I'm bored and unamused

    I may look like an alien in such a country, but given my strong like of video games, movies, unusual ideas, and people who don't subscribe to unquestioned Christian Fundamentalism, I still have dreams of visiting Japan. As strange as it sounds, I wonder whether I can find a job better than here in this low-as-can-be-in-terms-of-Economy town I am in. Who knows, maybe I can discover something like acting and play a villain in some weird Japanese low-budget film. That would make me so happy, I would do it @ a low salary.

    I've been thinking it over more, and I can never be fully convinced I didn't lead a previous life as someone who is Japanese - lolol. But I'll tell you more about what I deal with in the US and how I don't fit in:

    A woman messaged me on an old dating site account I had yesterday that had been inactive for 1 year. I really think she was a real woman as there were no red flags and she was quite honest. She was attractive, but also didn't seem "too good to be true". Then I kind of thought over how she was a strong Christian Fundamentalist, very strong. I tried not to make it a deal breaker. Every text I wrote her was a good 1 page long and very deep. She seemed to like me, but we were on different levels. She was more the type of person to talk about food with, and I was more the type of person to talk Philosophy, world religions, feelings, etc. This wouldn't be such a problem if this wasn't the first time I have grown very bored. Whenever I meet a person on these free dating sites, they all kind of have that "700 club" vibe despite being good people (I think. Well most of them) and I'm ready to just fall asleep as I talk to them, and that dozing off isn't because I kept myself awake in fascination. And yeah, I'm talking about US people.

    My sympathies to you. You should ask God since you say you believe in God (you have God as your religion). God sent me to Spain on my birthday one year. It was the place I wanted to go the most. Second, consider finding a job in Japan such as teaching English. There are opportunities. Third, consider joining the military. I was in the Navy which helped me to travel a lot. The Navy has a base (or maybe two, I forget) in Japan. Don't ever give up on your dreams and don't settle for being bored. God bless you, brother.

    Sounds like you have too high expectations. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy having long philosophical talks as well. But the fact is most people are very shallow nowadays.

    Thought I had me a good one a few weeks ago. She starts off the conversation about what my opinion on Ley Lines is. We had a good conversation which included the magnetic poles and how they are shifting, the electromagnetic field that surround the earth and how that might effect Ley Lines (if they exist) etc. But turns out she is with somebody so I dropped her. Don't want that kind of drama in my life anymore, had too much of that already. Damn shame too, because I really liked her. :(

    Dunno what advice I could give ya. You could lower your expectations a bit, that's easier said than done though. Just hang in there you'll figure it out.

    If you aren't happy, you should change something. Nowadays, there are plenty of opportunities to make money online, you even don't have to leave the house. Just look for some options, maybe learn something and start changing your life. For example, here is a big list of freelance sites, just check it out travelsites.com/work-and-travel/
