Are you kidding?
Without all the other stuff that causes stress, all we DO together is have fun.
I'm teaching her how to snorkel, she taught me how to sew (I wanted kevlar pants).
We have sex more often than any teenager I know of.
We take random trips, always spur of the moment.
She comes over to my place whenever she wants, leaves whenever she wants, and its the same for me at her place.


Basically we don't fall into a routine and ignore one another, the time we spend together IS together.

It seems really distant.
I personally wouldn't like that. I want to be with the person and to be close instead of just hanging out.
But if it works for you yay ;D

What part of it is distant?
When we are together, we DO things.
Yesterday we drove into Calgary, browsed princess auto together, joking about things as we went. Then we had lunch at a great, inexpensive restaurant she had never been to before.
We went to Direct buy and hashed out ideas for the house she is about to build. The other Princess Auto was near there so we browsed that one too ;) Went over to the swimming pool for a while, took in a movie (that sucked but we spent the whole time making fun of it). On the way home she had the brainwave that she wanted a peking duck so we went to a wierd a$$ asian grocery store that smelled like wet dog and we couldn't tell what anything was (no english on the labels) unless it was recognizable (like the octopus wrapped around a rotten duck egg ^_^ )
We found a couple of decent things, she teased me about my sweet tooth (but the rock sugar was only $1.25/ box!!!).
Then we went back to her place and watched a movie together.
Most couples I know ONLY hang out, both people can be in the same room but they are rarely "together"

I agree with Chez, But AUTO you should not get offended, You just have a different way that you want to live and you found someone that is so far compatible with it. No Problem at All, just a different outlook. And a different way you wish to live and have your "Own" completeness.

I choose to look at it and Live as, We are 2 Wholes that then become One Whole. My Woman is part of me and her pain is my pain. One flesh. We complete each other, yes we spend time apart and have our own hobbies we enjoy. But We Are Eternal Best Friends you build a life together and share the experience and Grow with.

I'm not saying you Don't enjoy parts of that as well we just want to live and look at it differently is all

You said it better than I did.
I just took a bit more practical approach to "finding" a good one.
Instead of letting "little Auto" guide my path ;)
I also chose to hold off jumping in the sack with her, not for long but I wanted to see what she was actually like before being blinded by instinct/hormones :na:

*edit* No worries about getting offended, I respect the opinion of intelligent people.
Different views are a great thing but in this instance I think we are pretty close in our views, just a different way of going about it.

I have in my wallet my oyster card (gives us British kids free travel on buses) along with money. I wouldn't dare carry a knife because there's a 4 year sentence here if you're caught carrying one without a good reason and, while i think there is a minimum size for that rule applying, there's a big scare on at the moment about teenagers with knives so if i got stop-searched they would definitely take the knife and i'd probably end up in a police station for a while. I used to have my phone on a belt holster, but the clip came off. Been meaning to fix it or buy a new one actually... i was quite fond of it.

And, i don't smoke either. I just love fire. Not something i can explain... haha. Although one time some stranger asked me for a lighter and, upon seeing the bright blue flame of the slightly rigged torch-burner, ran off with it. I never saw him again :(. I got one that was identical shortly afterward, but anyway. I don't hand my lighters to strangers anymore.

And i missed an item off the list, my inhaler. Not too exciting.
Fascination with fire... I can relate:evil: At least to a degree I started looking into lasers a while back because I was kind of disappointed by what I found out about lighters. I wanted to spend $100 or less on a good lighter that can take any abuse, be left filled for months, and working when I need it. Unfortunately what I found left me discouraged. Reviews even on the most expensive lighters were mixed once I took the time to look. I mean given all the technology around today you'd think a lighter would be something basic, but the general consensus was that for most tasks nothing really beats a zippo in reliability... IF you fill it, or a cheap bic. Very disappointing.

