    is being "fixed up" against the Fifth??

    on a few occasions, I have had certain "unpersons" try to fix me up with women....
    last time it happened, I wasn't even asked if I was interested.... some taffer just came out of the blue and said he "had someone who would date me"......

    all things considered... I think that what he was doing wasn't just plain rude, but questionable under the Fifth Amendment's "due process clause"... only way to get "it" off my back was that I had to tell him that if he kept pushing the matter, I'd report him to the House Commission on Un-American Activities....

    any insights from the Collective on that matter???

    Yeah...like you, I also don't think he was being rude. In all honesty, he probably thought that he was doing you a massive favour. In my own personal experience, I've received similar gestures. Offers to make up a night out foursome with my mates girlfriend's friend. Might just be me, but I never fancied anyone who was ushered in my direction by this method.

    Happens to everybody Eiji. They probably mean no harm. And it could well be someone else put them up to it.

    Friends tried to fix me up on occasion. Not one of the lucky ladies ever saw anything in me. Tell your pal an old friend told you blind dates never work. No use dropping the nuke on e'm. Not yet anyway.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    as I have asked before: How can they know what I'd like in a girl if I don't know that myself??
    until I can answer that question ("What do I want in a woman?"), then I am obligated to refuse...

    (after all... "arrogant presumption" is a major thoughtcrime in my view.... and furthermore, I think "arranged" pairings have no place in supposedly democratic societies... as I said, questionable under the Fifth.. "no citizen is to be deprived of Life, Liberty, or Property without Due Process of Law" -- so I don't see how this can be constitutional unless all the involved parties retain legal counsel)

    Oh. Sorry.

    I misread the sentence.

    I still think he was only trying to do you a favour. You're under no obligation whatsoever.

    After all, doesn't 'no' mean 'no'.

    only if you're a woman.... if men say "no" to a date, you get the "you going gay on us?"-treatment... main reason I consider those "favors" as being done by "unpersons"...

    Indeed. I have previously been told by my manager that such and such is 'waiting' for you to make a move. 'She is waiting for you to take initiative'.

    Excuse me, but what the fuck!?

    I find these assumptions extremely annoying. They try to shove they sense of masculine identity, in this case 'taking initiative' down my throat and then when I don't respond accordingly, they seem to be taken aback.

    As a MAN, as a Man Going His Own Way, I have the right to be offended at such a statement, I have the right to threaten my manager with harassment.
    I was not attracted to that girl in my workplace, I think she is very unattractive, even ugly and that is my right to say it in those very words and to feel strongly about it.

    The feminists and other degenerates have mastered the art of being 'offended' and it is about time we used those very same tools for our own self-protection. That doesn't of course mean we cannot have discussions and critique, but we are Men Going Their Own Way, we need to have boundaries that are clear and we need our boundaries to be respected.

    Do you get this upset when someone offers you a piece of cake? Did they ask you if you like cake before hand?

    Did you ever consider that you might make a new friend this way? Nobody says you must marry, or date, or ever see this person again. Who knows, there is a cheek for every seat, and this person might be someone who can actually put up with you in small quantities.

    So much drama. You remind me of THIS guy.

    A wife is a woman you constantly financially support even when she is not having sex with you.

    An ex-wife is a woman you constantly financially support with alimony so she can have sex......with someone else.

    Re: is being "fixed up" against the Fifth??

    honestly, Sam.....
    I take no issue with someone asking me if I would like some cake... but then again, that is asking me if I was interested first... something that taffer I mentioned didn't do...
    furthermore, seems you didn't read for content.... just how could those freebirths know what I'd like a woman if I dont know that myself??? (and I figure until I can answer that question... I'm obligated to refuse...)

    btw.. clear up some of your inbox.. I haven't been able to PM you for a few weeks..

    biggest reason I tend to dislike the idea of being "fixed up" is that it makes it look like I don't have a say in the matter...... hence, I see it as the thoughtcrime of "arrogant presumption"..
    that clear things up any?

    I don't think it's illegal. The person doing it might have good intentions but not always. I find being fixed up and dating to be a total waste of time and money.

    I never said "illegal".. just "questionable" under the Fifth's "due process" clause...
    And as I said... wasn't even asked if I was interested in the first place

    Re: is being "fixed up" against the Fifth??

    Yeah... a woman being "fixed up" with some equally single guy. Woo hoo! That's gotta get her intrigue and mystery juices flowing! You may as well give her all your money and go home and wank off. Or, just go home and wank off and SAVE your money and let Single Susan buy her own fucking dinner.

    Seriously, maybe when dates START with a blowjob I might reconsider interest...

    No need to go on the date. It was very rude of someone to just fix you up with someone without your knowledge. Dating is boring & stupid anyway. The dates I've been on were total disasters. Most of the time the bitch gets very pushy and controlling and judgmental. I'd say within 10 minutes of meeting her she tells me what I can and can't do and like. Yes Massa Yes Massa! I refuse to pay for a complete stranger.
