I just found out that my boyfriend of 6 months doesn't have a passport
I don't want to sound like an elitist, but who in the fuck am I dating and how do I get out of this?
Wow, you sound like an asshole. Please break up with him so he can move on and date a guy wh isn't a shallow fuck.
My boyfriend didn't have a passport when we met either, but since then he got one, and we've been to Europe 3 times together.
You're an asshole OP
Hopefully he'll soon realize that you are indeed an asshole and shallow fuck and make plans to travel with someone more interesting than you.
Cut him loose, you will be doing the right thing.
It's not your job to educate an untraveled boor.
Dump him immediately, OP. You need someone cultured who can accompany you on your annual holiday to Cancun.
I have a passport but no driver's license. My passport *is* my I.D. Do you think I'm beneath you as well, OP?
What is his background and how old is he? There is a big difference between never wanting to experience other cultures and never having had the opportunity.
I went years without a passport because I was in the military it wasn't required to go abroad.
r8 is right. We'll need details.
In the marry, kill screw game I know where op falls for me.
What did you serve him for Thanksgiving dinner, OP? Did you go with the seven appetizers and six pies?
r7 should get a state issued id. passports are for intering countries...and in many areas you with be subject to arrest without proper id. No, a passport is not proper id.
Where were you planning on traveling with him before you found this out?
Horrors! Quick the smelling salts!
Betrayal is such a hurtful thing.
I'm 83 and don't have one either. What's your point?
From the Galloping Gourmet thread:
Somebody trolldar'd the OP a couple months back and busted him for starting three or four threads at the same time as 3 or 4 different personas. One was a Galloping Gourmet thread in which the GG announced one of his many breakups with his imaginary bf; in another, the OP and his bf were still together, but OP was bitter about staying home sick while his bf attended a bbq; and in yet a third thread, OP and imaginary bf were blissfully happy together and had just spent the weekend visiting OP's dream town somewhere in New England.
R7, like you, I have a (well used) passport, but no driver's license. I do have a driver, however. I suspect that OP would be willing to date me on that basis. All the more reason not to date him.
I don't need one.
OP, you're an idiot.
That is all.
My stuck up boyfriend freaked out when I told him I don't have a passport. Who the fuck am I dating and how do I get out of this?
Can't believe I wasted 6 months of my life with this elitist bitch.
"Who in the fuck am I dating?"
A guy without a passport..!!!!
Get a grip, MARY!
When I found out my BF didnt have a passport we worked through the emotional trauma and then we got a passport
He can always get a passport so that part of the situation is easily remedied.
Not sure there's any remedy for your lethal combination of pretension and lack of character, OP.
R21... Break up with the OP, you're too good for him.
[quote]No, a passport is not proper id.
I dated someone for a few months before I realized he had spent every semester in college in residence (never been abroad, never traveled anywhere), and then, later, that he had only started a prestigious MFA program but never completed it.
While not dealbreakers themselves, they signified the beginning of the end for me. The guy was dishonest and a complete fraud.
R28. So your bf lied and said he traveled a lot when he didn't. If that's the situation with the OP, it would make a big difference and I would stop making fun of him.
And THIS is why I love you cunts.
Help him get a passport then. May be his best chance to get the fuck away from you
Take it down a notch, OP. So what? I actually do want to go travel but I can't really afford the fees right now and have an issue with my birth certificate. You could go your whole life and not experience all of the US, you don't have to go anywhere actually do experience different cultures and people. I've honestly never had any food that's not soul food, American, Mexican, or Italian. There's so much even here to see because many cultures are here as well as abroad. Places are wonderful but they are special because of what is attached to them.
Don't worry, OP. A passport isn't needed for your weekly repast at the Olive Garden.
Elitist Snooty Traveller just tossed this one out there with minimal effort. Dud. 1/10.
Approximately 38% of US Americans have passports. Many of them don't have maps.
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 33% of Americans hold passports.
If you whittle that down to the percentage of that 33% who are gay, and then of those who might actually be interested in the OP, the number gets miniscule.
You can't afford to have such high expectations OP. Better unclutch.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
