” I need to find a girlfriend. That’s why I need to carve out just a little more time. I think maybe even another five to 10 — how much time does a woman want a week? Maybe 10 hours? That’s kind of the minimum? I don’t know. — Elon Musk on allocating time for dating. “

    +iMeatbag which is why one can be either a person or public figure.

  • +iMeatbag actually that shows exactly how small a person you are to assume that. ditto your commenting on me instead of the topic. relationships are a two way thing or they do not last.
  • 1d
  • +iMeatbag men have careers and expect women to support them, they do not support women’s careers back, and it’s why men don’t ask about combining careers and romance or how to have orgasms as women’s magazines constantly point out. he has basically seeking rentable golddiggers – not a relationship with a woman.
  • +iMeatbag on a topic where it’s men and women’s relationships. Irony Metre. Explodes.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo

    I thought the double divorce and 5 kids was a warning flag 🙂

    To think you only have 10 hours a week, well you’d have to be someone equally time poor. No idea about Amber’s schedule but I’ve heard these actors can do a lot of hours while they’re on a project. They can also move around a bit as is the case now with her in a different country.

    Also, for someone who claims to work 80+ hour weeks and has 5 kids, 10 hours sounds quite generous.

    Totally disagree with all the “men have careers and expect women to support them stuff”. Yeah maybe some baby boomers still think that way and maybe even some of the younger ones, but it’s dying out.

    If only feminists would try to eliminate all the inequalities and not just the ones they don’t like. But I don’t think that will happen. The feminists want it all. Hopefully it will all come out in the wash – eventually.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
     Amber Heard is a complete red flag cascade, I agree.
     relationship rules are scaleable and I disagree with celebrity exceptions.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo

    I didn’t say Amber was a red flag cascade and frankly don’t know what you mean by that.

    I also didn’t say anything about celebrity exceptions. That any of them are celebrities is irrelevant.

    I also don’t know what you mean by relationship rules being scaleable. Can you give an example?

    Maybe it would be easier if you just say what you think he should do. Or her.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    first – thank you for actually talking about points instead of m/f talking points.
    To back up, and state the actual point of what I am saying is that no one can schedule a relationship. those are based on actual time, shared interests and building a life together. and men who can’t listen to women, really won’t be able to offer anything that a woman can relate to.
  • people really need to get beyond men are wallets and women are baby factories.
    what makes a relationship is not different for rich people than poor people at the human level. for someone to say that anyone – male or female is such a prize that any prospective partner should not expect to be treated like an equal. .. and be scheduled…
  • 17h
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo
  • Ok I think I know what you’re trying to say with not being able to scheduling a relationship; you just don’t know what will happen so it’s impossible to schedule it. Fair enough.

    But he didn’t actually say anything about scheduling. You did. He asked how many hours a week does a women need. You can make all the assumptions you want but you’re only speculating.Anyone who can’t listen is going to run into problems. So much for not talking about m/f points.

    I agree that people need to get beyond the men are wallets thing. If a girl asks me to buy them a drink I’ll politely tell them to fuck off and/or buy their own drink. I don’t think anyone is going to get beyond the women are baby makers thing anytime soon since men can’t yet have babies and women can.

    No one on here said that relationships are different for rich people vs poor people. No one said anything about people being prizes or not being treated equal. Maybe you’re getting confused with a different conversation you’re having at the same time?

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    did you not read all the comments? everyone is so quick to assumptions, and switching between these two particular people the thread is actually about and widely varying social norms. having to fend off misinterpretations defeats actual communication.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo
    I read all the comments and I don’t know where you’re getting this stuff from; not from this post.

  • reality still applies and not interested in a rehash of sexism or the communication differences of gender. that said, you are far politer than most.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo

     so you’re here to talk about sexism – for some reason? you think the original article is sexist? how is it sexist? I think you might be just a bit off topic.

    sorry but I really don’t know what you mean or what we’re talking about here. you seem to be adding content that wasn’t from here and want to discuss the external content.

    why would I not be polite? you haven’t insulted me (personally) as yet.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
     no, I put a quip on an article and then all the miscommunication started with one and this extended chat with you at the same time as other actually political threads, this was the least political thing, just celebrity puffery. anyway. goodnight.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    “why would I not be polite? ” that’s a question other posters need to ask themselves really.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo

    I guess maybe some people took your comment more seriously than intended – myself included. it didn’t come across as a joke at all.

    it’s a bit unfair to say someone shouldn’t date just because they don’t have much free time. Nicola Tesla himself never dated apparently but it was his choice – en.wikipedia.org – Nikola Tesla – Wikipedia

    I think it’s understandable that commenters took you seriously given the poster and the likely followers. after all this wasn’t posted by “women’s day” or one of those gossip magazines, but instead by the “The Elon Musk Fan Club”. surely you can accept that.

    Anyway. seems we’ve wrapped this thing up. Good bye 🙂

     people reading differently than as written is internet culture.
    As for Tesla, he was gay and last century – he kept 2 apartments one to live in and squire rich women he got to invest, and another for where he took hustlers and D/L other men. . and would you really date someone who only had 10 hours a week for you? that’s not much of a relationship at all.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
     oh, also to answer your question about cascade flags on her: 1. just divorced. 2. bisexual, which alters the relationship dynamic 3. also career fit & match. 4 life plan overlap – all suitability factors. the high drama women ride is rarely worth the price of admission.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
     I agree that this was way overblown for a Musk fan club – but the concept of a man offering a woman a 10 hour window for a relationship; when male/female differ greatly on what that word means and how much time things take, turned out to be potentially instructive for those of us on line in the same fan seats. After all, Putting a problem out there and crowding the solution is the geek way.

