Our utility company cut off the power to our home while we had some work done near the service entry. they did it no charge, and on short notice. They asked us when we wanted it off and when to hook it back up. What the guy did was pull the meter, after verifying that we had all breakers off, then he cut the lines and rolled them back away from the porch roof, so the roofers wouldn't come near them. He coiled them up and suspended them from the support cable. When he hooked them back up, he put a sleeve around the connection near the service entrance at our request.

I was an electrician in a past life. I'm not a hot wire yahoo ... I turn off power prior to working on any household power circuit, and I STILL check unknown circuits dead with my meter.... call me Monk ... but I'm still alive, and not by happenstance, either.
Square, Plumb, or Level ... Pick two.

I tried online dating site when I was feeling better but the absolute constant rejection you face as a guy just got me down. Sending hundreds of messages and getting a few replies only for them to stop responding mid call made me get terrible self esteem. Makes me think I either must be hideous or have a terrible persona. I haven brought myself up to since. I suffered with poor self esteem my whole life and frankly I feel as a guy there isn a damn thing to do about it. We don have any outlets in order to assist and it just further annoys me.

I haven gone on a date in years and haven had a honey in 5 years. I don even get sound advice anymore. I gotten so used to being single that it not even an issue anymore, It normal or how life is supposed to be. I don know if I accepted fate as being single forever and never locating a perfect person. I have absolutely no freaking idea where men and women my age, 28, Do properly go. The more I tried online dating the more I certain it a scam and doesn work. Due to my past romance relationship being an emotional abusive one I have little to no trust in women. I sorry she ruined a completely gender but she did.

How do other guys deal with this? the deficiency of self esteem that comes from near constant rejection? Having already low self esteem and no confidence just keep trying isn plausible sadly. It only makes trouble worse.
