I'm so abundantly pleased by talking to my new friends as much as I am (which is, frankly, an astonishing amount). And I do suspect (if not outright believe) I love them. Yet, at present, within that experience of love there is keenly felt a sense of unrest and yearning. I am reminded of McTaggart, where he quotes the below from A.C. Swinburne's poem, By the North Sea:

The wind's is their doom and their blessing:
To desire, and have always above
A possession beyond their possessing,
A love beyond reach of their love.

My heart, then, rests in a state of warm affection and great delight, while at the same time reaching out for a higher union and a stronger bond between lover and beloved. It is a sad longing intermixed, or blended, with a wonderful and pleasurable sense of love.

A buffet served to your table is not a buffet.

No, indeed, I would think it is not.

I went to a party yesterday. It reminded me why I hate parties. That should be enough social interaction for the next decade or two.

I'm very thankful for all those who love me and, at the moment, feel immense gratitude for their presence in my life.

Hmm… I find having schizophrenia is like living a nightmare… but is there something good about having schizophrenia or psychosis? Some may say it makes them more creative… idk if that’s true… I’ve been told I have a vivid imagination. That can also be a negative thing too… But living with the mental illness there’s ups and down and all around. Human mind plays on emotions, thinking, and the way you live life. It’s a struggle… life in general is a struggle. Live for the good learn from the bad. I’m not crazy… I’m human. I’m not shooting up schools… I’m no serial killers or rapist. Just human

I may go to bed without dinner tonight. I gotta be up earlyish tomorrow anyway. Besides, it saves money, and I’ll get slightly less fat. ;)

I think you should have a least a very light dinner, but that's just me! I certainly know Brenden would approve, though!

I’m sure he doesn’t want me to be a fatty either. :D

Yes, I would consider myself quite fat, so ‘fatty’ is fairly accurate. I will re-lose the weight eventually though.

I approve because occasional fasting triggers the survival mode of sirtuins, proteins that when in such mode do DNA repair. Even skinny people would benefit. It does indeed also help tremendously with weight loss, though.

Apparently the muppets Bert and Ernie are modelled after a banana and and orange.

I’m not ready to sleep yet.

Do I actually want a boyfriend, or am I just lonely and getting that mixed up with my desire for cock...

I feel like you were thinking a very similar thought quite recently.

I can certainly recommend having a nice boyfriend. It's so nice.

It is rather a regular thought for me. At any given moment I'm never sure if I want an actual romantic connection with someone, or if I'm just thirsty and being dramatic about it. :P

Why do you assume those are two different things?

There's not really a lot of overlap in how I would theoretically pursue a legitimate relationship and how I pursue random hookups :P

Okay, that's probably not a good strategy.

Repeat after me. Grindr for casual sex. Tinder for relationships.

(Granted, I found a boyfriend on Grindr, but that took an insane amount of luck. :P)

Also probably varies by area, but I'm guessing England is similar to Scotland.

In my limited Tinder experience most guys seemed to use that for casual sex too. Or to try and get Instagram followers.