I've actually drawn up a few designs, but have no idea how to put them into practice. So instead I use an small industrial blow torch, a zippo, and small calibri lighter for the time being. I can also easily use the 445nm laser:eg:

With regards to knives, I leave them whenever I need to go into any kind of secured situation, but at other times, it's really not an issue. I've researched the subject quite a bit and the fact of the matter is in most cities, 3" or less is perfectly legal. If the knife is not used in committing a crime, or even found after you are arrested for a crime, it's not really an issue either so long as you didn't actually use it for said crime. More often than not the object in question (basically ANYTHING dangerous) is confiscated unless you can provide proof that you have a good reason for having it.

On the plus side, I'm a pretty big guy, so most cops don't bother with me unless they have to. I don't give them a reason so it all works out. Interestingly enough, got patted down and had all my usual stuff on me. Ended up talking to the cop and we went to drink(He was going off shift). He was at the end of his shift. The key was, as he started to pat me down, I started telling him before he got anywhere exactly what he would find.

One word of advice... drop the hidden pocket stuff, to anyone but the laziest bum cop it will be super obvious.

Chez doesn't really wear pants (or "trousers" as we tend to call them - for us "pants" means underwear :crackup) she always wears skirts. They do have pockets but as far as i'm aware the only thing in them is her iPhone. Which i proceed to steal frequently and dispense of in appropriate waste disposal units.

I'd rather reach my hand down her cleavage, tbh. That's where she keeps all her exciting things :whistle:
:crackup::crackup::crackup: Personally I'm an @$$ man, but keep reaching!

Also I find the minor linguistic differences fascinating.:D

@AUTO XX

So much of what you said overlaps... it's funny that you don't agree. One interesting note is that you both place great importance on your partner being "whole" outside of the relationship. IMO this is a crucial factor.

Both of you make valid points and there is no right or wrong. Although personally I think I would prefer a relationship somewhere in between.

Marriage can work, but it can also fail miserably. I've seen examples of both scenarios too many times. The big difference is the people who stay together and are happy together are the ones who want the same things, and don't do it out of convenience.

Too many times people get together out of convenience, and at some later point realize that they really don't want to be with that person, don't agree on a ton of things, and are basically just going through the motions of being married.

Personally I'm ambivalent on the subject of kids. Wouldn't mind having some, but I really don't believe that it would be good for them. I have a friend, who owes me $300 for the past year and half. Always scheming always making and more often losing money. Today I wanted to slap him because guess what... his wife is in the hospital... he's having a 4th kid. Is a person who can't scrape together $300 really responsible enough for four kids? To be honest, I don't know. He's a nice guy, great to hangout with, but what kind of father is he gonna be? What kind of scars are those 4 kids gonna have when they grow up?

As for finances... Number one reason marriages don't work out... financial stress. It's good IMO that two people can support each other, but I think BOTH people should be financially stable before any kind of long term relationship. The whole "richer or poorer" line is crucial in marriage... but how many people actually thing about it? And I don't mean a quick nod to agree.

Another little tidbit on the subject. Routines. Great for work, amazing for financial growth and health. TERRIBLE for relationships. Getting stuck in one it's only a matter of time until one partner or the other realizes that it's gotten boring.

I, at one point, had a thing about disassembling lighters. There was a junk stall nearby me that sold what were presumably factory reject lighters for £1 each. All shapes, all flame styles. I made up standardised names for them, so that when i was explaining it to people i wouldn't have to keep describing them; torch lighters have a flame like a bunsen-burner working flame and had the advantage of being equally hot all the way through... the disadvantage? The flame is almost invisible. Coloured torch lighters took advantage of the fact that the flame was equally hot throughout by having a piece of metal or alloy at the bottom which gives the flame a colour. Torch burners were even hotter, like a bunsen burner roaring flame. The payoff being that the flame was cold at the bottom, but it was able to obliterate basically anything at the tip. The other advantage being that because the fuel\oxygen mixture was good, if flame temperature wasn't an issue, big, big flames could be achieved (although this made ignition unreliable)

