in you at a time (going by your words), and you were unsure about compatibility with person A after the first date, that doesn't mean you should wait around before going on a first date with person B. It's not a lineup, it's getting to know different people over time since there's not yet a commitment, whether you're hooking up or not.

    • Antimattergizmo FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      3 weeks ago

      I didn't explain genuine properly. The description was in my head not my words. I mean after asking someone out after a long period of getting close to them and getting to know them, because you are now ready to see if you can be dating proper. If someone spends that time prior to dating with a large amount of potential people, that's perfectly reasonable. But once it pushes over into the we're dating now territory and they still aren't sure who they choose I don't know when that will end. Obviously not after having sex the first time because of hookup culture. Should I be fine with people dating multiple guys up until the point that we break up or marry?


      Maybe it's assuming that exclusivity is implied, that I shouldn't need to discuss whether or not it's alright to be seeing other people because I only have this one person. My only experience with multiple interests was through Tindr. I was messaging two girls that I never ended up meeting before they ghosted me, and I only rationalized it because it felt cool to be able to date two people when the usual is 0 and it wouldn't matter if they found out because I just had to block them. My mentality was whoever I visited in person first and didn't despise, I'd block the other one. So, in the end I believe for me it's just the physicality of dating someone you know in person, and not being able to just choose never to see them again and be done with it, that makes me uncomfortable.


      None of this makes any sense. Maybe I'll just not worry about it because it's a silly hypothetical that asserts I'd even fall into that situation in those specific pretenses.

    • floatingmustache FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I think I understand now. You're kind of conflating dating in general with a relationship. You are free to date (or not date) as many people as you want until you and a person have an actual conversation about having an exclusive relationship. It definitely shouldn't be assumed on the first couple of dates. 


      I don't mean to say you have to date multiple people. Perfectly fine if that's not your thing. Just, if you happen to get messages from two girls at once on Tinder again, you shouldn't feel guilty or have to rationalize about making dates with both of them. 

    • Antimattergizmo FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      3 weeks ago

      I guess the problem stems from the fact I've never gone ON a date with someone before starting a serious relationship first, so in my mind I was thinking you aren't dating someone unless you're already committed. I forget that's not the norm, so the previous replies are understandably confusing. That's my last reply, because navigating comments on this site is a pain.

    I've got a twin story. I'm a twin, but we are fraternal(different genders). But every bloody person would look at the two of us, say this, without fail or variation

    "Oh you are twins, are you identical?"

    Oh my goodness; I loved this episode! The Hocus Pocus hype is real.  heart_eyes Texas slayed the hell our of the makeup today!! And those pics of childhood were so super adorable too! Peep that fierce eyebrow game. 


    I love how chill Bethany was is the face of an international flight oops. In a former work life, I did events and every year I would end up on the phone late the last night of the conference rerouting at least one of my fun-loving Canadian team members' travel. Oh the memories. I want to be as calm as Bethany someday... it won't happen, but I can dream, right? 


    Also, if she's old for taking the TAAS test, I'm an ancient relic. laughing I took the T.E.A.M.S. test for years before they switched it to the TAAS. Oh and I do think I'm going to have nightmares about Gus's scary situation that happened. What the actual fxck? That's some craziness!


    And yeah, "Dan" can get bent. He sounds like trouble waiting to happen. He was a case study in red flags. I also hope someday (soon), people will chill tf out about other peep's sex lives. Let people live. Anyway, great show as usual. I LOVE this podcast! It is one of the few I HAVE to experience every week. Thanks for the killer content!  kissing_heart

    I feel like if you feel bad that's a good indicator that you aren't cut out to sleep with multiple people in a week. I'm all for people doing what they want but if I have to listen to another friend say they feel bad after sleeping with multiple girls. Or they are dating someone and they were flirting with another person, they didn't get physical but they still feel bad. Maybe you went to far.
