Honestly, my stance on the environment is the same as Katey and Naturegirl's. It's just that their reasons for that stance seem to be different. I value humans above all else, and we can't live without certain species, and even non-essential species provide research and resource opportunities. Ergo, they're still valuable and need to be protected.

Agreed, my stance is that since the environment (as it is now) is very useful for us, we should ensure that the environment remains so, for the continued survival GLORY of mankind.

There's nothing pristine or sacred about this particular, modern configuration of flora and fauna. At least no more than every other extinct era before it.

I'd disagree, if only because the one enviroconfiguration we have now is the one we have. And one enviriconfiguration in the hand is worth two in the bush.

“Some people charge money for that kind of thing!” is also an acceptable response.

I also agree with this, we need to protect what’s here. I just meant that we should protect not ONLY for humans, we need to make sure we can survive without causing a mass extinction

Having sat in on discussions making decisions about this kind of thing (one of my supervisors last year is a world expert in fisheries management), a surprising number of human lives can hang on what seems like a small environmental change. I have sentimental attachment to the old order, but my resistance to changing it is 90% pragmatic.

I do believe we have come to an accord.

Unfortunately, I very much doubt we’ll be able to agree on who should be killed first.

Edit: corrected autocorrect.

Dictators, dictators should be killed first, since dictatorships tend to lead to the largest amount of suffering

I feel like I've basically tried everything, and still came up nothing.

My hobbies are basically all sausage-fests.  There are no girls aside from girlfriends getting dragged in.  I don't have time/money to pick up different ones, nor do I want to give up what I have now.

VA doesn't really have traditional bars.  All bars are required to serve X amount of food, so basically they're restaurants or shitty sports bars.

I've looked thru meetup.com and everything is either outside my demographic (either lgbt or people over 50 or some shit) or only occurs when I'm at work.  Same goes for the local community center.

Online dating's a farce and a scam so why bother.

And just being out in the public means nothing.  I'm practically a regular at the gym and the bookstore.  People will do anything to avoid talking to strangers.

Amazing how much easier it was to make friends in our youth, huh? You sat next to a kid and decided 'okay, we're friends now' and that was it. Dating is always complicated though, and breaking into new groups or circles is usually difficult, like how many outings do you go on with your pals where you rope some stranger in, eh.

I'm sure the lgbt groups could use allies; I'd expect their meetups to have interesting conversations (and maybe one has a cute straight friend in they can refer you to?). Could be location thing, too- I'd be in the same rut if I stayed in the sleepy suburban towns I was living in before.

I got no advice for you, 'cept keep your eyes open and chin up. We're all humans with human desires and plenty out there are sharing your struggle.
