fullten is probably one of the best people on this website

Aww you’re sweet <3 

I would have to disagree. fullten is THE best person on this website (or really any website, I’d imagine).
I don&#8217;t know where this is from, but I can&#8217;t stop laughing.

Hey Ten, I'm 21 and I feel torn about wanting to date and the idea of dating. Like, I want to try dating and having a relationship but at the same time I feel that I'm not emotionally mature enough to maintain one yet. Not only that I find it really difficult to connect with others and have been told that it's because I have high standards and I should lower them. But I seen dating advice say be picky and stand firm because you know what you want which I stand by. What's your opinion on this?

NEVER LOWER YOUR FUCKING STANDARDS 

Look, I see it over and over and over again. Girls lower their standards, end up with assholes, over and over and over again, and then Mr Luke Warm Decent Guy comes along and they treat him like he’s the fucking holy grail, when in reality, he is the most mediocre motherfucker to walk the planet, but because he’s not an asshole constantly, just sometimes, he seems sooo amazing. NO. Don’t do that to yourself. Keep your standards high, don’t touch the peasants. 

And relationships, is all communication, that’s all it is. It’s not hard work, people just act like it is, and if it is really hard work to stay together, then maybe these people shouldn’t be together. That’s all there is too it.  The person you are with should make you, not just happy, but amazed. They should push you to be a better person, they should be happy when you accomplish something, they should know all your demons and not be scared by them, their should be passion, and this person should set you on fire. Don’t settle for luke warm dude. 

This woman is an absolute genius who tolerates no crap. I wish there were a lot more people like her in the world. I really do.

Linking back to this simply because nobody listens to Scarce, and so very few know/remember them.  And to not have heard Obviously Midnight at least once in one’s life would be a definite loss.

I absolutely love Scarce! I’m so glad you posted this, but I agree with what you said. I not only got to see Scarce play in Chicago a few times in the early to mid-90’s, but I got to see them play at the (since closed) Luminaire in London a few years ago, where they debuted a documentary about the band, which is love to remake, since it wasn’t shot or recorded very well at all (it was amateur fan-created) and they deserve the best-looking (and sounding!) documentary possible!
