Why does this keep happening to me? I think my anti (AI, machine learning, artificial neural networks, nanoanything, technological utopianism, and data science) rantings are finally starting to pay dividends.

I haven’t had a date since my wife died a little over a year ago. Do the kids these days still go to movies or eat out? God I am old, and tired. Is a walk in the park no longer considered hip? Dammit Dan nobody says hip anymore wtf is wrong with you. Stop writing what you are thinking you come off as insane. Fuck you brain I’m fine. Maybe if you put it in italics it wont look so crazy. Good idea. Done.

Anyway I would very much like to date you. I live in Kentucky and currently live with my parents and drive my mom’s car. I hope that is not a deal breaker. On the plus side I have a real job and am mostly normal. No way in hell is anyone gonna buy that shit Dan just quit while you are ahead. Will you please stop interrupting I was on a roll. What was I saying again? Oh yes, I am mostly normal and enjoy normal, everyday, things like a normal person would like. Walking, talking, eating, watching stuff, listening to things, etc. I am up for any one of those if you are.

As an fyi, I am kind of uncomfortable talking on the phone but for a completely normal reason of course. Therefore I would much prefer we set things up right here in the comments and responses section of our favorite barely solvent, hanging on by a thread, no longer really relevant, aspiring writer hang out site, Medium.com (MediumBurn dot check)


p.s. No weird stuff.
