    ........and I turned 30.


    I am now old as fuck + out of touch.

    Last summer, one of the high school girls who interned in our lab was like,
    "Hey kliniitic, you're really funny for somebody who is out of high school" (or worded in an equally weird way that didn't directly call me old).


    Life is terrible.

    ANYWAYS, I wanted to share this w/ u all so u could better comprehend ur own depreciation over the years bc i was like 9-10 when i started posting on TZT and so im rly feeling my bones and idk any other way to make myself less depressed about it except to make u guys feel worse about urselves. i cant even IMAGINE what its like 2 b as old as u guys but the way things are headed it aint looking 2 good for me in the future either pals so

    :bick:

    Oh, huh, I assumed you were older than me. I turned 33 a week or two ago

    If you still do online dating expect your match rate to plummet after today

    thanks pal and yeah i was smart and LIED about my age when I played eq so ppl would respect me.

    I remember when I started I was slaying orcs in gfay for like a month w/ this chick who was 16 yrs old and i'd lie 2 her and say I was a teen and make shit up and had a lil crush going on and then one day she decided she was going to send me pics so I gave her my email and she sent me some pics and she was fat + unattractive and i stopped responding to /tells and talking to her at that pt bc i didnt know what to do. I mean i feel rly bad about it and even did at the time but I know i made the right choice.

    I never even considered how simply 29 --> 30 would so drastically change online dating but yeah, makes sense, that sucks. I mean im not and it doesnt rly effect me rite now but i feel even more depressed knowing this fact.

    how i started playing everquest is actually a sorta weird + neat story:

    I had a pal who was a poor mexican kid who had a windows computer (!!!) and had bought EVERQUEST to play. He clearly didn't realize it was pay-per-month and thus never actually played it, but I didn't realize that until several months later. he was a really sweet kid who ODd on oxys when I was 15-16 and never deserved the life he had. He was a better person than anyone ive ever met since.

    ANYWAYS, I saw it in his bedroom and he explained the game to me (i.e.., made it up) and it sounded so fucking fantastic. I wanted to play so bad, but I was grew up pretty poor (but not really really poor. my parents had just gone several different kinds of bankrupt before I was born. All my persian cousins are millionaires and my dad sits on a lot of inheritance he cant access easily bc its in iran etc. All my persian aunts/uncles have 10-500 million because they're smart and moved their money out of iran ASAP when they got it). --we didn't have a computer, I didn't even sleep in a fucking bed or in a bedroom (i have 4 siblings, big family). But I wanted to play so bad. I was a weird kid who picked up pennies on the sidewalk and hoarded money at an early age (prolly due to my fathers influence) so I had inadvertently saved up a few hundred dollars, but not enough to buy a computer. So I started doing 'work' trying to raise money, and my brother was rly nice and agreed to pay me like $50 to 'work' with him for a day. His rich boss I guess learned what was going on and wrote me a check for a little less than $1k. With all the monies I had I bought a computer and prepaid my father for the subscription.


    I rolled on RZ a dark elf necro and spent 3 hours trying to get out of neriak. I drowned somewhere inside and gave up and rerolled a WE druid on TZ, immediately fell off kelethin and died and all my starting newbie stuff rotted. It was a really hard start, and I didn't even know how to buy new spells until I was like 12. Feel bad for every1 who had to play with me at that pt.

    I heard about it in this magazine which i prob bought because Firiona Vie tits https://www.ebay.com/itm/PC-Games-september-1998-Everquest-cover/303546715472

    My pal and I got it on launch and had no idea what the fuck we were doing. Played a Bard first and thought that was cool as fuck. I spent hours running around with Selos until I got wrecked by a cyclops in one of the Karanas and couldn't get my corpse back. I tried like every class to level 15 or so and learned the game that way. Kelethin/Felwithe was by far my fav starting area.

    We played on RZ for a while and then TZ when it launched. The midget-elf battles during the first couple weeks was the most fun I had playing the game.

    I've never had age factor into dating, it goes by height + face + body and age is only factored in depending on those 3 +/- your income (the money only factors in if they are gold digging, if they just want to fuck it doesn't even come into play)

    also you're a persian doctor and my ENT is argentinian/persian and he's younger 40's and his wife is 23

    also a coworker in aerospace in his later 40's (he got hair plugs too) wife was a 24 year old from one of those countries in between russia/western europe

    Yah but they don’t see your height + face + income if they have their search settings capped at 30

    Oh that is true, I’ve actually never tried that

    It really isn’t very noticeable out here, anyway, though, you’re right

    In small town Florida it was fairly acute before grad school->grad school

    But then, I was also broke asf in grad school so maybe it really was just income

    It’s hard to be motivated to engage with online dating when it’s been this long since I’ve had a haircut

    also when u look at every date prospect as a prospective rona carrier

    that's gotta be a damper

    I’ve met some pretty great chicks on tinder and hinge. I always set out with the expectation of casual but sometimes you get surprised. People do tend to be flaky though

    Bumble is worthless

    Feeld (the app that is explicit about being for casual sex) seems like a honey trap but I know people who’ve had good experiences on there