So the next step was to distinguish the difference. Disassembly time!! Generally, in the standard lighters there was a little metal nozzle. When butane flowed through this nozzle it was kept away from oxygen. It would then leave and mix with air before being ignited (by a peizo spark or a flintwheel spark... problem with peizo sparks being that you had to work out a working circuit and they often break, problem with flintwheels being the necessity to change the flints). The size of fuel tank was irrelevant, but it was biggest on the lighters designed for lighting cookers. The torch lighters had a little ceramic-and-metal peice with a hole in the bottom and side. The bottom would slot into a plastic tube where it would receive the butane and air would diffuse in through the hole in the side and be forced up as a mixture with the butane through two holes in the top. The ceramic casing then combined the two output holes into one high-quality flame (without it there were two weird flames). Finally, the torch-burner peice was all-metal. It had the flame hole-in-the-side system, but this would lead through to the middle of the output end. The butane was then pushed through 6-8 little holes which formed a ring around the central hole where the oxygen is output.

So what do i do? I test, i play and i figure out. My plan was to build something at the end, but i never got round to it :D. I did find, amusingly, that if the torch-burner nozzle is fed butane too fast and not held in properly, because the input hole is much smaller and the feed rate is slower, builds pressure in the input tube (connecting the nozzle to the tank). It can then be sent rocketting across a room :crackup: and i also found that the flame-height adjuster on most fuel tanks is actually a screwthread and if you turn it too far it pops out and all the butane comes rushing out. I've had a few fuel tanks sent rocketting across the room as a result of that.
...fun stuff... I might get round to building my many-flame lighter this holiday, now that i know where to get metal hobby-boxes.

And, about the knives, I will probably be happy to carry one in a few years time. Atm, i'm a teenager with long hair and an affinity for fingerless gloves and that looks angry when walking through places with a high concentration of policemen (nothing against policemen, they just reside in areas where there are also high concentrations of thugs, pregnant teenagers, ram-it-in-your-face dogmatic Christian preachers and various other forms of shit). So i'm a prime target to be searched. And, i don't own a huge amount of knives so i wouldn't want them to be taken off me. Also, i'm absolutely tiny so if that's what policemen base their searchings on, i'm a prime suspect.

And, i didn't ever really store contraband in the hidden pockets (except the firecracker, but i stopped that once i knew they were illegal :eg:). Although i do store my pyrotechnic compositions in there if i'm taking them anywhere to show people. Doesn't really make the situation worse, and if it reduces the likelihood of it being found even slightly then it's a good thing. Although if it's white then that might be not the best of ideas... ;)

Sorry sir, but you appear to have misunderstood me. :thinking:

Chez actually keeps interesting stuff down there. Anything that she's found that's small and cute, anything she's stolen from me recently and anything she doesn't want me to see. She has this bizzare idea that for some reason once it's down there i'm not going to find it. Doesn't seem to occur to her that i put my hand down there far more often than i do her bag, or her pockets.

I got her a tiny glowstick, the kind used for fishing rods one time.
Conversation:
Me: Look at this! *crack and shake*
Her: What is it?... Awww! It's tiny!! *stuffs inside bra*

...women are strange... :crackup:

While there are some ridiculously expensive knives out there, the fact of the matter for most applications something middle of the road quality will do just fine, and you're not gonna be too upset if you lose one. Personally I use the Gerber Kiowa (Careful there are some knock offs of this one floating around) and Kershaw Leek. I think the offer they best price to performance ratio, but both do use pretty cheap steel. If you're willing to sharpen them once in a while it's never an issue though, and the leek especially takes me less than 5 minutes to get to shaving sharp.

And, i didn't ever really store contraband in the hidden pockets (except the firecracker, but i stopped that once i knew they were illegal :eg:).

This is really a bad idea. If any cop finds a white substance hidden in a secret compartment... and in a competent pat down they will find them... they will automatically arrest you. The fact that after testing they will see that the substance is not a drug is not really a help either... In the current political climate they may well assume you're planning something terrorist related. Which might be even worse than having hard drugs.

LMAO, no I didn't misunderstand, its just that I've always found the female anatomy even more entertaining than anything which can be placed there:eek:

I did have a similar experience with a 5mW greenie on halloween one time. Girl really liked it, and also stuffed it down her bra... Fishing it out was fun:D My biggest regret of the night, we never even got each others names or numbers:(
