Question: "What what makes a good girlfriend/boyfriend for you?"
Original Conversation (January 8-12, 2010):http://comments.deviantart.com/5/29523266/1330706410
Kala:I think it's very important for the person to be able to look at something from under the surface level. And I'm not talking just about looks. I mean like when you first listen to a song, and even if you dont really like or care for it, you continue to listen just because you believe that basing your opinion on it on that first experience isn't just enough/right.
I think like this a lot, so this is important. People my age (teenagers) don't really think like this, so I'm not really into looking for a boyfriend or whatever. My age group's mentality of bf/gf is "Aww this person makes me happy and I'm happy with this person so I like them!" Of course I wouldn't want to be sad/frustrated with the person I'm with, but there's so much more to understand than just your feelings. There are things like how they interpret the world, how they react to situations, and how much they are compatible/compliment with your own personality.
I also like being open to new and different things, so that element is a must, though not necessarily being the most accepting person in the world who loves everything and everyone.
Everything else is pretty much just the extra icing on top, and I won't try to be picky about it. (Though it would nice to have someone to share my culture, art-related, and video game experiences with!)
I've never had a bf, and have never really cared for it, because I'm not all totally srs about finding someone or tried to look hard or yearned for one or felt empty inside 'cause I didn't have one or other cliche 'love' stuff etc. When the time comes, it'll come.
Stranger:You have more wisdom than your years show. You will be prepared and know what you want very well when the time comes, just do not be surprised when you have a hard time finding someone who electrifies your mind with thoughts as stimulating as your own, and able to set your heart ablaze with the passion that resides within their own.
I find it very humorous that most people who posted who are of age (18-2x) posted 2-4 sentences, and if their post was longer still didn't manage to say anything as decisive, intelligent or meaningful as you.
Kala:Why thank you. Your reply makes me happy! (:
I don't show what I'm thinking most of the time, so when I do share my thoughts people either look at me like "Wtf are you talking about" or either say "You're a lot more mature than you look." Usually the former are my teenage peers and the latter are older people I happen to be talking to. But that's just probably 'cause I don't act like the type of person to think like this, haha.
While I am in some ways preparing my heart for when 'love' does come, I know that it won't suddenly be rainbows and unicorns, and pain will be inevitable in some shape or form. I just like to keep the idea that although difficult to do, it's good to focus on the positive. Life's not perfect, but that's okay. I'll get through.
Stranger:I don't if I would say you can prepare for love. Basically it's not possible. But I would say you are as close as you can be. Feel free to quote me, especially on this next part. One can not love another until one has learned to loved themselves; and while it is possible to love yourself without intimate knowledge of oneself, usually that task is impossible until one is able to look inside oneself honestly and discern not only their true motivations, but the factors that underlie them.
Kala:Yeah, that's basically what I meant. Trying to, but know I can't really.
That is some very good advice. I'll be sure to remember it. :)
Stranger:I apologize for telling you something you already know then. :)
Kala:Not a problem at all, thank you for allowing me to engage in such a enjoyable conversation. :)
Haha, lots of smilies, but that's what you did, make me smile! I sure did appreciate it.
Stranger:You are very welcome my dear. I'd be happy to oblige you any time. One of the cornerstones of humanity is communication, if we were unable to communicate with another of similar understanding; a large portion of our humanity would slowly wither away a die. It is a terrible thing to lose ones sanity, even more terrible when its decline is slow enough that we can grasp the loss and glimpse the road ahead.
I am very glad that I was able to shower your life with some light doll face. ;)
Kala:Gosh, you're like a quote machine, haha. Such great writing.
IF MY PARENTS WEREN’T SLEEPING IN THE NEXT ROOM AND MY SISTER WASN’T UPSTAIRS I’D TOTALLY BE BLASTING MY SPEAKERS AND DANCING ALL OVER THE ROOM!!
This is just me frothing over The Adventures of (Duane & Brand0) new LP OF DEVASTATIONNNN OMG EARTHBOUNDDDDD I would totally put a cut here but audio posts won’t let me sooooo yeah.
Title/Character Select - "Yes. High five! —And don’t throw things at me again! That hurt. It hurt my feelings, and my emotions are now bruised. And my leg’s kinda hurtin’, too. Boom."
BuzzBuzz - "A bee I am… not." OH LAUNDRY THAT IS SO AWESOME THAT THEY INCLUDED THAT PART IN!!
And yes, I died at "Oh no, an enemy" and "I’m dead… Do you wanna hear my story again?" "Yes." "Yes? Okay." Do you wanna hear my story again? Okay. URRKKKAUUGGHHURGGHHH… I’m really dead now." OH MAN THAT’S AWESOME.
Winters/Jeff - I just love this song overall. Jeff’s voice sounds really awesome! Plus talking with the monkey, haha. And I love at the end how Jeff like cuts off his dad, and it’s all like THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR LEAVING ME IN A BOARDING SCHOOL, AND LIKE, NOT EVEN REMEMBERING MY NAME. Lol. Dr. Andonuts is a terrible father (:
Saturn Valley/Grapefruit Falls - “Are they actually gonna wait for three minutes— OMG THEY ARE. This. Is. AWESOME. <333” Really, my favorite part is just listening to them waiting under the waterfall. I think the sounds fit really well with the game as if it would actually sound like that. ♥
Maze - "The Maze is a scary place! Full of ducks and nooses and moles all over the place! Through the… Maze? …Through the… Maze. …I’m… walking… through the… Maze." LOL.
Pokey Means Business (Man, I really think this name is gonna stick forever even though it’s not even legitimate!) - During the transition to 8-bit to hardcore rock, I totally recognized the Another One Bites the Dust reference they threw in, OH YESSSsss BUT IT STILL WOULD BE A LOT COOLER IF THERE WAS A SUPER ULTRA AWESOME RAP TO GO WITH THIS IT WOULD BLOW MY MIIIIIIIND!!!
Man, can you imagine what sort of LP rap they’d make if Duane & Brando didn’t split up? Dalaam, Fourside, Magicant, Summers, Tenda Village, Moonside, Deep Darkness, Lost World, Cave of the Past… MANNNN the EarthBound fandom really does get screwed over all the time.
(No I don’t own this but I think they’re cool enough to not sue me.)
Likes of 2009 - Doing this made me wish Tumblr put the dates on all posts.
(Hey, it’s still January, isn’t it? So I can still write something about New Years, right?)
So I thought, hey it’s ‘New Years’, why don’t I post all the Likes I did in 2009? I think it’d be a nice cool tradition to do. (Oh, please no fads. Let’s be original here!) I post interesting things on Facebook and rarely on Tumblr, but the things I Like I find unnecessary to reblog them, because you know, they’re already outthere, and reblogging them again is hardly necessary. Plus, I only Like them because I personally find these specific posts excellent. I only just joined Tumblr late last year, so it’s not much this time around, but next year when I do this again hopefully it’ll show a timeline of my growing interests through the year.
Just so I don’t sound like a broken record, I’ll remind that all my Likes means that they are something very exceptional to me, and also that most of the people I follow are discovered through Tumblr Tuesdays.

Thanks for the quote, random stranger. (:
