Re: Cause and effect

Will watch somewhen on weekend Seinfeld on that. Somehow I tried him many years ago but didn't find funny. May be the perception changed with age.

Re: Cause and effect

Today is poker day because there is a ton of free rolls on various sites. The bubble just burst in one. So I am guaranteed three fiddy. Here is a hand with which I am not sure how dumb is my fold.

It is basically last hand before the money. So I think I should have put-in something like a pot size bet on the flop. I am actually pretty sure that fold on the turn was right, but it was so painful.

Comments are very welcome.

Ha! And I am totally proud of myself that I found an online converter for hands. I usually procrastinate such stuff merciless.

Hold'em No Limit - 300/600 (70 ante) - 9 players


UTG: 14,323 (24 bb)
UTG+1: 5,843 (10 bb)
MP: 10,210 (17 bb)
MP+1 (Hero): 22,739 (38 bb)
LP: 6,649 (11 bb)
CO: 4,487 (7 bb)
BU: 18,058 (30 bb)
SB: 4,313 (7 bb)
BB: 16,960 (28 bb)

Pre-Flop: (1,530) Hero is MP+1 with 2 A
3 players fold, Hero raises to 1,200, 4 players fold, BB calls 600

Flop: (3,330) 3 5 A (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets 1,665, BB calls 1,665

Turn: (6,660) Q (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets 3,330, BB raises to 6,660, MP+1 (Hero) folds

Total pot: 13,320
BB wins 13,320

tx. Appreciate and blushing.

I think I have figured out what was going on this day with so many attempts to hook-up with me. I believe that it was my completely ratty clothing this day. I am normally rarely really done-up but I am at least what you would call in a decent, normal, adequately dressed area. This day I was not. I had my oldest jeans and a pullover that I inherited from one of my exxes on. The pullover is many sizes too big, for men, washed out and has paint stains on it because I renovated in it once. In retrospect I looked totally like a homeless person and definitely like someone for whom 100 Euro is a very good money. I think that made me look more approachable and the guys who normally don't dare dared.


I have to think more about it. I mean... if the last guy instead of 100 Euro offered me few compliments and a coffee, he had very good chances to get his kiss. He was definitely rather on a nerdy/shy side than machissimo( not my taste) and puppy-cute. I am also completely sure that I could have taken 100 Euro, kiss him and have him doing all normal stuff that a guy does to get a girl. Why didn't I do that? Somehow..... I don't know. Just the idea to get offered money for a kiss is so foreign to me. You either get it from me because I like you enough or not at all. But I kinda liked the guy... So no harm would be done.... Or? Would he felt more on a solid ground with money involved? Why do men pay for sexual stuff? Is it a hint that he thinks that I can be bought? kinda "yes". Or is it for him just a way to feel on the safe side and more masculine? I don't know. Is it a sign that he wanted just something sexual and was not really interested to get to know me further? I don't know.

Things that I know for sure: He was definitely on the shy side and it was difficult for him to tell me that he would give me 100 Euro if I kiss him. I don't think that it was some kind of bet plain because there was no one around.

It is kinda difficult ground. I mean.... I like, like every woman, gifts. I like when a guy gives me a feeling that he cares and is willing to provide. At the same time I can't stand when a guy overextends himself to impress me. It always leads to a completely unnecessary stress. Act within your means but don't be a miser. I can't stand when a guy tries to buy me. I am in a lucky situation that I don't have to endure any guy whom I don't really like for money. It is difficult.....

Re: Cause and effect

Thinking about meaning of clothing.

Why do I put this or that on me? Most of the time it is minimizing effort, time and energy with being dressed acceptable. I am very done-up when I go dancing and very business like when I have client meetings or something/someone in my job whom I have to impress. I rarely to never try to be hot. I don't know why...... No, I know..... Return on investment is negative if I am trying to be hot.

Somehow clothing is for me seriously low on a list of my life priorities. But such change in reaction from my environment makes me think. What do I want to signal to the outside world? What am I? How do I want to be perceived?

Re: Cause and effect

My running track today.



I need to do stuff that I hate. A huge bunch of paper work. I would so pay for a really good secretary, for someone who sorts crap for me and makes out of undescernible pile of **** a nice que of discrete small tasks. But I think such secretary would have higher hourly than I do. So off I go sorting myself through my pile of crap. Hopefully I am through in 2 hours.

Re: Cause and effect

RRRRANT.

I can't stand whiney poor shmuks!

And poor is not the state of finances but the state of mind. You know this people with the attitude that the world ows them something and has wronged them. The people who expect you to jump-in and start solving their problems and are totally in a huff when you don't.

A Russian dude who tried to hook-up with me some time ago appeared again in my WhatsApp today and confirmed his existence as a poor shmuck. I didn't want then because he started to talk some nonsense that men should be cherished and taken care of because men are the weak species. That topped with descriptions of his prostate issues + no language + zero integrated after 4 years. Was definitely not my case, not even as acquaintance.

Today suddenly a picture of the end of the lease letter from his landlord. Not a word of comment to that. I mean.... I totally know what he wants: that I solve this problem for him. But HELL... then ask at least! No... just a picture and this expectation that I am going to jump in. I have send to him a translation of the letter. His reaction is huffing passive aggressive text: " thank you for your great help. " .... I don't owe him anything. He didn't even ask for help. It is just this expectation that I should guess what he needs and then run do it. And if I don't then he is going to try to give me a guilt trip.


Such people don't even make me want to kick their butt. The only emotion they cause in me is disgust and wish to keep as huge as possible distance.

Re: Cause and effect

are you sure he didn't really just mean "Thanks for your help!"? Huffing passive aggressive seems like a lot to read into those words.
