One Night Boyfriend A Special Request For You

I want someone who is nice, active, athletic, fit, and fun.

Seeking to go hard. Highly preferred just so I know I am writeing to a real person. Imchill, listen to music, im really into news politics, im all over the place so if you think you wanna know me, then reply to this and lets talk. You can be single or married and neither age or race is an issue. Contact me ~ Lets explore the tomorrows.

Connect to your existing Cracked account if you have one or create a new Cracked username. There's a lot to love about being single. You save money on Valentine's Day gifts, you get to meet new and interesting people and sometimes you even get to have sex with them.

But it's not all knocking boots and freedom. There are some aspects of single life that might, in fact, be seen as less than desirable.

And then there are these five facts that will make you wish you got married in high school Of course my married co-workers take home a little more scratch than me! They tend to be older and lamer, and most corporate pay-scales are directly tied to how old and lame you are. You've got one part right: Your married co-workers take home more money.

Just how much you're getting cornholed depends on who you ask, but a recent study pegged it at about 27 percent. But it's not just age. The above study was based on identical twins where the bachelor was just as educated as his married dopelganger. In fact, even if you and a married man do the same job at the same level of competence for the same number of years , the guy with the ring takes home more than you.

There are a couple of possible explanations for this and, contrary to what you might want to believe, none of them involve your boss being jealous of your electrifying sex life. The explanation married guys are most likely to cite is a little old fashioned elbow grease. It's hard not to hustle when the option behind door number two is "let your wife and kids starve to death.

And even if your married co-worker is the slap dick and you're the responsible one, the perception still may not change. From your boss's perspective, that guy's money is going toward feeding his kids. Yours could be going toward any number of elicit activities he's vaguely aware of.

One of those sex parties he's seen on those HBO documentaries, perhaps. A happier employee will do better work, and get sick less. Less work means more time for us single folk to go out and have indiscriminate sex with one another, right? One way the "balance" is enforced is the Family and Medical Leave Act, which gives any employee the right to take time off if a spouse, child or parent gets sick. But what if you're struggling to save up enough money for a ring for your girlfriend of seven years when she gets hit by a bus?

Otherwise, you're just going to have to learn to weep a little quieter, because you're sort of bumming out the rest of the folks in Accounts Receivable. There's also the unofficial considerations. Married employees simply have more legitimate excuses to ask for time off: Yes, single people are more likely to be asked to work on holidays.

You're single, you don't have a wife or kids, what could you possibly have to do? It doesn't matter if you were planning to spend the day delivering presents to sick children. Someone's got to pick up the slack for the married guy who keeps taking time off to attend his daughter's dance recital. But don't worry too much about vacation time.

Thanks to something called per person double occupancy PPDO , you wouldn't be able to go on good vacations anyways. Essentially, hotels, cruise lines, pretty much anything that isn't a plane or a train, is designed and priced for couples. The travel industry wants as many people as possible roaming the streets in a capitalist frenzy. The more people they can pack into a hotel or a cruise ship, the happier they are. If that means punishing you for being unloved, so be it.

Maybe you'll learn not to be so lonely next time. The tax code has something called the "marriage penalty," which is supposed to make married couples pay more. Uncle Sam remembers what it was like to be a squirrel trying to get a nut.

Just enough for your co-worker to take his wife on that Hawaiian vacation while you do all his work. The benefit comes if there's an income disparity; i. If they're pulling in the mad bucks and their spouse is working a part time job, or just a full-time job that sucks, they wind up paying less.

You're stuck with the full tab. To add a little salt to the hemorrhaging wound in your bank account, married couples can choose to file jointly or separately. So they have plenty of wiggle room to get the lowest taxes possible. So basically, instead of getting a tax break, you're doing the equivalent of buying another wedding gift for all the happily married couples you know every April 14th.

You paid for that wine. And if you think the government's a dick to private citizens around tax time, you should try fighting wars for them.

You might expect the military to pay people who get shot at pretty well, regardless of whether or not they're married. They also get an increased housing allowance, which is untaxed money. So basically, married soldiers get bigger houses and enough money to install a jacuzzi in the backyard. But hey, at least you single folks get to play the field in Iraq. The field in Iraq.

Fine, so I'm poor, over-worked and my government hates me. That doesn't mean I should rush into anything. Only fools rush in! Elivis said that, and he was practically a genius. It's not like I should shack up with the next biologically viable human being I pass on the street, right?

Rutgers University did a study that gathered empirical data of social stigma associated with being single and, well Single men were viewed as being stupid and dishonest, and single women were more likely to be harassed and treated badly at restaurants.

In fact, the study yielded so much material, that report we linked up there runs 58 freaking pages. Even with the divorce rate hovering around 50 percent , marriage is still considered the norm. And if you're single for too long, there's a chance you'll stay that way. Time spent single is a lot like time spent in the bathroom. It's the most natural thing in the world, until you're there just a moment too long. But once you hit that point, there's no turning back.

People start to wonder what's wrong with you. Gross images start popping into their heads. The next time they see you, you might smell a little funny to them. But hey, look on the bright side, at least nothing's actually wrong with you, right?

We'd hate to send the message that you single folks are all alone in this world, with nobody to rely on but yourself See, even your body hates you for being single.

