I play an FPS-game while playing fitting music, and then when I need to withdraw from the surge I play something more calming but has moments that can make you tense, like CKII or Terraria.

 

TLDR: Music & video games solves the problem.

That's what I do, too; just boot up a HALO game and take out my frustrations on the Covenant.

How do you guys deal with anger?


I play TF2 to get my frustration out. Thats how I am known by the little known title of the Hand Sniper.
Such as here:
https://steamuserima...89AE800E6D8887/


If that doesn't work than I try to play a Paradox game, and if that doesn't work I go to my room, and punch and cry my frustration out. Than I fall into a deep state of loneliness, than eventually scrape myself up and out of the bed.

It was a poster board on Cognitive enhancing medication and how they only act as placebos.

We had to pick a side if we are for it agansit a certain controversial topic of are choice such as GMOs, Designer babies, human cloning that sort of thing.
I picked Smart pills and argued against it.
Made the poster board and typed a 1 paged paper explaining the subject.

Hope that answers your question.

My IRL friends haven't been too helpful in answering this, so I thought I'd come to you for help.

What should I do on my first date?  Aside from taking her to her favorite restaurant, of course.

Depends on the person do you know them well or is this a blind date?

Know them ask them about what's current in there life examples include work, school, a show you know she likes.
As the date continues ask more personalized questions like what did you think when I asked you out or something that doesn't sound generic.
Most importantly never interrupt her. When she is talking pay close attention because she may say something you know or like and that can make a smooth transition into the personalized questions.
Have good manners.
Put the napkin in your lap.
Pull the chair out for her.
Doing a bunch of little things can add up real quickly putting you in a positive position.
Also order something similar to what she is getting.
If there is bread or chips on the table never be the first to grab for them let her pick first.
Also never send food back to the kitchen.

Blind date do what is above but keep all questions and topics you make generic. You are discovering the unique layers that make this individual take your time. You don't have to know everything by the first date.

Also if you feel nervous remember she is feeling exactly the same.

(I like to point out I'm great at giving advice but the second it's my situation I forget what to do.)

I would like to know how you got with her to begin with Cap (and if you don't' want too in detail or personal i completely understand).

 

There is this girl at a restaurant I go to every Tuesday (and sometimes other days in the week), and though I have been going there for a month and a half now I haven't worked up the courage to say more than just my order. She is divine, and i think she is also interested in me. I don't understand, I can talk to other restaurant workers when i am at other places, but I just can't seem to do more than keep eye contact and smile while giving my order. Yesterday was my last Tuesday at work, so if I want to continue seeing her I have to drive all the way over there for a single meal (because of this I may have to make it every other Tuesday). Next time I should try to exchange names, only natural IMO since i am a regular customer, maybe even comment on how i like her tattoo and/or nails if I work up the nerve.

All these love sick people this week.
It's kinda cute. :P
My Hip Historian I suggest giving the compliment then ask her if she willing to go for a cup of coffee sometime.
This will lead to a causally first date that's not really a date situation.
For bline data information look above.

Mr. Cap
I hope everything gose well with your date.

Wishing both you guys the best.

Also it will be one year tell my first date I accidentally set up two years in advance.

Y'all are overthinking this; just have fun honestly. Such preemptive meticulousness is probably just gonna make you even more nervous.

 

I mean there's nothing wrong with hitting up a food place you both will enjoy, but if you're going into a date holding your partner at such an untouchable level that you're holding yourself back from picking bread or ordering an entree you yourself like, I'd consider rethinking your approach. That will just be very uncomfortable for you and your date alike. Bread is good stuff, fampais. Restaurants can kinda play into those outdated chivalrous cliches anyway, so maybe even consider something less potentially stuffy, like a cafe. The best part of it all is just getting to know each other, imo, and in my experience it's so much easier to have conversations like that in places like those. Plus if it seems too noisy, you can just order your drinks to go and go sit somewhere neat.

 

Works cited: absolutely no "traditional" date experience, but fond memories of things like the second paragraph that led me into a few really good friendships, romantic or otherwise.

 

Also omg TTL I would definitely consider rethinking your approach, but hey I'm nearly 27 and somehow still young, so you do you.

I didn't know what form of date he wanted or expected I just listed off basics and went a bit out of hand.
I'm more a traditional person anyway most of the stuff I listed I do naturally.

Also with the bread thing it's not like you sit there for forever just give her the time to pick first.
(I should have worded that better.)

The entree thing is a play on physiology.
If you eat something similar to someone you most likely have other things in common.

Guys, I meant what should I do as in, where should I take her?  I already know the etiquette, though your advice on that has been a good reminder.

 

I would like to know how you got with her to begin with Cap (and if you don't' want too in detail or personal i completely understand).

You want the story, you'll get the story.

So I have a group of three friends in my church group that I love to hang out with.  We go see movies, go to the mall, y'know: friend stuff.  Well, one evening in March, shortly after the Power Rangers movie was released, my friends and I arranged to go and see it after a bit of hanging out at the mall.  I thought it was going to be just the four of us.

I was wrong.  One of my friends brought another of her friends along to hang out.  This friend is the girl that I'm going out with now; for the sake of keeping her relatively anonymous, let's call her Tab.  I like to make new friends, so I attempted to make Tab one of my new friends.  We hit it off right away over our mutual love of hugs, jokes, and sour candy.  We parted ways that night with each other's numbers, so we could include her in more future hangouts.

Flash forward a few weeks, and I found out that my best friend, who's also a member of our little group, was shipping me with Tab.  He began to pester me about texting her for more than planning, and deduced from my slight reluctance to do so that I was in like with her.  He was right.

Flash forward a few more weeks, to just recently, and my friends and I, including Tab, were at a McDonald's feasting on chicken nuggets.  Tab was sitting right next to me, and my best friend kept subtly motioning for me to tell her that I liked her.  I did, in front of all my friends.  I asked Tab out, and she said yes.  My friends applauded, and the other two girls said we'd be cute together.

There you go.  That's the story of how I got my first date.
