Every real relationship I've had has been possible because they, for some reason, understood my eccentricities and liked it. At least, they liked it for a little while.
Like I said in the Rarity forum, I need an INTJ woman.
You could try to get to know the person gradually, which could help. I'd known the last person I dated for a couple of years before we started spending more time together.
Maybe you need an INTJ woman... but maybe there are other sorts of women who would also understand and appreciate you.
I normally talk online first to the woman I have dates with. That, or I already know them. Normally, the first date is survivable in that case. And otherwise, your downside is limited. I either have a great story to tell (if she is a total disappointment), a great evening, or a relationship. Only upside!
I'm in a different book now.
Complete opposite of rant: I just got news I'm going to be an uncle again!!!!! I don't normally like kids, but I absolutely love my nephew and (I'm hoping it's a girl: the world could use a few more versions of my sister running around) my new niece/nephew. My brother let me name his son! I've known she thought she was preggers for a while, but her douche-bag first doctor took a guess and told her she mis-carried before doing any test. Her new doctor just confirmed she's with child and completely healthy, though.
Related Note: I'm officially the best uncle in the world. Me and my nephew took a vote on it yesterday.
That is fantastic news! The world can never have enough good uncles. :-)
