Dating after being dumped
A date string may contain items indicating calendar date, time of day, time zone, day of week, relative time, relative date, and numbers.
Type the following command However, I recommend setting NTPD client / server or Open NTPD server to synchronize the local clock of a computer system with remote NTP servers.hen invoked without arguments, the date command displays the current date and time.Depending on the options specified, date will set the date and time or print it in a user defined way.I’ve seen many sysadmin writing perl scripts for calculating relative date such as yesterdays or tomorrows day.You can use GNU date command, which is designed to handle relative date calculation such as: The –date=STRING is a human readable format such as “next Thursday” or “1 month ago”.Oh I relate to this interview with Jaclyn Friedman so, so much.
She talks about the difficulties of dating while feminist, and how hard it can be to negoatiate your beliefs with your lovelife.
I mostly date dudes, and let me tell you: That shit is not easy.
Outing oneself as a Feminist Blogger does help to immediately weed out particularly undesireable men, but it also creates a lot of expectations and problems. “Hey, look at my bad-ass girl.” They don’t want to deal with me as a person. I feel like the same thing happened with the guy I dated for two years.
One of those is certainly what Jaclyn calls Hellcat Dream Girl: What happens to me that drives me up a tree is this: The guys who respond to me and are like, ‘You’re awesome. But then when that outspokenness gets applied back to them, it’s suddenly game-over. She’s light, and quirky, and she has no inner life of her own, and just there to serve our hero’s development and erotic interests. It follows this pattern where it usually comes from a person who seeks me out. They think I would be an accomplishment to conquer or something. He liked the idea of being a guy who would be with someone like me, but ultimately it turned out that he wanted someone who wouldn’t challenge him as much, a person who was easier and quicker to sweep away.
You’re kind of a hellcat.” They think it’s cool and kind of bad-ass that I’m outspoken and passionate about things. I sort of feel that I get cast in these dudes’ narratives as the Hellcat Dream Girl, there to prove how bad-ass they are because they’re dating such a bad-ass woman. But when I use that smart, outspoken bad-assery to challenge their own perspectives, it’s suddenly not sexy at all. They seek me out and try to get me interested in them, and then I am, and then they flee. I got evidence of that when, within three months of breaking up with me, he was dating a 23 year old who lists her political views on Facebook as “moderate.” Another issue I run into all the time?
It happens when they say something that I disagree with, and I act like a person and not someone that is playing out their particular fantasies. Knee-jerk defensiveness if I say anything about sexism that may somehow kind of have something to do with you.