 

DAY TWO: a female Musk fan wades in.

  • Alaina Moore's profile photo
    I don’t think it’s your place to define what “relationship” means to these two busy people or decide how much time they require to be happy with each other.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    I don’t think you know what conversation is if all you have to contribute is “you’re wrong”.
     Are you under the impression that the people talked about are aware of what social media says or that there will be some kind of vote?
  • Alaina Moore's profile photo

    ​ I didn’t say you were wrong. I said it’s not your place to presume you know enough about them to make judgments about their relationship.

    And I don’t say that because Elon/Amber care about what you think. I say that because we all need to keep our noses to ourselves a bit more and stop feeling entitled to judge other people’s life choices.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    discussing the concept of relationship is hardly imposing it. and you resist your own advise.
  • Alaina Moore's profile photo
    OK
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    thank you. I am going to delete my comments from yesterday now to prevent continued distortions of context.
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo

     “people reading differently than as written is internet culture”. I don’t think “Internet culture” applies to interpreting someones statement. If you were talking about Internet lingo and the like ok, but people on the Internet are just people. They can and will interpret things however they do. With billions of users you can’t expect everyone to act as if they were all the same.

    if I only had 10 hours a week to commit to a relationship then I don’t see the problem in dating someone else who only had 10 hours a week to commit to a relationship.Apparently Tesla was not gay. If anything asexual. Do you have a reference to support your claim? Or are you just making it up?

    I know what you mean in that you think Amber is messed up, but I don’t know what you mean by the term “cascade flags”. Are you saying that these problems are cascading? It just seems a strange context for using that word. Anyway it doesn’t matter.

    Musk was merely asking the question. He didn’t put out a tender requesting applications which you seem to be implying (more or less). The media grabbed it and people attached their assumptions. There’s no proof that he wouldn’t be willing or able to offer more time, he just asked casually, “How much time does a women need a week? 10 hours?”. It was an approximation. When he made that statement (a long time ago now) he wanted a girl friend. However he has a problem; he’s incredibly time poor. He was just trying to work out what’s realistic.

    If you had the opportunity to date him and didn’t want to because 10 hours isn’t enough for you then that’s fine. Each to their own. But it seems Amber is fine with it. And it seems Elon is fine with Amber even if you don’t like her. It’s really none of anyone’s business but since their celebrities it’s basically forced upon us by the media.

    All I’m really getting from you is that you don’t like either of them (at least from a relationship point of view). Ok then.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    I’m a lesbian, I wouldn’t date either of them and they would certainly not be interested in dating me – and I’d rather spend 10 non-date hours with Musk if given a choice of meeting one or the other.
  • in an actual conversation people talk face to face and the internet lacks that – people tend to react and not interact and more than that – everyone has an opinion and no one considers that other people have life experience or professional experience.
    I’ve been on-line since the 1990s, not just seeing how Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 changed and the amateurs rose and intellectual content declined. even in person, most cannot tell the difference between an opinion vs a professional analysis.
    the internet now is manic overreaction, with actual politicians little better than the social media flamewars.

    Michael Vescovo's profile photo

     ok then.

    not everyone is the same. sometimes it may be necessary to generalise to get your point across and that maybe be what you’re doing. however some people do consider the experience of others.

    it actually seems rather pointless telling people of our own opinion if it wasn’t asked of us, but yet we do it anyway. human nature I guess.

    but if not for our opinions then there wouldn’t be much discussion in any of these posts let alone in daily life outside of the Internet.

    I too have been online since the 90’s as would a lot of people. But that hasn’t really effected my interpretation of comments as it seems to have you. I still view people as people (although sometimes I wonder if there is a bot at the other end).

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo

    part of the problem is what posters project onto each other and getting passed assumptions, especially when they are not shared and crossing multiple demographics of inequality between persons; human nature – in any event – I think we (you and I) are at the point of mutual understanding – putting into a Male Person and a Female Person generality:

    For women, “relationship” is not just the now of it, but the future – and offspring – and part of that is parenting. a person with no time now is not likely to have more time later.

    Frankly, men are cheated in many ways by the system they created.

  • I find it hard to find people who are not Bots and also able to be literal and literary together and not pedantic zero sum circle jerk dom/sub battles of witlessness. (in fact, people are pretty much the same, just the baggage varies predictably)
  • Michael Vescovo's profile photo
    “a person with no time now is not likely to have more time later.” I don’t agree with that assertion. There’s a lot of variables that could change. However I do agree that Musk is unlikely to change much in that regard in the foreseeable future.

    I can’t speak for what women think but I know they’re not all the same, as not all men are the same. As a man, I see relationships as entirely in the future, so I don’t understand your differentiation.

    I’m sorry I don’t understand your last paragraph. Maybe I’m a bot and I just don’t know it?

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
     apparently they are officially dating.
    7 billion plus people and everyone thinks they are unique.
    I have been over-trained in communication, it’s partly why I can’t communicate with people: but “pedantic zero sum circle jerk dom/sub battles of witlessness” means when people focus on the smallest aspect, fight over word nuance and end up saying nothing and exchanging nothing. the Internet really changed conversations into points battles, especially when there are none to make.
