Bass players who watch me play a 5 string often comment on my strange technique, because my hand moves a LOT. Then I show them my hands.

For bass, the only thing that it gives me an issue with is octaves on the B and E strings in the first position, and four fret stretches. I just had to develop really good accuracy with my shifts and I was good. Another issue I have is that I can't use my pinky and ring fingers simultaneously; if the ring finger is fretting a note, the pinky cant reach the fretboard, and if the pinky is fretting, I have to arch the ring finger so much to hit the fretboard, it's not even worth it.

I can do a 6 fret stretch from first position, but that's because my first bass teacher gave me a set of hand stretches to do every day, as often as was comfortable, because I could only hit from F to G#.

So an "Online dating thread" is really just another "Toilet seat up or down thread"?

FWIW I live in the woods and prefer to just go outside.

I have nothing to add about online dating.

Maybe I'm using the wrong word....the last guy I met...I thought he was nice via texting, we had a similar sense of humor, his pictures looked good....but when we met something about him put me off.

Shreeky laugh, tiny hands, I literally mentally asked myself if I could see myself kissing him and I felt a little grossed out.

There was NO attraction in person. I need to feel some attraction towards the person - and I guess that's what I'm calling chemistry.

I'm still learning. Have only met two people from online, the more I meet the more I think I will understand what I am looking for. Maybe I need to force myself to go on second dates when I just didn't feel it on the first....I don't know.

I want to just say - I'm going to do the things I love in my life and when I meet someone, then yay! But I can't do the things I love in my life right now. So this is my option.
What my concern would be if you were immediately strongly attracted to someone on the first date. It is typically a sign that the person is pushing the pleasure centers associated with one of your existing heuristics. There is something about the person that is seductive and it is not necessarily a good something.

I guess the best way to say it is be cautious if someone is exceptionally attractive right off the bat.

In that case I need to ask... what are you hiding?

So wait...you're telling me that if I want to fuck someone on the first date, it means I shouldn't fuck them on the first date?

I had a therapist tell me that basically everything about my attraction mechanism was wrong, and if I'm attracted to a girl I should probably run the other direction as fast as possible. Talk abouts a headfuck.

There doesn't need to be anything hidden. I get exactly what Kindness is saying here and have to admit that it's a fairly recent development for me.

It's also a very thin line because one could easily go from one extreme to the other; falling head over heels for somebody that flips a lot of switches but overall may not be a good fit is one side of it. The other side is the jaded, suspicious wall of Stone that rejects everything for fear of something too good to be true.

Truth be told I think most of us fall too far on either side of that line.

I think the issue is acting on that attraction when you are looking for a more long term relationship. Because seductive can be a good thing in the long run also.

Well I have such a man-boner for kindness I just assumed it meant he had bodies buried somewhere or something. I have a thing for serial killing pathological liars dressed in vests.

Stop trying to rescue women, dummy!

There's nothing quite like when a woman who doesn't need you for anything keeps returning your phone calls, it's pure bliss.

No shit. My last girl was like that. Didn't save her, she didn't need me. Turned out she REALLY didn't need me in the end. But that's okay. Took me damn near 30 years to figure that shit out.

That is a very excellent point. I'm going to put some thought into this and will be careful going forward.

I've only had that head over heels feeling for two people in my life. One I dated and he ran off to Texas, the other I never got a chance to date but is in a larger circle of friends. I enjoy swooning over getting to look at him now and then

Heh, sounds like my marriage. I was never necessary, but I was a damn fine lifestyle-affordability accoutrement. As soon as my income was no longer required for her to keep up with her trust-fundy friends, I was out.

Oh I was a way to escape her living situation (living with her ex) originally, and then she had to justify the one-night stand with a relationship, then she stuck around 'cuz I think she felt bad for me for a while, then she got bored and too busy. Shoulda seen it coming.
