TL;DR:

Welp. I suppose I deserved that.

That was just a little harsh, don’t you think?

Yup, I deserved the TL;DR.

Okay, so the dig was specifically about the moaning thing, which you then followed up with 2 comments with and about macho posturing — none of which were supposed to be serious.

Please, tell me that was about as serious as Johnny Bravo. I’m getting a little worried now.

You really are more “the transporter” than “the fast and furious” right?

… and that it has been good-natured on my part, not to be taken seriously.

<lets out breath in relief> Good.

Confidence is great. Being a little cocky is great. But when it’s overdone, all that will get you is an eyeroll.

I appreciated your reasons for liking the musical form(s) in Metal for instance and would be interested to hear more about what enthuses you about them/it if you’d enjoy discussing that :)

I can do that :) I’m going to take my time on this though. I still have off topic bookmarked.

It gladdens my heart when I see, or hear of, people being genuinely happy.

But it’s much too easy to become smug and start bragging. Acting like you’ve found the secret to love. No one needs to see/hear that. I do make an effort not to become that person. The reality is that plain luck has a whole lot to do with it.

I think it better not to have any regrets at all.

I’m not sure that’s even possible. Choosing something almost always means rejecting something else. Which brings with it an interesting problem; is it possible to want what you already have? Most people will end up wanting the other thing.
