    i have one of these! i haven't checked it in like a week, but there aren't a lot of members in my area anyway.

    also, it is gosh-dang hard to find people to date, but i'm trying to be a little more social and hoping that out of all the people i end up meeting at least one will want me to put my/want to put their genitalia in my/their mouth(s).

    hello internet

    it was my birthday recently and that means it is a year now since the last time there was a lady in my life. this doesn't bother me much i had a pretty good year regardless

    but i skyped with an old friend recently and she was telling me about all the exciting sexual adventures she'd had that year and i thought 'that would be nice i should start meeting girls again and having exciting sexual adventures with them'

    so i am going to have to figure out how to do that

    i have heard good things about okcupid from these threads i might try to make a profile there? otherwise i guess i will have to start doing new things and getting out more and hmmm i don't know where to begin really. if social interaction came easily to me i wouldn't be here posting on the internet

    but i have zero selfloathing and nice hair and that seems to me to be the most important part so i'm going to try and parlay that into an exciting sexual adventure

    wish me luck

    okcupid sucks a serious donkey dick in my area, I tried it for a bit after the last thread and could not find a girl who was even worth talking to over the internet

    it's okay though my plan of action is to keep finding these horrible skanks at the bars around here and just continue my only real relationship with my dog who is always so happy when I come home. It is platonic, he is very religious.

    so the key to writing profiles on dating sites is to phrase all your negative personality aspects as positive/neutral things right

    "antisocial" ==> "introspective"

    "never gets out" ==> "prefers quiet nights at home"

    "horny as fuck" ==> "sexually open"

    "self-loathing" ==> "self-contemplative"

    etc.

    right

    Went uptown with a couple of friends the other day. They were passing through en route to an airport, because apparently ours is cheaper than theirs.

    One of them is dating a girl who's currently in South America performing some kind of admin job, so his grand plan was to fly over there and surprise her, and as well as his suitcase he's laden down with bags from clothes stores

    Anyway because me and the other guy are apparently ten we may or may not have teased this friend about the nature of the gifts he's bought her, prompting a grown man to blush like his face had been instantly sunburned

    I guess it's sort of relevant because they originally met on OkC but the whole surprise visit thing just struck me as such a d'awwww gesture

    I know quite a few guys at work that use it and they seem to think it's pretty good. They're all a bit older than me (late 30s and 40s) so I don't know what it's like for the younger crowd

    I have an OKCupid profile, it is pretty lame. I wrote it while angry and drunk.
    http://www.okcupid.com/profile/mr_remmington

    Also, I have a huge mega crush on a co-worker who kinda shot me down but is still really cool to hang out with and work with. It's not awkward, just depressing. She just said, "I dont really like to date my co-workers" and I was all "well, I'm not gonna work here forever (winky)" she just blushed after that and we never spoke of it again.
    but on the inside I'm all

    I'm dating this girl and she is super cool and great

    She has like the skinniest torso ever

    She's got this great butt, and arms and legs with meat on them and no visible bones but her body literally looks like

    ((

    The minus is not part of her body but it was necessary to move the lines to the right

    So I have asked out a few girls lately

    They all said no. But really, that's not a bad thing. Before that I was getting caught up in my own indecisions and lack of ability to make a plan and commit to it. I didn't ask anyone out for ages, so thinking about people I liked was bad for me on the inside. Now I am asking and even if they turn me down I at least then know what the answer is. I can move on. That seems much healthier.

    So I'm not doing so well in the 'ol game right now. But that's okay, because at least I'm playing and giving it an honest go.

    Yeah, I get that Solar. I'm actually feeling better now that I'm making attempts to get ladies to go out with me. I've basically adopted "What's the worse that can happen, they say no?" I've learned that it really only gets awkward after rejection if you let it.

    Well I mean I asked this girl out and I was so nervous

    But then she said no and I was not nervous any more

    I just went home after the thing we were at and played some X-Box.

    This is true of all situations ever

    Some people can appreciate and see that you are kind of awkward and will be like "no it's okay everything is cool"

    But people feed of how you handle stuff

    If you're standoffish and weird, most of the time, they won't really see any reason to do anything but return the favor

    If you're at University, get involved in student life

    Just do it. Doesn't even matter where. Get involved in the student community and things will start going up from there. This can help with lady problems, social problems, boredom problems, exercise problems. Getting involved can help solve a hell of a lot of problems.

    Doing pretty darn well with this. It sucks when it happens, but its so much better then spending months longing for something that isn't happening.

    The only thing that sucks is I stopped taking my meds on accident for a bit

    She deals with me when I'm fucked up in the head just fine

    But my sleeping patterns get all janked up

    Like I fell asleep at 11 p.m. last night and woke up at 2 a.m. and so I'm gonna pass out eventually today at random, which makes getting to see or or even talk to her tough

    Luckily we're on break and I have time to try and fix it.

    Guys things were going great with my l'Cie girlfriend, Lightning. We've been dating and running from PSICOM for months, but yesterday I caught her making out with Sazh. I don't think I can ever forgive her and I feel so alone right now.

    right

    "likes to put things in butt" ==> "likes to put things in butt"

    could i just use that for my whole profile

    i mean in the end that's the whole point anyway right

    dating sites exist for the facilitation of buttstuff

    I met my girlfriend of about 6 months on okcupid. It was adorable and everything and on the first date we kissed a lot. You guys should do it to and join. I've gotten a couple friends on it and they all seem to have promising results. If you're feeling awkward about having a conversation with someone online realize that they've put themselves on the same website. Also here is rolo's old thread with some great tips about making your okcupid
