We just went to a restaurant and then a pub. It was the exact same date as the previous Vietnamese woman. Same restaurant, same pub.
Oh yeah, she was a bit chubby. Not the worst looking woman I've met off the internet but that's quite a high (or low, not sure which) bar. Compared to the other Vietnamese woman...I'd say she was...maybe more attractive? Tough to say. The other woman was slimmer but had a weird face. Something up with her eyes. But this woman had big eyes. I think some acne. Wore bright red lipstick, which is nice, I guess. Made an effort. I don't know. They each had their pros and cons physically.
Conversation, pretty boring. I just don't care about this stuff any more. I made some effort. I talked more than her. But I just didn't care. I knew it wasn't going anywhere even before the date. These internet dates never go anywhere.
But I asked her about that famous picture where the US military is taking refugees by helicopter from the embassy. We all know it but it's this one:
She had no idea what I was talking about. Neither did that other woman WHO WORKED IN THE EMBASSY.
This girl was from Ho Chi Minh City. But she said that this probably took place in Hanoi. That didn't sound right to me because I know Hanoi is in the north. So she didn't even know that much. She didn't know that the US embassy is in Ho Chi Minh City. AND SHE'S FROM HO CHI MINH CITY!
I think the other girl was also from Ho Chi Minh City. It was known as Saigon until the end of the war.
What's going on in Vietnam? How is it possible that she doesn't know this? And she wasn't even interested. She quickly changed the subject about how it's very warm in Ho Chi Minh City. I asked what the insect situation is like and she said yes, there are bugs. That was it. No elaboration. I guess it's just the only thing she knows so she can't compare it to anything.
And she got the haggis. I asked her if she knows what's in it. She said she didn't. After she ate it, when we're in the pub, I told her that it's lungs and heart and whatnot traditionally cooked in a sheep's stomach. She was totally unphased. "We eat these things in Vietnam anyway".
She did clean her plate. It was impressive. I left quite a bit of food. I'm not good in restaurants at the best of times but I also found a hair so lost my appetite.
Anyway, probably the last internet date. I didn't even bother asking if she wants to go out again. I don't want to go out again.
I mean really, I didn't want to go out with most of these women who I met up with. But I'd still usually ask them out just to prove that it's possible to get more than one or two dates with an internet woman.
How many women did I meet who I was actually attracted to and wanted to see again? There's was big-titted Chinese Ming. I think the boobs were just padding but we also had a good conversation and had a lot of shared interests.
There was huge-titted Korean Ji-Yung. Those were real. Just big Asian tits on this short, slightly-chubby girl. I don't even remember anything about her other than the size of her breasts but I would have married her, no question about it.
Then maybe that Japanese woman who was a bit older than me. She looked great. Worked as a dental assistant. Never seen such a fashionably-dressed person. But I was terrible on the date. It was an early one.
I think that's it. Out of about 50 women, I was only interested in three of them. Poor odds.
I bet all of these women are still single. I know Ming is because I still have her on WeChat. She posts loads of pictures but never with a guy. Ji-Yung is probably back in Korea. That Japanese woman might still be in London because she had a job where she could presumably continue to get visas for. Dental nurse.
So yeah, hopefully I'm done with this shit and my ladyfriend will move in. I actually like going out with her. There's no pressure. We can talk or we can not talk.
Also bought a printer for some upcoming litigation. Have to print out a bunch of documents. It's a laser printer. I only need to print in black and white so didn't need injet. Supposed to be cheaper in the longrun. It was the same price as inkjet printers anyway.
It's pretty good, I guess. Gets the job done, anyway. Prints really fast.
The only problem was the wireless setup. I paid about £10 for the wireless model. Then it was absolutely impossible to set this shit up. Spents hours.
You can also plug it into your computer but it doesn't come with the cable. Makes sense.
So yesterday, when I was waiting for that Vietnamese woman (she was late) I walked around and found a PC repair shop. They had some shit in there so I asked if they have a cable. The guy couldn't find a new one but he said he'd sell me a used one for £2. On Amazon, they're about £4 new. I saw one for less than £2 but it looked dubious and got bad reviews. So I agreed.
Today, I plugged it into the computer and no problem. I was able to install the drivers and all that shit. I was also able to set up the wireless no problem.
Why didn't these options for setting up the wireless appear when I was trying to set it up without the cable? There's a bit where you have to type in your router's wifi key or whatever. I never was able to get to that stage without the cable. It's madness.
Anyway, it works now without the cable. Can print shit wirelessly. So that's cool, I guess. The future is here.
