I agree. I think they’ve never found success before because any girl they casually dated in the past refused to be absorbed into the Borg and things were broken off. There’s no way this is the first girl any of them have dated. I bet there have been plenty of potential girlfriends that were shot down quickly by another family member.

Yeah, aside from that weird sing-song accent they got from Dad, the boys all present well. They're average to not-too-bad-looking-at-all and seem generally thoughtful and blandly nice. They've dated, I'm sure. But no sane woman is going to stick around for long, and if the recent videos of Paul and John are any indication, the manboys still have no clue why they can't attract long term partners. Luke's engagement may be causing even more confusion. "What's he got that we don't?" they're probably asking themselves.

I wonder if spousal selection in the Arndt's is anything like those clubs who allow members to blackball new membership candidates. In which case, it may be a long time before there is another unfortunate woman who manages to run the gauntlet.

My prediction is that in 3 or 4 years time he’ll still be the only Arndt boy who “made it”, and his children will grow up with 12 weird uncles but no cousins. I think the others will be like “see! It’ll happen! God will make it happen like He did for Luke” and take this as a sign that they don’t need to question their approach to life, family & the cult, thus continuing to fly red flags for every woman they manage to encounter.

Well, according to the unmarried fundies thread I guess I have to eat my words. James too!

What in the love of all that’s holy is going on this year?! 
 

I don’t know if I should buy a lottery ticket or go hide under my bed in a blanket fort. Is this a good apocalypse or a bad one? I need to know!

So if James proposes to this woman, will a bunch of Arndts be hiding in the bushes again? 
 

Also, I am very disappointed her name isn’t Catherine.

I forget, is James man boy number 5?  If so he must be 35 or so.  I'm curious to know how old both Paige and Catherine are.

As per Paige's Facebook, they've been in a relationship since October 25, 2022. Also, no surprise but James is a concealed and carry instructor as per his Facebook page.   She posted this photo with a few of the other Arndt siblings.

He’s number 6 and Luke is number 4. I think the younger guys are probably fine with their older brothers being in relationships. But I wonder what numbers 1, 2, 3, and 5 think. Are they jealous? Do they worry they will never marry? Is it hard watching a younger brother get engaged? The oldest brother is 42. So these thoughts must occur.

As per the photo, it looks like she won't mind being part of the borg and doing "everything" with James and his siblings.  Not that there's anything wrong with sibling outings, but with the Arndts (and other fundies) it's almost like that's all there is.

I forget, who is number 5, Jude?  I especially wonder how Mark feels, as I feel he is one of the brothers who really wants to get married, at least from his posts on the original Famteam blog.  Well, it's hard to know about some of the other man boys as he and Luke were the ones with diaries featured on that blog.  I also think John feels like the goal is to get married, but I never get that vibe from Paul.  John and Mark need a reality check in terms of their standards for finding a spouse.  Um, maybe follow Luke and Jameses examples??

I've always thought Luke and James sounded more "normal" than the other older manboys.  They have less of that slightly weird accent that Rick has and that is pretty pronounced with John and Mark. It's not regional. Cathy doesn't have it, so I assume it's some affect Rick acquired.  It has a strange sing-song quality to it. 

I hope there is a domino effect and some of the younger Arndts actually start breaking free, with our without partners. But I'm going to guess that a fair number of them will stay with their parents, and then with each other, for the rest of their lives.

What's the probability that woman X will start "dating" Arndt kidult Y and then realize that she's actually way, WAY more attracted to Arndt kidult Z.  I mean, there are so many to choose from that it's a possibility!

It's already incredibly easy to see scenes playing out!  The music, the snow falling, a kidult in his parent's bedroom for his birthday...

I can see the plot twist now... villain Cathy in her white shorty shorts working behind the scenes to convince "Kidult A" that "the girl" is not a good fit for him, only to have it backfire on her as it pushes "the girl" into the arms of "Kidult B"!

This post by Paul suggests other Arndt man boys have girlfriends. 😉

Could this be like an internet fu, see we are really normal and we aren't man boys because we have girlfriends?

Guess it's open mating season on the compound. God must have laid this on their hearts to be fruitful and multiply.

If it's true that there are a "bunch of girlfriends" (and I don't see the Arndts as blatant liars, unlike some fundies we know) something has changed. Rick must have softened his stance on what constitutes an acceptable female friend for his otherwise safe-at-home boys. But I'll still be shocked if there ends up being many marriages.

I noticed in one of his reels Paul said that he Mark, and John live in the auxiliary house. No mention of Luke. I pray to the King of All Penguins that he's living in sin!

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
