Escorts are now advertising on Facebook dating. Some charming ladies but I don't want to catch a solicitation charge for a handjob. That's why God created strip clubs.

the thought of facebook dating is terrifying and repulsive in equal measure, considering the demographics that still pollute that hell-site.

nobody young or attractive uses facebook.

Facebook dating is much better that Tinder. FD's algorithm actually matches you people with your interest rather than throw random pictures at you. It also allows you to initiate contact rather than hope someone likes your picture.

I am more charming to talk to than I look in pictures. I rather be judged by how I can initiate a conversation than how I look

there's been about 2 generations of dating app to supplant tinder by now. tinder is resolutely bottom-barrel, mingers-n-disfigured mostly.

most dating apps also stack hard on certain socioeconomic brackets. tinder is lumpenprole meat market. bumble is better educated, fancier women (due to their females-must-message-first UQP). hinge is for well-educated and professional types, people over the student hump, who want to bond based on common interests, etc. etc.

Ask yourself what would Gundam do. If he wouldn't do it, don't do it.

I need to look at the man in the mirror and ask him to change his ways.

Next hour will be vital.

The Elizabeth Holmes trial text messages are funny. Never join a criminal conspiracy with a lover because the government will put your text out there.

weird when you consider he was twice her age and she was a relatively good looking (if stare-eyed and fucking insane) woman in her early 20s. (look at the guy she went on to engage and get impregnated by in a fucking hurry straight after the collapse of theranos and her relationship with balwani; definitely more what you'd expect from someone of her socioeconomic caste; and another poor rube who is being played for the court case, no doubt: who wants to leave a newborn child motherless?)

i think they were both just playing each other. and she was probably smart and conniving enough to 'butter the toast' in that way, sending lots of performative texts that portrayed her as helplessly in love and in thrall to this guy. they were, after all, in a criminal conspiracy together and both of them were fully aware of the fact. she was probably concocting contingency plans to come across as the 'damsel in distress', the 'young, naïve and manipulated girl' during her off-time when she wasn't faking medical technology and bamboozling investors. it wouldn't surprise me if she goes on to blame 'the media' or silicon valley or whatever for helping to 'fuel her delusions' and convince her of her own bullshit. anything to diminish responsibility and salve her own greed.

when she entered her plea and defence and took the line of being 'manipulated and abused by her partner, the former CFO of theranos', even the press who were closely involved in the story were temporarily sideswiped, because it didn't fit with the reported workplace culture at theranos at all, in which they both acted like a callous and tyrannical pair. the idea that she was preparing this defence scenario way ahead of time seems really plausible to me tbh. the texts were just sent as 'future evidence'. which probably explains balwani's bemused and nonplussed replies ("ok"). the schmaltzy love card stuff was essentially a non sequitur in their business-personal relationship. i doubt she was ever that clingy and emotive when they were together in person; it was clearly never a relationship built on romance and passionate attraction.

total sociopath.

She is definitely some sort of mentally unwell. I think having a kid is half a ploy to get out of prison and also her last chance at parenthood before a possible 20 year sentence.

I don't think she was building a preemptive defense. Criminals of all types rarely plan out their defense strategies years ahead. The lady was delusional and the older guy she met fed her into delusions? Plausible but even if so she still deserves to go to prison.

"My new life as of this night and forever more: - total confidence in myself best business person of the year – focus – details excellence – don't give what anyone thinks – engage employees in meetings by stories and making it about them (ie prepare well)," Holmes texted Balwani in November 2014 while discussing the full moon that evening.

Ten minutes later, Holmes texted again: "No response?" Balwani responded: "Awesome. U r listening and paying attention…"
I looked it up and she met him when she was 18. They were together for 13 years. That's a long time to run a con on a guy. Either way, she deserves to go to jail.