Opinions vary on why single people are more likely to get sick and die. Some think it's because marriage offers moral support to get through the tough times.

Others think it's just that a spouse is more likely to nag you into going to the doctor. Of course those are things you can counteract without getting married. Just buy a dog and schedule regular medical checkups, right?

But that won't change the fact that married people have a better immune systems than you. They don't have to be happily married. Even divorced people are better at fighting off illness. It's like marriage is an all purpose vaccination that never wears off. Then he wouldn't be so pathetic. You'd think the health care system would be designed to accommodate all the strange and fascinating diseases you single folks have waiting in your future. But married people get the better of that too, often choosing between two subsidized plans , and paying less per person.

In fact, they get such a good deal that people literally get married just to get on their partner's health plan. While this might sound pathetic to you now, it will sound a lot more reasonable when you realize that the grapefruit sized lump on your neck isn't going to remove itself. If it does remove itself, you're probably going to have to go to the ER and get that shit stitched up. But hey, happy Valentine's Day single people! You might want to hang onto all that money you're saving on gifts.

If you're in a relationship, find out just how much it sucks being single by sending one of these 15 Brutally Honest Valentine's Day Cards. In the age of CGI, it's easy to forget how many movie stunts are real Sometimes a small screw-up in the code can make a game unplayable in the most unexpected of ways.

Being Single During The Holidays Sucks

When you are on your own, it is even colder than usual. You might have ended up at some family getting together and you could not run from all those questions about your love life. They are constantly talking the same story and there is no way to avoid that conversation. They keep judging you and blaming you for broken relationships you had since you last visited your family. You have many friends and you think like you know them well, but suddenly you find out that most of them betroth while there are holidays.

It becomes more special if it is about Christmas time and they decide to get married. You end up thinking if you are the one who will spend your entire life with cats. However, it is not that bad when getting together occasionally. Even if that is something you choose for yourself, when it comes to a usual talk with a group of people, those who are together will remain on the same side, while you are about to convince them that you are complete without having anyone to agree with you.

It is hard to maintain eye contact in a room full of couples. If you are single because you want to be, you know how to behave during holidays in which you stay alone at home.

Research proved that touch is a powerful connector that can immediately tell someone they are OK. When a situation has intensity and possibly perceived danger we will move beyond our hesitations to reach out for help.

Studies were down during the bombing of London in the Second World War. Rather than people fighting each other for the limited resources they bonded together to share. Going on a strenuous hike with another can cement a friendship. Maybe you got lost. Once you rediscover the trail, you start laughing at all the mistakes you both made. Those mistakes become your shorthand to remind each other about the experience and how good it felt.

We need predictability in our lives. In lieu of no positive rituals, our unconscious will use negative rituals. A couple may have a date night every week. Through the week each person, rather than daydream about the last argument, can reflect on their weekly date that will be relaxing and connecting. Plan activities with friends that bring you closer. Most would not have thought hanging with other men would be fun. They know if something tough happens, they have their group.

Your ability to listen allows another to go deep into their experience. But how many people do you have that can sit with you for an hour and listen? When you look at listening as a mental task, it looks boring. When you look at listening as emotional intimacy, it can be scary or exciting. As the person speaks, feel your response.

Notice how your body responds. Notice how you are opening up. You can reflect back to the person the impact what they are saying is having on you.

When is the last time you were truly heard? I was one of them. It was when I started being like a kid that I started having fun. When I teased people in a loving way and laughed at myself that I started having fun. We are drawn to those who are fun. To be one of those people you need to risk making a fool of yourself. You will at first do or say something that is not fun.

Write it off as learning. Keep putting yourself out there. Your failures will feel worse for you than others. Others will appreciate the risk-taking. Practice the above behaviors with yourself. Have a weekly fun activity. Use the ROC formula with yourself. If you are doing a lot of negative self-talk, go to the underlying emotions. Feel them so you can release them. Shift your state, get your body moving. Often as kids when we had no one to console us, we did it for ourselves.

Now as an adult you have more choices. Choose to feel and express as you move through life. Stand up for yourself, as you would for a good friend. Others will sense how you take care of yourself which sets them up to believe you could do it for them. They will naturally trust you more.

Give the most precious gift, gift of yourself in vulnerable ways. Reveal not to get attention. Reveal to be the first to take the emotional risk. Tell the woman at the checkout she looks good in her dress. Just enough for your co-worker to take his wife on that Hawaiian vacation while you do all his work.

The benefit comes if there's an income disparity; i. If they're pulling in the mad bucks and their spouse is working a part time job, or just a full-time job that sucks, they wind up paying less.

Being Lonely — Not Just 'Alone' — Sucks comments. The holidays can be a really hard time of the year for people. Some people do not have the benefit of having a loving family around them. Some people do not have a family But there is a difference between being alone and feeling lonely. Being alone means physically being by yourself. In any case, being single during the holidays sucks. You are facing solitude while all other couples are doing funny things together. Your best friend is with her or his partner, having not much time to hang out with you. Being around happy people only makes me more miserable. February marks six years since I’ve been in a serious relationship. Much of that time has been spent doing all the things I didn’t do.
