1. Your happiness cannot depend on other people; it must depend only on yourself.

2. You must be able to be happy and stable by yourself before you can even hope to be happy and stable in a relationship.

3. There are always going to be bastards in the world. Bastards can't help but be bastards because that's who they are. Leave them alone, and don't let them impact your life.

4. Your emotions are something you can, should, and must learn to control if you want to be successful in life.

5. You have a responsibility to yourself to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Every minute you don't spend doing something good, is a minute you have wasted.

6. It's impossible to control how other people will react to your sexuality. So, don't worry about it.

7. What underwear you wear matters. A lot.

8. Who a person is is far more important than anything else. That applies as much to you as it does to others.

9. No one looks good in corduroy.

10. Forgiving other people is not about absolving them of their transgressions against you; it's about choosing not to let what other people have done to harm you keep you down.

11. You always have to be safe. You owe that much to yourself. So, whether he says he's clean or not, don't be stupid.

12. Drugs are bad and they will ruin your life.

13. The club scene is something that's fun but it has no meaning. It is empty of any value other than pleasure -and the pursuit of pleasure is not the way to happiness.

14. Grindr is awesome -but there are a lot of creeps. So, beware -and be careful who you bring home or who you go home with.

15. Love and lust are different things.

Oh, I didn't realize that straight people used grindr... well, maybe str8 people lol (see 14). But of course, not all of these apply only to gay guys.

I mean really, Dylan... just because someone says [x] applies to [y] doesn't mean that [x] doesn't apply to [z].

lol but taking precaution when using grindr is only the concrete application of the underlying guideline to not trust random strangers with your life. The advise applies to straights as well.

That doesn't mean that it doesn't apply to others, Dylan. Come on, this is how logic works...

It's not a matter of logic so much as it is a matter of communication.

This is something you need to recognize: if I say something applies to one case doesn't mean it doesn't apply to others -or imply that one particular (or a list of fifteen particular) things is unique to that case. There is no error of communication. If I said "Here are fifteen lessons that apply ONLY to gay guys" that would have an entirely different meaning than "List of Life Lessons for Gay Guys."

I would acknowledge it in a different context, but the way this was framed precludes that interpretation entirely.

Let me make it concrete for you: what conclusions would the average person make about person A's fondness for romance movies if they responded to the question "do you like romance movies" with "I like the horror movies".

Dude, it's something that isn't up for interpretation. It's the literal meaning and implication of a sentence.

No, you're just not seeing the unifying principle. It's a bad example, but it illustrates my point.

This is a bad example because it fails to isolate the improbability of hating everyone from the de facto distinction made i.e. the reasoning is displaced by unrelated inferences which lead to the same conclusion. The point I was trying to make is that the comment is obviously expressing hate for the defining characteristics of homosexuality and not the prerequisites which homosexuality builds on i.e. human. It can be assumed that communicators avoid unnecessarily restrictive boundaries precisely because it is assumed...and because it is assumed communicators want to get their message across accurately.

This is a bad example because it fails to isolate the improbability of hating everyone from the de facto distinction made i.e. the reasoning is displaced by unrelated inferences which lead to the same conclusion. The point I was trying to make is that the comment is obviously expressing hate for the defining characteristics of homosexuality and not the prerequisites which homosexuality builds on i.e. human. It can be assumed that communicators avoid unnecessarily restrictive boundaries precisely because it is assumed...and because it is assumed communicators want to get their message across accurately.

There is no error of communication. If I said "Here are fifteen lessons that apply ONLY to gay guys" that would have an entirely different meaning than "List of Life Lessons for Gay Guys."

Let me make it concrete for you: what conclusions would the average person make about person A's fondness for romance movies if they responded to the question "do you like romance movies" with "I like the horror movies".

Inapplicable analogy, much? lol... really, Dylan...

No, you're just not seeing the unifying principle. It's a bad example, but it illustrates my point.

Not really...

Next time I see

You're just not getting it, there, Dylan.

Since it's unnecessary to identify who you're addressing, you come across as somewhat condescending when you end your sentences with 'Dylan'. See how that works?

Hey that sounds like good advice :p

A lot of this was actually pretty good general advice. And before you ask, the only reason I clicked on this thread was because I thought you were going to tell one of those stories about something you did.

1. Your happiness cannot depend on other people; it must depend only on yourself.

2. You must be able to be happy and stable by yourself before you can even hope to be happy and stable in a relationship.

3. There are always going to be bastards in the world. Bastards can't help but be bastards because that's who they are. Leave them alone, and don't let them impact your life.

4. Your emotions are something you can, should, and must learn to control if you want to be successful in life.

5. You have a responsibility to yourself to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Every minute you don't spend doing something good, is a minute you have wasted.

6. It's impossible to control how other people will react to your sexuality. So, don't worry about it.

7. What underwear you wear matters. A lot.

Although I probably don't want to know, but please explain.

8. Who a person is is far more important than anything else. That applies as much to you as it does to others.

9. No one looks good in corduroy.

10. Forgiving other people is not about absolving them of their transgressions against you; it's about choosing not to let what other people have done to harm you keep you down.

11. You always have to be safe. You owe that much to yourself. So, whether he says he's clean or not, don't be stupid.

12. Drugs are bad and they will ruin your life.

13. The club scene is something that's fun but it has no meaning. It is empty of any value other than pleasure -and the pursuit of pleasure is not the way to happiness.

14. Grindr is awesome -but there are a lot of creeps. So, beware -and be careful who you bring home or who you go home with.

15. Love and lust are different things.

My life is a lot less interesting now than it used to be, actually. I guess I grew up.

It's about being comfortable, but it's also about what a person's underwear says about them as a person.

This is true.

8. Who a person is is far more important than anything else. That applies as much to you as it does to others.

9. No one looks good in corduroy.

No one listens to me when I say this. I was about to leave my mum's and didn't have a jacket so I went to borrow one from my brother. He had two corduroy jackets, I left cold.

10. Forgiving other people is not about absolving them of their transgressions against you; it's about choosing not to let what other people have done to harm you keep you down.

11. You always have to be safe. You owe that much to yourself. So, whether he says he's clean or not, don't be stupid.

This is especially important.

12. Drugs are bad and they will ruin your life.

Which drugs?

13. The club scene is something that's fun but it has no meaning. It is empty of any value other than pleasure -and the pursuit of pleasure is not the way to happiness.

Doesn't mean one can't enjoy it. Though I presume the scene varies from place to place. Very tame down here.

14. Grindr is awesome -but there are a lot of creeps. So, beware -and be careful who you bring home or who you go home with.

Oh the things these eyes have seen lol.

15. Love and lust are different things.

Seems like a good list.

How is grindr different than any other social connection site. Like other have said, these truths are universal and not exclusive
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I left this thread annoyed by how obtuse dylan is, delighted by how sagacious YYW is, and amused by how unawarez sadolite is :)

Also, Noumena sounds like a sassy black woman mixed with a well-read pirate most of the time.
