I have recently been dating a Libertarian girl I met at a UKIP meeting. (Politics in this case really does make strange bedfellows). This happened as a direct result of my decision to step outside my comfort zone and start taking a more proactive approach to my love life. Like most people, I cannot bear to have a relationship with someone who does not share my political views. So I went where I was most likely to find girls who shared my worldview. Which led me to a local UKIP meeting on a mission to meet someone special. Who knew that it would be such a rainbow of diversity and hot non-authoritarian chicks? Colour me extremely surprised!

However, it's not all good news.

After a long discussion about "the future" it emerges that she wants me to enter into a contract with her that defines the benefits and responsibilities our relationship in quite heavy duty legalese, that I am not comfortable with signing. But as a Libertarian she seems to think that our relationship is not valid until it has been defined in terms of contract law. On the one hand, I can see where she's coming from, but on the other hand, this behaviour makes her seem like a fucking lunatic. As a Libertarian myself I find it strange that I am struggling so much with the concept of this relationship agreement, indeed there are clauses in it that would protect me from any gold-digging behaviour on her part. But something about it just seems so wrong. It's also rather too similar to Amy and Sheldon for comfort.

She also chided me for not using an offshore deferred bond to minimise my tax liabilities. I thought that was rather presumptuous of her.

I've been battling against nodding off for the last 15 minutes. This doesn't happen often, but today it's in full force. Not sure what is triggering it. Well, fatigue, sure. But why?
