Epistemic status: trawlin’ for anecdotes/commiserations; satiating-morbid-curiosity
I’m also interested in non-romantic relationships, but I’m particularly interested in hearing about long term relationships between folks within EA and/or LW and someone[s] outside it.
By outside of EA/Rat I don’t just mean “not active in the communities”. I mean: doesn’t have the philosophical machinery of rationality [ethics/meta-ethics/epistemology/cog sci/etc] and doesn’t seem inclined to pick it up.
Things that I’m particularly curious about:
how long these relationships lasted
how you feel about the relationship: in what ways was/is it successful or unsuccessful?
if your partner doesn’t have a “rationalist frame”, how you deal with that
any other random thoughts this elicits
