Yeah, like I said. It's more complex than that. I wouldn't pick anyone solely based on it. But it can be a point of annoyance and argument.
That being said, like another poster above, I would not willingly date someone with no broader appreciation of culture than Adam Sandler movies and shitty pop music. Nor have I. All the relationships I've been in in recent history, I've been fortunate to have common ground in such things.
You're never going to agree on absolutely everything, but it's nice to have many things in common.
I actually understand where she's coming from on this. One of the first long-term relationships I was in when I was 20 years old, the breakup was precipitated on a difference in pop culture. It's always more complex than that, of course, but it was a point of contention.
Frankly I'd be annoyed as fuck by a woman who listened to shit like Adele and Lady Gaga all the time.
I talked to a marine who did joint training with the FFL. He said they were as good as anyone in their echelon. This was years ago and I don't remember many of the details, but I remember him saying they drank a lot.
I recall him disliking the FAMAS for some reason, as well, although I don't remember why.
You pretty much won't find anyone who has worked alongside the FFL saying bad things about them. They get in really shitty places, too.
One year after YouTube, the online video powerhouse, invited members to become partners and added advertising to their videos, the most successful users are earning six-figure incomes from the Web site. For some, like Michael Buckley, the self-taught host of a celebrity chatter show, filming funny videos is now a full-time job.
I've got some red in the beard too (not that I let it go out more than a few days at best.) I've also got some white hairs on one side of my face, and I was born in the late 70's. Handful of white hairs in my sideburn on the same side, too, but virtually none on the other.
Thankfully baldness skipped past me and my dad, too. One grandfather was bald at 22 or 23, other wasn't. I have an uncle and his son on my dad's side who are both bald.
