“During the return drive to Oslo today we listened to the radio in preparation for the one-minute silence. As it was declared that all the people of Norway, trains, buses and cars were to observe the minute’s silence, we pulled over on to the hard shoulder. This was on the main E18 route to the capital. Every vehicle came to a stop. There were many that stood outside their vehicles in a service station and the rest sat in their cars. The motorway was completely empty in both directions with all vehicles on the hard shoulders. Both myself and my wife struggled to hold back our tears. It was a very strong and emotional experience to witness such a silence.”—Lee Jones-Abrahamsen in Oslo (BBC News)
Have you ever just not been attracted to anybody?
Nobody you’re dating or talking to is giving you that…. thing. The thing that makes you look forward to their conversations, seeing, talking to them, anything that really involves them. It’s not so much that you’re content with being by yourself more so than it is that your taste buds for a potential significant other has just kind of went dull at the moment.
And its just not that one person, it could be multiple people. You look at someone and even though you find them obviously physically attractive or even mentally attractive, you’re still not attracted. You can’t really tinker in your brain to change this, its more of a, “lets wait this out” mental state.
Usually I would just suggest that maybe the cause of it is because you’re not particularly looking for anything. But even when you’re opened to the possibility of having someone and have that dull taste for other people it gets kind of frustrating. Because like I said, you can’t force the taste. Naturally you just have to wait for either your craving to come back or hope somebody comes around to ignite it.
