    So I found a long and tedious way in which I can keep my Moto 360 2015 on Wear 1.5. I'm tempted to downgrade the Huawei watch too, but I won't.

    Ooh I hope it works out well for you. It sounds like it can be worth your time. Can you let us know how that goes for you?

    I can. I found this a long time ago but was just not interested in doing so for a while now. I'm getting tired of seeing the damn notification on my watch, so I may go for it sometime tomorrow.

    One of my male friends said that I should introduce some of my single girl friends to him because the clock is ticking. I just told him that I'm good when it comes to that. Apparently, he also told a friend of his that I recently met (who is married; he's friends with both her husband and her) the same thing.

    She told me not to mind him, but I saw it as very random that he just said that.

    Do introductions really work anyway? I feel like they only work if you really know the person well.

    Ohh okay, I can understand that. Good luck when you do it though, it would be awesome if this allows you to have everything working the way that you prefer it to.

    I don't know, he just turned 32. I think he meant that time is passing by. I have heard him say before that he has everything you are "supposed" to have, he just needs the right girl.

    Edit: An entry in your blog has me thinking about things related to this, so here we are lol

    Tinder and social dating apps exists. Pursuing hobbies is a way to meet people. Clubbing and bars and concerts can work in the summer time.

    I'm sorry if I'm not being as understanding, I just had an initial gut reaction when I saw this. There's a lot of people who are feeling that "pressure" (had a coworker who was feeling those things last year and she's 27; had a former supervisor who felt that pressure around his age and got married and had triplets; had a colleague at the internship​ who's in her mid 20s starting to feel those pulls).

    It's better to figure that stuff out smartly...I can site too many people who got married for those reasons and divorced with kids because the idea wasn't as good as the execution.

    So Moto Z should be here tomorrow so my Lumia 820 will be going back to sleep. It genuinely still is a good phone, it works well enough mostly. And I love wordflow keyboard.

    I remember those days. If I remember correctly:

    Rue and Laura owned 920s.
    Myself, Sahib and 99 owned 810s to start off.
    Rue's wife owned a 820 (you too as well).

    Funny how times have changed...

    That's so true (on all points).

    It's fine. Wow yeah that sounds challenging but I can get it. I do admit that sometimes I wonder if I should put more effort in trying the dating thing but those thoughts are more so because my sister is getting married and I believe that people will bug me next. Maybe my brother over me (he's the only son) but who knows really.

    I agree with you on that point though. It's interesting that you mention that last point. A girl friend who is the same age as me had a conversation about this with me, and previous male friend. He was talking about the dating struggle. For her, she was saying that she feels like she doesn't have the right reasons to date a guy so she would rather not. It's more like she would like the guy to bring her food if she is hungry and doesn't feel like getting it. For me, I feel the need to know and be sure of my values first.

    Oh girl, you'll know when it's the right one. I thought I had to "work" at dating after my first marriage. I mean, I did all the right things at the right time - so I thought. We dated for a while, moved in together and finally got married after 3 years of cohabitation. Never made it to a third anniversary. Met my present wife and proposed after 3-1/2 weeks. Yes, weeks. Everybody thought I was nuts, oh you're just rebounding, etc. We're celebrating 22 years in August and I can't bear the thought of one day without her.

    Follow your heart. Don't let that stupid brain get in the way.

    Wow, what a story! That's amazing.

    I'm going to take your word for it, thanks for that. The issue in my case is that I need to put myself around different groups of people. Most of my friends are part of a friend group, which is great for the good times and such but I don't want to date any of them that are single.

    They aren't unattractive or anything but aside from me not being their type (that's probably in my head but from what I have observed, I believe that I'm right), I don't like the idea of breaking up the dynamic and always having to see them if it doesn't work out.

    The only phone that's tempting me as a backup for Android is a Moto Z + the wireless charging mod.

    Even so, it'd be in the fall where I'd try to acquire one to test at the earliest.

    The problem is Moto has left a very salty taste in the mouth from the Moto Maxx.

    Hmm why the Moto Z? I'm just curious to know. I would haven't have guessed that, but it's kind of hard for me to guess what you'll like when it comes to phones.

    I get some things you prefer but not all xd

    Things I like:

    OnePlus: Nothing. I enjoyed the OnePlus One. They shat all over OnePlus Two and OnePlus X users with software updates. Have no respect for them and wouldn't buy another device from them. Lots of 3/3T people are watching them VERY closely for software support over the next 12-24 months.

    HTC: their designs and audio game. HTC is one of my favorite old 4 bands (along with Nokia, Moto and Sony; RIM gets an honorary mention here). HTC was my first smartphone so I always want them to do well and stop getting in their own way. Shout to the folks who know about HTC Manila.

    Samsung: Nothing. Been there, done that. Only modern Samsung I came close to buying was a Note 5. I like their hardware a TON but I'd pick EMUI over TouchWiz/Grace UX/Samsung Experience all day. Much respect to the Galaxy S2 - the phone that let people know they were serious about Android.

    LG: dual cams and audio. I like that thickness of the G6 (*cough* Libra *cough*). Dislike the bootloops. Would I buy a V20 over the Mi Note 2 as a do-over? It would have been the last carrier branded phone I'd buy when it was on sale for $320 including tax.

    Nokia: dunno. They are like BB now so we will see. When I want Nokia as I remember, I yearn for a N-series (shout-out to those who used these) or a Lumia 925.

    Huawei: hardware. I still say MIUI>EMUI>Samsung for my taste software wise.

    BB: like the looks of the KeyOne. Battery and design is in my wheelhouse, along with the keyboard. I'm one of those who doesn't use Swype, so going back to a physical keyboard would be a shorter learning curve.

    Moto: stock-ish software and design. But Moto hasn't made a top tier camera since before the X line. And they've shat over some phone owners (my former Moto Maxx/Droid Turbo people understand). I like the Z because it's different and I can get a Qi back. Otherwise, I'm watching them closely too.

    Xiaomi: good value for money. They need to get their head out of their butts and into Eruope seriously in the next two years. MIUI is a heavy *** skin though. Need to see what they do with that over the next two years.

    Apple: nothing. Been there, done that. Only phones they've made since I sold my iPhone 4 (their best design ever with the OG iPhone the second best) I'd consider are the SE and the iPhone 7. Don't need the app fatigue - that's why I left. 10(!) years to get a file manager? iTunes still as prevalent as ever? C'MON man!

    MSFT? Check my screen name out to see what they're doing in the phone market.

    Does this work for you?
