      It’s really the current A list artists that coin it. Veteran artists that are no longer chart toppers are stuffed

              I was on an app () last night and I came across this guy. We exchanged numbers, had a great chat on the phone for two hours, committed to continuing the convo and maybe meeting up () later. So I message him this afternoon and no response. I can see from the app that he's quite online.

              I get that you should have zero expectations from the apps, but I just don't get going ghost after a good, lengthy convo. This isn't the first time something like this has happened, but I think I was upset (have since calmed down) because this guy actually seemed to have some potential.

                That's unfortunately typical these days, which is why I am now really careful about divulging too much about myself, or any private info like phone number, location etc, until I have actually met the person in real life. There are a lot of cat-fishes around these days too.

                  Yeah, I generally err on the side of vague especially with my location, but it's still bleh. He kept me up late enough that I was too tired to update my daily chart afterwards, so he gets docked additional points for that.

                  It is what it is, though, and definitely not the worst thing that could've happened.

                        I see there is a difference between (free) impulse consumption and impulse purchases because the latter ones may lead to wasted money or unnecessary material. Since taking my time to go for certain purchases, I hardly have any bad buys anymore. I wouldn't say that I'm impatient in all cases (e.g. when I'm hungry ;) ). When it comes to consumption in the widest sense, I try to stay patient because I consider that a good trait. Something along the lines of 'If I'm patient, then still feel interested and enjoy the respective thing, the chance is high that I'm going to enjoy it for a long time.'... Some users fall in and out of love with some tracks quickly, which doesn't sound too sustainable to me.
                        Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
                        and everything you stand for?
                        Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
                        just to tell you that I see more?

                        • Regarding the ghosting thing: I have, of course, been ghosted before and I know that I'm too kind and stuff, but I could never do that to anyone as long as the other person isn't straight up nasty or rude. I would really like to know what people gain from ghosting or even catfishing someone.

                          Regarding the idea of physical release first: Who are those people who leak material on the internet? I just don't get what's going on in their head. Are they seriously thinking they're helping their idol with that move? If you, legally or illegally, find access to unreleased material, keep it to yourself and enjoy it on your own.

                            I agree.

                            Trying to make sense of why people do the things they do is a recipe for insanity. Just best to let them be and swerve who needs to be swerved.

                                      Thank you. I don't know which part is more difficult, the funeral part or thinking of a life without him. One always knows his parents, etc. will die but don't know how painful it is until you experience.

                                      • On a personal level, your situation is totally understandable, especially if you've been close to your dad; and I wish you all the best to get through this heavy situation along with your beloved ones.

                                            Oh babgirl, very sorry to hear that. Losing a parent must be devastating and heartbreaking. Wish you a lot of strength and give yourself enough time to grief properly.
